GALLERY RIFLE PRACTICE URGED BY COL. WALTER E. CONEY. SEW INSPECTOR GENERAL Or RIFI.E PRACTICE IS BACK. Conferred With Governor— Georgia Will Pay All Expense* of Rifle Team to National Mateh Next Y’ear—Thought Till* Will Greatly Stimulate Interest In Practice All Over the State—Col. Coney Wilt Urge Starting of Gallery Practice. Col. Walter E. Coney, the newly ap pointed inspector general of rifle prac tice, has just returned from Atlanta, where he conferred with the Governor and the adjutant general in regard to stimulating interest in rifle practice throughout the state. Col. Coney has not yet been com missioned, but as soon as he assumes the duties of the office he will at once begin an active campaign to arouse interest in the work. He will take the matter up with all the company commanders of the state in the hope of instituting gallery practice where ranges are not available. There are many difficulties at pres ent to overcome. The lack of ranges and the expensiveness of the ammuni tion are the principal obstacles in the way of extensive practice. Col. Coney hopes, with the co-operation of the company commanders of the state, to be able to overcome both of these in time and while working for ranges and a decrease in 'the cost of ammuni tion he wants to inaugurate gallery practice wherever possible. National Match Team. Gov. Terrell, Col. Coney states, has decided to again send a Georgia team to the national rifle match, which was held this year at Fort Riley. It has not yet been determined where the match will be held next year, but it is thought it will be near New York. It is the intention of the state to pay all the expenses of the team that is sent. With such a prize in view, Col. Coney thinks the men of the state militia should work hard to perfect themselves in rifle shooting. It will be a splendid trip, and the team will be selected entirely on the records made in practice. The men who show them selves to be the best shots will be chosen. Coat of Ammunition, The high cost of the ammunition for the Krag rifles, and the inability of the state to supply it to the troops in very large quantities, seriously handi caps the work at present. The Krag cartridges can not ‘be reloaded and the government only gives 11 per cent, of loaded shells for the empties. Thus, for every ion empty shells returned only 11 loaded are issued. Even if there were sufficient ranges for the troops to practice on the high cost of the ammunition would probably pre vent as much practice as is desired, until the state is able to make a larger appropriation for ammunition. For the gallery practice cheaper am munition may be used. With the Bray ton auxiliary cartridge an ordinary Smith & Wesson 32 long may be used in the Krags for gallery work, the Smith & Wesson cartridge being placed inside the auxilliary cartridge. There is still another auxilliary cartridge, samples of whioh have been furnished the Adjutant General's office, that mav be used. Begin „„ Galleries. Col. Coney's idea is to have the prac tice begin in the galleries and later be continued on the ranges. He thinks if once the practice is well under way interest will be aroused to secure the ranges where they are not now avail able, as is the case in Savannah. All the features of range practice can he simulated in the gallery, Col. Coney says, except weather and light condi tions. For the beginner the gallery practice will be Invaluable and it can be had at a greatly reduced cost. One having perfected himself in gal lery practice would be a fairly good range shot from the very first Col Coney says. He Intends to ask the aid and co-operation of all the offi cers of the state in arousing interest in the practice. It will probably be some time before Col. Coney is ■com missioned, as he has not yet stood his examination, but as soon as he does receive his commission he intends to communicate with the commanders throughout the state, urging them to take up the gallery practice at once. OFF IC eWTrI GHTENED BURGLARS AT WORK. Were Trying to Effect an Entrance to SenimeM Hardware Cos. Shortly after 2, o’clock yesterday morning Patrolman Reisen heard a noise in the vicinity of the back door of the Semmes Hardware Company's building on Williamson street, and on turning the corner in the rear of the building he saw two negroes running down towards th river. One of the windows of thg building had been forced open and the burglars were trying to move an obstructing Iron bar out of the way. In their hasty departure they left a pinch bar behind. Patrolman Reisen reported the atTair after hanging around for sev eral hours to see whether the men would return. He carried the pinch bar to police headquarters.

Tb# aaa in Laurel Orov# Wmjft STRUCK BY A RATTLESNAKE BEFORE HE COULD DODGE. Frank J. Glffruida’n Presence of Mind Saved HU Life. While walking on the Isle of Hope road yesterday afternoon, Mr. Frank J. Giffruida was bitten by a ground rattlesnake on the calf of the left leg. Mr. Giffruida was returning from Judge Norwood's house, and was on his way to take a car at Baker’s Cross ing. He encountered a snake about three feet long In his path, and within striking distance. The realization of his danger, so completely paralyzed him he was unable to move and avoid the strike which the snake was coiled to deliver. Mr. Giffruida says even after the snake struck him, he was too badly frightened to make a move to kill it, and it disappeared in the bushes. His presence of mind was probably the on ly thing that saved his life, for as soon as he realized he had been bit ten he sucked the blood from the wound and then went to a negro's house near by, where he obtained some whisky. He also bathed the wound with turpen tine, and tied his leg with his neck tie. He caught the next car for the city, and went at once to the office of Dr. J. O. Baker, where he had the wound cauterized. The swelling was reduced last night, and Dr. Baker stated while there is still some danger, Mr. Glffruida’s pres ence of mind probably saved his life. LOST PLANS DELAYED THE EMMET PARK WORK. Driveway Will Be Started This Morning. However. Because the plans for the improve ment of Emmet Park could not be found Saturday, the staking off of the driveway through the park h'.xd to be postponed. The plans, which jlwero only misplaced, have been found and the work will be started this morning. The second set of plans drawn, pro vide for a roadway that will not in terfere with the trees in the park, and have been adopted by the city. The driveway after entering the park at either end will run parrallel to and twenty-five feet from the retaining wall on the northern side of the park. Between the driveway and the retain ing wall, will be a walk eight feet wide. Between this fight foot walk and the retaining wall there will be a grass plat with cross-walks to each of the entrances to the offices. The lay ing out of the driveway and the walks is all the work contemplated' by the city at present, though the park will be further Improved early next year. A special appropriation will probably be made by Council for this purpose. The force in the city engineer's office will first lay out the lines for the road and walks, and as soon as the lines are staked off the laying of the curbing will be begun by the director of public works. The work will only take a short time, it is thought, as all the curb stones are already on the ground. The first set of plans drawn for the improvement of the park had the drive way next to the retaining wall on the northern side of the park, but it was found that this plan would necessitate the cutting down of many of the pret tiest trees. For this reason it was abandoned and a driveway, twenty five ‘feet south of the retaining wail was decided upon. THREW CAYENNE PEPPER INTO WOMAN’S EYES. Serious ( barge* Entered Against Two Negro Women Yesterday. Blinded, ahd screaming in agony, Julia Thomas was held at police head quarters early yesterday morning as a witness against Clifford Radcliff and Mamie Larker. who had assaulted her.

JAILER ABSENT: * WENT HUNTING TOOK PRISONER WITH HIM. DETECTIVE BOSTICK GOT MORE BIRDS THAN HIS MAN. I. I. Wiggins, Who Wnn Cnder Ar rest, Hns Hnil Innnnal Experience in Trial of Misdemeanor Case. Was First Arrested Here While Acting as Motorinan on a Trolley Car—Was Indicted at lilaekshear for Cursing Before Imdles. Finding no one at the jail to receive a prisoner which he had to deliver to the authorities at Blackshear Satur day morning, Detective R. B. Bostick secured ammunition and gun for the prisoner and himself and went hunt ing, spending a very pleasant day in the woods, with fairly good luck. The plain clothes man had I. I. Wig gins, a young white man wanted at Blackstiear, in charge and, having known him some time, felt no hesi tancy in “taking a chance” with him. Wiggins has figured very prominent ly, in a rather unique manner, with officers of the law. He was indicted at Blackshear for cursing in the pres ence of ladies. He left Blackshear and came to Savannah, where he secured a position as motorman with the Sa vannah Electric Company. While in the discharge of his duties he was ar rested. The arrest was made while Wiggins was waiting for some passen gers to board a Habersham street car. He was forced to leave the car by the arresting officer, and another man was called from the street railway head quarters to take his place. An officer was summoned from Blackshear to take Wiggins back for trial. The prisoner was duly turned over to the officer, and while waiting for an outgoing train the officer par took too freely of some enliving fluid, and went off and forgot his prisoner. Wiggins returned to police headquar ters with the handcuffs still on him, and was later released on bond furnish ed by Mr. Ed. O’Connor, claim agent for the street railway company. When summoned to appear at Black shear for trial at the recent term of court Wiggins failed to appear, and he was arrested. Detective Bostick be ing assigned to the duty of taking the prisoner back to the Blackshear authorities. “When we arrived at Blackshear,” the plain clothes man said, "there were only two or three people on the street. I asked at the jail for the sheriff. There was no one there hut a wom an. and I did not feel like turning my prisoner over to her. I knew Wig gins was all right, and sent him off to get his breakfast, while I went to my sister’s house to get mine. "When I returned Wiggins was wait ing for me. and as the sheriff lived several miles in the country, and I had decided to go hunting that day, I secured gun and ammunition for Wfcggins and we went hunting!. I beat him shooting, killing twelve birds, while he only got one. He says, like all good sportsmen, that I outclaim ed him.” After the hunt was over the prisoner was again manacled and turned over to the sheriff in good order. U. S. MARSHAL*WHITE ARRIVED LAST NIGHT. Jndge Emory Speer Han Engaged Rooms at the De Soto. All of the officers of the United States Court were expected to reach Savannah yestefday and there were many inquiries at the hotels for dif ferent officers. The only one to arrive, however, was Marshal George F. White, who registered at the De Soto. Marshal White is accompanied by Mrs. White and their little daughter. United States Commissioner W. M. Johnson arrived last night and registered at the De Roto. A telegram from Judge Emory Speer was received at the De Soto announc ing that he would reach Savannah on the early train from Macon this morn ing and asking that rooms be reserved for him. His old quarters were set aside. District Attorney Alexander Akerman, Assistant Storer, and Offi cial Reporter J. N. Talley have en gaged rooms at the Pulaski House, and will reach the city this morning. Chinese Inspector Eager arrived yesterday and spent the afternoon in consultation with Special Assistant Attorney General William R. Leaken. Mr. Leaken was busily engaged in the preparation of his cases that will go before the grand jury. Court will con vene this morning at 10 o'clock and the programme announced In the Morning News will be carried out. GREEK BURiEIfwiTH METHODIST CEREMONY. Rev. EX P. Morgan Conducted Service at Grave of I’ailnkl. As It was impossible for the Rev. Archimandrite Kallinlkos. a. Greek Orthodox priest of Birmingham to be present yesterday, the funeral services over the remains of Thomas Padaki, the young man who was asphyxiated in his room at West Broad street and Perry lane, Friday morning, were con ducted by Rev. E. F. Morgan, pastor of Grace Methodist Church. The funeral services and interment were conducted at Laurel Grove Ceme tery in the presence of an unusually large number of people, most of whom were those of the same nationality as Padaki. In addition to the regular service pronounced by Rev. Mr. Mor gan. friends of the dead man made remarks in Greek. The floral offerings were numerous. The following act ed as pallbearers: Messrs. Peter Bar bour, Eli Veruki. Nicholas Papadea, A. Tassoponlas, G. Haldopoulos and George Christopher. BIIKR PATRIOT SPOKE. Rev. Epke R.

BUSY TIME AHEAD FOR CITY OFFICIALS. niidget Will Keep Mayor and Aider men n* Work. From now until the end of the year, the city officials will be kept busy, closing up the work for 1904 and plan ning for 1905. With the next meeting of Council, the actual work of preparing for 1905 will begin, though there is a great deal of preliminary figuring to be done before the meeting. The tax ordinance will be read for the first time. All the departments will this week make up an estimate of their ex penses for next year and submit them to the Mayor. These estimates will be used in making up the budget. Appli , cations for Increased appropriations, however, will probably all be turned down. It is the intention of Mayor Myers to pay not only for the completion of the City Hall next year, but also for furnishing it. In order to do this It will be necessary to practice the strict est economy in all the departments. It is the Mayor’s idea to have all the ap propriations next year about the same as for 1904. There will be an in creased appropriation for paving, but all the other regular appropriations will probably remain the same. Mayor Myers is now having esti mates made of the cost of completing and furnishing the City Hall. There is quite a lot of work that will have to be done on the building that is not included in the contract. This Is now being estimated by Architect Wit cover. When these figures are available the total amount that the city will have to spend on the City Hall can be es timated. This will be treated as a certain expense and will be considered in making up the budget. The amount of money the city will have at its dis posal will be greater than ever before, not only because of the increasing in come, but also because of the large balance that will be carried over. Al derman Dixon, the chairman of the Finance Committee, estimates this balance at not less than $12,000. NEW TAX ORDINANCE TO BE INTRODUCED. (.’lmage In Liquor License the Only One Proposed So Fnr. Only one change In the tax ordinance for next year, which is to be intro duced by the Committee of the Whole at the next meeting of Council, has so far been suggested, and this relates to the liquor licenses. The present ordinance, except for the change in the year, will 'be introduced for 1905 and any changes that are to be made will come later in the form of amendments. Even the liquor license plause will :be the same in the ordi nance to be read at the next meet ing. * The city now charges S2OO for a liquor license, but allows the dealers to give notes bearing the legal rate of interest. It is,proposed to increase the license and give a, discount for prompt payment. The license will be so increased that even with the pro posed discount for prompt payment, 10 per cent., each license will net the city S2OO, as is now the case. Those who do not pay for the licenses at once will have to pay more. Other minor changes will probably be decided upon later. A special meeting of Council will be called to consider the ordinance after the regular meet ing on Dec. 7. IN PREPARATION FOR GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY. oi People’s Promnlgatinn Special Services Will Be Held. The novena in preparation of the ob servance of the feast in honor of the golden anniversary of the promulga tion of Pope Pius IX of the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, will begin at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on Tuesday night. Special devotions will be conducted at that hour by Rev. Farther Kennedy, rector of the Cathedral. Similar serv ices will be held every night there after at 8 o’clock until the feast of the golden anniversary. The other Roman Catholic churches of the city will hold similar services, a’s announced by the rectors yesterday morning. The pastoral letter of Rt. Rev. Bish op Benjamin J. Kelley, calling for es pecially elaborate services, was first published in the 'Morning News several months ago. The complete programme for the observance will be announced later. High massf will be one of the features of the observance of the doc trine which was first promulgated by Pope Pius IX on Dec. 8, 1854. BANK BUILDING WORK CONTINUED ON SUNDAY. Was Danger of Exposed Sewer lit Excavation Giving Way. Work on the new National Bank building was continued yesterday morn ing until about 11 o'clock. There was danger of an exposed sewer in- the ex cavation giving way and for this rea son the work was continued Sunday. Concrete has now been laid and it is not thought there Is any more danger from the sewer. The concrete will be allowed to set tle until to-morrow and the work will then be renewed. Mr. Richardson, in charge of the work, says he thinks the walls will be to the level of the street by the first of the year. The material is arriving as fast as It can be used and the work is progressing rapidly. Steel for the foundations is already on hand and the other steel is expected to arrive between Jan. 1 and 10. WILL RESUMFEFFORTS FOR HARBOR IMPROVEMENT. The movement to secure a 30-foot channel for the Savannah harbor at mean low water, which was started last winter, will be resumed at once now that Congress Is about to meat again. Mayor layers Intends to send letters to all the members of the Committee on Harbor Appropriations, whioh Is to have a meeting to-day. Col. Lester has already gone to Washington to at tend this meeting. Before leaving he conferred with the Mayor In regard to the work for the Savannah harbor. The Mayor will follow up the work done last winter with letters to the committee, urging upon the members th* Importance of the work. Burnett's Vsnllta Extract has out lived criticism.

JORDAN IN' REPLY TO QUESTION' ON THE STATESBORO LYNCHING. “Spirit of Mob I* Spirit of Anarch; and BarbnrtnTii—Majesty and Dig nity of Law .Most Be Sustained ut Any Price—Most Deplorable Ef fect* Come After Actual Lynching. Men Often Exhibit Spirit of Cow ards Daring the Investigation.’’ Mob law and lynching, and the ac tion of the recent grand Jury of the Superior Court, were discussed last night by Rev. Dr. John D. Jordan in his sermon at the First Baptist Church. Both questions came up as a result of the question box, which was opened last night by the pastor. In reply to the question, “What do you think of lynching and mob law as shown by the Statesboro affair?” Dr. Jordan said: “Lynchings and mob law are always to be deplored. Mob violence, as best exemplified by lynching, is wrong and should be condemned by all good citi zens. The man who Is always imbued with their spirit is imbued with the spirit of anarchy and barbarism and not with the spirit of law. Beginning with the one unnameable crime, lynch ing has spread to other crimes, and often men are lynched for the most trivial offenses. Lyncher a Murderer. "Though lynching is not confined to the South, its prevalence in this sec tion of the country should lead South erners to arouse themselves against it, and do ail in their power to put it down. “The dignity and majesty of the law must be sustained at any cost. If it is not, the lives and property of no one are safe from the violence of the mobs which may form at any minute when there is the slightest provocation. “The man who takes life under the guise of mob law is a murderer. It may be that the law itself, in due time, would have taken that life, but he who takes life without due process of law is imbued with the spirit of lawless ness, and is a murderer. Lynching and Cowardice. “The most deplorable feature of lynching comes after the actual lynch ing. Under the excitement of the mo ment, smarting under the wrong that has been committed against a neigh bor or a neighbor's family, a man may be carried away and, all enraged and indignant, assist in a lynching. Later, when the excitement has cooled down, he may repent of his action. Repent ance should follow- all lynchings. “But when the lynching is over and when the legal investigation sets in, men too often appear unwilling to stand forth and acknowledge their part in it. When lying and perjury are resorted to to evade the punishment for the part they took in a lynching, men appear as cowards trying to evade the law rather than as brave men trying to uphold the law and protect them selves and their neighbors from out rages.” Action of Grand Jnry. . In reply to the question, "What do you think of the action of the recent grand Jury In reference to the evi dence presented to it by the Ministe rial Association?” Dr. Jordan said: “In view of the evidence furnished them I think the action of the recent grand jury was weak, wrong and in defensible. It is not the business of any grand juror to decide whether or not a man ought to be punished. Grand jurors are not lawmakers. The laws are already made. It is not in the province of the grand Jury to even say whether the laws violated are good laws or bad lanvs. All they have to determine is whether existing laws are being violated, and if they find they are, they should return a true bill. "If a grand juror does not believe an existing law- should be enforced, then he should ask to be excused from duty, just as a petit juror in a murder trial who does not believe in capital punishment. This is the proper course to pursue, and not to merely fail to indict. Showing Law* are In wine. “The refusal to indict cannot be ex cused on the ground that there are many violators of the law. If a man is shown to have violated the liquor selling laws, the fact that there are 100 violating the same law Is no reason why an indictment should not be returned. The fact tha* there are fifty violating the gaming laws is no reason why an indictment should not be returned against one gambler. And so with all the other laws. "If existing laws are unwise, the surest way to show their unwisdom is to enforce them. Prosecute all who violate them and in time, if the laws are unjust, a sentiment will arise that will work for their repeal. That is the proper course to pursue, rather than a failure to indict." Other QacHtlon* Dl*en**eil. Among the other questions taken up was whether hanging is the proper punishment for murder. The pastor took the ground that It is, in some cases, but should never be imposed in cases made out on circumstantial evi dence. Life Imprisonment, he claimed, is a punishment sufficiently severe, and it also gives the murderer opportunity to repent of his sin before he meets his God. As to the question regarding being a Christian and a church member. Dr. Jordan stated that Christ had not made church membership a condition of salvation. Faith is the only thing necessary to be saved. Yet, he said, though Christianity is not dependent on church membership, a man or wom an can be better Christians In the church than out of K.
