Betrayed Into the Clutches Of The Law By Rivals. The Other Firm Composed of Men Who Were Jealous of the Success of Their Female Rivals. By the Associated Prefs. Louisville, Ky., Oct. 2, Among a batch of moonshine prisoners that were brought to the county jail laBt evening by Capt. Ponch were two women from the mountains. They were Tennessee Eden and Pauline Whitt. The former is the eld est of three children that her father left her mother to support when he died a year ago. He lived in Breathitt coun ty, and owned besides a small and thor oughly unproductive mountain labora tory, or, according to the legal way of putting it, a moonshine still. When he was laid away Tennessee took np the business and went to making whisky to support her mother and brother and sister. She suc ceeded very well and hired Pauline Whitt to sell the whisky. In the neighborhood there was a rival still run by Bob Link, Preeton Gilly and Henry Buckner. The latter were jealous of the success of the female concern, and they laid a scheme to have it raided by the officers. They notified Captain Punch, and when he went out to raid the itill of the girls he raided that of the men as well, and they were all brought to the jail together. Neither of the girls la over eighteen years of age and they are not of comely appearance, to out it mildly. They ad mit their guilt and say they will try and get light sentences. They will testify against the men, though, for be traying them and endeavor to get them as long sentences as possible. The only regret of Tennessee was that her mother and brother and sister would be deprived of a means of livelihood while she was in the jail. She said if they had only broken up the still and left her liberty she might have worked on the farm this winter and kept them in something to eat. Her mother is ill and the other children are too little to do anything NOT A TRADE MARK. Any One May Call Himself a Populist. That Is a Judicial Decision Handed Down by Judge Seawellin San Kranclsco.

CARGO OF WHEAT. Sending That Cereal From the Pa cific to the Atlantic. Portland, Or., Oct. 2. The ship. Reaper, is loading wheat at Victoria dock for New York. This vessel was the first chartered to carry barley from this port for the Atlantic coast and she was likewise the first to make a similar voyage with wheat. Much speculation has been indulged in as to why this cereal is teing shipped to New York where it can only be sold at a loss. The reason can be attributed to the big fire of Sept. 22, when the Pacific coast elevator and its contents were burned. The Repear was chartered by the elevator company to take barley to New York and the grain with which she was to be loaded waB in store at the elevator. This was destroyed and as the ship's charter would not allow her to wait until another cargo of barley iB accumulated she took a cargo of wheat. It is possible that there is not an other cargo of barley in this country as the ship, Iroquois, which has a similar charter to the Reapef, will also load wheat for the Atlantic sea board. MR. JENISON'S DAM. It Solves the Problem of a Canal Be tween Duluth and Minneapolis. Duluth, Minn., Oct. 2. President Jenison, of the Altomonte Water com pany, which proposes to furnish water power from a dam in the St. Croix river above Cloquet, is in town. He now has five engineering crews out, and in the past two weeks they have surveyed over 40 miles. He feels very good over results and says that with five miles of ditch-digging he can bring water into Duluth from almost 35 miles away. Mr. Jenison has discussed what may prove to be a solution of the problem for a ship canal between Lake Superior and the Twin Cities. When his 80-foot dam is built, the water will back up in to the east Savanna river to within six miles of the Mississippi. By puting his dam six feet higher, the water will flow from the St. Louis over into the Missis sippi. He says it would be an easy thing to cut a ditch between the Sa vanna and Mississippi, to give a good depth of water for vessels. An Open Switch. Delane, Cal., Oct. 2.
