REMINISCENCES OF SEDAN. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
REMINISCENCES OP SEDAN. Apropos of the celebration of the German triumph' the Militar-Wockenhlait, of Berlin, publishes some new historical documents in connection with the capitulation of Sedan. The most interesting (writes the Times corres pondent) are extracts from the diary of the then Lieutenant - Colonel Bronsavt von Sehellendorff, who was afterwards Prussian Minister of War. and a report taken from the shorthand notes of Captain von Nostiz of the negotiations on the conditions for the capitula tion of Sedan, which took place at Donchery during the night of September 1, 1870. The third document is Count Bismark's report to the Kiug on the negotiations. This document, however, is not new, sis it was published almost in extenso by the Official Gazette on September 12, 1870. The diary of Lieutenant-Colonel Sehellendorff gives an account of his vide into Sedan in order to summon the French to sur render. On his way thither he was informed that meanwhile the white flag had been hoi...
"HARNESSING NIAGARA." SOME PARTICULARS OF A GREAT ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
'HARNESSING NIAGARA.' SOME PARTICULARS OF A GliEAT ENTERPRISE. In several of the magazines for September there are articles describing the great work of ' Harnessing Niagara,' which has now been so successfully carried out. Mr. George Forbes, who was engaged as electrical con sulting engineer, describes in Blackwood what has been accomplished. THE POWER OF THE FALLS. Mr. Carter, of New York, in an oration at the opening of Niagara, Park some time ago, said the sense which responded to the magnificent motion of the Falls was the sense of power. But few, perhaps, have any adequate idea of what the extent of that power really is : — 'Nearly 6,000 cubic miles of water, pouring down from the upper lakes with 90,000 square miles of reservoir area, reach this gorge of the Niagara River at a point where its extreme width of one mile is by islands reduced to two channels of only 3,800 feet. Here, in less than half a mile of rapids, the Niagara river falls fifty-five feet, and then with a dep...
AN ENGINEERING "MONSTROSITY." [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
AN ENGINEERING ''MON STROSITY.' .» There seems at the present time, says the Architect, to be an engineering mania for tha construction of monstrosities, if t-uch a word may be permissible. According to the latest! rumor the Paris Exhibition of 1900 will con tain one of the most useless aud ridiculous engineering schemes of the present day. It is rumored that French engineers propose con structing for the exhibition a gigantic tube, reaching 700 ft. high, and having a diameter of 105 ft. Inside this will be an elevator in the form of a balloon, in the car of which pas sengers will be conveyed to the top, the cat being made to swing considerably to imitate tho effects experienced in a genuine aerial ascent. At the top of the column, the air, mechanically exhausted, will give those in the balloon some idea of what aeronauts suffer when they rise to high altitudes, owing to the absence of breathable atmosphere. A stop of a few seconds will be made at the top of the tube, and then the c...
BULL FIGHTING IN SOUTHERN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
BULL FIGHTING IN SOUTHERN FRANCE. The Paris correspondent of the London Chronicle furnishes the following account of a bull fight which took place on a recent Sunday at Aries : — Under a torrid sun, and before benches filled with thousands of Arlesians and visitors, the spectacle began at 3 o'clock. The first bull, a magnificent Spaniard, large and active, was taken in hand by Alejandro Alvarado. The beast at once attacked several horses, received some wounds from the picadors, and was killed with a single sword thrust. The matador, abandoning his niuleta, attacked the animal behind, and struck it as it turned. Tliis was considered a tame affair. The pool of blood having been covered with sawdust, a Becoud Spanish bull was turned into the arena. This ouo was as fine and even more active an animal than the first. In a moment he unhorsed a picador, wounded him, and brought down the horse by a ripping thrust in the groin. The toreadors fell back, but were uiffed on by the vigorously ap...

Mail News. LONDON TABLE TALK. London, August 23, 1895. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
Jftail Jfoto0. LONDOU TABLK TALK; ? fFrom our Special Correspondent] London, August 23, 1895. Though the art of obstruction can— thanks to the closure— no longer be carried to the lengths which marked the famous sessions of 1878-81 it is still possible for an old Parliamen tary band to abuse the legitimate formB of the House to its great inconvenience. This was the unpleasant truth which Mr. Timothy Healy endeavored with considerable success to bring home to the Government on Monday last. His eroectation was no doubt that the ignorance of the new Speaker would materially assist his efforts. But in this the member for Louth proved out of his reckoning. Though Mr. Gully occupied the chair for over 11 hours with only 20 minutes intermission for a chop at 8 he was cool, wary, and unexpectedly acquainted with the great Parliamentary mystery of 'order.' Every attempt of the floughty Tim to strain the forma of the House Mr. Speaker nipped promptly in tho bud ; in fact it was Boon recognise...
