SIFTINGS OF CITY NEWS. LITTLE GOSSIP FROM THE STREET AND SIDEWALK. Dashes Here and There by the News Reporters Yesterday’s Happenings Told in Brief Paragraphs-Picklngs at Police Headquarters. St. Joseph’s Infirmary received threei patients yesterday. Post D of the Travelers’ Protective Asso ciation will elect officers at its meeting to night. The Supreme Court yesterday affirmed the decision of the Superior Court in the Fogarty case. The Augusta National Exposition will remain open to the public until Nov. 17, in stead of closing Nov. 3, as at first an nounced. The annual spring oral examinations in the public schools will take place the last week in April. The pupils are already busy preparing for them. The City and Suburban railway received anew locomotive yesterday. The company is putting in a turn-out on Bay street to connect its Whitaker and Abercorn street lines. Messrs. Holst & Cos. cleared yesterday the Russian bark Navigator for Pooteeloff harbor, with 3,900 barrels of rosin weighing 1,779,705 pounds, valued at $7,500. Cargo by Messrs. S. P. Sbotter & Cos. The Ladies’ Parsonage Aid Society of the Wesley Monumental church held a very successful apron fair and festival at the old church at Drayton and Wayuo streets yes terday afternoon and last night. There was a rough-and-tumble fight be tween two colored boys at the corner of South Broad and Floyd streets yesterday afternoon. Both were well tousled in the sand, but neither hurt. Their anger sud denly subsided at the approach of a police man. , A barrel of waste in the back yard of Dr. 8. C. Parson’s drug store, at Liberty and Montgomery streets, was discovered to be on fire yesterday afternoon and was promptly extinguished. Had the tire not been discovered when it was, the building would soon have been in flames. A street row occurred at Barnard and Broughton streets last night between Thomas G. McQuade and Archer Rossoglio, which created no little excitement. Words led to blows, and the former was arrester) by a policeman and lodged in the barracks ou a charge of assaulting and striking the voluble Italian. Otto Murray (colored) concluded that he could comply with the ordinance as to grad ing his sidewalk more economically by taking the sand from tho street. His falsie system of economy led to his arrest yester day, and he will tie arraigned in the Mayor’s Court this morning for violating one ordi nance to comply with the provisions of un other. The Morning News noticed some time since that Dr. A. Oemler, of Wilmington Island, was having a petition signed asking the government to erect a light at the ob structions in the South channel for the ben efit of vessels coming from the southward through Augustine creek. It is understood that a light is to be placed as requested, and the lighthouse authorities are about locat ing it. Chief Fireman Fernandez has had printed a oomplete list of the fire alarm stations, to which are added condensed extracts from the fire department rules and explanations as to the various signals used by the depart - ment, and also instructions to key holders how to turn in alarms, etc. It also shows how the city is divided into fire districts and what alarms each company responds to. The lists are being posted in prominent places through the city. THE SPRING FLOWER SHOW. Savannah May Have an Exposition Building—How to Get it. The Floral and Art Association is about to give its spring exhibition, which this year will lie held ou April 17, 18 and 19. The association has been one of healthy and steady growth, and upon its roll of mem bers ate the names of the most prominent ladies and gentlemen of the city. The association was organized in a very unpretentious way, but it appeai-s to be destined to occupy an important place in the future of Savannah in cultivating a taste for the beautiful. Its exhibitions have heretofore been held in public halls, and at the last exhibition, and as will also be the case with that about to be held, an annex was erected to accom modate the exhibits. It has leen suggested that the association erect an Exhibition Building, in which to hold its exhibitions and fairs. A large and handsome frame structure could be erected at some point in the extended limits of the city, easily acces sible to the several lines of street ears. Such a building could bo used for many purposes besides those of the association, iii fact, with such an edifice within its city limits Savannah might aspiro to the honor of entertaining a national convention, political or otherwise. A block of land can be secured at this time at comparatively low figures, the in crease in the value of which in a few yoars would be a baudsome profit in itself. Possi bly for such a purpose the city would sell one of its reserved blocks at a nominal price. A stock company could tie formed to provide the money for the enterprise. The street railways, the several land syndicates, and private owners who would be benefited by increased earnings, or enhanced values of property would doubtless subscribe liber ally to such an undertaking. An annual Floral and Art Exhibition, to which might be added a mechanical department, would be of great benefit to tho city. LOUIS N. FALLIGANT DEAD. One of Savannah’s Oldest Citizens Passes Away. Louis Numa Falligant, one of Savannah's oldest citizens died at 5:15 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. L. C. Berrien, No. 172 South Broad street, of pneumonia, the result of a cold contracted two weeks ago last-night. The funeral services will lie conducted at 3:30 p. m. to-morrow, at the Savannah Baptist church, of which Mr. Falligant was a rnemlier. Afier which the remains will be interred in the family vault in Laurel Grove Cemeterj'. The deceased was born in tho island of Martinique* France, Dee. 28, 1808, lus parents removing to Paris in his earlier infancy. From Paris they emigrated to Savannah in 181(1, the deceasisi’s father, Louis Falligant, 1 ieing engaged in mercan tile pursuits uiltil his death in 1832. Louis N. Falligant received a commercial training and was for sixty years engaged in merchandizing, the last fifty years of his life keeping a store at No. 170 Bryan street. Ho was a respected citizen ard a man of known integrity. He was the father of eleven children, five of whom survive, viz: Dr. Louis A. Falligant, (..'apt. Robert Kalli gant, Mrs. T A. Burke, C. G. Falligant and Mrs. L. C. Berrien. STARTING OFF WITH A RUSH. April Brlngß Hotter Weather This Year Than it has in a Long Time. Yesterday was the hottest day of the season so far. Mercury mounted up to 86”, which is 11“ above the average for the past seventeen years. The highest reported in the Savannah district of the cotton belt was 89” at, (Juitman, Jesup and Live Oak (Fla.) Tho average highest temperature for tho thirteen sta tions in the district. was 88 . The season is beginning witn a boom, and wo far April tins year has gone wav ahead of auy pre vious April in many years. A HOTEL MAN’S VIEWa What IL I. Kimball Says About the New Savannah Hotel Scheme. Mr. H. I. Kimball, of Atlanta, passed through the city yesterday afternoon on his way to Brunswick to join his family, which is spending some time there. Mr. Kimball is establishing an improved refrigerator in most of the cities South, and will drop into Savannah before a great while with the n>w inventi m. A Morning News re porter saw him a few minutes at the Screven House with reference to the pro posed new hotel here. Air. Kimball says that he is glad to know that Savannah is interesting herself over a matter so essen tial to her future pro-perity. Mr. Kimball thinks that of all the cities in the South, Savannah most of all needs a hotel. In answer to a question as to the kind of a hotel most needed, he said: “What Savannah wants is a hotel that will accommodate the Northern tourists. It is just as essential for hor to have a hotel of this kind as it is for Jack sonville or St. Augustine, and certainly there is r,o city in Georgia that needs it half so much. Savannah, in my opinion, does not need a Ponce de Leon and no Kim ball House, but rather a combination of the two. The hotel might be in a measure commercial, but it should be mainly a tourists’ home.” “Do you think a hotel constructed on tho plan of which you speak would pay)” “I do. I can’t conceive of a better in vestment.” “What would be the cost of such a hotel?” “O that is a matter entirely with the pro jectors of the scheme. There is no limit to the costs of hotels. I suppose, though, Sa vannah would not lie satisfied wit h a build ing that would cost less than $BOO,OOO or #500,000. And for that sum a magnificent building can be erected.” “What do you think of tho proposed site?” “A more suitable site could not lie found in the city of Savannah. The pro jectors acted wisely, I think, in locating where they have. It is easily accessible from the depots; being almost in a direct line with both. Besides it is in a good part of the city, a thing very desirable in the location of any hotel.’’ Air. Kimball will remain a short time in Brunswick with his family, and will then return to his home in Atlanta. On his return he will probably give Savannah a call. THE NEW ENGINE HOUSE. The Fire Department’s Now Station on Waldburg Street. The new fire engine house at Waldburg and Price streets is about finished, and will be occupied to-day. For a while, until the department has an engine to put there, tho station will lie a hose reel station, and twelve men with anew reel and 650 feet of hose will constitute the force and apparatus. The force will consist of two jiermanent men and ten call int-n. Alarm box No. 28 is located at the new engine house, and at 3:30 o’clock this after noon a test alarm will be turned in to show that the box i< in working order. The completion of the new station affords needed protection to the growing south eastern section of the city. Tho company will respond to all alarms from stations south of Jones street, and with Engine No. 4 and the Protection Hose Com pany, both of wtiich are comparatively new companies, will prove a valuable ad junct to the department, and can hardly fail to effect a great saving in property in the southern part of the city. The fire department needs more men. “That,” said Chief Fernandez last night, “is the greatest need now. There are at present twenty-four paid mem bers of the department, but we need a goal many more.’’ The apjratus and men will he stationed at the new engine bou-e to-day, and will tie on duty after the test alarm is turned in this afternoon. MILITARY MATTERS. The First Regiment's Armory Ac cepted by the Board of Officers. The Republican Blues have elected Wil liam B. Spann, First Sergeant, to fill the va cancy occasioned by the recent promotion of F. P. Ilaupt to a lieutenancy. Private George Gregor was elected to succeed Sorgt. Spann. A committee consisting of Maj. John Schwarz. Chairman; Lieut. Jordan F. Brooks, of the Savannah Cadets, and Vet eran M. F. Molina, visited the new armory of tne First Regimout yesterday to inspect the building. They found all tho work satisfactory from the foundation up to the finishing touches of the painters, and will soreportto (lie hoard of regimental offi cers on April 16, at which time the build ing will be formally turned over to them.

The poopln of the upper part of Bryan county and those of the lower p irt of Bul loch have boon cut olf from tus city for several days. Tho bridges and ferry roa Is are under water, and tho only comutuiiica tion Is by crossing the Ogeoeneo river and toe river swamps in boats, A gentleman who arrived from Bryan yost-rday said that, l.e had to cross th - river and traverse th -.w.unps for a mil >iia bo l before lie found dry la 1 1 to walk on.

The Mutual Gas Light Company to Manufacture a New Fuel. Mr. David Douglas, Secretary and Su perintendent of the Mutual Gas Light Com pany of this city, in an interview with a Morning News reporter, yesterday said that on Monday next active work will be gin in disconnecting the two united systems of mains now supplying illuminating gas, and connecting them again in such a way as to have two separate systems—one system for furnishing the present illuminating gas, and tho other for supplying the non-car bureted or fuel gas. Twenty men will be put to work on the mains Monday. A gang of ten men will 1m put to work changing tho service pipes, and when the Tuesday steamer from New York arrives it will bring pipe for one and quarter miles of new mains and another force will be put to work laying them. By May 1 tho heaviest part of the work will hat e been done, and the company lias asked the City Council to permit it to continue street work under the supervision of the sanitary authorities two weeks later if necessary. The principal new mains will he from Bay to Gaston streets on Whitaker, and from Bay to York on Jefferson street. Tlie East Broad street works, which have been idle since the consolidation of tho two gas companies, have been fitted up for the manufacture of the fuel gas, while the Bay street works will continue the manufacture of the illuminating gas. The company expects that this will not be for long, because the claim is made that by the use of the Welsbach burner the non carbureted water-gas w ll come into gen eral use as an illuminator, because while it will reduce the amount consumed one-half, and cost less than one-half as much it will give better results than the gas now used, or the electric light, and as a result, both the Bay and East Broad street works will manufacture the cheaper and lietter article. The desire of the company is to supplv cheap fuel gas, in place of which coal and wood are now used, and give Savannah a gas fuel as efficient as the supply of natural gas in the gas districts. The object is to get the fuel gas going during the month of May. The Welsbach burner in connection with the non-carbureted water-gas has boon suc cessfully tried in England and Germany, and the fuel gas was in usein Troy, N. Y., and Is>s Angeles, Cal. Mr. Douglas was asked if he could ap proximate tho possible cost to consumers of the new gas. In reply he said that he dis liked to do that, as it would not be in his power to fix tho price, but it would be ’way down, possibly from 50c. to fiOc. per 1,000 cubic feet, whore it is used both for fuel and illuminating purposes. Where it is used for illuminating purposes only, about 90c. or one-half tho present price, and perhaps still lower. Then a much less amount will he consumed, less than one-half. TO ASK FOR MORE MONEY. The Cotton Exchange Discusses the River and Harbor Appropriation. There was a special meeting of the Cot ton Exchange at noon yesterday to take ac tion in regard to an increased appropria tion for the river and harbor. There was a very largo attendance, and although there was no discussion of the subject it was evi dent that tho mercantile community is fully alive to the injustice done the city by the River and Harbor Committee in its ap propriation for Savannah. E. M. Green, Esq., President, called the meeting to order ami Mr. $5. F. Bryan, Su perintendent of the exchange, acted as sec retary. Mr. C. Menelas offered a series of resolu tions relative to the matter which was be fore the meeting, but accented the follow ing, offered by Mr. J. F. Minis, as a substitute,and it was unanimously adopted: Heeolvci, Thar, the President of the Exchange be requested to appoint a committee of three members to confer with the Board of Trade, City Council, Central Railroad and Banking Company and Savannah, Florida and Western Hallway Company, for the purpose of adopting such treasures as may appear best, to get the appropriation for Kavannah river and harbor increased during the pendency of the river and harbor bill before Congress. The President appointed the following gentlemen as the committee called for by the resolution: Capt. W. W. Gordon. Col. J. H. Kstill and J. F. Minis. A letter from Senator Brown to a mem ber of the Exchange was read and also a letter from Lieut. Carter, which were li - toned to with marked attention. Lieut. Carter stated that from statistical and other information, at the lowest estimates there lias resulted from ttie improvements already executed in the harbor an unnual saving in freignt rates aloue of more than the total amount of money expended by the United States upon tho harbor within tho last twenty-five years. LAID OFF FOR THREE MONTHS. The Customs Department Getting Along with Less Force. There seems to be a sort of divinity that hedges in the government o finer, and in many instances they act as if they were the s|>ocial guardians of bureaus for the sup pression of what is going on that would interest the people. It is no secret that on the first of the month there were three temporary suspen sions in the custom house here, presumably owing to a deficiency in the appropriations, and us rumors had assigned different causes and jnultii lied the number suspended, a Morning News reporter called a: the cus tom house yesterday to learn the exact number of the sus|vensions, the names of the suspended and the real cause of a re duction of the force. The errand was not wholly a success. The action of the Collector of Customs in temporarily suspending three of the force for three months from April 1 had not yet been officially acknowledged by the Wash ington end of the department, and a gentle ma i wh i assumed to s|ieak for the local office declined to state who had been sus pended until the Wash ligton authorities had sustained the action, or rather notified the Savannah customs office that they received t\ie official notice and to “let them go Gallagher.” The A1 (mining News could not wait for the big w, ite envelope with mi ta[w> und sealing wax, and looked elsewhere for tho information, nn I learned that the following persons have been laid oft' for three months, or subject to the approval of the Treasury Department at the capital: Christopher J. Melvin, messenger: R. C. Ferrill Hapclo quarantine station; and Joseph Haywood (colored), lioatman. Looking Up the Titles. Uniter! Slates District Attorney Dupont Guerry was in the city this week, and spent a day looking up the titles to the property at corner York and Abercorn streets, re cently purchised by the United States gov ernment for the site of the new post office and United States Court House. As the papers run hack t > colonial days Mr. Guerry fund that one day was inadequate to complete the investigation, and he w is called back to Macon ben re finishing his legal exam nation, lie will return Monday and take up the work where it was left off. In the Police Court. Mayor I<C(t*r held the hoards in the Mayor’s Court yesterday morning. The case of Prince Sims, charged with robbery, was continued. Walter Arnold was fined #2 or two days for throwing rocks ii the street. Sam Williams (colored), who gave a mortgage note on a ouw and calf he did not own, settled tne debt, and tho pro eouting witness not appearing, tho esse was dis mt'-sed. The against J. It. Brown, charged with being asleep under a stoop on West ii not re *t, a. is ntiiued. Ili'ii Hrowu was turned over to the City Court for stealing copper from George F. Byrne. VERY NEARLY COMPLETE. Progress of the Work on the Colum bus and Western Railroad. The work on the Good w ater extension of the Columbus and Western railroad is being pushed rapidly, and it is expected that trains will be running through from Colum bus to Birmingham within a short time. The work of tracklaying has been steadily going on for the past five months. Forty miles of track has been laid on the east end, and twenty miles on the west end of the line. Only twelve more miles remain to be laid. This work, however, has been consid erably delayed for several days lately on account of the heavy rains. Considerable damage was done, but it is being fast re p-aired. The entire traeklaying force is now at work between Good water and Childorsburgrepairing the newly laid track, which was so badly washed out by the heavy rains. This part of tho road had already been turned over to the tr importa tion department, and trains were to have boon placed on last Sunday. The damage caused by the rains has delayed the putting on of trains between Goodwater and Child ersburg until April 15. Ail the bridges are complete except the bridge over Stinking creek. Work on this structure began this week. It will be eighty feet long, and will be built of wrought iron. The bridge recently completed over the Coosa river is said to lie one of the finest iu Alabama. The entire road is being built in a very substantial way. When com plete, it will lie not only a marvel of en gineering skill, but one of the best roads in the South. The Oak Mountain tunnel was cleared some weeks ago. The track will be laid through ii in a few days. Work on the Coosa Mountain tunnel is rapidly near ing completion. It is expected to be clear Apiril 15. The large forces are working night aud day. With tho completion of this tunnel the hardest part of tno entire work of building tho extension will bo fin ished. The contract for the depot in Birmingham arc about being let by General Manager Belknap. The officials ot the road fully ex pected to have trains into Birmingham by the last of next month, but the work has been throwm back about two weeks on account of the damage sustained by tho rains. Everything is rapidly getting back into shape now, and tlie entire work will be com pleted by early summer. Local Personal. 8. G. McLendon, Esq., Thomasville, is in the city.

Where boxes and bundles were deliv ered to a railroad company to be trans ported by it. with the statement that they contained household goods, and ttioy were so received and receipt 'd for by the com pany, hut in tact a considerable portion of tne articles delivered were jewelry or ornn menls and wearing apparel, and it appeal eil that the rate of freight for household goods was lower than the rate for the other articles mentioned, a verdict for the full value of the articles in favor of the con signee, who sued the railroad for non delivery, was excessive. 2. The misrepresentation mentioned above was a fraud upon the,carrier, who did not undertako to carry anything but household goods, and hence it was liable only for the non-deliverv of such household goods. 8. The value of the household goods, as shown by the evidence, was not over $101; and the court below is directed to require all over that amount to be written off, and that the judgment for that amount be al lowed to stand. Judgment reversed on terms. lu the case of Mohr vs. Dillon the judg ment of the lower court was affirmed. Judge Blanford in ruling, said: 1. An auctioneer’s memorandum as fol lows: “Sale in front of store, June IS, lASti, D. It. Dillon, (Mohr Bros.), A. Mohr. It*> acres of land, fronting on Waters R., at Ih ~ #1,575,” being ambiguous on its face, may be explained by parol evidence; and, in ihis ease, such evidence, showing that the land was bounded in a certain way and fronted on Waters road; that the I) R. Dijon referred to was theowncrof the land which was sold for him by the auctioneer; ami that the A. Mohr named was the pur chaser, was properly admitted. (a) At common law and in many of the State, of the Union, suen evidence would not have been admissible, hut under our Code it was undoubtedly proper. 2. The rule as to the admissibility of parol evidence to explain a patent ambiguity in a deed to land, applies witn equal force to an auctioneer's memorandum of the sale of land. 8. Where a testator devised land to a legatee, and the land was turned over to the legatee by the executors, it becams the pr perty of the legal ee. If other legatees bad any complaint to ma’ce of the manner in which the estate was administered, that would he a matter betweon them and the executor. Hence, that legatees under sueh a will sued the executors, claiming that certain expenses should not be put on that cart of the estate willed to them, to which suit the legatee fust name 1 was not a party, would not e.oud the title of the said legatee to the lands turned over to him.
