Catholics of Savannah, Georgia, Cause
Savannah, Ga., Feb. 26. This . has
been the most exciting night In, tha
history of Savannah. For 4e , hqUra
the city has trembled on roe verge
of religious riots. The entire white
military force with the exception of
the artillery has .been, on duty. There
are ten uuumry companies, ana ule
Georgia Hussars. The mob is est!
mated at from 3,000 to 6,000, 'the great
er part being Catholics, and has chal
lengea uieir roroearance to the ex

Meyers and the officers commanding
the troops, ihlood might have been shed.
Bayonet charges were made several
times to clear the streets, But the mob
which had gathered about Masonic
Temple stubbornly refused to retire.
The city has been literally placarded
with notices that ex-Priest Slatterly

would lecture here on Catholicism,
members of the Ancient Order of Hi
bernians at once took steps to prevent
their appearance here. Petitions were
circulated asking iMayor Meyers to re.
fuse permission to the ex-prlest to

sented to the mayor by the commtltee
he handed them a written opinion from
the corporation attorney to the effect
that he, as mayor, had no power to
abridge the rights of speech guaranteed
by the constitution of the United States
and the state of Georgia. In his opin
ion, the city attorney said there could
be no disorder or trouble if those who
were offended toy Slattery's remarks
would stay away from the lecture. "1

said the mayor, who is a 'Hebrew, "but

heavy Inside shutters, thus saving the
audience from Injury, only ' two or
three being injured by falling glass.
The rest of the police force was called
out, and fifty men were soon in front
of the hall. The mob made a rush to
secure the entrance, but were driven
back by the police. Before 9 o'clock
the mob had grown to between 3,000
and 4,000. Window after window In
the MaHonic Temple was broken.
At the close of the lecture when the
ox -priest was about to leave the hall
with his friends the 'chief of police
stopped them and refused to allow
anyone to go down stairs. The mili

it sounded, the mob derided it. - "Bring
on your military" some of the leaders
shouted. "To hell with them; they
can't save Slattery." Elevn companies
of military were soon on the ground
and with fixed bayonets pushed the
crowd back. Finally Slattery was es
corted to his hotel by the military
and a guard left there.

tlon. Had Cole and Burke, members of
the house from Multnomah county,

do, both before their nomination and
afterward by their entering the party

the fact that they were members of
