another blow to McKinley prosperity,

only another argument that sooner or

The decision hnntled down Wednesday
by the California Burpreme court in the
Durrant case sweeps awayjevery vestige
of hope lor the murderer of Blanche L"a
meni. and he will in a few day- ba sen?
tenced to be hung. This in many respects
has been the most remarkable criminal
case in the annals or the Pacific coast.
For month.* the whole country was alive
over the proceedings as published it! the
daily papers, hut as the months went by
into years and the case dragged itself
from court to court, interest in the result
began to abate, and even the circum?
stances attending the murder h i w faded
?roui the public mind. It. is this detay
in our criminal courts, the granting of
new tria's on the most trivial technicali?
ties, tb at robs the law of half its punitive
effect. Let'Jour courts establish the fact
that punishment, swift and sun, is to*be
meted out for every ofTi n-c committed
against the majesity of the law, and it
will do more to restrain crime und v'ce
than'all other efforts combined. So far
as any moral effect in I he case ofDurmnt
is concerned, it has been utterly lost by
the dittitorlnesH of the punishment.

is much about this custom of Christinas

No previous survey of a route to con?
nect by waterway the Atlantic and Pa?
cific oceans can compare iu its exhaustive
preparations with the expedition now on
its way to the eastern coast [.of Nicara?
gua. Of the importance of the project
from the standpoint of commercial inter?
est it is not necessary to Bpaak. From
the middle of the sixteenth century down
to tho present time numerous projects
have luen put fool toshorten by thou?
sands of miles the route betwecu the old
world and the western coast of the Amer?
ican continent. The nio.st popular of
these was the Panama route, which un?
der iJe Le&seps, proved _so stupendous a
failure aud well nigh bankrupted France.
As far back as the administration of
President Grant, a commission appointed
by him recommended the advisability of
what since become known as the Nicaia
guan route. Four months at farthest, it
is thought, Will be sufficient for the pros
ent expedition to make all necessary pre?
liminary surveys, and will settle finally
the practicability of_the scheme to join
i togetei two gteat. oceans.
It would seem that centuries of civili?
zation have produced but little ^result
after all upon the innate cruelty of human
nature. The gladiatorial combats of an?
cient Home, the struggles to the death
with fierc? beasts in the arena, before an
Applauding public, have passed away and
live only )tn the history of those iimes;but
does not the same principle underlying
all such exhibitions of cruelty still exist

ing of the. Madison .Square Haidens to
witness the six days' bicycle race in pro?

that many of these,in their mad desire to
stay in to the finish, will etui by makiug

worse still, inmates of the Insane asy?

100 PICTURES A MINUTE.
A Photograph Machine of Marvel?
In an article published in the Popular
Science Monthly au "Animated Pic?
tures," by .1. Miller Pair, the nut hoi
points out the possibilities of the cinema
toitrnpb iu a very interesting manner.
Wu have bitlierto been concerned with
motion pictures of the ordinary type ?
those, namely, which 'reproduce with ac?
curacy the movements of tho original
sceues. In order .to fecure this result it
is essential that our pictures be ."taken11
and exhlblttd at the same rate per uuit
of timd. Where this condition has not
been fulfilled, it ,'s manifest that the pic
lure turned objects must appear to move
either quicker or more slowly than theit
origiunls If the difference in rate be
small, its results will hardly be noticea?
ble; if large, a curious but '.awkward anil
unnatural effect will be produced.
Suppose.now tho mechanism of our
camera be altered in such wise that suc?
cessive exposures may be made at rela?
tively long intervals of time, while tho
duration of each exposure can be varied
at will. With this end in view, the
camera should be provided with clock?
work capable of running for twenty-four
j hours continuously. Thus equipped, we
should be ready to experiment on objects
I ?such as growing plants ?whose
1 changes are of too gradual a nature to lie
perceived by the eye.
~ An ordinary house plant?let us say a
gernuium, ahul'lou, or hyacuith?would
form an admirable subject for the pur?
pose. The [photographs might be taken
under the electric light at intervals of an
hour or mote, though plants of rapid
growth (such as climbers) might well he
i photographed at much shorter intervals.
As a uniform illumination is essential,
it would be necesary to exclude daylight
while taking the negatives. At nicht
the*Iigbt source could be maintained
continuously?a condition which tends,
as is well known,to stimulate the growth
of plants. The experiments might ex?
tend over a period of weeks, or even of
many months, according to the nature of
tho plant*selected. Hut the resulting
(Ihr, when placed in the cinematograph
for exbibtion, would bo ."reeled oil"" iu
?he course ot a minu'e or two, so that wo
should have, as it were, a greatly magni?
fied representation of the movements in?
volved in'plant growth. If, for example,
our pictures were taken at half-hourly
intervals, and shown at a speed of 50 per
second, the apparent rate of growth of
the plant would be increased no less than
ninety thousand times. A slower rate
would evidently correspond to a dimin?
ished |time interval between successive
negatives: and this interval should in all
cases ho so chosen as to insuie gradual
(though distinctly perceptible) changes in
the resulting pictures.
I Such views could not fail to produce an
effect at once marvelous, unique and in?
structive. As pictured upon t lie canvas,
the plants would grow and develop before
the eyes of onlookers, throwing out leaf
upon leaf, aud visibly increasing their
dimensions. Here and there a How er or
Hower cluster might make its appear?
ance, the Individual blossoms burs ting
tnrtb suddenly ami remainiug: visit le. for
I a briel pel i d only. The process ?s clearly
, applicable to greenhouse or iimoor plants
I of every description, from stately palms
I or tree ler: s down to the most delicate
j mosses or lichens. Thus, the general
? phenomena of plant gro?vth may bo lllus
j trat id wilh a vividness never before roal
| isced. As object lessons iu botany, such
motion pictures would be Invaluable,
while the general public, net less than
1 the advanced student of science, would
regard them with feelings of the keenest
Instead < f photographing an entire
plant ire might direct our efforts to the
lepresenlation of its more interesting de
? laila Thts an expanding leaf, bud or a
I flower .stuik would furnish highly at?
tractive views for the cinematograph.
i The ndcroscoi e, too, could ha brought to
j beat, and with its aid we should be enn
! bled to tlepict the more delicate and snb
I tie processes of vegetable growth. Such
I optical studies would be Wit merely in?
structive in the ordinary sense of"; that
', term, but tiny would be likely to throw
new light ou biological problems Of the
! deepest interest for we are here con?
cerned with changes whicli cannot be di
I rectly observed, and whosa nature can
I only be imperfectly apprehended from a
j comparison of ordinary photographs I
i taken for tne purpose. We know, for j
example, that common instantaneous I
views of men or animals in motion con?
vey a mist Imperfect idea of the actual
movements involved iu walking or run j
ning: and a similar remark would doubt- j
less apply with greater force in cases
where the pictured objects were under- j
going changes of complex physical na?
ture: so thai the human eye, aided by
sensation oi motion, might; well succeed
in bringing to light laws or relations
hitherto unrecogui/.ed by botanists.
This graphic method should theoreti?
cally he apnlicable to insects and ani
nials as well as to plants. In practice,
! however, it can be successfully applied
I only to the lower and the higher foiin.s of
I .animal life. On the. one hand we cult 1(1
I picture the growth of certain lowly or
! ganisms in the bonier land between the
animal and vegetable worlds; on the
other we could portray tho development
of a child, or even ti e life changes of a
human being from childhood to old age.
Pictures of the latter tlass n ay evidently
be taken at. daily intervals: uniformity in
position and expression, as well as in the
clothing or drapery of the subject, being
essential requisites to success in all such
The application o: this method to out
door objects will in general be greatly re?
stricted owing in part tc the variable
light and partly also to the influence of
wind and weather. Some picturesque
effects could, however, be obtained by
photographing natural scenery under va?
rying angles of solar illumination?espe?
cially in mountainous regions and ^esr
the time of sunrise or sunset, when tho
most, striking changes would be mani?
fested Seasonal variations, too, might
be Illustrated by depicting scenerj in a
forest from day today for months in suc?
cession. Owing to the gradual nature of
such changes it would bo practicable to
take several negatives at about the same
hour of each day, an actlnonieter being
used, and the exposures varied in accord?
ance with its indications. The opera?
tions might thus be omitted during bad
weather, an additional number of photo?
graphs being taken on succeeding line
days. Some very pleasing views for the
cinematograph could without doubt be
obtained by this mode of procedure.
