TESTS IN EOROPE OF NQISLESS GUNS Hiram Maxim, of Hartford, Will Go Abroad This Month to Show His Device to Army E-iperts. PRACTICES IN HIS HOME! Wife and Son Also Enjoy Shooting Without Waking the Baity Sportsmen Anxious for the Weapon, Hartford, Dec. (!. After exhaustive te.ts of his device for noiseless shoot ing Hiram Percy Maxim is preparing to show it to foreign military experts. He will go abroad the latter part of this month and expects to satisfy Eu ropean governments thai he has solv ed the problem of concealing a firing force from an enemy. line of the most Interesting demon strations Mr. Maxim lias made with his device Is the establishment of a shooting gallery In his home In this city. A target U set up In the fireplace in the dining room ntul back of It Is a box of sand to receive the bullets, position Is taken for shooting In the library, 30 or 40 feet away, and through wido doors a nice range Is secured. Mr. and Mrs. Maxim and their cight-ear-old son, Hamilton, constantly use this gallery. The boy shoots with a light .22 calibre rifle and Mr. and Mrs. Maxim use a .!2-calibre automatic, a somewhat larger and heavier gun. The boy has a score of 39 out of a possible 51, and Mrs. Maxim very often gets n bull's-eye. Mr. Maxim has to shoot straight to beat his son. It i.s great fun for all hands. Mr. and Mrs. Maxim have a baby, a little girl, and the firing, although done at night when Mr. Maxim is at home, has never yet awakened her. So It is a fact that one can practice marksman ship In his own hou.se without waking the baby. For his experiments In the use of the weapon In war Mr. Maxim has obtain ed the standard rifles of practically all countries in the world, and the muffler has been used on each. In his demon strations abroad he will probably use the Mauser rille of the German army, which 1st recognized as a .standard In Continental Europe and 'Asia. Mr. Maxim gave an exhibition of his silencer before the Technology club of Hartford this week In the rathskeller of the Hotel lleubleln. The silencing dclc.e is a steel cylinder about eight iiiclu s long and an Inch and a quarter In diameter. In this cylinder are hol low rings, the purpose of which Is to retard the exist of the smoke and ex plosive gases, A reverse rotary motion Is given to them, and they thus escape gradually. The mechanism by which this result Is achieved Is secret. The cylinder Is screwed to the muzzle of a rifle, the point of contact being to on" side of the center of the cylinder, so that it may not Interfere with the sights. Mr. Maxim say the device will ef fectually prevent the loeatiiiK of n tir ing party. A bullet may be heard while on lis way, and when it strikes something It is likely to be heard, but by that time It is too late to tell where the enemy was. It was feared at first that if the bullet noise could be doiv away with the Invention might be of no practical value. However, tests have shown that this bullet noise does not nullify the value of the invention. A firing party had 1 n sent out and the question then was as to where the llring came from, when live shots were fired at a time, one Immediately niter another, line of those present said they e me from tile r-outh, another from the west. In not a single case could the concealed filing party to properly located. Not one guess was correct, aim no two oi the guessers agreed In ue guesses. If bayonet and silencer were both attached to a kuii the full length of the bayonet could not be used, but both would not be needed nt the same time, the kind of fight requiring one not calling for the use of the other. Mb. Maxim is In receipt of letters from sportsmen all over the country making Inquiries as to when the si lencing device can be obtained, He has received such letter from as far away as Oregon and Texas. The de vice has been perfected for ' sport lug guns, and they are In process of miin ufacture. The invention and patents are owned by the Maxim Silent (Ire arms company, v. .Vew Jersey corpora tion, with a capital of $ 2,10.000. o stock is for sale, as it is all held by Mr. Maxim and those who have aid ed him in developing the Invention.

SPEAKS OF ITS FUTURE Colorado Strike Settlements Freight Handlers' Strike in New York Other Items. . The following views were expressed by Samuel liompers concerning the, recent election. "Although, naturally aomewhat dis appointed with the Immediate result of this campaign, yet there will not be any loss of faith and confidence on the part of the workers. They havo now a better opportunity than ever before of gauging the strength of the powers opposing them anil from now on there will be no cessation of , ffort. True, the task of iirotislng the masses, of the people to a sense of teal politi cal Independence Is a great one, It could not be accomplished in the limits of 8 brief campaign. "Labor's forces had neither the means nor the machinery that was needed to carry on the great cam paign. We could only do our best with the limited means at our dispos al. From the experiences of this campaign will he drawn the wisdom which will make future i fforls more successful, "The oiRanlzed v in kers were prac tically unanimous in voiitiR for the principles for which they declared. That they did not succeed In turning the tide of a national election Is hard ly cause for wonder. Two million Votes, mostly in the congested Indus trial districts can only hope for Im mediate success by being able to at tract to its campaign the masses of the people In other walks of life. This process had begun during the cam paign and had the time been longer In which to carry on the educational work, there would have been a far different result. ; know this to be true from the large number of let ters received from people of all classes who became interested In labor s cam paign and who desired further knowl edge. The time of tlv campaign, was for labor's forces a sowing of seed which had not the time to ripen into the harvest by election day. "It may take time, but the workets will learn to so unite and conserve their forces that their political power shall be used always to safeguard their rights and the liberties of the whole people. This is not easy, It requires a high order of patriotism to sink all thought of narrow self InUrest and to work and suffer and struggle for humanity, but that is what we must do. The good work has already begun. A solid founda tion has been laid. The future will see the superstructure i eared, Labor is accustomed to patient effort In se curing Industrial refoims. It knows that persistent effort will overcome defeat. It will use this philosophy in its political as well as Its Industrial activities, "Let II be clearly understood by all that the tollers are not responsible for existing financial tlllHeultlcs, and will not be made the victims of the at tempt at Industrial depression; that wage reductions will be resisted by every lawful means at. our command and that the reasonable demands which the tollers make for congres sional and legislative relirf for the redress of wrongs, and to attain Hie rights to which they are entitled, will go on uninterrupted with greater per sistency than ever before." A report as to labor conditions In Colorado says: "organized labor In fair shape, Prospects are favorable for an early settlement of strike of machinists, blacksmiths, bollermakera and pipe fitters on the Denver and Hlo Grande railroad. Kullding trades have enjoy ed steady employment; other Indus tries fair. Painters and decorators, af ter a two-years' strike, secured favor able settlement and Increase In wages from $:i.60 to 14.00 for eight hour day. About, 76 per rent, of organized labor Is steadily employed, while about. Ml per cent, of unorganized are walking the streets In search of work," T. .1. Flynn, International ultVer of I lie Krcight Handlers union, reports; "Stale of employment litis been only fair for some time past. Wage reduc tions have been attempted, so far without success, the most recent at tempt being made In New York city, where our members are on strike. Three new unions of freight handlers were organized In the Hudson valley. We Intend to effect thorough organi zation of our trade throughout the country." , I California labor conditions are : summed uP as foiios: I "Thn collier Prometheus, which is ncarlng completion, Is an eloquent tes timonial for the campaign waged by organized labor for ship building in government yards. Cnlon men havo been fairly well employed, but un organized trades have been uncertain of work. Expect to organize butch ers, tailors, and bootblacks during the month." COMPEL TAX PAYMENTS. Assistant Corporation Counsel O'Meara Gets After le!ln(Hcnts. Tlie campaign which Assistant Cor poration Counsel d'Meara has planned against persons who fall to pay the taxes due the city from them w ill take several forms thl.s year, The first prin cipal objective is the compelling of owners of taxable personal property to pay their assessments for the benefit of the city treasury. Mr. O'Meara has employed officers, It Is said, to go around to those who have failed to pay their taxes and demand of them their arrearages. Each officer Is accompanied by a keeper and this keeper will be Installed In the place where the owner does not give satis factory assurances that he will pay up. Where a man docs not promise to make a fair attempt to liquidate bis taxes lie will find a keeper In his place, Jn the rounds of Hie officers Saturday they found several who came up and settled and In a few hours over Jinn were col lected. It Is estimated that $1VH1 are due from this source alone, so far as In vestigated and the city is-to go after the holders of real e.tate, who have not had the receipt of the tax collector on their hills.
