DIVING BOAT AT CLEVELAND
Inventor Thompson Has Applied Prin

Cleveland. Aug. 1C Luther C.
Thompson has invented a submarine
boat which the United States govern
ment is examining with a view to
adapting it to the navy department.
The new invention looks like a shark,
and that is the name Mr. Thompson
ha given the vessel.
"I have studied the actions of the fish
for 25 years, and my boat is construct
ed to sink just as a fish does, by means
of diving blades." said Thompson last
night. "The present steering gear used
on the submarines is not adapted to the
kind of work that vessels of this class
are expected to do."

ily. Washington, D. C. Aug. 16. It is
rumored that President Roosevelt has
tendered the secretaryship of the treas
ury to Postmaster General George B
Cortelyou. Mr. Cortelyou is hesitating
about accepting. He knows the ins
and outs of the postal service, as he
grew up in that department. He feels
that he can administer the affairs of
that organization satisfactorily and hes

place him nearer the head of the cab

ARMY TO TRY TAGGART
Captain Must Face Court-Martial When
Through With Divorce Suit.
Washington, Aug. 16. When Capt
E. F. Taggart gets through with the di
vorce suit -which is being so hotly con
tested by his wife at Wooster. Ohio,
and which has brought out so many
ugly stories regarding the daily lives
of officers and their wives at army
posts, he may have to face a court-mar
tial on charges reflecting on his con
duct as an officer. These charges, while
not directly the outcome of the divorce
suit, are being help up until that case
is concluded, and there is a possibility,
that the revelations made at Wooster
may have much to do with the outcome
of the court-martial. It was announced
at the war department that the charges
were filed last April. Just what they
contain was not made public.
Taggart also filed charges against
Col. Miner some time ago, but they
were considered trivial and were dis

leave Springfield soon for New York

TALKS OF THE
J. S. Steele In Cavalry That Followed
Southern Commander Through
Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Steele, of South
Bend. Ind., are visiting their son, F. J.
Steele, in this city. Mr. Steele is one of
the few survivors of the cavalry raid
which resulted In the capture of Jeff
Davis at Irvinsville, Ga., in the spring
of 1865. He was a member of Com
pany M, 4th Michigan Cavalry. Mr.
Steele tells with enthusiasm of the his
toric ride across North Carolina, South
Carolina, and Georgia, which the com
mand of 6,000 cavalrymen made after
the southern commander.
For days the small company with
which he was connected followed just
behind the southern commander, and
when they entered camp at night they
would find the coals of the camp which
Davis had just deserted ahead of them.
At Irvinsville, Ga., they were told by
the negroes, who proved of valuable as
sistance throughout the march, that
the southern camp had just been bro
ken. They crossed Brown's ferry, and
then learned that the man they were
looking for had not crossed. They re
turned, and made the capture about a
mile from Irvinsville. According to
Mr. Steele, the story that the southern
general wore women's clothing is false.
He says Davis wore a waterproof coat,
but not women's clothing.
Mr. Steele expects to be in the city
for some time. He is exchanging rem
iniscences with the veterans who live
here, and has many interesting stories
to tell of the scenes of the war along
the border lines.

The collision ripped a hole several

John E. Wilder Chosen
man. Chicago. Aug. 16. The National
Reciprocity conference began a two
days" session here today. Six hundred
delegates from all parts of the coun
try assembled to discuss reciprocal
trade relations with other countries,
amendment of the Dingley tariff law,
alterations of interstate commerce
laws, and kindred matters.
A notable feature of the conference
was the attendance of foreign consuls
resident in Chicago representing near
ly every country in the world.
The conference was called to order
by A. 1. Sanders, of Chicago. John
E. Wilder, president of the Illinois
Manufacturers' association, was rluv
sen temporary chairman.
Dr. l!flrra Iteiaarka.
Ir. Wilder said among other things:
"Individualism must give way to the
association of interests. We shall
gain nothing as a result of these delib
erations ami discussions unless the de
sire of the- associations to see their
particular needs brought forward and
advocated, give way u a full, free and
unselfish discussion of the needs of
the whole couutry.
"With this element safeguarded, this
conference will become a means of
education to the entire country, and
from It must spring an inspiration to
our legislative bodies, which s4iall
make it possible: for them to frame
wise, just and sane laws governing
our reciprocal relations with other na
tions." Considerable excitement was caused
before the proceedings started by the
distribution of a pamphlet signed by
Albert Clarke, secretary of the Home
Market club, of Boston, assailing the
reciprocate movement and backing up
the attack with an alleged letter from
John M. Carson, chief of the bureau of
manufactures in the department of
commerce and labor. Carson's letter
was dated July 22, and declared: "The
department has no information regard
ing an option by the principal nations
of continental Europe of high tariff
rates." The communication further
sets, forth that the department had
"no copies of the (Jerman tariff." This
admission was taken by Clarke as a
