NOVELTY IN NAVAL WARFARE
Xew Torpedo Perfected by a 5w
Dr. M. J. Alsl au. a woman rjiiypiciaa
of New York. Las Just perfected a tor
1p1o wl:ih ha W--n offtTtMl to the
L'uiteil States govt-ruim-nt for adop
tion liy tin' navy, says the New York
llcrahl. Its inventor is Captain T.
Wcjiiis Jusr. an FJimlLshinau autl a for
mer artillery ullieer who for many
years has lived in Tasmania. Dr. Als
ijan Invented a part of the automatic
deviec which controls the torpedo when
aulduerged. Slie is wealthy and i en
jjaed to be married to Captain Just.
Tor manufacturing the projectiles a
company with a capital of $l.Ouo.O"0
was Incorporated in New Jersey the
other day. The company will expend
SoO.ihx) for experiments with the tor-pt-do.
and the L nited States bureau of
naval ordnance lias been asked to con
tribute ?l '.. hi of this amount. If the
tests are satisfactory and t lye govern
ment wishes to purchase, the company
will sell its rights to the invention.
Counsel to the company, which is
known as the Just-Alsbau Torjiedo
company, is the law lirm of Hoot. How
ard. Wiruhrop A; Stimson. of which the
ssocretarv of war is a member.
Th Jnst-Alsban torpedo consists of
two parts, the ordinary submarine tor
pedo and a "false" head, both of which
an; ejected from thy same projector at
the same time. The false head leaves
the main torpedo aj the latter leaves
the muzzle of the projector, and it is
designed to carry through the air and
explode its charge of gun cotton on the
deck of a warship. The main portion.
or submarine part,, is by far the heav
ier and drops into the water before
reaching the ship and. running sub
merged, is supposed to strike anil sink
the vessel. There is thus a dual at-
tack-above atid below the water. Its
inventors say that the torpedo can bo
controlled perfectly in the water.

'"It is such a remarkable thing." said
Mr. Abjuist to a reporter," "that I fear

the Wasatch divides, a bleak and lone

Ou both sides of the mountain the
line winds down in a succession of
winding curves to lessen the grade.
Running off from the railway are
switches, which, diverging from the
grade, run up into the hills and grail
ually come to a dead level. These
switchbacks, as they are called, are so
constructed that they can be thrown
from any point on the grade. And if
a train breaks in two while ascending
the steep grade the runaway cars can
be switched on to one of these spurs,
where the breakaway finally stops aft
or it has run up the spur as far as the
momentum attained in its descent will

These are called helper engines and
are kept in roundhouses at each side

"One night I got word from Clear
Creek, a town in the western valley.
that the :):2U freight would be T.O in in
utes late on account of having to pull
out a crippled engine, 1.120. She had
burned out her Hues and had to be
hauled to Grand Junction for repairs.
"That night about 10 o'clock, after 1
had passed down the Salt Lake ex
press, I heard the freight coughing up
the long grade from Clear Creek. There
was a snowstorm raging, and the wind
howled around the station like Hie
mischief. When the overdue !):2) pull

sheds bn the wind swept summit, the
lirst tiling I asked was, "Where's the
dead engine V"
" 'Behind the doghouse: shouted the
'con.' Hut as I held my lamp above
my head I failed to see it. I was just
about to call his attention to it when,
during a lull in the storm, we plainly
heard the familiar rattle of the rails
as the runaway engine Hew at light
ning speed down the mountain. No,
1,120 had broken loose and was tear
ing down the grade to destruction.
"I jumiied and pulled the lever which
opened the spur switches. This I
knew would prevent a smashup. as the
engine would run up on the switchback
and come lo a stop. I5ut I was too
late. Almost at the same instant I
throw the lever a terrific explosion was
heard from far down 1 lit? mountain.
The runaway had exploded."
"I thought you said a moment ago.
Mr. Aliuist." interrupted The Scimi
tar man, "that the locomotive was a
Mead one?" If she had no fire under
her boiler, how could she explode?"
"That was the only thing I couldn't
understand myself." the railroad man
replied. "I could easily see how the
dead engine could break loose on that
grade, and I could understand not
hearing its descent during such a
howling blizzard, but the explosion
floored me. The only theory which in
any way solved the mystery was that
the old kettle was blown up by com
