CklfUKfl Mun'x Ufvlcp to Mark Vf» •cIm Sunk at Sea. A lighthouse over every sunken ship and the means of ruining it from any depth are offered ahlpowuera by Adam A. Johnson, n former T'ntted States sailor and government employee in Alaska, says the Chicago l'ost. There will be no more treasure loat at sea, nceonilng to the Inventor, If his con trivance Is adopted. It has already been favorably passed upon by ship builders, and he hopes to have it used by Japan. The invention is as simple as a steer tng gear, and In comparison with the cost of seagoing vessels Its cost Is tri fling. Insurance rates will be lower after It Is adopted, iu the opinion of a firm of stockbrokers who are Interested In the tnveution. The device is composed of two or more cylinders two and one half feet In diameter and runulng from tbe deck to the keel of the ship. In the upper end of each of these cylinders a buoy is placed. Under it and fast to It thou sands of feet of light but strong rope is colled. The buoy will flojt when the vessel sinks. It is filled with gas, which will be lighted and furnish a light orpr tbe sunken vessel for three months. When the wreckers come along with a grappling device, which is part of tbe Invention, the work of raising the ves sel will begin and will be successful, if the best authorities are not mistaken. The specially designed grappling irons will be sent down to the wreck, with the buoy lines as a guide, and at the bottom will Ilnd a grip on chains fas tened to the timbers of the vessel. With holds thus secured the work of raising will lie only a question of wind lasses and time. Mr. Johnson has pro vided against the buoy lines getting foul of the vessel's rigging. In his younger days the Inventor spent twelve years on an American inan-of-war. In 1000 he was sent to Alaska as a deputy United States mar shal. While there he had time on his hands, and the long winter evenings were spent In figuring out the Inven tion which may become a part of ev ery seagoing vessel. OY UNANIMOUS CONSENT.
