I sse a great deal said about sending
money away.in The Asi-obixn, and the (lif
erent theories of its effect on the country.
All the difference I can see in spending the
money at home, is the profits the mer
chant makes over and above an indi
vidual. All articles that are not manu
factured here are sent for away from
home, and if a man can send away and
get his goods and pay the expenses and
can save money by it, the difference is in
keeping at home the extra prohts by giv
ing it to the middle men until men can
sell their goods so that individuals can
not send away and buy by the small
amoant and make a profit "you can ex
pect that money will be sent away. I for
one do not believe in giving to another
extra profits simply because he is in busi
ness at home. If you can sstb money by
sending it away 'do you send away any
more money than yo'ur merchant? Only
the extra profits that he makes over and
above what it costs you to send for it;
that don't affect the country much. And
the same in regard to hard times; extra

Whatever may have been the cause
that kept Astoria patriots from organise
ing a military compaay thus far, it is
evident that some step ought to be taken
soon to organize racha company in the
second city in Oregon. "Would not Col. C.

to bring life into what has so long been a
dead corps? Surely there is material

TWO WK OP DOING VOU-WHII-H
i i ut. fii-ti.'
A few Points of interest For the Careful
Perusal of fanucrynipn in ('eneral.
Having been employed in the canning
business for about nine seasons, on the
Columbia river, I beg leave to give a little
of my experience in regard to the testing
of cans in which branch of the business
the greater part of my work has been. I
have made the testing of cans a special
study, and have found that the old way
of testing cans for all the very fine leaks
by sounding the cans with a steel, or any
metallic instrument, and then judging
by the sound, whether the cans were per
fect or not, by the sound produced, to bo
a very imperfect way of testing, which
all of our cannerymen must admit. Oth
erwise our reclamations would be simply
nothing for blown tins, except wherein
careless workmen will occasionally in
handlingihe tins jam them about tho
float as the soldering of tho top, and by
soldering make tho cans become leaks;
and ag.un occasionally iu nailing up the
cases a nail may be driven into a can.
From these results we may expect blown
tins, however perfect the cans may have
In testing the cans in this way wo will
not trust this very important part of tho
work to any but an expert in tho business.
We must know that this man has had
nlenty of experience in testing, aiuMuat
his previous work has shown for itself
that he is trustworthy before we dare lo
trust to him.
Now we know that a man in testing in
this way, if he is not -very careful with
his work, will pass a great many of thoso
fine leaks as first class goods, and then
the result will be a reclamation of so
many blown tins.
In case that the tester is not one of the
very best he may by imperfect work in
one or two weeks throw a reclamation on
the firm of several hundred dollars. And
so in a month or six weeks the reclama
tions on his poor work would double or
treble his gammer's work. Now we will
look a little farther into this way of test
ing for leaks. The next day after the
cans have been cooked and are perfectly
cool, the first test is given them, and all
of the leaks that can be discovered are
taken out and sent to the mender's bench
and are mended, and the rest of the cans
aro carted off to the packing room and
are stacked up and lett to ptand a day or
so, when they are tested, and all aro
handled over and piled up again to
stand n few days more, when they are
subjected to the same overhauling and
repiling up again. Many cannervmeii go
through with this tedious way of sound
ing and repiling of all of their cans from
three to six times before they will let
their men case them up for shipment.
And then after all this labor and careful
work, find that they have a reclamation
of b'own this. Now again we must con
sider that it is no srdall amount of labor
to handle over from one to two millions
of cans in thred or four months, nnd
handle and test them from three to six
times over, and again, cans are often
stacked up after having been tested three
or four times, and allowed to stand for n
week or more before the last test is given

again, this allowing of cans to stand for
a wpek or so to develop themselves, be-
ing a benenton one way2 unos io a
loss in another wey: it is simply this, in
allowing the cans to develop themselves
we are very apt to have a great many of
them that will develop themselves a little
too much and beoonie swell heads in the
meantime, and in that case every can
that begins to foment is a.dead loss to
the firm, and should be consigned to a
watery grave at once.
We have gone through with the routine
of testing by the old way of sounding
the cans and then judging whether tho
cans were perfect or not by tne sounds .
the ear can catch, and that, too, during

on their own accord, and then we can tell

THE IMPSOVED WAT.
Now, having civon a pretty correct ac
count of the old and quite imperfect nnd
expensive way of. testing cans for leaks,
we will take'np and compare the new
and far more rapid and perfect process
of tasting for all of the ldaks, by which
we will bring into use for the purpose
compressed air, by which means only ono
test is necessary to take out all of the
leaky cans, whether the leaks be larfje or
small. Now this one test' should be
made the next day after the cans are
cooked, or as Eoon as the cans havo be
come cold, whieh is very necessary in all
cases. The cans must be perfectly cold
before they can bo tested in any manner.
The new process is simply this: If tho
oanneryman chooses he can leave the
cans as. they are cooked, in his coolers

one-half inch hiolier than the can3 are.for
J the purpose of resting the corners of cool
ers upon, no win uo ibis ior ine purpose
of leaving every can free nnd withouc
any pressure from the caus above tham:
continue in this way until you have
stacked your car as full as it "will hold,
and then run the cans in the retort and
proceed to fill the other cars in the same
way, and run them all into the retort or
any air-tight receptnelo which yon may
deisre for the purpose of testing cans,
viz: tho use of compressed air. We will
then closo end fasten the door and apply
an uir pump or auy air compressor by
attaching a hose from tho air compressor
and inserting the olher end of the hose
into any part of tho retort that we may
choose to tap the retort for this purpose.
We will then get our safety valve to
about IS or 10 pounds pressure, then set
the air compressor to work and let it run
until your pressure gcage registers the
number of pounds pressure that you
wished to use. Then stop the air-pump
and allow tho cans to stand under this
pressure for from fivo to fifteen minntcs,
then we will open a large cxb:ut on top
of the retort and allow tho compres-sed
air to suddenly escape, and on ojA'nin.'
the door and funning out your caus yon
will find that every can "that hits the
I least particle of a leak has become
charged with compressed air to the same
oxtent that you had tho whole retort
charRed anil the result is plainly
seen. The air being .suddenly exhausted
from the retort allows the air in tho cans
to expand and the result is that every
can having the least leak becomes to all
appearances a swell-head, which is posi
tive proof that those cans are defective,
and should bo mended at once and not
left to stand around' and get sour.
And again in testing in this way only
one test is necessary to get out all of the
leaks. We can very easily keep up to
the cooking and we never need to know
what a sour can is or see one single
swell-head about the canneries. In test
ing in this way wo can send our cans
right direct from the testing apparatus
to tho lacquer drains and lacquer and
label nnd case and ship them the same
day if we wish, without any fear of a
reclamation frrm b!oxn tin?." And again
in testing iu this way when th last day's
cooking is done you are but one day be
hind with your testing, thereby saving
the long tedious job of from four to six
weeks in finishing up your testing and
casing, thus avoiding the result of the
old und slow way of testing whereby yon
will see cans getting sour and swells pop
ping np before your eyes every day until
the last can has been sounded nnd half
of them knocked nnd thumped upon
block or on the floor, which in many
case may tuako leaky caits out of those
that were tight. And again in testing iu
the new way there i no danger of injur
ing the cans; tho perfect cans will come
out of the testing apparatus, just as per
fect in shape us the3 went in, and the
leaky cans will come out with one or
both heads bulged out; so there is no
danger of anyboJy pacing thorn as good
cans. All you have to bear in mind is
that cans of different si?.rs will require
different pressures. With very largo
cans we will give a less pressure and a
few moments more tim?, when -w will
obtain a lisrfect tet. And ninrin in
testinj bv the use of compressed air it
then to the mender s bench and lnne it
repaireu ana not ten to sianu nrounu ior
a few days to get sour nnd thereby be
conio a loss.
Cannerymen, read this over carefully
and then comnare the old and the new
ways of testing, and tne known resnlts ot
j the old way with the plain nnd positive
J resHlts of the new way, nnd see if you do
not find n far less expensive method in
' the new way, and a positive guarantee lo
