Yearn Ago Prevldus to November 18 1883 there bad been as many different kinds of time in the United States as there were cities towns and villages and itwas necessary for a traveler in those days to be moving his watch backward and for ward as he progressed over the country Railroads in their attempt to use some special time throughout their systems rezxhed or left a town ahead or behind the scheduled time according to the local standards The new system finally adopted was a simple one and has proved most success ful says the Baltimore News Previously each town or city based its local time upon mean sun time but the new system abolished this and dividing the country into certain districts parallel of longi tude being the boundaries adopted as standard time for all the territory with in the prescribed boundaries the mean sun time for the central degree of longi tude After this system had been worked out and approved by the United States gov ernment officials it was decided to put It Into operation on November 18 which was Sunday and on the same day the railroads of the country put into effect Inauguratlon jniuch excitement everywhere as it meant that all watehes and clocks would haveto be changed and that many peo ple were going to lose several minutes tout of their lives while many more were going to gain several minutes In Baltimore the proposed change caused much interest as local time here was six minutes and 28 seconds faster than the seventyfifth meridian time add all clocks and watches had to be set back that much Lieut Commander Thomas Perry United States navy who had figured out Baltimore time found that the Washington monument here was situated at longitude 76 degrees 36 minutes and 59 seconds west of Greenwich England where the calculation of tbe worlds longitude begins and that sun time here was live hours six minutes and 28 seconds behind Greenwich time With the corrections under the present system Baltimore time is exactly five ibours slower than Greenwich time i It was arranged for the convenience of Baltimoreans that the iftw official time should be struck off at noon by Big Sam the bell in the city hall tower and should also be sent out over the fire alarm telegraph and struck off by the bells on the engine houses throughout the city As usual the city hall clock was out of order and Big Sam refused to work so Mr A Lehman to whom had been delegated the job used a sledgehammer to make Big Sam toll the time He depended upon his watch started to work five seconds too soon Chief Charles J McAleese received accurate time by telegraph from Wash ington and sent out over the fire alarm telegraph and the bells all over the city notified the people that It was time to Jump their watches and clocks six min newttime was generally In use in homes on Sunday afternoon and went into Affect in business houses the next day Rail roads adopted it at noon For a few days the usg of the new time created some confusion a few peo Itecame Into general use and In the since Baltimoreans have entirely forgot ten the day that was six minutes an 28 seconds short of 24 hours In Wash ington however because of the attorney generals ruling that only congress could change the time it was several weeks before the new time became standard One of the great disadvantages under the old system was thedifference in time between nearby cities Philadelphia- r time for instance was five minutes fast er than Baltimore time and New York time was nearly 10 minutes faster THE PARIS CAB HORSE After Three Year Service in the City the Animal
