WAsniNUTOH, September 17. "The
moonshiners roust jro," was the em
phatic decaralion of Treasury De
fiattment olticinl today, in recounting
the eflor: of the Govimnmnt to sup
press the illicit distilling o( whinky.
The presont administration lias en
tered upon a vigorous policy of liunt
inR down tho hidden mounta'n ttills
and bringing to ju-txs those who are
defrauding the internal revenue by
avoiding tbe . tax on whisky. The
forthcoming report of the Com
mlesioncr of Internal Revenue wi.l
show that double the number of illicit
Stills have been destroyed during the
put year as compared with the pre
vious twelve months. The number
of gallon J of diet1 1 led whrnky upon
which tax was csllected in 188(1 was
1G93, 327 greater than in 1H85, and at
a le coet. There are eighty-live col
lectors o( internal revanue, 003 depu'y
collectors, besides agents, marshals
and deputy marshals, whose duty it is
to prevent tbe illicit dhtilliug of
whisky, but the moonshiners are
motly confined to a few States. The
grout whisky producing Watts of Ken
tucky, Illinois and Ohio are com
paratively free from mootshiners. In
1878, when the active
BAIDIMQ AGAINST JI0ONJHINIR1
commenced, there we.e 1024 stills
seized acd twentj-five ofliceraof the
government were killed or wounded,
hioce then the seizures and casualties
have decreased down to the com
mencement of the last fi?cl year.
One hundred and ninety-nine stills
were rolled in 1884 in Georgia North
Carolina and Tor. new o, the ecu tar of
the moonshine territory, the moun
tains where those three Hates meet
being the raughett oountiy in tbe
world. The moonshiners ae ai poor
as church mice and live at the foot of
the mountains and In the mount lin's
valleys. There valleys are fertile and
the farms productive, corn being the
principal crop. 'J here are no railroads
near, and the wagon roads ars rough,
olten only a half beaten track rhowlng
that a road is intended. These people
have no mra-s o t tking their produce
to the markets, thaiofore tbey make
the most of their crops whichever way
they can. The mrst abundant crop,
corn, they find the moet profitable one
when converted into whisky. Tbey
cannot afford to turn out the juice and
f ay the Internal ltovenne Collector
he tax cf H a gallon, to they sell It
without paying the tax, and only the
march of c vilixU'on ran efiettaally
stop it. Th y were always firm be
, ALEXANDRE. H. STEVENS,
who once said: "If a nun can take
bia cc rn to tbe mill and have it ground
Into a little meal without paying a
tax, he is clearly ent't'ed to turn it
into ali'tlo whUay without paying a
tax." Thh la tbe moonshiner's tontl
ment. Tbey hold tha. they have a
national tight to d it till without paying
a tax, and propose to do so; and, in
fact, carry out their view;. Many of
iuehi were loyai aurwg tue war. Be
fore the war thro was no whisky taxi
and why they should submit to such a
lax sines the war la beyond thei rra
aoning. Tbey atj tor rf wl pur
. p0gMluMiJta together, for those who
co not distill encourage those who do.
These denizens of tbe mountains are
the most dangerous c'ass of law break
ers. Those near their base havo not
the facilities for tBcape and resistance.
In making wa fjre upon the former
the work must bo quick, decisive and
accurate and the retreat rapid. The
blow bas to be struck and the retreat
ing party baa to retreat with epood. If
the olHcers do not get away rapidly
they are picked off ly the
' MOUNTAIN BRAiirjUOOTKRS
as they retreat, lathe attack ujion
any number of moonihiners gathered
together there roust bo a surprise. It
Is a rushing and exciting warfare. The
government officers llutl the greatest
dilliculty taking out prl jonera captured
as an attempted uncus follows neatly
every capture. Ia the mountains the
favorite location fr crooked whisk; is
near a sheet of wa'er only acceesible
' by it. The still ia p'nctd nndor clitls
that cannot be dutemlud from above
or approached from tbe sides; only np
p rose liable over the water. The
etrcngth of such a position is evident.
Other loss favombW locations are
nooks in tbe rocks and uudor em
bankmf nU inthedeepl:ruri. Further
down the mountain the unfrequented
wood near a stream is the inv'HodspDt.
The stills vary in capacity from a
gallon up. The principal a.ly of the
distiller is the miller. The corn must
be ground into meal before distilla
tion, tbe miliar knows where his
money for grinding meal omes from
and governs himself accordingly, lie
will always give warning of a raid
whenever it cornea to his knowledge
and will do everything in his power to
throw the officers off the scent. The
revenue c dicers are surrounded with
danger. They cjnnot tell when they
are to be attacked fr by wh"m. A
ro venue raid In tba
or North Carolina will not pale by the'
scenes in the famous Hob Hoy The
only definite inlormat'on that is to be
obtained is from the womon among
the moonshiners. They are, as a rule,
opposed to moonshining because of its
dangers and effects upon the morals ot
tbe male popu'ation. They will sitne
time write to the government officers
giving detinite II formation ottbe loca
tion of stills run by their brother,
fathers and lovers. The officers always
rely upon this information, not. even
suspecting it of being a decoy, many
of which they leceivs. When they
proceed to a place indicated by a
woman they invariably find a etill.
There is one strange feature abont the
revenue raiding. Whenever a section
is raided illicit distilling breaks out
afresh, tbe distillers who have not been
captured thinking that tbey are at
least safe for a time.
A deputy internal revenue collec
tor, who is here on a leavi of sb'ence,
said yesterday that the poverty of the
people he was after was absolutely
paiDluI. un one occauon, ne earn,
r a. out with a comnanv nf six. alter
ilia. We found out where there was
ne and secured a guide. We mounted
our bones and a ruth I Jllowed over
bills, tbronzh wattr, wooJs and brush
lor a x muei as isbi hi our buuiihb
would travel until, finally, a log cabin
swai reached, near a little stream, ln
b de of the cabin we found an o'.d
AS NAKED AS IVg.
The woman evidritlr had no clothes,
and further povt-riv was evidenced
in tbe S'-antr furni ure. The room
contained oniy a rnde concb, a fiyine
pan and a drinking cup. One of our
fiariy poked his n''HP around a sharp
z)',ok and discovered tbe still in full
blatt We rushed in and captured the
man at work before he could prtb a
long gun at his tide, lis was very
scantily clothed." , ,
Our guide nea'ly come to grief.
Oar guide in this instance was very
careful not to be seen by the old man
or the old woman. He owned s firm
and was in comfortable circumstance?.
Two montl s after the ra d his house
andbirn were mysteriously burued,
his wile and children escaping with
their only clothing Nobody knew
pooitively tho incendiarlfs, but as this
was the revenge meted out ti ell
guides it was esy to furniisi. On
one occasion an innocent blind shoe
maker came near being burned out.
On an exploring expedition one day
we drew rein at a little house back in
the woods after a hard gallop. A blind
shoemaker was at wck. liairgaeked
if be could see a g'ais of whisky, he
replied that he could direc; ns where
we conld got a drink of
TBK PUBR ABTICI.S,
and gave minute direction'. Aftor a
difficult march we came upon the still,
and, after a successful skirmish witi
the five men at work, made the seiz
ure. We did not take a r soner. The
men got out of the way and vanished
went apparently nowhere. A few
weeks later, on passing through the
same section, 1 found quite a tumult.
The people had been unable to fix
upon the person who gave the thing
away, but entertained such strong sus
picion against tho thoomaker that it
was intended to burn him cut I told
the leader bow the poor shoemaker
hadinrocently given me the informa
tion, and be was satlefled.
"The women are, ai a rule, against
moooehinlng, but some of tbe older
ones are strong supporters of tbe
practice and verv vicious, handling a
gun w.th dangerous facility. A good
many deputy nmrrras nave oeen
killed in the moonshine raids during
the last ton vears. hut the casualties
are few compared witii the number of
raids made and the (tills destroyed.
Kietg little skirmish with moonshin
ers attracts attention when somebody
receivei injury, but the hundreds ot
blood esi ra (Is are cot ch'onicled. It
Is believed that rot very much good is
done by, thee i raids, but it produces a
wholesome eflact. It is probable that
the mountains wilt never be cleared c f
them by raiding, laid a well kcown
marshal. Once I was on
A BUCCBH'FUL RAID
of two weeks with a party of ten near
the foot of the mountains. Returning
in a week to procure soma additional
evidence against the prisoners we had
captured, a man took me to the top of
a hill to abow me tbe results of a two
week's campaign, Looking around the
woods and hillsides we counted no
1,6 than sixty columns of peculiar
looking smoke ascending. The smoke
came from the crooked stills. 1 ia
very difficult to procure evidence
against tbe moonshiner nnles they,
are caught in the very act of distilling.
It would bote much as a neighbor's
life is worth to testify against a moon
shiner. It ia surprising ho qu'ckly
the news of a raid will travel among
those people who are bonded toijotber.
When the lalds Commenced six year
ago. which thntongbly cleared Georgia
of Illicit dUt'lleries, the people be
came alarmed all over the State. Tbe
revenue officers were armed acd in
force, and the then' Governor, Col
quitt, became to Impr.ssed with
the fear of trouble, that he tele
cranhed the Tresidant asking tbat tbe
raid bs abandoned, iDiJeed it was ai
modified that Georgia mosu'hlners
have not been to viarorouily .Moi?"
cuted ai those in Tennessee and North
OaevUaaw The olasi Of people who ejA
being hunted are b.ave, crafty, unedu
cated and almost barbaric. They
carry on illicit dlttllling btciuse they
believe tbat they have a right to do
so. They will brook no interference
and will fight as a means of preven
t on, and every nee of them is a dead
shot with the lillo. An officer on bis
first raid foela very peculiar. A raid
ing party strings out five or six miles
along the road, and their horses are
put to their mettle before the ren
ilt avotts ia readied. Tbo revenue olll
cers hope that moouablne whisky,
which is a poor article anyway, will be
very scarci in a few years."

young sia'er left off work at 6 o'clock
p.m.. but sbo only earned 1 franc 50
cootimts. Nealy all the girls volun
teied ia almost tta sime words, tbe
emphatic sta emen1 : "Girls ought not
to be allowed to wcrk in the pits;"
aid they were unanimous in their
compltiut of the tamp ations put in
their way by the ovorsaera.
The president seked each of them:
"Whet nourishment do you tavaV
Do you often tike msat?"
One girl rrliel: "Thres n ontbs
ago w e hsil some meat on our table ; I
have never tas'ed any since." An
other aaid : "I take a bottle of water
with the fruit every morning; lean
not afford coffee."
The t resident ekrd an o'd work
man who had spent his life in the pits
why no effort had been nia 'e by them
to biing .their cmditinn before the
notice of tbe pub ic. ' 1 would gladly
have given evidence," said he, but I
knew I should be diemiseed if I told
any etory about tho storks. My com

When he was youngersnd ft onverhe

The president asked if the worker!
found regular wages or piecework the
"Tbe day wage is miserable," said
the old man, "but piecework r.o bet

means in their power to ruin the girls.
If nctbing cite succeeds, they will put
a timid young girl to work in a solitary
place nutil she is terrifled."
When ahe was asked what wages
