KICTOIOXD DAJXY PADDIUM, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19,1901.
There is a good and a definite reason why we sold 10,000,000 packages of the truly named MERRELL SOULE SAFETY OH THE OCEAN Value of Wireless Telegraphy on Transatlantic Liners. TAB BETTER THAN FLAG SIGNALS How 6 fa I pa Will Be Kent la Toir!i With Earn Other and With the Shore Details of the Agreement Hetweea Lloyds aad the Marconi Cotupaay. Tlie details of tbe agreement between the Marconi International Mariii Communication company and Lloyds are given in tbe current number of tfte London Electrician. By the terms of this agreement the Marconi system of wireless telegraphy is placed urxu a secure and enduring footing for mer cantile marine signaling and intercom munication between ship and coast signal stations. As is well known, up to the advent of the Marconi system communications between passing ships at sea and betweeu vessels and tbe Uoyds signal stations have been by Sag signals. Against this system, which has been In use for centuries, many objections have been made. Dis tance was always a drawback, as tbe ra&ge of vision even on a clear day Is limited, and in foggy or stormy weather or In the night no signaling except the "pilot dare" and the signal of distress Is In vogue. Further than this. It has often been necessary for a vessel to go out of her course to sig nal coast stations, thus losing valuable time and often runuing into danger In the effort to get near enough to the sta tion to give ami answer- mi Besides this, the system of Bags is j cumlersome. and only a few phrases i can be sent back and forth. I Now that the Marconi system ha ben proved a success it seems strange that there has not been more haste in taking it up on all merchant vessels. Of course the question of monopoly will arise, for. according to the agree ment. Lloyds will employ no other system of wireless telegraphy than that of the Marconi company for the nest fourteen years, but as the Morse system and the telephone were monon ..ii,.o it chrmhl lx no drawback. They will receive commercial messages at their signal stations from any vessel supplied with the Marconi apparatus and will also send message to any such vessel, but they will receive or transmit no wireless telegraph com munication whatever where a vessel is equipped with apparatus not supplied by the Marconi company. By this agreement tite monopoly Is established, for tt will be necessary for vessels de siring to communicate with shore in that way to get that particular appara tus. It would le interesting to know what would be done In the case or sig nnls of distress, but 'It is more than likelv that Thi- fWt rtPssionm m.M1M,MMMMM1M,,m,M,,,asss,nM,,, I S . There's .

N.Y. system win uut ianu in tne nay ol humauity and that the stations will promptly rejiort any vessel which may be in difficulties whether or not she has the Marconi apparatus on board. Tle agreement further provides that whenever a center for commercial wireless telegraphy with shi)s would be advisable tbe existing Lloyds sta tions at these jwiiits shall be worked on the Marconi system, or If no station exists within about twenty miles u new Lloyds station will be built and of course le placed In ordinary telegraph ic communication with the British postoftiee lines. Arrangements have been made by which Atlantic liners fit ted with Marconi apparatus will be supplied with all tbe latest Important news as soon as they come within about a hundred miles of the coast of America or the British islands. The rental 6ystem which lias been In force with the Marconi company will not be used under the agreement, but a tariff system will take its place. Sig nal stations will be allowed free use of the apparatus for the ordinary re ceipt of Lloyds signals, and vessels signaling to one another are permitted a certain number of service messages, but for all commercial messages a charge of sixpence par word In addi-j tlon to all land charges will be made. ' There can be little doubt that business meu on steamers, finding that they can communicate with land a hundred miles out at sea. will be prone to use the system and that tbe dissemination of Important news on the vessel is likely to promote private messages. With this system in vogue, it seems as if there should be a decided im provement in the security of ocean voy ages. Vessels equipped with the wire less, Instruments may almost always be in touch with other ships on transat- , once be flashed through the air, com munication being possible for at least n hundred miles. Under these circum stance any steamship that floats around disabled and lost to the world would do so simply because the owners of the vessel have neglected to equip her with the wireless system and thus failed to take one of the most ordinary precautions against trouble and worry. Overdue vessels will be able to tell where they are and what has delayed them, so that anxiety may be allayed. and a call for help at sea from a hun-1 dred miles away should rarely or never fail to be answered. Those who go down to sea in ships in tbe future are more than likely to ask questions in re- . gard to the Marconi equipment, and it Is bv no means impossible that the sys- tern" will be as Important and necessary a part of an Atlantic liner as the pro eller.

Officers of the company state that J while all its employees will be required , to take lessons It Is those who are em ployed In Its lon? distance service that most need this training and for whom they are more solicitous. They realize they are doing a great deal of business that the telegraph companies once did and that this business can be increased greatly if all obstacles to quick and easy communication are removed. Many of the more advauced farmers of the state are receiving their market quotations over the lines every day, and this Is bringing the long distance wires into a use where absolute accu racy is required, and accuracy in this case means clear ennunclation. TO DREDGE THE PACIFIC. Expedition fader Aanplees of Inland Stanford I'talverslty. A United States ship a steamer, not a gunboat is to be sent Into the Pacif ic off the coast of Hawaii. This infor mation was received at Iowa City, la., the other day by President George E. MacLean of the University of Iowa from President David Starr Jordan of the Leland Stanford university, says the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. The lat ter scientist will be amoug those In charge of the expedition, which will sail from San Francisco Dec. 1 on board the Albatross bound on a deep water dredging tour of five months duration. President Jordan Invited Professor C. C. Nutting of the chair of zoology. University of Iowa, to assume charge of the department devoted to bydroids and animal life. The Iowa regents granted their savant a leave of ab sence In order that he may join the expedition. President Jordan in his letter to Dr. MacLean says. "The Alba- tross party will have unequaled oppor- CTuaiuiTB in n region owoiuieiy un touched, as but one series of dredgings has been made in that part of the Pa cific we purpose studying." THE CINCINNATI REBUILT. Tbe First All Steel Warship to Have a KiBrarehead. The cruiser Cincinnati is the first all steel ship of the service to have a fig urehead, and when she Is placed in commission at the New York navy yard on Dec. 1 she will display a life size heroic figure of Liberty in steel and wood standing straight out from her well curved stem, says a Washing ton dispatch to the New Tort Sua. This figure was designed and con structed at tbe New York yard under direction of Rear Admiral Francis T. Bowles, then In charge of the con struction workshops, and Is declared to be a perfect specimen of the figurehead for a warship. Such decorations disappeared with the gradual abandonment of wood for steel vessels, and even with many of the old wooden craft there were few of those immense figureheads which years ago were the distinguishing feature of all American naval vessels. The last of this nuruber to display figureheads were the vessels of tbe line of battle ship class that found their way to the burial ground of the navy soon after the civil war. The Cincinnati is said to be the only ail steel vessel in the world of any naval power whose stem is adorned with a figurehead. A pdta'i 01 a ti It inrr P.t? n- r-al . J.hn X.

A copy of the ode was mailed to tbe royal palace, and the poet waited anxiously for a reply. His poem was returned a few days ago. With it there was a letter of thanks from the kine's secretary, and, while the king expressed his jrratifica tion at the noble sentiments expressed in the lines, he said it would be Im possible to have the poem read. Sam-uels-Belboder said, however, that the ode would be printed in a London newspaper la June. Artillery JSa Ina pedinteaf to Boers.
