THE COBB VULCANITE FAILURE Another Bis Wilmington Firm "Gone Whore the Woodbine Xwlneth," ' The busine-s embarrassment of the'Cobb Vulcanite Wire Company has culminated In a failure. Judgments aggregating $100,000 have already been entered, aud more will follow The failure really took place on March 17. 1891, when judgment was entered by William Weigbtman of Philadelphia, a member of the firm of Powers & Weight mau Execution was issued ou March 31. 1891, and Sheriff Simmons will sell the plant on Tuesday, August 4. The company was organized during the month of August, 1888. H. B. Cobb, the inventor and patentee of the Vulcanite wire, secured a majority of the stock, ano to do this he secured a large loau from Weightman, giving a mortgage. He was elected president of the com pany. Despite the fact that the article sold well wherever it was introduced, the business was never successful. This was due, it is claimed, to the fact that Mr. Cobb did not have proper business qualifications. The creditors gave the company every opportunity, but were at length forced to take legal process to recover their money. The assets of the company com prise the patent right, the large mill property on the Brandywine east of Mar ket street, and the wire in stock. The Men 1. Brilliant Bine.

Officer Ayres accosted an Evening Journal reporter on East Eleventh street last evening aud iu a gentlemanly manner requested him to have a mis statement rect.iÇed. Yesterday this paper charged Officer Ayres with riding ou the merry-go-round at Ninth and Lombard streets. The accusation Is wrong so far as the name of the officer is concerned. The mistake occurred in this way : The reporter was at Ninth and Lombard streets and saw the officer on the merry go-ronad. Ha asked some young men the officer's name. They said his name was Massey. Not satisfied with this, t he reporter called up police headquarters next moruiing and asked what officer was on duty at Ninth and Lombard the night before. The answer was "Officer Ayres." Not wishing to do Officer Massey an Injustice the word of the officials was taken in preference to that of others. They were the cause of the error. John 1). Doagherty in Town. John B.

The Ul.tlllatluD of Fruit Brtnill« From Peninsula Appleti aud Feacitee Easton, July 17.—The immense fruit crop of the Peninsula this Jeer will give a big impetus to a branch of busluest that has languished for three years, and which last year was not operated to the smallest extent It is the distillation of fruit brandies from apples and peaches. There are about 10t5 registered stills on the Peninsula between the two bays Probably one halt of them are In Wicomico county, Md , and Sussex county. De'. More of them will be in operation this year than at any time within twenty years At no time re cently has the business been profitable, because lbs shortness of the apple and peach crops interfered with the brandy material This year the early snm m«r apple crop ie very heavy, and the distillers are quick to take advantage of the low prices to begin their work. H. C, Dodson, the deputy collector of internal revenue for the dlviaion comprising the eastern shores of Maryland aad Virginia, is busy already with the official work of bonding and starting the distillers. In Dorchester and Wicomico distillers began work ou the early summer apples a week ago. This is early for the di tilling season. Usually they do not begin work before August, and often not until September It is quite certain there are not fifty gal ions of home made fruit brandy in tba market on the Peninsula. and the output this year will find an empty market. Fruit brandy pays the United States government a tax of ninety cents a gal ion and the business on the government's part is so thoroughly systematized and hedged about with red tape forms that an escape from the payment of the tsx on » single gallon by any distiller is 1m possible, unless there is collasi.m between him and the government officer. Two deputy collectors and two gauger* have all this work to look after on the Penin sula, Their hands will be full this year. Oue deputy collector and one gauger has Delaware, and another pair the Maryland and Virginia teiritory from Cecil connty to Cobb's Island The deputy collector has to visit every distiller, survey and register his still and take his bond before he can start his fires Eleven papers have to be executed with unvarying formalUies before a fruit grower can be gin to liquefy his fruit without being a * moonehioer" and incurring heavy penalties. The distiller must keep a book of a form prescribed by the inter nal revenue department and enter in it daily the amount of fruit and kind he used te make the distilling material, where obtained,the hours th still worked, quantity and kind of material used in the still, the uumber of boilings and the pro duct in wine gallons Fresh juices of any kind, when first run through the still, produce what is technically known as "singlings." This product has to be redistilled, or "doubled up. ' business phrase is, to make the brandy. The deputy collector is obliged to visit every fruit distillery once a month, aud unless he visits many of them more fre quently the distiller's monthly reports will get him and the officer both in trouble with the department Some of the distillers cannot wiite, and their at tempt to keep their accounts on which the monthly reports are based are ludi crous,but very harrassiug to the internal revenue officer The gauger also makes monthly visits to each dlsillery, uros the product he finds on hand aud marks the measure on the cask contain ing it. It not infrequently happens with ignorant, but honest distillers that be t*een the brandy the ganger and the output for thenuntii as Shown by the distillera' monthly report there is a difference .sometimes pins sometimes minus,of from ten totiventy-fiva per cant. And although two gallons of singlings are required to make one gallon of brandy there are distillers' reports file which show that In a given mouth more brandy than singlings was produced ! these are the things which worry the souls of the deputy collector the long summer days and blight the life of the clerk in the collector's office in Baltimore who has to audit all these distillers' monthly reports aud make an abstract of them for the Washington office. It is probable that 20,000 gallons of apple and peach brandy will be made this year on the Peninsula, on which a tax o f $19,000 will be paid in the United Stales treasury. Under the internal revenue laws only the juices of apples, peaches and grapes are permitted to be distilled Recently, since tomatoes have been ued so largely In the country thrifty packers have desired to experiment in the stills with the tomato refuse, and some have made application to the Internal revenue department for special permis sion to distill tomato juios, but without avail, as the department can find no war To use any other ma teriai than what comes from peaches, apples and grapes in his still would sub jmt the d's 1 Iqt to heavy pen hies. Some years ago John N. Wright, of the upper part of Dorchester connty, one of the most thrifty farmers and intelligent distillers on the Peninsula, did get per mission to distill the liquid obtained from sassafras roots as an experiment. He succeeded In obtaining a beautiful and highly pungent oil which is used as the basis of the most of the flavoring ex tracts aud essences The distillation was a success, bnt the expense of the maceration of tba roots without proper machinery prevented the business from being profitable. M*. Wright believes that the business of distilling sassafras oil with proper machinery equipment could be very successfully conducted here,—Baltimore Sun. as the in- « • It : ds * I ; rant of law for it.
