Owner of Steamer r Mackinaw
- Refuses to Settle for $756;
: Puts Up BonrJ and. Leaves .
1. The refusal of George Flood of San
Francisco, owner of the steamer Mack
inaw, to sail today with a cargo of
wheat . for Australia, to pay to the
steam lighter Pioneer a bill amounting
to ?756 as" the cost and for the
delivery of 2l0 tons of water to the
Mackinaw, is to be threshed out in
the local courts. - v J V0
-This is according to a statement
given the Star-Bulletin by Mr. Flood
and Fred U Waldron touay. Mr. Flood
claims that the charge of 36 cents a
ton for water at the local wharf pipe
lilies, coupled with a charge of 3.60
a ton for delivery to a vessel in the
stream, is exorbitant ' : -
Mr. Flood said today that when
the bill for 9756 was presented to him
he refused to pay it whereupon the
Mackinaw was libeled. Mr. Flood says
he then put up a bond with a local
bonding concern as surety of ?1750
and that he is determined to fight the
matter to a finish. He has secured
the local law firm of Smith, Warren
& Sutton as his attorneys.
Water in San Francisco, secured at
the wharf pipe lines, costs 36 cents a
ton, or 1 cents a gallon,, according
to Mr. Flood. It costs $1.25 a ton for
delivery to a vessel In the stream.
Therefore, 210 tons would cost $252,
he claims. .i-- ;- . ,
v "If, as stated i by Mr. Flood, , such
exorbitant charges are true, .it can
only result in the driving away of ship
ping from this port" said Mr. Wal
dron. -This shipping is a most valua
ble asset and should be catered to."
