One cannot help but imagine, looking at its
possibilities, the grand work it will per
form in the saving of life.
Visions of wrecked and stranded vessels
rise in the fancy, and long lines of surviving
but badly scared passengers or sailors, pass
from ship to shore over the imaginary rope
that has been hauled from one point to
the other by means of the cord that lies con
cealed in this wonderful rocket. Of course

These guns throw a projectile to which is
attached a line. On land it can be thrown
with accuracy, but on a rocking vessel it
rould probably be of little use even if car
ried. The rockets are comparatively inex
tvensive. thev can be stored at all possible
points where they may be needed, they can
be carried on every vessel without incon
venience and thrown from its decks as ac
curately as from the land, and they can be
hermetically sealed if necessary to protect
the charge irom dampness.
THE JTEW DEVICE.
This rocket has a steel head 16 or 18
inches long and three in diameter. At its
base is a series of holes in which the quick
match may be applied to ignite the charge.
Irom the base ot the head extends a cylin
der about six feet long, and this contains an
axual hole in which a cord 1,100 or 1,200
yards long is "faked." To use the rocket, it
is only necessary to set it on end at an angle
if about 45 degrees, apply the match and
let it go.
The range is about 1,200 yards. As the
rocket sails over this space, carrying hope
and probably life to the shipwrecked
voyager, the cord, an end of which has
been fastened to a cable, pays out easily
without retarding the flight of the rocket
The cord reaches the vessel or the land, the
cable is hauled after and the process of life
Invention in the field of naval armament
and warfare is astonishing. Hardly a week
Jiasses that something new and in the line of
progress does not make its appearance at
the rooms of the ordnance bureau of the
Navy Department, which form quite a little
museum or themselves. There are quick
loading magazine and repeating rifles in
numerable, curious and rapid revolvers
without end, one of the latest of which is a
double-action, simultaneous loading and ex
traction pistol that is the most murderous
thing yet invented in the way of small
arms. As the cylinder is thrown out for the
purpose of loading the shells are automatic
ally extracted, and the whole six chambers
can be loaded at once.
The marine or soldier carries several
packages of the cartridges, which are made
tip in packs of six each, and one of these
packs can be shoved into the cylinder in the
same time it would require to insert a single
shell. More important, however, is a new
invention for the training of gun carriages
by an electric motor. In training by means
of steam, or hydraulic pressure, or com
pressed air, there is always danger that
Eome one of the connecting pipes will be
ehot off, and in such event the gun would be
useless. Trained by an electric motor the
wires would be less likely to be injured,
and if cut off they could be immediately re
connected. Still more momentous to those who ex
pect to engage in naval battle is an arrange
ment for firing guns by electricity. The
great present obstacle in the way of ac
curacy in planting a projectile where it
will do most harm is the motion of the ves
sel during the time that elapses between the
sighting of the gun and the explosion of
the charge. Short as this is it is sufficient
to destroy the aim of probably four out of
five shots, even when the vessel is rolling a
little, and if the sea be rough it is next to
impossible to aim with any precision what
ever. By the electrical arrangement either the
captain of the guns or the captain of the
vessel may see exactly what guns are loaded
and ready to be fired. The completion of
the operation of loading moves an automatic
signal, and at a glance it may be determined
what guns are ready to be "fired. If the
captain ot the gnns fires them he holds in
his hand a miniature battery encased in
come non-conducting substance, the whole
but a little larger than the handle of a
A CHEAT IMPBOVEMENT.
The moment he gets his aim, when the
sight is on the exact spot it is desired to
reach, he pulls a trigger, a spark flies along
a wire with the speed of thought, and the
projectile is on its way before the lanyard
string could be pulled by the systems now
in vogue. It is in fact a simultaneous aim
ing and firing, a: one would do with an or
dinary rifle to the eye. No matter how
much the vessel may be rolling or how
rapidly the object may be shilting, the gun
ner who aims correctly may touch the spot
at which he aims as surely as a good marks
man with a rifle. One gun oa a whole
broadside may be fired at wilL
If the captain of the vessel does the firing
be may sit at a little table and see every
gun. The automatic signal tells him when
a gun is ready and what gun it is, and to
fire he merely presses an electric button,
upon which is marked the number of the
cun, which has been loaded and sighted. It
is as easy as playing on a type-writer.

An Increase of Both Supply and Demand In
Recent Yearn The Itnilo of Con
sumption In Countries Other
Than the United States.
"Washington", July 6. Colonel
Switzler, Chief of the Bureau of Sta
tistics, for the purpose ol answering a great
demand for information on the subject, has
just issued, in advance of his next quarterly
report, a special statement in pamphlet
form showing the production and consump
tion of spirituous and malt liquors and
wines in the United States, United King
dom, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden
and tha Dominion ot Canada for a series of
years so far as data in regard thereto could
be secured irom the official publications of
those countries. The information is em
bodied in a series of tables, illustrated by
diagrams, and is a very valuable document,
which will be much sought for.
Statement No. 1 shows that the produc
tion in the United States of distilled spirits
increased from 17,000,000 gallons in 18C5 to
72,000,000 gallons in 1888, and that the pro
duction ot fermented liquors rose from 3,
600,000 barrels in 1865 to 21,700,000" barrels
Prom statement No. 2 it appears that the
consumption of. distilled spirits decreased
from 60,000,000 gallons in 1870 to 76,000,000
in 18S8, while the consumption of wine in
creased from 12.000,000 gallons in 1870 to
36,000.000 in 1888, and or malt liquors from
205,000,000 in 1870 to 767,000,000 in 1888.
Ot the liquors consumed in 1888, 97 per
per cent of the wines and 99 per cent of the
malt liquors were of domestic production.
Statement No. 4 shows that in 1888 16,000,
000 bushels of grain and 2,600,000 gallons
of molasses were used in the manufacture of
J. lie Commissioner or Internal lievenue
furnishes no information in regard to the
quantity of material consumed m the manu
facture of malt liquors in the United States.
The total international and customs reve
nue derived from malt liquors, distilled
spirits and wines increased from 544,231.240
in 1886 to $100,293,628 in 188 The con
sumption per capita of malt liquors in
creased from 1.36 trallons in 1840 to 12.48
gallons in 18S8. The consumption of wiue
per capita increased from .29 of a gallon in
1840 to .79 of a gallon in 1888. The con
sumption per capita of distilled spirits fell
from 2.52Jgallon8 in 1840 to 1.3 gallon in
1888. There has been little change in the
consumption of spirituous liquors since
1876, and the greater consumption in 1840,
1850 and I860, as shown by these tables,
was probably occasioned in great part by
the extensive use of spirits in the manu
facture of burning fluids for illuminating
purposes prior to the discovery of petroleum
rather than to their consumption as bever
ages. The following are some of the leading
First The rapid increase of the consumption
of malt liquor in the United States.
Second In the consumption ot beer per
capita Great Britain stands first. Germany
second, the United States third and Canada
Third France is the larcest consumer of
wine per capita.
Fourth Denmark appears to be the largest
consumer of spirituous liquor per capita.
O wine to the absence of precise data in the
official publications of this and foreign
countries showing the relative amounts of
spirituous liquors consumed as a beverage
and in the arts of manufactures, Colonel
Switzler is unable to aflord the ,exact infor
mation upon this subject so often sought for
by legislators and others, and so Important
to a full understanding o! the question in its
social bearings; but irom the best lights be
fore him the consumption of alcoholic
liquors in the arts and manufactures in the
United States w ould appear to be between 7
and 10 per cent of the entire consumption.
THE CORCORAN GALLERY.
A Valuable Addition In the Shape of a Land
cape by Honuean.
ISrXCZAI. TZLXCBAX TO TUX DISFATCH.1
Washington, July 7. The Corcoran
Gallery of Art is about to have another in
valuable addition to its collection in the
landscape by Theodore Bousseau, purchased
for it by Knoedler, the Paris dealer, at the
sale of the Secretan Gallery. It is one of
Rousseau's best. It is about 24x36 inches in
size, and the price paid was $15,000.
But one other picture in the Cor
coranGaliery cost so much, and that is the
landscape, by Corot, bought at the Morgan
sale in New York, and for which the same
price was paid. The trustees of the gallery
authorized Knoedler to bid $100,000 tor the
f;reat Millet. "The Angelus," which shows
iow shortsighted some people can be. A
few years ago Knoedler offered to the gallery
a Millet almost, if not quite, as good as
"The Angelus," for the comparatively small
sum of $9,000. Knoedler had bought it for
$8,000. The Purchasing Board, which had
paid American artists as high as $12,000 for
wretched trash, refused the offer of Knoed
ler, and this Millet now hangs in the great
gallery ot Millionaire "Walters, in Balti
Uhl'i portrait of President Cleveland,
which has taken its place on the walls of
the gallery at the most modern end of the
long line of Presidential portraits from
"Washington down, is decidedly disappoint
ing. It is e fairish likeness, but the treat
ment is so broad as to be almost brutal.
Breadth is all well enough, but there should
be refinement as well, and that with
out loss of strength. Thero is an
expression in the countenance, and a
tone of the flesh, as well, which suggests
that the ex-President had been out on a
jolly spree, the night before Mr. Uhl had
his last sitting. The trustees of the gjllery
gave Uhl the order some time previous to
the expiration of Mr. Cleveland's term of
office, but the busy work of closing his
administration left him no time for picture
making. The artist could get but one brief
sitting before the departure for New York.
The portrait hangs on the east wall of the
east room of the gallery, beside Healy's
portrait of President Arthur.
PARSONS' POLITICAL PLAN.
lie Wants to Divide the White Tote In Order
to Split the Colored Tote.
Washington, July 7. United States
Attorney Iewis E. Parsons, of the Northern
district of Alabama, claims that his plan
for increasing the Bepublican vote of the
State is not generally understood. "Our
aim and object," he says, "is to divide the
white vote of the South. This vote must be
divided before the rolored vote will divide.
If the whites were divided, this would com
pel the Democrats to 'count fair' in elections.
A fair count ol the vote would force
them to appeal to the coloreM men, in kind
ness and good faith, to vote with them.
When they do this some colored men will
vote with them. This will undoubtedly re
sult in both parties treating them fairly and
giving to them the protection they cannpt
and do not now get. This will, we hope and
believe, rolve the race question. Then the
race question will not arise on all occasions,
but the question will be, "Is he fit and com
petent." It is this the men in Alabama,
who think with me, are trying and hoping
to do; that is, trying to divide the white vote.
I have never advocated the organization of
a white men's party. The organization to
which I belong, and which has been so per
sistently misrepresented by interested par
ties; does not assume to be, and is not, a
political party. But its only purpose is to
aid the Republican party; to draw to it
white men who believe in the principles of
that party and desire to come to us, and, If
possible, to get a fair count of the votes as
cast. Until we can get the vote counted as
cost, every one cast for us, whether black
or white, is counted against ns at the will
or pleasure of the Democratic party. Of
course, this is a dead weight to the National
Republican party, because that vote Is rep
resented in Congress and in the Electoral
College against that party."

"The native factions at Samoa have laid
down their arms for the time being. The
truce will continue at least until the result
of the Berlin conference is made known.
Admiral Kimberly had a little dispute
with one of his captains, and the latter was
relieved from duty. Nearly all of the
Americans have left the island.
lCOFTKIOniED BT TUI ASSOCIATED ITIESS, 1839.1
Apia, Samoa, June 22, via Steameb
Alameda, Bait Fbancisco, July 7.
The oceanic steamer Alameda touched at
Apia and toot away nine officers and CO
men of the United States frigate Trenton,
who were left here when the steamer Rock
ton sailed for San Francisco last month
with 450 survivors of the recent hurricane.
Admiral Kimberly and his two staff officers,
Lieutenants Rittenhouse and Merrion, and
five men will remain in Apia.
The Admiral states that the department
had probably issued orders under the
impression that the United States man-of-war
Alert was here, but as there was no
American vessel at Apia now, he did not
care to abandon the place entirely. The
Admiral intends to remain here until the
arrival of the American man-of-war,
when he will probably use herforafiagahip.
As soon as mail, which had been received
by the Mariposa, arrive here, Lieutenant
Graham, the officer in command, went to the
barracks and read a dispatch to the men an
nouncing the fact that they were to return
LEAVING THE ISLAND.
"When the Alameda arrived to-day the men
and baggage were placed aboard. In a few
hours a number of native boats went out to
the steamer and hundreds of the natives
stood on the shore and gave the American
sailors a parting cheer. During the last six
weeks the Samoan Islands have enjoyed a
period of quiet, such as has not been known
ior'many months before.
The native parties virtually declared a
truce early in May, and since that time the
political situation of the country has as
sumed a peaceful aspect The only man-of-war
here now is the German gunboat Wolf,
which arrived from New Zealand June 15.
The Nipsic, the only American vessel saved
from the storm, has gone to Honolulu for
repairs under the convoy of the Alert.
The two ships left here for Auckland,
May 9. hut in six days they returned, and
Captain Mullan, of the Nipsic, and Captain
Green, of the Alert, reported that after
going 250 miles thcr had deemed it Inad
visable to proceed further. The Nipsic's
rudder broke, and she became practically
A DANGEBOUS TBIP.
The rudder was repaired, but the vessels
made such slow progress that there seemed
to be no probability of their reaching
Auckland before the 'last week in May, at
which season severe weather might be ex
pected off the New Zealand coast. Captain
Mullan desired to proceed, it possible, but
he laid the matter before the line officers of
his own ship. None of the Nipsic's officers
desired to return, and they expressed wil
lingness to accept the risk ot encountering
Captain Mullan, however, "believed it
would be impossible to lower boats from the
Nipsic, in case it became necessary to do so,
and there seemed to be some danger that if
the vessel met with rough water she would
lose her rudder entirely and then be swept
into the trough of the sea and rolled over.
Captain Mullan accordingly gave orders
for the ship's return to Apia.
Admiral Kimberly expressed considera
ble displeasure at the return of the Nipsio
and ATert, after having gone 250 miles, and
reproved Captain Mullan for his action.
Captain Mullan asked to be relieved of bis
BELIEVED FBOM COMMAND.
The Admiral at once detached him, and
ordered Lieutenant Commander H. "W.
Lyon, of the Trenton, to take command of
the Nipsic He also issued orders for the
ships to go to Pago-Pago and take on coal
and proceed to Auckland. The Nipsic and
the Alert sailed for Pago-Pago within a
few hours after their return here.
The orders were afterward changed, and
Honolulu was made the destination of the
ships instead of Auckland. The vessels
sailed from Pago-Pago for Honolulu June
1. The regular mail schooner, which runs
to Tntuila every month to connect with the
Oceanic steamer to and from San Francisco,
failed to meet the north-bound steamer Zea
landia, which passed May 25, and conse
quently no mail left here lor America and
Last month Captain Mullan bad gone to
Tutuila on the schooner to take the steamer
for San Francisco, but he was left at Leone,
a small settlement on the island, for a
month to wait for the next steamer to pass.
Chief Engineer G. W. Hall, of the Nipsic,
who was ill with dysentery, was detached
from his vessel by the Medical Board. He
was also left at Leone to wait for the June
steamer, but died on the 16th inst. His
home'was Syracuse, N. Y.
A TEMPOBABT TREATY.
During the last two months there has been
practically a state of peace between the two
native parties. Mataafa wrote to Tamasese
expressing a aesire mat peace De pro
claimed. Tamasese replied that he was
willing to stop fighting for the present, but
he declined to make any negotiations fcr
permanent peace until the result of the Ber
lin conference should be learned here. Ma
taafa abandoned, his fortifications early in
May, sent his men honw and moved to the
eastern end of Apia.
He stated he desired to show Admiral
Kimberly and thev American people
generally that he desired to do-all in his
power to promote peace. He said he was
ready to abide by the decision of the Berlin
conference. Mataafa gave a feast two
weeks ago, to which he invited over 100
foreign residents and visitors, including all
American naval officers here nnd the

ONLY AN ACCIDENT.
A fatal accident occurred here two weeks
ago which created much rxcitement at
the time. Two Trenton sailors were in a
saloon keDt bv a German named Voight
The latter had a loaded revolver in his J
hand, and in attempting to lower the
hammer the weapon was discharged.
The ball struck one of the sailors named
Bernhardt Ricklin and killed him instant

not the Bhooting was accidental, and so
Voight was detained by a guard ot Amer

notified of the affair. The Consul held an
investigation afterward, and demanded his

The Fierce Contest Between a Federal Sol
dier and n Negro.
ISRCUI. TELEGRAM TO TBI DlSrATCB.!
Atlanta, July 7. A strange and fatal
prize fight occurred near Mobile, Ala.,
about which little has ever been said, and
probably nothing ever published. A wiry,
athletio light-weight "Federal soldier was
pitted against a burly, heavy-weight negro.
The soldier weighed about 125 pounds, the
negro about 240. The soldier knew the
science of boxing and wrestling, while the-
negro Had to depend upon natural strength.
The fight was for $100 a side, with no rules,
but each man to go in to whip the other any
way he could. The scene of the fight was
near a Federal camp three miles from Mo
bile, the time early one Sunday morning.
Each man was stripped to the waist
The negro was barefooted and the soldier
wore heavy wooden sandals, which were
destined to play a conspicuous part in the
battle. The two men scuffled and dodged
about the ring half an hour. Suddenly the
little soldier raised one of his heavy sandals
and gave his antagonist a terrible kick on
the shin. The blow broke the leg and the
severe nain threw the necrro off his iruard.
He bent his body forward and clapped his'
nanus to nis snin. xnis was wnat the sol
dier wanted, and when the negro's head was
low enough he struck him on his windpipe
with the sharp side of his hand, with suf
ficient force to break the negro's neck.
There was a groan and the negro dropped to
the ground dead.

FROM AN UNTIMELY DEATH.
Mr. H. Robertson, a native oC Scotland, bnt
who has been a resident of this country tor sev

with the following symptoms: He bad a heavy
dragging pain across the small of his back, ex
tending from one side to the other, and a bloat
ed, dropsical condition of the bowels, high col
ored urine, and he noticed that sometimes it
contained a reddish, brick-colored sediment,
and at other times the sediment was ot a light
ish color. He noticed that he felt very tired In
the morning, and as he gradually grew weaker,
his stomach became affected. His appetite
became poor, and he was constantly annoyed
with sour eructations of gas from bis stomach
alter eatlnir. and on account of the kidneys not
performing their function properly, his blood
became charged with rheumatic poison, so that
ne naa mucn pain arxmt nis snomaers ana au

emaciated he began to cough, and he felt much
tightness and weieht across bis lunes. In
speaking of the matter one day, he said:
"I doctored with the best doctors I could hear
of, but was fast netting worse. I became mel
ancholy and thought 1 could not live. Finally
I began treatment Vith the physicians of the
Polypathio Medical Institute, who are special
ists for chronic diseases, and although confined
to the bed when I commenced their treatment,
my improvement was very rapid, and I have
been entirely cured by these physicians, and I
gladly sign my name. H. Robertson."

CURED OF ULCERATIVE CATARRH
Residing at 3440 Penn avenne, has also been a
great sufferer from catarrh. The tenacious
secretion that formed In her nose, and which
she was unable to discbarge, ulcerated into the
bones until the walls of her nose fell in, giving
it a flattened appearance. In vain she tried to
find some doctor that could cure ber of catarrh
before this ulceration took place, and thus save
ber from the disfigurement of ber nose that
she will now have to carry as long as she lives.
Her sense of smell also became entirely de
stroyed. She bad much headache, ringing
sounds in her ears and dizziness. As some ot
the mucus that dropped down from her head
lodged In the bronchial tubes of ber lungs her
breath became very short. After becoming
cured at the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute,
at 323 Penn avenne, she says:
"I wish to tell the people that although I
have treated with several physicians for
catarrh I never found any relief until I com
menced treatment with the physicians ot the
Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute, and now I am
happy to state that after using their treatment
I am entirely cured.
