cause that is the best pair of crys

OOB.EAN ROYAL BAND.
Quoor Littlo Troupo of Musicians
Who Havo Boon to tho World's
In fnr-awny Coron tho King is
mourning in his pnlnco for tho re
turn of his musicians, who hnvo boon
beguiling tho toilium of tho hours at
Chicago with thoir woird, barbaric
strains. Tho royal band, knowing
this, aro now on thoir wav homo.
having arrived lioro lato Inst night
from tho East. Thoy woro huddled
together in two rooms at tho Gold
en Eaglo Hotel yosterday nnd each
ono of tho ton was smoking himself
black in tho face. During a month's
stny in Amorica they hnvo bocouio
slaves to tho cigarotto habit, and
thoro was not a man of thorn who
did not carry a package concealed
soinowhoro about tho ample folds of
his flowing garments.
"Look out for an influx of Coreans
to this country," said Am Ki Sun,
tho intorprotor. ''Before very few
of our people hnvo over visited
America, and wo know very little
about it. Those niou are very quick
and bright, and thoy look at every
thing whilo thoy travel. You will
sco when thoy no back to thoir
lioines thoy toll all thoir relations
and friends what wonderful thinixs
thoy soo in this country, and a groat
many who have tho 11101103 will bo
coining over hero to try thoir for
tuuos. Every 0110 of tho members of the
royal band is married. This is
shown by tho fact that thoy wear
thoir hair dono up in a knot on tho
tops of thoir heads, in contradis
tinction to the long quouo worn by
tho men who have novor married.
'Our customs that way aro very
peculiar," explained tho intorprotor.
"At homo our pooplo aro not allowed
to mention tho name of any person
who is ton years older. When a man
or a woman older than us lift 0011
years wo havo to honor them just as
wo do our parents. Because of those
customs, our niou and women nearly
all marry young, and thoro is 110
such thing as divorce. No matter
how rich a man is or how much in
fluence, ho cannot hnvo a young wife
if ho is older in j-oars. Unless ho
want to many a woman tho same
aro as himself ho must live his life
as a single man or a widower, just as
it happens to him."
Among other things which tho
Coreans havo learned in tho East is
to drink whisky, and thoy "shoot
crabs" with as much science as a
Mississippi roustabout. Thoy aro
great gamblers in thoir way, and tho
now game has proved so fascinating
that already one-half of tho crowd
havo tho spare chango of tho othors
stowed away in thoir pockets as
testimonials of thoir skill.
It is not only in the way of per
formers on musical instruments that
thoy excel, but thoy sing their native
songs in tones that resemble a cross
botweon noises made by a threshing
machine and a crosscut saw. Thoir
chief duty is to sing tho King to
sleep every night, and thoy seem to
be impressed with the idea that his
majesty is suffering with a bad caso
ot insomnia 111 thoir absonce.
Tho Coreans leave for home Satur
day by tho Peru and will reach homo
a month later.
To Fight TJndor Water.
If Inventor John Holland of Ne
wark, N. J., had done all that ho
said ho could do ho would havo
dropped a little submarine boat off
Liborty island during tho Colum
bian naval parade and would havo
destroyed all the mighty ironclads
that floated in tho bay.
Tho uamo of Holland and tho alle
gations associated therewith aro
suggestive of tho early inhabitants
of Now Amsterdam and tho diro
threats thoy made against certain
invading fleets, but the Newark en
gineer's invention i-, considered prac
tical, and thoro is a possibility' that
it will bo adopted by- tho Govern
ment. Congress has appropriated $200,
000 for the experimental building of
a vessel to travel and light under
water, and of several designs from
which tho Navy Department is to
make a selection this month that of
Mr. Holland is regarded as tho fore
most. Tho proposed craft is 135 foot
long and 9 foot in depth, construct
ed of steel with invulnerable armor.
It is described by tho Now York
Press as resembling a thread bobbin
in shape more nearly than anything
else. Mr. Holland declares that
when tho boat is floating on the wa
ter only four seconds will bo re
quired to shutdown the smokestack,
lot out tho gasos that aro in tho
compartments, hermetically seal tho
opening and sink to a depth of fifty
Two triple compound engines will
give tho motive power, and tho craft
is to bo haudlod by a crow of eight
In making its descent the vessel
will havo a motion like that of a por
poise. Tho steering gear consists of
two horizontal ruddors, and any di
rection through tho water may bo
readily obtained. Tho facility of
rising makes it feasible to take fioar
ings when in pursuit of an enemy
by olovating tho man on tho lookout
just enough so that ho may seo above
the surface. Tho speed anticipated
is thirteen knots an hour on tho sur
face and eight knots when complete
At oithor end of tho boat is to bo
an expulsion gnu which will shoot
Whitehead torpedoes weighing not
loss than J00 pounds, and a binglo
disehargo ought to destroy tho most
powerful cruiser afloat. Sulllciont
fuel can bo carried to enable the
boat to remain at sea for a week
with n continual speed during that
lime of eight knots an hour.
The proximity of a submarine
boat of that kind to another vessel
could bo detected only by means of
an electrical apparatus which would
be nfleolod by tho metal, and oven
thou tho direction would not be
Prance has a submarine boat, the
Gym Note, iuvonted by .M. Goubet,
and Spain has tho Pond, which was
constructed on designs by Uoiiton
ant Hougard, a Gorman. Those aro
tho ouly two that uro now connected
with tho nnvios of tho world, but ex
periments in submarine navigation
have boon enrriod on with varied
succoss from tho timo of David
Bushnoll's Dolnwaro rivor operations
in 1777, which woro approved by
Thomas Jefferson and declared by
Washington to bo impracticable
In 1870 Mr. Holland constructed
n submarino vessel at his own ox
ponso and gavo an exhibition nt Now
York. When tho boat loft hor stays
sho sank almost instantly and tho
spectators bblioved that ovory inau
within hor had porishod, but aftor
an hour or two sho omorgod, safo
sound, on tho othor side of the river.
At present Mr. Holland has modols
of two othor boats. One is made to
sink ontiroly uudornoath tho surface
of tho water, whilo tho othor will go
no deeper thnu will allow a hoavfly
armed turret to appear abovo tho
surfneo. This is made so strong that
it is absolutely impossible to demolish
it by any modorn gun while tho
lower part of tho boat, being under
water, is of courso invulnorablo. Tho
boat so constructed will bo nblo to
approach near tho cruisor with
safety to itsolf, and could sond n
torpedo jiudornoath its antagonist
which ovon tho netting could not
prevent from doing its torriblo work.
The Navy Dopartmont, howovor, litis
uociueu upon the uso of a boat
which can bo ontiroly submerged.
The ollicors of the Na'3' Dopart
mont speak confidontl' of securing
a submarino vessol that will bo ablo
to do great work in naval warfare,
though tho plans already submitted
may not bo satisfactory. Tho prin
cipal uso of such vessels would bo in
tho coast defense Tho fact that
tho vessol at sea cannot toll tho pro
souco of the torpedo boat makos it
all-powerful in keeping cruisers
awav from tho coast. It is not in
tended that tho submarino boat
shall go to sea to remain, and it is
not constructed for that purpose.
It will bo sort of a guerrilla of naval
warfare, which will continuo to
haunt tho coast lino watching for
any intruder. In timo of battlo,
when it is overrun or hard pressed,
it can sink beneath the water if
necessary', as deep as 150 foot, and
compjotely oscapo its pursuer. A
combination of torpedo boats alouo
can disable it by surrounding it so
that it cannot sink.
