NOW FOR WIRELESS CLOCKS
All Inarnloim Device by Which Elec
' trlrnl Wnvfi f;t II uuy on
To set the clocks of a big city by elec
trical, waves and keep them uniform In
tlme-Hlils Is the latest faculty afforded to
municipalities by a magician In the science
of tMarcotilcs. The inventor Is a Viennese,
aii4 his name Is Frnnz Moraweti. He has
been experimenting for some years, but it
Is only within recent days that he has
thoroughly perfected his Invention. At first
X was found that utmoxphcrlc unheavals
and other disturbing factors rendered his
process f tittle when at every moment In
the day the receiving clock operated on by
the transmitter was attuned to the action
df the latter, the result being that high
winds and great disturbances of the air
upset the proper action and course of the
In the case of the present contrivance
the objective clock is isolated during fifty
nine seconds In each minute, In which time
it is Insensible to all emission of electrical
currents. In the sixtieth second, however,
the receiving apparatus, hitherto Idle, Is
automatically brought Into circuit with the;
transmitter. No two clocks travel at pre
cisely the same speed, and since there must
be a divergence from a given standard, the
waves directed from the transmitter of the
central clock the standard time proceed
to adjust the objective time-teller to the
standard of "headquarters," or the exact
sun time. Should the wave, owing to In
terruption for any reason, fall to reach its
objective clock at the right moment, the
harm done, In point of time, would not be
great. In fact, time, would be untrue by
only one-sixtieth of a second, providing '
that In the previous minutes it had cor-i
responded with headquarters. The time
would, In any case, be adjusted In the nexti
transmission of waves, and the untruthful I
timepiece would come Into line with the
other clocks' which were correct.
The Klecti'O-Technlcal institute of Vienna
has adopted this method of looking after
the clocks of the Austrian capital. Indeed,
the municipal council votes a yearly sub
vention of about $1,000 for the up-kcep of
the "central post," which radiates waves
to a 'distance of nearly n mile In all direc
tions over the city. The Inventor holds,
however, that his process could keep the
clocks of a whole province In correct order.
The clocks In question are of the ordinary
mechanical kind, but each is fitted with a
small and cheap upparatus which, receiving
the electrical waves, adjusts the mechan
ism according to due requirements. Tho
central or regulating clock is an electro
niercury timepiece, which, at the required
moments, discharges into the transmitter,
or antenna, the electrical energy accumu
lated in a l'fl-Jar battery. New York World.

"Personally, I believe In woman'! suf
frage," laid Mr. Roosevelt at the outset of
the letter, which Is dated November 1'',
1!j8, "hut 1 am not an enthusiastic advo
tate of It because I do not regard It as a
very Important matter. I am unable to
see that there has been any special Im
piovement In the position of women In those
states In the west that have adopted w nun
tuff i ages as compared with those stales
auJMning them that have not adopted It.
1 do not think that giving the women suf
frage will produce any marked Improve
ment In the conultlon of women.
No Demand from Women.
"I do not believe that it will p oduco
any of the evils feared, and 1 am very
certain that when women, a! a who.e, take
any special lnierest In the matter they will
have the su.frage If they desire it. But at
present 1 think most of them are luke
warm; I find some actively for It ind some
actively against It. I am, for the leasnns
given above, rather what you would regaid
as lukewaim or tepid In my support of It.
because, while I believe In It, I do not re
gard it as of very much Importance.
"I believe that man aniS woman should
stand on an equality of right, but I do not
beheve that equal. ty of right! means Ident
ity of. function; and 1 am mors and more
convinced that the great field, the indis
pensable llc;d, foi tho usefulness of women
Is as the mother of the family. It l! her
work In tho household, In the home, her
work In bearing and rearing the children,
which Is more than any man's work, and
it la that work which should bo normally
the woman's special work. Just as normally
the man's work should be that of the
bread winner, tho suppo.ter of the home,
and if necessary the soldier who will fight
for the home."
'There are exceptions as regards both
man and woman, but the full and perfect
life, the life of highest happiness and of
highest usefulness to tho state, Is the life
of the man and woman who are husband
and wife, who live In the partnersnip of
love and duty, and one earning enough to
keep tho home, the other managing the
home and -children. Sincerely yours,
Dr. Abbott, who was the principal
speaker at the meeting, argued against
what he held would be the Infliction of
new and unnatural responsibility and duty
upon women by forcing upon them the
obligations of public life. The title of his
address was "The Assault on Woman
Root Takes Same View.
Secretary Root, In a letter which was
read at the meeting, says:
'I do not consider that the granting of
suffrage to women, would, under the ex
isting conditions, be any Improvement In
our system of government. On the con
trary, I think It would rather reduce than
Increase the electoral efficiency of our
people. I am Inclined to think, however,
that if the women of the United States, or
any very large majority of them, should
really come to want the right of suffrage
for themselves, they would ultimately get
it. For the purpose of exercising the right
of suffrage if they should ever get It, and
for the purpose of determining Intelli
gently whether they really want it, the
women of the country generally ought to
have and to slse the opportunity for a
greater degree of educatkn In questions
of government and In tho practical an
of government than they had had up to
Richard Watson Gilder, editor of the
Century Magazine, presided at the meet
ing and In the course of his address, said:
"Within a few days- the country has
been shocked by the appalling official fig
ures of divorce In the I'nlted States. In
the face of this lamentablo allowing as to
an Increasing weakness of the sentiment
of home and family In America, It is reas
suring to find so many women willing to
stand forth and Insist upon the fact that
the home und family are the foundations
of the best things that humanity has yet
achieved, and to lift up their voices against
what In their solemn belief Is a new, in
sidious and possibly, disastrous attack
upon the fundamentals of civilisation."
BUSINESS METHODS IN CITIES
Attractive Shonlnii of the Commission
Hynirm of Government In
At a recent meeting of the Carolina
Municipal association Mr. Rice, the mayor
,)f Houston, Tex., gave an account of the
government of his city whlchwas full of
interest as a lesson In what may be ac
compliKlud In the way of business munic
ipal administration. Houston had for
years been suffering under the evils of
political government. It was Inefficient
and extravagant, and money which was
raised by taxation was squandered., Pub
lic utilities were unregulated and people
had to pay too much for what they gut.
Wearying of these things, leading citizens
went to the legislature for a city charter
on a new plan. Under this plan authority
and responsibility were centered In a
mayor chosen by the people, voting under
the restrictions of the Uwi of Texas. These
laws limit the suffrage to those who have
paid tho poll tax In person. The main
features ot the Houston plan are the elec
tion by the people of a mayor who is tho
head of the municipality and of small
council. Instead ot having a council com
posed of men elected by separate wards,
the council Is composed of four men elected
from the cJly at large. A co-ordinate
power la vested In the mayor and cou.icil
to dismiss any city official, except the
comptroller, without cause at any time.
Essential provisions were adopted safe
guarding the granting of municipal fran
chise!. A larga portion of the executive
or administrative power Is subdivided into
different departments. Each department
Is under the charge of a committer and
the mayor, and all the councilmen are
members of each committee.
One of the striking results of tiie sys
tem, as described by Mayor Rice, has been
the elimination of red tap and palaver.
Any cltlsen who wants a street paved,
taxes adjusted, assessment changed, a
nulaanco abated, has only to call at the
mayor' office, state his case and have the
matter decided on the Spot. Not long ago
a nonresident landowner cam to Houston
and discovered that hi property was
sessetl higher than ather dj.tcint prop
erty. He asked the ndvlco 'f lnV"j
