York City, to a moderate extent also at
Pittsburgh, Louisville, St. Louis, Chicago,
New Orleans, Galveston, Sk Joseph. Bur

Francisco. This warrants a report of a
noticeable gain in the distribution of gen

Interior wagon roads are improved south
and mercantile collections are mors
prompt at Burlington, Detroit, Omaha,
Chicago and elsewhere. Wheat is
weaker and is 4?.'c lower under the influ
ence of an apparently bullish Government
crop report, which when analyzed proves
to be unquestionably untrustworthy. Tha
best available data indicate a total of not
less than 190,000,000 bushels (visible and
invisible) wheat in the country on March
1, 1889, against 210,000,000 bushels one year
previously. Flour is off 10c to 20c, and
corn 11 Xc. 'Additional reports to iirsa
street's as to cotton stock at interior
towns show an aggregate stock on Febru
ary 26, 1889,'at L0-J0 towns of 17,058 bales
of cotton against 273,46a bales February 1,

is in good demand at an advance of one-
sixteenth cent on spot. Business failures

Detectives Think . They Have Him This
Time, Sure Caught in Manitoba.
Bt. Paul, Minn., March 16. A dispatch
from West Selkirk, Man., says Tascotthas
been caught on Lake Winnipeg. No par
ticulars have been received.
Recently five detectives arrived from
Chicago having a clew to the whereabouts-
f Tascott, be being supposed to be work
ine In some of the neighboring lumber
camns. The detectives left here suddenly,
supposedly for British Columbia.
News arrived last evening from Lake
Winnipeg statfhg that Tascott had been
caDtured and is now on the way here in
charge of the detectives. Tascott was cer
tainlv here recently and there is a proba
bility that the right man has been found.
The Pioneer Press Winnipeg special
gives the following more definite state'
ment of the capture of Tascott: "Some
Indians arrived by dog train at two o'clock
yesterday at West Selkirk, conveying the
news that Tascott, the murderer or &neli,
the Chicago millionaire, had just been
captured on Lake Winnipeg by the Chi
cago detectives who, accompanied by the
son-in-law of the murdered man, have
been following a strong clew with the re
sult stated for the past few weeks. They,
arrived near here just after Tascott left
his work to go, he said, to Dakota. How
ever, they are reported to be on their way
to this city with the murderer."
A dispatch received at ten o'clock ast
night from Selkirk says the Indians who
brought the information from Iake Winni
peg have gone to one of the lodges at
the reserve for the night and can not now
be located. Great excitement prevails
among the villagers at Selkirk, but many
are disinclined to believe the report
brought in by the Indians.

Remarkable Statement of trie Prosecuting
Attorney In the Anarchist Case.
Chicago, March 16. A large audience
at the Kenwood Club last night listened
to a paper on "Socialism in America" by
Judge Grinnell, who was State's attorney
in the Anarchist trial. There was fre
quent applause. He said: "The eager
desire of party leaders to obtain and re
tain office keeps Socialism and its attend
ant evils alive. In Chicago Anarchism
is exaggerated out of all proportions
to its power for do good purpose
and some members of both political
parties seem inclined to act so as to catch
this element. In my opinion the talk
about the Anarchists during this last win
ter has been a willful, wicked exaggera
tion of their power, an injury to the fair
name of Chicago, a serious- detriment to
its business interests and I confidently be
lieve tbe purpose of such exaggeration
was purely political. Anarchy as an
organization is dea in America.
Its advocates have 'resolved them
selves ; back .into . their former state
or parentage, namely, Socialism.- "The
Yankee law has terrified them. ' But we
can not with the same ease brush aside
Socialism. That ia here not to be snuffed
out. It can only be' evaded by returning
to the fundamental principles of our Gov
ernment, eschewing paternalism and class
legislation. - .."':

How General and Garrison Courts-Martial
The "Articles of War" provide . for
the trial by courts-martial of all per
sons under the control of the military
authorities of the country who may be
accused of offenses committed against
the regulations and laws enacted' for
the government of tbe armies of the
United States. Unlike the practice in
civil life, the combined powers of both
judge and jury are vested m the officers
composing a court-martial, they delib
erating upon the evidence of the wit
nesses, determining as to the guilt oi
innocence of the defendants, and pass
ing sentence upon culprits. An officer
is appointed as J udge-Advocate, whose
duties are to conduct the prosecution
as well as to act as counsel for the ac
cused when the latter has no legal ad
viser of his own. and to object to any
questions that might lead to an answer
on the part of the defendant tending to eployes to swear.
So-called general courts-martial are
convened for the hearing and judg
ment of important cases and for the
trial of commissioned officers, and may
be appointed by any geaeral officer
commanding a separate army or de
partment. Such a court consists of
thirteen members, unless the exigen
cies of the service prevent the assem
bling of that number of officers; but in
no case may a general court have less
than five members.
Garrison and regimental courts-martial,
having three members, are ap
pointed by the commanding officer of
any post or regiment, and are con
vened for the trial of minor offenses on
the part of any. of the enlisted men
forminar the command. - As the, law
now stands, even the slightest infringe
ment of the rules of discipline calls for
action by a court-martial," and such
petty breaches of good conduct, as ab-,
sence from roll-call or from quarters
after "taps," slovenly or untidy dress,
quarrelsome ' or abusive .language to
comrades or non-commissioned officers,
etc., the penalty for which is. usually
the imposition of a slight fine to be
stopped from the soldier's pay, are
treated with all the form and cere
mony of trials-for grave offenses. The
sworn testimony of the witnesses, . ac
cording to the rules of evidence, must
be reduced to . writing, and a report
made of the proceedings in each case,
as the regulations prohibit tho execu
tion of any sentences by a court-martial
until its action is confirmed by the
officer ordering the" court. When the
fact is taken into consideration that,
according to the report of Colonel
Lieber, Acting Judgo-Advocatc-Gen-eral,
there were 10,447 trials before
garrison courts during the past year in
an army the total peace footing of
which is limited by law to a force of
but 25,000 men, it would seem that a
system les cumbersome and loss irk
some to both officer and men might be
devised bv which nettv violations of
regulations . could be punished - sum
