To the Editor. ;air— jlr. .Kingston seems to think the .working classes of England had glorious times after 200 years of protection. If so why the necessity for the Act of 1802 for the preservation of the health- and morals of apprentice^', and others 'employed in cot ton and. other, mills.'' The need for the Act wilLbe'seen by quoting from 'The His tory &f the Factories': — 'In stench, in heated rooms; amid the constant whirling of a thousand' wheels, little lingers and little feet were kept in ceaseless ' action, forced! into 'unnatural .activity by blows from heavy hands and feet of .the merciless overlooker, and the infliction of bodily pain by instruments invented by the sharpened ingenuity of insatiable selfishness.

?EARLY . 'REGISTER' TRESSES. The record of 'The Register' and its ullied journals, wouki form virtually7' a history of typographic printing 'in South Australia. In the old premises in Hiudloy-street, a little to tlis west of Morphett street, there were two pres ses — the larger one a 'Stauhbpei' so called after Earl Stanhope, its inven tor, who took an immense amouut of interest in improving the printing ma chinery of his day; and the other a smaller wooden press of much Jess p6wer. The Stanhope press-'i^Cvas mainly made of iroii, and bore a strong resemblance to a modern ordinary copying press,vwith the addition of a long bed upon which the 'forme' car rying the type might.be drawn out from beneath the flat impressing sur face. The faces of the type having been inked, a sheet of paper jyas plac ed on top, and the 'tVmpan,' composed of a sheet of parchment held in a frame, was closed down by:;, means of hinges. ?

DETAILS OF THE MACHINE [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 11 March 1901
DETAILS OF THE MACHINE. The essential or primary features of the 'three^-oll straight-line press'' are the three lines of cylinders, which again may be diVided into two sets for each. line— one jset intended to carry the priniing stereotype plates having the columns oif metil type faces: and the other set. ibeing the impression .cylin ders covered with fine firm blankets, which genjr.Iy press the 'paper, 'against the inked jfaces of the .'.'type 'shapes! Every psig* of the newspaper must be printed byi pressure between' .one; pair of these I cylinders, and the, web of paper has therefore to1 run 'between two pairs so ; that it may have both sides printed. Subsidiary (o these printing imd impression cylinders are the ink ing rollers, which are carried on bear ings of a higlify, complicated character, capable of adjustment to the greatest possible nicet}-. The ink is.takpn up from the receptacle into which it has been fed. andh's passed from one roller t6 another,— these latter are ad...
"VERSATILE" MECHANISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 11 March 1901
'VERSATILE' MECHANISM. The ''three decker' machine, more over, is : wonderfully versatile as well as rapiil. It is. almost human .in its ready anantability and the convenience with whMi i't can respond to any de mand upon its intelligence. Thus it can print aqd fold four, eight ten, twelve, sixteen' or twenty-four pages of 'The Register' and 'The Evening Journal:' or eightj twelve, sixteen, twenty, thirty two, or [forty-eight pages of 'The Ob server.'* .When two page 'insets' re quire toibe inserted into an eight page sheet, in'order to make a ten page num ber of the newspaper, the machine can put a thin line of paste along the single sheet, aiiil thus' fasten it neatly in the inside before folding the paper up. Again, -vfJien the blue cover of 'The Observer?' is being put 'through the machine iit forms ti narrow strip, run ning side by side with the white paper In penfecjb-alignment; andassoonns this solouredrlioe readies the end of the ma chine itsisicut into the -proper lengths w...
EIGHTEEN MILES OF PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 11 March 1901
EIGHTEEN MILES OF TAPER. The 'three-decker' is practically three machines united in one, and hav ing special facilities for placing toge ther the various .sheets of the news paper «o. that they shall be convenient for folding and for reading. Each roll t-f paper, at the beginning of a run, measures about six miles in length, so that the machine, at Us shirt holds enough of paper to reach three-fourths of the distance between Adelaide and Gaoler. In some resects it may be likened to a locomotive engine, with tjiis main difference— that while the lo comotive runs on its track, the print ing press stands stationary, but puts its paper track through at railway speed. This statement is by no means merely ti figure of speech, :m any. one may readily ' understand by watching the rate at which copies of the newspapers can be turned out from the machine when in full motion. The 'three- decker,' in fact, will put through 400 complete newspapers in the short space t-£ one minute, and chose 400...
