ELECTRIC STREFT CARS. Great Advantages Claimed for Them Over Other tsyatems. MoNTnEii, Sept. 10. An Interesting paper was presented at to-day's session ot the Na tional Electrical Convention by Capt GrlfHn ot Boston. Tho subject was. " Three Years' Development ot Electric Hallways " In Introducing his sub ject Capt Griffin said that the first recorded description of an electric car was to be found in Nahum 11 , 4. The eliarloii ihnll rata In the itreeu. tiny ihtll Juitls one aitimt another In trie broad vayi. they tball item like torcnea. tlier shall run like the Ilghtnlngi. Notwithstanding this, he said. It Was not until the year 1883 that tho electric railway became a practical commercial success. The first electric car run on the street rail way track was In Cleveland. Ohio. Jn 18SS, yet for years previous, at expositions held In dif ferent American and European cities, exhi bitions had been given of electrlo elevated railways. After four years' development of this system there were in operation JS1 roads of 2b'll rnilB wlth4.'13 motot cirp. The Legislature or Massachusetts at a recent session had taken Into consideration ttie ldou of the abrogation of the rights vested in street rnllwny companies. He held that street railway directors were iiuasl protection or tbe public, aud that It was their duty to see tbat the best facilities were ottered to tbe public, and that the greatest good to tho greatest number should bo achieved. The critic, as a rule, argued from Mb ovvu standpoint. Instead of considering the wants of the masse-. The laborer must be near his work and he must be near it lu time and in money. He tben snowed th differ ence in the cost for workingmen by travelling by horse nnd olectrle cars, greatly to tbe udvantag of the lat ter, and. as to the cost ot running either road he asserted that electric roads could be run mucb cheaper thau steam un derground, or horse cars He also argued that the health nnd morality ot the city would be greatly benefited by tho use ot olectric street cars. As to the dan cor Imagined by many to exist In the latter si stem he held that tbe fearof ilectrlc currents was born of Ignorance, and then uuoted from statistics to show tbat where elec tric motors bad been used fower accidents had occurred to the publio than upon horse or stam railways. To-day In bL Paul and Minneapolis there Is not a single streetcar run by borses. wbile the development or tbo last three years shows electric roads to be a llnnnclal success. In conclusion be said that th electric road was n paying Investment, and often the sal vation of the horse roud, which otherwise would be in the hands of a receiver. Capt. Grlflla was warmly congratulated on bis paper. ASOTItER DISGUSTED FAIR OXK Everything In Ilr Trunk Was lier Owe, Kald Mlas Molly Jones. There was another surprised and angry young womnn fluttering around ths Custom House yestorday because about $5,000 worth of dresses made In Paris and othor articles ot foreign manufacture tbat she neglected to tell ibecustomB inspectors about when she landed from the steamship Cl'y of Paris on Wednes day had been seized. She lives In Pittsburgh nud she describes herself as Miss Molly Jones. The trunk was marked A. J. Parcels, and It was Mild that Miss Jones and Mr. Parcels were members ot a millinery and dressmaking firm In Pittsburgh Theso are some of the things that were taken from the trunk: Ton dresses made In Paris, four silk vests, two mirrors, one fan. on cup, one fur cape, twenty-five pairs of kid glovs, one silk shirt, tnble cloths and napkins, four Pillon rovers, forty-four handkerchiefs two lace fichus one cashmere shawl, uud nine pioces ot silk and velvet. Miss Jones said that everything in the trunk was ber personal property, but she will have to prove tbat state ment before she cau get her dresses.

Pams. Sept. 10,-The bnnn.net glvn to-day at Vaudatwe by M. de Freyclnt. President of the Conncll and Minister of War. to thoFreuch Generals who are taking part in the army luamcmres, and to the military attaches who are watching them, was a most brilliant af fair. In fact, the bauiiltot may be said to have been more than a mere complimentary fea t. It was apparently selected as the occasion tor th French Government, through M. de Frer clnet, to give utterance to Its views upon the peace prospects of Europe M. de Freyclnet. during th cours of a peecb, made special rofcrence to tbe pucllio lendcncles of Franco. Hie leading Idea ot ' th mana-uvres, he said, was to throw light on nnd to give exercise In tho duties of a Com-mander-In-Cblet. The result howed that th supreme command worked as satisfactorily as army corps and divisional commands This was a very considerable result, and h con gratulated every one on It. from the eoldlor In the ranks to the Commander-in-Chief. Next year, continued th Minister ot War. the territorial troops will for th first time take part In the army niana uvree, and he trusted that the Generals would continue their efforts to perfect the army, which wa the principal element of France's Influence In the world. The progress made by the French army was dear av Idence of tbe fact tbat tbe Government ottho republic. In spite of surface changes, was capable of long-concolved designs. "Nobody," M. do Freyi Inet said, "now doubts that wo are slrung or that we shall prove to be wl'e.

Loud applause ) For the 110.000 soldiers gathered about v,endouvie for the piesont most extensive mamuuvres this has beon a day ot burnishing and furbishing, scrailug and cleaning, re pairs and replacements. Tbe plan ot this last period of sbnm fighting Is as follows- , Tho Fifth. Hivtb. heveuth. and Eighth Corps still form two armies, the llrst two under Oen. GallllTet, and the last two undir Gen. Davout. But Instead of manoeuvring ngatnst each other they will operate In conjunction with tho llrst and lltth divisions of cavalty under the command of Gen. Saussfer, tbe Commander-in-chief, who unto tbe present. haB only Intervened In the mana'uvies ns a director of the operations or as a referee From this date the headquarters of the entire; force Is at Vendeuvre, with Gen, de Mirlbel as Major General. Tbe skirmisher. or scouts of an enemy's army, represented bv twelve battalions of In fantry (six battalions of lifles nnd six ot ma rines), twenty squadrons of cavalry, and thir teen batteries of artillery, all under tne com mand of Gon. Boisdeffre. have reached the Marne, between Mtry-le-l'rani;ols and Salnt DMer. This army seems to bavo for Its ob jective point tb lino of the Aube. and then that of the Seine. The two armies, under oom mnnd ot Gen. Saussler, and concentrated at Vendeuvre, take tbe offensive, give battle to the enemy, drive them back, und oblige them to reeross tbe Murne. IbeCommander-lu-Cblef will conduct the'e operations, uen saussler's advance Is to cause tbe two united armies to go through all the experiences ot forced night and day marches, deployments, nnd concentrations, and to devote only one day to the battle proper. Tbe pursuit of the enemy will be the last phase of the offensive operations. 3RADES T.VIO.V COXORESS. Ths Qneattona of Child Labor asd Other Important Issue. Nfw Castle. Sept. 10. The vote In the Trades Union Congress yesterday on the amendment to tho eight-hour law resolution has greatly pleased the extrem ists as overruling the previous "permissive" amendment and enforcing the eight-hour law In all trade and occupations, except wbore a majority ot th organized mo rubers In any trade or occupation protest by a ballot vote against tbe proposal. But, In spi'e ot this vic tory, tbe extremists are hardly likely to re main satisfied with such a modified version of the eight-hour resolution passed nt the Trades Union Congress held at Liverpool in WM. The fact is that the majority of the labor unions have recognized tbe hopelessness of a compulsory eight-hour bill passing the House ot Commons, to say nothing of the House or Lords, and consequently they have adopted a more moderate measure, one out lined In an optional form as tbe line or attack likely to meet with the least resistance, and as best calculated to keep labor Interests to tbe fiont In Parliament and out of It. There are cool, level heads dlroctlng the labor armies in Great Britain, and the final outcome ot the powerful movement they have set In motion cannot at present be justly estimated. But its importance can bo judged from the fa"t that, while twenty years ago the laboring men ban. to all intents and rurposes. llttlo or no vole In the government ol tbe country, now Btitlsh legislators of all shades or opinion are closely watching tbe progress ot this so-called " Workmen's Parliament." A veteran parliamentarian speaking ot the labor movameut said to-day: "If no other good comes out of this labor movement in this country it will have accom plished an immense task lu having made tbe voice of labor respected and the domands ot lubor listened to with consideration." Among the subjects brought before tbe Con gress this morning vas tbat of the ago at which children should be allowed to work In factories. Tbe majority ot delegates w ere In favor of raising tbe limit of sge: a minority were opposed to It, Tbe majority based their argumonts upon humnue and moral principles; the minority asserted that raising tbe limit would be tbe means of taking a certain portion of the dally bread out of the mouths of mauy poor families who could not afford such a loss. Ihe de'egates were re minded tbat many boys and girls were. In cases of sickness, tne support of their parents and younger brotbers and sisters. These argu ments however, had little weight against tbe vttws expressed by those who st forth In cut ting words tb evils attendant upon allowing cdldrtn of tender years to labor in unhealthy factories whJIe exposed to hearing and seeing much that they should neither hear not see. Finally amotion to raise the limit to thirteen years was passed by a vote ot 20 ') to 103. To-day one of the tolltlcnl features of the work before the Congress was devoloped. It arose wbea the iiuestlon ot paying members ot Parliament camo up foi discussion. As is well known, membeis of tbe British Parliament re ceive no pay, and consequently it la a vary dif ficult matter for a poor man to get into Parlia ment, and a still more difficult matter for him to stay there If tin succeeds in being elected. Thus Itis that tho Iiish inemberot Parlia ment have as a rule, not being men of wealtb. been assisted by allowances from funds nub scrlned by the wishers for Ireland's prosperity, and in the sumo way several ot the few Eng lish members of Parliament elected from th working elapses and by tbo work lug elasses, have had to teiv upon their friends tor pecu niary usslstanco In order to auable them to give up their usual dally work to attend to tbe affairs ot their constituents. It waa announced In the Congress to-day that this iiuestlon. as wall as kindred uues tlons, such as th payment of members of County Councils sad School Boards, would com up at the next stsslon ot Parliament, and that the willingness of a candidate for Parliament at tb coming general election to vote for these payments would be made one ot tbe test upon which the trailen unionists will decide whet tier or not to support such a candi date. It will thus bo seen that th labor party seems inclined to ignore the old political par ties on the whole, and to support those who will support measures advoeated bythe Trades Union CongresH. Uut ing tho course of th business transacted by the Congress to-day tb delegates uassod resolution', condemning the sub-letting of Government contracts and holding that public bodies ought not to enter Into contracts with firms refusing to conform to th customs, hours, and wages-decreed as being just by tbe trades unions, Later In ih day Mr. Cbarles Fonwlck. M. P.. was re looted Parliamentary Secretary, or 8ortarr to tb parliamentary Committee of tb Trades Union COngrm, which committee carries out tb work laid out for It each year at th sessloi s of this labor parliament. The irlnclul of co4peintlon. bo far as co operative stores, workshops, factories, Ac, are concerned, was fresly discussed and approved by the delegates. The Funeral or Major Hnndy. PjtliiH, Sept. 10.

Blnco Dr. Justin's disastrous experiments he has con flied his attention more closely to tbe mechanical construction of tho projectile ot which he Is tho inventor. The shells first used wero rough and Impelled In their construc tion, nnd weak In some parte (there they Miould have boon strong. The Doctor was certain that th principle was nil rlyht. but tho failures made lorced him to acknowledge to himself that he was Ignorant ol tlin action on tho shell when it was being projertn t fr mi the gun.

As It has been the nbicit nr tho Inventor in making theso experiments to get the shell to leave the pun without llrst exploding, this shot wns looked upon as the most successful of nil. as it did notoxDlode after huvluc been driven with such terrillc lorce ngainst tho rocks. The second small shell was fired with like success, though It landed in sot t earth below tho roi'k le tge wbero the other shell struck.

The grand display, however, was when the Inrgo shell was thrown from th Blakely gun. This contained l'.O pounds of nltro-celalluo. and was expelled from the gun by thirty tounds of powder.

Holdby the State lor IOO.OOO a Tear Tiiomas V. Piatt, a One-Time Buyer Mountaineer Hay that It Must Cense, There Is just now In progress In the Legisla ture ot Tennessee a curious contest, whloh arises out of the different conditions. which prevail In the different sections of the State, and may yet lead to a Here and bloody war, tbo method and outcome of which can only be halt grasped br even those most familiar with the people. It Is a contest ap patontly between labor and capital, but really between twodlfferent kinds ot labor. A glance at the map ot Tennessee wilt sug gest that ths eastern part of the State Is set tled by an entirety different kind of people from the Inhabitants ot the western and mid dlo fcctlons. Such Is In fact the case. In Western and Ml Idle Tonnesse Is found a Plain, simple and prosperous class ot (armors, who support great manufactories and con tribute to tbe developments large towns and cities. There are lino farming lands, stretch ing In levels or gtntle slopes, nnd watered by ninnv rivers In East Tennessee, which has bnt a small proportion ut tho papulation of the State, the country Is moun'alnous. There are few faims, and these do not grow onottgli food products to support the inhabitants. The people are like moun tain folk everywhere gi ate. indolent. Igno rant, and determined In their Ideas ot freedom. Tothom freedom absolute liberty of action, with no interference from law. Is the first principle. They are ot an original American stock, and possess the American idea of liberty in its extreme. While the other people of the same class in Ihe two other sections ot tho big State are farmers or factory employees, they are miners wbon they turn their hands to any 0i.cup.1ti n. Between Past Tennessee and West and Mid dle Tonnes so there Is no sympathy nnd little Intercourse. Tbe legislators from East Ten nessee are in the Insignificant minority, and have no way ot Impressing tbe needs or wishes of Fast Tennessee upon the Government at Nashville. And horein lies the secret ot tho lingeilng argument in the Legislature re cently, and the flat denlnl of the Legislature ot th wishes of the East Tennesseeuns nnd ot thoso ntat officers, the Governor Included, whom the recent mining troubles have made familiar with tb true state ot affairs The present contest has been long prepar ing, and, however blinded the farmers and other local county Tennesseeans maybe, the outcome of It Is not doubtful. Tbe contest be gan twenty years ago. when the first lease ot convicts was signed. East Tennessee legisla tors have seen It coming, and at each coming ot the leaso question have tried to settle it. In the eonvict leaso si stem of Tennessee and ot other Southern States there is a fine Illus tration of that amiable. If at times Irritating, foible ot Human beings which leads thom to mind other people's business to tho neglect ot their own. Those gentle ladles and philan thropic men who weie mnde so hysterical by tbe recounting of tho misfortunes ot 'ar Si berian exiles might havo tound plenty to move their sympathies much nearer home. It has been the fortune of the writer of this article to see in tho city ot Knotville sights scarcely credible inaclvlllred country sight which were quite ns horrible to the nattvss of Tennessee who saw them as to the stranger. And if the Legislature of Tonnessee could be brought to seo the same things tbe question ot dollars would not count so largoly In Its do liberations as now. As a body the convicts ot Tennessee are quite as low as the most barbarous African tribes. Thoy uro largely negroes, convicted ot crimes which do not occur to minds In tbe least degree enlightened. But. under the laws of the State, many persons convicted ot trifling offences, here punishable by a few davs' sen tence to the workhouse, are there put in among these frightful specimens of humanity, to lose all self-respect and all chance of ever being decent again. The lease st,ioni. which began to ocerate twenty voars ago, bas bten renewal byion sout of tho Legislutur and the Governor four times sln o. th last time boing two ears ago, and the light upon it being vitv blttei. The 1.5U0 convicts aie rented tor tluo.OUJ ayeir to . company, ot which Hsnator 'Ibomns L. Piatt ot NewVorkwas until a year or two ago tho head This company has the right to work them In any part of the htate. ami at any law ful lnbor. In return It guaiantees to guard them feed them, clotno them, ana look to th-ir health, 1 be company pays the guards, whom It selects, but they are sworn In as State oltlcis In .Nashville there is a penitentiary, once used but now fallen Into a frightful decay. Tho convicts nave for twenty i ears worked In factories and in mines. Latterly the tendency has been to crnflne them to tho mine", as tha profit of unskilled labor Is there greater. The company sublets them to the lessees ot mln-s at i,u cents a day for each con Icr. But before taking up the conflict between this labor and fioo labor something shoul 1 bo said ot the life ot thoSH convicts They are hoi iled about from place to place like wild nn iniuK i bey have no pleasure. .So life could bo noire horrible. The wonder Is at llrst that moioUu not attempt suicide. But. as will be seeu. bcoics of tbem doc urt death The company counts upon the guards to get a certain amount of labor out nt each convict. As theguardB are from the lowest sort or white men lutbe State, tbe treutmeutot the wretches inn easily b" imagine I. sickness N not ouut ed as inability to work unle-s tbe wretih Is plninlv too feeble to move. The policy Is to work him until he drops, and thon cure him It possible; ir not, let him make vvav for some other criminal, foi there Is never a lnul.. Tbe guurd is absolute, and has no fenr ot punishment. He curses, kioks, clubs, oi kills at pleasure The company asks no questions, the State tins meagre chance of finding the truth, and would be slow to act unless public Indianiitlon should happen to be aroused. The guards stand over the couvlcts day and night, each guard having a Winchester on bis shoulder and a revolver strapped to his side. Tbe convicts are not chained or otherwise guarded. They know too well, from fieuuently seeing, what th penalty ot an attempt to es cape Is. In fact, to i inks a dash for liberty Is simply a way of committing suicide. And the desperate state of ttu minds of tho convicts may begot at fiom the fact that tonvictsdo frequently court denth by making this bold dash. llu. lew ever escape. Tho rifle rings out its chnllouge The couviet runs on a bit. Thou his striped and rnggod legs begin to tot ter, and then le sinks down. Anolelsitug, and the do id elira' Is fot out of sight speedily. Any gu.iid i nn tell von many a tale. Each has Its garnishment of strange incident and tho chances iito that lie will bonstand laugh a good deal. If the convict is only "winged' there Is a coilo of ingenious punishments whl di lipgulltt the tedium of guard llle. There Is niiothi'r aud similar codo foi those conviits who i ol use to work through ehsiiuny or protended sick cess, or who do not do us much woik ns the guards sie up his muscle and sinew to be capable of. It may be thought that Ihe people ot Tounes se would have grasped the enormity of this mora than Siberian offeuco against civiliza tion, aud would havo put a stop to It. But It must be remembered that few of the people evci see these things, aud further, that to touch the oonvlet lease system means to touch tbat most sensitive organ, the poclcothook. To abolish th lease system mean to lose the $100,000 which Svna t'T Piatt nnd his associates formerly paid, which the present lenBlng company cow pays. It means that the State must pay for tbe sup port of tnese convicts, must build a great pen Itontlary, musthiie guards and doctors, aud must keep up n penal establishment of mi gronter iiingniliido than tho mde stockades lho leasing company now provides All this means taxation, and the peonlo of Tenneisee do no; lora to ba lave t. The people of Middle and West Tcnnes.ee have "niched the pushing of tbe convicts Into Fot Tennessee with gi eat satisfaction. They do not want them hack again. The preventing of this they now put undet the bead of uphold ing the dignity of tbe State, blinded to tbe true meaning of that lofty and most laudable phrase. But no ono denies tbe evil of ths sys tem. They only look about and say. " What are we to do? After wblle-wben tbe lease ex pires. Let us now live up o our contract." Ths small details whina forceJ the present fight were explained In Tub Sun at the time ot tbe armed resistance of the miners. They do not need repeating here. Tbe broad, general ground ot the conflict is sufficient. As has linen said, the convicts can be used with especial advantage in the mining distrlctB beeausu thoy are unskilled laborers, bunging only muscle to the work of preduotlon. fur ther, thuii use In tbo manufactories led to such bitter quarrels with the skilled laborers neces sary trior lu cortaln ilopartments, that the ls Beesllimlly found small market for their wares. no. gnidiiitlli, iiioraiuid more copvlctH were puhud Into tho mining districts. The pi kes pslii to tho free miners were at llrst not affect ed, because the convict mines showed no dis position to cut tbe coal market. Bnt of late years tbe competition has grown tlero between tbe various mines, and th convict mints be gan to use tb advantage they bad. They could mine coal at a profit at 1 W cent bnsbel, Th mines employing free labor could not sell otU's than it cents u bushel. , ,.... Tho mine lessees who employed free Jbor had other reasons besides this for looking en viously upon their neighbors who employed convicts. Ireo latior may do many things whloh convict cannot. It may work or not. it may tnke days off. It may under the laws ot the State appoint a person to oversee the weighing of the conl. nnd prevent the company from taking advantoges In the wny of underweight, thus losenlng the wngys nt tbe minor. So the convict system grew In favoi with lho rompanlosopernjlng mlneB.and the wages of froo miners ininedown. Ihe ire miners felt tbat tho time had come to net Aud now let us seo vi hat sort of people tbe froo miners nto 'lobejln with thev are native Americans, having strong Ideas of porsonnl liberty and of lho light ol a man to enrn a liv ing for his family s i long ns lie does not pre vent his neighbors fiom doing llkewlso. lhey are genuine mountain , people-wild, uncouth.

Of course somo of tho soldiers wore under age, but It must also be accounted that sijme or the voters were too old to fight. Basldo this enlist ment or 4i.tH0 out of 55.000 votors. there was noonsl lernt'le number of lho mon who re mained near homo to carry on a most destruc tive nnd impartial guerilla warbire. bo It haptens that these miners know how to oiganlre and bow to obey le idors, as well as to command, 'lhey tiro skilled in the use of weapons to nn oxtent which commntids tho admiration ot all who know them.

When thevilecided that thet had bad enough ot tho convicts, they simply drove them out. lbry mude no noise about it, wrote no cards to the newspapers, llsteued to no In flammatory speeches proclaimed no princi ples of aunrchr or social revolution, lhey simply and calmly put the convlctfl nnd guards on the tritns and sent thorn into Juioivllle with the iniunetlon to return no more. The militia of the Htato came, bring ing the convicts imck. With the most admir able coolness and good humor, thoy sent nilllila and convicts buck to Knoxvllle. Then the Governor realized what a hopeless under- , tat lug It was to resist such people. He arranged a compromise. The convicts woietoieturn to work. Ho was to call to gether the Loclslature hnd the convict lea-e cystem was to be repealed. The mountaineers agreed to this nnd have kopt their word. But thev said In the llrst plice that convict labor in East Tennessee minos wasendei and Gov. Buchanan knnws that this means what It says. (lATLOItn- ROBIXSOX.
