GIVEN SEVERE TEST
MR. CONNOR'S INVENTION
MADE COMPLETE AT AN
WAS SECOND MODEL
Result of Teats Under Difficulties
Woe Satisfactory to the
A second model ot a rotary engine
has been completed at the Anderson
Machine ?md Foundry company's plant
tor Mr. T. C. Connor od thia city. Mr.
Connor Invented th 1B machine and lia:=
been working on this second model
Home time. I UH work 'bas ut Inst be
come almost perfect and the results
attained on Saturday afternoon at '.ho
foundry were very satisfactory.
The machine Itself ls built on a
mlgidy good principle. LIke all rotary
motors, lt ha? a case a'id a revolv
ing; axle fitted with blades which the
gleam strikes while expandicg. Tills
ls somewhat modified in the blanc:,
which are not really bindea, but sec
tions of steel, and revolve rapidly
whoo under pressure. One of Un
best features of tho machine i i thc
fact that tho c-i'eam is brought into
tho engine in tho middle, and not at
one end. In many modela, the steam
being brought in at one end, crames
a lateral pressure, producing a large
uniotint of friction at one of the end
Another strong point, mechanically
speaking, is tho fact that In tho motor,
tho Btenm la reversed, that is, it is
run throujv.v ono Bet of blades, uni
then thronjh thc exhaust on.o anoth
er sc}, but thia time it la reversed,
and. striking tho second sot. exerts
it? fore? on them. This gives tho
pressure of fie expanding steam on
both sides to two seta of blades, be
sides tho longitudinal pressure, pro
duced by the steam coming from lite
boiler and striking on the first set of
Tho machine won severely tested on
Saturday. The boiler to which the
motor was attached v.aa once been
condemned and to have over CO pounds
of prestare would bo dangerous. Tho
motor waa tesisd first with 40 pounds
pressure, With io pounds-pressure,
a Bpeed ol 1*800 r. p. m. was attain
ed, at f>0 pounds pressure, a cpeed of
1,450 r. p. m. and nt 00 pounds, a
speed of 1,000 r. p. m. irita a small
fan nt'.aehed. The fact ?.ha* tho in
crease of speed was greate ; on tho
Increase of steam between 6) and 00
pounds than it wns between 40 and 50
pounds leads t:e inventor to believe
that with a much higher pressure, and
with superheated steam, a now record
in efficiency and speed may be attain
Other severo and rigid testa are to
follow tho ones on Saturday. Somo
few chances may yet be made by. the
inventor, bit -practically the machine
