Pierre, May 16—The question of
issuance of "Citienship Certificates"
on Memorial Day to ail who have
acquired citienship within the state
the past year appears to be to a
large extent "in the air" just at this
lime. The act was passed by the last
legislative session, and under its
provisions each new cltien of the
state who had become such by na
turallatlon or by reaching the ago of
21 years since last. Memorial Day
was to receive an engraved certifi
cate to that effect, such certificates
bearing the signatures of the gover
nor, the secretary of state and the
chairman of the board of commis
sioners of the county in which he
may have secured his citienship.
This is a law enacted through a
bill sponsored by J. O. Wickre, of
Day county, whose aim was to cre
ate a sentiment for better citienship.
The blanks were prepared and the
different counties have made their
requisitions on the secretary of state
for the same, ranging in number
from a doen of the applications to
2,500 asked for by Hutchinson
The publicity give nto this citizen
ship movement reached the federal
naturalization authorities and they
sen! Robert S. Coleman, of St. Paul,
head of the northwest division of la
bor, out to investigate. Mr. Cole
man says he is not able to say what
the federal authorities will hold on
the subject, but he fears that these
certificates may be taken advantage
of to avoid the federal naturaliza
tion laws.
While, as a matter of fact, they
do not confer any rlfht. at the same
time ou their face they state that
the holder is a citizen of the state
and of the United States. At the
name time there is no requirement
in the law as to the party applying,
nor is there any qualifications placed
upon the applicant before he can se
cure the certificate.
All that is required is that on
Memorial Day of each year these
certificates shall be delivered to
those who are entitled to them, and
the matter of title appears to rest
largely with the app licant to say
that he wants sucr a certificate and
that he is entitled to the same.
The whole question has been put
up to the federal attorney general
for his view upon the situation, is
the state officials see no reason why
they should not carry out the pro
visions of the law, unless it can be
shown that by so doing they are in
some way transgressing the federal
statutes in relation to granting citi
zenship to foreign born residents of
the country.
The main worry of the federal
people appears to be that advantage
will be taken of the state certificate
to in some way mislead the unwary
into thinking that they are citizens
and demanding rights as such, when
in fact, they have no such rights ta
any way.

months the wealth of Col. E. A. Hum

a few dol­

He began operating in the Mexia

and he had no more than a "shoe
string" to go on. The other day lie
incorporated into one company all of
his holdings. This new corporation
has a capital of $15,000,000, of which
Colonel Humphreys owns 76% per
cent, The remaining '23per cent is
held by the Pure Oil company In
Resides the oil holdings which Col
onel Humphreys turned into the new
company he has many other large pri

two other companies, the Hutnphreys

merged into the Humphreys Oil com

Wire Relic to Be Preserved.
Portland, Ind.—An oddity is on dis

country and was brought to the audi

northeast of this city. The wire is In
links of a length of three or four
Inches Instead of being one twisted
piece ns the wire is now made. The
antique piece of wire will be placed in
the museum of the courthouse.

Interesting truln of speculation as to
the illumination of the future. Nobody
supposes for an Instunt that our light
ing problems have been solved. Com
pared with what the future will bring
forth the present arrangement of
wires with bulbs that have to be

ficient. Research work at the Massa
chusetts Institute of Technology has
succeeded In producing a light with
out wires that is to say. the incan
descence Is set up by Induction, where
the electric current bridges an inter
val purely by electric energy. To be
sure the light Is only an experiment
and so far is not practical for com
mercial purposes, but the method has
The Test,
The research division of the depart
ment of electrical engineering experi
ments with a tube filled with neon gas
have been carried to the point where
the tube has been caused to give out
light, although no wires have been at
tached to it. In- the ordinary form of
electric illumination the light is usual
ly produced by an Incandescent form
of filament or by carbon electrodes.
The life of both of these types is lim
ited by the burning out of the In
candescent element. Of course, in the
case of the arc lamp this can be eas
ily renewed, but at the cost of fre
quent trimming. The type of incan
descent bulb in common use has been
improved through the substitution of
tungsten for the carbon filament. Sev
eral types of lamp using incandescent
vapor have been developed, and have
been used both experimentally and
commercially. The Moore light used
very long tubes filled with carbon
dioxide or nitrogen, which were caused
to glow through the discharge of a high
voltage electric current through the
glass. This type was not much used
commercially, but a similar lamp
known as the Cooper-Hewitt mercury
vapor lamp Is at present In general
use In a great variety of places,
among them the motion-picture stu
dios. Both of these types require elec
trodes, or terminals, sealed in the
glass, but they have a long life be
cause there are no parts which wear
out or burn out.
The Instrument.
The experiments conducted at the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
used a glass tube closed upon itself
in the form of a ring. This ring was
slipped over an iron core wound with
the proper number of turns of wire
through which alternating current was
caused to flow. The magnetism, pass
ing through the glass tube, then in
duced a voltage In the gas contained
therein, and If the parts were properly
proportioned this voltage ionized the
vapor and caused it to glow, giving
out light in a similar manner to the
Moore and the Cooper-Hewitt lamps,
but of a pleasing orange color. Neon
gas at a low pressure was used, since
it has desirable characteristics for this
purpose, and a high-frequency current
of about {00,X)0 cycles was employed
to excite the transformer.
The new lamp is only In the ex
perimental stage at present and the
amount of light given out is not large,
but the possibilities are interesting. It
could be commercially made in the
form of a standard fixture around
which the glass tubes could be slipped.
The lamp will last indefinitely unless
the glass la broken, and then It is
only necessary to slip a new tube In
place, no electrical connections being
required. The quality of the light is
soft and pleasing, and as It Is not of
a high intensity it does not strain the

Pskln.—In spite of the fact that

since 1011 and the present emperor
China is a virtual prisoner In the for

connected with the Manchu emperors
are still kept up.

These offiduls are experiencing con
siderable difficulty in following out nil
the old customs because of the lack of
funds available for the upkeep of the
emperors' tombs. The funds promised
to the Imperial family by the republi

following cable to Herbert Hoover,
chairman of the American relief ad
"Permit me to convey on behalf of
this suffering nation its undying grati

which America under your esteemed
leadership has extended to us in our
