the exercises to begin when suddenly, he
fell, backward and " without a groan died
This .sudderi appearance .of death in their
midst caused the utmost consternatibi:
among those present. Women shrieked,
and men rushed about in the wildest eir
citement, while the children set up a wall
at the thought that Santa Claus would
not appearv ' ; , / .; . . '. -Z-
r The v ambulance-; was -called only :„ to ;be
ordered back by some one, who realized
that it was a matter for the consideration'
of- the Coroner, who .. was summoned.

once that death was due to natural
causes, ordered the body to be'sent home.
Johnson was a ; married man; about 40
years -of age, and kept an eating house
at No. 91S east- Cary street. / '".

Tells; Dispatch .Correspon
dent What Ma^be Ac^
complished This Year.
NEW YORK, December 31.— (Special.)—
Thomas; A. Edison, : . the . gr6at inventor,
made the following statement to the Pis-
patch- correspondent to-day: '. ". '
"I look •' for Va; wonderful year. There is
more activity ■ in ; science than there has
ever been before, more men are working
on big problems, ; and great discoveries
would be only natural. •
"For myself, my -storage battery, on
which I have, worked- for /four, years.
will be. put on the market;; in -r January.
It ■ solves the traction problem, and its
introduction- means tho horse will have
to'go.'-'-' ■ . ' •"= -?: '' ;'; ' ■ ' - ' .
"I expect to give up practical-Inven
tion for two years. lam going. to experi
ment— going ■to delve - into some problems
that I : have ''put [by ■'■ for .''ah idle, time, and,
for once, am going to work without; hav
ing, the production of a- commercial com
modity in view. ' ' ' ;
"I am going into the byways of science.
I prefer not to say what my experiments
will be. ; Yes. trying to get electricity
direct from coal is -one of them. ";'
"Wireless telegraphy I assuredly, expect
to see perfected for commercial purposes—
if. not; fully, so in».1903,-at least advaciced
toward that end: The right /kind of a
man is working on it, a practical man, an
earnest mari, and I have confidence in
him: : ■■':■- : ■. ■ ■
"I amnot interested in the flying.ma
chine. I could never see any commercial
use : for it. I have never;. had time to
read much about it. _- '
VI expect, tor see electricity, supplant
steam as a motive power. In fifteen. years
electricity will be; the railway motive
power— lso3 will" advarice it in that di
rection., . M'.-fL ; . ;
"Nineteen- hundred arid three will bring
great advances in surgery, in "- the study
of bacteria, in knowledge "of . the cause
and prevention of diseases. . ;. ..
-•."Medicine, is played but. Every new dis
covery of bacteria shows us. all more con
vincingly "that :.we nave been wrong anu
that a miillbrrtons of stuff we have taken
was all useless.- - ..:- : ' .- '
"'j-hey may. even discover the germ 01
old age. I don't : predict it, but it : might
be by. the; sacrifice 'of ariimal life that
human' life could 1 be 'prolonged/ r
: "The doctor iof the /future will ? give no
medicine, but will. instruct his patient
in; the care of the human frame, in diet,
and in the cause and prevention of dis
;eases^-;'' "■/, ;' , : -- : ':;, \ -• •■... - •':■ '.
.'.The great problems of theyear, arc th p
problems of fighting, bacteria, -of getting
electricity direct from .coal, of . gettinfc
powers" from ;the elements' cheaply, ; and
in imany!uses of electricity in manufac
tures. / ..- "■:•- ;/■ ■- :. /' ■ ■ . ■
"Newspapers are/ among the. great
agents K . that will 'grow better in 1903 : arid
in, the j'ears to; come. They are thegreat
school. •: They ;afe getting better, they art
printing more science, and .'.paying rnort
attention to things that benefit and im
prove .^humanity.. ■. , : •
■ "There will .-'.bee few more- wars. The
world : seems to be- tending to peace. Wt
should have a -great navy, one ; thre(
times as large as at present— hot to. fight,

equal the % fortunes, made in - oil Itself
would be. the transportation of oil. I
loked over Mr. Knapp's plan • and dis
covered that hi 3 -vessel would be L.*e
best oil carrier afloat. Applications wore
made for patents of the. tubular vessel
in •eighteen, different countrya and I
undertook to, orgarilze a company, : now
known as the Canadian. Tubular Steam
ship Oil Transportation Company. At
this time I ; met Mr. , Samuel Harris, who
had : his ' oflice in \ the Temple Bailding,
Montreal, conducting a'-.'-bu'siness • known
as the* Home Remedy Company, employ
ing a large staff of ' hands, and seemingly
doing a large business. In the course of
conversation with Mr. Harris, ' he gave
me to understand that he had the promo
tion of cofnpanies down to his fingers 1
ends, that he was possessed of consider
able capital, and had; unlimited, credit
with newspaper ;. men throughout tne
United States. That an uncle of his who
was a = millionaire of the same name as
his own would also be of considerable
assistance tome. : •
Accepted the Money.
On the strength of these statements
I accepted from him the sum of $lti9 and
agreed- to give him 155.000^ shares out of
ray own j stock in a company that was to
be subsequently formed. > . .^ ...
I Some two da y3 after the receipt of thla
money fromfMr. Harris, I tendered him
back his money and offered to him $200 in
excess of it. This amount Mr. Harris re
fused. Shortly after this, Mr. Harri3;left
Canada and failed to carry out hi 3 obli
gatioris, to assist me in prosecuting, and
furthering the interests of this company
by advertising and 'giving jme iho benefit
of his general experience a promoter, as
I had previously ; never promoted a Com
pany in my life. ' .- ::..-
A" short time after Mr. Harris left
Canada he wrote me from New York, ask
ing for his \ stock, ■ and requested • that , It
be given to him In certiilcates of four
shares each, which; would have meant the
issuing of $1,i50 certificates to him.
Hefused to Comply. "
I Judged. at that time that Mr. Harris
wanted this stock for. use in one" Of. his
advertising schemes, 1 and that he would
throw ;lt. on ■; the market; to j $he detriment
of those who had invested in the pro
perty, and, even if I had choae at (hat
date to give him his stock, it would have
been, unfair \ to ; the ; rest of; tha company,
as the, I,ooo,o.oo. shares. given to Mr- Knapp
to' be divided among those; who had assist
ed .' him in * his early experiments, which
finally , produced trie ;: tubular ■ ves
sel, were still -in the certificate -stock book,
arid all those having claim to same, wnicii
number some sixty; odd gentlemen In
Mbritreal. were -thoroughly satisfied to
consider this stock*;; pooled until, such
time as, in the Interest of th.c company, it
was' deemed advisable to issue to them

THE /METHODISTS. ■
Tha Methodists congregations of the

services." as they are called, the, cmircnes
of the western half of the city joining
in the service at Centenary ichurch. ami
those of the eastern portion of the city
in a [great; meeting at t..e .Union .-Station
church.- Large congregations attended
both services, and both were marked by
a devotional spirit and .by great fervor.
Penitence expressed for the sins of
omission and commission In tha past
and forgiveness asjied. together with
strength to avoid a repetition of thera in
the future. New zeal in the work of tho
church was .pledged, old estrangements
were healed and the fire of love rcjvn»».i<Ml
on the heart's altar. Both the service's
