#*OW THE HOT SPELL AFFECTED
THE SALE OF ICE.
The Ice Companies Pushed to Their
Utmost-Men and Horses Buffer from
the Torrid Rays of Old Boh—Gossipy
Notes on a Cold Subloct.
“No, sir, this is not the ico men’s paro
disc, although the average citizen may
think so," remarked Mr. J. F. Cavanaugh,
of the Knickerbocker Ice Company, in re
sponse to a query regarding the increased
demand for ioe during the hot spell. Mr.
Cavanaugh further explained:
“You see, a long hot spell like this is [far
different from a day or two’s high tempera
ture Such a long stretch of hot and sultry
weather jadalyses us, so to speak, aud not
only entails extra expenses, but places a
large amount of extra work on the men and
animals. The men have their hands full in
ordinary weather, and when they are over
taxed wdnle almost unfit for work, it does
not take long to wear them out. The men
go out at I o’clock in the morning and
seldom during this hot spell get
home earlier than il to 11 o’clock p. m.
These long hours with their arduous work
soon produce this result, anti in a short time
the men are completely knocked out. It is
the same way with the stock, in such a soar
We lost one fine mule the other day,
worth $250, it being acclimated, which, by
the way, is of great importance in estab
lishing a mule’s value in this climate. Our
stock is all run down, and is in bad shape,
the direct result of the hard pulling in the
deep sand of many of tho streets
tinder the hot sun. At night
tho mules all have to be cared for very care
fully, rubbed down, dried, fed and watered
'carefully, and here is whore the stablemen
Cuff or long hours too, as they are the last to
leave, ana must be tho first at the stable in
she morning to see that all the animals are
fa good shape to go out on the routes.
Besides the expense of purchasing extra
*tock, we are worrying all the while for
fear mat some of the animals will break
down, and with all those troubles to annoy
us you can readily see that the ice men do
not‘enthuse’ much over the advent of a
long period of extremely hot weather. Of
course, we sell more ice, but the consequent
Increase of exiiensus, tho worry and trouble,
and above all the general ‘breakdown’
f the force, fully covers the increased
“About what was tho increase, in amount
of ioe sold, say during t.he extremes, be
tween the 10th and the 00th?” was asked.
WEATHER THE ICE MEN LIKE.
“Well, not so much as you would imagine.
People would not leavo their residences to
any extent during the hot days, and of
course the soda fountains, saloons, etc.,
were leas patronized. But, here are the
figured for a comparison. Ordinarily a
wagon takes out an average of 6,000 pounds.
During the hot spell the average was 6,500
pounds. On Saturday, 16th inst., it car
ried 6,560; Sunday, the 17th,6,660, and Mon
day, the 18th, 7,000 pounds. However, on
Sunday, the 10th, it had 6,6.10 pounds, so
you see there is not such a tremendous in
crease as you would imagine.”
“How about discontinuing one delivery ?”
“We have decided to do that. It is im
possible to keep up the present deliveries in
this weather. Begining with Monday the
wagons will go out at 4 o'clock in the morn
ing. making last delivery at about 3 p. in.
Tiiis will give tho men and the stock a chance
to rest ana recuperate, and I know they need
it. Both conqianies heve agreed on this.
This system is the same as that used in Phil
adelphia, New York and other cities North.”
Mr. Cavanaugh said ioe men prefer, de
cidedly, moderate weather, 80” to ‘JO , than
continued heat with the thermometer up to
85" and 100”.
Here Mr. L. I’. Hart, one of the firm and
the general manager, was sought out and
•‘Of course,” he said, “we sold more ice by
a largej >er cent, during tho hot spell, but i
doubt if we made much extra profit from it.
You see in ordinary weather the horses, have
all they want to pott. When you add to
this a thermometer of lUT or so in the sun
it breaks down both men ami ani
mals. It is a hard business, there
is so much heayy lifting to Ih< done. Then
again the pettv details worrv one almost to
distraction. The ice has all to be brushed
off carefully, and if the least bit of saw
dust adheres to it the men will hear from
the thrifty housewife on the subject in em
piiatic language. Then they will lie asked
to carry it down to the basement or up to
the garret, no difference how many flights
of stairs. Why, here the other day we were
asked to come to a house off the route twice
a day, leaving 2jq pounds each time for a
flve-ixiuiid ticket. That is only one of the
hundred or more vexations we encounter.
We lost no horses in this hot term, but sev
eral dropped in the streets and required lots
of working over liefore they recovered. Wo
made tho experiment of using horse- in the
place of mules and like them better. If
treated right they are sujierior.”
THE DAILY CONSUMPTION.
“What difference did you in the
sabs, made during tho ten uays of hot

the wagons averaged about 4,000 pounds

the horses. A great loss is cause, 1 also by

Fully forty-five to fifty tons of ioe (say
88,000 pounds) are used daily in Savannah.

COOL WEATHER COMING.
Indications of a Lower Temperature
The thermometer showed that yesterday
was not an extremely warm ilay, but it was
eery uneonifortablo until a little blow in
tho afternoon fanned tho hot air from the
city aud substituted fresh, cool air for it.
The morning bore a striking resemblance
to the very hot mornings of two weeks ago,
but the mercury did not climb so high.
It seemed to find some obstruc
tion at 82", and thou-di it struggled
to get past that mark it was unsuccessful,
and when the wind storm can.e up it knocked
It bock to 74". Tiie average foe the day was

the Hio Grande valley. Tho Galveston cot

of 88", but lti this district the average was
86", and Jesup tried to raise it by running
up to 100". It was raining pretty generally
In tho lake rogion last night, but there were
no indications that the storm would come

that it will be cooler to-day than it was yes

HO, FOR TYBEEI
Arrangements Perfected for Street
Capt. J. 11. Johnston, the President of tho
City and Suburban railway, referring to
the communication in yesterday’s Morning
News in regard to having street car con
nection with Tybee railway trains, stated
that the street rail mail company had placed
a limn on duty charged exclusively with
looking after the comfort and convenience
of those going to and coining from the
island, and that special cars are at
his command for that purpose.
President Johnston stated that whatever
could be done for the accommodation of the
traveling public would have his attention.
He said that as soon as the city authorities
granted permission curves would lie put on
at the intersections of Liberty street with
Whitaker and Abercom streets and passen
gers would then lie landed near their homes.
He was endeavoring to get permission, hut
for some reason ho had not succeeded. It is
to be hoped that the city authorities
will at once take action and give the com
pany the right to put in the curves, so that
the city will have better street railroad fa
cilities. Tlie trains for Tybee will Is' loaded
to-day as usual w r ith those who will enjoy
tile delicious and refreshing sea breezes and
the delights of surf bathing. Hot days are
not known on Tybee, and it is a great treat
to si said at least a few hours there drinking
hi the pleasures the island affords.
PERRY M. DeLEON INDICTED.
The Correspondence Between Him and
West Concluded by the Grand Jury.
Tlie spicy correspondence between Mr.
Perry M. DeLeon and Charles N. West,
Esq., culminated yesterday in the grand
jury room of the city court, where an in
dictment was found against Mr. DeLeon for
criminal libel. In mailing his circulars to
various (lersons throughout the city, Mr. De-
Leon sent one to Hon. William D. Harden,
judge of the city court. Judge Harden enclos
ed the circular with his card in an envelope
and sent it to Solicitor General duliignon.
The grand jury of the City Court met
yesterday and the case was presented to it
and the indictment was the result. A bench
warrant was issued for Mr. DeLeon and
served upon him, hut lie gave bond in the
sum of $5OO, with Mr. Joseph Hull as
security, and left last night for Atlanta.
Tho punishment for criminal liliel
is a fine of not more than $l,OOO
or imprisonment in the jail for not
more than six months, or in the chain gang
for not more tluui tw elvo mouths, or one of
the last two and a fine.
Ml'. De la'ou said last night that he was
very well pleased with the action of the
grand jury, and lie hopod the case would
come to trial, as it would give him an op
portunity that ho would like to have of
proving his assertions.
OVERCOME BY THE HEAT.
Grocers Find Great Difficulty in Keop
ing Their Horses Up.
I.ast week's unprecedented heat cuused
great inconvenience to J. G. Nelson & Cos.,
tlie grocers under the Guards’ armory, and
their patrons, in that it so affected their de
livery hoi-sos that they were almost entirely
unable to make their customary trips. Yes
terday oiio of them fell in his tracks and tho
other was still very sick. In view of theo
fai ls the firm respectfully request their pat
rons and friends to view witli leniency any
shortcomings in their delivery service.
Nearly every business firm in the citv has
been similarly unfortunate, but Messrs.
Nelson .V Cos. give assurance to alltluitthcy
will do their utmost to prevent a recurrence
of the tardiness. In the meantime they call
attention to the fact that the prices or gro
| eerie* remain at the same rock-liottom fig
ures, and that the firm is constantly making
a drive on one or more articles that they
manage to purchase at an extra low price.
Remember the place under tile Guards’ ar
mory, and don’t forget that tho firm’s tele
phone is No. 2-K7.
Mr. M. 11. Connolly Appointed Private
Secretary to Gea. Alexander.
Mr. M. H. Connally, formerly chief clerk
and stenographer in t-upt. Fleming's olllce,
(.f the Savannah, Florida and item rail
road, has boon appointed private secretary
to Gen, Alexander, President of the Central
railroad. Mr. Connally came to Savannah
some six years ago comparatively a stronger,
mid by strict and assiduous attention to his
duties he has gradually worked his way up
on the rounds of the ladder and is now in a
fair way to make his way in the world.
Mr. Andrew Anderson, who formerly oc
euphsl the pisitioii of private s>xivtniy to
Gen. Alexander, will leave for New Murk
to night to assume his duties ns Hoerotary of
the Mexican National Railroad Company.

The Marietta and North Georgia road is

refuses to permit its extension to Atlanta,
and tiie cause of this refusal is the fact that
it would compete with the property of the

Thursday W. W. Onbs, a merchant of

to him. The two me 1 were not exactly

Tho man who Mr. C >mbs saw was named
W. B. Ault, and ho a one time was also a
merchant of Kinggoi He, it is said, about
two years ago came < im the State of Indi
ana and opened up a rocery store. He rep
resented himself as l> ng a man of moans,
though sulisequcnt' nevolopments showed
that his starting cash was rather limited. At
first. as tho story goes, Mr. Ault
conducted business on the square,
and in a short while his credit be
came No. 1. In i about, one year after
opening It became noised around that Mr.
Ault was selling goods wonderfully cheap,
and, it was claimed, way below tho cost
prices. After he had gotten his stock nearly
cleaned out, which was about one year ago,
he skipped the pleasant little mountain vil
lage and has not been seen by any inhab
itant thereof until ha came in contact
Thursday with Mr. Qombs. In the mean
time his creditors have suffered on his ac
The two men did not speak as they passed
by, though each eyed the other for all he
was worth. My. Ault hastily hurried up
Eim street and Mr I ’ombs, catching sight
of Policeman DemUwy, soon put him on
the track. Mr. Ault seemed in some hurry,

with the man and kept him in tow while he
did some telegraphing. He wired two or
three of Ault’s did creditors, and among
them was the firm of J. M. Teach & Cos.,
Adairsville. This firm referred Combs to
their Mr, Boyd, who was then in Rome, and
that gentleman coon was found. He was
very glad to see Ault and wn* anxious that he
should settle the little bill cxrod by him to
his establishment, This Anlt agreed to do,
and Mr. Boyd told him that so far as he
was concerned, Ihe would not prosecute
him. The cither Creditors telegraphed had

An Ox' Boiled Whole.
From tie London Times.
An experiment rare, if not unprecedent
ed, was tried on jubilee clay at Liss, a vil
lage on the Bonefon and Southwestern rail
way in Hampshire'. It consisted in boiling
a bullock whole, in addition to one roasted
the evening before.
A hole dug in tlie gro*rirt was built over
with bricks. Into the latter was built a
tank, and into the tank w as lowered the car
cass, placed within a case formed by iron
bars, to w hich chains were attached. Pul
leys from a scaffolding immediately above
raised and lowered the ox, of which the
head and carcass were sewn up separately
in strong canvas. Carrots were lioiled
with it, and potatoes inclosed in bags,
making gallons of rich soup. The fat was
remove'd from the carcass before boiling.
A t 5:80 p. rn. the carcass, which had been
boiled about .seven hours, was raised from
the tank, two bands playing “God Save the
Queen” and “Rule Britannia” on the scaf
folding above. It was placed on a large
bier-like vehicle and carried on the shoul
ders of twelve men to the booth where it
was to Ice cut up, the bands playing in
front. A beautiful wreath and flags were
placed over the ox, and the gentlemen wdio
gave the bullucks, the butcher and an as
sistant were Isirne along with it over the
heads of tb crowd. The meat was pro
nounced excellent, and was certainly well
cooked. The huge knife and fork used on
this occasion were especially manufactured
for the purpose in the village.
