Nkw Yokk, November . The electric
light current this morning roasted a
horse to death, threw a driver to the
street and knocked a police sergeant
senseless, as in Fleet's ease fatal current
was carried to its victims through the
telephone wire. A big pole carrying num
berless wires stands nu Fourth avenue,
near corner of Twenty-eighth street.
Sometime near 4 o'clock this morning,
one of the wires ol the telephone line fell
to the street and formed a loop across
down the track of the Fourth avenue
railroad. S ion after it fell, Thomas
Whelan, driver of the Herald delivery
wagon came along. The horse stepped
on the apparently harmless wire and in
stantly came to halt and then sprang
aside and fell. Jolt of the vehicle threw
Whelan to the street, and when he arose
to his feet received a shock which t ' ew
him prostrate into the gutter.
Regaining his feet again he undertook
to raise his horse, but as soon as he
touched the animal another shock passed
through him. He then comprehended
the cause and lay still. CitizensHttracted
to the scene noticed flashes of blue flame
emitting from the prostrate animal. The
flashes came from all parts of the horse's
body and the smell of burning flesh was
perceptible half a block away. Whelan
was assisted to his feet, but the horse
was given a wide berth. One man ran
to 35th street police station and re
ported the matter and Sergeant Al
bert McDonald and Roundsman Thomas
Cassadv hurried to the scene
the animal still emitting sparks ot tire
, and calling out all reserves a guard was
j established at points sufficiently far from
I roasting animal to warn all wayfares
from Hearing the fal spot. Sergeant
McDonald undertook to find the deadly
wire, and in making a turn around the
wagon he came in contact with it in the
. darkness. The wire struck him on the
forehead. He fell to the pavement sense
less as though he had been shot. Bouiids
man Cassady went to the rescue of his
stricken companion and when he caught
hold ot the sergeant's leg he received a
j shock which conqieHed him to release his
hold, the second ellort was more suc
cessful, and soon after being carried to
the sidewalk the sergeant slowly re
covered. His head was covered with

He was dazed and almost helpless, so
that he was obliged to go home.
About 5 o'clock, tqi to which time the
horse continued to roast slowly, it oc
curred to some one to send to the electric

While voters expressed their pleas

Coi.rMiii's, Ohio, November 5. The
election in Columbus was one of the
most quiet ever experienced in this city.
The monotony was scarcely varied by
an incident worthy of note. The weather
was superb, and the Republicans early
thought this was an omen ol success.
The rcgisti.ition machinery made the
voting one of form, rather than excite
ment. The indications are that the regis
tered vote was gotten out. The polls
did not close until 0 p. 111. Thc Republi
cans, however, are hopeful of the result.
A tally has been kept on the head of the
ticket in one precinct of the sixth ward,
.nd it shows that twenty Republicans
scratched luirakcr, and the Republican
vote is about 100 shnrt. Should other
precincts of the city show a like
illmg olf, anil strong work against the
head of the ticket, the republican defeat
in lie nothing but overwhelming.

their private apartments and began their

The opening sale of the Alliance ware
house took place yesterday, Novenilier 5,
consuming the entire afternoon, and the
success was beyond what was exiiccted.
There was a large quantity brought in
that had to lie held over for want of
room after the floor of the house had been
crowded with some 20,000 pounds of
the weed from Buncombe, Haywood and
Madison counties. Tlie tobacco wasnot,
by any means, a fair sumple of thc crop
grown in this section. Notwithstanding
the rush on the market tor the past
week, these sulcs were very satisfactory.
A Very Heavy Docket and

Mayor Blantoif scourt was very largely
attended yesterday morning, occasioned
by tlieeirculati.nl of the statement that
seventeen persons had been arrested by
thc police force the night previous upon
various and sundry charges of disregard
ofthe ordinances ot the city. And it
was a rough congregation, sure; the
hardest, his Honor himself told the re
porter, that he has hail the misfortune
to face during his administration. The
unfortunates were disposed of as fol
lows; A. Caldwell, carrying concealed wea
pons, fined $10; J. L. Carver, drunk and
resisting the officer, $10; R. Anderson,
drunk, $7.50; T.J. Ramsey, drunk and
using profanity, $5.50; J. C. White,
drunk, $5.00; Tad Moore, $5.00; Sarah
Taylor, Minnie Shipman, Sue Mays and
Hattic Sellers, prostitutes, $10; Sarah
Pierce and Mary Floyd, same oft'ence,
$5.00 each. Sarah Taylor was also
fined $10 for contempt of court.

When Tin; Citizkn is led into an error
of statement, particularly of one involv
ing character, it makes no hesitation in
promptly correcting it, as far as in its
power lays. Therefore, we make the fol
lowing correction of a publication made
by us a few days ago on authority so
official and persiimably authentic, that
we made no hesitation in accepting it as
such, and giving a publicity, needed for
the protection of our citizens. We an
nounced in our issue, on thc authority ol
Mr. W. H. Denver, chief of the Pinion
Detective Agency, that confidence men,
unknown to the authorities, were prac
ticing their arts here, and putting the
public on guard against them. In the
next issue, we announced that one ot
them had been arrested, taken before a
magistrate, and had given security for
his appearance for a farthercxamination.
That examination was had yesterday
beloie lisquire A. T. Summey, and re
sulted in the prompt and complete ex
oneration of the accused, Mr. Mitchell.
Mr. Wiley, assistant engineer ol the
Richmond and Danville road, a gentle
man long and favon.bly known to us,
was able to bear testimony to the fact,
that Mr. .Mitchell was with him all the
day on which the alleged offence was
committed, Mr. Chase, conductor on
the train on which Mr. Mitchell usually
traveled, stopped here yesterday, and
gave similar testimony that of Mr.
Wiley. There was no ' evidence, other
wise to connect the identity of Mr.
Mitchell with the oll'ences charged, and
Mr. Summey was so perfectly satisfied
with his innocence, that he disilurged
him, completely exonerated.
The testimony to the unimpeachable
good character of Mr. Mitchell was am
ple. The injury done by the publication is
one for which we are not culpable. We
gladly give the exculpation the same
publicity as that given to the publication
of the offence.

From Century Mauaine.
One of the peculiarities of the philan
thropy of the present time is the em
phasis it gives to the value of preventive
work. Never before has so much atten
tion been given to childhood or so much
importance been attached to the forma
tive period of life.
Statistics show that the country is
producing more criminals in proportion
to the population, and younger ones,
than it produced twenty-five years ago,
and the cause of this alarming stale of
things is found to be in the neglect of
childhood. It is seen that the tendencies
ol'intancy, wlictlur fir good or for evil,
crystallize into the chnrnclcrof maturity,
and the philanthropist, weary offruit
iess etl'orts at relorining, is seeking for
means of forming wisely and well.
The home is the proper place for begin
ning, but in many cases there .are practi
cal dillicultics in the way, and thouglit
i'ul people are tin ning with hope to the
mission kindergarten, which, whether re
garded from the standpoint of the educa
tor, the social relortner, or the Christian
teacher, contains possibilities of preven
tion and upbuilding not to be found in
any other available agency.
It is adapted to children of three years
if age, thus meeting the demand that in
ionic way the years below school age
shall be utilized for the highest educa
tional purposes. Tlie training of the
kindergarten in, 'link's the whole child.
Fur his hands there is delightful occupa
tion, through which he learns to love
work and lo respect himself as a pro
ducer of that which is useful and beauti
ful ; there is well-directed activity for the
busy brain; and, above all, the higher
faculties of love, joy, sympathy, aud
reverence are brought into constant and
During t lie last decade interest in the
mission kindergarten has been growing,
until there is now ill the country scarcely
a city that has not one or more such
institutions. More than ten years ago
Mrs. Ouincy Shaw began the work in
Boston by establishing in the worst
quarters of tlie city about twenty
kindergartens, into which the children
of the lowest classes were gathered.
Well-trained teachers were employed,
md the whole enterprise was under the
wise and efficient superintendence of two
kindergarttiers. It is the testimony of
lite police that tile moral aspect of whole
neighborhoods has been improved by
these institutions. That the system is
believed lo have a higheducational value
is proved by the fact that after so
thorough a trial il was last vear adopted
as a part of the public-school system of
I hat cil v.
In Philadelphia, a few years since, a
similar movement was started as a re
sult ofthe thorough work ofthe Society
for the Organization of Charity. It was
found that, in the homes and haunts of'
the pauper and criminal classes, children
were growing up in appalling conditions
of ignorance, idleness, and vice. As it
was lelt that the only remedy for exist
ing evils and the only hope lor the future
lay in vigorous preventive work, kinder
gartens were established in every ward
of the city, xind the satisfaction they
gave led to their adoption as a sub
primary department of the public
In San Francisco, mission kindergar
tens, established as an oll'set to the
hoodliunism which threatened the safety
of society, are now the most popular of
all the philanthropies. In Chicago, St.
Paul, Cincinnati, and Brooklyn there are
efficient associations of this kind, and ill

New York has many of these missions;
bill with a tenement house population of
1, loo. Iioo, of whom more than 12,000
.ire under five years of age, and with a
constant influx of the lowest class of
foreigners, it is felt that this is a time of
emergency to meet which extraordinary
efforts are necessary, and a movement
has been started looking lo theestablish
ment of kindergartens throughout the

An Able Article on tills Import
We call attention to an article from the
Century published on this page. We owe
much, very much to the kind, sympa
thetic, energetic ladies who are making
every ellort to extend the system here.
Il is already partially in use, and with
happy results. I'lion the interest mani
fested by parents depends tile success of
the further efforts to add to the numbers
of those who are to be brought under the
beneficent influence of the system. "Just
as thc twig is bent, the tree's inclined;"
and Ihe future of the child hangs upon
the fact whether it is started on its path
way in life right or wrong. The kinder
garten system is a kindly, aflectionuie
one, and enlists the interest of intelligent
curiosity without putting too heavy a
strain upon the mental faculties; nnd
while there never has been, nor ever will be
found, a royal road to learning, the road
may be made much more smooth and
pleasant than thc old time way, though
compatible with educational training.
Wc simply introduce thc subject now to
direct attention to the .article referred to.
