will be defeated The district is Republi

election of Marshall Phlpps, the Repub

There was nn air of deep disappoint
ment about the Bellevue-Stratford today.
Thomas A. Edison, "the grand old man
of electricity," sent a telegram to the
Electric Vehicle Association of America,
now in convention at the hotel, to tho
effect that he would not bo able to attend
But that disappointment was but brief,
a momentary one. For no matter how
long the distance which may separate tho
great wizard of electricity from his col
leagues In the world of science, delegates
said there was a certain undercurrent, an
electrical force, which seemed to bind
them to him, a force which connected the
Ingenious mechanism of Edison's brain
with the hearts of his friends and ad
mirers, who cherish for him a feeling
of gratitude and admiration as one of the
greatest benefactors of mankind.
And so. In spite of his absence, today
the delegates at the convention observed
Edison Day. For on October 21, 1673, Just
S5 years ago today. Edison gave to the
world the first carbon filament incandes
cent lamp, a thread of charred coal that
glowed il hours In a vacuum bulb From
that Initial success, in itself attained only
after many months of patient labor and
self-denial, has been evolved the most
perfect lllumlnant that the world has
ever known, the Mazda lamp.
In commemoration of that historic 21st
day of October, JS79, In recognition of the
vast benefits that his great Invention has
conferred on mankind, and in admiration
for the genius that created not only the
incandescent lamp, but the entire light
ing in 'ustrj of our present day. the dele
gates of the convention will today stand
up In tribute to the brain that has done
so much to make the world a better place
to live In.
The following tribute has been paid by
Walderaar Kaempffert, the great elec
trical engineer, to Thomas Edison on the
occasion of today's anniversary
"His work, nnd particularly the Inven
tion of the electric Incandescent lvmp,
must forever remain an Inspiration to
mankind The long weeks and months of
tedious experimenting, the dauntless
patience that bravely struggled on after
each momentary defeat, and the resource
fulness thut turned even failure to ac
tount have perhaps never been equaled,
and certainly never surpassed. In the his
tory of human achievement.
"No wonder that tills man enriched his
time with one of Its most precious Inven
tions the Edison lamp with a form of
illumination so wonderfully cheap and
cilicient thnt it has enabled the teacher
and the printer to extend the Influence of
civilization where It has never been felt
The following laurel is placed upon the
brow of Edison by another wizard of
electricity. Charles P. S Stelnmetz.
"The first time I met Edison vn In
1813, at the International Electrical Con-
1 riDUte tO Work Of" the In- Introduced me to him. nnd Edison, Joklng-
l pointed at me, oald, 'pure theurv ,'
pointing at Elckeme.ver 'theory nnd pi.ie
tlce1 nnd at hlms-clf 'pure practice ' This
Is tho attitude Edison has always taken,
declaring himself n mcie practical man.
nnd tho newspaper men have expanded
on this nnd so created the popular be
lief that Edison does not know anything
about theory nnd science, but merely e
perlments nnd trle3 anything he or nnv
bods else can think of. There Is nothing
more untrue than this It is true, Edison
never went to any college but he know a
more about the sublecta taught In col
leges than most college men From my
experience I consider Edison today as the
man best informed In all fields of human
John Wannmaker today paid tribute to
the genius of the "wizard." He said:
"The conquerors of tho world aie not
all warriors. The Inventors of the world
are ofttlmes conquerors. Thirty-ilvc ears

this anniversary greeting to his old friend,
went down to Menlo Park In October,
1ST9, to see the wonderful lamp exhibited
to them by the modest oung Edison.
"What Mr. Edison has achieved to
date places his name upon tho roll:
"Today all America inscribes upon that
honor roll In letters of brightest light:

anv thing we ever saw, because
people nowadaa want lots of
room In their cars and because the
new Hup gives it to them.
Five passengers ride with comfort

There's plenty of room to stretch, In

the passengers are extra tall.
Really, I don't see how any man or

Another thing- the cushions are deep

costing a good deal more.
With high seat backs, well tufted,
