Grix. Ala., March 10. Rev. D. A. Strut
ton, of Elmott, Tex., a noted evangelist of
the Christian church, was robbed, stripped
naked and flogged within an inch of his
life Wednesday by moonshiners in Wins
ton county, this state, who mistook him
for a revenue agent. Dr. Stmtton had
just closed a series of revival meetings at
Russellville, Ala., and was stopping over
night at the house of a farmer named
Burns, near Kldridge. After he had re
tired for the night a crowd of armed men
on horsback called Burns out, and after
talking with him for a while went into the
house and commanded Dr. Strutton to
Kef used Offers of Identl float ion.
They put a pistol in his face and told
kim to get out at once. He did so, and
then they told him to follow them; after
going about 300 yards from the house he
asked if they were going to take him away;
if so, to allow him to carry his valise. They
returned and got his valise, at the same
time examining the contents in order to
ascertain if he was a detective. He told
them what his business was and offered to
go with them to the nearest telegraph
office and telegraph to the governor of
Texas in regard to himself and his busi
ness. The men refused the offer.
Kicked, Cursed and Robbed Him.
The brutes Kicked and cursed him and
took from him his gold watch, gold-headed
cane, all his money, his overcoat, dress
coat, hat and other article of clothing,
leaving him without a rag of clothes or
money. They left his hymn book. The
moonshiners then took the bridle reins
from their horses and started to hang Dr.
Strutton, but he begged so piteously for
bis life that they concluded, after a con
sultation, to release him after administer
ing a flogging. After beating him until
he could hardly stand the moonshiners be
gan shooting between the doctor's legs and
otherwise maltreating him.
Ordered to Leave the Country.
At last the leader of the gang told the
others to let him go, and told him never to
come back to that country spying. He left
amid showers of bullets. The affair has
created great excitement and indignation
here, and strong efforts will be made to
bring the moonshiners to justice. The cit
izens have appealed to Governor Jones to
offer a rewai i for the desperadoes, and he
will no doubt comply.
WAR WITH THE CROW INDIANS.
Encroachments Results in

paring for actual warfare. This is '.he

Chicago, March 10. According to a
story published in an evening paper "Jim"
Keene, the New York broker, stands to
win or lose $10,0,10,000 in wheat on tha
Chicago board of trade. Keene has ob
tained control of alnmt 20,000,000 bushels
of the best wheat in western storehouses,
the paper says, and has accumulated &
prodigious line of futures. The story con
tinues: The cash end of the deal is in
charge of "Sandy" Kgglestnn and the
speculative end is managed by John Cud-
ahy, both masters in their specialties.
Cornered the Elevator Space.
Nearly all of the "contract" wheat In
Chicago, amounting to about 10,0iHl,000
bushels, is lodged with Kggleston, and
nearly as much more high grade property
in St. Louis, Minneapolis, Duluth and
other western centers is controlled by the
same individual. Besides his immense
cash holdings in this city Eggleston has
cornered about all the elevator space in
Chicago that can by any possibility be
come available for t he storage of new re
ceipts between now and the end of May.
The Rock That May Wreck Him.
It has been charged here for a month or
more that "Jack" Cudahy holds in seven
commission houses 2ti,iXK),000 bushels of
wheat for May delivery and he has kept
the market in his grip for a long time. It
is now discovered that 75 pr cent, of the
trapped short interest is . represented by
"hedges," and this is the rock upon which
the Keene deal my spiit.
EX-OFFICERS TO BE PROSECUTED.
Rut No Legislative Investigation Other
Work of Illinois Solon.
SritiXGFiELD, March 10. The resolution
lor an investigation of ex-auditors and ex
treasurers was debated long in the senate
yesterday, a substitute being adopted in
Jtructing the attorney general to proceed
With the prosecutions as ordered by Lieu
tenant Governor Gill, but declining to en
er upon an investigation. The friends of
Warren, of the Koyal League, who was
excluded from the floor Wednesday, tried
to reconsider that action, but without suc
cess. The resolution placing the Alton

spection was adopted. Johnson has a nw
bill referring to insurance associations
which contains no provisions offensive to
the mutual societies.
Proceedings in the House.
In the honse the attorney general's re
port in relation to the liability of ex-treasurers
and auditors was referred. The bill

OLD SOLDIERS IN MOTION.
They Propose to Fight the Existing Pen
New Vokk, March iO. A movement
against the existing pension laws has been
started among the old soldiers of this city.
Wednesday night Xoah L. Farnham post,
3. A. R., after a long debate on the pres
ent pension system, adopted resolutions
setting forth that the only veterans entitled
to pensions are those who, by reason of
wounds or disabilities incurred in the serv
ice of the country, are prevented from
earning a living, and whose circumstances
justify them in calling upon the country
for support, and declaring that any old
soldier or sailor who applies for or accepts
a pension except under these conditions is
guilty of conduct calculated to injure the
good men who are willing to give their
lives for their country without any reward
save the approval of their own conscience
and that honorable fame that is due to
legislation for Michigan.
Lansing, Mich., March 10. The senate
has passed the bill to permit railways in
corporated under Michigan laws to consoli
date with railways incorporated under the
laws of an adjoining state. Both houses

To Secnre Sunday Opening.
CHICAGO, March 10. The endeavor to
secure the opening of the World's fair on
Sunday will be transferred from the state
courts to tbe United States. An attempt
will be made to get the United States su
preme court to issue an injunction against
restraining the opening of the gates. To
do this the aitit must be brought iu the
name of the state, and Attorney General
Moloney has given his consent. The
grounds of the complaint will be that the
corporation is an Illinois one and congress
had no power to make the obnoxious re
striction. Adjourned Without Electing.

Strike The Ann Arbor Tie-l'p Men Not
Responsible for That Wreck World's
CHICAGO, March 10. Without a dissent
ing vote the general managers of the rail
roads enterine Chicago determined at their
meeting yesterday afternoon to refuse any
demands of the Switchmen's Mutual Aid
association. An answer was sent to the
switchmen by the general managers of the
thirty-two roads centering in Chicago de
stining to grant any increase over the
present schedule of rates and inclosing the
following resolution, which was passed
unanimously at the meeting: "Resolved,
That this association has carefully ex
amined the schedule of wnges paid by the
Chicago roads to foremen aud helpers in
switching seivico and that it finds that
the scale of wages paid on the Chicago
lines is practically uniform.
The Wares High, Kevemie Low.
"And we rind that the switchmen of Chi
cago and vicinity are paid the highest rate
ever paid for a similar service, and higher
than is paid iu many localities. Further,
that the revenue from freight and passen
ger traffic has constantly decreased and the
cost of the service has constantly increased
to the extent that no advance iu wages can
be granted, mid that no change can be
made from the present schedules or rules
affecting the compensation of men engage.l
iu this service."
This answei was sent to the officers of
the Switchmen's association yesterday aft
ernoon. The switchmen have not yet de
termined what course they will pursue,
and officers of tbe association decline to
discuss the situation.
V ill He a Strnccle of (Wants.
If they should decide to strike the fight
against them would be a bitter one, as the
general managers of the thirty-two roads
have determined to act as a unit and tight
the men as one road. A still more signifi
cant determination reached by tbe general
managers is nn agreement to discharge all
union men on their lines in case the roads
should te crippled by a strike of switch
men. This will apply to engineers, con
ductors, firemen and in fact all branches
of organized railroad labor. The general
managers say that they will not pay union
men for doing nothing when their idleness
is enforced by strikers to whom they are
giving aid and comfort.
Preparing for a l"oillc Fight.
Iu the event of a general dismissal of
union men the vacancies are to be filled as
ri.pidly as possible with non-union men,
the road to act in coticrt in securing new
men and to t'Istribute them according to
the needs of the individual roads. A tele
gram from ISaltiniore says thi-.t an agent of
the combined Chicago railways is there
authorized to employ as many meu conver
sant with the duties as switchmen, yard
men.conductors.and the handling of trains
as come along. The agent tells each appli
cant that the pay will ' be iiK to $75 a
month. Competent yard liosses are in -e-uiand
also. No promises are exacted about
joining labor organization.
Nearly TOO Applications.
A telegram from Xew York says that up
to noon yesterday the agent of the Chicago
railways there hail received 4VS applica
tions of men who signified ti'eir willing
ness to accept situatious as yard brakemen,
switchmen or helpers 'away from Xew
York.' The j-lace has lieen open only a few
days. Tke fact that similar agencies have
been opened In other large eastern cities
seems to indicate to the minds of laoor
men that the companies entering Chicago
anticipate a big strike iu tbe near future
and that they are preparing to defeat any
attempt to interrupt the roads."
