Contractor of the Ericsson Would aot
Take the Chance. .
Another delay in the official trial
of the Iowa-built torpedo boat Erics
son is recorded by the New York pa
pers. The Word says: -The reason
why the speed trial oi the torpedo
boat Ericsson did not come off today
was because E. M- Dickey, president
of the Iowa Iron Works company, by
which the boat wai Dunt, did not
care to take the chance of losing at
least $10,000. When the trial takes
place there are to be 11 ships and
tugboats standing by as many mark
ing buoys along the course of 25
miles from Horton's Point to Strat
ford Light. They will be three
miles apart, and in order to make
the best speed, the pilot needs to be
able to see two buoys at once. When
a boat is going at the rate of 25 knots
an hour a very little will swerve her
from her course, and she cannot
cover the course so fast when she
goes zig-zagging across the sound.
If the Ericsson csu make 25 knots an
hour she wins $10,000 for her build
ers, and tor every quarter knot above
25 per hour, she makes $3,500.
Not only was tne weather thick,
but all the buoys had not been veri
fied. One wasknown to have drifted
half a mile out of its position. The
bad weather prevented Supt. R. F
Bradford, on board the lighthouse
steamer Cactus, at New Haven, from
verifying the bearings of the three
"The naval board has made the
official examination of the Ericsson.
When she has had her speed trial,
she will go r'ght off to Brooklyn,
where she will be put in the dry
dock and the outside of her hull
