Tlio case of Lewi? Era nib.-rt. former?
ly engineer on Calcr & Suns* tug W11
lard, becomes more mysterious as time
moves on. Recently it was stated in
the \Mrglhian-Pllot that Brambcrt had
surprised his relatives and friends by
turning up a live man In Baltimore.
It bad bu n supposed for several
.months that he was drowned, but the
Btorles from Newport News and U.ilti
more accounted for his disappearance
by r< ason of having bet n shanghaied
l.y the sailors on a British tramp
steamer at the former port while he
was tin.ler the Influence whiskey. The
news of his having returned to this
country reached his brother, Mr. s. s.
Ernmbcrt, of Suffolk, who came to
Norfolk -.mil went from here to Balti?
more, but did not Had any trace there
of the missing man.
It Kramberi is alive and has returned
to this country his action in slaying
away from his old home und his young
wife, who is now a: Soilthport. N. ?'..
is unexplained. It Is not believed l>.v
his acquaintances that he Is alive, but
tho foundation of the recent plausible
rumor about his having been carried
away oil a British tramp steamer from
Newport News is left unaccptltitcd for.
Both the domestic and business rela?
tions of Ernmbcrt Were satisfactory, it
is said, caier ?v- s.m have taken great
interest in the search for him, and
when the rumor reached them th.tt he
was rillvc in Baltimore they told his
brother to tell him that hlc old position
was open for him when be came back.
He had net been long: married lo a
young woman of Southport. N. <*.. who
was devoted to him, and his last net

appearance was to draw his salary ami

FOURTH WARD SEWERAGE
WHY STREET, SEWER AND DRAIN
BOARD AWARDED CONTRACT,
Mr. J. T. Hofhelmer, President of the
Board of stiv.i. Sower and Drain Com?
missioners, was seen by a VlrgloJun
PHol reporter yesterday evening and
a full statement secured of why the
Heard awarded the contract for the
Fourth Ward sewerage to Guild & Co.
in tin- face of an adverse vote of the
Select Council. This branch of the
Council, it will be remembered, was
called together for tho express pur?
pose ol authorising the Hoard to let
the contract for this sewer work to
Guild & ?'o.. of Chattanooga, Tenn. it
will also be remembered that the Coun?
cil refused lo grant the authority ask
ed by this Hoard.
Guild & Co. are the contractors on
gaged at present hi laying Ibo Bra in
bletoit sewerage Bystcm, they being the
lowest bid i< i s by several thousand
dollars. This company, or rather Mr.
Guild, its he d. submitted to City En
glneer Brooke, at Iiis request, an esti- !
j mate of what it would lay the Fourth
Ward sewws for, this estimate being
I in the snhie basis of their estimate for
the Brumbleton Job. with n slight, In
crease to ? over the increase in the
price of pipe.
City Engineer Brooke gave it as his
I opinion thai ihc increase would not
trover the Increased price of material,
an l luasmui ii as the ettlmnte of Guild I
ft fii. was ?''..mio less than he had esti?
mated ii would c s; for the city to do
the werk, he recommended that the
contra? be given to this company.
The Street, Sewer and Drain Board
looked thoroughly Into the matter. Us
chairman says, nnd I hen unpnimou?ly
decided to accept Guild ft Co.'s b'.d,
which approximated $14.000, but will,
in reality bo leas than thrtt sum. Ihc
estimate being based on so much per
lineal foot. The Street. Sewer ; nd
Drain Board did not tv live n1 that lime
however, tHitl it had the authority to
give mil Ihc contract, and at the in?
stance of the Hoard n special session
of the Councils was ?? lied, but only the
Seleel branch had a quorum. When
that brunch hud refiisi I lo authorise
contracting \vlth?Gulld ft Co. the Board
was confronted with two alternatives.
It had either to let the contract ??>
by or to take upon itseii the authority
and responsible y of awarding It.
<;ulld ft Co. hud submitted a letter
lo the Hoard, stating that they had an
option on sewer piping, which expired
; on the ITth ??!' this month, and owing
to the rapid advance in this material
they would 1? compelled to withdraw
th. lr bid If this option run out before
the contract was ; warded them.
.??.ir. tlbfheimer states ih.it several
members of the Sehet Council were
seen by him and the matter fully ex?
plain, d p. them, ami they at once
agreed that the Heard would do r;ght
In awarding the contract. They said
to Mr. 11..I lie le. r til; ? they did not at
first understand the matter to bo in the
! shape thai it was.
The opinion of City Attorney Tay?
lor was asked as tn whether the Board
had the authority to grant the con?
tract under the circumstances related.

The old Dismal Swamp canal is n
opened and r< ady for business, 'i-'li
canal extends from the village of Deep
Creek, in Norfolk county, to S itith
Mills, N. <?.. a distance of twenty-two
miles. Deep Creek is an arm of the
Elizabeth river, and the village is ai> >ut
iin c o miles front/ that stream, making
the northern terminus of the ? inn
practically at bfwfolk. South Mills is
at the headwaters of the Pasquotahk
river, a tributary of Albernarle .-omni.
The canal, although only twenty-two
miles in length, op. as up 2,500 miles ol
inland navigation, comprising tin- many
I rivers ami streams of the Carolinas.
The waterway Is looked upon by gov?
ernment olflelals and naval men as be
j ing of the greati st value, both in r ai
and war. It will furnish the means of
; Inland ami protected navigation tor thi
smaller vesi'ls >f the navy and ri venue
Another very signal advantage : > b

dales vessels of a draught of seven and
one half feet nt low water ebb, ace ud
i ir.g to a notice ptiblished in another
column, ami the canal will be fUrthei
improved and widened, and Is ex?
pected that a vast amount of freighi
, which hoiv goes by the outside rout,
w'll take this inside way. it is saal
that the-avoidance of th perils ot Cape
Hattcras will create a saving which will
greatly reduce rates of iiisuiam ?.

progress. It was only tliroii:;>i tii s us>
slis'tnncc of the national government
that tlvy achieved Ultimate sucih ?s.
Thanks to Hie government, in l>-'2 ihe
canal was finally opened to trafllc. Im?
mediately the Southern shlpii i i saw In
tiiis new thoroughfare of wal r the
cheapest, shortest and most eligible
route between tin- Strifes. When the
civil war broke out the Federal govern?
ment was equally eager to seize th
opportunities presented by an inland
waterway for conveying tin and fro the i
troop?, the munitions of war riitil their
stcre.*. and for supplying their army
and navy with \va*>r, Al the close -f
the war they surra i i trod it to the .? un

Sir The Navy Department has much
pleasure in transmitting herewith n

Mavy, formerly commanding the li. S. j

. successfully undertaking to convey
from Hong Koni; lo Mira Hay in a
::n.i!l steam launch a circulating pump
for that vessei during the progress ... n
gale which rendered such an attempt :

The depart inch t < on not hut feel es
pedal gratification that one of ils of
llcers should b? fully realise the Im
p ? ; lane ? of hi> mission as lo jeopardise
ii.s own safety in an effort to accom?
plish it. and cousldi rs that your con- '
duct under iit? - living circumstances
described by Captain Coghlnh Is worthy
of the highest commendation.

vite the attention ol the department
t.? ihc praiseworthy conduct of Pay
it ash r W. W. Gait. IT. s. N . of the
Itulelgh, while i.lio stpiadron was at
Mira Hay. April Just previous to
f illlng to aftai k Man.I
The Raleigh's port main circulating
I pump had been broken by the careless?
ness and InelHeleiiey Of one .if ihe en?
gineer's foice, completely disabling the
port engine and necessitating a delay of
en. day at Hong Kong lb go-t the pump
nshorc. fon .t.? the ship Id go to MlrS

from Mirs bay to Hong !< .ng i i gel
the punip: in- Ii :; in a small comprador
i ron h -and returned P> tile ship in an?
other small launch in the face of a
-'! ihg northeast gale, battening down,
deluging everything and nearly swamp?
ing Ihe launch: pi rsisting in coming ait
in spite of the protests of the men In
charge, thus enabling the Italclgh to
have the fase of hold her engine:; in the
liiQVemenls signlnst the enemy.
And this was done through n gale
that forced the tug Kinne, a vastly
larger vessel, wh it'll was bringing Olli
the t'. S. consul from Manila. I i put
back for shelter. The latter did not
reach Mirs Hay until next day.
This conduct of Paymaster Gait;
while it may hot come mid r "extra?
ordinary heroism," was of so high nu
order its to cti.ll forth my warm, st i om
mendntious at the time, and I thlilk It
w'orlhy of especial mention by the de?
