THE ELECTRIC CARRIAGE
KANSAS CITY Der 23 A horseless
I
carriage went swimming along the
smootn asphalt of Fourteenth street in
the vicinity of Cherry street today
fulfilling Mother Shiptons prophecy
that carriages without horses shall
run and terrifying two negroes who
saw sparks and apparently sulphurous
flames issuing from under it The ve
hicle was an electaic carriage or Kan
sas city invention and manufacture
and is the only one in the UnitedStates
although dissimilar ones are used in
the old world The invention is Dr
H C Bakers and was patented by
himself and J H Elberer in whose
carriage shop in this city the carriage
was made On the trial trip last night
the machine worked perfectly A
speed of eleven miles an hour was obtained
ained
The carriage is about the size of an
ordinary one Qne seat holding three
persoLs faces the front and another
one that will accommodate a similar
number faces to the rear A storage
battery coirposed of five series of five
cells each furnishes a current of 67
ohms and the cells are arranged in
three tiers beneath the seats The
wheels are of wood with India rubber
cushions on the tires The rear wheels
<
which are tnree feet two inches in di
ameter have on their inner sides a cast
iron flange twentysix inches in di
ameter and five inches wide Motion
from the dynamo which is over the hind
axle is communicated to the flange by
a rawhide friction pulley revolving
from 600 to 1000 times a minute and is
capable of being elevated or depressed
at will by the driver The steering is
done by a toothed segment and pinion
attached to the axle of the fore wheels
and handled by a steering post manip
ulated by the driver with his hands
The carriage can make quick short
turns The storage batteries will run
the machine about seven or eight hours
The Kansas City invention weighs I
about 2000 pounds and is quicker and
ghter l than the European coaches
THOSE DISCREPANCIES
How They Occurred in the Third Precinct

Want Only an Honest and Correct
Count
If some of the rantankerous republi
cans of Provo who read the Salt Lake
Tribune and take all it Days for law and
gospel would put a halt on their tongues I
just about now they would have less to
bo ashamed of when the courts deci
sion is given in the matter of the re
count by the Utah commission of the
ballots cast in certain precints tor dele
gates to the constitutional convention
The Tribune has cried U fraud I
fraud 1 and scores of republicans here
have taken up the cry and added to it
To hear them and believe them one
would think that tle majority of that
commission are worse criminals than
any three men in the Utah peniten
tiary that the l > xow committee ought
to turn the light of its investigation
upon their doings These republicans
dont seem to think that there is a
possibility the tables turning and
fraud committed by republicans being
shown They cry that the ballot boxes
were stuffed by democrats after they
left the judges of election and quote I
what the Tribune has reported the
the democratic judges of election in
whose returns discrepancies were

out in the Salt Lake Herald and deny
that they ever said anything akin to or
like what the Tribune published them
as sayine
The recount of the votes CaRt Third
precinct in Salt LakA io whit worries
the patriots most Of course those bal
lot boxes were stuffed by democratic
knaves according to them Those of
them who read the Silt Lake Herald
yesterday must have felt sick indeed
In that paper was published 7two affi
davits from honorable menwho Bay
under oath that at polls No 1 ancrW
d when toe votes were being counted
at dffferent times repnbljcaii judges
had counted more t for ti Publican
nominees tban Gro iinlvfl jmoenitic
judges In every case jtie difference
was yiftlded by the democrats to the re
publicans When the democratic nom
inees wire being credited with the
number of votes received the demo
cratic count was in excess of the republican
ican count and the difference was
yielded to the count made by the re
publican judges I
At pill Nc 3 where the discrepancy
of fifty voteo was found the error oc
curred in this way The votes were
counted that is to say the straight
votes of both parties in bunches of
50 each When the tally sheet was
madeup a bunch of 50 straight demo
cratic votes was tallied on the repub
lican side
All of this and more was shown to
the commissioE > before the recount
was made and ail of this and more
will be shown to tha court when the

Chinese 1aVDDrOltors
Among the Canton houses there are
occasional exceptions to the general one
storied or low constructions Some of
these are built like square towers four
or five stories high with 110 outside
Windows save at a considerable distance
above the ground and no outside projections
jections by which thieves might climb
up These establishment are called
pawnshops but they appeared to me
more to resemble our banks where we
place deeds and other valuables for safe
