LINKED WITH THE SEA.
THE LAST SPIKE DRIVEN ON THE
Trains to Begin Running on Saturday
--A Trip to Ocean City- Scenery
Along the Route Deptford and Fort
Bartow Stations Pleasure Grounds
Within the Fortifications at Causton’s
The last spike on the Savannah and Tvbee
railroad was driven yesterday. Construc
tion trains will nut through to the island to
morrow, and on Satui'dny the road will be
opened for travel.
Contractor McLain is working four trains
and a force of upwards of 400 men. The
last train load of rails was carried over the
voad on Friday and the track laying was
finished last night. All that remains now
is to “surface” the road, which
will require several weeks and to
extend the western terminus from
the Savannah, Florida and Western junc
tion to the company’s depot grounds on
Randolph street. For the present, however,
trains will be run into the Savannah, Florida
and Western yards, stopping at the east
platform of the depot.
THROUGH TO TVBEK.
Everybody has tieen anxious to know
when the road will be opened. The state
ment was made some time ago that trains
would be running £n June tin. Capt. Purse,
who went over the eastern end of the road
yesterday,with several of the directors, said
upon his return last night that unless some
thing unforseen occurs everything will lie
in readiness to start out the fii-st train on
The schedule will be made up and pub
lished in a day or two. At first only three
regular train's will lie run daily, and an
extra on Sundays, making three round trips
on week days and four on Sundays. The
principal stations after leaving Savannah
will be Deptford, Fort Bartow, King’s land
ing and Ocean City. Seven handsome
coaches are standing in the Savannah,
Florida and Western yards ready to lie
made up, and on Saturday they will make
their first trip to the sea.
A TRIP OVER THE ROAD.
A Morning News representative went
over the line yesterday with President Purse
as far as Lazaretto creek. Less than a year
ago ground was broken for the road, and
the first shovelful of earth was thrown on
Deptford plantation. Active work was at
once commenced. It was expected that the
road would be ready for operation April 1,
but unavoidable delays occurred, necessita
ting a postponement, of the opening until
everything is in shape.
All that, now remains to be done to
link Savannah to the seashore is the
finishing of Lazaretto creek draw
bridge. That will be done by to morrow
noon, and construction trains will
then run through to the eastern
terminus of the road. There -null be no
l oad in the country more delightful to trav
el over. For the greater part of the dis
tance the river is in immediate view, and
after passing Causton's bluff, the route is
open to the free sweep of the breezes from
Xthe ocean for ten miles.
*• ALONG THE ROUTE.
* The country through which the road runs
is not only beautifully picturesque, but it
has many points of ’ historic interest. The
spacious" grounds of Twickenham, Bruton
Hill, Deptford, Causton’s Bluff and Mackey
Point plantations present, conspicuous at
tractions. This is particularly the case
with that portion of Deptford through
which the l oad runs.
A carnage drive through Twickenham to
Bruton Hill along the bluff and across the
plateau to Deptford affording a magnificent
view of the city is one of the prettiest drives
around Savannah. The magnificent oaks at
Deptford rival those of Bonaventure, and
the view of the river und the long stretch of
country from the bluff overlooking the city
is unsurpassed. The vast plateau covering
thousands of acres is a beautiful site for a
future suburb of Savannah. Across this
plateau the railroad runs. The first station
ou>t of the city will be Deptford.
TTNDER FORT BARTOW’S WALLS.
Causton’s Bluff and Fort Bartow consti.
tute the most conspicuous and interesting
point on the line, and few prettier or more
romantic spots can be found anywhere.
The station will be Fort Bartow. The road
runs underneath the huge earthworks and
fortifications built in 18(32 by the Confeder
ate forces to prevent the advance of the
Federal gunboats up the river. The fortifi
cations are still intact. Inside the huge em
bankments is a plateau of 100 acres,
covered with beautiful groves affording
room for twenty picnic parties without one
knowing that the other is there. The fort will
be made the company's pleasure grounds.
The depot will be on the north side of tho
earthworks overlooking the Savannah and
Wilmington rivers and affording an unob
structed view of the islands clear to Tybee.
The company has already sunk an artesian
well to supply its engines, and the water
■will be carried up into the fort and dis
tributed in the groves.
Fort Bartow, when it has been developed,
will be one of the most attractive spots in
near reach of the city, The bluff itself is
full of historic interest.
ACROSS THE MARSHES.
After leaving Fort Bartow the road
makes a graceful detour and at the end of
>fae curve strikes Wilmington river, spanned
toy K substantially constructed iron draw
bridge, 200 feet long, having two openings
82 feet each. From this point on the island
passengers not only have the invigorating
influence of the ocean breeze, but an unin
terrupted view of the broad expanse
of water nearly to the sea buoy.
Three trains and a force of ovor :100 hands
are at work on the cut through which the
road passes out over the long stretch of
islands. The rest of the trip was by raff.
The line running along McQueen’s mai-sh,
south of the south channel of the river, with
tit. Augustine creek and Tybee river on the
south, commands a full view of Warsaw
The scenery between St. Augustine and
lazaretto creeks, a distance ot eight, and
one-third miles, is kaleidoscopic in charac
ter, the glistening waters of the Savannah
river, St. Augustine creek and Tybee river
on either side.
ALONG THE SAND HILLS.
After crossing Lazaretto creek, at King's
landing tho road continues on a circuit in
the rear of the front hills of the liem-h and
thence around tho island, passing through
Ocean City and direct to the south cm*
where a magnificent view presents itself.
The south end, where the railroad has Its
terminus on the island, is one of the most
charming spots imaginable, and will be the
site of the second and large hotel. A num
ber of handsome cottages will be erected
at this point in vicinity of the hotel, and
facilities will he provided for those who pre
fer river bathing to buffeting the vigorous
OBSTACLES DONE AWAY WITH.
The impossibilities which stood in the way
of the road buve boen overcome, and the
enterprise tor which there were few people
who did not predict failure has been ac
complished. It was said that a railrod could
not be built through the low marshes except
on piles. It has been built, and in the
ordinary way. Tho doubt which existed
in the minds of many as to the road living
really built now must vanish when trains
liegin running. It is not an enterprise, it is
true, that has carriefi itself; it is only
through constant pushing and under sys
tematic management that it lias been ac
President Purse has given his personal at
tention to the work. The enterprise wus
bis conception, and it is through his
energetic efforts. backed by a few
of his friends, that the road has been
buiit. He lielieved from the start that it
was not only practicable and feasible, but
that it ixuild be constructed at a cost not
greater than tliat of the average railroad.
THE FORMAL OPENING.
Although the road will be put in operation
this week it will not be turned over to
the company by the contractors until
it is In every way complete, and has been
fully tested. This will probably not be until
fall, when tbu formal opening will take
The work at. Tybee is progressing rapidly,
and everything will be in readiness by Sat
urday. The hotel will be ready for tne re
ception of guests next week, and by July 1
the season will be fully open.
A REGULAR SCORCHER.
The Intense Heat of Yesterday and
How People Tried to Avoid it.
Old Sol was evidently having another con
test with the wind or some other such indi
vidual yesterday, and it was equally evident
that it was Sol’s inniqg, for he was doing
some pretty effectual work, and though
there were no cloaks to be shed bv the way
farer, many a coat was laid aside and ap
pearances forsaken in a vain chase for com
fort. It was too hot to work. Of that there was
not the shadow of a doubt, and those upon
whom it was forced felt that the dignity of
labor would melt in sympathy with collars
and cuffs unless work was stopped. The
George-McGlynn theory won many a con
vert, for tho tired and weary laborer,
thinking how delightful it would be
to sit under the shade of one
of the trees that doubtless grows on the
land that would be apportioned to him,
while an unearned increment was paying
for ice-cold lemonade at 15c. a glass, men
tally resolved to aid these philanthropists in
their scheme of division.
During the early part of the afternoon the
heat was intense and the atmosphere
sti H ing. Those who were uufortunate enough
to lie on the street felt it at its worst, for
they were attacked from every direction.
Overhead, the sun was beating down with
an intensity that is pleasanter
to write about than feel;
the pavements were charged with
heat as is a battery with electricity and they
radiated it with the utmost freedom and
generosity; the very winds that blew were
not and dry and though they fanned one’s
face they tailed to refresh. Umbrellas were
brought into plentiful use, but soon found
to be worthless as a protection against heat,
for while they kept off the sun to a certain
extent they caught and held in their domes
the heat reflected from below and
kept tho head in a reservoir of
of hot air. Every attempt to keep cool was
a failure, and the only thing left to do was
to wish with Canon Kingsley that you
could take off your flesh and sit in your
Bull street was deserted. Rare were the
red parasols and white dresses that flitted
up that favorite thoroughfare yesterday
Such was in fact the condition of the
population of Savannah on the hottest day
of the season, for such was yesterday. Th’**
thermometer rose one-tenth of a degree
higher than it has been this year, but the
physical thermometer went higher than that
for the day was close and very oppressive
and much more unbearable than the
hot spell of ten days ago. The highest
yesterday was 1*7.1% which was reached be
tween 2 and 8 o’clock. The mean tempera
ture of the day was 84.3. The heat seems
to have settled in spots throughout this sec
tion of the country, for in Pensacola the
highest was only 89% and at Jacksonville
and Charleston only 1*2% but Augusta took
the lead of all the South by scoring 102°.
The indications at midnight did not give
much promise of cooler weather, for a care
ful scrutiny of the bulletins discovered no
cold waves approaching, nor even any cold
areas wandering around in this section of
THE JUDICIAL GRIND.
A Mistrial in the Patterson Case- More
Time Allowed in the Fogarty Case.
At 11 o'clock yesterday morning the jury
that had spent nearly twenty-four hours in
discussing the evidence submitted in the
Patterson divorce case sent word to Judge
Adams that there was no probabilty of their
agreeing, so they were called in the court
room and the foreman announced a hung
jury. It is understood that five were in
favor of granting Patterson a divorce while
seven were opposed to It, but not one would
vote to gi ant a divorce to Mrs. Patterson.
After the mistrial had been announced
Mr. Smith presented a petition in
behalf of Patterson, asking that the order
requiring Mm to pay temporary alimony,
be modified and that he tie released from
jail. The petition set forth that Patterson
has no employment and is utterly unable to
]>ay tho nlimouy, and also that he has been
so sick that lie has been confined to his lied.
Judge Adams released him on his own parole
until Saturday, when the argument on tho
petition will be heard.

24 to 1.
The Amateurs came within one of shut
ting out the Savannahs yesterday. The
game was well played by the winners, but
the losers played about as poor a
game as they well could.
It was not a very encouraging start-off for
the new team. The Amateurs batted hard
and fielded admirably, making only 3
errors, aud piling up 17 base hits against 19
errors and only 4 hits by the Savannahs.

and was well supported by Grady. Grady

A RICE CORNER WORKING
A NEW YORK FIRM BUYING UP
THE SOUTHERN STOCKS.
The Bearish Attitude of the "Journal
of Commerce”—A Bull Firm’s Circular
on the Subject High Grade Rice at
Low Grade Prices Domestic Rice
Selling Higher Than Foreign.
Many of the prominent rice merchants in
New York and the South have discovered
what they consider an effort to bear aud
corner rice. The last crop has been about
used up and the stocks generally are small,
and the new crop will not come in before the
middle of September so the time is ripe for
a comer, if any opearators desire to run
one. For this reason the reports concerning
the market have all been watched with in
terest. The New York Journal of Com
merce has contained some very bearish arti
cles of late, and they have attracted so much
attention that AA'est & Melchers, of New
York, have issued the following circular
which they have distributed extensively
throughout the Southern markets:
A FIAT CONTRADICTION.
We beg to call your attention to tbe following
article which appeared in the New York Journ
al of Commerce ot June 15: “Rice—Domestic
sorts, took a tumble to-day. and we quote the
market at btt&Uc. off. Holders attribute the
weakening to the influence of the foreign sorts
which are now being received and sold at a
great disparity in price. These may have con
tributed incidentally but are not the real factors
of weakness. The present condition of the
market is due to the falling away of the de
mand and the activity of the ‘restive weevil’ and
“plodding worm.’ both here and at the South,
The latter destructive elements tend to make
outside holders quite thoughtful as to their
possessions, lest they take to themselves
wings or crawl away. Much of the stock held
on speculation has iu it a 25 to 35 per cent,
profit, and can therefore be sold at quite a re
duction from tbe present quotations, and yet
leave a ‘trifle to buy the child a frock.’ Coast
markets are dull and stocks accumulating.”
While we give our friends in the South credit
for intelligence enough to know that the above
is untrue in every particular, we would not feel
justified in remaining silent while such a report
war circulated broadcast in a paper of such
prominence. Our market is firm, with light
stocks and a good demand. All indications
point to a higher plane of values in the near
A LOCAL OPINION.
Messrs. Harmon & Cope, of this city,
were called upon yesterday, and were asked
their views on the positions of the Journal
of Commerce and Messrs. West <fe Melchers,
and from them was learned something in
connection with the movement that gave it
the apiiearance of an effort to run a corner.
These bearish articles have been appearing
in the Journa I, of Commerce for several
days, ar.d they have been followed by
wholesale offers' of high grade rice at low
grade prices by Talmage & Sons. If there
has been a decline in New York,
primary markets are not aware
of it. and private information
from that point indicates a firm market ana
a strong demand, with a tendency toward
higher prices. Regarding the “festive wee
vil” it has not made its appearance in this
market, for there are not 100 barrels of rice
here t hat are more than thirty days old,
and if the weather reports are correct the
temperature in New York has not been high
enough to start the “plodding worm” a
plodding in the rice held there.
The figures of the Board of Trade show
that 2,168 barrels of clean rice have gone
into consumption from Savannah since
June 1, showing that there is a good demand
for the article and a movement outward
that will not admit of an accumulation of
HOW THE CORNER IS WORKED.
Messrs. Harmon &, Cope said that the bear
movement was inspired by Talmage & Sons,
who, after the bearish articles had been
thoroughly circulated, began sending little
sample’packages of high grade Patna rice to
the rice buyers of the South, and offering to
sell that foreign stock at 4c. to Patna
rice of the quality of the samples costs 4)£o.
in New York and 4%c. in Savannah; vet it
was offered here at from to %c. below
cost, presumably for the purpose of creating
the impression that if this high grade
could lie sold at such figures domestic rice
must tie worth much less; but at the same
time thev sent word to their broker here to
buy all tile domestic rice he could at the
market price, and Mr. Hannon said that he
bought on Friday at l%c. He thought that
there is no question about it that Talmage
& Sons are playing for all the rice that re
mains in the South, and that they are mak
ing their bear statements public while they
are quietly paying top prices for ail they

They Want a Half Holiday.
Savannah, Ga., June 18.— Editor Morn
ing News: Please say a word for the clerks
in the grain trade as regards the Saturday
half holiday. The grain and stationery
houses are about the only lines on the Bay
keeping ojien on Saturday afternoons, and
their employes would appreciate the half
holiday fully as much as their fellow clerks
in the grocery and other lines. I think those
needing grain and feed would do their buy
ing in the forenoon if they knew that it
would give a half holiday to the clerks.
