Significant Figures From the

Grand Island, Neb., Dec. 5. The
Campaign in the loa! sugar factory
will close about Christmas, and will
this year break ail previous records as
to the tons of beets consumed and out
put of sugar. Uver a week ago the
5,000,000 pound mark was passed. Last
year tho factory closed down on beets
on December 28, at which time it had
only 5,000.000 pounds manufactured.
The campaign began about a month
earlier this year. The following
figures will give an idea of the pro
gress the industry is matting:
In 1890 there were produced 736,000
pjunds of sugar from 5,000 tons of
beet, for which the farmers were
paid $20,000. In 1891 1.400,000 pounds
from 11,500 tons of beets, for wbicn
the farmers were paid 146,000. In
1892 2,100,000 pounds from 13,000 tons
of beets, for which the farmers were
paid 852.000. In 1893 I,8i5,0u0 pounds
from 12,0(0 tons of beets, Jer which
the farmers we.e paid $70,000 In
1894. beets shipped to Norfolk, 14,000
tons, for which tho farmers were paid
$70,000. In 1895 300,000 pounds from
35,000 tons of beets, for which the
farmers were paid $175,000.
This year the output of sugar wiil
certainly border close on 6,300,000,
while the to'il tonnage will be at out

fifty years after the morning on which
Marshall picked up the pioneer nugret

be adequately portr:3-ed in one big
parade. The committee will raise a
fund of $50,000 for the purpoS?. In an
address issued to Calif n .a people
the committee says:
"The discovery of eold by Marshall
on the American river J inuary 21,
1848. virtually created the great and
grand ttate of California, and should
be honored to tho full by all Califur
nians for that reasoi. At the present
time it is particu a. h advisable that
California should remind the world
that it still holds the record as the
gold-producing state of Americi, with
a product of $1,300,0 )tj,00i, and give
the world at large an opportunity to
learn that the state contain mineral
riches which will keep it in ihe front
rank for an indefinite nu Lber of ynirs.
"California as a state and San t an

Karly In the Year The Sentence Had
No Apparent Terror for the Murderer
Answered the Customary tjuestloun
Without Kvidenre of Emotion.
New Yoke, Dec. 3. Martin Thorn,
convicted on Monday of the murder of
VVi.liaiii Guldensuppe, was today sen
leuced to be electrocuted in the week
beginning J inuary 10, 1S98.
When Thorn was brought into court
in Long Island City he stepped as
briskly, walking between two officers,
as he had done on the days when he
was on triJ. He preserved the same
cairn, imperturbable expression of
countenance that he bad worn during
the ti ial. and when, hs a preliminary
to toe announcing of the senteuce of
death'. Justice Maddox put the custo
mary questions to him he responded
promptly, collectedly and wiihoutout
wai d evidence of emotion.
"My true name," said the murderer,
"is Torceswisky. I was born in Ger
mart thirty-five years ago. I am a
barber and have never been in prison
before. I was brought up in the re
ligious belief of tho Roman Catholic
church. I can read and write. My
father is living. I am not married."
Then Jude Maddox proceeded to
pass sentence solemnly and impres
sively. He said:
"Thorn, you wore indicted, charged
wilh having premeditated and de
liberately designed and caused the
death of Wil.iam Guldensuppe. You
have hud a f .it- trial in the courts, in
which you were defended by the able-t
and most a-tute counsel. They could
not have done much more for you.
Eveiy e:Tort was made by them to
save you. Afier that tho jury found
you j; uilty of ruur Jer in the first degree.
and tho fixed punishment for th..t
is death. Reflect upon it. Reflect
npoa the death of him whom you slew.
It is the duty of the court to fix a
time for the execution the law pro
nounced the punishment. I shall give
you a reasonable time, the law permits
mo to do that. It is needless for me
to i-tattt anything to you touching the
fae's in this case, more than to say
thai tho evidence justifies the verdii-t.
"The judgment of thei court is tha-,
uu shail be taken heLice to the state
prison at Sing Sing within a reasona
ble lime, and that there you shall be
executed in the form prescribed bv
law in the week beginning January
Thorn listened without moving a
muscle and whwt the judge had tir-i.-hed
he inclined his head slightly
forward, as if bowing to the court.
Tho pr.souer's lawyers then handed
up an affidavit applying for an appeal.
Justice Maddox ;ook the affidavit and
will pass on it later. Thorn was then
led to th s jail below.

The dimensions are: Cylinder, 38
feet 2 inches in diameter and 9d feet
in length; length of forward cone, 50
feet; length of ufter cone, 45 feet; total
length, 15S fet. It occupies 106.000
cubio feet of space. The profiling
power is a 1)5 ho:-se-p:w e:- naphtha
engine. .The cylinder, engine and
every part of the machine, so far us
practicable, is made of aluminum.
The r-hip now - weighs about 5,000
pounds, and wiil carry more than a
ton weight of provisions and passen
gers. The naphtha for the engin.; is
stored in cases which -will hold enough
to drive the ship around the earth
without-replenishing the tanks. The
skin of tho rhip is double and filled
with hydrogen gas. It is confined in
separate compartments and in the
upper pnri of the vessel and in the
cones. Upward from the stern of the
ve-t"jl pioj.jots a tail like rudder,
wbicn diivcis the ship up or down as a
bird. Under ii is a rudder which
changes the course from right to left.
Motive power is secured by the big

by the naphtha engine. The letter
says the ship has l:ave;ed f.om the

Flying Muchine Experiment.
Mount Holly, N. J., Dec. 3. The
experiment with the flying maching
by Prof. Lmgley, of New York City,
on the Lumberton ' an 3 Medford
railroid, yesterday, was to a certain
extent successful, although there was
no ascent made, the machine being at
tached to a small hand-c r, such as
are used by railroad construction
gangs. On top of the car was a gaso
line engine of s'x horse power, which
operated a pair of fans about eight
feet in length. The framework of the
fans was of wood, and t was covered
with heavy muslin. The gasoline en
gine caused these fans to make about
400 revolutions per minute. The car,
fully equipped and carrying four men,
weighed over two tons, and when the
fans were running at top speed the
car was forced along the track at a
speed of fully five miles per hour,thus
demonstrating under adverse condi
tions the claims of the in ventor. .It is
proposed to make another test in a
day or two, when even more favorable
results are expected.
Prof. Langley was accompanied on
the trip by J. E. Watkins, of the
Smithsonian Institute, and Assistant
Superintendent Antrim, of the Penn
