ot. Louis, Augun 2A. The iinireshlon
Is now gaining ground that Col. Churchill
has not laid hi full suspicions before the
detectives, but Is holding some scrap of the
family knowledge back (or private reason.
A prominent detective mid to a repor'er
this morning; "You may be certain that
they have not told u all. It is evident
from ttie developments, for you know thoy
first &strtd Mary had no male company
except two young men, and now It turns
out that jhe u.t'd to hold secret interviews,
and open .iie too, all about tbe iieliilmr
bitod, but they said nothing until we found
it out. I would not be surprised If they bad
a well defined notion of where the girl is,
but want lo let things blow over a little
before In iuging her out. Their failure to
offer a reward looks like It. "
Chief Hovil remarked: "I am of tho
eaino opinion a yesterday lhat the L'lrl
left home of her own accord with a lover,
and that .he will return in a day or so. Why
I have formed tlili opinion I urn not at
liberty lo .tali- at present. Still, when be
lievmj: this, eveiyiiiing in any way connect
ed with the ca.e is carefully worked
out, so that no ground may be left uncov
ered." Tbe police under Serjeant Murry raided
iii.-il I rami- dwelling at the corner of
Lespt raie and (Jyer avenues early this
morning upon suspicion that the missing
girl was there, Inn cut no clue of her. The
house is occupied by a nero anil his wife,
both of w hom work out during the day, and
the procure nf p.-fMitis at the house earlier
in t.ie evetiiti,' was explained ly the fact
Unit they had come there for washing.
a viVAcwrs young i.ahy, "
who sat on the same seal with Mis Churc
hill in the Stoddard school, said, in conver
sation with the reporter, that she was sure
that everybody vv,i mistaken about Miss
Churchill's nature, "Uf course she was
quiet, " said the yoiin' lady, "but not too
quiet, you know. I Mippose you have, as
a reporter, heard people say that still
water run deep; well, Miss Churchill was
verv still water. I ued to think be 'ore I
knew her real woll that she was too quiet
and too good for me, lint, ' ' and the young
lady laiiirhrit, 'he wasn't, that's ill.

Ex-Oovernor John 8. I'help Aoeorded
the Tltlo by a New York Paper
What the Editor of New Ycrk Had
to Bay Yesterday.
New York, August 25. The World
says: "Tim tar'ff Issue ii brought Into the
Democratic party In a very unexpected
manner by iho appearance of John 8.
Phelps, of Missouri, as president of the
Missouri Free Trade League, Mr, Phelps
Is a Missouri Tilden. He was a Democrat,
an fX-(iovernor, has destroyed his hup
tlsmiil record, Is suspected of willingness to
run again and his present state of health Is
mystery. In ability and patriotism and
ago and health he is very much like Tilden.
His appearance al the head of a free trade
league and his calling of a convention of
free trade to meet in St. Louis October 2
are nothing less than a declaration of war,
and granting letters of marque and repri
sal . Should It happen, however, that thil
outbreak of hostilities Is too premature we
believe tha. the allegiance ot Missouri to
tbe Democratic party will not be shaken
Tbe Times saya; "The bugbear of con
vict labor was brought before the Senate In
vestigating Committee yesterday by a Chi
cago witness. He seemed to lijeet to tha
employment of convicts In any kind of
skilled labor, whether by contract or oth
erwise, on the ground that it brought them
Into competition with free laborers. It Is
plain that If prison labor is properly regu
lated it product s no more competition than
that of an citial number of workmen out ol
prison, and the question is whether the !
working men expect to gain anything by
keeping a certain number of persons out of
work, and having them supported at the
public expense. According to what sems
to lie I heir argument It would be a gain for
them to have more crlmi nals, provided they
were kept in Idleness or employed In pure
ly unproductive labor. Their Ideas on the
subject spring for the most part from sheer
REDUCE THE TAX AND'wniSKY.
The Herald says: "There I a simple
remedy for Illicit distilling In the moun
tains of North Carolina and Tennesse. Let
the tax on whisky (which at present is 00
cents per gallon) be reduced one-half or to
fifty cents per gallon, as ba been suggested
by noted economists who have carefully
studied the subject: then the gain by
unlawful work would not pay for
the risks Incurred. The
mountaineer would still turn tholr
corn into whisky, which is almost tbe only
profitable way of getting it to market, but
they would prefer prompt payment cf tbe
lax to tbe likelihood of having their stills
Je stroyed and of being called upon at un
expected times to guard their property and
perhaps to shoot revenue officers.
