Book Description Forgotten Books, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Report of Winfield S. Schley, Commander, U. S. Navy, Commanding Greely Relief Expedition of 1884 Experiment indicated that with the use of anthracite coal in the furnaces of these vessels there would be a loss of at least 20 per cent. Of their speed; therefore it was determined to use the best Welsh coal in order to avoid this loss. The use of bituminous coal carried with it a danger of spontaneous combustion, and to reduce this to a minimum a system of steam jets was placed in the holds and the bunkers of the vessels as a security against fire from this cause. The coal transport Y barra was chartered, and brought over from Cardiff tons of Welsh coal of superior quality for the three ships. To supply the expeditionary force in the Arctic regions after leaving St. John s, Newfoundland, a contract was entered into with the agents of the English steamer Loch Garry, Messrs. Sutton Cc., of New York, to transport 500 tons of coal in bags from Cardiff. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
