satisfaction of Mr. ]?oekel lliu true inwqrdiwm
of the inyKterious motor, which has
absorbed n few fortunes in its development.
Mr. lioekel said to 11 reporter last night that
he l?a?l heen spending as much time na he
could wpare for **ceks past in Mr. Keely'a
, workshop. "My inveatiKatiouH thus far,"
, wiid Mr. Itoeke), "have given me a the

i 1ms cheerfully explained the working of
f the motor, and hns performed some wonder

thoroughly convinced of its practical work,

? a similar engine and put it in successful

1 "When will Mr.' Keely commence the
. construction of this engine?" queried the
, reporter.
' "J ust as soon as the company gives ldm
1 the monev," replied Mr. iloekel, wjth a
t smile. "lie metis cash to do the work,

advise your friends to invest more money."
t "No;"I would allow them to use their
I own judgment. They could do as I did
i when 1 bought Keely motor'stock. If the
, motor proved a success I made up my
- mind to be satistied.and if it was u failure
I intended to be satisfied anyhow."
Counsellor Collier, the attorney for the
Keely Motor Company, yesterday filed Mr.
Hoekel's report in the I'rothonotary's
oliice. It is, as Mr. Koekel said to the rei
porter, simply a report of progress. The
v. report is as follows:

i- upon and from time to time since the entry
ot such order the said Keely lias by elaborate

e particularly that termed his "generator,"

Hesitatingly report to the court as follows,
20 to-wit:
uo First?That the defendant Keelv has discovered
a new force or motive power.
.Second?That the force or substance
evolved by him through the instrumentality
j. of his structure?designed by turn under
the varying nomenclature of "vaporie
n force," "etherie force," and approximate
ic designations?possesses properties peculiar
i- to itself and wholly phenomenal in character,
differing essentially in many particulars
from those of compressed air or other gases,
and requiring special machinery for its
u proper utilization.
in view of the facts last above stated it
may not appear unreasonable thjit tlie sub-1
ject, involving as it does the study "and ap-1
e* plication of vibratory forces, is one requiri>f
mg time, patience and the closest attention,
both on the part of the inventor and investigator,
to enable the one to perfect Its
1 utilization or the other to give such tfcehniie
cal descriptions thereof as to meet the
fo requirements of the law as the condition of
lv obtaining valid letters patent.
While .Mr. Keely, in the opinion of the
undersigned, has so far perfected his invention?both
in the facility of jrenerating
r. said force as well jus in the direction of tjtiler
izing or applying the Eauie for the propulg,
sion of machinery?as to entitle him to
ir- letters patent, yet your ollicer does not at
the present time j>pssess that intimate deje
gree of knowledge of tho entire subject to
? make it expedient in his judgment to ree.
commend to the Court that the Court
in should now order such application to be
id made as irf prayed for jn complainant's
re pill; nor will he assume f>o to advise (it, p,s
?y is believed, advice be within the scope of

St. Louis, August 25.?-The CUol><-Democrat
referring to the action of the State
Committee yesterday, says, editorially, this
morning: The ]|opublicap State Qentfal
Committee of Missouri, to all intents and
purpose*, departed this life yesterday. Its
usefulness is as completely gone as th#t of
an old-fashioped, broken l}ank flotp. By!
its unwarranted assumption in -presuming
to exert a power that was never granted to
it, it forfeited its right to exiHt, and
its mandates will henceforth be
heeded by the Republican masses
in the *StaU-| no more than if
they were so much waste paper. The
foreknowledge of the cut-and-dried action
of tlip Coin?nittee was sufficient, of itself
to start a strong and overvlielmiji^ movement
in the party toward the holding of a
Copyention, and it was only kept in check
to give the Committee a chance \o estabr
lisli its loyalty, and to render untenable
any possible charge of inconsiderntencfe,
Now that the Commltteo haa seen fit to
throw away that chance, the delayed preparations
for the convention will go on with
due celerity, and that the convention will
be carried but successfully no one who understands
the present temper of the vast
majority of Republicans in the Stato can
doubt ' '

Hritisu Lakh, August 25.?'There was a
funny scene on the beach yesterday. An
efllgy of Oncar Wilde swuntf from the top
of the lofty j?olo which hears tlio flajjof the
bathing inihiAtry. Oscar, who was lo
lecluro here to-night, was announced m intending
to bathe in the surf at 11 this
morning. This announcement brought an
immense crowd to the beach. Tim people
anticipated a great treat, for comparatively
few of them had ever seen the
much advertised a|>o9tlo* of lesthetlcism
ami nono of them had seen hiuV in the
eiirf. Kleveu o'clock came and pawed and
uic nailing uiiuiik riiun i-w ai^us ui iiibu]**
point in out. .Some blamed t-tocar, others
blamed bin managers and some blamed
themselves for having subjected themselves
to tho risk of being badly sold just
for the sake of gratifying their curiosity.
As boon as it was generally known*that
the ustheto had not arrived at tyring take
at all th?% keepers of tho .bathing houses
prepared a stuffed imago of him. They
parted its flowing hair in the middle, robetl
it in a second-best bathing suit with kueO
breeches and fastened a huge sunflower on
its bosom. A pair of corsets ornamented
its chest and waist. It was by no meaus a
handsome figure. Amid great applause
from boys and others they attached this
spurious Oscar to tho rope and ran it up to
the top of the flag-pole, where, with a Japanese
parasol in its hand, it swung and hum:
and swayed back and forth iu the breeze.
They did not treat the elllgy to the indignity
of hanging it by the neck, but placed
the" suspending rope under the arm-pits. Tin?
rwison for tiiisolovation of tho stufT
eil Oscar by the bathing men was that "ho
had gone back on them." It was not
clearly ascertained that the announcement
of Mr*. Wilde's intention to batiie was official,
nor was it clear that-the people had
sutreredanv damage by his not bathing beyond
the disappointment nnd the loss of ,
lime. .Some of the more conservative ones
objected to the proceedings as an unwarranted
indignity. The young people, es- 1
pccially the boys, regarded it as a good
joke. There was no excitement, nor were
any efforts made to tear the effigy down.

At this interview the Pasha on behalf of
the Porte, submitted n new draft for a

the Turkish troops be allowed to land in
Alexandria independently of England, and
be subject entirely to the order of Turkish

that he had been instructed by his government
to signify to England through the

convention in regard to the occupation of
Egypt, providing that Eugland would declare
formally that she was willing to renounce
nil claims to self-advantage from
her present action in Egypt at the close of
hostilities, and that at the end of the war
the British government would submit all
questions relating to tho final solution of
the Egyptian question to the decision of all

skirmishing I took possession of
the dam which the enemy lind
constructed across the. cantil between
the buildings of Magfar aiid Mahnta. During
the operations two fquadrons of the
household cavalry charged the enemy's
broken infantry very gallantly. I soon
found that the enemy were being largely
reinforced from Pel-el-lCcbir. 1 could see
trains arriving. J thought it inconsistent
with tradition for the Queen's army to retire
before any number of Egyptian troons
and 'so decided tQ hold tne
ground until reinforcements arrived
All day long 1 have had an Ivgvptian force
of 10,000 men with two guns in my front
and on my right flank. The precision of
enemy's, artillery fire was very good, but
fortunately they fired cannon shell nearly
all day, and when they did fire shrapnel
their fuses were badly adjusted. The
enepiy had their cavalry regiments in line.
Our horses having been recently on board
of ships were not in condition to gallop
much. The two-horse artillery guns were
served with pluck and ability. Our casualties
have been slight. Captain llalliun

report last night with the kittle still raging, [
and it was after 10 o'clock before the noise
and din of the conllict ceased. After these
had passed away an effort was mado to
count the number that were slain, but it
seeinB to be impossible, as the altar was
crowded and it wag not possible to distinguish
saint from sinner. All sang together
the song of Zion, and all kneeled during
prayer. Elder Kvan took occasion to remark
that if anyone cried failure, in regard
to the meeting, do not now cry excitement;
his faith was now strong enough to
save one thousand souls for Christ.
During the altar service on last evening,
a young lady residing a few miles from
here was among the penitent at the altar.
It was noticed that while wrestling and
pleading tor acceptance, there was a great I
strain on her nerves, and this proved to be
go great that she became wholly uncon-,
ecious oi anyining unit was going on. She |
was taken to a cottage hu<1 placet! on a sofa.
For three hours she was in this condition,
only at intervals she cried, "Glory, Glory.
Glory." The hands were closed and could
not be forced open; the arms could not be
bent, and only for the fact that she would
at intervals cry out, she had the appearance
of one dead. All efforts to arouse
her were simply made in vain.
After the crowd had retired from the
cottage and every thinghad become quiet,
she returned to consciousness, and only
complained of her arms being very tired.
It was very amusing to hoar the number of
plans that were suggested to arouse her.
W'iso counsel prevailed and God and
nature were allowed to take their own
As to the cause of this strange occurrence
I will 'not venture any opinion, leaving

The gathering of the faithful at the tabernacle
this morning was rather slow. The

in waiting for the. people to come, and
when the time arrives to conclude the ?er
vice many'desire to be heard. Again there
seems to be squid that consume more time
than they should to the exclusion of others.
There arc some who have been heard for
their much speaking,'and they are not as
brief as thev might l>e, too much time is
taUqg in relating their past experience;
when they were on the mountain top ami
in the valley; the number of blessings
they have received in the past, and while
these may he very pleasant to talk about
yet they are not very interesting to those
who desire to ?peak for the Master. The
