THE VOTE FIGURED UP THE CITY REGISTRATION BE TWEEN 3,800 AND 3,900. It Exceeds the Total County Resrlstra tion by 634—A Count of the Regis tered Vote by Dtetricts-Sunday with the Campaign Managers-What the Bchwarz Men are Claiming—The Atti tude of the Liquor Dealers—The Polls to be Closely Watched To morrow—Arrangement* for the Elec tion. A compilation of the city registration shows the remarkable total of-. Nil, of which 8,168 are whites anti 668 are colored. Notwithstanding the heated contest for county offices the entire ro-iistration of the city and county last fail fell short of the pre cut city registration by 'l it. A well posted gentleman said last night that the registered colored vote in the Fourth district al tie is equal to the entire colored vote of the city, that is of those colored persons who have paid all taxes since 1878. The following is the registration by dis tricts. First District—white Mi Colored 2nS- Second District- White STS Colored 101— CIO Third District—White KfJ Col rod.. HO— 000 Fourth District—White 1,114 Colored* i,M Grand total 3.831 not mr.K on run day. The fact that yesterday was Sunday did not prevent active political work, and it was principally don* by the .-'oiiwaiz met!, the Thomas men generally refraining from Sunday work The former are claiming everything with confidence, and are oseert ing that prominent business men on the Bay are for their candidate for mayor when the very men they are claiming are out ■sycken arid active for the regular demo cratic ticket. This is being done to influ ence others and convey the idea t at there is a great boom for Schwarz for mayor, and they claim the solid coiored vote, all the Germans and Hebrews, half the Irish and one third of the native vote, which they claim will give Schwarz B(XJ majority. The Thomas men, on the conti ary, say the regular democratic ticket will get 500 majority; that they have 2,100 voters who will vote, and that they are legal voters, and Mr. Thomas’ election Is sure. Tee Schwarz men have money flowing freely. Much of it has been spent in pay ing tares, and the saloons are reaping a harvest. Much more will have to tie used to-morrow to hold the colored auxiliary. THE LIQUOR DEALERS. They are circulating the roorback that if Mr. Thomas is elected the liquor license will be put up to SI,OOO, and on the strength of this industriously circulated yarn, tuey are claiming the solid votes of 300 liquor dealers, and the votes of 900 employes of liquor and •••tiers. A well-;cisted liquor dealer said last ni riit that Maj. Schwarz cannot get the votes of any such number of liquor dealers and em ployes. and that while the German and negro liquor dealers will vote for Schwarz, Thomas will get the votes of all tho rest. A \e y careful watch will be made for illegal votes, and arrest and prosecution will follow. It is expected that fully 300 illegal votes will bo kept out of the box by the vigilance which will characterize the work of the force of well-posted democrats who will be on duty about the polls. TO REVISE THE LISTS. The registration list will be carefully re vised to-da and to-night by committees of tha Democratic pat ty appointed for that purpose. Tho t ame) of those who have registered illegally will bo furnished to si ecial committees and detectives, and upon the first effort of any such parsons to vote arrest and prosecution will follow. This has been fully determined upon. The e*tim ite in the Mohniso News of yesterday, that the registration would reach 3,Tiki, was thought manifestly too much, and last night wiien the committee of the Democratic parts'having the scrutiny of the r- gistered list learned lhat over 3,SOU voters were registered, mire vigilant work at the polls was decided upon. The final arrangements lor to-morrow’s election will be completed today, the or ganization will bo perfected and, while there Ins no boa-ting, and exagger ated claim!, the democrats say that they will, as usual, carry tho olocfioii by nearly the usual ajority, as the conservative ele ment will support the regular democratic ticket heart ly, believing that the bout in terest if the city demand that Mr. Thomas tho Id le muyor. The Young Men’s Democratic Club has sent out the regular democratic tickets to all its members, and the solid vote of the club will bn an important factor in aiding in the election of the democratic ticket.

Gaul and Ann streets, by Anson Riley, a colored by of about the same age. The shooting is supposed to have been an acci dent. Riley had not been apprehended up to 2 o’clock this morning.

Eleven Jurors for Acquitted and One for the Conviction of W. P. Smith. W ?. Smith spent a quiet day in jail yesterday. Doubtless he is glad to be re lieved of the suspense during the long trial. There was considerable gossip over the failure of the jury to agree. It was stated at the time the jury was discharged it stood eight t) four in favor of acquittal, but it was learned later on that it first stood nine to three in favor of acquittal. When the jury was charged and retired, about 11 o’clock Friday night, a vote was taken in the jury room. It stood nine to three favoring acquittal. The three who d.sagreel were Joseph Siam ton, Thomas Hunter an l J. J. Carolan. Shortly alter midnight the two lest named went over to the nine who were m favor of acquittal, leaving M l . Mannion theonly juror for con viction. Al! of Saturday was taken up in discussing the can, but at oig.itfal! the vote stood the same way—eleveu for ac quittal ami o o for conviction. Mr Mannion hung ori the definition of justifiable homicide. He asked to be re charged and Judge Adams was sent lor. and the jury was re-charged. Justifiable h micide was made an e-pecial point of the charge. After the charge the ’dissenting juror raid that bo was satisfied that he was right in holding to the opinion he did and fl at he would stick to it, There was no change in the vote when the jury was dis charged yesterday morning by Judge Adams, and a mistrial was declared. The jurors were pretty well worn out yester day. THE •■YOUTHS" TO MERGE. The Youths' Historical Society and thu Hebrew Association.

TO HAVE A BREWERY. A Movement to Organize a Brewing Company in fcavannah. A movement is on foot to organize the Savannah Brewing Company, and quite a number of gentlemen are mentioned in con nection witn the enterprise, yrhicb, it is said, is likely to assume shape to-day. Some time ago Henry Winter, proprietor of the Philadelphia Brewi g Company’s brewery, came to Savannah, and for a whiie neg<> tinted for the Lamar mill as a location for u brewery. F r • m:e reason nothing came of it, and Mr. Winter re'orned north. The Philadelphia Brewing Company shipped a lot of it-> beer, wnicn is said to be Culm bacher boor, to Savannah, and rented a por tion of the cold - rag- warehouse of toe Artesian lon rj n--it,y. where it stored the beer. Later n q .ite a lot of the Phila delphia Brewing Company's machinery caino bv st > .or, i .1 by [iermission was given storage in tno Artesian Ice Compauj’s yard. The brewery in Philadelphia was seized by the sheriff, and wai to have been sold lost month, but wr en it was overhauled it was not found to let very valuable as a seiz ure, for, as has been seen, the stock and m tof the fixtures were in Savannah. The general tais n-v i. toat, the brewery is to be re-established, and in this city, with such men as Jacob Hauers, F. J. Ruckert, A. Minis and others back of it, under the name of the .Savannah Brewing Company. Mr. Winter is to be connected with the company as a praefi al br-wer of the Culm ba'-her beer, and the Artesian Ice Com pany's plant is to be secured as the site of tho new brewery. It is also rumored that th- Artesian Ice Company is to ba amalga mated with the Savannah Brewing Com pany and operated under the last named title. A Morning News saw Mr. S. P. Hamilton, preside it of the Artesian Ic Company, last night, but Mr. Hamilton did not confirm the report He admitted that Mr. Winter had, on his former visit to .Sa vannah, been negotiating with the Artesian Ice Company, but uo term?, he said, were agreed upon, ad sines Mr. Winter’s re turn the negotiations had not been renewed. Mr. Hamilton says that there will be no amalgamation, and the plant is not for rent; that the business of the company is very satisfactory, and that the rumor afloat that the machine has riot given satisfaction is unfounded. He says that he recently gave to the firm which manufactured and put up the plant a certificate that it gives the very best satisfaction. Mr. Hamilton said that tho Artesian Ice Company is very well satisfied with its property, considers it very valuable, is in no hurry to dispose of it, and does not go into the brewery business -at least he docs not want to do so. If the Savannah Brewing Company wa its to lease or buy the plant, tha' he says is another matter altogether, mid he supposes as money will do most anything, money could lease or buy the plant outright, hut he says it will take a good round price to either lease or purch as) it. It is learned that if the new brewerv Is established here it w 11 use the artesian water, as samples of .Savannah river water and Savannah artesian water were sent on to Philadelphia and used separately in the manufacture of beer, and that made from the artesian water was pronounced the best by experts, THE ORANGE MARKET FLAT. The Local Market Glutted and the Fruit Selling Cheap. “Heah dey is,” “I got ’em." “Sweet an’ juicy.” “Fresh an’ fine." “Only five fur fi’ cents.” This is what a short, stumpy little colored fellow shouts to everyone that passe* him. He is stationed at the corner of Congress and Barnard streets with a cotton basket “chuck” full of oranges. Less than three weeks ago the demand for oranges was a long way in excess of the supply, and the price ran up to $3 75 per box. During Christinas week people bougut what orangei they could and paid almost any price for them. Many were unable to get them at any price. They were not on tbo market. “It is a thing that rarely, if ever, happens in the south, and especially in Savannah,” said a produce dea or yester day. "Usiia'ly during the holidays the market is full of fruit, and oranges are in the lead. The demand for them never slackens during Christmas, and it really looked odd to see no oranges on the market this season. We cannot account for the limited supply. Our shippers were notified of tha condition ot the market, but from some cause tho fruit did rot couie. It may have been due to tho transportation. F r the past two weeks, however, the market has been glutted, and oranges are going begging, i (ranges that have been bringing as high as $2.50 per box are a drug on the market now at sl. One firm received 130 boxes a few days ago of as fine fruit as has been shipped to Savannah tins season, and tliev are going very slowly at ?1 tier box. The freight per b >x from Florida is (13 cents, besides 10 per cr t. commission, so that the shipper is getting little profit from shipping oranges to this point now. An orange grower was in the city last week, hut after malting a tour among the fruit inou he decided to hold what fruit he could until the market is better and ship the balance north. Work Progressing. For more than seven months work has been steadily progressing on the auditorium of Wesley Monumental church, until now. All the wood work is about finished and the building ready for plastering. So far its own congregation has struggle 1 on with only a little help from others, because they have not been asked. All our citizens of every denomination desire to see this church completed, which will be such an ornament to our etty, and a great inauy have declared their intention to aid in its completion, when they saw that the con gregation had really begun work and were earnest In their ell irts l > finish it. This is iow manifest, for it is re olvod to perse vere until it is completed. Its peculiar monumental character takes it out of tne category of ordinary church en terprizos, and warrants nn appeal to every citizen of Savannah, its immedi ate congregation, if ah! ■, would struggle on alone i:i the wok, but they have done nobly at great sacrifice and now they appeal to their fell iw citizens to aid th -rn with their accustomed 1 berality. 1 hough it has been frequently mentioned before, no personal call Ins he-it mul >. A committee of gu tlemen wiil so m c in vast for subscriptions, and a generous re-p-rns i came tly solic it'd,and in tt few ui'Uitlis we will open t > the public ..tie f the most beautiful and commodious buildings in the vt rv center of our population that can he found in any city.

SCHWARZ AS A FINANCIER A Point Which la Worth Considera tion by Voters. Savannah, Ga., Jan 13. Editor Morning News: There cannot be a property-owner within Savannah’s cor porate limits who has not a deep interest in the management of the city’s financos, s > tho burden of taxation may be mado a! light as possible. With this truism iu view, let us compare the two candidates for the may oralty. During Mr. Thomas’ six years of service as on alderman, he ha-- always been a mem ber of the finance committee of council, and no man in town is more familiar than he is with the monetary problems connected with tho city government, or i as done more to reduce taxation aud to give the people tho fullest benefit for the money collected from them. His busi ess record, no loss than his career iu council, attests his skill and knowledge rs a financier. Can the same be truthfully sal 1 about Maj. Schwarz? He lias been elected alder tnuu oftenor than any other citizen of Sa vannah, but how many times has he beon appointed, or thought to be competent, to serve on the finance committee? And did not Maj. Schwarz get the financial affairs of tiie regimental armory into almost inextricable confusion, so much so as to require the services of nn accountant to straighten tbein out? And was not the cost of tliat armory largely increased by reason of tle major’s inefficient direction of its financial affairs? A id, finally, can wo reasonably expect Maj. Schwarz to pre-ide over large interests more successfully tbau he has done over small ones? I have not the slighto-t |r rsounl animus against Maj. Schwarz, wbd p issessos many excellent qualties, but business is business, and the test of fitness should be applied to candi dates for i filce, especially in a campaign for tho chief magistracy of a growing ami im portant city like Savannah. Fellow tax-payers, think over these things, ami promote your own interests and those of Savannah ly voting for Daniel R. Tbomiis to be mayor of this town 1 Savannahian. MAJ. SCHWARZ’ WAR RECORD. Some of Rla Advocates Don’t Seem to Know Much About It. Editor Morning .Sewn: In a city cam paign dodger, issued Saturday, J found tho following: "IVho are opposing Schw arz outside of the different corporations? A few clubs, com posed mostly nf youngsters, who are calling the major a foreigner, when before they were born he stood shoulder to shoulder with their fatbe:*, fighting for southern rights and the ate of his adoption." The writer deprecate* bringing the pri vet* character or personal record of any citizen into local politics or public criticism, but when the friends of a candidate at tempt to lift him into public office by such misrepresentations as are contained in tho above paragraph, it is hut just to all parties concerned that the truth iw known. The Confederate Veterans’Association— a society organized for the conservation of confederate memories, for the promotion of fellowship and the cultivation of friei dsbip among the surviving soldiers and sailors of the late confederacy—earnestly invites and eagerly welcomes into its ranks all true and faunful s utheru soldiers. About & year ago Maj. John Schwarz applied for admis sion into this society, and tnrough ome misunderstanding—l will not say misrepre sentation—was enrolled a member. But when he was required to explain his unsol lierly conduct of remain ing voluntarily within tae enemy’s lines after the fall of Savuunah—he has, after two efforts, failed to satisfy this association of bis fidelity to our cause, and his name has been dropped from its roll as unworthy of their fellowship. Until the major clears his military record of tbi3 stain ho must expect to be, and will always be clas-ed w ith those woo deserted the flag of our cause. Maj. Schwarz, therefore, did not stand shoulder to shoulder w.ta our fathers lig it ir.g for southern rights, and it is preposter ous for his friends at tins juncture to invoke the influence or votes of those comrades whom Le aeserted in the darkest hour of our country's p*ril. The major may well ex claim, “God save me from mv friends.” Youngster. To the People and the Democratic Party of Savannah. On the evening of Dec. ? lust, at the in stance of the Y T oung Men’s Democratic Club, a conference was had between a dele gation from that club and delegations from six other political clubs of this city in reference to the approaching municipal election. Flrther conference was invited for Jan. 4, succeeding, and on the evening of that day, delegations representing nine demo cratic clubs of the city assembled at the arsei al of the Savannah Volunteer Guards. Cordial admission to said convention was extended to the delegation of every club present. These clubs represented by actual count a membership of 3,463, and embraced a very large proportion of the legal voters of the city. Their ranks were open to every dem ocrat. After a prolonged but most earnest and orderly assemblage, a municipal ticket was selected, and the names of tho following gentlemen were presented to the democratic voters of Savannah: For mayor, Da iel R. Thomas: for aldermen, Herman Myers, George X. Nichols, George J. Mills, Geo. S. Haines, J. J. McDonough, W. F. Reid, F. A. Jones, George J. Baldwin, P. J. O’Oonnor, L. A. Falhgant, F. X. Douglass, Elton A. Smith. Each and everyone of the gen tlemen so seleoted accepted the Domination, with the exception of Mr. George S. Plaines, who found it impossible to serve the city longer in an aldermanic capacity. In con sequence of his declination a further con ference of the delegations from said clubs was called and assembled on the evening of Friday, Jan. 11, 1889. At said meeting Mr. William O. Canu was duly selected as an alderman in tho place of Mr. Haines, and a complete municipal ticket was pre sented to the people of Savannah. The names thus chosen were not in every instance the preference of each one of those who made the selections. Personal likes and dislikes were generously lad aside, and the result was the outcome of democratic harmony, and of patriotic pur pose. Tins ticket, in its totality, has met the cordial approbation of the great mass of democratic voters. It has received the hearty indorsement of the clubs, and has strengthened and unified upon its own merits. It is the only ticket before the people which represents the Democratic party. It has the prestige of democratic organization. It enjoys the inherent power of preliminary party action, and is upheld by the strong iriiluonce of pa ty usage. It shows the im primatur of a democratic nomination. No otner ticket offered to the people possesses a similar sanction. The clubs that have made up and indorsed this ticket invoke the loyalty of every and mocra;, and bespeak cho co-operation of evory c nsorvative citizen. In the interest of the party, of political harmony, and of good government, they urge its hearty and uuammous support. George A. Merger, General Cnairman. J. H.

HAY RAISING IN THE SOUTH. An Industry that Promisee to be a Great One with Southern Fanners. The south promises anew agricultural industry—that of raising hay for the north ern and western markets as well as for its own market. When Col. C. H. Phinizy of Augusta was in the city last week attending the election for Central railroad directors, ha fell in with Mr. C. Minelas. and an interesting conversation followed on the productive grasses of the south, indigenous and for eign, and Mr. Phinizy related his experi ence in raising a hay from vetch and outs which is likely to become popular in the south, and in the north as weil. Later n Col. Phinizy, in an interview with a Morning News reporter, went into fuller details. Col. Phinizy sai 1 that the vetch glass is a perennial not indigenous to the south, but is imported. Oats are sewed with the vetch seed and the crop cut wheu the oats are in milk. Successive crops are obtained by breaking the ground and sew ing the oats, and the two come together. The oats may be sown in September, Octo ber oi November, or in March. Col. Phinizy said that during the recent races in Angus's, he sold some of this hay to the owners of a ime of the race horses of the north, who ha 1 been brought to Au gusta, and it was found that the health and condition of the animals improved with this feed, and the use of mash, which had been given twice a week was wholly dis continued. The hair of the horses became glo sy, and the feed was cooling, so mani festly superior to timothy that Col. Phinizy said that he was somewhat surprised to re ceive an order from the north for some of the vetch-oats hay for the racing stables. He says it will command a better price than timothy, bringing $22 per ton readily, while timothy is worth but S2O. Mr. Phinizy says that the vetch grass thrives equal.y as well in this climate as any of the indigenous grasses, and the de mand for the seed is growing. The farmers ah iut Augusta who raise it are receiving orders from different s ctions of this state and Alabama, and Col. Pninizy says he sent some of the seed to Montgomery re cently. There is no reason why it should not, in connection with the oats, take the place of northern hay throughout the south. ON RAIL AND CROSSTIE. Local and General Gossip in Railway Circles. J. W.
