Somo intorcMting experiments havo
been made on tho visibility of tlio oloo
trio light nt sea by tho governments of
tho United States, Germany and tho
Netherlands. Tho word" visible-" hi tho
report on tlio tests means visiblo on a
dark night with n oleur ntmosphoro.
Tho result of tho experience of tho Gor
niau committeo was that n -whlto light
of ono cnudlo power was visiblo 1.4
miles on a dark, clear night und ono
niilo on a rniuy night.
Tho American tehtn resulted ns fol
lows : In very clear woathor a light of
ono candlo power was plainly visible at
ono nautical milo; ouuof threo candlo
power nt two miles j ono of ten candlo
power was hoen by tho aid of u binoo
ulur ut four miles; ono of 20 candlo
power faintly at llvo miles nnd ono of
tia cnndlo power plainly at llvo miles.
Oa nn exceptionally clear night it white
light of U.3 candlo power was readily
dlhtlnguifilied ut threo inilos; ono of 5.0
candlo power ut four miles and ou'o of
17.a cnndlo power'ut llvo miles.
In tho Dutch experiments tho results
wero almost similar, but u IU caudlo
power light wus plainly visible at llvo
miles. For a green light tho power re
quired was two for ono milo, 15 for two
miles, 51 for threo miles and 100 for
four miles. Tho results of tests with a
red light wero almost identical with
thoso with grcou, but it was conclusive
ly proved that a white light was by far
tho most easily seen. Chicugo Record.
