An example of this was given, when it was seen that the vessel could be made to turn with in her own length. The shape of the new propeller is that of a T, and is said to be contrary to the hitherto ac- q cepted theory of propellers. The top edge of the T is slightly curved, and 3-5 the three arms, which constitute the c-4 complete propener, are arranged on the plan of a perfect screw, in contra distinction of what the inventors cell the "windmill" plan of the old pro pellers. All the experts on board ap peared satisfied that the inventor had succeeded in making a stride forward in marine propulsion. J. II. PORTEOUS, Inspector. 3 c a 4-5 3-4 ESTABLISHED IN 1S5S.
