    Presents an extract describing the invention by 'Somebody in Germany' of a 'machine for enabling men in Parliament to vote as quick as lightning'. Thinks that the machine will 'save much loss of time' in voting but suggests that it would be improved if it enabled parliamentarians to vote from their homes. Notes that this would shorten speeches.
