A JUEl:n MAGAZINE ARTICLE.
The perpetuation of an Injustice ts'nn
irritating tiling, and doubly irritating is
it when such injustice is perpetuated
Uirougli a respectable medium. Hence
lv Is that an artlclu by John Habborton,
in the last number of "Lipplncoli's
Magazine," is calculated to make any
well-Informed person indignant. The
article in question hears the title "Our
Greatest -inventor," and. is davotod to
laudation of tho late John Ericsson.
This is all right, to. nn cjtcnt John
Ericsson was a man of energy and ac
complished much hut tho artlclu gives
Win credit for the invention of tho
'(Monitor," tlio famous gunboat of
Vfhich he was tho constructing engi
neer. This is notoriously a false credit.
With precisely as much rewn might
tho writer have credited Edison with
winning tho battle of Waterloo or Cor
poral Tanner with inventing tho tele
phone, or Silling Bull with discov
ering the circulation of the blood.
There is not even a. question on tho
tubject. There is no chance for dobate.
It is tniothut many people, at loa-st for
years, believed, that Eiicsson was the
inventor, and It was not to bis credit
that he failed publicly to deny the
thing, but no good authority now could
