/ (JEN. ALEXANDER'S VIEWS.
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

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

AT THE QUARANTINE.
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.

A warm friend of Mr. Erwin said last
night: “The delay is a mystery, and more
especially ho as Mr. Guerry has resigned

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 MARKET IMPROVEMENTS.
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.

An Essay for Man.
Improving on Pope—Translated From the
Sanscrit of Dennis Mulcahey.
CANTO I.
Awake my muse: leave all small things.
To low ambition and envy's scornful stings.
Forget the new hotel, the market sewer,
Railroad schemes, quarantine, the new brewer.
Let Tybee bask amidst her rolling sands,
Her switchback road and picnic stands.
Spring has come! her vernal breath inspires
All, with bright hopes, boils and poetic Are.
The new oourt house clock will reckon future
time,
The new postofflee lives only In our rhyme.
But Fashion wields afresh her magic wand,
Last year s straw hat soon will be unpawned.
At Levy's, ‘ bustle” wakes the morning air.
Spring Suits dispense a brilliant glare.
Tis there that Fashion bolds her gorgeous
court.
With seductive raiment for sage or ‘'sport.”
Imported Suits in Wide Wales, the newest fad;
Trousers in variety to drive a “Brummell” mad.
Neckwear varied as the rainbow's tints.
Furnishings that would make a cynic wince.
Lo! the poor Indian, whose bronzed frame
Courts nature and scorns Clothing's name.
Would “catch on” quickly to Levy’s show
And pledge his blanket such style to know.
Neglige Shirts, fit companions of our ease.
Such beauteous garments, one seldom sees.
Mother! Thou whose simplest wants
Are relinquished, to keep your boy in Pants,
We have Boys’ Suits, all wool and stout
At any price , to close the remnant out.
Ministers, who guide and keep us straight.
We have Suits for yon in any weight.
In fine we’ve opened up for Spring
A stock, whose praises even we must sing.
Our prices, too. catch Competition's eye,
But we always lead, while others can but try.
Our variety is so boundless in its extent,
That we please each, no matter what his bent.
We always keep faith with our many friends.
So that our reputation begins where others’
ends.
Call early at B. H. Levy & Bro.’s store,
And sen the rush, for every one “wants more.”
The man is wise, who knows when he is through.
We've finished, and leave the rest to you.

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.”

SAVANNAH'S GREAT ENTERPRISE.
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.
Hose, pink, red, green, mahogany aud man
drake are the latest shades. They are ultra
fhsinonable. Yes, the same colors are to be
found in the new style long-handle parasol.
Our trimming department is complete.
You see what beauties these are [showing a
card of buttons]. The fashion is for very
large buttons in metal,figured pearl, and
croc net, with small one? to match. Oblong
gauze fans are the latest fail, and society
ladies are very particular in the selection
they make. Our stock is complete. Come
this way,” continued Mr. Gutman, “and I
will show you our glove department. This
is one feature of our busiues? that particu
lar attention is given to. 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. Our ladios’ ready
made underwear is, I might say, a branch
of our business that a great deal'of thought
and attention has been given to. If you
are a judge of such things you can see that
they are not thrown together, but put up
in first class workmanship s yle, aid the
sowing is exquisite One of the demands of
the fashionable this season is for Iom!• 1
wraps and embroidered capes. What is
this, did you say? Tftat is lace covers for
parasols. They quite popular. Yes,
our trade is the bekt. We do not have
three floors or a great ware room, but what
we keep is for the fi er trade. We pride
ourselves on being pioneers in introducing
all the laUst novelties.” *
