Irish School Teacher Startled the
Changes Now Being: Made in the Plun?
ger are But the Methods Pro?
posed in the Original
For many years the solutions- of the
problems o? aerial and sub-marine navi?
gation had remained unattainable und
many scientists, the greatest of their
days, have spent lifetimes in study, re?
search and ?experiment, only to find at
Uie end, that little or no progress had
been made and the realization of their
fondest hopes as far off as ever. These
questions proved veritable "wiil-o'-the^
wisps," until a few months ayo, when
one of the puzzling problems was found
to no longer ?puzzle and what was hereto?
fore regarded as unattainable was found
to he obtainable. The problem of sub?
marine navigation .wis solved.
It remained for an Irish .school-teacher
to evolve the formula. Tears he had
spent while in the "Emerald Isle, in try?
ing to l?mi some means by which a boat
could be made to rise -or sink at will, ?
r.nd recognizing its almost inestimable
value a* a means of harbor defense and
its formidable qualities as. an enemy
to an attacking or blockading fleet, he
devoted all his powers and energies to
solving the questions, lie carefully com?
puted the essentials of such a strange
craft, nnd materials that could be most
advantageously used in its construction.
He had satisfied himself that such a
?trange boat could be constructed, and
that its adoption by naval Powers
would revolutionize the methods of mod?
ini waifare. ?
The rough plans -were drawn and then
laid aweiy tin-til the minor details of
such an undertaking could be perfected.
Time, however, wrought the changes.
Ofhe.r matters demanded the attention
ot the ped;vgogue-inve:ntor, and the con?
sideration of- the details of tho sub-marino
wonder was postponed from time to
timei Finally the Irish school-teacher
came to America and went to Boston, to
visit his brother.
Here he met with an accident, which
necessitated a. long coniinemeni to his
bed. While bed-fast his mind again
turned on tho invention, the plan of
which had for so long ?remained in an
incomplete stale. He had them brought
to him and again workedx out his cal?
culations. On comparison with the old
results, they -were found identical. He
tcok new hope and determined to put
into actual test the theories that he
had evolved. This 'no did.
His ?efforts to interest those who -were
recognized as heads in the scientific
world and leaders in advanced thought,
and nie authorities in 'naval construc?
tion were but the repetition of those
of the great inventors that iiad preceded
him, o?ricsor. and his "cheese-box-on
a-shingle," ?-^yrus Field and his "crazy
cable," were ?.ailed to mind by him.
His "supposed sub-marine boat," an
impossibility, was pooh-poohed and ridi?
culed and laughed at by the g-reat sub?
marine and naval engineers. His plans
were ?picked to pieces; flaws ?found at
at every turn, and his ideas declaretl
"but the creation of a disordered mind.1'
The inventor thought of the trials that
had been, the lots of Ericson, Field and
others, and he like they, knew that
pain, patience, and that indispensible
quality, "everlastingly striking at it,"
alone "were nesessary to bring success.
He had n? fears as to tlie result.
Almost a decade aro. in 1S33, the Navy
Department of ihe United States asked
for the submission of plans for sub?
marine hoats. The "impossibiIity'T was
now tieglnning to be Recognized as the.
"possible." The Irish school-master took
advantage of tlie opportunity and
John P. Holland's plans were accepted. ?
Victory now seemetl within his rrrasio.
The eontraot was awarded the Holland
Torpedo Boat Company, of New York,
and "the work of building this "terror
of the seas" was begun. She was com?
plot?! a iihort time ago, ?and, after the
most thorough trials, proved ?herself suc?
cessful in every way.
Tne following is an extrtiet from tha
report of Captain John Lowe, United
States Navy:
"ln obedience then to th.it part of
my orders requiring me to submit a
report of m>; observations, 1 submit tho
facts hereinbefore stated, and I report
my belief that Uie Holland ?s a success?
ful and veritable Submarine Torpedo Boat,
capable of making a veritable attack
upon an enemy unseen an?l undetectable.
and that, therefore, she is an Engine of
"Warfare of terrible potency wrioh the
Government must necessarily adopt into
its service.
"Concerning the worse than woithless
ness of the present above water Torpedo
System, its methods, "theories and ap?
pliances, the need for a deliverance from
its absurdities and irom the Foo!?,' Para?
dise of Its false security, and instead
thereof the absolute need of li. real tor?
pedo syr?em such as the Submarine Sys?
tem, I have already reported under date
Xovembc-r 11. 2SSS.
"In addition, however, ? would like to
give further reasons why a Submarine*.
Service should at once re organized as
a mailer of public necessity and se?
"In the first place, we. must concede
that, notwithstanding the Hague Con?
ference, the time lias not yet arrived for
nations to disarm; on tiie contrary. that
nation which is not ready to fight, that
ceases to study war; that ceases to uso
? tho most frightful warlike appliances
' when war is made, has already placed it
I ?steif tin a position ot inferiority and
'has ceased to possess those valuable at?
tributes which are well described Ini the
term MLinhood. Such a nation is already
in tho position of China, a prey to the
weakest and the most rapieiotts, and a
disturbance to all the rest of mankind.
'?"If. then, we proposi? to light, we must
light, when we fight, with every fighting
appliance, and therefore, if there is
anything valuable in Submarine Torpedo
AA'arfare, we mULst not permit our hands
to be tied behind our bucks by any Hague
Conference or pusilan.imous humanitar
ianism forbidding su*h appliance.
"Again conceding war to be possible,
consider where the United States Is
weak and how to resist attack.
"Bet us not, octrich-like, hide our eyes
in tho sand, but if we see danger ~et
us look upon it.
"AVo ha.ve distant dependencies, tha
Philippines, ?Hawaii and the like. AVill
an enemy seek to bring us to terms by
attacking these? Perhaps so. But if so,
the move would be a weak one, exceed?
ingly weak. In fact, we could afford
to offer these as a Gambit, upon which
the enemy could waste its strength, while
we were developing counter moves.
"Let us not deceive -ourselves. Any
powerful enemy would not play at war
after that fasiiion. They would strike us
in the vitals. An eight-day dash across
the Atlantic would bring their ships to
Montauk Point, where they would en?
counter the American Fleet, which heing
destroyed by force of numbers, the re?
mainder of the enemy's ships could pass
on and anchor in Long Island Sound
in perfect s?*cnrity and very' shortly
Long ?Island would become a foreign
' possession.
"Do not consider the scheme a fanci?
ful one. it is not original to my rnind.
So many have spoken of it, that I am
satisfied it lias been considered and di?
gested in foreign councils und is part
of their programme.
'Our last Spanish War convinced mo
tha? our'own paople were at that time
awake to this fact, for we saw the Army
dliigonfly fortifying against what?Phan?
tom ships!
"in our next war it won't be Phantom
ships, fer there are at k-t'St two nations
which con do this thing single haiuled.
"AVe need right off and right now 31
Submarine Torpedo vessels in Eong Island
Sound to preserve the peace and to ?_i;-e
potency to our diplonvacy.
"The French in this matter rre much
more alive to t'r.eir needs than we ware.
What we have left to a private comnany
the French have taken up as a National

know but little, the French at the end
of this year will have spent money end

"It so ltappens, however, that the Zede
I.? only a partial success (newspaper ac?
counts to Uie contrary notwithstanding),
and the Morso stall less so, while the
?Narval arid class will be abject failures
because oi the same mistake made in
our 'Plunger, a notable mit take which tha
Holland demonstrated in advance, and
which mistake I understand is to be rec?
"All the mistakes which have befallen
the French will pass by our Govern?
ment, notwithstanding the fact that in?
stead of one and one-half million our
Government has not spent one cent, nor
has It bestowed anything more tiian scant
encouragement upon the private company
which has spent large amounts of mon?
"Besides the mistakes saved, very many
essential difficulties have been overcome
which' could not have been dreamed of
at the outset, and as a consequence
the Hollanii people ?by means ?of the
Holland are in possession of ripe experi?
ence whi?h the Government should ros?
era, and no one else.
?"?mons the facts stated in the first
part of my report, I ?have described the
Holland Torpedo station and sketched tha
daily routine. I might ob?i*ve that this
Is precisely what the Gov?inrtent would
do did it possess a station of the "kind.
It ?Is also precisely 'tihe Tentine to be
observed by a Torpedo Beat at sea, ly?
ing in wait for an enemy. That is to say,
i while motionless or In cri'I?ins trim, the
1 batteries cah he. recharged and. the air
tanks filled read?? *or the approach of an
t-nomy, ?intll the. fuel for ?th? gas enfine

"It . seems to me, ther.fore, quite a.
necessity that Oils Government should
not allow Mils skill and knowledge to ?.
pass out of ita own hands- from Native
to Foreign T?nds, but should forestall
such a catasthrophe by at once pur?
chasing the Holland and putting the Hol?
land pe-oplfs under some ban whecreby they
will be prevented'from disclosing: secret,
to the disadvantage ot the. United States.
"How keenly Foreign Governments are
alive to the Holland, I have shown ln
my facts herein reported, concerning
the presence of 'foreign officers upon
"Concerning future -improvements to
be made in the Holland and her success?
ors, I confine myself to one example to
show how much this point is a matter
of opinion and not yet of knowledge.
"I desire to add my-own opinion as to
what the future policy of "the Navy
Department should be, after,inaugurat?
ing a Submarine Service."
Th. boat which beai? the name of the
inventor has pro/ed a success, "he ^lib
marine boat Plung?*?r, which is now being
overhauled at the Trigg yards, has not
fulfilled expectations and has never lived
up to her trame. She was to be con?
structed after the same plans as tht*
Holland, but changes were made by the
Navy Department. Steam engines were
put in ar.d this proved to be th?-; cause of
all the trouble. Her motive power was
to consist of three triple expansion en?
gines, two showing ?00 indicated horso
power, and one 300 horse power. Tho
power -ras to be derived from high pres?
sure water tube boilers. Air. Holland ob?
jected to these modifications, declaring
them impracticable, and that steam could
not be" installed as a pewer. The De?
partment, however, refused to accept Mr.
Holland's plans and the Plunger is now
being reconstructed after the inventor's
original plans. His pbjections proved to
be 'well founded, for it was found, in
actual test.? that when steam had been
gotten up and ihe boat closed preparatory
to diving, the heai was so intense that
no human being would live on board, and
in no way could th?? Plunger, as she
stands now. have fulfilled any of the de
?ma.nds mad?? on her as regards to diving
and recovery.
l?fter her complete, overhauling and
renovation the Plunger will be ? proto?
type of the Holland, and the correctness
of the Irish school-master'? theories, as
to submarino navigation, once more be

A large crowd went to the Confederate
Carnival last night.
The booths are making money right
along. Undoubtedly the most attractive
one is the R. E- Lee booth, under the
efficient management of "M_es Ida W.
Ashby. By her taste and popularity, she
?has made her booth the most beautiful
and sought out one in the hall.
Messrs. Mann Sz Brown have donated a
lot of lovely La France roses, and ths
other gifts of lilies, palms, etc., are
greatly admired. The prettiest girls who
have yet made their appearance at the
Armory have been selected Ito assist Miss
Ashby, and. needless to say, this is an
attraction that tempts even those who
do not love flowers.
Following are the names of the assist?
Misses Mary Puller, Lilian Cosby, Julia
Sizer, Lena Miller, Mamie Sanders and
Goldie Paul.
Miss Agnes Northern is handling the

Mr. Belvin seems to be. ahead in the
race for the gold-headed cane. He has,
by no means won yet. however, as a

a little different.
Another interesting and attractive booth
is the Joseph E. Johnson booth. Mrs. ?.

the following charming yound ladies:
?Misses Mayme Lewis, Lottie Tomlin?

The following correspondence explains
Fayf?'tteville. Ark.. March 23d. V.m.
To the Hollywood Memorial Association,
Mrs. Joseph Bryan?. President: /
The enclosed letter to Gen. Gordon from
the president of the Southern Memorial
Association, of this pla.o?. explains an
object wejhave in view, an?! in which we
ask your iro-op? riti? n. We hetve long
thought th_.t it would be both pleasant
and profitable if all our Memorial Asso?
ciations could form into one united body,
holding annual reunions with the "Con?
federate Veterans." Much good woul?t
be accomplished, wo fe?l sure, by such
a combination; much new material col?
lected in the way of historical facts; re?
newed interest in tine care of Centf-derate
cemeteries, would, be instilled ln tho
younger members, and the work thus? per
pctuaifed. Aside from. the. honor ana
pleasure of ?meeting with the Veterans,
it would be to our material advantage
also, as w& wouid thereby secure the same?
transportation rates.
We have obtained? the names of quite
a number of Memorial Associations, who
have obtained th'^ir original names and
organization (yours among tho number),
' to whom. we. will send a copy of this Ietter
to Gen. Gordon. These "yvill do to begin
with, and others? will be notified as we
learn, their addresses. While we fully
appreciate the good work being done by
the "Daughters of the Confederacy," our
work, being solely memorial and monu?
mental, calls for, we think. Ulis federa?
tion. We hope to perfect our arrange?
ments in time to meet and orgeinize at
the Louisville reunion, if possible, where
Ve wil! be glad to meet delegates from
ail these . associations. We will depend
upon the prompt response from those
asked to join us (which, of course-, rnu.t
come before sending the letter to Uen.
Gordon), and lastly, upon hes answer,
which will be sent to each association
as soon as receiveil by us.
/ If our plan meets with your approval,
we would be glad to have the enclosed
biank tilled out and returried to us at
once, thus authorizing us to append your
names to the letter to Gen. Gordon.
Very sincerely yours,
Corresponding Secretary, S. ?. ?.,

We would esterni it a privilege and

we do not ask a voice in their counctls? .
but we would ;ike to meet with tnem.
Many of us are veterans, veterans as
much as the sray battle-scarred old sol

? stood amid tho smoke of buttle, we stood
? amid the smoke of burning homes; whei?
I they fought, we wept and prayed: wtrtn
they were hungry, we had only a crust
at home: when their clothes were wjnrtng
threadbare en the long and weary marcn.
we were busy with wheel and loom, and
needle; when they were in peril on pick?
