Wahiiixuton, November 17.?It is understood
Hmt a Blronj; effort will he made
ftt the euBUlug session of CongrcsH to seemc
a hcuvy rednution of iuternnl revenue taxation.
This Hubject will come before the
Committee oil Ways anil Means if enough
members can lmxotteu together in advance
of the meeting of Con^reBd, but only Incidentally
in connection with the subject of
the revisioft'of the tariff. The Houm 1*111
to reduce Internal taxes, pawed ut (he lust
session, la still on the table of the Senate
unacted upon, although it 1ms been
amended in various particulars. A motion
to take it up promptly will doubtless be
made aud carried without objection yhen
the Semite meets, when other amendments
may be expected to be added to it. It is
not likely to yet into such a shape :is to
receive the concurrence of the Kenubliean
majority, in the House, and for this
reason an attempt may bo mado to
report another bill for the action of
the House. If tie Hepublicaiis, before
they lobo control of the .House,
can pass a measure materially lessen inj:
the weight of taxation, it will, to a material
extent, take Km wind out of the sails of
their Democratic successors. Hut the possibility
that they will be able to pass a
measure of this diameter is quite remote.
Theseesiou will be short and by the time
the appropriation bills aud other necessary
measures are out of the way there \Hlfbe
little or no time left for action on a tax
bill. The peiuliDg bill in the Senate will
provoke animated and extended discission
whenever it comes up, and thcro is no certainty
indeed that linal action will be
taken on it even in that body, Having so
much at stake, however, the Ik-publicans
will stru^ule desperately for action, as, if
taxes aro reduced at the next session, they
will claim and receive all the credit there
mr. xl k? emu uutt iiuuge iveiiey, Uie
chairman of the Ways and Means" Committee,
is disposed to introduce a bill iu
accordance with Iuh often-expressed ideas
to abolish the entire internal revenue system.

Washington*, November 17.?The onus
of the Republican defeat in Colorado is being
piled upon the shoulders of Senator
Hill, llill is one of the weak sort of politicians
like Mitchell, of Pennsylvania, who
have spasmodic outbreaks of independence
and self-reliance which lust for a few daya
and arc not again heard of fur months
after. .
llill got the idea into his head that Senator
Teller was becoming something/of a
boss in Colorado and that he must assert
his independence,. .Senator Teller look no
apparent interest in the nominations, which
were principally of men as old tried an?j true
an uny in the party. Hill, however, made
bis kick, but failed lo get any of his men
nominated. He then began to inonn about
the machine and started a negative warfare
upon the ticket by mild disparagement,
saying that while ho would consider it his
duty to support the ticket, ho grcutly
feared many other Republicans would not,
ot?, Bv his able efforts he succeeded in
taking about three thousand votes from the
KepublLcao ticket, and beat the Republican
candidate for Governor. Tins is what
Secretary Teller means, in bju late iuturviews
when he says disaffection of ftepft})licau
voters beat tbe ticket. Colorado has
never been subservient to nwMno rule in
any way, and Ilill's suspicious mitiojis
bave not only made him ridiculous lit ilio
eve* or bin'fellow citizen8, but have cost
him inueh political strength.

Washington, November 17,?Second
Auditor Reynolds bus returned from Alabnmn,
where he went to vote, lie relates
some very intemthig ?ce?iea occurring at
tho |>olls. lie soys: ily noon the lino of
white vottyH had dwindled away to nothing,
while that of colored voters was full,
and continued bo during u greater portion
o/ the day. Early In (heafternoon a. party
of live or six young white men approached
the table where tho Republican tally lint
whs Kepi unu one 01 uicm accosting the
tally man asked, "What are you dolug this
for?"
"We are keeping a tally of the Republican
voters," was thu reply.
"Will you take my name?" was the next
question,
"Certainly, If you will vote the Republican
ticket."
"Let me see how it is done," said the
Democrat, leaning over the table as If to
scrutinize the work. Immediately he
siezed the papers, which " then
contained the names of more than
six hundred voters, and returning
anions his fellows tore them to pieces
and threw them on the ground. -Mr.
Reynolds, who had witnessed this afl'air,
usk'ed the tally man why ho did not protest
or do somethmu to defend his tally list.
"Of what use?" was the reply. "Didn't
you see those fellows put their hands in
their hip pockets? I saw it meant light
and I should have only lost my life for
nothing."
After the polla closed and while the votes
were being connteu Mr. Reynolds asked
Democrats who were standing about
awaiting the result how many Democratic
votffs they supposed had been cast, The
highest estimate was 1500. Mr. Reynolds,
who had been present during the' whole
day, thought this estimate was about fifty
in exccts of thu truo number. Wheu the
result was declared it was found that 1,200
votes had been cast, the Democratic candidate
receiving 500 majority according to
the returns made by the Democratic
officials who conducted the alleged count.

tho Western Union Telegraph Company
here gay ttie fclectrical disturbances in this
country to-day ure tliu most pronounced

indeed, they'have been paralleled, insomo
respects at any lime. An electrical storm
of the greatest violence ranging in all the
Territory from a point beyond Omalm, and
from Knntus City north totlie terminus of
telegraph communication, practically putting
a atop to telegraph service over the entiro
area. It first begun to bo felt about 1
o'clock this morning, and increased in intensity
till 0:45, when communication
from every direction was cut oft". This electric
storm seemed to go in successive uega
tive and positive waves, alternately
neutralizing the currents on tho
wires or increasing their, intensity, and to
such a degree as to burn everything: up. A
switch-board here bus been on liro a dozen
times during tho forenoon, and a half
dozen kevsot instruments wero melted by
the current, which contiuued to pass
through screws turned up and the poiuts
parted to their furthest limit. Duplex and
quadruplex wires were rendered entirely
useless, and ut noon but a single wire out
of fifteen between this city and N'ew York
was in operation and it was frequently interrupted.
Word bus been received from
Milwaukee that tho atmospheric electricity
coming in on one of its wires from the country
luwl such dynamic power as to suflico
for keeping the electric Jump burning-. All
business at the office hero is subject to

communication has been generally interrupted
to-day by the exceptionally severe

say it is the worst of the kind for many
years. The storm extends throughout the

Canada. The cables are hours behind. It
is showing at Buffalo, Albany and Jloston,
and is several inches deep at the two latter

IIh Application to the .linking of Iron,
Mefl utul Ulan.
St. Loum, November 17.?At ft meeting
of the Manufacturers nnd and ^Miners Association
In this city, a paper submitted by
Mr. "William Wappllngton, of Wheatland,
I Pennsylvania, was read by the Secretary,
on the gas furnace as applied to the manti- i
I facture of iron, steel and glass.
The paper opened by asserting that gas:
' furnaccs are applicable in all awes where
actual contact with the fuel was notneces*
I nary. Among the advantages claimed for
gas heatingares An unlimited amount of
heat, purity and perfect control of the
I flame, the expansion of gases in the heating
1 chamber being a complete check to drafts;
an economy of fuel of from twentyfive
to fifty per cent and a reduction
in the cost of rmnnira. th?
progress of (ho Siemens regenerative
furnace was referred to as not comtneusurato
with its advantages. It has been
generally ignored by manufacturers who
were only too anxious to show a clear gain
at the end of the year inconsiderate of
losses by costly furnaces. Tlio loss or
wasto by oxidation in ordinary heating
furnaccs in western Pennsylvania, Ohio
and West Virginia would aggregate $10,i!S0
per annum for each furnace. Compared
with coal fed furnaccs the Siemens showed
a more striking comparison, iu the manufacture
of iron six bushels of coal per ton
was the savinjjattained iu South Walts. In
production the advantages were cited iu
the liret place as superior welded and
softer piles and general improvement in
the quality of the iron. J?ot tlio least
feature was the facility of preserving iron
from loss by oxidation when rolling 'does
not occur when tlio heat is ready. The
coal llrcd imddlihjf furnace was alluded to
as fruitful of losses in fuel ami iron and
susceptible to a great many improvements.
The Siemens was
tlio most useful improvement,
and although costly It paid for itself, and
proved remunerative where other processes
failed. The cost of production iu the ubo
of fuelstood as$lal (10 against the old fuel
furnace, and a waste of $L 111 on iron. Another
good feature of the iras furnaco was
its fiuster work. The defects of the old
fashioned furnace were pointed out in detail,
and tlio pernicious eflepts of badly
proportioned Ijre chamber were dwelt
upon at large. The gas furnace was recoininendcd
for perfect combuatiou and regeneration,
for bringing hack again and again
using the waste heat. The application oi
gas lurnacos to steel- working was commented
upon, and the saving in the cost of
fuel alone was set down at 93*80 per cent,
and the increase in capacity at 300 percent,
makiug the output tive or six times more
than fifteen years ago.

men, the story was generally discredited by ?
everybody. Ho gave the correspondent $
this history of his life and case: t
"I was born in 1841 in Somerset town- n
ship, Washington county, and have lived ?
here ever since. I professed Christ in the o
Pigeon-creek Baptist church in October,
1858. According to the physicians my ?
trouble was caused by an injury to thu ti
spine, supposed to have lieen caused by h w
fall when I was thirteen years of age. 1 k
lirst noticed the trouble about three yearn si
afterward, but it was not until about live g
years ago that I became unable to work at tl
my trade of carpenter. Throe years ago! tl
was compelled to use crutches. Then, aa 0
I became weaker and my feet gave way, 1 p
walked on my kuees ior about a year, at
Then I ueed a chair in which I could sit T
up, but iny lungs and heart,becoming weak, ci
about 31 year ago I bezlan using the fc
lounge clmir you see out there in
that wagon. About this time my tl
cousin saw some accounts in the si
papers or persons in Erie who had been r<
cured by prayer. My case had been given tl
up by Uie priysiciaus, but my cousin en- n
eoumged mo 10 hope, procured tliu ud? tc
dresses of the pftrticg cured and wrote to
theti} received two letters last fall. My ai
cousin urged me to take juy ease before tho tl
Uord, l>ut I told him I was conformed to \\
the will of Cioil, helicviugtbntnw ailiietiou
was going to prove a Ucgwiaff to the com in u- vi
lilty ami result in extending Christ's king- h
dom. ]le answered: 'Don't thiuk that.
It is only the whisperings of the devil. Go si
to the lard and he will bless you' " w
To show me what tirstled him to hope sj
for a cure of his ailment," ho exhibited a;
several letters whigU jud b(ien received b<
front paitii'd in Nnu. 1 stopped taking tl
medicine si.\[ months ago. My nervous ei
system was so greatly prostrated at times I li;

jut the tide turned to-day and the beajs
ire laughing auij pounding the market in a
rociferous manner. When the session of
be Oil Exchange began this morning there
Viia nothing upon which a prediction could

is experienced yesterday and the day be*
ore, was apprehended. Shortly after 10 1
'clock the report was received that the
Uchor Oil Company bad struck a spouter 1
n Forest county this morning, und thnt it
Ms llowing at the rate of live hundred
larreia a day. mis news came like u thun* i

'ho market, which opened with sales at .

1 22, then St 17, $1 loj, and finally, wlien
be.- bell rana . at .the close of the
lornlng session, the last few wales
,-ore rondo at $1 111 J, a drop of .
ver twelve cents from the opening pricc.
The news o( the crash spread quickly I
nd soon the lobby was blocked with spec- (
itors and transient speculators. There ?
as also a scatter to cover, and as the iuar- j
ct kept swooning down,and murgiusgrew j
mailer and beautifully less, the lauibs '
rew more restive, and' no doubt many of .
3Cin vowed that if they were out of this J
joy would not trillo with lickle oil again. (
there smiled a sickly smile and refused to |
lace any credence in the reported heavy \
rlke, and said: "Oh, that is only a ruse. f
hoy want to force the price down so they \
an load for a boom, which must surely
>llow.
A number of brokers gpokeu to were of
io opinion a reaction would follow in a j
lort time. While a welt such as this was
iported would, of course, seriously affect 1
le market for a time it would not be per- t
muent, an it did not open up any new 1

The period of rest between the two scs?

from the shock sustained by tho big
