U. Mrs. Livingston had just returned
from a voyage to South Africa and
told the convention the great awak
ening that is taking place in that tar
off continent. Site said the large an-j
diences that greeted her were partly |
. ilue to llie fact that she was distant-,
‘ ly related to tlie great explorer Cen- j
| eral David Livingston, who consecrat
ed his life to darkest Africa, years ago,
'land partly to the novelty of hearing'
[ and seeing a woman speaer, lint also
because they were interested in the
1 great temperance reform which she
] represent!! and the fact that she was
a representative of a great country
1 that had adopted prohibition.

About six months ago Federal agents,
with State’s Attorney Theodore F.

This morning Federal agents Da

Washington came to this city, trac
ing 22 barrels of whisky saiii to have
been stolen from a distillery. State's
Attorney Brown procured for them a
; search warant from Police Justice R.
Lee Hutchins of this city and accom
panied them to the Wimert farm.
According to Slate’s Attorney
I Brown’s statement. Wimert admitted
I that until yesterday there had been
on his premises 14 barrels containing
j some liquid. He states that Wimert
says that some strangers with a
broken truck asked permission to leave
the barrels on his farm; that he con
sented. and that he and his son re
moved the bungs from the barrels one
| by one and found that they contained
only water, and that the same strang
ers came with a truck and removed
the barrels yesterday morning.
The officers today found 13 barrels
of cider containing sugar and raisins
and several barrels containing whis-
I ky. Sixten barrels of cider were emp
i tied on Hie ground. Four barrels con
taining liquor were confiscated and
| hauled in a truck to Baltimore.
Wimert was brought before Police
Justice Hutchins this afternoon and
gave bail in the sum of $2990 for his
appearance before Commissioner Sup
