Discovery of Tungsten Has
Changed Methods With
Great Benefit to
New York, April 8. One October
night In tho year 1781, while Wash
ington's cannon were demanding the
mrretader of Cornwall! at York
ti .wn, n German scientist, working in
his little laboratory by the light from
tallow candles, discovered a new
and m.int unusual metal which he
found Impossible to melt in his crude
charcoal furnace. lie called thtf
new metal Tungsten, from the Swed
ish "tung" (heavy) and "sten"
)stone) because the heavy ores had
come from Sweden. Little did the
old man know, as he worked away
I y candlelight to give his discovery
to the world, that hiB find would one
day, a hundred and twenty-five years
later, completely revolutionize eh- -trie
Twenty-five years ago Thomas
Edison produced the first successful
incandescent electric lamp after oth
er Inventors had worked for nearly
fifty years to perfect the device. Tne
filaments for Edison's first lamps
were made of carbonized strips of
bamboo heated white hot In a vac
uum globe by electricity. After 1894
carbonized cotton cellulose wus used
for the filaments and it seemed us
though the. lamp hud surely reachod
The filaments of incandescent elec
tive lamps were made of carbon be
cause no other muterial could be
found which would withstand the in
tense hi-at. Every well known metal
was tried but melted before reacn
ing the required temperature. Then
the 'inventors began to experiment
with the more uncommon metals and
again a German scientist took up
the study of tungsten.
At first the great trouble w'as to
seiure pure tungsten. This difficulty
was overcome with the aid of an
electric furnace, but the product, in
the form of n gray, metallic powdeY,
proved so refractory that it could
not be melted Into ingots or drawn
out into wire. An experimental lila
ment was made by mixing the. fine
powder with a paste and squirt
lug the mixture through a die
much the same as a spider spins Its
wib. This thread was Inturn heated
In an electric furnace until the
powder was fused Into the form of a
tine w ire. With the nu ltlng point of
tungsten so much higher than any
other known metal It was possible to
hi lit the filament to greater incan
descence, producing more -and bett r
light with less waste of current in
Then the electrical inventors awoke
to the fact that the very substance
they were seeking, that which Edison
had scoured the world to find, lay
under their hand all the time, and
tungsten, useless and practically un
known for over a century, came into
Itj own and began the wonderful task
of revolutionizing incandescent cle.
The advent of the new tungst-n
lamp was startling to the users of
electricity for ' lighting purposes, for
they saw at once that the new lamps
would easily give the same light as
the common incandescent lamps rnr
one-third the cost. A home that was
lighted by electricity for 12.35 a
month could be lighted with the new
lamps for 7s cents. Not only that,
but the light from the new tungsten
lamps proved to be pure white, very
nearly akin to actual sunshine, suit,
pleasing and benelicial to the eyes,
and not of yellow cast like tne
common incandescent lamps.
The new tungsten lamp will re
place those now in use without spe
cial fixtures; In fact, any sixteen ean
dlepower incandescent lamp can be
replaced w ith a 32-candb power tung
sten which will" give twice the light
and save twenty per rent of tne cosi.
The new lumps are the sam- us the
old in si'", shape and general ap
pearance, the difference being in the
light-giving filament within tho glass

NO QUESTION OF
Congress Will Not Submit to
Trick as It Did During
the Recent Ses
slon. Washington. I). C, April 8. .State
hood for Arizona and New Mexico Is
practically assured at the next ses
sion. The method by which passage
of the statehood bill was prevented
at the last session smacked very
much of a trick, and the same trick
is not likely to work twice. The
statehood bill can be put through the
house in an hour, and as there is no
set day upon which the next session
must adjourn, the bill can be forced
to a vote in the Senate. Once a vote
is allowed separate statehood for the
two territories Is assured.
Congress is very eager to comply
with President Taft's suggestion that
the tariff bill be passed and adjourn
ment taken at the earliest day con
sistent with careful legislation. A
very earnest effort will be made to
complete the work by June 1, and
no one is now heard predicting that
final passage of the bill will be de
layed more than a fortnight beyond
that date. It is only a few weeks
ago that senators and representatives
were talking of October 1 as an early
date for adjournment.
.There is going to be no little pres
sure for consideration of other legis
lative matters. despite President
Taft's advice to the contrary, but If
Speaker Cannon sticks to his resolve
not to uppoint the house committees
this pressure will be futile. It Is pos
sible an exception may be made In
the case of the bill providing for the
taking of the next census, which was
vetoed by President Roosevelt be
lause it did not provide that appoint
ments should be made upon certifica
tion of tho civil service commission.
Mr. Crumpacker of Indiana has re
introduced the bill in form which
meets this objection, and it is desira

ble the measure should be passed at
the earliest possible day In order that
preliminary work for the census tak
ing may begin.
Another matter which will be
pushed Is the resolution providing for
submitting to the states the consti
tutional amendment necessary to
changing the date of inauguration.
The argument of those urging thfl
measure Is that action should be
taken while memory of tho terrible
weather of last 4th of March Is still
fresh In mind, but as the matter Is
not oie upon which immediate ac
tion Is vital. Speaker Cannon Is not
likely to pave the way for Its con-,
siderntlon by appointing the Judiciary
When the 61st Congress convenes
next December it Is going to be for
one of the most Important sessions
ever held. President Taft's program
for interstate commerce and anti
trust legislation Is going to battle for
paramountry with the Aldrich com
mission's plan for currency reform,
and ship subsidies wUl hang on the
flanks of both.
It remains to be sen, of course,
what sort of reception Congress will
accord the Taft Interstate commerce
and anti-trust recommendations. A
good many of the most Influential
Republican leader In Congress do
not believe there should for the pres
ent be any further legislation of this
character, and the president will
have to he very convincing n his ar
guments if their minds are changed.
The currency bill could not be so
handled In the Senate ns to afford a
very effective obstacle to anti-trust
le;,ltion. but Senator Aldrich is too
deeply interested In the pussage of
the currency bill to allow It to be ex
tensively used for this purpose, lie
wants It enacted. Into law ns the
crowning achievement of his long
career In Congress, and he Isn't go
ing t' consent-that it be permanently
converted Into a buffer.
Advocates of ship subsidies are
confident they will win their fight
during the life of the present Con
gress. It is true they were confident
they would win in the 60th Congress
and didn't, but their defeat was by
the narrow est of margins. They claim
to be sulllclently stronger In the pres
ent house to put through the meas
ure, but that is something which
can only be demonstrated by a test.
If they get It through the House they
will have no difficulty In the Senate,
the Senate having been a ship sub
sidy body ever since the late Senator
Hanna backed the original measure.
