MODE OF TRAVEL
Inventor Holland Draws a Luxur-

WHEN WE SAIL UNDER THE WATER
No Sickness, No Minister, No .Not bins
Unpleasant As an Implement
of War at Sea.
New York. April 24. John P. Hol
land, the inventor of the submarine
torpedo boat Holland, proclaimed his
view in a lecture at the Carnegie Ly
ceum that In the course of a few years
submarine vessels would supplant sur
face craft for short journeys by water.
He also said that the submarine tor
pedo -bo.it would be so formidable an
Instrument of war that the only solu-
THE HOLLAND SUBMARINE BOAT.
tiou of the problem of avoiding lis 1p
tructive effects would lie for nations
with seaport towns never to go to war
Predicts Great Progress This Iee-a.(le.
"As soon as men overcome their
fears and learn to go down beneath
the water as they now skim its sur
face the progress of the submarine
boat in commerce will be rapid." said
Hollaud. "Within the next ten years
we shall have made more progress in
submerged navigation than has been
made in the .'!0 .years that have just
passed. Within that period I expect
to see submarine boats engaged in reg
ular passenger t rattle. For trans-Atlantic
travel submarine boats will nev
er be xssible commercially. For short
trips the submarine offers commercial
advantages that will render it a dan
gerous rival of the surface sailing ves
sels, if. indeed, it does not drive the
latter entirely out of competition in
PROSPECT OF REAL IXXtnT,
Mai de Mer la To Be Abolished and Acci
'Take, for example, the trip across
the British channel. No other water
jouruey causes an equal amount of
suffering. The most hardened traveler
becomes seasick there. Fogs and
heavy t rattle are constantly causing
collisions. Storms toss the smallest
boats about like cockleshells. The
submarine boat will remove all these
cbjectious. There will be no seasick
ness, because in a submerged boat
there is no perceptible motion. There
will be no 6mells to create nausea, for
the boats will he propelled by electric
power taken from storage batteries.
There will be no collisions, because the
boat will travel, coming and going, at
different depths say, one at forty, the
other at sixty feet.
"The water overhead may be crowd
ed with small craft, but the submarine
boat will have a free, unobstructed
course. She will be kept absolutely
true to this course by means of cables
running from shore to shore. On these
cables will run automatic steering
gear, attached to the submarine.
Storms and fogs will have no exist
ence for the traveler, for weather has
little effect upon the watt r at the depth
at which he moves.
"Tomorrow, if we had a fleet of sub
marine big enough, they could protec t
New York harbor against an attack
by the combined fleets of the world,
lint our shipping and our city would
still be at the mercy of the enemy, if
they had only one submarine, manned
by "a fearless crew of experts. You
could not mine against her, for she
would countermine. You could not
lose the harbor against her. You
could nor chase her with a fleet of your
own submarines, because you could not
find her under water."

Henry Walters, a young member of

obliged to work double shifts In an en
deavor to keep up with the flood of or

are one and two months behind on or

catching up. A scarcity of cars is
bainiicring a majority of the factories
in getting In maierials and rid of their

Cleveland. O.. April 24. The nego
tiations which have been in progress
lor the past two days between the offi
cials of the I'uited States Steel cor
poration vessel interests and the rep
resentatives of the marine engineers,
looking to a settlement of the pending
strike of the latter, were abruptly ter
minated yesterday afternoon, with the
n suit that the end of the strike is ap
parently further away than at any
time since it legau. General Manager
Wolvln. of the company, after delib
erating over the schedule submitted by
the engiueers, announced he would not
treat with the engineers as a body, but
would deal directly with the men.
1'ut tbe Screw son Harder.
Immediately upon the receipt of Hits
information the engineers prepared a
new wage scale, increasing their de
mands by altout 13 per cent, over the
figures submitted in January last.
Under this schedule the wages of chief
engineers on tirst-class boats are
placed at $ir0 per month, against $B'.2
named in the original proposition to
the lake carriers: second engineers art
advanced from JSti to $100. On second-class
boats the hief engineers
are advanced from $114 to $12.". and
from .S4 to .$:: for second engineers.
Limited in Its Application.
This scale President Fhler. of the
ngineers. announced last night, is to
apply lo all vessels on the great lakes.
e.cept those where the owners have al
ready conceded tbe demands. Fhler
also said that from :iow on the engi
neers will be permitted to make ar
rangements with managers and owners
of vessels, irrespective of their or
ganization. But the scale as above
Mated will be strictly adhered to.
VeKM-I Owners Opposed "Recognition."
Some of the local vessel owners de
clare that the decision on the part of
the engineers' association to permit
Iheir members to treat directly with
their employers will soon result in all
the men returning to work. These
vessel owners frankly admit that the
tight of the Lake Carriers' associa
tion is directed against the recognition
of the engineers' association rather
than on the question of wages.
