Atlanta, December 21—Illicit whisky la getiln? ▼cry plenty at thin Christmas season. Every uUlit for the ] AHt two weeks successful raids on stills have been inode by the revenue officers. To-night five raids &ro arranged for. A peculiar case is that of William Butee, deputy revenue collector, who last night arrested his nephew, Ijiil'.tyctte Bui»c, f.,r ill:, it ili-tillm/. '1 In* arrest was luado in Forsyth county. A 65-gsllon still and 1.200 gallons of beer were captured. La- Fayctto is now in Folton jail. Deputy Marshal Chisolm captured a still Saturday night, near Kllijay, Gilmer county. About 1,000 gallons of beer wan destroyed. Deputy Marshal Grant the »*ame night raptured two stills iu one house. A man named Smith, who lived lu the house, was arrested and la now in Ful- ton jail. One of the stills Is very sma 1, being only ten gallons. Collector Crenshaw is going to haTe it burnished up and set up in his office os a trophy aud ornament. Five barrels of brandy were brought lu to-day from Dawson county. They w ere the property of of David M. Hurt, lie was a licensed fruit distiller. Houu'timo ago ho was caught selling corn liquor. When Officers McAfee aud Merrit went to arrest him ho attempted to cut tbt tie?.# of the latt. with a large, sharp knife Under the law, a licensed distiller caught selling liquor other than that he is licensed to sell, his still and stock, licensed, are fiseated. The five barrels that came to-day, wen confiscated by the government from Mr. Burt. Nat Towell, of H*U county, was brought here to day, and lodged In Jail tinder commitment from the United States commlaslcner at Gainesville, for -violating n-vonue laws. M ). Abels, of Paulding county,committed by the lissionerat Cartcrsville, for violating revenue laws, found quarters to-day In Fulton Jail. John Lumpkin, of Walker, and Alex Hopper, of Murray, were lodged lu Fulton jail to-day, under commitment by the Dalton United States commis sioner for illicit work. One of the Survivors. Ati.hsta, December 22.—Mr. Charley ton, who was hurt in the big wreck, till a* the Ivey street hospitn’. Ho is in a terrible condition. His palate was so scorched that he cannot eat. Uls scalded hands hands have swollen almost to tbo size of hia head. From tbo waist up be cannot bear tlio tenderest touch. He is still In bed but cannot move. Mr. Bob Jones asked bim if he did not want to sco a preacher to-day. He said: -No. Do you think little burns like these will kill a man. I won’t give up. I am not going to die.” Belton's fortitnde is marvelous. He hardly winces when hi* fearful wounds are dressed. Tbo other men at the hospital, wounded not half so bad aa be, yell like Comanche* when their scald* are at tended to. Belton says he wishes to live just for one thing— to whip the engineer who refuted to let him climb Into his engine to warm after he had been almost baked on that cold and fatal morning. houn's oountlug the vetea and declaring the result tbu prohibition election held the ‘25th ultimo. Immediately upon the verbal announcement of tbo judge's opinion, Ordinary Calhoun, who had already canvaaaed the votes and had ready the paper declaring the result, signed it in tho court room. When court met this morning Hr. Julias L. Brown concluded his argument for the plaintiff, which closed the case. At once Judge Clarke deliv ered bis opinion, which la as follows: Gentlemen:—As yon know I have listened most had no reason to presume that they desired to en- tho count end cousolldotlon before tho first re straining order had been burned by Judge UcCay, and that all he bad to do after the dissolving of the injunction, was to affix his name to the paper de claring the result, which he did as soon as the Judge announced his decision. It was true hie action was very prompt, but there had been uunuh delays, and it was time the people had tho result of the election declared.

It la an e emenury ( sr aide of tbe street ••BaU thought one of them Hsduond, Congressman from this district, intro duced a most important measure. It Is a bill to -Iteve from taxatiou all alcohol used in medicines and tbe mechanic arts. Among the Atlanta drugglsta who urged upon Mr. Hammcud the importance of the measure Is Mr. Walter A. Taylor, who said this morning: Yes; I .wrote to Colonel Hammond in reference to the bill, and In common with the druggists of Atlanta, am glad to know that he has introduced and will push the meaaure." 'Aa to the Importance of the bill?" I regard it a most important measure. We do not think that alcohol used In various medicines and in ths mechanic arts should U taxed u It is in liquors used merely as a beverage. Alcohol, you know,| is in wide use as an Ingredient in medi cines. There is hardly one in a thousand adminis tered to patients into which alcohol does not enter ingredient It tensed in morphine, quinine and other medicines too numerous to mention. It is also used extensively in hair oils, perfumes of all kinds, and In all varieties of cologne, also lu pa tent medicines. It is the great preservative in drug stores. Its wide use by photographers and Jewel ers, and in the veriou* mechanical arte is likewise well known. Alcohol thus used is now taxed jnst as alcobol used In liquors as a beverage la taxed?" "la it taxed now?" “Yea: with a single exception; alcohol used in medical colleges as a preservative of dead bodies is free of taxation. The importance of relieving from taxation alcohol used In medicines and tho mechan ic arte cannot be over-estimated." "As to the good effects of the passage of such a measure?" “They will bo great. We think it unquestionably wrong to tax alcohol used for the purposes above pointed out the same aa alcohol per «r, or where U enters Into liquors, etc., used merely as a beverage. The passage of auch a measure, while it would be an act of justice, would have the effect to benefit both drngggists and people. It would unquestion ably have the effect of cheapening all the medi cines into which alcohol enters aa an ingredient, and would also cheapen ths price of everything turned out by the mechanic arts Into which alcohol enters. It is plain that the bill Is a wise ‘ and it te to be hoped that it will become a law.’ THE LARGEST STILL. Captured Christmas Eve Night in Chero kee-Traveling liar room*. Atlakta, December 26.—Collector Crenshaw says that nearly every day he receives a telegram from some one of bla deputies or other person, inform ing him of wagons going through the county ped dling illicit liquor. Moat of the oomplaints and in* formation come from big counties. To-day a tele gram waa received from Washington, Ga., saying that a wagon was there with 175 gallons of peach and apple brandy, upon which revenue stamps were. There were two stamps that did not bear ganger's marks or name; and that waa the reason Mr. Crenshaw waa notified. He could do nothing bul order, In csss of sale, that tbe goods bo held until an investigation aa to the two stamps could bo made. There seems to be nothing in prohibition laws to prevent the aale of liquor. It can only defeat the county and State of the liquor tax. Were it not for the United States revenue officers ths traffic would virtually be without hindrance from the State ex cept an enormous expense which tho State could not afford, and which the tax-payers would not tol* c.tote. It Is sn unwholesome state of affairs wh&re State passes such lawa as it cannot enforce, relies on the Federal government for their enforce ment. Deputy Colloctor McAfee, assisted by several oth ers, made a successful raid Christmas eve night. He captured the largest still yet taken, destroyed 4,0)0 gallons of beer, and confiscated fifty gallons of corn liquor, and arrested three men. Tbe still waa found near Moore's mill. In Cherokee county. Malone Ont on lloml. Atlakta. Doc. 26.—Tho Will Malone case waa heard before Judge Rkhrrd Clark at 10 o'clock this morning.

Upon this evidence, without going into tho case on Us merits. Judge Clark stated that bs would at once discharge Mr. Malece from custody.
