Alexander, who takes a decided in tmt in the visit of the commission, said to til Morning News reporter yesterday: *‘l/regret that previous engagements will ciUil mo from the city during the time •w.fhich the visitors are expectod here, but I Qwtainly have the interest of tho move ment at heart. The visitor) should be im pressed with the business Importance of this city, and if I may be pardoned tho Hugges- Ftion, it should be more of a business recep tion to them, and not so much of an effort to impress them with tho hospitality for which Savannah i s noted. Doubtless they mean business, aild would prefer t-o dispone with any undue effort to show our welcome. What they are coming for is to learn what claims Savannah can present for loosting the navy yard here, and this is what we want to do. I think the city council ought to make a formal tender of as much land to tho United States as is wanted, ad at a nominal jfrfpj lay $1 an acre. This action might be proper:/taken by the council pre vious to the visit of the naval commission, or at. lewßt a* soou as the commissioners reach here.* 1 TWO SITES SUGGESTED. Gen. Alexander went into a lengthy re view of the situation covering much of the ground that has been covered in inter views already printed in the Morning News. “If Hutchinson's Island is adopted for a Bit*/ be said, “it will be very easy to extend the Central railroad track across to the island above the harbor limits and run the track down to the site of the navy yard, putting a draw bridgo over the channel. I have spoken of the location on Hutchinson's Island first, but I think it very possible t hat a Careful examination might find an equally available site east of the city, between tho Savannah, Florida and Western wharves and Fort Oglethorpe, which ouuld be reached by extending the track of the Sa vannah, Florida and Western railway. “Excellent foundations can be secured anywhere in this vicinity bv piling, a* there is a substratum of saud from 15 to 20 feet under the mud everywhere which is easily reached. The Genu al rai Iroad cotton compress, which is one of the heaviest pieces of machinery used, has foundations made iu this way which have stood per fectly, and the piles once driven are inde structible. The advantages of locating a navy yard near a city of so much commerce and population, and with such extensive manufactures and workshops, are too ap parent to do more than refer to. THE ADVANTAGES OF AN ATLANTIC STATION. “I am quits sure a location of tba nary yard on the South Atlantic coast is prefer able to on* on t||p gulf. In cas of star tbs A lantie coast isjhe most exposed to furoigu attack, and with its numerous large cities close to the ocean, offers the greatest in ducements to a foreign enemy to striko at. A few gulf porta are comparatively much easier del ended than the Atlantic ports, and oven a successful attack on any one of them would inflict comparatively slight injury compared with what would result from a successfcl assault upon any of the northern ports, consequently, Savannah being so much nearer the vital parts of the country than the gulf, a naval establishment hero oould render more prompt and efficient as sistance to the defe se of the most impor tant cities of the country; at the same time (savannah would t>e near enough to con tribute largely to the defense of tbo gulf if it were threatened. Iu short the strategic position of Savannah, lying about half way between New York and the gulf, and at the re-entrant angle of the cotut, and being the nearest point to the coal and iron lauds of Alabama and Tennessee, seem to me to adapt this oity admirably for the purpose wanted. ” A PKMPBKKB SUSTAINED. Judge Adams Baida That Chatham County Cannot Be Garnisheed. In the superior court yesterday in the case of Thomas D. Dotterer et aL vs. WlU iam F. Bowe et aL and the county of Chat ham, garnishee, the court rendered a judg ment sustaining the demurrer of tiiecouusel for the county, in whicb Judge Adams de cided that the county is not subject to gar nishment. The subject matter of the suit was the erection of tiie new jail. Dotterer being a creditor of Mr. Bowe, the contractor woo built the jail, sought to garnishee certain moneys due the contractor by the county, and tue burden of Judge Adams’ decision is that the county as debtor to certain parties it not subject to garnishment us regards funds In Its hands belonging to a contractor. AT THU! OODkTg. In the equity suit of 000. Blandon vs. Hannah IS ilomon et al. iu the superior court yesterday, the court submitted the ques tions iu disputo to H. E. Wilson, Ktq.. as master to hear and and etermme tho questions at issue.

The Improvements Now in Progress to be Completed in Thirty Days. “How are you getting along w ith tho quarantine improvements*” a Morning News reporter asked Mayor Schwarz yes terday. “Wo propose to double tho working force at the station on Monday morning,” the mayor replied, “in order to facilitate the pr< gresK of tho work. “The engine, blocks, rope* and tackle have been ordered. Wo have received the bill o F lading, S > the material i§ on the way and will bo received during tho coming weak. The contract for sinking the arte sian well has boon given out to the Lap ham Bros The well will be located about 100 yards back of the wh irvos and tho work on the well will begin Monday morning.” “When do you expect the work to be completed f ’ “We have had very unfavorable weather, which has materially retarded its progress, but if the weather is favorable the work will be completed within thirty days, when wo will be ready to unload ballast. Two vessels can discharge at onoe by engine power, leaving one b -rth for a vessel to unload by hand if so desired by the masters of vessels. The work is progressing favor ably under tho supervision of Engineer Curtis, formerly of the United States en J gineoring corps. “You inav say,’’ said the mayor that the quarantine improvements which are being added by the city are the improvement and extension of the wharves; temporary shelter for all men engaged on the wharves under the supervision of the quarantine officer; a double engine and hoisting apparatus for unloading ballast by mechanical power; extendiug the tramway fifty feet farther back from tho wharves so that ballas may l>e discharged farther inland; the sinking of an artusia-i well to supply pure drinking water fer the city employes and crews of vessels and for boiler supply, as the water at the quarantine station is salty, except at low tide. “The idea,” the mayor said, “is to operate the quarantine ballast work for the benefit of commerce; to expedite the discharge of ballast, thereby giving vessels quicker dispatch to come into port. The charges will be very moderate, as the city does not want to make money out of the necessities of vessels coming to this port. Tho health officer is now en gaged in considering rules and regulations for the conduct of the station, which will bo ready before tho improvements now in progrok> are completed.” THH DebOTO LOOMING UP. Three Hundred Laborers at Work on the New Hotel. Work on the DeSoto progressed more rapidly last week than it has at any time yet. It was about the second week of good weather that the workmen have had since the building was begun. Half of the sec ond story has be.n completed and the veran da at the o )rner of Harris and Bull streets is in progress Five large trusses t beams extended north and south across the dining room have also been completed. They will be the supports of the ceiliug to the dining hall. No post* will bo in the room. These trusses extend up an 1 form partitions to tho bed room* over the dining hall. Two hundred and seventy hands worked on the hotel last week and at least 335 will be employed this work. All of the terra cotta has leeii received for the second and third stories. This week the terracotta which contains tho name of the hotel will be put over tho Bull s reet entrance. Terra cotta will also bo put around the Liberty street entrance. The marble for the lining of this ontranco has not yet been received, but It is expected this week, and will be put up upon arrival. On tho exterior wall of the dining room are some very pretty iron ornamentations. These designs will bo worked indiscrimi nately in the walls a* the structure pro gresses. A small number of gray' I rick was used around the windows last week, and more will bo used this week, making the construction of the second story of gray and red brick. The porch around tho corner of Harris and Hull streets will have a concrete floor, but it will not 1h nut down until the building is completed. The third and fourth stories will be of gray brick with terracotta, and the fifth and sixth will be of terracotta. GETTING IMPATIENT. Tho Friends of Marion Erwin, Esq., Thirk He Ought to be U. S. District Attorney. The friends of Marion Erwin in this city, a id tbe other cities of the district, are sur prised that his ‘ appointment as United Stitea district attorney hangs fire, and especially so as he has been indorsed almost unanimously by the bar of Savannah, Ma con, Augusta and Bru swick, by Judge Speer, the pretiding judge of the district; by the retiring district attorney, who re signed, and alto recommended by Judge Erskine. A warm friend of Mr. Erwin said last night: “The delay is a mystery, and more especially ho as Mr. Guerry has resigned a id there is no strong opponent iu tbe field. Mr. Erwin ha< uiuitio tionalde qualifica tions for the place. He has been a member of the bar for eight years, has been clerk of tbe United .states district court for six years, his clerical connection with tho > nited States courte having fitted him for district, attorney beyond the average law yer. Beside* he was admitted to practice In the United States courts 'wo year* be fore he qualified a*, clerk. No one doubts his qualifications. He is a young man of 34, a graduate of the Athens university aud studied law with C is holm & Erwin of this city, and passed a rigid examination in the superior court and afterward in the United States court.” It, is believed by life less impatient friends of Mr. Erwin that his appointment will be made by the President early this week. THE NEW U. 8. MARSHAL. How the President’® Appointment is Received in Savannah. The announcement that Walter P. Corbett of Macou has been appointed United States marshal for the Southern district of Ge >r gia, to succeed the late Col. L. M. Lamar, was received very favorably in Unite 1 States court circles in this city yesterday. Tho (fleers say >f him that he is a inau of excellent executive ability, an export ac counts .1, an industrious official and withal courteous and affable. Mr. Corbett was Col. chief deputy, aud by reason of his efficient services under his late ehief be was rtrongly backed by Judge Speer and influential friends. Tho ;:ow Uuited States marshal is about 24 rear* old. a i ative of Mac on, and son of Col. Corbett, a well-known citizen of that city. Young Corbett was married about two years ago to a Miss Schofield of Al bany, N. Y. He has made many friend* in this city, who will be pleased with his pro motion. Mr. Corbett’s opponents were Gen. La fayette Me Laws, Mr. A. E. Bho.es and Theo. Busch. It is understood that Gon. Me Law* was strongly backed by his old companion in arms, Geu. I*ODgstreet, but Mr. Corbett was too far in tbe lead to be overtaken, and he carried off the prize. Attention R. R. L.

Savannah to Have a Thoroughly Clean Place for Its Market Produce. The market, sewer down Barnard street is nearly completed. Aldermau Reid, chair man of the city council committee having charge of tho work, was seen last night by a Morning News reporter, and in reply to questions regarding the progress of the sanitarr improvements, and the future plans of the work, he said: “Tho main sewer has boon laid to the center of the market. A catch basin will be put in next w-eek. Tho sewers in the east, wo<t and south sides of the building will be laid so a*) to run the drainage into the river instead of into the Broughton street sewer as heretofore. The heads of the lateral sewer branches will be con nected with automatic flush tanks, also with a 2-inch hydrant for the purpose of flushing and washing the market out. There will also be latriees, or water closets, con nected with the market for both sexes, and> for white and colored separately arranged.’ “What are you going to do about the basement floor?” Aldermau Reid was asked. “The basement floor,” he said, “will laid in cement to carry the water into the sower instead of being absorbed by tho ground as at present. The entire market basement will bo whitewashed, and it will he placed in a thorough sanitary condition. In fact,” tho alderman said, “the improved sanitation of tho market has been w hat you might call my hob y, and I am in a fair way to see it carried out iu accordance with long cherished plans. “It is also the intention of tho market committee to regulate the drainage in tho basement where the ico chests are kept by the butchers, to curry the waste from the chests directly to the sewer. It has hereto fore percolated through the unsanitary floor and been absorbed by the ground.” Mayor Schwarz, who was present at the interview, suggested that the butchers be informed that this plan must be carried out, and that they will be required t > pay tho actual cost of that, part of the work, and ho arranged with Alderman Reid to visit the butchers in the market next. Tuesday morn ing to inform them of what they will be ex pected to do in tho matter. “If they pre fer to do the work t’lemselvos,” said the mayor, “of course they will be given the option, but it must be done under the personal supervision of Aldurmin Reid, chairman of the market committee. 11 Alder mau Reid suggested that the city could do the work for all at a less cost to the butch er* than if the latter did the work individ ually. At any rate both Mayor Schwarz and Chairman Reid said that the butchers will be expected to conform the ice chest drainage to the plans of the market com mittee. Returning to the subject of the sewerage work, Aldermau Reid said: “There has been a saving of at least #390 to the city by doing the work itself, iu addition to more work than was stipulated in the proposals we invited for bids. The additional work comprises such as connections with different drain pipes, which had been stopped up on ace unt of imperfect drainage, and the construction of sewe ’ traps to receive the drainage for the.se pipes. “The entire force engaged on street ex cavation for the Barnard street sewer which belonged to the street and bine department was turned over ttiis evening to tue street and lane committee, and the extra labor has been retained until the excavation in the building is completed. The work of excavation has been very heavy, although it has be*n pushed vigorously. Some idea of tne besvy character of the excavatiou may be gat ©red from the experience of one of the laborers. He b ught a shove), pay ing #1 25 for it, worked only one-fourth of a day, when he sold his shovel for 40 cents and abandoned work. The prase .fc sewer is very dee; 1 , being oil an averago of six feet lower than the brick sewer on Barnard street, which was too high to drain the market.” Alderman Reid added that the plumbing work will begin in a few days, and ill be done under tue immediate supervision of City Surveyor Col. W. J. Winn. Aider man Reid wns not prepared to say when the uutire improvements will be completed, but he said that there will be no delay in prose cuting the work vigorously until the mar ket building is put in that sanitary condi tion which the structure, where so much of the food supply Is disposed of, demands.

Ludden & Bates Southern Music House to Discontinue Their Art and Sta tionery Department—Their Increas ing Plano and Organ and Music *rade Obliges Them to Have All Their Ground Floor Space. AN INTERVIEW WITH MR. .T. A. BATES. Going the rounds of the leading business houses our reporter called yesterday on Mr. J.A. Bat3, treasurer of Ludden <fc Bates Southern Music House. “It is rumored about town,” said the re porter, “that your house intends to discontinue its Art Department. Is it true?” “Yes and no,” replied Mr. Bates, smiling. “The fact is that for several reasons we have determined to discontinue the Art and Sta tionery business in Savannah.” “May 1 ask your reasons for this move?” q ueried the reporter. “First,” replied Mr. Bates, “the growth of our local Piano and Organ trade makes it abso lutely necessary for us to use our ground floor as a Plano salesroom. When we leased our present stand it seemed to us that the local trade of the city in Pianos and Organs would not warrant the rental of so large and expen sive a building, hence we ai led our Art and Stationery Department, partly to fill the space which we did uot then need, and partly to make our store attractive. But the surprising growth of our local l*iano and Organ trails shows that we were in error. Why. in the year just ended, we have sold nearly twice as many instruments in this city as In any previous year, an 1 we are absolutely forced to enlarge our show room to meet the demands caused by our present ex traordinary offers to Piano buyers- offers that are more liberal than those of any house in this country. “Next. Our Music Department has deter mined to still further increase Its stock of fine instruments for the growing local trade and to go more extensively Into importing and of job bing musical instruments, and to enlarge its publishing business. Hence, continued Mr. Hates, Ta.uable as the Art and Stationery De partment was to us, it was of secondary im portance. We have, therefore, decided to move it out and devote the space it occupied, aud our entire energy, to the Musical trade first, last and all the time, and shall try harder than ever to deserve the local patronage so freely aud kindly given us.” “But. asked the reporter, “what will you do with all this immense stock of Art ani Fancy Goods? How will you ever dispose of it ?” “Easily enough,” said Mr. Bates. First, we have sold out to Mr. M. T. Taylor our stock of Artists' Materials. Picture Moldings, Pict ure Frames, Engravings, etc., and he will oc cupy a small space with uu until Oct. 1, unless he can sooner find suitable quarters elsewhere. Next, the remaining stock of Stationery and Fancy Goods will b taken at once by Mr F. E. McArthur to Knoxville, Tenn., where we shall open under h s management & large Piano and Organ House, to which he will add the Sta tionery and Fancy Goons business.” "We shall thus move out quickly the entire stock and gam two most important ends: First, the ground floor space so imperatively needed, and second , establish a large agency for our in struments at a most important business oanter upon which we have long nad our eyes.” "Well, that certainly looks like a good stroke of business; but tell me. you cannot mean to give up your magnificent Piano and Organ salesroom on your second floor?” "Not a bit of it,” replied Mr. Bates, “we shall run that just the, same. We couldn't put one half our large stock of Instruments on the ground floor. Dor would we if we could, as on many accounts au upstair* warerooins is verv desirable. W need that just as much as ever/’ “From what you tell mo I judge that you must think the general business outlook en couraging?” “Most assuredly, and not only encouraging, but worth being enthusiastic over. Why should we not enthusq when our sales for this year are $5n,000 ov*r those of any previous year. Savan nah is reaching out tremendously, and will ere many years show a population -f 100.- 000. That means a continually increasing de mand for Musical Instruments and Music, and of this future trade we expect, of course, to get our share as we have for the past twenty years. A NBW ISUQGHBTION WHAT TO HAVE. The City Market as It is—Recent Im provements-The Center of Attrac tion. One of the most important things in a city which affects the general welfare of the people is a market. It is to such a place that housekeepers who are ever worrying over the problem “What to have,’’ got a has the advantage ovo.* any other southern city save New Orleans. The careful atten tion given ;o the wholeso neness of all kind of eatables by an inspector, whose duty it is to report any sign or impure vegetables or. meats that might be offered to the public, makes it pretty safe for consumers. No ticing a crowd around stalls No. 67 and 68, the reporter drew near and found Mr. Logan, the proprietor, as busy as a bee, but not too much so to answer a few ques tions. “I see you have some nice beef, Mr. Logan. Is that the kind you handle all the timeT’ “Yes, I get all of my Mutton,‘Veal, Beef R‘bs and Loins, from Boston and Balti more.” “How are they shipped?” "In cold air boxes. Then I pack them in my ice house whicn, bv the way, is differ ent from anything of its kind in the city. My meats do not come iu contact with the ice, so are kept ooldand dry, retaining all their natural flavor and jucinesa. No. lam no cheap man; I handle the best and my meats giv# entire satisfaction. Cheap meats come out in the soup. Yes, l also handle native meats, basido the best West ern and Tennessee meats. Just look at this, continued Mr. Logan, it is the best Creamery Butter. I also handle that in large quantities. Pickled Pigs Heads, fresh Corn Beef, Pickled and Fresh Tongue, Beef and Pork, Sausages, Fish and Game of the season, is a feature of my business I pay especial attention to. Can I supply my patrons? Oh yes. I have three men cutting, and three wagons are on the go from 4 o'clock in the morning until 11 o’cl x?W. They cover a pretty l trge terri tory, you see, besides I have a boy whoso dmy it is to go every morning to my pa trons with a printed order like this (bow ing a little slip of priuted paper). This is do le for convenience and saves trouble to my customers, for hey know I keep the best, and 1 send what is ordered.” Mr. L'ganisone of the few successful butchers who understands his business thoughly, and housekeepers would do well to call on him for their table supplies, as he han.iles the best to be had. * One of the best stands in bruuswick, On., for a wh losale grocery or ship chandler's business is for rent Sse cheap column for particulars.

McDonough & Co.'s Door, Sash and Blind Manufactory and Planing Mills. Very few people of Savannah are aware of the immense concern that has sprung up like magic iu their midst. The immense Plauing Mills and Sash, Door and Blind factory of McDonough & Cos., is a wonder to all who have visited the works. Over five acres are in use, and the scene is one that is calculated to make one feel hopeful as to the future growth of Savan nah. Why Savannah has not become a great manufacturing city is a mystery to many. With the many natural advantages, healthful climate and open communication with the world, there is no reason for it) being otherwise. As an illustration of the profitableness of manufacturing, Mr. J. J. McDonough, the proprietor, has met with flattering success sine: his mills began work. In an interview yesterday with Mr. F. H. Morse, the manager, ho said: “I have been crowded to our utmost ca pacity. “The twenty thousand dollar contract we have with the DeS >to hotel that is under construction in this city, aud the Tybee hotel, keeps us pretty busy. ‘‘You see we have only been in full operation three weeks, and have had to work at nights to catch up with our or ders. Our warehouse is about complete, and we have just received our first shipment of White Pi.ue Sisb, Doors and Blinds. They will bo kept in regular sizes, and all odd sizo< will he made in the factory.” “What line of work do you make a spe cialty of!” was asked. “Oh, as to that,” remarked Mr. Morse, “we furnish the material entire for a building, bat do no contracting. “We also make a specialty of bank and counter work, and keep a large stock of Liard woods on hand for that purpose.” “How many machines do you run?” “Quite a number. We keep six different planing and molding machines running to their fullest capacity. “Our entire establishment,” continued Mr. Morse, “is fitted up with t’.e latest im proved machinery, and wo are pre: ared to turn out the of work. “We work about fifty hands; theya*e skilled mechanics, as we employ no other kind.” “You have every convenience, I see, Mr. Morse I” “Oh, yea. Two railroad tracks are laid in the yard, which brings our lumber right to the machines.’’ “Do you furnish everything for a building?” “Yes, everything, and the immense amount of stock we carry in Hardware, Glass, etc., enablessis to give special prices to contractors.” “You have your handt full, I should judgef’ “Well, ye?. lam kept pretty busy, but am ably assisted by Mr. T. J. Dinkens, who was formerly with Andrew Hanley. Mr. W. C. McDonough, brother of the proprie tor, has charge of the yard. So you see, I am pretty well assisted.” These mills are a pride to Savannah, and is a step in the right direction, for it shows what thrift, money and enterprise can do. * “THE FASHION WEARS OUT MORE APPAREL THAN THE MAN.” A Subject in Which Thousands are In terested—What is Seen on Broughton Street Any Fair Day—A Brief Con versation With a Prominent Fancy Goods Man. Broughton street is to Savannah what Broadway is to New York. It is the pulse of the city. It is here the student of hu manity can learn his greatest lesson. Tbo rich and the poor are each bent on some mission—the votaries of fashion, in gay at tire, giviug color to the scene—and the whole make an attractive picture. Follow ing the crowds as they surged up and down tiie streets, the reporter at last found him self in front of F. Gutman’s Fancy Goods House. Being curious to know why such a crowd was surging in and out of his store, the rep rter sought Mr. Gutman, who cheerfully answered a few questions. “It U this way nearly always on a fair day. Yes, we keep the best to be had, and our customers know this, and the conse quence is that we are crowded to our ut most capacity. Can I serve you* Oh! you are a reporter, eh? Well, I like newspaper men. Let me show you some few of our specialties. This we make a specialty of— laces aud evening nets. They are very handsome. The reason is rich in colors.

You see a lady will have no difficulty in matching any shade. The latest wrinklo in handkerchiefs is the shear handkerchief, m wiiite and colors.
