There have been several Important changes
In tho Metropolitan Polo League during the
past woek Among them is the consolidation
of the Brooklyn and Jersey City teams which
has been of much benefit to the Jvrsoymen
Noxt comes the transfer of the Newbureh Club
to Hlnc Blue Close on tho ton of this comes
the reuort that the Newark Club do not find
things Quito as rosy I they would wish In
rase another club should drop out of the
League It would Ira a benefit Instead of an in
jury to tho League for the simple reason that
tho League would then be left with four strong
ThcRR chances do not Interfere with the New
York winning and night after night they have
added victory after victory until they now
stand with llfteen victories and no defeats to
their credit Net to tho home club cornea the
IouchkPepsia team with its ten victories The
Jersey City team with its now men will make

bo forced a distance of two miloa sustained
only by Its own momentum why could It not
bo sent n distance of fifteen or twenty down a

And nt tho limit of the first section why could

despatched like a thunderbolt on Its course t
From New York to San Francisco by such inline
line the time might be reduced thcorotlcnlly
at least to only a few hours
But when ono comes to Investigate tho sub
ject of compressed air as a motor force among
experts ho finds a noticeable absence of en
thusiasm An electrical engincoer when byo
rare chance be can bo found at leisure will
talk an unscientific Interviewer dlstiucted In
about twenty minutes but n pneumatic en
gineer will himself look distracted at tho first
suggestion that air might bo male largely
available in the service of trade and trnno
partition 116 will moot tho proposition only
with objections Compressed air generates too
much moisture Fneumatlotubes would mayo
to bo burled undorgiound bulow the level of
the frost linG to overcome tho expansion nail
contraction of tho metal The necessity for
curves throws an almost Insuperable obstacle
In tho way of utilizing compressed air for any
thlngbut tho lightest service And finally tho
cost of operating pneumatic mechanism rIses
out of nil proportion to the Increase In tho
NZO of the tube and renders It Impossible to
mako It commercially successful when applied
to heavy work
These are the objections which an enthusiast
is obliged to meet when ho feels Inclined to
mount his Imagination and go curjotlng
across the continent They pull him directly
back aud compel him to exnuilna the systems
nlready In use for the pneumatic despatch of
small parcels In some of the large cities in this
country nnd in London 1nrjs Manchester
Birmingham and othor English und rouch
cities In Now York the sjstem as yet is com
paratively In Its Infancy Thero Is but one
tube laid underground along tho streets of thin
city nnd this is II trine less than three miles In
length It extends from the main office of thu
Western Union Telegraph Company to
tho Twentythird street offlce and is used only
for tho lightest service As operated is nut
preeminently successful It takes seven min
utes to send n parcel from one ofllce to Um
other nearly halt tho time that would be con
sumed wero it sent by u District messenger
over the elevated railroad It should be said I
however that parcels halo been sent In about
two minutes through this tube a rate of trans
mission onethird faster than the speed of tine
fatost express trains London has about thir
teen or fourteen miles of underground tubes
connecting Its Post Office system but of this
mileage only one short tube a utIle or coin
length was designed for heavy work Through
this large tube as many as nine tons
of matter have been sent at once but
the time consumed in tho transit Is not staled
The tube was called experimental the begin
ning and as it was constructed about twenty
years ago and has not since been extended tins
Inference is not strongly in favor ot its micceH
The system of pneumatic tubes however has
become sufficiently popular In England to lead
to Its extension in all the large cities whcro
unlike the Americans the people have not yet
learned to begin a chief part of their Inter
communication with a Hollo 1 In Paris too
the pneumatic system has been very broadly
applied but tho pneumatic engineers In New
York will I not admit that It pays cost
The chief effort in this city at present seems
to look to the supply of pneumatic tubo facili
ties to large buildings where there Is a neces
sity for frequent Intercommunication between
widely separated rooms Of this character are
the Western Union the Equitable and the
Standard Oil buildings and the great retail
dry goods houses As good an illustration of
the method of operating the mechanism may
be seen at tho towering building of tho Stand
ard Oil Company on lower Broadway ns wo
shall find Go down Into the subcellar this
building space which stems to IHJ somewhere
near the centre of the earth lower than the
lowHStcoal deposits in Pennsylvania and
you find yourself in the engine room
There you will see a small engine of
elghthorso power engaged In turning at
a wonderful rate of speed two fans enclosed in
cylinders about one foot in diameter and three
feet long Connected with these cylinders nro
two lafrro pipes say nine Inches in diameter
leading up through tho floor above and ter
minating In an Intricate system of smaller
pipes that extend to all parts of the building
Hut here It will be necessary to explain n pe
culiarity of the system In use by tho Standard
Oil Company not everywhere to be observed
One of thoso fans In the subcollar Is driving
air into the large pipe with the force of a mild
tornado and thence into the smaller pines with
which the largo pipe Is connected whllo tho
other fan Is drawing air downward through
its connecting pipes with considerable
if not with equal force and discharging
It out into the subterranean room Thlh
double action creates a pneumatic system
which Is described by the combined terms
pressure and suction and the smaller pines
are conducted through the building In pairs
ono recoiling its air from the pressure fun and
arvlngto carry packages upward whllo the
other convoys a counter current downward
and serves for return packages In practice
however itis to be presumed that either pipe
may be regarded as a return pipe This is tho
Standard Oil system in general terms itndlt
represents tho more highly perfected Byntein
in uso in New York dlnco It utilizes lie re
sources of two Bystems in ono
It will bo seen by the description that tho ro
coptnclea for parcels when despatched urn
merely wafted by a strong current of air and
not launched by tho force of compressed nlr us
In the cose of the missile sent from tho dyna
mite gun But so fur as It KOOK the system
works well Its advantages for the distribu
tion of business forms and papers and mash
parcels aro very grout and In a steamheated
building during the season when thn rooms
must be warmed the cost of operating tIre
mechanism is absolutely nothing except for
attendance The Steam which drives tho cn
Kino servos also to till the vtoamheatlng pipes
after It is discharged from Its more active
work and tho servico adds very little to tine
cost for power during even the summer season
in a building thnt must bo served by elevators
Added to tins pueu math operations are car I
ried on with despatch and certainty mud the I
mechanism should bo almost free from any
chance of becoming disordered
It will bo soon further however that this
system of pneumatic propulsion boars with
very littlo terre on the questions raised by tho
power unchained In qporatlng the dymnmlte
gun Placo one hundred loaded cannons of
the longest Improved range nine miles apart
and the row would extend from New York to
Chicago Now suppose those guns to bo
manned by gunners capable of solIng tho bull
the moment it struck the ground after it hud
been fired from tho first gun and clapping
Into tho second gun sending it lo the third
rind 110 on along tho lIne How long would It
take to Bend tho ball from here to CblclIo
Tha time will have to bo I calculated by men
trained nt estimating Initial velocities and tho
like but It would not tinge long It would take
Homewhut longer thin the limo required olin
a hundredgun salute but not much longer
than It would take the riiBte mall train ever
despatched to got comfortably away from Jer
sey City and out on tire linckensack meadows
Ioes the render fall to see tile force of tills
illustration I 1orhnps It may seem n little ex
travagant but It boiirs directly on tho possi
bilities suggested l by thin pneumatic gun The
limited space overwhlchpneumatic tubes hiuo
boon tried heretofore JIBS precluded the possi
bility of giving them a fair test Ufcourxe It
would be Impracticable to fend a loaded car
through a curved tube nt anything hike tie vo <
loclty attained by thucnrtrlifga from the pmm
matlo gun The velocity might hao ltd html
Htlong too on account of the generation of
heat through friction but It soetns clearly
possible to send It with sulTlcIont velocity to
carry It many miles through n tube curving
neither to the right nor left nnd nt a rate of
Speed that would make the fastest railway train
seem to go backward hrough country dis
niche It would not be necessary to hinei any
curves between rotations except a final upward
grade to break the speed
But tho reader must have his diagram
nothing in engineering science can be miido
comprehensible without a diagram and BO thn

that would be at once speedy and safe Is hero

necessities of n pneumntlo tube to give force to

to the mllo would probably bo found sufficient
when tho car oonld be launched by A charge ot

NEW OBLBANS Jan 8Tue Crescent City
boasts ot many persons between 80 and 100
years old The Louisiana Creoles are long
lived They grow old well and there are no
moro charming people than those ancient
croolo dames who can tell you ot the great
days of yore when French was the general
language and French manners and all the
aristocratic Influence ot the oldFronch families
prevailed The past tow months have been sad
ones for the nonagenarians and centenarians
Two months ago tho oldest Inhabitant ot the
city Mrs Smith aged 102 the granddaughter
ot Lord Sterling ot the Involution died
Among the others who died wore Gen Lewis
aged 00 who had served nobly nt tint battle of
New Orleans during the Mexican war and In
the Confederate service as n General during
tho late unpleasantness and who had been
Sheriff Mayor and had hold nearly every ofllce
In New Orleans during Its early days There
are many survivors ot the Old Guard however
and tow cities can boast of moro old citizens
Homo of theso people can remember every In
cident In the history of Now Orleans since the
beginning of tho century Tire Creoles seldom
move from their birthplaces and there are
many who have lived In the same house In this
city for seventy and eighty years
Ono ot the most vigorous and enorgetla old
gentlemen In Now Orleans Is old Commodore
William Wallace Hunter a fine specimen of
the oldtlmo Southern gentleman Although
85 years of ago ho U na vigorous ns most men
nt fifty He is n dally visitor to tine clubs
passes much of his time on the street is com
panionable in his habits and always tho centre
of a host of friends who delight to hoar the
marvellous stories of his varied nautical ca
reer ills father at the beginning of tho cen
tury was a resident ot Philadelphia nn emi
nent scientist and geologist and was sent by
President Jefferson to Louisiana to investigate
and report upon tile resources ot that newly
purchased territory Ho came to New Orleans
the year after thu purchase a baby 1j ear
old Ho ran awayfrom homo In 1H14 jitt
about the time that Jackson was fighting the
battle of New Orleans and shipped before the
mast While at BOB young Hunter visited al
most every part of the world and was long in
the China trade When 18 years of ago hlj
father secured for him the placo of midship
man in tho United States navy Tho young
middy soon won high rank During tIm
Mexican war Lieut Hunter established
u navy yard on tine Mississippi at Mem
phis so that In case ol a foreign
war which was then possible tho Unitedantes
could construct a navy without molestation
At this yard was built the list Iron manof
war the Allngbany She visited most of the
countries of Europe whore she attracted much
attention and admiration The Alleghnny still
floats although over 40 years of age but de
graded today to the position of store ship in
China Commandant Hunter held a high posi
tion In tho United States Navy in the Depart
ment of Construction when the war broke
out but ns an ardent Southerner ho
joined the Confederates This cost him his
fortune Ho served in the Confederate
navy commanding at Savannah and other
points and capturing several Federal vessels
The war over he went to New Orleans wins nn
pointed Harbor Master and although over 60
years of ago mails a most onorgotto and
efficient oflicer Through politics ho lost his
place Ho lives now on money ruined byu
benefit given by the Shakespeare Club a year
ago Commodore Hunter passed moro than
half a century on the sea lint for the war he
might have risen to tno highest place in the
United States Navy for holrankod just below
Parragut when his Slate patriotism caused
him to resign
The Lnbntut family is undoubtedly the old
est in New Orleans Thoro are four brothers
whose ages run US 82 81 and the baby 75
The father was married hero In 1775 and the
boys were born In New Orleans Dr Isadore
Labatut tho oldest was tine first nativeborn
physician in Now Orleans Ho completed his
education in France where hn vent in 18U3
He wan in Paris throughout Napoleon Bona
partes regime and was attached to the surgi
cal corps of the French army In 1814 Ho was
In Paris when Napoleon was crowned Emperor
nnd he saw tine allied sovereigns Nicholas ot
Uusslathe Emperorof Austria and KingFred
crick William III of Prussia when they en
tered the French capital He was than when
Louis XVIII was crowned When Napoleon
returned from Elba ho wont with the
forces of the Littlo Corporal to Waterloo and
was there at the battle In the surgical corps
After the fall of Napoleon he studied medicine
nt Edinburgh In Now Orleans In 1822 he bo
grin the practice of medicine which he carried
on for fortylive years Klnce his return from
Paris sixtyfive years rico ho has never been
sick Ho can run up and down stairs as nim
bly us a man of CO Mrs Labatut his wife Is
81 years old and the couple have been married
over sixty years and havo n largo family of
children and grandchildren Dr Lnbittut has
seen Louisiana governed by thu Spaniards
French and Americans Ho has never learned
to speak English
Tim next younger brother Felix Labatut
aged 82 was a merchant until lately but has
retired from business and now lives with the
Doctor Thn third brother 82 years of ago Is
connected with the Canal hank where ho has
been employed since the bank was established
The youngest brother the 75yearold baby
does not look more than GO He Is employed nt
tine United States Custom Houso is In the best
of health and has never known sickness
Mr Adotphe Duprii is a fine specimen of the
Louisiana creole Ho is 81 years old but looks
much younger There are few cases whore
the lifetimes of father and son extend over a
greater stretch of time than Mr Dupr6 and hm
i father The latter who was an attorney at
law WAS born in 1737 Mr Duprti was a banker
I In early life Fiftythree years ago he was a
member of the State Senate In 1865 he was
appointed Ilogletrnrof ito Land Office which
position ho held for years Mr Duprii has like
all Creoles fought several duels He does not
believe that cigarette smoking U unhealthy
and has been an inveterate smoker of cigar

DANBURY Jan 8Tltis town Is much ex
ercised over the strange rattling and shaking
of doors windows and blinds and oven la
some Instances the crockery on the shelves
The first to notico It was Horace Cable n florist
living on Spring street and his neighbor
Clmrloa llnu On Sunday night thor wore
awakened by the noise and they have been
dlstmbed by ttnt Intervals ever since James
II Wlldnmn a member ot the grocery firm ot
Peck li Wlldman also noticed It and had to
got up and plug his window frames in order to
pot Homo sleep Tire same phenomenon nan
been observed by resident on Kim New and
Harmony streets though in a lessor degree
It has boon suiggestnti hint the jar wo caused
by the fall of Immonno volumes of water over
thro i urn of VMiltnn 1ond n shoot of water nt
lie head of Bprlng street but Mr Cable anti
otherH reject thli thoory because they have
lived in that vicInity forthurtyflyo years and
this In the llrst tlmo those Blnuularmnnlfestn
tlonit have occurred Mr Cnblo said to TUB
SUN reporter that on Tuesday night ho got uo
mini took hold ot n window to stop Its shaking
and felt indistinct shock of electricity In his arm
and body Tho theory ot the dam Is scouted 4
also because no trembling shaking of the
ground IB felt end also because the phenom
enon H witnessed In houses nt Interval and
seems to skip comb of the dwellings
An Idea has been advanced that Danbury la
over a gas well or a cavern and that the force
of tho water going over the dam has given the
town a shaking but only In places where
the crust is thin The town Is built on a Jim
foundation or at Ica t that portion in thin viola
ity ot Whlton Iond Whatever the cause trier
Is considerable alarm und people nr anxious
to have a satisfactory solution ot tho mystery
