THIS OYSTFR HILL.
Bomo Views of Dr A. Oernler With Re
gard to It.
Wilmington' Island. Oct. 4 —During a i
Tisit to the city last -Friday I ascertained j
for the first tini * the character of tho oyster
bill now bcf(Hethe Legislature. It is known
that l drafted the terrapin bill, also that
with other* I have contemplated an oyster
law for several years and, as I have l>eeu
asked whether this was my bill, I feel com
pelled to address you an emphatic public
Being an island property owner and,
therefore, a party apparently to be bene
fited by the jtresant bill, and my sons be
ing in the oyster shipping business for sev
eral years, my position seems peculiarly
favorable for just and impartial criticism.
Xs a citizen I disapprove of it, because sec
tion 3 with its ‘"color of title” foreshadows
a possibility, if not intent, of fraudulent ac
quisition of public property; as one inter
ested in the oyster trade I condemn it in
view of its probable unlimited curtailment
ot the public dotnan; as an island property
owner 1 would favor it, but only, if it ap
plied to marshes now truly and honestly be
longing to each sea island plantation, and
such are generally of very limited extent.
It correctly understood ‘"color of title”
means' for instance, if A wishes
to grab any number of acres of the
public marshes he gets 8., who has no claim
whatever to the property, to give him a
title, and after one year it is his, unless
some other party can produce a better one.
Should such a bill pass, all tho most valua
ble oyster grounds would be promptly
placed under “color of title,” in order to
make the title bear as old a date under the
law as possible. But, Mr. Editor, permit
me to embrace this opportunity of bringing
the necessity of the passage of a just and
practical protective oyster law before those
of the public most interested in the subject.
I have beeu located here, at my grand
fathi r’s homestead, for the past twenty-one
years, nearer to, perhaps, the most
valuable oyster grounds south of the
Potomac, and am in a position
to know, and all oystermen will bear
me out, that oysters have very greatly
diminished in quantity. Nor could it have
been otherwise under the improvident and
wasteful practices of oystermen. The banks
too of Raccoon oysters, which formerly
furnished stock for opening, have nearly
all disapeared except near private landings
and now recourse is had to the smaller
tonged oysters for that purpose. Large
quantities of shell and opened oysters are an -
nually shipped north and without protection
the banks may soon be exhausted. When
some years ago I first made the experi
ment of shipping oysters to New York the
Ocean Steamship Company considered it
a case of shipping coals to Newcastle. Last
winter to procure the supply for a ship
ment of 272 gallons opened oysters and fifty
barrels in the shell my sons had to send into
Beaufort county, South Caroliua, under a
license of $25, and this inclusive of the out
put of our own planted grounds aid what
ten oystermen could gather in one week
from the public banks within the county.
A practical oyster law should embrace
the following features:
1. It should be unlawful to take or catch
oysters from the public beds for any pur
pose between May 1 and Sept. 1.
2. Oysters should be culled on the beds
from which they had been taken. (Laws of
3. There should be license of from $2 for
small boats to $5 for sloops under custom
house tonnage. (Law of Maryland.)
4. The use of dredges should be prohib
5. Any citizen should be privileged to
bed or plant oysters under certain condi
6. Planted or bedded oysters should be
protected by law-.
7. The owners of land on the coast should
be entitled to plant oysters to the distance
of 120 feet below low water mark opposite
the marsh lands strictly belonging to tho
plantations, as well as opposite the terra
firma, on taxable land. (The limit of such
marshes may be defined.)
Oysters cannot survive on sandy or soft
muddy bottom. On the coast of Georgia
areas of bottom of proper character are very
limited in extent, frequently consisting of
onlv a few square feet, surrounded by a
wide territory of soft mud. According to
the present law, one may plant oysters in
any one river or creek 120 feet below low
water mark a distance of 500 yards, but
there exists probably nowhere in the [State
of Georgia a continuous area of 20,000
square yards (a trifle over four acres) of
proper bottom, nor could a safe one be made
artificially without great expense, and then
only under most favorable circumstances.
The Maryland law says: “That the owner
or owners of any land bordering on any of
the navigable waters of this State, the lines
of which extend into and are covered by
said waters, shall have the exclusive privi
lege of using the same for protecting, rais
ing, bedding, or depositing oysters within
the lines of their own lands; and any owner
or owners of land lying and bordering upon
any of the waters of this State, shall have
power to locate and appropriate, in any of
the waters adjoining hfs, her or their lands,
one lot of five acres for the purpose of pro
tecting bedding, etc.”
Tho present law gives the owner of island
property only the right to plant oysters op
posite the taxable land, but frequently the
wash of the sand of the taxable property
renders the bottom totally unfit. Thus
Charles Baretow, the most extensive land
owner on this island (1,350 acres) has on a
taxable frontage of two miles on Warsaw
river not a square foot of bottom upon
which an oyster could be planted, while only
opposite the small body of marsh between
his land and Turner's Rocks the bottom is
adapted to oysters. Were I not satisfied
•f the fact that the withdrawal
of these small bodies of marsh
from the public privilege would rather
lienefit the oyster trade eventually, and
would not materially curtail the public do
main. I should withhold my advocacy of
section 7 from self interest, because we pro
cure many more oysters from the natural
lieds than wo could expect from our planted
grounds. Furthermore, every oyster pro
tected or planted becomes of benefit to the
oystermen, because when it spawns there
are thousands of chances to one it will all
float away with the tide to deposit itself as
spat somewhere on public ground.
In consequence of the poor yield more
dead shells than oysters are brought up in
the tongs, and in order to avail themselves
of as much of the tide ns possible the cull
ing out of the dead'shells is deferred until
Ihe boat is filled. Frequently small boats
nre repeatedly emptied into larger ones
and the culling is then performed
in the flood tide, when all
the small unmerchantable oysters
and the dead shells so important as points
of deposit for the spawn are destroyed by
being buried in the mud. Therefore tho ne
cessity ot Section 2. No one regularly en
gaged in the business of oystcring would ob
ject to a reasonable license as a protective
measure. Section 3 might po&ibly have
the effect of compelling occasional oyster
takers to pay more attention to their crops
for a support. A. Okmlkii.

S VEN CORPSES FOUND.
Victims of Thugs and Assassins In tho
Dives of Hurley.
From the yew York Herald.
Hurley,|Wis , Oct. 7.—A most horrible
discovery has Ciei made in this town.
Seven men have beeu found foully mur
Hurley is filled with dives of the lowest
character. One of these haunts of infamy
was situated on the brink of a deep ravine
just off the main street of the village. It
was luckily burned in the great fire aud was
not rebuilt, it was near the ruin that the
terrible secret was disclosed on Monday.
Two hunters started out for game and
chose this ravine to commence operations
in, but before they had gone very far on
their way they suddenly lost their dog and
for some time were unable to find him.
At length they heard him giving veyt to
a prolonged senes of howls and hastened in
the direction of the noise. Upon approach
ing tho place, their olfactory organs were
saluted by a most horrible stench —so terri
ble that they retraced their steps.
They kept whistling and calling to their
dog until he at last followed them, but
bringing with him in his mouth a blood
stained and tattered silk cap such as is com
monly used by trainmen in summer.
The fact that there were some tufts of
human hair adhering to a jagged rent in
the cap, together with the dog’s anxiety to
return to the spot where he had found the
ghastly relic, induced the hunters to brave
the dreadful odor and institute a search.
They went, and what a sight met their
Right behind the ruins of the old dance
house, under some rotten logs, and under a
slight covering of earth, lay seven decom
posed corpses, evidently of murdered men.
There they lay just as their slayers had
thrown them. Some with gaping wounds
and distorted limbs showing that they had
fought hard for their lives, while others lay
huddled up as if their murderers had done
their fiendish w ork while their victims lay
in a drunken stupor.
The hunters informed the proper author
ities and an investigation followed, but no
clew could be found to their identity. The
corpses were so decomposed as to be beyond
recognition, and the fiends that had placed
them there had taken good care to rob
them of everything.
The remains of the seven men were buried
in one grave.
And all those whose systems are run down need
a medicine that will act gently and does not
weaken. Simmons Liver Regulator is not only
mild in its action, but invigorates like a glass of
wine, giving tone and strength to the body.
Extract of a letter from Hon. Alex
ander H. Stephens, of Ga.:
"I occasionally use, when my condition
requires it, I>r. Simmons Liver Regula
tor with good effect. It is mild and suits
me better than more active remedies ”
A Home Remedy
Unequalled by any other. The Regulator is the
best preventive and preparatory medicine. No
matter what the attack, a dose of it will afford
relief, anil in ordinary cases will effect a speedy
cure. Its use for over half a century by thous
ands of people has indorsed it TIIE BEST.
“The value of a household remedy con
sists in its accessibilit y as well as its effi
cacy, and many attacks of disease are
warded off by convenient medicines.
Simmons Liver Regulator is a most
valuable medicine to have in the house,
and I heartily recommend it as the 'ounce
of preventive’ so much talked of aud
wished for.”— T. W. Worrell. Principal
