Goyernment Order Against ,01d
Whisky Barrels Explained.
IT HITS AKD HURTS THE WEST.
A Matter of 6.000 In Its Effect on West
ENOEMOUS EESrONSIBILITI FOE TAX
Commissioner of Internal Eevenne John
W. Mason has issued a circular "prohibit
ing the refilling at distilleries of casks or
packages previously used at the same dis
tillery," and he bases his decision on section
2Xo. 3219 of the Bevised Statutes, "To pre
scribe rules and regulations to secure a uni
form and correct system of inspection,
weighing, marking and gauging of spirits."
The Commissioner thinks that the practice
of reusing barrels results in great loss of
revenue to the Government, because the re
peated removal of the marks, stamps and
brands from the heads soon renders them so
thin that the calibers will not indicate the
true length, whilethe removal of bungs de
presses and flattens the bung staves so that
the rod will not indicate a true mean diam
eter. As whisky is manufactured in large quanti
ties in "Western Pennsylvania, and many
barrels are used. Chief Deputy H. J.
Mitchell, at the Internal Kerenue office,
asked for an approximate estimate of the
loss to the distilleries in this district the en
forcement of the new law would entail.
A VERY SMALL, MATTER.
"It won't be much," be replied, "for the
reason that probably not more than ten dis
tillers in this district reuse the barrels, and
they are the small manufacturers 'who sell
the whisky by the gallon. These men keep
on band from one to 300 barrels, and at the
farthest the number of barrels to be replaced
would not be more than 3,000 a year.
A new barrel costs about $2, so that
the pecuniary loss would not be more than
50,000 in the district. This money will
come out of the people, as they have to pay
for everything, anyhow. The distillers can
easily make up the extra expenditure in re
tailing the whisky. Old whisky barrels
make first-class receptacles for cider, and,
during the cider season, each barrel will
bring $1 50. The loss in the end, therefore,
is not much.
"All the heavy manufacturers in the
district never reuse the barrels. They
usually store their whisky in the bonded
i-arehouses for the three years allowed by
law. The average numbcrof years required
for refining whisky is two. The number of
packages kept by the makers in these store
rooms range from 1 to 40,000.
"Bv the wav, the report for June shows
that at that time there were 7.9S7.616 tax
able gallons on hand in the district, and the
tax amounts to t,lB3,S54 40, lor which the
collector is responsible. You fellows get an
idea sometimes that we don't do much down
here, and there is not much responsibility
connected with the business. These
figures show what we are doing.
This is a big lot of whisky, and
usually not more than 6,000,000 gallons
are kept in the warehouses. The reason is
that during the spring the manufacturers
were afraid that prohibition might pass, and
tbey worked the distilleries to their full
capacity. Under the law tftey would have
had three years in which to get rid of it at
good prices, if prohibition had carried. The
nnmbcr of callons made is increasing, and
I don't believe the supply on hand will fall
again much below the figures givem
"The new law will affect principally the
manufacturers of high wines and spirits
from corn in Indiana and Illinois. They
generally sell it for chemical purposes, in
met the liquid is almost pure alcohol.
They seldom store it for any great length of
time, and so reuse the barrels. But the law
will not aflect distillers to any great extent
in other States."
Mr. Frank, of the Revenue office, sug
gested that new barrels will absorb consid
erable whisky, and the Government will
FEOSl A PROMINENT DISTILLER.
Emanuel Wertheiraer, of Guckenbeimer
& Co., said: "The order issued from 'Wash
ington, which makes it compulsory on the
distillers to use new barrels, will not affect
Pennsylvania. It will, lion ever, affect the
high wine, or spirit distilleries in the "West,
for they have been in the habit of using the
barrels' several times. "We have used, and
X. believe every reputable distillery uses, new
barrels. The'difference would be so small
that it would be of no advantage to rebuy
the old barrels from the wholesaler. The
reason the order was issued was that the
liich wine or spirit distilleries have been
refilling casks and a proper gauge cannot be
ascertained. It might be a fractional gain
to the distillers to use old barrels, because
they could bur the old ones back
from the wholesalers, 25 to 50 cents cheaper.
The proper gauze cannot be made in old
packages; the constant hammering of bungs
into the packages tends to knock the cask
OUT OP SHAPE,
and it is possible, in a cask which contains
45 gallons, to measure 44 or 44 gallons
proper by the Government ganging rule.
We think it will have a tendency to reduce
the profits in the distilleries that" have been
tising old barrels, and also give a little
boom to the cooperage trade. In our trade
'it absolutely has no possible bearing."
Overholt & Co. stated that they would
rot use an old barrel under any considera
tion. They believed the Government's ac
tion mainly aimed at suppressing small dis
tilleries, that sold whisky in old barrel, to
save a little difference to the wholesaler.
C00LD K0T HANG HI1T.
After Being Sentenced lo Death a Murderer
Now Goes Free.
Sax Francisco, August 16. Dr. J.
Milton Bowers was convicted in this city in
1886 of poisoning'his wife in order to obtain
insurance on her life amounting to about
$17,000, and was sentenced to be hanged.
He took an appeal to the Supreme Court of
'the State, and on October 23, 1887,
before that tribunal had rendered a
decision, the dead body of Ilenry
Deuhayon, a brother of Bowers'
wife was lound in a room in this city. A
letter was found purporting to be the con
fession of Benhayon that he, and not Dr.
Bowers, was the cause of his sister's death.
Circumstances led to the suspicion that the
confession was forged and that Benhayon
was murdered, John A. Dimming being the'
latter's murderer, but he was acquitted. A
book agent was arrested on suspicion.
The Supreme Court afterward granted
Uowers a new trial. To-day, before Judse
"Wallace, the District Attorney moved for a
dismissal of the case on the ground that not
enough evidence ,could be secured to con
vict The Judge accordingly dismissed the
case, and Bowers was discharged Irom cus
tody, after having been imprisoned in the
County Jail for over three years.

The End of the Contest Proceedings In West
Virginia Drawing- Very Near Allca;aT
lions of Frond Not Sustained
It Was a Fair Election.
"Wheeling, August 16. The special
committee of the legislature -which has
been in session for four months past, exam
ining the depositions in the Gubernatorial
contest, will to-morrow complete reading the
evidence from all the counties except two,
Mercer and McDowell. The investigation
so far has developed one important fact
and that is that the election in this State, all
reports to the contrary notwithstanding, was
a singularly fair one. No genuine frauds
have been discovered, and of the several
hundred votes attacked as illegal, a very
small proportion, scarcely one-tenth, have
been thrown out, and 'these only upon
technical grounds Judge Fleming, the
Democratic contestant, did not allege in his
notice of contest, fraud or corruption, but
only attacked Goff's majority as being the
result of a large number of technically ille
gal votes, which he alleges were cast
The investigation has shown that in nearly
all cases these votes were cast by men who
thought they had the right to vote, and
that there was no intentional fraud. The
stories about the colonization of voters
have not been sustained, as the
committee has no evidence of such fraud,
and it is not known that any has" been
offered. General Goff s plurality, so far as
the investigation has gone, has not been
wiped out and with the two counties yet to
be read he still has the advantage of about
CO votes, his original pluralty having been
Scarcely an intentionally dishonest vote
upon either side has been discovered, and
the illegal ones will not average six to a
county. The result of the investigation and
the examination of several thousand deposi
tions shows that to all intents and pur
poses the voting was fair and honest
This has no reference whatever to the alle
gations of fraud on the part of returning
boards after the votes were cast, and which
only effected the election for Congressmen.
It is upon these allegations that the three
contestants for seats in Congress base their
claims. The legislative committee has
not gone into this matter.
DESERTED HIS DUNG WIFE,
And Stole S5.000 of tier Money to j?ny the
Expenses of Ills Elopement.
Louisville, Ky., August 16. James
Miller, for many years an engineer on the
Louisville and Nashville Railroad, has
eloped with Sallic "Whittingham, a pretfy
18-year-old girl. He deserted a sick wife,
who is almost out of her mind with grief.
The girl left a widowed mother, who is
greatly distressed, and two brothers, who
swear tber will kill Miller on sight
Miller has of late been running on the
new Louisville, St. Louis and Texas road,
and terminated his run every trip just op
posite the girl's home. Though married
five years ago to the well-to-do widow of a
saloon keeper, and having a 4-year-old child
to make his home happy, Miller began flirt
ing with the girl, and was soon on intimate
terms with her. He came in from a run
last Sunday, and all that day and the next
appeared nervous. He kitsed his wife,
whom the doctors pronounced seriously ill
on Monday afternoon, and told her he
thought she would be better by the time he
got back from his run, told hisbabygoodby,
and left ostensibly for the depot
He went to the bank and drew 55,000
which his wife had made over to him at
their marriage. At 6 o'clock that evening
he and Miss Whittingham started out for a
stroll together and have never returned.
The last seen of them they were boarding
the ferry for Jeffersonville, where it is sup
posed they were married and went "West
The first Mrs. Miller heard of the affair was
on Tuesday evening, when Charles and
Harry "Whittingham, the girl's brothers,
stood at her door with drawn pistols de
manding to see Miller, who they said had
abducted their sister.
MUST NOT EXCEED TnE LIMIT.
Fension Agents Must Discharge .Clerks to
Keep Within the Appropriation.
"Washington, August 16. Prior to the
beginning of the present fiscal year there
were many complaints from the various
pension agencies alleging that the allow
ances for clerk hire were inadequate and
that the force of clerks was in
sufficient to properly conduct the
business of "the agencies. Congress
appropriated only 178,000 for the
payment of clerks to pension agents during
the present fiscal year. Commissioner
Tanner, with a view to removing the cause
of complaints, authorized various pension
agents to increase their force of clerks, not
withstanding the fact that such increase
would swell the amount of expenditures
beyond that contemplated by Congress.
Secretary Noble, however, came to the
conclusion that it was not proper to create a
deficiency and issued a circular August 8
directing pension agents to reduce their
force to such an extent as would bring the
expenditures within the appropriation for
the current fiscal year. The various agents
throughout the country have accordingly
dismissed the clerks they employed under
Commissioner Tanner's directions and have
also in some cases laid off a few regular
clerks. The time for the October payment
of pensions is approaching, and it is feared
that the reduction in forco will cause some
delay in the payment of pensions.

Mary Lynch Captures a Chicken Thief In
Her Employer's Hennery.
Trumbull, Conn., August 16. Two
nights ago Mary Lynch, a pretty girl, who
lives in the family of Almond E. Plumb,
heard an nnusual noise in the back yard. It
was late and the farmer had retired for tho
night Mary turned down the lamp and
stole softly out of the back door. She
walked toward the chicken house, whence
came the noise, and found the door partly
open. There .wasufficient light for her to
sec a tall man inside, and he was so busy
taking down the plump hens from their
high perch and stowing them away in a
meal bag that he did not notice Mary's ap
croach. She did not scream, but after she
had put her arms around the thief and held
him in a grip like a vise she hollered lond
enough to be heard, a mile. Mr. Plumb
came to the rescue as soon as he could collect
himself and put his trousers on, and Mary
turned over her prisoner to the owner of the
hens. His grip was not like that of the
muscular Mary, however, and by a few
twists and turns the thief managed to es

It spread rapidly all over my body and got
