Savannah. March 1. Another day and
night of intense excitement in Savannah.
Feeling ran high, though there was no
hostilities of any kind. In the afternoon
Mrs. Slnttery lectured to 630 women in
OJd Fellows' halL Many of the Indies at
the lecture were escorted to the hall by
Iieir husbands. Policemen were stationed
n the square on which the hall fronts.
No one was allowel to loiter about the
building Towards the close of the lecture
jwds collected in the vicinity, and Slat-
cry and h's n ifo were followed to their
hotel bv thousand. At ni;:'-it Odd Fcl-
owa' Hall was crowded to its limit and
many were turned away. Fully l.OJO men
were in the hall, aud it is understood that
a large proportion were armed.
t ere Ready for a Mob
On all sides men were heard saying that
they were ready for a mob. Outside the
hall the entire police force, with the ex-
cption of a few men scattered through
the audience, were distributed so as to
c iinmand tho entire vicinity of the hall.
No crowds wero allowed to congregate
near tho timMing. I:isi le tho nail Slnt
tery received an ovation and throughout
his lecture ho was applau led and cheered
when he declared that tho riot Tuesday
night had shown tho necessity of Prot
estant organization. Tho wild cheering
ted several minutes and was vigorous
ly resumed whn he said:
ICeromniends the 1 rotectives.
'Get tho A. P. A., or the Junior Order
of American Mechanics hero, and you
will have no more such demonstrations
against free sp-seeh. We must meet the
Ancient Order of Hibernians with tho
American Protective association, and
show them that it is not necessary to
get their permission to have a lecture in
Savannah. Slattery then declared that ho
was not here in the interest of the A. 1
A. but that after tho riot ho had wired
thu national president, and nn organizer
Would be hero in twenty-four hours. This
was received with cln-crs.
No Demonstration Except Hisses
At the close of the lecture there wero
cheers given for Slattery, and many went
forward and signed a paper promising to
unite with cither of the orders he had
mentioned. Slatterv was escorted back
to the hotel by a large body of police.
Several hundred of those who had heard
him followed to assist in protecting him.
While there wero- many people ou the
streets there w;is no demonstration made
against the ex-priest except hisses.
Women Bark I p tho Ex-Priest.
Slattery's securing of Odd Fellows hall
for his lectures was due to interest taken
in the matter by women. A committee
of ladies declined they would get a hall
for Mrs. Slattery to lecture in if they had
to pay for it themselves. One committee
succeeded in getting Oild Fellows' hall.
The determination of citizons to suppress
the riotous clement themselves seems to
have had a salutary c 1Ti;ct.
A Situation To lie Deplored.
Slattery announced last night that ho
intended to remain in Savannah until he
could walk the streets without police pro
tection. His presence here will keep up
excitement, winch has been intensified by
the announcement that tho A P. A,
would lie organized here at once. Con
servative men on both sides deeply deplore
the existing situation.

tion among Michigan Democrats and the

as reported and adopted is as follows:
"The Democratic party of Michigan
