Olean Democrat, The (Newspaper) - May 8, 1890, Olean, New York SIXTEEN f f this .ijrc- m TWO KEVOLUTION PEESS JUST PLACED IN THE HERALD'S JOB ROOMS. ments, much of the time being superin- tendent of the press rooms. When he was asked why the Whitlock presses had been selected in preference to others held in high estimation by printers he said: "I had no choice in the matter. Mr. Daggett purchased the machines and put them in here. When I expressed doubts as to the wisdom of such action, he sententiously replied that we could try them, if they did not work we could fire them out. Had I been allowed to buy the presses I machines with should which I have selected was famihai However, after using and thoroughly testing these presses I am compelled to admit that a great mistake would have been made in buying any other. Now I feel more than ever that a workman should never condemn a piece of ma- chinery until he has tested it thoroughly. Printers are prone to pass judgment on machinery -which they have never ex- amined or operated. I have a weakness that way myself but am always ready to acknowledge my error, as in the case of the Wbitlock press which I now believe be the most honestly constructed and jffective piece of mechanism I ever used.'1 The postal cards are printed in large sheets from heavy steel plates and the strain on a press is very severe. These presses however have stood the test with- out the slightest injury and it speaks volumes in their favor. The handsome machine hi the HERALD office was adjusted and put into running order by Mr. 'Whitlock himself, the pres- ident of the company. In conversation with a reporter he said: ''I began my mechanical career when very young as an apprentice in my father's factory: he was at the time considered one of the best mechanical draughtsman and en- gineers in New England. Under his tute- lage I was taught mechanical draughts- manship and the best methods of ma- chine work. Several years ago I con- tracted to build another company printing presses for This was not entirely satisfactory and a little later I met Mr. G. E. Osbdrne, a son of one of the Jmost distinguished journalists of New Eng land, who had been educated by hi- father solely for the printing busines: and journalism, and induced him to join orces with me and go into the rinting press business legitimately. After examining the product of every prominent manufacturer of Printing presses, I soon made up ny mind that we could not secuie anj audience against the old manufacturers unless we made better machinery than the best and trusted to the honor of the printer to give us recognition in due time. We put in the finest material and workmanship that the very best me- chanical appliances could produce. 1 designed my presses to most improved systems. conform to the I simplified in- tricate movements and designed simpler mechanism whereby the pressman can save time in making ready forms, ad- justing rollers, etc. I designed a new- ink distributing motion, by which the same distribution can be secured from the front as by dividing the rollers and inking from both sides of the press and necessitating two fountains. These fea- tures have established the presses of our manufacture, and lead me to believe that honest work will be recognized, no mat- er what industrial field it is done in. lie evidence in this case is pronounced. Wherever have placed our machines other makers find it a difficult task to sell theirs. This is notably the case in New England and Canada which are the only sections we have consistently can- vassed. We have enlarged our work shops and foundry, but even now we are crowded and will soon have to add to our present quarters." This is the first o-revolution print- ing press ever purchased by any news- paper in Cattaraugus county and it ex- ceeds in value all the presses combined on ned by any other newspaper in this county. This press though large enough for printing the DAILY HERALD will be used exclusively for fine job work and is peculiarly adapted to printing illustrated commercial catalogues and other book work of which the HERALD makes a specialty, being unequalled for superior work and low prices. The HERALD now has three large presses two of which are used exclusively for job printing and the third is kept busy with the numerour forms used in printing the eight page Equal pi t has aUo i i n u ado in tho department Tluit tins is fullv appif-ciatt'd is amply cvim the wounded man.

I would not meet them; that according to dispatches from Europe they had stated they were going to sue me I said let them go ahead and sue me, and I will see them in court.

I received a letter -saying they would call Saturday Mr O'Halloran came on Sat- urday af.d introduced a man and woman as Mr and Martin.

All Former Demonstrations Crowd is a Quiet One, and the Police Have Nothing to Speakers Mostly Moderate in Their language. The Movement in Spain- LOXDOK, May should be- come a memorable one in the history of demonstrations on the part of the laboring classes of England, for it has never bee" equalled since the days of monster out- pourings of the people which character- ized the leform movement of 186" The most moderate estimate of the number of people taking part m the Hyde Park meet- ings is half a million, of which came in processions and gathered at will. This, is a very conservative calcu- lation, however, and some observers ac- customed to gauge large crowds, do not hesitate to that fully people participated in the demonstration. There were 1 jO biinds of music in the processions. The affair was a three-headed one, the largest number of men being under the leadership of the trades distinc- tively non-Socialistic body.

This was largely the necessary result of the paucity of speakers. It was impossible for half the people to hear what was said. and in fact no one seemed to care much about listening The gathering together in the public place and exchanging greet- ings and opinions seemed to be the idea uppermost. The marching, or coming and going, continued from 2 o'clock until after night fall. The best speakers were those furnished by the central committee, in- cluding the more noted of the moderate Socialistic leaders.

FOXBORO, Mass., May A man named Cormack murdered his 13 year-old daugh- ter and then killed himself. The Cormack family consisted of the father, mother, a boy of 17 and a girl of 13. The father has been addicted to drink in the past, but for about a year has drank but little, but has taken considerable morphine. He has un- til recently worked hi the mines, but has been idle the past few days The mother also worked in the hat factory The boy has no settled work and the girl attended school. The family had breakfast together and the mother went to work as usual, the boy went fishing, the girl went to schoo and the father stayed at home. bed v.-hicn. he presently am. uls daughter gave him proper attention and pulled his bed near the door, that he might see her work in the next room. A few minutes before 12 he arose and closed the door. Five minutes later she heard him fall heavily upon the floor. She ried to open the door, but could not, as he was lying against it She went aronnd ihrough another room and was shocked at seeing her father lying on the floor, his life blood rapidly flowing from a gash in his throat, and the razor with which he committed the deed lying beside him After closing the door it is thought that he took his razor from the bureaw and. stepping before a mirror, severed both arteries and the trachea atone stroke of the deadly weapon.
