Even If the Proposed Trip la Aban

inet Will Probably Be Invited
Here. When the Sew City Hall Is
Opened—Mayor Myers Says Ther£
Is no Oeeaslon Sow for the City
to Invite Mr. Roosevelt.
If President Roosevelt decides upon a
trip South as is thought, he will be In
vited to come to Savannah.
Mayor Myers made this announce
ment yesterday, though he said just
at this time there is no occasion for
the city to issue an invitation.
An invitation from the trade bodies
here at this time might be all right, the
Mayor thinks, but he does not believe
the city should issue an invitation un
less there is some special occasion. If
the Southern trip is positively deter
mined. the Mayor says Savannah will

“I think it would be a very desira
ble thing to have the President come
to Savannah," said Mayor Myers. I
think he would understand the people
better after a visit to a Southern

the President was suggested. Mayor
Myers had been thinking of inviting
the President and the cabinet to visit
the city on some special occasion.
He intimated yesterday that this
might still be done, regardless of
whether the trip now proposed is made.

the city officials at all yet, it is known
that the completion and opening of
the Citv Hall will be marked with
elaborate ceremonies.
The occasion will be a gala one, as

The probabilities are that President
Roosevelt and his cabinet officers will
be invited to visit the city at that time,
as guests of the city, though an invita

Among the Improvement* Proposed
for Next Tear ly City.
Among the minor improvements con
templated by the city officials for next
year is the laying of an artificial atone
sidewalk on Oglethorpe avenue adjoin
ing Colonial Park. The brick walk is
badly worn and the new pavement is
Now that the city offices are located
at police headquarters, the walk is
used a great deal, not only by the
city officials and employes, but also by
the public generally. The walk, bound
ed on either side by beautiful palmet
tos, is naturally one of the prettiest
In the city. With a stone pavement
It would make one of the most attrac
tive promenades in the country.
It is also proposed to move the poles,
which mar the beauty of the avenue of
palmettos. Those officials who favor
the improvement say the walk can eas
ily be made the prettiest in the coun
try. Connecting with the cement walks
already laid in the park, it will make
the park itself much more attractive.
Deputy Marshal Expect* to Find
Healthy Increase In Trade.
The annual business census, which Is
pepared by the city, was started by
Deputy Marshal Hussey yesterday. It
will probably take a week or more to
complete the census, though a large
section of the city was covered in the
day's work.
"X, of course, have not yet progressed
far enough to tell how it is going to
turn out this year,” said Deputy Hus
sey, “but I am satisfied there will be
quite an increase in almost all lines
of trade shown. The new places I
know of having been opened during the
year leads me to this conclusion.”
The business census is prepared for
use by the marshal’s office in collecting
specific taxes. A classified list of ev
ery individual and firm In the city en
gaged in business is made so they may
toe readily found when licenses become
Ilreet* and l.ane* Feed Order Goes
to Ontnide Firm.
The grain combine received another
blow yesterday, when bids for furnish
ing the Streets and Lanes Department
of the city with feed for the month of
December, were opened. This contract
as well as the one for furnishing the
Are department with feed, was lost by
the members of the combine.
Dougan & Sheftall were awarded the
Streets and Lanes contract. There
were only three firms to submit bids.
Two of the firms named prices that
■were the same. The bid of Dougan -i
Sheftall was much lower and the con
tract was given that firm.
The loss of city contracts will prob
ably break up the combine for a time.
Several months ago firms outside the
combine entered bids and broke it up
for a time. After a few w3ks, how
ever, the combine again got together.
Mr. W. J. B. Adams, while riding- a
bicycle on Bryan gtreet, near Bull,
early yesterday afternoon was run Into
by an automobile of the Electric Sup
play Company, knocked from his wheel
and badly bruised. The bicycle, which
new, was demolished. The auto
mobile was driven by a negro. Mr.
Adams claims the accident was due to
carelessness on the part of the driver
of the machine.

"Chairman Daffln of the Park and
Tree Commission is for all the world
like an old setting hen that has lost
all of her chickens—He's always
scratching for trouble.”
The above from Chairman of Coun
cil James M. Dixon yesterday was
prompted bv the fact that Chairman
Daflin of the Park and Tree Commis
sion had stated, in an Interview in
the Morning News, that only the squir
rels put in Forsyth Park by the Com
mission are there, and that he had seen
nothing of the Baltimore squirrels.
"Chairman Daffin is always looking
for trouble,” said Alderman Dixon,
“but I cannot permit his latest state
ment to pass unnoticed. I know he is
never happier than when rowing with
somebody connected with the city gov
ernment, and while I dislike to give
him the pleasure of knowing he has
managed to pull a shot or two from me
I cannot, under the circumstances, re
frain from having a word to say.
"The readers of the Morning News
knew that several gray squirrels were
to be shipped me by the authorities in
Baltimore, and they knew when they
arrived. I was accompanied by a rep
resentative of the Morning News when
I released the squirrels in the park.
They were carried out in a wagon from
the police department. Now it may
be true that Chairman Daffin has not
seen them. But there are so many
things he does see there is no wonder
a little thing like a squirrel should be
“Still the squirrels have not starved,
because the very excellent chairman
of the Park and Tree Commission has
not seen them. No indeed, for quite
a number of people have told me they
have seen the squirrels, and some of
them have induced the little fellows to
eat what has been offered. The squir
rels from Baltimore are much larger
than those that were put into the park
by Mr. Baffin's commission.
"Of course I know Mr. Daffin is not
jealous of the Baltimore squirrels, and
I am equally as certain he is glad to
have citizens, or even city officials, put
the proper sort of pets in the parks and
squares. This takes me back to where
I started. Chairman Daffln appears
never to be happy unless he is in a
quarrel with someone.”

Negro I*nt Victim'* Body in Wheel
barrow and Carried It Home.
Coroner Keller yesterday morning
investigated the killing of Albert Har
ris by Stephen Bond at Montgomery
Tuesday night, and decided that the
killing was purely accidental, the facts
showing that the boys were engaged
in a scuffle for a gun. No report of
the tragedy was made to the authori
ties until yesterday morning.
Both of the boys were about 12
years of age, and were scuffling for the
possession of a gun which belonged to
Robert Barney, aged 15 years. Ac
cording to statements made to the cor
oner the gun was accidentally dis
charged, the entire load entering Har
ris' right side, tearing him to pieces.
Coroner Keller says the slayer did
not run away after he had killed Har
ris, but put him in a wheelbarrow and
carried him to the dead boy’s home.
Deputy Sheriff Meldrlm was detailed to
go out and investigate the case, and
if possible to arrest the slayer. Up
to a late hour he had not reported.
Announcement was made yesterday
by the officials of the Southern Bank,
that Mr. Joseph Hefternan, correspond

Mr. Hefternan is a popular young
man, both socially and in a business
way, and the announcement of this
much merited promotion will be a
source of gratification to his friends.
Mr. Hefternan first became connected
with the Southern Bank in 1890, and
has been gradually promoted to his
present responsible position.

Senator-elect John E. Foy of Egypt
was in the city yesterday morning to
answer a subpoena to appear before
the United States grand jury. Mr.
Foy was present when the grand jury
met, but was not called before that

no indictment was returned in alleged

How City Department* Will Stand
nt End of Year—Some of Them
Will Have Small Balance*, hut
Only Waterworks Department
Will Carry Over u Large Sum—Offi
cial* Are Beginning to Figure on
Next Year’* Budget.
The careful watch which Mayor
Myers is keeping on all the depart
ments of the city has disclosed the fact
that a number of them are already
overdrawn and that others will be be
fore the end of the year.
The Mayor has given instructions
that the bills of all the departments
that have used up their appropriations
be held up until they are submitted
to him, and only expenses that are
absolutely necessary are to be allow
Among the departments that are
overdrawn, or will be before the end
of the year, are the health department,
fire, the police, the harbor and
wharves, house drainage, house drain
age maintenance and storm sewers.
Other of the departments have a very
narrow margin and some of them may
exceed their appropriation. To avoid
this, if possible, Mayor Myers is care
fully watching all bills.
Financial Statement.
A financial statement of all the de
partments, showing the appropriations
and the amounts that have been spent,
will be prepared for the Mayor as soon
as the bills for the next meeting of
Council are put in. A similar state
ment was prepared just before the last
meeting, and It was then learned for
the first time that some of the depart
ments had gone beyond their appropri
Though the number of departments
to overdraw this year is larger than
usual, the total amount is not excep
tionally large. The fire department will
exceed, its appropriation by almut sl,-
500. This department has the distinc
tion of always overdrawing. The po
lice appropriation will be exceeded by
a small sum, probably not over S2OO or
S3OO. The overdraft in the health de
partment will probably be larger, but
the exact amount is not known.
How Other* Stand.
House drainage will be overdrawn
about $2,000 and house drainage mainte
nance only a small sum. Storm sewers
will be overdrawn something like SI,OOO
probably less. The overdraft for har
bor and wharves is only slight.
The waterworks will carry over a
good balance, the largest of any of
the city departments. The City Mar
ket now has a small sum on hand and
it is not thought this will be over
drawn. The dispensary likewise has
a small balance. A small portion of
the appropriation for incidentals will
be carried over. The scavenger depart
ment and the streets and lanes de
partment will each be within its ap
propriation, it is thought. The appro
priation for the scavenger contract with
the street railway company has been
exceeded, but this is due to the fact
that the county has not paid its share
of the money.
Preparing for Budget.
The officials arp now preparing to
got to work on the budget for next
year. When the statement showing
the condition of each of the depart
ments is prepared for the Mayor, it
will bo made up on a blank with
spaces left for next year’s appropria
tions. The aldermen can then see,
while they are deciding about next
year's appropriations, just how each of
the departments came out this year.
The actual work on the budget will
not begin until after the next meet
ing of Council, but already the officials
are at work. The moat important item
in next year’s appropriations will be
the sum set aside for the City Hall.
Until this amount is determined noth
ing will be decided about the budget.
It is known, however, that any in
crease in regular appropriations will be
opposed by the Mayor, and it Is not
believed any will be made.
Jane Brown swore out a warrant
for attempted assault against Isaiah
Jones before Justice Wickham yester
day. Jones is charged with attempt
ing to strike the woman with an ax.
The trouble arose because Jane, with
out the permission of Isaiah, used his
blanket Monday night. Isaiah claims
when he recovered the blanket and used
it Tuesday night, the possession of
his bed was disputed by strange bed
fellows. When he mentioned the fact
next morning, Jane did not seem to
like the insinuation. By way of ex
pressing her extreme dislike for his
remarks, she caught him in the collar
ahd proceeded to give him a strenuous
lecture. Isaiah remonstrated by pick
ing up an ax with the mild intention
of stopping Jane. He was prevented
from carrying out his intentions, it is
alleged by several negro women.
A determined effort is being made
by the police to stop the continued vi
olations of the bicycle ordinances
which have been much In evidence re
cently. Riding on sidewalks and rid
ing at night without a light are the
chief offenses complained of.
John Cuthbert was arraigned in Po
lice Court yesterday morning on the
charge of riding on the sidewalk and
also with not having a lamp on his
bicycle after dark. He was fined $3
or five days.

Mayor Myers Favor* Repairing the
Street With Brick.
Now that the Gaston street paving
case has been withdrawn from the
United States court it is probable the
street will be paved with vitrified brick,
as was proposed in the ordinance to
which the residents objected.
It is not thought that the residents
will again object to the pavement. A
number of them, who formerly op
posed it, have expressed themselves as
not objecting to it now. The city de
sires to pave the street and will do
so if there is no objection from the
property owners. It has been suggest
ed that the owners be credited, when
the street is paved, with the amounts
paid on the old shell pavement, but
it is not believed the aldermen will
agree to this.
Mayor Myers stated yesterday that
he favored repaving the street. The
pavement now down will be examined
by the proper officials, the Mayor says,
to see if anew pavement is needed.
If they report it is needed, an ordi
nance for the paving of the street will
be introduced. If the property own
ers should make serious objection to
the pavement, the city will not press
the matter, the Mayor says.
"There are too many streets where
the owners want the paving,” explain
ed the Mayor, “to bother with this
street if the owners are against it.
I think the street should be paved,
though, and I doubt if there will be
the same objection this time.”
Isaac 'Whitehead Called Heavenly

stances he thought a light sentence
should be imposed. He sentenced the
prisoner to pay a fine of SIOO or serve

The feature of the case was the way
the old man plead his cause. His voice
was loud and his gestures wild, and his
expressions were far from those usual
ly heard in a court room. A plea of
guilty was entered by counsel for the
old man and then, when asked to
make a statement he said:
"In the name of God, before the most
noblest man In our state, I am thank
ful to know I’m prepared to talk for
myself, trusting in the Lord and pray
ing that everyone in this house may
take notice of what I say. In the name
of the Lord in 1865, I was mustered
in as a soldier and in ’66 was muster
ed out and come home.
“I made application for pension dur
ing Mr. Harrison’s term, but let it
lull during Mr. Cleveland’s term. In
Mr. McKinley's term I made it again.
They say I haint got good sense. My
head has been busted open and I lost
part of my wit. I know by the way
tt comes and then goes away from
me. If I have done something dis
legal, I don’t know it and I don’t aim
to do nothing wrong. In the name
of the Lord, amen.”

Owing to the desperate nature of the

Deputy Sheriff Britt Says There IB
no Doubt of the Identity of the
Negro as He Made a Confession
When It Was Mentioned He Would
Be Taken to Augusta for Identifi
cation—. Jefferson Still Strenuously
Denle* Hl* Guilt.
Miss Zadie Bouyer, accompanied by
her brother, is expected in Savannah
to-day to identify Charles Jefferson, the
negro who was brought to Savannah
from Augusta Tuesday for safe keep
ing. Miss Bouyer was expected yes
Jefferson strenuously denies he is the
man wanted, but Officer Britt, who
brought him to Savannah says he is
the man. When seen by a Morning
News reporter yesterday Jefferson
made a statement which was confus
ing. He talked at random, referring
to the crime with which he is accused
as little as possible. He said he was
at a brick yard near the young lady’s
home when he was arrested and had
been there some time. He said he
could, prove this by several witnesses.
According to Deputy Britt’s story
when Jefferson was arrested by Coun
ty Policeman Belden his first question
was what he was wanted for. The
officer told him he would find out pret
ty soon. When Deputy Britt started
to the jail with the man to have him
identified by Miss Bouyer he confess
ed he was the man and begged not
be carried to the city, it is alleged.
After a hasty consultation over the
telephone with Judge Eve the prisoner
was driven to Mcßean, a small station
on the Central of Georgia Railway,
and brought to Savannah.
Was Alone In Houne.
According to Deputy Britt’s state
ment, Miss Bouyer was alone in the
house at the time. The door was
standing open at the side entrance and
she was near it. Jefferson came to
the door and asked if she had any
wood to cut. She replied in the nega
The negro still stood about, and Miss
Bouyer attempted to close the door.
Jefferson spra lg forward, grabbed Miss
Bouyer and endeavored to close the
door. The young lady, very much
frightened, struggled to free herself
from the negro's grasp, and almost at
the same time began to scream.
The negro made a desperate effort to
cut off her screams by choking her. Al
though leaving his finger prints on her
neck, he was evidently unsuccessful in
securing the proper hold on her. He
also tried to gag her by forcing his
hand into her mouth. Miss Bouyer
continued to scream and tried to bite
his hand.
How Negro Eneaped.
Failing to stop her screams, ni:d
knowing help would soon tie oh' the
scene, Jefferson pushed her to the
flodr, and dashed out of the house. He
was met on the sidewalk i>y several
men, who asked him what the trouble
was; and he replied that someone was
beating his wife.
The men were thrown off by this
statement and hurried on to the house,
letting the negro go. Jefferson ran to
Greene street and disappeared. When
the men heard the true story he was
oui of sight. The alarm was quickly
given and a crowd gathered.
Mr. Bouyer was notified and imme
diately went to his sister. The cxcHe
ment was intense for some time. Miss
Bouyer suffered from nervous shock.
She was in a pitiable condition even
later in the day when at the jail,
where she remained to identify Jef
ferson. She was confident she would
be able to identify him, as she had
often seen him in the neighborhood.
Jefferson appears very nervous, has
shifty eyes and a crafty look. While
talking he shuts his eyes rapidly and
stutters slightly, repeating his sen
tences. Although he talked for twen
ty minutes yesterday he wandered so
in his statement that the whole could
be summed up as but a general denial
that he was the man wanted.
Becoming disgusted with the hilarity
of its very aggressive master and the
two dusky soubrettes in the hack be
hind it, the horse drawing John Proc
tor’s cab kicked to freedom early yes
terday morning, leaving the cab and
occupants standing in the middle of
Oglethorpe avenue while it galloped
back to the stable.
Attached to the resentful beast was
the harness and shafts of the vehicle,
and it is said by an eyewitness that
such varied and perfectly aimed kick
ing has never been witnessed in Sa
vannah before. According to this very
appreciative bystander the old nag
aotually kicked Dixie on the dashboard,
until the shafts finally gave way at
their moorings.

Will Be Sent Back ta India by Em
igrant Commissioner Carrie.
Desk Sergeant Baughn was present
ed with the knottiest problem in the
history of his connection with the city
police department when Israel Bonano,
a coolie cook, was carried to police
headquarters by Emigrant Commis
sioner Currie yesterday afternoon for
detention until the facts of the deser
tion of the man from the British
steamship Indrimayo could be ascer
tained and arrangements be made for
returning 'the man to India.
Bonano deserted his vessel about a
week ago, and was arrested by the
ship’s watchman yesterday. He was
immediately turned over to Commis
sioner Currie. When he was carried
before Sergt Baughn the sergeant pre
emptorily demanded his name. The
appearance of the prisoner suggested
he was one of the specie usually
brought up from Yamaeraw on Sat
urday nights. The man stared at the
desk sergeant in blank amazement,
and Commissioner Currie informed the
sergeant that the man was a coolie.
The sergeant, while not an expert
linguist, can make himself understood
fairly well in most of the modern ver
sions of the English language, but he
is a little backward in his Tibeto-Bur
man dialect. After making due ex
cuses to the commissioner for his ig
norance of what the prisoner was try
ing to say the sergeant entered his
name on the blotter as Charlie Ka
man, which is sufficiently in the prox
imity to the title borne by the coolie
ip his native land. The coolie will be
deported to India.

Free Test Distribution of Drake'*
Palmetto Wine Being Made in Sa
Less than twelve months ago the
name of Drake’s Palmetto Wine was
unknown to readers of the Morning
News, but it is now a household word
among thousands in Savannah and
surrounding territory. It is a matter
of no little surprise that a meritori
ous preparation can win its way into
the homes of so many in this brief
space of time. The secret, however,
can be told in a very few words. The
manufacturers, knowing its curative
qualities, advertised their preparation

trial and reaping benefits therefrom,
desired others to know its merits.
In order to further establish Drake's
Palmetto Wine among those whom it

may be obtained from the following
druggist, Masonic Temple Pharmacy,
102 Liberty street, west, corner Whit
The reproduction of nearly 100 tes
timonials, selected at random from
several thousands, speaks volumes for
the merits of the preparation.
They do not try to prove what it will
do for you. A test bottle and fair
trial will demonstrate in the most forc
ible way. If you are sick and look
ing for a cure, they claim to have the
remedy that will cure you. Call and
secure a test bottle before the supply
is exhausted.—ad.
