LEMONS GOING UP. A Big Advanoe in Priceß Owing to the Short Crop. The rise in the market of any commodity is not folt more keenly than the rise of lemons in the heated term, and lemons have gone up $2 on the box in New York this week. They are in almost as much demand as ice. The Savannah market has not felt the full effect of the rise as yet, but lemons that were hilled at go lost week now com mand #4 51) per box. There are not weeu 25,000 uml 40,000 boxes of lemons handled hero for the local demand auddistributive points. Savannah alone consumes from 9,000 to 10,000 boxes annually. The rise is due to the short crop and increasing demand. The Palermo crop is the last of the season, and the greater part of it is in New York, Boston, Baltimore and New Orleans ami on shipboard for those ports, so that 'he extent of the supply is known, and dealers say that the rise this week is very slight to what will follow before the Florida lemons begin to come in, in the fall. The bulk of the lemons coming to this country are handled in New York, but Bal timore, Boston and New Orleans are begin ning to handle shiploads, although not so successfully as in New York, where expert dealers are familiar with the care of lemons. The jobbers throughout the country have brokers at the lemon markets, who buy by lots, from which five or more boxes are selected as samples. The remaining boxes of the lot may bo better or worse than the sample, but that is at the buyer’s risk. The broker sends the brand of tho lot purchased to the jobber, with the price. A catalogue of the ship’s cargo and sales by lot and brand is mailed to the jobber. His broker cannot deceive linn. A catalogue goes to the owner of the lemons. He can not be deceived as to the price his fruit brought. It is protection all arouud. The bulk of the lemons come from Mal aga, Messina and Palermo ami some from Florida. The Florida crop was larger than last year, and grades not quite so good as the Palermo lemon. The Malaga lemons come to this country In January and Feb ruary. The Messina comes freely in March and ApriL At that time lemons are cheaper than at any otner season of the year, and heavy dealers buy largely and cold storage enables them to keep the stock for the sum mer rise. The Palermo lemons follow very closely upon the Messina, anil it is the Pal ermo lemons that are now rounding up the imports for the season. The Florida crop winds up the year. A great many people do not know that there is any difference in lemons, and yet tlie Mossina lemon is almost as round as a bull mid nearly as smooth, having a better Haver and more juice in it than the other grailo.s. Tho Malaga ranks second, is almost ovoid and rougher, while the Palermo lemon is much rougher and longer than the Messina und it ana tho Florida lemon haw a trace of bitter iu tlie juice, the meat is more porous and not as juicy. Lemons are packed in boxes made from beech lumber shipped from Maine to tho lemon growing districts, and 340 to 300 lemons are packed iu a box, but the finest grades of lemons are never brought to this market. Tho loss in handling is said to average 20 per cent for the year, but at this season, where boxes have to be repacked two or three times, the loss will reach 30 per cent. Jane, July, August aud Septem ber, are the months when the demand is most active. The three largest jobbers in lemons in this city are J. S. Collins, Kavaimugh & Brennan and W. 1). Sirakins & Cos. Lemons are retailed in nearly all the groceries, but the bulk of the retailing is done by Italian venders in the streets aud market, one Italian alone retailing seven boxes on Saturday last. GEORGIA FOR SHERMAN. Col. John H. Deveaux Tells How tho Georgia Delegation Stands. Col. J. H. Deveaux, one of the two col ored delegates from the First congressional district to the Chicago convention, is get ting ready to leave to-morrow night. He will join the greater part of the state dele gation that goes froip Atlanta on Sunday. Deveaux in speaking of the situation yes terday, pretty generally covered the field of national and congressional republican possi bilities. He ha* been advix'ating the nomi nation of Sherman, and he believes that tho entire delegation is for Sherman. He does not doubt Sherman’s nomination, nor does tho delegation, and as it could not think of any contingency likely to arise that will defeat his nomina tion, it has no second choice. The south. Col. Deveaux said, will be practically solid for Sherman, because ho has always stood by the southern republicans, and having long been in public life Sherman is tlie best known among the republicans of tho south. Tlie Sherman sentiment is very strong in South Carolina and about half the Florida delegation is for him. The Georgia delegation’s headquarters at Chicago will be tne Palmer house. Bv common consent Col. A. E. Buck of At lanta will he made chairman of the delega tion. W. A. Pledger of Athens, late chair man of the republican state committee, is being mentioned in connection with a place on the national committee from Geor gia, but Col. Deveaux expressed a confident opinion that F. F. Putney, a wealthy planter of Dougherty county, will be re elected. Col. Deveaux is one of the leaders of the republican party of Georgia. He was tem porary and jiornianent chairman of tlie lust state convention, and is at present a member of the state ex cutive committee. He is well posted in the party’s plans, being close in it< counsels. He will no doubt be appropriately reougninod in the national convention. In the course of his talk he read ex-Gov. Bullock out of tlie party. Gov. Bullock, he said, does not affiliate witli it; he has no right to speak for it, and can not lie elected delegate to a county eonveu tion. Alluding to the congressional convention, Col. Deveaux said that shortly after the ad journment of tho national convention, L. M. Pk'usan’s, chairman of the republican congressional committee of this district, will call a meeting in Savannah to fix the time and place for holding a republican con gressional convention to nominate a candi date for congress, and that there will be no difficulty in securing a candidate. He has a choice, but is not prepared to express it now. THE GEORGIA PHARMACISTS. The Meeting of the Htute Association —Arranging the Programme. President G. D. Case of Milledgevillo and Secretary H. R. Slack, Jr., of LaGrango, are arranging the programme for the meet ing of the Georgia pharmaceutical associa tion. They have secured the hall of the house of representatives for the place of meeting. The association meets July 10, and will lie one of tho most important ever held. A pleasant programme has been arranged, which will lie announced later. Among the important matters to be consid ered will lie the establishment of a school of pharmacy in connection with tho school of technology, amendments to the pharmacy law, etc. One of t o attractions of the meeting will be the pharmacists’ excursion to the great Piedmont Chautauqua, which will then bein full blast. The state board of pharmaceutical examiners will also be iu session at that time. Flret Georgia Battalion Inspection. Tne adjutant general of Georgia has de tailed the following ofticors of the Savan nah Volunteer Guards battalion; Lieuts George T. Cunn, W. W. Rogers and T. D. Rockwell, as inspecting officers to make the annual inspection of tho First Colored bat talion of Georgia, and the inspection will toko place to-night, at Chatham light infan try hall, at Uwuiuott and Montgomery street* THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 18S8. THE COUNTY COMMISHIONBRS. They Dlscub3 Many Matters at the Juno Meeting. The June meoting of the county commis mis ionera was held yesterday, with Messrs. Walker, Lawton and Estill present. The usual monthly roports were read and sun dry petitions for aid to tho county poor were referred to proper committees tor action. A petition was road from the Savannah street and rural resort railway company for permission to extend its tracks on Estill avenue from Habersham street westward to Montgomery street to enable the com pany to complete its belt line. Granted. The contract for repairing the hammocks in tho jail was awarded to W. B. Mell & Cos. at #1 50 each. A communication was received from Col. G, iS. Owens, chairman of the executive committee of the board of road commis sioners, asking that tho county commis sioners fix tho salary of the secretary of tho board of road commissioners. It was read, and an annual salary of $25 vas ordered paid. The county commissioners also passed an order to pay tho expenses of ad vertising the semi-annual meeting of the commissioners, provided the board is not üble to meet the expenses from the fines and forfeitures. The committee on roads and bridges was authorized to hire carts, etc., to rebuild the causeway on the Louisville road between the eight und nine mile post,and the county engineer was instructed to inspect and re port the condition of two brie k culverts in that vicinity reported to be in bad condi tion. Cant. James 11. Johnston, president, of the City and Suburban railway, notified the board that the conductors on out-ide Hues have been instructed to carry free of charge, the chief of the chain-gang and the guards on all the trains, and to pass free on the order of the chief of the chain-gang all guards and prisoners to and from the camps. An application of the county treasurer for anew safo for his office was referred to Chairman Walker to secure estimates as to co-t. The county engineer notfied the commis sioners that the trunk of Musgrovo creek lias been repaired, and it wiil now enable the chain-gang to work on the west side of the city and complete their work of drain age in that section. The county engineer’s report for May was rend. It show's that Hesser’s gang sums up 1,199 working days (1,118 men and 81 women), which were disposed of as follows: 139 days’ work in camp: 51 days lost on ac count of sickness; 27 days’ water carriers, and 993 days’ work on tho Vale Royal canal; l,2oofeet of this canal wicre completed in May. A delay In getting lumber, ordered April 15, is reported to have delayed the work, but it is thought it will bo obtained without much further delay. Shuman's gang sums up 2,147 days’ work as follows: White men 98, colored men 1,713, colored women 333. Tho number of work days is accounted for as follows: Camp work 27(1 days, garden work 134 days, lost on account of sickness 113, and canal work 1,534 days. At least one-third of the working force of the canal work is composed of boys and women, who can only do such light work as pitching earth back from the linos ami removing brush from the right of way. The Hampstead canal was finished in May from station 40 to 83, a distance of 4,200 feet. Eight hundred foot of this work averaged 4 feet deep, slope 1% feet to 1 foot and 8 feet at bottom, the balance of 8,400 feet averaging 4j <j feet deep, usual slope aud 6 feet at bottom, making 9,000 cubic yards of digging which credits each day’s work, men, boys and women, with 5% cubic yards per day. Tlie communication of the mayor, dated May iit, was read and reported to the com mittee on drainage with power to act. It reported that the health officer claims that the drains and ditches between Estill avenue aud tho City and Suburban railway are foul, and that the water supply at the jail is not sufficient to carry off the fcacal water. The engineer who reviewed the letter admitted the correctness of the reports. The ditches leading from Estill avenue were dug about two years ago and have had no attention since. The cattle roaming over them and the natural filling iu washed from adjoining Helds has obstructed the passage of the water flow. He recom mended an additional culveri farther east. The ditches along the City and Suburban railway were dug about one year ago, and owing to the boggy and slushy condition of the land, it was impossible to have the ditch sides hold up, as the soft mud had filled in as fast as taken out. It has since dried out so that it could bo properly drained, nnd sufficient fall at both places could be had to secure good drainage. The defects complained of in the mayor’s letter, the engineer says, can be removed with a gang of t wenty men working about thirty days. That part south of the city, the en gineer thinks, can tie properly drained only by a proper canal In place of the plantation ditch on tho Deßenno place, and he says that even the 1 the inroads of cattle, so de structive to the ditches, will require eon slant attention nnd repairs. He further re ported that tho water supply at the jail i< inadequate, because the architect in his estimates and specifications fell short in this particular. He reported, how ever, that upon the authority of the chair man of the jail committee he has given the entire contract and plumbing work, to romedy tho defects, to John Nicolson, Jr., at a cost not to exceed $350. That part of tho engineer’s report with reference to ditching and culvert repairs was referred to the committee on chain gang. Messrs. Lawton and Estill were appointed a committee to sell tho unsold lots of the old jail site on Whitaker and Hall streets. Accounts to tho amount of $10,512 08 were passed for payment. The county engineer was directed to get up estimates for enlarging and rebuilding the flue of the engine room of the new jail and making the room fire-proof. IN JAIL FOR MURDER.

The Lindenstruth Watch Case -Mrs. Weisbein Gets $1,103 Homestead. Tho Superior court was in session yester day and will convene again this morning at 10 o’clock. In the Lindenstruth watch case counsel arrested the verdict of the jury by asking leave to discontinue the suit, which was granted while the jury was out. Tho charge of the court was to the effect that a verdict should be brought in for defendant, Abrams’ title being good as far as tlie amount paid Mublberg, and a tender of that amount with interest should have been made to Abrams by plaintiff. The suit, if continued, will be brought in another form. A compromise was effected in the Wois bein homestead case. Creditors appealed from the decision of the Ordinary’s court granting Rebecca C. Weisbein a homestead of $1,600. Appellants took tho case to the Superior court, where compromise was effected, Mrs. Weisbein taking a homestead of $l,lOO, appellants paying all costs. Can't Go to Ty£ee. Savannah, Ga., Juno 13.—Since the ehangiug of the schedule of the Tybeo train from 6:30 o’clock to 5:40 o’clock p. m., the clerks, and hundreds of others, are deprived of the pleasure of going down and spending a few hours at Tybee in the evening, ns tho clerks don’t got olf until 0:30 o’clock city time, and the train which they would go on leaves at 0:10 o'clock city time, which is only fourteen minutes difference, whereas, if the schedule was only twenty-live min utes later, it would give tho clerks, and hundreds of others, time to go down after their day’s work. Furthermore, it would pay the hotels at Tybee to arrange with the authorities of the road to change the schedule of tho 5:40 o’clock p. m. train a little later, as those who go down on that train would leave the city too early for supper, and would arrive at Tybee at tho right I line for that meal, and would also give them a couple of hours to enjoy tho fresh air and surf bathing.

Closing Scenes of the Big Baptist Cele bration. The African Baptist centennial closed last night. Yesterday’s exercises were of an in teresting character. In the morning Rev. Henry Jackson of Augusta read a paper on “The Purity and Work of the Church.” Ho said that in order to have a pure church the members should not be members of anything else. The preacher created quite a sensa tion when ho remarked that secret societies antagonize the church, and that those who are connected with secret societies can not servo God. He denounced Masonry as being the mother of all secret societies and lienee the greatest enemy to the Christian church. Other societies suffered violence at tbe preacher's haud. Most of Ins hearers were members of some secret organization or another. The acceptance of the paper may be.st be imagiued. Rev. Dr. J. H Kilpatrick (white) of White Plains, Ga., delivered an interesting discourse on "Christian Baptism.” Here viewed all tho arguments against baptism, and iu the opinion of his hearers fully answered thorn. He urged that since pedo- Bapt.ists wore put to such terrible straits to maintain their position, it showed that truth is on the Baptists’ side. Tho address was well received. In tbe afternoon Dr. Kilpatrick delivered an able sermon on “No Royal Road to Church Prosperity.” He started out by saying that “Every lover of Christ must desire tho prosperity of his churches.” Dis cussing the best way for the churches to prosper, he urged simple obedience to the word of God. Tho way to secure true pros perity of tho church of God. he said, is to present the truth of the Bible faithfully, simplvand earnestly, and pray, believingly that God may bless it to whom it is preached. This, he said, is tho scriptural plan. He urged that evangelists and revival preach ers could not atone lor the neglect, sacrifice, prayers and work of the church. He urgod a return to the old way, the scriptural way as the best and safest way of promoting the prosperity of the church. This was u feast of good things to the con gregation. After this resolutions thanking the citizens of Savannah, the railroads, Ludden & Bates and Miiler & Cos. for favors were passed. Rev. W. J. White, chairman of the cen tennial committee, made a very touching speecli thanking the brethren for considera tions shown him, and thanking God for the great success that has crowned the labors of the Baptists of Georgia in the celebra tion. The congregation then joined in singing “Blest bo the lie that binds our hearts in Christian love,” and took the parting hand, and amid tears and much rejoicing, told each other good-by, never to meet again on a similar occasion. The benediction was pronounced by Rev. J. C. Bryan, president of the Missionary Baptist convention of Georgia. It is a little remarkable that a Ilryan commenced the century and a Bryan closed it. These exercises closed the largest celebra tion over known among the colored people in this country. Alabama, Florida, Ten nessee, South Carolina and Pennsylvania, were represented in the celebration. The delegates left last night, many of them, and others will leave this morning. Before adjourning, yesterday afternoon, the centennial committee had its photo graph taken. The old wooden chair, which was furnished by Rev. Alexander Harris, and the crayon bust of Rev. Andrew Bryan, founder of the African Baptist church of Georgia, were also photographed, and as many of the delegates as were able, procured photographs. The tabernacle building will be sold complete as it now stands. The committee will receive bids on it. Rev. Alexander Harris is business man ager, and will wind the centennial’s affairs up as quickly as possible. OOL. FRY’S NEW ROAD. What Its Projector Says About Its Being Built. A telegram in the Mo km no News yes terday announced that work would com mence on Wednesday. In an interview at Atlanta, Tuesday, Col. George T. Fry said in regard to the Atlanta, Atlantic and Great Western railroad: “Work will commence to-day on the new line to Savannah, and in time the road will bo finished. Col. Pryor will push the sur vey as rapidly as possible.” ‘’ How long will it take him to completo it!" “Oh, that’s hard to tell. He will make the route to Eastman first, and—” “And when will you begin throwing dirt?” “Just as soon as Col. Pryor can submit his estimates.” “How long will that require?” “Oh, by the first of the month.” “And then you will be throwing dirt in July?” ‘•Certainly In August, may be July. We are under bond to t>e at work by Septem ber, and we will be. I leave to-night for New York.” “What for?” “To place on sale the bonds. I will be gone ten days or two weeks, and when 1 get back we will advertise for bids for the work.” “Have you any idea when you will be ready for trains?” “None, further than to say that the work will be pushed just as fast as men and money can do it.” ON KAIL AND OROSSTIB.

On July 24, 25 and 26, according to a circular just issued by the Southern pas senger association, excursions will be given from all points in Tennessee, North Caro lina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi to points in Arkansas, Texas, Missouri and Kansas. Col. George T. Fry, president of the Atlanta, Atlantic and Great Western rail road, addressed a large meeting at Conyers yesterday. Col. Fry appears to be in dead earnest about his great railroad project, which is to connect the two mos important cities of the state by a direct line. Savnn nuh can count on having 100,(XX) inhabi tants by 1898, if this road is built bv the time Coi. Fry says it will be, and Atlanta will have a seaport. Several very important railroad meet ings wifi be held iu a few days which will be of much interest to the south and south ern roads. Among the most important arc the meetings of the general freight agents of the south at Atlanta, Ga., on next Mon day, June 17; of the rate committee of the Southern railway and steamship associa tion, in Atlanta, next Wednesday, June 20; and the meeting of the Southern passenger agents association, at Virginia Beach, Nor folk, Vu., on next Saturday, June 10.
