weighs IS tons. On this column rests
the head, weighing 4 tons, in which a
steel polar axis. 10 feet long and twelve

tapering to OS inches at each end, and
weighs over four tons. The driving
clock and balcony for the assistant as
tronomer is reached by a spiral staircase
on the south sitle of the column. The
center of motion is .57 feet above the
base and when the telescope is pointed

Owing to the immense quantity of lish

between the. two places, some seventy-live

left the Orange Grove House of lie.uge
and about noon arrived at the inlet.
TIu sharks were unusual! v thick, but

A STRUGGLE IN SUGA '.i

b"r of people went to the capital yester
day to ntUnd the anarchists heating, but
as the court room is .'mall, only about
one hundred and fifty got in and several
hundred jailed to get admission. The
proceedings v.vr:: very solemn. All the
judges paid c lose attention to arguments
nrodueed and several of them inter
rupted th : attorneys to ask
council made an interesting picture.
Den Dutler was there in line broad cloth,
swallow tail coat, broad shirt front and a
very !ine button hole boquet. Next to
him sat Roger A. Fryor and Randolph
Tucker. Desidc these sat Captain Dlack
and Salmon, the Chicago lawyers. At
the other end of the table sat Attorney
General Hunt, of Illinois, State's Attorney
Grinnell and assistant, all three very plain
matter-of-fact looking men.
Randolph Tucker made the first argu
ment and one thrt surprised those of his
old friends who were present. He has
always been an extreme state's rights m;:n,
but yesterday claimed that the fourteenth
amendment to t'ua federal constitution
virtually makes the supremo court the
guardian of fdl the rights and privileges
i.f every citizen in till the states and con
fcrs upon it the power to practically re
view all license in state courts.
Attorney General Hunt answered in a
clear, calm, plain argument, which was
highly intere.-ting, and was considered
equal to the defensive argument. The
catire afternoon was taken up in lengthy
Inventor Edison's Method of Fun.
A rcjiorter casually met Air. Edison this
week, and ho happened to be in more than
his usually jolly mood and by the way ho is
apparently in the ruddiest health and best of
spirits. To the inquiry if he had anything
new Mr. Edison replied:
"Yes, I have made a fresh discovery of no
little imjiortanee a great advance in electric
art tested its practicability and realized suc
cess; but I will not name it now. Hereto
fore when I have invented or discovered
something and published its details the scien
tific pajjers have soon after teemed with an
nouncements of anticipations, prior experi
ments, hints about 'piracy and stolen thunder,
etc. According to these I have never pro
duced a prototype, nothing but ioor, miser
able little antityivs. Xow, this timi I'm going
to have some fun v.-i1h the boys. My new dis
covery is fully recorded, but I will not pub
lish it for six months! You may give this
formal notice, so that the bibliophiles and
prior inventors may have the lirst chance, j
with lots of time to get the laugh on me. j

it as a 'mystery' tor six months. Jt,
meantime, no claimant appears with a full

The Canes of tlio Dudes.
The canes of the dudes take on wondrous
forms. Ed Knox, who went over to London
this summer, told me something about it the
other day. The stick itself is nothing. It may
1h3 baruboo, rattan or witch hazel. But the
head is the thing. The real English fashion is to
have tho head so large-anil so odd that no
one else can have anything like it. These
heads are of carved and stained ivory or
silver. Representations of crocodiles' heads,
clcphants' heads, turbaned Turks, swarthy I
negroes, dogs, horses, birds and rabbits are j
all brought into use.
One car.e made in London for a special I
?7ev.-York order is the head of a menkr of ;
the Old Guard with his bear skin cap. It is !
of silver. Another is a globe with a map cf :
the world, and still another is a cigarette and I
match box combined. Among horseman the j

by an I'tigliKli Kitilwuy Journal Utile
Fifty years ao third cJa-ss i;as.senfrs were

;a:i!S iIltt.rial, and udniittin- free currents
of wind an. I air, to tlio discomfort of t'ao un-
! fortunate travelers. I ho jassenord for tho
various intermediate ttations wero put into
s parato compartments and the doors locked.
Tiio clear length of i-ach compartm-'iit ou

widtii 4 fef t 4Yt inches, c a-eh seat being 15
leches m width. Stout pa-singers had some
diiiiculty in squeezing through tho doors.
which wero only IS inches u ide. TLo first
glazed and ineh fed second class carriage that
ever ran upon a railway was i:i tho lir.-t ex
press train that ran between London and Ex
eter. Tho journey was made i:i five hour,
and the performance was regarded as nno i f
tho marvela of railway traveling. Today
there aro in tho United Kingdom about ."t,
OOy carriages, many of which aro fitted with
tho luxuries and beauties of a drawing room,
and even tho third class are more comfort
able than tho first of fifty years ago.
X'ot only are most of these carriages com
fortably and conveniently arranged, but tho
safety of those woo use tumi j.s increased b'
appliances which wero not, even dreamt of by
our railway forefathers. Oc tho total rail
way carriages 91 per cent, aro now fitted
with continuous brakes, while!) I p-r cent, of
the dowsdo lino of the country is worked on
tue absolute blocK system.
TfCtvETS AND IlA'tGAGi:.
The method of issuing tickets fifty years
ago was very dilrereat from that now in us
From the earliest liiu.-.s of railway traveling
tin' tlato was required ta bo written on tho
ticket, as well as the amount of fare and the
timo of tho train by which tho passenger was
to start. These particulars had to bo entered
on a counterfoil in th" hook of tickets.
mo arrangements lor luggage wero tie
light fully simple. ''Each passenger's luggago
will," said the time bill, "as far as practicable,
be placed on the roof of tho coach i;i which
he has taken his place; carpet bags and small
luggage may bo placed underneath tho seat
opposite to that which tho owner occupies."'
A capital arrangement for securing punctual
attendance was tho announcement:
"Passengers intending to join tho trains at
any of tho stopping places are desired to bo
in good time, as the train will leave each
station as boon as ready, without reference to
the time stated in the tables, tho main object
being to perform tho whole journey as expe
ditiously as possible. Passengers will bo
booked only conditionally upon there being
room on tao arrival of tho trains, and they
will ravo the preference of seats in the order
in which they aro booked. Ko persons are
booked after the arrival of the train. All
persons aro requested to get on and alight
from tho coaches invariably on the left bide.
as the only certain means of preventing acci
dents from trams passing in an opposite di
rection." NO SMOICIXG ALLOWED.
What would modern travelers snv to the
"Xo smoking allowed in the station houses
or in any of tha coaches, even with tho con
sent of the passengers. A substantial break
fast may ba had at tho station house at Bir
mingham by parties going by the early train,
but no person is allowed to sell liquors or eat
ables of any kind upon the line. The com
pany earnestly hope that tha public will co
operate with them m enforcing this regula
tion, as it will bo tho means of removing a
cause t f delay and will greatly diinink-h tho
chaiica of accident."
Tho engines in use on tho Stockton and
Darlington line in 1.7 weighed about twclvo
tons, and had li.V.j inch cylinders and a piston
stroke of 15 inches. Ths tiuve p dr.? of wheels
were each 4 feet in diarei?rcr, an-1 t ho pressure
of steam varied from H:i pounds to GJ pounds.
Many of the engines had only four wheels,
and ii was considered a great step in advance
when bix wheel engines were placed on tho
railway-", the argument in t-ia';- favcr being
that, if by air-' accident oiiv; i f tho six wheels
broke, the e.:gino would sr;!l remain erect,
while if one of the four c-k2;;j.s1 t!. j result
would be the downfall of th .- lee.-K-iotivo. Ou
the Birmingham and Derby j:;:ietio;i line tho
engines wjighed ten tons ten hundredweight,
and tao two driving whe-'ia wero 5 feet 6
inches, and the four carrying wheels 3 feet 6

theso engines is, however, tho adoption of tho
