Thb New York State officials do not

to suffer, when put into effect, by popu

Persons throughout the country are

Russia in behalf of the Siberian exiles.
Copies of the petition have been mailed
to cities all over the country, and an ef
fort will be made to secure 1,000,000

Thb New York World has had an in
terview with Keeley, the mysterious mo
tor man. The inventor very frankly told
the reporter the whole modus operandi
of his wonderful discovery. Here is the
pith of the whole matter as divulged by
Mr. Keeley himself:
There is a triple sympathetic order of
vibration diverting the positive and neg
ative currents to one general polarized
centre; this rotary action is continuous
when sympathetically associated with
the polar stream.
TllB mischief of it is that emperors,
kings and statesmen are usually cutr
enough not to fight their own bnttlcs.
Their plan is to get one foolish section
of the people to fight against anothcr
section;in which kind of warfare the
emperors, kings and statesmen nre apt
to come out on top, whichever way the
tide of battle turns.
The emperors, kings and statesmen of
Europe have their quarrels, but the dif
ferent peoples have no quarrel. When
the people become wise enough to decline
to go and murder each other for the
pleasure of the emperors, kings and
statesmen, or tax themselves to pay the
bills, there will be very few wars.
A WORLD'S RAILWAY.
America, arguesex-Governor William
Gilpin, of Colorado, is a fallow continent,
capable of sustaining half a billion people
in happiness and plenty. It is the mission
of the United States to be distributor ol
food to the hungry of both Burogie nnd
Asia, lying as it does midway between
The time is at hand when all the shi
of the seas will not be sufficient to carry
the articles of commerce around the
world to the nations fast enough. Then
wilt come necessity for more rapid trans
portation. The plan of this transporta'
tion has been the dream of Governor
Gilpin for forty-seven years. He it wan
who originated the idea of the Pucific
railway connecting New York and San
Francisco, He broke the first ground
for it, and every stage ot the marvelous
development of the west has been the ful
fillmcnt of a prophecy made by Governor
He has made one more' prophecy. It
is that the next great project in the
world's material development will be the
building of what he calls the Cosmopol
Han railway. It is a railroad which
shall girdle the earth. The first link in
the chain is the Transcontinental road of
the United States. Starting from the
western terminus of that, the Cosmopoli
tan rondshnllextcnd northward through
Alnska, skirting the base of the Rocky
mountains, where are plateaus that will
render the building easy.
Then wilt come Ochring's strait. It is
forty-eight miles wide, says this enthu
siast, who has been studying the scheme
nearly half a century. About wid way of
the strait is the island of Diomede, a
large, long island. This would be the
central point on the road, and a track of
twenty miles each side of it would finish
the work. There are no icebergs in Bchr
Ing's strait, because of the warm Pacific
coast stream which flows northward
through it. Once across the strait, which
is a shallow water with hard sand bot
tom, offering no insuperable engineering
difficulties, the road would connect with
the Russian railway through Siberia,
connecting again with western nnd
southern roads through Asia, Europe
and Africa, and the work would be done.

Speaking of stated clerk, of the Asscm
bly yesterday afternoon, Dr. Park told
the following: "Rev. Colin Mclver was
for many years stated clerk of the synod
of North Carolina. On one of his trips
he became lost after dark in the maun
tains. Seeing a light he made lor it, but
was stopped by a high fence. He yelled.
A negro came out and inquired who he
was. 'Colin Mclver, stated clerk of the
synod of North Carolina lost.' The ne
gro went back and reported to his mas
ter that there was a man outside who
said he was 'the greatest sinner in North
Another: "A former Presbyteirnn, di
vine, of Virginia, was very absent minded,
and frequently returning home after an
absence of several days, when his ,wife
would find, to her great mortification,
that he had not chunged his linen Jwhile
led Jfi As
away. When next ne attendee
sembly, she tied a red cord ai
ankle to remind him to put ona clean
shirt daily. When he returned she was
struck with his increased rotundity. An
examination showed that he had indeed
put on a shirt each day, but thnt be had
neglected to remove the soiled ones."
Still another: "Among the colonists
who first came to Tennessee were some
Presbyterians who immediately con
structed a log church, where a preacher
spoke on the following Sabbath to this
text : 'The devilgocth about like a roar
ing lion seeking whom he may devour.'
The text my brethren,' he snid, 'I will
divide into four parts, and consider them
separately. First, who the devil was it ?
Secondly, what the devil was he seeking.
Thirdly, who the devif he was going to
devour, and fourthly, what th devil he
was roaring about.' "
A .called meeting of the Buncombe
County Farmers' Alliance was held in
the court house Inst Fridny. There was
good attendance of farmers. With the
exception of the work of thevariouscom-
mittees there was very little business
transacted of public interest The day
was principally spent in the discussion ol
subjects of interest to the order. Pro
fessor Britt, who was expected to ad
dress the alliance, was prevented from
attending on account of indisposition.
However Rev. W. A. Robertson, presi
dent of Yancey county Alliance, wu
present and made a most excellent speech.
Another called meeting, or rather a mass
meeting, will be held on the first Friday
in June, when a still larger attendance is
funeral of slra. Chapman.
The funeral services of Mrs. Chapman,
which occurred yesterday, were con
ducted by Rev. Dr. Bryan, the pastor,

Captain W. A. Powell, of Atlanta, and
Mr. W. H. Fnucette, of Wnyncsville.
The attendance was very large. Mr. J.
