A Hurd Fight to lie Mad* to Pam the
Anti-Barroom Bill.
Rome, Ga., Aug. I.—The temperance con
vention was in session all day, and to
lieht. The day was devoted to resolu
ti.ins, reports from committees and
speeches favoring the anti-barroom bill.
It was the sense of the meeting that a
petition favoring this bill should be cir
culated. and that 500,000 names should be
g'itned Ijy the time of the meeting of the
legislature. In October a monumental
convention will be held in Atlanta to work
on the legislature.
Supt. Hughes of the Georgia Prohibition
Association says the chances in favor of
passing the bill are excellent. He believes
it will be passed.
Much stress was laid on the fact that
it is in no way similar to the South Caro
lina dispensary law and Secretary De-
Loach stated that if the bill passed he did
not believe a single county dispensary
would be opened, as it would require a
majority of the free holders to do so.

ALL QIIKT AT JACKSON’S HOLE.
The Fright Not ao Had Rot That New
Settlers Are Coming In.
Jackson's Hole, Wyo., July JO. by Cou
rier to Market Lake. Ida., July 31.—The
I'nited Press representative arrived this
evening and the situation looks very mild.
Strange to say the first persons spoken to
in Jackson's Hole were not frightened
settlers moving out, but a party of Utah
people coming In. There are about twen
ty-five men here now, the others being
scouting in the location of the Indians.
The several scouting parties number some
thirty-five men.
Washington, Aug. I.—Commissioner of
Indian Affairs Browning this morning re
ceived a telegram from Gov. Richards of
Wyoming, stating that he had reliable in
formation that 300 Indians, supposed to
be Utes, were seen yesterday near South
Pass, Fremont county, Wyo. .and also
forty-seven Sioux on Bauwater creek in
the same county. All were mounted,
armed and without women and children.
Te governor stated that the people of
f remunt county were under arms and had
wired him for assistance. The governor
asked that these and ail other Indians in
W yoming be recalled to their reserva
tions. Commissioner Browning promptly
telegraphed the agents of the Ute and
Ouray Indians in Utah, the Lcmhls In
Idaho, the Shoshones in Wyoming, and
the Pine Ridge Sioux in South Dakota,
directing them to keep close watch of the
Indians In their reservations, and to
bring back all the absent ones. He also
advised Gov. Richards of the instructions
sent to the agents. No trouble is expect
ed by the bureau officials from the In
dians reported by Gov. Richards. It is
thought they have simply banded togeth
er to go to the scene of the trouble out of
mere curiosity, Just as t*ie white people
would do if anything or interest happen
ed In their locutions. Both bands of In
dians are now about 150 miles directly
east-south east of Jackson’s Hole.
Washington, Aug. I.—A dispatch was re
ceived at army headquarters to
day from Gen. Copptnger stat
ing that he had crossed the
Teton range with his command. This
puts the troops in the heart of the In
dian country and about 35 Or 30 miles from
Jackson's Hole. The dispatch comes from
Market Lake. As nothing is said regard
ing the situation it is inferred here that all
is quiet.
NV ALTER TO NWS BUSINESS HOW.
Williams A Cos. Enjoin Suggs From
Further Interference.
Waycross, Ga., Aug. I.—J. P. Williams
& Cos., commission merchants of Savan
nah, filed to-day an injunction against W.
E. Suggs, Clayton Davis and Early Davis
restraining them from further Injury or
molestation to the business of J. H. Parish
at Waltertown. Williams & Cos. have a
mortgage for $14,000 on Parish’s business.
The injunction is intended to protect the
business and also to keep the parties from
Intimidating Parish.
The petition of Williams & Cos. shows
that the firm of Suggs & Cos. at Waiter
town, was Indebted to the petitioners and
that it was deemed best to relieve Suggs
of his interest In The firm and let Parish
manage the business In the name of J. H.
Parish. Then, says the petition In sub
stance, Suggs became offended with both
Parish and Williams & Cos., for his re
moval. Suggs armed himself and with
three of his friends, Clayton Davis,
Early Davis and another one.
went to Parish’s house and
with threats of killing Parish, who
was covered by four guns, demanded SIOO
upon pain of death. Parish was forced
to comply, and the men went away load
ed down with provisions and with a check
for $25. Suggs and his friends claim that
Parish is responsible for Suggs’ down
fall, and they demand of Parish SIOO a
month hereafter until Suggs finds employ
ment.
The Morning News published an ac
count of the trouble which happened last
Saturday night at Waltertown, and the
injunction confirms the story.
MEXICO'S NEGRO COLONISTS.
Their Condition More Deplorable
Than First Supposed.
Washington, Aug. I.—The condition of
the distressed negro colonists from Geor
gia and Alabama, w’ho deserted the Tla
hualilo colony in Mexico, is more deplor
able than at first supposed. Consul Sparks
at Piedras* Negras, telegraphs the state
department that while rations are being
furnished to 300 colonists who have reached
Eagle Pass, Tex., they are practically
naked. The other 3tK> who have not yet
crossed to the t’nlted States have little to
eat. No subscription to furnish those
colonists with food and clothing and
transportation to their homes has been
started, and the state department has no
funds for the purpose. Many arc ill, but
receiving medical attention from Assis
tant Surgeon Tenick of the army. It Is
not known how the colonists will be cared
for unless a subscription is started for
their relief, such as was done In this coun
try for the starving Russian peasants.
MARRIED TO HIS NIECE.
The Groom 40 Year* Old and the
Bride Only IS.
Annapolis, Md., Aug. I.—The neighbor
hood of Jewell, Anne Arundel county, is
somewhat disturbed at the announcement
that one of its residents has married his
own niece. The ceremony is said to have
been performed by a minister at Upper
Marlboro, Prince Georges county, where
a license had been, procured. The bride
is 18 and the groom 40 years old. When
questioned as to the propriety of mar
rying his own niece the groom produced
a marriage certificate, saying, "The min
ister married us, and here is the certifi
cate.” About fifteen years ago a gentle
man in the same district was united in
marriage to his niece and the marriage
was afterw'ard legalized by the Mary
land legislature.
AN ATTEMPT TO WRECK A TRAIN.
Flab Platen Removed and Spikes Un
fastened Near Belnlr.
Augusta, Ga., Aug. I.—At attempt was
made last night to wreck the express -o
Atlanta on the Georgia railroad. Some
miscreant unfastened the fish plates and
removed the spikes Just this side of Be
lair, where there Is a steep embankment
on both sides. Fortunately, only the bag
gage car and second-class coach Jumped
the track. The escape from going over
the embankment was miraculous.
Strike of Gotham’s Tailors.
New York, Aug. I.—Both the tailors and
contractors engaged in the great strike
centinue to state their determination of
making no concessions. At the head ju ir
ters of the contractors' association it was
predicted this morning that the strike
would probably continue a month long, r
and that the striking tailors would be un
able to hold out for that length of tlm“.
The tailors say the strike will be over In
a week. Contractors meanwhile continue
to sign the new agreement and fully 3,'WO
tailors have returned to work qn their
own terms

WAY CROSS NEWS WAIFS.
Mr*. W. NV. % McCullough Dead—No
Rnyer* for fhe Pear (r|i.
Waycross. Ga.. Aug. I.—Mrs. W. W. Mc-
Cullough died at her home In this city
this morning, after an illness of several
weeks. Revs. Scruggs and Wynn will
ccnduct the funeral. The Interment will
take place at Lott cemetery to-morrow
morning at 5 o'clock. During her Illness
Mrs. McCullough had the best medical at
tention that could be had. Twins were
born to Mr. and Mrs. McCullough a few
r eeks ago and Mr. McCullough fears that
they cannot live long.
Pear growers in this county have been
unable to find a market where reasonable
prices could be obtained, and so far the
pears that have been shipped have not
left a margin fbr the growers after all ex
penses were paid. All the growers have
decided to let the pears spoil on the
ground. The pears are very fine, but
notwithstanding the effect of the blight,
the demand for them Is not as good as it
was last year.
S. A. Marshall, who has been chief
clerk at the fre'ght depot of the Plant sys
tem for several years, resigned that po
sition to-day. C. I. Allen was appointed
by Mr. Knight to succeed Mr. Marshall.
Many cf the conductors on the Plant
system have headquarters here and some
of them own good homes in Waycross.
It Is noticeable here and all along the
lines of the Plant system that the pas
senger traffic of the Plant system has
been greater since Col. B. W. Wrenn be
came passenger traffic manager than ever
before, and the passenger service has
given greater satisfaction to the traveling
folk than ever in the history of the sys
tem.
The Plant system runs four passenger
trains daily from Waycross to Savannah
and three passenger trains daily from Sa
vannah to Waycross.
A board of a Savannah-loan and building
association is being organized here, and
officers will be elected early next week.
Prof. Frazier a well educated Scotchman,
who used to teach school In Waycross, will
open a school next week in the Obadlah
Barber community down on the Okefino
kee swamp.
A tram road will be built at once from
Waresboro to Bunn's turpentine still, on
the Waycross Air Line. The read will be
seven miles long. It will be operated by
Mr. Bunn. The rails will be leased from
the Plant system.
There Is some talk of the Waycross
colony's building a pier on St. Simon’s
Island and putting on anew boat for the
use of the colonists.
The Presbyterians will not have preach
ing at their church until Sunday, Aug. 11.

We Invite the Ladies
Because we know that most gentlemen are
too busy, others too tired, and some of them
too indifferent to hunt bargains or look to
their interest.
We know that ladies know a bargain
when it is offered them. We have the bar
gains in Men’s, Boys’ and Children’s Cloth

the news spread. We will do the rest.

SAILMAKING FOR YACHTS.
Different Method* of Cuttiug the
Wing* For llneont.
From the New York Tribune.
"The proper cutting ami making of sails
for racing yachts should receive as care
ful attention as the skllfull designing and
thorough construction qt their hulls.”
This remark was made to a Tribune re
porter yesterday by A. Cary Smith, the
well known designer of many fast sailing
a:.d steam yachts, and of the swift sound
steamers Richard Peck and City of Lowell,
in discussing the new keel-sloop Defender.
"As I understand it,” continued Mr.
Smith, “one suit of the Defender's racing
sails is of the kind commonly known as
crosscut sails; that Is, sails the cloths of
which run square with the after leech.
This method of making sails is a very old
one, but is generally supposed to be new.
Such sails, however, were used on North
river sloops over forty years ago, and
were then quite common. The old sloop
yacht Maria, of that day. which was owned
by Mr. Stevens, had similarly made sails,
and old yaehtmen of the present day re
member that frequently, when she was
sailed in a strong breeze, her mainsail
was split.
”A man came to me a month or so ago
with-some English patent records which
showed that crosscut sails had been
thought of as early as 1844, over fifty
years ago, so that this manner of making
sails now is only a revival of a very old
method. The strain upon a crosscut sail
comes upon the thread with which its
seams are sewed, instead upon tho canvas
itself, as is the case with sails that are
made with cloth running parallel with the
leech. The crosscut sail, therefore, has
less strength, and is more likely to split
in a strong breeze, especially when bear
ing a heavy boom. A comparatively new
English method for making sails for rac
ing yachts Is to have the leech cloths, say
for a distance of four or five feet from the
leech, slightly longer than those between
them and the luff. The cloths are so
graduated in their increase of length from
luff to leach that the last one Is from six
to ten inches longer than it would be by
the old method. In light airs the leech
would be slightly slack, but in a heavy
breeze it would become flat and the sail bo
better than in a light breeze.
“By the old method of making sails the
leech often becomes so taut that It causes
the aftercloths to curl up and form a
bag, which makes the yacht carry more
weather helm than she ought to carry,
besides spoiling the shape of the sail. It
Is a fallacy to assume that a sail, to bo
well cut. well-fitting and einelent, must
set perfectly flat like a board. The wind
will be spilled from, or In other words,
will slide oft from sueh a sail, while a
sail which bellies a trifle will have a
draught, hold its wind anti therefore have
greater propulsive power. Refe'rrlng again
to the crosscut - tails, I will say that, ac
cording to an old maxim, 'history re
peats Itself.' This may lx* the case with
yachts of the present day which use' cross
cut sails, as did the old Marla, whoso
mainsail was so often split by a breeze
which would have bad no damaging ef
feet upon a sail made in the old style. I
trust that this history will not repeat
Itself. The cutting and making of sails for
racing yachts will be a much more, im
portant factor In the future than In. the
past, and It Is to be hoped that the sub
ject will receive study and experiment
commensurate with Its vital Importance. ' i
A veteran yachtsman, to whom were
shown the foregoing remarks by Mr.
Smith, said: ”1 fully agree with Mr.
Smith’s opinions on the subject, and can
give a very strlkimt practical illustra
tion In support of his theory. When the i
international race between the Mayflow >r ;
and the Galatearwas saled,several yacht*- i
men. Including myself, were on board the
Mayflower a* guests of G*n, Paine, her
enterprising owner. For fifteen or twenty j
minutes after the competing yachts had ,
crossed the starting line the Mayflower
was not sailing nearly so well as sho
ought to have sailed. All on board began
to ask one another what was the mat
ter with her. Finally, one of her guests
‘spoke right out In meeting,' and said that
her mainsail set too fiat. Experts on board
said that the sail did not set too fiat. Sud
denly the mainsail outhaul parted and the
sail ran inboard from two to three feet,
where ft was held by the clew-band,
which Jammed on the boom. Of course,
this gave the sail much more draught,
and as soon as the outhaul parted tho
Mayflower sailed right away from tho
Galatea. A purchase was rigged to hold
tho clew where It was, and that's the way
the Mayflower sailed ami won her race
with the Galatea. I have had the same
experience more than once myself, and
when the outhaul parted and the clew slid
Inboard, everything was 'O. K.’ Moral.
Don’t make yacht racing sails too flat.”
COLOR IN INSECTS.
With the lintterfly It la Frequently
Given n n Protection.
From the Pittsburg Dispatch.
The purpose of the coloring of butter
flies Is entertainingly told by Dr. C. F.
Marshall.
The color of the animals and plants Is
no accidental quality; It is Intended In dif
ferent ways to benefit its possessor in
the struggle for existence. In the case
I of flowers it has been shown that the
colors and scent serve to attract insects to
visit and fertilize them. Therefore, if In
sects can appreciate the colors of the
various flowers they must be able to
distinguish colors in the members of their
own species.
The- colors of butterflies may be divided
into four main groups: Protective colors,
warning colors, sexual' colors and the
colors of mimicry. The protective colors
enable tho butterfly to escape from Its
enemies owing to the coloring bearing
a strong resemblance to some other object,
and thus aiding concealment.
The resemblance may be to another
butterfly, or to a flower or leaf. Pro
tective coloring Is usually confined to
the under surface of the wings, which
is colored more or less like the leaves
or flowers on which the butterfly pre
ferably alights or perches.
When the wings are. folded up exposing
the under surfaces only the protection is
often very striking. In different speci
mens resemblances may be found to dead
leaves in almost every stage of decay; the
"leaf insect” resembles a bunch of leaves,
and it is hard to tell the "stick Insect”
from a group of dried twigs. The larvae,
or caterpillars of butterflies, being soft
bodied, defenseless creatures, are also
potectivrly colored.
The usual color of caterpillars Is gren,
the color of the leaves on which they feed.
Caterpillars which have the habit of feed
ing on grass aro protected by longitudinal
stripes, which facilitate concealment. At
the time when the larvae are about to
change Into pupae, or the chrysalis stage,
they usually turn a brown color to resem
ble the earth on to which they descend.
Warning colors form a remarkable
group of Instances In which the colors are
conspicuous for the purpose of warning
other Insects to keep away. Warning col
oring arises from the fact that if an ani
mal, liable to be eaten by others, has a
nauseous taste, it Is advantageous that It
should bo quickly recognized, am! hence
avoided by the animals which would other
wise eat It as food.
The butterflies possessing warning color
are generally brightly colored on both sur
faces of the wings, and they excrete Juice*
of a powerful odor which are offensive to
Insect eating animals.
In sexual coloring the more brilliant
colors of the male are explained by Dar
win as meeting the preference of the fe
male for a more brightly colored mate;
but Wallace attributes the more sober hue
of the female to the necessity of escaping
Adlers.

detection at tho critical egg-laying pe
riod.
One of the most curious points in the col
oring of Insects is that many butterflies
esape destruction by mimicking the colors
and markings of tho uneatable forms.
A large number of case* are known in
which an edible butterfly mimics and ined
ible and nauseous one, protected by Its
warning colors so closely that in many
cases It would be considered a member of
the same species.
This resemblance Is sometimes so close
as to deceive the butterflies themselves.
