There Is trouble browing among the
Democrats of the Fourth Legislative
district that will probably result In two
delegations going to tile Democratic
state convention to teprescnt the? dis
trict. Lan Satin day a convention was held
at Olyphant, pursuant to a call Issued
by Hon. T. J. Duggan, the chairman of
the district standing committee. At
thK as has heietoforo been announced
In Tho Ti Ibune, four state delegatrw
and as many alternates weie chosen.
Only a small number of delegates at
tended the convention nnd many of tho
Democrats of tho district claim the
convention was of the snap vatlety,
and tofuse to iccognlze the work done
Accordingly, another convention has
been called for next Friday afternoon
at a o'clock In O'Rrlen's hall, Olyphant.
The primal les ate to bo held tomorrow.
TIiIh call Is signed by Thomas P. Mun
ley, who claims to be chahman of the
district committee, and John Rog.iu, of
Olyphant, the regular secietary. This
convention also proposes to elect state
delegates. Hon. T. J. Duggan, who is
sued tho call for last Saturday's con
venton, said yfcMeidny:
SAYS IT WAS Hi:c,ULAR.
"The convention I called was the only
regular one that will ho held In tho dls

in the interest of Donnelly and Hyan,

"Theie Is nothing In thnt story,"
said Colonel F. J. Fltzslmmons yes
terday. The colonel Is n member of
the state executive committee and one
of the men who attended the confer

week ago which has ctoated so much
talk throughout the state and which
was followed by the leslgnatlon of

and the election of Foimer Governor
NO FACTIONAL FIGHT.
"Tho leslgnatlon of Donnelly makes
It ceitain that there will be no fac
tional light In the coming state con
vention," continued tho colonel. "I
believe It will be a harmonious gather
ing that will nominate Democrats for
state olllces. I believe the fusion Idea
will not be looked upon with favor by
the coming convention. From what I
inn Itnin tho .sentiment in favor of
Coray, of Luzerne, for state tieasurer
on an alliance between the Insui gents
and Democints will not be stiong.
Judge Harmon Yerkos, of Bciks coun
ty, will bo nominated for Justice of
the Supreme mint."
It is veiy piohablo that the Lacka

cffoit to have next ycai's convention
come to this city.
PANAMA'S COSTLY STRAW.
You Mny Pay $150 for a Fashionable
Hat This Season.
r'lom the Now oik un
An export cannot make a Panama hat
of the very host quality in less than
seven or eight mouths and even tho
hats that ate not so lino aie a matter
of months. Women do the w caving,
the men never having been able Co
master the art In Its peifectlon. Thu
Industry Is common In almost all the
South American countries, but the
lion's share of the best Panama straw
comes f 1 oin Venezuela
The straw Is woven fiom a marsh
gr.uss, and tho eiuallty of the finished
piorluct depends as much upon the
quality of the grass as upon tho work.
For the best straw, the glass Is caic
fully soiled and selected, mil the
finest stalks being chosen. Then the
woman who Is to weave It sepiats her
self down beside a big eai thenwaro Jar
of water, takes a handful of grass: nnd
begins her vvoik, under tho sin fare of
the water. Kveiy Inch of tho hat Is
woven under watei, this care being
necessary In older to keep the glass
moist and prevent Its splitting and
breaking dining tho plaiting.
Day after elay. anU (month after
month, the woman sits by the water
Jar. working with Inllnite care; and,
In seven, eight, or mote piobably nine
months, a hat Is toady for the Ameri
can or Kngllshtnan vvbo has money to
bum. Few Panama hats of line quality
aie vvoin In South Aineilca. To be
sure, little of anything Is worn by n
largo part of the population, but even
tho hat wearng element cannot affotd
the luxury of fine Panama.
In fact, few of the best hats ever
find their way into the general market.
They aie picked up by individuals.
English nnd American travelleis, of.
fleers on Hading ships or men-of-war,
foielgn consuls or trndeis at home, and
of coutso, the output In compatatively
small. It has been smaller than ever
within lecent years, for the demand
has not been great enough to encour
age the industiy, nnd it has been with
tho South American straw weaveis as
with our Indian basket weaveis. The
younger generation has not taken to
tho art so kindly as Its foiheais did,
and there ate few of the joung women
who can compete with their giand
motheis in weaving skill.

BIGGEST POWER PLANT.
Located, Not at Niagara, but at Mas-
scna, N. Y., on tho St. Lawrence.
Capacity 100,000 Horse Power.
From the Omaha lice.
As a since of power supply to the
Pan-American exposition so much Is
heard of Nlagaui as to establish a
general impression that It Is tho most
powerful Houico of electric rurient in
the world. This Is not so, Nlagata Is
outdone in this respect by tho St. Law
rence, thnt Mist tunnel which conveys
the vvnteis of the great lakes to tho
sea a river which from Its head at the
Thousand Islands tlows with such foico
thnt It forms a continuous waterfall for
fully IT? mllos T1110. It is not a sheer
descent like Xlngnia, but a general In
cline which lenlly represents far mine
force than tho cnoimous power of Lake
Near tho little town of Massenn, In
tho far northern corner of New York
state, t.ono men hno been nt work for
Keveial years past constructing what
englneei.s s-iy is tho largest power canal
in tho vvoild. It Is piactically complet
od anil a portion of tho St. Lawrence
now tlows through It to tho Grace
river. Though only about thiee miles
in length, the canal Is ISO feet wide and
of sulllclent depth to provide what ex
perts say is 60 foot ahead vertical
descent of the water at the power
house. This power house, which Is "00
fvt In length nnd constructed of stone,
will contain machinery which will actu
ally generate mote electilc cuirrnt than
N'lagata when It is completely lnstnlled.
Fifteen sots of turhlne water wheels,
o.u h containing six wheels, nie set in
what might be called the basement of
tho power station. The sets aic
separated Into thiee palis, and tuin
upon horizontal shafts. Kach set of
wheels Is connected with an electrical
aeneiator, which will develop power
equal to tho stiongth of fl.OOO horses.
Although it Is claimed that tho Niagara
goneintors are of the same callhie,
electricians state that tho St. Lawience
appaiatus represents fiom 100 to 200
mote horse-power per bet of turbines.
An idea can he gained of tho size of
the geneintors when It is stnted that
each weighs ITS tons. Tho rim or "field"
Is so large that when under consti no
tion at tho wotks of tho Westlnghouse
company In Pittsburg three gymnastic
woikmen stood upon each other's, shoul
dels, and the top mnn wai Just able
to touch tho Inside of the upper ilm
with his hand. Kach ilm Is thiee feet
In width and in consti notion millions
of feet of who vveio icqulted.
In setting up the genet mors in the
powei house tho gloat wheels weie ar
langed In a sort of tandem fashion,
one following tho other. To place them
In posltlun a mammoth tiavellng crane
opeiated by electilclty was placed In
position, ti oiling along nn overhead
lailtoad. This crane can lift S3 tons
at one time. It held tho parts of the
geneiatots while they weie being fast
ened together. The shafts 1 evolve in,
steel beatings so Iaige that a mnn of
medium size can crawl thiough tho
boring made to receive the shafts end.
Kach genetator Is "coupled," as It Is
tonned, directly to a set of tin blue
wheels, which furnish the water power
to 1 evolve It. This means that tho
shaft turning tho tuiblnccs Is continued
on thiough the hub of tho geneintor,
and thus no bolt Is lequlied. In fact.
It Is doubtful If an combination of
lenther or 1 libber could ho made which
would i evolve these cnoimous discs;
safely at tho speed lciiulied.
Although when all the appatatus Is
Installed tho power house will genei
ato cut rent equal to 100,000 hoi so power,
such Is the simplicity of Its contiol
that but one man Is lequlied to st.ut
and stop the machinery. In tho centet
of tho building, on a laNod platfonn,
Is what is known as tho controlling
station, to which are attached a num
ber of mm bio slabs with kes, such as
aie oidlnailly used by a telegiaph opet
ator. Kach key connects with n seilts
of air valves and pistons, w 01 king what
aio called switch stands, one to each
getieiator. A chemical battery furnish
es an electilc curient to move the nlr
valves and pistons. They convey the
necessniy foico to opeiato tho switches,
which break or lestoto the electilc ctn
lent, which In turn stints the turbines.
This foi c-o Is generated from a set ot
thiee smaller turbines, coupled to gen
eiatots. which aie calleel "exciters,"
and aio merely used to stop and start
the main plant, like the steam cylinder
which moves the stalling wheel on the
engine of nn ocean steamship. The
switches aio so close togethoi on the
contt oiling stand that the opeiator inn
sit In a chair and tench one with his
linger. Merely on the piessuio of a
key the 5,000 hoise power It controls
ceases to woik Another piessme and
In a moment It Is again producing cut
lenr. Oidlnarlly a great power-pioduclng
plant Is located in some center of in
dustry vvheie power Is In demand for
many put poses. Theiefoie, It seems, on
111 st lonsldetntion, strange that the
greatest electilc plant In tho woild
should he located In n little town far
fiom any consldoiable center of popu
lation. Hut tho company which has
established tho plant believes thnt a
gieu.t city will grow up mound It, In-
dustilal piojects being diawn thither
by tho cheapness of the power. While
It Is expected that tho plant will light
tho city of Ottnwa. Ont.. eighty miles
distant, nnd opeiate Its stieet railway
system, tho power will be principally
used for manufacturing, and alieady
several eompanes havo made ar
rangements to build In thu vicinity.
One will manufactiuo nlumnlum, which
depends upon cheap electric power for
Its pinductlon nt n low cost. Tho St.
Lawieneo Power company, which con
structed tho canal and station, has
spent $6,000,000 on it. It is teally an
International company, as both London
and New people are stockholder.
