THEIR DIFFERENCES SETTLED. THE RROKERS AND WHOLESALE UKOIEHS NON\ \\ OHKING IX II AKMOXYL The Broker* Can >ell lo Fnnr Deni* rr> Kunnn a* Semi-Job her a, Bnt The> Atrre to op gelllnw to All the Retailer*—The Jobber* NN ill Un> AH Their f.omh From the llro her* N\ here They Can Con*ltrntly Uo So—Broker* With the Jobber* on the Boycott. The brokers and the wholesale grocers have at last reached an ami able settle ment of their differences, and are again pulling together In harness. The agreement was finally reached yes terday morning, when the committee from the brokers apt ■ art igaln ■fi rt Ing of the wholesale grocers held at the rooms of the latter organization. The Morning News gave yesterday a full ac count of the propositions that have been made on either side and the status of the situation at that time. At the brokers' meeting the afternoon before they re fused outright to accept the counter prop osition made them by the jobbers, name ly that they were to stop selling to the retailers altogether. The grocers at that time were unwilling to make any of the concessions asked for by the brokers, ■which were that they be allowed to sell to certain dealers who are known as seml jobberS, and further that the jobbers pur chase all their goods through them. The brokers' committee reported back that they were unwilling to enter Into an agreement with the wholesalers unless these concessions were made. They held that If they gave up their business with the retailers they were entitled to some thing in return, even though it might not recompense them fully for that loss. They put it on this ground, and after stating that they could not consistently sign the agreement which the wholesalers demand ed unless their demands were also acced ed to, the committee retired to await the action of the meeting. The matter was discussed by the whole sale dealers for some time. There were Some of them. In fact, quite a number, who were not inclined to concede the brok ers anything. They wanted to stand pat on the demand they had made, and on this account the question was argued for quite a while. Argument, however, finally brought the majority of them over, they agreed to grant what the brokers asked, and the agreement was drawn up. Under this agreement the brokers are to stop selling to the retail trade altogether. They had asked to be allowed to sell some of the larger retailers, but were willing to give up this demand, If their other re quests were acceded to. They are al lowed to sel lto those merchants, four of them, known as the semi-jobbers, Messrs. Tra,ub, Dieter, Slater and Doyle, whom the jobbers wanted to class under the head of retailers straight out. These dealers, w-hile they have retail counters in their stores, really do a larger wholesale busi ness than they do retail, and for this reason they are called semi-jobbers. In addition to this the jobbers agreed to buy through tho brokers all their stuff that they could consistently procure in that way. This, it would appear, is rath er an indefinite understanding, but there are certain specifications and details with regard to what It means, that the two sides do not care to make public. This, however, is a general statement of the agreement between the parties at Interest. The retailer hereafter will have to get his goods from the jobber, or buy in large lots from the manufacturer direct. The whole salers will have to get the bulk of their goods through the brokers, exceptions be ing made only In such instances where they cannot consistently do so. The brokers, as a rule, will stand to gether with the wholesalers on the matter of the I.ouisville and Nashville boycott. They both have mutual interests to pro tect, and hereafter the understanding is that they will work in harmony In all matters which appertain to the interests of both. PILGRIMAGE OF THE KNIGHTS. To the Great Triennial Conclave In Boston This Month. The members of Palestine Command ery, Knights Templar, are preparing for their pilgrimage to Boston this month on the occasion of the triennial conclave of Knights in that city, opening Aug. 27.

The conclave is expected to be the great est in the history of Templarism in Ameri ca. Besides the conclave itself and the grand parade, the occasion will be mark ed by a series of brilliant entertain ments among the Knights from various sections of the country. The Georgia Knights will be entertained by the Cali fornia Knights and other remote sections of the country will be represented in the entertainments, which wilt be of an elab orate character and marked with more brilliance than those of any conclave ever held. The Georgia Knights' headquarters will be on Massachusetts avenue on the line of the grand parade. It will be decorated with the characteristic decorations of the state and of the southern coast, cotton blossoms and bolls and Spanish moss and evergreens. The number of Knights which will make their pilgrimage from Georgia is not yet known. The officers are endeavoring to complete the list at as early u date as possible, probably within the next few days, when the final arrangements for the pilgrimage will be completed, it j<; exacted that the Palestine Commandery will send the largest number of Templars from Georgia.

The Midsummer Month Open* With a I'roMiicet for a Hot Spell. August opened up well for a hot month. The maximum temperature yesterday was i3 degrees and the lowest was 73 de grees, the mean being 2 degrees above the average. It was slightly cooler last night In Middle and Southern North Carolina, Northern and Kastern Georgia, Middle Alabama and Eastern Florida, and from 6 to 8 degrees cooler In extreme Southern Florida. In other piarts of the country it was getting hotter, the thermometer Indicat ing a rise of 2 degrees to 6 degrees. Throughout the Savannah district of the cotton belt there very few changes from the night before. With tha exception of Bainbridge ami Thomasville Savannah was the hottest place in the district. From the data compiled by Weather Observer Smyth from the weather bu reau records for the last twenty-four years, the average temperature this month ought to be about SO degrees, against 82 degrees for last month.

The Thief Arrested Admit* the Theft and I* Locked Up. A well known young man about town was arrested last night by Detective Scully and placed In the barracks on the charge of the larceny of a bicycle from Sir. D. L. Waters, the photographer. He went to Mr. Waters’ house the other day ard asked Mrs. Waters to lend him the machine. She refused to doi so, aftd while she was In the back part of the house he took it out and pawned it to Muhl berg for 38. Mr. Waters gave the young man every opportunity to get the wheel and return, it. He did not want to have him ar rested, but under the circumstances did not see how he could do otherwise. The young man admitted at the barracks last night having gone to the city exchange and collected a bill of $2.50 which was due Mr. Waters. He was arrested at his house, to which It appears he has been sticking very close since he appropria ted the wheel. The case will come up in police court this morning. The police have recovered more stolen articles from the pawnshops In the last six months than they have secured in a year or two before.

The sonthern Cotton Oil f'ouipnny Clnlm*, However. Tl.nt It Does Not A iolate the Law, as It Sell* the Meal to Daly Dae Firm for a Specific- I se—E. A'. Petit Indicted for As saulting K. F. Hoyle—An luiliet* meat Against the Assailant of Po liceman Mark's AAife—Progress in the AAny Case—Two Charter* Granted. The Southern Cotton OSI Company was Indicted In the city court yesterday for selling cotton seed meal without first hav ing it analyzed and inspected, as required under a recent act of the legislature. The matter was presented to the grand jury by Dr. A. Oemler, Inspector, under instructions from Commissioner of Agri culture Nesbitt, and a special presentment was returned. The specific case under which the Indictment was found was the sale of 3,296 sacks of the meal to Messrs. Com-r, Hull & Cos., for use in the manu facture of fertilizers, the charge being male that this meal was neither analyzed nor inspected. The Southern Cotton Oil Company ad mits the sale of cotton seed meal to Messrs. Comer, Hull & Cos., but denies that this is a violation of the law. The at torney general, it seems, has decided that under the law it Is illegal to sell cotton seed meal at all unless It is first analyzed and Inspected. Tha defendant company claims that It sells Its entire product to one firm, Messrs. Comer, Hull & Cos., for use in the manufacture of fertilizers only, and that It makes no sales of the product to private parties for consumption. The case, under these circumstances, will pre sent an interesting question, as to whether the product can be sold in this manner and under these circumstances without undergoing the analysts and inspection as required by law. It appears that the purchasers are ready and willing to take it as it is, for a certain use, and it is claimed that the extra expense of having the analysis and inspection made should not be required under these circumstances. Lizzie Clark, the negro woman, who so violently assaulted Mrs. Hattie Staik, the wife of Policeman Stark, about three weeks ago. was Indicted on a charge of assault un<l battery. According to the tes timony for the state the woman went into Mrs. Stark's house and made a most violent assault upon her, and one that was apparently unprovoked. E. V. Petit was indicted on a charge of assaulting and beating R. F. Hoyle, the grocer. The offense was committed July 20. The circumstances are as stated by the prosecutor, that Mr. Petit was pass ing his place of business when he asked him about a little account that was duo. He states that Mr. Petit then made an assault upon him without any other provo cation. A. L. Pitts, who struck R. M. Caraker on the night of July 28, was Indicted on a charge of assault and battery. Caraker was sitting on a piazza talking to a young lady. It is stated that Pitts was also pay ing attentions to her, and that he ob jected to Caraker's presence, which led to the assault. It Is probable that the Way insurance cases will get to the Jury to-night, but barely possible. It will not do to predict wdiat Is going to happen In this case. The argument on the law points involved was concluded yesterday by the attorney for the plaintiff, after which the attorney for the defense began his argument on tho law. Whom he concludes on the law he will argue the facts of the case to tho jury, after which Mr. Nlcolson will argue the facts to the Jury in behalf of the plain tiff. The Jury will have had about tw r o weeks of It by to-night, and will, no doubt, be in a very receptive frame of mind for the charge and winding up of tho whole af fair. One witness was placed on the stand yesterday in behalf of the plaintiff, Mr. Edward S. Elliott, who was examined In order to rebut the testimony of Mr. Gratz Myers, the local agent for the companies which are being sued. Mr. Elliott was down at Green Island, about twenty miles from the city, but his presence was con sidered necessary, and Sheriff W. F. Blois Was sent for him. He left the city early yesterday morning and brought the wit ness into court shortly after noon. The case has been a long drawn out one, and those Interested will no doubt be glad when It is concluded. The Dahlonega Construction Company was granted a charter by Judge Falli gant In the superior court yesterday. The incorporators are Messrs. George J. Bald win, A. W. Baeot and George Freeman. Their charter gives them the general powers granted to a construction com pany, allowing them to build and construct tramways, roads, railroads, to borrow and lend money, to buy and sell person and property, stocks and bonds, etc. The company will organize with a paid in* capital stock of SIO,OOO, and wall have the privilege of increasing the amount up to $500,000. The company will organize at once and will shortly begin operations. Judge Falligatu also granted a char ter to the Huff Pharmacal Company tn application of Messrs. Lester and Beck with, the attorneys. The incorporators are Sidney W. and E. B. Huff. The pai l in capital is to l>e SI,OUO, with the privi lege of increasing it to $3),00d. The char ter gives them the right to do a general wholesale and retail drug business. The police court did not have a very big day yesterday. The only two cases of any moment were continued until this morning for the purpose of securing oth er witnesses. Charles Lucius, colored, was charged with assault with intent to kill John John son. The two negroes were engaged in a skin game at Montgomery street and Perry street lane with several others, when they fell out ar.J Lucius fired a shot at Johnson. Both the negroes stated in court that there was a skin game going on and Johnson gave the names of the other players. Lucius also admitted the shooting. Recorder Wilson was anxious to get at the gamblers and turn them over to the city court. Their names were taken and they have been summoned to appear before him this morning. The case against Lizzie Murray, who Was brought back to Savannah from Woodburn, Ga., on a charge of stealing a pair of diamond earrings and a gold chain from the residence of Alderman J. J. Carolan, also went over until to-day. Alderman Carolan has recovered most of the stolen property and is not inclined to prosecute the girl. The case will proba bly be disposed of in one way or another this morning. Lizzie Snow, a white woman, who has arrested the night before with a little too much liquor aboard, and who cursed and abused Policeman Jernigan and a witness named Kebeeca Jones, was given ttn days in Jail to repent of her folly. There arc very few eases on the informa tion docket for a hearing this morning. Tlie license cases all went over to next Tuesday. The only other cases which wee on the docket yesterday to come up to- day, are those against Rufus Mogal, col ored. charged with careless and reckless driving, and D. J Shuman, charged with firing a pistol on the streets. Mogal drove into the buggy of Capt. John Dieter and seriously disabled it. City court Jurors are notified this morn ing that they will not be wanted until next Monday morning at 19 o'clock. Tina tpplies to all Jurors not engaged in the trial Of the Way case. ARE THEY WITH THE L. AND X'f A Claim That Some of tlie Other Stall* roads Are With the \A hole sale (iro cers. Vice President W. F. Vandiver of the Southern Wholesale Grocers' Association appeared before the Savannah associa tion yesterday morning to discuss and ad vise with them on the matter of the boycott which they are now prosecuting against the Louisville and Nashville rail road. Mr. Vajidiver talked with the grocers on the matter for about two hours and ex plained to them ways and means in which the boycott can be carried on without any prejudice to their interests. He showed them ways in which shipments could be made without using the lines of the Louisville anl Nashville. He has been to many points in the south where the boycott is being carried on, anil is highly gratified with the enthusiasm that is everywhere being manifested in the matter. Ho read communications from other points showing the strong stand they are taking in the fight, one of them being from President J. B. Maddox of the local association In Atlanta, which states that the Atlanta association Is in the fight to stay, and will prosecute the boycott as long as It lasts. Montgomery. Mr. Vandiver's home and one of the principal points in the Louisville and Nashville ter ritory, he stated, is a strong factor in the fight. Mr. Vandiver stated, among other things, that the majority of the railroads were with the wholesale grocers in the and Indorsed the stand they had taken, but sakl they could not do so open ly on account of their alliances in one way and another with the Louisville and Nashville railroad. This statement will be new to a great many, for it has been made to appear heretofore that the Plant system and other lines were standing close to the Louisville and Nashville and were taking a hand in the fight by In conveniencing the Jobbers in one way and another while they persist In the fight. Some of those interested have been as sured, however, that this is not the case, and that the other roads as a rule want to see the grocers win. The truth is, there Is more money for the railroads in the method of differentials In rates on less than carload lots than there is under the present tariffs. As the matter stands now, a country merchant can or der a small amount of any staple article, less than a carload, and have it unloaded at his town. He gets It at the same rate of freight as does the largo Jobber who buys In lots of one or several carloads. If the purchaser of less than a carload lot were* charged more freight, however, in many instances he would have to secure his stuff from the Jobber, which would necessitate its being sent back from a terminal point to the local point, giving the railroad the benefit of the local rate on the article shipped. This would bring a great deal more business Into Savannah and other cities which stand on the same footing, as the city merchants would make more and larger shipments Into The country. The job bers here say It would increase the busi ness done in Savannah K) per cent. Mr. Vandiver’s talk was a very Inter esting one for the Jobbers, and will :\o doubt prove very Instructive and benefi cial. He left the city yesterday after noon for Augusta. I'ILLKD A.\ ILLICIT STILL. Government OUlcerN Run Aeroxs It In tlie Wood* tn Kmunnel County. The I'nited States officers have Just succeeded In unearthing one of the big gest Illicit distilleries that has been op erated in this part of the state in some years. The still was and still is located in Eman uel county, near Bridge postoffice, about twelve miles from both Swainsboro and Stillmore. It is hidden in a swamp and is surrounded by trees and brush, so that it would be a hard matter to find it, unless the location were pretty well known, and the searching party was familiar with flhe country. L. y. Yeomans, who is said to lie the owner of the still, was arrested about a* week ago and carried to Augusta, where he was bound over for trial at the next term of court. He gave bond and was re leased. It is said that he has operated the still for three or four years, and has made large quantities of moonshine liquor, whtch has been dispensed in that section. William Ilennett was arrested yesterday by Deputy W. B. Jenkins near Bridge postotllce, and Jordan S. Yeomans was arrested by Deputy Marshal A. S. White ly near Nemez postoffice in Hmanuel county. Bennett was charged with work ing in the still and Yeomans with furn ishing supplies to carry it on. They were brought to Savannah yester day afternoon, and after a hearing before I'nited States Commissioner M. A. Con nolly were turned over to the eourt for trial under a bond for SIOO each. The bonds were made very light on account of tlie fact that it is not the desire of the authorities to send any one to Jail during tlie warm weather when it can be avoided, as it will likely be several months before the cases can be heard. Yeomans, who is the monied man of the crowd, signed the bonds both for himself and Bennett, and the two were released. The still was only recently discovered by the officers. I.aat Monday those Inter ested in it. fearing, perhaps, the result of the prosecutions, took out a government license and had it registered. Before that time, however, the oftteers say it has been in operation for three or four years. They state that there are about nineteen men engaged in operating it. and they have warrants against several other parties on the same charge which they have gone up to serve. It is probable that they will bring in several other prisoners to-day or to-morrow charged with working in the same still. FOR SLEEPLESSNESS, Take Horsford’s Acid Phosphate.

Hundred* o* Tbonsanili of Dollar* l,n Fl*cxvlierc fur Good* Thnt Could He Mannffictarril Here for Lei* Tlinn la Paid for Them in Other Cities—The Ficltl for Wood Work-. Ihk Plant* Almost lullmited —It I* Heine Investigated by Sorlheru Vlnnnfaeturer*. The Morning News published some time ago a very full description of the lumber industry of Savannah. It showed that $325,000 is invested in nine plants employ ing 333 hands, and that $150,000 is paid out in wages annually by this industry. The business is financially successful and all of the wood working comitanies have earn ed more than bank rates of interest on the capital Invested. As the industry seems to be a paying one and well adapted to Savannah’s resources, it will be both in.cresting to know to what extent it can be enlarged. The manufacturers* of yeast powder, soap, candy, crackers, patent medicines and others require between 100,000 to 2W.000 boxes every year for packing their pro duct. The broom factory uses about eight ear loads, each containing 40,0(A) bundles of broom handles, or over 300,000 handles every year. The value of packing boxes ranges from 8 cents to 30 cents each, and I'he broom handles from $6 to 12 per 1,000. The boxes, with ram exceptions, were shipped from Charleston, Atlanta, Chat tanooga and Nashville, Tenn., and Bal timore. The broom handles come all the way from Michigan. Savannah has u superabundance of ex cellent and suitable material within easy, reach, suc’h as maple, ash, lob loly or swamp pine, poplar, cotton wood, blackgum, etc., and the only reason why these woods are not used is because Savannah has no saw mill where the rafted logs, which are ob tainable in any quantity and at low prices, can be sawed. There are a number of sites well adapt ed and available for a sawmill in Savan nah. The capital required for such a mill is from $5,000 to SIO,<XH), and many mills are languishing in the country, which, il moved to Savannah, would earn more money in a single month than they now earn during a whole year. Every kind of logs, ash, maple, poplar, cottonwood, oak or lobloly pine can be had in immense quantities in rafts delivered at the mills at prices ranging from $3 to $lO or sl2 per thousand feet. Every load of sawdust can be sold for 25 cents per load at the mill for stable litter, every particle of slab-wood is sala ble at $3 or $4 per cord; In fact, all the re fuse lumber is of value and would find some kind of employment. The sale of these by-products would be almost suffi cient to pay for the labor employed in the mill. The lack of such a mill is the only reason why boxes and broom-handles lye not produced here, as all the machin ery necessary for their manufacture is here already, ar.d can be started in a short time, provided the suitable raw material can be obtained. A large copsumer of boxes showed the Morning News a box made from pitch pine in Savannah and also one made >n Baltimore. The weight of the yellow pine box Was just twice that of the one made in Baltimore from the most ordinary rosemary Virginia sap-pine. This sap pine is very light, when, seasoned and t.v; wood does not split when nails arc driven into it. Savannah has an enormous amount of an excellent material available, the sappy lobloly or old field pine, which can be delivered in rafts for $4 per 1.000 feet or even for less. A sawmill man would look upon such logs with the utmost contempt and dis gust, yet they are the very kind of wood required for box manufacturing, as it is light in weigth when dry, the brand can be easily embossed on It, as tHe wood is both soft and bright in color, and the wood does not split when nails are driven into it, no matter how thin it may be. The Savannah river has an abundaoe of an excellent quality of maple and ash suitable for the manufacture of broom handles. The Savannah broom factory has a complete plant of broom handle machin ery which is idle for want of material to make the handles, as pitch pine will not do. With additional manufacturing the de mand for boxes will corres pondingly increase and tens of thousands of dollars will continue to go to other cities that have fewer advantages than Savannah. The Fay & Sperry Manufacturing Com pany of Lane, Tenn., has been investi gating Savannah's advantages for bo.v manufacturing and it has been reported that they are going to start a plant here. Savannah receives every year from 250,000 to 300,000 barrels of turpentine. About 100,000 new barrels are merely coopered up and fin ished here, the actual dressing of the material being done in Charleston and elsewhere and the bulk of the profit, which is large, goes there. The price of new barrels is $1.50 each, which leaves a handsome profit on their manufacture. There are several-firms in Savannah which find it profitable to buy and ship large amounts of rough oak staves, indicating that there is ample raw material available. If Savannah has the material and the demand and the others find it profitable to manufacture the cooperage stock, why does not Savannah manufacture and supply its own legiti mate home trade, amounting to $400,000 or $500,000 a year? Charleston has shipped this sea son, already, over thirty car loads of crates made at Its veneer works. These thirty carloads were promptly bought by Savannah's truck farmers, at remunerative prices. Savan nah has veneer works. They have so far been quite successful. A couple of car penters began some ten years ago'to man ufacture cheap coffins in Atlanta. They had but little means, but plenty of pluck and perseverance. Asa result Atlanta has to-day a large ec.fln factory, giving employment to a large number of hands. The business done by this con cern was so large that the coffin trust was compelled to take It In. The most of the coffins used in Savannah are Atlanta made. The Morning News recently dem onstrated by a number of ar ticles. that the lumber can be 'had cheaper In Savannah than anywhere else, cast iron just as cheap, and wrought Iron at about the snrne prices. The Central railroad ar.d the Plant sys tern find it profitable to manufacture their own cars, and 125 cars have been built in Savannah this year. A car building plant would seemingly pay here. A cou ple of hundred thousand dollars invested in a <-ar building plant would hardly fail to prove a paying investment, giving em ployment to hundreds of hands, which would in itself add another thousand to Savannah’s population and would distrib ute another lIijO.OUO or $125,080 In wages. Savanah now manufactures successful ly the mattresses and spring beds sold by furniture dealers; why .not go a step fur ther and start a chair factory, the ma chinery for such a plant is not costly, as it is merely a full set of smaller machines. Every part that constitutes a chair is made from common split ash or oak cord wood, which is worked up on small circu lar saws, plainers, shapprs, laths, boring and mortising machines. The refuse would sell for about as much as the cost of the cord wood, $3 or $3.50 per cord at the works. The freight on chair material from Michigan to Savan nah is considerable, at any rate large enough to Insure such a margin as to yield a handsome profit in manufacturing here. The great wealth of the valuable woods existing in vast quantities in the south is now dormant. M'liy not commence to uti lize it? TO FILL THE WHARF VAGRANTS. The Police Putting; n Stop to Their I'rowliiiftM. Policeman J. B. York, who is patrolling the river front, continues to bring in the tramps and sleepers along the wharves Yesterday morning he arrested William Jenkins, who was found asleep on the wharves, and he gets one or more almost every night. Chief McDermott has determined to break up this business of sleeping on the whnrves, and it is likely that several raids cn the unwary vagrants will be made, un til they find out that the wharf rat life is a dangerous one. Norman Goldsmith was arrested and placed in the barracks yesterday on a charge of assaulting Henry Todter. George Robertson was arrested on a charge of beating his wife, Charlotte Robertson. \V. A.

The Cotton States and International Ex position will be long remembered by all who see it as the greatest exposition the south has ever seen. Those who do not see it will depend upon such records as may be left of its artistic beauty and substantial evidences of the progress that the south and its people have made during the past century. Such a work is now being complied by the Southern States Publishing Company. A book showing the past progress of the south, recording the exposition itself with beau tiful half-tone engravings of its buildings and photographs of its leading promoters and of the leading people of the south ern states, with biographical sketches of them; also accounts of the leading in stitutions of the south, its manufactures, etc., and will be of interest to all. "The Cotton States and International Exposi tion and South Illustrated," matter for which is now being compiled by the Southern States Publishing Companv will be the publication descriptive of the south, its exposition, people and resources with the finest character of engrav ings, printed upon the finest enameled paper, and bound in handsome morocco covers, with gilt edges. The work itself will be a substantial illustration of the progress of the south. The work upon it being all done in the south, It deserves to be favorably considered by the people of the south in preference to foreign publi cations. "The Cotton States and Inter national Exposition and South Illus trated” will be the representative book of the south. It Is not only of the south but for the south, and by the south The leading people of the south are in it The representatives of the above company are now in the city and will wait upon its leading citizens and explain the nature of the work. Savannah should come well to the front and should be as care fully represented as any other southern city in the above work. We trust that the opportunity may be fully realized Savannah, Ga„ July 26, 1895 To Whom It May ( oncern: I have examined the prospectus of the “Cotton States and In ternational Exposition and South’lllustra ted,” also the certificate of its publishers and the indorsement of the officers of the exposition, and other prominent men of Atlanta. From those documents and the representations of the agent of the com pany which Is getting up the work, I think I can safely recommend the publication to the patronage of the people of Savan nah. It is proposed to devote a fair pro portion of the work to a description and illustrated exposition of Savannah, com mercially, socially and otherwise To make the work useful, it is necessary that every one interested in Savannah, either In business or property, should give the work their hearty support.
