A Gigantic Scheme Which "Wits Con

Louisvn.i.n , Oct. 23. The Times pub
lishes an Interesting column concerning the
northwestern conspliacy attcm pt of the con
federate government during the war to rc-
uasc southern prisoners In the north , enlist
into active service the sons of liberty and
antl-Uncolnltcs , copperheads , etc. , through
out Ohio , Indiana and Illinois In a gigantic
attornpS to create a diversion , which would
relieve the pressure upon the atmyattho
front. The active operations were in charge
ot.Judge. Thomas 11. Hlnes , with John Cas-
tleman asehlef adviser. This episode In the
secret history of war times has been forced
Into public notice by current rutides
from all ( matters on war topics , and the dc-
lalls are mainly taken from papers In the
liands of ex-Chief Justice nines , of Ken-
lucky. The success of tlio conspiracy waste
to have been largely dependent upon a very
largo class In the north who were dissatisfied
witii the admlnlsttatlon , The story Involves
a scheme to capture the only gunboats on the
lakes , attack Chicago , release theconlcdeiato

ATLANTA , Ga. , Oct 2) . Fulton County
jail Is full of Illicit distiller * . KUhty men
ate in thu jall-jard and others have been dis
tributed out to the jails In Cobb ami other
adjoining counties. There are 3JO cases of
revenue violations on the docket of the
United States distiict court. This shows a
wonderful revival In the manufacture of
Illicit whisky In almost every county In the
slate. It Is due to the fact that prohibition ,
having closed the baitooms and cut olT the
foreign supply , has created an excellent
homo matket for Georgia-made whisky.
People who aio well-to-do , or who have
drinking habits , send abroad lor their lliiuor ,
but the poor whllo man and Hie negro buy
from the wagon which may bu so olten seen
around the coiner. As an exnmplu of how
tills work Is carried on It may bo
slated that a wagon laden with
apples will start out fiom Uaonn county and
willbohoaid fiom as far south as Wilkus ,
having crossed mountains and stieams
through lUbcrsham , Franklin and Oglu-
thorpu counties Ot course , the pi ice of ap
ples would not nay for thu tiip through one
of these counties. It Is out ot thu Illicit
whisky hidden under the apples that the
thrifty tanner mak s his money. Thu gov
ernment distilleries also enjoy the boom ,
'they are free trom the esphmago ot thu rev
enue olllccrs and can pick out a betler cla s
of customers than can tlio illicit distillers.
The men to whom they sell could not atfoid
to stand up In their communities as in-
formcis , and hence the government distiller
has absolute Immunity.
Tim question winch is now occasionally
asked , and which may jet assume huge pto-
pottions , Is , Mould it not be better to take
iway all goveinment protection tiom tliu
liquor Inteicst bv a complete abolition of the
luvenuo laws , which would destioy tlio
liiinur maikct by glutting it. The answer lo
tins question may open up an via of tree
whisky as opposed to no whisky.

White Men Force Negroes to Ucvcal
Sccrois by Violence.
Jr.FKr.uso.v , Tex. , Oct. 2i The colored
peculation of the adjoining county , Cas are
In a state of gtcat excitement over a Knklux
raid made on them at Doiulasvllle the other
night. The trouble arose from the recent or-
ganl/ation of a secret society among tne col
ored men , the alms and objects of which aiu
a profound mystery to the white population.
It seems that sevei.il months ago a negro
from Little liock appeared among thu .set
tlers , initiating about tvventy-llvo bundled
negroes 1 n Cass and Marlon counties In the
mxsturles of tills now order. The rcpait dually
gained curiency that the mysterious society
wasorgani/ed for tlip assassination ot ob
noxious white planters , and driving them out
of the country oy burning their property and
woirylng them until they were willing to
sell out at a heavv sucillice. Another lepmt ,
which was traced to a ceitaln coloied wo
man , ch.uged that the new sec lety was a ni
hilistic omanizatlon. and that on a certain
day the negroes weie going to rise en masse
and kill the while planters and seize their
cr.ips. This report tintlier alleged that the
names of ceitain doomed white planters had
been voted upon and were placed on what
was termed the death roll. This death loll
was said to bo kept In an iron box In the
house of one of the officers of the new so
ciety who ll\rd out In the outskirts of
Douglasvllle. These rumors of the comini ;
assassination glow so troqucnt and wido-
spiead that hundreds , of white families were
alaimed. The women became nervous on
thu subject. Sunday night about twenty
masked liorscmea'cntered Dougl.isville dui-
lug a church meeting In the evenintr , and at
the point of their shotguns matched four of
tliu leading ofhceiaof the new secret societv
to the house where the lion box was kept.
Theyfoiccd the negiocsto open the box ,
ami tlinn catefully examined Iho con
tents , looking for the alleged death-
icll. No such document was tonnd , but
many papers weroin the box bearing lists of
names ot colored mun at homo In other
counties. Although the fournegio leaders
weio kicked , cull'cd and beaten witii gun-
b.inels , they persistently refused to tell the
objects of'tlio riWslcrkms ; society. Tlielr
papers were all leturncil to the lion box , and
thu masked i alders left the village battled in
their laid. Tlio wllito citizens at Douglas
vllle. Qneen'Oity ; Atlanta and Linden have
since held mewtmgsYuid denounced the out-
lage , which has-sepvcil .soiiiewhat to allay
the excitement among the ncsioes , who vow
veiiL'c.uico if.nny further attempt to pry into
their private affairs is made. Cass county
has a population ot 20,000 , nearly two-third ?
of them are black. Any trouble between
blacks and whitesun that section would re
sult suiiously. '
The Episcopal Convention.
CHICAGO , Oct. 22. At the session of the
Protestant Episcopal church the committee
on the general theoloiilcal seminary re
ported that the contributions for the past
thtee years exccedcil three hundred thousand
dollars , bv tar the lar o t amount ever ic-
ceived within a like period. The coni'iiitteo
on marrhieo and divorce recommended
changes in the canon on this subject , which
will be discussed to-morrow. The Amir'can
church building fund commission 10ported
that it had aided 101 churches to build dur
ing the year. The joint houses then met as
a boaid of missions , and It was decided to
establish two missions ami bishops for
the same , Nevada and Utah to boons , and
W\ online and Idaho the other.
The board , adopting tliu Ideas of Bishop
McLaren and others , declined to Intelfcic in
the management of thu woman's anxiliaiy.
The bninlnir question In legislation for mis-
siona'y work appropriations for domestic
missions was then taken up. The boaid of
managers had reduced the nppropiiatlons for
tliu current quarter 0 uer cent on
domestic work and 9 per cent on the
toiclgn. Lack of money was the. reason
assigned. Finally a lesolutlon of sym-
ratify with the board of managers
In their financial perplexity was passed ,
and then , by a vote , or 6" > to S3 , It was agreed
that the appropriations tor the remainder of
tills year should not bo reduced. The boaid
of manasrers were ordered to icstoro tlieap-
piopriatlons to thu old basis. The boaid
elected H. Fulton Cutting , ot Now York ,
tieasurer. On the board of managers Kev.
Win. Lawrence , of Massachusetts , and
Jumps M. Blown , of New York , weio
clinson In place of JJuv. Dr. Schouck , de
ceased , and Cutting was nmdn tieasuier
The boaid then adjourned sine die.
