The central pi a/a on Liberty street, from Houston to East Broad street, has lioen en closed by a railing to prevent teams from crossing and cows from grazing ou it. There is hardly a blade of gross left there. At the ends of the plat movable rails are placed, so that a tree passage can be readily made for parades ou festival days. James Perkins, the colored boy who was supposed to have tieen drowned Sunday af ternoon in the river opposite the Market dock, has not yet been found.

President Alexander’s Company Seems to Have the Inside Track. The City Council was in session yester day considering bids for the asphalt paving of Liberty, Barnard and Broughton streets. The members were non-committal as to the result of their action further than that they would meet again to-day. It has leaked out. however, that the matter was appar ently settled yesterday by an understand ing that the Vulcanite asphalt pavement will be adopted provided that some security can he given as to its durability. As (ieii. Alexander, as trustoo, made the bid, it is thought there will be no trouble about the guarantee. The engineer at Washington estimates the annualrcost for repairs at less than 3 cents per square yard for fourteen years, and to cost only $1 05 to resurface. The company guarantees to keep it iu re pair for five years. If the Vulcanite asphalt is used it is thought the B>j inch pavement will be adopted. The bids for this is $2 55 per square yard. THE NEW HOTEL. What Its Cash Value Will Be When It ie Completed. The drawings representing the Bull street front and the perspective of the new hotel now on exhibition at Tlieus' jewelry store are attracting the attention of everybody, and the general verdict is, that tne hotel' if it is like the pictures, w ill be one of Sa vannah's greatest attractions. It is thought that the property, including two lots, will represent *400,000 in cash when completed. If the figures w-ere made as they are in other place* on similar pub lic enterprises, the cost of the hotel would be placed at 11,000,000, but Savannah has not yet forgotten George Washington and bis little hatchet.

William Clifton, Esq., left for Sylvania last night to attend, as counsel for Winnie A Brynnt, her preliminary examination thereon the warrants alleging “assault with intent to murder” R. R. Williams on- April 21, and "larceny after trust,” and “simple larceny," alleged to have been committed June 5. The action of Williams, coupled with the charge she makes against him, has kindled great interest in the case, and Solictor Gen eral dußignon communicated with the Scriven county authorities in the matter. Williams arrested the woman here without a warrant, and he was the prosecutor. Finding that, ho was about to get in trouble he left the city, and the mayor discharged the woman the following morning. The warrant for assault w'as taken out April 25, and Williams, the prosecutor, ar rested the woman u Scriven county, as she alleges, and took hei to his home. After the trouble here Williams sent down the warrant to Detective Wetherhorn, but the date of the warrant had been changed from April 25 to June 12, making the date of its issuance six days later than the warrants on the larceny charges. It looked suspicious to the officers here that if the assault was committed April 25, Williams should trust the woman to come to Savannah to buy goods for him, and give her *5 75, whon the price of her passage both ways would nearly reach that sum. But as he had come on tho Thursday before and tried to persuade her to go back and live at his house, and she had re fused, the warrants looked liken persecution of the woman. It is held to be illegal for a prosecuting witness to serve a warrant, and the manner in which he acted here in ar resting the woman and then going off without any explanation caused those fumiliar with tho facts to look with aome suspicion upon t,lie charges. Warrants will ho served on Williams to-day, and he will be brought back to Savannah to answer for his connection with tho affair on the Sun day wildcat the point of the pistol, he dragged Winnie Davis from the house on Lumber street, where she had taken refuge. Mr. Clifton is in possession of all the facts, and lias gone on to defend the woman and see that all her rights are pro tected. Her preliminary examination will not take place before the magistrate who issued tho warrant for assault, whom Mr. Clifton will use ns a witness. SWEET GIRL GRADUATES. Ed L. Brown's “Komikalitlea” Takes Well With the Country Cousins. William Clifton, Esq., who attended the commencement exercises of Prof. It. Q. Spencer's school at Klomington, Liberty county, last Friday night, gave a Morning News reporter a very pleasing account of the exorcises, and lie says that Maj. John Schwarz has reason to be proud of his daughter Theda and his son John, Jr., as the former took a prize mid the latter received honorable men tion. Mrs. Georgia Cossets was highly pleased with her two daughters, each of whom carried off first prizes. The prizos were awarded by Prof. Morgan of Taylor’s Creek in neat speeches. The essays and declamations were meritorious. At the close of the exercises Ed L. Brown enter tained tho audience with some of Ins pro voking “komikalities.” Saturday night Mr. Brown gave a two and a half hour entertainment at the Battle institute, and pooplo came from all direc tions to hoar him, crowding the hall to its utmost capacity. Capt. Battle introduced Mr. Brown, who kept the audience in a roar all the time. His parody on "Poo’s Raven” brought down the house, THE MAGGIE BELLE LAUNCHED. The New Steamer for the A. P. & L. R. R. Christened. The hull of the now steamboat which has been in course of construction at Kinsey's mill across the river for Capt. W. T. Gib son and tho Amerious, Preston and Lump kill railroad, was successfully launched yesterday. An attempt was made to launch the ves sel Saturday at high water, but in the effort to haul her off the stocks by the tug Maud a hawser was broken and the launching was postponed until yesterday. All the preparations had been made in tile morning, and exactly at 2:55 o’clock in the afternoon the blocks were knocked from under the vessel and the hull glided off the stays without, a single hitch. As her bow struck the water, Mr. William Farr broke the usual bottle of champagne over the how, christening the new boat Maggie Belle in honor of tho daughter of Capt. J. N. Bass, superintendent of the Americas, Preston aud Lumpkin railroad. The boat was very light, and floated on tho waters ot the Savannah, lior new homo, like a thing of life. Shortly after the launching she was taken in tow by the Forest City, and was towed to the wharf of the Central cotton press, where her machinery, which is all reudv, will be taken aboard immediately. The new boat will bo ready for business in about thirty days, and will bo the pioneer of tne line between this city and the Altamaha, connecting at Gray’s landing or Abbeville with the hoatsof the Amerious, Preston and Lumpkin railroad as a feeder. Capt. Gibson and the railroad company contcmplato building a couple more boats of her size should she prove a success. BLAZE IN A PICKER ROOM. Tho Firemen Called Out Twice by a Little Fire. At 11:45 o’clock yesterday morning an alarm of fire was turned in from box No. 18, at the corner of Wilson and Walker streets, and Engine Companies Nos. 2,3 and 4 responded. The fire was located in tho picker room of the Arkwright cotton factory. A stream was turned on the blaze and tin fire was quickly quenched. The firemen returned, leaving Chief Fer nandez at the factory. They had not more than reached their quarters when a second alarm was sounded from the same box. The men responded again ami found the cotton in the picker room burning. After some little extra work they put the fire out. The fire is supposed to have originated from a s(irk from the machinery. The factory was in full blast when the alarm was sounded and some of the factory girls were frightened until they found it was not tho main building that wns on tiro. About a bale of lint cotton was burned. The loss is not over #55. RACERS IN THE REGATTA. Bome of the Fast Sailers at Thunder bolt To-Morrow.

THE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY. JULY 3, 1888. A LIVELY STREET FIGHT. How a Broker's "Cock and Bull Story’’ Loet Him a Friend. J. S. Collins, fruit and produce dsaler, and Sam Platsliek, broker, do not differ in material essentials in interviews with a Morning News reporter as to the causes which led up to their difficulty on Bryan street yesterday, in which Mr. Collins re ceived a slight abrasion on the nasal organ arid Mr. Platshek had a diminutive rose bud planted on his forehead between the eyes. The war began with an umbrella and ended with bare knuckles, and just as Collins had Platshek’sneck in chancery,and I Kigali to do some short-arm work with his right, Mr. W. P. Bailey separated the com batants in answer to Platshek’s call for someone to come and part them. Mr. Collins says that Platshek struck the first blow with an umbrella. Mr. Platshek says Collins struck the first blow with an open umbrella and points to a depression tn his hat. The umbrella was, at any rate, the aggressor. The origin of the trouble was a division in the Equitable loan and building associa tion. Mr. Collins wanted to oust the pres ent president, C. P. Miller, and managed to got 1213 proxies. This coming’to the ears of the other faction they began to buy stock to stem the tide. Collins, as a friend of Platshek, gave the latter a pointer. Plat shek in his zeal went to Mr. Hudson, a friend of the Collins faction, and as Plat shek himself says, “told a cock and bull story, hr all brokers do” preparatory to see ing if he would sell his stock. Collins says that Platshek offered a directorship to Hud son, and claiming that he owned five shares of stock, began to talk about not want ing Collins and his side to conduct the affairs of the association. This came to Collins’ ear and he became very indig nant. He visited Platsliek’s office but the broker wasn’t in. Yesterday ho met him on the street and called him to account for it. Platshek says Collins wouldn’t hear any explanation.and both agree that Collins said to Platshek that if the latter used Collins’ name again lie, Collins, would get a cowhide and cowhide turn. Platshek says he told Collins, "I am ready for you now.” Col lins’statement is that Platsliek said, “I will fix for you, ttien,” and then Collins started for Platshek before hecouid get fixed. After the trouble was over Platshek went up to Collins, and grasping his hand, regretted thfl occurrence, and wanted to make friends. It was a one-sided shako. He has since said that he will have nothing further to do with the association squabble. He admitted that it was only a “broker’s story” of his owning any of the stock. No arrests were made. THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY. Recording Secretary West Resigns- New Members Elected. The Georgia historical society held its June meeting last night. The attendance was small. Col. John Screven presided in the absence of Gen. Jackson. Several new members were elected, amoDg them Revs. Allen F. de Camp of the Independent Pres byterian church, and T. H. Blenusf of the Christian church. There was considerable surprise when the resignation of Recording Secretary C. N. West was read. Mr. West stated in Ids let ter that pressing professional duties ren dered it imiKissible for him to devote the at tention to the secretary’s affairs that the office requires. Oapt. Robert Falligant moved, in view of the fact that Mr. West has beon one of the society’s most active and efficient offi cers, that a committee of three bo appointed to wait upon him and request the with drawal of his resignation. The motion was carried and the committee was appointed, to consist of Capt. Falligant and Messrs. W. D. Harden and W. S. Bogart. The American philosophical society has boon notified of the appointment of Gen. A. li. Lawton as representative from the his torical society to the international congress for the adoption of an universal language. Gen. Lawton has also been notified of bis appointment, and has accepted. The librarian’s report recommending the purchase of soveral volumes of interesting Works for July was adopted. Quite a num ber of contributions to the library were received. THE Y. M. C. A. RECEPTION. The Social Nights Successfully Inau gurated. The first of the social receptions in charge of the reception committee ot the associa tion was given last night. The parlors were crowded with young men at an early hour, aud each participant in the exercises was loudly encored. The following was the pro gramme: Piano selections. E. F. Cunningham Bong A. L. Faria Guitar i. E. King Reading —H. T. Mnore Song B. H.

It is the intention of the reception committee to have a similar reception every Mon day night and invite all the members and young men interested in the association. The athletic grounds are being put in good condition, and the association will soon start lawn tennis and cricket. Young men wishing to join either are requested to confer with the secretary. The board of directors will meet to-night at 8 o’clock. KEEPING HI3 CAR COOL. Capt. Fleming’s Private Car to be Cooled by the Ammonia Process. “What about the report that you aro going to try the now cold storage process in your private car,” a Morning News re porter asked Capt. R. G. Fleming, superin tendent of the Savannah, Florida and Western, yesterday. The superintendent said that he is in eor re-pondenco with H. I. Kimball of Atlanta with a view to making the experiment. It is, he suid, an old thing uewly applied. In Atlanta a store of three or four stories is kept at a low temperature by the process. It is nothing but ammonia stored in pipes, and when the warm air strikes the pipes the ammonia crystallizes on the outer sur face and the temperature is lowered. There is no reason, Capt, Fleming thinks, why the process cannot be applied to railroad cars, so that the doors of a car may be closed to exclude the dust in the summer and the car be made cool and pleasant. If the experiment is suc cessful i apt. Fleming expects it to he adopted on all sleepers ami first-class passen ger coaches. Keeping the Market Clean. A novel, but none the loss feasible, plan has been adopted to keep the market house clean. As the imperfect sewerage system oanuot lie reinediol until the new sewer is built next winter, the market is to have base boards added to hold the water for thorough cleansing from the hydrants two or three times a week, and the base boards at either the Bryan or Congress street open ings can be removed and the water be per mitted to (low into the sowers without anv connection wftb the basement and its inef fective sewer, ibis temporary plan will be sure to keep the market building in good sanitary condition.

BAD NANCY KINNEY. A Vicious Assault upon One of Her Neighbors Lands Her in Jail. There was considerable excitement last night, about 7 o’clock, in Jones street lane, three door* from Habersham street, over the vicious assault of Nancy Kinney, a negro who is ths torrnr of that locality, upon Capt. H. Y. Right-on, baggage master of the Savannah, Florida and Western railway. The lane gate of Capt. Righton’s yard opens out near the door of the cabin occupied by the Kinney woman. I .ait night Capt. Righton’sson Willie complained that Nancy’s son Henry had struck him with a stick in the square, on Habersham and Taylor streets. As this was not the first complaint Willie had made to liis father of tho negro boys assaults upon him, Capt. Righton went to the door of Nancv’s house to report the matter, and to tell her she should punish her son, and if the assaults were repeated lie would take out a warrant for him. The mother began a tor rent of abuse, and the boy, aged 14, became verv impudent. Capt. Righton told him to hush and started to push him in the house so he could reason with the mother, when the woman rushed in, and coming out with a club struck viciously at Capt. Righton’s head. He threw up his left arm and caught the blows on his shoulder. Willie, seeing the peril of bis father, ran into the vard and got an ax and put it in his father’s hand. This was near the door, and Capt. Righton, with the uplifted ax, advanced on the woman until lie drove her into the house, slamming the door violently against the ax, which split the panel. Thinking the woman would trouble him no more, Capt. Righton started home, but the vixen threw open the door and advanced on the captain again, crying out to her son Henry to bring trio pistol out of the house so she could shoot him. Meantime a boy had been sent for a policeman, and within a few minutes four mounted police wore there and Nancy was taken to the barracks. She was notified by her landlord a week ago that she must leave the house owing to the disturbances she and her boy created. Nancy couldn’t keep her tongue on the way to the barracks, but gloried in the assault she had made on Capt. Righton. The latter said to a Morning News re porter last night that he had not the re motest idea of a difficulty when ho went to see Nancy about her son's assault. He said he kept a pistol in his house, and if ho had thought that she would have assaulted him in this manner, he certainly would not have gone unarmed. The lane was impassable from the crowd that blocked it up while the officers were waiting for the woman to put on hor “Sunday clothos” to go to the bar racks. Capt. Righton will have a warrant issued for assault with intent to murder. ON RAIL AND CROSSTIE. Local and General Gossip In Railway Ciro Jes. A remarkable feat in locomotive con struction was performed at the Baldwin locomotive works a few days ago, an en tire locomotive, weighing 110,000 pounds having been built and turned out of the shops ready for me in five minutes less than seventeen hours. Norway, with an area more than twice that of the great state of Illinois, and more than that of Illinois and New England com bined, has only 970 iniles of railway, and from an official report it appoars that no road was built during the year of ISB7, and that none is in course of construction. The little state of ConfiocTicut, with about one twenty-fifth of “the area of Norway, has more railway thanthat ancient country. Time table JTp. 8 has been issued by the Central railroad of Georgia for its Colum bus and Western division. It went into effect The now schedule gives Birmingham a through passenger t rain both ways every day, and one through freight daily. Of course the number of trains will tie increased largely as soon as the company fets into proper shape to make the change. he trains aro all numbered. The odd num bers go toward Birmingham, and the even numbers toward Columbus. One of the French railways has inaug urated a service of “light trains” which has proved quite successful. These trains, which carry passengers without baggage, are composed of one or two corridor car riages (instead of the ordinary compart ment plan) without a brake van, drawn by a miniature locomotive. There are but two employes—a driver and a conductor— ou the train, which stops at stations, level crossings, or any intermediate point on the journey and is thus emphatically an accom modation train. Traffic must be light on a railway that can carry on such service. A remark by a conductor to a passenger, who had taken a wrong train by his own fault, that the tram would uot stop at the point, the passenger wished to go to, but that, by taking a rear car, ha could get off at a station beyond and thence return to his destination,—Held: not such a command or direction to pass from one car to another as justified tho passenger in doing so at the risk of the railroad company. When a railroad passenger goes from one car to another of a rapidly moving train merely for his own convenience he takes upon liimsolf the risks of all accidents not arising from any negligence of the company. Ho held the supreme court of Massachusetts in a recent case. Anew schedule will go into effect on the Tybee railroad Thursday. Train No. 1, now leav.ng Tybee at 7 a. m., will leave at 6 a. m.. Standard time. This change is made to accommodate the large and in creasing travel to Tvbos by the Central railroad, affording pa-songeis an opportu nity to leave their homes, spend a night at Tybee and get in the city in time to make connection with the Central's 7:10 a. m. train going west. The Central will next Sunday inaugurate special excursions from Augusta to Tybee, loaving Augusta early Sunday morning and arriving at Tybee at about 11 o'clock and loaving Tybee at 6:45 p. in., arriving at Savannah at 7:35 uud Augusta 6:15 Monday morning with no change of cart between Augusta and Ty boe. The Augustiaus for this pleasure will only havo to pay $1 25 forthe round trip. The K. of L. Picnic. The addition to the trains heretofore ad vertised for tho Fourth of July picnic of the Knights of Labor bore, wifi be one from the city at 12 m. It is expected that 1 the largest number of people ever on Tybee at one time will be there on the Fourth, and from tho arrangements made the picnic promises to bo one ot the events ot tho season. Only Two for the Drainage Camps. The quarterly term of the city court convened yesterday.

Mr. Editor: It is with a feeling of pleas ure aid gratification that 1 read an article in the Guyton Chronicle, entitled a “Word in Time,” in which the Hon. Philip M. Russell of Chatham is named for Senator of the First Senatorial district. I hope that he will receive the unanimous nomination for that high position, in each of the counties that comprise the district. As for the choice of Bryan county, I feel satisfied that no one could have been pro posed in tho said article as a candidate whoso name would be hailed with m ire de light then that of Mr. Russell. Bryan county is not ungrateful. Weil does she re member how, in times past, Mr. Russell gave way for the claims of the county, and udvoentod the election of one of her son* to represent the First district in the senate and she is glad that the time has come at last when sue can, and most assuredly will, show her appreciation of the man, whose many services and noble qualit.es as a citi ren and public servant have endeared him to the voters of the First district . Like Effingham, so w.ll Bryan, and I trust also Cuatnam, declare unanimously for Mr. Russell as the candidate for .Senator at the approaching Senatorial convention. Buyan County Votkr. BAKING POWDER.

An aged gentleman, while strolling on Broughton street yesterday, came within an ace of meeting with a serious accident. The city, in making repairs on sewers, had failed to properly protect pedestrians by placing guard rails around the openings. The old gentleman, failing to observe the excava tion, fell in feet foremost, lauding on the points of the workman’s pick, which had been carelessly left. Ha l it not been for the solid shoes he wore, and had purchased from A. S. Cohen, Broughton street, he might have been seriously injured, ana would have had good grounds on which to sue the city. Advice to Mothers Mbs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup should always be used when children are cutting teeth. It relieves the little sufferer at once; it produces natural, quiet sleep by relieving the child from pain, and the little cherub awakes as “bright as a button.” It is very pleasant to taste. It soothes the child, soft ens the gums, aiiays all pain, relieves wind, regulates the bowels, and is the best known remedy for diarrhoea, whether arising from teething or other causes.

This information is not exclusive or from inspi ration. Trade is pretty well as far as it goes—but it doesu’t go far. The purchasing power of a dollar now is something surpris ing, simply because there are more doliars 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 wo have added to our stock in various ways, new ideas, new con ceits, new ti icks and quips in jewelry, and so on. We’ve got to keep up', you know, with the strides of inve-itivo and artistic excellence. Our stock is worth looking over, and, as intimated, wo will sett very close to move some of it. This is a good tiaie to renew household articles. Solid Silver table ware, superb plated ware, ornamental goods. For personal use or adornment we offer a line pur 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.
