THE WHISKY TRUST
Judge Gibbons Sustains Demur
rer to Amended Pleas.
OUSTER JUDGMENT DIRECTED.
If the Decision is Sustained, It Will End
the Corporate Existence of the De
fendantWhat Assistant Attorney
General Sehofield Says About It.
Chicago, September 20. Judge Gib
bons to-day sustained the demurrer to
the amended pleas of the Whisky Trust
to information in quo warranto filed by
Attorney-General Maloney, and di
rected the Attorney-General to prepare
a judgment of ouster against the trust.
The decision is .on formal matters left
unsettled by the main decision three
months ago. Defendant will appeal. If
the decision is sustained, it will end the
corporate existence of the defendant.
The Attorney-General will prepare the
' judgment of ouster, as directed by the
court, .JThis will be entered, but the de
fendant's appeal will operate to suspend
it, and nothing definite will result until
the Supreme Court passes on the same.
The proceedings to-day end the case in
the lower courts. J udge Gibbons in
making the final order, said :
"The legal effect of the pleas is to
admit the ownership and control of
eighty-one or more distilleries by the
respondent," which up to the time of
their acquisition or absorption by it
were owned and controlled by separate
and distinct corporations. . It is not the
wealth represented by the capital stocks
of a corporation, nor the value of its
property, which brings it within the ban
of outlawry, but it is the effect upon the
public, growing out of a combination of
corporations or interests, the inevitable
result of which, whether so intended or
not; is to govern the supply and regulate
the price of distilled spirits. .. In its con-
' federated form it possesses a power and
influence which no single corporation
could wield. Its ramifications extend
into and their power is felt in every city
in the Union. Corporations may flourish
and expand,' but competition and in-
: dividualism must neither be thwarted
nor crushed." . -
'-: Assistant Attorney-General Sehofield
" If to-day's decision is sustained, the
; property of the Whisky Trust will, of
course, go first to the creditors, then to
the owners, but whether a receiver will
be appointed, if the decision is sustained,
or some other means of distributing the
; -property adopted I cannot say."
UNITED STATES ARMY.
Why the Latest Order of General Soho
' field Was Withheld.
Washington, September 20. It was
perhaps with a View to the' unexpected
execution of the plan for the concentra-
. tion of troops and the reduction of a
number of army posts that the formal
order to give it effect was withheld until
Congress had adjourned and but few
Senators and Representatives remained
in Washington. By the terms of the
order nine posts are abandoned. They
are in the West, namely : 1 '
Fort Marcy, N. M. ; Fort Bowie, A. T. ;
Fort McKinney, Wyo. ; Fort Sully, S.
D. ; Fort Supply, O. T. ; Fort Mackinac,
.Mich., and Newport Barracks, Ky.
These posts were much too numerous
in Western States, causing an expendi
ture with regularity of large sums of
money by the garrisons and encouraging
business generally. It was not supposed
that they could be abandoned without
some opposition, and already a flood of
' protests have begun to pour in upon the
War Department, remonstrating against
the changes in every case. General
Sehofield, who is acting as Secretary of
' War, has to bear, the brunt, but he is
laying aside the papers until the return
of Secretary Lamont, who must pass
upon them in the end.
' Shlrtniakers to Strike. '
New York, September 21. Shirtmak
ers to the niynber of 3,000 are preparing
for a general strike against the present
low wages and the sweating system. By
the success of the coatmakers and cloak
makers the shirtmakers a far more im
poverished lot feel sufficiently encour
aged to engage in a general movement
all along the'line. j ' .
The Imperial Prime Minister Addresses
Buda-Pbbth, September 22. Count
Kalnoky, Imperial Prime Minister, in a
speech to the Hungarian delegations to
day expressed the opinion that Hungary
had just cause to complain in regard to
the anti-Hungarian agitation in Rou
mania. He would not, however, blame
the Roumanian government, because the
books and maps used in the schools
designated Transylvania as Roumanian
territory. These, he said, were issued
by Chauvinist circles, and the Rouman
ian government was totally irresponsible
for them. A continuance of the friendly
relations with Roumania, he believed
was the best means to cause Roumanian
irredentism to disappear. In regard to
.Bulgaria t-ount JLalnoky said the fall
of Premier Stambuloff had been foreseen
He had governed too lone for the im
patience of his adversaries to tolerate him
further. - Prince Ferdinand, he declared,
was a man of fine intelligence, and cer
tainly did not desire the imperial inde
pendence of the country which he had
done so much to consolidate. In reply
to an interpellation in regard to Italy
Count Kalnoky said the entente be
tween Austria and Italy was too strong
to be shaken by incidents like' the dis-
course of Signor Bonghi attacking the
dreibund. Kegarding a policy of inter
national measures against anarchy, he
said it would be of small practical value,
A delegate, interrupting, recalled a re
mark made bv uount Andrassy that A
moderate policy like Kalnoky's might
lead to fatal consequences." Count Kal
"If Count Andrassy had lived until
now, he would have been satisfied with
the results of that policy."-; - :
Another delegate asking an explana
tion as to an independent election of a
Pope to comply with the guarantee of
the Italian government, .Jvainoky re-
nlied : .
" Kegarding our influence, there is no
reason to renounce it. We are prepared
to maintain its full value."
Archbishop Samassa. who was present
in the delegation, spoke in behalf of an
independent conclave. He insisted that
the question of the succession of the
Pope might become critical at any mo
ment. Although the papacy was an
ecclesiastical institution, it was also a
political institution of the highest im
portance. The position of the Pope to
day, he declared, was even .higher than
when he distributed the crowns ot
Europe. The great powers would fail
to elect a Pope unless it was supported
by the voice of the church. The .H,m-
peror of Austria had a traditional right
to exclude Cardinals from taking part in
an election who did not possess his ap
proval, but that right could be controlled
by the conclave. It was therefore of the
greatest importance that Austria should
be represented in the connclave by Car
dinals, who, besides being diplomates,
were also in touch with the permanent
policy oi the iioiy see. . ,
NEW DEPARTURE. '
The Goulds Are at Present Interested In
New Yohk, September 21. The Gould
family has now branched out of, railroad
and telegraph interests and entered the
manufacturing. The Continental Match
Company, which has its offices in Tem
ple Court and a . plant in. Passaic, N. J.,
is a competitor of the great Diamond
Match Trhst, and is owned aid con
trolled by Edwin Gould. Tt is uhdei4
stood the other brothers are interested.
Edwin Gould's name appears as- one of
the incorporators,' ' The charter of the
company in Trenton says: ; -
The (Jontinental Match - Company,
formed for the manufacture of matches
and other wooden articles', capital, 11,-
000,000; President, Edwin F. Gould;
Vice-rresident, W. D . Hutchinson; Sec
retary and Treasurer, Wallace A. Downs."
Mr. Gould in an interview about his
new match company said; '
' The company is formed for the pur
pose of selling matches and not for the
purpose of fighting trusts or companies.
We have what I consider; unusually Val
uable patents, and before we formed the
company gave them a thoroughly prac
tical examination. We will be ready to
put our goods on the market in a few
weeks. Yes, if necessary, the capital of
the company may be increased to $5,
000,000 or $10,000,000. I do not care to
say how much of the stock I personally
own. it is a controlling interest, how
ever."- : , .' '-''.- '
Requirements of the Contract Met.
Washington, September1 20. The
War Department has been notified by
Major Phipps, President of the Ordinance
Board, which conducted the recent tests
of dynamite gun batteries ' at Sandy
Hook, that the guns worked well, and
that all of the requirements of the con
tract had been met. Consequently the
battery and "plant will be accepted, and
the pneumatic dynamite company will
be paid $100,000 for one 8-inch and two
15-inch guns with all of the boilers,
compressors and machinery, and the
shells used in the test and the reserve
projectiles for exhibition. ' This experi
ment having resulted well; work will be
pushed on the dynamite battery for the
San Francisco harbor.

road, and the business men of Perry and
the Atchison and Topeka are making ar'
rangements to furnish every farmer of

i Von Hanneken Reported Killed.
Shanghai, September 19. A naval
engagement has ' taken place off the
mouth of the Yalu river, where a Chi
nese squadron was covering the landing
of a large force. The landing was ef
fected, but in the, meantime the Japan
ese fleet attacked the squadron. ; In the
fighting that followed the Chinese iron
clad -Chin Yuen was" sunk by the fire of
the attacking fleet. The Yong Wei, be
longing to the Chinese sqnadron, in at
tempting to get out of the range of fire
and in maneuvering for a position was
run aground. ' Another Chinese ship is
also reported to have been sunk. The
Japanese are also reported to have sus
tained a heavy loss, three of their vessels
having been sunk by the fire from the
Chinese. Admiral ; Ting, Colonel von
Hanneken and other foreigners are re
ported as having been killed during the
attack. No estimates are made of the
losses by either side.
BATTLE OP PING YANG. .
Thousands of Chinese Prisoners to be
.t .Sent to Japan. ' '
London, September 19. The officials
of the Japanese legation here have re
ceived the following cable dispatch: . ' '
Our army surrounded Ping Yang the
15th instant, and after severe fighting
gained a great victory and captured the
city - The number of the enemy killed,
wounded and taken prisoners is immense.
The Japanese lost eleven officers and 260
soldiers, killed and wounded.":
The British Minister at , Tokio ; has
cabled the' foreign office announcing the
Japanese victory? ' A Central News Ping
Yang dispatch, dated yesterday, says
that 14,000 prisoners marched through
that place yesterday ; others are arriving
hourly, and will, be shipped to Japan.
The report that there are 50,000 Chinese
between Ping Yang and the Yalu river
is discredited. The lorce around ring
Yang was the flower of. the army and
really the only effective part. The China
men composing the levies now made
have do' idea of, modern warfare. - An
other Ping Yang dispatch says that im
mense quantities of rifles and stores are
stacked in the public squares. The Chi
nese' prisoners are fairly well treated.
They will be sent to Japan in batches of
1,000 each. . J : ....
The shanghai correspondent oi the
Pall Mall Gazette states the Japanese in
the attack on. Ping Yang were enabled
by brilliant moonlight during the night,
throughout which the battle lasted, to
do great execution with their field guns.
The Ping Yang garrison numbered 20,-
UUU. The Japanese are advancing on
Monkden. The correspondent adds it is
reported Li Hung Chang has been de
posed. Another Shanghai dispatch says
Chang has' been deprived of his three-
eyed peacock feather because of his mis
management oi tne uorean campaign.
: .The Secretary of the Chinese legation
savs with reference to the reported sui
cide of Li Hung Chang that he received
message from unang, dated lien ism,
to-dav. in which he expressed fears the
Chinese would have great difficulty in
retaining Ping Yang. :
The Uentral News says that after .the
first feeling of surprise-at the Japanese
victory has worn off it - is, admitted by
experts who know the respective quali
ties of the armies tnat'.tne result .is . a
natural onel- Marshal Yamagata, the,
Japanese v commander-in-chief, . was
trained in European schools, and" the
other Japanese commanders-and staff
officers, were similarly educated. .The

Japanese. ; ';"'' ' - , ., ;
Chang May be Further Punished.'
Washington, September 19. A" dis
patch from Charles Denby, the United
States Charge d' Affaires in China, says
the Emperor of China has deprived :
Viceroy Li Hung Chang of - two of his ;
decorations for his failure to properly
conduct military operations, and that he
would probably be subjected to fit ill
greater punishment. , ...",'
v Counterfeiters Captured. '
Ykeka, Cal., September 19. Govern
ment Detective Harris has captured a
man named Ewing at Scott Valley, whom
he charges with making and circulating
spurious silver coins. Eight dollars in
counterfeit money was found in the pos
session of the prisoner. A confederate
named Johnson escaped. The gang num
bers hfteen in all, and have been circu- I
lating counterfeit money throughout
Northern California and Southern Ore
gon. The counterfeits consist of quar
ters, halves and dollars, and are good
imitations, the work being well executed.
Harris arrested two of the gang a few
days ago in Shasta county.

this part of the valley, The quality is
very fine. 1
PRATT WILL CONTEST.
The Fight Promise to be a Very Inter
eating One. .' -'t'l-..' '."; K
Los Angelk, September ' 19. The
trial of the sensational contest over the
will of Mrs. Anna A. Pratt, who died a
few months ago, shortly after the deci
sion was rendered in the famous family
squabble over the guardianship of her
person and estate, was commenced in
the Probate Court to-day. The late Mrs.
Pratt left an estate estimated to be worth
$700,000 at least and an oleographicwill,
dated April 28, 1881. By its terms she
named as her executors Mrs. Louisa G.
Crosq, her sister ; Charles P. Pratt, her
as. nnj HfM 7 r I .... i.
own , AI1U XUXO. JJU1U V. UUUUDCCU, iici
daughter."" Charles P. Pratt subsequent
ly died, and a codicil was attached June
3, 1885, to the effect that in the event of
the marriage of Kate N. Pratt, her son's
widow, the $10,000 left to her in the
original will was to be given to her chil
dren. " This document is contested by
Mrs. Lulu Goodspeed and E. L. Camp
bell, the legally appointed guardian of
the minor heirs of Charles P. Pratt, de
ceased, who contend that at the time the
will was executed Mrs. Pratt was under
duress and undue influence.- It is fur
ther claimed that the contestants are in
possession of another will, which, if
shown to' be genuine. ' will complete! V
change the aspect of affairs. The fight
promises to be one of the most interest
ing heard in the Probate Court for some
time past. - '
.. DOWN ON HIS KNEES, i -
Reformed Gambler's Prayer in Mayor
Eugtls' Office. ' ' ''
Minneapolis, September 19. There
was a sensational scene in the office of
Mayor Eustis. : John P. Quinn, a re
formed gambler evangelist, now in' the
city, had charged in a talk before the Y.
M. C. A. that not only was there gam
bling in Minneapolis, but that the au
thorities knew it and licensed it. This
charge brought Quinn a note from the
Mayor asking him to call at the Mayor's
office. Quinn promptly appeared with
his colleague,' E. F. Goeflel, a lawyer
evangelist. Newspaper men witnessed
a warm debate between the Mayor and
ex-gambler. The gambler charged and
the Mayor denied that there was public
gambling, and that gambling was . li
censed by the authorities. Quinn wound
up his talk by getting down on his knees
in the Mayor's office and prayirig for the
blotting out of the gambling hells and
for divine light for the Mayor that he
might see the path of duty. The Mayor
gave the evangelist a caustic scoring for
charging ' things that were untrue and
he could not prove. - -
Southern Faclflo Experimenting
. With a New System.
'. San Fhanciscq, September 19.- A new
system for; lighting railway' carsi' which
has been in use on many of the Eastern
roads for Borne, time, wiU,s,66h be adopted
by the Southern Pacific Company. , Un
der the new-system each car will be sup
plied with a cylinder -containing crude
petroleum in -sufficient quantity to gen
erate gas to meet the requirements dur
ing a trip. The first, experiment With
this, method of lighting was made last
night at the Oakland yards with one of
the mail coaches of the Central. Pacific
division, which had .been fitted iip for
that purpose. The light was thoroughly
tested, and worked with perfect satis
faction and with far better results than
that deriyed by the use of coal oil lamps,
now commonly used, or; gasoline, which
is used on some of the roads running out
of Chicago. It is the intention of the
Southern Pacific Company to introduce
the new system on all the mail coaches
of its road as rapidly as the work can be
done, and if it is found to work as well
as it did in the test, passenger coaches
will also be lighted in the same manner.
Petroleum gas is already being used on
some of the latest models of Pullman
cars, -"i- ", ' ',: t ' ' '-- . ;'

THE BOYS IN BLUE
The Expected Order for Changes
in Location Made.
TROOPS MOVED EASTWARD,
When the New Posts in Montana and
; Colorado Are Completed Troops Will
. be ; Further Concentrated List of
; Post That Will be Abandoned.
Washington, September 18. The or
der anxiously awaited in army circles
providing for extensive changes in the
location of the United States army was
issued to-day. They provide garrisons
for the old recruiting depots, and also
contemplate a considerable concentra
tion of troops'. Several of the smaller
stations east of the Mississippi, as" well
a few in the Western country, are given
upas no longer necessary. The regi
ments which are to be brought East in
whole or in part are the Third and Sixth
Cavalry; the Thirteenth and Seven teeth
infantry and the whole Twentieth In
fantry, now stationed at Fort Leaven
worth. The Tenth Infantry, that has
heretofore been scattered between five
posts from the Pacific Coast to the Mis
sissippi Valley, will now come together
at pill and Keno, while the whole Fifth
Regiment, formerly occupying five sta
tions, will be assembled at Fort HcPher
son, Ga. As soon as some changes are
made in the quarters at Jefferson Bar
racks and Columbus Barracks, the two
troops of cavalry now ordered- to the
former will be joined , by four other
troops, and the remainder of the Seven
teenth Infantry will be sent to Columbus
.Barracks, making the latter a regimental
post. , : David's Island will be occupied by
the artillery as a modern fortification,
which has been constructed there to cpm
mand the sound entrance to New York
harbor and is now receiving the arma
ment required as an artillery garrison.
Fort Columbus on Governor's Island
will hereafter be an infantry post, to be
ultimately increased to a full regiment.
The total number of companies now
serving east of the Mississippi is 100. In
future it will be 119, occupying thirty-
one posts.;. The gain to the Hast, oi
course, comes from the West, but the
number of posts remaining west of the
Mississippi is fortv-nine. and those are
garrisoned by 245 companies, without
counting the Indian companies, of which
there are seven. It will be seen, there
fore, not more than two-thirds of the
regular army still remains in the West.
Congress has ordered the building of
two new posts, one in Montana and one
in Arkansas. When these are ' com
pleted other points will be given up and
troops still ' further concentrated. Gen

, The Tariff Bounty Clause.
Washingto, ' September . 20. The
Miles Planting and Manufacturing Com
pany of Louisiana, engaged in the plant-
ing and growing of sugar cane, this aft
ernoon applied to Judge McComas in
the District Supreme Court for a man
damus against the Secretary of the Treas
ury and the Uommissioner of internal
Revenue to compel them to continue the
inspection of sugar plantations as re- -quired
by the McKinley sugar bounty
law. The petitions state that an inspec
tion of their plant had been refused by
the treasury officials on the ground that
the- lately enacted , tariff law annulled
and rescinded the granting of a bounty
to sugar producers ; that the tariff act
does so operate the "petitioners deny.
