It is said that in Chicago one dealer alone receives in a single season hum Ming Birds and other Birds of different varieties. It is certainly time that something should be done to pre vent this Slaughter of the at Tampa. The students of my schoo at Northi Welcl have contributed Abou its for the same purpose. Many Ilif Fere it lines of service will themselves to those who have a hear to see something done. Ami let us at promptly before the Devil yets a foot hold. I Pray god that this Ivar May re found to his glory and the salvation of multitudes of our Young men. Contributions sent to me at my Home addressed. East Lori Fiield mass. For the fund for sending religious books u the Camps will be devoted strictly t that purpose. Similar appeals have been sen throughout the will receive wide publication through the the religious Oress. person ally is entirely in sympathy with the National administration on the cuban Issue. He was among the first of the Christian ministry to declare for War ii the iishumanlt3 of the Spanish Govi ment practice in the Island of Cuba Ould not be stopped by peae Means. He has Seldom appeared on the platform since it became apparent that crisis Between Spain and the United states was inevitable that he has not made an eloquent and Earnest Appeal for suffering humanity on the Island off the Florida coast. During the Winter he visited Tampa and the coast of Florida and at these Points Learned enough of the suffering in Cuba to place him at one jump in the front rank of the forces demanding intervention on the part of the american people. It is announced that or Moody s War Campaign will not interfere with the regular Northfield summer conferences which have become so widely known under his direction. On the contrary these plans have been developed so As to Widen and deepen that great work. The conferences however it is expected will result greatly to the advantage of he War corps and or. Moody will not ail to take advantage of the Opportunity to further the interests of the Christian movement at the front. The program of exercises for the summer begin with the closing of the North fluid school. Evangelist Moody to go to the front. An official Call has been issued by evangelist d. L. Bloody to the people of the United states to support a corps of Christian workers under his direction that will accompany the army and Navy during the War with Spain. If hostilities continue very Long the great Evango list will himself go to the front As he did in the service of the Christian commission during the civil War. While the Federal government is spending millions of dollars upon naval and military equipment or Moody Calls upon the Church to interest itself in the moral and religious needs of the fight ins Man on sea and land. The move ment has the approval and co operation of the Federal authorities at washing ton. Secretary anger and general Miles have been consulted and have Given the project their unqualified support. At Tampa and other military Camps where the work is already under Way it has received the general support of the army officers and is appreciated by the men. Maj. D. "5v. Whittle the Well known evangelist Gen. O. O. Howard both vet Erans of the civil War or. A. C. Dison and j. H. Burke Are now in the Field As an Advance guard. Their commission is to hold meetings and distribute religious Reading matter among the sol Diers encamped at Tampa and at Chickamauga Park. Others will follow As last As the arrangements can be made and As stated if the occasion requires it or. Moody is determined to person ally direct the work even from the Interior of Cuba. His purpose is to work where the most can be accomplished. For the present he is engaged in raising funds recruiting the Force consulting with the military authorities at the National capital and making other Neces sary arrangements for the work in pro Gress and in contemplation. The following Call to service with the army and Navy by or. Moody is published in the record of Christian work when War was Deso lating our coun try about thirty six years ago the Christian commission did Good work by sending men into the midst of the strife to minister to our soldiers and to distribute bibles and testaments. The Christian people prayed As i have never known them to Pray since and prayer led to Active Effort. Camps were turned into Camp meetings and the voice of Praise and song was heard from end to end of the line. The government did everything in its Power to Aid the movement the generals were in favor of it. And a Good religious tone was developed All through the ranks. To the present Day i men who were converted during that War. Out of its horrors and Deso lation came fruit to the glory of god. However much we May deplore the present War it is now upon us and f Teal that the Call has come to the Chris Tian people once again to do whatever can. Our Young men Are being called into service. There Are times in crimp when they cannot help feeling i Mesick. When the thought of danger Sobers them and brings them face to face with the question of eternity. Shall net we who stay at Home follow them with our prayers and minister to their spiritual needs in every possible Way it scorns to me to be the Nick of time to Ivsich them. A Start has already been made. Secretary Alger and general Miles have consulted and Are favourable to Christian Effort. The people of Harris Burg pa., have subscribed to Send bibles and religious books to the Camp saloons As nuisances. Indianapolis news the suits filed yesterday against fair Bank and Kissel s Garden Are based on theory or a new application of saloons Etc., in residence neighbourhoods. Twelve suits have been instituted. Six against each one of these by persons who own Homes in he immediate neighbourhood. These an for damages and for Tion against these places on the ground that the rental value of the properly has been decreased and the enjoyment of the households disturbed by reason of Dis orderly conduct and violations of Law in the Sale of intoxicating liquors. These cases Art on the same principle of Law. As the Case of Haggart is. Steh Lin decided by the supreme cirt of in Diana in the application of the theory has id ready been Elf votive in Era instances. Three resident ners at mount Jackson brought suits against the proprietor of a Road known As the Abbey Ami against the owner of the real judgments for damages and injunctions against the defendants were obtains in every Cass. The business was continued for a time after the were issued. Cut judge the Superior court put the sheriff in pos session of the premises an i compelled j All the fixtures and property to be j moved out of the bulking and then turned it Over to Wishek a. The owner of the real estate. The latter appealed to the supremo court. The judgments were affirmed. Meanwhile wish Iier Hud permitting the property to be used for the same of purpose Ami was brought before the court two weeks ago for contempt of court in violating the injunctions. He was fined for this and an additional judgment for Dama Ges in each Case was rendered against him. That place is now closed. A suit of the same kind was recently brought by Emma Kersey against Thomas Jick Enna and Louis Schulz at it. Jackson and on the service sum Mons the place quit business. A like suit was brought against Charles tru Emper. The proprietor of the Saloon and resort known As and a judg ment for damages and injunction was recovered against him. John Mcginty s Saloon in Ilc Carty Street was closed by like proceedings and Many other suits of this kind Are now in All these cases capt. Ell hitter we be Lieve has been the prosecuting attorney. There is no doubt we think that a icons May have the effect of injuring the value of neighbouring property and disturbing the Comfort of a residence District. Whether this is so in any particular Case must be a question of fact to be determined by a careful sifting of evidence. People in the Neighb airhood t the two places against which suits filed yesterday differ in their judg nent As to their effect. People of All sorts and conditions visit or the other. Many people Are unaffected thereby. But. Doubtless considered by and Large their influence is Irr this country at least Public Beer gardens an not exactly elevating institutions. The Glamour of respectability Over them often adds to their bad influence. The cases filed yesterday will probably serve to show whether these full Creek places belong in he of the Law to the prohibited class. They May. Therefore prove to. Be very important test cases. If the is against them saloons and resorts in suburban regions and residence neighbor hoods Are tit by to have serious trouble in the future.

Horse Power is converted from Meni volts alternating at 25 cycles at which it is furnished by the Niagara Falls Power company to about 200 volts direct current. The United states government has ordered for use in the coast defences a Large number of the most powerful to be built in the earliest possible time arid delivered for mount ing in the principal harbours along the last.

Caustic soda and bleaching powder Are now being made a Niagara Falls in tace Plant of the Mattieson Alkali company. This factory is located on the lands of the Niagara Falls Power company and has been built during the past year says the Philadelphia up court. It is one of the most sub Stantial of the new electro chemical Rill be understood to be to vary the pressure supplied to the rotaries by Cut Ting in or out sections of the primaries of the Static transformers. It May be mentioned that each set of Static trans formers consist of two trans formers of 100 horse Power each and that they re 200 to from 170 to 000 volts. In the Mathieson Plant the use of mall electric motors for various uses where Power is needed is Well portrayed As there Are no less than two phase induction motors in use about the factory. The functions they perform Are to operate pumps cranes drive blowers Etc. And two Are used on hand trucks in. Starting up the to Laries if desired. However the Early operation of the Plant led to the adoption of a novel method. On each of the rotaries there is a 10-Inch Pulley and an idler the armature Shaft being extended beyond the bearing of the alternating current end for this purpose the original idea was to pull one of the Small motors on the hand truck into position and Belt it to the rotary. In this Way bringing the latter up to syn cronyism and to repeat the operation until All of the rotaries were in opera Tion but the first machine was hardly in operation before the idea of using it As a motor suggested itself to the men in charge and it was adopted Only a few minutes being required to Start the entire Plant. Such practical ideas As these Are met with in nearly every factory at the Falls and it is no won Der that the development of these forms an interesting study for electricians the world Over. The require ments of the several plants vary in Many ways and the Bright Young electricians in charge set about meeting the needs of the situation immediately when it is presented.
