party supremacy in the Eleventh district
presents a condition that a party gov
erned by the hand of discretion won'd
not have overlooked in mskinc a nomi
nation for congress had it bien guided by
a determination to win at the polls. The
convention which brought all the bitter
feeling to tha surface was held just 10
years ago ,te PBSt summer, on Augus:
17. 18S2t at Monmouth. Marsh bsd al

the old E'tvrnth district, to which Rjck

Senator Berry led tie McClaughry
forces while J. E. Chandler ci.a;erontd
the Marsh men. li h claimed control of
the Hancock delegation. The committee
on credentials however reported half and
half to tb j convention. The Chandler
forces with aid of scattering delegates had
enough votes to nominste Marsh though
his own county was divided against bim.
Senator Berry on tbe other band declared
that his dt legates were entitled to all the
seats in the convention assigned to Han
cock county. They should be the ac
credited delegates one and all or
not at all. So when the
committee on credentials attempted to
interpose in tbe interests of peace mak

his followers withdrew in a body, the
delegates admon'shiDg the Marehites
that they would sea them later and they
The convention thereupon went ahead
and nominated Marsh by a vote of 58 to
20 for Gest. and 6 for McClaughry.
The republicans attempted that year to
make the best of the situation as they
are doing this year, but the McClaughry
faction woull not down. They went to

RHODE ISLAND HAS PRODUCED MEN
WHO HAVE DONE MUCH.,
A 9otbl Us of Isrratsn. with Sosao
of Taetr Btst Kiowa Macaisw How
Asa Araold Was CttsMd Oat of tho
Royalties of His "CMpssad Mottoa."
During the past hncdred years tbe in
ventors of Rhode Island have cor.tribatevl
laxgvly to the present perfection of th
machinery used in xsodera shops and mills.
Some of them hare more than a Mate or a
national reputation, and the value of their
inventions has been rfcornied whenever
power has been applied to machinery, both
at home and abroad. The Inventor of the
slide lathe, Daniel Wilkinson, was a Khot'.e
Island nan, who, baring made nothing
out of his universally used device, was
paid f 10,000 by eonsress a few yvars before
his death because the srorernment had
adopted the mechanism for its shops. The
inventor of the braklinvr machine was a
narivo of this state, and like Wiikinsoa
he lived to see others accumulate fortunes
by ruanciacturins the machine of bis in
vention. The builder of the first successful power
loom introduced into Rhode Island mills
was paid fI.5iX for the machine that was
invaluable to cotton mannfactnrers, and
enabled them to increase production to an
incalculable extent. There are others
whose names are not familiar to the pub
lic, although their in vontiorw wither; t ma
terial alterations have been universally
employed upward of seventy year. One
of these is Aaa Arnold, a pioneer manufac
turer of Rhode Island and an inventor
whose name was perhaps more prominent
thsn that of any other lean interested ia
cotton mills fifty years ago.
Am Arnold was the son of Benjamin
Arnold, one of the Providence connty peo
ple of that name, aud Isabella, daughter cf
Paul Greene, of Potowomnt Xock. He was
born at Pawtccket in 17Si, and learned the
carpenter's trade with John Smith, of
Wick ford, but afterward was a machinist,
and in 1M2 oporauvl the Butterfly f actory
in company with Georjre Smith, who was
bis r.ncle br marriage. Their business
was making woolen blankets. At this
time he invented tbe "endless roving" for
carding machines. Previous to this all
roving was made by the cardinc machines
in short rolls, which hsd tA be pieced to
gether in spinning. Fifty or sixty years
ao there were scattered c-ver the coun
try, wherever there was a 1-horse water
power, card ins; machines that worVed up
the farmers' wool into these short rolls of
roving to be spun into a yarn on the farm
er's hand spinning machine.
At this date, 1512, owing to the war with
Rnglaud. it was impossible to import files,
and he invented a machine for cutting
them, upon which files were made fortheir
own use aud for sale; but it was dropped
at the close of the war, when it became
possible to import them again. In ISIS he
invented the "compound motion," or, as
he called it, the differential motion"
mechanism for compounding two different
motioui, or rates of speed to produoe a
third rate that should le the const-ant dif
ferential of the two, however much they
might change or differ.
This wns, as Z-rah Colburn, the great
arithmetician, expressed it, solving by
mechauisra an arithmetical problem that
could not be solved by figures, because of
their running into series of circulating
decimals. This motion he applied to the
speeder, a machine used to prepare cotton
roving for spinning, and patented it in
1S23. Its value wan quickly appreciated,
as it enabled the manufacturer to turn off
three skeins where he formerly hail two,
and the quality of the products was im
proved almost in the same ratio. It waa
testified in court by prominent manu
facturers that it was worth to them five
dollars per spindle per annum, it was
quickly adopted, and some Khnde Island
manufacturers paid a royalty, but the
Ijowell and the Fall Hiver companies re
fused, and suits were brought against
tht-in. After years of delay to send agents
abroad to find if tbe invention was not
previously ktiown there the cases came to
trial. The objection of tho opposition was
that a negative expression in one part of
the specification was not repeated in an
other part, and Judge Story said to the
connsel for defense, "If that is your only
objection Mr. Arnold can surrender his
patent and have that correct ed, and come
back here in two weeks ready to go ou
with the trial."
Accordingly he surrendered his patent,
but instead of receiving it Imck in two
weeks it was held in the patent ofiice for
months, and in the meantime the whole
rode of patent laws known as the code of
171KI waa repealed, nud the new code of
ISTIO was passed, so that when his patent
was returned it was under the new law,
and having no patent under the old law,
he was cut oil from entering suits for in
fringements under that law. lie did not
know the causa of this fatal detention of
his patent in the office until the latterpart
of his life. When he was a solicitor of
patents in Washington he found ia tho
archives of the pateut oilice a letter from
the leading counsel for the defense in his
case to the commissioner of patents say
ing, "Ilold on to that patent till you hear
from me," referring to his surrendered
patent. This, which he had never sus
pected, fully explained to him how he had
been defeated iu hia suit by the chicanery
of the lawyers.
Detijamin Arnold, of Fjtst Greenwich,
ono of the sons ofMr. Ar.a Arnold, is one of
the best kuown cf living Rhode Itdand in
ventors. Among his many inventions is a now
system of gearing which is in extensive
use in umny diliereut forms for gaining
power at the expense of Kpeod. This con
sists of an external gearwheel having
an internal gearwheel having a great
er number of teeth, the inner wheel
being placed on an eccentric on the shaft
so as to engage its teeth with those of the
outer gear at one side, when the shaft and
eccentric revolved, one of the gearwheels
being held fast and the motion taken from
the other. The gain in power and reduc
tion in speed is in inverse ratio to the dif
ference iu the number of teeth in the two
Among the machines invented by Mr.
Arnold are a loom for weaving clct h on a
bios, macliin-H for making twill drills and
mending stockings, a mariner's signal com
pass, n circular loom, and a machine for
the manufacture of interlocked cordage.
All of these weie practical, but his rnc"t
successful invention was a machine for
muking seines aud nets for fishing. These
were built iu a number of ways, and the
fin-t patents were sold to a lialiimore firm
in 18()4. Since the expiration of the patents
Mr. Arnold has built these machines for
American rind foreign manufacturers, ship
ments haviur been made to Baltimore,
Chicago, Ric.imond, North Carolina, Glas
gow, Scotlano. tuul Barcelona, Spain. The
ideas embodied in the netting machine arc
