THE MONEY ALL USED IT.
WORK IN THE HARBOR STOPPED
FOR RACK OF FUNDS.
A Depth of Over Twenty Feet Obtained
From the City to the Sea. The Sur
vey for the Enlarged Improvement
About Complete- What Was Accom
plished During the Year.
The appropriation for the improve
ment of the Savannah river and hurlxir lias
been exhausted, and work was suspended
last week. Lieut. Carter, who is hi charge
of the work here anil at Brunswick, Fer
nandina and on the Altamaliu river, is en
gaged upon his annual report to Gen. Gil
more, chief of engineers.
This year’s work in the harlior was begun
Nov. 28, and ended July 3. During that
time 40,980 square yards of log and brush
mattresses, 89,871 cubic yards of brush fas
cines, and 17,070 cubic yards of riprap stone
were used. Two new wing dams were built
at the Long Island crossing, tiic Fig
Island training wall was extended
750 feet and brought up throughout
its entire length to the mean high water
mark, iu fact all the “closing” dams were
brought up to high water. The repairs
begun on one or two wing dams,
which were injured by the cyclone of 1885,
CONDITION OF THE RIVER.
The river is now iu a better condition,
Lieut. Carter says, than it has
ever been. The least moan high water
depth between the city and the sea is 20 l’eet
find a fraction. The shoalest point is at
the Lower Flats. Vessels drawing from 19
to 20 feet will havenodiflleulty in pussing in
orout. During the year 121,098 cubic yards of
mud were removed by dredging between
the Ocean Steamship Company’s wharves
nnd the sea.
The survey for 28 feet of water, which
was ordered by Congress, and which was
begun in April "is about, complete and would
have bom mushed lief ore now but for the
bad weather which lias delayed the work on
the bar. As soon as it is finished, which
will require but a day or two longer
in fair weather, the project for the
twenty-eight feet of water will be
prepared, the idea being to get
the project completed as soon as possible in
order that Congress may make its next ap
propriation upon the basis of the enlarged
improvement, instead of upon tho present
WORK AT A STANDSTILL.
At present all work on the harbor is at a
standstill, and nothing further can be done
until Congross makes another appropriation
and it becomes available, which will proba
bly be a year from now at the inside.
The work at Brunswick has lieen com
pleted. The $22,500 appropriated for tho
improvement of tho harbor there has
been expended in dredging and in raising
the jetty opposite tho city. In completing
this work 9,074 square yards of inattrossos
and 1,447 cubic yards of stone were used.
At Femandina the south jetty was ex
tended 1,942 feet seaward, reaching a point
10,001 feet from the shore.
No work was done on the Altaniaha dur
ing the year. The snag boat Toccoa was
sent there but owing to high water in tho
river was unable to do any work.
Work on the Doboy bar, for which there
is an appropriation of SIO,OOO, will Ixi com
menced in about ten days. In tho work
there Lieut Carter proposes to introduce a
new method of dredging—hydraulic exca
vating. Tho tug Republic is being fitted
with tho necessary machinery and will bo
put to work there next week.

YOUNG J. J. WARING DEAD.
His Remains Brought Home from
Asheville Last Night.
The remains of Mr. James J. Waring,
Jr., were bought to this city lost night from
Asheville, N. C., and taken U> tho residence
of the deceased’s father, Dr. Waring, at
Bull and Perry streets. Mr. Waring was a
young man of great promise, and his ex
eelleuco of character, as well as his remark
able ability, make all the more sorrowful
his death at such an early age. Ho was
coinpollod to leave Yolo College in Febru
ary by the frequency of hemorrhages that
attacked him. lie returned home and went to
Thunderbolt, where ho spent several vvoeks.
He seemed to lie entirely recovered, but
two weeks ago ho hod another attack. He
then went to Asheville thinking that the
climate would do him good, but he never
recovered from his last hemorrhage, and on
Tuesday he died. Ho liad just received
from Yale College the degree conferred
upon him as he haul finished the course of
study, though he had left the college before
the session closed. Ho was 28 years old.
The funeral will take place from tho
family residence at 4 o’clock tliis afternoon.
CENTRAL’S $5,000,000 BOND ISBUE.
Some Gossip About a Proposition to
Limit it to $4,000,000.
There is some little gossip, how well
founded it is impossible to say, that the
Central railroad directory lias liail under
consideration the advisability of limiting
the $.5,1KK),000 issue of bonds, which it au
thorized sometime ago, to $4,000,000, but
that H. B. Hollins & Cos., objected on the
ground that subscriptions had been accept
ed for the entire $5,000,000. Tho bonds
were subscribed for very quickly, and it is
probable that more would have been taken
if they' could have been obtained. They are
very gixxl bonds, ami it is not surprising,
therefore, that they found a ready market.
The securities on which they are based have
a face value of $.4,814,400, and an estimated
1 value of $8,574,200. Their annual net earn
ings are $012,880.
The lionds are certainly well secured, and
perhaps if the public had been a little better
informed about them they might have been
placed at par. The price which tho company
obtained for them was 97’ j, lmt it seems
that H. B. Hollins & Cos. got 102 _■ for them.
The transaction wus rather a profitable one
for those who handled the bonds. The differ
ence between what the railroad got for them
oud what the public paid for them a mounted
to tho nice little fortune of $2.40,(KM).

THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, JULY 8, 1887.
TO QUIT THE SEA.
Capts. Hedge and Kolley, of the Boston
Rome changes are likely to be made in the
command* of the Ocean Steamship Com
pany’s ships at an early day. Capt. William
Kelley, Jr., of the City of Macon, of the
Boston line, sailed from Savannah yes
terday on his farewell trip.
He will leave tho company’s service upon
his arrival at Boston, and will probably re
tire altogether. Cant,. Hedge, of the
Gate City, lias been off for some time on ac
count of ill health and will not return.
Tho Gate City is now commanded by first
officer Taylor, and first officer Lewis will
command the City of Macon temporarily,
until Capt. Kelley’s successor has been ap
pointed. Both officers are competent and
Capt. Hodge Ims contemplated retiring for
some time. He has lx-en on this line
since 1873, and was o 10 of the most popular
and efficient comma iders in the company’s
service. Capt. Kelley has commando'l the
City of Macon since lsS4. He succeeded
Capt. AVright, of the ill-fated City of Co
It is not improbable that Fintt Officers Tay
lor and Lewis will be promoted, and the
company's officials are not yet prepared to
say positively, however, what will lie done.
The provisioning of the Boston ships lie
fore tiie line was b, night by the Ocean
Steamship Company was done by tho cap
tains. The Ocean Steamship Company pro
visions its own ships. General Manager
Sorrel has for some time hod in
view the same arrangement for
the Boston ships, but the change
was not made until last month. Tinder tho
old plan tho captains provided as they saw
fit; now the same plan has been adopted as
on the New York line.
SHORT HAND WRITERS.
Savannah’s Delegates to the Atlanta
Tho short hand writers throughout the
country are realizing the necessity of organi
zation. Tho rapid growth of shorthand
writing in tho past five years is something
remarkable. Almost every business con
cern of any importance now employs a
stenographer. They are being graduated
by hundreds from short hand schools all
over tho country.
An organization has already been ef
fected in Savannah called the Savannah
Shorthand Writers Association, and a meet
ing will be held in Atlanta on July 21 for
the purpose of organizing a State associa
tion whose object will lie to regulate the en
tire business of the fraternity, to establish a
schedule of prices, to protect its members
and foster their interests. A meeting of
the Savannah association was held
last night and a delegation was
appointed to attend the At lanta convention.
The delegation consists of Messrs. William
Allan, M. 11. Connolly and Andrew Ander
son. They will leave hero on the 20th.
Delegates will also attend from Augusta,
Macon, Columbus, Thomasville and Quit
man, and altogether about 100 skilled short
hand writers are exported to lie present.
The committee on organization consists of
Messrs. A. F. Cooledge, C. L. Maddox, H. B.

THE NEW WESTERN LINE
SEEKING TERMINAL FACILITIES IN
General Manager J. A. A. West, of the
Birmingham and Atlantic Air Line,
Before the Board of Trade—What is
Being Done on the Road, and What
the Company Expects to Do—Routes
Into the City.
Maj. John A. A. West, with Maj. Gonli n
Guisdner, Chief Engineer of the United
States Construction and improvement Com
pany, aud Mr. Arthur Pou, Chief Engineer
of the Savannah, Dublin and Western Short
Line railroad, accompanied by
Col. J. L. Warren, Col. Hughes
and other directors of the road,
appeared before the Board of Trade yester
day in the interests of the Birmingham
and Atlantic Air Line. Maj.
West called attention to the fact that
he has just received a letter from a
business firm in a small Alabama town
through which tho road passes, asking to
make arrangements w ith a cotton firm in
Savannah to ship to Savannah between
6,000 and 10,000 bales of eotton during the
approaching season. This, he said, is the
iirst fruit offered.
ADVANTAGES TO SAVANNAH.
He then elaborated upon the advantages
to be gained by Savannah merchants in di
minishing their freight charges. The lino
from here to Macon lieing thirty-five miles
shorter than the Central, will, he said, if
it charge the maximum rates allowed by the
State Railroad Commission, diminish Sa
vannah freight charges 33% per cent. Take
any firm in Savannah doing a fair business,
and diminish their freight 33,!*) per
cent., and what an immense advantage it
will give them over their competitors
for Macon’s business. Between Savannah
and Amerieus the road will diminish the
freight charges per cent.: between Sa
vannah and Birmingham, with its immense
business, the road will be compelled by State
laws to charge by the mile fixed rates, which
will diminish freight charges over 20 per
cent., on account of having a much shorter
line than any other road.
THE ALABAMA DIVISION.
From LaGrange to Birmingham Maj.
West has canvassed the entire line. The
towns and counties have, he said, made
liberal subscriptions to tho road, and have
freoly given the right of way. We have
already at work a large force of hands
grading the line near Savannah, and Maj.
Guisdner with a corps of engineers
is now engaged in surveying several
different linos from this side tho
Ogoecliee into Savannah. Tho first
line which is now being surveyed, will con
nect with tho Savannah, Florida and Western
railway; the second will connect with tho
Central railroad; the third will be down the
right-of-way of the Central, over the right
of-way of the Charleston and Savannah to
the Savannah, Florida and Western; tho
fourth will txi down the bank of the Ogeechee
canal; the fifth will be to the Lamar and
Gordon wharves; the sixth will join with
the Deptford property; the seventh will bo
down East Broad street into Bay and join
with the Bay street wharves; ana the eighth
will bo above the city, across the river to
TERMINAL FACILITIES WANTED.
What the road specially desires to secure
is terminal facilities, if property suitable
for this purpose cannot be purchased at a
fair and reasonable price the new food will
lie connected with some existing road. Maj.
West asked the members of the Board of
Trade to lend him a helping hand in gain
ing an entrance into Savannah, pledging
his enterprise Pi guard and promote the in
terest of the city and its citizens.
Capt. F. M. Hull, President of the Board
of Trade, asked Maj. Weat what connection
the now lin# will make with existing lines
To this, after a moments’ thought, Maj.
West replied that he would prefer his
friends in New York to answer. “Within
tho past six months,” lie said, “according to
the afunufactKrcrs Record, over $30,000,-
000 have been invested in Alaliama, and
evidences of a Ikm un are seen in every town
rich in mineral wealth.”
Maj. West then exhibited maps, showing
his lino and its territory, and after a talk
with several members of the board, Capt.
Hull addressed Maj West and his associates,
and said that he cheerfully pledged them
the sincere support of the board and that
the people of Savannah will render every
assistance in their power to promote the
Gustave Eckstein. Esq., and family loft
for New York yesterday, and will spend the
remainder of the summer North.
Mr. C. B. Townsend has resigned the
Secretary and Trcasurership of the Naval
Stores Manufacturers’ Protective Associa
M. A. Cohen, Esq., who has been spend
ing a month with his friends in New Jersey,
has returned home. His health, which had
been quite poorly for a year or so past, has
been entirely restored.

THE NEW PAVING BIEL.
Approved by Council and Its Passage
by the Legislature to be Urged.
A special meeting of the City Council was
held yesterday for the purpose of amending
the new street paving bill, which will be
introduced at the present session of the Leg
islature. The alterations are slight and do
not materially change the reading of the
bill as it was first prepared.
The joint committee on lire and streets
and lanes, to which was referred at the last
mooting the communication in regard to
the unsafe condition of Bt. Andrew’s hall,
submitted the following resolution, which
Resolved, That the owners of St. Andrew's
Hall proceed at once to repair ttie wails of the
building in the manner suggested by the. As
sistant City Surveyor. Mr. J. de Bruyn Kops,
that the Council proceed to try the q* .estiou
whether it lie a nuisance and if so to provide for
the abatement thereof.
Corporation Attorney Adams stated in
behalf of the owners of the building that it
will tie repaired at once and put in a safe
Sweetwater Park Hotel, Salt Springs,
The existence of these springs has been
known in the neighborhood for many years
and their saline properties fully recognized.
Indeed, we are informed that duiring the
late war an attempt was made to utilize them
by the manufacture of salt,for the benefit of
the army and It he families of soldiers of the
Confederacy. But it failed, perhaps on ac
count of the medicinal qualities of the water
or the lack of appropriate apparatus. After
this the springs seemed to have almost
dropped out of sight until within the last
two or three years their curative effects
upon diseases or the liver, skin, kidneys and
stomach began to attract special attention.
Then it was, fortunately for the afllicted,that
a wealthy and enterprising Atlanta company
composed of such potential names as Messrs.
Marsh, Inman and Watson, resolved to de
velop this hidden fount and extend its bless
ings to the whole country. Accordingly
they purchased the sito and 300 acres adjoin
ing, and forthwith the work of redeeming
the wilderness and the erection of costly
improvements commenced, and has been
pushed forward with great energy ever
since. The spring, surrounded by primeval
forest trees and huge, grotesque-looking
masses of granite rock scattered around as
though hurled hither and thither by giants
at play, is picturesquely situated in Doug
lass county, near the line of Cobb and Doug
lass, and has been substantially tubed
through the solid rock and its surplus waters
conducted to a neat bath house' several hun
dred feet distant, where cold and hot min
eral baths are served at all hours. Soon tho
grounds in the artistic hands of a skilled
landscape gardener will be transformed into
a scene of perfect beauty and loveliness.
Nature has been lavish in her gifts, and the
task will not be difficult. These embellish
ments, including offices, billiard rooms, etc.,
it isestimated will cost $5,000. But the great
attraction of tho place is tho Sweetwater
Park Hotel, which, though not quite com
pleted, was opened to tho public a few days
ago. It is under the charge of Mr. J. D.
Billings, late of the Traverse Hotel, Michi
gan, a courteous gentleman who lias had
twenty-five yean? experience in the busi
ness. His assistant, T. 0. Daniel, who pro
sides in the office, understands the knack of
making himself agreeablo to all. This mag
nificent. structure in all its appointments is
undoubtedly the most elegant and elabo
rately finished hotel at any watering place
in the South. It cost, including furniture,
fixtures and railway to the soring, will ex
ceed s'-.’00,000. All the building material,
as far as practicable, such as marble, slate,
lumber, ornamental woods, brick, etc., is of
Georgia origin. Even the work of planing,
matching and framing the wooden mute
rials was all done on the premises. The
ornamental wainscotting, panel work, etc.,
of tiie interior is of curled and polished
Georgia pine, and is much admired. Every
modern convenience and invention has been
supplied, sir'll as incandescent electric light
for each chamber, electric bells and fire
alarms, the latest patent of water closets,
warm and cold mineral baths on every
floor, the most complete lire protection,
promenades and coi'ridol-s thousands of feet
m length for invalids unable to exercise out
doors, au elegant dining room with ceiling
of pine and cherry that will seat 1130 guests,
one of the most spacious and handsome ball
chambers in the South, and in short all that
heart could wish for.
The parlors, with their magnificent mir
rors and soft Wilton carpets, are especially
elegant, while the bedchambers are provided
with the best hair mattresses and nicely
furnished. As it is intended to keep the
house open all the year round for the accom
modation of Northern visitors, eacli cham
ber has a fireplace and coal grate. In the
office the fronts of the wide chimney places
aro of handsome Georgia marble and the
tesselated floors of the same material. The
kitchen, steam laundry, bakery, etc., are
all very complete, and two huge elevated
tanks with u capacity of 9,000 galions each,
fed from the spring by piping and steam
pump, and affording a natural pressure of
twenty-six inches, could flood tho premises
with water in a few minutes. A narrow
gaugo railway, equipped with steam
dummy and neat coaches, is used for the
transportation of guests to and from tho
spring. At present there are alsvat 100 visi
tors, but a very large number have taken
rooms and are coming in daily. Mr. Bill
ings can comfortably entertain over 300
guests, ami his table menu and corps of ser
vants are all that the most fastidious could
desire. The hotel is charmingly located
and accessible by two railroads from all
parts of the country. Read advertisement

Matters of Money and Management
About Various Lines.
The Central railroad has subscribed $l,OOO
to tlie Piedmont Exposition. The Richmond
and Danville has also subscribed $l,OOO, be
sides giving 30 per cent, of the receipts from
Atlanta to the exposition grounds and build
ing side tracks and erecting a depot. The
East Tennessee road has subscribed $1,500,
and the Western and Atlantic road $l,OOO.
Pat Calhoun, Esq., is interested in the ex
position, and besides obtaining several sub
scriptions has asked the directors of the At
lanta and West Point also for $l,OOO.
Tho directors of the Georgia Southern
and Florida railroad met in Macon on
Wednesday and considered the location of
the line of the road through Dooly county.
The people of Vicuna aro very anxious that
the road should pass through their town,
and a delegation was present to press its
claims. A proposition was made by Mr. Sparks
in behalf of tho company that inasmuch as
the road could not pass through the town it
would locate anew Vienna and giv e the
people as much land as is now occupied by
a town, and in addition build them anew
court house. This proposition is now being
considered by the delegation.
The Spartanburg Connection.
General Manager Belknap has returned
from Spartanburg, where he has been to
arrange a track connection between the
Port Royal and Western Carolina road and
the Richmond and Danville and Asheville
and Spartanburg roads. The failure of a
track connection at Spartanburg has inter
fered with the through service between Sa
vannah and Asheville. The distance between
the Port Royal and Western Carolina
terminus and the Asheville and Spartan
burg road is short, and an option
has Deen secured on the property through
which the connecting tracks will run. As
soon as the connection is made, passengers
leaving Savannah st 5:30 o’clock p. m., will
reach Asheville the next morning for break
fast, and the present route will be shortened
about sixty-five miles.
Opening the Georgia Midland.
The eastern division of the Georgia Mid
land railroad will be opened for travel to
day. Passengers leaving here on the Cen
tral at 7:10 a. in. will arrive at Griffin at
3:32; leave Griffin at 4:10 and reach Warm
Springs, Meriwether county, at 5:38. The
trains will lie operated regularly between
Griffin and Columbus, making connections
with the Central.
