PLANS TO RAISE MAINE
Swing Her Into Cradle of Cables,
Out of the Water.
COULD BE DONE IN 3 MONTHS
Engineer Asserts That the War
ship Could Leave Havana
Harbor Under Own Steam.
Washington, July John F. O'Rourke.
th- engineer -who bridged the Hudson at
Poughkerpsio and drove the Pennsylvania
Railroad's tunnel under the North River,
to-day laid before Mr. Oliver. ActSns Sec
retary of 'War. his plan for raising the-
Maine from the mud of Havana Harbor.
Secretary Oliver called Brigadier General
William H. Blxby. chief of engineers, into
conference, and Mr. O'Rourke told the two
officers the .■■.;•= of his plan. It we« de
cided to refer the O'Rourke plan to an
army board of engineers, which will be ap
pointed shortly and -which -will consider at
the :,,.-- time some other propositions for
the same purpose which have been made
to the War Department. Mr. O'Rourke will
nppear before the board.
Briefly, this newest plan hi based on a
system of pneumatic caissons, such as have
riiade possible the building of. extremely
<Jeep foundations under, water and which
contributed largely to the success of the
building of the tunnels under the Hudson.
No divers are used, and the pontoon system
Is put completely aside. The method pro
pHni Is 10 swing the Maine in a cradle of
powerful cables and lift her completely out
of the water, where a complete inspection
of her hall will be possible.
While the ship is suspended above water,
Mr. O"Rourke declares, she can be repaired
as readily as if she were In drydock, and
after being relaunched from the cable
cradle can leave Havana Harbor under her
own steam. This is said to be the first plan
yet proposed which would present the ship
to a naval board in precisely the same con
dition as she sunk on the night of Febru
ary Kb 3 C PS. To raise her with pontoons,
construction experts pay, would mean to
work on her hull under water, and to float
lier With compressed air would disturb
oonditions between decks.
First, a wharf of piles would be built on (
oither side, of the submerged wreck. Then j
between tin- wharves and Che hull twelve
pneumatic caissons would be sunk— six on
attoh aide. Practical tunnel building opera
tions -would be employed thereafter, and a
hundred little tunnels would be driven
through the mud under the Maine's keel
between the opposite caissons. Through
each tunnel a powerful steel cable would
be run, and each end would be run up the
outside of the caisson to the wharf above.
So there would be a steel cable under the
hull every four feet, and the aggregate of
all would be calculated to be capable of
raiding four times the weight of the wreck,
which la about seven thousand tons.
Bach cable and would then be attached to
a system of teal screw rods, and the
screwjack principle would be employed. In
that the War Department would be asked
for a thousand men to operate the hand
screws, and by every man turning a lever
fit a given signal it Js planned to pull the'
hull up in the cradle of cable in practically :
the same way as the pyramids of Egypt:
are supposed to have been built by man
power. Once swung above the waterline.
ihe gap between the wharves would be
bridged and the engineers would work
under and around the hull. When repaired
she could be let down into the water by a
reversal o£ the process* by which she wae
Mr. O'ftourke expressed the opinion to
Oen^ral Oliver that the job could be done
.in thrt-e months. Both General Oliver and
General BJxby examined the plan in

ARMY'S ERRATIC FERRYBOAT
To Examine the General Otis. Which
Ships Water and Is Hard to Steer.
[From The Tribune Bureau.]
Washington, July 25.— Major David B.
Stanley, of the Army Quartermaster's I ><•-
partment, has gone to New York to in
vestigate the alleged defect existing In the
new ferryboat General Otis, plying between
Governors Island and the Battery, and re
cently constructed, under contract with the
government, at a cost of about $100,000. The
military authorities were much surprised to
i««rn that the ferryboat was not satisfact
ory. It had been subjected to preliminary
trial on the Delaware River, near the works
of the builders, and was accepted as a re
sult of the demonstration of that test. It
proceeded to New York under its own
power, and the performance on that occa
sion sustained the views that the craft was
in all respects acceptable.
Since it has been in use in the trips be
tween New York and Governor's Island it
has been found to ship much water, while
the steering gear hi hard to operate. Ma
jor Stanley will make a thorough Inquiry
and will ascertain what remedies of the
existing; defects may be applied. The work
will be done under contract. The shipping
of water is due to the design of the boat,
which had to be short with fine lines in
order to pain admission to the narrow slips
at Governor's Island. It is believed by the
War Department officials that it will be an
easy matter to correct the defects, and the
work will be undertaken as soon as the
other ferryboat; the Hancock, is returned
to service from the period of overhauling.

KATZENBACH NOW IN FIELD
Willing to Try Again as Jersey's
WILL RESPOND, IF DRAFTED
Trenton Man's Candidacy Likely
to Eliminate Silzer and Put
Quietus on Wilson Boom.
Trenton, X. J.. July 2T, (Special).— Frank
Katzenbach, jr., of this city, who three
years ago, as the Democratic candidate
for Governor, was defeated by Governor
Fort, is aguin willing to bo the standard
bearer of hia party this fall. Mr. Katzeu
bach issued a statement to-day similar in
tone to the one issued recently by Wood
row Wilson. In it he says that if his parti
calls him ho Will accept the nomination.
Mr. Kalaenbach'e statement is as follows:
"Jf my position with respect to the Dem
ocratic nomination for Governor is not un
derstood 1 will endeavor to make it as
clear as it is possible for me to do.
"Three years ago I desired, sought and
received the nomination. While the cam
paign did not result in my election, I deep
ly appreciated the honor of the nomination
and the splendid efforts of the party in my
•'This year I have stood without resolve,
but I was not. a candidate and fHt some
one else should receive the nomination. Tn
this 1 was actuated in part by what I be
lieved to be for tho best interest of the
party, and in part because of personal
reasons I don't desire the nomination.
"My friends and the party will, I am
sure, heed and respect my wish not to be a
candidate, especially as in Messrs. Carrow,
Colo, Hughes, Kenny. Silzer, Wilson or
Wittpenn the party has both excellent and
available material from which to select n
winning nominee; in view of these circum
stances, it seems to me to be somewhat
presumptuous on my part to consider the
contingency of my nomination.
"In order, however, to leave no doubt as
to my position J will even state how in
the event of tho happening of such things
I would accept. No loyal Democrat would
fail to respond to a draft by his party. If
drafted, being- neither insensible to nor un
grateful of pa.«t honors, I would respond to
the cail. It is, howevar, my earnest wish
during the cominp campaign to work in
the ranks and to render for another the
services I have received in the past."
Well Informed Democrats were of the
opinion to-night that Mr. Katzenbach will
now be the Democratic candidate for Gov
ernor this fall. It was pointed out that ho
has the backing of James Nugent, chair
man of the Democratic State Committee,
and that so far as Hudson County was con
cerned all the delegates which Mayor
Wittpenn expects to have at his disposal
will be turned over to the Trenton man at
the proper time.
Mr. Katsenbach'a statement will, it Is
thought, have the effect of eliminating
Senator George Silzer from the contest,
and will have a bed effect on the boom of
the president of Princeton.

Miss Lillian B. Hyde, champion of the
Women's Metropolitan Golf Association,
motored to the links with a party of friends
in time to see the finish of an interesting
four-ball match between John M. Ward,
the Garden City amateur, and Herbert
Strong, of Apawarni.". on one side, against
Gil Nichols, of Wilmington, and James
Thomson, of Philadelphia, on the other.
The last named pair started their opponents
2 up, a handicap whicn proved to he about
right, as the match was all square at the
end. The great length of Nichols's drives
proved the feature of the match. Favored
by the wind Nichols overdrove the 310-yard
second green, while on one or two occasions
Gil got tee shots close to 200 yards. In
this match the brunt of the work fell upon
Nichols, as his partner was off his usual
steady game. Nichols had a 76. Ward and
Strong fitted well, though neither got
round under 80.
Jack Holmes, of Englewood. and Orrln
Terry, of Canoe Brook, firished 2 up on
Dave Hunter, of Essex County, and James
Norton, of Trenton. G«orge Sparling, of
Brooklawn, and Irving Stringer, of St. An
drews, proved a winning 1 combination
against James Maiden, of Nast-au, and
John Inglis, Of Fairview, the margin In
favor of the first named couple beinß 3 and
2. Stringer had 7»> and Maiden 77. Mitchell,
who figured in a losing four-ball match
previously mentioned, had a 77.
Because of the long dry spell the turf,
both through the fairway and on the
greens, was burned out, but the lies were
generally fairly good. Conditions call for
an eignteen-hole medal play qualifying

The match brought hi an #nd tht> twen

I that Lamed has taken outright on th*

J ceasive rounds of the tournament culmi
! nating with his sensational defeat of Reals
i C Wright in the final caused him to be re
garded as a dangerous opponent to Lamed.
j But fortune favored the veteran. A3 it had
I many times before. Th«* Califorclan's gam«»
\ depends chiefly on Mi speed. It is the
j Il£htning-llke rapidity with which he work 3
and the swift glancinsj shots of the hall
that have carried him along to such a hiall
This line of play was denied to ITcLou^h
1 lln to-day, as rain caused the courts la b«

j game to impotency. Irs edge was dulli*d.
; and despite a masterful effort on hhj part
, ha was never able to attain a showing of
iii.-' real strength. Only in the second set,
which McLoughlin won. did he come any
way near to extending learned. And then
: it was almost wholly due to tho cup hold
i er's trying a session at back court maneeu
From the opening service it was Impossi
l ble for McLoughlin to show th» arr.azir;*
! speed which had so largely contributed ta
I h's success in other matches. His service.
! usually so severe, proved Ineffective against
; Lamed, who handled the ball easily for
i returns. It allowed learned plenty of oppor
tunity to determine upon what line of
[ placement he favored, and at once hi 3
'. splendid forcing tactics were more than
j hi 3 challenger could overcome.
i Time after time >lcl>->u&rui:i was- com
' pelled to relinquish position only to offer
to his veteran opponent the opening fop
the pa.«s ha desired and had played fen-.
1 The accuracy with which Ijirr.ed timed bis
shots and his perfection of control mado
i all of the exhausting efforts on the part of
McLoughlin go for naught
Alertness, aggressiveness and wonder
fully bad hitting by McLoughlin caused th»
second set to be the real feature of the
rnatcii. Yet this burst of phenomenal
speed and cleverness on the part of tha
challenger failed to shake Lamed'< nerve.
He plainly showed this in the third set
when he outplayed McLoughlin so that tfca
young CallfomJan only scored one garr.-.
The set ended in a downpour of rain that
necessitated a delay of an hour before tba
playing of the fourth and deciding set.
Through it all the crowd ' sat under a
canopy of umbrella 3to witness learned i
ultimate triumph at the close.
Under the adverse conditions Mclaughlin
was never able to extend M 3 opponent.
Furthermore it was not a true test of hLs
skill. As it stands AlcLoughlin is ttill un
tried against the foremost player in this
country and this was a sore disappointment
to the crowd that had wished for a fairer
