Washington, May 9. Tho commis
sioner of patents issued threo patents to
Thomas A. EdiBon, assignor to tho
Western Union telegraph, covering the
features of a speaking telephone. The
original application wns filed in 1887,
but, owing to the intervention of other
applications covering tho same inven
tion, the patonts wero delayed. The
last obstaclo to tho issuance of there
patents was tho Berliner application.
upon which a patent was issued last
November. These inventions of Edi
son have bien granted foreign patents,
some of which have already expired.
This raises the question whether an
American patont, issued after the expi
ration of a foreign patent, is valid, tlio
application for tho American patent
having been filed prior to tho date of
the front of the foreign patent. This
question will, it is thought, be brought
before the United States Supreme
court, several Circuit Court judges hav

Si'iiixofikld, O., May 0. Robert G.
Iugcrsoll lectured here this evening,
and in an interview talked freely on na

"Harrison will mako n weak candi
date, Judee Gresham or Maj. McKin
ley are much moro preferable. McKin
Iey is a etrone man and made a magnifi
cont canvass. Hlaino would make a
strong raeo, but I don't think bo would
accent tho nomination. His strength
would bo affected by tho announcement
that ho would not accept the nomina
tion." Speaking of the report that Cleveland
had been persuaded to forego his ambi
tion for tho presidency, and his friends
bad decided on 8 ubstituting Chief Jus
tico Molvln Fuller, Mr. Ingersoll said:
"Tho only opposition to Puller's can
didacy is that it is hardly 1 consistant
with American ideas to hold the office
of chief justico and also become a candi
date for presidont. If ho should resign
it would give President Harrison n
chance to appoint a Republican, and
tho Democrats wouldn't agree to it."
Col. Ingersoll thought the Democracy
could not afford to nominate either Hill
or Cleveland, nnd thought tho tariff
would bo the paramount issue of tho
Arretted for Kinbezxlement.

Porter, during Buchanan's administra

used in exploring the "Great American
Desert." Tho camels were broko to
carry burdens and also to drive in har
ness. MrJolly related his first experience
on reaching Los Angales : A German pic
nic. waB in full blast near the city. A
span of camels were hitched to a wagon
aud a party of soldiers driven by Hi Jolly
went to the picnic. About 300 teams
were hitched around the grounds and
half of them broke loose; wagens and
carriages were smashed, women and
children screamed, men shouted and
riot reigned supreme. Mr. Jolly placed
himself under protection of the military
and was in hiding for five days before
the irate "sons of the Fntherland"
curbed their angry passions and al
lowed tho caravan to proceed.
"The Old Pilot" says a remnant of
the footsore camels were gathered and
