The Befalling Element in the Legisla

New York, Feb. 4. The New York
Legislature U getting Into a marl over tbe
excise question, which It likely to play a
pretty Important part In the next election,
Tbe discussion over excise in New York
City has been fairly opened in Joint com
ml' tee of tbe Senate and the Assembly.
Tbe bill under discussion, was what
ii known as "the Hii(h License bill, "
Introduced by Mr. Roosevelt, and
which proposes to Increase the present II
eense fees to $300 for the Rule of distilled
liquors and 'AU for tbe sale of ale or beer,
tbe act to apply to all cities of over 100,000
Inhabitants. Although tbe measure is nomi
nally one affecting tbe whole State, I lls
cusslon Ii virtually a controversy o f the
New York excise question, for tbe i aon
that tbe liquor-dealers of this city
are io numerous and so danger
ously powerful that determined or
gan ixod opposition to any corrective excise
legislation is directed from and is con
trolled by the liquor Interests of New York.
TAMMANY MTSTERIOUilT (.ILK NT.
Tammany Hall has always maintained a
o'ose relationship witb the liquor-dealers.
Thus far, however, in Ibis agitation Tam
many has offered no organized opposition
to tbe measure. Tbls baa caused much
comment, and those who have looked clos
est after the matter, point to the fact thiit
Mr. Kelly's organ has for some time been
enira,'ed In publishing a series of
articles aimed at a number of presumed
Tammany allies, and declaring "the dives
must go," that the liquor dealers were be
coming too numerous, and that the liquor
traffic needed reformation and legal re
striction. Tbe opinion among tbe shrewd
est observers Ii tbat Tammany is playing a
very deep game witb the excise question.
Tbe Idea prevalent Is that Tammany alms
at making tbe liquor dealers of New York a
sort of close political corporation, mulct
ing the dealers to a limited number in eacb
election district, and permitting the license
fee to be placed at a high price. It
Is further understood that when the weed
ing out pn;-s begins the Jives'' must
i(0 tbe "dives' ' in toil case being all
saloons not under Tammany control. Tbe
high-license fee is then to be worked thus:
Tbe fee will be exchanged for votes. When
a man who can control a certain number of
votes finds It difficult to furnish tbe neces
sary number of dollars, he Is to enroll his
vote in Tammany interests, and is then
either to be protected In evading the li
cense law, or, if the stem necessity of cash
obtrudes itself, tbe money will be furnish
THB KBFCBMCAXS I.V A FIX.
Republicans in tbe Legislature, mean
time, are, It is said, in a fix. They prom
ised In the Richfield Sprtngs platform to
submit a prohibitory amendment to the
people, and the Sons of 'Temperance peo
ple Insist on prohibition or nothing. John
J. O'Brien went to Albany from New York
Wednesday, and said if a prohibitory
amendment Is passed by the Legislature
thousands of German Republicans will de
sert tbe party; that tbe State will go Demo
cratic on tbe Presidential election and a
Democratic Legislature will be chosen, en
tailing a loss of a United States Senator to
tbe H-publlcan party. Mr. O'Brien there
fore reooni mended tbat tbe Ricbfiuld
Springs should not be kept, lie said the
temperance people might be placated by
passing tbe Scott law of Ohio. Tbe Re
publican members are inclined to accept
To meet this end a bill modeled after Jibe
Scott law baa been Introduced in the
Assembly. Tbe principal point in the bill
is. tbat It abolishes tbe present license sys
tem and subetltutes.in Its place a tax systf m
making the tax a lieu ou the real estate
where the liquor Is sold, regardless of in
real or personal property of the liqu
dealer; tbat Is, the person owning thr
building In which is located tbe liquor stoic
hall be responsible for the tax. Tbe tax
shall be $25 a month or $300 a year for sel
ling spirituous liquors, and $12.50 a montb
or $150 a year for selling fermented malt
liquors. The revenue derived Is to be ap
plied to tbe maioti nance of the police and
the relief of the poor.
The Shelby Indictment.

Saturday night, where tbe General ia to
appear to-day te answer to tbe charge of
carrying concealed weapons, and for whiob
an Indictment was returned sgalnst him by
the Daviess County Grand Jury. Mr.
Showalter stated to your correspondent
tbat Gen. Shelby bad offered to plead guil
ty and pay a fine rather than go to tbe
trouble and expense of a trip to Gallatin,
but that be was notified Saturday that no
oompromlie would be made on such terms,
tbat tbe penalty was a flue and imprison
ment or both. Tbe General does not think
be is guilty legally, even though offering to
make that plea, and as it has been refused,
be will see the matter through. Mr. Sho
walter says there it a question of constitu
tional right involved, and tbe case will bi
taken to the United States Supreme Court
but what Gen. Shelby shall be victorious.

Besom ol the Victim of a Prayerful
Carondzlet, Feb. 4. During the past
few weeks tbe Carondelet letter-carrier has
delivered a number of letters at tbe house
of Mrs. Scbllttler, the wife of tbe missing
Rev. Brother Jacob,- whose relations to
his pretty step-daughter, Annie Wester
mann, bavs caused so much scan
dal. Tbe letter-carrier had to
work himself up tbe long stairs
about twice a day, and then walk
through a long, narrow hallway to the
place where the preacher used to pray with
his step-daughter and teach ber little scrip
ture passages in tbe midnight hour, where
at tbe good wife and mother was greatly
pleased. Mrs. Scbllttler would not believe
harm of her husband and daughter, eveu
alter tbey went to Chicago, but said that
all would be proved right. These recent
letters, however, seemed to contain Inter
esting aud Important m w, as Mrs. Scbllt
tler opened tbein in mat baste aud then
groaned and wept. She declined to di
vulge their contents, but tbe practical
neighbors surmised that a new feature bud
come Into Annie's life while in the Scarlet
Saturday afternoon a street car stopped
in front of Rev. Jacob Sublltter's house,
corner of South Broadway and Haven
streets, and oft stepped a young, pa le
faced woman with a small bundle under
ber arm. She passed through the side
door, and without looking at anybody
walked up stairs. On ber way she placed
tbe bundle on ber arm and handled it rith
great care, as sounds from wltbtn showed
that tbe baby desired to be beard.
A reporter called upon Miss Annie, but
she was told at once by ber mother that
she must not talk. "We have bad enough
trouble," said Mrs. Schlitter, "and we
now want pence. I have bad a good hus
band, out "Here she began crying and
lobbed for some time. Tben she con
tinued; "Somo people say that I am Just

good. You can say in
the papers tbat I pray day

people. And now you must ask no ques
tions. We have suffered cucugh." Tbe
reporter assured her that be only wanted
to talk with Miss Annie and would like to
know Brother Jacob's whereabouts. To
this she gave no reply. It is suppose I,
with good reason, tbat Rev. Scblittler took
tbe girl to a certain house in Chicago and
left her enough money to carry ber over
her troubles, and tben instructed her to
return to her mother as soon as possible;
he then took himself off out of tbe reach
of the law.

Cincinnati, O., Feb. 4. Thn Newj
Journal has the following correspondence
from Columbus: The representatives of
the press who are on duty here wblle they
are not affected by it resent the policy of
casting aspersions upon them and their
profession by certain members of thn Leg
islature who never let an opportunity pan
to assail thorn as hireling liars and inisrep
resentatives of public opinion.'
I do not propose to enter into a defenao
of my colleagues. They need nonq. They
are im-inhers of one of tbe highest profes
sions of tbe nineteenth century. They are
reputable gentlemen, and certainly stand
as high in all tbe walks of life as tbe aver
age legislator. Millions of people depend
upon them dally for information of the
public doings of the men who call them
paid liars and starveling birellngi. It is
tho press, and not tbe rostrum or the leg
islative forum, that shapes and gives vitali
ty to public opinion.
But for the press tbe doings of the Legis
lature would be a mere pantomime, or
wholly a blank, to 900 out of every 1,000 of
tbe people of the state
Wc do not complain that we are excluded
from caucuses, but we do complain that we
are excluded ou tbe ground tbat we are so
cial outcasts by men who are constantly
asking tbathey be fairly represented and
set riht with tUelr constituents In tbe cor
respondence and reports of men who are
constantly buffetted witb the scorn and con
tumely ol men who would dot shine con
spicuously among tbelt constituents In tbe
li:bt of a bare record.
Tbe members of tbe press know tbe
miehtr power of the Archiraedian lever
they bold In tbelr bands tbey know that
there is a pleasant way of telling the truth,
and tbey know that there Is a way of telling
tbe sums truth that will cut and burn like
a red-hot sword, Tbey have put up for
weeks now with scornful allusions, and
heard tbe free press denounced as one of
tbe engines of Hades and darkness; tbey
have hoard their lofty and ennobling pro
fession denounced without reusen and
without stint, and one of these days for
bearance oeastug longer to be a virtue
they will fall back upon tbelr reserved
rights and let tbe public Judge between ac
cusers and accused.
Speaking of the caucus, I am opposed
to it because I am a Democrat and tbe
representative, here upon tbe floor of
the Legislature, of a genuine Democratic
A caucus to formulate a mere party creed
might be permissible, and tbe press and
tbe public probably have no right to know
the process of reasoning and the nature of
tbe debate tbat leads to a given conclusion;
but I take the broad ground tbat a legisla
tive caucus, having tbe power to control
tbe legislative aotlon of tbe whole body and
bind it to put the decrees of tbo caucus
upon tbe statute books, should be open to
the press, and through the
pres to tbe peopls, so that every
constituency represented In tbe
caucus may know whether Its servant prop
erly discbarges bis duty. It forty-two men
are empowered to bind eighty-two, and tbe
eigbty-two in turn shall dominate the leg
islative action of 133, taen tbe public are
entitled to know who tbe forty-two men
are who Impose taxes and the burdeus
and restrictions of Government upon them,
as well as their reasons for their actions in
tbe premises. It does liot avail that doors
shall be locked and guards set to keep tbe
public In Ignorance. The people's millions
are being voted away In seorst, and their
rights and privileges disposed of at tho dic
tum of barely one-fourth of the whole rep
resentative body of tbo people.
A state at the moroy of such a policy is in
peril, and tbe party tbat tolerates and en
courages it is in still greater peril, for tbe
people, to save themselves, will annihilate
the party Itself. I want to see the Demo
cratic party live, and take the national, as
it has taken the state government, out of
the bands of Republican oorruptlonlstsand
caucus Jobbers, and for tbat reason I want
to sco the cauous rule broken, and the
Democratic press and the Democratic vot
ers of the state cannot strike the exter

for tho trial of Sam Cook, colored, for the

The murder was committed on tbe night of
the 6tb of July last. Cook had been pay
ing tbe woman attention for several mouths
and had frequently asked her to marry
bim. Ou the night before the murder be
bad pressed his suit more warmly than
ever, but she ordered blm to quit the bouse
and never speak to her again. The next
day be repeatedly threatened to take ber
life, but as he was so drunk no one needed
his threats. He went to a house where tho
woman was spending the evening and asked
permission to .accompany ber homo, but
she refusod. A litte later she started
home accompanied by a man and a woman.
Cook, followed, and when within a short
distance of her home Cook walked quickly
up behind ber aud placing a revolver close

the spinal cord and tbe victim died eight
weeks after. Cook fled to tbe woods and

THE QUEEN'S aPEKCH.
London, Feb. 4. It Is understood that
tbe Queen in her spceob opening Parlia
ment will congratulate tbe faithful Com
moners upon the satisfactory relations ex
isting between tbelr country and foreign
nations. Likewise upon a more tranquil
statu in Ireland, a result due to tbe benflulal
legislation of .the past few years, and to
stops taken to preserve at all hazards law
anil order throughout tbe country.
In regard to South Africa, the spceob
formally announced tbe resumption of Her
Majesty of control of Busiioland, which
duty Is uud'Ttaken In compliance to tbe
wlsb of the Capo Government In accord
ance with the unanimous desire of the Baa
tits Chiefs and people. State affairs in
other parts of South Afrloa, Inc tiding the
Transvoot, offer a fair prospect of speedy
adjustment of all differences.
In India the efforts of tbe ministers to
improve tbe status of the native popula
tion cannot fail to produce lasting benefits.
So fur as legislation for the United King
dom is concerned the franchise and house
holders' suffrage bill should be tbe first
mentioned, lu provisions will extend to
all these kingdoms. A country govern
ment bill and a London government bill
were also mentioned as measures to be
brought before Parliament. It Is not
probable tbe subject of redistribution will
be referred to In tbe speech.

disease, a resolution was adopted de

A happy surprise it was to Mr. A. R.
Norton, of Bristol, Conn., when ATBLOraoaot
put blm on hia feet, and sent blm cheerfully
about his business. Let him tell hia own story j
"About three weeks ago I was) taken
with a my crick In tha back. For four dare
I was unable to turn In bed without help. d1
when lifted up oould not aUnd on my feet I m
Induced to try Athlophobos, alterdl the tuual
remedies failed. In SO minutes after taking the
Unit dose I oould bear my weight upon ni feet
In two days I was able to get about and attend
to business. In two other eaaea whloh hire
come to my knowledge IU use hia been attended
with the same result."
A poor man in Philadelphia had to bor
row a dollar to buy a bottle of AmxoraoBos.
On account of bis poverty his name shall remain
a secret. He had auffored terribly from Rben
natlsm. no gratefully writes:
" I took my first dose Tuesday afternoon,
and on Wednesday, after but seven doaaa, I had
not a sharp or severe ache left Then I reduced
the dose one-half and took the remainder of tha
bottle. I was able to be steady at work Hll Sat
urday, when I took a severe cold and was oav
able to use my left hand. I purchased another
bottle and by bed time I found relief. Tbe
medicine la all you claim for It"
Investigate Athlopjioros all you pleaeel
Find all the fault you choose with it I and
yet the fact remains, that it is doing what
o other medicine ever could do for Rheu
matism and Neuralgia.
If you cannot get Atrlofhoros of your rrW
plst, we will send it express paid, on mxlpt or
rrgular price one dollar per bottle. Wc prefer
that you buy It from your druggist, but if be
hasn't It, do not be persuaded to try something
else, but order at once from us as directed.
