A SKIN GAME AT A STILL

BONDSMEN IN A BAD FIX.
the L(a| Capadtj Kicudd, Stnmpid
Packages tfefilled, Unlicensed Whole
sallng and Coliailon With the Gov.
eminent Storekeeper and Gauger
Charged—District and Circuit Court
Clerkship Fee* Reduced.
Atlanta, Ga.. Feb. 12. Recently
revenue officials haye swooped down on a
registered distillery in Clavton county,
run by Is bam D, Crawford, a prominent
citizen, who operated it in the name of
"Willis Sanders, an ignorant negro, whom
he paid small monthly wages. It was
charged against Crawford thafhe worked
greater than the legal capacity, refilled
■tamped packages, sold at wholesale
without a license and was In oolluaion
with the governmeut storekeeper and
gamer. The government has made a
©lawn against him lor $7,000. Air. Craw
ford is one of the sureties on the bona of
Collector Crenshaw, ana a great effort is
being made to compromise the case. Mr.
Crawford offers $1,700 in settlement,
and has deposited that amount, witn
Uncle Sara, but the government has de
clined to settle. Further developments
■re expected, as a later investigation oi
the officers shows more crookedness in the
business, and that more parties are inter
ested in it.
THE CLERKSHIP FEES.
There has been a great scramble here
for the clerkship of the United Stales Dis
'til applicants are without
numopn*©^^sir earnestness is inspired
by the s3,so®?',lary. The department at
Washington has just notified Col. Buck,
the present Circuit aud District clerk,
that hereafter the fees tor copying final
records in criminal cases will be disal
lowed. The effect will be in the District
Court, the business is entirely
(©riminal.Tb reduce the tees one-half and
- it will also make a considerable reduc
tion in the Circuit Court. It is asserted
that the fees in the Circuit and the Dia
'triqt Courts, under the old rule, have not
for years realized the full salary allowed
by law. This will be sad news for matiy
of the applicants and may reconcile the
majority to the disappointment in store
for them when the appointment is made.
RAYMOND WILLIAMS’ CASE.
7 Some time ago Raymond Williams, a
begro, was convicted in Chatham Su
perior Court of assault with intent to
murder, aud was sentenced to three years
In the penitentiary. While a motion lor
anew trial was pending a penitentiary
guard, who bad beeo summoned, carried
him to the convict camp. Anew trial
has since been granted, and S. B. Adams,
counsel for Williams, writes the Gov
ernor requesting that the State bear the
expense oi getting Williams back to Sa
vannah. The Governor holds that no
funds are appropriated for this purpose,
and that theie is no law authorizing him
to charge the State with the expense. On
receipt of a certificate of the tacts from
the Clerk of the superior Court of
Chatham county the Governor will have
a guard return Williams at the expense
of the leasees.
The visit of the Governor and Attorney
General to New York, to meet the stock

Cartersville, Ga., Feb. 12.—Tobe

Augusta, Ga., Feb. 12.—T0-day two
policemen who had been acquainted with
the fact of the escape of the Cartersyille
dynamiters noticed two suspicious char

who minutely answered the description
of the Jacksons and attempted their ar

TYPES AT THE CAPITAL.
Lament of an Old Clerk Over His
Misspent Life.
From the New York Star.
Washington, Feb. 10.—The old public
functionary or government clerk is per
haps the most distinct type, and indigi
nous only to this soil. Years of service
nave made him a valuable and indispeu
sahle part of the machinery of govern
ment. His knowledge of details and pre
cedents, methods, forms and decisions
could never be acquired except by a
great length of service. The O. P. F.
lorrns a very respectable part of the resi
dent citizen element, and bis lamily
are inclined to regard administrations,
visitors and Congress as so much ephem
era, which must, in the nature of our
kaleidoscopic political institutions,
change with every administration. The
elite of the old public functionaries re
gard themselves as the government really,
and are firmly of the opinion that chaos
would lollow their general dismissal.
Many of them are married, and manage,
on the meagre salaries paid, to bring up
and educate large families.
I meet one every day who is a tremend
ous old swell in his deportment. His
“get up” and bearing is that of an Eng
lish country gentleman who is ocoupying
his town house for the season, or a gen
eralor admiral in our service on the re
tired list. Nothing could be moreeourtly
and polished than bis address, while his
clothes are ot the latest cut and best
material. Meeting bun sauntering leis
urely down the avenue on bis way, 1 fell
Into conversation with him and expressed
niv surprise that a man who had received
a classical education and had been grad
uated with the highest honors in one of
the professions should have spent the
greater part ol his tile in a department.
Said he; “It is with me as it is with a
thousands; my coming to Washington as
a young man forty years ago, when my
father was the Senator from——, was
the beglimiugofthe marring of my career.
1 took a clerkship to a committee In Con
gress, intending to merely spend the
winter. The defeat of my father aud a
change of fortune caught me in the trap,
with near relations dependent upon me.
Then I was offered, and accepted r clerk
snip in the department. This was
thirty-six years ago. 1 have been there
since. The men who were midshipmen
and second lieutenants when 1 went in
are now Generals and Admirals. Tho
Increase in my salary has been about
SI,OOO, or perhaps a couple of hundreds
more. My idea when 1 went in was to
lay up enough to support me until I could
get tnirlv under way in mv profession.
“Yes, "my friend, 1 have been in that
factory as a regular hand lor thirty-six
years, and I suppose when 1 am too old
and worn out to crawl to the department
I shall be turned out like an old horse to
die on the commons. Meantime my
cousin, the Admiral, and my schoolmate,
the General, and my uncle, the Justice,
are all on the retired list, a grateful re
public has set apart and designed for
their special benefit as a re
waid for long-honored and con
tinuous performance of duty. Mean
time 1 should like to know why men like
me are under the ban and do not come
wiihintbe scope of the country's grati
tilde. 1 have done my duty as well as
they have.
“Have 1 said anything? VVhy, what a
preposterous question! Keep house, sun
port a growing tamily, present a decent
appearance and save money 1 1 should say
not. I’ve lived in a rented house from first
to last, and by merciless economy have al
ways managed to keep my heart above
water, anil that’s about all. lam now
deliberately setting apart a small sum for
the funeral expenses of myself or one of
the family whio may die suddenly. For
let me tell you that a government clerk
with a family who once gets into debt
never gels out. He is no better than a
Mexican peon from that day.
“Do we put our sons in office? Well, I
should say we didn't. In the first ulace,
we haven’t the influence, and if we had,
we would prefer to see them breaking
stone on the Dike or plowing in anew
piece oi cleared ground in the backwoods.
God forbid any son of mine should make
the mistake I did!”
They Took T intypes Instead.
From the Detroit Ftee Drese.
A man and woman were loudly disput
ing iu a doorway on Gratiot street yes
terday when Detective Hooeritz happened
along and asked what was the trouble.
“It’s just this,” replied the tanner.
“She’s my wile. We live out here about
seven miles, and she’s had the toothache
for tbree days and nights. We drove in
this morning to have tbe tooth pulled,
and now she'wants to back out.”
“But it has stopped aching,” protested
the wife.
“Yes, but it will begin again as soon as
we get borne.”
“No it won’t.”
“But we can’t drive fourteen miles and
lose naif a day for nothing.’j
“You might bave your tintype taken,”
suggested ihe detective, “inut will be
tbe next thing to haviug a tooth pulled.”
“I’ll agree to that,” promptly replied
the wife. “I’m willing to suffer, but it's
no use to pull a tooth unless it aches.”
“Well, we’ll do that, then,” observed
the husband, “and I’m much obliged to
you, stranger, for tbe suggestion. There’s
a place right over there, and 1 guess we
cau be periermed on and get home in lime
lor dinner.”

New York, Feb. 12.—Again are tbe
newspapers filled with paragraphs about
Henry E. Abbey. The fortune made bv
introducing Sarah Bernhardt to the
American public and lost in tbe first
operatic season at the Metropolitan Opera
House has been regained in bis tour with
Ratti.* A Wall street speculator has no
more ups and downs than a theatrical
manager in New York. Strakosch made
and lost lortunes aud is said to have re
tired fabulously rich. Bateman, Grau,
Maretzek, Palmer, Jarret, and others liv
ing and dead, who made SIOO,OOO or more
in a season, to be lost at tbe next venture,
stand in marked contrast. Strakosch
seems to be the one exception to tho gen-
eral rule. He is the Jav Gould while the
others are t he Jacob Littles, John Thomp
sons, Jim Keenes and Rufus Hatches oi
theatrical speculations—rich to-day ami
poor to-morrow, Tneir fortunes slip
through their lingers like seeds. Marvel
ous stories are told of the receipts at
I’atti’s performances, and Abbey is again
called the Napoleon ol managers, and
credited with a fortune which may be lost
next year. There are men in the mana
gerial line, however, who pile up for
tunes slowly and surely, yet so unobtru
sively that they are entirely overlooked.
They resemble the old-fashioned brokers
Of Wall street, who take their commis
sions and are never seduced into specu
lations. 1 met one of these men to-day.
He is broad-shouldered and handsome. A
well-wuxtd moustache adorns his florid
face. His hair is parted in the middle.
Barring a profusion ot diamonds, he
dresses in exquisite taste. His cravats
are the piDk of perfection. No gentle
man ever wore a more glossy hat. All
this outward display is backed by naturul
geniality and generosity of character. I
have known him to telephone for his pri
vate carriage and drive over the city Irom
midnight to daylight to serve a Iriend.
He Is kuowD on every block in the city by
rich aud poor. While 1 was talking with
him a millionaire sought his advice con
cerning a real estate investment, and a
committee of longshoremen called upon
him and offered to handle free of oharge
all the coal required in his theatres dur
ing tbe strike.
1 am writing of Harry Miner. No
greater contrast to Lester Wallaok In
personal appearance and business tact
could be founu. Wallack has lost a for
ture iu catering to the tastes of the un
pe r ten in amusements, and Miner has
made a fortune in pleasing the “lower
twenty” down town. 1 doubt whether
Miner blmsell knows how rioti be is. He
must he worth between $2,000,000 and
$3,000,000. He owns five theatres, three
in New York, one iu Brooklyn and one iu
Newark, N. J. He not only ownS the
buildings, but he owns tbe ground on
which they are built. He is now erect
ing two more opera bouses, one in Troy,
and another in Brooklyn. He has three
or four theatrical combinations on tbe
road, none of which has ever lost money.
Wealth has poured into his pockets in a
never ceasing stream for the last twelve
years. It has been tucked awav in real
estate purchases, all of which have
doubled in value. He recently paid $132,-
000 lor a house in Madison avenue. His
Income must exceed $300,000 a year. His
two theatres in the Bowery alone netted
him last season *N7,000. Add to this $20.-
000 Irom his Eighth Avenue theatre,
$7,000 from bis Brooklyn theatre, and
$30,000 from his traveling companies, and
you have tbe sum of $150,000. This year
the income from the Newark Opera House
is to be added. It will probably exceed
$45,000.
>iinp is 4.8 years old. He was born in I
this city, and be graduated attbe Mechan
ics Institute in 1857- He studied medi
cine, and began a prosperous career by
establishing drug stores in populous dis
tricts. Of a restless disposition, he drift
ed into the ocean of amusements, and
quickly sold out nis pharmacies. He was
the first to return to cheap prices alter the
war, and he was also tbe first to reap the
harvest that followed. His People’s the
atre in the Bowery is one ol the hand
somest in the city. The loobies are spa
cious and finely turnished, and the best
seat in the bouse can be bougat lor 75c.
All the reigning stars appear. Henry
Irving, Lawrence Barrett, Mrs. Langtry,
Sarah Bern nardt.Mary Anderson and oth
ers are no strangers in his theatres. He
leeimply coining money by recognizing
in a business way tbe fact that the war is
over and that specie payment has been re
sumed. Heemploysenough workmen and
artists to fill two regiments.
Miner is usually the first New York
manager to recognize the claims of the
suffering and the oppressed. He led off
in benefits for the yellow fever and tbe
Charleston sufferers, and be has aiready
given a night’s receipts to the etriking
longshoremen. He is President of tbe
Actors’ Fund Association, and it was un
der bis management that it took a benefit
unrivaled in the bistory of the American
stage. Fresident Cleveland, Gov. Hill and
Mayor Grace occupied private boxes, and
the’net receipts exceeded $15,000. With
his vast popularity Miner might become
a most successful politician. All efforts
to draw him into the field of politics,
however, have tailed. He owns a large
farm over in New Jersey, where he re
tires when jaded by the toils of life, and
he has a beautilul summer residence on
tbe sound.
Abbey is meteoric and attracts much
attention. Miner is a fixed star, with a
shady effulgence. Both are great mana
gers ; bow many have beard of Abbey,
and how few have beard ol' Miner. II
Abbey be the Nauoleon of Managors,
Miner may as truly be 'm ined the Turenue
of the theatrical profession.
11.
Dime museums and sbooting galleries
are having a neck and neck race on the
Bowery. There are two or three of each
kind on every block. The galleries occu
py small stores. Inside there is acounter
running across the width of the room.
Tbe air, spring or cartridge rifles are on
these,and tnere the marksman stands and
bangs away. The largetß are set, in fe
male figures, cut from the large colored
posters that announce tbe coming of
burlesque troups. Glancing over his
sighls a man sees a pair of sbanely legs
encased in lights, a swelling bust and a
prett y lace. There is no inducement to fire
at such an attractive object with deadly
Intent, and I can’t imagine wby such tar
gets are used. If the target men would
setup Anthony Comstock, a plumber, a
dude, or something ol that kind their
business wouldoerlainly increase. Who
patronizes these gall' ries? A man may
drop in occasionally, but at a cm a snoi
the profits from that source cannot he
very great. Some say that they are sup
ported by the anarchists who use them to
perfect their nflu and pistol practice, but
I can hardly believe that, as anarchists
are averse to paying out even a cent if
they can help it. Besides tbe practice of
firing at a pretty woman, however revolu
tionary ttiat might seem, would not bo of
much value when confronted by an an
grr policeman with a big club.
The trutb is that many of those gal
leries are only masks for opium Joints.
The .joint is in tbe rear back of the tar
gets, and there tbe devotees ol Ihcdrtig
gather to “hit the pipe.” The police are
not likely to venture across ihe bullet
swept area, so that the business is com
paratively safe.
The idea of thecoal handlers aud long
shoremen in striking is to so incommode
Ibe public that the employers will be
forced to surrender bv the pressure of
public oninion. The blow will as usual
recoil upon tne heads of tbe men who
deal it. It is the poor, not tbs rich who
will suffer by the scarcity of coal. The
rich tilled their cellars last tall and they
can laugh at a coal famine. If they
should happen to run short they could
leave the city until the trouble was over.
The poor must stay here and sufler—and
suffer greatly this bitter cold weather.
Coal has advanced from 10c. to 170. a
basket, and it means that many families
will have to get along with half their
usual allowance. Many factories have
shutdown because there was no coal to
run their engines, and thus thousands of
working people have been thrown out of
employment.
now this is going to help the cause of
the strikers is hard to understand. The
dealers make up for a short supply by
charging higher prices. The laboring
men lose their wages aud pay more for
their fuel.
Tenement house visitors report that
many women pass their time in bed in
order to save fuel, anil that pneumonia
and severe colds are niarminglv fre
quent. Ragged children swarm l he streets
picking up bits of coal and wood. Before
long it will be necessary to start coal
kitchens, or cases of ireezing to death
will become common.

Gentlemen —I am in receipt of your es

a lecture upon any subject you (I) may
select.” It will afford me great gratifica
tion to accede to your very flatter ng request.
As to ihdtsubject, I have frequently been
impressed with the strange phenomenon of
communities and whole nations being seized
with delusions, which have spread among
them like epidemics and very often resulted
in deplorable distress and misery to hu
manity.
1 thiak that a discourse,recounting some of
these mental and moral disorders, will be
neither uninteresting nor uuinstructive; and
with your concurrence, will select as my sub
ject of lecture “A Discourse Upon Popular
Delusions.”
As to the time of its delivery, any evening
you may name, alter the iapse of next week
fwhich I shall require for its preparation:
will suit me. at any place you may select.
I am, gentlemen, with the highest consid
eration, very respectfully, your obedient
servant, 8. Yates Levy.
You will have no use for spectacles if
you use Dr. J. H. McLean’s Strengthen

subdues inflammation, cools and soothes
tne irritated nerves, strengthens weak
and tailing sight. 25c a box. Goughs

PIANOS.
f'OR nearly twenty years have we repre
sented the Agency of these instru
ments. Hundreds have been sold to families
in this city. During all iliese years not a
single Instrument hag ever faded in the
slightest defect, but, on the contrary, tne
raoelflatterlng expressions in regard to their
fine tone, workmanship and durability have
been given by satolled purchasers. Improve
ments upon improvements have been added,
and during the pust few years these Pianof
have become regular standard instruments.
Their continued excellence has been so noted
that the Piano Trade lias quickly recoguucd
these facts, and in consequence thereof the
sale of t cm has lately been beyond the man
ufacturers most sanguine expectations. We
also have have noticed for some lime past the
improved qualities, and the sales here have
those of previous years. We have
given the GABLER Pianos a thorough and
complete trim, having te ted thorn both in
regard to tone, action, construction, durabili
ty and their qualities of remaining in tune
We unhesiiatingly recommend them in every
respect as first-class instruments, and
equal to many others at higher prices. A
