A Eig Robbery In CharIeston.
Charleston is very much stirred up over
the systematic robbery of one of the largest
wholesale houses on East Bay, and a Pin
kerton detective who has been working up
the case has just made his report. it is
said that since the death of the se ior som
six years ago the houise' has fallen behind
between $100.;0 :md b1O00 but it was
not until six moutis ago that the house su
pectetd anything wro . A Pinketon_ de
tective was sent for. S'oon after this a
vyoung man was given em.ymlit in the
store and gradually worked hinself up from
porter, watchman, assistant shipping clerk.
etc, remaning in each departnieit long
cuough to become thorouhly acquainted
with his fellow clerks The young man
turned out to be a detective and about a
week ago he returned to his emiplovers and
made his report to the agency who sent it
to the house. The r-port exposed the
whole business and designated the gilty
parties. The !!rm is now treating with te
with a view to recovering a portion of the
spoils. It is said that one of the clerks o
salesmen, or whoever lie is (nobody seems
to know who he is.) has offered $5,000 to
get off. This enterprising youth, so the
story goes, has managed in five or six years
to accunuite a deposit of $10,000 in the
city bank, and to do this on a salary of $75
per month.' There are said to be three or
four others who have been equally success
ful in -business, and-it is stated that the
reason-the matter has been kept quiet is be
cause the firm is endeavoring to compromise
withits wealthy employees. This, it may be
repeated, is simply a-summary of the thous
and and one rumors that are flying about
condensed and put into narrative form.
The RaIlroads and the Law.
Prominent railroad men suggest a con
vention of railroad representatives to agree
upon a rise of 100 per cent. in through
freight rates, with the anticipated effect of
creatig a panic and bringing about the re
peal of the inter-State commerce Act.
Such an advance would pay the railroads
very well unttl the commissioners brought
them to books for vi, lating the fundamental
requirement of the act, which is that the
rates shall be "reasonable and just." An
advance of 100 per cent. in rates at one
time by all the railroads would look like a
pool or conspiracy, and would have to be
explained satisfactorily by reference to de
tails. There is a penalty of $5,000 for each
violation of the act. This penalty, together
with the terrors of an investigation, will
probably prevent any unnecessary advance
of rates. The better policy for the rail
roads is to accept the Act loyally and try to
carry it out in good faith. They have long
desired something to protect them from
themselves, and they may yet find the inter
State commerce Act the very thing they
have wanted. It subjects them to the re
stiaints of law, and must tend to substi
tute-civilized methods for barbarous and
predatory habits. There are some roads
probably that never had a solid basis of
business. But to roads that are really
needed, quiet, steady and honest ways, such
as the law requires, will in the end be ad
-nitted to be better. Stockholders will un
doubtedly fare better when railroad ofiicials
lose their autocratic powers and wild-eat
adventures have an end.-Baltimore Sun.
Head ur ge r44,- erce.
Officers of. high rank ~in the army are
confident that no action will be taken in
the matter of the appointment of a new
chief signal officer for the present. It will
be impossibleto accomplish anything in
the way of '.trmfer of the signal bureau
to the civi. service at this session of Con
gress. It is the general impression that for
this-reason the WVar Department will ase
its'ienuine to postpone the appoinment of
a niew hidf until after the next session of
Congress. Captain Greely will be allowed
to remain at the head of the corps untul the
fate of the proposed changes is deninitely
known. In case the transfer cannot be
effected, it is not the opinion that Capt.
Greely will be made chief signal officer.
It is one oC the '-plums" of the service,
and there is not a colonel of the line who
would not willingly accept it. Gen. Hlazen
held the rank of colonel -when he was ap
-pointed, and it is not probable an officer of
a lower rank could jump to a brigadier
peneralship. Another question has arisen
in tonnection with the temyporary appoint
* mend -ECaptain Greely. The statutes
have it that there shtdl be no temporary ap
tments for a longer period than ten
dys after the death, resignation or dismis
.slofan official. There is somse difference
of opinion as to the proper construction to
be placoed on the statute. The second
comptroller will take up this question
when ten days have expired fronm the death
of Gen. Hazen, and will probably render
some decision on the dispute poimts.
