Son of Maxim Patents Device Which
v Makes Shooting Noiseless.
A "noiseless gun," for which Hiram
rercy'Maxim, sou of Sir Hiram Max
lm, who invented the machine gun
which bears his name, has just been
granted a patent, threatens, in the eyes
of experts, to revolutionize the world
of arms. By the device the discharge
of a rifle or revolver is rendered practi
cally noiseless nnd. with smokeless
powder, military experts assert, may
lead to the entire equipment of the ar
mies of the world.
Mr. Maxim, who resides at Hartford.
Conn., asserts that the discovery of the
"silent firearm"' really was an accident,
resulting from his study of the prob
lem of silencing the explosions inci
dent to the running of an automobile.
The principle involved is similar to
that of the automobile mufiler, the re
port being prevented throngh the ac
tion of a valve which allows the gas
to escape gradually, with only a silent
By this device, which does not alter
the appearance of any weapon except
for a small crosspiece near the muzzle,
the escape of the gases following dis
charge of the explosive is shut off just
as the bullet emerges from the muzzle.
This result is obtained. -hy means of a
valve operated by the pressure of the
gases sliding across the bore immedi
ately after the bullet passes.
Preventing the gases from escaping
suddenly and provoking a consequent
loud report, this valve allows them to
issue gradually through a series of
small holes, thus obviating all noise
except a slight hissing sound. Am
munition of any kind may be used.
Military experts assert that this
weapon holds the power to revolution
ize modern methods of warfare. By
its use skirmishers could work along
a.n enemy's front and shoot down pick
ets without their presence being noted.
Sharpshooters would be enabled to
pick off men without reports betray
ing their positions. The extended front
of an entire army, masked, might op

it will be generally followed for the
