5 BIG ST
BEAT CASH REGISTER.
Mr. George W. Hippie, of New
York, Retains the $50.
forfeit Offered If tho Nntlonnl Cash Regis?
ter is Not Compelled to Add nad Sub?
tract at will in a False Count?Witnesses
A National Cash Register was b aten
yesterday. A contest had been an?
nounced to occur at the office or Mr. C.
U. Beaver, 104 Union street. News?
paper reporters and citizens were in?
vited to be present. At 3 o'clock y< a
terday afternoon a number of gentle?
men, with two representatives of the
Virginian-Pilot, were there to witness
The contest was between ex pi rts, one
of whom, Mr. George AV. Hippie, ol
Nt-w York, representing the ilalhvood
Cash Register, and a represi ut itlve ol
the National Cash Register. .Mr. liip
? pie was present and ready for
a contest, with a $r.o forfeit, that
he could make miscounts with tl e Na?
tional Cash Register, and within n i ,v
seconds compel it to subtract and add
so as to show results contrary i > the
facts. In short, that it could ho u ed
to make cheating by a dlshmt I i ,
as easy as taking money out ol a > >m
There was no contest, however, he
cause, as Mr. Beaver explained, tlie
representative of the National, al?
though invited and having agreed to
come, was not present.
Mr. Beaver stated that he hau In?
formed the 'representatives of the Na?
tional definitely as to the time and
. place of the proposed contest. The
witnesses waited till Z.'iU, no as to give
Ample time. Thon when the represen?
tative of the National did not appear,
Mr. Hippie deposited'$r>0 with the re?
feree and said he was sorry that lite
other parly to the contest was not
present, and said he would proceed
Mr. Hippie called attention to Mr.
Heaver's register. It is one of the
latest patterns and cost, Mr. Beaver
said, $200 only n few months ngo. It
is a modern machine Of tire latest im?
proved pattern. It is a No. -IT total
adder, with detail strip attached and
having a red Hash. Of course it Is
presumed to be perfect, if it were not
proof ngainst cheating and miscount?
ing, It would be worthless as a cheek
on 'the dishonesty of a clerk, its ob?
ject, will not be accomplished.
Mr. Hippie's first object was to show
that the machine was in perfect order.
He accomplished that by inviting the
[ apectators to use it in the same man?
ner as it is used in retail stores. One
? of them touched the keys of the reg
I Ister so as to make it ring for differ?
ent amounts to $2.00. Unlocking the
! machine there was the amount correet
! ly stated in the register. That was ac?
cepted as a proof that the machine was
in its normal winking condition. Sev?
eral other tests of the same kind con?
Then Mr. Beaver, the owner, reset
' the machine to zero, and another oper
, ator worked It to TO cents. An examina?
tion showed that amount, correctly In?
dicated and added. Therefore, there
; should have been 70 cents in currency
j in the till. So there would have been,
hut Mr. Hippie demonstrated his skill
J and exposed the machine's weakness by
Subtracting from that till the register;
showed zero, again indicating that no1
money had been registered, if the dls- I
honest clerk had abstracted TO cents
I from the drawer there would have been
no evidence apparent to the reporter,
at least, that any money had ever been
received or registered. It Would have
shown a falsehood with no proof that
it was not as true as llgures arc said
io he. Even figures, however, can he
induced to lie. Tills machine, which
had indicated that 70 cents hail been
received and registered indicated on
the contrary that nothing had been
either reclved or registered.
Tlie 70 cents was in the clerk's
po'ckcl, but the owner of this auto?
matic detective machine would have
beeil deceived by the detective.
Another test of the machine was thatj
of.leaving 70 cents Indicated while the
roprletor stepped out of the store for
a few minutes. During that time, act?
ing on the presumption that customers
had come in and bought various
amounts, which the register showed
truthfully to the customer, but which
had been deducted by the clerk, so that
when the proprietor returned the 70
cents was still indicated. The sums
had been deducted from the adding
wheels so that it was impossible for
the proprietor to suspect that the clerk
had been robbing, or that the ?honest
looking machine was false.
Still another feat of Mr. Hippie, who
is ii very clever operator, was that of
showing the amount of 90 cents. To
this he added ten sales, Bach time,
however, there was a subtraction till
the amount was entirely subtracted,
s,> thai while the adding wheels showed
nothing ?!> had been indicated.
A still more difficult feat was that of
making the detail strin falsify itself.
Now, the detail strip is an afterthought
added to the machine for the purpose
of pn venting it from cheating or being
cheated. It is supposed to supply a
doubl.- Check, namely, that of showing
that the automatic count of the ma?
chine and the registered figures are
correct, and that of preventing the
Clerk from making the machine regis?
ter incorrectly. ?
It i.i :t witness against the clerk who
might seduce the machine to tell a
false story of the sales, and a proof of
the work of the machine's count. The
d. tail strip at the side Is really a de?
tective "a the detective machine, it is
n sentinel which might to tell an ac?
curate story even when the other part
of ihe machine tolls an automatic He.
ln the simplest and quickest manner
possible Mr. Hippie showed that both
detective and assistant, or annex de?
tective, would tell a false story. Thus,
In changing the story of the machine
proper, so that it would show 70 cents
when the dishonest clerk had several
dollars in his pocket that the register
did not indicate, Mr. Hippie used a
piece of bent wire. He inserted tills
wire in one of the slots where the keys
move. With this ho held one of the
levers and thus made the machine add
or subtract at will by playing on the
Meantime Mr. Hippie showed the wit?
nesses, of whom there were eight or
ten present, how the detail strip on the
Bide ol the machine could be prevented
9* ' '? ')' t
from printing the amounts by a slip
These false counts are made without
disturbing the mechanism, without op- j
cning the machine or without doing
anything that will prevent the register
from working accurately the next min?
ute, or within a few seconds. A bent
wire, a few taps on the keys and a
paper buffer inserted and the work of
changing the: easli register, which is
proved before to be in perfect working
orilcr. from a true count to a false
count. This was demonstrated so
(dearly that any one of the witnesses
felt assured thai ho possessed the dan?
gerous knowledge of a simple and prac?
ticable method of beating the cash
Mr. Beaver stated his conviction
tersely by saying that demonstration
had determine d him to swap the cash
register he had bought recently for
$200 for The Hallwood register. He
said he was convinced that The Hall
wood machine could not be cheated, ln
that mar,a- r, at least.
Mr. Hippie Haid he would be pleased
to show The Hallwood Cash Register,
and Invite I all of the gentlemen to
the office nt 171 Main street.
Among the gentlemen who witnessed
the demonstration were Messrs. U.
Tharp, 10S Union street; Sam Wassor
man, proprietor of Atlantic Garden;
James M. Barton, manager of the Au?
ditorium Theatre; H. G. Bonney, 101
Union strc t; H. B. Halstead, 10? Union
street; and two representatives of the
All of these, and others whose names
are not mentioned, declared that they
were satisfied with Mr. Hippie's demon?
stration, If a contest had-occurred, as
was anticipated and arranged for. they
said they were assured Mr. Hippie
would have won the wager. He had
demonstrated that the cash register
could lie beaten, and beaten easily, and
with simple and accessible appliances.
These were a piece of wire and a strip
of paper, both easily obtained and as
easily concealed. Several gentlemen
snhl the tiling was so easy?well, that
it need not be quoted. It
