LESTER TO TAKE TIME. HE IS OFFICIALLY NOTIFIED OF HIS NOMINATION. The Committee Urges His Accept ance—Col. Lester Sayß That He Will Consider the Matter—He is Flooded With Congratulations and Assur ances of a Unanimous Support. The Chatham congressional delegation and the Savannah contingent returned yesterday from Brunswick. Col. George A. Mercer, chairman of the committee to ■otify Col. Lester of his nomination, waited on him last night and presented the nomi nee with an official notification. Col. Lester was seen later by a Morning Niws reporter, and he said that he has not yet formulated his reply. He will consider the matter and will give it his early atten tion. He was engaged yesterday in a case In the city court, and was the recipient of congratulations on every haud. Before the adjournment of court he returned to bis law office, where friends continued to drop in until a late hour, congratulating him upon his nomination and urging him to ac cept it. William Clifton, Esq., who was one of the 100 Savannabians at Brunswick, called, and in tendering his congratulations took occasion to tell Col. lister that his nomina tion is heartily indorsed by the country delegations, with whom he is very popular. With the official notification of his nomi nation lying on the desk before him, Col. Lester said that it was something that he had not a-pired to and did not want. Too much is expected of a congressman, he said. He spoke very seriously when he said that he was afraid that much more will bo ex pected of him than any man could hope to secure for his constituency. It is some time, however, before the congressman elected this year will be called to Washing ton, he remarked, and by that time great changes may take place. It is too early now, he said, to outline the future in the event of his acceptance and election. SCHOOL BOYS AT THEIR BEST. Closing Exercises of Crowtber’s School for Boys. The annual commencement exercises of Maj. Crowther’s school for boys were held at the Masonic temple last night. The boys and their friends were out in full force. On the platform were S. B. Adams, Esq., Maj. Crowther, principal, and Mr. C. A. L. Mas sie, assistant, and the following scholars, who took part is* the exercises and delaimed as follows: Mercer Frierson—“Music in the Camp.'' Henry LsFar—“The Schoolboy's Complaint." James L. Kankin, Jr.—' The Combat.” Clifford Rowland—“ The Nantucket Skipper.” Julian Chisholm—“ The Leper.” Frank Cavanaugh—"business in Mississippi." George Freeman—‘Tarrhasius and the Cap tive." J. Me. Flannery—“The Ghost of an Old Con tinental." Sevan Sullivan—“ College Oil Cans.” Paschal Strong—“ The Song of the Shirt.” Louis tVarflela—“The Emancipation of Man.” At the close of the exercises, Major Crowther announced the names of the graduates as follows: George Owens Haskell and Henry A. Htults, to both of whom he gave diplomas. Certificates of scholarship, with an average of ‘JO and 95, were presented to James L. Rankin, Paschal Strong. Henry A. Stults, George Hat ell, Louis Warfield, Charles Hasked, Robbie Butler, Me. Flannery, George Free man, and Clinton Lyon. Certificates of deportment were given to George Freeman, Me. Flannery, Richard Lester, Clinton Lyon, Paschal Strong, and Charles Haskell. The medals for the best scholarship in each class were presented by B. B. Adams, Esq. Before formally presenting the medals Mr. Adams made a brief re ereuce to the com petition and to the getting of a medal as amounting to nothing in itself, if, after all, a boy comes short of the true purpose of life, which he held was to do one’s duty re gardless of the reward. He deprecated the spirit of rivalry in its commonly accepted term as pernicious, whether in the school or in tiie business world. The true purpose of life, tiie speaker said, is not to get ahead, but to do one’s duty, and if while working in the path of duty the prizes anti medals of life coine, then good anti well, but they should not be considered the be-all and end-all of life. The chief good, he added, in medals, is that the award frequently acts as a stimulus to greater effort in cultivating the power of attentiveness, without which, he said, no great intellectual success is pos sible. The following scholars were then pre sented with medals: Scholarship, George Freeman; first class, George Haskell: third class, Charles Haskell; fourth class, Charles P. Rowland: Latin medal, Louis Warfield; drawing, Paschal Btrong; fourth class (arithmetic) Herman Shuptrine. Master Mercer Friarson, who won a medal last year, but was prevented by Sickness from oeing present on that occa sion to receive it, had the pleasure of re ceiving it last night.

Tho friend who was with Baylers at the time the latter was arrested, was in tele graphic communication yesterday with par ties in Florence wit h a view to some kind of settlement, and it was reported last night that he had gone to South Carolina to bring about an adjustment of affair*.

TROUBLE AMONG THE SHOTS. The Chatham Gun Club Kicks Against the National Gun Association. The Forest City gun club was notified a few days ago that the badge which the Chatbams won from them some time ago had been returned to the secretary of the National gun association, and also announc ing the resignation of several members of t' at club. The secretary, in his letter, stated that the Chatham gun club had be come dissatisfied with the rulings of the National gun association and was unwilling to remain longer a member of the associa tion. The rulings referred to were those barring professional shots. The members of the Chathams that resigned were the principals in corttesting the shoot at Milieu when the Forest Cityswon the badge. They claimed that tho Forest City* had members who were professional shots. The mutter was referred to the President of the National gun assoc atjon and the ruling was that no man, whethor he sells game or not, is classed a pn fessional shot unless he visits tourna ment' and makes a livelihood in that way. The secretary stated in his letter that the badge would revert to the Forest City club as tee original winners, and it would be for warded them shortly. •Six members of the Chatbams have re signed. They assigned as a reason for ten dering their resignations that the rulings of the National association relating to profes sional shots wore altogether unsatisfactory, and besides there is a good deal of expense at tached to ameuibersnipin the association. At each contest tho association receives fti for the use of the badge, and this amount is oftentimes made up from private purses, the receipts for the shoots being inadequate. “The Forest Cilys will accept the badge returned by the association,” said Dr. E. J. Kieffer, president of the Forest City*, “and will receive challenges from any club in the association, barring none.” Mr. W. G. Cooper, president of the Chat ham gun club, said that six or eight members of the club had withdrawn, as signing as a reason their dissatisfaction with the rulings of the national association. Mr. Cooper said that there is a rule incor porated in the constitution providing that where two members in good standing de cide that any member of tho association is a professional shot, that member will be barred from shooting. He said that two members of the Chathams had made such a charge against more than one member of the association, but their charges were not considered, and the men wero not barred. Mr. Cooper also said that the Chathams are greatly dis satisfied with the expense attached to con tests for the medai. At each contest the association requires an entrance fee of SO, and many times, when tiie entrance is light, the members liavo to make up the amount by private contributions. He thought the upshot of tho whole thing will be an organization of a southern associa tion. The Augusta club is in favor of such a move, and the Forest Citys will verv likely join them. If the move meets with favor from all the clubs south, the organi zation will be perfected within the coming few months. HURRYING TO THE RESORTS. Savannahians Packing Their Trunks for the Mountains. “They are leaving rapidly now." “Where are they going?” “Everywhere. Some go to Warm Springs, Gainesville, Mt. Airy, Tallulah falls and Clarksville. Some go to Ashville, N. C., but the greater number of Savan nahians seeking summer resorts go this sea son to the Virginia springs.” This is what a Bull street ticket agent said yesterday about the summer exodus, which is now in full blast. He had just sold a party of thirteen tickets to Virginia. The summer travel has ushored in most auspiciously, and if the stream of people that is going out of the city now grows in tho next two weeks in proportion to its growth in the past two wee!U, there will be a rush. Tho sale of tickets to the summer resort* began June 1, and the increase in travel since then has been very great. “When July comes,” said the agent, “it will find very few who are able to leave that have not already gone.” Everybody that is able to go, goes. Savannah people probably indulge tho luxury of spending the hot ■pell at the resorts more than tho people of any other city in the state, l.ast season the majority of Savannahians who went to any one place went to Ash ville, N. C. This season the}’ are going to the Virginia Springs. Although the springs are farther away and are reached six hours later, yet the rush seems to be in that direc tion. The difference in the fare between the two places is SB. A party leaving here at noon will roach Ashville early the fol lowing morning, and Virginia Springs is not reached until night. “Tne change of air and the surroundings seems to be the main object with the pleas ure seeker. You rarely find one that goes to the same resort two successive seasons. They want tho change.” “Tallulah fulls will be popular as a sum mer resort this season. Already a number of prominent families from Savannah aro there. A party leaving here early in the morning w ill arrive at Tallulah the' follow ing morning.” “We sell a great many tickets to Warm Springs, Ga., also. The travel thero will not boas great, though, us to Tallulah falls. The parties leaving now will not return before tho middle of Keptomlior or first of October. Three niontlis cover the time they usually spend away from home. A good many people go north, too, but the northern travel is not as heavy now as it will be next mouth, when the rush to Sara toga and the White mountains will begin. A good many Savannahians go north for the summer, but they do not usually go be fore along in July.” LADIES DAY AT THUNDERBOLT. The Cabin Yacht Regatta to Take Place To-day. To-day Trill be a gala day at Thunderbolt, lieiug Ladies day, in which the regatta of the Savannah yacht club, over a short course, with the ladies on board the yachts, will druw a select assemblage of the friouds of the club to Thunderbolt. Tho entries will not close until noon to day, but it is understood that all the popular yachts will enter, among which may be mentioned theOconn Queen, Zinga, Thistle, Wanderer, Glance and Waterberry. The yachts will start at 4 o’clock and the course will bo scant eight nautical miles, being from the Savannah yacht club house to a stake boat olf Herb river and back twice in succession. Tho prizes are silver cups. A string band has boon engaged, and dancing will bn numbered among the attractions. It will lie a bountiful moonlight night to night at Thunderbolt, and after the yachts cross the line tho evening ill be given up to terpslchorean festivities. Those who attend will havo the choice of a quick return by rail or a carnage ride by moou light by the shell road. The Ladies day regatta to-day will be a pretty prelude to the more exciting re gatta on tlie Fourth of July, in which the entries will most likely be numerous and the race well contested. The Columbus Exposition. F. B. Gordon, Esq., secretary and treas urer of the Chattahoochee Valley exposition company, is In the city in the interest of that enterprise. The exposition will be held In Columbus and opeus on Oct. 4 and closes on Oct. 12. The site selected is most admirably adapted for the purpose, and that and the well-known energy of the peo ple of Columbus is a guarantee that the ex position will be a complete success Mr. Gordon sjieaks most enthusiastically in re gard to the enterprise, and expect) Savan nah, which has always been very close to Columbus in business affairs, to’ extend u liberal help. THE MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 1888. THE OLDEST ENGINEER. A Locomotive Driver Who Sat on the Footboard Fifty Years Ao. H. C. Haworth of Aiken, S. C., was men tioned in the Morning News a day or two ago as the oldest locomotive engineer in the United States. The News and Courier has written some very interesting sketches of him. Mr. Raworth is 77 years old. He is still hale and hearty, and only three years ago was obliged to retire from the service of the South Carolina railway by reason of impaired eyesight. He began life on the railway 1n’1829 as an apprentice in the “shops” in Charleston. Hois, therefore, a reminiscer.ee of the pnlawzoic age of rail ways. He was there when Ctie “Stowbridge Lion” came over from England, and the “Best Friend” with the wooden spokes to the driving-wheel, and the up and down sugar-loaf boiler. The engine then had no cowcatcher. There was no engine then that could keep up with, much less catch a cow or a calf on a mile stretch up or down grade. Mr. Raworth took charge of an engine in 1834, and until a comparatively recent date has been on the road continuously. He recalled with much pleasure the circumstance that he “pulled” John C. Calhoun to a big Nullification meeting in Charleston, and that the great statesman stopped to refresh himself at Woodstock, a picturesque old ruin about iifteen miles from Charleston. It usually took about ten hours to make the trip to Branehville during that period, and some times the train, when it left Charleston, would not be heard from again for a week. They did not have any second sections, ex cursion trains, green signals and ail that sort of thing when they were learning the alphabet of steam locomotion. The trestles were built on stilts, and when the engine got off the track all hands got out and lifted it up tenderly and replaced it. The second section never went out until the first section came back, because if it had not come back there couiu not have been any second sec tion. Railroad Clatter. Boston capitalists are negotiating for the purchase of the charter of the Chattanooga and Augusta railroad, and if they succeed in their efforts it will mean the immediate building of the road. The finishing touches were put on Presi dent Alexander’s new car at the Macon shops yesterday. The car is a beauty in the way of comfort and elegance. It is proba bly the most elaborate and costly ever built in the shops. The pig iron shipments from Birmingham are increasing all the time. When the Columbus and Western is opened for traffic the pig iron trade will move in another direction. The Central railroad and the Ocean steamship company are making ex tensive arrangements for handling big ship ments. A Pittsburg (Pa.) inventor has just in vented a safe freight car coupler, winch, on being tried, is pronounced by railroad men to be a model coupling. The coupling is so arranged that the cars always couple whon they moot, and are uncoupled Ly means of a lever from either side or on top of the car*. At no time is a brakeinau requires! to go between the cars to uncouple them. The railroad commission appointed by the Georgia legislature has reported the value of the Western and Atlantic railroad as it stands to be leas than $0,000,000. It is contended that a road as goo 1 as the state road can be built from Atlanta to Chatta nooga, runuing parallel to it, for $4,000,000. It is also estimated that a road thirteen miles shorter, equally as good, and with only two bridges across. Chicamauga creek, can be built for $500,000 less. The value of the Western and Atlantic road has always been estimated at $8,000,000, and as tfie present twenty years lease of the road ex pires next year the report of the commis sion is of considerable importance to the lessees. THE NEW ICE COMPANY. Over $20,000 Subscribed—The Com pany to Organize Next Week. The Savannah ice and cold storage com pany held a meeting in Odd Fellows’ hall last night and adjourned without taking any action until next Tuesday night. There were about twenty-five members present. Mr. Sigmund Elsinger presided. After a conference with T. P. Ravenel, Esq., Mr. Elsinger stated that it required the presence of five charter members to proceed to au organization, for which pur pose the meeting had been called, and as there wore but two charter members present to comply with the law there could be no organization of the company. Mr. Williams reported that Mr. Kol shorn’s paper represented $15,700 in sub scriptions, and that the Delavau machine company, which desired to furnish the ma chinery for the factory, lias signified its willinguoss to subscribe $5,000, which swelled the subscriptions to $20,700. Mr. Lugau said that he had about $2,500 conditional subscriptions, but the sub scriber wanted to know who was going to mauago the company before they put in their money. Fully two-thirds of the sub scribers wanted to know who would he the officers and board of managers, and they wanted to reserve the right to withdraw their subscriptions if the management was not satisfactory to them. Ho thought that if good men were selected there would be little trouble in securing subscriptions. Mr. Kolshorn said that he had been in communication with the Borgner <fe Engle brewing company, mid it was willing to take stock. The company is inteiestedin cheap ice in Savannah, but it wanted to know who were the officers and managers before investing iu the concern. Mr. Kol shorn thought there would bo no difficulty after organizing the company to get ample subscriptions. Mr. Williams moved that a committee of five be appointed to meet next Tuesday night anil report names for a president, secretary, manager and board of directors for the company. Mr. Collins opposed the motion. He favored awaiting the outcome between the two companies now in the field, and offered an amendment that the meeting, without taking any further action, should adjourn until next Tuesday night at 8:30 o’clock. The amendment was carried and the meet ing adjourned. BAD FOR DEBT COLLECTORS. New Postal Regulations Which Are Not to He Trifled With. The new postofliee regulations will be a severe blow to tho Chicago method for collecting bud debts. For some time past frequent complaints have been made regarding toat erode of conducting business. The Postmaster General has sent out anew rule, containing the following, which aims at open dun- sent through the mails: “Any postal card, or other mattor upon the eu velope or outside cover of which appears anything which reflects injuriously upon the jierson addressed, or anyone else, or upon his character or conduct, or is plainly calculated and intonded to injure his feel ings or reputation, or bring him into dis credit, or which threatens him, will bo ex cluded. Anything in the nature of an offen sive or threatening dun apparent upon an envoi ]', outsi e cover or postal card, or conveying the suggestion that such dun is inclosed, will be excluded os non-mailable under this act.” The law makes the mer chant creditor who reaches his debtor in this way a party to the misdemeanor of the agency, and equally liable to fine aud imprisonment Graceful forms, abundant treseos, Sparkling eyes our praise iuviUt, But a blemish that distresses And the loveliest face will blights— Teeth uncleanly and unheeded; SoZODONT for such Is needed. Parties that have not yet purchased their seasonable suit of Clothes or Hat, will find courteous atieutiou and honest dealing, at Apjiel A Pet' nil's. One Price Clotulers. SIFTINGS OF CITY NEWS.

The Best Time to Buy Valuables. This is the dull season of the year. This information is not exclusive or from inspi ration. Trade is pretty well as far as it goes—but it doesn’t go far. The purchasing power of a dollar now is something surpris ing, simply because there are more dollars than trade. In a word, we are now inclined to give a very large dollar’s worth for 100 cents just to keep things moving. Within the past few months we have added to our stock in various wavs, new ideas, new con ceits, new tricks and quips in jewelry, and so on. We’ve got to keep up, you know, with the strides of inventive and. artistic excellence. Our stock is worth looking over, and, as intimated, we will sell very close to move some of it. This is a good time to renew household articles. Solid Silver table ware, superb plated ware, ornamental goods. For personal use or adornment we offer a line par excellence of Ladies’ fine Gold, Silver and Diamond Jewelry, Ladies’ Watches, Chains and Charms, Gent’s Watches and Jewelry, etc. All of these articles can be bought cheaper now than when trade gets brisker. Some body will get married next fall—buy the presents you intend to give now. They will keep, and you will save money. M. Sternberg, 157 Broughton street.
