ATLANTA’S NEW INDUSTRY STOP

Waiting Workmen Thrown Out of
Employment- The Convict System to
be Investigated Startling Rumors
Regarding the Methods Practiced-
Atlanta, Ga., June 21.—The Atlanta
Glass Factory was destroyed by fire this
morning. The main building and the en
tire plant were consumed. The loss is about
$40,000 and the insurance about $20,000.
The fire is thought to have originated in a
defective flue, though the manager, Jesse
Hawkin, has a vague idea that it was the
work of an incendiary. The glass
works had just been gotten in shape
and were to have been put in operation to
day for the first time. One hundred skilled
flass blow ers stood ready to go to work.
'hose men are thus thrown out of work at
the outset. Manager Hawkin says the plant
will be rebuilt at once, and that the Atlanta
glass factory will be in operation by Sept. 1
The investigating committee on the peni
tentiary held two sessions to-day, and ex
amined Capt. Towers and Messrs. ‘.Shubrick
and Westmoreland, penitentiary officials,
and W. B. Low e, one of the two remaining
original lessees. The points developed in
this examination, though not new, are of
great imjiortanee as regards tlie treatment
of the convicts. Women are worked and
housed separately, but in some of the camps
a number of children were born, and in one
instance a superintendent was discharged
suspected of criminal connection with the
affair. That the majority of the women in
the penitentiary are. there for aggravated
crimes and are said to be most desperate
characters. Mr. Low'e is decidedly against
the opinion that a reformatory prison is the
best for women and the young criminals.
He says the latter nearly always are hard
cases, when sent up. often before the courts
which are indulgent to them, and that the
women criminals are beyond recaimation.
Only Messrs. Lowe and Brown are left of the
first lessees. Those now interested in the
lease are Messrs. Brown, Lowe, English,
Smith and T. L. James. Mr. Lowe has con
tracted out the convicts at Gresstown and
Cedartown at $240 each per annuni, but the
control and maintenance is still with him.
The members of the Committee looked into
these contracts, and seemed of the opinion
that the convicts were hired in violation of
law. But Mr. Iwe stated that the con
tracts were made after consulting his law
yer, ex-Gov. Smith. and submitting them to
Gov. Colquitt. The Committee then
went into the question of the value
of the lease interests and of the convicts tp
the lessees. Capt. Grant, who had three
fourths of No. :! camp, sold his interest
several years ago for $45,000, making for
the whole company $60,000. No. 2 was the
same, and No. 1 $20,000. Mr. Lowe is said
to be netting $50,000 yearly out of his, and
the whole lessee interest is $200,000. The
Governor gave the ronunittee this afternoon
his views as to ills duty in the event of the
forfeiture of any lessee. Mr. Smith being
referred to, he said he would like to keep
and work for thq State all the convicts
taken back under the forfeiture, but
he says he has been advised to release
them if necessary. If the occasion occurs
ho would submit the question to the At
torney General ,and be governed by his
opinion. The Governor alluded to the re
jiorta almut Mr. Smith’s camp, which had
been brought to him a week ago by Capt.
Towers, and said that an immediate inves
tigation was ordered. Capt.' "rowers and
Messrs. Shubrick and Schofield go to Ogle
thorpe on the early morning tram to inves
tigate. The committee adjourned to
Thursday, when Mr. Schofield is expected
to return with the facts.

TROUBLE AT WAYCROSS.
Saw Mill Litigation Causes Trouble
and Shots Are Exchanged.
Waycross, Ga., June 21.— At the 26-mile
post of the Brunswick and Western rail
road (Waynesvi lie) is located a saw mill
known as Prentice's mill. This mill was
leased to the Spencer Brothers, who operated
it until a short time ago, when it became in
volved in the courts financially and was
closed up. Yesterday the owner, W. A.
Prentice, nppeaced on the ground and put a
gang of men to cleaning up, preparatory to
starting up. Mr. B. Spencer was at home
and appeared on the scene and objected,
claiming that his lease had not expired, and
ordered the Prentice party away
as trespassers. He had a pistol in
his hand. H. W. Came, one of
Mr. Prentice’s men, stepped up and
took the pistol from Spencer and oidered
him away. Spencer then left, leaving Pren
tice in possession. The night express train
brought the other Spencer to the mMI, and
a conference was being held last night by
the Spencer party, when a volley of buck
shot was fired into them, four persons
being hit. One, John Steele, received two
bullets in his right hand and another
in his left arm; Elijah Jacobs
four bullets in his back, and the two Spen
cers were slightly wounded. William Wig
gins, one of tlie Spencer crowd, was shot at
sixteen times, but saved himself by hiding
behind a post, from w'henoe he returned the
fusilade. He was not hurt. The Prentice
crowd had the Spencer brothers, Jean Steele
and William Wiggins arrested and carried
to Jesup, the county site of Wayne county. ,
Everything is quiet now, hut it is feared
that further trouble may arise when the

lives were lost. The vessel left Marble
Head yesterday afternoon at 3 o’clock, and
when off Black river the Captain’s wife,
who was on board, begged the master to put
in at Lorain, as the threatening weather
alarmed her. The vessel was headed toward
tlie harbor, but had scarcely turned about
when she was struck by a terrible squall,
the wind sweeping the "barge around and
around. The hold filled with water,
and in half a minute she
sank. The Captain, mate and two
of the Captain's sons saved themselves by
clinging to the floating fenders. This morn

ESTIMATED DECREASE IN THE
A Handsome Cash Balance Shown—
The Interstate Commission Defines
Publicity—Arguments on Behalf of
the Burton Car Company—Civil Ser
vice Rules to be Further Extended.
Washington, June 21. —The following
statement in regard to the national finances
is authorized by the Treasury Department:
The estimated receipts and expenditures of
the government in the months of July and Au
gust show that there will lie decrease rather
than increase of the treasury surplus during
that time. After providing for $19,71ti,0000f the
3 percent, bonds due July 1 the surplus will be
about $37,000,000. The pension appropriation of
$78,075,000 for the fiscal year ending June 30,
1887, is already exhausted, consequently the
pension bureau reports that when the new ap
propriation become* available on July 1 it will
draw $12,000,000 for the payment of pensions.
This will leave in the Treasury a surplus of $25.-
000,000. The government assets in national
bank depositories July 1 will about equal that
sum. so that the whole govern
ment balance will thus lie available for
the current business of the country on July
1, and will probably continue thus available
for some months, for the amount of the govern
ment deposits ir. the national banks constantly
increases, and in August another $12,000,000 will
be drawn for pensions. Accruing interest and
ordinary expenses will requires27,o3o,oooinJuly
and August, and the receipts for those months
will be about $05,000,000, leaving ou Sept. 1 a
surplus less than on July 1 of 830,000.000. Other
considerations should be noted as affecting toe
influence of the Treasury upon the finances of
the country. One is, that of the above estimated
receipts more than $1,000,000 will come not from
taxation, but from the profit on the coinage of
the silver dollar. Another is. that during July
and August the government will expend
at least $4,000,000 in the purchase of
silver bullion, which sum is not
included in the above estimated expenditures.
Another is, that $7,000,000 of the surplus is got
by calling cash that amount of trade dollars
redeemed and melted into bars. Last year the
Treasury surplus in July and August ranged
from $75,000,000 to $85,000.01)0, as against from
$18,000,000 to $29,000,000 this year, when the
comparison is made on the same basis. While
the deposits in the national bunk depositories
are much larger during the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1887, the circulating medium of the
country will have been increased through the
Treasury operations and otherwise, about
$70,000,000, of which $55,000,000 is not less than
coins of S2O and under.

WHAT CONSTITUTES PUBLICITY.
What the Interstate Commerce Com
mission Says on the Subject.
W ASHINGTON, June 21.—At the meeting
of the Interstate Commerce Commission
this morning the subject of the publication
of the joint tariff being under considera
tion, the following preamble and order were
unanimously adopted and directed to be
sent to all railroad companies, subject to the
“Act to regulate commerce:”
“Whereas, Section 6 of the Act to regu
late commerce, authorizes the commission to
direct when joint tariffs shall be made pub
lic, and to prescribe the measure of pub
licity to be given to the same, it is ordered
as follows: Joint tariffs of rates, fares or
charges, established by two or nmre com
mon carriers for transportation of passen
gersor, freight passing over the continuous
lines or routes, copies of which
are required by the sixth section of the act
to regulate commerce to be filed with the
commission, shall be made public so far as
the same relate to business between points
which are connected by the lines of any sin
gle common carrier "required by the" first
paragraph of said section, to make public
the schedules of its rates. ■The fares and
charges of such joint tariffs shall be so-pub
the same in large type, of at least the size of
ordinary pica, copies of which shall be kept
for the use of the public in such places and
in such form that they ran be conveniently
inspected at every depot or station upon the
line of the carriers uniting in such joint
tariff, and where the business is transacted
in competition with the business of a carrier
whose schedules are required by law to be
made public as aforesaid.”
A CAR COMPANY’S COMPLAINT.
Twenty-five or thirty attorneys were as
sembled this morning in the small room in
which the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion holds its public sittings, when the chair
man announced that the Commission was
ready to hear the arguments in the case of
the Burton Stock Car Company against
several railroad companies. The respond
ents are the Chicago, Burlington and Quin
cy, the Chicago, Rockland and Pacific, and
the Chicago and Alton, the Union Pacific
and the Missouri Pacific, the Lake Shore and
Michigan Southern,the Cleveland. Columbus
Cincinnati and Indianapolis, and Chicago,
Burlington and Northern, and the Chicago,
Milwaukee and St. Paul. The complain
ants were represented by Gen. Benjamin F.
Butler and Charles H. Barbour. The attor
neys for the complainants first addressed the
Commissioner. Mr. Barbour read the com
plaint in full., Its burden is that _the com
panies charge the shipjiers an excess of 188
per cent, for the privilege of shipping cattle
in the Burton cars. Their prayer is that
the companies be restrained from such dis
crimination and over-charge. The Burton
Company claimed the right to present to
the roads their cars for transportation
at the same rates as were charged to ship
pers in the ordinary care and so much thev
believed would lie their right at common
law. They come before the commission

DEFECTIVE AIR BRAKES

the Wounding of a Dozen Others.
Havre de Grace, June 21.—About 6
o’clock this evening the south-bound ex
press train from Philadelphia collided with
the north-bound Congressional express, on
the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore
road. The accident was due to the fact
that the Congressional express was behind
time and passed the signal tower at a high
rate of speed. The signals were all right,
but the engineer says his brakes refused to
work. He reversed the engine, but too late
to prevent a collision. The accident
occurred about 100 yards from
the bridge, where the single track crossing
the bridge switches off info the bridge
forming a “Y.” The fast express struck
the baggage car of the southbound train
just &- it crossed the switch below the depot
and crashed into the parlor car behind, over
turning and completely demaihing two of
them. No one on the northbound train was
hurt, but the southbound train of six cars
was very full of passengers and nearly all
of them were more or less injured. Alex
ander Gantrom, of Washington, D.
C., was instantly killed. He
was in the rear car and was crushed
between two seats, the escaping steam from
the engine scalding him to death. Among
the wounded were T. A. Bland, of
Washington, head scalded: A. Brice of
New York, head, and arm cut; B. N. Baker,
Baltiinore, left leg broken; Rev. J. P. Pendr
har.i, Minneapolis, Minn., shoulder blade
broken and arm fractured: J. M. Wharton,
Baltimore, skull fractured: J. H. McCor
mick, Brooklyn, N. Y., badly scalded; A.
L. Wood, Camden, N. J., seriously hurt
about the head; Rev. Hobart Smith, Balti
more, leg and hand badly cut. There are
many others whose names could not lie as
certained who left as soon as possible.
WERE THE VETERANS INJURED?
A number of the Confederate veterans
from Richmond were on the South-bound
train w hich collided with the Congressional
express at Havre de Grace, and some of
them are said to have been injured, but
nothing could to learned about them, as
they were hurried off to the South.
