NA NEWS ITEMS
m AH Sections of the State and
Contracts For Torpedo Slips.
Charleston, Special.-According to
information received from Washing
ton, the work of constructing the tor
pedo headquarters at the Navy T#rd
will be begun immediately and the
first part of thia great portion of tue
new Government plant will be the
building of the slips for which the
Pennsylvania Bridge Company, of
Washington, D. C., was declared the
lowest bidder and received the con
tract. It is thought that this fir
will start their work at onoe, am
the contract required completion in
side of three months the lit day of
December will probably see many of
the little torpedo craft, now in re
serve, at the navy yard at Norfolk,
tied up at their new home. The tor
pedo slips are to cost $48,000 and
will be of the most modern construc
tion. They will be located j in the
southern portion of the yard and near
them will be the equipment build
ing. The plans which will be carried
out call for the construction of r's
piers, all of which will extend into
the river for a considerable distance.
The lasrest of these will be 30 feet
in width and will have a length'from
the shore line of 540 feet. This will
probably be used by the parent shipi
and the larger torpedo boat destroy
ers. The five remaining piers are
to be duplicates, each having a length
of 460 feet, with a width of 10 feet.
The slips on either side of and be
tween these piers will allow for the
easy mooring of about thirty torpedo
boats. The interest taken in the
bidding was very gratifying to the
nevy department, and the award to
thc Pennsylvania Bridge Company
was made afconsiderable discus
sion among the officials of this
branch of the Government. There
? were in the competition a large num
ber of firms, and all of the bids wore
very close. Among the bidders were
contracting firms of Charleston, Sav
annah and many points in the North.
Liet. Walter H. Allen, the civil engi
neer at the yard, was in Washington
when the award was made. Before
the torpedo headquartsrs are com
plete it is expected that many of the
little craft will be' brought to the
Navy Yard from their present place
of reserve at the Norfolk Navy Yard,
and with *hem will come several
large ships that are being used as
parent vessels. The arrival of the
battle ship Texas from Norfolk may
be expected at any time during the
latter part of the present month, and
on her reaching the Navy Yard the
old visitor to Charleston will be at
once placed in commission as station
j ship, as it js termed in the naw.

portant decision along new lints.
There are several cities in. the State
where the water supply is furnished

Th? contract in the various cities
may differ, and in that way there
may be a difference between the case
just decided and the legal status in

ed a derision that a private cition
may sue a Vuter supplying company
for not having a proper wato- supply
in case of fire. Judge Gary, in his
opinion, states that this view of the
liability of tho corporation to the
individual citizen is new, and not
usual, but the issue appears to be
