A NEW STORY.
Beginning next week THE INDEPEN
nrsr will publish the first chapters of a
new serial story for old and young by
Frances Hodgson Burnett, whose name
is familiar to all readers of sterling fic
tion as the author of those strong
novels, "That Lass o' Lowrie's,"
'Through One Administration," and
other great stories, and who as the
writer of "Little Lord Fauntleroy" is a
prime favorite in every household where
the children are gathered.
The new story, which is entitled
"Giovanni and the Other," is a beauti
ful tale of two Italian boy singers. One
is Giovanni, a hearty, healthy, happy
lad with a wonderful voice, who sings
before the hotels and cafes of San
Remo, and is showered with money on
aocount of his delightful singing; "the
other" is an older boy, whose voice had
once been even more beautiful than that
of Giovanni put who had ruined it forever
by singing too much at night in the open
air and by his wild reckless life. The
relation of Giovanni to "the other"
and to the two American ladies at a
great hotel, forms the material for a
narrative of rare beauty and pathos.
The story has many of the characteris
tics that made "Little Lord Fauntleroy"
so great a success and yet in no way re
Mrs. Burnett's stories are always in
spiring and helpful, always imbued
with humane and wholesome sentiment,
always full of encouragement to young
people to live manly and womanly lives,
to be brave and honest, to be zealous in
right living and honorable action. It is
these qualities in her work that has
aroused in readers everywhere, both
young and old, a personal interest in
the author, and secured for her stories
an enduring popularity.
The story will be completed in four or
THE consumers of tin plate, in this
country, propose to have something to
say to the manufacturers of that article
and have formed a union, as one of their
number says, "to choke off all tin plate
liars in the United States." Congress
man-eleot Bunting, of New York, who
represents the canning industry, which
now consumes more than one-half the
Gin plate used in the United States, says
that that industry, which comprises
2,000 factories and gives employment,
directly or indirectly, to nearly 2,000,000
people, is made the mark for a disas
trous discrimination, and proposes to
organize and fight for relief. Hie pro
duces figures to show that the increased
cost to consumers of canned goods, by
reason of the duty on tin cans, is enough
to pay 12,000 workmen a salary of $400
per year, with $200,000 left over. It
would require 60,000 acres of land to
grow the corn represented by this
waste. In the absence of the duty the
canner could pay the farmer 25 per cent.
more for the fruits, eto., canned, and still
sell them for the old prices. The meat
packers, he says, used 600,000. boxes of
tin plate in the year ending March 1,
1891. Of this product 475,000 boxes
were consumed in this country. The
duty which the consumers paid was
$1,225,750, or enough to pay for 56,227
more head of cattle, which would have
paid the farmer $20 per head and would
have required for grazing over 1,000,000
acres. And yet the McKinley organs
tell us the tariff is not a tax.
OHIO is ordinarily a safe republican
state, but for some reason the g. o. p. is
having hard pulling there this year and
the leaders are nervous. The Washing
ton correspondent of the Minneapolis
Journal writes thus frankly to that in
dependent republican newspaper:
Indications ip Washington at this time
are that the situation in Ohio is not as
favorable to the republicans as it might be.
It begins to look as though Maj. McKinley
can only hope to pull through by a small
plurality. Ohio politicians in this city are
on the anxious seat. There is a Macedonian
cry from the republican camp in Ohio for
additional campaign funds. The Journal
correspondent to-day was shown a letter to
Ohio officeholders, which practically de
mnanded their attendance at a meeting held
lanst night to arrange for contributions to
carry on the campaign in favor of Mo
Kinley and the election of a republican leg
islature. The wording of this letter was in
the nature of a threat. It indicated in no
uncertain manner that any clerk appointed
from Ohio who did not contribute to the
campaign fund was not safe in his present
position. This letter was signed by a man
who is slated for insurance conmmissioner
of Ohio, in case McKinley is elected. Dem
ocratic politicians in the east are already
clalming a sweeping victory in Ohio. Sen
ator Georman. who is the shrewdest political
prophet in the democratic party, figures
that Ohio, Iowa, New York and Massachu
setts will go democratic in this fall's camn

100 MILES AN HOUR.
An Engine to Be Built That Will Beat All
"If the new engine I am about to have
constructed is not capable of making 100
miles an hour I'll give her away to the first
person I meet."
This astounding statement was made yes
terday by Mr. Jackson Richards,. the mas
ter mechanic of the Philadelphia & Read
inig railroad, who was exhibiting to a party
of deeply interested persons the drawings
for a locomotive which, if successful, is al
most sure to revolutionize the construction
of the high speed locomotives of the future.
Mr. Richards, who is recognized all over
the United States as having no peer in
knowledge concerning locomotives and
railroad machinery, has been working on
his latest invention for the past ten years,
and a few days ago the drawings were com
pleted and the patent was applied for.
The new invention will enable a gigantic
stride to be taken in the matter of high
speed locomotives, and if the new flyer is
as successful as the experts predict she will
be, it is more than likely that the time be
tween Philadelphia and New York will be
made in less than an hour. A specimen
engine will be built for exhibition at the
World's fair, and the trial trip will be
made between here and that city, says the
In outward appearance the pew locomo
tive will not differ materially from the
speedy engines now used on the Philadel
phia & Reading railroad between this city
and New York. The peculiarity of con
struction lies in the fact that instead of the
two cylinders, as used at present, there
will be four. One cylinder will be located
on each side of the locomotive frame as at
present, and the other two will be cast in
what is known as the cylinder saddle. The
inside pair of cylinders will be in one
piece, and will be on an aingle. The out
side cylinders are to be horizontal as at
The four cylinders will entirely overcome
what is known to engineers as the dead
centre, and the engine will be perfectly bal
anced without any counter balance in the
wheels. This latter improvement will, to a
large degree, do away with the vicious
pounding which has proved so destructive
to modern road-beds. The perfect balan
cing of the engine will be largely due to the
workings of the two cylinders so near her
center, and these same cylinders, working
as they do from such a central point of
vantage, will help out in the matter of speed
to a great degree.
According to the experts who have ex
amined the drawings, the valve motion is
perfect. 'There will be four valves-one to
each cylinder-and they will be operated
by two links, the same as now used for two
cylinders. The engine is designed to be
built on the Wooton fire-box, the same as
is now used on the famous "206," which
made a mile in the remarkable time of
39 4-5 seconds on Aug. 27. '1 he ordinary
speed of the destined world-beater will be
eighty-five miles an hour.
