The strike among tho lumber longshore
men has hurst forth with renewed violence,
and it now seems more threatening than
ever. The trouble, which liegan over a
Month ago, had subsided and it was
thought to l>e over, hut it laid only lulled
for awhile, and now it has begun again.
Tho men demanded at the outset a heavy
increase in wages, and struck to force the
stevedores to grout it. The matter dragged
along for some time and Dually there wns n
sort of comiiromise, the men receiving the
wages they wanted, hut not tho other con
cessions that were asked for. Matters have
run nlong in that way for more than a
month. Some of the stevedores have been

employed both union ami non-union men.

urged them not to accede to the strikers' <le
Iniuuls, but the captains wanted to load and
get out, so they devdiiusl to comply wit h the
request and |mid the men what they asked.
For that reason McDonough A Cos. have had
lie trouble until within a day or two, but
the captains they are now furnishing are as
firm as the others, and every vessel at the

ally understood that at t> o’clock there
would ls> a pietty sharp battle. The non

■while before dinner the union men,

they were going to attend a meeting of

foiv reaching it, the polioe saw that none
would be made at all. It is half
a luik' from the wharves to the
bridge, and the men traveled over the dis

bridge was finally reached there was no sign
of trouble. The strikers had disappeared
and not one w.is to U> stx-n.

Tiie demands that are mode by t he strikers,
tlie limtlier men claim, are excessive. They
have bien receiving $1 Jo and #1 on perday.
They now demand an increase of 100 per
cent., asking i~ 50 and $0 a dav.
Tint MiII KKK.H’ DEMANDS.
They also demand that the crew of a ves
sel shall not lie employed at any price, but
must remain Idle wnde the longshoremen
load the vessel. The third demand is t hat
the stevedores shall work a gang of four
teen men or none at all. If a staging is to
is* put. up, though two men can do it, the
stevedore must Use fourteen men. Only
eight are necessary in “finishing off" a ves
sel, still he must use fourteen.
The stevedores positively refused in listen
to the last two demands, but to the demand
for higher wages some of them acceded, to
their sorrow. They found that when they
paid the wages there was nothing left for
themselves. One stevedore paid out $4O
more m wages than he received for loading
Ids vessel, and Innl the captain not refunded
him the $4O he would not have made
enough to pay the hands.
The whole trouble with the longshore
men seems to be a walking delegate.
KEEPING UI'THE KEELING.
A negro named Collins is said to bo the
bead of the association,and t<> keep the men
in a constant state of agitation Isvause he
knows that unless he keeps them fighting
tliey will not stick together, and lie must
keep up a large meinlierslnp or he will not
make money cnoligh to satisfy him
self. As conqiensation for his sor
victces in keeping the association in
a state of turmoil lie receives 25c, |K>r we<>k
ii-oui each man, and the estimates as to the
number of memK'rs are from UK) to 400,
so at, least, he makes a good deal more than
lie could by giving up his [loaitiou as jaw
smith and going to work.
The st rike has reached a point when' a de
cided settlement is imperative. The mer
chants say tlmt if they have to accede to the
strikers' demands they wtll quit business
here mid sltip their lumber via Brunswick.

THE COTTON OIL MILLS.
TO BE READY FOR OPERATION BY
Ono Hundred and Fifty Men at Work
on tho Buildings Tho Seed House
With a Storage Capacity for 10,000
Tons of Cotton Seed Nearly Finished
- How the Company Will Handle Its
Ono hundred and fifty men are at work
on the Southern (ill Company’s mills west
of the N'ale Royal lumber mills. The
foundation for the first building was started
June 11, and that building is now nearly
finished, and two other* are under way.
The site of the mills fronts the river and
is just, oust of the water works on the Vale
Royal plantation, The building next to the
river is the seed house, a frame structure, 200
feet liy so feet. This is neatly finished and
will have a storage capacity for 10,000 tons
of cotton seed. South of tho seed house is
the machinery building, a substantial two
story brick structure, 130 by 00 feet.
The walls are now up to tlie second story
uiid will Ik l finished by July 15th.
The foundation of the meal house south of
the machinery building are being laid. This
will U'a one story brick building, 100 feet
by NO feet, and will lie used as u storage
building for the meal from which tho oil
has lieen compressed.
The oil house has not yet leen started. It
will Im* located ftKiut 200 feet still further
south and will also I*' of brick. Its
dimensions will lie I'll feet by 50 feet.
The boiler houses and shops east of the ma
chinery imildiug, will also be of brick. The
company's offices will bo built west of the
sred house, toward the water works. All of
the buildings will lie of brick except the
seed house and ofllces.
A temporary car track has been built
from tho \ ale Royal Manufacturing Com
I may's works to the mills. A permanent
track will be built as sen as possible, run
liiug nearly parallel with the water
works read around the mills
and extending to the river
where the company will have wharves for
receiving cotton seed from the river
steamers and vessels. The water is not deep
enough for vessels of nv sire, and the com
pany will ship its products either by rail
direct from the mills to their destination or
to the (loean Steamship wharves and thence
North. As mon as the track can be built to
the mills the machinery will be put in posi
The work is being pushed as rapidly ns
possible. Manager Haskell said yesterday
that the mills will be ready for operation as
soon as the seed can be obtained. Their ca
pacity will at first be about ninety tons of
seed per day, depending altogether upon its
condition, whether it is wet or dry. If wet,
the mills will not be able to handle much
over eighty tons. About fifty hands will lie
employed at first, but this number will be
doubled when all the machinery is put in.

JUNE'S STRANGE WEATHER.
Extremes in Temperature One of the
Features of the Month.
Signal Observer Salisbury’s Juue report
to the Chief Signal Office contains some
very interesting state tics in regard to the
weather at Savannah. The month just
closed was remarkable for the the extremes
of its maximum and minimum tempera
tures, its very low moan temperature and
its successive rainfall.
The maximum temperature for the month
is the highest on record at this station ex
cept that for June, 1880, which exceeded it
by 3-100 of a degree.
The minimum temperature is the lowest
on record except in June, 1877 and 1884: and
the mean for tuo month is less than that for
any June except in ISNI, and is 3* less than
the moan for fifteen years. The rainfall is
3.74 inches in excess of the average for the
month, and is exceeded only by tne precipi
tation of Juno, 187(1.
The highest temperature reached was 100
on June 19; the lowest was 00’ on Juno 12,
and the mean was 77 . The mean tempera

To Increase Its Capital Stock.
There was a very full meeting of the
stockholders of the Oglethorpe Savings and
Trust Company yesterday afternoon. Tli >
purpose of the meeting was to consider the
proposition to increase the capital stock of
the company from $75,000 to SIOO,OOO.
After the matter had Ken discussed it was
put to a vote, the result of which was in
favor of the increase. It was then deter
mined that the $25,000 of new stock should
lie offered first to the present stockholders,
who will lie required to signify what they
will take by July 11. If there is any part
not subscribed for after that date it will be
offered to the public, it must all bo paid
in by July 20.

What is Going On in South Carolina’s
The first shipment North of *South Caro
lina melons was made Thursday. Two car
loads, the first of the Barnwell crop, were
brought to Charleston on the South Carolina

was sold in the city and the other was
shipp'd to Baltimore. The shipment this
year is about one week ahead of last season.
The continued absence of the steamships
City of Columbia and City of Atlanta from
the Adger line has given rise, tho Newt and
Courier says, to various rumors, among
others that the Clydes have bought tho
steamers and would eventually consolidate
the two lines. Oapt. Courtenay, who has
been interviewed on the subject, says that
he knows nothing about the purchase of the
Adger steamers, and did not think that they
could have lieen bought by the Clydes, as
they had been seized for indebtedness by the
bondholders, and would be put itp at public
sale. Mr. J. E. Adger, one of the agents of
the New York and Charleston Steamship
Company, said that he had heard nothing in
regard to the stile, or intended sale, of the
steamers. Upon the mat urity of the bonds
about two months ago the vessels had been
seized by the bondholders, but as to what
the company proposed doing he was not able

Is Death Painless?
A Philadelphia doctor, after years of care
ful observation, says that our demise is as
painless as our advent to the world. This is
certainly reassuring; yet notwithstanding
these great inducements, we still do not
court death, and shall continue to use Dr.
Pierce’s infallible remedy, the “Golden Med
ical Discovery,” for consumption, spitting
of blood, shortness of breath, weak lungs,
coughs, bronchitis, and kindred affections
of the throat and chest. It is uuequalcd.

The Traveling Representative of
Hawkes’ Crystallized Lenses,
Is in the city for a few days only, and is
making his headquarters at
ON BULL AND CONGRESS STREETS.
This gentleman is a skillful expert optician,
having made the subject a study for years, He
will adapt glasses on scientific principles to
those needing them, and guarantee a fit. He is
thoroughly conversant with the errors of refrac
tion and diseases of the eye, congenital and ac
quired, aud guarantees that the glasses adjusted
by him will suit.
From Hon. Joel A. Billups.
Madison, Ga., April 30, 1887.
Mr. M. A. Peteet:
Dear Sir—Until about three months ago I
could not procure glasses that would enable me
to read at night without serious discomfort. I
had tried iiebbles and various styles of glasses,
but by reading for any considerable length of
time, particularly at night, my eyes were
fatigued and gave me pain, in January last, in
duced by testimonials from friends in Macon, I
procured a pair of “HAWKES’ CRYSTAL
LIZED LENSES," as sold by you, and have
found them so clear, soft and brilliant that I
read for hours at a time, by day or night, with
out experiencing any discomfort or sense of
fatigue. To that extent at least my eyes have
been benetited, and at times I read both written
and printed matter without the aid of glasses.
They arc certainly the most perfect glasses I
have ever used, and as such I take pleasure 10
recommending them. Respectfully yours,
J. A BILLUPS.
Interesting Document from a Louisiana Lady.
This is to certify that I purchased from A. E.
Wilder, on or aiiout Dec. 25, 1886. a pair of
HAWKES’ CRYSTALLIZED LENSES, and
after using them about three months my eye
sight was almost completely restored. I can
now thread a cambric needle and read the finest
print without the aid of glasses. lam 56 years

for it, ana will advise all who are afflicted with
weak eyes to use them. NANCY A. SMITH.
