PASSED BY THE HOUSF.
THE INCOME TAX GOES THROUGH
AS AN AMENDMENT
TotheTar;ft B'l1-Many Amendmcta to
tbe Internal Revenue Eifi--General De
base Closed Yesterday.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 30.-The House
very promptly went into committee of
the whole to consider the tariff bill this
morning on motion of Richardson of
Tennessee, having dispensed with the
call of committees for reports.
The consideration of the income tax
bill was resumed and Covert (Dam.) of
New York, took up the thread of his
argument against it. He declared that
the bili was ex remely sectional in its
provisions and would bear with par
ticular severei-v on the North and
East.
Cox (Dem.) of Tennessee, spoke ia
defense of the in-om; tax.
Bartle" (Dem.) of New Ycrk, in de
nouncing tMe b.il, sa'd it was proposea
by a braich of the Democratic party
which affiliated with tne Populist par
ty and demanded the free coinage of
both gold and silver at the present ra
tio.
Lafe Pence, the Populist member
from Colorado, delivered a stirring and
ringing speech in favor of the income
tax. The preceding speaker had char
acterized the bill as a Populist maas
ure. He admitted that in the Omaha
convention the Populist party had de
clared tor a graduated income tax, and
in line with that platform he proposed
to offer an amendment to that end
when the bill was up for amendment.
He favored a graded tax, beginning
with 1 per cent. on incomes of 82.500
and running uD to 5 per cent. on in
comes of $100,000 or more.
Pendleton of West Virginia, deliv
ered an earnest appeal in the interest
of harmony in the Democratic party.
It had been ciaimed on the other side
of the House that there was defection
in the ranks of the West Virginia del
egation, but he positively affirmed that
while the Wilson bill bore somewhat
heavily on the products of his State, all
the representatives of West Virginia,
as well as of Virginia, would stand
shoulder to shoulder in support of the
Wilson bill. And as those States had
swallowed the free lumber, free coal
and free iron pills, the New York
Democrats shoula swallow the income
tax medicine and help the bill through
Its final passage. He predicted that
when the time came for a final vote,
not-a single Southern Democrat would
be found lurking in the camp of the
enemy. (Democratic applause.)
- Johnson of Ohio, devoted himself to
an elaboration of his free trade and
singletax theories, the latter present
tng, he said, the only solution to the
labor question. He would vote for the
income tax, but be should do it under
protest and as the lesser of the two
evils.
Simpson (Pop.) of Kansas, said that
the income tax had been sneered at as
a Populist measure, but while the mem
bers of that party on the floor were
few and were despised on the Demo
cratic side and despised on the Repub
lican side, he predicted that sooner
or later,, the time would come when
the doctrtflor the Populists would te
advocated, because they were right.
In conclusion he announced that he
was in favor of an income tax first,
last and all the time, whether it was a
Populistlc, Democratic or Republican
measure. (Democratic applause.)
Cockran (Dem.) of New York, an op
ponent of the income tax, was recog
nized. in anticipation of hearing
Cockran, crowds of people flocked to
the House and the galleries were filled.
Cockran's objections to an Income
tax were many and varied. It would
be class taxation, and as such a blow
at the fundamental principle on which
the government was founded. It
would be inquisitotial, and hence ini
quitous. He believed rich men fav
it, because they would thereby ulti
mately gain a larger control of the
government than they enjoyed today.
Hquoteod Democratic authority
against the proposed tax, and among
others said Alex. H. btepieus, oi Geor
gia, declared an internal revenue tax
indefensible in this country.
A member: Any kind of revenue
tax?
Cockran: Any kind.
'McMillin: Dces the gestleman from
New York advocate now and here the
repeal of all internal revenue taxes ?
Cockran: if that proposition were
before the House I would not hesitate
to say yesnt a moment. (Demo
cratic applause.) 1 would be glad to
see every gauger and internal revenue
collector in the .owrftry turned out of
cgice. I have always believedi that
the duty of thiis peopM is to sdpport i s
government by s tariff levied for reve
nue only. On that position I tave
stood on this floor, and I continue to
stand. I have yet to discover the man
-a son of Georgia-who Is going to
declare that the teaching of Alexander
H. Stephens is heresy. What gentle
man is going to declare that we have
outlived the leadership of Bayard,
Thurman and Jefferson ? Are we to
have new leaders in the persons of the
gentleman from Tennessee (McMillin),
the gentleman from Illinois (Fithian)
and the ge..tlema4n Irom Georgia (LiV
ingston)? Are these to be our new
apostles? Are we to go before the peis
pie and say: "Behold our progres-o
dee how the Democratic party has
grown" (Laughter and applause.)
Are we to have a new gospel preache'd
and to say that we have imbibed other
doctrines from the hights or the Dem
ocratic part y? I jgotest against that
treason. I ask no privileges for any
class. I object to them all. I demand
for every citizen of the country equali
ty before the law. As I believe in
equality of salvation and in the love of
the Heavenly Father, so I stand here
now for one policy, one country, one
law, one God, one Democratte faitn,
one general prosperity for all the peo
ple, without distinction of class, of
wealtb, of race. (Loud and general ap
plause, which was twice repeated.)
When order was restored, Bryan
(Dem.) of 'Nebraska, rose to reply. He
complimented the eloquence cof Coch
ran, but said that the David pebbles of
truth would be more effective than the
Golath javelin of error. Continuing,
he said: The objections urged against
the income tax are more numerous
than weighty. Some have denied the
constitutionality of the income tax,but
the Supreme Court had settled the
question beyond controversy in the
prnger case. A very lew have de
nied the justice of an income tax. The
principle is endorsed by nearly all
writers on political economy and com
mends itself to every unprejudiced
mind. A New York paper contained
a few days ago, a sketch of the richest
woman In the United States with pro
perty worth $60,000,000 and an income
of probably more than $3,000,000. She
lives in a cheap boarding house and
brings her living expenses within $500
or $600. Who will say that it is just
that she should pay the same amount
of tax te support the federal govern
ment that is paid by a family with an
income of $500 or $600. While this is
an extreme case, it is nevertheless true
that a tax upon consumption bears
- muh more havmiy upon the poor than
upon the rich in proportion to their
means.
The main objection which has been
urged against this bill is that it is in
expedient. It is accused of being in
quisitorial, but it is no more so than
customs taxes, internal revenue taxes
and State taxes. The personal prop
erty taxes collected in nearly all the
States are far more inquisitorial than
the income tax. It is said that it in
vites perjury, This government has
too much important business on hand
to lose time looking after the morals
of men whose veracity is not worth
two cents on the dol!ar. The fact that
some may escape the tax is no objec
tion to tne law. It is objected tnat
this tax will endanger the tariff bill.
I am not afraid that any Democratic
member will refuse to relieve the com
mon people of the heavy burdens
placed upon them by the McKinley
bill for fear he will impose a light bur
den by means of an income tax upon
those who are amply able&o bear it.
The close of Bryan's speech was the
signal for vociferous applause, cries of
"vote, vote" and cheering. Im.nedi
ately alter. without waiting f3r the
hour of 5:30 to come, the committee
rose and the House took a recess until
8 o'clock tonight.
THE LAST DAY.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 31.-This was
the last day of general debate on the
tariff bill. It opened in the House with
a fair attendance in the galleries and
rather a slim attendance. on the floor.
After the committees being called for
reports, the House went into a com
mittee of the whole to consider the
tariff bill.
Tate, of Georgia, offered the first
amendment to the internal revenue
bill. It proposes to strike out the last
three sections of the bill which in
cludes a tax of $1 a gallon on distilled
spirits, and also the clauses referring
to bonding of distilled spirits and their
withdrawal from warehouses. This
would leave the existing law as to spir
its in force.
Outhwaite offered the following
amendment: That on and after the
passage of this act there shall be levied
and collected a tax on all distilled spir
its produced in the United States on
which a tax is not paid before that
day, per proof gallon, or wine, when
below proof, 90 cents if paid within
five days atter date ef distillation or
entry into bond; S1 if paid after five
days and within one year, $1.10 if paid
after one year and within two years,
61.20 if paid after two years and with
in three years, and $1.30 if paid after
four years.
Oath waite's substitute for the whis
key sections of :he revenue bill was de
feated-yeas 42, nays 7.
Bland offered a substitute to permit
distillers at the expiration of the bond
ed period to pay into the Treasury the
cost of exportation and importation of
liquor under the present regulations,
the product to remain in this country.
This was defeated without opposition.
Dingley, (Rep.) of Maine, offered an
amendment striking out of the original
text of the bill the figure 6 where they
occurred,- as the time for regauging,
and insert the figure 3 in each case.
This would leave the law practically as
it exists at present.
Dingley's amendment was carried
81 yeas to 75 nays. Tellers were asked
foraMdnd''this'Yotrthe amendment
was again carried-105 in the affirma
tive and 86 in the negative. This is the
first and only amendment, which the
Republicans have succeeded in Incor
porating in the bill. The amendment
offered by Tate, striking ont the last
three sections of the bill, thus leav.ing
the law as to spirits as at present, as
amended by Dingley's amendment, was
voted on, after the chairman had, with
some difficulty,made the question clear
to the House. It appeared that should
the amendment be adopted it would
leave the period of bond at three years
while raising a tax from 90 cents to
$1. The amendment was lost.
A rumber of amendments were rap
idly offered, some in the nature of sub
stitutes, and a bad parliamentary tan
gle resulted. When this was straight
ened out only one of the amendments
had gone through to adoption--extend
ing the operations of the law to the dis
tilled spirits in bond at the time the
law should go into effect.
Tucker, of Virginia, offered, an
amendment to the income tax section
of the bill, excluding from its opera
tion charitable institutions aned corpo
rations and organizations doing busi
ness in the States not for profit. The
amendment was agreed to.
Whiting, Democrat, of Michigan, of
fered one amendment to the wine
schedule of the tariff bill proper, fixing
the duty on stilled wines at 30 cents
per gallon when below 14 per cent. al
cobol and at 50 cents when above. Also
exempting the bottles or jugs from
duty. Agreed to.
Blynurm, Damoeret, of Indiana, offer
ed a committee amendment deducting
from the calculated income of farm
ers and stock raisers the amount ex
pended in the purchase or production
of such product or production, which
was agreed to.
Springer, Democrat, of Illinois,offer
ed an amendment provlding that inhe
ritances of property should be subject
ed to the provisions of the income tax.
Bynumn, Democrat, of Indiana, offer
ed an amendment to this amendment
including in the enumeration of in
comes every thing received by gift, de
vised or irheritance. After some dis
cussion both amendmehts were adopt
ed.
Among the flood of amendments that
failed ot adoption was one offered by
Maguire of ualifornia, striking out all
the provisions of the bill relating to
t axes on incomes, and in lien thereof
providing for a direct tax of $31,311,
125 of apportionment among the States
and alsa for a direct tax on land val
ues.
The following were the only mem
bers who voted for it: Johnson of
Onio. Maguire, of California, Warner,
of New York, Harter of Ohio, and
Simpson of Kansas. The internal rev
enue bill was then agreed to as an
amendment to the tariff bill by a vote
of 173 to 56.
Among the Repubiicans who voted
in favor of the amendment were White
of 0O.1o, Bowers of California, Taylor
of Tennessee, Bartholdt of Missourl
and Bundy of Ohio. Tne entire New
Y ork delgation voted solidly against
it. Great cheering and applause greet
ed the result. Wilson of West Virgin
ia then offered an amendment to in
crease the tariff on barley from 20 per
cent. to 25 per cent., and on barley
malt from 30 per cent. to 35 per cent.
Several amendments were offered to
Wilson's amenament, and the filibus
tering which was started late last Sat
urday afternoon on the same question,
was renewed. The opponents of a
higher duty on barley were able to
filibuster away the ten or fifteen min
utes wnich remained before the recess.
Wilson finally moved that debate be
closed, and a vote was finally taken on
this last motion, but although the Re
publicans and some of the Democrats
rushed to get between the tellers, the
hour of 5.30 arrived before a quorum
had voted, and the House went into re
cess, and the barley schedule again
went over.
Mr. Talbiert of South Carolina was
one of the speakers at the evening ses
ion ldst night, but the reporters acci-.
dentally omitted to state the fact. Tal
bert made an earnest appeal to the
committee to vote for the income tax
amendment, his remarks, though brief,
were strong and forcible. He was for
the masses, as against the classes.
De a'h Through a K s e.
SUSQUEHANNA, Pa., Jan. 30.-An
affectionate kiss, imprinted upon the
rosy cheek of a beautiful flaxen hared
grandchild, has suddenly terminated the
festivities of a golden wedding. The
aged grandfather is no more, and his
widow, overcome with grief, is not likc
ly to recover.
It was a joyous company of younz,
middle aged and aged people who con
gregated at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Samuel Larkin on Thursday. They
met in honor of the fiftieth wedding an
niversary of their host and hostess, who
nad passed their allottetI three-score
years and ten, and were still in the en
jo., ment of perfect health.
Several sweet faced, laughing grand
children were present to contribute
their sharp. of sunshine to the occasiou.
Little 5-year-old Mary Edwards, with
her bright blue eyes and light tresses,
was there. After kissing her grand
mother affectionately, she sprang up in
her grandfather'.s .lap, exclaiming,
."Grandpa. I have lots of kisses and a
bear hug for you."
Then the old man pressed the sweet
face of his favorite grandchild to his,
fervently remarking: "God bless you,
Mary; no company would be complete
without you; you are the embodiment
of sunshine itself, and I trust 5ou wil
grow to be a noble woman."
',Tell me how much you love me,
granpa," said the child, "and then I
will give you the kiEses and the bear
hug."
"I cannot tell you how much I love
you, child" answered the old man, "but
I can assure you it is a big lot."
Then Grandfather Larkin imprinted
kiss after kiss upon the ruby cheeks,
and the child, delighted at the manifesta
tion of affeetion, returned the compli
meat, and throwing her little arms about
the old man's neck, gave. the promised
"bear hu4." She then crawled down
from Grandpa's lap. and busied herself
for a time among the others of the com
pany. An hour later, and just before
the joyous party were about to partake
of dinner, the same little Mary ap
proached her grandfather, remarking:
"Grandpa. I want to give you one
more kiss before dinner, and then I
want you to sit by me at the table."
The old man smiled and lifted the lit
tle girl in his arms. Tvro minutes la
ter he felt a tickling sensation in his
throat, and realized that in returnine
the last kiss a hair had caught in his
mouth and been sucked into his wind
pipe.
This immediately produced bard fits
of coughing an'd before relief could be ob
tained a blood, vessel was ruptured, and
death resulted instantly. Consternation
reigned for a time, and the aged part
ner of the unfortunate septuagenarian,
overcome with grief, fell in a swoon.
She rallied an hour later, but it is thought
her great grief will cause her death in a
short time.

ELLAYILLE, Ga., Jan. 31.-The shock
to the people of .Ellaville was great
when it was announced on Monday
morning that the Planters Bank had
been burglarized and robbed of all its
money, but it was nothing in comparis
on to the eiect upon them when it was
generally known at i o'clock yesterday
afternoon that Cashier J. E. Clark, who
was esteemed so highly by all the peo
ple,was most probably the perpetrator
of the crime. Early this morning, he
went to the nearest drug store and pro
cnred talf an cunce of laudanum, pre
tendinthat he wanted it for toothache
which he swallowed as soon as he re
ached his room. He was shortly af
terward intervewed by three prominent
bank officials, to whom he confessed
that he had taken the money, and that
the laudanum was taken with suicidal
Intent. An emetic was at once admin
istered and the poison promptly expell
d. Detective Jones from Atlanta, has
been here for the past t wo days work
Ing the case up, and within less than
four hours arter he arrived, he point
ed out Cashier Clark as the robber of
the bank.
About 10 o'clock yesterday morning
a bag of silver was found among a pile
of rubbish in the back part of the tank
building and showed no sigus of hav
ing been burned by any kind of ex
plosive. The six steel plugs which pro
ject into the soilid wall of the safe when
fastened were uninjured,norwas the safe
armed in any respect except that the
:oor was blown from its hinges. These
facts led to the conclusion that Casher
Cark had removed the money, 6lled the
powder, placed his fuse in position
losed but not fastened the door an d
then applied the match, which con
lusions are thought to be true by Clark
onfessing. The holes drilled into the
oter door of the vault and into the
safe door were put there as a blind. Tne
ools used were found at Clark's direc
tion in the bottom of an old well neer
he depot. Something o ver $4,000 has
been fuunn $3,600 of which was in
lark's pocket and trunk. Speculation
in cotton futures, Clara claims caused
im to ruake way withabout $3,500 and

the injunction be made perpetuai.

DEMOCRACY'S DAY.!
AFTER MANY YEARS THE PEOPLE
HAVE THEIR WILL
The W.Iion &1l PAssed-1 is Carrted by
a Vote of 204 te 140-Lobbies and Gal

Fioor.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 1.-As the
Lour fr the meeting of tie House ap
proached to-day, the galleries. were
crowded to the doors, the aisles were
used as seats, the doors oresented the
appearance of living pyramids, and.
back of them was a solid mass -of.-hu
manity, hoping against hope that they
might some time get within seeing and
hearing distance of the closing of the
great tariff debate. The elevators ran
to the gailery floor heavily laden with
human freight, but no one was able
to get exit from them thrbugh the liv
ing wall of strugghng, pushing men and
women that were packed solidly to the
elevator f ence. Even the members of
the press were, in many cases, unable to
gain access to the gallery lobby reserved
for them, and as there was no possibih
ty of getting up by way of the elevators,
the only way by which they could make
any headway at all was by going up the
stairway and fighting their way through
the crowd by brute force.
The scene on the floor of the House
was inst as exciting as m the galleries,
and there was an air of eager expectancy
on the faces of the members as they
moved about the floor and gathered in
knots to discuss the all-important ques
tion of the day. The Speaker's table
was oranamented with a magnificient
bunch ot long stemmed Mai echal Neil
roses.
Immediately ater the reading of yes
terday's journal, Lockwood (Dem.) of
Ne w York, made the point of no quo
rum, and the roll was called, disclos
ing the presence of 221 members. - Dar
incg the progress of the call the House
was several times disturbed by noise
in the gallery, until haally the Speak
er had to order the roll call suspended
while he admonished the galleries to
preserve order, and directed the door
keepers to clear the spaces about the
doors. In pursuance of this order a
policeman entered the public gallery
directly opposite the Speaker and be
hind the big clock, but fr some time
was unable to get the crowd out or to
get out himself. Finally, after a noisy
struggle, he manged to escape himself,
leaving the crowd In possession.
The House then we2t into committee
of the whole, and took up the question
pending when the House adjourned
yesterday, Wilson's motion to close de
bate on the barley amendment, and
the House divided. Wilson and War
ner (Dem.) of New York then took
their places as tellers, and the motion
was agreed to-179 in the affirmative
and nj ne in negative. *
The question then recurred on the
-amendments to the barley schedule
offered-late yesterday afternoon. These
were, an amendment by Wilson, raising
the duty on barley from 20 per cent. to
25 -per cent., and on barley malt from
25 per cent. to 30 per cent., and several
other amendments amending Wilson's
amendment. More were added, which
were defeated as fast as votes could be
taken. The House was dividing upon
one of them when the hour of 12 arryled,
and, in accordance with the special or
det, the committee rose, and the chair
man, (Richardson of Tennessee,) re
por ted to the Speaker that the.House had
had under consideration House Bill 4,
864, to reduce taxation and had adopted
several ame'idments. The Speaker then
announced that under the special order
three hours would be allowed for de
bate.
By this tima the jam ina the corridors
had become so great that progress
through them was difficult and well
nigh impossible. The diplomatic and
executive galleries filled up under the
pressure for- seats by others than those
for whom' they are generally reserved,
and the demands upon Speaker Crisp by
members for the admission ot their wives
and daughters well-nigh drove him fran
tic
Finally by tacit consent, the floor was
oened to the visitors, and they took
thieir places in the lobby be
hind in the hall back to the sides of
ihe chamber in the gallery, there was
banked a mass of humanity utterly un
*bs to move and almost unable to
oreathe. Comfortable respiration was
a impossibdity.
The Speaker. recognised Reed, (Rep.)
f Maine. This was the signal for a
spontaneous outburst of applause, which
he Speaker made an edsort to check.
Cheers and applause rang out over the
alleries, which continued ior some time.
Few speakers in the House have ever
ad a grander audience hanging upon
~her words. There was not a vacant
pace to be seen in the House, and here
mnd there throughout the hail were seen
>its of color iniicating the presence of
adies. Several members 01 the Senate
ame over to witness the scenes in the
TIower House, while among the dis
inuished visitors in the galleries was
ardinal IGibbons, easily recogdeed by
a flammne red skull cap and neck-cloth;
ad on the floor was Bishop Newman.
speeches were made by Reed, the
Speaker and Wilson, the author cf the
Ill, wno closed the deba'e.
At the conclusion of Mr. Wilson's
sp:-ech, there was enacted a scene of
will enthusiasm, such as has never be
fore been writnessed in the House with
n the memory of the oldest member.
The applause which broke out at fre
;qaent intervals during the speech over
i-aped all 'ounds when Wilson tried to
ake his seat. Cheer after cheer rang
>tut again and again, men threw their
ats and papers in the air and women
waved their handkerchiefs; Brecken
ridge of Arkansas embraced the
speaker and a crowd of demonstrative
admirers headed by Bryan of Nebras
k a and Tucker of VirgInia, raised WiI
sn on their shoulders and carried him
in ariumph out of the ball and to his
:ommittec room.
Amid the din and confusion of the
Iouse, the Speaker announced -that de
bate was closed and that, pursuant to
the special order, the House would
vote upon the amendments. Pending
this, Mr. Burrows called attention to
the fact that the House could not
transact any business while the House
was in such an uproar, and he as~ed
that the floor be cleared. This was ac
cordingly ordered, and in ten minutes
after the coinpletion of Wilson's speech
the llouse was cleared of its visitors
and had subsided to its usual state of
comparative tranquility.
The Speaker announced that the vote
would first be taken on Tawney's
amendment, raising the duty on bar
ley irom 20 per cent. to 22 cents per
tushel, and on malt from 30 per cent.
to 32 cents per bushel. The yeas and
- mas ere ordered on Tawne's amend
ment.and it defeate, yeas 120,
nay'197.
Wilson's amendment raising the duty
on bailey from 20 per cent. to 25 per
cent. Ad valorem, and on barley malt
from 30 per cent. to 35 per cent., was
then voted on and agreed to: Yees 204;
nays 114. Separate votes were demand
ed &n. the following amendments,
adopted in committee of the whole.
By Johnson (Dem.) of Ohio, on the
arieitent providing that the wool
paragiaph should take effect August 2,
1894;.,; Charles W. Stone (Rep.) of
Pennsylvania, on the amendment strik
ing Out the reciprocity clause of the
petrodum schedule, and by several
New-ork Democrats on the income
tax amendment. The other amend
ments (inclnding the two important
amendments to the sugar schedule, and
those 1epealing the bounty on sugar
and pitting refined sugar on the free
list) were agreed to, on a viva voce
vote.
The was a difference of opinion as
to whiA amendment to the wool sched
ule sbiald be voted on. Johnson's
(Demo at of Ohio) provided that the
wool 30edule should take effect imme
diael' after the bill is passed. This
was ajeed to in committee of the
whole, but subsequently the committee
at Mr.Wilaon's in itance, adopted an
other amendment striking out all after

A Singular Case.
ATLANTA, Ga., Jan. 31.-The feat
ures of the Harry Hill trial today were
the statements of the defendant and
the examinations of his aunt Mrs. Ca
sey and his ex-partner and lawyer,
Ectols.
Hill, in his statement which he read,
declared that Mrs. Porter had given him
money on various occasions. The first
that she ever gave him was $100, which
she handed to him in the Dairy Kitch
en, New York, where they were lunch
ing. That was in 1886. The follo'wing
Christmas, she made him a present of
$100. The next year, 1887, she gave
him $750. Of this she handed him $500
at her own home in Atlanta and the
other $250 she put in his pocket during
a carriage drive. In 1889, Hill said he
accompanied her part of the way to
Macon. On parting she handed him
an envelope which upon opening he
found contained $300. In 1890, he re
ceived a letter from Mrs. Porter, con
taining $350. and later in the year she
sent him $400 by express. In 1891,
Mrs. Porter made the first note which
was for $1,200. This Hill discounted.
Hill proceeded to detail the aid which
Mrs. Porter had rendered him from
time to time; how she became a mem
ber of the Wilson Whiskey Company,
unknown to her husband and brother.
This company was a bad invesement
and cosL Mrs. Porter heavily, as neither
of the other members of the concern
had anything to put in it. Probably
ten notes were made. Hill declared
that in each instance Mrs. Porter either
signed them or he signed them in her
presence with her consent. Hill as
serted dramatically that he never
forged her name to a single note and
protested his imiocence of the charge.
Mrs. Casey, the defendant's aunt tes
tified that she was an intimate friend
of Mrs. Porter's. The witness had de
lined to invest her money in the Wil
son Whiskey Company and advised
Mirs P'orter not to do so without in
forming her family. "I said to her
that it would be discovered some day
mnd that then her's would be the sad
:dest home in Atlanta."
Echols described the scene when he
informe-d Mrs. Porter that iil had
forged her name to notes. Mrs. Casey
was present. Mrs. Porter was deeply
moved.
Daring the trial, a sharp personal
passage occurred between Charley Hill
the prosecuting attorney for the State,
and his own brother, Ben Hill, one of
the counsel for the defense. Judge
Clark had to call them to order. Harry
[1ill, the defendant, is a cousin of his
lawyer and his prosecutor. Through
out the trial, the court room has been
:rowded by spectators who have wait
ed expecting something to crop out
which would have bearing on the scan
dalous rumors behind all this case.

A BIG WAR HISTORY;
The Story of the Late War to be Finished
Soon.
WAsHINGTON, D. C., Jan. 21.-The
biggest literary work ever undertaken
in America is the military history now
being produced by Uncle Sa-n, under
the iitle of "War of the Rebellion, a
Compilation of the Oficial Records of
the Union and Confederate Armies."
It Is the largest history ever published
in the world. It was began just twen
ty years ago and will be practically fna
ished at the end of the next fiscal year.
The whole work when completed will
embrace 120 huge royal octavo volumes
of 1,000 pages each, and a gigantic at
las, and the ultimate cost will be some
thing like $2,500,000. Each separate
book in a set is three inches thick and -
weighs from 50 to 60 ounces, and the
combined weight of an entire set will
be 520 pounds, while the volumes, if
set up in a row on a singie shelf of
one's library, would extend a distance
of 3) feet. Eleven thousand copies will I
be printed, so that the edition will'
comprise 1,320.000 books of 1,030
printed pages, aggregating 1,320,000,000
pages of matter, exclusive of the atlas.
Up to this date 89 serial volumes I
haN e been published and about 81,800,
000 has been spent in all branches of
the work, or about S20,000 per volume.
The printing and binding alone cost 1
$10,000 per volume, while the previous I
preparation of each volume for the c
printer's hands cost an equal sum of
$10,000.
The completei work will embrace 9
four series. The first deals in regular C
chronological orderiwith all the military
operations in the field; the second with t
official correspondence and reports on C
both sides relating to prisoners of war; a
the third will cover matters not spec- 1
ially related to the subjects treated in
the firss and second, while the fourth a
will exhibit the corresondence, or- c
ders, reports and returns of the Can- t
federate authorities in Lthe same line as
those of the Union officials set f.arth in 2
the third series. t
The method of treatment pursued (
throughout is altogether impartial and
non-partisan. Nothing is printed in
the volumes except duly authenticated t
contemporaneous records of the war,
and newspaper accounts and private a
reports are rigidly exclude I. 1
The story of this story of the war- t
the most extraordinary history of the b
most extraordinary war on record-is a
full of interest. The manner of its t
publication is in many respects unique, f
and some of the methods employed are r
peculiar to itself. The first definite t
step to execute the gigantic work were 9
taken in 1874, when Cngress passed a C
law providing the necessary means to
enable the Secretary of War to begin s
publication; but some essential pre
liminaries were gone through with ten
years before that date. Since then the E
work has passed through many inter
esting stages; but it has all been so
carefully done as to be perfectly har- I
monious and complete.
Every available source of first-hand
information has been ransacked, and
contributions of official papers that do a
not hapDen to be on file in the depart
ment are being recovered in allparts of
the country. Many of these papers are I
autograph messages and reports writ
ten by the olcers in command of the 1
various armies and divisions engaged
in the struggle, and altogether they
form a priaeless collection.
The distribution of the printed vol
umes as they come out is conducted on t
an unusual plan in accordance with a I
law of the 47th Congress, passed- in 0
1882.. Of the 11,000 copies ordered to be I
printed 1,000 are set aside for the var- I
ous- executive departments; 1,000 are I
reserved for distribution by the Secre-(
tary of War among army officers and 1
contributors to the work; 8,300 copies ~
are being sent to such libraries, posts, aJ
organizations and individuals as were ~
designated to receive them by Senators, C
Representatives and delegates of the ~
47th Congress, and the 700 copies over I
are for sale at the war department, 1
(with a possible 500 more, owing to the C
death of original beneficiaries.) at 10 t
per cent above the bare cost of print- C
ing, the proceeds to be covered into the 2
treasury. The books can be had at the
department by purchase at from 50 to
85 cents per volume, if bound in black
cloth, and .$1 extra per volume if
bound in half Turkey. None can be
had free on application. The 89 serial ~
parts already published can be got for
$56.10 in~ cloth. The atlas, when com
plete, will cost $12, or 40 cents a part,
there being 30 parts. I
Supplemental to this vast mass of
war records, now nearing completion, I
will be "Naval Records of the Rebel
lion," which is about to be begun on a
plan similar to that of the ar my rec
ords, though on a much smaller scale.I

RA LEIGH. Jan. Sg.-The daughter oft
George M. Pearson has committed sui- I
cide in Burke county. Her father didI
not clothe her sufficiently, refused toC
give her sufficient food and made her
do amazl's work. The child only 15 C
years old, complained that she was I
tired, hungry and sick all the time, and I
that she was tired of life. She went
into the woods and hanged herself with
a small shawl. Pearsons is now under
indictment for instigating his son to ]
poison a man who stood bet ween him a
and a neighbor's wife with whom he a
was infatuated. He estranged the af- C
fections of the man's wife and wishing C
to be ur distuibed in his possession it is r
harged that he told his son to drop ~
strychnine in water and give it to this s
man when he came from the field to his I
dinner. The plan would have been I
successful had rnot the boy weakened 3
at the last moment and confessed what I

Its JAckaonvllle Agent Instructed to Spare
No Expense in Endeavoring to Bring
the Corbett-Mltebell Crowd to Punish
mont
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 29.-The
aw and order league has resolved to
nake it lively for the prinepals and the
tiders and abettors in the Corbett
Afitchell prize fight. To-night Rev.
W. N. Cornoly, local agent of the
eague. called on the Southern Assoct
Lted press correspondent and asked
hat the following statement be made:
"In the matter of the prize fight, we
told the injunesion granted by Jadge
,all was an evasion of prescibed stat
Ltes, and if tne State j authorites do
lot very soon bring the matter up for.
eview in the Supreme Court the league
vill do so. I have heard that the Gov
rnor has instructed the Attorney Gea
ral to follow this line of action."
"What piovisions have been made to
irosecute this matter?"
"The International League has placed
mple funds at the disposal of its local
gents for this purpose and has given
nstructions for the suit to be pashed
or ward at the first sign of weakening
a the part of the State.
"Theleague is determined that such
n exhibition as took place in this city
'hursday shall not be repeatod In the

An Honest Man.
WAsmNGToN, Jan. 29.-Several days
go Representative Si'ley of Pensyl.
ania resigned his seat in the Htuse.
Ie was not in sympathy with the tar
ff bill. He felt that he could not con
istently support it, and he thought It
ietter to retire from publiclife and per
nit his constituents to elect a succe
or who would more properly repr6sent
heir wishes. The resignation met
rith a storm of protests from many of
he leading r ambers of his party. Sib
ay went over to Harrisburg Saturday
ad had a conference with Governor
lattison. The Governor urged him to
econsider his resignation, his arga
fent being that his withdrawal from
)ongress at this time would work more
ojary to the party organization than
ny action which Sibley might take re
arding the tariff bill. Sibley received
number of telegrams today from his
onstituents urging him to withdraw
is resignation and serve out his term.
n compliance with these requests Sib'
sy has decided to remain, but this de
ision will not affect his action upon
he tariff bill. He is still unalteredly
pposed to that measure, and will vote
gainst it.

AL"etSTA, Ga.3an 30.-Three let.
ers have been found in the Augusta
lotel which should have been posted
everal years ago. They were dated
Lpril 6, 1887, and were sealed and
tamped, but for some re ison did not

hem was a man named Harry Hutton
nd had penned the epistles on what
urported to be the eve of his self-de
truction. The letters were all direct
d to Baltimore-one to his father, an
ther to a friend and another to a re
ative. They all expressed the deepest
ontrition and in the first and last
Lamed he asked forgiveness, while in
he other he held himself up in the
ight of a warning to his friend. The
ecords show the name of no such sni
ide in this city and it is supposed that
Ither he decided to linger in this vale
