SENDING GIRLS INTO THE UNI TED STATES, For Immoral Purposes A Noted Pro curess Escapes Conviction.

Two young men charged with being accom plices were also under arrest. Ou Tues day night fifteen young girls were ship ped to Chicago, but two of them were arrested as they were boarding the train. The evidence at the examination was not sufficient to secure a conviction and all parties were discharged. It is a well known fact that a large number of girls are sent out from here for immoral purposes, chiefly to American cities and the authorities are making strong ef forts to stop the practice. AN INSANE FATHER. THE RALEIGH & GASTON R. R. Its Position Defined With Reference to the Taxes Demanded From it by the State. Prominent officials of the Raleigh & Gaston railroad assert that the position of the company, with reference to the taxe3 demanded from it by the State, is misunderstood in some quarters, and they think this misunderstanding has arisen from the publication, by the pa pers, of the proceedings in the courts and before the railroad aud corporation investigation committee. The Chronicle does not think itself responsible for whatever misunder standing there is. If it is, it is more the result af accident than intention. This paper hopes and believes it is incapable of an effort to create a false i n pression with reference to anything. ul rays fiadsj)Ieasure in trying to cor rect any erroneous impressions with reference to any matter, and it gladly gives the substance of the position of the Raleigh & Gaston railroad company as incidentally given by Major Winder in a conversation with a Reporter yester day. The company has construed the act, under which it is incorporated, as abso lutely exempting the railroad from taxa tion up to the meeting of the last Gen eral Assembly. The exempting clause is section 8 of the charter (Acts 1851-,52) and reads as follows: "That the said railroad and all en gines, cars ana vehicles, and all the works of said company, together with all profits which shall accrue from the same, shall be vested in the said com pany, one-half thereof to the use and benefit of tho State, and the other half to the use and benefit of the individual stockholders; and the same shall be deemed and held to be personal estate, and shall be exempt from any public charge or tax whatsoeyer for the term of fifteen years; and thereafter the legis lature may impose a tax not exceeding twenty-five cents per annum on each share of tho capital stock held by indi viduals whenever the annual profits shall exceed eight per cent." It will be seen that the charter gives absolute exemption from taxation for a period of fifteen years from the date of incorporation, or up to the year 1867. iiner mat uate tne legislature may im pose a tax of twenty-five cents per an num on each share of the capital stock whenever the annual profits shall exceed eight per cent. The company claims and holds that there had never been a law, up to 1889, which made it liable to taxation; for white the charter provides that the leg islature may impose a tax under certain conditions, that body never did so until its last session; and the reasonable con struction of the company is that had the annual earnings been forty per c?nt. be tween the time it was chartered and the legislature of 1839, it can not be held liable for any tax for "those years, b3 cause there was no law imposing any tax. But the company does not admit that its annual earnings have exceeded tho eight per cent, limit during that time. Since the passage of the act by the legislature of 1889, the company does not claim that it has any exemption from the tax, provided its earnings shall ex ceed eight per cent. Soon after the legislature imposed this tax, the State treasurer brought suit against the company to recover taxes for all the years between 1867 and 1869, basing his action on the ground that the annual profits of the company had ex ceeded eight per cent, for all those years. The company resisted this claim, on the grounds that the annual earnings had not exceeded the limit allowed by the charter, and that up to 1889 there had never been a law imposing the tax. Pending the suit, the State made a pro position to the railroad to compromise the case for fifteen thousand dollar.?. This the railroad company declined, and the suit was still pending when the State investigation committee recently met here and began on examination into the company's f.ffdirs. Tho Statu made the same proposition to compromise as be fore, and tho company accepted it. But the acceptance did not arise from any uneasiness on the part of the company that its affairs would show up too favor ably. It believed it could claim and sustain its exemption under the section THE NARROW POLICY THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS PURSUING. McKinley's Committee .Making Up Tarifr to Satisfy Men Who Can Con trol Votes No Statesmanship or Pa triotism in Their Acts, Says Jlr. Cleveland. From Atlanta Journal New York, April 24. Mr. Cleveland gave me to-day some important views on the tariff bill of McKinley and on tariff legislation generally that have never been heretofore expressed by himself or any other public man. They are, be side being rilled with that common sense and broad statesmanship that character ize his every public act or utterance, sharp and to the point to the center and heart of Republican selfish legisla tion for the classes instead of for the whole people. They show the motive underlying the McKinley bill, and place the greed of that party clearly in the light of the day. Congressional Veerings. I talked with Mr. Cleveland, in refer ence to the shiftings and veerings of congressional opinion on tariff legisla tion and how each deputation from the manufacturers had caused McKinley and his followers to tack, and drift be tween the free list and Chinese wall pro tection according to the influence and votes controlled by these deputations. This, Mr. Cleveland said, is the real method of the workings of the republi can party. It does not seek to ground legislation upon the broad policy of the best interest ot the whole people, but seeks to protect those men and classes that may have the power to keep tho republicans in office. 3Ir. Cleveland's Views. When the subject of tariff reform was mentioned as one concerning which the public would be glad to hear his views, Mr. Cleveland said his opinions and po sition were so well understood that it could not be profitable to again state them. Ho said, however, that one thing had lately much impressed him, and could not fail to present to the people a valuablo object lesson. They must see how persistently selfish interests have besieged the doors of the Ways and Means Committee in the House of Rep resentatives, having in charge the preparation of the tariff bill, and how completely the labors of that committee nave been directed to tho adjustment of the claims of tnese interests. What Caused Trouble. The perplexities of the committee which have been certainly very apparent and the uncertainty and changes which have characterized its action, seem to have arisen from trying to conciliate these selfish interests instead of from any inherent difficulty in determining upon a wise and patriotic policy which would further the welfare of tne people and advance the prosperity of the country. There must be something wrong in this dealing with the question of tariff ad justment, and it must b3 an unsafe and dangerous party creed that is satisfied by such a treatment of the question of taxation as shall subordinate all other considerations to the adjustment of such private interests as seek undue profits and wealth through their settlement. This is too much of a recognition of the theory that the government should sup port the people instead of an adherence to the better doctrine that the people should support the government.

After crossing the river they started to Sandy Point, and when near the east shore, the boat capsized, which resulted in the drowning of Day and Tooker. Conner clung to tho boat un til he was taken up by a passing boat, which brought him to this city, and the story of the terrible affair which he told, was a sad and heart-rending one. The bodies of tho boys were seined for and found, and were brought to the city. The coroner did not deem it neces sary to hold an inquest. 3IR. ARRINGTON'S GOOD LUCK. RURNED TO DEATH.

The real cause of the fire is not known and probably will never be known, but it is thought that as the old gentleman sometimes drank too much he possibly was under the influence of alcohol and fell in the fire, or that the house caught in some way, and he being unable to help himself, lost his life. The coroner, Dr. Thomas Hill, was promptly notified of the calamity and came down Sunday afternoon and inves tigated the matter, but as there was no suspicion of foul play he did not deem it necessary to summon a jury.
