MAIS ENERGIA ESTRANHA
AVISTADA—
DESTA VEZ EM GETTYSBURG!


Os leitores podem recordar as descrições das perturbações peculiares relatadas em Manassas, Virginia, seguida pela batalha em Bull's Run após o início da rebelião. Como as tropas da União foram surpreendidos com o ataque rebelde e começaram sua retirada desordenada de Centerville, observadores civis falavam de acontecimentos incomuns no campo desocupado da batalha.

      Descrições variaram de "relâmpago em um céu claro" para "deformação da paisagem", como se pode ver através da curvatura de uma lente de vidro. Enquanto o fenômeno foi inicialmente rejeitado como um devaneio, devido à falta de familiaridade civil com a pompa de um envolvimento militar moderno, ou talvez uma febre provocada devido à natureza quente do dia, as histórias desses eventos, embora variadas, foram abundantes. Alguns chegaram ao ponto de creditar essa anomalia não confirmada com a perseguição dos rebeldes na retirada das forças da União.

      Parece que estes relatórios civis iniciais podem não ter sido tão improváveis quanto se pensava inicialmente. Outra ocorrência de estranha energia, com muitas semelhanças, foi relatada logo após a intensa batalha de três dias em Gettysburg, Pensilvânia, onde se estima que cerca de 3.000 tropas federais caíram, e talvez o dobro desse número de baixas rebeldes.

      Desta vez, devido à vitória da União, os fenômenos e suas consequências foram capazes de ser observado e documentado por oficiais militares da União. Enquanto há pouca explicação sobre a causa destas perturbações, sua origem perto das principais áreas de combate acredita-se neste momento não ser coincidência.

      A energia estranha em Gettysburg interrompeu os esforços para enterrar os mortos e ahudar feridos e prisioneiros. Alguns relatos iniciais indicam que uma substância cristalina estranha foi encontrada após as interrupções de energia, mas ninguém com conhecimento do incidente foi capaz de confirmar isso.

EDISON REVELA MOTOR MINERAL

Centenas de pessoas se reuniram hoje, em Menlo Park para assistir a mais recente e grandiosa demonstração pública de Thomas Edison. A cena foi uma mistura de confusão com antecipação, onde homens, mulheres e crianças clamavam para o destacado inventor encantá-los com alguma nova encarnação da sua magia.

.


      O próprio Sr. Edison estava de bom humor, e embora ele fingiu consternado pelo fato de que a multidão reunida tinha se cansado do lançamento do fonógrafo em apenas alguns meses, e já estavam perseguindo-o por algo novo, ele não quis mantê-los esperando por muito tempo. O milagre do momento era um carro miniaturizado, emoldurado em metal, que foi impulsionado e controlado por forças invisíveis.

      O espanto da multidão virou-se rapidamente para a incredulidade, quando um espectador chegou ao ponto de insinuar que deveria existir um animal treinado escondido, fazendo-o se movimentar. Isso pareceu divertir Edison, que foi preparado, ao que parece, precisamente para tal dúvida. Soltando o teto do carro, o inventor mostrou a todos os mecanismo interior: um fragmento de mineral incandescente, submerso dentro de um líquido em ebulição. Enquanto a multidão olhava em silêncio, chocada, várias fitas de energia arquearam a partir do mineral para nódulos metálicos, presos em volta da estrutura. A partir desses nódulos partiam tubos para um sistema de engrenagens que espontaneamente funcionaram, impulsionado o carro para a frente.

      A fonte de energia cristal foi confirmado como um fragmento de Pym-Mineral, uma substância que tem sido notícias recentemente. Leitores de longa data vão, naturalmente, lembre-se da descoberta deste mineral nos campos de batalha durante a guerra da rebelião, e posteriormente, o uso mais proeminente para impedir uma tentativa de assassinato contra o presidente Lincoln.

      Por pouco mais de uma década, as investigações sobre as aplicações do mineral foram exclusivamente lideradas pelo departamento de guerra sob o comando do Dr. Donald Pym, de quem levou o seu nome. Com a aparição do mineral em outras nações do mundo, no entanto, o Governo Federal relaxou sua política de proibir os civis de possuir a substância.

      Edison declarou que os inventores ainda nem arranharam a superfície do potencial deste material, mesmo quando ele demonstrou que não só foi Pym-Mineral que foi usada para impulsionar o dispositivo, mas através da manipulação dos campos de energia invisíveis emitidos por outro fragmento do mesmo cristal, que ele era realmente capaz de dirigir o carro à distância, sem contato físico.


TILDEN TENTA TERMINAR A GREVE

Presidente Tilden, hoje, negociou com os trabalhadores ferroviários descontentes, oferecendo subsídios do governo para as companhias ferroviárias deficitárias, como um incentivo aos dois lados para chegarem a um acordo sobre os salários. A greve, que vem desde meados de julho, aumentou em abrangência e violência nas últimas semanas, quando trabalhadores de diferentes linhas se uniram ao motim. Quando acusado por opositores no Congresso de ceder à ameaça violenta, o presidente observou que "a continuação da greve, a destruição de propriedade, e o sofrimento humano não estavam nos interesses de ninguém - nem das empresas de transporte ferroviário, nem dos trabalhadores em greve, e certamente nem do povo americano.”


SITUAÇÃO EM CUBA CRESCE DESESPERADAMENTE

Combatentes da liberdade em Cuba enfrentaram um revés trágico, segunda-feira, quando as forças espanholas arregimentados pelo Conde Henrique Zemo abriram fogo contra famílias de civis em regiões conhecidas por serem simpáticas à resistência. Zemo, um voluntário estrangeiro no exército confederado durante a guerra da rebelião, foi destituído de sua comissão pelo general Lee durante a campanha na Pensilvânia, por razões desconhecidas. Um militar de carreira, o conde Zemo serviu como governador de Cuba e General das Forças Militares da Espanha na ilha desde antes das batalhas começarem.

ROOSEVELT’S CAPTAIN LEADS ONE MAN CHARGE


SEVILLA, CUBA. Over two hundred Americans dead in the storming of heavy Spanish fortifications along the crests of San Juan Hill and Kettle Hill. The combined advancing force of U.S. Military, U.S. Volunteer, and Cuban resistance forces met only scattered enemy opposition while moving inland toward the heights, and was unprepared for the brunt of a fully entrenched Hydra division.

      The elite Spanish troops deployed never-before-seen Mineral-8 electro-rifles against the first infantry regiments to reach the exposed face of the hill. “Never seen anything like it,” described one survivor of that initial assault. “It was like the clear blue sky opened up and spat lightning down ‘pon every man in the 5th. Thousand bolts a minute. If you still had your feet after that, you were so deaf and blind from it, you didn’t even know which direction to fall down.”

      The initial plan called for air-cavalry to suppress the main Spanish position from above, covering the infantry regiments’ advance with Gatling fire from Mineral-8 loft-ships. Fire from the Hydra troops was so intense around the hilltop, however, that one of the loft-ships was downed immediately and the other forced to withdraw or be destroyed as well.

      With air support eliminated, Col. Roosevelt realized that they might momentarily be facing a complete rout unless something was done to free the surviving infantry pinned all along the ascent. He sent word for the supply train to bring forward one of the Mineral-powered armors they’d abandoned for being sweltering deathtraps in the jungle skirmishes previous. Though Roosevelt had planned to wear the suit personally, one of his Rough Rider Captains, Jeremiah Rogers insisted on donning the gear.

      “He powered on that shield and a bunch of us slid a full step back,” recalled one member of Rogers’s unit. “The hum from the Mineral-8 was that strong. We all practiced with that gear, but never seen it surge like that before.”

      Roosevelt himself relates, “I turned to muster the Riders for the push forward, and when I turned back, Rogers was already halfway up the hill.” He smiles then, one part bemusement, one part chagrin, “there was nothing for it then but to try to catch up.”


ANTI-SALOON LEAGUE GAINING SUPPORT

The movement to dry out the nation may be gaining support as a bill headed for the senate would ban all foreign liquor imports. Many of the politicians in support of the bill claim that they are merely looking out for American business interests, and that this is in no way a step towards complete prohibition.

THE UNITED STATES’ SECRET SERVICE
NEW MANDATE, NEW LEADERSHIP


WASHINGTON D.C., Congress yesterday passed legislation to expand the role and responsibilities of the Treasury Department’s Secret Service. The organization, previously tasked mainly with combating the rise in currency counterfeiting operations since the Civil War is being expanded to provide full-time personal protection details for the President of the United States as well as visiting political dignitaries.

      Since the assassination of President McKinley at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, last month, the legislative body has sought a permanent solution to the problem of protecting government officials in public. There was some debate over whether to form a new Department of Protections or to expand the purview of an existing organization. For expediency, the Treasury’s Secret Service Division, as the federal government’s largest police body, was eventually selected for the task.

      Congressional insiders with an eye towards President Roosevelt’s known style of frontline leadership and his daring exploits during the war in Cuba, expected the chief executive to bristle at the prospect of an entire department dedicated to the job of his protection.

      The President, however, had this to say, “You are no doubt familiar with the West African proverb, ‘speak softly and carry a big stick—you will go far.’ It is with this in mind that I welcome the expansion of the Secret Service Division and its future role in protecting not only myself, but our nation’s great interests at home and abroad. Only the exercise of intelligent forethought and decisive action sufficiently far in advance can help to stave off any crisis.”

      President Roosevelt went on to name Captain Jeremiah Rogers to the head of the new task force’s foreign intelligence gathering efforts. A longtime friend and military companion of Roosevelt’s, Captain Rogers is best remembered as the Rough Rider hero who led the charge at San Juan Hill, during the war in Cuba. Roosevelt went on to outline his plans for the Service to be outfitted with a new wave of Isotope-8 weaponry from the War Department.


TEDDY BUSTS ROXXON OIL TRUST

Following pressure from President Roosevelt, the US Department of Justice has filed suit against the Roxxon Oil company for maintaining a monopoly on oil and gas sales in the United States, in violation of the Sherman Anti-Trist Act. Infractions documented against Roxxon include the use of unfair business practices, non-competitive price discrimination, extortion, and other ‘political manipulations’ to ensure local favor over their competitors.


INSURGENCY IN COLUMBIA – NEW SOURCES: HYDRA MAY BE INVOLVED

LA CHORERA, PANAMA, Columbia’s civil strife continues to deepen as insurgent forces in panama faced heavy fire from a battery of Isotope weaponry, late Wednesday. Though the government’s fiscal insolvency lingers, soldiers fighting for the dominant Conservative party continue to be armed by unknown foreign benefactors.

      New sources shed some light on the mysterious armament, suggesting that the radical political organization Hydra might be involved. One military official with knowledge of the situation went so far as to suggest that Hydra had been influencing political affairs in the region since the contested election that saw Manuel Sanclamente rise to the presidency. The results of that election, which Liberal party insurgents claim was fraudulent, are cited as one of the main factors in triggering the civil war.

      If true, this activity in Central America would be the latest in a series of attempts by Hydra to insinuate itself in the geopolitical landscape of crucial military locations around the world. First coalescing in Spain over two decades ago, Hydra has become an aggressive military and political entity, consolidating the remnants of defeated and disgruntled political factions, from coups, rebellions, and other civil unrest worldwide.

      President Roosevelt continues to monitor the situation in Columbia, ordering his newly formed Secret Service task force to readiness. Roosevelt has vowed, however, that the United States will not intervene without explicit request from the Columbian people.

CAPTAIN AMERICA, SECRET SERVICE
SINK GUNBOAT, LIBERATE COLÓN


PANAMA CITY, Captain Jeremiah Rogers with a Secret Service task force led multiple rapid actions against Columbian national forces, Sunday. The attack force made a covert assault against a Columbian gunboat off the cost of Colón, boarding and scuttling the vessel, before making their way to land. With surprise on their side, the Captain’s squad took the entire crew as war prisoners, transferring them to the Navy’s USS Nashville, which was supporting the action.

      Rogers, whom the Panamanian separatists have already dubbed “Captain America” for his ongoing service to the freedom of peoples throughout the Americas, employed his trademark Iso-8 armor and shield during the assault. With Colón’s occupying force cut off from naval reinforcement, the Secret Service in conjunction with Panama’s resistance fighters were able to solicit the surrender of the Columbian regiment after a minimal skirmish.

      Hostilities erupted between the United States and Columbia after the Columbian government agreed to a treaty with the U.S. to establish an Isthmus canal in Panama, only to renege on the agreement days later. While there has long been support for such a canal across party lines in the region, it is widely known that the Hydra faction within Columbia’s unstable government has strongly opposed a U.S. presence in Central America. It is now believed that Hydra exerted military pressure against the governing body to force a reversal on the treaty.

      The Panamanians themselves, strong supporters of the proposed U.S. agreement found the flames of their dissatisfaction with Columbian governance again fanned. A call to independence was raised as well as a request for intervention from the United States. President Roosevelt, eager to secure and protect the site of the intended Atlantic-Pacific waterway, ordered the deployment of his Secret Service to bolster Panama’s defenses.


      While the Columbian occupiers have been subdued, Hydra is expected to make one last push to retake the isthmus and to force the United States out of the region. The Panamanians seemed unconcerned, however, noting that, after all, they have “Captain America” on their side.


“MIGHTY” MAX MURDOCK BEATS “PULVERIZER” CREEL IN 7 ROUNDS

NEW YORK, SUNDAY, Boxing fans got a treat over the weekend as mayor Franklin Fisk granted a special exemption to allow the Gentleman’s Athletic Club of Westchester to mount a public boxing exhibition at the Palladium athletic center of Empire State University. By far the highlight of the ticket was the middleweight matchup of “Mighty” Max Murdock versus Stiehl “The Pulverizer” Creel.

      This one was a puncher’s match right from the first bell, as neither fighter stopped swinging until the referee dragged them to their corners. Creel looked to have the advantage early, as he opened a wound over Murdock’s eye in the second round, and twice caught Murdock blind from that side, sending him staggering. To his credit though, MM kept his feet and in the seventh finally got his haymaker to land, after which Creel went down to his knees and was counted out by the official, unable to continue.

      Hopefully this event won’t be the last of its kind, but don’t start sharpening those left hooks just yet—boxing remains illegal throughout the state, and most of the country, and Mayor Fisk has said he has no immediate plans to grant further exemptions for the sport, at this time.
