Within the next few days three of the most important corporations doing business in the west will announce their determination to give up their corporation rights In New Jersey and reincorporate in Maine.

A corporation lawyer In full touch with corporate law said that while tne New Jersey laws had been thoroughly tested and tried, and in many respects favored consolidations more than the laws of Maine, still corporations, fol lowing out the policy of economy, foun.l it to their advantage to transfer th'Mi headquarters to the New Engl.uiu state. The New Jersey tax is one-tenth of 1 per cent on the stock issued and out standing up to $3,000,000. one-twentieth uf 1 per cent from $3,000,000 up to ;., 000.000. and $50 additional on every $1.- OOO.Oih) in excess of the maximum figure mentioned.

LADY MOONSHINER Engaged in Extensive Op erations in Philadelphia She Wanted to Raise Money in Order to Send Her Boys to College She Was Mailing Five Barrels a Day. Philadelphia. June 7. enhance dis pelled the rnstery whiih for a long time had invested the house, 2660 KrunkTord avenue, and on Satuiday night led to the finding of an illicit whisky distilling plant. A woman "moonshiner." who plead ed ihat she v. as indi ceil to defraud the government by a de: ire to obtain mon ey with which to educate her sons, was arrested. Mrs. Sarah Gershc nfc Id, who con fessed that she hail operated the still, was held in JS00 bail yesterday by United States Commissi, n-r Bell. The internal revenue men have had her un- dor surveillance for two years, they say. The plant is one. of tl:e most elabor ate that has been seized in this city. Its capacity was five barrels of whis ky a day. and there is reason for be lieving that it has been run to the limit for a long time. Cunning meas ures were devised to keep the exister.ee of the distillery secret. . There is much conjecture in the relghborhool as to the operations that were carried on. The first floor osten sibly" was used ns a store for the com pounding of plaster of paris and plue. On the oulslle- was a . sign, reading: "M. Smith. Manufaetni er of riastcr Paris and Glue." Boxes, barrels, paper bags, a set of scales and ether articles were scat tered Hbout the store. The persons li. charge of the store kept to themselves, and caused it to bo inferred among the neighbors that the entire building was given up to the compounding of plaster and glue. When the police and the firemen wore tailed to the house on Saturday night to extinguish a small fire. Lieut enant McGarry of the Trenton avenue and Dauphin street Ftation. vainlv "s- payed to forte an entrance into the third story. He became suspicions, and set Policeman Scanlan to watch the premises. After the firemen had lett Scanlan Fittl?d down for a long wait. He was disappointed, for within a few minutes a woman whose features were hidden by the folds a heavy veil entered' the house and started upstairs. Scanlan accosted her. She turned and ran into the street. The police man caught her and took her to the station house. There she said she was Mrs. Sarah Gershenfeld and gave as her address the house in Frankford avenue. The police afterwards found that she lived at 111 Naudain street, McGarry concluded that he was justi fied in breaking open the doors leading into the third-story rooms. Inside the searchers found the distilling plant. James H. Wilkes, chief deputy collec tor of internal revenue, was notified. He and his men looked over the find. What they saw astonished them. Be sides the plant there were thirty bar rels of mash, flftesn large bags of su gar and 200 gallons of whisky. The whisky was high proof and nearly twice tho strength of the ordinary ar ticle of commerce. There were chemicals in the place which were used to neutralize the od ors that aecompanied'the distilling pro cess, and render them imperceptible. The waste fluids from the still, were emptied Into an underground drain. Deputy Wilkes told Commissioner Boll, at Mrs. Gershenfeld's hearing, that he and his subordinates had been watching her for a long time. She then l.ved over a, furniture store in Cathar ine street. A false clue led the revenue men to search the Naudain street huso a half a year ago. but they were not rewarded by discovering any evi dences th.it Mrs. Grshenfeld was a "moonshiner." "I have been running the still so that I could earn enough money to send my two hoys to college." said Mrs. Gersh enfold. KILLED DEATH WATCH Condetnmed Murderer and Made His Escape. Anaconda.
