Washington, D. C. Oct. 25. Thccoui
mteioncr of iuternal levenuc has so modi
tJH the regulations in regard to ' the oleo
margarine law 03 to make them conform to
the opinion of the attorney general. The
components of oleomargaiine arc subject
to ta' only when made iu imitation or re
semblance of butler.
The president appointed the following

sitiu:mi: court decision.
The supreme court rendered its decision
todav in the case of the Wabash, St. Louis
& Pacific Bailroad Co., plaintiffs in error
agaiiist the ueople of the .state of Jimiois.
The specific" alkgation'was that the railroad
company charged Elder JIcKinncy fifteen
cents per hundred pounds for transporting
goods from Peoria to New York city, and
on the same day charged Isaac Bailey and
P. O. Swanee 'twenty-live cents per hun
dred pounds for same class of goods from
Gilman, 111., to New York, Gilman being
eighty-six miles nearer than Peoria is to
New York. The discrimination, it
was claimed, wa-3 in violation of
the law of the state of Illinois, which
prohibits any charge for the transpoitatiou
of passengers or freight within the state of
Illinois proportionately greater than would
he chaiged "for the ti asportation of pas
sengers or like classes of freight over a
greater distance of the same road. The
gist of the decision is contained in the con
clusion, as follows:
"When it is attempted to apply to trans
portation through an entire terios of states
a principle of this kind, each one of the
states or half a dozen stales shall attempt
to establish 'its own rales of trans
pollution, its own methods to
prevent discrimination in rules
the deleterious iniluencc upon the freedom
of commerce among the Mates and upon
the transportation of goods through those
states cannot be over estimated. That this
species of regulations is one which must be,
it established at all, of a general and na
tional character and cannot be safely and
wisely remitted to local rules and local reg
ulations we think is clear from what has
already been said, and if it be a regulation
of commerce, as we think wc have demon
strated it is, and jc the Illinois court con
cedes it to be, it must be of that national
character, and the regulation can only ap
propriately be by general rules and princi
ples which demand that it, should be done
by the congress of the United States, under
the commerce clause of the constitution.
The judgement of the supieme court of
Illinois, which is adverse lo the railroad, is
reversed and the case is remanded to that
court for further proceeding-, in couformity
lo the above opinion by Justice 3Iillef.
Justice Bradlcj delivered a dissenting opin
ion in which the Chief Justice and Justice
Gray concmred. In this opinion it is con
ceeded 'that congress might if it :iw lit
regulate the matter under consideration,
but not haiing done so it is held that the
state docs not lose Us power to regulate the
charges of its own railroads in its own ter
ritory, simply because the goods or persons
transported have been brought from or arc
destined to a point beyond the state bor
ders. APPEAL lUeMTSPEP.

New Yop.k, Oct. 55. A Washington
special to the World says: Although prom
inent officials in the nav department made
light of lecent disclosures of smuggling by
naval officers the lank and fde in the ser
vice know that the apologies by oHicera of
high rank were made merely to prevent un
pleasant disclosures. An ex-corporal of
the marine corp3, now in business in this
city, gave a reporter the following chapter
onsmuggling in the navy as it came under
his owii observation: In 1SS0 I served on
board the United States ship Saratoga,
while the vessel made a European cruise.
At the naval pay station at Villa, France,
wc took on boaid quite a cargo of carpet,
rugs, etc.. marked Secretary Thompson.
Glove3, silks, laces, etc., were purchased
in large quantities, packed in sealed metal
boxes and water nroof paper. Upon the
return trip we stopped at Punchal, where
we took on board our last cargo, viz: wine.
The exact amount of wine stowed away
here, I am unable to state, but I have no
hesitation that it exceeded the quantity us
ually purchased by importers at one time.
Upon arriving in, the United States in
stead of putting into an important port, we
auchorcd in Hampton road", where they
arc never troubled by collector of customs.
The first transfer of cargo made was to the
liirlit house tender which came into the
roa Is, and to it were transferred casks of
wine marked "Babeoek." A few davs later
the Tallaposa came down from Washington
along side the Saratoga after dark and the
remainder of the cargo was taken by her.
The bulk of the cargo was marked us
consigned to such humble citizeus as Sec
retary Thompson, Gen. Sherman, Commo
dore English and others of the same stand
ing. Ot course improper use might have
been made of their names by the real smug
glers to daunt prying customs official.
Net year while still cu the Saratoga, I
went to Halifax. There we purchased the
same large amount of bottled goods, and
brought back an equally valuable cargo."

tendents and through these to raise a fund
tompport missionary work anion? these
men. Mr. Davis, the pioneer missionary
among the lumbermen, said nine-tenths of

superintendent of fan work, suggested
night meetings for employes on fair
grounds; also that legislative action prohib
iting the sale of liquor on fair grounds be

states have raised the age of consent
through the influence of this movement:
Colorado from 12 to IS: Washington Ter

12. In Massachusetts the legislature has
