TO GREET THE IMG WEST, BAVANNAH'S WELCOME TO THE WESTERN TRADE KINGS. Business Men in Favor of a Celebra tion in Honor of the Opening of Through Railway Connection Be tween Savannah and Kansas City— What the Merchants Say About It— The Railroads Interested and Ready to Boom the Movement. The suggestion by the Morning News ©f a celebration in honor of the through railway connection between Savannah, Kansas City and the northwest, meets ■with general favor, and it seems to be very generally agreed that in the spring an effort will be made to get the merchants of Kansas City and the north west, as well ns representative men from Memphis and Birmingham to visit Savan nah, where they can see for themselves the city and its splendid facilities for the trans portation of freight. IN FAVOR OF THE CELEBRATION. Mr. F. IX Bloodworth, president of tho cotton exchange, said yesterday that the suggestion of the Morning News is a good one, and one that should and will receive the hearty gunport of the business men of Savannah. Me thinks, however, that for the next two months the business men will bo too much occupied with their own af fairs to give the matter the attention it de serves, nut tho t after the busy season is over the movement can be taken in hand and successfully carried out. He thinks it advisable to wait until spring and then per fect arrangements for a reception which x\ ill be commensurate with the importance of the event celebrated, and show the people of the northwest that Savannah offers unrivalled facilities for the movement of freights, and that bor people are as hos pitable as they are enterprising. Ho sug gested that Feb. 22 would boa conveuient date for the proposed celebration. CELEBRATE BY ALL MEANS. Mr. John R. Young, president of the board of trade, said that the suggestion is a good one, and should bo carried out, as he has no doubt it will be, but he thinks it should not bo attempted during the busy season of the cotton factors and grocers. "While he is willing to lend it a helping band at any time, he thinks it better to Jiavo the celebration at a time when all the Inisine-s men can unite to make it a suc cess, and he * liinks that February or March would suit tlie Bay meu better than to at tempt it in their busy season. Mr. H. M. Comer of H. M. Comer & Cos. thinks that Savannah should not lose any opportunity to present her advantages to the growing northwest. Ho favors a cele bration in t[e spring, at a time when the rush of business is over, and when the cele bration can be sucbessfully carried out to the best advantage. A present tho cotton trade is at its bight and Bay men have their bands full. TO BRING WESTERN MEN HERE. Capt. John Flannery of J. Flannery & Cos., cotton factors, enters heartily into the suggestion of a celebration. He says that be is iu favor of bringing the people of tho northwest to Savannah, so that they can Fee for themselves what the town is. Ha suggests Feb. 22, Washington’s birthday, as tt patriotic ami suitable time for Savannah to put on a holiday dress, and invite the representative men of Kansas City and the northwest to come to Savannah and have tbe freedom of the qity, get acquainted with her people, and learn what advantages Bavannah has as a shipping point for tne products of the north west. Mr. C. Menelas, cotton exporter, is very enthusiastic on the subject. He wants to invite the people of tho northwest to come and see Savannah, and he says tho more the people from abroad see of Savannah the more they will like it. Mistaken ideas, he thinks, are held by some people north of the southern section which will disappear Upon closer acquaintance. There is not a more patriotic people in tbe country, Mr. Menelas said, than tbe people of the south. The charges of party administration are accopted as readily south as north. SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE FOR. The south is industriously striving to ad vance its material interists by the develop ment of 1 ts l ndnstrial ai id mercantile t rnsi ness as much as the north, and the increasing Investment of northern capital in the south is doing much to harmonize the two sec tions. What Savannah wants is to lot the northwest know what advantages she has for the movement of their products, aud what kind of people are engaged in busi ness here. This can be done by inviting the business men to Bavannah and extending to them the ungrudging hospitality for which Bavannah is noted. He thinks that the proposed celebration should not be lost Sight of, but that it should bo had in the •spring, at a timo wheu it would enlist the active support of all the business men of the city. AN IMPORTANT EVENT. Mr. Edward Karow, of the cotton ex porting house of Strauss & Cos. and vice consul of Austria-Hungary, says that so important an event as the linking of tho south and the northwest should be appro priately celebrated by the representative business men of this city. He favors the movement, and, while not suggesting a date, thinks it should be fixed for a time when Its success would be beyond question. Mr. P. D. Daffln said that there is no doubt that the suggestion of inviting the business men along tiie lino from Savannah to Kansas City will meet with general favor and the. warm support of the busi ness men of Bavannah. SAVANNAH WILL WELCOME THEM. A hearty reception awaits them, and Bavannah will not be slow to show them that she realizes the importance of tho closer railway connections brought about by the Central railroad. Mr. Dartiu thinks that the proposed celebration should be de ferred until the early spring, so that the business men of the city will have the leisure to make it successful in every par ticular. Alderman H. Myers of 11. Myers & Bros., and president of the National Bank of Bavannah, says that it is just the thing, and he wants to see It made a big success. To insure this, he thinks that it should not be attempted earlier"than in February. A TRIP TO THE SEA. Not only does Mr. Myers want to give the northwestern visitors a hearty reception in the city, but he wants to see the occasion made a gala day, with a trip down the river and out iu the broad ocean l>y one of the magnificent steamers of the Ocean Steamship Company, and bis only regret is that it will be too soon to give tho visitors a ride on tho new steamer Kansas City, recently contracted for. Mr. Myers favors an ocean regatta, a visit to Tybee bland and a rousing good cheer for the visitors all round. He will lend every assistance to make tho occasion a pleasant one, and the advantages of the port will bo set forth no more abiy than by the enter prising president of tho new T} bee Hotel Company. MAJ. BELKNAP APPROVES IT. General Manager Belknap, of the Central railroad, was seen last night, and he was very enthusiastic over the matter. He said: “1 noticed the suggestion in the Morning News that the people of Bavannah celebrate the opening of the new line to Birmingham, Memphis and Kansas City by inviting 'the merchants of those places to visit us. It is a good suggestion. I heartily approve of the project, and think it a good " ay to call attention to Savannah'S prosper ous condition. I remomlwr that soma years ago, when the Cincinnati Southern road Vtas opened for traffic, the. merchants of all the prominent southern cities were invited to Cincinnati; tho freedom of the city and a magnificent banquet was tendered them, anfi certainly was of great benefit to the Queen City. . Til* CENTRAL WILL TAKE A HAND. . y u ,, ,n ®.V My that the Central will Cueei fully Uo her share in making the Jour ney of the visitors a pleasant one. We will extend them the courtesy of our lines and do all we cm to facilitate the eood work.” “What date would you suggest as.tho time for thorn to come?” Maj. Belknap was asked. “Well, 1 believe Bavannah shows 'O hot ter advantage about April,” Maj. Belknap replied, “but that is a long time off. Feb ruary would boa good month, I should think. Businei-s is quite lively then, aid wo want to impress upon our visitors not so much the beauty of Savannah as her commercial importance. This excursion cannot fail to bo of great mutual benefit by e tabiishing not only closer bu-iness rela tion f, but st rong personal friendships among the business men of Savannah and tho west.” NOTHING TO HINDER. Mr. Moses J. Solomons expressed him* If very heartily in favor of inviting tho busi ness men of Kansas City and intermediate cities here. He thought there would not be the slightest difficulty in the way of getting up a celebration, and it would be the means of at once establishing close business rela tions betweon the merchants of the cities on the line. He said that ho is not only ready to contribute toward tho expenses incident to the occasion, but to take au uctive part in getting up the celebration. Maj. G. A. Whitehead, gen ral freight agent of tho Central railroad, said that he thought a celebration in honor of tho open ing up of tho through line to Kansas City after the busy season is over would boa step in tbe rignt direction. BIG BUSINESS IN THE WEST. Maj. Whitehead said that the business of the Central railroad for this season is very heavy. The business in the west has in crea-ed t> such an extent that it necessi tated tho appointment of an agent at Kan sas City to look after tho road’s in terests. Heretofore the road’s representative there has been jointly connected with other western lines, but recently the enormous in crease in business titers requires all tho at tention that one man can give to it. Henry J. Hargrove, formerly of the A,rmour Packing Company, lias received tho ap pointment, and assumed the duties of his office yesterday. NEW BUSINESS FOR SAVANNAH. The opening up of the line, Maj. White head said, has resulted advantageously, not only to the Central railroad but to Bavan nah. Tho opening up of the line to Birm ingham places Bavannah in direct commu nication with the west. At Birmingham tiie Central railroad gets the transportation of most, of the coal and iron products of that section. Tho Central also makes con nection there with the Kansas City, Memphis and Birmingham road, which hauls all the cotton from Memphis, and also that of the Mississippi bottoms. This line transports a largo bulk of the provisions of the packing houses of tho west, aud the enormous yields of grain. Most of tho grain, however, that is being brought over the lino now is for local consumption. UNABLE TO GET RATES YET. There has been no export grain shipped by the route to Bavannah yet, for the rea son that tbe road has bean unable to secure proper rates of tonnage for exportation. In order to bring the export.grain via Sa vannah instead of New York, as low rates of tonnage as Now York has must be had. Maj. Whitehead thought that the company will have no trouble in getting the proper rates of tonnage, since it is manifest that grain can he exported from the west via Bavannah quicker, and, once it is started, cheaper than by any other route. He said that there w ill bo no exportation of wheat by this route, as the exporting sea son is about over, but by the time corn is ready to export, which is tho latter part of December or January, ho thought that they would be able to handle it largely. WHO WILL IT BE? The Democratic Clubs and the May oralty Plum. “Who will the clubs support for mayor?” is a question that is exciting a good deal of curiosity just now. The Fourth District Democratic Club, which was organized Monday night, has not yet decided whom it will support. Mr. M. M. Sullivan, president of the club, said last night that no names were discussed in connection with the mayoralty at Monday night’s meeting. Speaking of Maj. Schwarz, Mr. Sullivan said: “As an individual I entertain the highest esteem of the good acts of Maj. Schwarz during his term of office.” The liquor dealers, it is claimed, will support Maj. Schwarz. The Chatham Democratic Club, the Young Men’s Demo cratic Club and the West End Club, it is understood, are not yet committed to any candidate. The Savannah, Florida and Western Railway Club will be organized this week, and it is- claimed by Mr. Ham ilton’s friends that if he consents to make the race that he will carry the rail road vote solid. The First District Demo cratic Club will be organized to-morrow night, and it w ill doubtless announce its candidate at once. The Old Folks' Concert. An old folks concert will be given at Masonic hall Friday evening at 8 o’clock. Prof. Beardslee and his friends have been working hard to make the affair a success and will no doubt succeed. Prof. Loon’s orchestra will accompany the choruses. “ Worldlye songe swill ho sunge by Mistress Katrina vou Taffel and Efter Bmithsrs, also songos of ye olden tyme by J. 8., clcrke of 3’e parishe, and by St. William, ye King’s falconer. All vo participants will appeare in costumes and with merry notes salute ye eare.” Lost Overboard. The steamer Seminole arrived Monday night from Beaufort and Port Royal. She reports tho loss of the cook, Isadora Adams (colored), who went overboard on the re turn trip from Port Royal. Adams was drinking when he went aboard the boat at Port Royal, and it is supposed that he was suffering from the effects of his drinking when he walked overboard about Bailey’s Point. He was employed as cook aboard the Seminole, and was a native of Savau nah. He was about 28 years of age. Noteß Along the Wharves. The schooner Carrie E. Woodburry was cleared yesterday by Messrs. Joseph A. Roberts & Cos. for Guantanamo, Cuba, with 9,061 pieces pilch pine lumber, measur ing 231,058 feet, valued at $4,560, and 19 packages of general merchandise, valued at S9O. Tne total valuation of cargo was $•4,050. Cargo by Messrs. Charles Ureen's Bou & Cos. The Youths at Debate. Tho Youths’ Historical Society will give an entertainment at Masonic Hall this even ing. Tho subjoct for debate is; Retn!vert. That imprisonment for life, as a punishment for murder, is likely to he more effectual as a prevention of crime and a terror to criminals than capital punishment. The Weather.

THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 18S8. THANKSGIVING DAY SERVICES. The Ministers’ Association Urges a General Observance of the Day. The Bavannah Ministers’ Association has arranged for a union Thanksgiving service at the Lutheran church on Thanksgiving day. Rev. A. F. DeCamp, of the Inde pendent Presbyterian church, will preach the Thanksgiving sermon. The congrega tions of tho First PreshyteriaD, Lutheran, Wesley Monumental, Duffy Street, First Baptist, New Houston Street, Anderson Street, Trinity and Independent Presbyte rian churches will unite in the service. The following resolutions were adopted by the association at its last meeting. Whereas, Our authorities, national, sta'e and municipal, in accordance with long estab lished precedent, have set apart Thursday, the 29tn day of November, as a day of thanssgiv ing. and have visited and requested nfl religious people to assemble in their respective places of worshipand engage iu appropriate religious services* and, Whereas, It seem* eminently proper that botli t iie spirit and letter of these proclamations should be regarded with becoming respect anil consideration, aud far more important that tbe services they propose should be begun and con ducted in such a manner, and in such a frame of mind, as at once to faithfully express the heartfelt gratitude of a favored people, and prove acceptable to him who “seeketii such to worship him ’ us worship “in spirit and in truth; ' and Whereas, It has been the custom of some of our business men to keep open their offices and places of business on Thanksgiving day till the hour for assembling lias passed, thus prevent ing a large portion of onr peopio from attend ing the services and suitably responding to the call to worship, while with others there has seemed to be a growing indifference to these most opportune services, as is witnessed by the diminished attendance; and Whereas, Our city lias especial reason to return thanks to Almighty God, in that it has been graciously delivered from the dread pesti lence, therefore be it Resolved, That tbe ministers’ association would respectfully request all business men to close their places of business on the morning of the 29th inst. early enough to enable all those who may feel inclined to do so to engage iu tho Thanksgiving services at 11 o’clock. Resolved, That we cordially invite all our people to assemble at the places of worship which mav be designated, that they may unitedly offer thanksgiving and praise to the merciful and loving Father of us all. G. E. MATTHEWS' CAREER. The Fast Life That He Led in Sa vannah. The news of tho suicide of George E. Matthows in yesterday’s Morning News revived rocolleotions of Matthews’ career in this city. Matthows did a very prosper ous business at the comer of Randolph and South Broad streets, having bought out Forrell, and not Terrell, as stated yester day. Ha was of a convivial and sporting disposition, aud many a dog and cock fight, known only to the friends of such sports, occurred at his stables, lie had a wife and two children, but ho was not a domestic man, and marital infelicity did not tend to make him any more domestic in his habits. It was this which led to his family troubles, and his relations with the Gol dizer woman, which led to the arrest of the pair upon the complaint of Matthews’ wlfo. It appears that he had sent hor home to Philadelphia, and she returned unex pectedly to learn of her husband's doubtful relations with the woman. Their arrest followed. Joseph Cosman, a South Broad street saloonkeeper, went the woman’s bond, and Henry Moeller went on the bond of Matthews. Shortly after a truce was patched up between Matthews and his wife, and it was mutually understood that further proceed ings wpre to be stopped, but to the surprise of the wife and the bondsmen, Matthews and the Goldizer woman suddenly disap peared. They were last heard of "iq New Orleans, and from there it was thought they had gone to Texas. His whereabouts were unknown until the news of his suicide was published yesterday. The elopement occurred about two years ago. Shortly after Mrs. Matthews with her two children returned to Philadelphia, and it is not be lieved here that any reconciliation was effected between herself and her husband. COTTON MEN IN A WRANGLE. P. M. Dougan has D. Y. and R. R. Dancy Arrested for Assault and Battery. H. H. Smith, D. Y. Dancy and R. R. Dancy were arrested yesterday for a breach of the peace upon warrants sworn out in Justice Russell’s court by P. M. Dougan, Mr. Dougan also prosecuted the two Dancys for assault and battery. They wore arrested and gave bond for their appearance in the city court. The arrest grew out of a personal encoun ter in front of the cotton exchange on Moo day, in which it is alleged that the Dancys assaulted Mr. Dougan. A charge of fraud, made by Mr. Dougan against D. Y. Dancy before the board of directors of the cotton exchange, was the immediate cause of the trouble. Mr. Smith had fifteen bales of “overs” to sell, and it is said that be sent samples of the cotton to Mr. D. Y. Dancy to sell for him. Mr. Dougan is an exporter,and he bought the fifteen bales, among other cotton, from Mr. Dancy. Mr. Wells, Mr. Dougan’s shipper, it was stated, discovered that the cotton was “mixed packed.” Mr. Duugan was no tified, and he preferred charges against Mr. Dancy before the cotton exchange. Sept, Merrihew, under instructions from the pres ident, notified Messrs. Dancy and Dougan to name a day on which to appear Lei Ire tho board of directors. The Messrs. Dancy were together in front of the cotton exchange Monday after noon, where they met Mr. Dougau. Mr. R. R. Dancy hold an open letter from the superintendent in his hand and asked Mr. Dougan if he had preferred charges as the letter stated. Mr. Dougan replied that he had, and Mr. Dancy dealt him a sting ing blow in the face. Before any more blows were passed friends interposed, and the men wore separated. In the affidavit upon which tho warrants were issued Mr. D >ugan charges Mr. D. Y. Dancy with striking him from behind. THE MARTIN FUND. The United Press Contribution Foots Up $37 50.

CATHOLIC LIBRARY HALL. The Euildinar to be Ready for the Fair Dec. 3 and to be Finished Jan. 1. Work is being pushed forward rapidly on the Catholic library hall with a view to having the second floor ready for the fair, which is to begin Monday night, Dec. 3, and continue for one week. This fair is for the purpose of raising funds to aid in meet ing the expense incurred in remodeling the building which, with the furniture required for furnishing, will cost, approximately, #15,000. The society, finding it=elf con fronted with a probable deficit of #5,000, hit upon the fair as the readiest way to meet the demands upon it. Ground ivas broken July 1, but the work has bien delayed by rains and by the con tractor throwing up his contract two months ago, which was very embarrassing to the building committee, but the work was not long delayed, as Mr. William Bowen, who was superintending the work, took charge, and under his management it is being pushed vigorously, and the committee hope to have the edifice completed by Jan. 1, and the hall ready for the fair. The exterior of the building is of the Gothic style of architecture, with two deep windows of stained glass, imported, reach ing from midway of the upper floor nearly to the bottom of the first floor, with three double windows lighting up the stairways to the hall, and a double gable window to light the balcony loft. The interior is being finished in hard wood, and the rooms on the first floor are to bo elegantly fitted up and furnished. The main double door is to be used for an en trance to the first floor. The first door to the right opens into the reading room, which is connected by folding doors with the library. The first room on the left is to be used by the St. Patrick’s Total Absti nence Society for their meetings, and this room also connects by folding doors with a sitting room in the rear. These four rooms, which are about 25x30 feet, will be lighted by double chandeliers, or pendants, with four burners. In the east end of the build ing is the billiard room, running across the building from Perry to McDonough street, and is 30x47 feet. It is to be handsomely fitted up and finished in hard wood. Swing ing leatherette doors in the hall will shut off observation from the front. The gymnasium hall up-stairs is being elegantly finished. The ceiling is dome shaped, and of yellow pine with cypress and chestnut moulding, all of which is to be oil finish, and from floor to dome the ceil ing is 25 feet high, and 19 feet from floor to side beams. The circular segment, from which a 30-light chandelier depends, is of hard wood, containing 150 pieces, anil fluted somi-circular ventilators are on the eastern and western sides of the segment. The hall is provided with a stage 23 feet in front and 24 feet deep, with side rooms and balcony loft. The stage is in the eastern part of the building, and a gallery, pat terned after that in the Guards’ armory, runs across the western front of the build ing. The hall is 75 feet 6 inches deep by 47 feet wide, and will accommodate GOO peo ple and the gallery 120 more. The floors in the hall are to be double, with intermediate layer of resin-sized paper, the floor proper being of hard wood, sandpapered and shel laced. At the head of the stairways are ladies’ and gents’ toilet rooms and cloak rooms, with small lockers for the gymnasts. The gymnasium outfit will be very costly. Sixteen iron hooks run through from the ceiling of the hall to the roof, and are bolted to all the timbers from roof to ceil ing, making the gymnastic apparatus thor oughly secure. When furnished it will be the most complete gymnasium in the south, New Orleans only excepted. Access to and egress from the gymnasium hall will be by the Perry and McDonough street doors, which flank the Drayton street door. The stairways are 6 feet wide, and are two in number. The Catholic Library Association num bers about 140 members, and the society has accumulated about 2.500 volumes in its library, which it hopes to increase to 8,500 volumes shortly after moving into its new quarters.
