Wlreleaa Telegraphy Expected Boon to
Overcome the Dlfllculty.
Tho most momentous Improvement
In nuvlgutlou since thu invention of
tho chronometer, more than 140 years
ago, has just been foreshadowed in a
modest purngruph in the report of tho
chief of the bureau of equipment of
the United States navy.
"It Is believed," says Chief Mnu
ncy, "that the development of wire
less telegraphy will enable these (time)
signals to bo distributed over water as
well us over land, and that before long
every ship at him, in addition to every
laud station, will receive dally noon
signals from thu standard obburvntory
What docs Unit mean Nothing less
than the elimination of the last ela
meut of uncertainty from the problem
of llnding tho position of a ship at
sea. Hitherto the one weak point In
navigation has been the dlllleulty of
carrying standard time on n voyage.
