A Federal Officer Has to Accept the Votes
MACON", Ga., Nov. 8. SvriaZ. A sen
sational feature of the election in Macon
was an appeal made for several hundred
negroes to United States District Attorney
Marion Erwin to provide them facilities for
voting, claiming that the Democrats had ob

The attorney received their ballots at the

Kecent Kxperlments Warrant a Great Be
lief In Their Future Use.
Xew Orleans Picayune.!
One of the most interesting uses to which
electricity has been put of late years has
been its adaptation to the purposes of war
ships and the military service generally.
By far the most important use made of
a electric lighting on shipboard, however,
lias been its use in search lights. These
lights are so constructed as to give great
illuminating power, and can be made to
search out objects for long distances at sea.
Their power is sujh that a warship can lie
offshore and carefully scrutinize by the aid
of its search lights every detail of the forti
fications of a hostile port.
Electricity has also been made to serve
the purpose of signaling at night on board
ship, and is put to many other purposes of
less importance The latest experiments
with the electrio search light have de
veloped that it can be made to serve the
purpose of signaling long distances both by
lana and sea, where all ordinary means of
communication are unavailable. An inter
esting experiment of signaling with a
powerful electric flash light is reported in
recent exchanges. The light waB located
on the summit of Mount Washington, and
messages were sent to Portland, a distance
of 85 miles.
The messages were sent by flashing the
intense electric beam into the sky in long
and short flashes, to correspond with the
dots and dashes respectively of the Morse
alphabet, the signals being easilv read by
a telegraphic operator located in Portland.
It is explained that the direct source of
light was, of course, far below the horizon,
the shaft of light at Mount "Washington be
ing projected into the air at an angle of 45.
In this way the lower strata of clouds were
avoided and the pencil of rays was given a
path that took it to a point probably 80
miles in the air above Portland, its length
being calculated to be fully 100 miles.
A GEEAT SOPKANO 8INGEB.
Angelica Catalinl Probably the Greatest
That Ever lived.
St LiOnls Globe Democrat.
Angelica Catalinl was probably the great
est soprano singer that ever lived. Born in
1779, before she attained her 12th year she
was already famous. In the lull freshness
of youth her voice was of extraordinary
compass, going as high as G in altissmo
with a wonderful pure, sweet tone. No
singer ever equalled her, either in velocity
or precision in the execution of chromatio
passages, and her execution of difficult and
brilliant music was so true that evervwhere
Ehe created the greatest furor. In 1795 she
made her operatic debut at Venice, and un
til the date of her last public appearanoe,
for season alter season, electrified all Fur
ope, many operas being written expressly
for her voice
Her gains from musical performances
were enormous for that time. In 1807 she
receive 1 from managers over $80,000, then a
far greater sum than at present. She did
what few female singers were able to do;
left the stage in the height of her fame, re
tiring to a villa near Florence in 1828. Her
charity was unbounded. The amount of
money expended by her in founding and
endowing charitable institutions was esti
mated at $500,000. She died in 1849 at
Paris ot cholera.

watcher attempted to challenge his vote,
but he was quickly hustled out of the way.
Mr. Cleveland received a bunch of ballots
marked No. 18G and went into the fifth

just six minutes to prepare his tickets.
They were in proper order and as soon as
they were deposited in tleir respective

Tracy's Tote Cast In Brooklyn.
Hon. Benjamin F. Tracy, Secretary of
the Navy, cast his ballot in Brooklyn this
morning. He walked from the Hotel St.
George, in the Seventh election district,
First ward. Secretary Tracy arrived in
Brooklyn about midnight last night, from
"Washington. About 10:30 o'clock this
morning he appeared at the polling place
for the Eleventh district, and took his
stand in the line of voters who were trying
to reach the ballot box. When the Secre

out": "Hotel St George, B. F. Tracy."
There was a moment's pause, and then
the clerk inquired: "Is Tracy all right?"
The Secretary stepped forward, but the
voice of the inspector called out "One mo

There was another pause while an exami

then tne inspector saia: "xracy Is all

Flower Blunders at the Foils.
Governor Flofver was one of the first dis
tinguished men to cast his vote. It was not
generally known that he claimed residence
in New York City, but he had registered at
Fiftieth street and Madison avenue.
Shortly after 7 o'clock the Governor walked
into the polling place and, with a pleasant
smile for the inspectors, said: "Good
morning, gentlemen; it's a beautiful morn
ing, isn't it?"
"Delightful," answered a policeman who
stood neamy. The janitor of a Fifth ave

and attempted to step back, but the Gov

It was just 7:15 o'clock when the Governor
entered the little booth to select and fold
his tickets. Ten minutes later he came out,
and handing the tickets he wished to vote
over to the inspector, stepped back and
started to move out. He was interrupted
by an exclamation from the inspector, how
ever, and returned.
The Janitor Has the Laugh.
"You will have to go back, Governor;
your tickets are not folded right," the in
The Governor's face was instantly
suffused with blushes, and his efforts to
conceal embarrassment added to his evident
"Well, well," he exclaimed. "That's
funny," and taking his tickets he again en

without difficulty and seemed to feel proud
of bis superiority in knowledge as how to
exercise his franchise.
"The big men don't know everything as
much as some poor folks about some things,"
The Governor took eight minutes for his
second attempt, and with a satisfied, de

again. "I guess it's all right now," he
said, and waited for a reply.
"That will do," said the Inspector, as he
deposited the full set in their respective
boxes, and the Governor hastened away.
llow Stevenson and Filer Toted.
A telegram from Bloomineton, 111., says:
With the sky clear and weather cold, the
opening of polls here found large crowds
assembled to cast their votes. An especially
large crowd was about the polling place in
precinct No. 1 when, shortly after 9 o'clock,
Adlai E. Stevenson's family carriage drove
an, containing General Stevenson and his
son Lewis. The General fell in line, good
naturedly passing a few remarks with
neighbors and friends as he walked up,
called his number, took a ballot, and en
tered a booth. He was there just
long enough to make a cross
in the circle opposite the word
"Democratic" and when he came ont, de
posited it and re-entered his carriage.
Lewis, who had just cast his first vote, soon
joined him. and they were driven back to
the Stevenson residence, where they passed
the day quietly. Mr. Stevenson was con

LABGEST PALACE IN ETJBOPE.
Situated on the Spanish Mountains and
r Termed tho Eighth Wonder.
Escurial, the palace of the Spanish
Kings, has been termed the eighth wonder
of the world. Situated 25 miles to the
northwest of Madrid, and near the top of a
mountain, it has a commanding position,
covering nearly nine acres of ground, and
may be seen for many miles in any direc
tion. Begun by Philip IL in 1563, it was
finished 21 years later at an estimated cost
exceeding 3,000,000. It was built to full
fil a vow made by Philip IL, that if suc
cessful in battle with the French he would
erect the most magnificent monastery in ihe
The battle of St. Quentin was fought on
August 10, 1557, Jhe feast of St. Lawrence,
and the monastery buildings commenced in
fulfillment of the vow took, in honor of St.
Lawrence, the form of a gridiron, as
on this implement the saint is reported
to have suffered martyrdom. Seventeen
ranges of buildings, crossing each other at
right angles, form the rib of the gridiron,
while a quadrancular structure, completely
inclosing the interior buildinss, forms the
outer portion, and a wine 460 feet long is
the handle. The size of the building is
enormous, being 740 feet from north to
south, and 580 feet from oait to west; the
square towers at each corner are 200 feet
high. Within the monstrous structure are
contained the king's palace, a cathedral, a
monasterv of 200 cells, two colleges, three
chapter houses, three library buildings,
five large halls, six dormitories, three hos
pitals, three libraries and nearly 3,000 other
rooms. It is entered by 14 great gates and
lighted by 1,110 outer and 1,578 inner
The great church, built in imitation of
St. Peter's at Borne, is 364 feet long, 230
feet across the transepts: the dome is 330
feet high; there are 40 chapels, with their
altars in the interior, and the grand altar,
formed of jasper and gilded bronze, is 90
feet high and 50 wide. Underneath the
altar is a vault, where all the Kings of
Spain since Charles V. repose in niches.
Built in the time of Spain's glory, the Es
curial remains the most striking monument
of Spanish wealth and power.
WHAT THE BLIND CAN 1)0.
In Spite of Their Affliction They Often Per
form Wonderful Feats.
"It seems as though it were only in a few
cases of brilliant talent that there can be
anyreal competition between the blind and
the seeing; but a blind child, like one who
has lost an arm or leg, may learn to make
the most of what is left to him, and to that
end the work rooms of the institution claim
their full share of each day," says Mrs.
Frederic B. Jones in the September Ecrib
tier. "The boys are taught to make mattresses,
to cane chairs, and if they have ear and
brain enough to be tuners, there are models
by which they may become familiar with
the anatomy of the piano. The girls learn
to knit and sew by hand and on machines;
they embroider and make coarse lace, and
are also taught cooking on little gas stoves.
Not long ago one of them had to go home
because her mother was ill, and on her re
turn she was heard to say, half in joke and
half in earnest: 'It was a bad day for me
when I learnt to cook, for I was kept at it
all the time."
"The list which is kept of the occupa
tions followed by pupils after they leave
the school gives some curious reading. One
of the tuners in Steinway's warerooms is a
graduate, and another was for years the
organist of Dr. Howard Crosby's Church.
An insurance broker, a prosperous news
vender who owns three stalls, a horse
dealer, a tax collector, a real estate agent,
a florist, are all di.ly recorded, but the most
astonishing entries are those ot a lumber
man, a sailor and cook, and a switch tender.
Once outside the walls of the institution
the pupils find their own level according to
their ability, but wherever they may go
they always keep a friendly feeling fof the
teachers who have literally led them forth,
so far as mav be. from the shadow of a trreat
darkness, and these in their turn are repaid 'J

creature into a man or woman for whom
there is a place in the world."
No Beasts of Prey In Australia.
In Australia, with the exception of the
Dingo a wild dog there are no true beasts
of prey. This wild dog is verging on ex
tinction, and, according to Owen, has little
claim to be considered an indigenous ani
mal, having been introduced by or with the
earliest inhabitants. The more remote oce
anic islands in the Pacific and elsewhere are
mainly devoid of beasts ot prey. New Zea
land may also be placed in the same cate
gory. ' Corsets for Men.
Men's corsets can be purchased at from
12s. to as mnch as 5 in London, according
to the means and inclination of the pur
chaser. They are made of the same mate
rial,exeept that whalebone is substituted for
steel, as a woman's corset, but are some
what different in shape, being like a ten
inch belt curved to fit over the hips. They
lace in the back, and are tightened in front
by means of elastic bands.

ErXCIAL TELEGEAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Philadelphia, Nov. 8. Chairman
Beeder was the only member of the Bepub
lican State Central Committee who did not
concede Harrison's defeat at 10 o'clock last
night. The scenes at the headquarters were
not enthusiastic at any time. From an early
hour the Bepublicans seemed imbued with
the idea that they bad met defeat. Chair
man Beeder and the colored janitor were the
only persons who attempted to maintain a
show of composure in the face of the re-

turns that were received over private wires
lrom the National Republican headquarters
in New York.
At 9 o'clock the prominent Bepublicans
who had assembled at headquarters to re
ceive the news of Harrison's victory com
menced to put on their hats and coats and
go home. Most of them took the defeat of
their candidate very quietly, expressing
themselves as pleased that, if they must be
defeated, it was by such a man as Grover
Cleveland. For more than an hour Chair
man Beeder and his colored janitor endeav
ored to cheer up the Bepublicans who drop
ped in, but when the news came that Cleve
land had carried NewYork City by more
than 72,000, and that Illinois had joined the
Democratic States, they also lost courage.
The Headquarters Early Deserted.
At 10.30 o'clock the headquarters were
deserted, it being granted on all sides that
Harrison was a defeated candidate,although
Chairman Beeder remained, hoping for

The contrast was marked at Democratic
headquarters; there everything indicated
victory. Private advices were received
during the afternoon from reliable sources
in New York promising a large majority
for Cleveland, and encouraging reports
were received fromNew Jersey, Connecticut
and other points.
At an early hour of the night the head
quarters were thronged by Democrats, in
cluding many of the most prominent men
in tbe State, who had gathered to learn the
news. There were also several Bepubli
cans who had come into the enemy's camp
to hear the other side ot the story.
A Scene to Beggar Description.
As the evening passed the crowd in
creased, until, at 10 o'clock, the head
quarters were packed to their utmost
capacity. The scenes, as the news of Dem
ocratic gains came in, beggars de
scription. The enthusiasm increased
with each dispatch announcing larger
gains, until it reached fever
heat when Cleveland's large majority was
announced, and when the news came that
Illinois was numbered with the Democratic
States, the crowd fairlv went mad. Men
who were never known to become excited
lost control of themselves and joined in the
wild cheers of victory.
Until long after midnight Chairman
Wright and prominent members of the com
mittee remained, talking of the great vic
tory, and receiving callers. Many good Be
publicans called and shook hands with the
victorious Democrats, and expressed pleas

The streets were thronged with men and
women. Around the newspaper offices the
streets were blockaded. When the election
of Cleveland was conceded on all sides, all
the Democratic clubs in the city turned out
and paraded the streets. It was estimated
that there were more than 5,000 in line, as
well as several bands. It waB long after
midnight when the enthusiastic Democrats
sought their homes.
