■ome Account or Ilo Invention anti Pro«,
•nt State of Development*
In accordance with our promise of yester
regarding tire progress and origin of that
wonderful invention, and from him learned
some facts of general interest. It would ap
pear that while Edison bas been doing all the
blowing, Brush lias been quietly selling his
lights and running them successfully. Until
now over 0,000 are in actual use. Although
the invention is scarcely more than two years
old, Mr. Brush, who Is hut 30 years old, has
realized a handsome fortune of nearly half a
million dollars from his genius and inventive
"In the year 1832," said Mr. Kuthrauff,
"Faraday, the illustrious English philosopher
and scientist, announced that he had discov
ered what lias since been called magnetic in
duction, or the induction of a current of
electricity in a coil of wire brought near a
permanent magnet and the phenomena at
tendant thereupon. The announcement cre
ated Rieat interest in the scientific world, and
almost immediately instruments and ma
chines were made by electricians and others
to test and utilize the newly discovered facts
aud laws. Among these early and very crude
machines may be named those of Clarke,
Nollet, Holmes, Wilde, Ladd and others.
These were all imperfect machines, and it
was not until quite recently thaï very mate
rial progress was made in perfecting apparat
us that should fairly represent the value of
The Gramme (French) and Siemens (Anglo
German) are types of machines much more
successful than any of their predecessors, but
when Mr. Brush entered the field with his
machine in 1876—after forty-four years of
experience and research by others—there was
no machine known, either here or abroad,
that was in any respect a practical or com
mercial success. No machine was then
known that would furnish a current for a
number of lamps and permit of their being
burned in one circuit with steadiness and
uniformity. Very soon after Mr. Brusli en
tered the field, lie presented to the public an
apparatus which was entirely clear from the
defects of all other systems, aud, as the pub
lic were waiting for just such an apparatus,
they welcomed the new comer, and the result
is that to-day the Brush electric light
is practically the sole occupant of the field,
for at least forty-nine out of every fifty lights
that have been sold in this country are Brush
lights. At this date 6,000 Brush lights have
been sold for regular industrial use, and the
business lias only just opened. An idea of
tlie great superiority of the Brush system of
lighting mav be obtained from the fact that
witli the largest sized Brush machine power
ful electric lights are burned in one circuit,
with an absorption in the machine of less
than 34 horse power."
Among the many advantages of the light,
it may be stated that it is reliable, pleasant,
bealtliy and white. Its safe character is
universally admitted. The accidental fires
which so often occur in factories and mills,
and which so frequently are traced to tlie
careless use of matches, to explosions of oil
lamps, to leaks from defective gas pipes, to
flaring and wind-blown gas flames, and to
similar causes, may be expected to disappear
at the approacli of electric light, with its
harmless copper wires, conveying currents of
electricity to the non-explosive and almost
non-combustible carbon points. These are
covered in exposed positions by the glass
globe, which may, if desired, be air tight, and
thus positively prevent explosive gasses or
combustible materials from without from
coining into contact with tlie incandescent
carbon points, incapable of communicating
fire to anything not absolutely in contact
with their heated surfaces. The naked hand
may be held within an inch of the spot from
which the immense light, produced by one of
our lamps, is emanating without any danger
of burning it. It radiates far less heat than
an ordinary gas burner, while giving light
equal to an hundred gas burners.
In tlie matter of lighting out-door spaces
great progress has been made. About two
years ago the city of Cleveland adopted it for
lighting tlie park in the center of the city,
aud has been using it since with the greatest
success. Then the city of Montreal adopted
it for lighting the harbor, so that the ships
are now unloaded as well by night as by day.
Last April tlie town of Wabash, Indiana,
secured the lighting ot tlie whole city by
means of four lights of 3,000 candle-power
each from a flag-staff on top of tlie court
house, tlie entire elevation being about 156
feet. Galesburg, Illinois, Akron, Ohio, aud
several other eastern towns, and last weekOg
deu City, Utah, accepted my proposition for
lighting Ogden for a period of five years at
$3,000 per annum. It is my intentiou to make
a similar proposition to tlie city of Butte, and
also to organize a company here to lurnisli
the lights to stores aud saloons tlie same as
ill shortly he done iu Salt Lake and Ogden,
those two cities. The lights will probably

' The Brush light is meeting with great au
| cess iu Europe. The British 8 u ' erI " l " j "
adopted it and purchased at onetime T -
lights. The English company have over
1,500 of our lights in use, lighting the royal
navy departments, decks, etc.
It will probably take several more days to
get our lights in successful operation at the
Alice works, as each lamp has to be carefully
tested and adjusted before the carbon holders
will work perfectly.
Operations in the Lexington are confined
altogether to tiie stopes in the west 70 foot
level which are yielding 15 tons of ore daily.
It assays high iu silver and carries from $3 to
$15 in gold. Sinking of the new shaft has
not yet been resumed, for, though the engine
is iu position, tlie pump lias not arrived.
In the face of the Colusa east drift, about
850 feet from the bo tom of the shaft, some
large pockets of copper ore assaying as high
as 80 per cent, copper have been struck. The
average value of he produce is higher than
formerly. A small foice suffices to extract
enough to keep the smelter supplied.
The whim for the new shaft on the Ansel
mo has been completed and sinking will be
resumed to-day or ic-morrow.
At the Original tlie 100 foot level is being
extended east and tbe ledge prospected with
good results. The sinking of the mam Jin r
cline continues, with little chauge in the char
actcr and richness of the -edge.
The stopes in the 225 foot west level of the
Gagnon are producing as usual. The ore
carries considerable iron, but is of more than
average value in silver. It is being treated
at the Colorado works.
The 1'ac'fic is being vigoronsly worked.
The breast of ore in the west drift is 10 feet
wide and is producing fiom 20 to 30 tons of
free ore per day.
The Sa'.isbti-y continues to produce from
eight to ten tons of free o:e daily.
In the east drift of the North Star, stop ng
has been commenced on a four-loot body of
rather low grade ore, aud the Clipper mill is
making a very successful run on the product.

THE RATIONAL RUNE.
The Properly Clianscm Hands at *30,000
Several weeks ago it will be remembered, a
party of capitalists from Boston visited Butte
and remained several days. It wasimpossibe
at the time to ascertain the precise natuie of
their mission, but from the fact that a consid
erable portion of their stav was spent in ex,
amining the "lay" of the National mine and in
acquainting themselves with tlie value and ex
tent of the adjoining claims, it was surmised
that the object of their trip was in some way
connected with an enterprise in which the
the National mine figured. After remaining
several days they returned to the east without
making know'u the object of their v'sit.
It is now known that tlie conjei .ure as to
tlieir intention with regard to tlie National
was a correct one, as since their departure
letters have been received iu Butte in which
the object of their visit here is explained.
Their report on the past and prospective fu
ture of the mine was of such a nature that a
syndicate was formed at the Hub and
the negotiations have ended in the purchase
of tlie property. The consideration is stated
to be $50,000.
The season is too far adyauced now to per
mit of tlie importation of the machinery
required to resume tlie development of Hie
mine, as an extensive cave last summer placed
the old workings in such had shape that they
can not he repaired. It is the intention,
therefore, ,o sink a new shaft and to open up
the mine in the best possible stiape.
The National lies west of and adjoins the
famous Gagnon and in the west workings of
the latter mine the vein is of an extent and
richness such as to leaye no doubt of the val
ue of the Boston company's property. Miller

Lite of Peter Hume.
About one o'clock on Friday night a po
liceman found a man lying in tlie road be
tween Taylor's saloon and tlie Western
brewery. He was apparently fast asleep, but
on being awakened and assisted to his feet
agreed to go home without further de'ay.
The policeman then left him and entered a
saloon. Soon afterwards Dennis Farrel, who
was passing down the street, discovered a
man lying in the snow. He called to his
assistance the policeman above referred to,
who at once identified the prostrate and
almost insensible man as Peter Hume, whom
he had started to his cabin buta few minutes
previous. Owing to the coldness of the
weather and to the large amount of liquor lie
had taken, the unfai-tunate man was unable
to walk, and a job wagon which stood in
front of Todd's was brought into requisitiou
to lake him home. With the assistance of
several gentlemen who knew the old man iu
his flush days, the policeman conveyed him
to his cabin, located a short distance soin h
easl of tlie city, aud put him to bed, where he
was left, as they supposed, in a safe and com
fortable condition. At seven o'clock yester
day morning a messenger was sent down to
see what was required to "mace up" the old
gentleman, but Hie messenger found him
A coroner's jury was called by Judge Bar

deceased came to his death from tlie effects of
iutemperauce and exposure.
Peter Hume lived in Butte many years,
coming here wlieu it was a placer camp. He
was always known as an honest, good-hearted,
industrious man ; but though lie was not
addicted to the constant use of liquor, he in
dulged occasionally to excess.
The committee appointed to make inquiries
relative to the probable cost of building four
plank lined cisterns in Mam street for fire
purposes reported that $400 each was the
Ou motion a committee was appointed to
draw up plans and specifications for the same.
Kesignalion of Alderman O. B. Whit,ford
was read and accepted, and tlie 2nd of De
cember appointed for au election, in the 4th
ward, of his successor.
On motion tlie petition of LeLande &
Ayotte, asking the privilege of running
dance house witliiu the corporate limits, was
taken up and after some discussion referred
to a committee.
Mr. C. O. Ruilirauff, agent of the Brusli
electric light, was introduced, and explained
the operation ot the light in eastern cities,
where it is being used forstreet illumination.
He concluded by making a proposition to
light Butte for $15,000 ior five yea s, divided
as follows : $2,0GG the first year ; $2,500
the second ; $3,090 the third ; $3,500 the
fourth and $4,000 the fifth. Tills division of
thepr.ee is made to anticipate the growth of
the city that is sure to come, and makes the
tax an exceedingly light one to beg'n w ith.
The city would oe given from 30 to 60 days
to decide whether the contract was complied
with, and would not be asked to expend a
dollar iu the experiment. Tlie illumination
promised would equal 1,003 gas lamps. The
council accepted an invitation from Mr. liutu
rauffto visit the Alice works Monday even
