"WANT AND MISERY." Tlie so-called Nationals, assuming that times are hard, mwume also that legisla tion can cure all the ills that we Buffer from, awl that an unlimited issue of ir redeemable pajn-r currency is necessary to restore prosperity. At one of their conventions, held recently in Massachu setts, they solemnly resolved that "by a reckless administration of public affairs we have seen our industries crippled and our people reduced to want and misery. The St. Louis Glole-Democrat takes this declaration for the text of an article, in which it points out the palpable false hood of the premise, and the fallacy of the theories that arc based upon it. We copy the Glolic-Democrat's article in full, because it is worthy of careful perusal by all sensible, thinking people: uAny one who thinks for a moment can not fail to we that this declaration contains two palpable falsehoods. In the first place, whatever of 'want and misery the nation may have experienced during the last five years can not be charged to xlitical mismanagement any more than the yellow fever how ravag ing so many soutuern cities can le at tributed to the same cause. The bard times had deeper, farther-reaching caus es. It may lie that mistaken attempts at legislation added to the affliction, but the addition to the burden from this source was comparatively slight. In the second place, it is utterly false that our people are 'reduced to penury and want.' The tfieat mnjority of 'our people are in fair circumstances. They are not accumu lating fortunes, it is true, but thev are doing as well as their forefathers dfd, or as good as the people of any other land are doing. The conditions never seemed more fa vorable to prosperity than now. the onlv real drawbacks beiiiir the dancerou de lusions of this same Greenback Labor party. The farmers have lieen favored with an unusually Uuntiful harvest, and if we may juage tiy their attendance on the various state and countv fairs, and the unusual excellence of the specimens of vegetable and animal crops thev disnlav. have reiison to exult in the prospect of ocucr nines already at hand. Keturns from the great carrying routes of the country show that tlie tides of commerce are moving in all directions with un wonted energy. In manufactures a like renewal of activity is noted. The for eign demand for our products and manu factures was never so great as now, and our capacity to satisfy it has grown ac cordingly. Last year our exports ex ceeded our imports by $2.17,000,000, and it is safe to estimate that the excess this year will not lie less than $:V")0,000,000. We have the produce, and Europe will furnish the markets. The wholesale merchants in all our great cities report it vast improvement in domestic trade. There is such a revival as has not lieen exx:rienced for many years. Collec tions are liecoining easier every day, the reiM'al of the bankrupt law having ex erted a stimulating influence on the busi ness of honest dealers, besides making wholesale merchants more careful in the extension of credits. Turning to the tailoring classes, we can find no justification for the reckless statements made by the liutlers, Kear nops and Hills of the new party. Men who want work can find something to do, and, as a matter of fact, very few of them are idle. It is true that wages have shrunk from the old war figures, but this is not very remarkable. The cost of all the necessaries of lite has shrunk still more. The demagogues prate loud' about the shrinkage tVom $2 to $1.25 per day in the workingman's wages, but say nothing about the falling otl in the cost of bread and meat. At one time during the war pork sold for $0 per barrel; now it costs $8.75. Flour that cost $12 a barrel then can now be bought for $5.50. Clothing lias shrunk even more in price than breadstuifs. Rents and taxes are high, it is true, but these items form but a small percentage of the cost of living of the people to whom the dem agogues apcal. There' has lieen much mi tiering among some classes of arti sans, notably workers in iron and steel, because of the collapse of industries into which these articles enter largely. But the mechanics are adapting themselves 1o their changed conditions. Many of thein have wisely turned to agricultural pursuits, anil others have found tempo rary occupation until an increased de mand for their manufactures will insure them profitable employment once more. liy judicious financial management we me rapidly refunding our liondcd bebt, at greatly reduced rates of interest. In this way, and through the practice of economy in the administration of affairs, the burden of taxation has been greatly lessened. Our currency, from lieing a constantly shifting measure of values, has growu as stable as coin, and, as our telegraphic reports this morning show, practically equal to It in value. .If an easy borrowing rate is a standard of judgment, then the conditions are favor able to those who desire to liorrow on sufficient securities, for the rate of inter est was never lower than now. Those who have no collaterals never can bor row, or at least they never should. These are the conditions of which the Nation als complain. They would overturn and destroy them all in order to lift the peo ple out of 'want and misery,' which only exist in their own fevered imaginations. They say 'we must apply the legislative cure; we must abolish hard times by act of congress." The fact is that the hard est times are over, and that no amount or kind of legislatiou will help return ing prosperity half as much as the sup pression of these false teachers. Quack ery never cures. Congress cannot work miracles. If the statesmen will keep their hands off the legislative machine for a little longer, the country will get along nicely. A triumph for the Na tionals and. the embodiment of their views in legislation would be a greater calamity to all our best interests than the late civil war." Lieut. Gov. Humphrey. The Canton (Ohio) Daily Repository of the 10th iust., says of the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor of Kan sas : "We are pleased to note the success of another Htark county lioy, in the person of Lyman U. Humphrey, the present lieutenant governor of Kansas. Mr. Humphrey was born and raised in Marlboro township, this county, and was going to school In M ass i lion when the war broke out. He enlisted when on ly seventeen years of age, and served nearly four years in the 7(Jth regiment, O. V. I., during which time he was wounded, and was promoted to the com mand of his company. After the war he studied law ia Massillon and at the University of Michigan, and then went west to grow up with the country. He located at Independence, ' Kansas, when he soon" became successful in his prac tice, and his merit was evinced by elec tion to the legislature, and then to the second position of honor and trust in the f ift of the people of his adopted state. uring tlie war Mr. II. was an occasional correspondent of the Stark County Re publican, and there displayed that abili ty as a writer and scholar which has characterized . his after life. He has identified himself with the Republican party, and though still a young man, has achieved political honors that sel dom fall to the lot of older and more ex perienced men. His re-election to tlie office of lieuten ant governor is certain, and in being thus honored by the people of Kansas, ho is at the same time an honor to Stark county, and to Ohio, and his industrious and successful career should be an ex ample and an incentive to our youth."

WHERE ARE THE RICH KENT .There has been a exeat deal of com plaint during Hie last lew years that the wealth of the country was beinrr absorb ed by a few thousand men, who were be coming fabulously wealthy, while the masses of the people were as steadily be coming impoverished. The papers have been crediting Vanderbilt, Gould, Scott, Senator Jones, and some others, with being worth $20,000,000 to 100.000.000 eacli. and as having such immmense incomes that thev were entirely at a loss how to use their money. This grumbling ought now to stop. There can't be any rich men in the country, and the wealth of the gentlemen in question must have lieen entirely overestimated. AVe don't believe there is a rich man in the west worth $100,000 in available cash, and the stories of this and that one possessing enormous wealth are absurd exaggera tions. We come to this conclusion bv reading the daily telegraphic reports of subscriptions to the yellow fever relief I una- me bootblacks ana newsboys have all given five cents each, the ser vant girls and hotel waiters 25 to 50 cents each, the seamstresses and clerks 50 cents each, the day laborers a dollar each, the mechanics one to two dollars each, the storekeepers, doctors, lawyers, editors, etc one to five dollars each, tlie bank cashiers and average bondholders five to fifty dollars each, and here and there a locally rich man may have shell. ed out as much as one hundred dollars. Everybody who has a cent to spare for the welfare of humanity has contributed something to aid the yellow fever suffer ers. Tlie very oorest have sent up at least a nickel as an earnest of their good desires, and as the ioor are in a very large majority "many nickels make a muckle," and Ln the aggregate a very large sum of money is flowing toward the scenes of anguish along the Missis sippi river. And more than money, scores of noble men and women have voluntarily gone to face death on his own chosen ground, out of pity for suf- lering men and women and children of whom they never heard before. The depths of christian civilization have been touched with sympathy, and the nation shudders every day as it reads the pathetic appeals for help for the neipiess in their great agony. Amid this grand national effort to afford relief, among all the contrbution spared by the laboring masses from their scanty earnings, who learns of the mil lionaires What has become of the mil lionaires, the money kings, the magnates who can command a million of riniiaro at a word, whose wealth furnishes them every conceivable luxury and indul gence, and who could spare millions of dollars and not sacrifice a venience or luxury that human ingenui ty can provide ? Where are the $100,000 contributions, the $500,000 gifts, the $1,000,000 monuments to a country's gratitude? Where are the rich men where is any evidence now that they have a dollar more than thev absolutelv need to keep themselves and families from starvation T The yellow fever fund fails entirely to show that any man in this country is worth anything like a million dollars. The income tax collec tor would evidently have nothing to do if he were appointed. Such a being as an American citizen who has a thousand dollars to give in any emergency what ever, evidently don't exist. His name and post office address certainly cannot be found in the yellow fever fund list. No, all those tales about there being rich men in this country, about men who can command millions of dollars, are fables. The money is in the pock ets of the boot blacks and working peo ple generally, and right royally are they shelling it out, each man and woman sacrificing of their needs, incurring some additional privation, for the sake of the humanity that wealth has not pressed out of their hearts. But the rich man, the man we hear about, the wonderful man who can buy gold mines, and rail roads, and marble palaces and diamonds, who travels in regal magnificence, and whose sneeze is heralded as an ex pression of financial import, they well, they have not heard of the yellow fever yet, and will not- be at home until after frost comes and the plague is past, and then they will appear again to dazzle an admiring public with the lordly magnif icence that millionaires alone are enti tled to shower around their pathway. Kansas. Tlie wonderful growth "of Kansas is attracting tlie attention of the whole country, and the newspapers declare there "never was the like of it." The New York Times, of the 13th inst, has the following: "Not one of the Western States is growing as Kansas is. A census taken early ln 1855 showed a population of but 8,601; in 1860 of 107,306; and in 1865, of only 140.170.' Since then it has had a growth more rapid than any state of the union. Thus, ia 1870, its popula tion was 864,382 ; the rate of increase from 1800 to 1870, although largely made from 1865 to 1870, was three times the rate of increase of Oregon, Iowa or Wisconsin ; five times that of California, Missouri or Illinois, and seven times that of Florida or Texas. The census of 1875 put the population of Kansas at 533,372, and at present it is universally estimated to be at least 650,000. - The increase has been nearly 30,000 a year since the first census was taken in 1855. The state is so extremely fertile, and so admirably adapted for fanning and grazing that it will be strange if it be not before long one of the most prosper ous states beyond the Mississippi. Judge Brown, the workingmen's can didate for the state senate in one of the West Virginia counties, is the largest land-owner in the state, with one excep tion, and is accused of hiring men to work for him at Jwenty-flve cents a day and forgetting to pay them. That is the kind of man who usually does the loud est howling about the wrongs of the workingman, and sets himself up as a champion of labor.

It is also rumor ed that they massacred other men who were out after stray stock, as at the time the messenger left for Dodge City no trace of them could lie found. Tlie de tails however, are not known. THE NOKTHEBX CHEVESSES. A letter from Sidney, Nebraska, siys that the Cheyenne camp has been moved to a point one mile east of town and every effort is made to preven intercourse with the prisoners. They are not in formed concerning the outbreak of the southern Cheyennes. The meagre news received from the south indicates that the hostiles have spread over a wide space, traveling in small parties. If the Cheyennes at Sidney have the least opportunity they will break away and effect a junction with the hostiles. They ars all more or less armed and supplied with an abundance of ammunition. They are dissatisfied and irritable. Little Chief, the principal chief of the band now there, said Monday that the Indi ans are leaving a country "heap good, where game is plenty and where our women and children will not starve, and going to a country where fever and fam ine soon kill them all. THE GOVERNMENT is heap bad and the Indian will not al ways submit." The belief is strong there that the troops will not be able to inter cept the hostiles, but they can easily pre vent the prisoners joining them. The next few days will- be full of events. In terpreter Rowland, who married and lived among them for thirty years, snya the Cheyennes will fight to death, and regards the present movements as the commencement of a big Indian war. uoi. j.uornuerg'8 command there nu ro llers five companies.

Giblxin, and the other to the adjutant general of the United States amiy, relating to the Ban nock prisoners. In his dispatch to Gen. Gibbon he said : "I have your letter of September lo, and in a tew days will let you know what to do with the captured Bannocks. I am delighted with the prompt manner in which Col. Miles did his work, and I wish to tell him so. The party that escaped and went in the direction of Washekie's Shoshones' camp were an captured by Lieut. .Bishop, ot the Fifth cavalry, so that I think all the Bannocks who came over on our territo ry from the Pacific side have been killed or captured." In his telegarm to the ad jutant general at Washington, Gen. Sheridan said : "it is now quite certain that all the Bannocks that came over in to my division from Howard's depart ment have been killed or captured. Those escaping from Col. Miles' engage ment have lieen captured by Lieut. Bish op of the 5th cavalry. So the next ques tion is, what shall lie done with the pris oners t -.ins ougui 10 oe determined on without delay. I recommend that they be sent down to the Nez Perces, and that any captured ponies and guns we may have in our possession be sold and young uaiue lor me inuians pe purcnaseu with the proceeds." MILES' OFFICIAL REFOBT. Gen. Miles has been heard from. His official account of the recent fight in the Yellowstone park was received at Sheri dan's headquarters day before yesterday. It is as follows : "Headquarters; District of the Yellowstone, Camp at Heart Moun tain. Montana, September 4. To Ruggles, assistant adjutant general, St. Paul: I have to report that with a detainment of the 5th infantry and a small band of Crow allies, I surprised a small camp of hostile. Bannocks on Clark's Fork, west of Heart mountain, at daylight to-day. "As near aa I can ascertain, there were eleven Indians killed, thirty-one cap tured ; also two hundred head of horses, mules and ponies captured. From the prisoners I learn that a few lodges have gone to Washekie's camp of Shoshones. "Capt. Bennett, of the 5th infantry, Crow interpreter Roque Barcume, and one Crow warror, were killed. Private McAfee, company G, 5th infantry, was wounded. The Bannocks endeavored to excite the Crows to hostility, but I have turned the latter against them. Col. Buell's command will be up to-morrow. I will leave it in this vicinity for a short time. "Nelson A. Miles." COMING DOWN TO MEET THE SOUTHERN CHEYENNES. A dispatch from Cheyenne dated day before yesterday, sayst Early this morn ing, some stock-men discovered a large party of Indians about to cross the rail road near Antelope station, eighty-five miles east of here. It was estimated ' by good judges that there was at least three hundred m the party. Runners and tel egrams were sent at once to the ranches and towns along the South Platte river, for every one to gather up their horses and drive to places of safety. It is thought .that .this party is coming to meet the Cheyennes who are coming north, and after a junction is formed they will sweep the country of all stock ana make for northern Wyoming again. As a precaution against having trains ditched, the officers of the Union Pacific road have ordered all express trains to run very slowly through the infested district, Green River to Laramie. This brings trains In two hours behind time. The company have patrols near all sus pected points, to prevent surprise and robbery if possible. Heroes of the Plague. It is quite impossible to keep track of all the heroic sacrifices that are made in the charnel houses of the plague now devastating the South. The sad fate of one little party which went from St. Louis to Memphis about three weeks ago, deserves, however more mention than has been made in ' the brief tele graph lo announcements from that city. Drs. McKim and Nugent, with five Sis ters of Charity, left this city in perfect health to offer their services to the suf fering In Memphis, and within the brief time named all but two of this noble little band have been stricken by the angel of death. The death of Dr. Mc Kim has already been referred to and that of Dr. Nugent was announced in Saturday's paper. Three of the Sisters have died meanwhile, so that only two rtniain. St. .Louis Republican. The Hartford Courant indulges in some . reminiscences of a yellow fever visitation in New England in the last century. It says the fever waa epidemic for the first time in New Haven in the summer and fall of so that the ses sion of the general assembly, which should regularly have been held in that city, was holden in Middletown. The fever prevailed also in New York and Philadelphia in the same year, and in terfered with the sale of the tickets of the lottery granted to build the Hartford state house to such an extent that noth ing waa realized thereby. In consider ation of the disuess in New Haven, the governor and council issued a brief ask ing for contributions in aid of the suffer ers there. EMPOHIA, KANSAS, FRIDAY,' SEPTEMBER 27, 1878. The Planet Vulcan. When Professor Swift, of this city, re discovered the lost Vulcan, while near Denver, July 29, the vagrant planet was only about eight miles distant from the star Theta Canci. The two were in such close proximity, in fact, that had they both been of the same brilliancy it would have been almost impossible for the naked eye to separate them. Since the nnding ol V ulcan, which has created such a sensation in the scientific world, Professor Swift has very naturally felt a fatherly interest in the planet, which is his by the right of discovery. At three turned his telesco)e in the direction of 1 heta Canci, which was readily found in the place it should lie. - But it was alone. Had its 'neighbor of July 29 been a star, and not a planet, the finding of the one would have also shown the other. Being a planet, it had disappear ed, being engaged in its regular employ ment oi taking a turn rouna the sun This, said Professor Swift to a represen tative of the Evening Express this morn. ing, is proof positive that it was Vulcan which he found July 29. But, he added, 1 am no more convinced than before 1 was certain of it at first." Rochester Express. .',-. Some Interesting Statistics. In 1867 the interest on the public debt amounted to $143,781,591 annually. For the year l77 it amounted to $97,124,511 a decrease of $46,657,080 in ten years. It will be much less for the current year, as the refunding of the debt into bonds bearing a lower rate ot interest is steadi ly and rapidly progressing. The cost of sustaining the naw has been reduced nearly to the standard of itiu. I he appropriations for the navy that year aggregated $11,514,964 for the year 1878 they aggregated $13,541, 024. In I860 we had 101 ships in our ueei; now we nave na. In 1860 the pension list of the country required an annual appropriation of f.i,iu,yo ior 1877 the appropriations for pensions, arising from the Demo cratic rebellion, aggregated $27,936,752. The appropriations for the army in 1865 were $1,031,323,360; for 1868 they aggregated $123,246,648; and in 1867 they aggregated $37,082,735. The appropriations for the Indian service in 1800 aggregated $2,940,191; for 1875, when they were highest. 8- 384,656; and for 1877 they aggregated $4,829,865. The miscellaneous expenditures of the government including the civil service, congress, the courts, consular service, river and harbor improvements, the post office system, etc., aggregated $27,976, 434 in 1860; $85,141,593 in 1874; and $58,926,582 in 1877. - Railroad Land Questions. Mesers. Haskell, Ingalls and others addressed a meeting of settlers at Hum boldt last week, and at tlie close the fol lowing resolutions were passed : Whereas, A large tract of land ly ing in Southern Kansas, has been, as we lielieve, improvidently patented to the Leavenworth, Lawrence & Galveston, and the Missouri, Kansas and Texas railroad companies, and Whereas, Said lands are largely oc cupied by actual settlers, many of whom have made extensive and valuable im provements thereon, and WnEREAS, A controversy has arisen between the settlers and railroad com panies concerning said lands, the effect of which is to cast doubt upon the ques tion of title to said lands tlie said rail road companies insisting thafthcir ti tles are r perfect,- while the settlers are perfectly clear that if a fair and impar tial judicial examination into the same was made, that the claims of the said railroads would be declared without a substantial legal basis, and - WHEREAS, In the opinion of said set tlers a thorough judicial investigation cannot be had, save by a suit brought in the name of the United States, in the Federal Courts against said railroad companies. Therefore the said settlers, in mass meeting assembled, do Resolve, That our senators and rep resentatives in congress be and they are hereby instructed to use all efforts in their power to procure an order from the proper authorities at Washington, directing the United States District At torney for the District of Kansas, to in stitute legal proceedings to settle the question of the validity of the claims set up by said railroads to said lands, and to associate with him such counsel as the settlers may employ to aid him in the conduct of said proceedings. Some Qne8tions Answered. The fiat-money people are making so many and so extravagant statements in their arguments before the people that we receive daily numerous letters asking for information on various points. Thus a correspondent at Hinchlev; 111., repre sents that Mr. Glover, chairman of the Greenback state committee, in a speech delivered at that place, devoted some time to an explanation of the profits made by national banks from the de struction of the bank notes by fire and other agencies. Of course, Mr. Glover would not have made this statement un-' less he believed it, but that does not ex cuse his ignorance. All the profit from the destruction of bank notes accrues to the government. The government issues the notes, and the banks furnish the means of redeeming them. The banks pay taxes on their circulation and on their deposits. Greenbacks are not taxa ble. To substitute greenbacks for na tional bank notes will be to substitute $330,000,000 of untaxable currency for a like sum taxed. We have not yet heard the proposition to tax the greenbacks. These flat-money people are also deal ing out strange versions of fact concern ing the paper money of England and France. In answer to more than twenty inquiries as. to the facts pertaining to the paper money of France, we repeat: (1) All the paper money in France is is sued by the National Bank of Franae, and not by ,jhe Government. (2) The amount outstanding is about $450,000, 000. (3) It is redeemable on demand in coin, at the bank or its branches. (4) It is not a legal tender for public or pri vate debts to any amount whatever. A correspondent at Racine asks if it is true, as stated by the fiat-money orators, that "the notes., oi, the Bank of England are based on the wealth of the nation," and are money of themselves, requiring no redemption, and are in fact never re deemed, the gold on deposit in the bank being held there merely for convenience, and never for the . purpose of redeeming the notes. The truth is that the Bank of England is allowed to issue notes np to a certain amount on a deposit of gov ernment, securities; for all notes above that limit the bank must have a Cellar of gold for every dollar of paper out standing. The notes are redeemable on demand in gold. A scarcity of gold in England necessitates a contraction of the bank notes, and any serious demand on the bank for gold compels of necessity a retirement of an equal amount of bank notes. The government of Great Brit ain does not issoe paper money, and the notes issued by the Bank of England are secured upon . nearly the same plan as are notes in this country. The Bank of England has a permanent but limited deposit of national securities against which it is authorized to issue bank notes. In addition it is authorized to issue as many bank notes as it has gold on deposit ia its vaults. In this way the bill-holder is protected at all times against loss, and the bank note is always equal to coin. The national bank notes in this country are, in like manner, protected by a deposit of national - bonds or actual money with the treasury for the redemp tion of the notes. After January next these bank notes will be redeemable on demand in coin or its equivalent.- Un der this system there has never been a bolder of a national bank bill who has suffered a loss from the failure of a na tional bank. When specie payment shall be resumed, our national bank notes will be as as amply protected against loss by failures aa are the notes of the Bank of England. Chicago Tribune. THE TEtEJtACHOX. An Klertrie ' Tm-KJn that Will Transmit Powrr by Wbi-Th 'oreef Niagara to ie imiriDuiu over tue tiuteu states. From the New York San. I To use the vast power generated by numberless rivers and tide-ways, by transmitting it from regions where not iucu iaj yvmia wuere it. is invaluable, has long puzzled scientists. . In places away from the seaboard and the great water cources, especially, power has heretofore been obtained only, by the erection of expensive machinery, the constant generation of steam, and the consequent consumption of vast quan tities of coal brought from a distance. While visiting the mining regions of tlie Merra Xsevaxla and Rocky mountains m his late western tour. Prof. Edison was struck with the difficulty there had by miners in drilling and boring, though in many cases in the vicinity of rapidly flowing mountain streams. Except in "placer" mining, where the ore is wash ed out of the bed or banks of a river, or wuere expensive steam arms are used, the work of mining is laborious. While watching miners drilling by hand, a means of facilitating this work evolved itself from Edison's fertile brain. Turn ing to his intimate mend. Prof. Barker, of the University of Pennsylvania, he exclaimed, abstractedly, "Why cannot the power of yonder river (pointing to the Platte river on the plain a thousand ieet below) be transmitted to these men by electricity?" This thought seemed not to go from Edison's head, and all the way across the plains on their jour- m j uuiuc uk uiu n ia irienu, isaray, as he calls him, discussed various problems for the transmission of power. Before starting for the west. Professor Barker had visited Ansonia, Conn., where his friend Mr. William Wallace, is engaged in tlie manufacture of electri cal machines. Mr. Wallace has profound scientific research, and besides the me chanical part of his business, he devotes himself enthusiastically to that part - of puysics mat comprehends electricity, magnetism, and the polarization of light. He showed Prof. Barker an instrument to which he had devoted the best vears of his life, but which was yet in a crude condition. He was still experimenting with it, but he believed he would so per fect it as to transmit power from one point to another by means of electricity. When the Edison party had arrived in New York, Prof. Barker bethought him self of the instrument previously shown him by his friend, and which at the time he had only curiously examined. He invited Prof. Edison to visit Ansonia, an invitation that was at once "accepted. The party consisted of Prof. Edison and Barker, Prof. Chandler, of the board of health, and Mr. Edison's assistant, Mr. tsacneiier. It was an agreeable surprise to the party to find that Mr. Wallace had per fected his machine. Being exceedingly modest and caring not for notoriety, he had shown the instrument to few, and these only persons whose, lack of scien tific knowledge prevented them from comprehending its usefulness. Mr. Wal lace calls it a telemachon. and he smiled with pride as he pointed to a numberof tnese machines, each one an improve ment upon its predecessor, and each having required years to design and nearly $1,000 to construct. Mr. Edison was enraptured. He fair ly gloated over it. Then power was ap plied to the telemachon, and eight elec tric lights were kept ablaze at one time, each being equal to four thousand can dles, the subdivision of electric lights oemg unknown to science. This filled up Mr. Edison's cup of loy. He ran from the instruments to the lights, and from the lights back to the instrument He sprawled over , the table with the simplicity of a child, and made all ktnas of calculations. He calculated the pow er of the instrument and of the lights, tiie protmote loss ot .power in transmis sion, the amount of coal the instrument would save in a day, a week, a month, a year, and the result of such saving on manulactunng. The cool, impassive professor Chand ler also went about, note-book in hand, informing himselt upon the minutest de tails. That a man like Mr. Wallace, after studj'ing privately upon the subject for years, should calmly, deliberately and without ostentation, bring out before them an instrument calculated to revo lutionize the whole manufacturing busi ness, filled the party with amazement. . By means of it power may be obtain ed from places where river power or ti dal power is abundant, or may be gener ated where fall is cheap, as at tlie coal mines, and by means of an ordinary ca ble can be transmitted hundreds of miles. The cable may be tapped at any point and power used therefrom. Mr. Edison believes he can so assist Mr. Wallace in perfecting the telema chon that power can be transmitted from one point to another as though it were a telegraphic message. Already by this instrument Mr. Wallace is enabled to transmit the power of the Naugatuck river a quarter of a mile. The power of this stream is great, enough to drive the ponderous machinery vof the Wallace factory, where 300 men are employed. A series of experiments with the instru ment has shown that in the transmission of this enormous power by electricity, only 20 per cent, is lost. xn lULt instrument uie electricity is produced by the Wallace dynam-electric machine, no battery being used. Four large electro-magnets are placed with their poles facing each -other. On the axis parallel with and situated between them is a disc of iron carrying upon its opposite faces a row of 'electro-magnets, thirty in number on each lace, whose poles, facing outward, revolve as close as possible, to the poles of the large magnets, called the field of force. On the same axis, but outside of these discs, strips of copper are placed equal in num ber to the magnets on the discs, each strip.of copper being connected to one end of the wire of the magnet. The oth er end of the wire goes to the next strip. Each strip,: therefore, is connected to the last ends of the coils and to the first end of that immediately following it. When the disc, with its magnets, is re volved by any power, the weak magnet ism remaining in the iron itself gener ates a current of electricity in the wire surrounding these magnets. In virtue of the principle discovered by Farraday, that whenever, a conducting wire is moved in the vicinity of a magnet, ' a current of electricity is caused to circu late in that wire, the feeble current thus generated flows around the. feeble mar- nets of the field of force, increasing their magnetism. 1 his increased magnetism reaches upon the revolving magnets, in creases the electric current. : and so. alternately, until the maximum is gen erated in the wires of the revolving mag nets. This current bears for each a per fectly definite ratio to the Dower con. sumed, and they are capable of convert ihg 80 per eent.- of the power applied in to electricity. The electric current gen erated is carried by two copper wires to a second machine, the. telemachon. This effects the reverse operation that is to say, the reconversion of the electricity into' mechanical power. The telemachon consists of a field of force and a revolv ing armature. This field of force con sists of twelve electro-magnets in two sets of six each, the poles of each set facing each other and connected togeth er by. heavy bands or bridges. Ln the space inclosed by these magnets, and parallel with them, is the armature axis supporting an armature consisting of a ringjof iron wire serving as a core around which is wound an ' insulated copper wire in two series of fifty coils. The ends of these wires come out alternately to the right and left of the armature, and are connected with two break pieces up on their axial Six springs, or brushes of copper wire, press upon these break pieces, each pair of brushes facing each other, and opposite a pair of magnets in the field of force. The electric current entering the machine presses round the field of force and magnetizes the mag nets. At the same time it passes through the armature magnetizing that, so that the poles of the armature nearest to the poles of the lieia magnets are of the op posite name. In conseauence of thin the field of force . magnets attract the poles of the armature and cause, the armature to move. . But the motion in its new nOAition hHnim nthpr rwii-tinna of the break pieces in contact with the spring and causes a redistribution of the magnetism. Again, attraction takes place as before, and again the direction of.the current is changed by the break pieces, ine magnetic enect being con tinuoilR. the rotation ia rainHnustua in Creasing- constantly in sneeri until 'tha friction and the magnetic power balance eacu omer. In Sunday's experiment the hodome ter showed that the machine mnlp thm thousand revolutions a minute. the electricity from the wonderful tel emachon may lie applied to illumination.

A young man who used to be engaged in business in the oil country, during i j u.. , 0, mw.i c. 1 L V 1 e i L writes the following: While roaming luiuugu iuc un country, our interest was excited by having certain localities pointed out to us as the place where once stood a small city. Perhaps no yen i ui iuv uu region snows this as much as that sitnutml notwoon nn and Titusville, and no place as much as i cuuicuiu venter, we stand amazed and almost doubt the truth of our in formant when vp nro trii tlia k;, ; the Petroleum Center which we saw ten years ago. At that time, as the name implies, 11 was me center of the land of grease. Surrounded as it was by the best oil producing country, it could not be otherwise. Vast numbers of houses, stores, machine shops, etc., were erected in a short time, and in 1868 it was a city of 3,000 or 4,000 inhabitants. Everybody in oildom knew of Petroleum Center. The citv had lifint-c i J lUIJIVUITt IIVWjIOj largo business houses, and could boast " . i . . C jy i . uncc ur mur tuie, ;jyiurciies. The whole country around tli3 place was a city. At night it was almost impossible to get through the great crowds of peo ple collected for pleasure. Wliat a change. Nothing can be compared to it except the destruction of war. In stead of fine residences, the ground is now used for potato patches ; a road marks the place where the principal street was; the churches yet stand, but nobody remains to attend them. Per hans there ota inn. inhoKttanta ;n X .ww .... n.xi 13 111 UtC town now. North of Petroleum Center we were shown the place where in '66 and '67 was the famous Benninghoff Run. There remains not. a ui irn nf umr thing ever having been there. As many will namomha. ,1 . nnA . 1. . t . oil territories in the country at that time. On the northern part of this farm was a small town by the name of Dub lin. It had 200 inhabitants and was the terminus of the Rennino-hnff Dim rail road. Not a single house remains. In fact, one would think, not knowing any better, that it had never been cleared. Many towns like this have gone the same way. , But perhaps the next in im- iwiuuiuc jriuiuitj, luiKe jreiroieum Center it. Ih nPArlv nrnna WKon r 12 'J fjvuv. tV MlsU V. U. Duncan, who died in Glasgow some years ago made his will he left to a i;uun;u nuiuie, $zo,uuu. uuring the legislation whieh follnTroH was sent to find the church.

But it uou uupieareu long oeiore me com mittee went there. On accout of this, more than anything else, Mr. D. was thought to have been crazy when he made his will. Sec'y Sherman on the Maine Election. Washington, Sept. 10. Sec'v Sher man said to-day that the Maine election demonstrates several points, the most im portant of which is that the Greenback party will absorb the Democratic party, and that this will sooner or later natur ally tend to a general reorganization of parties on the currency question. The Republican party, he maintained, repre sents the true spirit of the business in terests of the country. With that branch of the Democratic party which does not sympathize with the inflationists, and which is in favor of honest money and a strict adherence to the pledges of the Government, the Republicans will form eventually the dominant political organ ization. The Secretary said' that the nrevalent ..roooif idea that the issue of two hundred mil lions more of greenbacks will relieve the industrial interests and revive trade is based upon a very erroneous theory. Such a step would tend to inflate values, while the purchasing power of the green back would hot be proportionately enhanced.- Moreover it would renew the fluctuations of gold and the variations between gold and currency which have been so ruinous to business since the close of the rebellion. He could not see, even if Congress were to authorize an additional issue of greenbacks, how it. would be of any practical benefit to those who are now clamoring for more money, unless the money were to be distributed gratuitously or disbursed in the ordina ry transactions of the Government. The only effect, in the opinion of the Secre tary, would be reactionary, and the un doing by legislation of what is now on the verge of accomplishment the res toration of fixed values to the circulat ing medium of the country. - All the legislation necessary to perfect tlie ob jects of the resumption act ia now on the statute books, and any effort to reverse it will be disastrous to the country. The Secretary added that if he had not been so much .embarrassed by conflicting views, the end would have been reached before this. In the general results the Secretary said it might not be surpris ing if the Greenback party held the bal ance of power in several of the States and in Congress soon. - There is some style about the Green. backers of Texas. Their platform de mands the issue of two billions of dol lars in paper money! One naturally wonders that while they were at it they didnt demand the traditional "forty acres and a male." , . , "Is there an opening here for an intel lectual writer?" asked a seedy, red-nosed individual of an editor. "Yes, my friend," said the man of quills, "a con siderate carpenter, ioreseeing your visit, left aa opening for you ; turn the knob to the right." A Specimen Financier. A friend recently related to us a little incident which he met with, and which edified him to a high degree. He had been 1 intensely disgusted with Elder Mitchell's harangue at the "Harvest Home," and a few days afterwards, was on his way toward a neighboring city, when he came up with one of the most ZealoUS leaders of the f3muen1.alr narf. of this county, driving several voun ,ur, m a uw vrrjr . mmiy conuiuon.
