master mechanics as members, was then read
by Mt. Britton.
The minutes of the preceding convention
were next read by the Secretary and the same

The President then delivered the following
address: ~
Gentlemen of the Convention : Again wc are permitted
to be gathered together in this our third anniversary,
aud it is with no ordinary feelings of-satisfaction and
pride that I greet you in open convention.
Pride,. fir6t because you nave conferred upon me the
honor of presiding, nnd secondly, because there is be
fore me evidence of the not only unabated,but increased
interest, as manifested by the number-present, and en
larged by the addition of many now faces that have not
.beforemet.vith.us. • -r ..
Satisfaction, because our organization, undertaken
witliiuauy fears andmlsgivingain . September, ’6B, is no
longer au experiment, but a reality.
Our session of ’69, also anticipated with some doubt,
whs a source of encouragement and now this gathering
of eighteen hundred und seventy,as though drawn by
“brotherlv love,” because appointed here, proves and
confirms the wisdom of all our previous efforts, aud es
tablishes the Mastur Machinists Association of America
upon a basis not to be disturbed, aud therefore'a fixed
fact. .
Wear©now an organization that cannot fail to be
productive of good results-, that will be enhanced in pro
portion to our perseverance. Known only to ourselves
for a time, w e are now a reorganized body of men,as be
ing anxious to serve faithfully the interests of our.
employes-and to cater to the comfort and safety of the
traveling public. We are recognized by the superior
officers of the different lines of railway with which we
nre connected, and thus sustained- and encouraged by
the countenance thoy have given our undertaking.
... ~o:riepres
our proceedings, and we have many indications that we
are recogized by the traveling public, who appreciate
all efi'nrtVmade in their behall tending t«> their comfort,
speed and safety in traveling.
Favorably the owners of railroads have watched our
progress and intentions, because thoy observe a deter
mination on our part to promote their interosis by a
faiihful desire to improve upon, and care for their pro
pertv. confided to us In trust.
• With all these surrounding encouragements, eontle
men. we may well foil proud of our institution, though
yet in its infancy, but already indicating such perma
nence and beneficial results.
•The object of our Association is not of a mercenary
character ; we gather together that by united experience
wo may gain knowledge in our profession,and this
knowledge thus acquired cannot be stamped as a selfish
desire, for it la to be directly imparted to those in our
employ, and indirectly applied to the interests of the
community wherever penetrated by the iron rail and
traversed l»y the locomotive.
Let us their feci greatly encouraged in our enterprise,
and enter upon the work with renewed zeal, and a per
manent and gratifying success will crown our efforts.
The reports of the various committees submitted to
the last Convention at Pittsburgh wero very satisfac
tory, and abounded in useful iulormation. These haVe
been printed in pamphlet form, and copies may be ob
tained by application to the Secretary.
Avery member should recognize it as his duty, and
esteem it u pleasure to render ull the assistance possible
to the various committees, by promptly contributing
any uew ideas in his experience upon any topic that
may come before the convention, thus adding to tie*
commou store-house of mechanical knowledge. After
"the committee appointed last year shall make their
report to this convention, an opportunity will be given
for discussion, and 1 would especially urge upon all to
participate with a perfect freedom. A member who
entertains different views from those advanced by the
committee, or whose experience would suggest any
modification or addition to their conclusions, will,
" withbuniesifationVl theih ktiownTor bur’
common benefit. It is only by a free interchange of
thought aud views, openly expressed in a free and candid
discussion, that wc cau arrive ut the object of our asso
ciation, which is. the promotion of knowledge ami the
nearest possible approach toji perfect system of man
agement in the practical workings of the machinery de
partment of railways, in detail.
We may thus arrive at important and valuable facte
and conclusions that could not bo reached by any otle-r
channel. I hope, therefore,that no one,through modesty
or otherwise, will hesitate to give ns the beuefit oftheir
experience upon any topic that may come before the
convention, or that may be suggested in their own
1 would call t.be attention of members to the fact tliut.

our undertaking. In some instances it has been coupled
with ,k labor unions ’ and otlmr offensive .projects that
are entirely foiejgn to our Intention.

it a point to disabuse the minds of such officers of their
erroneous impressions, and explain fully the object and
importance ol our meetings and diseus.dous, and wolicil

The next-business inroraer.was . the l reading
of the Treasurer's report. On motion of O. H.
P. Little it was received andndopted.
Mr. Dodge offered the following: “ The.
question hating been raised as to the pro
priety of allowing visitors to attend the de
liberations pf the association, it is moved that
the privilege he temporarily accorded each
member ot inviting such guests as he may
elect, and that the subject be referred for final
action to a committee upon revision of by
laws.” Agreed to.
- After some discussion, on motion of Mr.
tho resolution was reconsidered.
On motion, a committee of three, consisting
of Messrs. Rennie, Brown and Hays, were ap
pointed to revise the Constitution and By
Tho Committee on Boilers and Boiler Ma
terials, appointed at the last Convention, con
sisting of Messrs. Hays, Anderson and Jau

ral valuable suggestions relative to the con
struction of locomotive boilers. The report
also treated of the relative merits of English
and American locomotives, and claimed pre
ference for the latter on account of their being
better adapted for work on roads of any con
struction, the English engine being only suited
for roads constructed in a firsUclass manner.
The report was received and the Committee
discharged. ,

Upon re-assembling Mr. Yale moved ithat
the Convention continue im session, daily,
H orn 9 A. M. until 2 J‘. M., until its Uusinessis
ended. Agreed to. ,
A discussion followed on “ boiler plates,”
m which a number of the delegates took part.
1 he next business in order being the report on
steel tires and axles, the committee reported
progress and asked for time to finish their
report. On motion, the committee was con
The Committee on Cylinder and Stuffing
next reported, and their report received and
adopted,and the Committee discharged. A dis
cu.ssion then followed, when twenty-four dele
gates argued in favor of spring and thirty in
tavor of steam packing. Many of the delegates
favored what is known as the “ Dunbar Patent
Packing.’’ Others were in favor of the use of
the “ Steam’s Patent Packing," thements and
demerits of both being pretty generally venti
Mr. Gregg, of the Erie R. R., moved that a
vote bo taken, so as to ascertain how many of
the members favored the Stevens, the Dun
bar, or the Spring packing.
To this motion Mr. Sellers objected, stating
that he was not in favor of having the Con
vention advertise any man’s particular claims.
Mr. Gregg disclaimed any such idea and
only desired to know the respective choice of
each master mechanic present.
Mr. Hayes entertained the idea that differ
i-tice in water and iron formed the principal
'rouble with regard to either packing. On one
t oad where the water was good, the Dunbar
[lacking would suit, whilst on another it might
not be found to answer. He was of the opinion
'bat the question might be discussed until
doomsday and no conclusion arrived at. As
i o the matter of voting he did not think the
convention ought to take any such vote.
The President announced that there were
several gentlemen present who favored both
.Steam’s and Dunbar’s packing, and hence
i liey eould-not-oast a-vote-in—favor-of-eitlier.-
On motion, tho one made by Mr. Gregg, was
laid upon the table. The report of the Com
mittee on Boiler Incrustation was next called

chairman of the committee had, through a
change in his position, been unable to attend

ci Mr. Tour. Mr. T. consulted with Mr. Hav,
nf the T. AV. & AY. R. R., but the latter gentle
man, through ill health, could afford no as
-ist'ance, consequently the labor devolved
upon Mr. T. alone, who presented, not a re
port, but a communication pertiueut to the
- object. The paper recommended the use of

might be purified, as tliat element and its cou

The next business in order was the report 1

was read by the Secretary.

adopted and the Committee discharged.
