One of the most serious problems
which ship owners have to face W that
' of coaling: their steamers In a rapid and
economical manner. In these days of
mechanical and engineering progress
the painful spectacle of ; crowd of
"grimy, perspiring coal heavers labor
iously passing " baskets of coal from
lighter and coal barge to a, steamer
which Is taking In her bunkers seems
rather a survival of the barbarous ages
than an ordinary feature of the con
duct of British shipping. Nor is It
iv th -coal slaves" who suffer. The
ship must sail at her specified time
,and thus It often happens wjth pres
ent tedious methods that coal Is shut
out. and the , vessel sails minus the 100
or 100 ton which she baa room for
The removal of these very serious dis
abilities has long engaged the attention
of Inventors, but" tip U the present with
out tanKlbte 5 or satisfactory results.
There Is, however, every prospect of
this difficult problem being satisfac
torily solved by Messrs. R. and J . Mor
w. the well known firm of launch and
,fct K-.nwa of UverDooL Their
J - - e
natent takes the form of a self dls
charging barge of vessel, by which it
i. riaJmPd a. savin of 50 per cent over
listing appliances is effected.
i Practically the self -discharger is an
adoption of the bucket-elevator prin
' clple. "The Vessel fitted with it is fitted
with a metal road, along which the con
veyor runa,'and to which, of course,
the coal Is superincumbent The con
veyor, discarding technical language.
takes the for mof a belt composed of
two parallel chains, connected at Inter
vals by steel rods, crossing the con
veyor road at right angles. When set
In motion the conveyor carries the coal
to the foot' of a camel plate, and the
"coal is transferred to a series of skips
or buckets, each capable' of holding 100
pounds. These buckets move in a ver
tical trunk, and discharge their coal
at the highest point of the ascent into
a coal schute, which would In actual
practice lead to a bunker hatch. For
the trials some 60 or 60 tons' of coal
were stored in a huge bin. representing
the hold of a coal-laden vessel, the
motive power to drive conveyor and
elevator being suplled from an adjacent
crane. As soon as the steam was turn
ed on the conveyor began to transport
coal to the elevator, and each bucket
picked up Ita load, ascended the trunk,
and discharge it down the scute.
Though exact means of measuring
the work done was not available, the
tonsessus'of opinion among the experts
present was that in 10 minutes at least
20 tons of coal was transferred from
the bin. There was not the slightest
Rimming, thanks to the camel late,
and the big lumps were handled and
bucketed, with the greatest ease. In
'fact the coal, operated upon waa above
the average size, and therefore the
success of the trial was all the more
" pronounced. .Such an Invention as this
promises to revolutionize the coaling
of steamers where that operation is
performed from lighters or barges
along side. The height of the trunk
is adjustable so that It can be adopted
to ships of various heights of side. Nor
are the possibilities of this admirable
Invention limited to coaling. For dls
charging cargoes of ore or gravel It Is
equally applicable, and the shipping
' public can confidently look to important
