The Trip tc and From Oberaninier-
The Wonderful ranalon Vlny Wit
weened and Briefly . Described
((alat Mrew.es Alans the Way to the
Special Correspondence to the A hoc:
Lczerh, Jul j 27. Munich, where we
pent the 19th, 20th and 21st is a large
city, aod like all these continental cities,
has its old and new quarters very unlike
too tbey are. Nothing could be finer than
ita broad handsome streets and magnifi
cent modern buildings. Galleries of art
where the state has collected treasures in
painting and sculpture articles of "big
otry and virtue" from all parts of tne
world, representing every period of its
history. The late King Ludwig II whose
unhappy malady and death by drowning
was so recently noted for his love of
art, music, etc., bad collected treas
ures from all the world. One good re
sulting from the despotic power of mon
arcbs is their ability, if so disposed, to
. gather collections of art and open them
to their subjects for study and delight,
and this is what most of the monarchs of
Europe have done to a great extent.
Leaving Munich by rail at 9:50 a. ra.
one passes through a lovely country
diversified with meadow and mountain,
lake and forest, skirting the shores of
Sternberg lake where Ludwig met his
death, and the pretty little castle is seen
on the opposite shore, the place of his
residence at the time, reaching Oberaen
at 2 p. m. The train was of immense
length and crowded with pilgrims to the
Passion play. A carriage drive up the
mountain two hours along a perfect road
way built by the Bavarian government
since 1880 discloses the most charming
views of mountain and valley abounding
with graceful waterfalls in every direc
tion. A shorter path for foot travelers
enables the footmen often to "catch up"
with the carriages, and the whole way up
was enlivened with pictures of pilgrims
on foot men. women and children
peasants in their gorgeous holiday coss
tumes of green, red, yellow and blue,
with great chains of silver disks and in
numerable rows of great buttons, short
leggings of bright colored kntt wool
reaching from knee to above the shoe top
others leaving bare the leg between the
shoe and knee; green peaked hats with
buckles and cock feathers; priests in any
number with cossocks and wide brimmed
hats; Monks in brown habits with bare
nead, sandals and rosaries hanging from
' their coarse cord girdles, all eagerly press
ing to the wonderful pliy. Long before
reaching Oberaramergau, the great berg
which stands at the head of the valley,
comes in sight, and ou its very summit
glistens tha great cross placed there in
1887 by the villagers. In fact all along
the road, as everywhere in Belgium, Ger
many and Switzerland, one sees little
shrines on mountain sdJ in field, along
the pathways, in streets of cities and over
the shops dedicated to the Blessed Vir
gin and other saints the "Rood" is seen
everywhere, often with lights burning be
fore it, garnished with flowers and other
ornaments, and adults and children de
outly cross themselves in passing, lift
the hat and bend the knee to the "sign of
our salvation." It is very touching to see
the mothers with little infants in their
arms stop at one of these wayside shrines
and after making their own genuflection,
gently take the baby's little band and sign
the cross on its breast and forehead
Some one may call it superstition; I pre
fer to call it faith.
Soon after beginning the descent Into
the Valley of Oberammergau, you pass
close beside the famous Monastery of
Ettal, still grand in buildings and extent.
Most oi the foot pilgrims stop here for
devotion, both going and returning. At
Oberammergau we found accommoda
tions awaiting us at tne Hotel de l'Poste,
. perhaps the best in the place, and
cheering welcome for our party of seven,
all engaged for us before leaving New
York for this special day July 23. How
can one describe the crowd which
greeted us. The little hamlet of 1.500
was full every house occupied, and no
doubt barns and outhouses also.
The theatre seats 4,000 or more and
was crowded. We were told that on the
previous Sunday there were 4,000 who
could not obtain seats in the theatre, and
the pi ay was again given on Monday to
- accom modate them. The shops were
filled with people buying carved work
and pictures, and booths everywhere
were selling bread, cheese, beer, sausa
ges, frnit, pictures, carved work, lib
rettos of the play, etc.. till late into tbe
night and again at 5 o'clock in the
morning. Precisely at 7 p. m. on Tues
day night a company of players
marched from tbe upper end of tbe
village to tne theatre, with music, ac
companied by a vast crowd of people,
and on Wednesday rooming at 5
o'clock tbe peculiar notes of the Swiss
bugle were sounded, and all tbe players,
a well as the great mass of the people,
attended mass at the pretty little restored
church of tbe village. It rained in tor
rents at 5 o'clock, but my friend who
attended mass at that time said that mass
was being said continually at five altars
till 7 o'clock, and the church was crowd
ed, the people coming and going. Among
tbe celebrants of the mass Archbishop
Corrigan, of New York, was noticed.
Tickets for the theatre were issued for
only the number of seats, Feats all being
numbered, so there was no discomfort.
Our tickets had all been secured before
leaving New York, for this particular
day, so we bad do difficulty whatever,
and on our arrival at the theatre at 7:45
we were shown our seats by the usher in
the same orderly way in which the thing
is done at Harper's theatre. The stage
is substantially built of brick or stone,
plastered, the front of the stags being
open to tne sky. The Iront seats, per
naps one intra or tne entire seating
capacity, were also open to tbe sky; the
remainder, gradually rising, being under
cover; a frame building of the cheap
cnaracier, due aamiraDly arranged for
comfort and order. Tbe rain continued
till 11 o clock, and the chorus of some
twenty men and women, the orchestra
and those in front seats of the theatre,
were exposed to the weather, but they
took no notice whatever, and the play
went on as usual. In fact it has rained,
I am told, every Sunday of the play this
year, ana now me chorus can remain in
tbe rain all day aod sing almost contino
uously, without illness, is something
wmcu l can t understand.
The play begins at 8 o'clock, precisely,
the time being indicated by the firing of
cannon placed on an elevation near tbe
village. Every seat was occupied, the
doors were closed and not allowed to be
opened to admit anyone till the after
noon performance at 1:80, a capi
tal arrangement, as it prevents
all interruption and annoyance. Your
tickets are "no good" unless you
are present at the opening. There is an
intermission from 12 to 1:30. .and the
play is completed at about 5 p. m. Every
one is hushed and there is no applause
till all is over, when one grand cheering is
given. 1 cannot describe tbe play now in
detail it exceeds all that has been said
of it in its simplicity, and beauty, and
reverence, and sublimity. One spirit
seems to animate all the performers
that of rendering the awful scenes of the
Passion of our Lord with intense realism
and devotion. The stage with its entran-
ces and appointments is admirably adap
ted for the purpose. ' There is no crowd"
ing, not the least confusion, although
over 600 people are often seen at one
time in the progress of the play men,
women and children, sheep and oxen,
doves and asses. The scenery is very
beautiful, and the dresses are true to the
times and characters such a wonderful
combination of color and style true to the
spirit of the " play, and also to artistic
taste, I venture to say was never before
seen on any stage. There was no burry
on the part of anyone, but the greatest
deliberation, and when I say that tbe
whole story ot the Passion was exhibited
from the fall and expulsion in E ien, tbe
death of Abel, the Patriarch Isaac' his
toric scenes of the old testament, pro
phets and kings, with tbe complete gos
pel history, tableaux after tableaux in
their order, with dramatic scenes and
long dialogues, and finally tbe resurrec
tion and ascension, with their consequent
conversions; you will wonder how it was
all given in tbe eight hours devoted to it.
There was no intermission whatever dur
ing tbe whole time of the p'ay. for while
the scenes '7ere being changed, etc.. the
chorus was in the front of tbe curtain
singing the prologue of tbe oncoming
act. The acting was something wonder
ful, and when one remembers that the
actors every one were ordinary peas
ants, wood cutters and carvers, farmers,
and inn keepers, in every grade of man
ual labor among men, and women, and
children, all of the deep piety so common1
to these high Tyrol regions, the strange
ness qf tbe whole thiug crowds on one
with almost paralyzing force. Months
must past by beforo any true realization
of tbe play can come to one.
We returned to Munich the same
night under the bright moonlight of the
Tyrol, each occupying his own corner in
the railway carriage too full of wonder
and thankfulness for conversation. The
next day's ride was to Innsbrock, in the
Austrian Tyrol five hours the whole
journey a thing of bea ity, and Innsbrock

M. Pfatischer. representative of the
Accumulator company of 'ew York, who
is in Dubuque putting rj p the storage
battery electric street car lias furnished
the Telegraph the following description
of the new system:
"The car is equipped wit!i two twelve
horse power motors, each being geared
to an axle. These motors are boxed in
to prevent the accumulation of dust; the
gearing is also boxed in and is tun in
oil, so that no dust can et in, and 'at the
same time reduce tbe friction and wear
and tear to a minimum. I i most over
head systems the speed regulator is
placed on each platform, whereas on tbe
storage battery car there is but one speed
regulator which is underneath the car,
and which is operated by a shaft from
each platform. The gong is operated by
means of a push button ith the foot,
and the car is sixteen feer. long, with a
seating capacity of twenty -two people,
but of course it is possible to crowd in
from eighty to one hundre j. The res
ervoir of electricity, or. as i: is generally
termed, the storage battery, is placed un
derneath the seats and forms the sewers
of electricity for the motors; and there is
also an electric brake attachment some
thing with which no other electric car is
supplied. The accumulator is of the
Faure type a French inven ion and the
only practical accumulator in existence.
Its consists of a number of perfor
ated lead plates, which perforations
are filled up with a paste of red lead and
litharge. These plates are placed in rub
ber cells, which are filled with 'diluted
sulphuric acid. If an ele.:tric current
from the dynamo is sent tirough these
cells it produces a chemical change on the
plates. This change creates a potential
or difference of electric presiure between
the positive and the negative plate, and
should these cells be connected with the
motor an electric current would flow
through them and cause rotation. This
rotation would then be transmitted to tbe
axles by means of gearing, which, as
stated above, is completely immersed in
oil. The operation of a nad equipped
wun the storage battery sys'.em is as fol
"tvery car, said Mr. Pfatischer. "is
provided with two sets of cells, one set
being in use on the car while the other
set is being charged or filled . It requires
tne same lengtn ot titn to 3' ore electnci
ty that the car runs. For listance: One
set of cells has furnished current to ran
a car forty mile?; then the c ir is run into
tbe depot and the other set. which ha9
been fully charged ir. the meantime, is
placed on the car. and the litter fa ready
for another run of fortv n iles; and, hs
soon as this supply is exhausted, the oth
er set is again charged, and this process
is repeated as otten as desired.
The advantage of the storage battery
over the overhead system are very great.

Second It is perfectly free from dan

the cause of numerous complaints all

The Telegraph gives the following ac

made its initial or trial trip. Mr. J. A
Kbomberg, Jr., superintendent of the
line, bad charge of tbe running of the
car. When the car left the ilepot it was
headed for tbe northern terminus of the
road, moving off without a hitch and run
nlng at the rate of about fifteen miles an
hour. The sidewalks on br th sides of
Couler avenue were lined witli men, wo
men and children, who cl eered and
waved handkerchiefs as tbe P.oneer stor
age battery car flew over the rai's. The
spectacle of a car running at such
rapid rate, without any vifible means
of propulsion was indeec a novel
one, and attracted the attention of all
who beheld it. The return trip included
a run down Main street, the s dewalks of
which, as in tbe case of Couler avenue
were crowded with people, many of whom
cheered and threw their bats iato the air;
and among those who swung lis hat was
a prominent ex-mayor. There was no
perceptible lessening of the speed either
on tbe fifteenth or First street grade, and
to all sppearances the car ran Just as fast
as on the level track. The car was run
over the. en tire system, with th) exception
of Clay street, where there sre a few
switches which need slight alteration
The people everywhere were very enthus
iastic and cheered as the car sped along

working of the car, but proposes remain'
