MONSTER VESSELS CONTEMPLATE
TO CROSS OCEAN IN FOUR DAYS.
The Ship Which is to Be Built in Foreign Parts Will Be 930
Feet Long, With a Total Horse-Power of 110,000, and a
Speed of 30 Knots an Hour.
,A ship to cross the ocean in four days,
a monster 930 feet in length, with a
total horse power of 110.000, traveling
at the rate of .'thirty knots an hour.
Think of it. Such a ship is contem?
plated by foreign builders. Regarding
the possibilities and practicability of
such un ocean greyhound the Scientific
"To drive the Deutschland, the big?
gest vessel afloat, at thirty knots would
require about ti3,000 horse power, two
und a quarter times as much as she
now possesses. If Scotch hollers and
slow revolving engines were provided
in the design of a thirty knot Deutsch?
land it would bo Impossible to put Into
her shell more than one-half of the
necessary amount of power. Evidently
to secure thirty knots a larger boat
would be required, end a larger boa!
means, increased power to drive the
weight, rnie increase In power, how?
ever, would not be directly propor?
tional to the Increase In the displace?
ment, the longer ship being ton for ton
easier to drive, because of the refine?
ment of her lines due to her greater
"Nevertheless, by the time we have
designed tt boat large enough to carry
the power corresponding to a speed of
thirty knots. We shall have upon paper
u mammoth ship.
"She will he !):I0 feel over all, s; feet
In beam, and 30 feel In draught, and
will displace about 40,000 ton:-. En?
gines of 110,000 horse power would be
required, and even If triple screws were
used, it would he ne,es:ny to develop
37.000 Horse power on e.ieh shaft?a
task that would stagger the best of the
world's enKine builders Of to.his-.
Forty-four doiiblo-ended Sco?tch boilers
would he required to supply the steam,
and during ?ach day's run of twenty
four hours 1,710 tons of coal, costing
$7,700 would- have to be fed Into the
3">3 furnaces. It would require 7.U00
tons of coal to carry the vessel to I ly
nio?tti and S.6D0 Ir.us to take her to
Humburg, the cost of the fuel alone bo
ing $36,000. The ship would have to
stow 9?"")0 tons of coal In her bunkers
for a single trip across the Atlantic.
"To anyone who has watched the re?
verse bending strains to which a ship
like the Deutschland is subjected when
she is being driven across the Atlantic
seas. It is evident that wo have come
to a point where it will tie necessary
to give Increased longitudinal strength
to any vessel that exceeds the present
length of V0O feet, in a four-day liner
this might be provided for by running
a longitudinal stiffened bulkhead, ex?
tending from live keel to the prome?
nade deck through the vessel between
the after engine room and the forward
holler room bulkheads. The vessel
might he further strengthened by car?
rying 111 ? the side plating to the prom?
enade dec!:, which I.; placed one deck
higher than In the Deutschland, and
by doubling the plating at the bile.es
and at the promenade deck. a? shown
In the midship section of the ship.
PLAN NOT POSSIBLE.
"In conclusion, it is safe to say that
B?ch a vessel an Ibis will never he
built. Wei shall cross Ih" Atlantic In
four days, hut not with a vessel of
this type. The hlgllCKt speed will be
attained, not by multiplying engine
and boiler weights, hut rather by mul?
tiplying pressures and speed, und util?
izing every refinement In the way of
economizers, superheaters and feed
water heaters, as is being done by .Mr.
Mosher in his forty-knot craft, the
Arrow, ir n thirty-knot transatlantic
steamer makes Us appearance within
the next few years, it Is safe to say
that it will be driven by the combina?
tion of water tube boilers, using hot
forced draft with fast running re?
ciprocating engines, using superheated
steam, or with turbine t ?>:" the Parsons
type. So groat will be the reduction
of wolKhis and saving of snnc?
achieved by tills cli.mge. the.'. It will
be quite within the possibilities to pro?
duce on a displacement not much
greater than that of the Deutschland
a thirty-knot ocean steamer that shall
have equal accommodation for pass?
Shrinkage of the Inland s-as of Africa, j
Father Pauli. .1 French missionary
In the hear! <>r the Dark Continent,
writes from Koroma that, since 1S79.
the surface of Lake Tanganyika has
fallen 25 feet: with the result that
along the shore of the lake there Is a
boll of cultivated ground, over half
a mile in width, between the present
water s edge and Unit of 20 years ago.
The level now seems to bo perma?
nently lixod. Father Da nil does net
think that there has been a shrink?
age of the lake, but that the present
i.'i its normal size, and that the pre?
vious higher level was owing to one
of the nutlets being clogged up. His
opinion is. however, not shared by
many travelers. Scott Elliott, who
made a careful Investigation of the
lake, found evidences tha.t at a former
period the level was much higher than
oven in IsT'j, and thinks that there has
been a great shrinkage. Bcstdesf this
latter Idea is only in keeping with the
g?neral t> ndency of African lakes.' The

long and from 12 to 20 miles broad. It
