From the biographical information you supplied with your "Army Navy Journal" post, Lt. John Taylor Haines was serving in some capacity at Springfield Armory from October 1, 1894 to October 1, 1895.

He must have been quite involved in events or testing of what was to become the U.S. model 1896 carbine. He attests to the strength of the carbine's extractor ... "In 3,000 rounds fired by me, the extractor has never failed to withdraw the empty shell".
