THE RAILROADS New Style Balanced Engine To Make A Speed Record ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVE f General News of Railroads and Railroad Employes. The Baltimore American says: "The now locomotive which has been in the coui-se of construction for nearly n yeni- sit the Maryland Steel company's works ut Sparrow's Point, for the Balanced Locomotive nml Engeorlug Company or New York, was completed yesterday ami made its trial trip. The engine was brought from the marine department, where It was constructed. to the main (rack of -the Sparrow's roiut railroad with satisfactory results. A. W. Beach, mechanical engineer of the Balanced Locomotive ami ujrinoeriiiK Company, who directed the work of blllldius'the engine, was in chnrgfi ami expressed lumselC :w belnu highly pleased with the result's of the trial trip. No attempt was made to run the engine at a high Kite oC speed us the track is unsuitable for such purposes. The different parts uf the engine ran smoothly and there was no delay caused. This engine is built, on a dHTei'er.i: principle from any oilier, any it is claimed will beat the record of the world for speed, and will easily run at the rate of one hr.ndred miles an hour. Inquiries in regard fo if. have been received from all paris of the world. The engine wiil be run on (ho S<P;UTI>\\-'S 1'oint railroad for a week, and then be taken to rtu'dne university at Lafayette, 1ml., where a. test of its speed will bo made under the direction of Prof. W. V. M. Coss, the well-known mechanic:)! scientist. The engine Is built, on a. low pressure aud has four cylinders, two high-pressure and two low-pressure. It weighs seventy tons and is gigantic in appearance." A NEW ENGINE. The Manhattan liailwny Company Is soon to run a new kind of electric locomotive on the branch of its elevated railway system extending from the Long Island City Ferry through Thirty-fourth street to Third avenue. W. .T. Fransloli, the acting general manager of the company, told a Tribune reporter yesterday .that the locomotive, which is being built iu the company's machine shops at Ninety-eighth street and Third avenue, was not yet ready, but would probably be run sonic tlriie this week. The builders are the Electric Storage Battery Company, of No. GO Broadway, whose works are in Philadelphia. The new locomotive is of the same size fis the steam motors now used on the elevated railroads. Its battery will be replenished from a third rail which will bo constantly charged with electricity by the New York Electrical Equipment Company, whose plant, at No. 572 First avenue, has been connected with the elevated railroad spur in East Thirty-fourth street. An, officer of the Electric Storage Battery Company said yesterday as to tbc operation of the new locomotive: "The battery Is a. stationary and permanent part oC the locomotive and is not removed for charging. If can bo charged direct from a third rail, from which.thc electricity is taken by,means of a contact shoe, which may be let down or taken up at will. When the battery, or electrical reservoir, is charged, It con- tuins a reserve force sufficient to run a' train of cars from fifteen to twenty minutes without recourse to the third rail." Two of the elevated railway passenger cars have been fitted with incandescent lights and electric heaters, to be supplied by the locomotive, which Is designed to attain the highest speed which can be utilized on the elevated railway.

Fla., Aug. 20.—The' following affidavit, which will be transmitted to Secretary Olney, has been made in regard to the murder of Chas. Goviu, a recent American citizen: Before mo, George W. Allen, a notary public in and for Monroe County, State o£ Florida, on the 21st day of August, A. D. 1SOC, personally appeared Arthur Alvarozy Valdcz, to me personally known, who, being duly sworn, deposes and says: My name is Arthur Alvarezy Valdez. I am'twenty-one years of age, a native of Havana, Cuba, and a resident of 1;bc city of Key West, State of. Florida. I am now residing at No, OC5 Division street, City of Key West. Iu company cans, I arrived iu Cuba on the Gth of July 1890, and joined the forces of the Cubans of General Agulrre. Mr. Charles Govin was one of our party, acting as correspondent of "The Equator Democrat," a newspaper oil Key West, In a battle which we had near Jaruco with the Spanish forces under General Ochoa on the Sth of July, 1S9C, several of the soldiers of Asulrre's forces uudur commaud oC Valencia dispersed, nud we (meaning the Cubans and Americans who lauded on the Cth of July as aforesaid), uot knowing well the place where we were, all got lost, each taking a different direction. I remained in the neighborhood until the next day, being July 0, 1SOO, and very near me were hidden two of my companions, one being Mr. Charles Goviu, whom I knew personaIl.v» aud knew, to Ik- the correspondent of the Key West newspaper. About the ilmo I had made up my mind to join them in their hlilinji-plnco, I ho.rt.i-il and saw some I'orc'i'S Hint wore coming toward us, and as (hey got: very near us I saw Charles Govin and his eoinp:iniou, with smiling faces, leave Him 1 hiding-place 11 nd w towiiiil the forces. 1 In-Hove M'r. Goviu took the Spanish forces lo l.u> Cubans. The troops bound Mr. Govin and his companion with ropes, and after sonic Inurt talking, which 1 could not very well understand tliey took Govin and his companion aside, iind two ol 1 the Spanish soldiers commenced to hack them over I lie head wil.li machetes whili 1 two oHmrs llrod tlii-ir nuns at thorn.

My j-.lace of hiding was near enoujrh to witness tin.- awful deed. 1 remaini'd in my plucu of hidins until after the Spanish forces left the place. The Spanish troops also robbed the two men of all of their valuables before fouryinff them. I noticed that the troops were commanded by the same General Ochoa which had Riven us battle the day before. Mr. Govin and his friend were ordered to be hacked by the said General Ochoa himself, he also taking the jewelry and other valuables. SUTTON AND SILVER. He Knew of a Han Who Knew a Han Who-—Etc. The silver tiilkor Is picked up iu Ills statements in 1 a most unexpected way, ;is are in 'fact others who make assertions in a street discussion. A. .T. Sutton approached n group of men on Fourth street aud 'Broadway day before yesterday morning, and asked If one of the crowd had a Mexican dollar. There was none 5n the crowd and he was directed to Sol Colin, who Kns them for advertising purposes. •Well," said Mr. Suttou, "they are counterfeit, and it" yon can get me one with an affidavit to its genuineness, I will give two dollars for it." Mr. Cohn was waited upon and gave this statement. A leading jeweler had weighed one and found it to be of 420 grains weight and had offered Mr. Cohn 51V. cents eac!| for them as bullion. Mr. Cohn further stated that he could produce a letter from Lyrnan .T. Gage of the First National bank of Chicago, stating that they had been received direct from the Mexican mint, and that he (Cohn) would make affidavit setting forth the facts in the case. Mr. Sutton was hunted up and told of Mr. Colm's statement, but said ho did not want one himself, but knew a. ruau who would pay $2 for one. He was finally induced to go to Mr. Colin's where that gentleman repeated his statement. Mr. Sutton wout out saying he would send his man around, but at S o'clock last night he had not yet found his man. Mr. Cohn is uot dealing in counterfeit Mexican dollars and ns .they sell only as bullion anyhow any jeweler can test and weigh them and give their value. It might:be added that while this counterfeit •story if going iirouud no counterfeit dollars hare been found by any one though the test of genuineness Is simple and easy.

CHANGING SURNAMES INTO ENGLISH. Contemporary Review: In a Canadian city It is said that an elector who announced himself at the polling booth as <'Mr. Blghouse," aud found no ballot paper awaiting him, explained that when the register was compiled he had borne the name "DcGrandmaisson." This may be a returning officer's little joke, but if it is true Mr. Bighouse only followed the example of a crowd of his fellow-countrymen a few miles further south. When Jean'-Baptiste emigrates so enger Is he to be thought "an American" that he often translates his name into English before applying .for naturalization. The. young Canadian whose father legetatcs in rusticity ns Francois Labonte blossoms into Americ;fn citizenship as Frank Goodness, His companion Dominique Lafortunc," goes one better and calls himself "Washington Lucky" In the same fashion 51.
