COUNCIL'S LONG SESSION.
*W. B. ADAMS ELECTED POET WAR
DEN AFTER 36 BALLOTS.
The City to Sell the Remainder of the
Dillon Tract Next Week—Congress
Street to be Paved from Drayton to
West Broad—The Cotton OH Com
pany’s Petition —The City Charter
Amendments.
The City Counci Iliad about as hard a time
last night electing a Port Warden to succeed
Capt. Thomas H. Laird as the Florida Leg
islature is having to elect a successor to
Senator Jones.
There were ten candidates for the office.
On the thirty-seventh ballpt W. B. Adams
was elected by a bare majority over William
Proctor. The other candidates were Jona
than Stem, Peter Donelan, A. G. Ybanez.
William Cantwell, Anton Stamm,
W. L. Waithour, W. H. Patterson,
and George M Weymouth. The Council
entered into an election without having cau
cussed upon the candidates. Tiie result was
what might have been expected. Tho Al
dermen are unused to disposing of questions
in regard to which there is likely to be any
wide difference of opinion, without having
previously reached an agreement in caucus,
and tho election wa3 unwieldy iu their
hands.
BEGINNING TO BALLOT.
During the first eight ballots none of the
candidates received more than three votes.
Alderman Duncan suggested that the can
didate receiving the lowest vote be dropped
upon each ballot. Alderman Myers thought
it would be a good idea to postpone
the election, and Alderman Wells suggested
a recess of ten minutes, in which a caucus
might lie held. Neither suggestion, how
ever, was adopted and the balloting went
on.
STICKING TO THEIR CHOICE.
The twentieth ballot gave Proctor 6, and
tho vote then scattered. When the twenty
ninth ballot was reached the Mayor re
marked that the thirtieth ballot would lie
Sretty sure to result in an election, but it
idn’t. By this time an hour and a half
had lieeu spent in balloting end the
Aldermen were getting tired. The thirty -
second ballot resulted in a tie Viet ween
Proctor and Adams. It was pretty evi
dent that the election lay between these two.
Foui- more ballots were taken and on the
thirty-sixth Adams received a majority and
was declared elected.
THE COTTON OIL COMPANY.
Mr. Lew is W. Haskell, representing the
Southern Cotton Oil Company, petitioned
for exemption of the company from city
taxation in event it shall locate its proposed
oil mills within the western extended limits
of the city, which embrace nearly ell the land
fronting on the river as far as the water
works, and which, under the act of the Legis
lature of 1883, will be subject to city taxa
tion after six years, until the
city be extended bona fide over
the western extension. The company,
Mr. Haskell stated, has instructed him to
select a site for its mills either fronting on
the river west of the Central railroad
wliarves or on the railroad’s Vale Koval
property outside of the city limits, lie
esked that the petition be eoiwidered at the
Council's earliest convenience, as the com
pany desires to commence work at once.
The matter was referred to the Committee
on Assessments.
TO AMEND THE CHARTER.
Alderman Bogart’s resolutions providing
for an amendment to the city charter con -
ferring the veto power upon “the Mayor and
providing for the election of half of tho
Board of Aldermen every two years for a
term of four years, was taken up as a special
order. Alderman Bogart asked that the
resolutions be considered seriatim. The
first resolution, conferring upon tho Mayor
the veto power, was unanimously adopted.
The second, providing for a change in the
manner of electing Aldermen, was defeated
by a vote of (i to 5, only eleven members of
the board being present.
TO PAVE CONGRESS STREET.
Alderman Thomas’ resolution, approving
the Congress street property owners’petition
and authorizing the paving of Congress
street between Drayton and West Broad
streets, was taken from the table and unani
mously passed. The City Surveyor was
authorized to advertise for bids at once.
The kind of pavement to be used, whether
asphalt or stone, will be decided upon by
Council when the bids are in. The
petition to pave Congress street was
presented early in the winter, but it failed
to be upproved in time to get tho work (lone
this spring, and it will now have to go over
until fall. The Surveyor will advertise at
once for proposals to lay the paving, and
everything will hie in “readiness to begin
work iu November.
THE DILLON TRACT SALE.
Alderman Haines, cliairman of the Com
mittee on City Lote, offered a resolution, and
it was adopted, authorizing the sale of the
unsold portion of the Dillon tract which
w a offered last Tuesday, at unction in front

DROWNED AT COHEN 4 S BLUFF.
A Waiter on the Steamer Ethel Caught
by an Undertow.
John Judd {colored), a waiter on the
steamer Ethel, was drowned nt Cohen’s
' Bluff Tuesday night About fifteen
minutes after the steamer was tied up
at her landing, Judd and three deck hands
went into the river to bathe. Judd was said
to be a good swimmer, and struck out
across the river, but the current was
swift and it drifted him about 200 yards be
low’ where the steamer was lying. He had
got within about five feet of the Georgia
shore, when he sank in twenty-five feet
of water. A boat was launched from tiie
Ethel and every effort was made to
reach him, but he was out of sight before it
got there. The river was dragged for the
body, but it is presumed that the undercur
rent earned it out of reach. There were a
number of ladies on the deck of the Ethel
watching the lathers, and nothing was
thought of Judd's drifting, as he seemed at
home in thp water until he sank, when the
alarm was given. Judd was about 28 years
old, and bore a good reputation with the offi
cers of the boat. His family resides here.

month.
TWO BRIGHT STARS IN MAY.
Saturn and Venus, and Where to Look
for Them.
Saturn is evening star. Though exceeded
in size and brilliancy by Venus and Jupiter,
we give him the place of honor on the plan
etary records for May, for after the passage
of this month his light will grow dim among
the brotherhood, owing to his near ap
proach to the great luminary’. Saturn also
figures in the most interesting planetary
event of the month. On the 30th, at noon
day, Saturn and Venus are in conjunction,
the ringed wonder of the skies lining at
times 2’ 15' south of the faii-est of tho stars.
A powerful telescope will bring out the
planets at the time of conjunction, or at
the moment when they are in
the same right ascension, but observers
with the unaided eye will find a love
ly picture paineea on the celestial
canvas on the evenings of the 29th and 30th.
On the former evening Saturn will be east
of Venus, and on the latter evening he will
tie west, of her. The meeting and passing of
two large planets is always a noteworthy
event. The moon on the day of her first
quarter will lend her silvery light to the
scene, and the two bright planets will hang
side by side in tiie western sky, coming into
view soon after sunset, and continuing to
adorn the firmament until after 10 o’clock.
It is as interesting to watch the approach of
the two planets as it is to observe them when
they are at the nearest point, and this may
be done on every evening during the month.
WANT FURTHER TIME.
The Hotel Syndicate Asks for a Refusal
of the Barracks Property.
A meeting of the new hotel syndicate was
heldwestorday, and it was decided to ask
the Real Estate Company for
the refusal of the barracks property for for
ty-five or sixty days longer. Home of the
gentlemen have been absent from tho city
recently, and they want a little more time
to think tiie matter over and decide upon
details lief ore going into the project. A let
ter received from Mr. H. B. Hollins, of New
York, states that he believes all oi the money
Heeded can be raised in that city.
The Hussars’ Picnic.
The Georgia Hussars will hold their May
picnic at Greenwich Park to-day. Momliei-s
and all guests will lie passed free over the
cars which will leave West Broad street at 11
o’clock. Those ears will connect with a

will be a committee on each car to look after
packages. The Coast Line road will run a
special train out at Do’clock for the conve
nience of those who cannot go on the
train with the company. Cars will also
leave at 3, 4 and 5 j>. m. Tho shooting con
test will 1 login at 12 o’clock and all entries
will close ui 2:80. Active members will

New' Orleans, La., May 4.—New Or
leans just played with Savannah to-day.
The locals played carelessly until it was
necessary to save the game, and then they
went in, hatted hard, ran bases like quarter
horses, and fielder! like veterans. Dallas,
Reilly. Peltz and Durmeyer did the best
work for Savannah. Dallas and “Shorty”
Fuller were both hurt, in the latter part of
the game. The home team again gave
Hoffman a chance in the box and he was
very wild, but the rest of the team carried
him through successfully. Ed. Clark,
pitcher, and Forrest, outfielder, arrived to
day and will play with New’ Orleans to
morrow. It was ladies’ day, but the attend
ance fell off to about 1,200. The following

AMID FLORA’S BEAUTIES
OPENING OF THE SPRING FLOWER
SHOW AT ARMORY HALL.
Fine Display of Roses, Plants ar.d Cut
Flowers—The Art and Fancy Goods
Exhibition- Some of the Exhibitors-
Mr. Brandt’s Works-A Large Crowd
in Attendance.
The Chatham Artillery armory last, night
was a spot to enchant fairies. The hall was
filled with beautiful exhibits of art, and the
yard outside was even lovelier, because iu it
were exhibited specimens of nature’s handi
work. Flowers, golden, red. blue, wliite
and of all intermediate shades breathed
forth a delicate odor freighting the air with
sweetness. Blooming plants struck two
senses at once h v their beauty and fragrance,
while the foliage plants attracted admira
tion through their stateliness or pure, deep
color.
To do justice to all that was to be seen ex
hausted the best vocabulary of adjectives
and synonyms before the visitor got half
way around. Only one opinion was heard,
and that was that the Savannah Floral and
Art Association s spring exhibition was high
ly creditable.
’ It is onlv the .second shew that the society
has held, but it was plain that there has
been a far deeper interest taken in this exhi
bition than in the first one last fall. Singu
larly the asso iation basl been unfortunate
on both occasions. The (test exhibition was
late, on : account of the earthquakes,
and the present one is late be
cause of the cold snaps early in
the spring. Had the show been three weeks
earlier the floral display would have been
much finer, as it would be three weeks
hence. However, it is very good as it is.
THE LEADING EXHIBITORS.
Mr. George Wagner, Messrs. Oelschig &
Meyers, and Mr. Tneo. Meves are the pro
fessional florists exhibiting, and their dis
play's are fine. Mr. Meves’ is the nearest of
these to the entrance. His specialty is
jialms and colmses. His display of coiiuses
embraces probably fifty varieties, and their
variegated leaves were much admired. The
ferns in this collection are noticeable, as is
also a pavonia wioti, which is something
rare.
Messrs. Oelschig & Meyers marie a specialty
of cut roses and geraniums in their exhibit.
They have nearly BUO varieties of cut roses,
some exquisitely beautiful. A single Mel
ville de Lyons seemed to reign as queen of
the display, its white petals being well
opened and strikingly handsome. Among
other-pretty roses in this display were her
majesty (new), American beauty, la bnl
liante, la roslere, jacq nes and marechal noils.
The foliage plants arc handsome.
ROSES BY THE HUNDRED.
Mr. George \V agner, who has the south
west corner of the yard, shows 43 varieties
of rdbos and a number of geraniums. In
roses he displays a beautiful Marechal Neil
climbing, and in his collection of cut blooms
he has, among the most handsome, a Sir
Garnett, Ib r Majesty, Baroness Roths
child, Magna Cnarta, Male. Moroe,
Jacqueminots and some William Allan
Richardsons, a small but beautiful rose. He
has also an apple geranium bearing seed
which wholesales for over SI,OOO a quart.
Mr. Wagner also has in his exhibit, among
other things, a number of silver leaf gerani
ums, maiden liair ferns and n Mikado
chrysanthemum, which was at the fall ex
hibition. This last mentioned flower, which
was blooming then, is blooming again, six
months ahead of time.
THE UNPROFESSIONAL FLORISTS.
Mr. J. F. LaFar has one of the largest
displays of any of the unprofessional
florists. He has fifteen varieties of gera
niums, some very beautiful, calla lilies,
double pink blooming ivy, mourning bride
and hanging baskets. In cut flowers he
shows pansies, holly hocks, lilies and
amayllis. Mr. 8. P. Hamilton, President of
the society, has a pretty exhibit of cut
roses, verlenas, magnolias, colinses, flower
ing begonias and other plants.
Mr. Thomas A. Ybanez shows a splendid
exhibited begonias, embracing forty varie
ties. He also exhibits a pretty asparagus
vine, some rare ferns, besides crotons,
abutilons and palms.
Mrs. J. Guerard Heyward has a table
beautifully set off with poppies, cut roses,
blooming pomegranates, pansies and other
annuals. Tiie exhibit embraces twenty va
rieties of cut roses. The tea roses and Mme.
Lombard were highly praised.
THE CUT FLOWER EXHIBIT.
The most beautiful exhibit of cut flowers
is made by Mrs. A. S. Nichols. Her basket
of cut flowers, containing lilies, iiansies,
verbenas, Sweet Williams, pinks,mignonette
and other lovely blooms, was the admired
of the admired.
Mr. A. N. Mills exhibits some pretty cut
roses and Mrs. J. G. Thomas displays fine
specimens of clematis and Johnsonii.'
Mr. F. M. Bliss displays four baskets of
large luscious-looking, tempting straw
berries.
In the middle of the yard Is a fountain,
around the base of which Mr. Wagner has
placed on attractive border of pansies and
daisies. Mr. L&Far exhibits an aquarium,
containing gold and silver fish and hybrids.
•£HE ART DISPLAY.
Mr. Carl Brandt, Director of the Telfair
Academy, superintended the hanging of the
pictures, and that is to say that it has been
done with tiie bwt possible artistic effect.
The Director has a space in one corner of
the hail where specimens of the work of his
art class axe, qxijjbited. Modeling and
painting can.. lie learned together,
he says, and his pupils have
sent some more than clever studies in clay.

Thirteen Two-Cent Postage Stamps for
One Cent and a Quarter.
A report was in circulation through the
street the past few days that Appel &
Schaul, the One Price Clothiers, were selling
for an advertisement thirteen two-cent
postage stamps for one cent and a ouarter.
The report being quite freely circulated a
great number of people called at their store,
inquiring for the thirteen stamps for the
above mentioned price, at the same time
laying down 3c. on the counter and asked
how they were going to make the change,
whereupon they were informed that they
could not of heai-d exactly right as the One
Price Clothiers do not object accommodat
ing any one by selling them thirteen 2c.
stamps for lc. and a quarter, not l/*c, but
lc. and a quarter of a dollar, but what they
do object to is for you to go elsewhere and
pay more money for anything in the Cloth
ing, Hats, or Gents’ Furnishing Goods line
than they charge, especially when you get
the benent of getting as goo and a fit as any
garment made to order, as they have a first
class tailor in the house for that purpose.
To those who have not guessed at the collar
buttons contained in a glass jar on exhibi •
tion at their store for a $l5 suit and a gold
mounted silk umbrella, you are invited to
do so, as same will be counted by responsible
parties on May 8. Appel & Schaul, One
Price Clothiers, 16.3 Congress street.
