The decision in the case of Hammond, Hull & Cos. vs. Wilcher, is of considerable importance in Savannah. The court ruled that, the Commissioner of Agricul ture has no power to authorize extra territorial insjiection or to dispense with interterritorial inspection. Following is the substance of the decision, which was announced by Chief Just ee Bleckley: Tne official duty of inspecting fertilizers provided for by the law's of this State can not be performed beyond the limits of the State. The Commissioner of Agriculture has no power to authorize extra territorial inspection or to dis pense with interterritorial inspection. Without the latter any salo of commercial fertilizers made within the State is unlawful and a contract for price will not be en forced. The suit in the Justice’s Court was by the payers against the maker upon a note dated May 9, 1885, given for the Di'i'*e of a commercial fertilizer known as the Farmer’s Ammoniated and Dissolved bone. The note contained numerous admis sions and waivers, the sum of which was that the debt was absolute and open to no defense. The defense was made, however, involving the question whether the fertilizer had lieen duly inspected so as to be legally sold in the State. Tiie evidence was conflicting as to whether tiie sacks were branded and tagged but as to the place of inspection there was no conflict. The inspection was by one of the inspectors of the State but was made in South Carolina at the plaintiff's factory, and was the article in bulk before it was put in the sacks in which it was sold. One of the rules anil regula tions for the season of 1884-86 by the Com missioner of Agriculture was that inspec tions may lie made outsideof the State or in bulk. The sale was through the plaintiff’s agent at Warrenton, Ua., and there the note was executed. The jury found for the de fendant, and the plaintiffs sued out a cer tiorai, which the Supreme Court overruled, because the inspection was in South Caro lina, and not in Georgia. The judgment is therefore affirmed. HEALTH OF THE CONVICTS. The current weekly report of the princi pal physician of the penitentiary shows only fifteen cases of acute sickness among 1,509 convicts. Dr. Westmoreland said to-day * t hat he believed the splendid sanitary con dition of the camps was largely the result of the recent investigation by t he Governor. Public attention was attracted this after noon to an announcement that on,Thurs<tay night at the artesian well two deserters from the Salvation Army, Capt. Baker and Nat Anderson, would publicly expose the army in its true inwardness, and especially show up Col. Light in bis connec tion with the finances of the institu tion. The public is looking for a rich chapter. The Governor will remember those who are in prison on Thanksgiving day and par don a number of convicts whose cases he ha* thoroughly investigated and found de serving of executive clemency. Executive warrants were issued to-day to a number of ex-Confederates laboring under disabilities specified in the new act. Among them was E. B. William, of Pike county, of the Forty-fourth Georgia regiment, who was shot through the left wrist, right arm and received four bullets in his right hip and leg. He was paid SSO for his disabled right arm and right leg. The Treasury paid the lunatic asylum $14,583 to-day, being the appropriation for September. Suicide at Rome. Rome, Ga., Nov. 23.—J. W. Akridge, a prominent young business man of Anniston, Ala., was found dead in lied at the Rome Hofei to-night. A quantity of morphine was on the table near liis bed. He arrived here last night and took a room, which he kept all day. Nothing was discovered to indicate whether his death was suicidal or accidental. Augusta Notes. Augusta, Ga., Nov. 23.— The factory Operatives held a largo meeting to-night in the interest of the coming exposition. A considerable amount of money was raised on the spot, and committees were appointed to canvass throughout the entire factory’ section. Solomon Blankensee, a prominent Jewish citizen died to-day. Tampa Can Give Thanks. Tampa, Fla., Nov. 22. —There were no new cases and no deaths to-day. Union Thanksgiving services will be held in the Congregational church Thursday. Seven nurses leave for Savannah on the morning train. The weather is warmer. A Dwelling Burned. Pensacola, Fla.. Nov. 22.—A dwelling house belonging to J. A. Harrison, of Mil ton, was destroyed bv tiro last night. The loss is about $2,500. There was $2,000 in surance on the property. HIS HEART CUT OPEN. And the Man Lived for Two Hours Afterward. El Paso, Tex., Nov. 22.—A case of }iecti iiar interest to medical men was devel oped here to-day. Last evening a Mexican, named Rico, stabbed another Mexican, named Parada. The wounded man did not at once give signs of being fatally injured. He stood up, and even walked, with a little as sistance. City Physician J. A. McKinney was called anil Paradu’s wound was exam ined. It was found to be a cut about half an inch long over the heart. From Purada’s strength and his frequent efforts to got on his feet the doctor con cluded, without probing the wound fully, that tiie knife has not gone in deeply’. Parada would have stood up and walked around again had he not been compelled to lie still, lie was undressed and the wound was sewed up, when he suddenly fell back and expired, having lived nearly two hours after lieiug stabbed. Being at a loss to ex plain the symptons, Dr. McKinney held a post mortem to-day, and on removing the neart found that the knife of tho murderer, evidently a sti. itto. had penetrated to the left ventricle C ti-> heart, making a gash about a quarter of an inch wide. Accord ing to all medical theories, tiie man should not have lived over ten minutes, if that long. “The only explanation of the phenomenon which I can see,” said Dr. McKinney, “is that the blood clotted at once and filled up the small hole made by the stilleto. As far 1 know the case is unprecedented.” THE NEXT HOUSE. When the Caucus to Provide for Its Or ganization Will be Held. Washington, D. C., Nov. 22.—The cau cus of the Democratic members of the House to select the official corps will be held according to custom on the Saturday even ing preceding the assembling of Congress. As it is not known definitely how many members will enter the caucus it is imposs ible to state until it is held how many votes will be required to determine the ticket. There are 168 regular Democrats on the roll of the new House and four In dependents with Democratic inclinations, so that the maxium number who may lie present varies from 168 to 172. It would take, therefore, somewhere from 85 to 87 votes to elect in the caucus, assuming all the members elected to l>e present. It is altogether improbable, however, that there will be a full attendance at the caucus, as it will probably require a smaller number than the minimum named to make a selec tion. There is every indication still that there will be no change in the official corps of the House unless it lie in the position of Doorkeeper. The only observable fight now is over that office, for which quite a number of candidates are in the field. The list, as it now stands, consists of Mr. Donelson of Tennessee (the in cumbent), Mr. Nichols of Texas. Mr. Walker of Minnesota, Mr. Hurt of Mississ sippi, Mr. Barnett of New York, and Mr. Reeder of Pennsylvia. Mr. Reeder was a candidate for Doorkeeper of the last House, but got no votes. His candidacy now is not considered formidable. Mr. Walker has the support of the Democrats from Minnesota. Mr. Nichols lias only part of the Texas dele gation. The indications are that the fight will narrow down to Donelson and Hurt. EVENTS ON THE TURF.

Local and General Gossip In Railway Circles. The Columbus Enquirer-Sun says that tho work on the Columbus and Western road is progressing in good sliai>e. Alter leaving Goodwater, five miles of the track is in first-class order, and eleven miles—the balance of the distance to Sylaeauga— nearly ready to be received from the con tractor. Trains would have been running into Sylaeauga some time ago, but have been detained by a heavy cut, which was finished to grade this week. Tho track will be surfaced and trains ready to run into Sylaeauga in a few days, connecting with tho A. and A. railroad to Annis ton. Four miles of track has lieen laid beyond Sylaeauga. The grading to Childersberg has been finished, and but for the trestling tho track could be laid to Childersburg. The track will roach that point in four weeks, and then wo will connect with the East Tennessee, Virginia anil Georgia rail road. The grading has all been finished from Childerslxirg to the tunnels, a distance of eighteen miles. One mile of track from Childersberg to the bridge on Coosa river has been laid several months; the piers have all been finished, anil the Phoenix Bridge Company are very rapidly put ting the bridge together. It will be finished about Dec. 20. Then the track-laving will progress very rapidly. The tunnels arc not progressing so fast. They are about two thirds completed. After going beyond the tunnels the grading from Birmingham to that point is nearly completed. Fourteen miles of track has been laid to Cahawba river, where it is waiting on the bridge, which, when com pleted, will let the track-laying soon reach the tunnels. When the tunnels are finished trains will run straight through. OVER IN CHARLESTON. The Day’s Happenings In the Palmetto State's Metropolis City. Mr. Earle Sloan has received an import ant commission from the gvovernment geological t u vey and will be stationed at Charleston to make certain scientific obser vations. Mr. Sloan’s observations on the earthquake have given him a prominent place among the geologist of the country. There arc three church* in Charleston without pastors. The First Baptist church has had no regular preacher sin** the re moval of the Rev. A. J. S. Thomas to Orangeburg: the Westminster Presbyterian church lias lieen without a pastor since the resignation of Dr. J unkin, and the Citadel Square Baptist church is lixiking around for u successor to the Rev. Charles A. Htakely, who will shortly leave Charleston for Wash ington. A Farmer’s Somnambulistic Adven ture. From the Missouri Republican. Antone Schubert, a well-known farmer, about 60 years of age, in a fit of somnam bulism, jumped from the second story win dow of the Tiemnnn House, on East Main street, Belleville, about 2 o'clock yesterday morning, into the rear yard, and luckily escaped with no more serious injuries tliaii a sprained ankle and a bruised arm and back. The farmer retired at 0 o’clock, and all went well until shortly before 2 o'clock, when he dreamed that his stock was suffer ing for want of water. He jumped out of lied, and, imagining that tho blankets were his overcoat, he wrapped himself in them, and, without awakening, mistook the win dow for the door and jumped out. Next to the hotel was a one-story brick building, used for a storehouse, with a narrow pas sageway between the two buildings, scarce ly wide enough for a child to walk through. Schubert fell through this open ing to the ground, a distance of 16 feet. The fail awakened him, but ho was wedged so tightly between the two buildings that he could not extricate himself, uml so doubled up that he could scarcely breathe or cry out for help. A wide-awake policeman heard the noise made by the fall, nnd, thinking he had a good catch, lie appeared u]xin the scene with a club in one hand mid a revolver in the other, ready to capture the supposed burglar alive or dead. The hostler, hearing the imlieeman enter the yard, wasawakenea by the noise, and, imagining that it was a horse thief after tho valuable stock, rushed out of the barn prepared to demolish the policeman. At this juncture a low moan was board in the narrow passageway, “For Uod’s sake, help mo out; I’m dying,” which came from the somnambulistic farmer, who was now wide awake. The hostler saw the policeman's star, and the peeler recognized the hostler with his pitchfork. Mutual ex planation* followed, the implements of war were laid aside and a crowbar and a wooden lever procured. After an hour's hard work Schubert was released from his unpleasant position, nearly frightened to death, but otherwise not seriously injured.
