The Southern Association Invites This City to Join in Its Work. ORGANIZATION AN EASY MATTER. The Local Daily Press Will Use Its Efforts to Institute a Lyceum Here—Re proaoh to the City. The Southern Lyceum Association has offered to give Brunswick a place on its circuit. Secretary H. C. Mid dleton, of the Ass_*ation, writes to the editor of Thk Times : “We should be very glad to have Brunswick enter the Southern Ly ceum circuit as far as she is able, if her people wish to place her within it. She could conduct a lyceum on a very good scale.” The Association proposes to make a circuit of the thirty-six principal cities of the south. The advantages of Brunswick entering tbe circuit are apparent. The cities that have already entered are Norfolk, Wilmington, Charleston, Savannah, Columbus, Jacksonville, Birmingham, Chattanooga, Nashville, Vicksburg, Little Rock, Shreveport, Augusta, and Atlanta. The necessary admission that Bruns wick has no such attroclion as a ly ceum course to offer to her citizens is a matter of reproach to the town. The local daily press has decided to enlist its efforts toward removing the reproach, and securing the organiza tion of a lyceum in this city. The particulars of organization, necessary preliminaries, etc., will he published in a few days. Experience has shown that the perfecting of a local organiz ation is not a diffioult matter. At Au gusta, one person secured the entire membership requisite in three days. The officers of the association are: Henry Watterson, president; John B. Gordon, vice president: Hugh C. Mid dleton, secretary and treasurer. Wait for further announcements on the subject. Brunswick must get into the lyceum circuit. WEYLER DENIES. He Says That Evangelina Cisneros Has Not Been Sentenced.

Weyler’s dispatch is as follows: “For judicial reasons, there is on trial in the preliminary stages a per son named Evangelina Cassio Cisne ros, who deceitfully lured to her house the military commander of the Isle of Pines, had men posted secretly, who tied him and attempted to assassinate him. This case is in the preliminary stages and has not as yet been tried by a competent tribunal and conse quently no sentence has been passed or approved by me. 1 answer the World with the frankness and truth that characterize all my acts. “ VVkvi.hu."

Strong Language Indulged in By Some Brunswick Naval Reserve. DID HE ALTER THE VOUCHERS? The Charger, Are Severe—Colding Has Not Replied—Conduct Unbecoming Officer of the Dav. i ’ I Brunswick in general and the Na val Reserves in particular were much wrought up yesterday over the publi cation in tbe Atlanta Constitution of an article over a column in extent, treating ot the disagreements of the; Brunswick and Savannah divisions of the organization. The article was sensationally written, and concluded with severe charges against the char acter of Lieutenant H. S. Colding, of the Savannah Reserves. The charges in question were made in the shape of a diepatch from the Brunswiok cor respondent of the Constitution, and by him reported as an interview with a member of the Brunswick Reserves, “standing high in authority.” The strictures on the Savannah of ficer were very severe. The first al legation by the informant of the cor respondent was that Lieutenant Cold ing bad made“alteiation of returns to the government for the transportation of men to and from St. Simons, for the benefit of the transportation com pany.” On this charge, the interview says “if the Savannah Reserves want the matter officially investigated, they can get it.” Another charge made in the same manner as the foregoing, is that “Lieut. Colding was the only of ficer from Savannah who received criticism at the hands of the camp commandant. He was reprimanded for conduct unbecoming an officer of the day. While acting in that capac ity, he approached Col. Yarnedoe, of the Fourth regiment, just arrived in camp, and then senior officer, without sword or gloves, and with coat unbut toned. When reprimanded for being in this condition he replied that it was too hot for him to go buttoned up and with sword. While on dre6B pa rade he sheathed his sword and left the field. For this he was reprimand ed. His unsoldierly conduct was gen erally noticed, It followed the turn ing over of the battalion to Lieuten ant Broughton, of Savannah, to drill, and it was alleged that night that Lieutenant Colding’s action was due to jealousy. This charge was denied. The only boisterous conduct reported to Commandant Aiken was caused by the Savannah hoys tearing down a tent, it will he remembered that tbe Wilmington’s officers’ report criti cised the reserves severely for bois terous conduct.” The recital ot these charges, so ser ious, and made in such public manner, was the subject of much comment in this city. The general expression was that the effioer, whoever he is, whomadethecharges in print had com mitted a serious blunder. Even if the things charged against Lieutenant Colding are true, it is argued that their newspaper publicity can cer tainly do no good, and is capable of do ing a vast amount of harm. It is cal culated to widen the breach now ex isting between the two cities and their respective organizations, and to make their getting together in the fu ture a matter of approximate impos sibility. The name of the Naval Reserve making the charges is not made pub lic, and there was much speculation last night as to who he is. The publi cation intensifies the feeling here in the Naval Militia muddle, and is lia ble to intensify it even more in Savan nah. Yesterday’s Constitution also has interviews with Atlanta officers who know something about the naval mi litia service, as follows: “Captain Kenan, who was at St. Simon during the entire encampment, was asked about the report of the cap tain of the Wilmington. At first he refused to talk, stating that it was a matter that would be settled in the future, ‘“ln juetice to my state, I feel like 1 can and ought to say that the criti cism of captain Todd was unjust, and that his suggestions were uncalled for” said Captain Kenan. “Lieutenant Charles A. Selden, bat talion adjutant Fifth regiment infan try, Georgia volunteers, was sent to Brunswick by his colonel to join the camp of instruction of tbe Naval Re serve, for observations. He was asked his opinion of the Naval Reserve, and stated that they would compare favor ably as to physique, discipline and training with any of the volunteer forces of the state. He was in camp Saturday and Sunday and spent Sat urday night in the camp and found it clean, the men neat and well set up, and their bearing very soldierly, and military courtesies were well observ ed. All arrangements were admir able.” HE DID NOT BEPI.Y. The Times, on learning of the chargee against Lieutenant Colding, wired him at Savannah, requesting such statement as he saw fit to make in answer to the allegations. No re ply was received from Lieutenant Colding. PLUCKY WOMAN. Negro. Intending Assault, Gsts a Pistol Bullet. Petersburg, Va , Aug. 21.--A negro tramp called at tbe home of John Lit tle, in Sussex county, during the lat ter’s absence last night, and demand ed of Mrs. Little all the money in the house.
