DEATH KXDEO HIS SESTEXCE.
A Convict Die* From Sunstroke Af
ter Two Bnj-O in tke Cnmpo.
Complaint was made at the office of the
county commissioner a day or two ago by
a woman, who stated she was the mother
of Jim Simmons, who died at the convict
camp last Monday, that she was not notl-
IK-1 of her son's death, and that she was
slven no opportunity to take charge of
the body and see that it was properly
hurled.
She said that her son had been buried
very shortly after his death, having been
tulJ so when she called at the office of the
county engineer to ask about the matter.
Simmons was sent out to the convict
gang last Saturday, on a charge of stab
bing, and was given a sentence of six
months. His death occurred two days
later. According to the report made to
the county engineer by the captain of
gang No. 2, which is working on the rifle
range, and with which Simmons was work
ing, the negro went to work Monday
morning for the first time, and worked on
the range pretty well until about 10
o'clock, when be complained of his knee
hurting him. His complaints were such
that Capt. Carroll said he allowed him to
stop work and sit down. No more atten
tion was paid to him until 12 o’clock, the
dinner hour, when Simmons was told to
get up and go over to the trees with the
lest of the convicts, who were going to
their dinner.
Simmons then complained that he could
not walk, and after trying two of the
men were made to pick him up and carry
him to the trees. A few minutes aftr
they arrived at the place Simmons died.
Maj. Blandford states, as does also Quar
termaster Moore of the camp, that the
hitter came at once into the city and no
tified the county engineer and the cduntv
physician. Hr. T. 15. Chisholm. Quarter
mister Moore pays Hr. Chisholm told him
to look up the man's relatives. The doc
tor also reported the matter to Under
taker W. H. Dixon, and then went out to
the camp. Dr. Chisholm arrived about
4. .a o'clock in the afternoon, Moore states,
and examined the body, which was at the
camp. Dr. Chisholm gave a certiflcate
of death from thermic £ever, or heat.
Quartermaster Moore said that only the
man's sister could be found. She was
living at I.ePagevllle, ami stated that
she had several brothers up town, but
that she did not have time to attend to
ttie matter herself. A search forrelatlves
of the mao was also made in Bast Sa
vannah. hut none of them could be found.
The boify was buried the same after
noon at C o’clock. Ti)e next day the ne
gro's mother called at the office of the
county engineer and made complaint about
not having been notified jf her son's
death, and stated she wanted the body.
She was told it hail been buried. She
then went to the office of the county
‘ ommlssloners, where she made complaint
that she had not been notified of her
son s death, and that he had been buried
a few hours after It occurred. There lias
been some little talk about the matter,
and the statements of both sides of the
case are given.
JAM AKY AMI MAY ELOPEMEAT.
The Oltl Man AVilli a l’itol, and lion
tin* CliuNe Ended.
A strange story comes from one of the
precincts of Chatham county. An oil
citizen of that bailiwick had become
enamored of a comely young woman of
17 years, and after experiencing consid
erable difficulty in his courtship on ac
count of the father's objections, the young
woman and the old boy of (A) concluded
that they would "shy" the old man's
house and hie them away to the parson
and get married any way.
One day recently, while the father was
at his work the couple flew the house
and had the knot spliced. When the
father returned In the evening he found
the birds had flown. His ire immediate
ly “riz,” and arming himself with a pis
tol, he pranced up and down in the neigh
borhood where the loving couple were
whiling the happy hours away, but could
not get even a glimpse of the sweet young
man of 60. Next day he went on to his
work, but could not rest content. So,
putting on his coat he again started out
for blood. After hunting for a couple of
hours, and getting broiled with the sun,
he ran agin the aged son-in-law. He
shook his fist and Jerked his gun and
was about to let the light shine through
his son-in-law's body, when that indi
vidual saw' the old man was overheated,
and suggested a visit tea nearby saloon.
The dad-in-law being* thirsty, accepted
the invitation, and over mugs of the am
ber-colored liquid, soothed their anger,
and went to seek the bride, singing, as
happy as the day was long.

There To-day.
The Savannah base ball club leaves this
morning for Thomasville, where it will
play the team of that city to-day and to
morrow.
The team is composed of 3ome of the
best players of the city. It is as follows:
Coney, catcher; Herty and Gross, pitch
ers; Stewart, first base; LeClair, second
base; O’Connor, D., third base; Murray,
shortstop; Garmany, left field; O'Connor,
H., right field; Moll, center field. The
Bavannah boys are sure to give a good
account of themßelves. •
Frank Eutler's debut into the National
League was one that the young man need
not feel ashamed of.
Butler, who has been playing with Nash
ville since the beginning of the season,
was recently bought by the New Y'ork
club. He played Ms first game with that
team Tuesday and made an excellent
showing. Out of six times at hat he got
* wo rung, two hits and accepted the only
chance he had in the field. To try his
nerve Capt. Doyle put him up to bat first
man, but it did not seem to phase Frank
a hit. The New Y'ork papers speak very
well of him.

THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, AUGUST 2. 1895.
A PEACH AST FOB MATCHES.
A Slick Thief Caught by Police De
tective Klley. *
Detective Klley made a good catch yes
terday. Sometime ago, Mr. T. W. Mitch
ell lost two gold watches and one silver
watch together with two watch chains.
One of the watches was owned by his
grandfather and had been In the family
forty-five years.
Mr. Mitchell keeps a green grocery at
the corner of Drayton street lane and
Duffy streets. -He did not discover his
loss until * day or two ago and only yes
terday reported it at the barracks and
asked that tt be investigated. Detective
Klley was sent out to look into the mat
ter. Mr. Mitchell had a negro named
John Livingston and a negro boy em
ployed with him. After making an inves
tigation the detective decided to arrest
both of them. It was soon found, how
ever, that the boy had nothing to do with
the matter and he was released.
Livingston denied all knowledge of the
theft. Detective Kiley went to the ne
gro's house in Duffy street lane anw after
a long search found one of the watch
chains hid in an old bowl. Mr. Mitchell
Identified this, but before It was found
could hardly believe that Livingston was
guilty of the theft. When he was shown
the chain Livingston gave In and offered
to tell the officers where they could find
the watches. They told him they would
find them without his assistance. One
of them was found at a paw nshop and the
two others at a repair shop where they
had been left by the negro. All of the
stolen property was thus returned to Mr.
Mitchell. The old gold watch referred to
was stolen from Mr. Mitchell's grandfath
er In Augusta fifteen years ago, together
with $1,500. The watch was recovered,
but the money was noi.
CLAY UHOIGIIT FROM ENGLAND.
Quantities of It Imported Through
Savannah.
The German ship Stephan is unloading
at the Central railroad wharves, 1,000 tons
of Imported clay and bleaching chemicals,
brought here from Plymouth, England, for
the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mills of At
lanta.
Mr. Oscar Elsas of the company was In
tho city yesterday, looking after the un
loading of the material. This ship was
chartered to bring over a full curgo of
the stuff, and the company has rented a
portion of the Central railroad wharves
for storage purposes.
This is the first shipment that the Ful
ton Bag and Cotton Mills has brought to
this port. Sir. Elsas says that he finds it
advantageous to have the material
brought direct to Savannah, but that be
is now compelled to get a full cargo at
one time, which keeps from $15,000 to $20,-
000 tied up, whereas this would not be the
case. If there were direct steamers run
ning across and he could get part of a
cargo on one order.
He thinks everything should be done to
encourage the direct trade movement to
this port, and says there is no doubt that
a regular line, even though it ran only one
or two steamers a month, could do a good
business. His company, he says, Imports
about 1,000 tons of this stuff every five or
six months. The duty on the 1,000 tons
just brought over amounts to about $2,000.
THIS GHOST SMOKES.
I licitnny Manifestations In a Phila
delphia House.
From the Philadelphia Press.
A genuine ghost, Who smokes cigars
and inclines a glass against his lips, Is
said by the neighbors to haunt an empty
house on Nineteenth street, below Fed
eral. Until yesterday the police laughed
at the story, but the ghost made so many
appearances, free of charge, that the offi
cers began to search for him in earnest.
Mrs. Dempsy, who lives on the other
side of the street from the house which
is said to be haunted, on last Thursday
was startled to see a white shape sitting
at a window at the "haunted house,”
smoking a cigar, with evident pleas
ure. other people saw the cigar-smoker
and didn't know what to make of It.
One washerwoman said: "I’m sure 1 saw
blue fire around the man. Didn't you,
Mrs. O'Hoolahan?”
Mrs. O'Hoolahan wasn’t sure, but she
and several others w f ere on guard next
evening, and the ghost was observed
to drink something out of a glass. He
looked out the window, as if he was
amused at the terror w-hich he created.
Last Saturday night a crowd waited
for him to appear, but he was evidently
a shy sort of a ghost and he reserved his
next appearance for last evening. Eye
witnesses say he positively appeared then,
and that he smoked another cigar.
"He must be a cool sort of a fellow to
smoke a cigar in such warm weather as
this," remarked one citizen, wiping the
perspiration from Ills face with a wet
handkerchief.
"The police ought to search that house
at once," said Mrs. Dempsy, and when
the officers did arrive they searched every
room in the house, but couldn’t find the
ghost. They came across traces, how
ever, which showed that somebody had
been In the house quite recently, and
a rear cellar door was found to have
been tampered with.

BEAUTY.
HO AY' TO INCREASE IN WEIGHT AND
OTHERYYISE IMPROVE ONE’S PER
SONAL APPEARANCE.
Every normally constituted man and
woman wants to look well. This 1* natural
and right. We have little sympathy for
those people who, through indolence or
gluttony, have permitted themselves to
take on too much flesh. They know that
by living abstemiously and taking plenty
of exercise they can get back to their
normal weight.
M r e do, however, have a great deal of
sympathy for those poor, pale, thin suf
ferers who either have no appetite or else
whose food distresses them to such a de
gree that they are forced to live on a most
frugal diet.
"Going into a decline." How often do
we hear this expression. What does it
mean? It means that peopl# are losing
flesh, growing thin, wasting.
Their trouble arises from the fact that
they are unable to digest sufficient food
and when the stomach is out of order and
fails to do its proper work, foods are worse
than useless. They simply ferment in the
stomach and fill the system with poisonous
principles.
What these people need Is something
that will digest their food after it has been
eaten, and it is In Just such casts that the
Digestive Cordial as made by the Mount
Lebanon Shaker* Is proving remarkably
successful.
It is so prompt in its action that a sense
of relief almost immediately follows the
first dose, and a rapid increase in weight Is
soon noted.
The Shakers have Issued an Interesting
pamphlet which may be obtained upon In
quiry at any drug store.

XI will: XHIINTAINN OF SILVER.
Alaskan Indians Tell of a Keeton
Y\ here Sliver und Cupper Exist la
a l’nre State.
From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
On tho head waters of Cooper river,
about Ski miles from the sea coast, where
but one white man has ever succeeded In
reaching, dwells a strange and peculiarly
mysterious race of Indians. In recent
years, through some traders, they have
acquired possession of a few guns, and
now when they come down to the trail
ing posts on the Kueck river, at the bead
of Cook's Inlet, they often bring bullets
moulded out of silver and other metals.
The Alaska Commercial Company’s agent,
three years ago, obtained several of these
bullets, and sent them to Sun Fruncdseo
to be assayed, and tho returns Indicated
that 65 per cent, was silver, the remainder
belng copper and lead, with a slight trace
of gold.
The Indians have a great many prlmtlve
weapons and cooking utensils, all of whlrh
are rudely, though skillfully, made out of
pure copper. They have frequently In
formed the white traders that sliver and
copper abound in immense quantities tit
the base of a peak back of Spirit Moun
tain, which is now reckoned us being the
highest mountain In North America by
surveyors and engineers who have viewed
It from a distance. It Is known that these
Indians hav no moans or knowledge of
reducing ore, and it seems almost certain
that they must be telling a true story
about silver and copper being found In
almost pure quantities in Its native state.
The winter Is the only time the Indians
visit the roast for trading purposes. In
the summer the post on the Kueek river
Is abandoned on account of the rapnelous
appetite of the mosquitoes, it being Im
possible for a human being tu survive
their attacks. Several Instances are
known where they have killed and de
voured Indian dogs. The nutlves. for that
reason, give the coast a wide berth In the
summer.
The. only reason, apparently, why some
of those typical American prospectors,
those who have seemingly prospected from
Infancy, and have panned out gold In
every camp of Importance fruit* California
to Cariboo and the Cassjar, have not vis
ited the upper Copper river country. Is Its
almost complete inaccessibility. Several
parties have attempted to ascend the riv
er, tmt from the nature of the stream, be
ing excessively swift and turbulent, one
might as well try to climb Niagara Falls.
The river Is lined on euch side for miles
and miles with nothing but glaciers,
whose walls ure perpendicular from the
summit to un unknown depth below the
water, and whose every side is seamed
with crevices so deep as to be almost
fathomless. But one white man has ever
succeeded In reaching the forks where the
Chlttyna puts off to the east, and that
was Lieut. Allen, w ho, a number of years
ago, after undergoing hufifshtps of un
usual severity, ascended the river about
200 miles.
