French Navy- Department Investigates
a Musician's Remarkabla Claim j )
If the' discovery of a musician at:
Clermont, near Paris, be all that it Is
claimed to be, ships in-the future will
no. longer be liable to sink, and salr!
vage companies may liquidate their
business. He claims to have diseov-i
ered one of nature's mysterious secrets,
but for the present declines to give the
slightest hint as to what it is.
For some time past the ministry of
the navy has been receiving letters'
from a pianist at Clermont, who stated
that he was ready to prove by con
clusive tests that be had a secret for
preventing battleships riddled with
shells and boats of every description
from sinking. Even if a ship were
cut up into several pieces he could
prevent it from going to the bottom.
One can imagine the frame of mind
with which the officials at the minis
try received these missives. But some
how or other, after returning again
and again to the charge, he succeeded
in inducing the ministry to appoint a
representative to attend some experi
ments in a pond in the park of the
Chateau de Sarlievras.
A naval construction engineer, be
sides a general, a colonel, a major and
university professor, was present.
An exact model of a submarine in zinc,
sornei. two yards long, and a similar
model of a battleship, representing its
compartments, turretSi. guns and the
minutest details, were tried. All the
valves in the submarine were opened,
and it was allowed to sink. In a few
minutes it rose to the surface. The
miniature battleship was then riddled
with revolver shots, and its hull was
ripped open, but it kept afloat." Noth
ing apparently could make it sink one
inch in the water. . . :.: .
The spectators looked on in. wonder- J
ment. :. They came to. the conclusion
that perhaps the pianist after all while
running his fingers over the scales and
playing Beethoven's, sonatas bad dis
covered some valuable secrets,, They
wanted to know what they were. .The
inventor, at this point said ' that he
had Shown them clearly enough that he
knew how to make ships unshakable.
He would not say another ; word until
hard - and fast- contract had been
signed. He would then make experi
ments on a larger scale, : - , - '
