The Phonograph at Philadelphia Repeats Airs
Played and Sang in New York
jSew YortK Feb G A trial of the
phonograph in connection with the long
distance telephone was made last night
between the Franklin Institute in Phil-
adelphia and theoperating room of the
American telephone and telegraph com-
pany here Cornetist Theodore lloth
and Miss Effie Stewart soprano of St
Patricks cathedral sang and played to
an audience 100 miles distant Hen
Hoth played a Tyrolean song through
the telephone and when lie
had finished Mr Waugeman announced
that he had beenheard all over Franklin
institute in Philadelphia with which part
of Casta Diva from Torina
through the telophono in the same way
The phonograph was then connected with
the transmitter and the air Herr Hoth
had blown into it was telephoned to the
Franklin institute where it excited even
more applause than the original perform-
ance While Miss Stewart sang and
the phonograph held forth those
present closed one ear and listened with
the other at the telephone to the sounds
as they were reproduced in the Franklin
institute These sounds had been re-
ceived in a phonograph at the institute
and when it vas set going those at the
telephones could heav the music which
had been played m their presence half an
hour before repeated exactly at 100 miles
distance Miss Stewart did not confine
her singing to Philadelphia but sang

were on the Boston circuit A dispatch

ence listened to the music there and pro-
nounced the experiment a great success

The Manager of tlie Times on the Witness
Stand
Loxdox Feb 19 The courtroom was
crowded today when the Parnell com-
mission resumed its sitting Messrs
Henry Labouehere John Morley Rt
Hon George Shaw LeFevere and other
prominent persons were present
Mr Maudel manager of the Times
was the first witness He was orossex
amined by the counsel for the Paruell
ites He declined to say whether he re-
garded the letters of the 9th of January
to the loth of May as the only important
ones among the first live which Mr
Houston secretary of the Irish Loyal
and Patriotic Union handed to him
Presiding Judge Hannen sharply re-
buked the witness for his refusal
Mr Mandel in reply to further ques-
tions said tiie letters should be taken as a
whole and that as a whole they were
compromising
pelled to answer
Presiding Justice Hannen
the counsel was not ontitled
witness to make inquiries
question him as to anything
GEiorAxr
Mr Mandel said the
Times statement that knives and fire
arms were kept in the league office in
London was based upon information sup-
plied to the writer of the artiole in which
the statement was made He did not
know directly who wrote the article and
he was not bound to tell it if he did know
itv The editor of the Times was respon-
sible for the statements made in the pa-
per and therefore counselwas not enti-
tled to demand by force the names of
contributors
At this point in the proceedingsParnell
warmly enveloped in a long cloak
though the weather was mild entered
the court room and took a seat at the
solicitors table
Mr Asquith of counsel for Parnell
urged that he was entitled to demand the
author of the article because he was
bound to test the truth of such a grave
statement
Sir Charles Russell supported Mr As
quith arguing that the question was
relevant
The court ruled that Mr Asquith was
entitled to investigate this matter in
order to ascertain the foundation of the
statement
The witness said he could not name
the writer without making inquiries
Mr Asquith asked the witness to ob-
tain the names of the writer of the
arth8intheTimcs
Mr Mandel appealed to the bench for
directions as to whether he was com
ruled that
to ask the
but might
within his
knowledgo in connection with the specific
facts
The manager of the Times finally said
Mr Flanagan wrote the articles that ap-
peared on March 7 and March 10 1887
Hehad forgotten who wrote the others
Parnells alleged letter to Pigott was
then produced Presiding Justice Han
nen asked whether it was admitted that
the letter was genuine and Sir Charles
Russell replied Oh no
AttorneyGeneral Webster then called
Mr Inglis the writing expert to the
stand whereupon there was a sharp
encounter Sir Charles Russell contend-
ing that justice demanded that the source
of the letter should be revealed before ho
was called upon to crossexamine the
expert
Presiding Judge Hannen thought
inquiry should now be made as to the
source of the letters
The commission then adjourned

William 6 Brien was resumed at Tralee

Healey his counsel to apologize for the
language the latter had used to Col
Turner during the progress of the case
yesterday OBrien also declined to
make any further defense against the
charges brought against him under the
crimes act The magistrate thereupon
sentenced OBrien to six months im-
prisonment without hard labor

Professor Oeficken
Berltx Feb 19 The Post in a semi-
official note tonight announces that fur-
ther publications directed against Prof es
sor Geftcken are about tobe made and
expresses hope that they will have the
effeot of throwing such light on
other persons and circumstances
that a complete insight into

may be gained Professor Geffcken de-
nies the truth of the report that he in-
tends to publish a pamphlet dealing with
the trial

The Cabinet Crisis Apparently Par From a
Settlement
Paeis Feb 19 In spite of combined
negotiations the settlement of the
cabinet crisis appears as distant as ever
The failure of M Moliuo indicates the
absolute impossibility of forming a
cabinet on opportunist lines It
was to demonstrate this that
President Carnot insisted that
M Meline attempt the task saying that
if he could not succeed in his group no
one could do better President Carnot
today offered the premiership to M
Tirard only to meet with another re-
fusal He then sent M Tirard to
summon M Meline whom he
urged to make another effort un-
der fresh conditions M Meline
steadily declined to undertake the task
The difficulty of the position may bo
realized from the fact that an obscure
politician named Provet was afraid to
Melines proposed min
Later President Carnot sura
Magnin a former
a well accredited
the president strongly
a cabinet formed
mainly of senators concluding that such
a minister would have a better prospect
of securing general support than a gov-
ernment composed of the more pro-
nounced members of the chamber
ExPresident Grevy has been taken
suddenly ill It is feared that his con-
stitution will break down The members
of his family are very anxious
