Some of the Marvelous Mechanical
Exhibits of Last Eight.
THE VISITORS GEEATLr IMPRESSED
Electricity's Eevealed Wonders and Other
MACHIKEEI HALL KEFLECTS EXEBGT
The comprehensive industrial resources of
this city were never more aptly illustrated
than in the business-like and handsome ex
hibit by resident and outside companies
doing business in Pittsburg, made at Ma
chinery Hall last evening. There were
many things little short of marvelous, and,
above all, the peculiar scope or the exhibits
appealed to the desire of the distinguished
visitors to view the practical instead of the
A bewildering blaze of light was emitted
qy the magnificent system of electrical
illumination ot the Thomson-Houston Com-
Jiany. Even the diamonds of the Coidil
eras could not have excelled the brilliancy
of the display. Should the stratas of the
Andes give torth oil or fluid fuel, there
could be no completer equipment secured
than tnat exhibited by the Oil Well Supply
Company. The wealth of the Southron's
would find the best possible protection in
the Barnes Safe Company's immense reposi
tories. Health and hygiene even in the
grateful climates ot South America are cer
tainly to be subserved in the use of the
foods manufactured by the Standard
lanufaeturing Company. The fire
place decorations shown by the
Pittsburg Brass Company were much ap-
Ereciated. There were many minor ex
ibits mentioned in detail below which also
attracted wonder and admiration. There
could not have been a happier idea than a
condensed exhibit of Pittsburg's in
dustrial marvels, or one more success
fully carried to completion. The visi
tors were certainly powerlnlly impressed.
The Westinghouse electric display adjoined
the airbrake exhibit, and a noticeable feature
was the printing of souvenirs in the Spanish
language, the press power being supplied by
an electric motor. The airbrake exhibit con
tained the fullest and most complete repre
sentation of this important detail of railroad
equipment, and was universally admired.
THE THOMSON-HOUSTON ELECTRIC
HUGHES & OAWIHEOP, AGENTS FOB
WESTEBN PENNA., 717 LEWIS BLOCK.
Mechanical Hall is ablaze with electric
light, gorgeous in the lavish brilliancy of its
adornment. Much of this is due to the com
pany whose name heads this article, and the
enterprise which brought them from their
Eastern home to do honor to Pittsburg's
guests is to be commended.
The space occupied by this exhibit is made
conspicnous by the signboard of black vel
vet, upon which are traced in letters.made by
groups ot incandescent lights, the name ana
location of the company, viz:
THOMSON-HOUSTON CO., BOSTON.
In the above space are two 300-light
incandescent dynamos and one 12 light
arc machine, operated by a ninety-horse
power Bussell engine, used in general dis
tribution of light in Mechanical Hall and
upon the signboard.
The two incandescent dynamos are of the
automatically regulated type, which admits
of lighting or extinguishing any number
of lamps from one to the maximum load
without any care whatever on the part of
the attendant. The regulation is procured
by means of a coil of wiie so disposed about
the armature of the machine as to have a
direct and powerlully effective magnetic
action upon the armature. This coil is
traversed by the main current supplying
the external or lamp circuit, and is gov
erned in its action on the armature by the
quantity of electrical current supplied or
demanded by the lamp circuit, thus secur
ing a magnetic action proportioned to the
demands made by the lamp circuit.
The arc light dynamo is also entirely au
tomatic in its regulation by the well-known
method devised some years ago by Prof.
Elihu Thomson for the automatic shifting
of the brushes on the commutator to a point
of greater or lesser potential, according to
the number of lamps in tne circuit.
"The Thomson-Houston Company" also
operate by means of an interesting device
known as the film cut-off, incandescent
lamps of 32 candle power and 65 candle
power from the same circuit with the arc
lamp. In contrast with the ordinary 2,000
candle power arc lights these that are rated at
but 1,200 candle power compare more than
THE THOMSON-HOUSTON IN TEEN ATIONAL
was organized in 1884 and conducts the for
eign business in electric lighting, power
an 1 electric railways for the Thomson
Houston Co. and is the only corporation
in the United States doing an exclusively
foreign business in electric lighting and
power, and an interesting (act, showing the
extent of business done by this company,
may be noted in this connection, namely:
that there is not a country represented by
the Pan-American Congress in which lights
or power supplied by this company is not in
'Messrs. Hughes & Gawthrop, agents for
the Thomson-Houston Electric Light
Company in Western Pennsylvania, are
active in pushing the company's interests,
as is attested by their earnest co-operation
during the term of the late Exposition, and
in their influencing this noble representa
tion of the achievement in the electrical
world as exemplified in this exhibit
THE THOMSON ELECTEIC WELDING CO.
- This exhibit has been hastily prepared,
the company having decided within a week
ot the opening to show their electric weld
ing process in Pittsburg at this time. It is
well to mention that by pushing matters the
apparatus was packed in Lynn, Mass., last
Friday, -November 1, and reached here Sun
day morning, November 3. The car contain
in the packages was placed in care of the
American Express Company, who contracted
to have it brought here on the limited mail.
In the display in Mechanical Hall are found
three machines in lull operation.
No. 1 For welding three-inch extra
heavy pipe and smaller sizes; the same ma
chine is alEoused for welding one and a
quarter inch solid iron or steel.
No. 2 Is for welding half-inch copper or
No. 3 An automatic welder for copper
wire ot one-quarter inch and smaller gauges.
Bv this machine sufficient current is sup
plied to accomplish the welding, and the
moment this is done the current is auto
matically shut off, thus making it impossi
ble to get a poor weld or burn the metal.
WELDING, TEMPERING, BRAZING, FORG
ING, BIVETING, SHAPING, ETC., OF
METALS BY ELECTRICITY.
From an interesting pamphlet issued by
this company a lew excerpts have been
taken for 'the benefit of men who take a
practical interest in this method of employ
ing the electric current.
THE ELECTEIC WELDING PROCESS.
"The principle involved in this new art
is thato. causing currents of electricity to
pass through the abutting ends of the pieces
of metal which are to be welded, thereby
generating heat at the point of contact,
which also becomes the point of greatest re
tistance, while at the same time mechanical
pressure is applied to force the parts
together. As the current heats the metal
at the juncture to the welding temperature,
the pressure ollows up the softening surface .
until a complete union, or weld, is eflected,
and as the heat is first developed in the in
terior ol the parts to be welded, the interior
of the joint is as efficiently united as the
visible exterior. . With such a method and
apparatus it is found possible to accomplish
not only the common kinds of welding of
iron and steel, but also of metals which have
heretofore resisted attempts at welding, and
have had to be brazed or soldered. Pieces
of such metals and alloys as wrought iron,
silver, copper, brass, lead, tin, zinc, germ an
silver, platinum, gold, aluminum and even
cast iron, are not only welded to each other,
but different metals can be welded one to
another in many combinations, extending
the applications of the process to the attain
ment of results heretolore impossible in
metal working; while the tensile strength
of the welds, as shown by mechanical tests,
under the direction of the United States
Ordnance Department, are all that can be
THE ELECTRIC WELDING APPARATUS.
"The machines built by the Thomson
Electric Welding Company are generators
ot electricity, so constructed as to produce
in the most' economical manner the low
pressure currents essential ior welding and
for similar work. They are of sizes and
types suited to the kind and section of the
metal to be worked.
"The dynamos are built to take power from
any source, and the welding machines con
nected by wires to operate wherever it may
be convenient to locate them.
'"The machines now being manufactured
are so graded as to apply to various kinds of
work, from the smallest wire to bars of over
three inches in diameter. For heavier
work, such as large forgings of locomotive
frames, car axles, shaiting, etc, special
forms of machines adapted to the purpose
will be supplied by the company, while by
the use of specially adapted holders and
clamps applied to the standard forms of ma
chines, various shapes and irregular sizes of
metal pieces may be united without dif
ficulty. "The welding or working is much more
economicaland farsuperior to that produced
by the ordinary methods, while the currents
used are of such low pressure as to render
any danger of shocks impossible.
PRACTICAL TALUE OF THE WELDING
"The variety of uses to which this method
applies is almost endless. A brief state
ment, however, of a few of the applications
is here given.
L "Joining of wires of copper, iron or
other metals, or bars of similar or different
shapes and sections.
2. "Making joints at angles with bars, as T
or Y joints.
3. "Making chains of links with double
welds, if desired, both joints being formed
at one operation; and ranging from heavy
cable to jewelers' chains, ot the same or
i. "Constructing or joining, end to end,
pipe of all kinds and ot large or small diam
eters; working or joining, etc, lead pipe;
welding T connections or elbows into lines
of pipe, thus forming non-leaking joints,
available for natural gas and petroleum
lines: welding into long lengths pipe for re
frigerating or brewery purposes; welding
safe-euds to boiler tubes, etc.
5. "Welding rings and hoops for barrels,
casks and tanks; welding carriage or wagon
tires; mending broken tires, hoops or bands;
welding eye rings to the ends ol bars; and
making rings of precious metals.
6. "Uniting steel with iron In the manu
facture of agricultural implements, dies,
7. "Repairing tools, lengthening or short
ening rods, bars, screws or bolts.
8. Welding cast-iron pieces in construct
ing machinery such as frames, fittings, etc.;
uniting, if desirable, cast or malleable iron
to wrought iron or steel.
9. "Welding carriage or wagon gears.fifth
wheels, shift rails, shaitirons, dasher frames,
and practically all similar work done at the
present time by the old forge methods.
10. "Welding carriage and wagon axles of
various sizes and sections, the gauge being
easily maintained by special appliances at
tached to the welding apparatus."
Although this company was only organized
till 1888 it has now a large and well ap
pointed factory at Lynn, Mass., and is run
ning its force night and day to fill present
orders, being unable to supply the demands
made upon it. In consequence of which
the factory facilities will be doubled within
the next 90 days.
Every machine placed upon the market
has given perfect satisfaction. They are
now being placed in the various works for
welding pipe, wire rods, carriage axles, tires
and similar work demonstrating great
economy over old processes.
Machines of this make have lately been
placed in two Pittsburg manufactories, viz.,
a three-inch pipe machine at "The National
Tube Works at McKeesport, and a wire
machine at Oliver & Roberts' mill on the
GENTLEMEN IN CHARGE.
The welding exhibit is under the special
charge ot the company's experts, Messrs. A.
M. Bullard and G. B. Poole.
THE THOMSON-HOUSTON INTERNATIONAL
Under whose special auspices this exhibit
is made, isnow making arrangements for
the early introduction of welding appar
atus into various foreign countries. Nego
tiations are pendinc for the supply of weld
ing apparatus for use in connection with
mining operations in Mexico and the mining
countries of South America.
THE EUROPEAN ELECTRIC WELDING
Have just closed contracts for the sale of
the Thomson patents to Great Britain for
$1,200,000, and similar contracts will be
closed with France, Belgium and Ger
many. NOTICE TO METAL MANUFACTURERS.
As it may be interesting to the various
metal manufacturers of Pittsburg to see in
detail the operations of the different weld
ing machines, a special exhibit will be
made by the company in Mechanical Hall
both in the forenoon and afternoon of Satur
day, 9th instant.
COMPLETE OUTFITS FOR OIL, GAS OR
Exemplified In the Exblblt of the Oil Well
Supply Co Mm.,
91 and 92 Water Stbeet, Pittsburg.
To the practical mind, interested in
modem appliances devoted to an industry
so important as drilling for gas, oil or water
and handling the same in a scientific man
ner, this exhibit commends itself most
forcibly. In a limited space all the
matters pertaining to this business
are lllnstratea in tne various lines
of progression of which this vast field
of industry is so fruitful. Models of the
derricks in common use adorn the outer
portion of the space, while tools of a
scientific order fill the interior. Among
the most conspicuous are the "Mogul Drill
ing Engine" and "The Pipe Cutting Ma
chines." These are triumphs of mechanical
skill,and have secured pre-eminence through
a thorough and practical demonstration of
their use by this company, who are pioneers
and intelligent experts in the usage of
the most advanced ideas in mechanics
pertaining to this branch of industry.
AH the minor accessories of their
craft are lully illustrated in imple
ments they employ to facilitate the
ready artisan who carries out the prac
tical part of this increasing business.
The Oil Well Supply Company is a very
extensive organization. They were the first
and are to-day the only concern capable or
able within itself to furnish irom their own
manufactories and shops, everything neces
sary to drill oil, gas or artesian wells of any
kind, fit them up to produce and supply the
necessary connections and pipes for ta King
away the product when found. TLey have
seven (7) different manufacturing institu
tions connected almost exclusively with the
business, and in those manulactoriesemploy
fully 1,400 men. In addition they have
three main offices or departments,
namely, Pittsburg, Oil , City and
Bradford, with ten branch stores.
They manufacture the wood rigs especially
adaptea for Southern countries, having
shipped complete rigs to Egypt, India, Aus
tralia, China, Pern, Mexico and various
other South American States; and, in fact,
almost everywhere where there is a scarcity
of the soft or suitable timber. They manu
facture engines, boilers, tubing, casing and
pipe, drilling tools, fittings of all kinds; in
fact, they manufacture nearly everything
within themselves and keep everything per
taining to" this line. They are constantly
shipping outfits for drilling for water, oil
or gas nearly all over the world.
This exhibit is merely an indexof the
vast amount of items connected with this
industry, and can be studied with advantage
by those who are seeking tbe best and most
scientific methods of prosecuting the work
connected with this enormous business.
Greetings of a fraternal nature are hereby
extended to the representatives of the Pan
American Congress, with the desire of
bringing about a closer relation between the
great countries of North and South Amer
ica, through this most timely and beneficent
IMMUNITY FROM FIRE AND THIEVES
Illustrated by the Comprehensive Display of
Safes Made by
THE BARNES SAFE AND LOCK CO.
Among the prominent industries of Pitts
burg the Barnes' safes stand as a decided
feature They have made a special exhibit
for the consideration of the distingushed
memben, of thePan-American Congress, and
it has been examined in a consistent man
ner by these gentlemen, who have expressed
themselves in unmeasured terms concerning
the practicalities and stable qualities
which are here exemplified in their highest
sense. This manufacture has a world-wide
reputation. The excellence of the product
patent to all and this point of observation
has attracted universal attention.
The Barnes safe was established in 1845.
about the time of the great fire, which de
vastated the main part of the business center
of Pittsburg. From a small beginning it
now ranks among the largest industries of
the land. Over 200,000 of these safes are
now in use in the United States and flatter
ing testimonials have been received from
the owners of safes which stood the test of
the great fires in Chicago, Boston, Holyoke,
Seattle and Spokane.
CHAMPION SAFES IN THE EXHIBIT.
One of the chief objects is a bank burglar
proof safe, weighing 7,000 pounds, to wnich
is fitted a Sargent & Greenleaf time lock.
This is one of the handsomest bank safes
ever made in this or any other country. It
affords perfect security for valuables against
the depredations of rogues. Several sec
tions of the various parts used in making
these burglar-proof safes were shown and
their stability admired. A vault door
stands in the center at the rear of the space.
In this class of work Barnei stands pre
eminent. There is scarcely a building of
prominence in Pittsburg where vaults are
used but what is supplied with doors of this
A very attractive line of fireproof safes of
various sizes is also in this display and they
have received a large share of attention from
the visitors. It is the finest exhibit of safes
ever shown from Maine to California, and
as these safes are found in every State in
the Union, besides many foreign countries,
the indorsement of their'excellence is most
pronounced. The Barnes Safe and Lock
Company shipped in the last year safes to
Europe, and have a big trade with Mexico.
So extensive is their reputation that they
have recently shipped sates to China.
The Barnes Safe and Lock Co., founders,
manufacturers and sole proprietors of the
Barnes' Fire and Burglar Proof Safes are
located at 124, 126. 127, 129 and 131 Third
avenue, Pittsburg, and their factory is a
model of its kind.
THE STANDARD MANUFACTURING CO.,
Plumbing Goods nod Hollow Ware.
WAREEOOMS, S31 AND 533 WOOD STREBT.
One of the most interesting features of the
display in Mechanical Hall of Pittsburg in
dustries is the space occupied by this com
pany who do a large export trade in plumb
ing goods and hollow ware. It is composed
principally ot "The Standard" porcelain
enameled bath tubs with fine exterior deco
rations in polished brass and marbleized
finish. "The Boyal Albion," which sur
mounts the exhibit, is a gorgeous and lux
urious bath tub and was much admired.
The panels are mythological scenes in bas
relief, finely executed in solid bronze, ad
mitted to be the finest piece ot sanitary
plumbing work ever produced.
Another fine specimen has an exterior of
zinc, white and gold, with solid bronze feet.
A third is marbleized, a fourth plain. All
these tubs have selected hardwood rims,
antique oak. mahogany and walnut, with
full nickel finished trimmings. This is
merely an indexof the elegant display found
in the warerooms of the Standard Manu
facturing Company, at he location above
indicated, where there are some most perfect
model bathrooms fitted up with elegance,
exemplifying the latest improvements in
sanitary plumbing arrangements. They
exhibitin the fullest sense the highest type
of perfection to which this science has at
tained. This company furnishes, gratis, a beauti
fully illustrated catalogue containing all
the items of their extensive manufacture.
It will afford them pleasure to throw open
their spacious manufactory in Allegheny
for inspection of the delegates to the Pan
American Congress. These works are the
largest and most complete in the world of
their class and are operated entirely by nat
THE NATIONAL ENAMEL COMPANY
A branch industry ot the Standard Man
ufacturing Company, exhibit with this
corporation, a collection of their advertising
signs in enameled sheet iron. These signs
are very durable, will hold their color, pol
ish and fresh appearance for a lifetime in
any kind oi atmosphere. They are shown
in many styles, from the largest street sign
down to door plates and name plates for
desks, etc. They are used extensively by
railroad and steamship companies. . Being
comparatively inexpensive they are in real
ity the most economical signs ever invented.
HTTSBURG BRASS COMPANY,
This brilliant, yet thoroughly practical
display, found near center of Mechanical
Hall, elicited highest commendation; the
rich hued cardinal floor covering serving to
make fully conspicuous the shining polished
brass work. Around the exhibit by way of
a fencing have been placed a host of hand
some fenders, made more pronounced by an
inner palisade of parlor lamps tn one hun
dred designs, forming a complete circuit.
What may be termed the center piece of the
display is a quadruple standard of brass,
each upright supporting a double bracket
with lamps; above these the firm name on a
very elaborate sign capped with lamps.
On a table near are found vase and banquet
lamps in several stvles of finish, such as
polished and antique brass, royal copper,
bright and oxidized silver. Some of these
have a delicate brass open foundry work, in
lace designs that are very surprising in such
That this firm makes all sorts, sizes and
numberless patterns of tubing and mold
ings, is clearly demonstrated in this display;
they convey such limitless possibilities in
the way ot ornamental brass furnishment
for private houses, offices and public halls,
for which there can be no more elegant or
artistic adornment; this section includes
gas fitters' work, etc.
Other attractive and useful articles are in
great variety of ideas. Such prosaic and
practical things as umbrella stands, cus
pidores, coal vases and hods, vieing in
beamy with the easels and music racks nat
urally associated with art, or the handsome
jardinieres, which, unconsciously, bring
thoughts of Iragrant flowers.
The specialty of this firm is "The Pitts
burg" mammoth lamp, which has attained
such marked success in the few months it
has been on the market. All of these
lamps have the "Pittsburg burner," and
tbey are intended to light stores, halls,
churches and all large spaces, as they are
of 300 candle power, yet at a cost of but 1
cent an hour tor oil. No other lamp can
illuminate the same space, burning as little
oil, or with as little heat and without odor.
The demand for "The Pittsburg" is so
great that they are running dav and. night
This exhibit will be a revelation when it
is opened to the public. For three yean
the Pittsburg Brass Company, of Alle-J
PITTSBtXRG - . DISPATCH, '
gheny, have been going on in a quiet way,
without ostentation or flourish, and only
now, in honor ot the city's dis
tinguished guests, are they show
ing their capabilities; for the goods
displayed are a fair index of their
manufactures. New things are constantly
designed, a corps of assistants at home and
abroad being devoted to "this purpose. They
have also accomplished the largest brass
spinning done in the United States. They
ship from ocean to ocean (with a good trade
in the Canadas); to all South America, Aus
tralia and the West Indies, with a business
that is steadily growing, and all of this has
been accomplished in such an unobstrusive
manner that Pittsburgers are not prepared
for what is in store for them in seeing this
display, though they must admire once and
for all the business acumen which has
brought the Pittsburg Brass Company in
this brief time to its present position and
power as one of Pittsburg's most important
SOMETHING ENTIRELY NEW.
An Industry That Promises to Yield Big
For the first time there has been a publio
exhibit in this city of the products of Dr.
Goehring's Geometrical Wood Carving Ma
chine, although it was designed and built
here. Ai is well known, Dr. C. L. Goeh
ring is a successful physician in Allegheny,
but he kept his wonderful discovery quiet
until it was perfected. Thinking, perhaps,
there might be some truth in the old saying
that prophets and inventors are more popu
lar away from home, he made his first pub
lic exhibits at the Minneapolis, Chicago,
St. Louis and Dallas Expositions.
The exhibit to be seen at the Pan-American
Exposition will satisfy anyone that this
wonderful machine is going to work a big
change in house finishing. It turns out
over 2,000 patterns of carved lumber, which
can be combined to surpass any other finish,
save hand carved.
The beauty of it is that this lumber is
turned out at an expense only a trifle
greater than that of plain finish, which
brings it within the reach of all. That this
is going to become a leading industry is
quite evident from the great favor with
which the lumber bas been received.
A company has been formed here to oper
ate in Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio
and West Virginia. The works on North
avenue, near the railroad, Allegheny, are
equipped with a splendid dryer, one ma
chine, boilers, engine and everything neces
sary. At a recent meeting of the stock
holders it was decided to sell a small block
of the stock to increase the working capital
sufficiently to meet the demands of the trade.
H. A. Spangler, Cashier of the Third Nat
ional Bank, Allegheny, is secretary of the
company, and has charge ot the stock sale.
THE CHARLES MUNsON BELTING CO.,
No. 204 Smiilifield Street.
This firm have an exhibition oi belting in
Mechanical Hall which is of special inter
est, as they are showing one of the largest
belts in this section, viz: 42 inches wide, of
double thickness, 100 leet in length, and
weighing 850 pounds. The company exhibits
other fine samples of belting. The belts run
ning the Westinghouse engines and dynamos
are a practical illustration of their excel
lence. One notable feature of this belting is
the method of cementing its connections in
lieu of the old-fashioned riveting system. It
is composed of small laps or pieces, never
measuring over 4 feet 3 inches in length.
A TON OF ALUMINUM.
Tog-ether With Various niannfactnred Arti
cles Made From This Metal Display
of the Pittsburg Redaction Company.
A unique spectacle for the world and the
largest Bingle exhibit of aluminum ever
shown is now in .Mechanical Mall. Last
evening the members of the Pan-American
Congress gave evidence of surprise at the
most unusual sight which greeted them at
this space. The Pittsburg Reduction Com
pany are to be congratulated upon the pro
found impression they produced.
In the front of their space were piled ingots
of aluminum weighing about five pounds
apiece, and measuring 6x12 inches, aggre
gating one ton in weight, the most ponderous
mass, of pure aluminnm ever brought to
gether n one collection.
The company has also on view a huge ingot
containing one cubic foot, measuring 17
inches across the top and something oyer 6
inches thick, weighing 150 pounds. If it
were lead of the same proportions it would
weigh 700 pounds.
A showcase contains aluminum in very
many thicknesses of sheet metal, including
their printed business cards, rolled to the
thinness of G-ten-thousandths of an inch,
and books of hammered foil thin as gold
leaf for signs and very many decorative
purposes. The steamer Puritan, of tbe Fall
River Line, running on Long Island Sound,
has the ceiling of its grand saloon orna
mented with the foil and powder of alum
inum. Specimen spoons, knives, forks and other
tableware of the metal in beautitul designs,
backs of brushes, toilet accessories, various
sections of wire in lengths of several hun
dred feet, bars and rods of many sizes,
watch cases, match safes, fine wheels ior
watches and other light machinery; also a
beautitul frame of buttons for military,
secret society and livery service, all ex
emplify tbe uses to which this metal canbe
applied. It takes a most brilliant polish
like silver, but never tarnishes as the latter
is apt to do when subjected to chemical
action oratmosphericinfluences. Aluminum
is non-corrosive and is fast coming into uses
heretofore relegated to sterling silver.
Some medals are also shown in various
designs, and if time had permitted & new
die would have been struck for the members
of the Pan-American Congress, as the com
pany had orders to have them prepared.
The company's improved methods of re
ducing this metal have greatly lessened the
cost of its production which has resulted in
an immense increase in the demand for it in
the commercial world, and has led to its
adoption for purposes formerly considered

EXHIBITION OF THE WESTINGHOUSE
AIR BRAKE COMPANY.
The Westinghouse Quick Action Brnke.
The apparatus exhibited is the material
required for tbe fitting of a train of 15 cars
with the "Westinghouse Quick Action
Brake." The difference in time of applica
tion between tbe first and last car is six
tenths of a second. The brakes are auto
matically applied by tbe separation of the
hose couplings, or the bursting or breaking
of any of the pine connections.
A train fitted with these brakes, running
at the rate of 38 miles per hour, has been
stopped in 319 feetl
