English Plan to Build and Run Ocean
Steam Life Boats.
London, Jan. 23. Ono of the most
recent projects for tho relief of suf
fering and tho protection of property
is to build and run ocean steam life
boats. This Is Uio plan of a well
known English shipbuilder, and la
known as the "International Blua
Cross Ocean life' and Salvago Sorv
Ice." It Is intended that it should
take tho placo at sea which tho Rod
Cross occupies In the army.
At presont a ship wrecked at scr
depends on a chance meeting for th(
rescue of lives. Tho rescuing vessa
is awarded by the admiralty courta
a certain part of the valuo of tho
property saved, tho amount awarded
being known ns salvage. Under the
"Blue Cross" plan a certain number
of especially designed boats are to
patrol the Boas over fixed and known
routes, following tho main ocean
highways. Shold a vessel bo in dis
tress, the captain, by looking at his
schedule, could tell exactly when a
patrol boat would be due at the near
est point, and plan accordingly with
some eye to business, despatch, and
tho comfort of thoso on board. Tho
rate of salvage would be fixed, and
tho officer would know exactly what
the rescue would cost tho owners.
Tho projector believes that if seamen
knew that on a given boat ono of the
lifeboats would bo within sight of a
certain fixed latitude nnd longtltudo,
many crippled ships and their crews
would be saved nnd accounted for,
who, as things aro now, have to
abandon their Hhlps, Tho means of
providing this patrol sorvlce should
be furnished by tho nations served,
In proportion to Die tonnage of their
shipping. All salvage would go to
government account and he credited
to their servico.
