Snu Francisco Examiner, Feb. 7, 1802.
A procession of rowboats moving
rapidly about Lake Merrill, Oakland,
a few weeks ago was observed with
intense interest by a few people who
had watched with eagerness the move
ments of one of the men in the lead
This boat was fitted with paddies,
tho rapid rotation of which urged
the boat rapidly through the ripples
and drew swiftly the seven other
boats in tow.
The boating excursion was no pleas
ure party, but a private exhibition of
a motor winch, if nblc to accomplish
one tenth of what is said of it, is the
most powerful application of electri
cal energy ever devised.
Charles Hollander is the man who
directed the movements of the leader
boat, and he is the discoverer of tho
chemical combination that produces
The process, the materials, tho
manner of combination are secrets
closely held, for no patent lias been
issued. To a very few people has
any information of the discovery or
invention been communicated, and
those people must be losing sleep con
templating the marvels which the
young inventor claims lor his motive
Sscllaiulcr is a modest mechanic,
quiet and industrious, who is em
ployed by the Soutlierp Pacific Com
pany as an extra engineer of loco
motive engines. He lives on Fourth
avenue, East Oakland, and bears an
excellent reputation among all who
know him.-. He is a member of tho
Congrogational Church and attends
stT.vice at the church in which the
Rev. George L. McNutt preaches.
His pastor isono of those deepest in
the confidence of the young invent
or. THE KXl'LOSION IN THE LABORATORY.
Sellander has said nothing for pub
lic perusal about his invention or
discovery and is believed to be now
in the East. What he has said and
shown in private is merely sulllcient
to whet curiosity.
As u boy he had " fancy for chem
istry, and spont so much of hjs time
as he could spare in a little labor
atorjr of his own construction, built
in the backyard at his father's dwelling-place.
Here, with crucibles and
retorts and acids and mixtures and
machines he made experiments and
learned by his own processes the ef
fects of combinations.
One day bo spiljpd one chemical
solution into 'another, Immediately
an explosion occurred and (ir6 ignited
his little laboratory and burned it to
What seemed a calamity was his
greatest benefaction. Interested by
the unesppptcd and disastrous result
of the chemical combination he began
a series of investigations of the mate
rials that had produced the explo
sion. During this study he found
accidentally stumbled upon, it is be
lieved his great discovery of a new
means of generating electrical power.
TJic outward appearance of his ap
paratus s simple. His chemical coin
pound ib incased n ajr-tiglit copper
vacuum bulbs, for it explodes on ex
posure to the atmosphere.
Attached to the copper receptacles
are wires through which the electri
city is fed as on supply wires of other
THE MlW&TBIt's l'HONOailAlMI.
The discovery is tho generating
materials and their imprisonment.
One of these vacuum tubs is no
longer than a walnut. Yet witli this
infinitesimally small storage, or gen
erator, ho is said to hare sent the
oiglit row-boats, in column dancing
over the surface of Lake Merritt as
though they were shells moyed by a
Sellandcr's pastor, Rev. Mr. Me
Nutt, has practical knowledge of the
value nnd success of the new motor.
Mr, Meruit is the owner of a phono
graph. To ormratq this ho used an
Edison motor weigliing sixty pounds.
Hollander applied one of his littje
contrivances, and it does all the woik
that formerly was accomplished by
tho cumbrous and heavy motor. With
one of the small batteries young
Sellander has for months furnished
power to run his mother's sowing
Tho inventor recently told a friend
thap for three weeks lie had supplied
constant pujver from his tiny genera
tor to move a toy boat in a pond in
his backyard, and tho battery showed
no signs of weakeuing, ' To the
same, friend he said that he regards
his invention, or discovery, us the
nearest approach to perpetual motion
wtin mo same generator young
Sellander can furnish electric light
ing, so he says, and declares that the
cost will bo so small that one js as
tonished at his estimates. For iu
stance, P. M. Smith has inagniliceut
and spacious grounds about his dwell
ing on the East Oakland Heights.
The inventor Uas agreed lo supply a
current direct from the butteries to
illuminate are liqhts in the grounds
or a cost of $3 per month.

Tlin HACKEU9 OK Till. lt UN'TOlt,
Tlieso stories sound like' tfniry tales
or tho invention of sonic "Caxton"
Rhodes to delude the people, but it
the young man 13 a pretender ho has
succeeded at the beginning in gulling
some very hard-headed business men
who arc not inclined lo swallow the
jdlc tales of a fabricator of romance.
First, there it V. M. Smith, com
tuftiil.v known as thu borax king of
tliis Coast, from Jiis business. Mr.
Smith is ready to back the invonlor
witli inducy. To an Examiner man
Mr. Smith would say but little, but
lie referred Willi enthusiasm to Iho
discovery or invention. He said
that lie has not been taken into Sell
andcr's confidence and therefore
knows nothing about the materials in
the little battery by which the mar
velous electrical force is ticnorated.
Yet ho is satislled that the device will
be ti great success. He says that the
light produced by the Sellander sys
tem is proportionately as superior lo
the ordinary electric lights as gas
light is superior to kerosene lamp
light. E.J. Baldwin ("Lucky" 'Baldwin
of San Francisco) is said also to hi'
willing to supply money to tho in
ventor. Another report is that the
battery was tried for lights at the
Baldwin Theatre and Hotel in San
Francisco with complelo success.
George M. Pullman of Illinois,
the great car-builder, is another who
is said to have seen the Sellander
battery, and to be convinced that it
is what it is said to be.
TUOUlll.K AllOUT l'ATENT RIGHTS.
Among the clergy.of Oakland Sel
lander lias two linn friends. One is
Rev. Mr. McNult and the other is
the Rev. Dr. J. K. McLean, pastor
of the First Congregational Church,
the largest Protectant church in the
city of churches. Mr. McNutt, who
has been parlicl uly closcto him,
declines to say an; tiling about the
discovery, fearing that circulation of
information about it might make
even more difllcull than at present
the securing of patents.
Many disheartening troubles al
ready have occurred in his attempt,
to secure Governmental protection
for his discovery or invention. To
regulate the tremendous electrical
force generated in his tiny batteries
lie has mud an apparatus which is
deemed by the Patent Olllee experts
to be an infringement of one of Edi
Twice lias this regulator prevent
ed him from getting hi patent. The
belief is that he is now in Washing
ton making a third effort.
The inventor lias a plan for con
structing a wonderful boat for duck
hunting for F. M. Smith. He intends
so to arrauge the craft that. the occu
pant may guide it by mere move
ment from side to side in his scat,
and start, slop, back and rcguhitc
speed by pressure of a foot on but
tons in the bottom of the boat.
Sellander is modestly enthusiastic
over his own work. He said recently
to a friend, "This discovery will
change t;e method of production of
power and also of electric lighting."

Mr. C. W. Reed, proprietor of the
Hotel Dellone, Omaha, one of the
finest new and modern hotels in the
west, says of Chamberlain's Cough

fainijy for years with the most satis
