on the practical demonstration at the World's Fair of the capabilities of third-rail electric traction on the Intramural Elevated Railway, and the system is rapidly extending so as to include all elevated city roads. A few years will doubtless see the great change accomplished. The motor-car, or car propelled by its own motors, has also been introduced upon standard steam roads to a limited extent as a supplement to steam traction. The earliest of these installations are the one at Nantasket, Mass., and that between Hartford and New Britain, in Connecticut. A number of special high-speed lines, using similar plans, have gone into operation in recent years. The three largest and most powerful electric locomotives ever put into service are those which are employed to take trains through the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad tunnel at Baltimore. They have been in service about seven or eight years, and are fully equal in power to the large steam locomotives used on steam roads. There

intended a reformation in church and commonwealth. Before these disclosures Oldham had behaved with much insolence, abusing the governor and Captain Standish, calling them rebels and traitors, and, when proved guilty, he attempted to excite a mutiny on the spot. Lyford burst into tears and confessed that he feared he was a reprobate. Both were ordered to leave the colony, but Lyford, humbly begging to stay, asking forgiveness and promising good behavior, was reinstated. Oldham went to Nantasket, with some of his adherents, and engaged in traffic with the Indians. Lyford was soon detected again in seditious work and expelled from the colony. He joined Oldham. They afterwards lived at Hull and Cape Anne, and Oldham represented Watertown in the popular branch of the Massachusetts government in 1634. He made an exploring journey to the site of Windsor, on the Connecticut River, the next year, which was followed by the emigration to that region in 1635. While in a vessel at Block

On the 6th of July, 1631, a small ship of sixty tons, called the Plough, came into Nantasket with ten passengers from London, having a patent to Sagadahock; afterwards called the Ligonia t so well that his sentence was remitted, and he was restored to the ministry. Oldham went to Nantasket, whence he returned the next Spring and again abused the authorities, whereupon a second senteboard a shallop, and so convayed to Wessaguscus shoare, and staid at Massachusctts, trading at Nantasket. Not long after, being upon a vessel that was wrecked on Cape Cod in a violent storm, he wa country, and from the mouth of Abousett River, 3 miles into the country.

Roger Conant, having already left New Plymouth for Nantasket, through a brother in England, who was a friend of White, obtained the agency of the adventure. 1625 A year's experience proved to the company, that their specusula; the island now known as East Boston was occupied by Samuel Maverick, son of a pious nonconformist minister of the West of England, himself a prelatist. At Nantasket and further south, stragglers lingered near the sea side, attracted by the gains of a fishing station and a petty trade in beaver. The Puritan ruler visited in heir church with Maverick and Warham for ministers, and who in a few years were to take part in calling into being the commonwealth of Connecticut, were found at Nantasket, where they had landed just before the end of May. Winthrop ascended the Mystic a few miles, and on the nineteenth took back to Salem a favorable report of the
