Three Candidates*For Reeve,

Ratepayers from all parts of the
municipality of Burnaby gathered at
the old municipal hall, Edmonds, last
evening to hear the three candidates
for the reeveship, the present reeve,
Mr. W. J. Weart, and Councillors
John Rumble and T. D. Coldicott.
Long before ?: no o'clock the hail was
packed, and standing room was at a
ficmi.im. Rumor had it during
the afternoon that the opponents ol
Reeve Weart were going to explode a
bomb at the meeting, but whether lt
was only a whim of Dame Rumor, or
the fact that they found themselves
hopelessly outclassed, suffice it to
say the gathering was of an orderly
nature, tbe proceedings only being
interrupted twice, and disturbers
quickly subsiding to save themselves
from ejectment. Mr. B. G. Walker
was voted to the chair, and at 7:30
o'clock the oratorical contest was on,
each speaker being alloted one hour.
Councillor John Rumble, who was
this first speaker, gave a brief outline
of his work on the council during the
past nine years. He then dwelt on
the subject ot good roads, and the
letting sf contracts.   The speaker ad-

it tben came to light that on' the
morning of the robbery '.Ittle Georgo
Lavery had picked up about $5000
under the Carnarvon street bridge,
and given them to the Austrian. Since
that date not a word has been heard
of the money or the wanted men by
tbe public. But all the time tbe city
police and the great detective agenc/
were working hand in hand following
up everything that looked like a clue,
tracing every ruspected character, until at last the threads began to lead
steadily ln one direction and suspicion attached Itself more and more
flrmly to certain men. John Macnamara and Charles Dean, constantly
traveling, were spending money
recklessly on diamonds and wines
and furs, living in the best hotels,
and apparently taking! no thought for
anything but to keop nn the move.

How the functions of the King are
being exercised in the United Kingdom during His Majesty's absence in
India is as follows:
Provisions hsve been made by Order
in Council for delegating the exercise
of certard ot the. executive functions
of the crown during the King's absence. The language of the order is
necessarily wide, but as His Majesty
during his sbsenee is in dsily telegraphic communication with his Ministers, all matters of gravity m9 im-
po tance ail in ordinary eourse submitted to him.
The persons named in tbe Commission are:
H.R.H. Prince \rthur of Connaught.
Tne Archbishop of Canterbury.
The Lofrd Chaneellor.
Tbe Lord President ol the Council
(Lord Morley of Blackburn).
No legislation is needed tor the purpose.
The practice of appointing a Regent
during the absence of a Sovereign
abroad has been in abeyance since
the reign of Henry HI. The appointment of a Regent would involve the
passing ot a special aci of Parliament,
as a Regency Act applies only to the
death of the Sovereign when the heir
to the throne is under age.
That the precedent of 1821 is followed, that when His Majesty in
Council declares his intention of going out of the kingdom he will nominate as his Commissioner for the exer-
cise of certain executive functions
the persons named by the Prime Minister.
The appointments specify the powers to be exercispd. and are mad."
under the Great Seal, so that the assent of Parliament is not necessary.
The power delegated to the Commissioners are not so wide as in former
dayi, when facilities of communication were more limited. But they
cover a multitude of duties, such as
issuing of warrants and letters patent, tne making of appointments, and
the granting ot licenses and dispensations that require the King's authority.
With his father, the Duke of Con-
naugnt. now in Canada, Prince Arthur
waa the only ^dult male member of
the royal family left in England when
the  King  sailed for India.    He  will
ceebrate his twenty-ninth birthday on
Jan. 13 next, before the King's return.
Prince Arthur is a favorite with the
public.   Crowds know well hi3 open,
handsome   face,   with   its  cl��ar   blue
eyes, and his tall, straight figure���he
la the tallest member of the royal family���and they keep a special cheer for
him.    He  has  always  been   popular
at  Eton,   st  Sandhurst,  in the  regiments to which he has been attached,
and during his many royal missions
abroad.   He is a sportsman, interested
fn all athletics, s timi "shot," and an
excellent  horseman.    He  has  proved
hi's  worth   as  a  hunter of  big game
during visits to Canada,  East Africa
and Russia.  In Canada he won golden
opinions;    thj   people  there   quickly
lound that he had "no side."
To be a watch and clock maker was
his ambition when a child, but any
dejire  in this direction was checked
jby his father, who made the boy go
I round  with   a  man   who  wound   the
(household   clocks   at   Bagshot   Park.
Prince Arthur icurid that the occupation lacked exeite?n*nt, and his ambition  turned elsewhere.    After Eton
he passed through Sandhurst, and was
gar.etted  to  a  second  lieutenancy  in
the 7th   (Quaen's Own)   Hussars   in
May, 1901, during the Bouth African
VHien the regiment was ordered to
the front Prince Arthur, as the youngest subaltern, was left, to his intense
regret, at the cavalry depot. In 1903,
wh-t�� a full lieutenant, he went out
to join his regiment in South Africa
in charge of a draft of recruits. His
serviee in the Transvaal was cut short
by a severe attack of dysentery, which
neeemitst'S-his being invalided home.
To make hftnselt a thorough efficient
officer he has undergone instruction
coerses at the signalling and musketry
schools. He has served with the Royal
Horse Artillery and the Scots Gr��ys.
As representative of the Sovereign,
Prince Arthur has played many parts.
During the illness of King Edward in
190! he was deputed to show honor
to the Shah, who stated tl.at the kindness, tact, and courtesy of the prince
would be one of his happiest recollections of Europe. Prince Arthur's (fr?t

DuChess of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and
at the opening of the new Protestant
cathedral in BeTlin; On that occasion
tho rrince was infested by the Kai��-
or with the Order of the Black Kaglc.
He also went to Berlin as the royal
envoy at the wedding of the crown
One of his most interesting missions
was to Japan in 1006, as the bearer
of the Order of the Garter to the Emperor, who personally invested him
with the Order of the Chrysanthemum.
although never before had the Emperor invested a recipient. As a compliment to the prince six chosen geishas of Kyoto performed the famous
Cherry Dance out of its due season.
Prince Arthur was amused when on*
said to him in quaint English, "You
very nice."
Prince Arthur had a great success

science when, as chairman of the appeal committee, he raised $129,000 to

Sir Thomas Crosby's name is a familiar one in the annals of the City of
London. It was Sir John Crosby, the
builder of Crosby Hall, who #as
knighted by Edward IV. for bis ser-
vices as sheriff of London. Then there
was Brass Crosby, Lord Mayor ol
London in 1771. and who won lasting
fame, and, incidentally, also imprisonment in the Tower of London, by
his vigorous championship of the liberties of the press. Horace Walpole

Royal Jewels Catalogued.
The royal jewels of priceless value
which are kept���under the charge of
the King's Librarian, the Hon. John
lortescue���in a strong room at Wind-
sor Castle have just been re-catalog,
ued and photographed.
Many of the jewels date back centuries and belonged to former Kings
and Queens of gngland. They consist
of pendants, necklaces, hair orna-
ments and rings o! great beauty.
Several of the greatest treasures are
of the time of Henry VIII.. and be-
longed to one or other of that monarch s queens.
The late King took much interest
in the jewels. Previously they were
? v*no��s apartments in the castle,
but he had them collected and ds-
posited in the strong noom which waa
built when he came to the throne.
King George and Queen Mary have
also interested themselves in tlie jewels, and by His Majesty's direction,
the .photographer on the Lord Cham-
berlain's staff at the castle has photographed every jewel. Thj catalogue
. and the photographs have been bound
/ and are kepi in the royal library.
In the gold pantry at Windsor Castle are some magnificent jeweled Communion cups, which have been used
by the Kings and Queens of England
for centuries and are still used by
the King and Queen when they take
the Sacrament. A recent addition to
the collection of treasures in the royal
library is the shirt that Charles I.
wore at his execution.

Ladles ana Gentlemen,���A. there
may he little opportunity of publicly
placing my viewa before you, previous
to election day, I herewith submit to
you my opinions on the most Important Issues to us aa citizens, at thla
period ln the history of our city. In
asking your support on election day,
January 11, 1912, I will support and
advocate the following measures, lt
you honor me by election:
1. Open discussion of our cltys
2. Even administration of our city
3. The placing ln flrst class condition of our streets and highways leading to and from the surrounding
municipalities, and co-operating with
them to thia end. This includes the
Praser river, our greatest highway.
4. The adoption of a harbor scheme
adequate to our Importance aa the
only fresh water harbor in the province.
5. Efficient service ln our city departments.
6. The Increase of the mounted
police service in Sapperton and the
upper parts of the city, and the installation of a system of communication to the head pollce ofllce, from
these parts.
7. Municipal ownership and immediate installation of a flrst class
gas plant.
8. Generous encouragement to all
industries, employing white labor
9. Encouragement ot a spirit of
friendship between the city council
and the citizens.
I think the time has arrived when
the C. P. R., the G. N. R. and the B.
C. E. R. should secure sufficient land
to establish yards of their own, Instead of using our public streets for
that purpose, as they do now.
I will support the reduction of
water and electric light rates to the
consumers of bhe same. I will at all
times safeguard tbe city's interest
against any corporation.
I will be pleased to place my views
more  fully  before you,  if the opportunity offers,  before election  day.

investigator Reports Illegal Marriages
Frequent in Colony at Los
Los Angeles, Jan. 8.���Among mem-
be. b of the big colony of Russians
known as tho Molokones, there is ai
least oue illegal marriage a week,
says Mme. J. Von Wagner, of the city
housing committee, who has been investigating the affairs of the colony
aince the charges of Elsie Navakoft,
a li'-year-old Russian girl, that her
parents tried to sell her in marriage
Ior *ouO.
Mme. Von Wagner declared that
there ie no bartering of brides, but
that the members of the colony, ignor-
antly tollowlng the practices of their
forefathers, iguore the marriage laws
of the country in .which they live.
As a result of in \ estimation by the
authorities it is uni.ounced that
members of the colony ha;e expressed entlte willingness to have all illegal ceremonies performed again by
regular license.
Mme. Von Wagner states that
while she could not learn of any specific instance of buying and selling
brides, lt ls customary for the Russians to exchange gifts. The groom
"presents" the .father of the bride
with a sum or money, but Bhe learned
of no case where the bride bought a
The Task of Italy Is a  Great  One-
Treachery and  Revenge.
It ts more than three months since
the war between Italy and Turkey
began, and while Italy has been as
successful as she had any reason to
expect, the end is far ln the future.
At the present time she has an army
of about 60,000 men In Tripoli; all
the coast is in her possession, and she
haa established her jurisdiction over
the low-lying land that divides the
sea-front from the interior plateau.
Her next move will be to scale tho
greet wall of cliff that serves as a
natural barrier to the interior. This
Is a serious task, indeed, since the
ramparts will be lined with desperate
AitI.m who will be flghting on their
own ground, and in auch a position
that the Italians will not be able tei
make much use of their heavy artillery. In the course of tbe next few
days the bloodiest flghting of the war
Is likely to take place.
A  Bloody  Wan.
There seems to he a general notion
to the effect that up to date the
war has been neither eventful nor
sanguinary. Compared with the Russo-Japanese war lt Js tame enough, no
doubt, but, nevertheless, the Italians
have lost probably luoo men killed
and four or five thousand wounded.
The losses of tbe Turks and Arabs
must bave been at least four times as
great. People made up their mlnas
that the was was to be bloodless ono
for no better reason that that the
first engagement was postponed for
a tew da>s after war had been declared, the interval having been requested by the governor of TTipoli iu
order that he might consider the demand to surrender. At the end of
this period he concluded to tight, and
a few hours' shelling fiom the Italian warships put an end to the Turkish resistance. Thus, with only a
few lives lost, the City of Tripoli was
captured, aad it was rashly concluded
tnat subsequent operations would be
equally one-sided.
The Fighting at the Springs.
It was not until the Italians had
landed' and had begun the task of
subjugating the nearby villages that
the real fighting began. The Turkish
soldiers did hot supply the opposition,
but the Arabs, among whom it is supposed were many members of the
Senoussi, a religious Beet that looks
forward to the day when the Moslem will rise and sweep the Christian
off the face of the earth, fought as
bravely as men ever fought. The
most desperate flghting occurred at
the Boumelian Springs, from which
the water supply of Tripoli is derived,
and lt ls said that every drop of
water the Italians took from the
springs was paid for with a drop of
blood. Had the Arabs succeeded in
holding the springs they would have
had the Italians at their mercy, since
they could have shut o.f their supply
of water.
Treachery and Revenge.
It was in one ot the fights about
the springs that the incidents occurred which led to charges of cruelty
and barbarism being made against
the Italian troops. The Arab chiefs
in the city had gone to the Italian
commander and had assured him that
their resistance was at aa end, and
that they were not averse to seeing
tbe Turk driven out, Then, pn October 23 and 26, when the Italians
were negaged In fierce conflict with
another body of Arabs, they were
treacherously attacked ln the rear
by the natives who had previously
surrendered. Their wounded were hut-
chered as they lay on the field by
both men and women, and the Italian losses were severe. When they
had beaten off the Arabs in front
they turned on those in the rear and
took their revenge. Arabs in batches
of tens and hundreds, men and women alike, were led forth and shot.
The disarmament of the whole population was decreed, and for an Arab
to be found ln possession ot a weapon
waa his death warrant. The- s measures were effective, and since then
the Italians have not been troubled by
those wtum they have conquered. <
**��   Furopesn   Operstic:.*.
Ou.> one attempt has '"-a made,
to carry on th* fighting elsewhere |
than ln Tripoli, and that was when
| the Duke of Abruzzl pursued some
[Turkish gunboats Into tbe harbor, of
I Preveza. In tlie Kplrus.. on tha day
that the war began. Austria immediately protected, and declared tbat
any invasion of Turkey's territory in
Europe would le regarded as an act
of hostility to herself. So, for political reasons, Italy has been obliged
to limit tbe area of conflict to Tripoli
itself. She is thus flghting under a
serious handicap, for she can really
do very little damage to Turkey beyond seizing the colony, and it may
require years to firmly establish her
sovereignty over the Arabs ln the interior. It is very likely that befoie
she has finally reduced Tripoli the
end of the war will have been officially declared, Italy paying Turkey
.'some suoh sum as 110,000,000 as in-
.- demnlty for tbe loss of the territory, j
f and   tben   taking  her  own   means  ot,
forcing possession.

give property a voice j ln ��� municipal
management.   In federal' affairs  the
Manhood Suffrage Act has been introduced, and the man who may be tailed on to defend bia country ls given
a voice ta the management of its affairs, although he may be denied the
municipal franchise, while hls female
neighbor exercises it, voting on her
property which,may be subjected to
t*x��s by the municipal <G*j)ncil to be
elected.    An anomaly for which correction ha*��,been   sought,  says   tho
Hamilton Times, is that an incorporated company owning a large amount
of property in a-municipality, may be
entirely excluded'Irom the franchise,
while a small property owner," male,
or female, exercises the vote.   There
are a good many things in our sys-

seem to offer room for Improvement,
and which furnish.problems for the
study of the thoughtful.

Eventful   Life sf  Commander  Frederic George Brlns.
To be drowned wben at his post of
duty was the tragic fate of Commander Frederic George Brine, of his majesty's battleship St, Vincent, the
flagship of Hoar-Admiral Richard H.
Pelrse. A martyr to Btern heroic
duty, his death bring home the reality of the hard life lived by our naval
warders, a life full of hardship and
peril, a life ln every way more arduous than aay life lived by landsmen.
A battle squadron of four super-
Dreadnoughts left Weymouth with
the fast cruiser Liverpool. There was
a fierce gale, and the Liverpool, after
some hours of ineffectual steaming,
was forced to run for sheker to Lun-

by' practically all present.   For a lon
time nothing could be seen of Commander Brine, but at last he wai discerned   feebly   struggling   some  distance  away.     Willing hands quickly
manned a second lifeboat, which was
soon on its way to the spot where
the struggling man was last seen. Hc
was picked up and taken on board,
but life was extinct.   His magnificent
efforts  ln  such  a   sea   had   arousec
hope and enthusiasm to fever pitch in
the hundreds of watchers in the St.
Vincent, and the disappointment and
grief manifested on board when it became known that the recovery of hls
body had been Just too late bore eloquent testimony to the great esteem
ln which Commander Brine was held.
The Btory of his death ought to send
a thrill of pride and sorrow through
the whole British  Empire.      It i3 a
story that could not be outmatched In
all  the annals   of   our   seadogs���an
epic   tale   which   some   great   poet
could make an immortal song of, As
the Star points out, the spirit of Com
man der   Brine   is   the  spirit   of  the
navy.    Ke fought while he had sight
to Bee, a breath to breathe, a muscle
to move, and a nerve to strain.    He
fought out the last spark of fire in
his great heart.   The navy is full ol
men  like Commander Brine.      It is
well for    Britain that she has them
in  such  abundance.'     In the day of
battle    a    heart    like    Commander
Btine's  would be  worth much.      He
would have fought his ship till   the
last rivet fell out of the last  plate
Let us do him honor, and, honoring
him,  let  us honor the   faithful   and

about 37,entered the cadets' training

years later, a sub-lieutennnt ln July.
1893, and   In   October, 1895,   reached
the rank of lieutenant.    He was promoted to commander flve years ago.

Patron Saint of Journalism.
It wlll be news to many journalists
to learn that they have an officially
selected patron saint. Pius IX., at
the request of a number of Continental jornalists, issued a decree on the
point. He recommended Journalists
to seek the hel;i of St. Francis de
Sales, whose body has Just lately
been transferred, with great pomp
and ami I popular rejoicing, to a new
church at Annecy, ln Savoy, his native place. The choice, our contemporary thinks, was an apt one. for
St. Francis was a man of letters. His
famous work, "The Sevout Life," ls
still popular, "no doubt because of
the lightness of touch with which it
I.s written and the unerring Journalistic instinct (if one may put it so in
writing of the work of a saint) with
which he compels attention to serlom
question by the skillful Use of anecdote and Illustration."���Manchester

Thomas Taylor, Minister Of Public

them to take Immediate steps towards the impuuwment of the road

the entry into Canada from the United States, and the out-let for the
framing districts of Cloverdale, Hazelmere, and Ladner, lt ahould be widened to 100 feet, of which width at

Whereas, a portion of this road

Canadian  Highway;  and,
Whereas, the aald road is the main
artery by which tourists to British
Columbia at present arrive, and on
Which they form an opinion as to
the roads of our province and of Canada generally; and.
Whereas, it has never been ln good
condition, and tends to give this province a bad reputation as to roads
generally;  and,
Whereas, this section of road
passes tbrough both Dominion government and provincial lands, and is
the outlet for the farming districts
on the south side of the Fraser river,
Including Cloverdale, Hazelmere and
Lainer districts; and, |
Whereas, this is the main road
leading to tbe great bridge over the
Eraser river; and, |
. Whereas, the Dominion government bas signified its intention of
aiding the building of roads, therefore:��� i
,. We, the undersigned committee of
the Canadian Highway Association/
humbly request the Dominion government and the Provincial government,'
to' improve this road by widening the
right-of-way to a width of one hundred feet, ao aa to provide for the
traffic requirements ot the near future, and that of thla right-of-way a
width of not less than twenty feet
be now provided wtth a permanent
bard-surface pavement.
We. the undersigned committee of
the Canadian Highway Association,
heg to express our appreciation of the
work already accomplished by the
���wis���***** *l ����� ttrm*lma*m.*-ot British Columbia towards the realization
Of a Canadian highway, stretching-
without break, from Alberni to Hall-
':��� We beg respectfully to urge upon
tho Provincial government the pushing to completion of the Canadian
highway between Alberni and the Al.
berta bondary, an 1 particularly the
pushing of work on that section
crossing the Hope mountains.
Wc also request that the Provincial
government will endeavor to secure
the cooperation of the other provinces and of the Dominion govern-j
ment, ln tbe construction of the
Canadian highway across Canada."

"I wish to express my gratitude to
you ior the benefit I received from your
most wonderful Dyspepsia Tablets.
Having taken other medicines without
having received tbe slightest relief, I

Tablets and thought I would give them
s trial. I have been completely cured
of dyspepsia. I will be only too pleased
to advise any one troubled with dyspepsia
to give them a fair trial."
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets not only
give the immediate relief from heartburn, flatulence, acidity of tlie stomach
and biliousness, which iiso much needed,
but if taken regularly for a few days or
weeks they completely cure the most
aggravated cases of stomach trouble.

And far away ln New Tors' and
down south ln Los Angeles men
sprang to the bidding. An bour or
two, perhaps, and all was over; the
fnarvellous chase of months ended
in the arrest,,as the police say, of
two amazing and clever thieves, who
bad backed their cunning for a quarter of a million against the criminal
detective force Of Canada and the
art of one of the most powerful detective forces ever organised.
As a result "two of the biggest safe-

extradited to Canada very shortly.

Olympic   and   Hawke   Collision   Sets
Scientists   Thinking.
The extraordinary collision between H. M. 8. Hawke and the White
Star liner Olympic in the Solent on
September 20 last in which thecauBe
has been put down by experts as
suction, created by the liner drawing the cruiser into her quarter, has
aroused the interest of scientists the
world over. Professor Sidney A.
Reeve, who is lecturer ln termody-
namics at the United States Naval
Academy, last April delivered a lecture on "Suction, or Hydraulic Interaction Between Passing Ships," ln
which he forecasted, or at least outlined, an accident similar to that
which occurred between the Olympic
and the Hawke.
The Admiralty Court which investigated the collision, blamed the
Olympic, but held that the negligent
navigation was solely that of her
pilct who was conipulsorily ln charge.
Dealing with one of the theories
brought up by the evidence, the Right
Hon. Sir Samuel Evans, who presided, satd:
"1 now come to the circumstances
which occurred immediately befoie
the vessels came into collision. When
the Hawke was iu a position to
clear the Kast Conical buoy an order
was given to tort her helm five degrees. This was dene in order to give
us much room as possible to the
Olympic, 'the Hawke changed her
heading to the south under this helm
to the extent of less than a point.
Suddenly, however, she swerved In
towards the large vessel. Evidence
was given by Mr. Taylor, a naval constructor, in the United States Navy
Department, on the theory of 'suction,' or interaction between vessels,
especially in shallow water���a subject lo which he had given much
study. Interesting experiments were
nUo made in the presence of the Elder Brethren and myself. They were
not. very conclusive, especially as to
the direction and extent of the forces,
but they showed that disturbing
forces were set up. ln this case the
speeds of the two vessels were high,
and   the  disparity   between  the   dis
placement of the two vessels waa
enormous���tbey were roughly as
seven to one; and they were In close
proximity. Moreover, lf the place of
collision which I have accepted is
substantially the correct one, lt happened that Just before the swerve
the Hawke was passing over the shallowest part of a shoal, which would
tend to give her a sheer towards
deeper water. The Olympic was at
about the same time passing over a
bottom which was Irregular and of a
comparatively small depth."
Profeasor Reeve's Theories.
Professor Reeve is not a professional navigator, but ln earlier years
was an enthusiastic amateur boatman. He has always regarded ships
and sails as the best of fields for instruction ln mechanics of fluids. For
a ship is one of the most delicately
balanced of all devices (except the
aeroplane), ready to heel or veer in
any of several waya, should the balance of wind and water be thrown
out. His attention waa first drawn
formally to the subject of suction by
the collision between the United
States and the Monterey,' in New
York lower bay, in April, 190S, in the
trial of which his opinion was sought.
He says:
"That was my flrat case, but I have
since gathered data concerning some
titty others. The second caae Into j
which I was called concerned a col-'
llslon previous in data to my flrst. It
happened in March, 1906, when the
seagqing Tug Lehigh, overtaken by
the coaster Denver, near West Bank
light, attempted to drop back, ln order to cross under the Denver's stern
for Rarltan Bay. But she waa caught
by the Denver's suction and drawn
into the latter's port quarter. The
impact was so sudden that a man on
the tug was pitched overboard out of
a door.
"Another case in New York Harbor, involving the same principles but
with opposite effect, was in 1908,
when the Parlma, overlapped by tbe
larger and faster Prinzessin Irene,
was sheered from her course by the
latter's hydraulic influence. But In
this case the Parlma, Instead of being
attracted toward the Irene, was repelled athwart channel and sent
"According to my best knowledge,
what was probably the first recorded case In American waters was tn
1846, when the Worcester and the
Governor, both Long Island Sound
steamboats, came into collision in
Hell Gate. In the same year the Ntiu-
gatuck and the Rhode Island, also
Sound craft, came into similar collision. But lt was a dozen years later
before the phenomenon of suction
fount! even a name. In the case of
the Xarragansett and the Providence,
ln 1869, it was recognized that the
faster boat had 'towed' the slower
one, by suction, for some distance
before collision finally ensued.
Opens New  Viewpoint.
"Of course, the interaction between
meeting   vessels   is  practically    nothing.     Even   with   ovei taking    vessels
collision occurs only ln the minority
of cases.   Thc combination of circumstances���courses,  speeds  and  bottom
J ���which  bring  it  on  are   just   what
��� need   Investigation.    All   this,   1   believe,  must create a new curriculum
' ln the science of navigation.
I    "In   naval   warfare   knowledge   of
suction will be a mighty aid in close
I quarters.    For   if   one  ship  planr,  to
. ram another and  chooses   the   right
I condition no power on earth will be
' ahle to prevent the collision.    Speed
on the part of the escaping   vessel
wlll only exaggerate the danger.
"The theory of suction Is one ot
the simplest tn hydraullca to undei-
stand. It ls familiar to all pilots that
every moving vessel piles up a mound
of water about Its stem, from which
the water flows ln every direction
(but chiefly straight aft) alongside
and beneath, toward the stern, wbere
the streams meet and pile up again
in another similar mound. This la
best visible with tugboats running
"The hydraulic energy which the
ship piles up at the bow and btei a
ln the form of surplus pressure is
transformed amidships into surplus
motion astern, and this surplus motion must be accompanied by a deficit of pressure.
"Each vessel carries scuh surplus-
and deficit water pressure along with
her. When one vessel overlaps another it ls the mutual cancellation ot
these plus and minus pressures which
causes sheer. It ls, according to
the 'phase' of this mutual cancellation, that the aheer is either in or
"The stern of a ship Is much harder to deflect than the bow; hence
the Hawke would be the one to feel
it first. But the forces are slight in
this phase and little aheer results.
What Led to tho Collision.
The next phase led to the collision..
The plus pressure of the port bow
of the Hawke ls cancelled by the
great deficit pressure amidships of
the Olympic, while the. deficit on the
port mid-length of the Hawke ls cancelled by the surplus water at the
Olympic's stern; hence the Hawke
sheer to port
"The instant this sheer begins it
becomes too powerful to be broken.
Forty thousand tons of water per
minute are flowing aft on each side
of the Olympic. Once the Hawke's
stem ls deflected Into this torrent she
becomes uncontrollable. Her very
presence in tbe current hinders the
water and exaggerates its power. Her
own momentum and that of her pwn
10,000 ton current of water adls Itself to the destructive force. The
space between the vessels ls crossed
in a few seconds, and before either
ship can get abelm usually the thins
is over. Though in those cases where
the helm is gotten hard over lt proves
I       What the  8klppers   Thought.
The Hawke's commander expressed the opinion that "suction, pure
and simple" caused the Hawke to
turn to port. He denied the statements that had been made by witnesses who had been aboard the
Olympic that the Hawke's helm waR
starboarded. He also told of previous
experiences where suction affected
the movement of his vessel.
Captain B, J. Smith, commander of
the Olympic, and one of the oldest
and most trusted navigators In the
White Star service, opposed the suction theory almost in its entirety.
He admitted that a rapidly moving
steamship might create some slight
suction in the water, but did not believe that It would develop force
enough to cause serious damage to
any sizable craft that might be passing far away or near.
