It is the talk in Washington that John
ItflMcLean is really a candidate for the
TJ81 Senate. The friends ofPendleton
and Thurman are disposed to unite,
with tho understanding that if Pendleton
is elected to tho Senate, Thurman is
to have a clear track for the Presidency,
while, if Thurman goes to the Senate,
Pendleton is to bo pushed for the Presidency.
Payne is considered a mere figure-head.
The Utility of the ENctrlc Light.
While electric lights of the arc and incandescent
systems were exhibited many
vears ago, they have only been brought
into practical and commercial perfection
within the past three or four years. For
street lighting tho arc system is now on-ceded
to be far superior to any other
method of artificial illumination, and
lamps of this kind are being mpidlv
placed upon the principal streets of afl
tho large cities of the world. These
lamps, yielding a flood of liirht equal to
1,500 io 2,000 candles, are displacing the
gas lamps of from twelve to sixteen candle
lamp power, the light from one of the
electric lamps of the first class being
equal to that given by 125 gns lamps.
It is now noted that one of the things
most remarkable in the out-door appearance
of New York in tho evening is the
glowing splendor of the illnu ination of
tho streets and public squares by the
Madison and Union Sou a res are now
lighted by six arc lamp'ot tie Brush sys
torn, of G,000 candle power each, grouped
in a lantern and suspended from a mast
175 feet in height. This concentration of
the lights illuminates a large area of the
citv around each of the parks.
The town of Wabash, Indiana, was the
first to light its streets by this system.
Four arc lights of 3,000 candle power
each, placed on an iron flag-staff on the
dome of the courthouse, at a height of
about one hundred and thirty feet above
tho ground are sufficient for a general illumination
of an area from one-half to
three-quarters of a mile in every direction.
By placing a Riifllcient number of
powerful electric lights upon towers high
enough, it is, no doubt, possible to produce
an amount of liht that would
practically be as efficient as daylight for
tho lighting of all spaces within a reasonable
distance of such towers.
This is tho plan that has been proposed
for the lighting of the Capitol and its surroundings
at Washington, tt is proposed
to place upon the dome of the Capitol,
and upon six towers surrounding it, at a
distance of 1,000 feet, no less than 450
electric lights, ouch of (J.000 candle-power,
or a total light of 2,700,000 candle-power
equal to 200.000 four-foot gas-burner.
Tho effect of such an enorniom massing
of light at such a distanc above the
ground and htirrounding buildings,
would produce a surprising effect, and
within a considerable area would, no
doubt, bo practically equal to daylight.
For lighting largo ureas indoors tho
arcsvstom ia equally as efficient. Thus
tho dining room of tho Continental Hotel
at Philadelphia was formerly lighted
by 144 gas burners. These were replaced
by two aic lamps ot tno isrusn sy&teni,
and much better illumination was secured.
The Grand Pacific Hotel at Chicago
replaced 571 gas burners with sixteen
arc electric lamps. Similar lights are
used in tho Hotel Brunswick, Gilsey
House, Westminister Hotel, Sturtevaut
IIouso, and other New York hotels.
As to comparative danger from accidental
fires from tho electric light, gas,
oil, etc., tho reports of tho Board of Firo
Commissioners of London show that, of
of 1,991 fires, from all causes, 140 wore
attributable to candles, 210 to gas, 149
to lamps, and sixty-four to matches.
None reported from tho electric light.
Boston: Fifty-one from lamps, twenty
from gas, from .matches.
None reported from tho electric light.

Buffalo, Not. 7. Tho Accdemy was
crowded on tbo occasion of the first production
of " Fritz, the Bohemian,1 the now
play written for Joe Emmott by Thomas
Kean, of tho Buffalo Courier. Tho piece Is
with aprologue andthroo
acts. It differs m all respects from' 'Km-motto
othor plays, although be i enabled
id introd'uco several of his captivating songs.
The'pbHs ingeniously woven, and throughout-is
intensely intoreeting; Fritz is given
a heroic attituao at no outset, and displays
it until 'the ond.' 'Bnritigiuo performance
ho was- repeatedly called before the curtain,
and at tho end of the second act Kean' was
accorded tho same honor; With judicious
pruning there'll ho d5ubt that Emmott has
a piece far superior to his previous one.
This.belng Mr. Kean's first effort, ho naturally
feels -much elatod at his evident
