During the past month several
miners who were in the employ
of the Canadian Collieries at this
point have retnrned to their
homes at Nanaimo, South Wellington and Extension. These
men came here only to fill in the
gap. Their coming here was only
with the intention of working
and waiting for the Western Fuel
at Nanaimo and Pacific coal at
South Wellington to commence
operations. Now that these mines
are working the men have returned to their own employment
and place of abode. But with the
continuous influx of miners from
all parts the management of the
Canadian Collieries has been
able to continue to increase the
production. The total output for
the month of October totals
58,061 tons of coal. Showing a
steady increase for the past
twelve months.

Evidence Shows that Riots were
Deliberately Planned and
In an interview given to the
New Westminster Daily News
Judge Howay repeats and amplifies some of the points made in
his recent address from the
bench at the recent Ladysmith
trials, laying stress on the idea
that the riots on Vancouver Island were not impetuous risings,
but were planned and plotted
before hand, and second, that,
as he says, in most instances all
humanity and mercy were lacking, and the women were as cruel
and hardened as the men."
"Judge Howay wished," says
the Daily News, " to correct a
press report sent out from Nanaimo that two of the five men
given two-year prison terms were
boys.' They were 21 and 22
years old, and had throughout the
disturbances been to the fore.
They had threatened, in vile
and horrible language, te#«hor-
rible for repetition, men wholfad
Referring evidently to 'the objection that in his sggggnces on
the union leaders Ju_&e Howay
had held them responsible for the
wild actions of their rowdy followers the judge claims that no
further proof than the evidence
he had heard was necessary to
convince that the riots had been
organized. All had broken out
within less than one day of each
other. At Nanaimo two contingents had wound in and out
around the streets of the town.
They had crossed and recrossed
each other in their route of
march. First they had broken
the windows and stoned the
homes of men who had continued
working. Then delegations had
visited these men and asked them
to quit work. Then again, in a
few hours, they had given them
until the next day to leave town.
The men to even have protection
until that noon were forced to
sign a book in the union hall. It
was while doing this that one of
union's leaders had said that they
had the upper hand now and were
going to keep it: "I am the law
here," he had said.

New Westminster, Oct. 29.—
After four hours deliberation the
jury disagreed in the first of the
striking Cumberland miners cases
in the Asize court today. This
was a charge of assaulting and
intimidating John Thompson at
Cumberland on Nov. 22 last year

and Jack Hall. Thompson alleged
the four men came to his shack
and attacked him when he refus.-

The Nanaimo Herald say: —
The strike in Nanaimo has now
lasted almost six months. Since
ils beginingon the first of May,
all classes in the community,
whether they agreed or disagreed
with the methods by which it
was started, have cherished the
hope that a complete settlement
would be reached. This hope has
perforce to be abandoned, The
mine has been opened, and the
men are gradually going back to
work. Over a hundred men had
returned to their jobs by the end
of last week, and the number
was further increased yesterday
morning. There is quite a large
number who are wavering, wishing to get back to work, and yet
not quite able to make up their
minds what to do about it, To tell
the truth thero is also quite a
big number who are determined
to stick by the United Mine Workers of America. These probably
represent the element which was
willing for a strike in May and
seized ihe opportunity presented
by the strike to join the organization. This is the situation today
and to say the least it could wear
a more pleasant aspect. Still
there are a few considerations
that ought to appeal to the men
on strike. The outstanding fact
in *he whole situation is that an
insuperable deadlock has been
reached, and that the strike is
doomed to failure. At the very
outset the men had very little to
gain by wintting the strike, and
now they must admit that there
is not a hope of victory left so
that they have everything to
lose. It follows therefore, that to
continue the struggle is suicidal
folly. It may be a bitter confession
to make- but it is no use blinding
facts. The men, in our opinion
have been ill-advised from the
start. They have not been struggling for the right to organize, to
band themselves together in a
trade union. Their fight has been
narrowed down to the one issue
of the recognition of the United
Mine Workers of America, and
in considering the company's refusal to recognize this body the
character of the organization and
the methods it has employed in
the strike here have got to be
taken into account. When once
this ground is reached the attitude of the company is easily understood. No reputable trade
union was ever established by
means of such methods as have
been employed here. No body of
miners, in out" experience, were
ever ordered out by a single individual whose very name was
unknown to the vast majority of
the men, We might also add
that we never knew a body of
men (o consent to leave their
work on the order of any one
man. never mind what might be
his position in any trade organization. It has also to be remembered that in the case of Nanai-
Subscription price, $1.50 per year
mo the strike order deliberately
violated a living agreement between the men and the company.
We would ask if by this action
alone, Farrington did not destroy
every chance of ever obtaining
recognition for his organization
from the company? As a matter
of sober reason and common
sense Farrington not only disfranchised the miners here by his
action, but he also at the same
time put the whole case of the
men out of court so far as the
company's recognition is concerned. A further point is that the
strike itself becomes an irregular
proceeding. There i3 only one
way in which a strike can be regularly enforced upon a body of
men, and that is by a majority
ballot. The men were arbitrarily
refused a vote, and a state of
scabdom" instituted by Foster
individually. This position is absolutely untenable. Under the
present conditions no man is at
all bound either by Farrington's
order or Fosters dodger. The men
have their own interests and
their own welfare to consider.
There is a large number whose
only wish is to return to work,
and work is there for them for
the asking. If, as reported, they
cannot get a hearing through the
organization, then they can make
their own arrange-nonts. Thc
only thing for them to do is to
get out of a hopeless situation,
and the only way out is for them
to take their affairs into their
own hands, and do as they wi-h
and not as they are ot'derd.

Tlie Output of Diamonds
I-'orly-flve years have elapsed since
ihe first diamond was found In Africa
and it Is calculated thai since the development of the diamond mines the
world Ims paid more tba*. $1,000,000,*
hoi) for tlieir   products.   This   represents  a   weight ot 90.000,000 carais.
If the Immense loss iron, theft In Ihe
early years be taken into consldera*
tiou, and llie diamonds   taken   from
Brazilian mines and others In different parts of llie world be added to the
estimate, it is probable that not lesa
than 100,000,000 carats would b> a conservative estimate of the ou'i  t.   The
value of these ln the rough would be
more llian $750,000,001);  lo this must
bo added ihe cost of cutting and the
profits to the syndicate, to thc exporter, to the middleman and the retailer.
i    Among (lie most famous diamonds
arc those ot the royal houses of Bra*
gnnza, and among the most valuable
of the Bragatua collection Is lhat called the King of Portugal, which weighs
1.080 carats.   It was fou-.d In Brazil
'and h.,s never'.been eut.   The most
, important cut stone of Brazil Is that
! called  the Star of the South, which
I was found by a negreas in 1863.      t
! was appropriated by the mine owner
i who gave her In return a pension for
;life.   Tlie stone was sold for $15,000,
', the new owner depositing It In  the
1 Hank   of  Itlo Janeiro  and  receiving
i on this security a loan many times
[greater than  the value paid for the
I gem.     The diamond was   at   length
sold tor ten   .In es the amount paid.
It was Anally acquired by a syndicate
and cut in oval form   at a   cost   <-f
$2,000 by a firm ln Amsterdam.   An
Indian Rajah offered more than half
a million  dollars for It. but was refused.     A little- later It was bought for

The Kite In War
Kites are to form part of the regular
equipment of French warships hereafter, being classed as aeronautic apparatus with aeroplanes and dirigibles.
They will be .iowertul enough to take
up an observer and will be used for
purposes of military observation, for
which we are told they are vastly superior to balloons. The greater the
wind the more easily they are handled,
say a writer in 1.illustration.
, The niour.ted kites ot Captain Sac-
onney have been used by the French
army for some months. After a long
series of experiments, they are also
to be used by the navy, which has laid
out an aeronautic programme, as follows: The use of aeroplanes ts to be
limited to coast defense Dirigibles
of great radius of action will be utilized for -inval scouting. Recourse
will be bad to the kite f.>r '.'ghteiing
(lie squadron as a whole a. d for surveying a foreign blockaded coast.
The kite has the advantage that the
wind, the great enemy of other aerial
devices, facilitates Its evolutions.     If
the weather Is calm, the ship makos
Its own wind by Its motion.   A speed
ot IS knots Is necessary to elevate the
observer.   The*,    kites,    dismounted
] and stowed away In some corner, can
i he mounle.l five minutes after being

up.     There are required fifleen min-
■ iiles for sending, getling ready llie has-
J hat, and Installing the observer, who
remains connected with t! e ship by
telephone.    Five minutes Is necessary
for au ascension ot 1.00C feet.     Ten
suffice for hauling in the rig and stowing It away.

Actors and actresses are among the

Ono high-born lady had her great

It was ln Italy that the art of banking, sb known ln our times was first
Introduced. The earliest bank established ln modern Europe waa that of
Venice, which was founded 11 1157. It
originated ln a loan which the state
raised during the great war of the republic with the Greek empire 1156-
.1171, writes W. J. Jenkins, in tbe National Magazine.
The Bank of Genoa was founded
about one hundred and fifty years after the Bank of Venice. Macaulay, ln
his history of England, has a partial
description ot the operations of this
bank which existed from 1320 to 1798.
Previous to the year 1694 there were
only four considerable banka In Europe but on the 27th of July of that
year a charter was granted by William
and Mary for establishing the Bank ot
England, which for opulence and extent of circulation has for many years
been the greatest bank in the world.
It Is a century and a third since the
first bank was established in the United States. This bank is known in financial history as tho Pennsylvania
Bank. It began operating on July
17, 1780.

Animals Make Poor Sailors
Probably many people have not witnessed the performance of animals
when on a sea journey. It would no
doubt be as Interesting to watch their
antics on board ship as on the stage.
Most animals make poor sailors.
Horses and tigers suffer most ot all;
they whine pitifully, nnd their eyes
water continually. Elephants, too,
suffer greatly, but they are very amenable to medical attention.
When the elephant falls seasick, a
bucket of fresh water, containing seven ounces ol quinine and three and
one-nail pints of whisky, Is supplied.
Tlrds, howevoi, delight ln sea voyages . Recently a number ot English
songbirds, such as the lark and robin
were dispatched to British Columbia.
The polar bear, too, enjoys a sea
journey. He Is described as very
gay while on board ship. But most
other animals greatly resent sea trips.
Do not allow worms to sap the vitality ol your children. If not attended to, worms may work Irreparable harm to the constitution of the
Infant. The little sufferers cannot
voice their ailment, but th»ro are many
signs by which mothers are made
aware that a dose of Miller's Worm
Powder Is necessary. These powders act quickly and will expel worms
from the system without auy Incon-
venle:.:: to the child.
There Is a delicious flavor about this
story of a Virginia lady married to a
man who, though uniformly unsuccess*

spoke of his ..Mings.
One day, returning from a trip with
tho usual accompaniment ot an empty
bag, lt occurred to him .lift his wife
would make tun ot him It ho returned
without even one proof of lib oft-boasted skill. So he purchased .. brace of
partridges to deceive his trusting
spouse. As ho threw them on the
table in front ot her he observed:
Well, my dear, you see I am not so
awkward with the gun after al.

the birds with a grimace, after a brlel
examination, you were quite right ln
shooting these birds today; tomor.ow
lt would h vo been too lite.

Birds Build Nests In Gourds
By hollowing out gourd, and suspending them from tre.s and poles, aa
Illinois farmer provides nesting places
for the native American birds, the
wren and the bluebird, and protects
them from thc aggressive English
sparrow, which has a tendency to monopolize the desirable nesting places.
Tho gourds designed for wren*; have
enlrace lioles abvut the size of a silver
qu.rter. This Is sufficiently large for
a wren to poss through but not largi
enough for a sparrow.
The bluebird Is about th. same sl««
as the sparrow, so a different arrangement was necessary. Tli* farmer
discovered that the English sparrows
would not use the gourla If they were
placed In the sun, but that the bluebirds would. Secure nesting places
were therefore provided for the latter
by suspend.ng the gourds from poles
placed out ln the open.

It is liigl. time that some action of a conclusive nature be
taken if we are to secure the main line of the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway through our town.
We believe the importance of obtaining a position on the
main line of a great railroad has not yet appealed in its full
significance to mauy of our citizens, and yet no scheme fraught
with wider possibilities for the future of Cumberl«md, has ever
beeu promulgated. There is, of course, no uncertainty in
regard to our obtaining a railway service from the Canadian
Arorthern Pacific Railway—we have received every assurance
of this—but we believe it rests entirely with the public as to
whether that service shall be given by the main line or by
means of a branch line.
Most of us have experienced to our sorrow some of the
objections to a branch line si/stem and it is needless to enumerate the delays both to the public and freight, the increased
cost of handling freight and the hundred and one other unsatisfactory features inseparable from a spur line service.
A town such as Cumberland is entitled to something
better than this. We have built our homes here and this is
the piace where our investments have been made and where
our interests lie. With each dollar of outlay we have looked
into the future with confidence. We have felt that our mines
would some day prove a greater asset than ever in the past
and bring other and manufacturing industries, with corresponding increases in the monthly pay-roll and added prosperity
to the whole community. With the main line of a gre&t railway running through our town the posoibihty or probability is
not far-fetched. Cumberland would be but comma iuto its own
and enjoying a destiny for which Nature has lavishly equipped
her. But we have allowed the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway to slip past cur doors—in the night as it were—and there
seems to be a prospect that the Canadian Northern Pacific
Railway, in so far as their trunk line is concerned, will si 1
track us as well.
We venture to say that not many of us will see the day
when more than two trunk lines will traverse the Island. It
is too late to e;et the Esquimalt and Nanaimo line through the
town and if Cumberland allows the Canadian Northern Pacific
Railway to pass by on the other side, she is losing au opportunity which, it is sufe to predict, will never again knock at
her doors.
Our Board of Trade have made this object peculiarly their
own and it must be admitted that they have shown a keen
appreciation of the situation and have used their utmost endeavours to secure main line advantages for the town. Their
efforts, backed by the prestige and influence of the Victoria
Board of Trade, the local Conservative Association and the
City Council, have brought the subject again and again before
the Provincial Government as well as the railway executive.
Sir Richard McBride has lent a sympathies ear to our claims
but, to use a slang expression, has "passed it up" to the railway
company. The railway company admit there are no engineering difficulties to be encountered. It is solely a question of
three or four miles of extra right-of-way. In other words a
matter of dollars aud cents.
Is it too much to ask that the Government render some
concrete assistance in this matter? We are a large community
and the aggregate of taxes paid lo the Government—by which
we have always done our duty—would surely justify the guaranteeing of the necessary bonds coveriny three or four miles of
additional trackage, The efforts made thus far, strenuous as
they have been, have apparently uot proven altogether successful—at any rate no assurances to this effect have been secured,
and as long as the matter remains iu doubt, and before it is too
late to ensure success, we believe it is up to every property-
holder in the town to make it his or her personal purpose to
see that the Provincial Government have no room to doubt
the unanimity of Cumberland's citizens on this important

No reasonable man could have taken
exception to Murray's questions, yet
Hetherlngton  fe.t Irritated by them.
Several times lately h( had thought of
, taking Murray into his confidence; the
I Idea of an operation   still   attracted
I him—but—he   (land   cot   trust   any
man.     And of a sudden he knew that
perhaps without cause he was jealous
of the young doctor.
There are certain blanks In Ihe past
which I ca..not fill up, he sal.1 carelessly, but perhaps It is as well.
They were passing Dcopahot Wood;
Ihe speedometer register?d fifty mile
an hour. The wind shriek, '. In their
ears, biting their faces.
By gad! your nerves are all right,
Murray shouted.
And a grim smll: parted .-Ietberlng-
ton's lips.
No! It. would not do to trust any
man—yet awhile. He must bear his
burden and solve the riddle, If It were
The riddle of Deepshot Wood! He
had Intended to solve that first, then
It his hands were clean, win Peggy.
But nnw he came to a quick mad resolve to win the woman he loved before he did anything else. Instinct
warned him that If ' " didn't he might
lose her. The ivomoi Carmen was
dangerous am", so was Dr. Murray.
Charming girl, Miss Mehon? he
fid casually, as the car ran down the
hill towards the valley, leaving the
dreaded moorland behind.
Delightful, Murray cried earnestly;
Peggy and 1 are very old friends.
Hetherington's lips tightened and
his jaws prot.w'cd. Yes, and I have
known her all my life.
That evening he made a,* ..lgements
for leaving Cra.iby and going up to
London early ln the week. He could
not put off sjelng the solicitors and
he was more than ever anxious to
see Carmen; to discover what his relations had heen with her in tin past,
and to put a stop to .hem.
Bn   before doing oc    he   Intended
giving Peggy Mehon a hint as to his
feelings for her, so he .tent a letter to
the Colonel asking them both to take
a motor (rip wit'' him and dine at the
Hall In the evening.     He knew that
Mehon  hated   motoring so he hoped
lhat he would have Peggy to himself
during the afternoon,     lie also asked
. Murray to meet them at dinner.   The
I past was beyond his control, but he
j intended   leaving  nothing  to   chance
In the future.
If Teggy -Mehon was a coquette, sl.e
was at the ■ same time delightfully
frank. As Murray put It In his bluff
kindly way: She hadn't any frills. Perhaps she had never had sufficient of
ibe good things of life, but Hetherlngton came to the conclusion that no
matter in what direction her fortunes
lay, she would not be easily spoiled.
I was wondering whether you would
take me motoring, she confessed Ingenuously when she found herself
alone In the car will. SI • George,
speeding over a level stretch of road.
Where the road was taking them
Hetherlngton had not the faintest idea
but lack of memory didn't worry hlm
now—not while he looked ahead, not
while he moved ahead; not while he
was working and fighting.
Ar.d he quite made up his mind that
he was lighting—for Peggy Mehon.
Of course when I said to daddy a
ti week or two ago — Now perhaps 1
shall get some motoring, he was very
angry—said it was highly improbable
that we should see anything of you at
all and that even It we did, ho would
not dream ot allowing ma to risk my,
life in one oi your motor-cars.
Hetherlngton said nothing, but a
shade of anxiety crossed his face.
Oh, please laugh, Peggy cried. It

Yon are nut talking nonsense, And

Hetherington's fingers touched the

your father change his mind?
You did, she replied quickly. He
expected au :gre and he found—
Hetherlngton turned towards her
quickly, and their eyes met. ln her's

repeated. It was fortunate the road
was straight and level, otherwise there
might hnve been an accident.

Thoughtful Farmer Le.-.rnn About. Tea

Many people exist ln a more or less

before they realize that tea and coff
are often the cause of the cloudiness,
and that there is a simple way to let
the light break in.
A worthy farmer had such an experience and tells about it, in a letter.
He says:
For about forly years, I have had
Indigestion and stomach trouble In
various forms. During tho last 26
years I would not more than get ovir
one spell of bilious colic until another
would be upon me.
"The best doctorr. I could get and
all the int"lines I could bu -, only
gave me temporary relief.
"Change of climate was tried without results. I could not sleep nights,
had rheumatism nnd my heart would
palpltato at times so that It seemed
it would Jump out of my body.
"I came to the conclusion that there
was no relief for mo and that I wns
about wound up, when I saw a Post-

been a coffee drinker, nnd got an idea
from tho ad. that maybe coffeo was
the cause of my trouble." Tea is Just

Prisoners Should be Examined by Physic ens to Determine Whether Insane of Criminal
That crime is a good thing because
It brings us to understand social problems is the sta:tling theory recently
advanced by Prof. Benjamin Moore J-
Untvcrslty College, Liverpool, at the
recent annual meeting ot the British
Medical Association,    A special session was held at which tho treatment
of crime and criminals was discusBed.
Perfect laws would shov.'  that we
were i,c longer progressing, said Doc-
or Moore.    Old crimes are disappearing and new crimes are arising, and I
trus„ new crimes will always rise.
■following Doctor Moors's address.
Doctor Passmort, superintendent of
the Croydon hospital for tlio Insane,
urged that when a man who commits
a crime Is apprehended, someone he
nppointed to examlni the prisoner to
ascertain whether he is Insane or
criminal. After such an examination
Doctor Passmorc said, the proper
treatment could be prescribed.
The Rev. C. B. Simpson, chaplain
Inspector of prisons, who had been invited to give his conclusion- as to the
proper treatment of crime, defended
the present penal system, especially
emphasizing his belief that imprisonment is an effective deterrent to
crime. He maintained that the attitude of many who are sent to Jail Is
that of once bitten, twice shy.
Directly contrary to conventional
Ideas of criminology were the theories
of Captain St. John, the honorary secretary of tho Penal Reform League.
Al the harm done to society by all the
burglars and all the thieves is a mere
bagatelle compared with the harm
done hy the law courts of England, he

but also from people who deal with
The experience of a period of Imprisonment ;.s n suffragette was given
Il 'Woman's Social aud Political Union.'     Miss Allen said:
I have asked suffragists ln Jail what
Is the one thing they most craved
while in prison. Their reply was: Coffee, vinegar or alcohol. As for myself, during the three wee,.s I spent in
Holloway jail I used to lie awake between 3 and 6 in the morning and say
to myself that If I got out I would
rake green chartreuse, although I had
never t-.ken any in my life before. But
when I came out I refrained from doing so because I was afraid. There
is not enough sunshine and fresh air
hi prison, and long sentences undoubtedly cause a weakening of the will.
Pe haps the most Interesting speaker at the meeting was Prince Peter
Kropotkln, the 'amous Russian scientist and enemy of despotism, who
since his escape from St. Peter nn
St. Paul prison, has spent most of his
time ln En;;and. The prince Is 71
years old and has recently recovered
from a severe illness. He was introduced to his audience as an old jail
bird who had cpent two years ln Russian Jails and a further pe'lod ln
French prisons. The prince asserted
that imprisonment Is not an effective
force in deterring crime.
Twenty-four hours 1 bread and water and a plank bed might be a de.
terrent to people accustomed to good
food, he said, but It Is no deterrent
to those who sleep under bridges or '.y

be that of Dr. Coplans, of the University of Leeds, who has Invented an apparatus which detects the p.esence of
Icebergs by giving readings of the saline contents of tho water. The nearer an Iceberg Is to the ship the less is
the amount of salt in solution in Ihe
water. In conjunction with the United States and Canadian Governments
Dr. Coplans has been carrying out a
series or experiments on these lines
which are expected to have most important results, and Whlol. should do
much towards rendering Impossible
such disasters as that Inch overtook
the illfated Titanic.
Another invention of which high
hopes arc entertained Is what Is known
as the mlcrothermometer, an instrument e:.. tiling very much closer readings of the temperature of the water
to bo obtained than Is possible with an
ordinary thermometer. It is also self

regard to thlc instrument, thai when
an Iceberg is being approached tlie Instrument actually records : rise in
temperature, litis, however, h Ing followed by a rapid fall, The explanation is that the water rom a melting
iceberg, leaving the berg at its coldest, gradually travels outward and becomes warmed by the absorption of
beat from the sun.
Submarine signalling, too. for the
prevention ot disasters In foggy weather, Is also being closely studied by
experts, for It Is recognized that there
Is much room for Improvement In Ibe
signalling apparatus used . t the present time on board ship. Fog-horns,
sirens, and other apparatus used for
sending sound through the air to or
from ships at sea are regarded as very i
unsatisfactory, and It is estimated that
In ten years no fewer than 1,000 vessels were wrecked, resulting In the |
loss of 500 human lives, owing solely
to aberrations ot sound or :o echoes.
The modern system of submarine
signalling consists qf b 'lis sunk In at
least 20 feet of water, operated by electricity or pneumatic or hydraulic pressure. It Is said that a submarine bell
can be heard at a greater distance
than any fog-horn, siren, or an;- other
generally used air signal or device.
and It is recurded that one if these
bells was heard at a distance of from
ten to flftx-ii miles.
The receiving apparatus Is very simple, consisting of two cast-iron tanks,
which are placed below the water-line
on either side of the ship's bows and
tn contact wllb the shell of the ship.
In each tank Is the microphone, which
1.1 connected by an electric telephone
system and the bridge. There the navigating officer has suitable receivers
and switches which enable him to listen on either side of Ihe ship. If he
alters the course ot the ship on hearing the bell so that the Intensity of
the sound is equal on both sides ot the
ship then the bell lies straight In front
and according to the Intensity of the
various sounds he is able to avoid

Forty Sixth Anniversary of Great Ammunition Company
Just forty-six years ago, with the
spirit of reconstruction then abroad ln
the land as a moving influence, began
the lirst successful manufacture ot
metallic cartridges in the United
mates. Some while before, when
journeying through the West, Marcel-
lus Hartley had seen a roughly made
metallic shell or case made to contain
the charge of a gun and had given this
idea considerable thought. After the
Civil War some ten years later, realizing the importance of metallic cartridges for the new breech loading
arms, Mr. Hartley's firm bought up the
plants and patents of several unsuccessful factories and on August 9th,
1867, the Union Metallic Cartridge
Company was incorporated, -, half century after the first Remington gun was
made at Ilion, N.Y*.
In the CO'i, skin cartridges and those
ot parchment and linen holding the
powder and bullet and percussion caps
had been made, together -'itli a few
inferior rim Are cartridges; but now
came this new industry nore Important than all the rest combined. A
mechanical genius was sought and
found in the person of Alfred C. Hobbs
whose master skill had brought him
the $1,000 in gold offered by the English Government for the man who
could pick the lock ot the bank of
England. Nearly all the special machines required were the inventions if
Sir. Hobbs. At first, rim Are cartridges were turned out, but with Col,
Berdan's revolutionary invention of the
primer, central Are cartridges became
the bulk of the output. The far-famed primers developed by the Remington U.M.C. experts have enabled the
company's ammunition to go through
all climatic conditions and prove absolutely normal in any test.
In 1873 equipment for m:.king shotgun shells was installed and in the
early 80's shotgun load3 were supplied.
As our readers well know the two
great companies, the Remington Arms
Com. any and the Union Metallic Cartridge Company, amalgamated several
years ago, and since have leo> doing
business as one.
Muscallonge,   Pike  and   Pickerel  are
all Closely Related.
Three divisions of the piko family
are known to anglers, and these are
named muscallonge, pike and pickerel. The gamest ot the group, of
course Is the muscallonge, and students claim that two varieties are
found. This may or may not be
true, but they confuse the Great
Northern pike with the muskle ln
many parts of the country.
In this section we generally consider the muscallonge as the largest
member of the pike family as specimens as large as 100 pounds have
been reported, but ln Europe the common pike often runs to a corresponding size.
Muscallonge, pike and pickerel of
course, ara all more or less similar
ln shape, and their fins are of the
same number, the base body coloring
of green or yellow also being similar in the different specie:,. In all
too, tho belly color ranges from white
to cream. .But this Is as far as the
similarity goes. In tho muscallonge
the body markings are always and
invariably a dark brown or black and
are either round spots or vertical
blotches, according to one well
known author.
