Quotations By Telegraph for The Times’ Commercial Readers. l’aine, Murphy & Co.’s Grain Letter. Savannah, Aug. 27.—Wheat—the weak Liverpool cables helped the de cline here today and the liquidation did the rest. Liverpool closed from 3% to 4 l 4'd lower, which was rather unexpected to holders, in as much as our market advanced yesterday, but wheat is a cereal that at present moves either way very rapidly and longs were not disposed to nold their lines in the face of weak foreign ad vances. There was also a break in continetal wheat markets of from 20 to 27'.jc although an advance of from 25 to 50 centimes is noted in Paris flour. I’aine, Murphy & Co.’s Stock Letter. Savannah, Aug. 27. —The stock mar ket developed an increase in activity and prices responded with general ad vances. London quotations were higher and arbitrage houses bought on balance. The commission house business also showed improvement. Strength was so widespread that it is almost superfluous to mention partic ular issues. Paine, Murphy & Co.’s Cotton Letter. Savannah, Aug. 27.—The speculative levival is becoming an important fac tor in the catton market, is conclu sively shown by the steadiness of our market in face of the continued dis appointing character of the Liverpool market from day today. The market opened this morning better than ex pected in view of the deoline in the Liverpool market of from 3 to 3)4 and the very slack spot demand there, in itial transactions being made at from 2 to 6 points under last evening’s close.

Fireman Ben Franklin Narrowly Escapes a Horrble Death. THROWN UNDER THE WHEELS. He Went to the George Street Crossing to Meet Friends, But Will Not Be Able to Enjoy Their Visit. Fireman Ben N. Franklin, of the city fire department, was painfully and seriously injured yesterday after noon, being thrown from and partially run over by ihe Southern’s special ex cursion train arriving at 2:30. The train, which was crowded with excursionists from Macon and all points south, did not stop at the George street crossing, as is the cus tom of regular trains on the Southern, but slowed down to the speed required when crossing streets, and this is the explanation of the unfortunate acci dent. Mr. Franklin attempted to board the train at George street, but missed his footing and was thrown from and alongside the moving train, which considerably increased its speed when the crossing was passed. His injuries were the loss of three fingers from the right hand and an unsightly abrasure of the scalp. Spec tators declare that the scalp wound was caused by his head striking against a crosstie. Speedy assistance was rendered,and the wounded man, who was uncon scious when picked up, was carried to his home at 126 Reynolds street. Drs. Branham, Hugh Burford and Blanton were called in and in a short while the contusions and lacerations were sewed and bonnd. At 5 o’clock Mr. Franklin was out of danger, and he will be out in a few days. The physicians think he will have pretty good use of his second linger, and also expect to save about half of bis third and fourth fingers. The wound on his head is nothing se rious and will be all right as soon as the scalp can heal. Mr. Franklin had secured a leave of absence from duty from Chief Green in order to meet some friends who came in on the excursion. Chief Green said yesterday that Franklin was one of the most valuable men in the department and that it would be hard to fill his place during the period of bis disability. Big Fire Near Cordele.

As The Times has announced, the anniversary ot the Uniform Rank Knights of Pythias will occur on Mon day and will be celebrated by Ogle thorpe company of this city with a public parade and inspection. It was also announced that the other military organizations of the city would turn out in a joint parade in honor of the Pythians. A question has arisen in the mean time, pending the decision of which the orders for the turnout of the Rifle men and the Naval Militia are held up. The question is as to whether the state military organizations can pa rade under the command of Major Louis Haym. Major Haym is an offi cer of the Uniform Rank and has no commission from the state. It is claimed that the participation of the regular state militia in a parade under the command of an officer who is not commissioned by the state would be a breach of military law. The question has never been sprung before and it is not known how it will he settled. ONE JUROR EXCUSED. The Trial of Luetgert Moving Very Slowly in Chicago.

A Big Excursion Gave- the City Some Extra Life Yesterday, THE ISLANDS AND THE TOWN Were Lively with Strangers—They Will Spend Three Days—The South ern Brought Them. Brunswick was invaded yesterday by a large crowd of people from Ma con and the towns along the line of the Southern railway. It was about the last excursion of the summer seas on, and those who had not enjoyed the pleasure of a trip to the seashore earlier in the summer came yester day. The special train arrived at 2:30, making a very quick un from Macon. Many of the excursionists found lodging places in the city, while others went to St. Simon. Among the arrivals was a colored baseball team, which crossed bats with a Brunswick team yesterday afternoon. The train brought 900 people. Many of them left on the Governor Salford for St. Simon and Cumberland. The streets were alive with the remainder yesterday afternoon and last night. They bought freely of the wares of fered in the business houses, filled up on sodawater and—some of them —on other things, hired all the bicycles in the local renting agencies, patronized the livery stables and increased the registers of the hotels and boarding houses. Their ticAjts are good for three days, and many of the excursionists will stay the limit. Those who re mained in the city yesterday will go to the islands today, and those at the islands will come up to the city . The excursion was a great benefit to Brunswick, and suggests that others arranged at stated periods would be valuable to the business of the town. CHAIRMAN FENDIG BACK. He Says Prosperity is Surely Here and Talks of His Extended Trip. Chairman of Council Albert Fen dig returned yesterday from an ex tended trip to New York and other principal cities of the east, which trip was partly for pleasure and partly for business. Mr. Fendig, whose experience in real estate, and especially Bruns wick real estate, has given him keen eyes and a quick and observant; brain, talked t 9 a Times man yesterday af ternoon at his office of the various in teresting things he bad noted in his travels, “Prosperity ?” said the genial aider man, “It is surely here. No one who knew the conditions at the centers ot trade and money one year ago could make the trip that I have without rea lizing that a great change for the bet ter has taken place.” “Every where, the merchants are reporting that the number of buyers from the south and west has been larger this season than ever before. They are buying larger and better stocks, and telling those with whom they talk that they are sure of big business this winter. New York is teeming with out-of-town merchants, their faces and hearts full of confi dence. I have never seen healthier conditions of the merclmtidise and money markets.” Mr. Fendig was asked about the re organization of the Brunswick com prny, and what it meant for this oity. He was with a number of the leading spirits of the new company in New York, but said their plans had not yet been disclosed outside of their im mediate circle. “I am inclined to think, however” said Mr. Fendig, “that the new organization will be of great benefit to Brunswick.”
