(Wlaslnmjton SECRECY OF EDISON. HOW "THE WIZARD" GUARDS AGAINST SHARPERS Pxperlrnrc lias Tuugtil Him ■» Work lliiielly -Taken Advantage of h) vieii l« Whom Principle Is an I nknovvu Commodity Ills ■Mails for Hie fill ore are Known Only in Himself. What has become of Edison? What lias lie been doing lately, what is lie doing or what is he about to do? These are questions which have been repeatedly asked during the past two or three years, hut never satisfactorily answered. Billy Lewis of Kansas City, an old and intimate friend of " The WizarJ," was in town a few days during the past week, says the Cincinnati iv'/i --quirir, and enlightened some anxious inquirers. "Edison is by 110 means an extin guished light," said he. " That brain of his is as active and fertile as ever. liut he isn't talking so much about his plans as was formerly his custom, lie has innumerable ' big things' on hand, and not a few completed; but the completion of an invention no longer implies making it known to the public, according to Edison's new code. He has had enough of that. For a long time it was his custom to good naturedly grant interviews, out lining his plans and ideas. The re sult was, in most cases, a hint to imi tators and adapters, which enabled them to compete in the manufacture of Edison's inventions as soon as a model could be obtained. Long and bitter litigation ensued, which, as a whole, was disastrous to Edison to the extent of hundreds of thousands, per haps millions of dollars. The harpies were prepared for him, and could manufacture the instruments and ma chinery almost, if not quite as cheaply and quickly as he could. He then found, too, that a United States patent does not protect. " Aside from the cost of legal pro ceedings, the sale of his products was greatly injured by thir underhand ri valry. In no other country has he been treated so shabbily as in his na tive land. Most foreign governments stipulated that he manufacture al] parts Of HIB several ItivrnMons fn tltefi country before they would grant him patents, but they protected him when he did so. Not so. in the United States. He speaks the truth when he says that he has never made a dollar cut of his patents in this country. " Hereafter Mr. Edison will work out his ideas to a finish and manufac ture an abundant supply of the goods before vouchsafing publicity. That is oue reason for bis apparent inactivity- "Another cause of his tilence was liis recent experience in Wall street. So long as he entrusted the manage ment of the various branches of his enterprises to his associates and trusted lieutenants all went all. But just as soon as the companies were consoli dated and the stock listed on the ex change, the sharpers put the knife into nim and he lost the supreme con trol which he had always held over his own business. The experience was enough to discourage any man. But has it not been the common fate of genius? " A few days ago there was not a happier financial family on earth than the Edison group. The inventor re warded those who had aided and stood by him in his struggling and obscure days by presenting each with an in terest in his particular branch—an eighth, a sixteenth or a thirty-second, as the case might be. The work was apportioned off according to the sev eral specialties of the men. There was Ed. Johnson, who was made Busi ness Manager and later Vice President. Charlie Batchelor, who came to this country to set up the machinery for the Clark Thread Company in Newark, N. J., was given charge of the ma chine works or dynamo manufacturing plant. The mechanic who first did the delicate work on Edison's tele phone took the responsibility of the lamp factory. Old man Kreusi, as he was affectionately called, was general factotum, and to him every knotty problem was referred. When, after a lengthy consulalion, they were all ' stuck,' some one would suggest, ' la;t's ask Kreusi.' No matter how difficult the problem, they always got an answer, and it invariably proved to be correct. " Edison rewarded these men liber ally, for they all had been very poor with hiin. The man who first made his telephone (whose name I cannot recall) lived in a dingy little house on Wooster or Mercer street, in New York city. The front room was his workshop and he occupied the rear rooms with his wife and three children. His only assistant was a hoy. Often times he had to ' scrimp' his own family in order to pay the boy's wages promptly. But that was characteris tic. Then, and ever afterward, he made it a rule of his life that every employe of bis should receive his wages in lull on Saturday night, even though he himself had to go without money. After E lison had made a number of telephones Prefident Orton, of the Western Union, gave him an or. IT for 000 of them, provided they were delivered on or before a certain date. Edison immediately accepted and signed a cun'.ract. ' I don't think you can do it J Edison,' said Mr. Orton. ' Tin* time is too sliort. However, we will he lenient.' •' The instruments were all delivered more than a week before the time mentioned in the contract. " This was the real beginning of Edi son's prosperity,"continued Mr. Lewis, " The British government soon ad vertised for bids on 11, Odd telephone-. Mr. Oilon advised Edison to contest for the contract. The Siemens and other great European manufacturers were in the Held; but Edison's figures were below theirs, and bis date for de livery a week earlier, so he was awarded the contract. His defeated rivals pre. dieted disaster for him, but, notwith standing the time consumed in transit across the Atlantic ocean, the 11,000 telephones were delivered several days ahtad of the contract time. This ex ploit gave Edison a world wide reputa tion, and he soon had more orders than he could till. " The same man who bad charge of this work also made the tirst phono graph. Ed Johnson was in Buffalo lecturing 011 the telephone. He acci dently let fall a remark to the efl'cct that Edison would one day make a talking machine. The audience cheered this announcement, and at the conclusion of the lecture crowded about Johnson and insisted that he should have Edison do so right away and exhibit the machine in Buffalo tirst. This reception rather rattled Johnson, who telegraphed his chief: "You must make the talking machine at once. The people are crazy about it." The next day he re. ceived this laconic reply: ' Come home!' Johnson packed his grip and went to New York. In three days 'hereafter the phonograph was a ma terialized fact. " Edison owed a great deal to John son's business energy and sagacity, and rewarded him generously. John s 11 was sent to Europe, and there ob tained all the foreign patents, and made contracts for the erections of works in every country where the laws required that the manufacturing should be done on native soil. He then returned to this country, selected the most apt and capable among Edi son's pupils and look them to Eu rope, giving to each domain over the territory of a certain nation. " Charley Batchelor likewise con tributed invaluable aid to Edison, and Edison made him a rich man. There is probably no finer mechanical elec trician in the world than Uatchelor. " For many years not one of these men knew exactly how wealthy lie was. Edison, of course, was the great est gainer, but when asked as to the amount of his riches and income, would always reply,' No idea.' At the end of every quarter the men having charge of the various departments sent a check to each of the other partners- No statement accompanied it, and during the existence of this informal copartnership no one ever asked to ex amine the books of another. It was only when outsiders were admitted that this happy family arrangement was interrupted and finally smashed." "What is Edison at work on now?" was asked of Mr. Lewis. " You surely couldn't expect me to tell you even if I knew," was the reply. " I do know generally that he has two or three things, more or less forward ( with which he hopes to round out his career, but even his own mathemati cians cannot guess their nature. Among his minor experiments are some designed to aid in the efficiency, accuracy and speed of signaling at sea. He has already devised a microphone covered metallic tube for whistling steam signals under water, which can be heard, by means of similar appar atus, at a distance of thirty miles. He has also been experimenting with a view of using captive balloons for tele graphiug at sea. This is on the prin ciple of induction. He has already mude a current ' jump' (to speak ex pressively in the absence of a better verb) from the top of one telegraph pole to that of another, a distance of 175 feet. That is, by running wires from telegraph instruments to the top of poles 65 feet high, he was enabled to telegraph from one to the other without a connecting wire. This is the basis of his captive balloon theory. The superiority of water as a conduc tor of sound waves, exemplified in the boy's trick of cracking stones while bathing, suggested the steam whistle scheme. " No, I cannot outline the great things Edison is now incubating. If I knew my fortune would he as good as made." A YOUNG lady Wants to know how to make " not enough" out of the. word "enough." That is easy. Take the 3d, 2d and Ist letters of the word " enough" for the first word and the 6th, 4th and slh for the second word, and yon have something that is " not enough for any young lady."— Colt on wood Rrport.

" Now my friend Mr. So-and-So had entirely different experiences that con verted him," continued the gentle man, rays the Pittsburg Dispatch. " One night, many years ago, he and his family retired. Shortly after mid night lie was awakened by the voice of his dead wife, who said: ' Gas, quick.' He thought it was imagina tion, and laid awake thinking about it for some time. As he was dozing off the voice came again. As he was dozing off the voice came again : ' Gas, quick, quick,' with more imperative ness. 1 Well,' thought my friend, as he sat up in bed, ' that surely was my wife's voice, but I was just dozing off to sleep and I may imagined it. I will stay awake now so that'—just then the voice came agaiu with greater sternness, saying in an imper ative way: ' Gas, quick, quick, quick !, My friend waited no longer, but jumped from his bed and rushed to the rooms on the second floor, where his daugh ters were sleeping. There was no gas there. Down stairs he hurried, looked into the cellar and ail about, but no gas to be found. He suddenly re membered a newly arrived Swede girl who had came that day to do house work, who was sleeping on the third Hoor. Up stairs he sprung with a bound, and as he neared the door he detected the gas. He broke into the room and found it filled with gas. In the stillness he could hear the heavy, labored breathing of the girl on the bed. He saw no time was to be lost. Down on his knees he got, and, keep ing his face as close to the floor as possible, he crawled to the window, which he opened. He then reached for the girl, and, catching her arm which was hanging over the side of the bed, pulled her to the floor and through the open door to the next room, where restoratives were applied. The girl was asphyxiated, and in fif teen minutes more would have been dead. It took several days for her to recover. She tried the old experiment of blowing out the gas with almost fatal results. My friends tells me that frequently in times of danger the warning voice of his wife comes to his rescue." ■ — ♦ Ingeraoll Taken Dawn. One cheerless, rainy night the ven erable Simon Cameron was sitting in the office of the Ebbit house, gazing out through the window into the fog and darkness, says the Chicago Record. He was lost in thought and his face was the picture of melancholy. Pres ently Colonel lugersoll entered. " What has happened, General?" he asked. " You look as if you'd lost your Inst friend." " Ah, Bob," said the old man with a sigh, " I have just seen a cruel, pitia ble sight. An aged and crippled sol dier was painfully toiling up the street yonder, and was making some pro gress, when along came a big, double fitted, I road-shouldered fellow and kic ;ed the crutches out from under the old cripple, leaving him feeble and helpless, to pick himself up as best he could." "I would that I had been there!" cried lugersoll, angrily. " I would have trounced the ruffian! I never heard of so brutal an outrage! What, abuse an old and crippled man like that! I'd make quick work of the brute!" " Wait a moment, Bob," interrupted old Simon Cameron, gently. " I was that aged and crippled veteran, and I was toiling along to my grave. And it was you, Bob, who came across my path and kicked from under me the crutches that supported me in that last journey." Colonel Ingersoll made no answer; the old man continued to look mourn fully out into the night. Tbc lie •( "Will" and "Shall." Sew York Tiinea. There is probably no more confusing part of the English lauguage than that which regulates the proper use of "shall" and "will." The reply of James Russell Lowell to the woman who wrote, saying, " I would lie very much obliged for your autograph," has been oiten in print, and has undoubt edly been clipped for scrap and pocket book reference by many persons. The poet essayist granted her request in the following fashion: " Pray, do not say hereafter, ' I would be obliged.' If you would be obliged, be obliged and be done with it. Say,' I should be obliged,' and oblige, yours truly, James Russell Lowell." An additional hint to go with this " cut me out" is that of the old verse: In the first person simply shall foretells ; In will a threat or else * promine dwell ; Shall lu the second or the third doth threats Will dimply then foretells the future feat. Or " shall" in the first and " will" in the second and third persons are to be regarded as simple declarations, and both in all other cases convey a threat. THE County Auditor's assessment of taxable property in Pierce county for the year 1893, gives a total property valuation of $40,801,802, as compared with $43,028,028 last year, an increase of $1,572,274. The rolls show real es tate valuations and improvements to reach $40,382,543, as against $39,449,- 478 last year, and the value of per sonal property has increased front $5,518,048 in 1892 to $0,218,759 this year. Taeoma city real estate and improvements were figured at a valua tion of $28,445,870; Puyallup, $1,232,- 282; Steilacoom, $232,408; Summer, $190,524; Orting, $109,278; Buckley, $102,871. This assessment will hold for two years, and applies to city as well as county taxes, as the County Assessor and Treasurer under the Stnte law are also the City Assessor and City Treasurer respectively.

BAD FOR UNCLE SAM The Uerlug Sea Declnlan not En* tlrelr the Right Thing. Secretary Gresham is said to be dis satisfied with the findings of the Bering sea tribunal in regard to the regulations established and it is un derstood that his views are shared by other cabinet officers. The regula tions arc interpreted to mean that the United States will have entailed on them the cost and worry of patrolling Bering sea without benefit to its seal ers, while Russia, Japan and perhaps other nations reap a harvest, the regu lations being binding only on Great Britain and on this country. It is not likely that any definite policy re specting the guardianship of the sea will be outlined until the opening of the first season next year, because bad weather will put an end to the opera tion of the sealers in about two weeks. The restrictions placed on sealers with reference to firearms, nets, explosives and steam vessels will have the ef fect, it is believed, of causing Cana dian sealers to resort to desperate methods to secure good catches, and much poaching is feared. In the close season during the months of May, June and July, both Great Britain and the United States will be obliged to maintain a fleet of naval vessels to keep poachers from the sealing waters, and it is believed at the Navy Depart ment that this will result in the estab lishment of a permanent Bering sea squadron for duty (luring the three months named. The United States will also be obliged to maintain a watch on the waters within the sixty mile zone around the Pribyloff islands during the entire mild season from the Ist of April to the Ist of Septem ber, and it is probable that this duly will be discharged by vessels of the revenue marine service. Ax EXCELLENT MEANS OF RETRENCH ING EXPENSE. —In Clark county, Kan sas, so says a special telegram sent out from Topeka, where hard times prevail and hops have failed this year, the religious people of all denomina tions are getting together and dis charging all but one minister in the interest of economy. At Ashland, the county seat, seven denominations combined and took a vote on the most popular of tho seven miuisters who should preach the gospel to the people, eschewing all doctrinal topics. Rev. Melleck, of the Methodist church, was elected, and the other six dis charged. The unsuccessful were not soured, and accepted their fate, know ing that there was support for but one minister. The plan is satisfactory, and will be adopted in other counties in the drought district. FRANK Haywood, mail-carrier be tween Tildon and Cora, in Lewis coun ty, was fired on from ambush by some unknown person. The bullet struck his forehead, but glanced off, and Heywood escaped. The purpose of his assailant is believed to have been robbery. THE WIZARD WEARY AT LEAST OF INVENTIONS THAT ARE NOT PROTECTED. He In Now at Work on Hie Kinelo. graph, and Ulves Considerable Atleiillon lo .Metallurgy -He Can Make Rubies al S.i Per Pound. Tlios. A. Edison was at tlie World's Fair, last week, and was made the subject of an interview, from which we extract as follows: I arrived in in Chicago Monday night," ho said. " I came in <]uietly, not wishing to let any one know of my arrival. When 1 was in Paris in 1889 I was awfully bored. There is always a lot of people who want to show me something I do not want to see. For the last twenty years I have been making exhibitions at fairs. I have displayed my inven tions in Cape Town, liio Janeiro, Tu rin, Natal, Kussia, France, Germany, Cincinnati, New Orleans, London and every place that has ever boasted of an exposition. " I have made no show at the World's Fair. I originally intended to and worked on the kiuctograph, an entirely new thing, day and night for a long lime. My chief assistant was taken ill, and the work fell on me so heavily that I finally determined to save myself, even if I made no exhibit. I needed rest this year and determined to see the big show at my ease. So far I have succeeded very well. I have not been within ten feet of any portal of the Electricity Building, and have no intention of going there. The first place I went to was the Mines and Mining building. I have given up experimenting in electricity, and my whole time is now devoted to metallurgy. Not that I think that electricity is exhausted as a source of invention ; no, not by any means, but I am not going to have anything to do again with anything that I have to gel a patent on. " There id no protection for an in ventor in the courts of the United States. That is why I have given up electricity. For twenty yeare I have been fighting for thirty or forty patents I own, in all these I have been sustained in but two. The rest will probably be sustained ten or fif teen years after the patent right ex pires. It is not that the patent laws are not all right. It is because prac tice in the courts is such that an in ventor can get no satisfaction except by sheer accident. " For a long time I tried to obtain electricity from coal. I got very good 'esults for a while, and felt very much satisfied. I saw, however, that it would require several more years of experiment and gave it up. I have since devoted my time to metals. When a way is found to get electricity direct from coal, that time will mark a new era in the advancement of man kind. " I have a new model phonograph to be brought out in a short while, an innovation entirely new, and on which I am yet putting the finishing touches. "The kinetograph is to the eye what the phonograph is to the ear. By this machine figures can be produced on a screen; every shade of expression and every gesture can be reproduced- To make this machine I had to take forty-six pictures a second. This is equal to the capacity of the eye. Ten or twenty or even thirty pictures a second would show the movements of an arm, for instance, in jerks, but with forty-six photographs u second the arm is seen to rise just as the human eye sees it, and with the same speed. " A combination of photograph and kinetograph, which I shall probably call the photo-kiuelograph, I have also in course of construction. This will show a man's every motion, and the likeness will speak, " I have always used a great many sapphires in the manufacture of phonographs. They are very ex pensive and sometimes very hard to procure at all. I analyzed the chemical composition of the sapphire and finding out what it was started to make sapphires. I now make all I use. I can make rubies for .f 5 a pound that in beauty far exceed the genuine." A TIIFOHY or I.VOI.ITION.

AN APPEAL FOR HELP rood Wauled by (be Mart Ink l»eo pie «f New York. The delegates anil speakers to the Farmers' Alliance and People's Party convention assembled at Sylvan Beach, New York, Saturday, issued the follow ing appeal: " Farmers of the West, a cry of hunger and starvation conies up from the heart of the great city of New York. It is from the throats of tens of thousands who are unemployed It ascends midst the noise of the jingling of gold on the money counters of Wall street. Men are becoming desperate front want, and the gaunt spectre of famine stalks abroad un heeded by those who have grown fat by the ravaging of industry. The lobby approaching the council cham bers of the republic are tilled with paid agents of the oligarchy, ready to debauch the people's representatives. The money sharks unrelenting, the government indifferent and the peo ple desperate by the pangs of hunger; law abiding, honest men are being transformed into reckless wolves and this is the condition desired by the enemies of the people. They starve them in order to furnish an excuse to kill them afterwards. This must not be. The starving poor of New York must not become the prey of design ing enemies. The farmers must feed them. We know you are poor but these men and women are your broth ers and sisters. Their cause it your cause; their starvation and your poverty are the joint production of the community. Send speedily of your products that disorder and blood shed may he averted. Let each presi dent call his alliance and take action. Let each railroad furnish tiasporta tion free. Organize relief committees at once and communicate with Mr. David Rousseau, No. 310 Mott avenue, New York, who has been selected by us as the consignee of relief supplies and who will arrange for their prompt and equitable distribution." This is signed by the delegates and speakers of the Farmers' Alliance and People's Party State Convention. IZAAK WALTON. The Terceutennarjr of (be Angler Celebrate* All Over the WerK. It was in 1G53 that Walton ascended to immortality by the publication of his book. " There is hardly a name in our literature," says the Encyclopedia Brittanica, condescendingly, " even of the first rank, whose fame is more se cure or whose personality is the sub ject of a more devoted oult." True it is that multitudes who have never put a worm on a liook have been caught and securely held by bis picture of the delights of the gentle craft and his easy, leisurely transcript of his own simple, peaceable, lovable and amusing character. All that is mortal of old Isaak reposes in Winchester cathedral beneath a blue stone in the flooring. An inscription cut in it runs: Here Kesteth the Body of Mr. Iztak Walton. Who Died the !9th of December, IMS. Alaa! He'tUone Before, Uone to Returne Koe More. He died at the age of ninety, after having spent the last forty years of his life in traveling, fishing and wo-king at the "Compleat Angler," the first edition of which came out in 1653, re ceiving subsequent editions. It ran through one edition after another aud made its author great in bis own day as well as in ours. Portraits of Wal ton are scattered among the stately homes of England. The three hun dredth anniversary of his was celebrated all over the world on Aug ust 9. EZRA MEEKER ON THE STATE EX HIBIT.—Ezra Meeker severely, and we fear justly, criticises the management of the State building and exhibit at the World's Fair, charging inefficiency, extravagance and inapproprialeness, which has marred the effectiveness of the exhibition. Of course it will be charged that Meeker is disgruntled on account of the impolite treatment he received at the hands of the poli ticians of the board, early in its his tory ; but it cannot be denied that he is a competent critic, and few who know him will charge him with feel ings of malice or jealously in his crjti cisms. His views of Washington's ex hibit, as it appears, agree with those of other disinterested judges, and as to the charge of extravagant management of the State appropriations, it has not been disputed. In the hands of an ex perienced and practical man like E/.ra Meeker, a better exhibit would have been made with one-half the money that has been spent than the present show. MRS. Alice Houghton returned lately from a trip t>> Tacoma in the interest of the World's Fair, says the Review. Speaking of the dissensions among the lady managers of the World's Fair, both national and State, she said: " It has set the cause of fe male suffrage hack at least 20 years, as the whole world has had an example of what women do when put in places of authority."
