Bar in a Chim? ney. The Tunnel. By Southern Assoomtod I'rosi. Columhia, S. C, February C.? Blick moonshiners who have (or yoara been makiug a study of inge? nious methods to evade the revenue law are not in it with thu South Carolina dispensary law evaders. To day a lair was unearthed right in the heart of Carolina's capital which was almost in tho bowels of the earth?a lair which rivals that of the North Caroliua moonshiners who dived through a rivor's waters to reach the mouth of their under? ground distillery. It was way down under the cellar of tho grocery store of Platt. Hook .V Shull, and the whole construction an underground tunnel, particularly tho manner of ooncealing the way of entranoo, was the ingenuity. About $1,300 worth of liquor was bagged, for between 300 and 400 gallons of good liquor wore found and confiscated. The search of the place was made by the liqnor constables and police. The owners of tho store refused to a'l)w the ollicers to go into the store, but opened np tho cellar. The building is a vory long ono, and thu cellar the ollicers were ushered into ran only uhout half way, At tho rear end was solid earlh. The of floors knew what they were doing, however, for they sent for shovols aud spades and began to dig into , the wall of earth. I After digging for about six foet thoir instruments struck air and they soon got into the rest of tho cellar. They went in and searched all round. Ou one side, next tho brick wall, was what appeared to bo the solid foundation of a large chim? ney running on up through the building. On this their attention centered, l'retty soon they began to cut into the brick and iu a short time gazed through aud by the flick? ering light of a candle thoy could see that the chimney wus a falso one that iuside a ladder ran upwards and there waa a neat little bar with all neuessariea inside. They cut the hole larger aud got inside. They could see tho bottom of an ingenious trap door in the floor abovo which could not be detected above as it waa oovered by shelving. But the liquor had not been found, aud tho real ingenuity of the hiding place was yet to be seen. The constables looked around the inside walls of the chimney aud towards tho outer walls they finally discovered a door about four feet high. They broke this down and stood at the mouth ot a long, dark tunnel, muniug back into the "bowels of the earth." A man could almost stand erect in the neatly constructed tuunel. Thou the ex? ploration of this tunnel began. The constables went ou and on until thoy Btruck a point where the tunnel dividod and branched iu op? posite directions and tho luiuor was iu sight. There was about forty feet of tnnneling, and the earth taken out of it had been used to make the false baek to the cellar. It took the constables several hours to get all the liquor stored iu the tun? nel out, and there was lots of it, in all tho constables estimate they got nearly -100 gallons, THE TROLLEY LICENSE.

Washington, February 7.?Nu vy Departmeut oQioials aro at a loss for an explanation of Admiral Beardloe's slow trip to Honolulu in the Philadelphia. Thoy coutidoutly expected him to reach the islauds on Saturday morning, January 26tli, but it uow appere that ho consumed oight days iu tho voyage, commenc? ing Suuday morning, January '21st. It is supposod tho ship had some delay at sea. Wheu sho went around to tho l'aoitio coast yuar before last she made a record that attraoted the attention of foreigu naval otlioerB, on account of her exoollout speed and long runs. Shu left Now York about July 1st, aud aftor a stop for coal at Hio preceded to Callao without auother stop. She loft Callao August 2(ith and reached Honolulu September 1Mb, steaming straight away 5,200 knots at a 12 knot speed per hour with an averuge expenditure of coal per day of -11.5 tons. This speed was secured with but two of her four boilers, aud it is not believed that she could havo need more than two boilers ua her roccut voyage, as sho burned over lifty tons por day iu making this speed, and it is olaiuiod tnat with forced draught aud a speed of 18 knots she could uot burn as much as 110 tons per day as reported. Tue ship was last (looked aud oleaned September 181b, aftor her return from Honolulu, aud she was, therefore not clean. Tho regula? tions provide that ships must be docked once in six mouths, as they are supposed to be badly fouled in that time. Tho Philadelphia, ou her recent run, had been over,; four months without docking aud was, presumably, in little condition for fast steaming. APPOMATTOX PARK.
