told her companion she only Intended having
a few minutes' talk with the priest. Mrs JJol
i ton waited a hall hour, and flnnlly became
nlarmed when Miss At a did not return.
Bhe remembered that tho missionary had
spoken ot receiving letters In which her lite
was threatened, and foartd she had come to

BDetectlvos who were sent out learned from the

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

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. Wo know how to maintain
that calmness and dignity In days of misfor
tune which have paved the way to recupera
tion." 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.

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

The Doctor was certain that th principle
was nil rlyht. but tho failures made lorced him
to acknowledge to himself that he was Ignorant

by thirty tounds of powder. The llrst

It is generally believed In Brooklyn that an

until tbe block on Washington street belwoeu

block n Johnson. 1 ulton. and Washington

poses President Wagstaff said yesterday:
' It seems to me that tl ecourse imperatively
demanded of the trustees Is to move for the
extension of the tracks right up to Johnson
street; sweeping awiy the block of buildings
tbat cow stand in tho way. W bother the block
between Tillary and Johnson streets is re
moved for the advance ot the bridge or not,
the triangular block bounded by Johnson. Ful
ton, and Washington streets ought to tie cleared

sooner this project Is pushed through, the
better it will be, In my opinion, for the people
of Broeklyn."

SIBERfA IN TENNESSEE.
THE COrtCT LABOR THAT THE STATE
SELLS IX THE MIXES.
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

Of course somo of tho soldiers wore under age,
but It must also be accounted that sijme or the

When thevilecided that thet had bad enough
ot tho convicts, they simply drove them out.

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

cystem was to be repealed. The mountaineers
agreed to this nnd have kopt their word. But

Advices From Serernl Countries In W.ilch

In the republic of Venezuela there Is now
hope that tho boundary dispute with Urltlh
Guiana may bosottlel by a compromise The
attitude of the llrltNh troops on Ihe frontlr la
less mouaclncthan it was some time ago. and
Venezuela Ii believed to be rendv to make ter
ritorial concessions, on account of the failure
of her recent attempt to obtain aislstnnco fro'a
the Government ot the United State. There
is very little doubt that th3 B'ltlsh will secure
the i lch mining district that hav beon so loin:
In dispute. The Italian Czar was the arbi
trator In tbo dispute between French Guiana
nnd Dutch Guiana over another mineral re
gion, and tbe fact tbat he has decided in favoi
r the Dutch claim Is tnterestlns in view of the
present relation between tae itusslun and
l'rnch Governments.

fast as tbey ian find the means r irettlnc
avvar from it They say that tbe Argentine
Government has broken all tbe promises by
which It Induced them to nn there nnd that
they could not find any way of making ally

Th Brazilian Conerss has disappointed th

ot Its factionalism, itsneslect of those publio
questions that require attention, and it Inter

have not been realized. Uut the people nre

them linve taken un tbe lands that are ottered

the residents of Low. Ottawa county, have
taken a stand nuntnst paying taxes Tbe popu

population of Ireland. Thoy set the authori
ties at defiance and oh nil enure evic

become that n meeting was held
at Hull to-duv at which It was decided to send
up the forty-third lteglment to enforce law
and order nnd support tbe authorities In car
rying out their work of colleatlnc the taxes In

IViin This Mas Murdered! V
IiAMDrr.TTiLT.E, Sept. 10, There is much
speculation as to whether the man found float
ing in Ihe feeder ot the Delaware nnd Rarltan
Canal at this place yesterday was murdered.
The man was evidently a German about 45
years old Tho pockets of bis clothlnr were
tilled with stones.
'lho Coroner's .jury rendered an open ver
diet, but It l probable ibat a further investi
gation will be made In view of development
which whloh tend to show that the man met
with foul play. A more careful examination
if the body. to-day showed that there were
marks and biuise whloh indicated a violent
death.
