Apply history to hysterics, suggests

The following extract from the'
first inaugural address of Abraham
Lincoln are of interest:
i Fellow Citizens of the
. i , ,-. i. ,
ithe oath prescribed by the const!- .
new democratic ways and means com- j
miftee. Mr. Rainey introduced afflda-;
vlts of Bethlehem Steel company work
men to the effect that tlie government
inspectors were fooled Into accepting
work with serious flaws in It. Each af
fidavit was subscribed and sworn to be
fore a notary public.
Yet the government has failed to do
anything In the matter.
It has been shown that during the
night, when government inspectore
were not present, workmen were com
pelled to treat patch, and weld inferior
work so that the government could be
fooled into accepting it.
David Williams, In a sworn state
ment, etated: "I know that on an or
der of 5-1nch sights for the navy, about
three year ago, that some of these
sights were found out of alignment
during the company shop test, and that
the steel castings were hammered with
a sledge to bend them so they would
line up. The recoil of the guns when
these sights were used must have
sprung these castings back to their oli
shape, and thereby made it Impossible
for our sailors to shoot straight I of
fer as witnesses Horace Kllnesmith
and Robert Johnson, former employes
of No. 4 machine shop."
Referring to 24 six-inch howitzer
guns, Williams says: "Parts have been
broken in flunging, and welded with
acetylene gas; axles have been ma
chined wrong, and patched; other parts
machined wrong, and doctored up to
make itipass inspection. In fact, the
idea in the shop Is to make the work
'appear' as though it is up to specifi
cations, or, in other words, to get It
past the inspector by fair or foul
"An investigation where men could
he placed on oath would bring to light
a great many things which I haven't
mentioned. When it Is known that Mr.
Everett, a skilled jeweler, is used on
some of this work, the impossibility cf
detecting these things by ordinary in
spection is apparent."
Mr. Rainey, in discussing the affida
vits, declared that "the fact of the con
tinuance of these frauds is evidenced
by the frequency with which guns ex
plode on our battleships and on land,
killing and maiming men, by the fre-.
quency with which boilers on our ships
blow up with such awful results to hu
"Guns, while being tested by other
groat nations of the world, do not ex
plode with disastrous results. The
very large number of these accidents
leads to the irresistible conclusion that
there are defects in the castings of the
guns, which are not made in our gov
ernment arsenals, but are furnished by
the private steel companies and merely ;
assembled in the government arsenals.
"In disasters in our army and navy
