Thltt machine, with a gross weight
of more than 200 tons and an extreme
height above the foundations of about
eighty feet. Is by far the largest test
log appliance ever constructed. En
gineers seen recently said that the rea
son there is always so much uncer
tainty about the strength of a great
bridge is because no machines have
ever been constructed of sufficient
power to test tlie great columns of
•tee! used In them.
It was pointed out that every piece
of steel used was subjected to a speci
fied test, the engineers knowing the
quality of the material used and bas
ing their calculations on the strength
Pf column or cord thereon. But tho
actual strength of tlie ponderous piece
of steel was In the last analysis known
on paper only, and the statement was
repeatedly made that had there been
In existence such a machine as that
the government is now having con
•traced the-weakness of the Quebec
bridg# would have been known before
It waft too late.
TtM^nearest approach to the proposed
90Tei||inent machine is the celebrated
,Ws
te^town arsenal machine, Water
town,''Pa., designed by A.
n.
Einery
of Stamford, Conn. The enormous cost
of such a machine as tlie government
has contracted for has until now been
the obstacle between the private
plants and its construction, and even
when the Philadelphia firm was first
engaged to construct this machine It
was not designed to have it larger than
necessary to test the large blocks of
•tone being used in government and
other buildings throughout the United
States.
But the supervising architect of the
geological survey urged that the ca
jMcity of the machine be extended so
as to test whole columns of brick,
•tone, concrete and even of steel, and
accordingly the original clearance be
twnt "the heads!' wag increased from

strength and vigor—the red sap of life bounding through their veins in a flood of surging

twenty-live to sixty live feet. Now,
since the purpose of the government
has become known, the department is
being flooded with letters urging Its
early completion that it may be used
not only In the cases of bridges already
under construction, but to test built up
structures as well.
The machine In simplest form to
nothing more than o huge hydraulle
press with one adjustable head and a
weighing system for recording the
pressure developed In it by means of a
triple plunger pump. Between the base
of the machine and the adjustable
head when removed to the furthest
point Is a distance of slxty-flve feet
consequently the machine Is capable
of testing the supporting strength of a
column more than sixty feet in length.
Some idea of the size of the machine
may be obtaiued from a statement of
the weight of Its principal parts. The
castings for the base and the top head
weigh approximately 50,000 pounds
each. Each main screw will weigh
over 40,000 pounds, the lower platform
about 25,000 pounds and the main cyl
inder 10,000 pounds. The top of the
machine will be about seventy feet
above the floor, and the concrete foun
dation upou which the mnchlne rests
will be about eight feet below the floor
Hue.
So many letters were sent to mem
bers of congress and to the department
of geological survey congratulating the
government on tuking the initiative in
the construction of such a mnchlne
that Senator Teller has introduced a
bill providing for another machine
more than twice as large as the Phila
delphia ilrtn's apparatus, having 11,
OiHJ tons capacity in compression and
5,500 tons in tension, taking columns
or cords 100 feet long.
Mr. Emery, designer of the Water
town machine, is named in the bill as
designer and builder, and the price,
including the machine and two eighty
ton cranes, is fixed at $1,750,000. In
addition, $200,000 Is to be appropriated
for a building to house the machine.
According to the specifications, this
machine will be able to give and weigh
loads of tension up to 11,000,000 pounds
and loads of compression up to 22,000,
U00 pounds. The machine is to be pro
vided also with tension holders to test
round, square and rectangular bars up
to 3,300,000 pounds, with lengths up
to 100 feet.
Tho bill explicitly states that if the
compression cords of the Quebec
bridge had been tested by such a ma
chine their weakness would have been
discovered In time to save the struc
ture.—New York Times.

CANH0N'S_H0T SHOT,
Speaker
of
the House Ridicules
Uplift Movement
"PURE ROT," SAYS UNCLE JOE
Declares Former President Roose
velt's Country Life Commission Is a
"Flat Failure"—Has No Patience
With Attempt to Relieve Conditions
That Are Not Understood.
Speaker Joseph Q. Cannon in a i%
cent after dinner speech before fhe
national city planning conference In
Washington dealt some hot shot to
one of former President Roosevelt's
pet commissions and other curiosities
of the uplift movement.
The speaker took the following
falls
out of tlie uplift:
"Don't try to relieve conditions that
you don't understand."
"This country life commission that
has been trying to uplift the poor
farmer with theories! I'll take oath
that they don't know what they are
talking about."
"What they have compiled Is pure
rot. The commission Is a flat failure."
"The Idle rich lear about the
same relation to the great mass of
the American people that the fly on
the elephant's trunk bears to the ele
phant."
"The people who do the most harm
are those who give to what they call
charity either for notoriety or to bribe
God."
"It is well enough to plan for the
future of this country," said Mr. Can
non"this country which is to have
600.000,000 Inhabitants in the years
to come. There are a great many
things which can be done in planning
for those years, but no plans that we
lu this generation can map out will
be big enough or broad enough to meet
the coming needs.
"I bid godspeed to this planning
thnt you are working for, but for
heaven's sake don't follow the exam
ple of some and try to relieve condi
tions that you don't understand. I
have no patience with those theorists
who are trying to relieve what they
are pleased to call the agricultural
section of this country. There are
sevorol excellent gentlemen on the
country life commission, but what they
have complied Is pure rot. If what I
have read of It is a fair sample. The
country life commission Is a flat fail
ure because It has dealt with condi
tions that didn't require dealing with
by theorist* and because its members
don't know what they ar§ talking
about.
"Olen the sensational newspapers
and the. magazines and you will read
all about the activities of the Idle rich,
their foolishnesses and their fads.
They are of no real consequence. They
bear ah.,nt the sam.' relation to the
Mr. Cannon paid
1
great muss of the American people that
the fly on the elephant's trunk bears
to the elephant, but they give the
excuse for demagogues, who live not
by the sweat of their faces, but by the
sweat of their tongues, to Inveigh
against economic conditions existing
In this country. Thnt is why they con-1
stitute a real evil. Once In awhile
when other methods of seeking noto
riety have failed they declare them
selves to be friends of the people and
proclaim themselves to be Socialists.
"I don't rogret immigration. I would
not be here If It wasn't for that. I'd
be scattered over the continent of Eu
rope. There'd be a little of me in the
Low Counties, a mite in France, a por
tion in Ireland, some more in England
and Scotland. The great bulk of our
Immigrants live by the sweat of their
faces, and any one who does that Is
worthy to be given recognition in this
country of onrs."
a
high tribute of
respect and admiration to Mrs. V. (J.
Slinkhovltch of New York, a settle
inent worker, whose work centers in a
block In a New York city street In
which more than 1,000 persons live,
Mrs. Slmkhovlteh spoke In a quiet but
effective manner of her labors in this
congested district, where the work of
the settlement worker Is so often bew
with trials that demandt forbearance
and endless patience.
The speaker found every reason to
believe that the world is growing bi
ter each day and deprecated the exist
ence of pessimists whose chief mission
Is to flaunt discouragement before the
eyes of the public.
Mexico aiTa
"Cattle Country.
"Mexico is fast becoming the great
cattle country of the American con11
nent, and southern Mexico is the id«*a 1
cattle country of Mexico," said G. B.
McDermott of Naeozarl, who was In
Houston, Tex., recently. "As the farm
ers and sheepmen have forced the cat
tlemen of the great southwest of the
United States to move their ranges,
they are naturally seeking the must
favorable localities, and northern Mex
ico seems to appeal more forcibly t"
them than any other section. Cattle
are being moved rapidly into Mexico
from the United States, and the cattle
men of Mexico are now paying more
attention to their herds than formerly
with the result that an excellent qual
