Case Out, All Night.
The jury in the Wab Lee case remained
out all Friday night. At 11 o’clock yes
terday morning they were called into
court and Judge Adams asked tho fore
man if there was any likelihood that an
ngreement would be reached. The fore
men said that he did not think that a ver
dict would be made. The jurors were
tiieu locked up again and wore kept in
•the room until 2 o'clock, '(’hey were then
again brought mil. The foreman stated
that be had been instructed l>v a majority
of the jurv to say to the court that if it
was not for the stubbornness and preju
dice of one juror a verdict would have
been agreed upon several hours before.
The court concluded that it was not
worto while to keep tho jury looked up
longer ami he ordered one to be with
drawn and a mistrial was declared. The
attorneys for the defendant will endeavor
to get anew trial for Wall Lee as soon aa
possible.
It was rumored that the jury stood
eleven in favor of acquittal to one for con
viction. The perverse juror gave his
grounds for convicting the defendant soon
niter the jurv withdrew, hi and at night he
thought he would lie down on one of the
fienches and sle-qt until ni irning. The
other jurors resolved that, he should not
goto sleep and whistled, sang, talked,

LONG FOUND Gl'ilitY.
<1 titit-** Epcci’s t liarge ti> tho Jury
on till! Forgery <jiin,tiiin.
The jury in the John O. Long case,
which was argued ill the United Sta'es
Circuit Court on Friday, was charged
yesterday morning by Judge Mpeer. Upon
the law in regard to forgery, his honor
charged that one may be guilty of for
gery it he fraudulently signs his name to
a paper, even though bis name is Identi
cal with that of the person who should
have signed.
Had the money order been payable to
John A. Long, and it came bv mlstiike "I
tho mails or otherwise to toe hands of
the prisoner, John A. Long, who, knowing
it was not intended for him, but for an
other John A. Long, indorsed it or signed
the reoeipt font with the fraudulent pur
pose to get the mouev on it, he would he
guilty of forgery.
t he presenting ol the order to the pay
ing official by the defendant, and signing
it its i hough ue was the person for whom
the order was intended, is a circumstance
tending to impeucb the good laith of the
transaction.
The guilty knowledge of the accused
must he shown to the satisfaction of the
jury, the court charged, but it is not
necessary that there should be positive
evidence, provided that it is clearly iu
ieiabie ironi the facts ami circumstances
of the case. If the prosecution relies on
the eonlessioti alone the prisoner is en
titled to tho lull eiTeot of that portion of
the confession which goes in his favor,but
if there is other evidence upon which tue
prosecution can with justice insist upon
a conviction the jury may, if they think
proper, convict, notwithstanding the con
fession alone would not be sufficient.
The charge was lengthy and explicit.
After remaining out a short while the
jury returned averdiot ot guilty of fraud
ulently collecting money on a post office
money order. Tue deteiulant was recom
mended to the mercy of the court. Sen
tence w as deferred.
l i r OPEN A mail BAG.
Young Armstrong Likely to Got
Another Term of Imprisonment.
Email Armstrong, a colored boy who
was oonvlolod a levy weeks ago ot steal
ing a registered letter, was tried yester
day in the United States District Court
tor mutiiatiiig a mail bag. Armstrong is
already under sentence of one year to the
Albany county prison, New York. The
mutilation Is alleged to have occurred
just previous to the abstraction of the
letter.
The defendant, who carried the mail on
his hack through the southeastern section
of the State, claims that he 101 l down and
the bag caught on the root ot a tree aud
was torn when he got up.
All of the evidence was heard yester
day and the ease will be argued to-mor
row.
Another IHhII Hag C.imo.
George Butler, a mail carrier between
Satilla and Cohen's Bluff,was put on trial
In the United States District Court yes
terday. He was charged with having
mutilated a mail hag by cutting it. But
ler made a statement saying that ho had
been attacked and that the bag was cm
by his assailant. Nothing was missed
onto! the bag, and as there was uo evi
dence showing that the defendant did
mutilate the pouch Judge Speer instruct
ed the jury to acquit, which was done.

FEBRUARY AT SB l.
What tlif l'liut Chart Show, —Pre-
dictions for fite Mouth.
The February Pilot. Chart of tho North
Atlantic ocean contains a great deal of
Interesting information covering the
month ol January. It continues to show
the value of and use of oil in lessening
the tiangeis oi heavy ae ts. Tue month of
lanuary was an unusually stormy month,
and stormy weather prevailed in the
transatlantic rome on the coast of tho
I'niied States north of tho 30th par
allel during the early part of the month.
Gales were experienced as far
south as tae 30th parallel. During the
first live days of tho month heavy north
era were encountered in the Gulf of Mex
ico. A heavy fine Ice is reported about 60
nnies north of hi. John’s, N. F., and it is
thought that tho Ice has now got as far
south aa New Fou >dland. The old dere
lict schooner Ida Francis is reported as
having drifted ashore on Fish Cay. She
bad been a long time drifting about the
ocean.
There is an interesting report from
( apt. Wnkcrnan, ot the British hark
lianktields. ol i wo earthquake shocks lelt
at sea on Nov. Itt in latitude 0:50 north,
longitude >:A j west. Thu captain says
that bis ship trembled greatly and a
rumbling nmso was nearrt as though tin*
ship was dragging over shingle. The
shocks lasted from sixteen to twenty
seconds. Tho '-kv was clear, with a slight
hnze mi the horizon. The weather was
oleur and sultry and there was a high and
confused sea. The British hark St. Pat
rick also reports that on Nov. 12 latitude
41 :'H> north, longitude 4:20 east, an im
mense water spout was sighted tu the
sou li west, distant about one mile, it
appeared to ho about 120 'eet through and
at the base, ami me water was one mass
ot loam-ike* clouds of smoke. The cap
tain could not guess the height, but the
top was high up in the clouds
aud the centre was continually
In motion, the wind being from northeast,
variable and squally, raiu falling in tor
rents, with hailstones as large as wal
nuts.
The chart says that in the weather for
February theetortn area extends over the
en'ire North Atlantic, its southern limit
being a line Ironi ('ape Finistere to the
A/ires and Bermuda. XV ithin this area
gales may be expected on the average of
once in eight dare. In the transatlantic
route the great*r number of gales will
blow from southwest to northwest. North
ers may be expected in the western
part of the Gulf of Mexico. Icebergs
and field Ice mav be encountered south
and east of the banks of Newfoundland
as far as latitude 42 north and longitude
42 west. It is a remarkable fact, as tin
pilot chart shows, that the coast from
Florida to New York is thickly studded
with floating wrecks, and no effort is be
ing made to destroy them. It is true
that, tew if any accidents have been re
ported by vessels coming in contact with
them, but there may be yet, and the
wrecks may cause great loss ol life as
well as ol property.
AT THE THEATRE.
Janisb’s Successful Engagement—
The Coro Due Week's Attractions.
Mine. Jauisli's popularity was shown
yesterday, when, notwithstanding tho
disagreeable weather and sloppy streels,
the Theatre was almost filled at the mati
nee. “Violets,” in which she appeared,
t,* a well written and interesting story.
She is essentially an emotional actress,
and the play is a splendid test for her re
markable powers, tuough hardly afford
ing her such a scope as the "Princess
Andrea.” Her “Violets” quickly won
the sympathy of the audience, and each
climax was enthusiastically applauded.
Al the end of the fourth act a btineu of
violets was thrown over the footlights.
Alter tho performance a number ot
ladies waited in the rain at the stage
entrance to see her come out.
At night “Violets” was repeated be
fore a small audience, which was due to
the rain.
A Ch it With ,Lint ah.
Between the act* yesterday aiternoon
Mme. Janish chatted eutertainingly
about her profession and current topics.
Newspaper men always expect stars to
rave over the particular city they are in,
and aclresses do it so persistently that
the chestnut belt has to be resorted to
frequently. Remarkable as the state
ment may seem, Mme. Janish did not
one? allude to her impressions of Savan
nah or the South, further toan a mention
of,a lingering memory of a pleasant tout
through Florida.
She expects to come through the South
next season, but when asked what play
she would appear in, laughingly re
marked that sun could not tell, as the
time is too lar off'.
A card attached to a floral tribute,
which she received at the eod of one of
the acts from a lady admirer, contained

the omission of a word rather destroyed
the sense and puzzled the Couutess for a
few minutes.

To-morrow night Lillie Clay’s Adam
less Eden Company will give a perform
ance at the Theatre. The Minneapolis
Gazette said of the show:
“The shapely and rigidlv symmetrical
forms ot the deniz iis ot E len, as exem
plified in the exhibition of last evening,
was of the recognized Adatniess stand
ard, and could not have been more faith
ful to an ideal paradise made up of the

An Atlanta special to the Mousing
Nkws yesterday stated that 51 aj. Henry
Fink lias been tendered tho position of
ohiof executive officer of ilia entire Rich
mond and Danville system.
A report has been circulated for some
time to tho effect that Maj. Fink was
about to leave the East Tennessee, Vir
ginia and Georgia, and that Capt. Raoul,
the Central’s ex-l'resideut, would succeed
him. Only a few days ago Maj. Finn
was elected a director of the Ricnmond
Terminal Company, which has absorbed
the Richmond and Danville and the East
Tenn.'ssee, Virginia and Georgia. Tout
would eeem to add strengtn to tji" report
that he is to he put al the head oi the

report. Gen. Alexander stated that he
had not heard of it. but
tuouglit that there might he
sametuing in it. A chief executive
officer would probablv be something
higher even than a general manager. As
the systems wnicu have recently been
consolidated were rivals before, it is
likely that someone who is thoroughly
familiar with the differeut linos would lie
put In charge of tae management of the
combination.
t apt, Raoul returned last night from a
fortnight's visit to Cuba. He looks as il
the rest did him good. When asked if lie
knew any thing about the rep >rt concern
ing .Maj. '-'ink or himselt he replied that
lie did uoi. He has been off on a pleasure
trip, and has not kspt up with the rail
road news. He had not, up to last night,
received an offer from the East Tennessee.
Railroad and business men generally
who have been talked to in reference to
the interstate commerce bill favor Capt.
Raoul for acommisstonersbip. All agree
that he ts thoroughly qualified to fill the
position aud would make an excellent
commissioner. His friends, however,
have not consulted him yet and do not
know whether ne would accept or not.
BASE BALL NEWS.
Manager Morton Talks \l>ut the
Winning Longue Club.
Manager Morton, who is now in Chi
cago, stopped iu Detroit on his way West
a day or two ago. At the base ball head
quarters there he was interviewed by the
Detroi- News man. After speaking of
his Savannah eu gage mint Morton was
asked what club he thought would win iu
the National League race.
“1 tbiuU Detroit is a sure winner. The
men have become acquainted with each
other anti will play a .great deal stronger
game than last season. Chicago, on the
other hand, has a lot ot now players, wao
have not been tried, and at best they are
unacquainted with each other. Tfi • De
troit* did bot.er last year than was ex
pected, don” you think so, deacon?”
turning to Deacon Jim White who, with
Dan O’Leary, were in the parly.
“Well,” mplied the deacon, “if our
pitchers held out we expected to ‘get
tHere,’ hut they didn't, aud that let Chi
cago go to the irout. II Twitched had not
been worked too hard iu the beginning of
the Southern trip the result would have
been different. This year we will look
outforthat. Twitched is one of the best
pitchers in the country.”
“A regular daudy,” remarked O’Leary.
“He’d be a comer this season.”
“I don’t like the now rules lor several
reasons,” said Mr. -Morton.
"Nor I either,” said tne good deacon,
who continued: “The old pitchers have
the best o: the batsman by large odds.
Their talk about breaking down is ad
uonseuse. After they find that it doesn’t
hurt them, they will settle down; and,
seeing that they have nearly the whole
length of a man to fire at, you bet they
will get used to the new order ol things
quicker than a batter, unless he is a free
hitter.”
It is now stated for a certainty that the
Kausas City Base Bad Club has purchased
me franchise of tue Bt. Louis, tue latter
organization ceastug to baa member ol
the league.
i’resident Morrow has appointed New
Orleans, 51emphis, Charleston, Savannah
and Nashville on the schedule commit
tee, which will meet in New Orleans
during the 51 aid i Gras festival.
The Charleston base bad club stock, of
a par value of $25 a share, is now for sale
on the market, 820 bid and $25 asked.
This is a marked increase, for a few
weeks ago $5 was bid auu $lO was asked.
Louisville is considered the cheapest
club in the American Association, yet it
is generally acknowledged a- one of the
strongest. The simple fact of President
Phelps, ot the Louisville club, threatening
to suspend, or ratner blacklist, ad his
players, who tlo not sign with him on or
before slarcb 25, may he the secret of the
team being theobeapest in the associa

Never Often Your Mouth
excep'. to put something to eat into it, is
au excellent motto for the gossip and the
sufferer from catarrh. But while the gos
sip is practically incurable, there is no
excuse lor any one’s suffering longer from
catarrh. Dr. Sage’s Catarrh Remedy is
an unfailing cure for that offensive dis
ease. It heals the diseased membrane,
and removes the dull and depressed sen
sations which always attend catarrh. A
short trial ol this valuable preparation
will make the sufferer feel like anew
being.
