Once on a time the g e. p.
In agony were pleading,
Ta have the court supreme preserved
For corporations feeding.
Preserve tho honor aow Indeed
Of our court most supreme sir.

Of corporate love twould saver.
Their dignity we'd glad preserve

But that Also they threw away
When lioyd the alien reigned sir.
The fruit of which preserves are made.

Thomas A. Edison Makes Electricity
Practical on Railroads.
A FAST ELECTEI0 M0T0E.
Btreet Cars That Will Pick Vp th Cur
rent Through One Line of Ball and
Return It to the Power Station
Through the Other.
New Yoke, Oct 20. Thomas A. Ed
ison, the electrical wizard, bas just
completed two inventions before the
wonderful And far reaching results of
which other recent discoveries are com
paratively insignificant. One is the
practical application of electricity to
great railroad lines, by which speed far
beyond anything achieved by steam
may be attained, and the other the ap
plication of electricity to the propulsion
of street cars without the use of danger
ous, unsightly and inconvenient over
The general principle of the street car
invention is that the electric current
passed down through one line of rails is
picked up by the car, passes through
the motor beneath it, and goes out on
the other side and returns through the
other line of rails to the central power
The experiments have been fully com
pleted and the invention passes out of
the first experimental stage into the sec
ond stage, its adaptation to practical
work. The experiments have been made
by Mr. Edison for the Edison General
Electric company, and until Mr. Edison
has turned the invention over to that
company for actual work the minute
details of the invention are of necessity
withheld from the public.
Mr. Edison's other discovery is to ob
viate the difficulty met in the attain
ment of high speed on the ordinary
steam railways, which is the interfer
ence of steam. The injection and ex
haust of the steam into and from the
cylinders is so rapid in its alternation
that beyond a certain limit it is im
possible to work, and this is an inherent
defect in all steam propulsion because
of the necessity of the conversion of re
ciprocating motion into rotary motion.
In the new electric motor this difficulty
vanishes, and the limit of speed is only
that of the endurance of the machinery
and the strength of the tracks.
With this invention of Mr. Edison a
speed of 100 miles or more an hour will
be more easily attainable than the or
dinary speed of fifty or sixty miles an
hour. This is also in the hands ot the
Edison General Electric .company, and
negotiations are now in progress for the
application of the system to one of the
long lines of railway.
OKLAHOMA'S CAPITAL FIGHT.
Governor Steele's Retirement Likely to
Reopen the Contest.
Wichita, Kan., Oct. 20. Colonel
James Mitchell, a prominent Oklahoma
politician, said that the retirement of
Governor Steele meant an immediate
reopening of the capital city fight, as
none of the prominent towns of the ter
ritory would be willing to see any other
have so strong a pull for the prize as
would be the possession of a governor
whose personal interests would natur
ally lead him to favor the town to which
he bflonged. Kingfisher has brought out
Judge A. J, Seay, and will get a large
part of wester Oklahoma to indorse
him. Guthrieis champion is John Dill,
with W. P. Hackney is also in the race,
and Oklahoma City "is urging the claims
of Judge D. Green. Meetings are being
held at all these points, and resolutions
indorsing the several claimants are be
ing telegraphed to the president, while
hundreds of personal messages are being
sent to Wilshiugtonians supposed to
havo influence. Governor Steele's
resignation is said to be due to his ac
ceptance of the presidency of some big
gun manufacturing corporation in tha

Deliveries Made in the
New York, Oct. 20. An organized
effort is under way among the farmers
to secure free mail delivery in the coun

a daily delivery at their doors will add
to the money value of their farms and

Sam Small's Open Letter.
Boston, Oct. 20. The Herald prints
To the Editor of The Herald.
The long and labored statements and
misstatements in the article entitled
"Sam Small on Bail" in The Journal is a
specimen of brilliant Republican cam
paigning. The transaction involved is one
with plain business features, which I am
perferetly willingjshall be passed upon by
the courts of Massachusetts, and with a
jury drawn from the editorial staff of The
Journal. On their oaths the gentlemen
will do me the justice they defly rue as
journalists, unless they are really Ultra
Republicans of the Quay-Da rdsley type.
Respectfully Sam W. Small.
In conversation with a reporter Mr.
Small was not inclined to enter into the
details of the transaction on which his
arrest was based, but affirmed that he
was not guilty of any wrong doing, and
that there was nothing on his part that
would not bear investigation in any
court. The Herald adds: "The im
pression by the articles in question is
that the action against Mr. Small is of
a criminal character, whereas it is a
civil suit." -

Paraguay, which he also held. Senor
Mard, who is a Cuban by birth, pre
sided at the exercises rently held by
the Cuban residents of tftis city in com
memoration of their declaration of in
dependence. This, it seems, roused the
ire of the Spanish minister at Washing

minister at Washington against Senor
Mard's action. Senor Mard heard or
this and immediately resigned so as to
remove all embarrassment from the re
public which he represents.

Fat Fees Are Received bj Many Ju

Tue Double and Triple Salary Question
Receiving the Attention of Controller
Matthews Decrease In the Mum.
ber of Army Desertions.
Washington, Oct. 80. Controller
Matthews will take hold of the doable
and triple salary question in his annual
report, which will soon be out. - It is
probable he wili recommend legislation
which will settle just bow many offices
one man shall be paid for holding.
Court offices are the fattest in the way
of fees, which amount to the same
thing as salaries. The attempt in one
or two cases to add the functions and
the pay of the clerks of the new appel
late courts to individuals already hold
ing the district and the circuit court
clerkships, as well as the United States
commissionorship, has caused an in
quiry to be made into some of these
In no case is the Judge sitting on the
bench able to keep up with his clork in
the matter of income. Until lately,
with a few exceptions, tho district
judges got only $V00. They now get
$T,U00, but even that has not brought
them up to the level of clerks' earnings.
The judges themselves take the matter
good naturedly and never try to equal
ize salaries. Under the feeystem they
don't think it possible. They will tell
how the chief justice of the United
States get $H,50(, and the clerk of the
supreme clerk makes anywhere from
$.0,000 to 125,000. It would be looked
upon as beneath the dignity of the
justices to complain of inequality, and
uone of them begrudges Clerk McKunna
his comfortable income. So the judgei
of the lower courts adopt the same tone.
The treasury officials, however, look
upon it as a plain business matter.
They think one piacs and one sr.lary
are enough, though they don't blame
any of the present clerks for benefiting
by a practice which has grown up.
But they are going to break it up if
May Succeed Itanin,
Washington, Oct. 20. Governor
Steele of Oklahoma has been sent for to
como to Washington. There is consid
erable mystery about the business which
brings him here at this time. One state
ment, and it has some plausibility on its
face, is that the president desires a talk
with Governor Steele with the view of
asking him to take' General Raum's
place at the head of the pension office.
Nobody doubts that Rail in is to retire
next month or as soon as his successor
can be fonnd. Steele is exceptionally
well qualified for the place. He was a
brigadier general of Indiana volunteers.
He served in congress until two years
ago, and was especially prominent in
pension legislation. lie is now a mem
ber of the board of governors of nation
al soldiers, homes.
Decrease In the Number of Desertions.
Washington, Oct. 20, A leading fea
ture of Secretary Proctor's forthcoming
annual report will be his remarks on the
subject of army desertions. He will
show conclusively that what has been
the army's greatest abuse for the last
twenty-five years and was thought by
many to be beyond correction is not
only on the wane, but at the same ratio
of decrease which has obtained during
the ikst two years will within a corre
sponding period be wiped ont entirely.
By returns just compiled for the month
of September it is shown that there
were only 121 desertions. This reduces
the percentage for the year to 5.8 per
cent, of the total enlisted strength, the
lowest percentage known since the war.

ly he has committed no crime. About

1 City of Mexico, Oct. 20. Th revi
val of bull fighting in the City of Mexi
co was in the name of charity. A com
mittee of ladies of this capital with Mrs.
Diaz, the wife of the president, at their
hAkd organized the show for the bene
fit ot the sufferers of the flood in Spain.
It wns one of the greatest spectacles of
the Mexican sport ever witnessed oil
the North American continent. Ths
Mine set was 2:30 in the afternoon. It
is estinlfftfcl that 12,009 persons were
present. Two military farads were pre
sent and four companies of infantry
served to insure good order. Nine bulb
of celebrated breed were killed amid tha
bravos of the spectators. The animals
had been trained for the occasion and
many of tha matadors had narrow es
capes. President Diaz and party left the ring
during the killing of the eighth bull. The
pandurillos that had been stuck into the
bulls were after the fight sold by ped

on the subject of ttie Paris fund and de
livered a few days before Parnell's
death. Before going to jail Dillon had
been careful to keep a moderate course.
He hoped that dissension would come to
an end before his release. Upon being
liberated he threw his lot in with the
McCarthyites, but he never used per
sonally abusive terms regarding Par
nell and ths utmost charged against
him by the Parnellites is that when
an offensive term was used in his pres

proof that he heard it, and if he did he
probably thought it best to ignore it.

Tories the strongest man of the two
factions and the most positive and com
