How Two Girls Made
Moonshine Whisky
And. How They Got Into
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

registrar from issuing a certificate to
Dolan. The action was brought by J.

is no such thing as a proprietory right
to the name of a political party.

A Characteristic Letter to Montana
Portland, Or., Oct. 2. Governor
Pennoyer in a letter declining an invi
tation to fill an engagement of one
week for the PopuliBts in Montana,
said: "If the preeent ruinous depres
sion in business and Rvalues, resulting
directly from demonetization of silver,
and not in any tariff taxation or change
in such taxation, will not persuade the
people of Montana to vote against both
old political parties dominated by Wall
street and equally responsible for such
demonetization, then no persuasion of
mine would be availing, neither will
they be persuaded though one rose
from the dead."

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.
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. A narrow es
cape from what might have been a
terrible accident occurred at Hunt

40 miles an hour and an open switch

off and badly smashed up. A great
many of the passengers received a
severe shaking up but no one was fatal
ly hurt.

Two Federal Prisoners Make
Good Their Escape.
A Story That the Warden and the
Guards Were Poisoned and
That Others Are Free.
By the Associated Press.
Tacoma, Wash., Oct. 2. Two prison
ers escaped from the federal peniten
tiary on McNeil's Island last Thursday.
They were Wade and Brooks, both
serving terms for smuggling. Thurs
day they were ordered to carry some
garbage outside the prison walls.
When outside they made a sudden dive
for the brush and succeeded in success
fully escaping from Guard Jack Keat
ing. Wade was doing a five year term
and had once escaped. Marshal Drake
has men stationed at the boundary line
to capture the fugitives in case they at
tempt to cross into British Columbia.
It is thought that they may not yet
have left the island. Marshal Drake
denies the published story to the effect
that four men had escaped after poison
ing the warden and all the guards. A
resident of the island says the poison
ing occurred later in the week and was
partially successful, allowing two other
prisoners to escape. Some think an in
vestigation of the penitentiary manage
ment will result.

Will Simpson's Name Go? -Topeka,
Kan., Oct. 2. The Democra
tic convention of the Seventh district ,
decided by resolution to make do
nomination. Wednesday, two month
later, the district committee met and
indorsed Jerry Simpson, the Populist
nominee. This is not satisfactory to
the stalwart Democrats and Chairman
Richardson of the state committee, has
decided that Simpson's name may not
be certified to the secretary of state as
the Democratic nominee, and it will
thus not appear on the regular Demo
cratic ticket, unless the courts decide to
the contrary. Richardson holds that
when the convention decreed that no
nomination should be made, that ended
the matter, and the committee has no
right to act.
