WAsnraoTON, D- C,, Nov. 4. Commissioner
Evans, of tho Internal Revenue Bureau,
has submitted his annual report to
Secretary Folger, Tho receipts for tho fiscal
year, ended SO, 18S3, were 914l,Ktt,:U4,
and for tho first three months of tho current
year $29,072,178. Tho general condition of
tlip sorvico Is good. In one or two localities
there are some things to be corrected
In tho manner of administration, but thcso
are not of very great moment, and it h
thought all cause of complaint will noon
disappear. Ho rofcrs mainly to the Fifth
and Sixth districts of North Carol Inn,
where some abuses of long standing are being
gradually removed. No extensive
frauds are being perpetrated upon the Government
by persons required to pay Internal
rovenue taxes. Evidence accumulates
dally that oven in thoso portions of the
country, where at one period it was not regarded
as disreputable to resort to nn dc
vlco to defeat tho collection of internal revenue,
thcro is a healthy change of
and it is not difficult to secure
tho conviction of tho guilty.
No extensivo organization exists anywhere
in tho country whoso object Is to defraud
the Government of its internal revenue
While these general statements .are true, I,
is equally true that not only have per.ou
been guilty of misdemeanors, but they haw
not hesitated to commit tho gravest crimci
in resisting tho Internal revenue ofllcers In
their efforts to discharge their duties. Hr
urges an amendment to the laws fixing
for the prosecution of offenses
against tho rovenue laws nt a much les.
period than fivo years. As now provided
by law, except in cases where the nceiued
places himself boyond tho jurisdiction oi
tho court of tho district where tho offense
was committed) in nearly' every Instance
where a conviction has boon secured tho offense
was committed within two years be
fore tho indictment was found. Case old
er than two years are almost InvariuM;
lost by tho Government, Ho has Ixen
strongly urged to recommend a proclanm
tion of general amnesty to all perrons Vii
have retailed distilled spirits without tit
payment of a special tax, aud to all p.
who have operated small distilleries
without registering tho same, and complying
with other laws and regulations, ThIs
view is urged by its advocates upon the
ground 'that a largo number of thoso thuh
engaged aro desirous of abaudoulug
their unlawful practices, but, having
.long been violators of tho
law, t'bey see no special Inducement
to leave off If nt any time tlioy aro to bo
arrested' for what wu douo within five
years, Tho expenditure? for the discovery
and punibhment of fraud wero $(11,275;
number of stills seized 307; persons arrested,
1,(2$, flnd one ofllcer of tho rovenue service
killed. There has been generally
throughout the country little dls)ositioii to
ovudo payment of internal revenue taxes.
On the coutrnry, thnre has been evinced by
tho great body of tax-payers a willing
obedience to the laws. Tnero has been no
relaxation on tho part of olUcers to secure
tho close and faithful collection of tho
taxes. In portions of tho country, notably
in the more remote uud sparsely Bottled
districts of tho Southern States, within a
few years the production of and trafile in
illicit spirits 'and tobacco have pry vailed to
n greut extent. In homo districts formidable
combinations existed to resist tho collection
of taxo", uud the authority of the
Govenunenl was openly defied. Tho enforcement
of laws was attended with great
dilllcultv ami not unfrequently with loss of
life to the officer. Tho policy adopted to
execute the law firmly and vigorously, but
impartially and lu a conciliatory a maim.T
as possible, has brought about a better public
sentiment uud u decided Improvement in
tho condition of affairs in this respect in
the localities referred to. Seizures ot
projxrty for violation of internal revenue
laws during tho fiscal year were 41,'.KJ,.
gallons of distilled spirits, 60,053 pounds of
tobacco, 512,444 cigars and miscellaneous
property, tho total valuation of which was
$mi,Kj, and for the quarter ending
!J0, 18811, tho value of the property
seized was $:4,4(ft The estimated expense
of tho service for the fiscal year ending
Juno 80. 18S"), is $4.DW,1W. Tho number of
cigars reported having been manufactured
in tho United State5 during tho twelve
months ended December ai, 1&S2, is 3,100,-000,000.
and of cigarettes 000,000,000, Tho
Commissioner estimates that the new revenue
law of lust March will cause a reduc
tion of revenue of $'U5(OO0f000 during
tho next fiscal year. In tho statistical
portions of tho reort are found the
following figures: Number of tobacco factories
in operution during tho year, 774, using
t00,3,iilii pound of materlul which
yielded 108,781,420 pounds of ummifucturva

How i'hleaco Qfintlomeii .Mnnutro to
Cnicuoo, Nov. 5. A largo number of
sporting men wont in carriages last night
to a point on the Brighton Road, a few
miles out of tho city. Two of tho party
curried dogs carefully swathed in fianuol,
and one of thoso was found to be "Senator,"
a well-known canine from "Washington, D.
C. "Senator" is tlueo years old, rather
heavily built, with 'good stout liraba and
showing a, good deal of strength. Tho
obcr pup was "Tommy B," Chicago pet,
well known. Though not oa lieayy
as "Senator," he had a thoroughbred
appearanco about him that won him many
friends. There were present sports from
Washington, Baltimpre, New York and
Chicago, aud tho 6takcs wero $500 a side
The fight lasted one hour and six minutes,
and seven rounds in all were fought. After
tho usual preliminaries of sponging and
lasting, tho dogs were put down and immediately
rushed together, "Tommy B." got
tho first grip on "SenatorV shoulder, tho
latter retaliating by getting "Tommy" by
tho jaw. After holding on for some time,
"Tommy" threw "Senator," and went for
his thfoat in a lively manner. Time was
called and the dogs separated, "Tommy'
being tho favorite in the betting. After
five minutes' interval tho second round was
commenced by "Senator" getting "Tommy"
by tho throat. Tho dogs fought all
over tho ring, "Tommy" getting decidedly
tho worst of it, aud showing signs
of weakness. "When time was called, at tho
third round, "Tommy" came up
and wont to work in a plucky manner,
though It was evident that ho was
overmatched both in size, skill and strength.
"Senator" had all the best of tho third and
succeeding rounds, and chowod tho unfortunate
"Tommy" at his will Tho Chicago
dog, however, behaving in tho pluckiest
mann6r, notwithstanding that tho iteh was
being literally torn frorf his body. In tho
seventh round "Seuator" got him fairly
and squaroly by tho throat, and tho two
laid on tho ground togother, "Senator"
panting from his oxertions. Tho unfortunate
"Tommy" took one look at his conqueror
and then with nn agonizing yelp departed
this life. "Tommy" was valued by
his owner at over 800, that figure having
been refused for him. Tho fight was one
of tho best and most stubborn witnessed
for somo time, but weight told. Tho
authorities did not interfere, and tho party
returned to tho city peacefully.

of tho great sensation her disappearance
had caused. A week ago &ho was appointed
superintendent of one of tho wards
in the Lidiana Asylum for tho Insane, whero

four hours a day on the piano. Sho

by tho arrestof Christian Hoische, formerly
Accountant General of Paraguay and confidential
adviser of tho King of that country.
Tho complainant is Theodore Barow-ski,
a wealthy merchant of Assumption.

servant of the King to the homo of tho merchant

months ago Heischo, together with Mmo.
Barowski and her four-year-old daughter,
embarked for London and thence to the
Continent, whero they paid a long visit to
tho parents of the unfaithful wife. During

who had discovered the whereabouts of tho
fugitives, reached hero and had Ucischo

Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 5. A Princeton
dispatch says Mrs. Ellen Long, widow, and
L. S, Whittemoro, father of the boy found
in the river with his throat cut, havo
been arrested for tho murder. Detectives
who took tho caso had their suspicions
turned to Mrs. Long because of rumors
that sho once attempted to poison
ros wifo and failed. Searching her
houso. thoy found tho bloody clothes which
she had been wearing up to the murder and
a butcher knife and two razors stained with
blood. In a well on her premises was found
a club with blood marks. Neighbors say
that a criminal Intimacy existea
between tho widow and Whlttemore,
and that it was known to his
nine-year-old son, who was
thus disposed of to stop scaudal. The
loy was missing ten days, but the father
made little effort to find him. The theory
is that the boy was killed by Mrs. Long In
her cellar, aud that, his father carried tho
body to tho river and hid it In a place
whero ho pretended to first discover it ten
days later. Mrs. Long is a daughter of ex-.County
