We republish the following from recent number of the Springfield Kepubli can which seems to contain some wise suggestions; The killing of Georrc H. Bradford, well-known voune Bnstoninn. bv 1 electric car at Boston, serves to exhibit the dangers of rapid transit on our high wnvs. Mr. Bradford was riilinrr hi. spirited horse toward Brooklinc when the animal became frightened at the escii)e of steam from a pile-driver engine neiir tne street, piuncca to tne left nnd landed just in front of an electric car on the down grade. There wns no time tn check the car, nnd horse nnd man were run down, the brute being badly cut up, while the rider's neck was broken.

ELECTRIC ROADS AMD CARS, 11,000,000 Contract for soo Mllea of Road and aoo Cans. As illustrating the wonderful growth of a new business we publish the follow ing clipping from the New York Times 01 Thursday, February 20: I hat is perhaps the luticrit contract ever entered mtolorthecquininentof any street rail way system which was signed n the oflice of the Spraguc Electric Railway and Motor company, at 18 Broml street, yesterday morning bv lohn Muir. pen. end manager of that corporation, and Thomas lowry, president of the Minne apolis and St. I'aul rail wny system. The agreement covers the equipment of 200 miles of road, the supplying of 200 cars with their motors, and, in fnet, a com plete titling out of Minneapolis. St. Paul. nnd the strip of road between the cities nn the hprngue plan. The amount ol money to be paid nn tins initial eiiino- ment alone is $2,000,000, und in order to enter into the contract the Minticnp- is and ht. i'aul system discards its old 'nble plants and countermands orders for cable equipment to the amount of lIHl.tlllll, The Edison ns well as the Siirnuuc nut ans arc used by Mr. Muir'i company. An overhead wire carries a continuous current of Ironi 400 to 000 volts. A big ynanio 111 u single station furnishes the main current. I nder belisnn patents, however, this is reinforced b stations long the line, which serve the purpose of relay bnttc ies. It is claimed a Siecd of twenty-live miles per hour can be ob tained if desirable, and that by the use of 1 11c reversed motors as a counter, lour cars cun lie stipH'd within a lew feet ituout urakes. The question of danger from the cur rent wus one which attracted Mr. Uiw- ry's attention first, and he was even tually satisfied that it ottered nn iuiiedi mcut to the successful operation ol the system. Mr. Edison regards it as ill icitly safe. This is the same srsteinthAt is in opera tion here and of which our townsman lohn II. Barnard is ngeul for n large uiitnrrn territory.

THAT RUSSIAN HORROR rlRTHFR DETAILS OF THE OUTRAGES. inaaanie Hliclda Killed for Fro lectins; Her Honor Three Wo. men Commit suicide and Thirty men Attempt it, London, February 22. Further de. February 22. Further tails of the outrage in the political prison nt Korn reached the Russian exiles in London to-dny Irom friends who are In. cnted a short distance from the scene of horror. They nre briet, but conclusive, confirming fully the report of the affair received nere trom an otticinl in St. Pet ersburg, who is in sympathy with the cause of the people. According to de tails received to-day it appears that the iron uie originated in a "hunger strike in August, when the women noliiicn prisoners tried to starve themselves to death to escnoe the brutalities of their jnilcrs. All the women imprisoned there nnstained from food for fourteen dnvs. The jailers did not lielieve they would' be auie to keep up the struggle. At first they jeered nt the women, then tenmterl them with food ; and then finding this of no avail, threatened them. When srv. ernl of the women were nt the point of nenin irom tncir voluntary abstinence r.. t. 1 a- r , . . noil mini, me prison oniciuis resorted to artificial means to compel them to tnke nourishment. The method! adopted however, were violent nnd lieeii' tious, and the women were compelled to auunann tncir strike. Abominable out rages followed nnd were of daily and hourly occurrence. This state of 'n(W led Madame Sigma, whose death by flogging hns already been announced, to ask lor an interview wilh the director of the prison in hope ofsecuring nn amelio. rnt'on of the condition of the prisoners. Tins request wns granted ; but whea she wns 1 a sen Dciore mm sue lound him abusive. It is said that in her exaspera lion at his abuse, she called him n vil. lain, and slnpied his face. It is not positively known, however, what took place during the interview; but whatever (lid imp)cn Madame Sigulu did not return to her companions. She wns taken from llie directors olhce nnd conveyed .0 the prison 111 which common offenders nre confined. Three ol her companions from among thcuolitie-al prisoners were permitted lo join her. Ad. vices received 10-11 a T stnte tluil tliese were Mnry Koalrskv. wife of Prof. Kon- lesky, of Kicff; Madame llunruitsky and Maria Knhiiuy. The last two ladies were irom Udrssu. Two months elunscd after these events before Adjutant Baron Korcfl'. governor general 01 tne province ot Amour, in structed the directors of prisons that the secret edict of March. 1888. which ordered that political prisoners should be in-mru uy pnaun uniciais in precisely tne same manner ns criminals condemned for common law offences, would be enforced, and ordered the directors to notify the political prisoners of both sexes that they would be liable to coriorrnl punishment if they violated certain of the orison rec- utntions. The mnle prisoners, foreseeing immediate danger, held n consultation nnd sent the director of the prison a peti tion that he would telegraph to the min ister of interior nt St. Petersburg, re questing him tn susicnd the application of the edict. The director refused to pay any attention to their petition, mid hereupon the men warned him that the hrst flogging of a political prisoner would be the sienul for theotherstoeom- mit suicide together. Three dnvs after- vards Hnron KourT sent a special order hat Madame Sigidn be Diiiiishcd accord ing tn the regulations, und the order was executed to the fullest extent. Madame Sigidn was stripped and received 100 Inshes. She wns carried off bleed ing a ml in nn unconscious condition nnd her death ensued from rupture of the heart. Her three companions commuted suicide ilhin an hour after thetime ol Madntnc Sigidn's death.

Since the secret rhnnnel nf information hns been rroiened it hns licen learned that the men carried nut their threat of suicide. They met together nnd thirty of tluai shared what poison they could obtain and tlien went to their cells to die. The quantity of poison which had been smug gled into the prison was not sufficient to kill quickly; but in the course of the even ing two of those who had shared it Bnbnskon and Kolujuy died. Their convulsions and the dead silence which reigned in the oilier cells aroused the at tention of the guards; nnd thry immedi ately summoned physicians, who admin istered emrtics to tne survivors nnd en deavored by every means to counteract the effects of the poison.
