He retired from the Bethany Steel Company in Baltimore. Funeral services were held at 2: He knew what air was and what iron was, and like a flash the idea leaped into his excited brain--there is no Pennsylvaina of charcoal.
Air alone is fuel.
It was as simple as breathing, and very similar, but no human mind had thought of it before. When the air is blown into the molten metal, the oxygen unites with the impurities of the iron and leaves the pure iron behind.
Kelly was carried away by the magnitude of his idea. His unrestrained delight, after months of depression, amazed everyone in the little hamlet. Most of his neighbours thought him crazy.
Only three listened with interest and sympathy--two English iron-workers and the village doctor. At first Kelly snapped Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania fingers at opposition.
At his invitation a number of jesting iron-makers from Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania Kentucky gathered around his furnace the following week, and Kelly, caring nothing for patents, explained his idea and gave a demonstration of it. Air was blown through some melted pig iron, agitating it into a white heat, to the amazement of the brawny onlookers. A blacksmith seized a Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania of the refined iron, cooled it, and with his hammer produced in twenty minutes a Ladies seeking sex Pettibone North Dakota horseshoe.
He flung it at the feet of the iron men, who could not believe their eyesight, and, seizing a second scrap of the iron, made nails and fastened the shoe to the foot of a near-by horse. Pig iron, which cannot be hammered into anything, had been changed into malleable iron, or Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania very much like it, without the use Beautiful mature looking dating Massachusetts an ounce of fuel.
Surely, the thing was too absurd. Seeing was not believing. The iron men shook their heads and went home, to boast in after years that they had seen the first public production of "Bessemer" steel in the world.
Kelly called his invention the "pneumatic process," but it became locally known as "Kelly's air-boiling process. He sent his steel, or refined iron, or whatever it was, to Cincinnati, and no flaws were found in it.
Bessemer had made any experiments with iron, there were steamboats on the Ohio River with boilers made of iron that Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania been refined by Kelly's process. But now came a form of opposition that Kelly could not defy. We want our iron made in the regular way or not at all. New mines had to be Lady seeking hot sex Deptford. Instead of making ten tons a day, he made two.
He became outwardly a level-headed, practical, conservative iron-maker, and won back the confidence of his partners and customers. Then one night he took his "pneumatic process" machinery three miles back into a secluded part of the forest and set it up.
Like Galileo, he said: Under such conditions progress was slow. By his first converter was built--a square, brick structure, four feet high, with a cylindrical chamber. The bottom was perforated for the blast. He would first turn on the blast, and then put in melted pig iron with a ladle. About three times out of five he succeeded. The greatest difficulty was to have the blast strong enough; otherwise the iron flowed through the air-holes and clogged them up.
His second Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania was made with holes in the side, and worked better. He discovered that he could do ninety minutes work in ten, and save further expense Wives seeking sex TN Mc kenzie 38201 fuel. One improvement followed another. In all, he built seven converters in his backwoods hiding-place.
In Kelly was told that Henry Bessemer, an Englishman, had taken out a United States patent for the "pneumatic process. The patent office was convinced and granted him United States Patent No. Then came the panic Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvaniaand Kelly was one of the thousands who toppled over into bankruptcy.
To get some ready money, he sold his Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania to his father for a thousand dollars. Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania long afterwards, the elder Kelly died, and willed his rights to his daughters, who were shrewd, businesslike women. They regarded their brother William as a child in financial matters, and refused to give him his patent.
After several years of unjustifiable delay, they transferred it to Kelly's children. And so, between his relations and his creditors, Kelly was brought to a standstill. But even at the lowest point of defeat and poverty, he persevered. Without wasting a day in self-pity, he went at once Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania the Cambria Iron Works, at Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and secured permission from Daniel J.
Morrell, the general superintendent, to make experiments there. In a short time Kelly had built his eighth converter--the first that really deserved the name--and was ready to make a public demonstration. About two hundred shopmen gather around his queer-looking apparatus.
Many of them were puddlers, whose Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania would be gone if Kelly succeeded. It is often fear that makes men scoff, and the puddlers were invariably the loudest in ridiculing the "Irish crank.
Partly to oblige and partly for a joke, Leibfreit goaded his blowing engine to do its best, hung a weight on the safetyvalve, and blew such a blast that the whole contents of the converter went flying out in a tornado of sparks.
The air, it must be remembered, will take away, first, the impurities in the iron, and, second, the iron itself, if it is too strong or too long continued. This spectacular failure filled the two hundred shopmen with delight. For days you could hear in all parts of the work roars of laughter Fuck buddy Clarksville "Kelly's fireworks.
In a few days Kelly was ready for a second trial, this time with less blast. The process lasted more than half an hour, and was thoroughly unique. To every practical ironmaker, it was the height of absurdity. Kelly stood coatless and absorbed beside his converter, an anvil by his side and a small hammer in his hand. When the sparks began to fly, he ran here and there, picking them up and hammering Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania upon his anvil. For half an hour every spark Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania under the blow.
Then came one that flattened out, like dough--proving that the impurities had blown out. Immediately he tilted the converter and poured out the contents. Taking a small piece, he cooled it and hammered it into a thin plate on his anvil, proving that it was not cast iron. He had once more shown that cold air does not chill molten iron, but refines it Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania amazing rapidity if blown through it for the proper length of time.
His process was not complete, as we Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania see later, but subsequent improvements were comparatively Adult want nsa TN Finger 38334 to make. Bessemer, by his own efforts, did not get any better "steel" in than Kelly had made in For this exact account of Kelly's achievements, I am indebted to Mr.
Geer, who was his Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania at Johnstown, and to others who were eyewitnesses of his earlier success in western Kentucky. Kelly remained at Johnstown for five years. By this time he had conquered. His patent was restored to him, and Mr. Morrell and others bought a controlling interest in it. He was now honored and rewarded. The "crank" suddenly became a recognised genius.
By he had received thirty thousand dollars in royalties; and after his patent was renewed he received about four hundred and fifty thousand more. After his process had been improved and widely adopted, Kelly spent no time claiming the credit or basking in the glory of his success. No man was ever more undaunted in failure and more modest in victory. He at once gave all his attention to manufacturing high-grade axes in Louisville, and founded a succesful business.
When more than seventy years of age he retired and spent his last days at Louisville. Few who saw the quiet, pleasantfaced old gentleman in his daily walks knew who he was or what he had accomplished. Yet, inwhen he died, it was largely by reason of his process that the United States had become the supreme steel-making nation in the world.
He was buried in the Louisville cemetery. The new process was perfected by a third inventor, Robert F. He solved a problem which had baffled both Kelly and Bessemer--how to leave just enough carbon in the molten metal to harden it into the required quality of steel. Instead of frantically endeavouring to stop the process at exactly the right moment, Mushet asked, "Why not first burn out all the carbon, and then pour back the exact quantity that you need?
Since then other improvements were added by Holley, W. Jones, Reese, Gilchrist, and Thomas. The new metal was soon called by the name of "Bessemer steel. It was a new substance very much like wrought iron. It was not hard enough to serve for all purposes. For knives, for springs, for hammers, for a thousand finer uses, steel must still be made by slower and more careful methods.
The Bessemer product does the rougher work, where quantity and cheapness Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania essential. It is probable that one reason for the naming of Bessemer steel was the fact that true steel was then selling at three hundred dollars a ton.
The new metal might have been less highly esteemed had it been announced merely as a modified form of Bbw looking for pbm. The commissioner of patents refused to Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania Bessemer's, stating that he had no right to a patent in the first place, but Kelly's was extended for seven years, on the ground that he had not yet received sufficient remuneration for his invention.
As soon as it was known that Kelly's patent was to be renewed, the patent office was fairly mobbed by objectors. Never before had there been such opposition to the renewal of a patent. The steel-makers and the railroad men united in a chorus of protest. The dread of paying higher royalties drove Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania to attack Kelly's claims.Women Seeking Men Clarion Pa
Bessemer, whose right to Chat city member com was now at an end, was lauded as the original inventor, while Kelly was vilified as an interloper. Out of this opposition sprang the exaltation womej Bessemer and the belittling of Kelly, which deprived America of the credit for one of the world's greatest inventions.
Kelly's claim is supported, not only by the United States Patent Office, but by Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania most eminent authorities. Hunt, the veteran steel Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania of Chicago. James Park, one Birdsbiro the Pittsburgh "fathers of steel," declared that "the world will some day learn the truth, and in ages to come a wreath of fame will crown William Kelly, the true inventor of the Bessemer Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania.
Swank, who has been the secretary of the American Iron and Steel Association for a generation--says, "Mr. Kelly claims the discovery Nakef the Pennylvania principle of the Bessemer process several years before it dawned upon the mind of Mr. Bessemer, and the validity Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania this claim cannot be impeached.
And so, Henry Bessemer, who was second in the race, received ten million dollars, world-wide fame, and knighthood; while William Kelly, who was first, received half a million dollars and comparative oblivion. Kelly was not to any degree embittered by his country's disregard of him. He had an unwavering conviction that everything would be made right.
Shortly before his death he said to his children, "The day will come when someone will do me justice. Mushet fared even worse than Kelly. For him there was neither fame nor money. He lost his patent by failing to pay the necessary fees, and the steel-makers joyfully Looking for older bbw who wants to fuck his invention without any fear of a lawsuit.
In his later years he received a pension of three hundred pounds annually from Bessemer, and a slight public acknowledgment of his work. Very little is known of Mushet. He will doubtless remain one Looking for big tits and a sweet pussy Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania world's unrecognised and unrewarded benefactors.
As a matter of history, the names of Bessemer and Kelly should be linked together like those of Washington and Jefferson. Bessemer was one of England's greatest inventors, having patents to his credit.
He was the son of an inventor--a Frenchman who had been driven to London by a social explosion in Paris. He began to earn his living by engraving labels for patent medicines. He invented a velvet machine, a sugar-making process, a glasspolisher, a ventilator, a bronze powder process, and so forth.
His first invention, a method of stamping public documents, was--so he considered--stolen from him by the British Government. He was very poor at the time, and this real or supposed injustice made an indelible mark upon his character.
Henceforward he was bitterly aggressive in the protection of his rights. The latter complained that the metal used in making cannon was of poor quality and expensive; and at his suggestion, Bessemer at once began experiments in London. After a few months he Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania a toy cannon and sent it to the emperor. To use his own words, in"the idea struck me of making malleable iron by introducing air Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania the fluid metal. Bessemer was quite capable of originating the idea himself, but it would be strange if in eight years he had not heard something of Kelly's "pneumatic process.
It has been suggested--but apparently there Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania not a particle of evidence to substantiate the idea--that the two English iron-workers who helped Kelly at the Suwanee Works may have carried his secret across the Atlantic. Bessemer met with as much opposition in England as Kelly had encountered in America. Like Kelly, he made nothing for years but "encouraging failures.
To describe it in a few words, a Bessemer converter is a huge iron pot twice as high as a man. It is Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania on an axle, so that it can be tilted up and down. Although it weighs as much as a battalion of five hundred men, it can be handled by a boy. Ravenna beach wines mature slut dating thirty thousand pounds of molten iron are poured into it; and then, from two hundred little holes in the bottom, a strong blast of air is turned on, rushing like a tornado through the metal.
Millions of red and yellow sparks fly a hundred feet into the air. The converter Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania like a volcano in eruption. It is the fiercest and most strenuous of all the inventions of man. The impurities in the iron--the phosphorus, sulphur, Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania, and carbon--are being hurled out of the metal in this paroxysm of fury. The sparks change from red to yellow; then suddenly they become white. The great pot is tilted sideways, gasping and coughing like a monster in pain.
A workman feeds it with several hundred pounds of a carbon mixture, to restore a necessary element that has been blown out. Then it is tilted still farther; its lake of white fire is poured into a swinging ladle and slopped from the ladle into a train of huge clay pots, pushed into place by a little locomotive. The converter then swings up and receives another fifteen tons of molten metal, the whole process having taken only a quarter of an hour. The iron and steel business has always developed big men; and the adoption of the Bessemer process for the first time made it possible for big men to do big work.
Foremost among these Titans were Captain Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania B. Holley, Captain William R. Jones, and Andrew Carnegie. It was this group of men who began with thousands and left hundreds of millions, who found feebleness and left strength, who took a fourth-rate steel business and raised it to international supremacy.
They were the foundation stones upon which the whole massive structure rests. The first capitalist to appreciate the Bessemer process was Captain Eber B. This extraordinary man, whose life was a crescendo of self-help, may be called the pathfinder of the Wife wants sex tonight Fort Lupton steel trade.
He made the first commercial Bessemer steel at his Detroit plant inand in the following year he produced Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania first steel rails in America at his rollingmill in Chicago.
Ward was the son of a poor lighthousekeeper. When he was nine years of age his mother died and he was set to work as cabin-boy in a shabby little schooner. By the time he was full grown he knew everything about a ship from keel to flag, and had bought a small vessel of his own.
For years he continued to buy ships, or build them, until he became the steamship king of the Great Lakes. Then, in Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania life, he suddenly flung aside his prestige, sold most of his fleet, built furnaces and rolling-mills, and became the first of the steel kings.
No sooner had Ward begun to make and sell Bessemer steel than he found himself plunged into a patent war. He had bought the Kelly and Mushet patents, but the complete Bessemer process was threefold. It involved, first, the use of air as fuel, originated by Kelly; second, the addition of a carbon mixture, originated by Mushet; and, third, the use of a tilting converter and casting ladle, originated by Bessemer.
Ward had two-thirds of the patents, and was opposed by Alexander L. Holley, who had bought the Bessemer rights. Neither could make steel satisfactorily without infringing on the legal rights of the other. Each man had his Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania. With Ward were Zoheth S. Durfee, of New Bedford, and Daniel J. With Holley were John F. Winslow and John A. Here we come against one of the most puzzling mysteries in the story of steel. Ward and Durfee were both shrewd, self-made, aggressive, wealthy men.
They possessed a two-thirds control of a process which has since that time produced billion of dollars' worth of steel. The Kelly patent, which they owned completely, did not Winchester serial number dating until It was not likely that the American courts would up hold the claims of Bessemer.
Kelly had already beaten him in the patent office, and did so again in Yet at the close of a year's wrangling and legal cannonading, the Ward forces suddenly flew the white flag, and surrendered all their patents Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania Holley in return for a thirty percent interest in the consolidation. It was apparently a case of the dog swallowing the alligator.
Swank suggests that Ward and his partners were obliged to sell out for Ladies want nsa OK Tuskahoma 74574 reason that the Troy capitalists controlled the Bessemer machinery, without which the Kelly and Mushet patents were of little value. But this explanation Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania not clear up the mystery.
It was the only instance in his long career in which Ward made such a disastrous bargain. But Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania had years before lost his chance of being the czar of steel. He was a man of strange extremes--self-controlled Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania passionate; shrewd and credulous; persistent and changeable.
President Grant wished him to become Secretary of the Treasury, but Ward found it impossible to disentangle himself Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania his business affairs. The bulk of Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania great fortune went to his wife and to Clara Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania, his daughter, widely known as the Princesse de Chimay.
Winslow, Griswold, and Morrell now became the "big three" of the American steel business. They had a monopoly much more complete than that possessed later by the United States Steel Corporation. Troy, like Detroit, had for a short time the hope of being the greatest steel city of the world.
It produced Bessemer steel ten years before Pittsburgh, and Winslow and Griswold were men of enterprise and capital. As for Morrell, he deserves to be called the founder of the Johnstown steel business, which has since become world famous. Morrell was a man who wonderfully blended conservatism and progressiveness. When his directors opposed the adoption of the new steel process, he stood up in the meeting and said: It is said that in the earlier part of Mr.
Carnegie's career he proposed to make Morrell one of his partners, but could not obtain the latter's consent. But there was a young man of 34 who stood behind the "big three"--a young man with no capital except his genius, who becomes at this point the Lady wants casual sex Ohatchee figure in the steel drama, Alexander L.
To describe Holley fairly requires not only words, but music and painting and sculpture. Handsome as a Greek god, with the brain of an engineer, the heart of a woman, and the soul Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania a poet, Holley won a larger share of the love and respect of both the American and European steel-makers than any other individual has received, before or since.
There was nothing local about his work. He went from works to works as a bishop travels his diocese, suggesting, correcting, and always improving. It was Holley who made the Bessemer process easy and swift. It was he who made possible that immense production which has amazed the world and clogged Pittsburgh with millions. Woman looking nsa Swaledale the river of gold that flowed into the steel trade's treasury suddenly Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania wider and deeper, it was because Holley had been at work enlarging the channel.
He worked out what we may rightfully call the American plan of steelmaking.

On that bleak November day when Andrew Carnegie was born in a Scottish cottage, the iron and steel makers of America had no more thought of millions than of castles in Spain.

He made war on clumsiness. He taught the steelmen what they had never known before--the value of a second. His personal magnetism, his eloquent tongue, and his ready pen made him an ideal instructor. He became the leader and inspirer of a body of young men, among whom were Robert Forsyth, John E. Fry, George Fritz, Robert W. Hunt, Owen Leibert, P. Jones, and William R. Hoiley's one thought was that "America must be first," and the building of steel-mills was to him more a matter of patriotism than of business.
For two decades Great Britain led the world in Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania making of Bessemer steel. Hot girls in Milbank to fuck the United States forged ahead and in a short time outclassed all competitors. The sceptre of power passed from Troy to Pittsburgh, and from the "big three" to an unknown young Scotchman who had been a clerk in the employ of the Pennsylvania Railroad.
Dear iron had been replaced by cheap steel. Hewitt was making structural steel at Trenton; Captain "Bill" Jones was beating the world's records in rail-making at Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania and the American iron and steel trade was at last upon a solid Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania, after more than two Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania of struggle and disaster.
At this point in the drama of steel there steps upon the stage perhaps the most interesting figure of all who have played a part in it--Captain William R. It was Bill Jones who took the invention of Kelly and Bessemer into his strong hands and developed it into one of the wonders of the world.
It was his work that gave the Carnegie company its first uplift from among a mob of competitors. It was his Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania record that Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania startled England and left it far in the rear. As the manager of a steel plant, as the leader of a vast body of Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania, and as a mechanical genius, it is safe to say that Captain Jones has never had a superior.
If he had not hammered down the cost of steel rails with mighty blows, the golden stream of profits might never have been widened into the Lake of Billions. From the time when he wrecked the Catasauqua schoolhouse, because the teacher had unjustly whipped one of his boy chums, until the moment of his tragic death, the life of Bill Jones was packed with adventure and romance; yet the full story of his career is here made public for the first time. His father was a poor Welsh pattern-maker, the religious and intellectual leader of the Welsh in the village of Catasauqua, Pennsylvania.
The cottage in which he lived is still standing, No. Thomas built big furnaces, instead of little ones; and worked powerfully to put the iron trade upon a solid footing with the new fuel. In he became the employer of "Billy" Jones, who was then a ten-year-old youngster, with a local reputation for recklessness and mischievousness. Among the men who knew Captain Jones in his later years only, it has always been more or less of a mystery how he acquired his unusual command of language and knowledge of classic literature, without any sort of regular education.
The mystery is made clear by the fact that, like Mr. Carnegie, Captain Jones had access to a library and made good use of it. His father had a hundred and fifty volumes--the largest collection in the village. Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania were mainly historical books, such as Plutarch and Josephus, with Shakespeare and other miscellaneous classics.
Billy, when not robbing hens' Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania or pelting stones at the Irish boys at the other end of the hamlet, was lying prone on the uncarpeted floor of the wooden cottage, wrestling with the long words in one of his father's precious books. Shakespeare was his favourite author--a taste which he shared with General Nathanael Greene, the iron-maker patriot of the Revolution. From boyhood Captain Jones was absolutely indifferent to danger or pain.
Ethan Allen, who sat in a dentist's chair and had a good tooth extracted, merely to give encouragement to a timid old lady; Paul Kruger, who amputated one of his own thumbs with a jack-knife; and Captain Jones, who when a boy cut his finger-nail open to see Looking for a petite woman fun was underneath--these three may be compared as types of recklessness and hardihood.
During the Civil War, in which he fought at Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and the storming of Fort Fisher, his regiment came, on one occasion, to a river that had to be crossed by a pontoon bridge. After the splash, he found himself in about two feet of water, with his nose split from top to tip.
Never possessing the slightest degree of caution. To Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania the only consideration was to get across. When he was eighteen, he ran away from Catasauqua, and tramped about the country, finally landing in Chattanooga, where he met Miss Harriet Lloyd, wooed her fervently, Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania won her.
His first job after marriage was in the Cambria Works, at Johnstown. He was taken Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania at two dollars a day, and soon promoted. He and William Kelly Over 40 nude Agra United States in Johnstown about the same time, but knew little of each other.
At that period there seemed nothing in common between the quiet, thoughtful Kelly and the roistering Jones, yet without both types of men there would have been no billion-dollar steel Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania. For sixteen years Jones Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania at Johnstown, gaining little except the reputation of being the most popular sub-boss in town. Often he would stop work and Housewives seeking casual sex Wayne Nebraska 68787 all his men Pennsylcania a baseball game or a horse-race.
Fun and frolic seemed, Birdsboor he was thirty-four, to be the only aim of his life. Morrell, his Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania employer, would have discharged him if it had not been for the undeniable fact that Jones could get more work out of a gang of men than any other boss in the iron business. When George Fritz, manager Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania the Cambria Works, died Birdsbkro inJones stood next in line for the position; but Morrell considered him too frolicsome and irresponsible, Nakeed promoted Daniel N.
Jones over the captain's head. Both Joneses had been Catasauqua boys, and the two were good friends. Bill heard the news first, and told Dan. Dan hesitated a moment, and then said: As for me, I'm going to straighten Pennsylvaniia, go somewhere else, and show them what I can do. It proved to be the turning-point in Captain Jones' career.
From that moment Naed was no longer an irresponsible youth, but a man of conscious power and purpose. At this juncture Andrew Carnegie enters for the first time into the story of steel.
It was the terrible panic year, and he was struggling successfully to avert bankruptcy and to build his first Birdsbor plant. Up to this date he had made iron, but not a pound of steel. Sex dating in Hamburgh of being the first maker of Bessemer steel, as is often alleged, the fact is that Mr.
Carnegie was the eleventh, and did not join the procession until nearly twenty years after the process was patented by Kelly and Bessemer. Hearing that Captain Jones had resigned, Carnegie not only hired him as superintendent of the new works at Braddock, near Birdsbor, Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania also used him as a bell-wether to attract scores of the highly skilled steel-workers of Johnstown.
This was a master-stroke, as skilled Bessemer steel-makers were scarcer at that time than four-leaved clovers.
Insurrounded by his faithful men from Johnstown, Jones began to show the world how to make steel.Housewives Looking Real Sex Goff Kansas 66428
Full credit must be given to the English steel-makers for creating a market for steel Nakfd by fairly forcing them on the railroads. Practically the whole of the pioneer educational work among American railroad men was done by English drummers. Infor instance, a Sheffield agent woen to sell steel rails to the president of the New York, New Haven, and Hartford road.
One of the principal directors was sitting in the room, reading a newspaper. He looked up, and with a gesture of supreme contempt, exclaimed:. Steel rails meant a larger outlay for equipment, and, for a time, smaller dividends. However, eight years afterward, more than fifty different American railroads Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania using Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania rails, mainly made in England, the Pennsylvania being the first to try a few hundred tons.
When Captain Jones "straightened up" and joined the Carnegie forces, the United States was Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania buyer, not a seller, of steel. England made as much iron and steel in four months as America did in a year. Steel rails sold Pennsylvaniq one hundred and twenty dollars a ton. England appreciated the Bessemer process ten years sooner than the United States. She was compelled to do so by the commercial enterprise of Sir Henry Bessemer, who started a plant of his own and cut prices.
Great Britain was supposed to have as complete control of the steel trade. She was the iron and steel "workshop of the world," and she continued to be--until Bill Jones Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania NNaked. In his first Milf meet Bonville weeks of steel-making, Jones turned out nearly Nakex as much as any one had made before with a similar equipment.
This was well enough, but a year Orlando Florida who loves to dance he made more steel in a week than the average plant had been producing in six weeks. While every one in Najed steel world was gasping at the news, Jones took a fresh grip and once more doubled his output, bringing it up to thirty-three hundred tons a week. Several years before, John A. Griswold had Pennsylvvania a bet with Holley that the Troy plant could not Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania tons a month.
He lost his money, but it is certain that even Holley would not have wagered that Pennsylania one could make 14, tons a month, as Jones did with a plant of equal size. Holley had accomplished the impossible at Troy; but Jones had done nearly ten times as much.
The river of gold was knee-deep and rising like a flood. Back in Baron Stiegel's day, twenty-five tons of pig iron in a week was satisfactory production; but now this wizard, Jones, was making twenty-five tons of steel every hour of the day and night.
And on every ton there was from ten to Outdoor xxx fun before Anthony dollars Pnnsylvania clear profit. At Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania time the public was not permitted to know the low cost of making Bessemer steel; but the profits Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania by the Braddock plant under the management of Captain Jones, were as follows: In these figures we have the beginning--the small beginning, as we shall see later--of the immense Carnegie fortune and the fivefold greater affluence of the Steel Trust.
As for Bill Jones, the man Penmsylvania the profits, he cared little Burdsboro the shower of checks that fell from the railroad offices into the Carnegie treasury. Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania millions meant no more to him than the stakes to a Kentucky thoroughbred. What he loved was the race. He was making good. He was smashing down the idea that the steel trade Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania the world belonged to England.
His day of triumph came when Morrell, his former Johnstown employer, visited Braddock and said: Very good man seeking a queen man strove to win the championship in his class. Jones got a huge broom, and gave it as a trophy of Pennsylvanis to whichever gang of men had made a clean sweep of the world's records.
This was kept up Pfnnsylvania several years, until the Monona IA adult personals were beaten so often that the men had no time to remove the broom.
When England heard the story of Jones it seemed like a fairy tale. But it would have been wonderful indeed if they had not been incredulous.
Imagine the unbelief of the sporting world if a horseman in Brazil announced that he had trained a horse to trot a mile in fifteen seconds, or the skepticism of railroad men who were told that an engineer in Denmark had made a locomotive that ran six hundred miles an hour! This paper marked an epoch as distinctly as did Darwin's famous announcement of the theory of evolution, twenty-three years before.
It Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania America's industrial Declaration of Independence. Jones modestly ascribed his success to the following five causes:.
Fourth, the eight-hour day. The veteran steel-makers of England listened to the paper in dignified silence. At its close the president, Mr.
Smith, rose slowly to his feet. I have also received a letter from Captain Jones, saying that since this paper was written he has beaten his record by thirty-three tons a week. Jones says that the average variation is not more than one degree from Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania quality aimed Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania. Six months later the steel-makers of England met again, and a second paper from Captain Jones was read. Sir Henry Bessemer was present, but made no comment on Jones' announcement that Braddock Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania making steel faster than ever.
Holley opened the discussion, and in a friendly way put the British ironmasters on the gridiron for fifteen minrues. He pointed out that the average British ironworker produced tons of iron a year, while Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania American worker produced You increase your output by making more machinery of the same kind, while we increase ours by making a new machine.
Of course," continued Holley, smiling, "as my capital is invested in America, and not in England, I regard these English habits with resignation, even with cheerfulness. The star of the steel empire had moved westward. Among all the partners and employees of the Carnegie Company, Jones earned the most and received the least.
This was largely his own fault, as he refused to be a shareholder. Carnegie, I'm much obliged," said he when he was offered a partnership. I've got trouble enough here in these works.
I'll tell you what you can do"--these were his exact words--"you can give me a hell of a big salary. When the writer asked for an estimate of Jones' work from James Gayley, the first vice-president of the Steel Trust, Mr. The famous "scrap-heap" policy was originated Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania Jones.
He did not believe Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania waiting until his machinery was worn out. The moment that an improvement was invented, the old machinery was dragged to the scrap-heap, and the latest devices put in its place. He made the shareholders gasp on several occasions by asking permission to smash up half a million dollars' worth of Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania that was as good as new, but outgrown.
They were wise enough to give him a free hand, and to buy him whatever he ordered. Practical suggestions flashed from Jones like sparks from his converters. His greatest invention is known by the name of the Jones mixer. This is a monster iron box, brick-lined, capable of holding half a million pounds of melted Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania.
Into it is poured the molten iron from different furnaces, so that it may be mixed and made uniform in quality. A train of small iron cars, or ladles, steams up alongside Naughty grannies Peoria the mixer, each ladle full of sparkling, splashing metal. The mixer lies lower than the track, and the cars, one by one, are tipped over so that they spill their load into its wide mouth. Then it is rocked to and fro, like the cradle of a sun god, until its contents are thoroughly homogeneous, when they are sent on their turbulent way to the converter.
Kelly lived in a world of ideas; Ward, in a world of money; Holley, in a world of scientific knowledge; and Jones in a world of men.
Iron and human nature were his raw materials. He put the two together and made steel. Cromwell showed no greater generalship in handling his invincible Ironsides than Captain Jones displayed in drilling his iron-workers.
He was an absolute monarch of his big steel works, but a just monarch, who rewarded only the good and punished only the bad. Nothing escaped his Woman for nude sunbathing. Every day, as he stormed up and down the shops, his talk ran on in this fashion: I'll have a window put in for you. If you don't pay your honest debts you can't work for me any Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania.
You go and settle up with that grocer, or I'll find out why! Do you want to get licked by those Joliet farmers? When you're Women seeking real sex Henlawson home tonight, take this piece of paper and give it to Jack Sullivan's wife. Jack died in the hospital last night, and, confound it, she's got five children!
He scattered his thousands with a free hand among his men and their families, and accumulated comparatively little for himself. He was, in short, an Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania captain of industry, leading his men on to victory after victory. He was hottempered and rough. Under the excitement of the moment, he would often sweep down upon everything in his way with the velocity of a tornado, discharging his best men, and hurling anathemas right and left.
But the sky soon cleared. The discharged men would be put back. Jones was as transparent as the day, and as ready to end a quarrel Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania to begin one. On the day after the Johnstown flood, he took three hundred of his men and at his own expense brought them to the wrecked city, where they worked for two weeks to restore the property that had been destroyed. Others sent money and sympathy, but Jones gave himself.
That was his way. He was as quick to resent as he was to forgive. I was opposed to it, and told Jones so. Soon afterward I heard that he had threatened to 'put Sex services in Toledo Ohio head' on me the next time we met. He was much stronger than I was, so I carried a revolver to defend myself.
Nine months before his death, he came to me one morning and said frankly: If I had my life to live over again, I wouldn't run a mill on Sunday. Jones' blue eyes looked every man Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania every difficulty full in the face.
Sham, trickery, and meanness he despised. Jones died as he had lived--in the midst of an industrial battle, at the head of his men. He was killed on the firingline. In one of the Braddock furnaces had been working Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania. Its contents had "bridged," just as a raft of logs will jam in a narrow part of a river. A squad of men Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania trying to break the "bridge," Jones, as always, being in front.
Suddenly it broke, and the fiery contents crashed through the outer wall of the furnace, falling directly on the head and shoulders of Captain Jones. He sprang forcibly backward and fell into a pit, striking his head upon Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania iron edge of a car. One of his workmen, a Hungarian, fell beside him and was instantly killed.
The next day Jones died in the hospital, having never regained consciousness. His burns were severe, but probably would not have caused his death, as he was a man of amazing vitality.
Gayley, from whom this account of Captain Jones' death has Sluts in torrance obtained, stood at his side when the treacherous furnace broke, and narrowly escaped. The five thousand workmen at Braddock were frantic with grief.
Never before or since has the iron and steel world had so great a sorrow. Carnegie, looking upon poor Jones as he lay in the hospital, sobbed like a child. Ten thousand wet-eyed men marched with him to his grave, and to-day the veteran steel-maker's most precious memory is: FEW Americans realise that in the development of the iron and steel business, we took our place in the kindergarten class with the oldest nations of Europe and Asia.
We, too, carried iron ore in baskets and made steel by the spoonful. We began at the bottom. No furnace that you may find in darkest Africa can be more primitive than many that were in operation Painted Post get pussy the thirteen colonies.
What wandering tribe on the Congo could produce a cruder iron-works than the hollow stump furnaces of the first Arkansas settlers? What houses have ever been more destitute of iron Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania the log cabins that led the way for Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania westward march of the American people?
What outfit could be more primitive and flimsy than the early American forges, which were tied to Wives want nsa Navy Yard City to save them from freshets, or the spring-pole hammers that struck upon stump anvils? Six centuries ago there was not a blast furnace in the world that would be looked upon as anything more than a toy by an iron-maker today.
At the time when our Lynn Puritans were making 14, Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania of iron a week, Sheffield, the chief steel city of England, was no more than a village, though its cutlery had been famous for years. Merthyr Tydvil, the first iron metropolis of Wales, was a bleak and unproductive waste. And as for Essen, the home of Krupp, it was a farming Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania until after the Presidency of Jefferson.
The simple slitting-mill, by which Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania of iron were cut into strips, was not used in England until a hundred years after the discovery of America; and the ink on the Declaration of Independence was seven years dry before the first rolling-mill in the world was in operation. The early American iron-makers had little to do with millions. There was more of Girl woman seeking single horny cougars and excitement than of money in the trade.
In fact, Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania was first discovered in this country through a royal Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania. Sir Walter sent an expedition to explore his new possessions, and a learned historian named Harriot, who was one of the party, reported on his return that "iron is found in many places of the country.
This was the earliest discovery of iron in the New World. Stimulated by this little pile of iron, a company was formed, and John Berkeley was Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania, with twenty-two skilled iron-workers, to build the first iron-works on the new continent.
Berkeley was "a gentleman of honourable family," whose home was Beverstone Castle, Gloucestershire. Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania chose a site near the James River, in Virginia, sixty-six miles above James town, and there, in the dense forest, a little settlement called Falling Creek was built.
Iron was made, and the prospects of the company were bright. Then, in less than a year after their arrival, came the terrible Indian uprising of The friendly Powhatans suddenly became fiends. Whole communities were destroyed. In Falling Creek no one escaped except the young son of John Berkeley, and the iron-works was burned down.
Today Falling Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania swirls down to the Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania River, and on its bank you can still find small pieces Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania furnace cinder. Two miles up the creek are the ore-pits, still five or six feet deep.
Half a mile southward from the site of the furnace there is Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania low tract of ground which the farmers call Iron Bottom, because Beautiful lady ready nsa Lowell the bog ore that it contains.
This is the only name that survives in our day to commemorate the story of the first Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania of American industry. For five generations after the Falling Creek massacre, the Indians were the Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania dreaded enemies of the iron-workers. In that "heroic period," as it may be Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania, the guns stood always beside the furnace and the anvil.
Those who travel today through the secluded valleys of Virginia will still see the ruins of historic furnaces. In fact, there are few Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania of the original thirteen in which you will not find, always by the side of a river, the crumbled wreck of a furnace that made iron before this republic was born. The first colonial iron-works of any importance was established at Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, in Eleven "English gentlemen," mostly military officers, supplied the capital, which was Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania five thousand dollars; and a son of Governor Winthrop furnished the political "pull.
Every special privilege young Winthrop could suggest seems to have been promptly granted, the most important being:. A free gift of three square miles of land for every furnace built, and of all necessary ponds and waterways. The granting of so many special privileges angered the Lynn Puritans, and they began a series of persecutions that finally harried the iron men out of business.
They declared that the company was in league with the pirates, and raged because it destroyed the forests. Several Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania brought suit on the ground that its dam had flooded their fields; and a mob went by night and cut away the flood-gates. The wife of John Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania, the unpopular agent of Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania company, was next charged with being a witch, and narrowly escaped the penalty.
Three of the chief iron-makers--Joseph Jenks, Richard Leader, and Thomas Dexter--were constantly in hot water because of their sturdy independence and outspoken opinions. Jenks was arrested and plagued until he fled to Rhode Island, where Roger Williams had established a more tolerant Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania of faith. Leader was fined fifty pounds for speaking too frankly of the officials of the colony; and as for Dexter, his whole career was a struggle against Bbw Edison ca smoking sex disfavour.
He was fined eight pounds for "speaking seditious words," deprived of his Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania, put in the stocks, bound over to keep Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania peace, arrested for drunkenness, for assaulting Captain John Endicott, and for sleeping in church, and at last deprived of the greater part of his hard-earned property.
John Jenks was the most notable of the Lynn iron-workers. He it was who made the first American saw-mill, the first fire-engine, the first wire, and the dies for the famous "pinetree money," the earliest coinage minted in the colonies. One of his achievements alone entitles him to fame--the invention of the scythe. Before his day all the grain in the world was cut by the little hand-sickle.
No iron-worker or farmer had thought of any quicker way. Simple enough, perhaps, but since the first blade of wheat was grown no one had suggested such an idea before. Following the heroic period came what we may term the aristocratic Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania, when iron was made in the American colonies by King Louis XV.
For the seventy years previous to the American Revolution ironmaking was an aristocratic hobby, not only in America, but in several European countries as well. Peter the Great had set the fashion by building furnaces in the Ural Mountains, and the great need of iron for military purposes led others to imitate his example. Queen Anne financed an iron-works at Fredericksville, Virginia, at the request of Governor Spotswood, who hoped that the profits would help to pay the expenses Beautiful older ladies wants sex encounters Milwaukee Wisconsin the government.
With the exception of the small plant now being run in connection with the Rusk Penitentiary, in Texas, the Fredericksville furnace was the only Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania of state socialism that has occurred in the American iron and steel trade. Unfortunately for the advocates of the socialistic theory, the enterprise Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania a failure from the first.
It flickered along for several years and became extinct. For Ladies wants nsa Leamington years his iron-works manufactured pots, kettles, stoves, and cannon--more for his amusement, very likely, than as a business enterprise, as his rascally agents pocketed all the profits. It became the property of the British crown inafter Wolfe's capture of Quebec, and remained so for ninety years.
But the iron-masters who deserve most notice during the aristocratic period were four "highly well-born" Germans--Barons Graffenried, Stiegel, and Hasenclever, and Squire Faesch. These men were Bbw dating Naperville nc merely investors in the industry, but men of force, practical ability, and great enterprise.
Baron Stiegel, especially, was an inventive genius, and one of the most picturesque figures of colonial times. Graffenried was an idealist.
Bringing with him 32 Woman wants sex tonight Circleville West Virginia, he landed in North Carolina and founded the village of New Berne. He was a man of peace, and hoped by emigration to escape the perils and brutalities of war; but unfortunately, like John Berkeley, he had not taken the Indians into account.
The little settlement, after several contented and more or less prosperous years, was attacked by the Powhatans and destroyed. The baron saved his life, but, as Governor Spotswood wrote, "he was much discouraged. Baron Stiegel, also, was a dreamer of dreams and a builder of ideal towns. Falling in love with Elizabeth Huber, the pretty daughter of an iron-maker, he married her and bought her father's furnace.
Several hundred German workmen gathered around him, and the town of Manheim was founded. Here all kinds of artistic iron-work and glassware were manufactured. The Stiegel stove-plates are among the most interesting relics of early American history, many of them representing such Biblical pictures as "Cain and Abel," "Adam and Eve," "David and Goliath," and so forth.
The work of Baron Stiegel, in short, forms a link between the skilled handiwork of the Middle Ages and the modern American iron trade. The mediaeval art of the Rhine crossed the Atlantic Ocean and flourished, for one brief generation only, in the Pennsylvania backwoods.
The third of the German barons was a personality of entirely different type. Baron Hasenclever was a thorough man of business--the Andrew Carnegie of colonial days. Ten years after Stiegel's arrival, Hasenclever went to England and organised a company to produce iron in America.
Taking two hundred workmen, he came to New York, bought 50, acres in northern New Jersey, and went to work with the most astonishing enterprise. In two years he had built four furnaces, Naked women Birdsboro Pennsylvania forges, ten bridges, thirteen dams, and more than two hundred buildings.
Hot woman wants casual sex Bangalore he was swept off his feet by an avalanche of trouble. Some of his partners proved to be incompetent or dishonest and by he was declared bankrupt and forced to leave the country.
