Mr. Edison was recently seen at his
home in Llewellyn Park, Orange, by a
New York World reporter and asked to
tell the story of the experiment which
disabled Dally and came near making
Mr. Edison sightless.
"Don't talk to me about rays," he
said. "I am afraid of them. I stopped
experimenting with them two years
ago, when I came near losing my eye
sight, and Dally, my assistant, prac
tically lost the use of both of his arms,
I am afraid of radium and polonium,
too, and I don't want to monkey with
'Up.to two years ago I was deeply
interested in rays. I used a fluoro
scope which I invented, a pyramidal
box with one open end, the smaller,
and a larger closed end, the covering
being a chemical sheet against which
the object to be examined is placed, the
rays being focused upon it. I was
making experiments in a dark room
that I had constructed in one end of
the laboratory. I was looking for an
improved crystal, and there were daily
results that fascinated me and kept my
eye glued to the fluoroscope virtually
all the time.
I used my left eye, and one day
when I came out of the dark room and
closed my right eye for a moment ev
erything looked double. I hastened to
an oculist, who said that my eye was
something over a foot out of focus.
It is still imperfect, and I do not. think
that it will ever be entirely well.
When I noticed the effect upon my
eye I cautioned Dally. I told him that
there was danger in the continuous use
of the tubes, but he persisted because
he was so enthusiastic upon the sub
ject. The only thing that saved my
eyesight was that I used a very weak
tube, while Dally insisted in using the
most powerful one he could find.
The box of the fluoroscope only par
tially covered his face, so that the light
fell upon his hair and made it fall out—
that is, what was left of it after expos
ing his head to the light in a reckless
way to illustrate its power. Parts of his
hand and arm were also exposed to the
action of the light.
"I am keeping him on the pay roll,
although he is not able to do any work,
and I expect to take care of him as
long as he lives. I have sent.him away

about radium, and I believe it is the

you now that I have abandoned them,

that was fluorescing '12,000 times, and
thought I had my lamp. Then came
the question of practical use. I could
make the lamp all right, but when I did
so I found that it would kill everybody
who would use it continuously.
No, I do not want to know anything
more about rays. In the hands of
experienced operators they are a valu
able adjunct to surgery, locating as
they do objects concealed from view,
and making, for instance, the operation
for appendicitis almost sure. But they
are dangerous, deadly. In the hands
of the inexperienced or even in the
hands of the man who is using them
continuously for experiment. There
are two pretty good object lessons of
this fact to be found in the Oranges."

DIXEY AND WHISTLER.
The Actor Recalls Incidents In Con
nection With Ills "Sitting-"
When Henry E. Dixey was in Lon
don playing "Adonis" he sat for Jamcg
McNeill Whistler, the American artist
who died a tew days ago, and the two
men became rriends. Dixey's recollec
tions of the eccentric painter are inter

"He sent me word one day," said the
actor recently, "that he would like to
come to my dressing room and watch
me make up my face for the imper
sonation I was giving of Henry Irving.
He came and stood behind me, watch
ing th,e process of the transformation
in the mirror. He acted like a delight
ed child all through the operation. With
the addition of every new line and ef
feet he would utter an exclamation of
pleasure and then confront me and ex
amine more closely the counterfeit
countenance. When the task was com
pleled he pronounced the resemblance
'marvelous,' even at close range.
"He invited me to luncheon the next
day and asked me to permit him to
paint me in my white and blue cos
tume. I sent for it, and he stood ine
on a pink mat and before a lavender
background. Then he discarded the
monocle, put on a pair of big specta
cles, and, really, the man underwent a
complete change of manner the mo
ment he began to mix his colors. 1
never saw inspiration so clearly de
picted on a face in my life. He talked
half to himself as he worked.
'Oh, we'll do something fine this
time,' he would say. 'Walt, wait, wait
hold that pose, please. Oh, this will be
all right- you'll see.' When I thought
he had finished my figure at least I
looked at the canvas and found he had
made nothing but the outlines. When
I expressed my surpris.e he explained:
'Ah, my boy, I don't work as many
others do. I commence at the back
ground and work out to my subject.'
After an hour's time his cook sum
moned liim to dinner, but he still paint
ed on. To my surprise the cook, a
healthy, middle aged woman, began
lecturing him in French and actually
took the brush out of his hand and
compelled him to stop. The artist en
dured this just as a child might and
allowed his dominating cook to lead
us to the dining room.
"I sat for him several more times,
but I had to leave England before the
picture was finished. I received letters
from him telling me of tiie progress he
was making, but when I last saw him,
two years ago in London, I was much
disappointed to learn that the portrait
was in Paris.
"I have met a great many famous
men," continued Mr. Dixey, "but I can
recall none so striking in character as
my departed friend Whistler."
MILES AND THE PRESIDENCY
Story of the General's Ambition
liecalled by His Retirement.
Apropos of the retirement of General
Nelson A. Miles from the command of
the United States army, an interview is
recalled which occurred some years
ago, in which the general told a story to
illustrate his attitude on the question
of being a candidate for the presidency.
He was then stationed on a western
frontier, and was approached by the
representative of an eastern paper, who
They say in the east that you are
aiming for the presidency."
Do they?" the general replied
Well, we won't take much time for
an interview on that subject The
thing reminds me of an experience
that a scout had in the old days when
we were fighting the Cheyennes in
1875. That scout was a clubfooted
Frenchman, a plucky, good fellow too,
He had to make his way from Fort
Keough to a cantonment on the Mis
souri, and the Cheyennes were after
him. They pushed him like Satan, and
after a time his horse gave out, and he
had to hoof it. Well, it was a rough,
bad country, and his poor clubfeet
slipped and stumbled and slid so that
his trail must have been something
awful to contemplate. An Indian can
read marks in the ground as well as
you and I can read a book, but they
had never dogged a clubfoot before.
He got into the cantonment all right,
and pretty soon the Cheyennes came
along. They pointed to the trail and
asked our people to look at them. 'We
can't make out which way that fellow
was going,' said they. Now, that's the
case with these people who busy them
selves about me. They don't know any
thing about me, and they can't find
After a pause General Miles turned
his head and spoke a few words ove
his shoulder. "My only ambition is to
command brave men," said he, "and
I've been doing that for thirty years."

THE MORRIS TRIBUNE, gAfURDAY AUGUST 8 !903,
YACHT RACING EXPENSE
What It Costs to Defend the
THOUSANDS IN THE AGGREGATE.
fwhen the Inte rnatlonal Races Are
Sailed the Reliance Will Represent
•bont $450,000-—Constitution and
Columbia, the Trial Yachts, Stand
For $120,000—Defense of the Cup
May Cost $000,000.
Occasional inquiries are made by
(thoughtful citizens regarding the cost
of challenging and defending the
America's cup, but the answers receiv
ed are always unsatisfactory, says the
New York Herald. The conclusion is
that the expense must be enormous,
but "as it is impossible to obtain any
thing like accurate figures the subject
is generally dropped.
On the eve of the international match
of this year it may be interesting to
refer to this important point and at
the same time to place the public in
possession of a few facts that will give
them a good idea of the abiounts of
money that are expended in trying to
capture the old yachting trophy and
in the efforts made by the New York
Yacht club to defend it.
The planning and building of a cup
challenger or defender involve much
time and labor and necessarily the out
lay of large sums of money. The de
signer and his corps of assistants are
the first that must be met. Mr. Fife,
for the challenging parties, and Cap
tain Nat Herreslioff, for the defend
ants, for instance, are men who place
a high value upon their services, and,
as the owners of the yachts are liberal
to a marked degree, opening negotia
tions with a view to the building of a
cup yacht means a fee that in some
other profession would be looked upon
as staggering in its proportions.
With the designer at work the build
ers in time are consulted, and with ar
rangements satisfactory in this wise
materials must be considered, then the
riggers kept in mind, as well as the
sail makers, while finally the skip
pers and crew are secured. Money is
required by all these, and much of it.
Even after a vessel is completed and
placed in commission alterations and
repairs are required frequently at
times, while docking the craft for
cleaning and smoothing purposes
means large additional sums.
The rather startling statement was
made by Sir Thomas Lipton four years
ago that the mere cost of the Sham
rock I. was between $400,000 and $500,
000, while the expense of bringing the
vessel across the ocean and that of her
officers and crew were extra. That
seems a big lot to pay for the vessel,
but Sir Thomas should be the best
authority on the subject of the cost of
If he expended a sum approaching
half a million dollars four years ago
for his challenging yacht the money
the present trip is costing him must be
far in excess of the figures named. The
Lipton fleet now 1 ere is proof of that,
It is easy to believe that the Shamrock
III. cost quite as much to build as the
Shamrock I., and it is quite sure the
bringing over of three crews, those of
the Shamrocks and of the tender
Cruizer, must stand him in a bigger
amount than the single crew of four
years ago and the additional assistance
he obtained in the United States.
So, if $550,000 or more represented
the challenger's outlay the first attempt
he made upon the America's cup, it
can safely be estimated that something
in the neighborhood of $600,000 will be
required to foot the bills at home and
here incidental to his third trial to
win the old trophy.
With the amount that it costs the de
fending side, however, the interest is
more widespread. By the time the
yachts are called to sail the first race
for the cup the Reliance, selected to
defend it, will have cost, one way and
another, $435,000 or more. That is a
staggering amount to contemplate, but
when everything is cleared up at the
end of the season it may be $450,000.
In addition to this sum, there must
be considered that in placing in com
mission the Constitution her running
expenses reached from $65,000 to $70,
000, while the Columbia has cost Mr. J.
Pierpont Morgan $45,000 or possibly
$55,000. These figures will therefore
show that the defense of the cup this
year will approach the very respectable
amount of $575,000 or $600,000.
The building and rigging of the Re
liance cost a fortune. The yacht's con
struction required the best of work
men, while all the standing and run
ning rigging was expressly made, and
her canvas occupied the attention of a
large body of sail makers for months.
The Reliance has possibly a hundred
different sails, and $15,000 or so will
represent the cost of a suit. In this
particular the Constitution and the Co
lumbia have not been so expensive.
The tenders Park City and Satellite
are said to have been purchased by
Mr. E. D. Morgan and Mr. August Bel
mont respectively, but they are valu
able assets and need not be seriously
considered in this financial summary.
The tender Sunbeam is chartered, and
there can be no return from her, but
Sir Thomas' tender Cruizer will be
valuable after the match.
With a crew of about fifty-five on the
Reliance and a crew on the tender Sun-

ance and their own ship as are found
In a good sized city hotel.
All changes in the yacht's fittings, all
alterations or repairs to rigging and
spars, are paid for extra, while the
flocking bills are very large. The
$450,000 or more that the Reliance will
cost must not be included in any way
with the New York Yacht club's ex
penditures in arranging for the races.
The nine men who own the defender
will bear the burden of that vessel's
expenses, but the syndicate does not
meet the personal bills of Mr. Iselin,
the managing owner.
It may cost the club $25,000 or more
to see that the match is properly sailed
and the challenging vessel receives all
that is due her, while the amount in
cidentally expended by the public that
it may witness the races need not now
be thought of.
A MINT FOR MENELEK.
Abyssinian Make His
King Menelek of Abyssinia is getting
along in the world. First he thrashed
the Malidists. Then he drove the Ital
ians out of his kingdom. Then he wel
comed the diplomats of European na
tions. playing one against another.
Now he is to have a mint, says the
New York World. What an advance
this means may be realized from the
fact that Abyssinia until recently has
been getting along with cubes of rock
salt for cash. A small amount of coin
minted in France has of late been in
circulation. Now the king will make
his own. Consul Masterson of Aden
reports that he has saved up 110,230
pounds of gold for the purpose.
There are 400 tons of mint machin
ery. It was sold by a Stettin concern
and was landed at Djibouti, East Af
rica, with a competent mechanic to set
it up. The machinery will be transport
ed by rail to New Harrar, about 150
miles, the end of the road. Thence it
will be transported by caravan to the
capital, Addis Abeba, the caravan jour
ney occupying more than a month.
