EDISON TO DO MARVELOUS THINGS
WITH THE TELEPHONE.
A Perfected Machine that will Work
a Revolution—The Wizard Tells the
Story of His Invention and What He
Hopes from It.
Prom the Philadelphia Timet.
New York, Oct. 21.—Thomas A. Edison
has got the most wonderful laboratory on
the face of tbo earth. He has erected at
Llewellyn Park, in Orange, N. J., three
buildings of brick. Each is 100 feet long by
50 wide, and each has four stories. These
buildings are Vicing supplied with every
known material which could possibly be
made use of.
Mr. Edison has been talking to a reporter
of the Evening Post and has been telling
some marvelous tales about his perfected
phonograph. Hear him:
THE WONDERFUL PHONOGRAPH.
“You know that I finished the first
phonograph more than ten years ago. It
remained more or loss of a try. The germ
of something wonderful wu-s perfectly dix
tinct, but I tried the impossible with it and
when the electric light business assumed
commercial importance 1 threw everything
overboard for that. Nevert,hless the phono
graph has been more or less constantly in
my mind ever since. When resting from
prolonged work upon the light my brain
would revert almost automatically to the
old idea. Since the light has been finished
I have taken up the phonograph and after
eight months of steady work have made it a
“My phonograph I expect to see in every
business office. The first 500 will, 1 hope, bo
ready for distribution about the end of
January. Their operation is simplicity it
self, and cannot fail. The merchant or
clerk who wishes to send a letter lias only
to set the machine in motion and to talk m
his natural voice and at the usual rate of
speed into the receiver. When he has
finished the sheet, or ‘phonogram,’ as I call
it, is ready for putting Into a little box
made on purpose for the mails. We are
making the sheets into three sizes—one for
letters of from NOO to 1,000 words, another
size for 2,000 words, another size for 4,000
words. I expect that an arrangement may
be made with the post office authorities en
abling the phonogram boxes to be sent at
tl'.e same rate as a letter.
. LISTENING TO THE MESSAGE.
The receiver of a phonogram will put it
into his apparatus, and the message will be
given out more clearly, more distinctly than
the best telephone message ever sent. The
tones of the voice in the two phonographs
which I have finished are so perfectly ren
dered that one can distinguish between
twenty different persons, each one of
whom has Said a few words. One tremen
dous advantage is that the letter may be re
peated a thousand times if necessary. The
phonogram lioes not wear out by use; more
over it may be filed away for a hundred
years, and be ready the instant it is needed,
if a man dictates bis will to the phono
graph there will be no disputing tue au
thenticity of the document with those who
knew the tones of bis voice in life. The cost
of making the phonogram will be scarcely
more than the cost of ordinary letter paper.
The machine will read out the letter or mes
witli the same speed with which it was dic
“1 have experimented with a device for
enabling printers to set type from the dic
tation of the phonograph and think that it
will work to a charm. It is so arranged
that the printer by touching a lever with
his foot allows five or ten words of the
phonogram to be sounded. If he is not
satisfied with the first hearing he can make
it reiieat the same words over and over
again until he has them in type. For busy
men who dictate a great deal for the press 1
am sure that the phonograph will be a
necessity after a very little experience.
TAKING DOWN AN OPERA.
“For musicians the phonograph is going
to do wonders, owing to the extreme cheap
ness with which I can duplicate phonograms
and the delicacy with which the apparatus
gives out all musical sounds. In the early
phonograph of ten years ago, which was a
very imperfect and crude affair compared
to that of today, it was always noticed that
musical sounds -ame out peculiarly well;
the machine would whistle or sing far better
than it would talk. This peculiarity of the
phonograph remains. J have taken down
the music of an orchestaa, uinl the result is
marvelous; each instrument can be perfectly
distinguished, the strings are perfectly dix
tinct, the violins from the cellos, the wind
instruments and the wood are perfectly
heard, and even in the notes of a violin the
over-tones are distinct to a delicate ear. It
is going to work wonders for the benefit of
music lovers. A piece for any instrument,
for the piano or for an orchestra, or an act,
or the whole of an opera, musical instru
ments and voices can bo given out by the
phonograph with a beauty of tone and a
distinctness past belief, and. the duplicating
apparatus for phonograms is so cheap an
affair that the price of music for the phono
graph will be scarcely worth considering.
As the phonogram will Iks practically inde
structible by ordinary use such music can
be played over and over again.
AN ELECTRIC MOTOR.
“My first phonograph, ns you remember,
consisted simply of a roller carrying the
foil and provide I with a diaphragm-point
?roperlv arranged to scrape or indent the
oil. The roller was turned by hand. In
file new instrument there is far more com
plication, but altogether different results.
My profiling machinery consists of a small
electric motor, run by avery 1 few cells.
Strange to say, I have found more diffi
culty in getting a motor to suit me than
any other part of the apparatus.. I tried
various kinds of clock-work and spring
motors, but found them untrustworthy and
noisy. The motors lam now making are
absolutely steady and noiseless. There is
no part of the apparatus, the tools for which
I am now making upon a large scale here,
which is likely to get out of order or to
work ill an uncertain manner. The two fin
ished phonographs are practically exactly
what i intend to offer for sale within a few

BULL FIGHTING IN SAN DIEGO.
A Weak-kneed creature Cruelly
Teased and an Able Bodied Bull Let
s Prom the San Diego Union.
Promptly at the appointed time and
amid the blast of a buglo the four mata
dores, clad in scarlet and each bearing a
scarlet shawl, entered tlio arena, accom
panied by an alleged clown, half scarlet and
half blue, whose strong point lav in his
ability to make people tired. Then two
picadors, both mounted, entered, one
nearing a pole with a sharp spike in the end
of it, and the other carrying a four-tined
pitchfork. After many howls from the
audience a tame, sad-eyed, half-starved
little bull ambled in through the gate, as if
his knees were weak and he was looking for
a place to lean against Then one of the
picadores jabbed tho pitchfork into the
mild-mannered little animal, and the other
picador, riding at full speed, jabbed the
spike into its rump. The brute kicked, and
the crowd howled with delight when ho ran
here and there to escape from-his persecu
tors. Here the matadors appeared on tho
scene and shook their scarlet shawls in the
face of the creature; but he was evidently a
church member, and kept his temper. Thou
the picadors chased ihe poor brute about
by jabbing the pitchfork and the spiked pole
into him, until finally the crowd, seeing
that the bull would not fight, yelled: “Open
the gate!” “Chare him out!” “Oh, the
calf!” “He’s no good!’ “He’s n sheep!”
and such expressions, and, obeying tlie will
of the crowd, the gate was opened and the
bull was chased out.
The performance was gone through with
seventeen different times, and only in two
instances did the hulls show any inclination
to fight. On the first occasion a small but
well-fed animal made a wild lunge at a
matador immediately upon entering tho
arena. The matador, dropping bis scarlet
shawl, fled for protection behind one of the
five “shields”—little fences built up just
close enough to the wall of the arena to
allow a man to slip behind. The bull
tossed the shawl about oil its horns, and
then plunged wildly at another matador,
who quickly sought tho protection of a
shield. Then the picadores prodded the
brute most unmercifully, and one of them,
seizing a bauderilla, strum it into the neck
of the suffering animal, whore it hung, and
was soon covered with blood from the
The brutal treatment, instead < f angering
the bull, seemed to fill him with fear, but
lie still continued to plunge occasionally at
the matadors, and would doubtless have
worked himself into a fury had not the
management answed the cry of a couple of
spectators ami turned liitn out. On the
other occasion a savage hull was led into the
arena, and, after having received a couple
of thrusts from the picadors, began to
snort ami paw the ground and make tilings
decidedly lively for the matadors. Most
of the spectators were cheering themselves
hoarse as every new wound was given the
animal, when suddenly tho gate was opened
and out the enraged bull rushed and was
soon beyond the sight of the vaqueros, who
feigued to pursue him. At this the patience
of the crowd seemed to exhaust itself, and
the cheers of but a moment before were
changed to a storm of hisses and wild howls,
mingled with cries of “Fraud!” “Put-up
job!” “Give us back our money!” etc. Tho
hand struck up a tune, but .t was smothered
by yells, and fur a while pandemonium
reigned. From that moment the crowd be
came more and more dissatisfied and began
'to leave, and half an hour after it had
dispersed, and even the matadors and
picadores had left tho place. It was re
marked that that the show had one good
point: “It had given the civilized specta
tors just enough of a bull fight to show
them what a brutal pastime tho genuine
Spanish sport must be.”
A CURIOUS CASE.
In Which a Knock-Kneed Man Sues
for Pecuniary Damages.
A case of somewhat peculiar and unusual
character was decided by the Supreme
Court at Atlanta, Ga., Saturday.
Joseph Evans sued George W. Collier, of
Fulton county, for SIO,OOO damages. He
alleges that at the age of 4 yeai-s he came
into the hands of Mrs. Evans, a sister of
Collier, who claimed that lie was bound to
her, and that she kept him at work for her
until he reached the age of 10, when she
turned him over to Collier. He alleged
that during all this time she compelled him
to work very hard, making him carry
heavy cans of milk to the city, four miles
from where they lived; in consequence
of which ho became knock-kneed; that
after she turned him over to Col
lier, he was put to work on the latter’s
farm, and was worked so hard that he be
came still more knock-kneed, that he went
to an eminent surgeon in Atlanta, who told
him-he would straighten his legs if Collier
would pay the cost of the necessary appa
ratus, which would be $25, but that Collier
refused to do this, and continued to work
He also charged that Collier once ordered
him to shoot a cow, promising that be would
stand up to him arid shield him from t rouble
on account of it; that he shot the cow, was
arrested, and was bailed out by Collier;but
that Collier afterward got angry with him,
and by strategy and false representations
enticed him to town and gave him up to the
Sheriff, who put him in jail and kept him
there for several days.
When the case came up in the Sujierior
Court counsel for Collier demurred to the
declaration, on the ground that no sufficient
cause of action was alleged. Tho demurrer
was sustained and the case dismissed.
Messrs. Reub Arnold & Bon, the plaintiff’s
attorneys, then carried the case to the Su
preme Court. The Supreme Court Satur
day affirmed the decision of the Superior
Court. The court held that Evans failed to
allege facts going to show that Collier was
under any legal obligation to pay
for the straightening of his legs, there
being no allegation that Collier had
not paid him for his work; also,
that so far ns could lie inferred from the
declaration, Evans knew that the shooting
of the cow was an offense, and must take
the consequences. Hence no ground for
damages had lx>en alleged. The decision
was rendered by Justice Blandford. It is
doubtful if just such a case was ever tried
in Georgia liefore, ami the attorneys are
satisfied that the court has established a
precedent that- will he of incalculable value
to future generations of litigants.
Zebehr Pasha’a Story.
From the London Daily yews.
The latest and longest interview of recent
times is surely that of Zebehr Pasha by a
lady. It occupied over four months, and a
first installment of it appears in the Con
temporary Ueriew for September. Miss,
or Mrs., Shaw ran Zebehr to earth at Gib
raltar, in his lonely cottage on the Rock,
ami there. - ummndrd by nis servants, who
occasionally helped with illustrative notes,
and witu the aid of an interpreter, she
took down the old slave hunter’s story. It
is needless to say that in her report Zebehr
is washed quite white. He is a gentleman of
most ancient descent, and lie can count back
for forty generations, right tip to Abbas,
the uncle of the prophet. He was kidnapped
into the Oentral African trade, and he ap
pears to have passed his life in a praise
worthy attempt to moralize it. His scheme
of slave battalions was merely a human
alternative to the Nyam-Nyam practice of
cannibalism. He induced that tribe to sell
tiieir enemies instead of eating them.
When Zebehr began to do bu- iness with
them they ate all prisoners of war and all
fat persons, as well as all who were "ill-be
haved.” It was not, however, considered
go- 1 breeding to eat your own relatives.
They were sold to eat, and flliuT piety
always negotiated the sale of its mother to
a friend. This opening installment of a
strange story will make us all long to hear
more of Zebehr.

THE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1887.
The Uncivilized Way Atlanta Treated
Some of Her Visitors.
The Atlanta correspondent of the Augusta
Chronicle writes as follows about the ex
position: "Another oversight which oc
curred and which was so palpably wrong
that I was sure it was tho result of mistake
and not intention, was allowing visiting
military companies, who came by invita
tion of the exposition to take part in the
sham battle, to i>ay their way into the
grounds. This, upon investigation, I found
to have occurred in this way; It was ex
pected that the military would inarch out
to the grounds as an escort to the Presi
dent. in which case, of course, they
would have passed into the gates with
out hindrance; but when the day proved so
inclement it was decided not to have the in
fantry march out through the muddy
streets, and the}' were directed to go out on
the railroad exposition cars. This put them
out on tho opposite side of the grounds to
the main entrance. At these gates the only
instructions the gatekeepers had were to let
nobody in or out without a ticket. Tlio
managers neglected to give other orders in
reference to the military, and so it hap
pened that several of the companies had to
l>ay their way. This was of course an
awkward oversight, and the exposition
managers have promptly refunded tho
money in cases that have been brought to
their attention. If therearoaiiy companies
who have not had their money refunded, if
the Captain will make out an account of
the amount paid out and send it to the ex
position managers it will be promptly
“One of the just subjects of criticism was
the neglect of the visiting official represen
tives of other States. Friends of Gov. Tay
lor, of Tennessee, complain very much at
tlio way he was neglected, and when at a
late hour he received a personal invitation
to the club reception, which did not include
his staff officers, who came as his escort, ho
properly declined it.
“ih -ii, again, there has been some com
ment upon the way the officers of the Pied
mont Exposition monopolized the President
and his wife on public occasions, it being
urged by some that instead of the President
and Vice President of the exposition occu
pying the Presidential carriage it would
have been more fitting to have had Gov.
and Mrs. Gordon as their companions, and
to have had a more extended procession,
which should have included the entire party
accompanying the President and the visit
ing Governors of other States with their
stuff officers and the Mayor of Atlanta.
There is no lock of comment upon
the neglect of Mayor Cooper through
out the affair After the recep
tion of the General Assembly and State offi
cials in the executive office when the party
left for the exposition grounds, Gov. Gordon
was allowed to look out for himself aud fol
low along in his own private carriage. As
he made nis way through the crowded street,
however, to tiis carriage there was no lack
of honor to him there, for so many Geor
gians flocked about him to shake his hand
and look on his beloved features that it was
some little time before lie could join Mrs.
Gordon in the vehicle and follow the pro
cession. There are two sides to the ques
tion, though President Cleveland was the
guest of the exposition, and not of the State
of Georgia, and while it might have given
him a higher opinion of the ex
position managers to have seen them
Honoring their distinguished Governor,
and giving him a prominent place in
the exercises of the procession, stilt, if they
did not do so, it was nobody’s business but
their own; but, then, you know, people will
talk. The people of Georgia, however, never
allow Gov. Gordon neglected w lion they
have an opportunity to honor him, and,
both at the exposition grounds and the re
viewing stand of the torchlight procession,
he had to make brief acknowledgments of
their enthusiastic calls for him. But the ex
cuse that he was not the guest of the State
could not hold good in Mayor Cooper’s case,
for he was the guest of Atlanta, and his
visit was to the Gate City as much as to its
exposition, aud yet so far as any public
recognition goes President and Mrs. Cleve
land do not even know that Atlanta has a
Mayor. It isn’t every exposition that se
cures the President and his wife as an attrac
tion. however, and when the President and
Vice President of the exposition got them
in tiieir flower-bedecked carriage safely en
route to the fair grounds, the scene of pro
prietorship was too enchanting to allow
them to remember those little social ethics
and amenities that it might have been more
modest and creditable for them to have
borne in mind.

Our Congressman from this district left
Atlanta on the same train, in any other bur
a pleasant frame of mind. When the Presi
dent reached the Kimball House at mid
night on Monday the relentless masses that
were packed in and around the Kimball
were determined that they would call out
the President aud have a speech from him
then and there. The whole-souled Carlton
thought he would do what he could to ap
