ScirntUU, inventors and capitalists
arc united in endeavoring to apply elec
tricity to human uses, cspeciallv as a
motive tiowor. A few years back tho
problem to be
..-ed was how to so
t-icity as to produce
iTiis has been accom
. question beinz that of
cost. The electric light is confessedly
an immense improvement on the ordi
nary gas-light It is more powerful
andean bo put to more varied uses. It
is destined in time to make our nights,
not only indoors but out-of-doors, as
luminous as is the day. But while tho
radiance will be garish, it will be more
agreeablo than that of thu stm. But
now the problem to be sol veil is electric
ity as a motor. Stephen D. Field, of
New York, has united with tho famous
inventor Edison i 1 taking out patents
for propelling cars by clectrit-ity. He
claims to have anticipated the 'famous
Siemens accumulator. This new motor
is to be thoroughly tested upon the ole-
vatel roans 01 .New lork. lhn advan-
tages of electricity over steam are man- ,
ift. Heavy locomotives are dispense 1 ,
with, coal U not used, hence Here is no '
smoke. There is Ies jar in stoppinj; 1
the train, but as in the case of illnmi- !
nation tire cost is the undetermined 1
part of the problem. In every part of 1
the world wc hear of electric motors. '
Electric cars were moved thrbngh tho
crowded thoroughfares of Paris by the
Powell Storage Company. Xlnc tniles
an hour was made with case. At the
electric exhibition in Vienna, an electric
railway made a mile in three minutes.
The Daft motor has made a .succnsstul
trip on a Saratoga road. There is an
elevated railway in Berlin operated by
electrieitv. There is also ono
at Portrnsb. Ireland, the power ,
for which is drawn from a neighboring
watorfalL An omnibus has been run j
in Paris, the motive power being elec- 1
Iricitv. and tho heavy vehicle wa ,
handled and turned with feillty. On !
the water, electricity as a motor lias
ma-le no Its rapid" progrc'S thaa on
land. Ist summer an electric boat '
was.plying on the Danube Canal, tak- ,
ing thirty or more passengers six miles
an hour against the strong current, and
eighteen miles an hour with tbe stream.
Two year ago a launch propelled by
electrieitv was shown on tho Thames,
and the following year a boat of that
character, forty feet long, attained a
speed of cisht miles an "hour on tho
measured mile this boat leingtho one.

noise of ennes or vibration. As for
tho application of electrieitv to sub-
marine torpedoes, it is now the subject
ot much studv. attended with some suc-
cess. Electric small arms have already
been invented, and one uch weapon
was operated not long ago by Colonel
Fosbery at Londcn, before ana'sumblr
of army officers and others, by mean
of a small accumulator secreted under
his waistcoat. 1

niounta'n whose elevation etcceds that
