A PROMINENT electrical englneerstates that about sixty storage battery street railroad motors are now in operation in various cities of the United States and Europe. THE dynamo is replacing the battery to such an extent in telegraphy that its use will, it is thought, be universal in a lew years. It is both cheaper and more efficient. THERE will be no more general elections this year, but Thanksgiving Day, Christmas and New Year's are not far oft There is always some thing in life to look forward to. INGENIOUS engineers suggest that the artesian well may be developed by means of electrical appliances into a powerful and cheap source of almost unlimited power. A stTBSTiTUTE for emery in grinding has been found in crushed steel. Highly tampered steel is heated and plungee Into water. This renders it so brittle •that it can be pulverized, and in this shape it does the work of emery bettor than the genuine article. WAU STREEt QUIETER. were had close done. VETERAN seamen agree that the iceberg crop of the present summer exceeds that of any previous year during the latter half of the nineteenth century. Their theory is that the whole mountain ctains of Arctic ice must have been set adrift by the unprecedented mildness of the last winter. Ai/trsiiNU&i bronze of 10 per cent, it is claimed, has a breaking strength oi 810,000 pounds, as against 80,000 pounds for steel; hence when the time comes, which can not be far distant, for build- Ing bridges of aluminum or its alloy we shall have a structure about one-tnir 1 * the present weight and much stronger. THE stones that have been cast upor. the grave of Helen Hunt (in accordance with her wish that visitors should cast upon it two and take away one as a memento) have completely hidden from yiew the original mound, and formed one that somewhat resembles a huge coffin. The pile is now five feet from the ground and increases rapidly. A GEKMAXTOWN, PA., horticulturist this year raised figs of excellent quality in the open air. The only special treatment given in this instance is the burying of the trees when winter cornea. The earth is thrown out on one side, the branches are bent over and kept down /by stout pegs driven into the ground, .•and then the earth is thrown back to cover the branches to a depth of about six inches. A NOVEL sort of legal punishment is •reported from Moncton, N. B., where a lad of eleven was convicted of stealing -shoes from the store in which he was ^employed. There was no reformatory .and the boy was too young to be sen-; tenced to prison. Therefore, tho judge •summoned his mother and ordered her to give him a severe spanking in the presence of the court, after which he •was released, a sadder but wiser urchin. IT is a strange coincidence that exactly one hundred years ago young girls in London were in constant terror of meet- .Ina the "Jack the Ripper" of that day. He attacked ana wuundod oovorn.] ladiea In different parts of the town, cutting their garments and gashing them in tho body with a sharp-pointed instrument, although he never went so far as murder. In April, 1700, a large reward was offered for the apprehension oi "tha Monster," as he was popularly called. ONE of those clever French women, who in their peculiar way have always exercised a great influence in French politics, died tho other day. The dowager Marquise Castellaine was her name, and her last hours were passed at Roch- ecotte in Touraine, where, during the closing years of the second empire, she did so much to undermine the power of Napoleon III. In this secret work she was allied with Thiers occasionally, and more constantly with Montalom- bert, Dupanloup and the Count of Fal- loux.

Members of the clearing house had only to present satisfactory collateral to receive certificates and consequently settle their balances. Throe State banks 'wore unable to set- tie their balances at the clearing house on Tuesday morning and the issue of certificates was authorized. Tho smaller banks which had announced their inability to pay their balances had no connections with Wall street, and the suspension of tho North River Bank at the close of business was a complete surprise. Last week the clearing house circular showed tho North River Bank as having a capital of $240,000, a surplus of $128,500; loans, 82,000,013; deposits, $1,975,000, and cash on hand, $270,000. The cause of the present difficulty is simply tight money. On account of the mention of tho North River Bank as one of the defaulters at the clearing house Tuesday depositors started a quiet but steady run on It Wednesday morning. The bank stood out until 2:30, when its ready money was exhausted and it had to close its doors. Iti did an average business of $3,000,000. An advance of $65,000 in clearing house certificates was insufficient to meet the bank's requirements, and the remaining securities that might be offered for additional aid found unacceptable. The bank nothing to do except to its doors, and this was The loan committee of the clearing house went to the bank for the purpose of examining its assets, but only to find that a representative of the State banking department was in charge. The stock market followed tho developments of the day. The opening was at substantial advances and after many variations the closing was confident. One or two small failures were withoui effect because they were considered merely relics of a past condition. Transactions "under the rule" were numerous, but only for small lots, and high rates for money could no stop the natural reaction. The fina! gains were from 3 to 3 per cent, on an average, and North American, in which the dealings were about 150,000 shares closed a fraction higher, although no above its first price. The reports tha Jay Gould had secured .practical control of tho Union Pacific helped that stock and incidentally affected the stock concerned by it. Northwestern early declined on the supposition that a change in control would put an end to the traffic alliance between the Union Pacific and Northwestern, but when it was discovered that, if the report was true, the arrangement had been made only by the help of bankers interested in establishing harmony among Western railroads, all the granger stocks rose simultaneously. Theyclosed about their highest prices and in urgent demand. The failure of Joseph C. Walcott, banker and broker, 32 pine street, was announced on the Stock Exchange. The failure of B. K. True, stock broker at 38 Broad street, was also announced. Liabilities and assets unknown. George W. Quintard, the assignee of Charles M. Whitney & Co., who failed on Tuesday, said that the firm owed about $3,000,000, which was covered by collateral at 20 .per cent, margin at the time of making the loans. The firm had on hand, he said, about $100,000 in securities, and twice that sum was due which it was thought would be paid within the next few days and would go toward making up to creditors any deficiencies of securities. The creditors had thus far borne themselves most amicably, and some of the larger ones had offered several days ago to straighten out thedifflcultles, if possible. The firm owed nothing outside of the $3,000,000 due on loans, the securities on which were deemed sufficient when the loans were made. Mr. Quintard said that 'the question of whether Whitney & Co. would be able to go on with their business depended upon tho state of the market the next few days and the value of the securities pledged. The assignee of Decker. HowoU &. Co., William Nelson Cromwell, made this statement: "The liabilities are between $10,000,000 and 815,000,000, most of which is due to banks and bankers on loans. The assets are largely in excess of the liabilities, and nearly every loan is well secured by collateral. The firm delivered me a part of its assets, about $1,0,0,00!) of securities in a box. This goes to show that the failure was not due to lack of securities, but to the extreme money stringency which prevented the firm from completing its daily amount of borrowing. If the creditors use good judgment and do not act hasti'.y they will not only be paid in full but will have a good surplus for the estate."

The eyes of the country were on Columbus and its central figure, the Old Roman, whoso rugged honesty has likened him to those patriots of old who placed the public welfare above considerations of self. To no retired statesman of recent times has come such a flood of universal good will and loving sentiment. The list of distinguished visitors and those who have procured seats at the banquet table is not composed exclusively of Democrats. There are many Republicans here from Ohio and elsewhere who come, noc as partisans but as citizens, to show their appreciation of the public service rendered by Judge Thurman.

The Desperate and Horrible method Adopted by an Imprisoned Member of the llube Burrows Gang to Kill Himself. JACKSON, Miss., Nov. 11.—Joe Jackson, the noted train robber, and one of the notorious Rube Burrows gang, committed suicide in the penitentiary here Monday by jumping from a flight of steps to a brick pavement fifty feet below. He was to have been arraigned with Rube Smith, another of the gang, for robbing the mails at the Buclcatunna train robbery a few months ago. The United States Marshal sent an officer to the cell after him, but he had no sooner opened the door than Jackson, with a drawn knife, ran up the steps. He was told he could not escape. "I know that," ho replied, "but I can kill myself, which I am going to do, and end this matter. I will never be arraigned in this court for my crimes." The officers reasoned with him for an hour and a half without shaking him horrible purpose. They then the steps, but Jackson held bay with the knife, telling would kill the first man who laid hands on him. The penitentiary officials, seeing that he was determined, got a bed to catch him on when he made the fatal leap. "O, that will do no good," he coolly remarked. "I will jump over it" Then, without any emotion, he said to those below: "Look out! Here I come." And, making a dive with his head downward, he struck the pavement, fifty feet below, landing on the back of his head and shoulders. His skull was crushed, and after lingering unconsciously an hour he died. from went them them his up at he FROM THE HARVEST. "THE majority of people wind their watches before going to bed," says a practical watch-waker. "It is the worst .possible time. The right time is in the morning. A watch always goes faster when •the spring is tightly coiled, and when laid down over night is sure to gain a little. In the daytime the shaking ot the body oscillates the spring and retards the movement. If, however, the watch has been wvund in the morning, the effort of the tailed spring to send the hands taster t« equalized by the BhaUing of the moving body, and thus the watch goes neither too fast nor toe •low." Has Quit liusineas. NKW YORK, Nov. 13.—The Guardian Fire Insurance Company of this city has gone into voluntary liquidation because its business had for some time ceased to be profitable, and in fact was conducted at a loss. The cash capital was $200,000. One of the directors said that the cash capital of the company had been impaired to the extent of 10 or 12 per cent. ; that the company had probably $S,000,000 or $9,000,000 risks outstanding, &ad that when they had been reinsured and the business of the company wound up —which would take about a year—the stockholders would probably get seventy-five cents on the dollar. William Is for Peace. BKKI.IN, Nov. 18.—Emperor William opened the Prussian Diet by a brief speech, giving the condition of the state and proposing new legislation. Among other measures are these: An income tax bill; for the organization of provincial councils; for free elementary schools and for a reorganization of the system of. trade inspection. Emperor William read his speech in the White flail. He was cheered on entering the hall, and tha reading of the speech was frequently interrupted by applause, the Emperor's pacific declarations regarding Prussia's foreign relations being especially approved. Small Average Yield of Potatoes—Good Crops of Hay and Sorghum. WASHINGTON, Nov. 11.—The November returns to the Department of Agriculture of rates of yield per acre make the average for corn 19.9 bushels; potatoes, 57.5 bushels; buckwheat 14.5 bushels; hay, 1.20 tons; tobacco, 7^.8 pounds. The corn crop makes the smallest yield reported, excepting only that of 1881, which was 18.0 bushels. That of 1887 was 30.1 bushels. It is 83 per cent, of the average of the last ten years, a period which included four unusually poor years, and only 78 per cent, of last year's crop. Ohio averages ao.7; Michigan, 35.7; Indiana, 34.3; Illinois, 35; Iowa, 20. 'The yields of the hay crop are large as a rule throughout the country. The cane- sugar crop will be a large one and sugf beets have done well west of the Missouri, indicating a probable rapid development of the sugar industry. IT STILL FLOURISHES. Authorities in Utub M ikiu- Mauy Arrest* fur Violation of tile Anti-J'olygiiiny I, nv. SALT LAKE CITV, U. T., Nov. 11.— Notwithstanding President Woodruff'9 proclamation polygamy still nourishes in Uiah. Forty-two arrpsts have been made for this crime within the last Sixty days, and all reports sent out b> the church to the contrary are false. The church has as yet made no declaration on the subject of the manifesto, and is not likely to do so. The silence i thought to be due largely to the influ ence of George Q. Caanou, who bimsoli i baa four wive? driven to the Governor's reaidence, where breakfast was served. The public reception to ex-President Cleveland, announced to take place in the-Governor's office from 11 a. m. to 1 p. m., was taken advantage of by thousands of people. At the conclusion of the reception at the capital the ex-President drove to tho residence of Judge Thurman and congratulated him on the anniversary of his 77th birthday. At the banquet hall the decorations, perfected under the artistic hands of qualified workmen, were a marvel of imposing beauty. It was just 8:15 when ex-President Cleveland and Judge Thurman entered the room. They were arm in arm, the President supporting his venerable companion, who, further assisted by a cane, walked slowly up the hall. A mighty cheer went up from a thousand throats as the audience caught sight of the two distinguished guests of the evening. Simultaneously every man arose from his seat and waved the traditional red bandanna handkerchief in honor of the Old Roman. With dignity, yet smilingly, Mr. Thurman bowed to his 1,000 frantic admirers, and Grover Cleveland did likewise, as cheers for the ex-President rent the air. At the conclusion of the banquet Mr. John J. Lenta, chairman of the Thurman Club, rapped the vast assemblage to order and delivered the address of welcome. Ho was followed by Joseph H. Outhwaite, the toastmaster of the evening. Simultaneously' 1,000 people rose to their feet as the toastmaster concluded his remarks with the words: "To the health, long life and continued happiness of our guest. [Applause.] The ap plause which had greeted the toast was renewed as the "Old Roman" rose to respond. It swelled from applause to cheers, from a mild acclaim to a deafening roar, and 1,000 bandana handkerchiefs were waved frantically in the air. It was five minutes before the cheering which greeted the toast subsided sufficiently to enable Judge Thurman to respond. The inspiration of the occasion caused his massive frame to regain ali its old-time vigor. Mr. Thurman spoke feelingly, expressing gratitude for the demonstration made in his honor. In conclusion, referring to the fact that his name hac been mentioned as a candidate for the Vice-Presidency in 1892, he said: ' Let me say to you, in all sincerity and will out ilio least mentul reservation, that I am no nor shall I ever again be a candidate for office I have been sufficiently honored by my party and neither ask nor desire any further hono than continued friendship and good will. Ex-President Cleveland was heartily cheered on responding to the toast "Citr izenship in America." Don M. Dickinson responded to "The Democracy of the Future;" William T. Wilson to "The House of Representatives;" Judge R. A. Harrison (;o "The Early Ohio Bar;" Thomas Ewing to "The Democratic Party in Relation to Future Public Economy;" ex-Senator McDonald to "The Sen'ute;" W. C. P. Breekinridge to Democracy in America," and Congressman Springer to "The Press." At 2:10 a. m. the banquet closed amid the greatest of good cheer, the band playing the "Star Spangled Banner." 4.

Irving Beimiebft, sdtt ot Super* intendent Denttlsoti of Toledo, one ot the wounded students, has died of his injuries, while two others afo BO badly hurt that their re* covery has been given up. The trouble began when Company A of the State milttla marched to the house of a newly married member and fired a volley. Tho shooting brought out at least a thousand students, who guyed the soldiers. Thisf annoyed the commander, Lieutenant Granger, and he ordered a charge. This in turn angered tho students and they pitched into the soldiers. Vicious and fierce fighting followed and many on both sides were hurt in the melee. When it was learned on the streets that a death had been the result of the "run" of Wednesday evening the citizens and students alike expressed their disapproval , of the proceedings. Knots of students gathered downtown, and the streets were lined with earnest crowds discussing the all-absorbing topic. That a crowd of armed men should march through the streets, beating drums and shooting volleys of blank cartidrges so soon after tho exciting events of Tuesday night was universally censured. Mayor Manly said tho young man who commanded the squad of militia came to him and asked to be allowed to have the squad fire an honorary salute for their comrade who had just been married. The mayor denied the request, knowing that if granted it would result in exciting tho students again. At 11 o'clock a. m. Coroner Clark impaneled a jury for the purpose of investigating the matter thoroughly. Tho Inquest continued through the afternoon and the court-room was crowded with 1,000 or more students. The inquest is being conducted in a thorough manner. All the witnesses swore they did not at any time see any Btones thrown or other weapons used by the students. About all of the evidence was to the same effect—even that of one of the members of Company A—although the latter said some of the members claimed they were hit. There are two sides to the case, the militiamen claiming they were struck by clubs and stones before they retaliated, while the students claim the militia charged first. It is certain that stones were thrown at some time during the fracas, as Granger, who was in com-j mand of the squad, now lies at hishom with his skull fractured and about eve chances for his recovery. The prosecution of the case will vigorous. Already three arrests ha been made. S. F. Granger, who coin manded the militia, was arrested in his bed, and was in such condition that he could not be moved. The other two prisoners are Ellsworth Thomas and Fred Root. Warrants have been issued for all those who were in the military ranks Wednesday night THROUGH A TRESTLE. THE WEATHER The PROPHETS. Corps SHORT OF FUEL.
