BOOX TYPE WRITERS.
USED IN RECORDING PUBLIC
DOCUMENTS IN STATE DE
PARTMENT AT WASH- .
In Use in Twenty Eight Counties
in Oregon-Seven Constantly
in Operation in Multnomah .
T. T. Vincent, ' recorder, under
stood what he was about when he
petitioned the commissioners of
Benton County ta purchase a book
type writing machine for use in
making records in the recorder's
office, in which petition he . said,
"Type . writing machines Tiave
bsen invented fir writing on books,
and tbe records made by the sam
are far superior to written records,
as evidenced by the work done by
said type writer in the - clerk's
office." Information gathered on
the subject, proves conclusively that
Recorder Vincent was right, and
that he has behind him the order of
William R. Day, Secretary ofSlate
in President's .McKinley 'a cabnet,
and subsequently a member of the
celebrated Paris Commission. This
was an order installing book type
writers in the State Department at
Washington, for use in copying rec
ords to be laid away in the govern
ment archives. It baa tbe effect of
placing before the people of Benton
county in its true light, the certain
"four columns" in the Corvallls Ga
zette devoted to politics, which re-
ently undertook to make the pub
lic believe that the records made by
such machines are not durable be
cause the "ink wonld fade." Book
type writers are being used in the
court house for record work in 28
counties in Oregon. In Multno
mah county, such machines of the
kind are constantly in use by the
county clerk, and all the deeds,
mortages and matters of record are
recorded with book type writers.
Three hundred and eighty book
type writers are in usa in tbe coun
ties of Ohio, and it ta confidently
asserted by those in posit lton to
know that 85 per cent of the coun
ties in everv state in the Union are
using machines of the kind, for all
The question of permanency of
type written records has been set
tled beyond the peradventure of a
doubt. -The legislature of Massa
chusetts appointed a commission of
expert chemists who reported to the
legislature in substantially the
same findings as the government
chemists, and on the strength of
thiB report, a law was passed legal
zing records written with book type
writers in Massachusetts. This
was necessary in that particular
sta c , because of a law on the statute
book i of ancient date, providing
for 1 :cording with pen andlfek.
-ok type writers have bcome
such 1 necessity in counties for recor
ding work that county commission
ers have been purchasing the ma-
chi - for the county officers, be
liev -sr them to make a more per-
mari ut record, and saving fully
one third in the number of. books
required, and consequently in tbe
vault storage space. Board of
county commissioners have purcha
sed for tbeir respective counties,
all the machines installed in Wash
ington, Oregon Idaho and Montana,
wuth the exception ot two counties.
In he oase of the two counties ex
cepted. tbe officers purchased the
machines at their own expense and
have provided tnem for the
free use of the county. One of
these offi sera is Victor Moses of
Benton county, and the. other, the
county recorder of Jackson county
Minions ot dollars nave been in
vested in the book type writer
business and thousands of machines
are in use. The colloseal propor
tion ot this business and use pre
cludes any question of the perma
mency of the product Not only are
they in use In the counties of the
various states, but are used in the
recording work of such cities as
New " York and Chicogo, and in
the work of the historical aocietie a
of the United States. They are
also need in government depart
ments at Washington, where they
are used in making records of pub
lic documents filed in the archives
of the State department. An edi
torial from the New, York Sun,
April 18, 1899, entitled "The Type
Writer at Washington'," has the
following: '-Perhaps the strongest
opposition to the type-writers adop
tion was shown in the-department
of State where only after numer
ous scrutinizing tests'and compari
sons had been made by authorizad
agents, was the record typa writer,
permitted to supplant the pen. One
of the testa referred to involved the
question as to whether or not the

tbe writing done with Suid ink.
At the Columbian University it
was sought . by the chemists to
ascertain which was the more per
manent the imprint made from tbe
ribbons or the writing done with
the ordinary fluid ink of tbe Stite
department, aud in each case sam
ples of penmanship and type writ
ing having been tested side by side
the later offered much stronger re
sistance to tbe acids. While
the pen writing was almost
entirely effaced, the type -writ
ing ehowed scarcely any sierjs of
im pared legibility. A striking ad
vantage claimed for the machine is
that the stroke of the ty pe forces
tbe ink below tbe surface of the
paper, and places it beyond the
reach of chemical agents, so that
acida or alkalies, which will not
destroy the paper itself, can have
uo apprtoabie effect upon the type
written characters. -
In Commending the machine to
Secretary R. Day, the chief clerk
of the State department aaid: "So
far as adaptability of tbe record
type writer is concerned, to the work
for which it ia designed, there can
be no question. It is adaptable and
