ROMANCE OF THU CRUSADES.
I Rev. Charles ll,' Straus* Delivers
i tho (.'losing hflciiire of the Course.
“The Final Crusades of St. Louis to
Egypt and Tunis” was the subject of
Key. Charles H. Strong’s lecture at St.
John's Parish Hall last night. It was the
last lecture of the course on tho Romance
ot the Crusades. Tte hall was well
tilled. After reviewing briefly tbe
events ot the preceding lectures of tne
i course the reverend gentleman addressed
! himself to his subject.
in 1-13, he said, the world beheld an
event such as had never before occurred.
Fifty thousand children in France and
Germany, boys and girls, from 10 to 20
years of age, gathered together under the
leadership of two of their number, and
marched through tbe principal cities
singing “Lord Jesus, restore to us your
holy cross,” taelr avowid purpose being
the deliverance of the sepulchre. Many
bad women and two renegade monks
took part in this crusade for the purpose
ot soiling these poor children to the
Moors ol Afrioa. A number survived to
undergo tnis degradation.
“Great preparations were made for the
sixth crusade. Andrew, of Hungary,
took the cross, but returned soon alter
his arrival in Jerusalem leaving tne
Duke ot Austria with his German forces.
Being largely reinforced it was deter
mined to attack Damietta, the key to
Egypt, which surrendered after a furious
resistance. The invasion of Egypt tilled
the Moslems with consternation. An
otter was made to tbe Christiauato giveail
Palestine and Jerusalem for the evacua
tion ot Egypt by tho crusaders. The offer
was relused. and through the bad gener
alship of their leader the Christians were
driven out of the country.
“the excommunicated German Em
peror, Frederick, next, attempted the
rescue of Jerusalem. Witn a small force
he took tbe field, occupied Joppa and ap
proached ttie Holy City. At this juoeture
a treaty was made by the Sultan of Cairo
j with Frederick which gave tree access to
Jerusalem to pilgrims and a peace of teu
years. Upon Frederick’s return Richard,
Earl of Cornwall, with many knights,
landed io Palestine. So great was tbe
terror inspired by this Prince that the
Sultan gave him, without battle, an ab
solute cession of Jerusalem and released
to him all the captives then in Moslem
“Four years after this treaty tne Bashi-
Bazouks spread over Europe and Asia,
robbing all who opposed their progress.
Among those who were driven from their
territories were the Causman, who de
termined to avenge upon others their
own evils. In 1246 witn 20,000 cavalry
they entered Palestine. Jerusalem hav
ing been abandoned its remaining inhab
itants were slaughtered. Tho knights,
aided by tue Moslems, gave them battle
at Gaza, where the Christians were de
feated, less than sixty escaping. These
outrages determined Louis of France to
attempt a seventh crusade. Great prepa
rations wore made in ali Europe.
“in 1454 Louis, at tbe head of the army,
arrived at Damietta, winch lei 1 into their
hands wjtbout resistance. Leaving his
Queen in that city, Louis marched for
Cairo. Ho was detained at the Thama
sian canal, but at last crossed over. A
terrible battle was also fought, and owing
to his bolduess In attempting the rescue
of an army of knights who had been cut
off by the Turks, Louis allowed the Mame
lukes to get between him and Damietta.
The crusadors suffered terribly, and on
attemptisg to retreat under cover of the
night were captured after a large number
ot knights had fallen. He ransomed
himself by tho release of Damietta,
and. obtained the freedom of tne re
mains ot his army by the payment of
400,000 gold livres. Not satisfied with
his deeds Louts attempted to capture
Tunis in the eighth crusade. This cru
sade was productive of even less good
and more suffering than the preceding
one to Egypt, Among the l'amitie and
pestilence of the camp Louis at length
tell sick and died before Tunis. At his
death he was canonized.
“Edward Longshanks, afterward Ed
ward I. of Englaud, was tne last to at
tempt the deliverance of the sepulchre.
This knight took Acre, captured Nazareth
and defeated a large body of Moslems.
After a residence of fourteen months in
the Holy Land he concluded a peace of
ten years. Soon afterward Acre was be
sieged aud taken by tho Moslems. This
was the last organized effort to preserve
Jerusalem to European control.”
The lecture was illustrated with nearly
100 views in the oxy-bydrogen light, and
waa one of the most interesting of the
course. At its conclusion tbe reverend
lecturer thanked his audience for the at
tention it had given him and lor tbe in
terest it had taken in the lectures.

SAVANNAH MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY. MARCH 11.1887.
CYRIL SEARCH DEAD.
Tho Curtaiu Fails oa the Last Act
of His Life.
Cyril Searle, a well-known actor and
| theatrical manager, died a few minutes
after 12 o’clock yesterday at the Savan
nah Hospital. Two or three years ago he
was attacked by consumption, and for
the past six months his friends have had
little hope of his recovery, la October of
last, year he came to Savannah with the
Lillian Lewis Company, of which he was
the business manager. Tnc company
broke in Savannah, and Mr. Searle was
persuaded to stay here. He was then
failing rapidly, but it was thought that
his life might he prolonged in this oil
mate, evon thouga a cure could not be
For a time he appeared to improve, but
before the holidays he left for a distant
part of the State. Shortly alterward he
catne back to Savannah much worse than
when he left. For six weeks ne has been
confined to tbo hospital. Although Me
knew that his end was fust approaching,
he always showed a cbeerlul disposition,
and be met death calmly and learlessly,
though without Buy bravado. A few
hours before bis dissolution be
faintly remarked, but with a
spiile, to a friend at his bedside:
‘‘The last act of my life’s drama is almost
played.” None knew better than he that
tbe end was near, and that tne curtain
would soon drop forever on his mortal
existence. At!) o’clock yesterday morn
ing he became unconscious, aud re
mained so, passing away very gently.
His real name was Cyril Seale, Searle
being his stage name, and he came
of a family of much prominence in
Alabama. He was born in Seale in
that State absut forty years ago.
When he was a boy he was sent
to England to be educated, and
remained there until he was nearly
of age, receiving a military education.
He became a man of tine attainments,
but was of a roving disposition, and in
dis life, though a comparatively snort one,
he saw much of the world. He traveled
all over the European coutinent, went to
Australia and saw active duty in Her
Majesty’s service. He had an extensive
acquaintance among the prominent
people of England, and was an intimate
personal friend of Charles Reade, the
Entering the dramatic profession, he
quickly rose to a leading position. His
greatest character was probably
"Cottpeau” in “Drink,” the manuscript of
which was willed to him by Beade, who
bad adapted it from the French. He mar
ried in England, and soon after
wards came to this country and
accepted a position on the New
York Herald. Leaving journalism he
again began aotlng, and traveled all
over the United States playing leading
parts in standard plays. When Mary
Anderson made her first successful tour
through the South, which was the com
mencement of her succession of suc
cesses, Mr. Searle was her leading sup
port, playing Ingomar and Borneo and
such roles in her repertoire.
Obtaining a divorce from his first wife
be married Bose Eytlnge, tneu in the
zenith of her enreer. For several seasons
he managed her in starring tours, gener
ally playing leading man. He was a
bf tter actor than business manager, and
although he made a great deal of money
it was lost in unsuccessful ventures.
He was a member of the Masonic fra
ternity, of the Benevolent Order of Elks,
of the Typographical Union and ot the
Actors’ Fund. The Elks, the Actors’
Fund and the Ford Dramatic Association,
of this city, have been caring for him
since he has been in Savannah. He will
be buried this alternoon by the Masons in
Laurel Grove Cemetery. The funeral
services will be held at St. John’s Church
at 3 p. m. The President ot the Savannah
Typographical Union requests that as
many members of the organization as can
will attend tbe funeral.
WHAT MIND READING IS.
Prof. .1. Ranilall Brown to Give an
Exhibition in Savannah.
A religious illustrated lecture on mind
reading aud spiritualistic phenomena is
announced by Prof. J. Randal! Brown for
Sunday night. It will be held at the
Theatre, where he gave a similar exhibi
tion ten years ago. The Professor called
at the editorial rooms of the Morning
News yesterdav and gave an interesting
sketch of tbe discovery and development
of mind reading. He says that he is the
original discoverer of the wonderful tac
“There • a great misunderstanding,”
he remarked, “as to what mind reading
is. Many have an idea that it is akin to
dramatic readings, or something of that
kind. Of courso, as everybody ought to
know. It is the faculty of telling what
others are thinking about. It is shown
by finding articles which have been hid
den, telling the name someone is think
ing of, reading the date on a coin witnout
seeing it. and doing similar thifigs.”
Prof. Brown set easily exclteable At
lanta all astir with his Derformances,the
first of which lie gave ar, the theatre on
Sunday night about two weeks ago. He
says that there is nothing in his perform
ances to which any clergyman can ob
ject. as they are simply scientific investi
gations. He was offered all sorts of in
ducements to give a private seance to the
News staff. If he read the minds of its
members ho found that he had dropped
upon a net of skeptics. H>* saul that be

in condition to get thoroughly en rapport
with a subject.
A News reporter, who had been pre
viously authorized by a gentleman to
make the proposition, stated that he
would give the Professor a handsome
gold watch if he would tell the number
on the Inside of the case. Tho Professor
agreed to tue test, and said that he will

.NOT IX THE BIG DEAL.
GEN. ALEXANDER DEN IK-** THAT
THE CKNIRAL IS SCOOPED.
H* Ray* that, the Road is Owned by the
Bnine Parti** that Elected Him Pr**d
dent—The Stock Market Not Affected by
the Rumored Deal—What Is Said About
tho Baltimore sail Ohio Purchase.
Gen. E. P. Alexander was asked yes
terday about the reported scoop of all the
Southern railway systems by the Rich
mond and West Point Terminal people.
The Genera! stated that he had heard it
said that the Baltimore and Ohio had
given the Terminal people tne refusal of a
majority of their stock. He thought per
haps that the option was still open, a otr
oumstance which may explain President
As to the Georgia Central being in
cluded in tne scoop, tbe President de
clared that the Richmond aDd West Point
Terminal does not own it, and that it is
held by the same parties who elected
At the intimation that possibly tbe rail
roads are acting upon his suggestion in
his treatise on 'Railway Reform, and are
combining for protection before the inter
state commerce bill goes into effect, Gen.
Alexander smiled and remarked that
perhaps some of them are.
The reported deal has had no visible
effect upon Central stock. Tne market is
quiet and has been for several days. The
stock was quoted yesterday at bid
and 126 asked. There were no transac
tions. There was a good deal of talk
yesterday in regard to the deal
and the effect it will have
upon Savannah if tbe Central
is included along with the other roads in
the great scood. Tbere have been so many
reports circulated that nobody claims to
have much of an idea as to what the inside
ot the deal is.
The following is what the New York
Tribune obtained from Gen. Samuel F.
Thomas respecting the purchase of the
Baltimore and Ohio by tne Sully,
Brice aud Thomas syndicate: “1 am not
in a position to talk about this transac
tion, for it has not yet beeu consummated.
It is idle to expect me to say anything
definite, for my relations with my asso
ciates forbid my speaking with the free
dom that I would exeroise were the mat
ter settled. But I think I am at liberty
to say that important negotiations are
(lending which involve a change in the
position of the Baltimore aud Ohio rail
road stock, whioh heretofore has
been held as a family interest,
and tbe new ownership which is
proposed would bring luto the property
important New York as well as other
capitalists. And the negotiations not
only look to such a distribution of con
trol, but will involve tbe Reading, Jersey
central and Pennsylvania railroads
the telegraph interests in relations which
will tend to assure harmony and co
operation where before tbere were dis
putes and disagreement. The project i
a large one, and if carried oul will result
in arrangements which 1 believe will be
conducive to the benefit of general securi
ties. I see no reason why,when an under
standing has beeu reached, there should
not be given to it the widest publicity, for
it is in line with a policy that will be ad
vantageous to the public as well as to the
interests specially affected. The negotia
tions nave made favorable progress and
have reached a stage where I think there
is reason to expect that the wildest hopes
of those who are aiming at reconciliation
will be realized.”
“Then you are willing to say that no
snags or obstructions have been encoun
tered which look insurmountable?”
“None whatever,” replied Gen. Thomas.
, “1 believe it is only a question of a short
time when by some agreement and in
some way a harmonizing of these impor
tant interests will be secured. The idea
is not anew one; it was taken up by well
known capitalists more than a year ago
and has been in mind more or less ever
since. Tbe tendenoy in railroad prop
erties for some time has been toward the
substitution of an imnersonal for a per
sonal management as most contributive
to tbe best interests of the public and the
owners of railroad properties. This
principle was first recognized m the Van
derbilt system, and the Baltimore and
Ohio is ready the last company which
has kept its ownership inclose bands.”

Charleston Wants a Change ,n the
Counting of Cotton.
Charleston is vary much exercised
over the way Savannah calculates its
cotton receipts aDcl is offering sugges

regard to how the counting should be
A few days ago the News and Courier
printed a statement that Savannah
counted 27,000 bales, or thereabouts, that
did not belong to this port. Supt. Bryan
stated in reply that Savannah is acting
under a rule of the National Exchange.
The Stiperinteudant of the New
Orleans Exchange has written to
Supt. Tavel of the Charles

made here, and says: “If the cotton has
been shipped to or via Savannah by the

railroad or other conveyance, and there
transferred to the Charleston and Savan
nah railway, Savannah, under the system
of counting pursued at all out ports, has
rightly counted it, and it should be
counted by you as gross and not not. If,
however, the cottou has not touched Sa
vannah, they are in error and your oount
is correct. The same trouble would arise
with us were we to oount as net all cotton
consigned to our merchants form interior
points via the Louisville and Nashville
railroad, such ootton nearly all passing
through Mobile in sealed cars, yet is
counted by Mobile as net receipts and
included by us only as gross.”
This apparently has not satisfied
Charleston, and Supt. Tavel has written
to the New Orleans Exchange as follows:
Charleston, 8. C., March 8, 1887.
R. 11. Lei , Aeeiet.mt Secratary Cotton Ex
change, Now Or! tarn, La. :
Dear Sir—Yours of March 5 came duly to
hand and contents noted. We regret that wo
cannot see our way to oounting our receipts
as you suggest. Wo count here the receipts
of our pert. Cotton shipped to Charleston
from Atlanta via Augusta or via Jcsup and
Savannah, we equally count as shipped to
this port. Cotton that oomes here from Flor
ida on the New York, Charleston and Florida
steamers, and that lies in our docks for a day
or two, we do not count in either our gross or
net. Cotton that pusses Charleston Junction,
whether on its way to Savannah or Wilming
ton or Norfolk, if such there be, we do not
and would not count.
Wo suggest that it would be just as easy for
Savannah, instead of filling its account with
innumerable cross entries, and thus swelling,
incorrectly, its receipts, to count simply its
own cotton and leave us to count simply ours.
Thus errors may more readily be avoided.
In counting receipts at interior towns, docs
Vicksburg add and deduct every boat-load of
Memphis cotton that passes down the river?
Does Augusta receive and export every
carload of Athena, or Atlanta
or Macon cotton that passes
through her city? Such a system
would entail endless confusion and result in
swelling incalculably the receipts of any
town that might be a way-station on a line of
railway. Would it not be better, then, for
Mobile and Savannah to stop counting cotton
that does not belong to them, rather than
that New Orleans and Charleston should
deduct what does belong to them? As re
gards this cotton, Savannah is not an out
ward port, but simply a way-station on a
through railway line.
