GREAT SEAL OF
THE'CDHFEDERftCy
A True Copy of it is in Staun
ton, Interesting Account ofj
Its Making and Its Present!
j Ownership
One of the historical mysteries of
the confederacy is touched upon by
the Confederate Veteran in the fol
lowing excerpt from its latest issne
The original seal of the confederacy
was adopted on Washington's Birth
day, Februaiy 22, 1862, the centre
of the seal being a copy of Washing
ton Statue in Richmond, V.i. When
the seal was first made, A. Tyler, a
well known jeweler of New Orleans,
got a copy ot it; and after lie had
made several copies, lie destroyed the
die. When Butler went to New Or
leans, Tyler had these copies of the
seal, knowing tnat he would have
to pay the penalty if they were found
in his possession. A great many years
after the war these were brought out
and distributed, one being given to
the Washington Artillery. Several
years ago the Junior Memorial As
sociation placed in Memorial Hall a
beautiful stained glass window,which
is a copy of the great seal. By
special permission Camp Beauregard
lights this window at every meeting.
The fate of the original seal of the
confederacy is not known.'
So far as we kno ', there is no
definite information as to the disposi
tion of this seal. It presumably was
entrusted to the care of the secretary
of state, who is usually the custodiau
of the great seal of the government.
Inas-nnch as the seal is guarded care
fully as the symbol of authority,much"
care is taken as a rule, to see to it
that in case of a change of capital tho
seal _■ carried along to the new seat
of government, and it is, therefore,
.reasonable to suppose that when Pres
ident Davis and his Cabinet mads
their exodus from Richmond, after
Appomattox, the seal went along in
the custody of Judan P. Benjamin,
then secretary of State.—Times-D.s'
patch.
The above appears editorially in the
Times-Dispatch of August 15.
On Tuesday Hon. Edward Echols
handed ns the following which is a
clipping from the Times Dispatch of
a previpus date which is not ascer
tainalfle.
To the Times-Dispatch
Referring to the republication in
your issue of September 1, 1907,0f the
paper of Judge Robert L. Rodgers,
of Atlanta, Ga., under caution of
"The Great Seal of the Confederacy,"
space is requested in your valued col
umns for scm3 facts in regard to the
same.
The Cheat Seal of the Confederate
States of America was engraved in
J8(54 by Joseph S. Wyon of London,
England, aui reached Richmond not
long before the evacuation of the city,
Apiil 3, 18S5, and was overlooked by
the confederate authorities It subse
quently fell into the nossession of the
late Col John T. Piekett.of Washing

Vsitrorype copies, in gold, stiver

Museum in this city,
s Southern Historical Sooiety,
aving been provided with a seal,
ign for one was offered by its
;arv, R A. Brock, which was
ed by the executive committee
; sooiety in meeting held October
The seal was first used by the so
ciety in Volume XVI of the Southera
Historical Society papers, 1888, in
which an account of the adoption of
aud description of each seal respective- j
iy appears, pages 416, etc.,
With this article are two cuts of
the seal, one is rednced size, the
other the regular size. Mr. Echols
\ has one of the "electrotype" in cop
per, which is an exact reproduction
of the original seal and was made by
Col. John T. Pickett of Washington
in 1874 and in addtiion he has the
following letter:

ing received from John T.
;t, Councellor-at-law of Wash
: City, in the United States of
ca obtained by the electrotype
s, we hereby certify that the
npression is a faithful repro
n of the identical seal engrav
-1864 by our predecessor, the late
i S. Wyon. Esq., for James M.
, Esq., who was at that time
idon, representing the interests
Confederate States of which
al referred to was designed as
. mbolical emblem of sovreign-
We may add that it has been the
unvaiiable practice of our house to
preserve proof impressions of all
important seal work executed by us;
and on a comparison of the im
pression now sent us with the
proof impression retained by us, we
have no hesitation in asserting that j
so perfect an impression could not
have been produced except fiom the
original seal. We have never made
any duplicates of the seal in question.
Witness our hands the date above
given.
J. S. and A. B. Wyon.
These papers and seal are the prop

W. Bnrke. Mr. Echols and Mr. But

B*at!er Burke finding the seal, the
clipping and the Wyon letter, turned

preservation and they are now in tbe
room of the president of the Nation

"Black Jack" By D. S. Showker
Craigsville, Va., Ang. 18.—A seri
ous fighting scrape took place here
this morning between W. P. Kirkpat
rick and D. S. Showker in which
Kirkpatrick was badly beaten and
maimed. Showker used a loaded club
known as a "black jack" with which
he rained merciless blows upon the
head of his fallen foe.
Showksr was promptly arrested and
tried this evening before Justice H. S
Shuey who after hearing the evidence
sent the prisoner on to the grand jury
bailing him in the sum of $500. The
prisoners brother J. S. Showker who

has placed his case in the hands of Mr.
Oharlea Curry of STAUNTON. |

QUIET ABOUT CAVE-IN
Remnants of Engine House Burned
Deep Well Goes Dry
THURSDAY
The cave-in grew almost perfectly
quiet today and practically stood still.
The water did not rise perceptibly
and conditions, so far as appearances,
went were practically the same as on
yeterday. There was, however, a good
deal of iutsrest going on around about
the chasm. The STAUNTON fire
engine house, which a number of hands
had been working on, tearing down
for several days,aud which was pretty
well dismantled being much in the
way of the proposed work of filling
the chasm, it was decided by the com
mittee in chargs, that the shortest and
quickest way to get rid of it was to
burn it, so that orders to that effect
were given the general manager and
in a little while, the dismantled es
tablishment was in flames and soon
burned to the ground. As previuosly
announced yesterday, a derrick was
installed and work will go on today
in the opening nearest the fire engine
house The Smith Fuel Company,
with the aid of the City Manager, got
their pump in order yesterday and
last rftght were pumping water rap
idly for a while when all of a sudden
the well gave out.
There was a meeting o£»the special
committees last night but there
was no definite action agreed on,
but they decided, however, to
make a more thorough investiga
tion before any steps are taken as to
their -ijjjil course in the matter. The
committee had no statement to give
out, owing to the fact that what they
did was tentative.
Mr. P_rtlow ,is working [steadily
along in his endeavors to save the
Wilson Houses. He'himself installed
a pumping apparatus to be worked by
a traction engine and has been busily
pumping water. t
The cave-in was more quiet yester
day than at any previons time. The
derrick erected was picking timbers
out of the break near the Fire Engine
House, and boring was progressing on
Lewis Street in accordance with pre
viously announced plans. Samuel
Lindsay, the colored well borer who
sunk the well for the Smith Fuel
Co 2i pany, had his apparatus rigged on
Lewis Street and was driving wells
there three feet apart and about 4 in
ches in ilia neter to connect With the
line of holes now being driven across
the valley above Bosserman's stables
from Central Avenue to Lewis Street.
Thi-i is done to test the foundations
of the Public Sshool building and to
ascertain for a certainty whether there
is any stream of water going under it.
The committee held a meeting on
Thursday night to discuss the situa
tion and ascertain the bast mode of
dealing with the proposition. The
mam question seems to be whether
the chasm or crevice can be arched
and if ko filled on top of the arch, or
whether it should be filled from the
bottom of it. There seems to be little
doubt that the water seeps down from
fuither up the stream than where the
breaks have occurred and that the re
cent heavy rains have accelerated the
washing out of the crevice, allowing
the earth to crumble. A dam across
the valley from a point between Au
gusta Street and Central Avenue to
Lewis street would hold the water
coming down and force it into the ar
tificial -chaujel, and thus prevent any
further washing. It is about agreed
that in the end it will come to that.
If this be so the thing to do now
would seem to be to fill the present
ahasm at once and stop the ; caving in
and loss of material, an idea strongly
advocated by Mr. Harry Frazier and
others.
There was some commotion yester
day about a depression in the post
office yard between that building and
the buildings of the Smith Fuel Com
pany. But we can say with confidence
that this is no recent oave in. In the
early days of the present trouble, the
Editor of this paper observed that de
pression and intended calling the at
tention of Mr. Heald, the government
representative, to it bnt it passed out
of mind owing to things of im
portance crowding in. Others had no
ticed this depression long ago. .Col.S.
Brown Allen, the postmaster, will,
hoivever, test the depression and he is
at this time having a hole sunk in the
center of it..As far as gone.the ground
seemed to get more and more firm.
With reference to the trees dying
in the school house yard and the ap
prehension felt by some as to the
cause, Mrs. John Hanger, who lives
next door to the grounds, states that
she saw them blown over in a storm
a few months back and that the jani
tor set the trees and boxing back up
straight. This rending and tearing
of the delicate roots has caused them
to die.
Mr. Partlow was working yesterday
on his contract and had his pump go
ing, but as yet there seems to be no
diminution of the water.
The special committee held an in
formal meeting last night at which
took placs] a well defined discussion
to avoid useless expenditure of money
until it is fonud just exactly what
conditions are.

ECAVEb PLENTIFUL
Synopsis of Natuie's Handiwork
in the Vicinity of Staunton I
during the recent cave-in in
STAUNTON and anent the numerous'
theories with reference to the cause !
thereof, some of which touch on the I
probability of well developed caverns J
under this portion of the city, atten- J
tion has been directed to the fact that'
this section and even the imme dia'
vicinity of STAUNTON itself, is in
the area pf numerous caves of varying
beauty and dimensions".
The first, closest and probably the
largest of these limestone formations,
is the perpendicular shaft sunk by
nature fom a spot not far above the
C. and O. depot on Sear's Hill, and
which tradition says terminates in
thb cellar of the Mary Baldwin Sem
inary. Whether this be true or not
is very doubtful, indeed it is mere myth
but we are told by persons who have
been down into this cave, that it ex
tends some distance in that direction;
that, after striking a level, it is
narrow with high vaulted ceilings
in places; that in it there is a small
body of water and that the rumbling
of street traffic above can be plainly
heard from certain of its subterranean !
passages.
The second cave in importance, we
would select as the one on Cedar
Hill, just east of STAUNTON, aurt!
from which the old Bodley Wap >a
Works obtained its water supply. This
cave descends at an angle of about 60j
degrees from its spacious entrance'
and the descent is made easier by
clinging to the the 3 inch iron pipe
through which the clear, sparkling
water is conveyed to places where
it is useful. At a depth of about
200 feet, in this cavern, the water
level is reachea. This effectively
prevents further exploration but it I
is believed that this piece of Nature's
handiwork is of considerable extent.
Then there is a crevice in the I
rocks, on the southern side of Fac-I
tory Hill, which may be termecT a]'
cave. It descends precipitously and is
sufficiently large at the mouth for
cattle to fall into. We are not in pos
session of any facts concerning its in
terior.
Betsy Bell, on the southern slope,
also has a cavern which descends to
a considerable depth and which has!
been explored at different times byj*
STAUNTON people.
The STAUNTON Caverns, up the
incline of Dogwood "Hill from the
junction of Jefferson street and Mia
dlebrook Avenne, are too well known j
to the people of this vicinity to war- JI
rant description. Under the efficient
management of Mr. Wm. Lamer these
enteresting and extensive caverns
have become one of the show places
of STAUNTON.
These various limestone formations
are all in immediate proximity
to Staunton and no doubt there are
others which have escaped our atten
tion, whilst making this compilation. I
Outside of this beit, there are many
farms with underground wonders, I
prominent among which are the two
caves in and near Stuart's Woods,
just west of Staunton, and the cave
on the property of Mr. M. F. Gilke
son on the old Lexington Road.
Weyer's Cave, or "Grottoes" as itis
now called is the nearest large cave to.
