Court Without Exception Rules Against
Defendants in Savannah.
Savannah, Ga.. February 8.—Further
testimony relative to dealings of O. M.
Carter and R. F. Westcott, his father
in-law, with Reed & Flagg, brokers of
New York, was offered during the trial
of Greene aud Gaynor in the federal
court today. Franklin Ford, who was
cashier of the brokers’ firm during the
period of these operations, which ex
tended from 1893 to 1891 occupied the
stand the entire session. Objections
were offered by the defense to the in
troduction of much of Mr. Ford's tes
timony, the claim being that certain
records that were not at hand would
constitute better evidence. The court
held, however, that the time for the
defense's objections to have been made
was yesterday, when the witness was
first called to the staud and the line
of questioning that he would undergo
Almost without exception the objec
tions offered by the defense have been
overruled by the court. Careful note
has been made throughput the trial of
exceptions taken by the defense, and
there can he no question that It Is
counsel's purpose, should the verdict
he against them, to appeal.
PRATHER MAKES CORRECTION.
Roosevelt’s Name Did Not Cause Vio
lent Debate in Confederate Meeting.
Atlanta, Ua., February 8.—Col. John
S. Prather, commander of Camp A,
Wheeler’s Confederate cavalry, sub
mits the following, requesting as wide
publicity as possible:
“Whereas, publication has been made
that at a meeting of the camp of which
I am commander, held February 2,
1906, a resolution was offered to elect
President Roosevelt an honorary mem
ber, and that this was met with spir
ited opposition by the members pres
ent, and the motion was almost unani
mously voted down.
“Now, this Is to denounce the publl
cation referred to as a flagrant misrep
resentation of facts. I presided at the
meeting, and when the resolution was
ottered attention was simply called to
the fact that the by-laws of our asso
ciation prohibited any honorary mem
bers, and the resolution was promptly
withdrawn, was not even debated or
voted on, or any opposition voiced

Manager Vaughan lias been informed
that “Shorty” Alexander, the former
Texas wonder, who has played with Mem
phis, Shreveport and Birmingham in the
past, was anxious to come to this city
again, and was willing to make conces
sions if the club would also make a few.
Alexander would very handily fill in that
bad gap between first and third sacks,
and it is very probable that Manager
Vaughan will talk business with him.
Manager Vaughan has received a letter
from an outfielder named Bint who play
ed with Huntsville last season asking for
a chance to show the Birmingham fans
that he knows his business pretty well
for a youngster. He says that so far he
has done nothing with an offer he is said j
to have received from Charley Babb, the ;
Memphis manager, solely because he
thinks Vaughan will give him a try out.
