BALTIMORE, June 19.—Save the
shot tower! Thafs the cry here to
day, following the announcement that
the old shaft had been offered for
sale by the oil company which owns
the ground on which it Is located at
Fayette and Front streets.
Sentiment In favor of Its preserva
tion began to crystallize Immediately
and steps are being considered by the
city today to purchase the tower and
Incorporate it into a small public
"No definite action has been planned
and the subject will have to be given
thought," said Mayor Jackson today.
“But we know that Baltimoreans who
have the city's past and traditions at
heart would be dismayed to see the
old structure sold for commercial
purposes and torn down. It is fitting
that the city should acquire the prop
erty for a park."
Civic and patriotic societies are also
aroused and officials of the Daughters
of 1812 said today that if it was
found that the city could not use the
money for its purchase, the organi
zation would undertake to raise the
funds by popular subscription and
present it to the city.
“Certainly it should be preserved
as a historic landmark,” said Miss
Plorine Judnik. head of the local
branch, and if the city has no funds
available to buy it our organization
will raise the money and buy it.”
W. M. Ellicott, president of the
city-wide congress, and Josiah Pen
nington of the Municipal Art Society,
also said the landmark should be
The tower was built in 1828 by the
Merchants' Shot Tower Company, and
Charles Carroll of Carrolltown, sign

ence, laid the corner stone.
The tower, which is one of the only
three left standing in the United
States, is the oldest in the country
and contains over one million bricks,
ail of them handmade and wood
burned. of uniform size and color.
From a base of forty feet in diam
eter the shaft rises to a height of 248
feet. The column tapers as it
ascends, so that the diameter at the
top is only twenty feet.

MOSCOW, Juno 19.— 1 n a speech re
markable for its candor, G. S. Zino

of the Third Internationale, yester
day told five hundred delegates of
that organization that there was no
reason to feel discouraged over the
fact that the Communist Interna
tionale has failed to obtain victory
in the majority of western countries
or that social revolution has not been
developed with the rapidity antici
pated in the early days of the Rus
sian revolution.
While he gave no definite figures
on the membership of the Communist
party in the various countries of the
world, most of the delegates had be
