ENJOYABLE VISIT OF THE CORRE
SPONDENTS TO AUGUSTA
As Guests of tho rlodmont Air Lino
l'ulillo Entertainment nnd Private
Iteccptlons Oenulno Southern Hos
pitality Tho Itesolutlons Adoptoil,
Tho largest representation of AVash
ington concspondents which has left
tho city for a pleasure trip In many
years, If not ever before, visited Au
gusta, Go., as tho guests of that city on
Fiidaylast. As travelers tho membcia
of iLc parly were guests of tho Pied
mont Air Line, which was tcprcsentcd
by that genial and cultured host,
Colonel James L. Taylor, general pas
senger agent. Two very handsome
sleepers, stocked with every delicacy of
the season, mado the journey to and
from Augusta one long to bo re
numbered. Arriving at their destina
tion the excursionists weio most
heartily welcomed by acommlttco com
posed of twenty gentlemen, Mr.
.. AV. CarwIIc, president of tho Cot
ton Exchange, chairman. Tho constant
attention and couitesy of the committee
thioughout tho stay of the coircspon-
iicius in tiicir city, made every one feel
at home. Besides the public cnteitatu
ments airanged for the vtsltots there
weie a number of pilvato receptions
given, which pioved to those who had
never before experienced that South
ern hospitality could not well be exag
gerated. The homes of Colonel and
Mrs. Thomas G. Barrett and Mr. and
Mis. T. P. Branch among tho most
luxurious in the city wero thrown
open to the guests, the occasion at tho
first narao being a very elaborate
"punch" and the other a most magnifi
cently arranged open-air Mikado party.
In both instances the elite of the city
welcomed to Gcoigla tho AVashington
representatives of cveiy, leading paper
thioughout the country, who could bo
spared from tho Capital without llsk of
neglecting his business.
Tho time in Augusta was principally
devoted to studying the commercial ad
vantages of the city, the details of which
weio surptising to those of the party
who had not previously visited Georgia.
Tho visits to tho Hotel Bon Air, Au
gusta's winter lcsoit, and the United
States Aisenal weie gieatly enjoyed.
The great social entci tainment occurred
on Satuiday, when an old-fashioned
barbecue was given at tho Locks,
scvcial miles from the city, at a point
wheictho Savannah River is divci ted
into the Augusta Canal the finest
stream and most bountiful hydraulic
water supply of the kind In
the South. The baibecue Is to Georgia
what the clam-bake is to Rhode Island,
and offci s every oppoi tunlty to the visitor
to test the quality of tho food pro
ducts of the neighborhood in which It
may be given. The feast, In spite of a
dicnching rain which delayed the roast
ing of tho mutton and poik (and at
tables through lack of time deprived
many of tho guests of an opportunity to
fotmally express their appieciatiou of
the entertainment) was a gicat success.
The several hours spent In conversation
piiorto partaking of tho "cue," weie
most inteicsting to the stiangcrs, and, to
many, very instructive onloplcal sub
jects, the most lmpoitant of which
from a national point of view probably
Icing that of the luce question.
If the relations which exist between
the white aud negio ncesof Augusta
may be taken as an indication it would
appear to an unbiased mind that the
negioof Georgia Is tieatcd with every
consideiation and lespcct. He is ap
paiently thrifty and contented, and as a
nilo exhibits more genuine happiness
than Is found among his brethren of the
North. Many instances might be cited
where negio men and women who have
become thoroughly incapacitated for
woik have been taken from ono genera
tion by another, and aio now living on
pensions, being allowed to tto about as
they please. The negroes of the city
contilbutcd materially to tho entertain
ment of Augusta's guests, tho hackmen
(all coloied) placing their conveniences
at the free disposal of the visitiug cor
uspondents. The paity left Augusta on the letum
tilp Satuiday night, reaching AVashing
ton early this morning. On the home

day Call pilntcd a slnrlllng story yes
terday charging that Mayor Hayncs and
the entire Newark Aqueduct Board arc
guilty of violation ot law and subject
to fine or impilonmcnt. The charge
Is based on the recent discovery that
Cashier AVIsmer of the aqueduct board
was a defaulter, and that knowledge of
his crime was kept secret by tho mem
hers of the board nnd by tho Mayor.
Tho t'nK says that AVIsmer did not
confess his crime voluntaiily. It was"
first detected by Booukcpcer Southard,
whose name was shoillj urter stilckcn
from the list of clerks. Tho shortage
of .G0O was leported to Sccictny
Oieathcad, tho ofllclal head of the De
paitment. Ills lmmcdlato superior was
Commissioner AVIsmer, father of the
defaulter, to whom the son then con
fessed. The father, who Is a man of
means, paid back themoucy, using hills
for Iho purpose, and thon, according to
the statement of another member of the
finance committee, informed the rest oC
tho committee of tho fact, yet tho de
faulter was not discharged.
The Call shows tho concealment of
the knowledge of such a crime was
punishable by a fine not to exceed $."00,
oi imprisonment not to exceed three
years. Tho Call vleorously demands
that Judge Depue nnd the next grand

was sent fiom tho World olllcu to Intel
view Mr. Cleveland in leference to cer
tain malicious statements which had
been mado in the New York Sun touch
ing his alleged obesity. Upon his re
turn the rcpoitcr brought with him a
scrap of paper upon which Mr. Cleve

I Judge from what von sny, that tho ven

He must bo his own Judge of social de

that lie should, at bis tlmo ot llfo and iu
his apparently pocullar mental condition,
be molested In his amusement.
''The reporter further nvcrrcd that Mr.
Cleveland had talked freely concerning
the editor of the Sun, had denounced
him with mnikcd vehemence and had
given him (tho reporter) to understand
that what ho had said was intended for

Mr. Cleveland was coaise and intem

abuse, had finally made up his mind to
espiess himself touching his persecutor
In terms which If emphatic weie not
"altogether unwai ranted. The policy ot
thus retaliating upon a venomous black
guai d was not considered.
'Thc reporter, who had served the

the accuracy of whoso work had never
been called in question, piepared his
report of the interview, and upon his
repeated declaration that Mr. Cleveland
had consented to tho Interview the mat

Wot Id, If thero had been the slightest
question ns to Mr. Cleveland's wish to
have the American people know some
thing of his opinion of the editor of
tucouii, the mattci would not have
been piloted. The reporter averted
that Mi. Cleveland had started in tho
outset to wiito his entire interview, but
finding It tedious work had dropped
his pencil and had cvprcsscd himself
orally. This Is how the alleged inter
view camo to be published in the
"On the aftcinoon of the day of pub
lication Colonel Daniel Lamont called
at the iroi M olllce with a typewritten
communication fiom Mr. Cleveland, in
which that gentleman denied specific
ally having used the language aUilb

his own hand, ns given above. This
naturally created some surprise.
"Colonel Lamont was given to under
stand that the matter would be cire

sent for and was shown Mr. Cleveland's
denial. He leaMlimcd the truthfulness
ofhlsrcpoit. Tho situation then became
embnnassing. Next day a staff editor
of the Woild was directed to see Mr.
Cleveland. He did so and icturned
with a btill more elaborate repudiation
of the iuteivicw. This was after tlio
appcaianceln the Sun of the vulgar
aud brutal letaliatory assault of Dana.
"Meantime the question of veiacity
lalsed between Mr. Cleveland and the
lepoiterwas thoioughly investigated.
As a part of this investigation the cdi-tor-In-chaige,
at his own suggestion,
called upon Mr. Cleveland at his resi

and moicspccllicicpudlation of all that
portion of the alleged interview which
had been printed as an addendum to
what he (Mr. Cleveland) had submitted
in manuscript. Mr. Cleveland could
only account for the misrepresentation
saddled upon him upon the theory that
the reporter had uttered many of the
sentiments himself, and finding his ut
terances tacitly accepted bad attrlbutcel
tuem to llio person interviewed ami not
to the intci viewer. This style of Inter
view being not altogether unknown in
somo sections of tho country, the World
accepted Mr. Cleveland's explanation,
and Inasmuch as the policy of the World
Is to do justice nt nil times and unto alt
people the editorial statement was pie
pnicd which appealed on Sunday, April
"This, of course, left tho repoiter in
an embarrassing position, but having
weighed the testimony of the only two
witnesses a veulict was rendered hon

his good chaiactcr and long seivicc the
reporter was permitted on the 21st to
tender his resignation. This was ac
cepted and tho Cleveland Interview was
