Runs On Other
Oceanic Liner Steaming to Hono
lulu With Half of Its
Illades Idle. .
(Sari Francisco Chronicle,- Jure 30)
I Along the Water Front ,
The advantage of .a vessel propel
led by two propellers 'ovor tl at -of
the single type again has been dem
onstrated. The Oceanic stecmship
Sierra, Captain. H. C. Houjlette,
which sailed Ivom Honolulu on Tues
day is now steaming to the island
port with one-half of the prorulsion
power out of commission. This Vo
calise the starbanlo prpuller broke,
off Thursday afternoon when the ves
sel was about 800 miles frori San
The only effect on the vessel was
that the speed was reduced from
in Ms knots to about, thirteen. In a
wireless to the officials of the Oce
anic line here Captain Houdlctte said
ho would proceed right on to Hono
lulu und tlio only rsult of tin- inci
dent would be that he would iie de
cayed about half a day.
A SIMILAR HAPPENING.
Tliis is the second time an accident
of this character has involved one of
the Oceanic vessels. Two yea s ago
the Sonoma lost a propcllor ;i few
days after leaving .Sydney. Captain
I J. II. Trask calmly steamed ahead
for Honolulu and this port with his
remaining wheel nnd was but two
days late when ho got here.
If either of these' ships had been
propelled by, a single propeller it
would have been nccoesary to send
out the usual "SOS" no was neces
sary' when one .of the' Matson ships
lost a wheel a few years ago. In
that case another liner of the same
company was not far away and aid
ws granted nd a tow line passed
to the crippled ship in a few hours
The Oceanic officials here are not
worried in the least and expect the
Sierra to steam through to Honolulu
is even greater to coastwise vessels, which would
more quickly drift against the rocks, than it is
to vessels breaking down in mid-ocean.

Ring a Bell In a Vacuum and You Can
not Hear the 8ound.
The value of air as a noise nnd
sound medium enn readily be ascer
tained by suspending n bell from a
silk strand through the neck of n largo
bottle from wrtlch the air has been
pumped. By pulling on the silk the
tongue can be seen to strike the sides
of the bell, but no sound is heard. A
bell suspended by a metal rod and
rung would be nudlble. tho sound
waves being cnrrled to tho outside of
tho bottlo by the inetul rod. An ex
periment of this kind, using an Iron
vessel as a substitute for the glass bot
tle, would bo found not nearly so sat
isfactory, plough tho bell bo suspend
ed from silk as in tho former Instance,
owing almost entirely to the fact that
Iron Is more porous than glass, conse
quently containing some air, which
would convey an almost Imperceptible
Sound to the outside.
There Is suld to exist In Scotland a
stone so opaque as to render Inaudible
