WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 1901. STEAMSHIP PROPOSITION. Elsewhere in this evening's Herald is copied an article from the New Orleans Picayune, report ing a movement on the part of some leading merchants of New Orleans to purchase a steamship for the trade between that port and Brownsville. The plan as outlined involves a proposition to buy an iron vessel, suitable for freight and passenger traffic, at a cost of $50, 000, provided that one-fifth of the purchase mouey be snbssribed by Brownsville merchants as stock holders. In view of the poor facilities now existing for the transportation of freight to this port, it would, seem that our merchants ought to enter readily into the New Orleans pro ject, which is fathered by some of the best known busiuess men of that city, chief among them being Messrs. Baccich & Clement, the well known ship agents firm. The proposition seems to The Herald a very fair oue, and the stock which it is required for Brownsville merchants to subs cribe should be easily taken by a few Jof our most sub stantial firms. There cun be no doubt lhat it would be a pay ing investment, as there is a steady flow of trade be tween New Orleans and Browns ville. That trade at present is nc commodated chiefly by the schoon er Beacham, which was chartered for a term of six months. This vessel has proven fairly satisfacto ry, as schooner service goes, but with tha uncertain weather condi tions on the Gulf, one can never depend certainly upon that mode of transportation, and besides, for carrying perishable goods it is frequently worse than none at all. The fall season is approaching, when the schooner traffic will be even more uucertain, aud it would be well for our merchants to en deavor to secure the steamer ser vice as soon as possible. It is, ot course, necessary that our leading houses should be interested in such a service, aud give the steamer their entire patronage, as it would hardly pay otherwise to run a steamer here. - Another terrible famine is said to be imminent in Russia.

How many per- j avenue, claims to have found thejsons survived the loss of the ve- j secret of perpetual motion. He has J sel is not known, but it is claimed; been working on this great problem for 12 years. He has not yet pat tented his discovery, therefore a precise description of the principle and its application is impossible. For 12 years, he says, he worked in the old rut of tryiug to overcome gravity, but about a year ago he turned his attention to momentum, and it is on this principle that he claims to have found success. Mr. Dean has a self winding clock that has been running for three weeks without any asistance. It winds itself every half hour. The mechanism will run in any position and it is simpler than that of an ordinary clock or watch. Mr. Dean expects that eventual ly his invention will take place of steam and electricity for the pro pulsion of vehicles ot all descrip tions. I nautomobiles, in which he believes his principle will make a decided change by permitting much lighter machinery than is now used, and in streets cars and locomotives a cylinder will take the place of the spring used in smaller pieces of mechanism. The machine will compress its own air by means of of his appliance. A wealthy partner will furnish ample means to prove the practica bility of the discovery. It will be patented soon and then they will begin work on a watch, a clock and an automobile. Mr. Deau refused to divulge the name of his partner. C. M. Hays is reported to have resigned the presidency of the SouthernPacific railroad, which will probably be consolidated with the Union Pacific nnder one manage ment.
