Informer. Joined the Organization In
Order to Ilctray It to England.
Loxuotr, Not. 14. During the exam'
laation yesterday, at the Bow street po
lice court, of Edward J. Ivory, alias
Edward Bell, the Irish-American
saloon keeper of New York accused of
complicity in a dynamite conspiracy, a
witness who gave his name as "Jones"
appeared, much to Ivory's consterna
tion. "Jones," it is understood, has
for years been identified with the Clan-na-Gael
and other Irish-American or
ganizations, and the prosecution ex
pected that he would unfold the secret
story of the physical force movement.
Replying to questions put by C. F
Gill, who prosecuted for the treasury
department, "Jones" said he was a na
tive of Armagh. and was employed by
tlio British government to make In
quiries at Manchester in 1800, and in
1801 was sent to America, where ho
continued his inquiries. In November,
1391, he entered the employ of whole
sale grocers in New York city and re
mained with them until 1805, when be
opened a business of his own. He re
mained in New York until September
of the present year, all this time mak
ing inquiries for the British govern
Early In 1893 "Jones" said he met
William Lyman, president of the Irish
National alliance, and Holand in New
York city and learned of the exit, "nee
of the Irish Nationalists' organization,
known among its members as tho
' United Irish" or "T. II.," whose ex
ecutive body was known by the letters
'D. A." "On Instructions" he joined
the organization and was initiated into
a "camp" known as "the Shamrock
dub," among those present at his in
itiation being Lyman, Iloland, Galla
gher, Kearney and Tynan. They after
wards "formed" a new "camp," which
was called "The Nally club," the
membership of which included Mearns
and Noland, who had been connected
wi an explosion in Dublin.
"Jones" then produced a document
purporting to give the constitution of
the society up to 18!i5, and also copies
of the constitution . and ritual of the
Olan-na-Gael. Anyone convicted of a
dynamite outrage was described In the
proceedings of the organization as a
"soldier of Ireland."
When Ivory's counsel asked Jones to
givo the Initials of his name, the wit
ness refused, but the counsel insisted,
am', also demanded to know the ad
dress of Jones In New York, whore
upon the witness replied: "I fear for
my safety and decline to give'tho par
The magistrate upheld Jones In his
refusal, and then followed a dramatic

a-sked: "Did you take the oath of the
Upon hearing this question Jones
turned lividly pale, hesitated for a mo

Ivory's counsel thereupon said: "You
were intending, at the time, not to ob
To this question Jones replied: "Yes,
I did not intend to observe it."
Counsel thereupon said: "Have you
any respect for the oath you have given
"Yes," replied Joues, in a weak
This incident caused the deepest im

At tho closo of the proceedings Ivory
was formally committed for trial.

Serf, of Hastings, Neb., quurterback
of tho Doane college eleven, was futally
Injured in tho game between Kansas
and Doane Saturday afternoon. His
death occurred at 11:20 Saturday night
P Serf was a popular member of the
team, and his death cries, which lasted
from the time ho was taken from the
field to the end, were piteous sounds to
his fellow students. For a time in the
evening Serf seemed to rally, but be
tween 10 and 11 o'clock the end came
closer. It was harder for him to
breathe, and he could scarcely be kept
Surrounded by his college mates, he
passed away at 11:20 In tho Eldridge
house, where he was taken after the
game. Serf's injury came from a
tackle of the Kansas fullback, Speaks,
who was carrying the ball across
Doane's line in tho last play of tho
game. Serf was thrown back on his
head and neck and concussion of the
brain followed. It Is not known pos
itively whether the injury was directly
the result of the collision with Speaks,
or whether it was caused by the fall
Early in the game Serf was hurt and
lay on tho ground fully five minutes
unable to play. An appeal was made
to Doane's captain to take him out of
the game, but the team was short of
men, and Serf was permitted to con
tinue. Kerf had also been hurt In
earlier games and seems to have been
in unfit condition for play. He was
only 17 years old.
The game was the last of the season
on the home grounds, and was won by
the Kansas team by the score of 10 to 4.

1 NIAGARA AT WORK.
USEFUL AS WELL AS AWE
Turning Wheels In Buffalo Power Is to
Sell at .Thirty-Six Dollars Per Horse
Power The Greatest . Cataract on
Earth Harnessed by Science.
Buffalo, N. Y, Nov. 10. At mid
night last night the turning
of switch in tho big power
house at Niagara Falls com
pleted a circuit which caused Niagara
river to flow up hill, so ta speak, by re
turning a fraction of its resistless en
ergy, which had already swept past the
gates of Buffalo, back into the city,
twenty-seven miles distant.
The harness f as buckled that hitches
the factory wheels of Buffalo to the
greatest cataract on earth. This morn
ing the street cars of this city moved
by Falls power. Hereafter tho Falls
must work enough to earn their living.
The distance covered by the line be
tween Buffalo and the Falls is twenty
teven miles, and.the.expert electricians
who have the work in charge, estimate
that tho loss of energy will be less
than ten per cent, and may not much
Careful tests are to be made in this
connection, the tests covering both
night and day, and clear as well as
rainy weather, The electricians are
paying particular attention to this
test, as on the perfect. insulation of the
carrying lino depends much of the
luture success oi me unaerxaiung.
The line that has been built to carry
the current-bearing wires is of a most
substantial nature. Unlike the ordi
nary telegraph line, the poles are
placed very close together and arc
braced in such a manner as to be proof
against heavy storms. At curves the
poles are set double, and are guyed to
numerous smaller poles to prevent
The over-head line extends from the
power house at the falls to the city
limits of Buffalo, where the wires
enter cement conduits. On the over
head line glass insulators are found
unequal to the strain, and porcelain
insulators were made especially to hold
The insulators were subjected to a
current of 30,000 volts before being put
in use. There are at present on the
poles eight cables, each with a carry
ing capacity of 5,000 horse power, or
40,000 horse power in all. The poles
are of such a substantial character,
however, that this number of cables
can be doubled without subjecting
them to a greater strain than is con
The only contract made so far for
the delivery of power in Buffalo by tho
power company is that with the .Buf
falo Street Railway company for 1,000
horse power. Under the contract with
the city, the completion of the under
taking of delivering power in Buffalo
was not'obligatory before next June.
It was in order to secure the contract
with the street railway company that
the work was hurried through so far
ahead of time. Contracts with othert,
desiring to use the electrical power
will now be made, and it is thought
that by the opening of spring the
power will be well distributed through
out the city.
Since the inception of the undertak
ing, and during its carrying out, tho
company has frequently called upon
Messrs. Edison and Tesla for advice,
and these famous masters of electricity
have been frequent visitors to the
Niagara Falls power house to solve
technical problems. The power will
sell in Buffalo for 930 a horse power
per annum, and under its contract
with the city the company must in
crease its capacity 10,000 horse power
per year until the maximum of 50,000
horse power has been reached.
A Currency Commission Possible.
Washington, Nov. 14. During tho

some seasons it would be possible to
sail clear through the north pole, on

stated they had cured his wife of sciat

In the current Llttell'g giving Age
ls copied an article by W. S. Lyiy on
"The Theory of the Ludicrous," In
which article the following story Is re
lated: "I think about the most curious man
I over met," said the retired burglar, "I
met In a house in eastern Connecticut,
and I shouldn't know him, either. If I
should meet him again, unless I should
hear him speak. It was so dark where
x mei mm mac l never saw mm at an.
I had looked arjund the house down
stairs, and actually hadn't seen s
thing worth carrying off, and it wasn't
a bad-looking house on the outside,
either. I got upstairs and groped about
a little, and finally turned into a room
that was darker than' Egypt. I hadn't
gone more than three steps in this
room when I heard a man say: "Hello,
"'Hello,' says I.
" 'Who are you?' said the man, 'bur
lar?' "And I said yes, I did do something
In that line occasionally.
'"Miserable business to be in, ain't
It?' said the man. His voice camo from
a bed over in the corner of the room
and I knew he hadn't even sat up.
"And I said: 'Well, I dunno; I've got
to support my family some way.'
" 'Well, you Just wasted a night hero,'
said the man. 'Didn't you see anything
down stairs worth stealing?'
"And I said no, I hadn't.
" 'Well, there's less upstairs,' says the
man and then I heard htm turn over
and settle down to go to sleep again.
I'd like to have gone over there and
kicked him. But I didn't. It was get
ting late and I thought, all things con
sidered, that I might just as well let
him have his sleep ont."
