Wahhingt'on, April '20. The ujoonshinors"
Are wy'7uuy noondays. Your1 average
moonshiner' is; notf Ualf so badly Informed a
person as you may -suppose, Sixty days, ago
thd funds for the suppression of moonshiners
gave out, and as Commissioner Miller is very
much opposed to making "deflcioncies," no
effort was made to exceed tho work actually
requited; The result "was that within a very
short tlmo after tho funds gave out tho moon
shiners were hard at work.
Curious, isn't it, that these mountaineers,
who are supposed to bo voting for Jackson
yet, should know within a fortnight yes,
oven sooner, (hat tho funds for their sup
pression hare boon exhausted? But it is u
fact They found it out long before tho gen
eral newspaper reading public, and tho
mountain regions of Kentucky, Tennessee
and Nortli Carolina havo been dotted with
the smoke of illicit distilleries since that
time. Many of tho moonshiners claim that
they aro doing quite tho proper thing in re
fusing to pay taxes on tho whisky they
make. Thov areuo that thov paid no whisky
htax bofore tho war and that they ought not
to pay any now that Democratic rule has
resumed at the White House. They wore
quito disapjwlnted and very much astonished
when tho new administration came iu to find
it bearing down on them oven harder than
ever, and were thoroughly disgusted to find
at the end of tho last fiscal year that- tho
number of nrroste'for moonshlning and the
number of stills broken up was greater tJmn
in any previous year.
Most of the illicit distilleries aro located
In tho mountain regions of Kentucky, Ton
nesseo and North Carolina. The mountain
region Is chosen because of Inaccessibility
for the pesky revenue officers, whom tho
moonshiners look upon as their natural eno-
. mlcs., Your average moonshiner is not a
moonshiner by profession or general occupa
tion. He is a farmer. He has a litte patch of
ground in tho mountains, a cabin, a gun and
a horse and cart; also several docs. Tho fer
tile valleys bo.tw.een the mountains permit
him to raise a good big patch of good corn,
but the markets are a long way olf mid tho
mountain roads bad. So the temptation is
to turn it into whisky, an article moro port
able, palatable mid more ready for bale. In
that region whisky making is no "lost nrt"
Everybody knows how to run a still. To
not know how to make whisky would be a
. much of disgrace as to bo ignorant of the
1 methods of making mush o r hog cake
With tho people of that section illegitimate
distilling is considered legitimate, mid to
run a non-taxed still an evidence of shrewd
business capacity.
The average still of the average moon
shiner is a very small affair. It makes per
haps five gallons a day, possibly ten. If it
reaches fifteen or twenty it is a tremeuduous
affair, so big that there is little hope of con
cealing its existence from tho keen eyed rev
enue officers. Indeed the averago distillery
in that part of tho country oulyayeroges ten
gallons a day. The illicit still is generally'
located in some concealed and comparatively
inaccessible spot. A favorite place is at th
foot of the mountain, just tinder an overhang
ing cliff, or concealed in some thicket o "
trees aud underbrush. If the distiller is able
to fo locate his still that it con only be
reached by crossing a troam or a sheet o!
waller ljo s entirely content, for hejs'not
llabje to burprigoby the revenue officers, ajd
has a fine opportunity to pick thorn off with
his rifle as they are approaching his retreat.
The moonshiner dofends his fortress with
his Ufa He knows ,iiia.t his jcapturo iu the
act of illicit 'distilllne moan penitentiary.
I and ho is ready to light rather than submit
to mis Aua wnen no aoes nnc m is 10 mo
death if need be. Many a revenue ofUcer
has been wounded and some killed iu thevj
raids on the moonshiners. The officers go
mounted on horbes, for there is no other way
of traveling through tho mouutain country,
and tliey are liable to be picked off by the
distillers who may have been warned of their
approach. The moonshinprs, of course, aid
each other against the revonuo officers. They
aro raided, too, fby the millers who grind the
corn from which they make the crooked
whisky. Often tjie raids have to be made in
the night, or with the utmost strategy, and
after the still is seized the retreat conducted
with the greatest skill and prainptjuess.
With a neighborhood of 'mooiishlneis'ami
thelrijfriendp aroused, a handful of 'revenue
'oincors'sinnd a pretty slim chanco of getting
away without being fired, upon from some
roadside ambush.
The greatest difficulty in making these,
raids is in getting the prolljhinary 'inrirm:t
tion by which tho existence o'f it tjtUI 04m , It
location are determined , SoiuQtimes .this in
formation is had from' the legitimate distill
ers, who of course nre juferofted in eelrg

sometimes the' deputy collectors or gqugors
and storekoeiers wprm out .the information
and bring it U ilia chief of the collection dis
trict Occasionally this Information is
brought to the officers by the wives or
daughters of toe distillers, who are opposod
to whisky because of tho family trouble it
brings.
Clovelnnd Attending Strictly to Uniilnnnx.
Washington, April 2fl. Marshal McMh
hon loft for New York toklay, He said tho '
president had promised to attend tho meet
ing of tho Society of tho Army of tho Poto
mac in Juno if possible. The president is a
member of the board of soldieis' homes, and
Gen. McMahon suggested that ho go with
the board this summer on their inspection
tour of the soldiers' liomw of the country. ,
This would necessitate n trip to the Pacific
hlopo. Mr. Cleveland said it would give him
much pleasure to do so, but ho found that ho
could not take the time from his publio duties.
Mr. Cleveland added that ho had received
numerous Invitations to visit diffureut sec
tions of the country, and that ho would
really like to accept thorn alL "But," ho
continued with a smile, "If I should under
take to comply with one-tenth of these ' invi
tations, It would be necessary to get somo
other man to do my work here, for I would
, only have lime to run to Washington and
f change my liuon."

Marr was then placed in charge of what is
known as tho Delaware, Maryland and Penn
sylvania desk, and in 18C0 was appointed
chief clerk to tho first assistant postmaster
general, which ivosition he held at tho timo
Of his death. In 1874 he was first assistant
postmaster general for wo montlu. During
his continuous service in tho postoffico depart
ment ho has served under twenty-six post
master generals, twonty-throo first assistants

Paris, April 26. Tho "excitement of the
Schnaebels incident is growing. All of the
papers devote moro spaco than evor to cor
respondence and dispatches upon tho subject.
Mine. Bchnaebels has been permitted to visit
her husband in company with her son. Sho
cavs that tho German police agent mot jier
at, the frontier and insisted upon acqom
panying hor to tho prison whore her husband
was confined They were pormlttod to talk
with him only In the presence of three polloo
agents. Thoy were forbidden to carry on
the conversation in any but tho Gorman
language, and tho wifo was forbidden to
question her husband concerning any par
ticulars of his arrest Schnaebels was in
good health and confident that he would
Boon bo releassd.
Mms. Schnaebels has furnished a copy of
tho following letter, which was sent to her
husband by tho German Commissioner
Gautsch, and which Is said to have induced
M. Schnaebels to go to tho frontier, where ho
was arrested:
"My Demi Colleague I have a commu
nication to niako to you which concerns
neither tho German nor French government,
but iu order to inako this communication to
you wo should be olono, and if you aro
willing we will take advantage of the ques
tion of tho frontier post to have a meeting.
Gautscil"
.Mmc. Schnaebels advised her husband
agalnt keeping this appointmont but he in
sisted upon going. Tho report of tho French
inspector declares that Schnaobols was some
thirty feet from the frontier and on Fronch
territory when tho arrest was mado.
A dispatch from Mayence says that since
1870 there liavo never boin as many Impor
tant movements of troops in the Rnonlsh
provinces as now. It looks like the year of
the groat war. Tao equip. njnt of tho mili
tary cars at Mayence and at Dusseldorf is
completed. In thruo days they transport
250,000 men and a second series of cars iu
the interior of Germany. Germ-iny and
Bavaria is capable of transporting in four
days 239,000 men.
The Arrest Mudo on German Soli.
Berlin, April 20. Tho commission at
Metz Investigating the case of tho French
commisary, Schnaebels, reports that tho
arrest was undoubtedly made upon Oermnn
soil. There are numerous charges of high
treason ag xlnst Schnaebels, and the ovidence
against him is overwhelming. The French
government has sent to Berlin documents
relating to the Schnaebels affair, including
Commisary Gautsch's two letters Inviting
Schnaebels to meet him.
Tho North German Gazette says that
Schnaebels tried to escape back to Fronch
territory when seized by the German agents,
but that he was overtokon before he could
cross tho frontier lino. 1
The Montagsblatt declares that M.
Schnaebels bad six subordinate agents who
were acting as spies for Gen. Boulanger, the
Frengh war minister. One of these agents,
a man named Kuhn, was dismissed by
Schnaebels, and subsequently entered the
Gorman service. He mado revelations
which led to tho arrest of other agents, and
much evidence was collocted thereby against
Schnaebels, who was informed some weeks
ago that a warrant had been issued for his
arrest, and ho would bo executed if he
crossed the frontier.
What U Is mar ok Has to Say.
Paris, April 20. It Is stated that Herr
Von Loyden, the German charge d' affairs,
has informed M. Flaurens, the French min
ister of foreign affairs, that Prince Bismarck
regretted tliat the judge of the court at Loip
slo had ordered tho arrest of M. Schnaebels
without consulting him (Birmarck) for an
offence whereof tho German chancellor re
serves his opinion.
