The Toxaway Dam.
Colonel James L. Orr and his sons
have returned from tho mountains
where they enjoyed camping' for ten
days at Caesar's Head, Buck Forest,
Sapphire, Toxaway nod Cashier's Val
Knowing the interest the citizens !
near the valleys of Kooweo and Sene
ca Rivers felt in the bi? Toxaway dam,
a reporter for the Greenville News
asked Colonel Orr what he thought of
He said, from an crtistio point of I
view, the Toxaway lake and dam were j
beautiful. The water, being perfectly I
olear and smooth, glistened like silver, 1
and reflected the mountains surround- !
ing it like a French plate mirror, but
from an utilitarian point of view he
was differently impressed. Ho thought
engineers who were competent tojudgo
should make a careful examination of
Toxaway river, which rans from the i
foot of Hogback mountain, is about as
large aa Reedy River, and draina a
large extent of the smaller surround- j
ing mountains, and runs very swiftly. I
Indeed, just below the dam the river |
falls probably 100 feet in SOO yards.
Tho dam is about 480 feet long, tB feet I
high, 260 feet at bottom and 2?. feet at
the top, and is made exclusively of
loose stones and dirt, there not being
any masonry or cement used except on
two little drains on top the dirt dam.
Tho dam is 12 feet higher than the
water and this space is act in grass and
the whole lower side of the dam has
been sodded, the top being a drive
The water overflows around tile end
of dam through a Bpace 30 to 40 feet
wide, which has been blasted out of
reasonably sound stone.
Colonel Orr said: "If a continued
rain should fall it is doubtful if this
outlet would discharge the water as
rapidly OB it collects from the moun
tain sides and if the water ever rose
above the top of the dirt dam it wou' \
wash it away In two hours. The ex
tant of the dac? can hardly be app. e
dated as one cannot get a full view t w
any one point, but it is said to be ;8
miles around, and from 60 to 75 feet
deep in many places - It took 4 months
and 15 days to All up. Think of that.
"There is one thing abont it that
alarmed me very muon, and which waa
not observed until a careful examina
tion was made of the base of the dam.
There are unquestionably two very
considerable leaks, under and through
the dam, and being of dirt and loose
rock, the probability of their increasing
seems very great. With these leaks
the chances of muskrats burrowing
through the dirt and the possibility of
the overflow not carrying away the
surplus water, I must confesa that I
feel considerable apprehension for the
people living in the valleys, their pro
perty, and the bridges over and dams
on the streams which wonld receive
the waters if the dam should break.
The railroad from Eastatoe, on the
French Broad River, has been comple
ted to one and one-half miles from the
dam, and the Toxaway hotel, on the
lake, with 400 rooms, will be open by
theflrst of August. Mr. Hayes, the
general manager of the railroad and
Toxaway Co., has transformed those
wild and uninhabited mountains into a
paradise, and opened up the finest cli
mate that I know of in the world, to
the tourist. His energy, enterprise
and power of development has been
phenomenal; let ss hope his judgment
as to the safety of the dam is sound,
for if it is not Johnstown and Clifton
floods wonld be insignificant compared
with the loss of. life and property,
which this wonld occasion."-Green
