Jtf MAXIM SILENCER" FOR SHIPS It Is Claimed They Will Absolutely Do Away With Noise Made by the Motors. j ocean Eight ships now sailing the Pacific are equipped . with great silencers, weighing 8,000 pounds each, the Invention of Hiram Percy Mnxim, famous as the investor of the gun silencer bearing his name. If success- ful, tills newest "Maxim silencer'' may stimulate the tendency toward general substitution of the speedier, more economical, oil-burning vessels driven by the super-powerful engines of the Diesel type, for the present-day steamers. - "The motor-driven ship Is the ship of (he future," Mr. Maxim said recent ly. * there has been one great disadvant age, the terrific noise of the motors. The new silencer we expect will solve that problem." Mr. Maxim said Hint, inasmuch ns Ids patents have not been issued, lie cannot disclose Hie construction of his new invention. However, in general principle it is not unlike other Maxim silencers, depending on accomplishing Its work by absorbing the recoil and hence silencing the terrific exhaust. Mr. Maxim says it is not dissimilar in design to the smaller Maxim silencers on the market for several years for use on motor and power boats. * "However, in the past Spelling by Ear.

B. Davidson, who is act ing as temporary chairman of tbe "committee of loyal Democrats. Mr. Davidson Saturday gave out the following statement: "I have been urged to assume the chairmanship of a committee of loyal Democrats, with the view of organizing the party member ship that is opposed to the alliance of the party in any manner with the Nonpartisan league. The party's principles cannot be sacri* licet! to the personal ambition of any man and the overwhelming disaster which overtook the league ticket in this state two years ago, when it masqueraded as a Demo cratic ticket, should have been sufficient evidence of the temper of the loyal Democrats of IdgffcQ, and should have prevented any attempt to fuse the two organiza tions. "Two years ago the state house was filled with Democratic elective officers and the outlook was bright for the state remaining in the dem ocratic column. In an evil moment shrewd politicians intent only on personal aggrandizement, secretly invited the Nonpartis»o leaders to bring their membersfhfp into the democratic primaries with the result that the party was hopeless ly wrecked. "Organization headquarters will be opened at once, and all the facts as to the alliance of certain nomi nees with the Nonpartisan league are to be fully ascertained and such course taken as will for all time divorce the Democratic party of Idaho from the Nonpartisan league. If the latter organization has any principles which justify its existence it will be given an oppor tunity to present them in an honor able manner instead of muddying the waters by covert and secret attempts to control the democratic party. if if Funeral of AI Knot.
