VOTING MACHINE EXHIBITED Press the Button and .Your Vote Is - - - Recorded. t - The voting machine, on exhibition in the " corridor la the City hall, is worth a moment's attention trom every voter In the city. It Is unques tionably a great piece of mechanism. In the first place it could not fail to work a great deal of harm to the illit erate voter, and consequently to the party to which he belongs. But the proprietor of the machine, John Mc Tammany, says the law allows an in structor, to stand beside the machine to help out the doubtful voter. There is a wooden slide on the side of the machine for this purpose. To begin, the voter is given all the privacy of the present system of voting. He steps into the booth and stands on a plat form, which drops an iuch or so with his weight. Rows of metal buttons, between which are the names of the candidates on the various tickets, con front him. He then takes his choice or candidates by pressing the button to the right of the row of names. If he votes for mayor on the democratic ticket, for instance, he closes the "mayor" buttons on the other tickets, and so it is with any other candidate. He can vote any way he desires.. When he presses the button a punch perforates a roll of paper, and thus his vote is cast, but isn't recorded until he? steps off the platform, when a bell rings and the vote is recorded. A vote a minute is the record of the machine. There are several signals exposed on the machine which tell whether or not it is working properly. out tue oeu is the loudest one. When all the votes of a districr are cast, the roll of paper is taken off the machine and placed in another machine, box shaped. On this machine each candi date is known by a letter which stands directly in front of a square little hole. The roll being properly attached, a crank is turned and the count of the various candidates skim past the little holes, and the letters which represent their names. The vote of a citv like Waterbury. which ' has about "9,500 votes, can be counted in half an hour. One counting machine would thus sufi fico for a city like this, while the law directs, and this machine has been legalized by the legislature, the pro prietor claims, that one machine shall suffice for every (500 voters. The vot ing machine costs $350 and the count ing machine $250. THIS STRIKE SERIOUS. Miners of Colorado Have Tied Up Business and Caused a Famiue. Denver, Col, Jan 17. As a result of the complete tie-up of the coal mines of this state, due to the strike of the miners, which began several weeks ago in the northern coal fields and gradually extended to all the other districts of Colorado as well as New Mexico, Colorado is on the verge of a coal famine. Mining has been ser iously affected and manufacturing in dustries are threatened with a stop page of business due to inability to secure fuel with which to operate the machinery. The situation is so ser ious that an investigation by a joint ommlttee of the legislature will be made. Both miners and operators de clare that they will fight to a finish and neither show signs of weakness. UNKNOWN VESSEL WRECKED. Victoria, B. C, Jan 17.

Representative Wilcox has decided to limit the' competition for the West Point cadetship to Hawaiians. It is rumored that Mr Wilcox has agreed to appoint the son of Lieutenant Com mander Pond, the acting commandant of the local naval station, to Annap olis. ' . The natives have effected a complete organization of their forces by amal gamation of their two leading organi zations with the independent home rule party, which elected ltobert W.

Naone, one ! should be present. of the most advanced of Hawaiians, is the subject of much comment and an investigation may be ordered. It is I- claimed by many that Naone was either prayed to death or died from the effects of poison administered by a "Kaihuna," or native doctor. Naone incurred the wrath of the natives for accepting a political faith of the whites when the monarchy was abol ished, and it is said that an inquiry will show that he was murdered, al though a white physician attended bin; at intervals during his short ill ness, signed a death certificate, assign ing congestion of the brain as th; cause of Naone's death.

Two Tersons Killed, Several Wounded and a Building Wrecked. Chicago, Jan 17. A special to the ', Tribune from Corbin, Ky, says: As a result of the riot h,ere last night two persons were killed, one mortally wounded, three or four others wounded and a building wrecked by dynamite. The dead: Miss Susan Cox, an in nocent bystander, killed by a stray bullet; Sultan Faris, killed by the ex plosion.

At noon yesterday James Shotwell was shot and mortally wounded by Rolla White, who had become angered with Shotwell on being refused to longer keep company with Shotwell's daughter. White at once went to the store of his brother, where he surrendered to a deputy sheriff. Telegrams were sent to Judge Mor row and a posse was ordered to the scene from the county seat. In the meantime White was barri caded with his friends and the deputy sheriff in the store. When night fell the store was wrecked by dynamite. The sheriff's posse1 arrived at mid night and Rolla White is now in cus tody of the sheriff. PLANT WILL CONTEST. Motion to Dismiss the Case Denied and Witnesses Called. New York, Jan 17-Argument in the Plant will contest was resumed in the supreme court yesterday before Jus tice Leventritt. After the presenta tion of Sirs Plant's case Tuesday by William D. Guthrie of her counsel, Maxwell Evarts, of counsel for the defendant's, argued that the suit should be dismissed on the ground of want of jurisdiction, and because Mrs Plant had appeared in the probate proceeding in Connecticut, in which state alone she' could have any remedy. Lawyer Guthrie replied to Mr Evarts yesterday. " At the con clusion of the arguments. Justice Lev entritt denied the application to dis miss the case, and gave leave to re new at a future time. The taking of testimony was then begun. After several witnesses had testified that Mr Plant's home was in this city, the case went over for a day. . PLEA OF NOT GUILTY. " , .

Leavenworth Hall Was the Scene of Merriment Last Night. " Leavenworth hall was the mecca for all lovers of the fantastic step last evening, the occasion being the nftU grand annual concert and reception by the members of the St Thomas Cadets Athletic association. Magnificent suc cesses, socially and financially, have been the previous concerts and dances of that popular athletic association, but last night's affair far exceeded i them in every way. A more merry or ; jolly crowd could not be gathered un i der the same roof. Every little de- tail which would add to the enjoyment j of those present was carefully attend ed to. I Shortly after 8 o'clock, already a j large number being present, the con I cert was commenced. ' The concert j program, which was an excellent one, consisted of the following selections: March The Graduates Halt Overture Reception Schlep Med ley W h i rl w i nd De W i tt March "Our Nation's Guard .... Brooke Immediately following the conclu sion of the concert by the Eseelsior orchestra, the grand march com menced, in which about seventy-five couples were participants. John Mitchell, president of the society, and Miss Mary Crowky, led it. From that time until an early hour dancing held the floor. The dance program was of such a varied nature as to suit the most fastidious. Professor Pole was the efficient prompter. The committees, to whom the grand success of the event is due, were com posed as follows: Arrangement. J. R. Lawlor, P. J. Riley, P. IT. Kelly, T. J. Courtney and C. F. Stein; floor, J. J.

A petition from the Connecticut state board of trade was introduced in the state legislature yesterday by Senator Bree, asking for an amend ment of the present laws governing the powers of the state railroad eoiu ; missiontrs so that the electric roads I may come within their Jurisdiction, j The petition was as follows: j "We, the undersigned, a committee of the Connecticut state board of ! trade, respectfully petition your hon- orable body to so amend the present ' laws governing the views and the pow- ers of the state railroad commission j ers as to give them the supervision of the location, construction and opera tion of all railroads and tramways in the state which are or which may be operated by other than steam power. Signed: James D. Dewell, T. H. Me Kenzie, William H. Matthews, Henry C. Rowe, Francis Atwater, Zalmon Goodsell." The petition is the culmination of a meeting of the board of trade held ir Bridgeport last October, at which the Peck's Mill trolley accident and others were thorouahlv discussed. James D. I Dewell, in talking about the petition yesterday, said: "This movement is ! an effort to make some arrangements I whereby the responsibility of such ac- -I cidents as the Peck's Mill disaster ! mav be fixed by law. Some provision by which trolley cars would be com pelled to have permanent headlights, which would not be affected by the breaking of the trolley or a loss of power, is another of the objects aimed at. In many cases a loss of power, as some of the cars are now equipped, means the putting out of the head light!' A car in this condition is liable to be run down at night by a car fol lowing, and several becidents of this kind have been narrowly averted, and . . ll TUIUTI iK I in one or io .-ue in.iu.wij - "Provision should also be made by which the passage of the trolley cars through crowded streets should bo rendered less dangerous to the general public. In New Haven and other large cities this duty devolves upon the police to a certain extent, but there are many populous villages which have no such protection." It is understood in this city that an . effort will be made in the legislature towards the appointing of a special trolley commission to have the same power over, the electric railroads as, the railroad commission have ovet those run by steam. .
