Tribune Man Thinks the Light Form of Phoephoresence. is a The Chicago" Tribune of Sunday contains a full page devoted to the so-called perpetual ilght invented by S. B. Nickum, of this city, also large group picture embracing views of tbe inventor's laboratory, a picture of tbe light and the inventor himself. The article contains the following statement from John S. Lairy, deputy prosecuting attorney, and another from Mr. Nickum. Mr. Lalry said: WHAT LAIRY SAW "I have been acquainted with Inventor Nickum for about five years now, and have known him always to be a hard working, quiet, first-class citlzisn of the community. We, none of us, have had much of an idea on what his efforts were being spent until lately, when it was given out tbat he was perfecting a new light, "I was given an opportunity to see the invention a couple of weeks ago There was nothing planned in advance, and when I was taken . into the laboratory there were no globes burning. But Mr. Nickum said he would give me a rough demonstration of the method he was working on. After explaining how his light was made he took some chemicals and of inches in diameter and attached the glass to his; air pump The room was darkened and the pump set agoing. As the air began to go out of the globe a faint glow was perceptible, which gradually increased until it was bright enough for me to see distinctly the faces of those standing around. This light staid as long as the pump worked, and when the air was let back into the glass bulb It disappeared.

"Tbe light Is tbe result of a discovery made some years ago It could not be produced by the means with which it is made if atoms or matter were endowed with the quality of attracting each other. "I have demonstrated that the light will remain perpetual so long as the glass composing the globe remains unchanged. This statement is based on actual tests u,nd not on theory. "I intend to take the necessary steps to put the lights on the market, which will not require a very CDn- sldem'ole length of time. They can be manufactured and placed on sale at a price that will enable all persons to obtain them; and mus't, owing to their cheapness, safety and general utility, supersede all other forms of illumination. "As to forming a stock company, or as to what method I shall pursue in getting my lamps on the market., I am, as yet, not ready to make any company's office on or before the 10th at re- inet. C.

Ttie Tribune representative, who visited Logansport before publishing the write-up, evidently suspects tbat the new light Is ot a phosphoremt nature. He says on this subject: "For many years the problem of phosphorescence has troubled the chemists and physicists o:t the world. An Immense amount of work and labor has been put upon the task of discovering how it is produced and what chemical action takes place during its continuance, but without result. In living creatures and in decaying woofl the phenomenon of phosphoresence seam (KilcieS fsjcsimiie of ^7cd3! Awardmf DR. PRiCE'S GREAiti BfiKiNG POWDER WORLD'S FAiR,0«eAG(U8Sl3 to be accompanied by chemical ictlon, bat in luminous paints and phosphorescent salts the §ame result ueems to be obtained wltbonji chemical change. The question has long been one of most intense interest as possibly affording a pathway to the iSiscovery of a light without combustion and without heat. The new discovery, now brought out by Inventor Nickum, is thought to be possibly a step in the direction of a solution of this long standing problem. Tne fact that only the slightest discernible rise in temperature accompanies the giving oft of light "by the new lamps lends strength f-o this Idea." WHAT MAY BE EXFECTECTED. Summing up the result of his investigations of the flew light, the Tribune man says in conclusion: "Whether or not Mr. Klckum's new light becomes the success be expects it to be, his work cannot be entirely neglected. That he produces a light of some kind there appears to be but little doubt, and the manner of Its making Is new to the scientific world. Even if the light Is a faLure as a practical adjunct of life, developments and discoveries of greatest moment are likely to come from this beginning. And if the light answers the high expectations of its inventor the whole world will soon stare with open mouth aad dropping jaw at a wonder beyond its comprehension." The Pharos can add that Mr. Nickum claims that his light is not phosphorescent in its nature. RESOLUTIONS ADOPIEU Last Saturday at the Democratic Mass Convention. The following resolutions were adopted at the Democratic mass convention held in this city last Saturday: Resolved by the Democrats of Oass county in mass convention assembled that we desire prosperity—that kind of prosperity that brings fair prices foruhe products of our farms and increasing instead of decreasing wages to those who earn their daily bread by daily toll, and that desiring such prosperity, we insist upon the restoration of silver to the place It once occupied us a money of ttnal redemption, the equal of gold in the payment of all debts, public and private. We view with alarm the conspiracy formed to make Jgold the master—ill things else its servant, as one designed to make the bond holder and the mortgage holder grow fat while the producers oti wealth grow pjor. Resolved, That we favor "sound money"—the kind of money denominated In the bond, either gold or silver, at the option of the government •—and we denounce those who seek to make all government obligattjns paj able ia gold, in violation of the terms of the contract, as enemies of the producing masses, who must eventu ally pay these bonds. Resolved, That we still insist upon the right to criticise ths conduct of any public official, whetherjsuch of iicial may hold the humble position Of constable or the exalted position of associate justice of the supreme court of the United Spates. We insist also upon the right to protest against the tyrannical, insolent and unpatriotic coures pursued by corporations In the last presidential campaign, In resorting to coercion and intimldatloia as a means of depriving freemen of their political rights. Resolved, That we are opposed to the retirement ot the greenbacks; to surrendering to the national banks the governmental function of supply- Ing money and to the Issuing ol! any more government bonds in time of peace. We denounce the Dingley tariff as a failure as a reyenue producer and as a measure that will not provide a market for another bushel of wheat or another barrel of pork. It has already restricted the markets for American goods ana ha? forced Sew England manufacturers to reduce the wages or more than 100,000 wage earners, most of whom voted for sound money and a high tariff. It has fostered trusts. It has added to the burdens or the poor. It puts four dollars into the coffers of protected corporations to where it puts one dollar Into the government treasury. We regret—sincerely regret—that Mark Hanna, tltie learned statesman, tne discoverer of Wm. McEinley and the boss of the present administration Is in trouble In Ohio. We extend to him our sympathy, with the hope, tbat, in case he fails of election to the senate, McKinley will provide him with "something equally asgood.-' 1 Notice to Ltdiea of €1.
