An Experiment on a Oalf A Ssienlifia Explanation of the Way Iho Dynamo Will Work. AtncrtN, N. Y., Aug. 4.Wanlon Durston exploded this morning the story sent out at a Into hour last night that rt mysterious delegation, prosuma bly composed of tho witnesses of the hilling of Kcmmlcr, had arrived on a special train at midnight and bcon hur tled into the prison. The warden was not In town last night. When ho re turned on tho 7 o'clock train this morn lng, ho said that no Invitations to the execution had yet been Issued. As tho law requires three days notlco to the witnesses, this would appear to Indicate that the execution will not occur beforo Thursday. Kcmmlcr Is reported to be in good health and fair spirits to-day. ltociinsTcn, N. Y., Aug. 4. A Post JZrprett reporter had an Interview with Superintendent Barnes Saturday night In relation to the prospective execution Of Kcmmlcr. It was as follows: "Do you think tho execution will be canted out?" said the reporter. "I think It will," replied Mr. Dames. "Do you expect that tho apparatus Will work effectively:' "Asanclccttlclan, I have no doubt that It will. No electrician who under ttouls the subject and knows what the cppaiatus Is, can doubt that It will kill Lim." "What size wire will be used for conveying the current from the dynamo to the chair T" "An ordinary electric light wire." "Is the dynamo that Is to generate the electricity similar to fiosc used for electric lighting purposes T " "No. Tho electric light current Is continuous, whilo that to be usud on Kcmmlcr Is alternating. The dynamo is different. Tbo alternating current reverses Its direction eight huudred times in a second. It is not the amount, but the Intensity of the electric current that has tho killing power." "Do you moan to say that the current that will kill him will go back and forth through him several hundrod times t" "Yes." "What comparison doos the current you will use bear to tho current of an incandescent electric light?" "Tho incandescent light is slxtcon candle power about 180 volts. Wo will Lave 1,600 volts power In the dynamo at Auburn, but a 1,500 volt currout Is What will be turned on." "Do you think ho will suffer any from tho shock?" "No. The electricity will be applied to his skull and spinal column in such a way that the current will paralyse the brain Instantly and destroy all sensa tion. In order to feel any pain the sensation must be carried to the brain by the nerves." Do you think there will l any break of the skin?" "We hope not. If there should be, the papers would make such a fuss over It We think that we have that pro vided against " "Did you ever get a shock of elec tricity yourself? "Yes. Hut I cannot staml any amount. I was knocked Insensible by an accidental current once. The appa ratus at the office got out of order one night and I was called to see what was the trouble- There was sa insulated handle that I should have used, but I had a trick of running my finger along the edge of the machine to feel the current, and this time it knocked rae down as the wire had bees crossed by an clictric wire.

"Do you think he has weakened, as reported In the newspapers to-night 1" 'No, he was sick with a complaial of the bowels in the hot weather, but I do not believe that he has broken down, as they say."

Taken to Tank tir n llrailllan oillctal ror Ills Conduct. The roseate accounts of the visit of the squadron of evolution to foreign ports do not seem to bo justified in every Instance by private advices from abroad. Particularly Is this true of tho story of tho whlto squadron at Wo dc Janeiro. Tho follow ing extract from a letter from a prominent UrazIIIan official to a pontic man Inofficial life in this city concern ing Admiral Walker would seem to In dicate that tho young Republic did not regard tho visit of tho squadron very favorably, while the subsequent acts of that officer created n great deal of 111 feeling. The letter, which Is dated July 0, re fers to the squadron In tho following terms; "Ycslcrday they wcro offered a splen did picnic at the Jnrdlnc Uotanlco, to day a luncheon on tho Corcorado; and nil theso days soma efforts aro being made to honor them. I am sorry to say how Indifferent to It nil they arc, and how little tatcirfaire the admiral pos sesses. "The Brazilian Navy, as well as President Deodora Fonsecn, have asked him to remain a few days longer, to enable them to clvo some festivals In their honor. Admiral Walkor's reply Is, 'No.' Doing orderod forward by his Government, ho would sail early on the Otb, or after the great bill of the Fourth of July In their honor. What would Iho delay of n few days maltn? They mutt stay somewhere. This city Is healthy, It Is the coolest sea son In many years, and why did they come If not to please us? Wo wcro not anxious to see thorn, but now feel pro voked at such malconduct. Their con stant expressions arc "Good enough for us at home." "Every one comments on such con duct, but being Americans nothing else could be expected by those trying to honor them. However tho nation Is cvor badly represented abroad. And hero Is tho head of the white squadron afraid of his shallow oxactly like old Admiral Ilralnc." "New York Is good enough for us," etc. "They seem woll content with their own divine mission In this world; sorry to come, and happy to go." HOT A FREE-TRADE PARTY. A UcTeaie of the Democratic Position On tho Tarltr. Kditor Vritit: The Washington Vot of yesterday, in an editorial headed "Senator Plumb on the Tariff." says as follows: "Tho Democratic uewspapers will naturally distort the Ideas advanced by the Kansas Senator and attempt to make it appear that he has embraced frco-irade sentiments." This is Insincere, for the 1'ott well knows that the Democratic- party Is not a free trade party and whoever attempts to mislead the people by the assertion that it Is (Id the race of tariff bills and tariff rales proposed by Democratic Representatives and Senators In Con- tress) shows gross Ignorance or worse, ecretary Blaine and Senator Plumb are simply propounding; and advocating Democratic doctrine. "The greatest good to the greatest number and no class legislation." All Uguluttion im potiug high dutu to proUct tpecial in duttrit it flat legislation The editorial further says: "The masses of the people, however, are not ignorant oa the tariff question. They well understand that an import duly Increases the cost of an article," and yet the 1'ott published, without dissent or cowwent, the statements wade by members of Congress that blub import duties placed upon certain articles pro duced in this country had reduced the price of those articles' It was gravely asserted in the House of Representatives, whea the duty oa tia was under discussion, that a nigh import duty placed on tin would reduce the price of tia.

On Saturday evening about 15 o'clock there woe an exhibition at Ftltr. Renter's place, on the corner of Four-and-a-half street and Pennsylvania avenue, that was not down on the bill of fare. It was Reutcr's opening, or rather anniversary of his going into business on that comer, and there were seventy five or a hundred )eople present when a very ATTHACTIVK tOOKt.Vfl LADV, neatly attired In light summer raiment, presented herself at the side door and asked one ot the waiters If he would please call out Mr. W. T. Sweet. Tho waiter compiled with her request and Mr. Sweet, who was seated at a table with a party of friends, jumped up promptly and went to the door, as he thought his wife was there. As he came within sight of the open door the lady rushed at iilm and milling a black snake whip from the folds of her dress iieoan ritAtrrtzixu him most unmercifully about the face ami shoulders. Sweet did not make any effort to strike the woman, but threw his arras in front of his face to protect It from the slashes of the whip, which fell thick and fast. The woman was very much out of temper about something, and no one present wanted to interfere, as ttiey all Kerned confident that she was only re senting some Insult that had been ollcrcd. About this time one of the bystanders said "lc him, Carlo, sic him, Carlo." With this A LAIKIX HULL I) XI which belonged to Mr. Renter sprang frcui under a table and began grabbing at the lady's garments. "Some gentleman please call that dog off, for I cannot give that scoundrel hi deserts with him In my way." said the woman. The dog was called, but In the meantime Mr. Sweet, with his arms still guarding his face, picked his way through the crowd at the bar. and made his escape through the Pennsylvania avenue entrance to the building. In the meantime some one ran to the patrol box on the opposite corner sod Ottlcers Walsh and Costelloput la their appearance. Both Mr. .Siveet and the woman, who gave the name of MHS.
