The Irish World Demands His Nomination. HEAVY RAINS IN THE SOUTH. Great Damage Caused the Floods. By POLITICAL. The National Republican Committee sir. Jones made Chairman and Samuel KeiHDden Secretary. New York, June 26. The corridors of the Fifth Avenue Hotel swarmed with Republi can politicians to-day. Nearly all the mem bers of the National and State committees ar rived this morning and meetings of both committees ware announced to be held at at noon. Stephen B. Elkias, ex-Senator Chaffee, John B. Lynch of Mississippi, the temporary chairman of the Chicago conven tion, Powell Clayton of Arkansas, ex-Senator Fessenden of Connecticut, Garrett H. Hobart of New Jersey and Colonel George W. Hooker of Vermont were conspicuous in the gathering. Early in the day Stephen B. Elkins and a few other gentlemen, members of the National committee, whose names were not divulged, held a private consultation at which it was understood an attempt was made to complete the slate before calling the committee together. It was well understood that there was no opposition to B. F. Jones, the wealthy manufacturer of Fittsbnrg, who had been decided upon as chairman of the oommittee. It was not so easy, however, to agree upon a secretary as it was on the head of the committee. Colonel Hooker wanted to be his own successor and announced that he would make a vigorous fight for the place. Ez-3enator Fessenden was Colonel Hooker's chief opponent and his friends said he would stick to the last. Garrett H Hobart, of New Jer. sey, was also mentioned for the place, but if that gentleman had any ambi tion in that direotion,it was of short duration The National committee met at 12 30, half an hour after the time set for the meeting. The roll was called. It showed that each State was represented by its committeeman or by proxy, with the exception of Georgia, Minnesota, Texas and Utah, Wyoming, Mon tana and Washington territories. The only business done was the appointment of a com mittee of three on organization consisting of J. Manchester Hajes, of Maine, Gar rett H. Hobart of New Jersey and Frank Morey of Louisiana. The oom mittee then took a recess for half an hour. It is understood that the reason the committee did not go right through its work and finish it was on account of being unable to decide between Colonel Hooker and ex Senator Fessenden for secretary. The ma jority of the committee favored Hooker personally, but hesitated about making an issue until it was first definitely settled which of the two gentlemen was preferred by Mr. Blaine. It would be naturally sup posed that Elkins would know all about this, but if he did he was unable to satisfy some of Mr. Hooker's friends on this point. After reassembling the National committee completed its organization by the election of B F Jones as chairman, and ex-Senator Fes senden and Colonel Hooker as secretaries. Mr Elkins succeeded in satisfying the committee that Mr Fessenden was Mr Blaine's first ohoice and Connecticut's representative was accord ingly made secretary with Colonel Hooker as his assistant. A B Derrick and Birdseye Blackman were chosen electors at-large and Charles Minzesseimer was chosen to fill the place of Joseph W Harper, resigned. The National executive committee consists of Messrs Chaffee, William Mason, Haynes, Crapo, Saunderson, Elkins, Hobart, Hooker, Lawson, Hnmpbrey, Blair, Clayton, Morey, Conger, Sanborn, Howe, Leland, Lynch, ClarksoD, Layton and Bollins. The committee on finance are: B T Jones, Pennsylvania; Horace Davis, California; J D Lawson, New York; D J Littler, Illinois; W W Crapo, Massachusetts; George W Hooker, Wisconsin; James A Garry, Maryland; E H Bollins, New Hampshire. The committee adjourned to meet at the oall of the chair. WDrklDKmen vail for IE tier. Boston, Jnne 26.

No other man can unite so effectually all the elements comprising the industrial classes of the en tire oonntry, and it is our firm belief that his name is a talisman to lead us on to victory and that the nomination of any other in the Democratic convention ensures defeat to the party. Resolved, That we take this occasion to again pledge to Benjamin F. Butler our united and our untiring support for his hon esty, integrity and fidelity to the interests of the workingmen throughout America. The Irl.h World tor Batler-Bat Will Support Blaine if He is not Nominated. Njsw Yobk, Jane 26. The Irish World to morrow will say: "As the time for holding the Democratic national convention draws nigh the popular feeling in favor of General Butler's nomination grows stronger. It would be a grave mistake on the part of the Democratic managers to suppose that in the event of General Butlsr's failure- to get the nomination they could keep voters loyal to the Democratic party. If ignoring the wishes of the rank and file of the Democracy the poli tical wire pullers set aside the only man whose name has evoked enthusiasm among the masses, there would be such a stamped.) from the Democratic ranks as will astonish these wire pullers. We warn them in time that there is a spirit abroad that cannot be safely trifled with. The popular feeling towards General Butler is rooted in the belief that he more than any other man is the champion of a policy that is truly American. Next to him in the advance of such a policy comes Mr. Bl sine, who, in case General Butler does not get the nomination, will undoubtedly receive the great bulk of the vote that will go to the Democratic party if it places General Butler's name at the head of its ticket. If these managers so manipulate things at Chicago that General Butler does not receive the nom ination the Irish World will advocate the election of Mr. Blaine and will use whatever influence it may possess to place him in the White House. We believe the time has come when a more vigorous Ameri can policy ought to be substituted for the sycophantic spirit towards England that has so long ruled the councils of the nation. For this reason we shall work for the elec tion of Mr. Blaine if the Democracy refuses to select as its standard bearer General Bat ler, the only men who can save it from de feat. It is for the Democratic national con vention to decide whether General Batler or Mr. Blaine shall succeed President Arthur. Let it present some other . candidate than General Butler to the Democratic voters, but if it does we tell the Democratic convention that its nomination will be a signal for a bolt that will shatter the Demooratio party to pieces. Vermont Going in Strong; for Blaine. BubXjTngton, June 26. Hon. George Niohols has resigned the chairmanship of the Bepublican State oommittee after a service of many years. The oommittee will meet in this city next Tuesday to elect his succes sor and choese an executive committee to lay out the work for a vigorous campaign. The Hew Vora State Committee. Nxw Yobk, June 26. The Republican State committee, which met to day at the Fifth Avenne Hotel with closed doors, via not altogether harmonious. The ohairmani ship of the committee having been settled in favor of Mr. Warren there arose qsiite a breeze over the proposition to elect Andrew S Draper chairman of the executive commit- 'Jr. dK;,"e? draw' tD0U8 .u" , . ! ram scored ten points to every one made by tee.

The State oommit tee adjourned to meet at the call of the chair. THE WEST. Ohio. The Garfield Monument A Hartford Man's Design Win. the Pint Prize. Cleveland, O., Jane 26. The trustees of the Garfield National Monument association to-day decided upon the design for a' monu ment. They called to their aid as experts on monumental matters, Calvert Yaux, of New York, and Henry Van Brunt, of Boston. Both came here separately and made examin ation of the designs furnished and gave the committee their criticisms. Neither had any knowledge as to the other's views or as to the authorship of the designs.- The first prize ($1,000) was unanimously given by the trus tees and experts to George H. Keller, of Hartford, Conn.; the second prize ($750) to Charles F. and Julius A. Sweinferth, of Cleveland; the third prize ($500) to Moffatt & Doyle, of New York. The artist to whom the first prize is awarded adopted a heavy tower for the form of the monument, con taining a carved and soulptured tomb. The tower as designed rises from broad terraces reached by widespreading steps forming a dignified approach and projecting arch. The base contains a vestibule, on one side of which is the keeper's office ; on the other a room for relics and a visitors' register. The vestibule leads up to a round vaulted chamber of stone, the roof of whioh is carried on eight massive polished granite columns in a circle around the sculptured tomb in the center of a pavement tiled in harmonious colors and designs, the whole lighted by richly mullioned windows. An aisle or am bulatory outside of the columns surrounds the chamber, the walls ot which are deo orated with niches for statues or vases of flowers. A spiral stone staircase leads from the ambulatory to the top of the tower, 250 feet from the ground in height, winding about the tomb be low. Triple windows at irregular in tervals command extended views for miles in every direction, at one point looking out over Garfield's birthplace eight miles distant. Outside of the monument above the deeply recessed portal is a terra cotta band, or frieze of sculpture six feet in height, extending around the base of the tower, which is forty feetssquare. The frieze is divided into panels with bas-reliefs representing Garfield as an educator, soldier and statesman, the long anxious watching of the world over his death bed and the funeral procession from Elbe ron to Cleveland. Gar field's remains will be enolosed in a crypt be low the level of the chamber under a carved tomb. The family vault is in the rear of the chamber. Murder Will Oat A Man Arrested After Twenty Years On Suspicion of KilHus; His Wife. Wabben, June 26. Dateotives who have been during the past week working up the case are now certain that they have suffi cient evidence to warrant the arrest of Har rison Nesh, a wealthy farmer of this place, for the murder of his wife twenty years ago. Mrs. NeBh was sitting at a window late one evening when she was killed by a rifle shot from some unknown person. Suspicion was directed at the time first to her husband and later to several of her relatives and neigh bors, bat finally died out. Nesh has since borne a good reputation, but some of the older residents of the town have never ceased to believe him guilty of the crime. Wiscensin. Tar and Peat hers Punishment Meted Out to a Despicable Wretch. Madison, June 26. A young man named Lawrence Worth, residing near Baraboo, re" ceived a coat of tar and feathers from indig nant citizecs yesterday. Worth some weeks ago married a beautiful but rather demented niece of Colonel Ableman of Ableman's sta tion. He immediately commenced to trade on her charms and finally started down the Chicago and Northwestern railroad, prosti tuting her for gain. Ha returned yesterday and was at once taken in hand and received the punishment he so richly deserved. v Indiana. . A Train Plunges Into a River. Loganspobt, June 26. A construction train of thirteen cars crashed through the Terre Haute and Logansport railroad bridge over the Wabash river to-day. The river was swollen from the recent rains. The en gineer, Thomas Grace, and the fireman, Wil liam Seath, were crushed beneath the wreck and ki led. Their bodies were recovered from under water, both cruelly mangled. Brakeman McDowell jumped through a win dow and escaped by swimming to land. The bridge has been considered unsafe for years. The loss to the railroad company is about $30,000. HEW YORK. Mitchell Taken Suddenly Sick His Meeting With Sullivan Probably Off. New Yobk, June 26. Charles Mitchell, the English pugilist, who has been training under Billy Madden for his match next Mon day evening with John L. Sullivan, has been suddenly taken sick. Everything was all right until last Saturday afternoon, when Mitchell, who was on the track at Pleasure Bay running a mile, was snddenly overoome by the heat and fell down. He was carried into the hotel and remained unoonsoious for two hours. On Sunday afternoon Mr. George Slater and Billy Madden brought him to New York and took him to the Ashland House where he complained of severe pains in his head, but left with his trainer at 6 o'clock that evening for Troy. Notwithstanding the injunctions of his physicians, he sparred with his trainer at a pionio there on Monday afternoon. He and Madden then returned and went to his training quarters at Pleasure Bay. On Tuesday he again complained of feeling iil and became worse nntil Wednes day, when his trainer found it necessary to telegraph Al Smith, Sullivan's backer, at the Gilaey House that Mitchell was very sick and requesting him to send down a good physi cian. In a subsequent note by mail Madden said Mitchell required a doctor more than a trainer. Feter Mitohell, the lawyer, was consulted and be advised that Dr. Donlan should be sent down at once. Donlan and several friends of Mitchell went down im mediately to Pleasure Bay and found Mitohell in a very precarious condition. Dr. Donlan declared that it was a case of sunstroke and said his patient was suffering from a high fever. If able Mitohell will appear next Monday night at Madison Square, but it is doubtful, as Al Smith is now looking for another man to lace Sullivan. Cieary Worated Kilrain Oeta the Best of Him in Foar Round. New Yobk, June 26. At least four thou sand people were present in Madison Square Garden to-night to witness the glove contest between Mike Cieary, of this city, and Jak, Kilrain, of Boston. After some preliminary bouts Cieary came upon the stage, aocoi panied by Jim Ryan. Kilrain followed, ac companied by Tim McCarthy. Kilrain weighed 172 pounds, and Cieary 165 pounds. Kilrain at once led off and landed lightly on the stomach. Cieary tried to counter with his right, but was short. Kilrain then got home heavily on the chest. Cieary was again short with his return. This gave Kilrain great confidence and he tattled away with both bands, making every blow tell either on the body or face. In the second round Kil rain again made play at the body and scored, then got two good ones home on Cleary's nose, which bled freely. The latter at onoe planted a right bander on Kilrain's bead, but caught two stingers in return and in trying to avoid an upper cut he slipped and fell, but jumped up and resumed the round, but was worsted. Third round Onoe more Kilrain planted his left glove on Cleary's chest, making him bneatbe bard. Cieary succeeded in getting in a light tap on Kilrain's chin, but Kilrain kept battering away and the round closed with Clear very weak. In the fourth round the Bostonian strnok out with both hands, the right landing on Cleary's ear, nearly patting him to sleep. Chest and face blowa followed without a re turn. Olearv was came, bat overmatched and could not reach his antagonist at all. Kilrain invariably used his left to stop bis man and strnok with bis right at every opportunity. deary was i getting very weak, when the time keeper j humanely ended the contest, whioh Beferee on the same terms SB those offered the oth- era. MAKYLAND. Wind and Rain Railroads Submerged, Crops Swept Off and Lumber Carried Away A Seen of Desolation. BAinxoBB, Jane 26. A rain and wind storm of great eeveiity visited portions of Maryland last night. The rain set in about 4 p. m. and continued to pour in torrents for twelve hours. Throughout Carroll county the flood was one of the most disastrous that ever visited that section. At TJnionbridge the lower floors of a number of houses were submerged. Many acres of rye and wheat were swept away. Twenty thousand feet of lumber was washed out of Lloyd Buster's yard. Five hundred feet of the track on the Western Maryland railroad was washed out between TJnionbridge and Liawood to Double Pipe Creek. All trains bound east were blockaded for several honrs to-day. At the town of Double Pipe Creek houses were sab merged to the second stories and people fled to the highlands. A number of cows were swept into the stream and drowned. Along the line of the Western Maryland railroad the devastation was great. At Barricks station about six hundred yards of the railroad track was under water. At Hagerstown the sew ers were insufficient and the water backed np into the lower portion of the town. The Western Maryland railroad is now clear and unobstructed. At Havre de Grace the storm was severe, but the damage was confined to the up rooting of trees and the flooding of cellars. A man named Owens found a dead two year old ohild in a box floatingdown the river, just north of the railroad bridge. In Harford county travel is impeded by the washing away of bridges. At Wilson's Mills an un known man was accidentally drowned in the flood. At Elkton the flood was the greatest known for twenty-five years. Great destruction to mill property and crops was caused. The loss to Cecil county by the washing away of bridges will not fall short of $30,000. The damage done along the Big and Little Elk rivers will amount to $100,000, not including the damage to crops and cattle swept away. The gas works are flooded and the city wilj soon be in darkness. Steady Rain For Twelve Honrs. Hagerstown, Jane 26. A severe rain and wind storm raged last night in this section. Bain fell in torrents for twelve hours consec utively, filling the streets with water. So great was the column that the sewers were nnable to oarry it and the water backed np into lower portions of the city. At 2 o'clock this morning an alarm was sounded to arouse the citizens to relieve George street and vi cinity. The water backed up to a depth of from six to eight feet in that locality. Fami lies were compelled to leave their houses. Hogs were taken ont of their pens and oows and horses removed from their stables to prevent them from being drowned. THE NATIONAL CAPITAL. A Call for Three Per Cents. Washington, June 26. Late this after noon Secretary Folger issued a bond call for $10,000,000 of 3 per cent, bonds to mature August 1. Forty- Eighth Conzress- First Session. Washington, Jane 26. Senate. A brief disoussion arose on a resolution offered by Mr. Willis, whioh was finally adopted, making it in order at auy time daring debate on appropriation bills to move to limit debate to five minutes. The House bill to facilitate the transporta tion of dutiable goods was passed. The consideration of the executive and judicial appropriation bill was then resumed. There was another debate on the amend ment affecting the operation of grain distil leries of less than ten bushels daily capacity. The Honse provision relating thereto was stricken oat, as was also the Senate commit tee's substitute on a point of order that it was new legislation. A proviso was added to the paragraph re lating to the reporting of debates to the ef fect that the Congressional Record shall be an accurate transcript and Senators and Representatives be allowed to make only ver bal corrections. Mr. Beck offered an amendment, at the unanimous request of the Finance commit tee, to allaw spirits entered for withdrawal for export to be set apart and remain in dis tillery warehouses for six months. He stated tbat this would be of great advantage to the trade and probably avert some failures. Mr. Ingalls raised the point tbat this was new legislation and the chair ruled the amend ment out of order. Mr. Beck moved that no part of the $2, 300,000 for salaries and expenses of agents, surveyors, gaugers or storekeepers of internal revenue be expended for the maintenance of any grain distillery which has not a mashing oapaoity of ten bushels per day; lost, 2L yeas, 27 nays. The bill was then passed as amended. When reported to the Senate it appropriated $21,647,24!). To this the Senate oommittee added over one million and something like $60,000 were added by the Senate. The Committee on Commerce reported the river and harbor tall, which was ordered printed. Mr. fenaleton oiiered a resolution, which went over, directing the Secretary of War to report a codification of the various laws re lating to the signal service bureau with such amendments as be may suggest at the next ses sion of Congress, and also to report as to the status of the chief signal omcer in the army, and the propriety of keeping the bureau under the supervision of the War depart ment. The bill to forfeit the unearned land granted to the Atlantic and Pacific railroad was made the unfinished business. At 5:40 p. m. the Senate went into execu tive session and shortly afterward adjourned. House Mr. Bingbam, of Pennsylvania, from the Committee on Postoffioes and Post Roads, reported a bill fixing at two cents per ounce or fraction thereof the rate of postage on mailable matter of the first-class. Honse calendar. Mr. Garrison, of Virginia, asked unani mous consent to take up for consideration a bill for the completion of a monument to Mary, the mother of Washington, at Fred ericksburg, Va , but Mr. Weller, of Iowa, objected. Mr. Browne, of Indiana, endeavored to have the House proceed to the consideration of the Mexican pension bill with Senate amendments; bat the Hoase determined, yeas 135, nays 83, to consider the unfinished business, being the bill to forfeit the land grant of the "backbone" railroad of Louis iana. The debate on the bill was continued until 5 o'clock, when a vote was taken on its pas sage, resulting : Yeas 77, nays 121. Mr. Lewis, of Louisiana, who had changed his vote for that purpose, moved to reconsid er the vote and adjourn. This was voted down by the opponents of the bill, when fili bustering was resorted to by the minority to prevent action on a motion made Mr. Ellis, of Louisiana, to lay the motion to reconsider on the table. A compromise was finally ef fected by which it was agreed that a vote on teconsideration should be taken at 1 o'clock to-morrow. At 5:50 p. m. the House ad journed. NEW ENGLAND. Massachusetts.

PEN NSTTLVAN 1 A. Damage By the Rain House Flooded and Railroad Washed Away The Tobacco Crop Damaged Fifty Thousand Dollar. Reading, June 26. Bain began falling here about 9 o'olock last night and by 11 o'clock it poured down in torrents. At mid night a heavy wind arose and swept over the vicinity in a southwesterly direction, uproot ing trees and prostrating fences and greatly damaging grain and fruit. In some plaoss whole fields of wheat were submersed. The damage will be heavy as the wheat was near ly ready to be harvested. The storm lasted till morning, heavy showers succeeding one another until the river was filled to overflow ing. The Schalykill canal overflowed ;at Berdsboro, breaking the embankment and letting a great volume of water into the adjoining fields, oauBing much damage to crops. The canal is damaged several thou sand dollars. Many houses in the lower part of this city were flooded. The railroads Buf fered a number of washouts which caused considerable delay to trains on the Wilmington and Northern. At Laurel station the water was high enough to put oat tne nres in tne rolling nulls. The storm was the heaviest known for years. It extended into York county where dams and bridges were swept away. It is reported that the Codorus creek has risen and swept away two hundred houses and that several persons have been drowned. The prostration of wires makes it impossible yet to learn the facts. A special from Lancaster says the storm was the worst known throughout that section for years. The damage to the tobacco crop alone will be $50,000. The railroad tracks at Columbia were washed out for over a mile, causing a stoppage of traffic FIltE RECORD. Half a Million Gone Up In Smoke. New Orleans, La., Jane 26. The entire fire department was called out to-night to fight the flames in McCraoken & Brewster's furniture store on Royal street.

Blaine's First Campaign. Washington Lstter in San Francisco Bulletin. Now that Blaine is ths nominee there is no end to the good stories that are being related of his boyhood. Congressman Pusey of Iowa, who went to school with him in Wash ington county. Pa., tells an anecdote illus trating the spirit which has not only made him the greatest man in America, but at last brought him within a step of the White House. At school the Plumed Knight was called "Nosey Blaine," in consequence of his prominent proboscis, which is still his only homely feature, and the boys, among whom he was always a leader, physically and intel lectually, were very fond of making fun of him. Blaine, however, never lost his tem per. One day ' 'Nosey" conceived the idea of being president of a literary society to which many of his schoolmates belonged, and be made a rapid canvass of the field There was but one candidate against him. who with drew at once when he heard Blaine was in the contest. Only one objection could be urged against young Blaine, be was the best debater in the society, the biggest boy and the brightest scholar. Coming to Pusey he disclosed bis ambition. "Why, Nosey," said Pusey, "of course I'll help you ; but you can't fill the place. " "Can't fill the place ?" exclaimed Blaine, astonished at Posey's lack of confidence, "why not ?" "Because you don't know anything about parliamentary law. You can't preside with out a good knowledge of points of order and things." The young candidate, sure enough, had overlooked this qualification, and was some what abashed to reflect that what Pusey said was probably true. But suddenly brighten ing up he said : "I'll fix tbat mighty quick. The election is to-morrow. I'll oommit Cushing's Manual to memory to-night." And Pusey says he did it. Before daylight next morning he knew every important part of Cashing by heart, and within a week was an authority on parliamentary law. Those who remember Blaine's remarkable mastery of parliamentary law while Speaker of the House, and the wonderful facility with which he unraveled the most intricate questions of order, will easily credit Pusey's story. His memory of principles, dates, names and faots, naturally strong, has been cultivated until it is more remarkable than hid genius for leadership and command. Underground Wires. What is Claimed for a ft ew Invention. From the Philadelphia Press. In a back room on the second floor of a building in Walnut street there are on exhi bition appliances for underground electricity which, their owners believe, will entirely rev olutionize the present systems and bring about a speedy burial of all kinds of electric wires, whether they are for telephones, tele graphing or lighting. The system exhibited is the property of the Union Eleotrio Under ground company of Chicago, and it inoludes three patents, the inventions of H. B. Cobb, of Wilmington, Del. The greatest difficul ties underground inventors have had to con tend with has been the running of eleotrio wires in the same conduits with the wires for telephone and telegraph lines. The latter currents being so weak were to a great ex tent made useless by the induction from the former. It seemed that the only way to ob viate this was the laying of conduits with separate com partments, bat Mr. Cobb, by his system, has made it possible, it is claimed, for every kind of wire to be bunched in a single tube. The wire itself is said to be cheaper than that hitherto used. The con duits, too, are not expensive. The wires are placed in a single tube like a gas or water main. The diameter of this tuba is ten inches, and it will hold 1,700 sires. It is made of a metal called kalamine, a mixture of lead and tin that resists the chemical action to which an eleotrio conduit is subjected. This conduit can be laid at a cost of $8,000 a mile. On each side of the conduit run tabes, two inches in diameter, and with a capacity of fifty wires. They are intended to hold the wires that run for short distances, and at regular intervals there are joints by wbioh connection oan be made with any house along the route. This is a devioe whioh overcomes the necessity cf tapping the main oonduit. The circular tube system is not a new one to eleotrioians. It is used almost exclusively in London, where all the wires run nnder ground, and are coated with gutta percha. Mr. Cobb, however, claims to have improved even on the London system. Instead of his wires being covered with an insulating coat from which they canDOt be withdrawn, they run through a tiny pipe, a little smaller than the familiar maocaroni tube, and this pipe is manufactured independently of the copper wire. When tnis tiny pipe has Dsen testea the copper wire is foroed into it by an ingen ious macmne, wmcn is ltseir patentea. Shoald the oopper wire at any time need re pairing the same machine withdraws it from the well fitting covering and then replaces it. This tiny tube, it is argued, is the best in sulator knhwn. It is made of vulcanized rubber, three-sixteenths of an inch being its thickness, and one-sixteenth of an inoh be ing the diameter of the opening. The rob ber is oovered with a thick electric deposition of eopper. The deposition surrounds the tube in accordance with the well known dis covery of Professor Henry, that a metallio shield, when employed between two separate ly insulated wires and in connection with the earth, prevents induction by carrying the surplus electricity into the ground. The suooess of the insulating tube has been de monstrated by Professor Barrett, the oity electrician of Chioago, who reported that the wire and tube, aftea having been in water for twelve hours, gave a resistance to insola tion of 5,000 meg ohms to ;the mile. The highest insulation secured by any previous invention was 1,000 meg-ohms, a result whioh eleotrioians imagined would never be beaten. As it is, the best resistance usually obtained is 500 meg-ohms, which is regarded as thoroughly satisfactory. By the tube system each wire can be re moved without the others with wbioh it is bunched being disturbed in any way. The eleotrio wire, whioh, on account of the great insulation, can be handled with per'eot safe ty when the strongest current of electricity is running on it, costs less than $500 a .mile, or half the usual coat, and takes up about balf the space that an eleotrio light wiro usu ally oeoapiea.
