Why Arswr Plate Is Costly.
Tho general public has always boon
mystified at tho extremely high prico
paid for armor plato. According to
the iron and steel number of the
Scientific American, the most impor
tant item Is tho groat length of t me
required for tho successful manufac
ture of a plato is boing constantly
worked upon, either In furnace, forgo,
maohlno shop, or annealing mid
tempering department, for a continu
ous period of nino months Other
causes of high cost uro: the largo num
ber of sopurato operations, tho fie-
quenoy with which tho great, masses
must bo transported, and tho distances
which they must bo carriod in their
journey from ono department to
another. To illus'rato tho vast 6calo
on which nn armor pinto and gun steel
works Is laid out nnd tho distances to
bo covered from shop to shop, wo may
mention that the wholo establishment
of tho Bethlehem Steel Works extends
in ono direction continuously for n
longth' of a milo mid a quarter, and
that tho forty or fifty handlings and
transshipments, which occur in mnk -J QfYTJlIlfc fTOlll

and between such buildings us the
open-hearth structure, which is 111
foot wide by 1,010 feet hi length; the
maohlno shop, llOJs feet, in width by
1,370 feet in length; tho armor forge,
850 feet in length; nnd n fuco harden
ing department and 1111 iirmor-plntu
ninchiuo shop, both of which 111 u but
littlo less in size. Further elements
of expense aro tho largo poicentago of
losses which is liable to occur, the
high llr-d cost of tho exfonslvo p ants
that must bo laid down ntid the fact
that new and improved methods of
manufao'uro niny at any tinio tender
