The fly wheel which is eight feet in diameter, weighing seven thousand pounds, makes one hun dred revolutions a minute. Water In a res ervoir two hundred and e'gU y feet above the pump Is conveyed In pipes to the pump, the pressure of the Immense height of the water being the motor power.

Williams and three hundred others, was resumed and concluded Saturday morning In the I’nited States court at Macon before Judge Sneer. The Judge announced that he would re serve his decision until he could fully ex amine into ail the papers, but he clearly intimated that he would sustain the de murrer and dismiss the bill. The main point of the demurrer is a misjoinder of I parties. The bill seeks principally to per petually enjoin defendants irom boxing the trees, cutting the timber, or clearing i or cultivating any of the lands to which DodgC claims to hold title and from ox* : editing leases, or other conveyances to j other persons of any of the lands, or from interfering with the same in any manner, or with Dodge's rights. It further asks j that an accounting may be taken under I this bill as to the value of the turpentine ami timber products which have been tak en by any of the defendants from Dodge’s lands, and that Dodge may have a decree and judgments against the defendants for the value of the products as taken and ap propriated by any of the defendants.

Macon Telegraph: Charles Christopher H. Wiggers of Bullard's Station is filled with resentment for the way he has been treated bv the representatives of the New York Life and New York Mutual Insur ance companies. He has employed Messrs. Grace & Jones to bring rult against the companies for the collection of his $6,000 policies. The newspapers published Fri day morning the grounds upon which the insurance based their suspicions that Mr. | Wiggers had murdered young Alonzo Mad dox for $3,000 of insurance money. Mr. Wiggers Friday told the Telegraph his side of the story, which is quite different. Said he: “Alonzo Maddox was driven from his Griffin home by his parents. He came to me for work. I gave him a home, and we had no trouble in getting along with each other 1 moved from Boling broke to Bullard’s Station, and young Maddox went with me. He begin to look upon m as his best friend in life. On one occasion I came to Macon and took out an insurance policy. I went home and was talking about it before young Maddox, w ho became interested nnd said he would like to insure his life for the ben efit of his young relatives in Griffin—a brother, half sister and niece. The next run. i came to town, he came with m and 1 carried him around to the insurance office. When we returned home, he found that he had hardly enough means to keep up the premiums, and suggested that if I would carry the policy for him be would take out another for 13,000 in my name. This was agreed to, and about a month later wt* came and took out the second policy. Within a very short time young Maddox had a chill followed by a fever. Dr. O’Daniel of Bullard’s Station was call ed in to see him. The next day Alonzo had what the doctor pronounced a conges tive chill, from which he remained ill about a week and died.” FLORIDA.

C4*ws: Dear Sir—Now tltai the "factory fever" seems to have at lest Obtained a foothold In Savannah, and Mhat tinware is mentjoned as one of the new industries, dots It not seem rea sonable to supfos* that a cannery of fruit and vegetables would prove a suc cess? The cans could be made here, avoiding' transportation, and as Savan nah Is a great truck and fruit market, canned goods to my mind could be put up here much cheaper Wian at Baltimore or othes cities similarly situated, and 1 think if tae question is thoroughly con sidered lh.it you will reach the same con clusion. In this connection I desire to state that I feel very much enthused now that the subject has arisen, as it is our only hope of making Havannah a prosperous city. You will, however, beyond a doubt find it a very hard maiter to arouse an enter prising spirit among most of our ‘'nar row-minded” citizens, as they seem to have a propensity to do as "grandpa" did. and particularly among those who are wealthy and have the most at stake is this feel ing prevalent. It may be their fear of risking a dollar unless, two are seen coming In immediately, in whit., case, are they not Jeopardizing their entire means by this penurious spirit In mani festing a lack of enterprise to promote the city's welfare? Any observant per son would have noticed this feeling among most of our business men prior to last May week, a great many of whom flatly refused to contribute a small amount to aid tile few enterprising gentlemen who undertook its management, and the com plete failure can bo attributed to this cause and only goes to again show that when one man tries to make a success of an undertaking of this or any other kind in Savannah, there are a dozen or more “forties" that insist on running In the same "old rut" to push him down, ami then censure him If he fails. In returning to the original subject, say. our "slow'' merchants had energy enough to Induce a dozen factories of different kinds to locate here. Is there a man in Savannah with the same senti ments of myself that <>uld be led to be lieve our menchan-s and people at large would support them? I say, emphatically, no. They woulld much rather illustrate the "cracker," rvnd buy the same goods at higher prices' as far away from home as possible, in order to have the “honor” of paying the frjlght; rather than help along a deserving man that has had pluck enough to Halt his capital in a city with people so unworthy of notice in this par ticular. Now, T do nlnt desire to become per sonal, but In, ortder that this point should he fully understood. It is necessary to cite you one Instanto in a hundred, which is that of a broom factory, whose facilities enable them to supply the entire trade in this city, besides their foreign customers at satisfactory prices, yet we would rather buy a thousand miles from home than help along a local enterprise that Is com posed of ambitious young men. It seems to me this action is very "silly," and I don't believe a s itisfaetory explanation can be offered. The same can he said of the Pulaski Knitting Mills, and a score of others too nunnerous to mention. In conclusion. 1 will say that If the prop, erty owners and iryoi that are Hnanclally inter* sted 'in Hie city's we!Hard do not want their interests to depreciate in value, they must have the population, ami in or der that they be employed it is nec essary to have factories or similar en teiprlses, as our lumber, turpentine and rice industries are retrograding every year, and it is only a question of a few more years before we arc laid on the shelf to “rust,” as Charleston has been, not only from this cause, but by our sister cit ies. who are rapidly invading our terri tory with our eyes wide open. 1 trust this communloation will he re ceived in the same public spirited manner in which it is w ritten, and hope that some influential citizen more capable of point ing out our detlciencies will take up the subject.

Henry Saunders, has arrived here from Alb*rni, a lumber settlement on the west coast of Vancouver Island. He went there, to look up some gold quartz property. Mr. Saunders was In a hurry to get home, so he took a short cut over the mountains, which were covered with snow. About half way across he trod on a soft spot and began to ftink out of sight. While he was struggling to extricate himself a huge boulder broke loose from a cliff Just above him and rolled down the mountain. Everything else thereabouts began to slide just at that time, and Mr. Saunders soon discovered that he was in the track of an avalanche. It was a desperate chance, but he decided to go with the ava lanche. Before he really realized what had happened he was traveling down the moun tain at express train speed. He estimates that he covered four miles in less than fif teen minutes. . Finally, he found himself, half stunned, in the Albernl river. He swam ashore and waited for a stage from Nanaimo to come along. The passengers he met could scarcely believe his story, but his general appearance Indicated that he had been having a troublesome time. "It was a very close call," hi- said, "and an experience that I am not likely to forget. I had bare ly stepped on the soft snow when off It started, carrying me with tt. 1 hardly knew what whs happening until I found myself struggling in the icy waters of the river.” —Sardou's income from royalties on his plays In France and other countries is $150,000 a year.

(Continued from Seventh Page.) this year, compared with last year, is about the same. Cotton is somewhat later this year than last. The condition of the crop is good, and the weather Is line. Tennille, Washington County, Georgia. June I.—There are a few farmers who are experimenting with long , staple cotton, planting only a few acres. They will be watched with a great deal of Interest. The variety being used is knotvn as the low hush, which yields a satisfactory crop in less than a degree south of Tennille, and as the soil seems adapted to it in the southern part of Washington county, the opinion is entertained that it will pay here. Davlsboro, Washington County, Geor gia, June I.—For the first time about I‘iO acres has been planted In sea Island cot ton here, and It has also suffered, alike with the uplands, from cool weather, giv ing It an unhealthy appearance and pre venting it from attaining growth. Milltown, Berrien County, Georgia, Jute I.—Crops generally are looking fine. The cotton acreage is about the same as last year. Boston, Thomas County. Georgia, June 1. —The Increase In the acreage plante-l in sea island cotton is about 15 per cent, in this section. The plant is small, but the crop Is clean and growing. The stands are fairly good. Rochelle, Wilcox County. Georgia, June I.—The acreage of sea island cotton has been increased 25 per cent. The crop is two weeks late, on account of excessive rains. Starke, Bradford County, Florida, June I.—The season has been very backwarl this spring and cotton has made a slow growth In comparison to last spring. Probably two-thirds of a crop of sea island cotton has been planted, and the prospects are fairly good for a medium crop. Usually Bradford county produces from 1,5(10 to 1,800 bales, whereas this year, on account of low prices, less cot ton was planted, and less fertilizer be ing used, the crop will probably fall short one-third. Quincy, Gadsden County, Florida, June I.—From the best information available it has been estimated that the acreage planted in cotton in Gadsden county will be greater by 10 per cent. This will ap ply to both short and long staple. The late cool spell has retarded the growing plant somewhat, but the recent rains have done the plants good, also helped- grass, and this will cause quick work, in order to keep the Helds clean. Jasper, Hamilton County, Florida, June I.—The acreage is about 5 per cent, less' and the fertilizers used about 40 per cent’ loss than last year. The crop is three weeks behind. The spring has been cold and wet. The crop is grassy and dis eased. It is estimated that the crop at present Is 40 per cent, off compared with the same time last spring, but uie past week has been dry and hot. and the planters are rushing their work. In an other week, should it not rain again, the crops will be clean.

JONES OF NEVADA. Tlie Slate Press on tlie ex-Rrpub llenn Silver Aline Owner's Letters in Georgia. From the Valdosta Times. The Atlanta Constitution announces that It is going to print a series of letters from Senator John P. Jones favoring free coinage of silver. Who is John P. Jones? He is a repub lican senator from Nevada. He is the great "Silver King" of the northwest—so termed in his biography. If free coinage of silver comes, and if It doubles the price of silver, it is said that John P. Jones will be worth $300,090,000. The Constitution objects to sound money, among other reasons, because it happens that John Sherman, another republican senator, favors It. It has" - printed"sher: man's name several thousand times in its editorial columns with the purpose of frightening southern men away from the soulul money advocates. It has made the welkin ring with “Sherman. Cleveland * C 0.,” and such like utterances to create a prejudice In the minds of the unthink ing against sound money principles. John Sherman never owned a silver mine and has no personal interest in the silver craze. John P. Jones owns nothing ex cept what he bought with the product of his silver mines. He bought his seat In the Senate with it. And now the John Sherman hater takes John P. Jones to its bosom, to parade him before the pub lic in Georgia and the south, as against Carlisle and Cleveland. Let the people keep up‘ with the proces sion as it draws its length along. Mine Speculator and Mall Street Man. From the Eatonton Messenger Senator John P. Jones of Nevada, whom the Constitution Is recommending to dem ocrats as a political leader. Is a third par tyite, und In the description he gives of himself in the "congressional directory ” he says that "since 187 he has been entire ly engaged in developing the mineral (sil ver) resources of Nevada." This is a re freshing admission, but as Jones is a large stockholder In silver mines he Is merely using his office as senator to pro mote his private business. He Is a fami liar figure on Wall street, where we arc told all the "money sharks” ami “Shy locks" are to be found. Hilly Bryan, love ly Billy, who is sailing around like an old maid In the old good time of hoop skirts? "answering” the unanswerable, kicked' out of democratic traces some time ago He is a third partylte. Senator Stewart of Nevada Is at once a third partylte and a silver mine millionaire, and he makes his debtors promise to pay him in gold—an admission that unlimited and independent silver coinage at 16 to 1 would result in silver dollars only worth at) cents. Sibley of Pennsylvania, prospective presidential candidate of the silver extremists, is another silver mine millionaire. And so we might go on to the end. Is the party going to accept these, men as its leaders? Is it going to be dad off by them from the teaching of Jefferson, Jackson, Tilden and Manning as to mon ey? We reckon not. "liy- Discriminate Between Jones and John Sherman? From the LawrenceVllle News. The Atlanta Constitution has arranged with Senator Jones of Nevada for a se ries of articles In favor of the free and un limited coinage of silver, by this country alone, at a ratio of 1 to 1. Senator Jones is a republican, yet the Constitution in sists that a democrat can agree with him upon this question without defiling his democracy, while it is treason to the party to believe as John Sherman, another republican, does upon the same issue. This is a fair specimen of that paper’:-, logic in the discussion of public questions! But Jongs owns a silver mine, and Sher man does not. —The nearest approach to Job in modern times is a Mr. Wilks, of Hamford Hill, London. On being hauled up for non payment of a debt Mr. Wilks explained that he had a wife and eleven children to support; that he had recently lost a horse, and had been laid up with the quinsy and had not had a drink in two years. On this statement the magistrate released him. ° OCEAN STEAMSHIP CO —FOB- ' NEW YORK, BOSTON AND Phil*.
