The Now York American says:
Lawyer Abe Hummel, best known at
present as prisoner No. 925 in tho Black
wells Island penitentiary, is having tho
edsiest time in his varied criminal ca
reer sinco tho doors of tho frowning
stone prison clanged to upon him on
Investigation by Now York American
reporters reveals tho astonishing fact
that Hummel, although provided with
all tho comforts of the prison hospital,
is in reality shamming illness and slyly
pulling tho wool over tho eyes of War
den Fallon and Dr. S. L. Dorfmann, tho
Thero is loud grumbling among tho
other prisoners over tho considerate
mannor in which tho little lawyer, sen
tenced to one year's imprisonment for
conspiracy in the Dodge-Morse case, is
treated by tho prison officials.
Hummel takes daily walks on tho
oast side of tho ponitontiary and is of
ten accompanied by Deputy Warden
Murtha, who is said to have been a
member of tho samo political club as
tho little lawyer.
Most amazing fact of nil, Hummel 's
prison garb is a marvel of sartorial art,
for which ho paid tho prison tailor a
good round sum. While Hummel is com
pelled to wear tho light gray suit with
its black stripes, just as is every other
malefactor on tho island, special meas
urements were taken by his tailor and
his felon's suit fits his tiny figure as
well as if ho had purchased Mr. Prison
Stripes from a fashionable Fifth avenue
Hummel took ono of his usual walks
yesterday afternoon, despito tho fact
that he sent word to an American re
porter that ho was in a high fever and
was really to ill to talk to anyone, even
his closest friend.
Prisoners Viow Dainty Comrade
When Abo goes out for his daily por
ambulations, both morning and after
noon, on tho east side of tho island,
whoro curious visitors from Manhattan
can't seo him, all tho other plain, or
dinary prisoners stop work. As thoy
cease hauling coal, digging in the sand
dunes with pick and shovel, or act as
human horses in dragging big wagons
about, thoy breathe curses loud enough
to reach oven tho cars of tho burly
guards who stand about with loaded
rovolvers to guard them.
And when Abo Hummel goes out for
his walks, small wonder that tho ordin
ary malefactors tako notice. Ho even
incites the admiration of tho feminine
section of tho city hospital, just south
of tho penitentiary.
If Hummel 's Fifth avonuc and Broad
way friends could seo him now, thoy
would declare unanimously that despito
his prison stripes tho lawyer is still tho
mirror of fashion and tho mold of form.
Dapper isn 't really the word to describo
Hummel in his prison-made garb. Ho is
tho quintcssonco of sartorial perfection.
Food and meals f No coarso hash and
coarso bread and surpassing coffee for
Hummel. Rathor, tho dainty creations
of a famous French chef, sont daily to
tho island in a homely tin pail, the out
ward appearance of which belies the
gnstronomicnl achievements it contains.
For you must know, good Mnnhat
tanites, that prisoner No. 925 is ill, suf
fering from acuto indigestion and gas
tritis, and it is necessary tluit he rc
coivo proper nourishment. And so per
mission has been granted him by War
don Fallon, as bluff and fine and generous-minded
a warden as over ruled
over Blnckwolls motley inmates, to have
what delicacies ho desires from Man
hattan, so long ns he is able to pay
for the same.

"Another scientific discovery which
I expect to see beforo I die," contin
ued tho man whoso inventions have
dono so much to revolutionize modern
life, "is tho direct generation of elec
tricity from cool. This has already been
achieved in an experimental way. I
havo heard of several men who have
dono it. I myself havo generated an
electrical current by burning carbon and
Chilean saltpctro together in an electro
lite, although at an expense which made
tho process a commercial impossibility.
"Imagine what will be tho conse
quences. Then locomotives will be
thrown into the scrap heap. All trains
will bo run by electricity. No longer
will coa! bo laboriously transported to
tho cities, but there will be great power
plants established at the mouths of the
mines, from which the electricity will
be sent out over tho country by wire.
"There will bo no horses in the
Btreets, no stables, no flies. Wagons
will be propelled by electricity. Houses
will bo lighted entirely by electricity,
for it will be so cheap that it can be
used by tho humblest tenement dweller.
"Ships will no longer be driven by
steam. Electricity will be their motive
power. And then it will be possible to
cross the Atlantic in three days.
"At tho present time nine-tenths of
tho power obtained from coal is lost
by the use of boilers, wheels and dyna
moes. With the direct generation of
the electrical current, therefore, t
world will havo ten times as mtels

"What does he think it mates!"
Thomas A. Edison gave to tho Amer
ican yesterday the first interview since
his announcement on his sixtieth birth
day last February that ho had quit the
enrcer of a money-making inventor for
that of a sciontist.
For the rest of his life, ho says, he
intends to devote all his attention to
scientific problems without a thought
of whether or not their solution would
bring financial gain.'
Though tho Wizard guarded as a se
cret the particular task upon which ho
is at present expending his thought and
energy, he otherwise spoko freely of his
work. Ho discussed many of tho mys
teries into which ho was delving, and
prophesied that even though ho might
fail of solution, ho firmly believed oth
ers would triumph where he failed.
Mr. Edison, for example, made tho
prediction that beforo long scienco
would cnablo tho farmer to enrich his
lands by means of nitrogen from tho
"Tho element necessary for making
land fertile," ho said, "is nitrogen,
which exists in almost inoxahaustible
quantities in tho atmosphoro. Until re
cently, however, tho utilization of at
mospheric nitrogen was regarded as
merely a laboratory demonstration.
Business men said it never could be
obtained cheap enough to sell to tho
fafmcr as a fertilizer.
"But tho day is just about to dawn
when the air will bo mado to give its
nitrogen to tho earth, and to mako it
yield moro abundant harvests and fat
tor herds of cattle. In Norway a plant
has been established which has been
conducted with such good results that
I expect to see atmospheric fortilizcr

tho next ten years.
That such a product will soon bo im
prativcly necessary thoro is no doubt.
Every shipload of wheat and corn which
goes abroad leaves tho United States so
much poorer, not in gold, but in nitro
gon. Sir William Crookes, when ho was
president of the British Association for
tho Advancement of Science, prophesied
that in another quarter of a century
tho enrth would bo drained of nitrogen
to such a degree that there would bo
famine in many regions of tho world.
Ho may havo taken too discouraging a
view of the subject, but nevertheless
his statement had a true basin of fact.
At tho present timo tho bulk of tho
world's supply of nitrogen comes from
tho saltpotro beds of South America,
