MACBETH & CO Pittsburgh, Pa. tiVERTISERS^:;: ™ LORD& THOMAS A PLEA FOR FREE WHISKY SENATOR BROWN APPEALS FOR UNTAXED SMOKES AND DRINK& They May Bti inlnricc, but (he People Will HHVO Thrm —Veil Tralnii Hit Omul on the Hi) neat I on Hi Bill—An Advents R«port on' Lnuinr—Proceeding* In Con- gmt— Trick* In Traniipnrtatlnn. WASHINGTON CITT, Jan. 10 —Sonator Brown of Georgia mode bis speech In favor of free whisky nnd tobncco Mouday, calling up hi» resolution declnrlng that the taxes on these proJucte should be repealed. Brown •aid all our Internal revenue lawa had been pasB«l when the emergency of war made large government revenue* necessary, and all but tho Inst had been repealed whim the emergency had passed. This last was the measure enacted in IHfll, which wa* still In force twenty-three years after the conclusion of the war which called It Into existence. The discrimination, he said, against to- bocco and whisky mada by Ihe internal revenue system constitutes a strong objection to It, The whisky tax occupies • peculiar position— the tax payer* do not desire to have the tax abolished. Tbe whisky dUtlllen gtt an enormous profit out of it, which they do not wish to be deprived of, and they enjoy a monopoly as a great association of protected capitalist) which they do not wish to give up. There Is no monopoly on the American continent comparable to that of the great whisky ring. It Is protected by a tarlfl of $2 a gallon on all Imported whisky from ether countries, no that at the custom bouse tho whisky msn are the best protected of American citizens from foreign competition. It may be thought that the whisky ring has no monopoly iHicaure every American citizen cm engage in the same business. This is a mistake. Before the passage of this law there were large numbers of small distillers over the country whodld not average flvegal- lons a day. In tho mountain regions of Georgia a small farmer Beventy-nve miles from the railroad, making 100 bushels of corn for sale, ran not haul It across the mountains to market, as rnrtege Is worth half tba corn, but could distil it Into whisky and transport It to the railroad with proflt, and get mouey to buy necessaries. These small distillers made a threat aggregate of whisky. The whisky monopolists had to_ b« protected mcfllnst.— those', imajl. home distillers, go that a regulation was passed forbidding any one to be liceused unless he could distil twenty gallons of whisky every three days. If they make whisky without a license they hare to go to jnll, and they can not get a license to make whisky In leas amount than twenty gallons every three days. Thus protected against foreign whisky in tbe custom house by $2 a gallon duty, and from the home distiller by a restricted llcensa, tbe whisky monopolist has an easy time. And against the little distiller, he baa tho whole power of: tho courts, including spins, col lectors, marshals, district attorneys, and tbe Albany penitentiary. It Is said the Internal repeal will turn whisky and tobacco loose without taxation; that neither are necessities, but both lux- urle', and thnt It Is better to [ower the tariff Mid give tba poor free trace-chains and free wool hats—which are cheaper than tbe; ever were before—than to give them free tobacco and f r jo whi»ky. Tobacco has become a necessity, and even if a luxury, the poor will have it; nnd the money for tobacco is taken from tho family support. Every'dol- lar of tax, therefore, on tobacco that is taken off gives a poor man so much more to support bis family, and will probably be B greater relief than any other act of legislation could furnish which does not reduce the tax to a greater amount. The (ame rule applies substantially to whisky. It may be denied that it Is necessary, and yet few families do not use it, and they will continue to use It at any price. When we put 90 cents tax on what cost 20 cent* a gallon, we put a tax of 300 per cent, on what the laboring man will have. And a relief Inthis matter will help the poor. It is asiertod that the repeal of the tnx will turn everybody loose to make whisky, bring the price down, and cause more 'drinking. This tbe senator held to be a mistake. Tbe production in 1887, added to tbe stock In bond at the beginning of the .year, gives nearly 'two and a quarter gallons to each man, woman, und child In the country. No other system will keep so much when tbe owner has to protect his goods at hi* own expense. Bald the senator In concluding: "Let as, therefore return to tha practice of tba great men who formed this government, and of the great men who administered .it for many rears, who, as soon as tbe emergency had passed which called forth the enactment of such laws, swept them from the statute book; ! and let us without delay get rid of Internal uxation by the federal government—all ta espionages, Its trivial prosecutions. Its op- ireaalonn, it* outrages, and its wrongs. The ••turn to the old fauiiUar practice of the father*, of the better day* of the republic, will at ouce relieve us of the Bur pi u? In the treasury, and relieve congress and the administration of all further embarrasBmaatoa that question." MONEY MAKES THE BILL GO. Test Opposes tho Educational Bill and Ha* F»llh In tba White House. WASHINGTON CITT, Jan. 10.—Vest's speech against tho educational bill in the senate itonclay was a decidedly rigorous one, al- bougU its tone seemed to indicate that the senator thought it would pass. He said that a vote by a Democrat for it waa a surrender of the party's landmarks, and a repudiation of the teachings of Jefferson and Calhoun, and asked what would be the surprise of tha latter if he could hear strict constructlonista and states' rights Democrats "yelling for tha old flag and an appropriation." If it were not for the money temptation in the bill it would stand no more chance of tbe votes of democratic senators than a donation for tha lev!) would stand in a Christian congregation. He was not attacking education, but was attacking tha monstrous, fanntical enthusiasm which present* this bill as a pan- aoaa for all the evils which affect the body politic. 'If this bill," said Vest in concluding, "be- wcomea a law, It will be by southern votes n this senate and in tba other bouse of con- sresa, But them 1« one place of refuge still eft in the constitution—the brave and honest man wbo is now president of this republic. Unless be is falsa to tha principles of his products. Brown of GMrgla then ipok» at lenarth in favor of frte whisky and tobnooo, and Vest delivered a IpocAn agtrlnst the educational bill, declaring U against tbe principles o( the D'mocracy, os It wai In violation of the constitution. A bill appropriating 11,000,001) for a public building at Milwaukee was pissed, the senate held an executive session, and then adjourned. In the hoow Bal;er of Illinois resigned his position on the claims committee, which was accepted. A till to provide each membo with a clork at JluO p«r month was sent to the committee on Recounts. Bills were hi trodiieed: Authorising the purchaso and reg istry as American vessels of foreign bull ships; for free coinage of silver; for a specie committee to Investigate labor strikes (Law ler); for a constitutional amendment prohibiting polygamy (Bpringer); requiring the attorney general to report if he had taken any mearures to compel the Paclfli railways to comply with the laws passed for their regulation, and If not why (Anderson of lowo); to buy bonds with the surplus; to repeal tbe civil service law (Taul bee of Kentucky); to create a board of public bolldlngs, to revise the pension laws, and to create a board of civil appointments (Cutcheon); to repeal the sugar duty am providing for a sugar bounty of $2,000,000 per year for two years, and for a public building at Jaoknon, Mirh. (O'Donnell); to take the tax off salt Without concluding tho call of states tho bouse adjourned. Anderson Wants Information. WASHINGTON CITV, JAn. 10.—Representative Anderson, of Iowa, Is after Pacific railways Information, and with that end In view he Introduced Monday a preamble and resolution reciting that the Pacific railroad com panics have persistently refused to comply with the various acts of congress, passed for their regulation, and that the act of It provided that if the companies failed to perform all the requirements of that and previous acts the attorney general should take steps for a forfeiture of all grants, prlvllego*, and franchises derived by them from thi United States; and directing the attorney general to report to the house what steps have been taken by him to secure a judicla enforcement of tha forfeiture, and If none have been taken, his reason for not proceeding as directed by law.

JO.— The Grand Army men employ od in the general and office called upon Secrotary Lamar Monday, and through thi-ir spoke8inan r -A.- F; Dlnsmore, said that they had coma to say good-bye, and in doing so they wished to express their appreciation of tbe kindness and consideration which he had always shown toward the members of tbe Grand Army. Tbe secretary thanked them in a pleasant speech. When this delegation withdrew the assistant attorney general, Mr. Montgomery, came In at the head of tha law clerks, and there were more speeches and hand-shaking. During the afternoon nearly all the employes in the department called on the secretary and took leave of him. Those Lincoln, Neb., Officials. WASHINGTON: Crrr, Jan. 10.—Some time ago the United States circuit court of Nebraska directed the United States marshal of that district to arrost the mayor of and city council tbe city of Lincoln for contempt In refusing to obey Its order. The mayor and council appealed to the United States supreme court, and that tribunal has ordered their release, deciding that the United- States circuit court, sitting as a court of equity, has no Jurisdiction over criminal cases or cases involving the appointment or removal of state or municipal officers. „ Against Lnmar's Confirmation* WASHINGTON CITT, Jan. 10.—A test vote 1 was taken by the senate committee OQ judiciary Monday, which demonstrated that two reports will be made on the nomination of Lamar, and tbo majority will be against confirmation. The lines were tightly drawn by the two parties, but final action was deferred. There Were no report* made In secret session of the senate affecting either of the three prominent nominations which are pending, vie: those of Lamar, Vllas and Dickinson. .. Evading th» Inter-State Law. WASHINGTON CITT, Jan. .10.—Charges are openly made by grain receivers that tbe inter-state commerce law Is being dally violated through a system -of under-billing freight which is widely practiced in the weet. A shipper and receiver agree to send, say 80,000 pounds of freight over, tb* road and bill It at 25,000 pounds; the saving in freight charges Is divided equally between tbe receiver and the shipper. Western roads an charged with conniving at tbe fraud. Want* More Pension Clerk*. WABHINOTOB; Crrr, Jan. 10, — An appropriation has been requested by the commissioner of pensions for fifty additional clerks to be employed until the expiration of tbe present session of congress. The reason given for this request is because of the extra amount of work imposed upon tba clerks by requests of members of congress concerning pension claims. Jo McDonald's Impressions. INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. !(?.—Ex-Senator Joseph E. McDonald has just returned from Washington. He was asked if ha thought a tariff-reduction bill would ba passed at this session of congress, to which be replied that he thought * compromise measure would go through with a hard struggle; that it would give free to- aacoo, and add some of tbe most necessary articles to the free list, but whisky would not be relieved.

Tb» And Then Get the Courts to Forfeit the Wnola Debt Under the Law—A Bad State of Affair. West and Sooth— Slightly "Irregular," bnt No Barm Don* —Bnnlnvss Trouble*. ° Niw YORK, Jan. 10.—An Atlanta special says: Considerable interest has been aroused by some stalisUcs which have been collected showing that southern and western lands are fast passing into the hands of foreign and eastern money-lenders. In Georgia these companies have placed many millions of dollars, holding mortgages on tho finest farm lands (n the state. The Interest paid by the farmer amounts to 12 per cent Capital of this kind Is still being poured into the south, notwithstanding the fact that Judge Spear, of the UuiUxi States court, has decided such Interest usurious and the loans accordingly forfeited. The syndicates are principally formed of English and Scotch capitalists, and they have such a hold in the south that they hope tore- verse Judge 8[«or's decision. The borrowers have allowed tholr Interest payments to lapse, hoping that Judge Spoor's decision will be sustained, and that they will not be forced to pay either principal or interest If Judge Spoor's decision is not sustained a great many Georgia firms will go Into the hands of the mortgagees, aa the farmers can not possibly pay the interest which has lapsed upon them. In the southwost there is, perhaps, not less than I'^OO.OOO.OOO Invested in this way. In Kansas alone over $20,000,000 has been placed, while the money, syndicates have their local agents In every county seeking farmers in need of loans and placing mortgages on their land. Each year adds many millions to the capital placed In this section, for which mortgages, which are not likely to be raised, are given to foreign capitalists. AN "EXCESS OF ZEAL" Which Was So JBxceMlve a* to Make m Bank President Sick. . Niw YORK, Jan. 10.—The Commercial Advertiser says: "Certain rumors have been circulated recently with respect to the affairs of the Fourth National bank. We have investigated them, and here present a an accurate statement of tho fact*. During a recent official examination It was discovered that the reserve of the bank bad boon reduced by excessive loans below the point required by law. This practice Is not Infrequent In sound tanks, and U often justified by necessity. But the law requires that accurate reports of loans and reserves be made. Unfortunately in some instances this has not been dona by tha responsible officer of the Fourth National No money was lost by th», bank, and no Injury was done to any person or interest, we are resured and believe, and there was no fraudulent intent, but simply excess of teal on the part of tbe official concerned, who, however, made himself a party to a technical violation of law. When the matter waa discovered Mr. O. D. Baldwin, president of tha bank, himself assumed sola responsibility for what had been done, and tendnred bis resignation. The resignation was not acted upon, as tbe annual election was near at hand. But Mr. Baldwin, wbo was greatly prostrated by the affair, was relieved from' duty, and went away for rest and recovery. Be Indorsed Too Largely. NEW YORK, Jan. 10.—William H.- Deforest, silk importer, 400 Brooms street, and a very extensive real estate operator, made an assignment Monday to George R.

RIADMO, Pa., Jan. 10.—Chairman John L, Lee and William L. Lewis, master workman at the National Miners' assembly, hdld a conference with promlnnnt Knlghta of Lv bor Sunday night In relation to the strike. The session lasted until nearly midnight Chairman Lee said Moodiy before leaving toe city: "I feel that we have this strike in our hands. All of the Ruadlng Railroad company's collieries are practically idle. They tre making the •how of running several of their mines with a handful of men, but they are neitber telling nor shipping « ton of coal. Beginning with to-day not an IndivHnal mine will bo in operation. The minors of tho Wyoming region have not been calle 1 upon to strike, but they have promised financial support If it Is necessary to call them out to win the strike they will respond to a man, but no •uch order has yet been issued. If it Is absolutely necessary for the Reading miners to win, every miner in Pennsylvania will be called upon to strike, and our assurances art that they will all come out if called upon." Mr. Leo added that he had been assured that the knights In this city were heartily with the order at large in demanding the reinstatement of all men discharged after the strike had been declared oil, and that If they did move they would move as one man. In this connection, however, it may be stated on tho other hand, that the Reading knlghte, numbering 2,000, have reiterated time and again that they would not strike, and this is the situation now. A telegram from Philadelphia says that the only announcement that General Manager McLeod had to make was: "There is no change in the situation, except that the company has five collieries in operation, and no trouble has occurred nor is any anticipated." . A Common Thing Since the Strike. POTTSVILLI, Pa., Jan. 10.—The Lehlgh Valley and Pennsylvania railroads jointly use the line between bora and Sbenandoah Crossing, a deep ravine, and the Reading road at New Castle, four miles distant on a trostle, 135 feet above tha ground. Saturday night a Pennsylvania freight engine preceding tho last Lehlgh passenger train struck a large rock placed between the guard and rapln rails, and came near toppling over into the ravine. On the return trip of the Lohlgh passenger train two large rocks were fouud similarly placed. It Is quite common to find Reading switches blocked and turned wrong thereabouts slnoe the strike. IOWA STATESMEN MEET. The Republicans Canooa for Officers—Senator Wilson's Prospects.
