Military parades are not new to Sa
vannah. but the one yesterday after
noon had features which made it of
more than passing interest.
Gov. Terrell reviewed the troops,
and it was the opening event of Car
nival week. Either one alone was suf
ficient to give an added interest to the
parade, and in conjunction they made
the event a notable one.
Besides the militia, three companies
of coast artillery from Fort Screven,
under command of Col. Anderson, and
Troop H, Seventh Cavalry, took part,
very materially contributing to the
success of the event.
By 3:45 o'clock the Fort Screven
companies were drawn up on Ogle
thorpe avenue, near Bull, the lines ex
tending east and west and facing
south. Just across the grass plot
was Troop H. Seventh Cavalry, under
command of Lieut. Lovell.

Just as the hour for the start
sounded from a neighboring clock, the
six companies of the First Regiment
arrived on Drayton street, and three
companies of the Guards on Bull
street, under command of Capt. Hut
ton. The Chatham Artillery, under
Capt. Dixon, and the Naval Reserves,
under Commander Colding, had al
ready put in an appearance, and were
drawn up between Bull and Whitaker
streets. The Hussars, Capt. Gordon
commanding were drawn up, on
Oglethorpe avenue, near the same cor
Col, Gcrdon in Command.
As Gov. Terrell was the guest of
Col. P. W. Meldrim. the senior colonel
in the city, the command of the parade
developed upon Col. G. A. Gordon, of
the First Regiment. The members of
the personal staff of Col. Gordon were
Capt. J. G. Nelson, Capt. Thomas
Hunter. Capt. J. C. Postell and Capt.
G. B. Pritchard, Jr.
First In the line came the three com
panies of coast artillery from Ft.
Screven, headed by the Ft. Screven
band. With the easy swing of regu
lars. the Ft. Screven men marched in
perfect time to the music. They were,
under command of Capts. Whitney and
Doores and Lieut. Mason.
Next came the six Savannah com
panies of the First Regiment, under
command of Lieut. Col. Grayson, and
Majors Elliott and Coney. Abel's band
furnished music for the regiment.
Three companies of the Guards, un
der command of Capt. J. A. Hutton,
the senior officer, followed, their artil
lery blue making a pretty contrast to
the army blue of the regulars and
militia. Middleton’s Band preceded
the Guards.
The Naval Reserves and the Chat
ham Artillery with three guns, came
next, followed by Troop H, Seventh
Cavalry, who will appear at the Car
nival this week. The ease with which
the men set in their saddles provoked
much comment from ihe crowd.
Closing the parade were the Georgia
Hussars. Capt. W. W. Gordon, ,Tr.,
commanding. The men were dressed
In the splendid trappings of the Hus
sars, and attracted much attention.
Liard With Spectator*.
When the order to march was Riven
at 4:15 o'clock, the streets were lined
with spectator* tor blocks, while the
window* of neighboring house* were
crowded with people. As the troops
marched away the crowd hastened up
Bull street In order to get a view of
the parade as It turned back towards
the Park Extension.
Dad by mounted patrolmen to clrtir
the streets, the troops turned north
on Drayton street. At Congress street
they turned west to Barnard, south
on *Barnard to Broughton, east on
Broughton to Bull, and south on Bull
to the Park Extension. In front of the
De Soto, the bands struck up "Dixie"
and the crowds cheered. A rest of ten
minutes was taken whan the head of
the column reached Osston street.
Rested In a carriage on the east side
of the Park Extension snd opposite the
monument, was <*ov. Terrell, the re
viewing stand being Indicated by a
small dag In front of where the car
riage stood. In the carriage with the
fjovemor were COI. P, W. Maldrlm,

A diamond robbery, upon which the
detectives have been working for sev
eral days, has been solved. 1t Is
thought, though only a part of the
diamonds have been recovered. Until
the officers got the case in shape the
robbery itself was kept a secret.
The diamonds were stolen from a
drawer in the Commercial Bank and
were the property of Mr. Barron Car
ter, the cashier. The robbery took
place some time between Oct. 4 and
20. though it was not reported to the
police until last Thursday. Six dia
mond rings and a fine Smith & Wes
son pistol were stolen from the draw
er. The rings varied in value, being
worth from $l5O to $250 each.
The theft was not discovered until
Oct. 20, when Mr. Carter had occasion
to open the drawer. There was then
no clue to the identity of the thief
or thieves. After investigating the
matter for a few days himself Mr.
Carter called in the police. Detectives
Stark and Davis have recovered two
of the rings, one valued at $l5O and
one at $250. and have arrested five ne
groes in connection with the case,
though only three of them are held
as principals. The other two, who
were wanted as witnesses, were re
leased by the officers yesterday, after
being summoned to appear in Police
Court this morning.
The three negroes charged directly
with stealing the diamonds are Clar
ence Jenkins, 14 years of age; Eddie
Banaquin, 20 years, and Nelson Den
ton, 18 years. None of the prisoners
are connected with the bank in any
way. They are supposed to have slip
ped into the bank early in the morn
ing, when the place was being clean
ed. Two of them have been identified
by a woman employed at the bank,
as having been seen hanging around
on the-outside for a number of morn
ings while she was cleaning up.
One of the rings, valued at $250, was
recovered from a negro fish vendor.
He was arrested by Detective Davis
with the ring,on his finger. The man
had obtained it from the negroes who
are to be given a hearing in Police
; Court this morning, he claimed. Cir
cumstances bore out this statement,
the officers say. and the fish vendor,
after being held at headquarters for
some time, was released. He will ap
j pear as a witness.
i Detectives Stark and Davis are still
| working on the case and think the
i other rings may be recovered. The
1 accused deny their guilt.

badly shaken up.
Mrs. Gerken fainted and her husband
devoted his attention for some time
to bringing her to. The kitchen had
been pushed along for some distance.
Only a short distance from the kitchen

Several records have already been
smashed by Savannah’s cotton trade
this season and another one went yes
terday. *
This time anew record has been es
tablished for the largest shipments
for any one day in the history of the
trade at this port. They amounted to
more than 80,000 bales, uplands and
sea islands, and their value, in round
figures, is $4,000,000.
Of course not all of the ships car
rying this enormous amount of cot
ton sailed during the day. Asa mat
ter of fact one or two of them got
away Saturday and others Sunday,
though four of them left the harbor
yesterday. Under other circumstances
these shipments would have been di
vided therefore between two days,
but because of the late clearances Sat
urday and an intervening Sunday all
the cotton not reported up to the clos
ing of the exchange Saturday after
noon is therefore included in yester
day's shipments.
Huah at September'* Close.
The tremendous rush of cotton at
the close of September bid fair to
make a record and would have done
so had it been bunched, -as was that
at the end of October, but even then
it would not have equalled the show
ing made yesterday.
Though this new record is one of
which the members of the cotton trade
are proud, it does not equal in in
terest the record made in the matter
of receipts, this port having received,
to date, more than 675,000 bales of c0t
t0n,215,000 bales more than at the corre
sponding day last season, and the
largest amount ever received for the
same period during any season.

ages, Smart alleging while he was a
passenger on one of the cars of the

The evidence of the defense largely
went to show that It was a cool night

No Objection* to Patting Track* to
One .Side. However.
President George J. Baldwin of the
Savannah Electric Company, received
a letter from a large bondholder in
his company yesterday objecting to
the removal of the Whitaker street
tracks, as had been suggested.
Objections of this kind were antici
pated by Mr. Baldwin, when the mov
ing of the tracks was brought up. If
the city really desires to have the
tracks taken up, however, Mr. Bald
win says, he is willing to do all he
can to help the city officials overcome
the many difficulties that are sure to
present themselves.
And he asks the very significant
question, “Will the city be willing to
assume the liability for all suits that
might arise from the removal of the
The city, of course, would not. Mr.
Baldwin says if he wished to move
the tracks he would, of course, be
willing to assume this liability, but
as the suggestion comes from the city,
he thinks the city should take the re
sponsibility. The city not being will
ing to do this, the plan to have the
tracks taken up will doubtless fall
Asa matter of fact, the city officials
themselves do not care about pushing
the matter now* they have been shown
how many objections there will be to
the plan. In regard to moving the
tracks to the eastern side of the street
by Forsyth Park and the Park Exten
sion, Mr. Baldwin says he has no ob
jection to the idea, if the city author
ities desire the change.
The city officials, however, do not
take much interest in the suggestion,
though It is approved by the public
generally. Mr. Baldwin says it would
not do to put the tracks on one side
of the street, except by the Park and
the Park Extension, as the property
owners on the street would want the
tracks on the side opposite.
Inspector Register Found Spirit*
Which Had Been Adnlterated,
By order of Judge Cann, Sheriff
Schwarz seized sixteen barrels of tur
pentine yesterday, on report of Naval
Stores Inspector Register to the effect
that they were ’adulterated and not
properly marked as such, according to
the laws of the state.
Thirteen barrels were consigned
the Peacock, Hunt & West Com
pany, and three to Hunter, Pearce
and Battey. The turpentine will, no
doubt be sold at public auction a.nd the
proceeds of the sale ‘added to the fine
docket of the Superior Court. The
fact that the spirits was seized as
the property of the naval stores com
panies, does not indicate they had any
knowledge of the adulteration. In fact
the law regarding adulteration w*as
passed at the instance of the naval
store dealers.

Meeting of Street* and lane* Com
mittee To-day Will Be One of
Mo*t Important Held in n Long
While—Aldermen Determined to
Make Next Year a Banner One. So
Far a* Paving la Concerned—Fight
for Feed Contract I* On.
The meeting of the Streets and
Lanes Committee, which was post
poned from Saturday until yesterday,
was again postponed and will be held
The meeting promises to be the most
important that has been held in a long
while, as besides a number of matters
that have already been announced,
the paving work for next year will be
discussed, and probably in a large
measure determined.
Whatever streets this committee de
cides should be paved next year. Coun
cil is very apt to act favorably upon.
While Council is not required to fol
low th 6 recommendations of the com
mittee in making up a schedule for
street paving, the chances are this will
be done. To begin with there are five
aldermen on the committee and this
gives it a big advantage at the start
with any proposition the committee
might unanimously recommend.
lOOfi to Be Danner Year.
So far as the paving work is con
cerned, 1905 will be made the banner
year In the city's history. This year
the appropriation for paving was cut
down by reason of the improvements
being made In other lines, but prac
tically all the aldermen agree that a
large appropriation should be given
this department for the coming year.
At the meeting to-day the committee
will discuss the paving In a general
way and some of the streets will prob
ably be determined. It will probably
be several weeks, however, before the
entire paving schedule is made up.
Many of the streets now under dis
cussion for paving have already been
mentioned. Abercorn, Price, Lincoln,
Whitaker, Bay and several of the in
tersecting streets between Bull and
Drayton streets, not already paved,
have been suggested. The matter will
be gone over thoroughly by the com
mittee before any recommendation is
made to Council. The entire work
that is to be done next year will be
agreed upon in advance and most of
the ordinances introduced in Council
about the same time.
Feed Fight I* On.
There is a lively fight on for the
reed contract for the Streets and Lanes
Department for the coming month.
Some time ago, it will be remembered,
the grain combine here went to pieces,
but recently the dealers have gotten
together again, and they now all sub
mit the same bids for the city busi
ness. There are a number of firm
claiming it Is their time to get the
During the few months the com
bine was out of business, the various
firms submitted different bids and the
contracts were awarded to the lowest
bidders. With all the firms bidding
the same, it is difficult to determine
who should be given the contract
first. It has been suggested that the
contract be given out from month to
month In alphabetical order, but those
whose names begin with letters to
wards the end of the alphabet object
to this.
The bids for the artificial stone side
walk through the Park Extension are
to be opened also.
Trouble on E. & W. Belt Line Car
Followed by Shooting.
Just as he left an E. and W. belt
car at Bay and Drayton streets early
last night, a negro fired a pistol, pre
sumably at the motorman. The man
was pursued for some distance, but
escaped. The police were later noti
The car was in charge of Conductor

Police Found the Corpse Holding
Child in Her Arms.
With a ba-by clasped in the lifeless
arms, are body of Annie Brazeman, a
negro woman, was found in her bed
at her home at East Broad and Thir
ty-sixth streets, shortly before 11
o’clock, last night by Mounted Patrol
men McCarthy and Harper, who had
gone to the house to arrest Jim Braze
rrfan, the woman’s husband.
Two small children were in the bed
with the corpse. Neither the children
nor the other occupants of the house
knew the woman was dead. The hus
band fearing arrest was hiding out,
and was also ignorant of his wife’s
death. Coroner Keller was notified and
made an investig*ation. Heart disease
is supposed to have caused the death.
The body was still warm when the
patrolmen found it, showing the wom
an had been dead only a short time.
Annie Taylor, a negro woman who
lives nearby had requested the hrrest
of Jim Brazeman for cursing her.
Awed by the presence of the dead wom
an, she asked to be allowed to with
draw the charges. .
The number of building permits Is
sued during the month just ended was
not quite so large as the number is
sued during October of last year. This
year the permits are being consolidat
ed as far as Dossible. so that the total
number Issued really means very lit
tle. Only one permit is often issued
for a number of houses. Most of the
permits during October are for re
pairs. This is always the case, as
property owners often will not fix their
houses until after the close of the
renting season.
Answering the telephone at an ear
ly hour this morning. Desk Sergeant
McCool at police headquarters was told
by an excited feminine voice to send
an officer at once to her house to get
a mad cat that was in her room.
The cat was crazy, the lady said,
and could not be made to leave her
