EE PRESBYTERIANS IN SESSION.
They Will Probably Iecide the Tronblotis
Washington, May 19. The Presbyteri
an general assembly has begun a mo
mentous session here, its first one in this
city for forty-one years. At this session
the Briggs case will come up for final
decison, and all the leaders of church
thought are present. The first session was
begun with a religious service in the New
York Avenue church, where Lincoln wor
shiped, and his pew of walnut has leen
put in its original place, nil the other pews
being of oak now. Moderator William C.
Young, of Danville, Ky., was in the chair,
and after singing and prayer he preached
the opening sermon.
His sermon was a disquisition on the Bible
whtch he claimed, when freed from all
errors of translation, to be the very enact
ment of Ood. Jesus Christ had recognized
the Old Testament as the utterance of lioil
to its minutest detail, and upon no other
theory of belief could the church claim a
divine and infallible constitution.
The afternoon session was occupied with
the election of a moderator. The nominees
were Kev. C. A. Dickey, of Philadelphia;
Kev. tJ. A. linker, same city; Kev. W. J.
Craig, of McCormick university, Chicago;
Kev. C. V. Stewart, of Washington. Kev.
Dickey withdrew his name, and so did Kev.
Stewart, and Dr. Craig was elected on first
ballot. He was warmly applauded.

lowed the induction of the moderator into
the chair, and the Kev. Dr. Dartlett then
welcomed the assembly to Washington.
Assistants to the stated clerk were then
appointed and a Sunday fair closing reso
lution unanimously adopted and copies or
dered sent to I 'resident Cleveland ami
Hon. T. W. Palmer and the assembly ad
journed for the day.

The State Demand to Know Why tbe
Distillery and Feeding Company Should
lie Permitted to Kzlst The Company
Charged with Evading the Lav and
Csnrplng Unrighteous Powers Sam
mons Served on Greenhnt.
Chicago, May 19. An action at law to
break the Distilling and Cattle Feeding
company with its $35,000,000 capital, other
wise known as the Whisky Trust, has been
begun in the circuit court here. It is a
quo warranto proceeding, brought by At
torney General Moloney ia the name of the
people of the state of Illinois to compel the
trust to appear in court and show by what
right it has misused and perverted its
franchises, and now assumes such liberties,
powers, and privileges as it exercises.
The Court Orders the Utile.
A petition for leave to file information in
the quo warranto proceedings was pre
sented to Judge Tuley by the attorney gen
eral, accoupanied by Judge Moran and
Levy Mayer, of counsel in the rase. The
court ordered a rule nisi entered against
the Distilling and Cattle Feeding company
to appear at 10 a, m. May Ui to show cause,
if any they can, why leave should not be
granted to file information in the nature of
a quo warranto. The court ordered that R
summons might issue against am- olliciT
of the company, and the bulky petition
was then taken down to the office of the
clerk, where it was filed.
Substance of tlie IVtitien.
The petition sets out the offenses against
the law committed by the trust by reviewing
at length the history of the corporation,
declaring that it uTs been operated in such
a manner that it has evaded the law and
usurped powers not legally conferred upon
It. The petitioner alleges that the concern
exercises such power of control over the
output of distillery products ami overdeal
ers as to destroy all competition in their
manufacture and sale. That it has ex
ceeded its franchise in acquiring the whole
property and rights of certain distilleries
and closing them, thus destroying nil di
versity of competition between them and
the distilleries operated by the trust. Hy
means of a rebate system, it is nlleged, the
company is enabled to bring under its con
trol every dealer who becomes a patron of
it and thus force him to give the company
his exclusive trade, thus enabling it to
dictate prices toconsumers at pleasure.
.reenliut Served with a Summons.
President Greenhnt was standing in the
corridor of the Grand Pacific when an
officer served him with f summons to ap
pear on the "fith inst. to answer quo
warranto proceedings. Later when made
acquainted with the chtrges he said: '-I
don't know what is behind it. Neither I
nor any of may colleagues on this board cf
directors had any intimation of this net ion.
I can't conceive who is inspiring it. Cer
tainly not the sttx'kholders who protested
against the bond issue. Their opposition
sprang from a belief that the bonds would
send down the stock, but today's quota
tions are evidence that the stock will not
AVill Certainty right It Qut.
"While the stock fluctuated somewhat it
closed a couple of points higher. And then
it would have leen ahsurcd to think for a
moment that they would resort to a meas
ure which if successful would not only de
feat the bond issue, but destroy their stock.
We shall certainly fight the bill. As to
the charges made they are the usual ones
made against monopolies. That rebate
matter is a purely business transaction."
THE CARRIER NOT RESPONSIBLE.
Jury Derision in a Suit Kesulting From
the Tioga F.xploftton.
CniCAf;o, May 19. The suit brought by
Hoda Braxton against the Union Steam
boat company for ?.",000 for the loss of her
husband, a colored dock hand, who lost
his life in an explosion of naphtha on board
the steamer Tioga in July, 189.1, was de
cided br a jury in the federal court in
favor of the defendant. The explosion was
caused by the lowering of a lighted lantern
into the hold of the steamship, which was
filled with barrels of naphtha that had
been hipped by the Genesee Oil works of
Buffalo to its agents here. Instead of bear
ing the legal brand of naphtha the barrels
were marked only "Diamond H.''
Counsel for plaintifT sought to fix the re
sponsibility on the carriers on the ground
that the barrels were not marked in ac
cordance with law, though accepted as
freight, and nlso that several employes of
the company had knowledge of the real
character of the shipments. Defendant's
attorneys disclaimed all responsibility,
claiming that they had accepted the bar
rels in good faith from the consignors as
containing only a safe oil. The case was
of great interest to lawyer?, as fixing the
responsibility of the lake carriers, and also
of much importance to the relatives of the
twenty-one men killed by the explosion.

organize a militia force of 53,000 men, the
idea being to have an army in readiness in
case the trouble of last winter over the or
ganization of the legislature should be re

provoked considerable discussion, but it
finally failed of adoption owing to the oppo
sition of the governor and the lieutenant
governor. It was finally decided that a
militia force of 1,200. men only should be
maintained, and that all of the companies
in the state should be reorganized, and only
men friendly to the administration be per
