Cowed by Moonshiner. Atlanta, Qa., Oct. 13. Seven mem bers of a secret assassination society known as "The Honest Man's Friend and Protector." who were on trial all the past week in the United States dis trict court, were acquitted. The so ciety was formed in the fall of 1889, and had for its members notorious moon shiners whose object was to intimidate United States officials, witnesses and informers. Their first effort was the merciless whipping of one John R. Aiken, who had some time previously , testified against one of their members in a moonshine case, They afterward burned Aiken's house. Numerous other outrages were committed before the United States authorities finally lo cated the criminals, nine of whom were indicted. Two of these turned state's evidence. The jury refused to believe the informers and rendered a verdict of acquittal. The strange contradiction of tins verdict is that Bix colleagues of these same men were tried in the state court for ar.;on under the same evidence, were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.

London, Oct. 13. Further evidence, if such were necessary in support of the argumont that the government should establish more stringeut regulations to protect the cattle which are Bhipped from various parts of the United Slates and Canada to Great Britain, was given upon the arrival at Dundee of the Brit ish steamer Storm King, which sailed from Montreal Sept. 20. The usual heavy weather which prevails at this season of the year was experienced by the Storm King. She had on board 630 head of cattle, stalls for which had been erected between decks and ou the uiuin deck. A heavy sea was encountered and much water shipped, necessit ating the closing of the ventilators leading to the between decks and the battening down of the hatches. This of course, prevented, the air access to the hold and the cattle in the stalls, there were many of them suf focated. The stalls on deck were of the usual flimsy construction, and somo of the seas which boarded the ship tore them to pieces and carried them and the cattle that was in them overboard. Oth ers of the live cargo were so badly in jured by the rolling and pitching of the steamer, it being impossible for them to keep their feet, that it was expedient to kill them to put them out of their ago ny. Out of the total consignment of 630 head of cattle, 152 were lost. The Stanley In a Wreck. Rome; Oct. 111. The Brindisi express train, on board of which were Mr. and Mrs. Henry M.

Census Bnlletla aa the Eitaat of That Industry la th Cnlt4 StaUs Re dacd ra.lon-.s Beceipta lh ! patch Ooea to Piece. Washington, Oct IS. The negotia tions for the commercial treaty between the United States aud Germany have been completed, but under the law they cannot go into effect until Jan. 1, 1813. The proviso under which President Harrison has been acting ia contained in the tariff of 18!K), section B, schedule N, "with a view to securing reciprocal trade with countries producing the ar ticles named therein and for this pur pose," etc. Under this section the pres ident, about Jan. 1, can impose the duty on German boet sugar, which finds ex tensive market here, Germany has been aud probably is anxious to make a treaty, since one bat been made with Spain to allow Cuban sugars and other products to come in. Up to Jan. 1, the United States can do nothing in the matter, but Germany at once sees its advantage in making a treaty now so that it can go into effect on the first of the year. Count Von Mumm began negotiations- with the state department and through Secretary Rusk and General J. M. Foster, acting for the state department, the treaty has been brought to a successful comple tion. It was signed last month at Sar atoga, whin General Foster and Count Von Mumm paid an unexpected and hurried visit to that place when Presi dent Harrison was there as the guest of Mr. Arkell. The papers at that time mixed General Foster up with Secre tary Foster, and made the visit appear as one to consult on bonds. One pro viso in the treaty, which has prevented the publication of Hie treaty and which will delay the promulgation of the full contents, is that Germany claims the right to first announce the signing and promulgation of the treaty. At present German beet sugar comes into the country free under the new , tariff law, and nothing can prevent it until Jan. 1 , when the president is given power to shut it off, on the ground that Germany iuiiiotes duties on agricultural and other products of the United States which, in view of freo introduction of sugar, etc., into the United States, he deems to be reciprocally . unequal and unreasonable, and therefore he suspends by proclamation the provision granting free entry of German sugar. ; Just at this time, Germany with its short wheat crop, finds that a free entry of its cereals from the United States will be benelicial and besides she must have a Diarkut for her enormous beet sugar output. The majority of her exports it W TTaton fas; tii Tu nt tint? ysilU!! itui turn soia hng into Ameea frs will low Ger mCT her fcttt mtrkst, mi to she is obliged, to save herself, io make the present agreement with the United States. Range Cattle Industry. Washington, Oct. 13. The census office issued a bulletin containing statis tics of the range cattle industry in the United States, not including cattle on farms. The bulletin Fays that since the census ot 1880 great changes have taken place in the industry of range cattle. Lare ureas once used as ranges are now inclosed as farms and the cattle are driven to new and dis tant feeding grounds. A large portion of Texas, Colorado, Oregon, Washington and California, one third of Kansas and one half of Nebraska have been con verted into farms during the last de cade. Owing to the difficulty in exactly de fining the lines Of range and farm stock and to avoid duplications, only the stock known to be outside of that taken as farm stock is included in the tables of thici bulletin. It is found that in June. 190, there were upon the ranges 5l7,l.'8 horses, 5,4i?;i mules 14,109 assesor burros, 6,8!f,188 cattle. 6,070, D0I sheep and 17,270 swine, with sales of horses in 1809 amounting in value to f 1.418,205; of cattle, $17,013,712; of sheep, 12,609,603; of swine, $27,132. fcThe total number of n.en reported on ranges in charge of stock is 15,390. The industry is found to bo more generally prosper ous at this time than for several years previous. The .Methodist. Washington, Oct. 13 The afternoon session of the ecumenical conference was devoted to essa s on the roligious press and the religious uses of the secu lar press. Rev. H. P. Hughes of the London Mission Wesleyan Methodist church, was the essayist of the after noon. He spoke of the origin and ob scurity of the press and of its gigantio growth. The earliest English journal, tie said, was a small pamphlet printed in the time of James I. He spoke of the enterprise of the great journals and the expense connected with it and the profits of journalism. The religious press, he said, should work for Christ and not for gain. Newspapers, he ad ded, have an ambition to influence pub lic opinion. Every editor has opinions and endeavors to convince his readers to his way of thinking. The power of journalism when used on the right side is iinmirse. Religious journalism ought not identify itself with politics, bnt should hiM aloof from tolitieal bonds, so it could regard all questions from a religious standpoint. In con clusion, he said the church had learned much from eecular journalism and hoped they would learn much more from them, and if united, conld do much toward hastening the building of that city of justice, puiity and piety in which there would be no room for sin or misery.

To a correspondent who visited Allen at th in"rmary he said: ''I was the first to auvocate giving to each man 160 acres of land. I urged it for years, traveled over many states and addressed many legislatures. I also urged setting aside lands for the sup port of the schools and churches. The substance of what I preached was incor porated eventually into the homestead law passed in lt-6L While traveling about urging this plan I spent the for tune I made in trade $50,000. In t hose days we had no railroads in the west, and I went about in my own wagon. On each side of my wagon I had caused to be painted the words; 'Land Bill Allen. f The letters that Superintendent Filler is receiving now from every state east of the Mississippi doubtless come from people who attended some of my meeting," lirewer' Convention.

Mr. Clark in turn will call up on Assistant General Manager Smith to lighten his burden, while lieorge Gould will represent his father in the east and Edwin Gould will give his personal attention to the coal properties in which his futher is so largely interested.
