INTERESTS IN NICARAGUA.
Hamptonians Who Have a Claim to
Extensive Properties.
M. ssrs. George and Marshall Booker,
of Hampton, have just returned from
Philadelphia, where the attended a
meeting of the Central American Com?
pany, which was organized October 1?,
is.".",. The company was organized on
a basis of 22..r.00,000 acres of land and a
capital of $5,62?,000. The Messrs. Book?
er, whose father, George Booker, was
one of tin- directors of the company
formed ?);> years ago. brought with them
from Philadelphia an old prospectus
printed in IS.",.",, which gives an" interest?
ing history of the company, its rights
and properties and how acquired. The
revival of the old company is due to the
agitation of the Nicarauga canal pro?
ject, which, it is said, is proposed to be
bttiit upon the lands owned by this old
company, or certainly near them. The
22.fi00.00l) acres owned by the company
constitute a large pan of the Mosquito
territory or Mosquito kingdom, which
c ommences at Cape Honduras, the ex?
treme northwestern part of the territory
and runs thence easterly by the sea
least io Cape Gratias, thence southerly
by said coast to King Buppan Rock, ad?
joining New Grenada, then southwest
wardly to the rang,- of mountains divid?
ing the two oceans, thence northwardly
and thence north to Cape Honduras,
containing about 71.000 square miles.
Tl'.e history of the acquisition of the
territory described is interestingly traced
from a grant made by the King of Mos?
quito to Peter and Samuel Shepherd,
citizens of the United States, in Janu?
ary, 1839, and confirmed in November of
the same year. Deeds of conveyance
were executed by the king to the Shep?
herds, conveying the lands free from
taxation forever. The lands were con?
veyed by the granters to the Central
American Company. The prospectus
describes in glowing terms-, the rivets,
forests, mineral resources, climate, pro?
ducts, etc.
The $i!.6fi0,000 constituting the capital
of the company is divided into 22S.000
shares of the value- of $2.1 each, each
share of stock representing one hundred
acres of land. The company was under
the direction of a board of directors of
twenty-one persons. Hon. Joseph Coop?
er, United States Senator from Penn?
sylvania, was president. Two of the
directors were Virginian^ viz.: David
P. Keeling. Norfolk. Va., and George
Booker. Hampton, Va. The revival of
the old company Is for the purpose of
protecting its claims to the property, the
value of which is increased by the pro?
position to build the Nicaragua canal.
MORMON MISSIONARIES.
Latter Day Saints Will Hold Evangel?
istic Services Tonight.
Two clean-shaven gentlemen in cler?
ical garb, who have been on the streets
for several davs are Mormon elders, or.
as they prefer to be called, evangelists
of the" Church of Latter Day Saints.
They are Messrs., or Revs. Samuel 1-;.
Taylor and D. H. Saunders. They have
been distributing tracts containing an
exposition of their faith and doctrines,
and will conduct evangelistic- services
at 7:30 o'clock this evening at the
county courthouse.
Messrs. Taylor and Saunders travel
without money or scrip, in an apostol?
ic fashion, depending upon the hospi?
tality of those whom tin y meet to ena?
ble them to solve the problem as to
what they shall eat and wherewithal
they shall be; clothed. Judging from
appearances, they have fared exceed?
ingly well. They repudiate the doc?
trine of polygamy, so generally charg?
ed against them, and are preaching to
make converts to their faith.
