exemplllled their faith on several occasions by

from their usual rulu and nalked from place to

They walked tothls place from I'uuldlnir, Ohio
sixty miles, and since their arrival hero have

they held near the Jacobs farm, they bocntnn

SIXOISO IMO FUXSELS.
The Tolces or tbe Arlon Hoelety are lie,
corded tn IVmx,
Tho announcement that the Arlon tiinginc
Society, of Newark, would slug into tbe phono
Kraph iu tho lecture room of tho Edison labora
tory yostorday afternoon, drew an audlenco in
which boautlful women weru a feature.
In tbe centre of tbe lecture room wero placed
three phonographs upon tables, and connect
ing with tbo phonographs were funnels of dif
ferent lengths, so arranged as to catch the
sounds. Tho singers of tho Arlon Society, un
der tbo leadership ot Frank Van dcr Htuckcn,
of this city, wore arranged, to the number of
sixty, iust In front of the large ends or tho fun
nels. They first had n rehearsal for an ontor
tuinmont to bo given on Thursday evening, and
their notes, tho false as well as the correct,
woro Inithfullj recorded by the pbonograDlis.
Then tbe .society sang several of the songs
for, which prlnui wero awarded in Baltimore
Iuti1 spring: Thesomere oarernlly recorded,
and an attempt will bo made tostereotpo the
phonogram, whlcn Is the name pnen to tho
liiiiire-siuii produced by the sound waves upon
the wax cylinders of tho phonograph. Some
ol tho singing was reproduced irom the
phonograph for the benefit of tho audience,
and it was totirul thnt the versatile and accom
plished instrument sings as well In German as
In its native touuue.
Another thing that interested the audience
was tho reproduction of sound- thnt bad been
recorded pome time prolou. Tu weeks ago
Markwith's band of Change played to the
phonograph hi tho lecture room of tho labora
tory. Ono by one tbo i-poctuiors placed the
tubes to their ears nnd listened delightedly to
the stirring strain of "On to Petorsbuig."
Tbe high notes or tho cornets rang out shrill
and olear. Tho big bos drum came In at tho
proper place not leis distinctly. Bilemio fol
lowed the playing, and then arose the shout:
"He's all right." "Who's all right?" "John
ny." " Who's Johnny V" " Why, Johnny Mark-
' Thecyllndors of the phonographs are four
inehes long und two In diameter, and each ono
will record sounds about eiiual to a column of
'i'liK Hon. They are of o wa composition,
und will easily stand 15Udogrees of tempera
ture. The record upon a cylinder can be easily
effaced und a nowremrd made, und this can
be repeated ixtytliuos before the cylinder la
worn out. A more durable oylinder, and ono
capable of producing better results, is now in
prr.cess of Inventioi'.
Ono peculiarity of the phonograph is that
when It reproduces tbe short, high uotes of tho
violoncello, the sounds closely resemble those
of a lndy singing. Thl is said to confirm tho
nctertlon that tbe violoncello resembles tho
human voice more closely than any othor in
strument. ltecently Mr. George tdwnrdos, manager of
tho London Gaiety Theatre company, tele
graphed to havo Mr. rred Leslie ond Miss
Nellie Farren of the London Gaiety company
sing to the phonograph for his benefit. JCach
hang two Mongs In tho Kdison laboratory on
Triday, and on Saturday tho cylinders wero
sent to London, where the sounds will be re
produced, thus enabling Mr. Edwardes tojudco

Mr. Vance had a thrilling experience with the '
" I an trod at Sardinia," hesavs, " on tho night
otNov. 0, My undo, whoso larm Is threo miles
tiom tho town, met mo at tho depot wltha horse
nnd buggy. We started for his homo shortly
I niter 9 o'clock". The routo was lonesome. Thu
I nroater part ot the way lay through a vnlloy,
1 iindtbo bills are heavily Umbered. About 11 mils
from tho town a man on horseback passed us,
Ills head wosenvelopod with ft whlto cloth and
he was riding at a torrlllu pace. My undo said :
'There" goes one of those cursedWhlte Caps;
somebody will got whipped to-night.'
" About n ball mile further on. nt theedgoot
'some woods. Is a drinking trough for horsos.
Mr uncle drew up to it, nnd got out to loosen j
tbo chock from tho horse's head. Ho had boon '
telling me about the depredations of the band,
and continued talking while tho horse was
drinking. Ho talked in a loud tone, and in the
stillness ho could oaslly have been overheard
by any ono concealed within twenty yards, ,
My uncle, among other things, said: 'I know 1
two of them, and have engaged spiou to dis
cover tho rest. As foou as wo can get evldoncn

tho reputation of always going through with a
thing when ho has once started. Woitrrliod
nt the (aimhouse about 11 o'clock, and retired
shortly after. 1 was tired, and slept soundly.
I uroso early and came down stairs before my
uncle mid the servants had got up. 1 opened
tbe door. Stuck against tho door by a sbarp-
Eolntod knife was a rough drawing of a human
oart with tho weapon stuck through its cen

nnd cross bones, and in the opposite corner
tho picture of ncollln. Uclow was an Inscrip

"On tho stop was n bundle of beech switches,
and attached to tho cord that hold them to

showed tbe warning and the buudlo of
whips. His first words were: 'Tho doUls must

nounced his Intention ot going into town und

n notico 011 tbe fence facing tbo road to the or- '
feet that ho did not fear all the White Caps iu
Christendom, and would never rest until ho ,
hud hanged a fow of lliem. I tried to Uiseundo 1
htm Irom putting un the notico, but tbo old
man was obdurate. Thu next morning another
notice whs stuck on the iront door which road:
'Wo will call on you within ton days."
"My uncle engaged u man named Harwlck
to watch the promise". On tho fourth night he
called us and said tho Whlto Caps were sur
rounding tho house. Wo aroso and dros-od
hurriedly. Arming ourselves, wo wont to tho 1
Iront window. I should judgo tboro woro 1
thirty maBkod horeemon iu tbo yard or neur It.
"'Who are you, and what do ou want'r"
asked my uncle. . .
"Tho foremost hotnoman replied: Wo want
you. und wo aro going to have you.'
" ' All right,' replica the old mun. ' como on.' "
"With that ho raised his shotgun nnd lired
into tho middle of the group. Thero was a
jell, and a man fell from his horse. They
picked htm up, and all turned und galloped
away. In about two hoars wr beard thorn re
turning. Wo wero ready for them. We had
loaded the sun with small bird ofiot. and an
they dashed into the yatd we did not hedtatu
to llro ut them. Tho volley seemed lo rattlo
them. Attain they went awuy. We heard
nothing for three days. I supposed they had
got enough and would let us nloue.
"Tho third night about lu o'clock wo hoard a
nolso in the burn, und Uurwick and I went to
see what wus tho matter. I never thought of
White Caps. Wo lott my uncle with un old
woman servant nlono in the house. Wo had
hardly left tho house before 1 wus htrmk down,
and three men, their lares cored with musks,
woro 011 top of nio. At my side Hnrwick was
sufloriugthe sumo violence. They bound us
with cords and half carried nnd half led ua to
the barn. Ono of them raid to us:
'"Wo mo.in you no harm if you keepFtlll.
Wo are going tp teach Auron tukeenhif. tonguo

lelt with us took a seat ubout tun feet nnay.
ond nover took bis eyes irom us. Inu&hort
timeue heard tho report of a gun. and then
followed n perfect fusillade. Shot after shot
was Ured. and I wondered bow my uncle mnn
aired to load and flro so rapidly. A tew minutes
tutor a mun opened tbe burn door and beckon
ed to our guard. Ho Immediately left u. and
we did not see him ngi.in. It was broad
daylight when my uncle opened the
barn door and cut the ropes thnt
bound us. Ho explained thnt ho did not
dare to come out of the housn belore. 1 was ho
etifTthattt was some time before I could 111010
my limbs. Jlv uncle told tho Mory oi the as
sault, and how by the aid of tho old servant,
. who loaded tlm gurs. ho had been able to tho
no rapidly. TwoiUys befme I lott my uriclo
1 got u tetter which said that tho Whlto Caps
would have rovongo if It took all winter. I
tried to Induce him to go nway until tho gang

I It is said theiowlit bo a little stand-and-deliver

Most of tbo men wore their huts in the meet
ing. Ahonvily tiuilt, tall young man, wearing
u bluo llunnel hhtrt nnd n largo overcoat, was
made Chairman. He railed on a Utile woman
to hpeuk. tiho had put down a fow thoughts
on paper. Nobody paid any attention lo the
speaker thoro was anarchy in that respect.
Bho asked several times that somebody would
nsk her hard questions. A tall, earnest man
llnullv screwed up his oourago and said:
" The speaker, Mr. Chairman, talked o' over
production. Is it really true that thoro Is any
overproduction " , .
Tho speaker thon explained thnt she meant

suld tbat Industrial education was 11 good thing.
A Gorman got un and said, with every ap

make speeches until kingdom como. but tho

" Starve tho workingmeii," ho cried aloud,
"then you make them look into tho mutter nnd

had no use lor anarchy. All ho wanted was $1

A spruce-looking bricklayer on the opposite

"It would bo n big thing for anarchy If all
tbe bosses cut the wages down to a dollar a

Another German said that tho prejudices of

stood in tho way of tho social revolution.
"The Amorlcan worklngmon." ho said, sny
to tho German norklngmnn when bo si-eaUsof

to tbe belief that well paid workingmon netor I

would bo greatly to their interest to do so. Tbo

IJV I1STE31FERATE CITIZEN BIBBED,
lie fVanled Ham Small to Say "the Din.
honorable Warner aflUer."
An auditor nt the meeting of the American
Tempornnee Union in Chlckorlng Hall yester
day created a considerable breezo in this way:
SamSmnllwas speaking and referred to " the
Hon. Warner Mlllor." A man tn one of the
boxes arose, and, Interrupting Mr.HmalI.ro
iiucbtcd thnt he thereafter refer to Mr. Miller
as "the Dishonorable" Warner Miller. In
stantly nine-tenths of the audience began to
hiss, and thoro were cries of "Put him out 1"
Many rose ami left the hall. Whon matters
had calmed down somewhat, Small said he
would not refer to Warner Miller as he had
been renuestod, but would leute blm where he
hud lound him. When the speaker mentioned
Mr. Miller's name again he had to stop, for a
storm of upplauso followed that lasted for
some time. Canos and umbrellas were pound
ed on tho floor, and somo folks oven went so
funis to cheer. The bnll wan completely tilled.
and It w.is evldont that almost everybody
present was nn admirer of Warner Miller. It
wus a Prohibitionist presumably who interrupted.

on tho new Manhattan Bridge acrots tbe Hot. V S
lemltlver abovo IllghUrldgo saw a dark ob ' !Mt
Jeot flash through tho air and disappear In tuft I1; ;(
shallow water below. Some ono shouted that jjl':
man had fallen trom the bridgo. Men got Into hi
a boat to go and bring In tho dead body, bat ! ;
before they wore fairly sealed the lively bat tiif;
very muddy body camo up and struok oat jfti
to do a llttlo rescuing on his own hook. J,lii
Tho man was William Ackert, a foreman XtR1
painter on tho new bridge' Aftor gotting ont 1! '
ot the water ho walked ton bulldltignear.br. V J( H
sent for some dry clotbos, and wont back to bla '' i
work on the big span, just as though he had . It ;
not fallon H5 foot and narrowly escaped doatn, yi ;i
Mr, Ackert is 24 years old, short and, at first 11 ij
sight, looks very slim, but a second glanoa ,' fj
shows a magnificent chest development and a ' HH
pair of very clean-cut, powerful legs. Ho baa BH
brown hair nnd moustache, nnd seams to think
no moro of his fall than though he had only ' y , mH
rolled out of bed. He tells this story ot his ex- US
perlenco : jW
" I wont up to the middle of the blc span to Si M
givo Bome orders to my workmen. Suddenly I Mitfe
slipped on some fresh paint, and as I rail X lR
grabbed the span, but I did not get a coos' '
grin, and tbo weight of my body threw m mMi
backward, and I slatted head loromost tor th !ll4
water below. 1 hod possession of my thoughts ifjt
all tbe way down, and wondored If I would' "
feel it when I struck tho spiles belcrw 1 W
and it 1 would bo killed. Just before) j W:
I struck the water I could seo tha A)
spiles. I saw that I would not strike them. I ))'.
turned over twice in tho dosoent and strnokv ,
the wator head down, with my hands stretched W,
out b-itore me, as though 1 were diving. Tho fJK!
water was only about throe feet deep, and tho r !
tide was going ont Mr hands and armB went ' ', Wl
Into tha mud. I bad a pair of big gloves on. I -B-'
and when I pulled my .arms out of the mud tho ? m:
gloves stayed there. I might have walked out i '
of the. water, bat I was a little dared, and i ,Jr ,
started to swim to the spiles. 1 ,
, '" On the way down I fell between soveral t ?l
iron braces, any. oue of whloli would havo 'Ji
killed me Instantly bad I struok It Tho moat m
miraculous part of tho fall, however, was tho JR
way I struck. TTndcr tha bridge the river is , ij9
full of spiles. There is a space about eight ! W
foet in diameter which is free from them, nnd l.K'
It was into this space that f fell. Had I fallen r ic
gvo feet in either direction I would surolyhnvS ': R
eon dashed to pieces. t vl
"I did not feI tho foil at all reetordar. nnd (
after! tlnlshed my work walked to my board' i '
lng house In Ogden avenuo, near Union street. f , i i
To-day I feet just a llttlo soro. but it doeent ifi
amount to anything. ' I
, " 1 have had four orflve pretty tough falls. A I Si '
fewycnrsacol fell forty-tlvo feot npon a flag; f W.
walk from a scaffolding, and beyond having tho Jf
wind knocked out ol mo. suffered no Injury. M
Yesterday I did not evon lose my wind. I don't I
think this bridge jumping is whnt it is cracked v W
up to be, butjustthesame, I don't care to try it i ,?,
again." I j!
One of the workmon who saw Ackert fall said f &
that he slipped and grabbed the span, but an t -
ho lest his hold started down feet tlrst and I fi:
hands extended above his head. On tho way J
down ho wns seen to turn sovoral complete; -jb
somersaults, and, finally, to plunge hoad lore-. 3 ft:
most into the water. Nobody ozpeeted to see 1 m
him come up alive. Tho hero of tho advontuio , -m
seemed the least concerned of anybody. j ;f
