"BY CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
liOXDOX, September 7 Copyright,
Edison has civen over his original plan of
Returning from Paris to New York without
Visiting London, and will arrive in this
town in a day or two, accompanied by Sena
tor William Maxwell Evans. Edison has
had a reception in Paris such as no Ameri
can or any other foreigner has ever received.
During the ihree weeks that he has been in
the gay capital he has only escaped big din
ners two or three nights, and he is said to
be in the condition of a Strasbourg goose as
a result of the over-hospitality of his ad
luirers. Paris enthused over Edison as only
Paris can. Crowds have followed him in
tbe streets, and his appearance at the
Exposition has been the invariable signal
for a blockade which only the police could
More. As his picture has been published
in all the illustrated papers and his photo
graphs are on sale in the shop windows, his
lace became well known and he has been
unable to appear anywhere in public with
out being recognized. The newspapers have
published his goings and comings with
jeater attention even than they devoted to
the Shah, and Mrs. Edison and her sister,
Miss Miller, have been described with much
detail by the Parisian flaneurs.
BELIEVED ALMOST AKTTIIIXa.
Tbe French public considers Edison is the
cole inventor of vhe telegraph, telephone,
electric light and even electricity itself, if
sot the solar system as well, and when
J"igaro gravely announced this week that he
bad just completed an adjustment for the
phonograph whereby conversation in English
was translated into French, halt Paris be
lieved it, and Edison worship has in
creased a hundred fold since. The atten
tion he has received has not' been
an unmixed pleasure to Edison.
His intention in visiting Paris was
to make an exhaustive studv of the mechan
ical exhibits at the Exposition, instead of
which he has been one of the principal ex
hibits himself, while the crowd that have
followed him! and the festivities that were
thrust upon -him have prevented his giving
tbe protracted attention to what would have
interested him most. Frank E. Upton,
President of the Edison Electric Lamp
Company at East Newark, and Eugene H.
Xewis, of New Tork, who were with the
Edison party in Paris, arrived in Londbn
this week, and Upton sailed for America on
the Saale Thursday.
SOTPOSED PATENT PLAXS.
Lewis, who is Edison's lawyer, and has
eonducted most of his recent patent suits,
Remains here to meet Edison and Evarts, a
circumstances showing that Edison has
changed his plans, and will come to Lon
don, and that he is to be accompanied by
Mr. Evarts, whose ostensible purpose in vis
iting Paris was to have his eyes treated by
an eminent French occulist, gives rise to a
rumor affecting electric lighting interests in
America. The rumor is that Edison and
the two lawvers visit London for the pur
pose of having a consultation with her
Majesty's ministers about the prospect of
Canada's being included in the patent con
vention of 1883, which governs the patent
laws of the United States and Great Britain,
with a view to its effect upon Edison's high
resistance filament patent now in litigation
in Canada. England reserves the right by
the terms of this convention to include any
of her colonies under its provisions, and the
clause that is supposed to interest the Edi
son people provides that the importation of
a patented article from one of the States
bonnd bv the convention to another, shall
sot invalidate the patent
I1TTEEESTIXG LEGAL COXIEST.
The filament patent was first taken out in
Canada, and according to Canadian law an
article patented in that country and manu
factured in another country caunot be im
ported into Canada without invalidating the
patent. Whether the Edison filament
patent has been thus invalidated is now
being considered in the Canadian courts,
and the representatives of other American
electric lighting companies, who will be
affected by the decision, believe that an
effort is to be made to bring Canada into the
convention that binds Great Britain, in
order to take advantage of the clause giving
the right of importation between the States
bonnd by the convention.
This would, at least, give an opportunity
to gain time by bringing an intricate legal
question into the courts. Lewis professes
utter ignorance of any such move on the
part of Edison and Evarts, however.

Newt Yoek, September!. The Sun pub
lishes a letter from John L. Sullivan in
which he announces his intention of
running for Congress on the Democratic
ticket. It is his ambition to represent a
Boston district, and he states that with such
a high ambition he trusts he will in the fut

bis letter he states that any man who doubts
his popularity with the American people
has only got to travel about with him and
Ret rid of his doubts. Sullivan does not
doubt his qualifications, as he says in con
cluding his letter:
In my travels about this country and Europe
I ha e had as much experience m public speak

getting a bearing in Congress or in making
people pay attention to what 1 Ray. A man wbo
can quiet a crowd in Madison Sqnaro Garden
as I have done can make his presence felt in
Congress or anywhere else on earth. I there

political life. This communication is drawn up
in consultation with friends and with their ad
vice, and is the longest that I have ever ad
dressed to any paper. I shall be obliged to ou

Republicans of Ohio felt themselves wroned
when General Logan failed to stand in the Sen

corrupt election to that body. They were in
grief for him rather than angry with him, and
when he died they were forgetful of all but his

cere than they. It is regrettable that his son
demands attention to the error that clouded
the close of his Senatorial career, bnt a gen

Edward Mnir, a poor man, was taken sick

shortly afterward, Mnjr, whifo irrational from
fever, got up in the night and wandered 30
miles from the poorhouse, freezing bis face,

and cared for bv a farmer, and both feet wero
amputated. When Muir recovered he brought
suit aralnst the poorhouse keeper, wbo allowed
his charge to escape, but was defeated. On

Three men, who bavo been engaged in

found by the United States grand jury. They
are Samuel Sanborn, attorney-at-law; his
brother, Clarence Sanborn, architect and
patent agent, and Edward L. Aiken, who claims
to be a dairyman. These men were tho man
agers of the Pioneer, Globe and Occidental
patent agencies. They are alleged to have re
ceived large amounts of money through false
representations The Pioneer Patent Agency
was established in 1S75. They claimed to have
unrivaled facilities for Belling new patents on
the Pacific coast and to control advertising
space. They sent circulars to all pateutees of
new inventions, offering to place the matter
before tbe people west of the Rockies for 550,

the parties. Many victims were thus roped in.

PROM THE LOOMS OF ENGLAND AND
AUFMANNS' CUSTOM TAILORING DEPARTMENT
Men who are at all careful about their personal appearance cannot fail to profit by an inspection of the elegant and exten-l
sive combination of Fall and Winter Suitings, Overcoatings and Trouserings exhibited in our Custom Tailoring
Department It has always been a matter of pride with us to place on our counters such cloths as will best serve -
the double purpose of wear and beauty, and, while our ettorts neretoiore nave proved entirely bausiaciory to
our army of customers, we must confess that the stock we have gleaned from the best harvest fields of
Europe and America this season overtops by one hundred per cent anything we have ever shown.
It is simply fascinating. You are invited to come in and look over these magnificent groupings
of the best products of the world, so far as clothing to order is concerned. There is here
for you to look upon every shade and every color of cloth; every combination that the '
genius ot the inventor or designer couia nit upon, ana you must ue uuuu tu mc
beautiful and all that is tasteful if you cannot find something here to suit even
the wildest dreams of your fancy. Among the celebrated fabrics we show are
Clay's Worsteds, Martin's Broad Wales, John Taylor's Trouserings, Blarney Tweeds,
Genuine Scotch Cheviots, fine Silky Corkscrews, West of England Cloths, etc. nfact
picture in one group, before you come, everything beautiful you have seen and when you'll gaze
on the stock gathered here you'll say your mind s picture is not near as fascinating as the one we ask ' '
you to look upon. How about prices? 'Well we always feel at ease in regard to our prices; they are
always "right." No merchant tailor can even begin to equal our marvelous values in fine Fall Suits made-tc-
order for $30 and $35, or Pantaloons for $6 and $8: Certainly none have done so yet. The small tailoring shops
with their dozen or so patterns make frantic efforts, but like climbing the famous greased pole, they slide back into
their abodes. Depend upon it, it will pay you to leave your measure here for your new fall apparel. It takes but one triaJ
order to convince you of our superior facilities.

These goods were bought at the lowest possible cash prices and they will be sold without one cent of profit This
may seem startling, but it is true. We are compelled to do business for glory because, owing to our present building ope
rations, we have not the necessary room to show and display the goods. If you're wise, you'll make the best of it by
making your purchases thus early in the season.
