Pitteburg. Pa., Aug. 23-C. R. Moore.
F. J. Rubly, 0. E. Hallam, C. C. Peters
and John J. Fitzgerald applied today to
Governor Pennypacker for charter for
the Pittsburg Tube Transmission Com
pany. Prominent business men of Chi
cago and Pittsburg are said to be behind
che promoters of the plan. They propose
to construct and operate a pnuematic
tube transmission line connecting frieght
uepois, aoparcmeni stores, newspaper
offices and similar shipping headquarters.
The so-called pnuematic relay tube sys
tem will be used. The Inventors and
manufacturers are said to be ready to
give a penal bond to guarantee the absd
lute practicability, utility and econeir.y of
this method. It is claimed that this sys
tem is much cheaper than others, and
therefore its snccess here is believed to

TO BUILD PUGET SOUND NAVAL DOCK
(Scrlpps Newi Association)
Washington, D. C, Aug. 23 The
Bureau of Yards and Docks is completing
the plans for the only dry dock authorized
by Congress at the late session, that is in
tended for the navy yard at Puget Sound,
The borings for the structute are now
being made at the Bremerton Establish
ment, the location of the dock being near
the present dock.
' The plans, which have not yet been
approved, as to general dimensions, will
be among the largest in the world. The
length of the dock will be 760 feet, aud
the depth 57 feet Much interest attaches
to the dock on account of the demands
likely to be made upon the structure and
the yard shops by returning vessels of
the Pacific and Asiatic stations. The
friends of the Mare Navy Yard are fear
ful that it means the withdrawal from
that yard of much of the work which has
always gone to Vallooc. The completion
of the big dock at Bremerton will place
the navy yard there on a secure footing,
and will add greatly to the value of the
plant for naval repair work. Incidently
it will mean a great boom for Puget
