L OXGS TllEET ON PROTECTION.
General Longstreet, one of the best
and bravest of men, a true and sincere
friend of the South, has written a con
gratulatory letter to II. Clay Evans, re
publican congressman elect from tin
Chattanooga, Tenn., district, wherein h
expresses not only his own sentiment
but those of the leading men of the New
South. He said in substance:
"Chattanooga is the center pioneer ol
the New South, and, being one of th;
tirst cities to elect a republican congress
man pledged to the protection of
American liberty and American indus
tries, she has laid out a path to indus
trial supremacy that her sister cities
would do well to imitate.
Our party has to see that Mr. Evans
and every man who is fairly elected,
shall take his seat. If there were more
'bobtailcrs' in the executive chairs of
the southern states, there would be less
complaint about a suppressed vote. But
for the Morrill tariff of l;sGl, Chattanno
oga would now be in swaddling clothes.
Nothing is so timid and cautious ns I

But iron and steel is not the only in

This makes a total of l,:!,)0 paid to
H.N.V) m n every two weeks, or a grand
total every year of $;l:l,:i:i..000. This,
it must be remembered, is the number of
men employed and wages paid in a single
county. Leave these industries unpro
tected and what would be the result?
We do not care to contemplate it.
Thanks to the vote of an enlightened
people, there is no danger of having to
consider it for a long time to come, if
F:--'These are not infant industries,
but they no less need the protection they
now enjoy. And there are more indus
tries, that could make a proportionate
showing if protected in the same way;
70,000 men could be employed inthctin
plate industry alone and its tributary in
dustries were it adequately protected,
receiving upward of $40,000,000 annually
in wages, and keeping in this country
many millions which now go to England
for tin plate and freight.
A word more. In spite of the enor
mous wages paid in the industries men
tioned the price of the commodity is not
increased one particle. If tin plate were
manufactured in this country the price to
the consumer would not be enhanced in
the least; on the contrary, severe compe
tition would tend to lower prices. Such

A Dog's Suicide.

by jumping olf a ferryboat. Tho owner,
an old woman, asked a policeman to dtv

but ::s soon as the boat started tho dog
junv.K-d for the deck, and, by a great

bcaid. Then he ran through the women's

WRITING BY TELEGRAPH.
Kl!ha Grnr'a Invention fnr Sendlns Iv-t-(cm
Electricity is the gi.l genius of this
century. Those who know most about
it say that what we have dono with it
in the past is but a ti ille compared
with w hat w e may hope to do w ith it
in the future. Tin -re are people who
exjK'tt someday to bo able to call a
distant friend by wire, see his imago
in a mirror, hear his voice, and, if de
sired, get his exact signature to a sub
scription paper or a check.
These things may all come. At
present wo get along with an inter
mittent and exasj)crating repetition of
tho voice over the wire, having no
means of determining the identity of
our interlocutor, no certainty of get

cases ordei-s to buy or sell goods or
securities have been repudiated by

faulty telephonic transmission would
ElislmGray, tho well known Illinois
inventor, recently patented a device to
insure accuracy and accountability
over the electric wire. Tho sentler of
a message can write it out at his desk,
anel an exact reproduction of tho writ
ing will bo inaclo at tho other end of
the circuit. There have been previous
attempts at transmitting fac-snniles of
writing, but inventions which de
pended upon a variation in the in
tensity of tho current or upon revolv
ing cylinders proved unsatisfactory.
Mr. Gray's device consists of two
current interrupters at the sending end
anel a pair of electro motors at the re
ceiving end. The sender uses either
pen or pencil, near the point of which
aro attached two threads running at
right angles to each other. These
threads are kept at an even tension
automatically, and each ono passes to
a current interrupter set into the tele
graphic circuit. When tho pen moves
to tho right tho current is broken a
great number of times for a small
movement. When it moves to the left
the current is reversed and is similarly
interrupted. The same arrangement
prevails on the movement of the pen
up anel down. The writer can write
or sketch as rapidly and as freely as if
ho had no telegraphic attachment.
At the receiving end there arc two
electro magnets fitted with rods set at
right angles to each other, so pivoted
as to give any motion desired to the
pen which they carry at their inter
section. When a series of breaks in
the current is caused by a motion of
the sending pen to the right, the mag
net draws tho lateral rod also to tho
right. Similarly upward motion is
given by the vertical rod. Left hand
ed or downward strokes of the sending
pen are reproduced by the receiving
pen in tho same manner. Conse
quently every motion inaclo on tho
paper at one end of the wire is copied
with faultless exactness at the other
end. When the pen is taken off or a
new line is begun an automatic device
operates wiih the same result on the

The Pine Tree State.
Tlio assertion has frequently been
made that the title i4Pine Tree State"
ha3 become a misnomer for Maine,
and, although there are lots of pine
trees still standing in the northern
part of the state, there is some ground
for objection to the old time sobriquet.
The statistics of the amount of pine
lumber surveyed at tho port of Bangor
yearly show that tho cut of that kind
of timber on the Penobscot has fallen
oil' from 123,000,000 feet in 1853 to
1'0, 000,000 in 1S87. In tho four .years
from IS53 to 1S57 thero was a falling
oil' in the pine survey of 47,000,000
feet, and in 1S77, twenty years later,
pine had got down to 15,000,000 feet.
The total survey of pine at this port
from 1S55 to 1SS7, inclusive, was
i. 510.000,000 feet, or considerably less
than one-half of the spruce survey,
and about three times the cut of hem
loci:, juniper, etc. Pine used to lead
all other kinds of lumber, but now
spruce heads the list. In 1S55 the pine
survey was 1"3,000,000 feet, the spruce
78,000,000 feet, but during tho war
spruce took tho lead, and theso two
kinds of lumber gradually changed
places, until now the cut of spruce
averages 120,000,000 feet, or four times
the output of pine. Nearly all of our
large near by pine has been cut, and
most of the logs now driven down the
Penobscot are tccond growth. There
is plenty of big nine away to tho north,
but in the face of western and Cana
dian competition in tho 'caeliug mar
kets it would hardly pay to cut it and
dri ve il long distances. Spruce is king
on the Penobncot, and all other Maine
rivci-s now, and this is really more of
a spruce tree slate than anvthing else.
