George Kirke, a white man of DeKalb county, who was convicted in the United States court here a couple of years back for Illicit distilling in the northern part of the state, and was given a sentence in the King's county penitentiary at Brooklyn, N. Y.. served out his time on Saturday. He was not given his liberty, however, for jt w'as ascertained that he was an escape from a farm in Georgia, where he was serv ing a life-time sentence for the murder of a negro. An officer from Georgia was at the penitentiary in New York when Kirke had finished his sentence for the violation of the revenue laws in this state and he was turn ed over to him. The necessary papers wrere bad for his removal from New York state to Georgia, and the officer left with his prison er at once, arriving in Georgia on Monday. Kirke is well known by the officers and many citizens of DeKalb county, Alabama. He fs now' quite an old man. It w’as in 1884 that Kirke was sentenced to the penitentiary in Georgia for life for killing a negro. He protested his innocence I of the crime, but there was strong circum stantial evidence against him and he was given the lift? sentence. It was considered by many as a compromise. Kirke only served about two years w'hen he escaped ami went direct to Sand mountain, in De Kalb county. He had nothing to do, ac cording to his own story, and took up with a number of the denizens of the fast moun tain regions and went to whisky making. He watt reported by some of his fellow’s and .he officers made a raid on his outfit and captured him. He was brought to Birming ham and given a trial and sentenced to a term in King’s county penitentiary. While in the federal prison in New York be made a confidant of a fellow prisoner nnd told him of his escape from the Georgia farm. For the second time his friends gave him .away and word was sent to the Georgia authorities, and they took advantage of the informaiton, secured the proper papers, and w'hen lie w’as told that .his sentence for the government was over an officer from Georgia was present and put him under ar rest again for the escape. He had nothing to do but to take the arrest quietly, and on the first train south the officer and his pris oner came. . Kirke is now In the penitentiary in Geor gia. It is not likely that he will make his escape again. IIo is getting old and his hair turning gray. I carry the largest stock of fine whiskies in the State.

Philadelphia, Dec. 17.—Riot and de struction marked the opening day of the great strike of the street car employes of the Union Traction company. Aided by the mischievous, lawless element, the strikers succeeded in completely tieing up the lines of the Union Traction com pany, and tonight, with the exception of the one line not controlled by the com pany involved in the strike, not a street car wheel is turning in Philadelphia. Never In the history of the city has therd been witnessed such widespread scenes of disorder as were enacted tonight.

Great Britain to submit the boundary dispute to impartial arbitration and hav ing been apprised of the refusal of Great Britain, he very promptly suggests that congress make an appropriation to pay the expenses of a commission to be ap pointed by the executive to make the necessary investigation and report with out delay as regards the boundary dis pute. I admire the firm and positive course taken by the president and I be lieve the house of representatives will support him in his efforts to uphold the Monroe doctrine and prevent Great Brit ain from making illegal encroachments on the territory of Venezuela. Ex-Speaker Crisp speaking of the mes sage said: ‘‘I am very much pleased with it. It is real American doctrine.” Mr. Wheeler, democrat, of Alabama— It is a very able, frank, patriotic and statesmanlike paper; one which will be approved by the country. 1 Mr. Chilton, democrat, of Texas—It is i an able and timely declaration of the true American principle. ; Senator Pugh, democrat, of Alabama— On this matter democrats and republi cans come together with one accord. I am for war and free coinage. The mes sage certainly^indicates that there will be war unless England backs down. Mr. Tillman, democrat, of South Caro lina—I do not believe there will be any war. I do not think the United States ought to go to war with the other great est English speaking people on the earth. _ The London Times on the Message. London, Dec, 17.—Commenting upon President Cleveland’s message, the Times tomorrow will say: “It is impossible to disguise the gravity of the differences that have arisen be tween this country and the United States. The message that President Cleveland transmitted to congress and the reception It met from both sides in the senate give additional importance to the dispatches that have passed the state department at Washington and the foreign office. The details of the bounda ry dispute with Venezuela are insignifi cant in comparison with the far-reaching claim put forward in Mr. Olney's dis patch and emphasized in Mr. Cleveland's message. “Convinced as we are that a rupture between the two great English speaking communities would be a calamity not only to themselves, but to the civilized world, we are nevertheless driven to the conclusion that the concessions that this country is Imperiously summoned to make are such as no self-respecting na tion—and, least of all, one ruling an em pire that has roots in every quarter of the globe—could possibly submit to. “We are bound to resist the claims which the Monroe doctrine has for the first time been extended to cover, and to which Mr. Olney has added comments and Inferences against which an emphat ic protest must be made.” The Times refers to the cool assump tion based upon a distance of ,3000 miles and continues: “A power which has command of the -sea does not regard the 3000 miles of in tervening ocean as severing it from its subjects. The American tradition will not he strengthened by Mr. Olney's claim of moral superiority on the ground that self-government is only enjoyed by re publics. We think we have something like self-government, even though we have not yet developed a Tammany Hall, and we are vain enough to believe that liberty is more real and healthy In Great Britain than in Venezuela. These un necessary aggressive assertions seem to point to'the possibility that this sudden movement on the part of the United States has more to do with party politics than with diplomacy. “Much may ne paraoneu in view me approaching election, which, to a large extent, explains the union of the republi cans and democrats in raising a jingo cry It is to be remembered, moreover, that a good deal of time must elapse be fore a commission can be appointed, and that it will be a still longer time be fore It can report. It may not come into existence, Indeed, until the executive has passed into other hands. In the meanwhile the sober common sense of the American people, we should hope, will condemn the attempt to pick a quar rel with a friendly power. In any case our own course Is clear. We must stand firmly and calmly upon our rights as an Independent state and, if necessary, take practical measures to assert them. It may even be expedient to settle the fron tier question by drawing a line of our own Of course there can he no thought of anything Ipss than the Sehombourg line allowing the I'nlted States and Ven ezuela to deal with matters as they may.” __ 2020-FIRST AVENUE-2020 Harry Mercer’s Christmas gifts in watches, jewelry, etc., are great.
