AN ELECTRICIANS DREAM.
CSBS AND ADVANTAGE* OF REGENT DISCOVERIES
IN ELECTRIC LIGHTS A VALUABLE 8UOGES
TION TO GAS COMPANIES?A REVOLUTION IN
HOCSEHOLD SCATTERS PROMISED -PECULIARI
TIES OF RECENT INVENTIONS.
Washington, Nov. 23. 1878.
A* complete nacres* in illuminating by tbe electric
light in <l?y by day approaching nearer, uud an every
thing of interest on this all absorbing topic in lock d
for with the greatest anxiety by the public, I took J
advantage of a recent opportunity to speak with Mr.
J. IE Fuller, the electrician, of the probable effect of
recent Uiscoveriet upon vestid interests and the eco
nomic advantages to society generally.
EFFECT ON THE OAS CCMI'ANITS.
With regard to the effect of general illumination
upon gas companies Mr. Fuller differs materially
ironi the expn-ised opinion ef many other electri
cians with whom I have conversed.
'?They will, of courtp. receive a severe cheek,"
said he, "which, probably, they justly deserve, and
w hich may, oud will, for a time at least, greatly re
duce the value of their stock; but in the end, and
that at not a very remote period, there in no
good and valid reason why they may not fti'ly
recover their temporary loss, and, instead of decreas
ing. increase their business to an enormous extent;
and there are now iuventors in Washington turning
their attention to thin subject with a view of carry
ing out the following suggestions?
"There in nothing more inevitable than that gas,
for illuminating purposes, will wry roon be reduced
to lens than one-eighth of the present production, and
tlist the elei tnc fluid, with ail its purity and health
fulness, will be substituted for it. Now. let the gas
companies of the United States agree at once to offer
rewards, sav, of #50,000, $2t>,0U0 and #15,000 for the
Irst, second and third best inventions in gas stoves
n which all the products of combustion are carried
Jffby the chimney, and the best adapted to all the uses
if the modern house, from the parlor to the kitchen.
Then let the builders offer similar rewards or prizes
for the best models of bouses adapted to the eeonom
ical use of gas fuel, and tin thousands and thousands
of American inventors, with (heir heads brimming '
full of brain, only waiting for proper inducements,
will toon furnish all that is required in this direc
tion. Then we shall see a new era in domestic in
dustrv.
bad fob anthracite combinations.
"The almost boundless fields of bituminous coal,
which for countless agos have lain undisturbed, will
then open and pour forth their contents to all the
large cities of the Union. The gas that can be pro
duced from this coal, while unfit for illumination,
h-is tremendous heating qualities, as has been fre
quently proven. aDd is mm-h less costly than our gas
as at present generated. This, I remark incidentally, 1
will of course put a quietus upon the coal monopolies
of Pennsylvania.
"There will be then no more setting up and taking 1
down of stove.*, and the inevitable and consequent !
'ami!y jars, there will be no more necessity for big- I
ging up coal in coal hods, no emptying ash barrrls.
No industry would suffer, but perhaps Dixon's stove I
polish, and even that would be wanted in making 1
?lectric carbons. When the electric light supersedes I
ga* then the manufacture of copper would be j
greatly increased for tbn construction of machines !
and conductors, and the value of copjier shares would ,
undoiibt-slly go up. Much house may also have a I
?mall electric motor for running sewing machines !
and machine* for other light work, there being a I
Jirge number already patented, but useless when run
r>y expensive battery currents. Those who expect to
work heavy machinery at. a distance from the gene- '
rater will certainly 1* disappointed. The same may j
oe said in regard to heating buildings by electricity. ,
1 o carry ont tueso views no material alterations would
>e required in the present gas plant, such as pipes I
fcc.; tne manufacture would be simplified, inasmuch I
is some of the component parts of coal gas, which '
produce the must heat, cannot bo burned openly in a
room on account of their nnhcalthiness, but in* such
a stove as suggested above it would be much safer to
burn than coal in our ordinary stoves.
OLD INVENTIONS MADE VALUABLE,
"There is a very curio us tact In relation to thninven
tion of electric lights, and on' which very tew people
would ever think of unless their attention was called
to if specifically. I allude to the fact that the intro
duction of magneto-electric machines lis., rendered
very valuable many old inventions, which, with bat
teries, were useless, bnt now, with slight modifica
tions, they are wo.il adapted to the best modern elec
trio machine*. The attention of inventors lias betm
recently occupied, and is now in fact being occupied
in devising means for subdividing the current of
powerful machines, so that a large number of lights,
each of the power of a single gas burner, may be pro
duced in a single circuit, each independent of the
other and convenient and easy to govern like gas. re
quiring no very extraordinary intelligence to manage
and also in producing a meter by which the time of
burning and quantity burned rnav be registered
He veral iuventors claim to have ai-coniplishcd nil
these objects, notably Mr. Edison, as I am informed."
SUBDIVISION OF THE I.I OUT.
Inasmuch as Mr. Fuller intimated to me that he
had pateuls pending for the accomplishment of all
these object* 1 obtained his permission to question
th' examiner fn the Patent Ottl.e as to his system of
subdivision of tne light. The examiner assured ine
that by this system the current could be divided into
local circuits, in which the luminous points arc
placed, and that ea. h and all were abaobitelv inde
pendent ?f each oth-r. The luminous prints tor the
electric lights may be of carbon, porcelain kaolinUr
platinum, all of which w re trt.-d over twenty five
years ago, bnt tailed on account of the battery cur
rents then employed.
In regard to the utilization of the pre*- gt - as fix
tures. tnry wiU undoubtedly an be nsed in the new
lights, al-o the street lamp-posts, but the street
mains will probably be di#>nrded, for. aa above
stated, they would l>e required for gas fuel, an.) even
if they were not, the gas would soon destroy the in
aulation.
In reply to a question by your correspondent Mr. I
Fuller stiit'-il that he hud never kept h.s inventions '
ws ret some tour previous patents, one dated October
Id, 1875), but that they were all publicly exposal in '
the machine shop where they were m.idc and
workr-d, it being a general machine shop. It is not
noreeaary to go into details, but in a few week* his
systems, under his new patent now ho|?-d to issue by
th.' Patent OAce, will be in i peration in one of the
inn at pnbllc location* In New York city, where
all will hare an opportunity of judgin" for
themselves of tbe mcr.ta of his plans fn.tn aetual
observation. There is one in itter In regard to
Mr. Edison that Mr. Fuller desired ni" to state and
.hat is, that be considered liim (Edison; the m> st fer
tile invenLir in the world: no one haa ever ap
proached him, and that, while knowing nothing of
ais lab: inventions or the electric light, he knows
?ro ugh of th. man and his former inventions to feel
lonfioent that, in tine, his most -'angiiinc expecta
tion* will ?>e fnlly realized. Jn,| thlt jt ^ h|kl gIvan

tail given to telegraphy he would have been far

mre.

THE STEWART OUTRAGE.
INTEREST IN THE CASE BEG IN NINO T<A WANE
FOIl WANT OF ANA' SUSTAINING DEVELOP
MENTS.
"The ro is absolutely nothing new to communicate
in relation totlie profanation of Mr. Stewart's grave,"
said Judge Hilton last evening. The Judge lielil hi*
usual conference wi'h Iuspetor Murray, but re
mained only a fiw minuter, w hereaa he has hereto
fore spent an hour or two with him each day. The
police have all united upon the theory thatthe missing
hack driver. Kelly, had a baud in the outrage. His ac
tions on the night of the outrage, the lie he told to
aeoouut for hi* whereibouts when he returned the
next day, the large sum of money he displayed and
his sudden and unexplained flight prove almost con
clusively that he was engaged in some crime on that
night, and, so far as known, the Stewart outrage
was the only one committed at that time.
His fight was chronicled in these columns
at the time, and hia probable connection with
the roblicrv pointed out. All auliaequent informa
tion?and ft has been but little?concerning his mwve
meuts lias tended to strengthen that theory. The
police, however, did not lay much struts upon it
until every "dlmr possible clew In their hands had
lieen evlic listen, ami they were obliged to adopt this
or admit that tlicy could dis?-over nothing at all about
the perpetrators of tbe criiue. It i* suspected that
Kelly ha:, been frightened by the hue and cry raised
about hitn and has gone to Canada. Ivtectives who
had been hard at work on the case are returning to
their ordinary duties, ami the indefatigable letter
writers la-gin to weary of payiug postage on missives
to Judge Hilton Unless something is unearthed
within a ilay or two tho ease will likely pass into
history. and th- resurrectionists can shake hands in
quiet freedom with the Manhattan bank burglars.
WASTED ENERGY.
The Herald is still in daily receipt of no end of
letters telling where the body is concealed or furnish
ing the names of persons implicated in stealing It.
Clue of there correspondents gave tho name of a cooper
who diKSp;s ar<-d on the night of the robbery and has
not since bi en heard from. It was stated that he hail
pr< pared a barrel for the reception of the body and
had hooped it up and tilled it with spirits after tho
robbery. The Hehalii investigated many surh
"clews" as this; hut, as they led to nothing, nothing
was written about theiu. In tho case referred to it
was found that the cooper, a theretofore steady
father of a family, had indeed run away with a
body, lint it was that of a young widow of
twenty-seven, who ia still alive and kicking. The
man is titty-two, and leaves a wife and two children.
Another letter gave expressions said to hive dropped
from the lips of tho janitor of a large tenement down
town, and connecting him with the crime. The man
proved to be honest in every respect, and the letter
was probably wri ten by some tenant who had been
dunned for his rent.
AN EXTRAORDINARY STORY.
A private detective, who has an office on Broad
wsy, is the author of a story put in circulation yes
terilay concerning an alleged crime at a lying in
asylum in this city. As lie declines to furnish
names or locate the institution his statements
were received with caution. The detective alluded to
states that on Thursday last a woman known to him
made affidavit that about the 1st of October she was
taken to the house of "a prominent uptown physi
cian," who performed three or four surgical
operations upon her; that she was then driven to tho
lying-in establishment kept by a woman in league
with the physician, and while there wit
nessed what she believes to have been a
horrible crime. According to the story she
became acquainted there with a young
woman who' had formerly been a domestic with a
family in Forty-eighth street, and who was iu a dan- j
gcrous condition. Two days later this young woman
died, and?always following the story?her body was
placed upon a board, to which came two men of re
pulsive appearance, conducted by men of the estab
lishment. While the door of the room was
open for a minute she saw one of tho j
men raise one arm of the corpse with
his left hand, while iu his right he held a bright
steel instrument?then the door was closed. Next
day the deponent asked the mistress what had become
of the body of the deceased inmate, and was told that
it was taken away by two men. "I have," said this j
ogress very frankly, "to employ them to Ret rid of
the patients who die here, and they have to take the
bodies awuy at night so as not to arouse the bus- |
picions of tile neighbors."
The private detective, who asserts that this story is
true, was asked last night whether he intended to
arrest the guilty jgwsou*. He regretted, lie said, that
he would be unable to do so, as, uubappily, the
"prominent physician" and the deponent, "a lady
moving iu the best circles of New York aociaty," as
w ell as the woman who kept the den, had all left the
city.
CITY' BBIGANDK.
A GANG OF ROWDIES ATTEMPT TO ROB THK
GRAND STREET GBOR8TOWN CARS.
The Grand Street Gross town line of ears, that ran
between Grand and Desbroases street ferries, have for
the past two months started a car every fifteen rain
utos alter midnight until five o'clock in the morning,
when the cars run on their usual daily time. Of lsto
the drivers of these ears, which are of the bobtail va
riety, havn bee a molested and their lives threatened
by a gang of roughs who follow theni along their
route until a seelu.led quarter is reached, when they
attack them and attempt to get at the money bos iu
the front part of the car, which always contains the
sum of fit). From the start at Grand street ferry
until the car roaches Broadway the route Is uompara.
tively safe, bat it is after leaving Broad
way and passing South Fifth avenue and
down Drwbrussen street that the danger flies.
About two weeks ago. as one of the cars was passing
through Washington street, ii'-ar Ix-sbroaaes, It was at
tacked by four of the gang, who were concealed be
hind a pih of brt< k*. lac* waited until the vehicle
got quite near, when they sprang out together. Two
of them took hold of the horse, another entered
the rear of the car, it is supposed to
divert the attention <4 the driver, while
the fourth made s 'lash for the money box.
Fortunately -the driver did not lose his self-posses
sion. and, picking up his mr hook, he succeeded iu
beating them off. nnt not before they bad captured $'j
from the rorrpt vie. f)n several more recent occa
sions this ssme thing has occurred to otherdrlvers, so
to guard against it precautionary measures have bem
taken to give the offenders a warm reception. This
was discovered on Hatuidsv night, when s westward
bound car was stopped at Sullivan street by the driver
of one going in sn opposite dirortion.
"They are laying for you." ssirl the driver. "They
are in Washington and prepared to Jump in the car
when it comes along."
There was a sr nsatlflU among the few passengers
who interpreted the road employe's words correctly
and prepared t hem selves for an adventure in the heart
of tho city. But the action of a per?on among them
was somewhat reassuring.
"We have prepared for these tellows." said he, and
ho produced a fi rmidsblc revolver. He was an agent
of the company, artufrt to the tenth. afld ihvwtiguion
showed that such a one now does duty on all tho ears
that pss? across town du-ing the "ice ems' hours."

numbered that, six weeks ago last Saturday Mr. Lea- |
man fell frrro a horizontal bar at Louisville, sustain. !
ing injuries whirli paralyzed his lower limbs. He was i
carefully nursed by the kind ladies of Louisville, and
h.vl recovered to such an extent that it was thought
advisable to bring him home. He arriv/d here bv boat
last Thursday and was taken to b>* rasideare, Xo.
612 Walnnt street, where ho had lair, perfectly lt>?!
acloiis until last night, when his spirit passed away.
His lower limbs hail shrivelled to almost nothing'
and the once strong athlete was mora helpless than a

KIDNAPPING GRANT.
DENIAL OF THE STORY THAT THE JAMES
brothers tried to capture him.
[From the St. Pant Pioneer-Press.^
The reader* of the Pi'>nt?r-I're*i undoubtedly read
the article in Sunday's paper with reference to the
attempted kidnapping of General Grant in the spring
of lHtVt, in which it was rsportel that the two
Younger brothers, the James brothers and .John
Jarrett were connected. With an idea of getting at
the facts in the case, the reporter, through the kind
ness of the warden, Captain Heed, was permitted to
interview Cole Younger, wlfo, lifter carefully reading
the article referred to, denied the thing in toto, and
pro -ceded io relate the condition of affairs at the time
as know n to himself and borne out by hiatory. Gov
ernor Allen, he says, never made any such proposition,
for being on confidential terms with hint and holding
many cuuvi rnations upon the situation and condition
of affairs, he would tut very likely to have known
something about it. Besides, (he James brothers were
at this time with (Juaut roll's guerrillas in Missis
sippi and never wer.- in Louisiana at all. Jim aud j
Bob were not in the artuv at the time mentioned, they
both liehig unite young, aged respectively fifteen and
eight years. Tltey were at home. Colo's whereabouts
and operations he rclnted as follows:?in the fall of
1WBI, he, in charge of one company, and David C.
Poole of another, under command of Captain John
Jarrett, with 'JOO men strong, acting as partisan
rangers in the detached service, caino from Missouri
by way of Texas. a march of nearly one thousand
miles, to drive off the freebooter* who were stealing
and carrying off everything of value upon the Missis
sippi River, and their first raid was made on Decem
ber at, 1HC3. Fights were hail at Omeka, Milligan's
Bend and Goodrich's Landing, from whictf they fell
back to Bastrop about (he "J7th of the same month.
They succeeded in driving everybody, save the set
tlers, off the river from Milligan's Bend to I.alte Provi
dence, a distance of about one hundred miles by thn
river. One thing only successfully resisted their
raid, and that was a camp of smallpox patients. They
naturally considered themselves unable to take that,
and retired in haste. There were no regular federal
troops in this vicinity at that time. There was conf
siderahle fighting, hokrever, and much hlnodshed
bnt all prisoners taken were treated as prisoner* o,
war.
. At the conclusion of the raid the command went to
General Shelby's at Camp Whitehall, in Camden,
Ark., and Cole there joined the regular army. This
was in Jauuary. 1RM. Joe Lee remained at Moore
house parish, Biudrap, raised a battalion and opera
ted from that time until the. close of the war upon
the Mississippi River.
The siege of Vicksbnrg was in 1W5.7, and thai plarn
surrendered in July of that year, after which, and at
the tiiue of the alleged attempt at kidnapping. Gen
eral Grant was iu Virginia. The headquarters of tho
federal army were at Jackson. Miss., aud not at Milli
gan's Bend, while the commands of the Southern
army wort* vested in General Kirby Smith, com
mander ot tbi! trans-Mississippi department; General
Holmes, of the State of Arkansas; General Sterling
Price, of the army in the field; General Shelby,
of the brigade, and General Marmaduke, of the divis
ion.
During the conversation Cole became very much
interested, talking quite earnestly and describing the
seem* and incidents with much minuteness, in this
connection it may he remarked that the officers of
the Penitentiary have relaxed none of their original
vigilance toward the Younger brothers, but ever keep
a watchful eye upon their tnbveraents. The whole
discipline of the prison is excellent, being at a higher
standard than ever before known in the history of the
nstitution.
CHIVALRY" IN TEXAS.
[From the Waco (Texas) Examiner.]
The particulars of quite a serious affair to the Agri
cultural and Mechanical College near Bryan have just
reached the city. Tt seems that a small sum of money
had been stolen from the room of aeadet named White
sides, ami another cadet,"a t>oy seventeen or eighteen
years of age, was siispeeted of tho theft. One night
last week Whiteside* and two comrades induced the
suspected cadet to accompany them in a walk, and
when they bad got a short distance buyond'the epilogs
grounds one of them suddenly drew a pistol and pre
senting it at his head ordered him to stand. They
then told him he must confess. The young man would
not confess, but. on the contrary, declared his inno
cence, whereupon they fastened a ropo around
his neck aud hung him to a tree.
After allowing him to hang a moment he
was lowered to the ground aDd again tokl
to confess, bnt. again protesting his innocence, waa
the second time drawn up. When the rope was slack
ened after the second hanging the body sank to the
ground, to all appearance dead. One of the three
young ruffians became alarmed at what had been
itone, supposing (heir victim dead, and ran away, but
the other two remained witn the young man until he
had returned to consciousness. Then, by making
threats, they exacted from hint a promise that he
would never speak of what they bad done to him.
Disregarding his promise, however, the injured cadet
went straight to President Garth*right and inform.si
hitu of tho treatiD 'nt he had received. The president
culled a meeting of the faculty, and the three perpe
trators were promptly expelled and started home.
The authorities'of Washington county learned of tho
affair, and ut once took steps to arrest the parties.
Whitestdes was arrested at the depot in Hempstead
ami taken back to Bryan. At laat accounts he was in
the Bryan jail. The other two, whose names wo have
not learned, had not been arrested when we last board
from Bryan.
A BRUTAL NECK TWISTER.
[From the Ogdt nsburg (N. Y.) Advance.]
George Putney, of Lisbon. N. Y.. was arrested last
week for au attempt to murder Mrs. Samons. wife of
the late Stephen Samons. A few years ago Putney
married an adopted daughter ot Mr. and Mrs. Samons.
Mr. SamotiH at hie death willed his property to his
witb, which at her death was to be inherited by Mrs.
Putney. Soou after Mrs. Putney died. I*wving~ati in
fant daughter. Putney thought that if Mrs. Samons
was out of the way the property would go to thechlld
and he would get it litiusetf. < hi the evening of Sat
urday, November fl. ho came in and found Mrs. Sa
luon*. as be supposfsi, alone with tho babe. Hr seised
her and attempted to break hi r neck by twisting her
head, lie supposed be had a tupliKlstd his purpose,
and threw her over tie- cradle, trying to make it ap
pear that she had fallen anil killed hwrir-it. There
was. however, a woman up stairs, who, hearing the
noise, came down and gave till- alarm to the neigh
bors. They at once came and found that Mrs. Xatnoria
hail revived and that Putney was again assaulting her.
They interfered and took the wouian anil child away.
On Tuesday Putney was arrested and taken before
Justice Mock, of Ogdcnsburg, and sent to Canton to
await thn action of the Grand Jury.
