The Inland Printer
[The Inland Printer, Chicago.]
Some remarkable "stunts" have been "pulled off" by American newspapers within recent years. But no more daring enterprise has been recorded than that of The Christian Science Monitor of Boston, which set up a metropolitan newspaper plant in Chicago within a period of seventeen days and issued a special daily edition during the Republican national convention. The Goss Printing Press Company, which concern installed the press, and Thomas Knapp, of the Typesetting Machinery Company, Chicago, who had charge of the extraordinary work of putting in the plant on such short notice, deserve high praise for the efficiency with which the work was handled.
The office was set up on Michigan avenue, near the Coliseum—the convention hall—in a rented store space. The press—a three-deck, straight-line Goss, capable of turning out twenty-four thousand copies an hour—was built up in the front room of the store. As the press weighs twenty-five tons, it was necessary to place brick piers to serve as a foundation, which was done without cutting the heavy floor joists. At one end of the back room an iron flooring was laid, on which was established a melting-pot, a casting-box, matrix-roller, double-headed steam tables, and other devices with which a newspaper is printed. While this machinery was being put in place, a thirty-horse-power motor was installed, four linotypes set up, and racks of type for advertising display arranged on one side. The two empty rooms were so quickly transposed into a daily newspaper printing plant, with business office and editorial rooms, that even Chicagoans—who are noted for their hustling ability—were taken off their feet with surprise and admiration.
