NAVIGATING TIIF. AIR.
There is a great deal worthy of consid
eration in the suggestions of Professor
Trowbridgo concerning the possibility of
aerial locomotion. He says:
Tl ere are two methods suggested for the
application of electricity to flying. One is a
modification of the so-called telpherage svs
ter.i which lias been irlca in England and
AV;;les for ihe purpose of transnorting small
- _ uu a kind of aerial "railway. An
electric motor runs on a Bpeeies of elevated
railway at a great speed, and, since the rail
way cati be practically aa airline, deep cut
t!n<:s, tunnelmgs and sharp curves can be
It is but a Step from this method of aerial
to omotton to that <>i a system which pro
poaes to employ airships. (Suppose, for in
stance, that a -tillable bailoon should be pro
vided with an electric motor properly fitted
with screws, vanes and rudder, and "that a
powerful electric current should be ltd to this
motor by means of trolley wires such as are
now r,s. .1 in certain double trolley electric
railroads. Bach an airship would'havo oer
tain advantages over the electric railway on
the ground. It would have the advantage of
the steamship—tree to go through a wide
stretch ol air, unhampered by conditions of
stability of roadway, or limitations of curves
nnd gradients. It is true that it would have
bead winds to oontend with. This obstacle
the -___.Bh.lp ha.- also to encounter ou water.
But it is said that this captive balloon
method would not be flying and there
fore would be humiliating. Jso one
claims that it would be flying, but it
would, if it is feasible, bo rapid move
ment, and perhaps as safe as some other
popularly accepted means of carriage. It
is not a question of sentiment, but ono of
practical usefulness. If an air-ship eon
lined by a trolley wire can bo made to
pass from ono point to another at twice or
thrice the speed now obtained by loco
motives on railway lines, and with not
much greater risk of accident, then an
enormous saving will have been made in
time and a great triumph achieved in the
problem of transportation of light articles,
Buch as mail matter, 6mall packages, etc.
But it there is to be no travel through
the air until the machine employed is cut
froe from all earth restraint, almost in
conceivable time will elapse before such
an end will be attained. It is said that
the storage battery can bo used to operate
balloon or air-ship machinery. Soit can,
if sullicient buoyancy is secured to float
tho great weight of tho battery. But that
done, it will remain uneconomic, as we
believe the storage battery will be these
many years to come. For, so far us sci
ence has yet marched in the matter of
applying the storage battery, it has de
veloped only the fact that to store electri
cal energy more power must be exerted
than that stored. There is then the loss
by friction and leakage, and the capital
invested in the battery suffers also by
reason of the inability of the battery to
earn for it for the reasons stated.
A lead storage battery at the best
■weighs 100 pounds per horse-power. To
run a one-horse-power motor six hours
tho battery must be changed for ten or
twelve hours, because its energy decliues
before the fourth hour of use ia reached.
Here, then, is a waste that in itself is
enough to discourage enterprise, except
where power to store can be utilized tiiat
costs nothing, or practically nothing.
Even then the great weight remains.
Tlie French claim the discovery of a
new battery of but half the weight of
tlie leal form. But suppose this to bo so,
with a motor weighing ISO pounds per
horso-powor and a _M__ ry GO pounds, for
six-horse-power the balloon operator
must bo forced to carry 1,200 pounds
weight of motive machinery. Ifthe nir
«._r is small and to be propelled by one
-power, still the weight will be 200
pounds- a \ cry considerable handicap for
any body floating in the air.
It would seem theu that the captive
63-torn is the only probablo one. It
is a possiblo solution of a problem that
D p__T.Mng ______ for nearly two
centuries. But it is not at all likely that
air-ships will be early, if ever, con
structed and propelled by any means,
nnd at tho same time be able to carry any
considerable freight or largo number of
passengers. While the possibilities of the
inventive ago are such that we ought to
doubt nothing promised, still there aro
.neehanicii aud scientific reasons for tho
belief that aerial movement, oxcept by
Ihe trolley system, is not to bo ono of the
achievements of the time. Even if that
system can belntrodooed it will ever bo
fraught with uncertainty and danger.
_____UX_CS UPON FREEDOM.
A Bismarck woman, reputable and
discreet, treated by hand-rubbing and
effected cures or alleviated distress
among those of her own sex. Tho Bis
marck physicians hailed the _______ ln
fore a magistrate, and she was convicted
of violating the law which docs not rec
ognize—in Dakota—that method of heal
ing and refuses to lie _use it. Now, inas
p&£o is a treatment that physicians in
SACRAMENTO DATLY !___CORD-UXlOy, SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, 1891.—EIOHT PAGES.
Caiitornia recognise and pi :etice. Of
that there is no doubt, and here hand
rubbers and bath-treaters are not dragged
before the courts as crimiuals. Where
fore there is more liberty in California
than in Dakota.
But have not citizens the right to em
ploy any method of medical treatment
they choose anywhere in this land?
That is a question of no small importance.
Are the Bismarck physicians and laws to
bo commended or disapproved regard
less ofthe right of the individual? Is
class legislation ofthe Dakotan order in
harmony with the spirit of our institu
tions? Is it compatible with the sub
structural principles underlying the
guarantees of human freedom in a land
of liberty ? Unless we read history in
correctly the religious persecutions and
tortures ofthe middle ages were justified
upon precisely the grounds occupied by
the Bismarck physicians. If there is any
real material distinction we fail to dis
If "A" may not call a hand rubber to
treat him, on precisely the same ground
he may not call a certain order of priests
to absolve him, if the law forbids. We
had supposed that the crimes against free
dom were pretty nearly all blotted out in
America in tho blaze of tho intelligence
of the nineteenth century; but with
Tennessee forbidding its people to ob
serve the seventh day unless they also
keep holy the first day; and with Dakota
declaring that one .shall not employ cer
tain simple curative agoncies without
consulting physicians of certain schools,
we may well ask ourselves if the doctrine
of the rule of the majority and tho sub
mission of the minority is not carried to
the extreme? Who shall say that in the
latter case not only is the human right
not denied, but that science itself is not
hindered and discovery checked ? Phy
sicians and healers, like priests and
creeds, should stand upon their merits,
and the people be as freo in selecting
medical advisers as in choosing con
Let healers bo held responsible for their
mistakes and blunders if tho community
chooses, but let these who employ one
class be just a free to change to anothor
class as are those who desert one oreed
and cling to another.
The Federal Courts have refused to
interfere with the judgment of the Ten
nessee court convicting a Seventh-Day
Adventist of violation of the law by
working in his field on Sunday. The
court does not pass upon the issue, but
simply says it is not a case within Fed
eral jurisdiction. So" the Tennessee
farmer who keeps tho seventh day must
serve out his time in prison for not be
lieving and acting as do those who keep
the first day. Ho did not, by his observ
ance, interfere with others; he created no
unusual noises; he did not encroach upon
the rights of any others, or disturb them
in their belief. Yet this is a land of lib
erty of conscience. Is it?
