A Dwelling House Burned and Three ;
Tenements Damaged.
The firemen had a lively day of it yes ter- '
day. Between l and 2 o'clock in the morn- j
ing fire bir>ke out in a small one-story frame '
tenement on the south side of Goodwin’s lane,
east of the Anderson street crossing of the
Savannah, Florida and Western Railway.
The light was seen by the firemen on duty :
at No. 4 engine house. By the time they ;
reached the Anderson street crossing the i
building was about consumed. It was out
of reach of water and no assistance could tie
rendered by the department. The house i
was owned and occupied by “Captain”
Coffee (colored), and was totally destroyed.
The loss is about $4OO. There was no inj
surance. The fire is supposed to have been
of incendiary origin.
At 8:80 o'clock a local alarm was sent to
No. 1 engine bouse and was telephoned to
headquarters. Fire was discovered in the
second story of a frame dwelling on the
west side of Reynolds streets, north of
President. The fire was caused by dump
ing hot ashes in a box. The flames were
extinguished before gaining much headway
and the loss was light. The house is owned
by Mrs. Ellen Monahan ami was occupied
by Fred Dixon.
A few minutes after 12 o'clock an alarm
was turned in from box No. 33, at Wayne
and West Broad streets. The box was out
of order, and the irregular striking of the
gongs confused the firemen, so that it was
sometime before the fire was located. En
fine Company No. 4 was the first to arrive.
he fire was in a frame house on the north
side of Berrien street, west of Jefferson.
Sparks from a burning chimney set tire to a
bundle of rags stuffed into a stove-pipe hole
near the roof, and the flames communicated
to the ceiling and then to the shingles. The
damage is slight anil is fully covered by in
surance. The house is owned by W. Con
ners and is occupied by J. Wilkins (colored).
Between 5 and (> o’clock last night the roof
of a frame house on Farm street, between
Pine and Orange, caught fire from (lying
sparks and burned through. The flames
were extinguished before gaining headway
and the damage is slight.
Fire Department Notes.
The new engine being built at the Fa
France works, Elmira, N. Y., to take the
place of engine No. 1, is expected to lie
ready for service by July 1.

Savannah Lose 6 One of Its Most Prom
ising Young Business Men.
Mr. Walter McNeill, one of tbe members
-of the firm of Peacock. Hunt & Cos., died at
1 ;S0 o'clock yesterday afternoon of typhoid
fever. He had been sick but little more
than a week, and his friends were greatly
shocked at his death, a- thev did not con
sider him dangerously ill. He was born in
Robeson county, N.~ C., in 1849. When
quite a young man he went to South Caro
lina, where he conducted a large milling and
turpentine business for ton or twelve years.
In 1832 he removed to Worth county, Ga,,
and engaged in the manufacture ot' naval
With his brother, Mr. Lawrence .McNeill,
he invested largely in land. His business
was very successful, and in 1883 he came to
Savannah and started a commission house,
under the firm name of W. A L. McNeill.
A year later he was admitted into the firm
of Peacock, Hunt & Cos., the largest nasal
stores factors In the city. He remained an
active member of that firm until his death.
He was the firm’s salesman, and assumed a
large share of the mqionsibiiity of the busi
Although comparatively a young man,
being in his 38th year, he had by careful
business management acquired a comfort
able fortune. He was Vice President of the
Board of Trade, and was highly esteemed by
all who knew him. No man was of more
strict integrity. Physically lie was quite a
large man, and his nature was genial and
kind. He had many warm friends in this
city, although he had resided here but a
few years.
About two weeks ago be made a trip to
North Carolina, and was laden sick very
shortly after his return. On Thuraday hie
was removed from the hotel at which he
was stopping to Mr. T. H. McMillan's resi
dence. on New Houston street. His friends
thought that he was improving until shortly
before his death, when no was seised with a
convulsion and died in a few moments.
Mr. McNeill was a member of the First
Presbyterian church aud unmarried.
Mr. J, \Y. Hunt will leavo for North
Carolina with the remains this morning.
The deceased's aged father and mother
are still living.
The Mate and Pour Seamen Taken

where they spent Friday and the night fol

The Exhibition to Open at the Guards*
Armory on Wednesday.
The Savannah Floral and Art Associa
tion’s spring exhibition will open Wedne -
day afternoon at the Chatham Artillery’s
armory. Friday’s wind storm injured the
outdoor plants no little, and the floral ex
hibit will consequently uot be quite so good
as was hoped for. The art and fancy work
display, however, promises to be exoeptionl
ally good and will make up iua large degree
for any shortcoming in the other depart
Had it not been for the cold snaps in
March, and in the early part of April, the
show would have been held a fortnight ear
lier, when there was an abundance of roses
and any floral display with plenty of good
roses will be a success. A good display of
potted prints is promised.
There seems to be a great deal of interest
taken in the coming show. Some of the
officers of the association attendod
the exhibition in Charleston last week.
One of the gentlemen said yesterday
that the hall in which the Charleston society
held its show was so thronged with visitors
that it was a hard matter to get around,
and the hall was a large one too. “There is
no reason why Savannah should not
have just ns good a display and
attract just as many visitors,” ho added.
“The .railroads give special excursion rates
and people go long distances to attend
Charleston’s show. I have uo doubt
it in worth $5,000 or more
to the city every year. Strangers stay a
day or two at the hotels and spend money
liberally shopping. Savannah’s society
ought to lie equally as successful when it
gets a little older. All we want is to get the
lovers of flowers thoroughly interested.
Wo must try to give shows that visitors
will willingly pay the price of admission to
see. There are enough gardens and green
houses in the city to always insure a
display that would (111 the largest
haft "we could get. The growers,
amature and professional alike, should try
to make the exhibitions a success, not only
from an aesthetic point of view, but also be
cause they can be made a . ucuniary benefit
to the city."

in which the flowers will be displayed, 411

light copi i-ny will illuminate the exhibi
tion grounds and hall with the Westinghouse
incandescent light, which the compauy is

One Chance in a Lifetime.
The latest tiling out in insurance invest
ments is tlie 10-20 insurance investment
bonds of that staunch old company, the
Manhattan Life. These bonds, which are
payable in ten years, insure a man for
twenty, at the end of which time he re
ceives tne full amount of the bond, with ac
cumulated profits aggregating 5 1-2 per
cent, on the money invested. The company
guarantee that tne bonds shall uot be sub
ject to forfeiture after three payments have
been made. They coutaiu neither suicide
nor intemperance clauses, and after three
years' payments the bonds are absolutely
incontestible. In short, they are as free
from technicalities as it is possible to make
them. The Manhattan Life aims to furnish
the very cheapest and most profitable form
of insurance compatible w ith safety. An
interesting example, printed in another
column, of a bond issued at the age of 25,
shows that the holder would mule a net
profit of #4,041 on the in vestment of $7,532,
besides getting his life insured for the
whole twenty years. Tliis looks good
enough for a reckless company to offer,
whereas as a matter of fact the Manhattan
Life is one of .the solidcst institutions
in the city, and books up its bonds with as
sets aggregating over $11,000,000. The
company is too well known in Savannah to
make comment necessary. During its quar
ter of a century of business in this city it
lias issued hundreds of jxilicies, which re
main in force, thereby testifying the satis
faction of the insurers. Mr. Henry Hoifen
steiii, their agent, will be pleased to explain
anything concerning the different plans
written ny the company.

Mr. R. W. Powers, chief clerk of the
Charleston Hotel, spent yesterday in Savan

Ben George and Mr. Frank Masher, clerks

New Orleans, Mobile and Nashville
the Winners of Yesterday’s Games—
Changes in the Home Nine—Pike,
McAdams and McArthur Released
and Murray Re-signed.
The home ciub received its fourth defeat
at Mobile yesterday, and is now the tßil ei.d
of the league. The ' -suits of the day’s
games were:
[savannah 8, Mobile 13.
New Orleans 10, Charleston L
Nashville 12, Memphis 5.
The mako-up of the home team will l.e
considerably changed before the New Or
leans series is played this week. McAdams
and Pike have been released, and McArthur
will be sent adrift in a day or two. Tommy
Murray has been signed to play thiid
base, and loft last night to
join the club in New Orleans. Manager
Morton was anxious that Nichols should
join the dub on its return here, but the
borne management eo.isirier it unwise to go
much further with the present team unless
it plays better ball than it has been playing
for the past week, and
Nichols will probably pitch in
to-morrow or Tuesday's game if he reaches
New Orleans in time. The club w ill play
there to-morrow and Tuesday, Wednesday
and Thursday, returning home in time to
open the season here on May 7 with Charles
game at Mobile was lost sim
ply because the Gulf City team played ball
and Savannah did not. The result was not
at all sun vising to those of the club's
track el's, who have been losing money ever
since the season opened and who are about
as anxious as anybody for a change.
The directors say that if the present team
cannot win they will put one in the field
that can, and that is what the Savannah
base ball public wants to see done.

RuhwriptioM IvmH *o the stock of the
Birmingham Base Ball Association have
been opened in the Magic City.
The New Orleans Picaj/nn? says that
Southern League players are as superstitious
as any other Dalltoseers. During a game at
Mobile a day or two ago the Mobiliaus cor
ralled a goat in right field and held or. to
him as a maacotte. They bod three runs and
looked like .sure winner*. Welriand Vaughn
wore on the '3 ■:vers’ bench and auxiouslv
looked around for a maacotte to counterbal
ance Cue moons capture, filially a yonow
dog came near the bench, and the two catch
ers lured him into captivity. Tiiov held on
to the dog until the New Orleans nine pot
into the lead, and then gave him his liberty.
Vessels Arrived in Savannah During
the Month of April.
The News gives to-day the number of
vessels arriving at this port for the month
of April, with their rigs, nationality and
tonnage. The number doer, not include the
arrivals at Tybee, but only the vessels which
have actually arrived at the wharves, and
have discharged and loaded, or are loading:
ships. Harks. Schooners. Total.
American 26 2l 47
Norwegian 9 ..
German 2 .. 2
British 2 .. 3
Italian 1 ~

Total 46,108 17,186 A3,294
A comparison with the month of March
shows quite a falling off, both in the num
ber of vessels and in tonnage. There were
seven vessels less last month, three of which
were steamers and Tour sailing vessels.
There were altogether 10,348 tons less, of
which 8.860 tons Were of steam and 1,980
tons sail.
The falling off in steam tonnage was due
to the fact that two of the largest coastwise
steamers, the City of Savannah, of the New
York line, and the City of Macon, of the
Boston line, are at present laid up repairing.
There was also one French man-of-war in
port during the month and one steam yacht.

Of life is the blood. From it the system re

It bathes every tissue of the body. How
necessary, then, that the blood should be
kept pure and rich. Dr. Pierce's “Golden
Medical Discovery” is the great blood food
and blood purifier. It is a sovereign remedy
for all diseases due to impoverished blood,
consumption, bronchitis, weak lungs, scrof

From Hon. Joel A. Billups.
Madison, Ga., April 20,1887. Mr. 11. A.
Peteet: Dear Sir—Until about three months
ago I could not procure glasses that would
enable me to read, at night without serious
discomfort. I had tried pebbles and various
styles of glasses, but by reading for any
considerable length of time, particularly at
night, my eyes were fatigued aud gave me
pain. In January last, induced by testimo
nials froni friends in Macon, I procured a
pair of “Hawkes' Crystalized Lenses,” as
sold by you. aud have found them so clear,
soft and brilliant that I read for hours at a
time, by day or night, without experien
cing any discomfort or sense of fatigue. To
that extent, at least, my eyes have been
benefited, and at times I read both written
and printed matter without the aid of
glasses. They are certainly the most per
lect glasses I have ever used, and as such I
take pleasure iu recommending them. Re
spectfully yours, J. A. Billups.
All eyes fitted with these famous glasses at
the drug store Of Osceola Butler, Savannah,
Ga. Every pair warranted.
