An Unprecedented Interference with the
TVorklnir or the Electric treA Storm I
of Another Kind Illocknde In nroxdwoy
The IminciiPo operating room In tim top of
tho Western Union building was one of the
busiest places In Now York yesterday utter
noon For time llftcon hours ending at ten min
utes to 1 oclock business had been partly sus
pended In consoauenco of an electric storm
which Is said to have been the severest over
known and for several hours there had been
an almost total stoppage of telegraphic com
munication A vast volume of business had
accumulated I and the almost countless number
of clicking Instruments woro being worked as
fast as skill could operate them to clear tho
desks for tho business of another day Tho
Interior of lie room with as many workers as I
It could hold suggested 1 beehIve and tho
suggestion was lade stronger by tho humming
sound produced by tho blending of tho clicking
of tho Instruments All tho available
Instrumolts Al allblo oper
ators hal bean pressed Into service until no
instrument that could bo used was left Idle
The mturorahl storm said thelchlef opera
tor Mr I I Bogart was the severest we
have experienced Thor had been con
siderable disturbance for four or five days and
tho wires wero worked with dlfllculty Last
night tho trouble became serious and between
6 oclock this morning rind 12SO this afternoon
there was no working except with metallic
circuits that Is without depending upon tho
earth for half tho circuiton any wires east of
Chicago and north of tt Louis Wo can work
metallic circuits over nearly all the routes but
we could not HBO time multiplex I systems and
could do only a 1 xmull fraction of tho business
for which wo ordinarily havo facilities It It
sometimes possible to work circuits by the
electricity that Is In the atmosphere but Its
varying intensity prevents smooth working
und in this storm the disturbance wa > so vio
lent that wo could do but lIttle In that way
Tho trouble was over at ton minutes before 1
oclock this afternoon Tho storm almost en
tirely dUappcnrod everywhere and we are
working now without trouble
When the intorruption began to bo serious
yesterday morning instructions were mint to
every office that could be reached to take no
messages unless the senders would agree to
leave them subject to possible delay The
ocean cables wero so affected that
ocoln cblos thlt messages
could b sent only very slowly and the after
noon press reports from Kuropo were very
In tho working of both tbe
meagre bth ocean
cables mind the land wires It Is necessary that
the strength of tho electric current shall not b
variable This Is especially essential when the
duplex or multiplex systems are in use Time
duplex if used on tho ocean cables and the
multiplex over tho shorter circuits on land

How do you account for this 1 an old police
man was asked
Easy enough ho said Dont you see
how tho horses are slipping around on tho wet

to result In an amicable adjustment Tho ex
planation of this burial of the hatchet Is a now
development In trunk line railroading that will
have an Important effect on all transconti

Railroad had rocontlr grown Intense and the
former line has bon stimulated Into making a
proposed new venture The managers of the
Orand Trunk have I Is said boon trying to
got possession of tho Central Vermont

to make nny arrangement with the miter while
the longponding legal compllcutlottH existed

It Is proposed that the Grand Trunk Company
shall lease the Central Vermont at a fair
rental The Grand Trunk would then control
lines from tho West to White hirer Junction

Portland Full advantage would b gained of
time Central Vermonts connections with Boston
via tho Boston and Lowell and Concord Hail
road From Now London connection would bo
rOII with Now York by railway by one of tho
Hound lines
l Is claimed that the distance between Now
York and Chicago by the now route some 1355
IIII Is not too great to pruvolit the Grnnd
Trunk line from becoming a powerful factor In
through business I any combination Is at
tempted to advance trunk line rates Thero
seems to belittle doubt that tho scheme thus
outlined will b brought to a successful culmi
nation within a few weeks Minor arrange

A statement that the Canada Iaclllo Railroad

Motions that Artists Err DRY Fled t
follow The Exact Ulflerence Between
Ambllaf Piscine Trotting and Galloplnsr
Prof Enclwoard MuybrUlgo delivered last
evening In the Turf Club Theatre an oxcood
Incly Interesting lecture upon tho attitudes of
animals In motion Illustrating I by photo
graphs made by Instantaneous process and by
a machine called tho zoOpraxIscopo which
caused animals and human beings to appear In
actual motion upon tho screen In a etartllnnly
lifelike manner Ho explained first tho In
iconlous apparatus by which those pictures
were made a series of twentyfour cameras
each fitted with an oloctrooxposor that ox
posed the negative to tho light forono fivethou
sandth of a second when an animal In motion
before It broko a thread and made the eloctrio
The series of pictures thus produced repre
sented every movement of nny animal for the
observation of which this apparatus was em
ployod and revolutionized the old Ideas of the
motions of quadrupeds In their several gaits
especially of those of horses I bad boon a
matter of dispute whether the horse ever had
three feet on the ground at one time when
walking These pictures settled that lie
always has two foot on the ground and part of
tho time throe tho two feet being alternately
dlaKonals and laterals
Wherever a walking horse Is I supported on
two feot und tho suspended feet are inside tho
suspended feat are invariably on the same slue
where he Is supported on two extended foot
tho suspended foot Insldo are diagonals I a
horse drops tho left hind foot on the ground
the next to follow will b tho loft foro foot fol
lowed foro by the right hind and finally by tho right
Egyptian Assyrian and Roman pictures woro
shown to demonstrate that un erroneous Idea
ot this motion prevailed In the earliest attempts
at art I was perpetuated in tho famous
statue of Marcus Aurollus which has been tho
model of almost all equestrian statues to the
present day and is an conspicuous In tho
equestrian statues of Washington In Boston
and In Union Square a In any of the old
Egyptian or Assyrian pictures I Is not pos
sible for a hon t walk In the way thero de
pleted MoUsonlor had a correct Idea of a
homes walk when ho painted his trout picture
of Napoleon In 1814 but the critics ridiculed It
and pronounced It incorrect Now he has the
satisfaction of knowing that ho was right and
they woro all wrong Miss Thompson also was
correct and the critics derided hor for being so
Now tho laugh Is ou time other sldo
A dozen pictures were next shown Illustra
tive ol a horio ambling a gait In which ho Is
never altogether clear of the ground but Is sup
ported alternately by ono and two feet the
single foot being alternately a fore and a hind
foot and the two foot alternately laterals and
diagonals This was best understood when ac
tually represented by the zoopraxlscopo and
the demonstration was so perfect as to elicit
great applau from time spectators
Time racking or pacing gait was next amply
Illustrated In it the horse moves time lateral
foot simultaneously Instead of tho diagonal
foot as in the trot Then time trot was shown in
I an exhaustive series of photographs covering
every movement of a trotting horse both at a
slow and a fast trot In the latter the horse
was at ono point In his stride entirely off tho
u t s m
Ituuuu tuu titkiii Atiu nuu iiiu luw i uittj
clear and the others not qulto touching In a
fast trot time horse Invariably puts the heel
down first never the ball of time foot or toe
By an Ingenious arrangement live cameras
five pictures wore successfully made simulta
neously from different points of view for art
late use of horses In time several attitudes of
motion and several of these foreshortened ani
mals when thrown upon the screen wore
astonishingly comic however true to nature
they unquestionably were
The cantor was next shown in which during
a portion of his stride the horse has throe feet
on the ground and the fourth almost touching
it Then the gallop was Illustrated A fast
horse going rapidly Mr Muybridgo said will
bo in the air three times in u single stride he
believed but this was only his conjecture ar
guing from the illustrations he had obtained
Tho lecturer reverted attain to ancient his
tory showing the old Kgyptlan and Assyrian
models of the running horso models blindly
followed by artists ever since In which time
animal is presented poising himself on both
hind feet extended far behind with his fore
feet stretched far out ahead of him together
The North American Indians had a much more
correct Idea of the motion of u horse as was
demonstrated by their rude pictures upon a
butlulo robe that Lafayette bought when In this
country and took back with him to Paris
Time horselas ho appears In jumping was tho
subject of tIme final series of horse pictures
and alTordod some of tho most surprising and
brilliant effects of the zoopraxlscopo In re
sponse to a question of an auditor ua to
whether time horse In jumping tot his power
from his hind Itcs time lecturer replied that ho
undoubtedly did that ho raised time front part
of bin body with his foro legs und took his
spring from his hind lent In speaking of
horses jumping ho iiid that the horse of vv hlch
some of these pictures wero mado had risen
15 feet In front of a 3 ft C in hurdle cleared It
and allgutod 11 feet beyond it In alighting
from u tump time horse always lands first on his
fore foot with them DO or 4U Inches apart
Following these pictures were a long series
ot Illustrations of tho various gaits of oxen a
wild bull Newfoundland dog hound door
goat and hog In speaking the motions of
the ox Mr Mui bridge criticised iosa Uonhetir
sharply pointing out that In her picture of
three yokes off draught oxen laboring she
mlssedltho natural movements of the beasts
Tho goat runs like a liars and time deer like
the hound bounding rather than running In
ono part of time deers stride its attitude was
very near to that hlch artists have so long in
accurately made as that of time running horse
Then there worn many moro Instantaneous
photographs of Hamol walking and running
and jumping of athletes boxing turning plain
eomoriuults and twisting xomon > aultH lla
zael was very much astonished at the various
attitudes In which he had unconsciously placed
himself I whon jumping remarked the lec
turer And I should think ho would 1st l > re
sponded a voice from among the audience In
the darkness In u tone of conviction that set
overs body laughing The pictures that abtoti
lihed Haael eertamlr did show him In a won
drous series of twists
Photographs of pigeons and sea gulls In
flight beautiful pictures with the birds In
an inllnlte variety of positions upon anox
uulhlto background of clouds concluded then ex
hibition Remarking upon them the lecturer
pointed out hlids that at time moment of being
photographed hud their wings down below
their bodies and said that but two peoples had
over pictured birds in that natural position the
Egyptians and the Japanese

Freight Bates on Dressed Met
The committee ot freight agents of the rail
roads which form the Chicago eastbound freight pools
at a meeting held In Commissioner Finks ofllce yester
day decided to transfer dressed meats from the dead
freight to the lire stock pool This motion was taken
because the recent large and growing shipments of
dressed beef from Chicago have caused a couslderahlo
decrease lu the live stock shipments in consequence of
wItch roads that heretofore had a large llv stock trafllo
have suffered a diminution of that business and some
roads w hose llv o stock trafflc has been small hose trans
ported a large proportion of the dressed beef The latter
was true of the Grand Trunk road whose percentage lu
the livestock pool Is six per cent and In the provision
pool eleven per cent It was therefore opposed to this
change but Dually acceded to It with the underslandlnr
that it nitirht apply for a revision of the percentages In
