THE BAY STREET DEAL.
THE CITY'S COMPROMISE, AND
WHAT LED TO IT.
A’Statement of the Claims of Both
Sides to the Property Lying: West of
the City Exchange - Why the Case
Has Gone to the Legislature.
The bill now ponding before the legisla
ture regarding the compromise made by
the city and the claimants of that part of
Bay street, or as it was formerly called the
Btrand. lying between the City Exchange
and Whitaker street, is the subject of a good
deal of inquiry, and many people have (
askod to know on what ground Wilcox, ;
Gibbs & Cos. and the Waldburg estate claim .
property that has always been
looked upon as a part of
the public domain. The compromise j
has awakened a good dual of opposition, and
a number of the Bay street property owners
have sent a memorial to the Legislature ask
ing that the compromise should not be con
firmed. Representatives of both sides
will urge their respective claims
before the Assembly, and there is every
prospect of a warm contest before the bill is
finally disposed of. The facts upon which
the opposing claims rest are few and simple,
but as it would require the decision of a
court to settle the rights in the case ths ap
peal to the Legislature has been taken.
Several years ago the claimants closed up
Factor’s Walk upon which their buildings
front. The city thought that in so doing the
claimants had encroached upon the public
domain, so Mayor I tester instructed City
Marshal Wade to remove the obstructions.
To prevent this the claimants obtained from
the court a temporary injunction and filed a
bill setting up a claim to the property be
tween their acknowledged side lines, and
extending as far south as the north line of
Bay street. The bill states that their deeds
to the property bound the lots on the south
bv the north line of Bay street, and that
these deeds give them the title to the prop
erty in dispute.
The city filed an answer, in which it
states that when the city of Savannah was
first laid out the Strand was set apart us
public property and has remained so ever
Since; it claims that the buildings now
standing upon the claimants' acknowledged
property front on their south line and that
between the front of those buildings and
the north line of Bay street ts the property
of the city. It further assorts that no deed
or conveyance can rightfully carry with
it the Strand or any portion
of it. In support of this claim
the city cites the action of the Legislature
in passing an act giving to a chief justice
of Georgia that portion of the Strand lying
west of Jefferson street, and argues that
unless the Strand had been a part of the
public domain the Legislature could not so
The bill and answer have been filed in
court for two years, but have never come to
trial. The subject has been brought before
the Council a number of times, and it was
intended to urge the case in the court and
have the question settled as soon
as possible, but it never came
to trial, and finally the claimants
made a proposition to the Council to com
promise the matter by withdrawing the
city’s claim to the property in consideration
of the sum of *15,000 to be paid by the
Claimants to the city. The Council seemed
to think favorably of the plan, but did not
think the compensation sufficient, and re
plied that it would consent to with
draw the claim and compromise for
$30,000, but the claimants thought that too
mnch and finally they agrrexl on $30,000,
the conditions being that the compromise
should be authorized and ratified by the
Legislature, thus giving to the claimants an
undisputed title to the property, and the bill
now pending is the one consented to in the
The question of the title to the Strand is
not new, in fact, it is more than 100 years
old. It is knowm that in 1787 the matter
was brought before the General Assembly
and a commission was appointed to inquire
into it and report. Whether it did so, or
whether it was unable to obtain any infor
mation on the subject is not known, for
there is no record of a report made by that
commission, and no record of any of its
A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE.
A. Drive That Ended in a Wedding—A
Pair of Suprised Parents.
All Marshall House habitues well know
“Gus” Daniels, the genial and affable head
clerk, who is a genius in his way and who
never does things as other people do. Mr.
Daniels, like ali other right-minded young
men, has, or had, a sweetheart way up in
the mountains of North Georgia. His fellow
clerks chaffed him about the sweet-scented,
square envelopes that came so often, but his
pensive smile disarmed their most pointed
tests. Finally, about Aug. 10, he left on
his vacation, ostensibly for Tallulah Foils.
Monday morning last he returned wear
ing the tame smile, but the boys say that
they thought it was a little sweeter
this time. He astonished one of
them, for when he was asked
about that charming young lady up at
Gainesville, he replied “I’ve married that
little girl. She is Mrs, Daniels now.” This
took the boys aback, but they finally con
cluded he was joking, because they detected
him addressing and sending a letter to
“Miss Ella May Ashford.” But Tuesday a
letter was seen in the mail box directed to
“Mrs. Ella May Daniels,” aud then the
boy* pitched upon him for an explanation
■nd full particulars of the happy event.
Briefly, the story as given was this:
After visiting the Falls, Mr. Daniels
turned his steps towards Gainesville, and
the event of Friday shows how well sly
Cupid got in his work. Last Friday after
noon Mr. Daniels and Miss Ella May Ash
ford started oft for a drive. Noticing dark
clouds in the sky, Mr. Ashford asked if they
would return early, to which his
daughter replied, “Oh yes, papa, we
will return early.” The course of that
eventful ride is not given, save
the fact, as afterwards learned, that Rev.
C. B. LaHatte tied the knot. Returning
•bout sundown, they drove up to the house,
and “Miss" Ashford alighted. Good-hyes
were exchanged, and Mr. Daniel returned
the team to the stable, and catchiug the af
ternoon train, was soon whirling along to
ward Atlanta, musing, doubtless, upon
“the girl I left behind me.” Mrs. Daniels
entered the house and told her mother of
the marriage Her parents were greatly
astonished, of course, and could not iinag
ihe it possible. But “all’s well that ends
well.” and the pretty bride was congratu
lated <>n all sides.
Mr. Daniels is preparing a suite of rooms
for their occupancy at the Marshall House,
and intends to have them fitted up in a
most exquisite manner. Mi's. Daniels is a
very popular lielle of Gainesville. Mr.
Daniels lias hosts of friends here, and is
well und favorably known throughout

i Terrific Gales ar.d Rough Seas Passed
j The schooner James K. Boyles was towed
‘ up to the city yesterday with her mizzen
j mast gene. She Imre the appearauce of
j having gone through a very heavy cyclone.
J She left New York Aug. 13, with a cargo
lof cement bound to Galve ton, Tex., and
| experienced fair aud good weather until
; Aug. 18, after crossing trio Gulf Stream. At
J 13:30 o'clock in the rooming site took a
gale from the cast northeast, which lasted
j until the next day at 4 o’clock in the even
! mg. On Saturday, Aug. do, at 8 o’clock, the
wind was blowing heavy from tlio east south
east. Everything was reefed cios- down.
I The wind continued to blow heavily until
J Sunday at uoon, when a Imacan light wus
made and the wind hauled around to the
northwest and blew away the foresail and
trysail, these sheets being carried to keep
the vessel from drifting ashore.
At length the vessel hauled away to the
southward. By Monday morning the wind
blew a terrible hurricane from the west
ward and (luring the night she hud the foro
gnfr carried away. On the afternoon of
Aug. 33 the wind canted around to the
southward, the vessel going all this time
under bare jioles. The wind blew fright
fully and the sea came aboard
th‘> vessel and flooded all the cabins,
galleys and forecastle, wetting the clothing
and ship stores with salt water. The wind
gradually veered around to the southeast on
Tueeday. At 3 o’clook in the morning the
mizzenmast came down with all the rigging
attached, having broken about twelve feet
above the deck. In falling it struck the
covering of the afterhatch, punchiug a hole
dear through the cover, and going down
into the cargo below. Great quantities of
water came aboard at the time, and poured
in on the cargo all that night.
The vessel could not keep any 1 ights, be
cause the sea was constantly washing over
her and flooding the cabin. The wind all
this time was blowing a furious hurricane.
On Wednesday, Aug. 24, the wind grad
ually slackened up, but the ship ran for
three days in a very bad sea. On Thursday
the crew succeeded in getting the broken
Capt. Robinson says that the hurricane
revolved and kept his vessel moving round
and round with it and she was unable to
run out of it. Fridny there was a calm, but
heavy rolling sea. The ship made sail for
the nearest American port, again
crossing the Gulf Stream. On the
29th she encountered another gale from the
oast ward with a bad sea on. At 3 o’clock
in the morning she broke another foregaff
and split the foresail. The heavy sea con
tinual with the wind, which hauled around
to east north-east. The ship sailed under
bare poles, in fact she had
very few sails left. The sea
washed the vessel considerably, and a
quantity of water was taken aboard and all
the fresh water was spoiled by sea water.
She was spoken by the schooner Benja
min F. Lee, which proffered assistance, but
it was refused, as Capt. Robinson thought
he (lid not need it. At length the schooner
took an rlheast wind and came into this
port. The entire crew was completely
worn out by the experience through which
they had passed, and the Captain is suffer
ing from the loss of three nights’ sleep. A
cargo survey was held on the vessel, the
board consisting of Capt. Eddy, of
the brig Clara Pickens, Capt. Lozier,
of the schooner Welcome R. Beebe accom
panied by H. T. Botts, Esq., underwriters
agent. Some of the cargo was found to lie
damaged by sea water, nut very little to
speak of. The vessel will have anew miz

NEW WELLS TO BE BORED
THOSE NOW IN USE DO NOT FUR
NISH ENOUGH WATER.
The Capacity of the New Pump in Ex
cess of the Supply Indlcatlono that
the Power of Artesian Wells May
Be Taxed Too Far-The Cause of the
For awhile yesterday the water that
came through the pipes was muddy and
discolored, and people began to fear that
something had happened to prevent tho use
of the artesian water. Supt. Miller was
seen and he said that the large pump began
“knocking" in the morning, and the river
water was turned into the maim through
tlio small pump while the large one was
examined. Ho found in the new pump
some iron filings and dirt that had been left
in it when it was shipped here, and there
were also some shells wh.ch had been
brought up by the water. When it was
cleaned out it was started up again and
there has been no more trouble.
THE WELLS VOT EQUAL TO THE PUMP.
The pump has a capacity of 7,500,000 gal
lons per twenty-four hours, but the wells
do not furnish that much and the supply to
to the city is only- about 6,500,000 gallons.
Eleven of the wells are in use, and the re
maining one will be connected with the
“Is a supply of 6,500,000 gallons per day
sufficient tor the cityf” Mr. Miller was
“Yes,” he replied, “it will answer all
ordinary demands, but if there should bo
an unusual call, such as t jiere would if there
was a big fire, I would have to turn on the
river water. 1 will connect the unused well,
but I don’t know how much it will add to
the supply. It will be but little, however.’’
“The supply of water will not than be
equal to the capacity of the new pump?”
“No, it will be nearly 1,000,000 gallons
short, but lam going to bore more wells. I
don’t know what the result will be though.
The pumping from all these wells has cut
channels from ono to the other through the
porous rock that holds the water. Being
thus connected the pumping from one af
fects the others.
THE WELLS AFFECT EACH OTHEK.
“When I shut off the pump the water
flows from the unused well at the rate of
100 gallons a minute, but when tho pumn is
working and drawing water from the other
eleven wells the water in this one barely
rises to the surface, and trickles down in a
small stream. The first well I bored was
only 3 inches in diameter and the water
rose in it with a pressure of
eleven pounds. Then I bored a 6-inch well
just a few feet from the first, and this well
drew water from the other so tnat it reduced
the pressure of tho 2-inch well to about seven
pounds. I then bored a 10-inch well 200 feet
away. That had no effect upon the others,
and when I had bored a number
of them, at a distance of from
75 to 125 feet apart, they all
spouted freelv, each independently, anil
when water was pumped from one it had no
effect uiion the other; but now that the
wuter has cut channels lictween them, the
pressure on each is regulated by the others.”
WILL THE NEW WELLS SPOUT?
“Have the twelve wells that have been
bored exhausted the power of the sutiterrn
nean stream to throw its water to the sur
“I do not know. It is possible that the
new wells will not flow above the surface,
and if that is the case we will have to bore
them further apart. The twelve that we
now have are all in a space covering not
more than two acres, and we may have to
spread out over more ground than that.
The only objection to that is that it will
cost so much more to run the mains from
the wells to the works than if they were
nearer together, but still the expense will
not be very great.”
Hpeaking of the trouble occasioned by a
short supply while the change was going on
Mr. Miller said that it all would have been
avoided if his orders had been carried out.
THE ENGINEERS’ NEGLIGENCE.
He instructed his two engineers to give the
small pump a thorough overhauling so that
it would lie ready for use when the large
one was taken down, but they did not do it,
and when the small pump was started it
failed to supply sufficient water, and the
second night that it was run the pressure
dropped from 33 to 17 pounds. Believing
that the pump had Yioen put in good condi
tion, Mr. Miller did not attribute the
trouble to it, but thought that a leak had
occurred somewhere. He looked for it. but
could find none. He then thought
there must be something wrong with
the wells, and turned on river water, but
the pressure was no better. Asa last re
sort lie took the small pump apart and then
he found that the engineers had not carried
out his orders, and that all the pump valves
were worn out. Had it not been for the
engineers’ negligence there would have been
no shortage at all.

Charleston, S. C., Sept. I.—Charleston
won the third consecutive game from New
Orleans this afternoon. The visitors had
kicked so much about Simmons’ umpiring

of their best men permanently disabled

not satisfactory to either side, although

Upward of a dozen afi-night prayer
meetings were in progress Wednesday night
in different parts of the city. The partici
pants wire all colored people, who have a
very vivid recollection of the events of the
night of Aug. 81, 18811. Some of the meet
ings were held in the churches, hut most of
them were conducted out-of-doors in va'jant
lots. No wnite religious meetings were held
as far as known.
The conveyance of the extensive “guard
house” property to the United States govern
ment has been completed, and the papers
were recorded in the mesne conveyance of
fice Wednesday. It will require from two to
three months to perfect the plans for the
new post office and court rooms, and the
city will have the use of the premises dur
ing this time. The new station house will
be completed and occupied in November
next. A small sum of the purchase money
has been left in the United States Treasury,
pending the settlement of a novel claim of
ownership in a part of the west wall of the
guard house stables.
Xews and Courier: A prominent rice
factor, who was asked yesterday to give
his opinion, based, of course, upon informa
tion received from his correspondents, stated
that the outlook for rice this season was
very encouraging. In the year 1888-87, he
saiu the receipts of rough rice wore as fol
lows at the points named: At Wilmington,
350,0U0 bushels; at Georgetown. 287,482
bushels; at Charleston, 888,172 bushels. The
mils here pounded 80,803 barrels. As far as
his information wont bo thought that the
present crop would not be less than last
year’s, eithar in North Carolina. South Car
olina or Georgia Every day, he said, the
advices from the crops on the Savannah
rivei' were bettor. At first it was reported
that the entire crop had been destroyed, but
now' it appears that this is not the case. Let
ters every day show that the damage is not
as great as was at first intimated. The
rice on the Pee Dee, Waccamaw, North
Santee, Cooper, Combahee and Ashepoo
rivers was reported to be in splendid condi
tion, and, barring a September gale, there
was every reason to believe that the coming
crop would certainly equal and perhaps ex
ceed the crop of last year.
Maj. C. F. Hard, who left Charleston for
his new home in Bessemer, yesterday after
noon, was presented, Wednesday, with a
handsome gold wa eh and chain, a token of
the esteem of his friends and admirers. The
presentation was made by Capt. Simeon
Hyde, a life-long friend and fellow-soldier
cf Maj. Hard. The watch is inscribed as
follows: “Presented to Maj. C. F. Hard by
his Charleston friends, Sept. 1, 1887.” The
chain is what is known as a “cable” chain,
with anchors and a compass, a pleasant re
minder to the recipient of his salt water as
sociations. Maj. Hard goes to Bessemer,
Ala., to assume the duties of secretary of
the Carolina Real Estate Company. At a
recent meeting of tl“ directors, Capt. Hyde
was elected treasurer of the company, to
fill the vacancy caused by Maj. Hard’s
resignation of that office. The Caro
lina Real Estate Company, by
the way, is almost entirely a Charleston
corporation, although its operations are con
fined to the new city of Bessemer. The
company was organized May 25, 1887, at
which time the city of Bessemer existed on
paper only. The capital stock, $BOO,OOO, was
subscribed, with tne exception of about
820,000, entirely in Charleston. The corpo
ration consists of the following persons: \V.
