The Couple Arrested In Columbus Turned

Columbus, Ga., Nov. 25.—P. H. Keel
and wife, of Aiken, 8. C., who were ar
rested here charged with stealin j a pair
of blankets from tho White House in
Macon, have been released.
The proprietor of the hotel came over
_ and went through their baggage. The
missing blankets were not there, and
the hotel man, as was predicted by the
. Columbus officers, found that he had
acted just a little bit too hasty. He
slipped ass bill into Keel’s hands and
returned to Macon. Keel and his wife
left at 3:55 p. in. for Searight, Ala.
They are on their bridal journey, and
it is a little discomforting and unpleas
ant for them to be arrested and locked
up so early in tho game.

Macon, Nov. 25. —The South Caro
linians here took a deep interest in the
case of young Keel and his bride, who
were arrested at Columbus. They say
he is of an excellent family. His father
was a judge in South Carolina. V Mrs.
Keel is a handsome brunette, and of good
family, too. They had no baggage when
they came here except a basket, and were
asked to pay their board in advance,
which the groom did. The blankets
were missed from their room soon after
they left. It is not thought now that the
Keels had anything to do with the dis
appearance of the articles.
KILLED BY CANNIBALS.

San Francisco, Nov. 25.—Information
was received here by tho Alameda of a
tragedy committed by tho natived of the
island of Pentecost, in the Hebrides
group. The victims were George Lifon,
of Ambryni. aud two natives forming a
part of the crew of his vessel, a small
cutter sailing under the American flag.
Liston visited Pentecost to hire native
laborers. Early one morning, accom
panied by two natives, he left hie vessel
in a small boat to bring oflr several na
tive recruits. They did not return, and
those on IxMtid the American vessel Im>-
came alarmed. A second boat was sent
ashore, and it was discovered that the
natives had seized the first boat and
killed its occupants.
The bodies of Lifon and one native
were found near the beach horribly mu
tilated. No trace could lie obtained of
the body of the other native, and it is
concluded that the savages had taken it
to their village for a cannibal feast.

TRADE JUST WAITING
The Revival of Industries Hold
ing Back Some.
R. G. DUN & CO’S REPORT.
Cotton Goods Sold Heavi'y at
Satisfactory Prices Last
New York, Nov. 25.—R. G. Dun &
Co.’s weekly review of trade says:
Consumption increases slowly and all
branches of business are waiting for its
growth. The railroad earnings for the
month, thus far, are only 3.9 per cent
less than those of last year, the decrease
for the last week being made even small
er in freight earnings.
Trade waits for the revival of indus
tries and the week’s returns respecting
(.dustrial progress are rather conflict
ing. There has been a heavy sale of
cotton goods at very satisfactory pri •< s.
and the market has decidedly strength
ened in consequence. Though the pro
duction in this branch, is still somwhat
less than it was a year ago the market
for goods at current prices is strong.
In woolens there is a substantial in
crease in tho demand, notwithstanding
the fact that several mills, each having
orders for 1,000 pieces or more, have
closed, the orders not being so assorted
as to give them profitable employment.
But the sales of wool have been the
largest since September, 1892, amount
ing at three chief markets to 8.025,800
pounds against 4,813,500 for the same
week last year, and while it stated that
the many purchases are of a speculative
character, there is evidence that large
buying by active mills is prompted by
increased orders. *
In tho manufacture of boots and shoes
the demand employs an increasing num
ber of factories and the orders are innu
merable, as usual for the season, though
smaller in quantity. The shipments
from Boston, according to The Shoa ami
Leather Reporter, show a decrease of 1-
per cent for tho week. A gradual ir.
crease in the business is reported at at
centers not wholly confined to orders lor
l*ig> Iron Rules Low.
A new compact of the steel rail pro
ducers, the Pennsylvania and the Mary
land works having lieen leased to others
in order to keep them idle, has checked
the increase in the purchases of ore
and coal and other materials. Mid the
Pittsburg manufacturers are playing
havoc with eastern markets, though the
prices made in that region are so low
that their continuance cannot be predict
ed. There is an increase of the number
of concerns in operation, but there does
not appear to be much gain in the ac
tual consumption of pig iron, and prices
are as low as ever.
Even in the Pittsburg district, where
business is more active than elsewhere,
the works are now fully employed and
the state of manufacturer is shown by the
return of the Connellsville coke furnaces,
of which 6,385 are in operation and 11 ,-

Cotton is a sixteenth higher, though con

lief in a short crop does not outweigh the
fact that stocks abroad and at home are

INCOME TAXES WON.
The Democrats Stand 8 Fop,
HISTORY OF INCOME TAX.
It is Peeved Secretary Car
lisle Will, in His Report Ask
For Low Rate Bonds.
Washington, Nov, 25.—The fight for
an income tax virtually has been won so
far as the Democratic members of tho
ways and means committee are con
cerned. They stand today 8 to 3 in favor
of the tax, and it is extremely unlikely
that anything will occur to change this
situation. The history of the income tax
as levied and collected 30 years ago is
full of valuable suggestions at this time
and will serve an effective purpose when
the debate opens in the ho tse. For the
fiscal year ending July, 1863, tho levy
was 3 per cent on all incomes of S6OO and
not over SIO,OOO, and 5 per cent on all
incomes of SIO,OOO and upward. The
number of persons who paid under that
law S2O or less was 63,085. The number
paying over S2O and under SSO was
The number paying over SSO and un
der SIOO, was $28,936. The number pay
ing over SIOO and under SSOO was 54,778.
The number paying over SSOO was 50,-
888.- The total number of persons who
paid taxes on incomes in that year was
a trifle over 240,000. These times are.
of course, different from those. Wealth
has greatly increase .I, aud the popula
tion of the country has now more than
doubled. It will not bo necessary to fix
the minimum of assessable incomes as
low as S6OO. The likelihood is that it
will be fixed at $4,000. Even at that
figure, and with a population estimated
at 70,000,000, the tax will be paid by
not more than 150,000 persons. This
shows that the tax will fall where it is
designed to fall, on the small minority
whose wealth makes it just that they
should be called upon to help pay the
No Graded Increase.
The proposition to increase the per
cent with the amount of the income will
not lie adopted. It is considered that
that might give a communistic color to
the tax foreign to its real nature and to
the design of the committee. The rate
of the tax has ybt to be fixed. Those
members of the committee who are urg
ing an income tax are greatly encour
aged by what the record shows and sug
gests. The highest amount collected
while the law was in force was $72,000,-
000 in 1866, and had the law been con
tinued in force, even at two thirds of the
rate then levied, the whole of the public
debt would have been paid, the new
navy built and the rivers and harbors
improved by the money collected from
that source alone.
The chairman of the subcommittee re
porting upon this question is Mr. Mc-
Millin, of Tennessee, who has gone into
it with characteristic courage and thor
oughness, and whose speech on the sub
ject in the house is certain to be notable.
The opposition will be strong, with Mr.
Cockran heading it, but the probability
is that the tax will pass, and if it does,
the president will be certain to sign the
The latest proposition about sugar is
that a tax of half a cent a pound on all
sugars, raw and refined, be levied. The
trust is opposed to this; so are the Louis
iana men. The question remains open,
but if any tax at all is levied it is certain
to be small.
The weight of opinion is that the
whiskey tax will be increased probably
to sl.lO a gallon, and in the event of a
low rate on sugar to $1.20. The mem
bers of tho committee have spent several
evenings at the treasury department in
vestigating internal revenue statistics
and are proceeding with great caution iu
shaping that portion of the bill.
Will Carlisle Want Bonds?
The condition of the treasury is such
that some senators here hold the ques
tion of the finances to be a subject of
paramount importance. They are look
ing forward to Secretary Carlisle’s re
port with the belief that he will ask for
authority to seek gold in the European '
market with a low rate bond. That he
considers this course wise is the con
struction put by some upon his recent
utterances in New York.
It is also believed that Mr. Carlisle
will ask for authority to coin the seigni
orage of the silver bullion now in the
treasury, which would amount to over
$50,000.1)00, or probably enough to make
good the threatened treasury deficit.
But the coining facilities of the govern
ment are sr.'-h that it is doubtful wheth
er this silver could be coined into money
in time to be immediately available, and
what is needed, say those who dwell up- *
on the condition oi the treasury, is im
The proposition to coin the seiniorage
if it be taken in o congress will meet
with very stubborn opposition probably
from both the ext. ■ ie gold men and the
extreme silver men as well. The former
claim that such a proceeding will weaken
the security for the notes, and the latter
would recognize in the move a desire to
appear to recognize silver without giv
ing substantial encouragement to silver
mining. Many of them would also take
advantage of any opjwrtunity to thwart
the administration because of its general
policy towards the white metal.

A BRAVE STRUGGLE,
Was Tliat of Miss Yeargin Who Was
Drowned in New York.
Columbia, S. C., Nov. 25.—The story
of the life of Miss Mary Yeargin, who
was drowned in Cayuga Lake, near
Ithica, N. Y., Saturday, is one of wo
man’s hope and ambition cut short. She
was a self-made woman, whose strug
gles for education in the face of adverse
circumstances are deeply interesting.
She was the daughter of a one-armed
ex-Confederate soldier, who is now a
farmer in Laurens county. He was un
able to send her to college, but she was
determined to obtain an education.
Her father owned a gin and had been
employing a colored man as the engi
neer. Miss Yeargin asked him to let her
run the engine and give her the salary
given the colored man. He consented,
but with doubts of her ability to fill the
place. He was soon gratified to find that
she was fully capable of acting as engi
neer. She soon accumulated enough
money to attend the Methodist college in
the city, from which she was graduated.
After teaching in the college for some
time she went to Leesville, where she
taught about a year. She wanted to go
higher, however, and managed to gain
the means to go to Cornell university to
take a special course.
