Ears for steamships. This Is the lat
est device for preventing disaster at
rea. Put less metaphorically, subma
rine bell -signalling has been perfected
to such an extent that it is now com
ing into world-wide use as a safeguard
for navigation. When lighthouses and
lightships are ineffective in times of
fog the warning bell beneath the
waves is a certain monitor of danger,
and the belief is that as an attach
ment to vessels the bell would at such
times prevent collision.
The growth of submarine bell. sig
nalling is one of the most striking
things in recent maritime history. Few
developments have been achieved with
so little publicity. Quietly, yet effi
ciently, a new sense has been develop
ed for ships at sea, a sense that en
ables them : to follow a coast-line or
negotiate a narrow channel almost as
safely In fog as in fair weather. In
1901 the first submarine bell was hung
beneath the waves of the coast jof Mas
sachusetts, and for three' years its note
of -warning passed unheard except by
those who are conducting the experi
ments. In 1904 the first ocean-going
ship was fitted with submarine "ears,"
and today over 130 stations in the
northern, hemisphere are.aending out
submarine warning signals or are be
ing equipped ' for the purpose. Nine
hundred ships of the world's navies
and mercantile marine are ready to
receive or exchange such warnings.-
There is something eerie in the idea
of a monster vessel shutting, as it
were, her eyes in a tog and relying
Instead upon ears beneath the ocean.
Yet such isC really the case with the
ew Invention. Directly a fog .arises
today boats equipped witn Deu signal
ling levlces transfer their nerve cen
ters from the navigating bridge to the
keel. Telescopes '-and. glasses - give
nijwe to the - sensitive dlaohram be
neath the waves, and the closest watch
Vmf for; the warning vavebeats -or
t he submarine JJell. These, "With a lew
exceptions, are coded ana indicate oy
the frequency of :the beats -the exact
wbereahouts of the ahlp. 3o sensitive
are these instruments that distinct sig
nals cin be Tecelved by ships' of big
draught at a distance- of ten miles.
"Ships of smaller draught can hear sig
nals from three to five miles distant.1
So certain is the submarine signal in
its action, and so rapid are the strides
In Jts development, that the time prom
ises to be near, at hand when collision
between ships properly equipped will
also be impossible, unless the officers
in charge are guilty of negligence.
Nearly all the big British shipping
companies have equipped their prin
ciple vessels with the protective de
vice. Those who have refrained so
far are mainly concerned with traffic
in the southern Beas and far east.
When the board of supervisors
meets tonight it will have a nice lit
tle problem to solve. What to do
with the "monthly men", those em
ployes, employed by the city and coun
ty by the month, who have been or
dered supplanted by Democrats, is
vexing the brains of the administra
tion. Under a resolution passed at a re
cent meeting, these men are to quit
Jan. 15, day after tomorrow. Under
the opinion handed the board at a
subsequent meeting by Deputy City
and County Attorney Milverton, these
employes are under an implied con
tract, and the board runs the chance
of bringing a number of suits upon
the city if it insists upon ousting the
men Wednesday.
The first question which the board
will have to solve tonight is whether
to extend the time of the monthly em
ployes of to live up to the letter of
the former resolution. If an exten
sion of time to the end of the month
is granted the danger of suits for ad
ditional pay is averted, but another
j question comes up.
me new appropriation mu, wmcu
will be up for discussion tonight, cuts
down the salaries of many of the of
ficers in the various city departments
but the old employes were to be paid
under the old appropriation bill. The
board will find itself therefore facing
a deficit which will have to be sup
plied by special resolution.
There will have to be a special res
olution anyway, thinks the city and
county clerk, who points out that in
such departments as the city and
county attorney's, where the salaries
have been cut several hundred dol
lars a month, the difference between;
the salaries paid up to and including
January 15. and the salaries, allowed
under the new appropriation bill, will
have to be met anyhow, by a resolu
tion. "It's a beautiful mix-up any way
you take it." said one of the city au
ditor's staff, and goodness knows how '
the board is going to get out without
being worse snarled up than it is
(Continued from Page 1)
CSth and 75th companies of Coast Ar
tillery, besides a number of officers
! bound for Honolulu and Manila, are
i expected eai tomorrow morning, j
and with three troop ship3 in port at
the same time, the army will hold
the center of the stage for a few days.
The two regiments and three artillery
companies take up most of the avail
able accommodations, and a number
of officers'-wives and families have to
travel by the mail steamers to join
their husbands here.
On the arrival of the two transports
from the Coast, the troops wili be dis
embarked and sent to their respective
stations as soon as practicable. Cap
tain Ralph Lister, quartermaster
corps, the officer who as assistant to
the chief quartermaster of the de
partment looks out for the transport
service, will have his hands full,
transferring organizations and prop
erty. The Fourth Cavalry will proceed to
Schofield Barracks by train, and move
into the cantonment just vacated by
the Fifth, and that regiment, coming
to Honolulu by train, mill board the
Sheridan. The Twenty-fifth Infantry,
with ; the exception of the band, will
march to Schofield, making the trip
in two days, -while the musicians, carrying-their
heavy instruments, -will be
sent out by Tail. The 10th company
will march to Fort De Russy, and
there go into permanent camp. whi!e
the 68th and 75th will proceed to Fort
Kamehameha, one going by train, and
the other by lighter
Lieutenant John S. Pratt, district
quartermaster of the Artillery, District
of Oahu, has been designated by the
district commander to pilot the gun
ners to Kamehameha, while Lieuten
antNichols will perform a similar duty
with- the company that goes to the
present engineer post.
- Two battalions of the Twenty-fifth
will go directly into the cantonment at
Schofield which has just been vacated
by the Second Infantry, and the other
battalion will go into camp, the offi
cers', tents being pitched in northward
continuation of the present line, while
the men will camp in the rear of the
present two-battalion barracks.
One of the companies at Kameha
meha will camp adjacent to the 12
inch gun battery, while the other will
pitch its tents near the emplacements
of the mortar battery. The 10th com
pany, at Fort De Russy, will camp just
in the rear of the 6-inch battery. The
officers of the 10th company will be
given quarters at De Russy, but those
of the two ' companies at Kam will
have to tent it
All in all this is the biggest military
ifcove that Hawaii has seen since
Uncle Sam's troops first came hero.
Two regiments of cavalry, two of in
fantry , and three companies of coast
artillery figure in it, and it will be
some weeks before the; organizations
are settled down to the? regular routine
of garrison life.

Twenty-Fifth Infantry, and the three

heretofore been published, following

Superintendent Bishop of the de
partment of public works, believes the
plans for the Walkane wharf, on the
windward side of Oahu, can be
changed to permit its construction
within the appropriation of $7500 and
at the same time make the pier a
practical landing. With Efcen Low
and L. L. McCandless the superinten
dent visited the site last Saturday.
The original plans proved too ex
tensive, the board of harbor commis
sioners discovering that the contract
could not be let for less than approxi
mately 110,000. The difficulty to be
surmounted in revising the plans is
to erect a wharf extending out
throngh shallow water to a depth per
