TIIE TILT ONJTIE BEACH. NEWTON’S TEAM AGAIN THE WIN NER BY 15 POINTS. Two Thousand People Witness the Hussars Tournament at Tj-bee—The Sand Track Too Soft for Hard Riding and the Score Not Up to That of May Weak—Tha Other Events of the Day —A Delightful Afternoon at the Sea shore. Tha Hussars’ tilt at Tybee yesterday re sulted in a victory for D. C. Newton's team over C. A. Fleming’s team by a score of 216% to 201%. Tbo tilt was for SIOO a side, the winning team to retain its money and the money of the losing team to go to the armory fund. The victory being awarded to Capt. Newton’s team, Scrgt. H. Clarke Davis, who scored the tilt, returned Capt. Newton’s team its SIOO, and the other SIOO was turned over to the armory fund. The day was a beautiful one, and the at tractions on the island di e > 2,00 J people to the beach. Trai s left th i city at 9:30 a. m., and in the afternoon at 12:15. 2:30, 5:10, 5:40 and at 8 e’clock, all but the last two trains being well filled. A more select crowd of people has seldom visited the island. There was a good bre-ze from the south and the air was <1 lightful, but most too cool for bathers, although the surf was so tempting that a few ventured in the sea to wanton with Us breakers be fore the lilt. the day’s amusements. The Oc.an house and Ocean View pa vilions we e crowded. A brass band fur nished music for dancers at the Ocean View pavilion The dancing committee was Messrs. W. B. Farr and S. Sternberg. A string l and play.d at the Ocean bouse pavilion for dancers with T. A. Habersham as tiie committeeman in charge of the pavilion. The switchback railroad ’.'as kept bury, and the n rial railroad i.ad all it could do, while afakir on the beach, with the thimb.e trick, attracted a crowd of the curious, who almost in ariably lost when they bet on another man’s trick. The tilting track was on the beach in front of the Ocean House, and when the tide had ebbed far epough for the course, the baud rrurciiei from the par.lion to the beach at 5 o’clocit, followed by full. 1,500 peop.e. At the call of the bugla, and af er the details of the tilt had been arranged, tlec in-*‘ti g teams took their places at the starting point. A rope was street bed along the beach west of the tilting course to keep the crowd from the track, and a portable platform for the judge* and timers was co iveyed to a point on the beach between tiie sea ad the course. The judges were, Capt. T. F. Stubbs, of the Effingham Hutsais, press ing judge; Lieut. A. M. Morgau of the Effingiam Hussars, and Private A. G. Cassels of the Liberty Independent Iroop. Time-keepers, Cant. J. F. H beaten, 8. Sternberg and C. D. Bussell. Scorer, Sergt H. Clarke D ivis. THE BEACH TOO SOFT. The beach was not as hard as was ex pected, and o dy two of the tilers ra i t..e course under 9 seconds. This, tha nearness of the crowd to the course, and the uu famidar surroundings to the horses kept down the score, aitu ugn the average wa better than the lilt during May week. Tiie individual average of to winning tea n yesterday was 43.3, to 36 3-11 during May week, while the individual ave. age of the lo mg team wa* 40.3 to 35 5-11 at the Mai week tilt, out of wive i lat.ergrew the chal lenge which resulted in yesterday’s tilt. Capt. D. C. Ne v.tou and Capt. C. A Flem ing were the captains of t ie opposiug teams of eleven in the May week till, as they wore yesterday in the teams of five, and it is a coincidence that tiie last fiv.i of oacii team that tilted May 7 composed the teams yes terday. The Fleming team was the first to ride, and as the score of tha first ride footed up but 64, the betting turned from even to odos by the friends of Newt n's team. As the second ride scored but 07, it w.,s dollars to cents that Fleming’s team was a loser, and no moro money changed ha ds. When the final re ult of the tilt was announced from the judge’s stand a shou: went up from the cr wd, which had been liberal Id applauding the lea s of borsemanshiD and sword practice, the lad.ee waving handkerchiefs and clapping tlieir hands au provingly at sums of the mo.t difficult points made by tie cavalrymen. H'nen the Hussars, who rad take i part, in the tilt, drew up iu line in front of the judges’ stand to hear the result officially ann unced, three cheers were given for each of tiie competing teams, and three cheers for the judges.

A good deal of money eha- god bands a nong tbo friends of the troopers on individu 1 sc ires, and th s* who expected to sue Cap . F.euiing well up Id the lead were disappointed a his score. Hi* horse was not as much at i orae on the beach as at Teu hr. eck course, and onlv tiie excellent u rsemnii ship of the captain of the losing team kept his individual score from gnit-g lower. McAlpin carried off the honors of the tilt on a score of 51, closoiy lolloped by Newton with 48. The Hu-iars were at the island in full force, wi.b all the officers of the troop, and were interested spectators of the tourna ment. TEE OTHER EVENTS. After tbo tilt there was a half-mile dash running race bet ween James .Maarten’s bay pony, C acner Cba lev, 1 ldde Iby A. Mi Is, Jr., and 8. Sternberg's bay horse, with it owner as rider. It was a pretty race, and was run in 55 seconds, Cracker Cuariey ■winni g by a close length. Later in the evening foot races for pri vate purees were ruti uu the beach, Tbe dancing, Inch had been interrupted by the tilt and races, was re*u tied after sup per, and wa* kept up until tiie last train left at V o’clock. T aken all in all the oc caaion was a pieaaant and most enjoyable one, au i a. a result the Hussars’ aim ry fund was increased to the amount of jluO, by the tdt and tue excursion. Much credit is due tu committee wnich had the management of t ofTair, and which was comp *.l of berg ant H. U. J) - via, chairman: sud Thomas iluuter, I. Miu i, A. Minis, Jr., and Georges. McAipl .

Wheaton was drafted in as a time-keeper. Commodore R. M. Domere of the Isle of Hope Yacht Club seemed to be taking as much interest in tiie tilt as he does in a yacht race. The tilt was very near th# water, and the commodore is at home on th# wave, or ns near It as he can get. Capt. W. D. Dixon of the Republican Blues was at the tournament. Oria of the features of the day was th# large number of lady friends of th# Hussars who were present at the tilt. They are en thusiastic over the enterprise o raising a fund to build an armory, and will be a co operative factor in future efforts to raise the fund. CITY BREVITIES.

BACK FROM THE MACON DRILL. Savannah’s Delegation Has Lots to Say of its trip. Lieut. CoL Peter Reilly, Lieut. J. F. Brooks and Lieut. M. A. O’Byrne of the First Georgia regiment, wb > attended the Macon drill, returi ed yesterday morning. They were highly pleased with their enter tainment ia Macon. They pronounce the drilling, ail arou and, the bas that has taken place at any drill in t ie state for a 1 ng ini*. The drilling of the Southern Cadets of Macon, they say, was well nigh faultless. The Savannah delegation were guests of a special c nnniittee, and were quartered at the Hotel Lanier with the United States ■Ulcers. Lieut. CoL Reilly was placed in com nand of one of be three batralions, wi.ii Lieut. Brooks as ac nig adjutant. Lie it. O’B/i'ne was on t ie s aff of Brigadier Cum uander Wiley. The Sa annah officers got tueir snare of praise. Col. Wiley said that oavaunuh should have her deserts at t,e ua ds of Macon. Tha Telegraph says that the Southern Cadets ha. e no better friend than Maj. J. F. Brooks. The boys are all s :pe stlti us in r# ard to the major, and when questioned me of them said: “Y iu seo, we like him ecause he is our mascot.” “Maj. Brooks,” t s Telegrapheuld*. 'has tha Cadets entirely ,t hi* mercy. When tie is present we ihvavs win. No handsomer officer ap loured on the field in tha dress parade and ion# attracted more attention for soldierly beari g.” About Lieut. O'Byrne the Telegraph -aid: “Lieut. M. A.

Now, if the expense (uestion came up, possibly- it would oe be3t 1 establish a camp near the center of tbe ate and bring all the troops together for it least a week’s drill.

Up to about tiiirty years ago Savannah bad a unique mntnod of reducing the sur plus of dogs. It was in keepmg with tne city’s other a..cient customs, s-ch as tiri g otf guns during 11. us. Wueu toe tire uell rank the old exenango bed, every bell In the town f. ilowvm suit, a id in* ringers kept up tne paiuiul o.atur until the lire was out, or the arms of the ntigers because tired. To teat ..in was added tbe discu .rga of tire arms Every fellow wn ■ had a pi tol, or an old "pepiier box.” would jerk It out and fire away. Occa loyally a Kray hinlet would cause the fuueial of a respectable citizen, but thuu It was a custom t - tire olf p si, Is in that manlier, and the “uid cit” bad no bus, 11ms to poke his head out of the wuidoa. People said tuat sue 1 practices should !>• stopped, ut they weie looked u,ou hy Hie c.ty authorities in those nays just ns the cuy lathers of to-day look 0,1 loose who want house drainage and 111 re water, and |mved stream.

Passing citi zens would sometim s join in the dog killing, and when the owner of ad ig who was be ing used as a creedmoor target would coma up it war not unusual for hi n to propose to shoot the naxt mau wh > s lot at his dog. An old timer, who was talki g of those day* jesterday, remarked: “Just think of an able-bodied white man lying flat on the pave rent, so a* to get a shot at a poor, wounded dog that had sought shelter under a house, and that on Bull street, not far from the court house. It took quite a num ber of newspap r articles to stop dg poison ing and dog-shooting, but after the aider men had abused the newspapers for several years, and accused the editors of trying to run the city government, they cha ged the law. The present syste 11 of and g-killing is quite as gre t an improvement on the old system as asphalt paving is on cobble stone, or artesian water is on river- water, and the house-drainage system will be ou what we now have.” RAIL, AND CROS3TIB. The Araericus liepublican. says that it is undo stood that me through line from C Limbus o Americus will not be put on until ihe trestles east of Buena Vista have sen rep ire 1 a id the side tracks lengthened to make passing room. It is s yet undecided, according to the Wall Street Newt, when the directors of the Louisville and Nashville will meet to lake action on the summer dividend. Pres dent Norton is in Europe and two other directors are making arrangements to cross the At lantic, consequently a quorum is for the time-being unobtainable. The regular session will, therefore, probable go over u itil the last week of August, or the early part of Sep.ember. It is expected the dindeud will be 2 or 3 per cent, for the half year. It is stated in railroad circles that on June 1 toe vjueen and C escent railroad system will take hold of its recently pur chased roads —the Anniston and Ci cinnati and the Auniston aud Atlantic railroads. •Vith the control of th,“se two new roads, the Alabama Gre t Southern officials will probably have their field of responsibility and action enlarged. Bupt. Griggs will have complete charge. T. F. Steel will oversee the traffic department and N. A. Bothag will look after the passenger in terests. The Hawkinsville News says that work is progressing on both the Dublin and Hawk insville e ds of the Hawkinsville, Empire and Dublin railroad.

T velvemiies of the line, from Empire to ward Dublin, are already iu operation, and hree large first-class engines are now pulling trains over that portion of the road. The na agers of this new road hope to get the grading completed between Dublin ad Hawkinsville not la'.er t an July 1, and have trains running over the entire line i time for u -loess next fall, ad the News believes they will accomplish their work by r before that time. At Dublin the new road will connect with the Wrightsville aud Teuuille r ad, t us giving Hawkins ville an outlet to Savannah over the Cen tral.

A leading citizen, well known for his con servatism and recognized for his success ii foreca>ting tue future, made a remark yesterday that was pregnant in its impor tance. Having first said that he wav not personally interested in lands about the city, he called attention to the fact that there were less than 100 a res J lauu avail anle f r building purp >ses o itside of A ,der s n street. Th se who heard it were dis posed to question the co rectne-s of the rem rk. Avery little explan itiou on hi.-, part and reflection on their | art c nvinced them that he was nearer correct than they at first thought he w as. W th proper allowance for streets an acre will produce only about five lots. Thi-, then, moans scarcely’ 500 lote for the future Savannah to live upon. Is the e any won der why there should be a demand for lotsf Is it not a wonder that some of the much ahused s nd.cates, who are developing tue city, do not uy up the whole busi ,ess and make a corner on lots? Those private per sons who are bu lug now will share the be eflts winch resuit from the improve ments to be made oy the syndicates. The far-seei ig people realize what will soon be aopare tto all, and they buy. The sal< this afternooti will show tha our peop.e have lost no confidence in the future o their city. * DESPISE NOT THE DAY OF SMALL THINGS. A Word to the Disappointed Ones. On Wedne day last there were several persons who were aitiug until the auc tioneer, who would get t red, or the crowd would thin out, and they would get low priced lot3. The auctioneer stopped and lft the crowd still hung y. Some were unable to buy sue big i-priced I ts. To all of these disap point'd ones it should ue said: Don’, bo ashamed to start in an humble w ay. II you ca ,’t buy a 11,000 lo , get a cheaue one. It will be worth SI,OOO much soonei than you now think for. Small bogmni igs make big endings. Some day your tit le lot will be wanted by someone who is will ing to pay you well for it. Secure the , while you can, and it will do you g >nd to have an incentive to lay by a few Jolla - every inoath. Such an incentive has the moral effect ot cu ting of had habits. * I would that all man would use judgment in their real estate transactions. It “wearies me” to see men rush ten, twe ty, thirty miles away to buy a home and depend upon tho uncertainties of transportation to get to their work. Toe rub comes when they want 1 1 sell out. It is so hard 1 1 find another “lamb” who wants to buy. Bly i a city, "be e the people are—and where they are likely to eontiuuo to be—who will buy your nroiierty when you sell out. Railroad men should remerab r that the Bed, Line passes near tho lots which are to bo sold by Dorsett this afternoon, and will take them to their work and borne at night. * DRY GOODS.
