I ii i Kilpatnck Says He Has New Invention to Harness Power Generated in " the Elements f1 Has Elbert Craig Kilpatrick. aged San Francisco school teacher and . electrical engineer, conceived a free energy generator similar to Garabed, the new Invention that promises to revolutionize science and win the war for the United States? ,. Kilpatrick yesterday made public the details of his invention through - Hiram V. Johnson Jr., his attorney, after reading dispatches from Wash ington, D. C, that Congress has in terested Itself in a. device perfected by Garabed Giragossian, a Boston engineer. Attorney Johnson has tele, graphed Congressman - Denver S Church, reviewing Kllpatrick's claims and asking him, to conduct an In vestigation to see it there is any infringement on his ideas. Congress man Church is one of the Congres sional committee Investigating Gara bed. . Kilpatrick displayed' some uneasi-' n ess over the Washington dispatches, saying that he had demonstrated his own invention before navy officials at Mare Island more than a month . ago. The Invention was then In dorsed by Lieutenant Commander ' George C. Sweet of the navy, he said, ,. and a request was made of Kilpatrick that he leave his plans and other data with the navy officials. ; PATENT OFFICE SCOFFS. This he refused to do because the patent office's electrical experts had scoffed at his theories and refused to issue him a patent last August until a year's time had elapsed and ' he would demonstrate his perfected in vention to their satisfaction. This extension of time by the patent of fice, Kilpatrick and Attorney John son think, , will safeguard any pri ority of Ideas that he can prove. Kilpatrick said, however, that he saw a model of his invention In a ..' fMlssion street electrical shop after navy officials. Kilpatrick describes his Invention as an original compound motor that i utilizes the positive and negative currents of electricity. According to Kilpatrick, his motor is capable of developing fifty-six times as much power, as any other motor In existence. HUNS ON OWN POWER. Once . started with a small storage s battery, he declares, the motor runs indefinitely on its own power. "In this respect It does more than perpetual motion," Kilpatrick said. Kilpatrick, who is 68 years old, lives at 2501 Twenty-sixth street Discussing his invention yesterday, he said that tests conducted - had exceeded all his original hopes for the invention. WHAT TESTS SHOW. , On paper he figured it would pro duce eight times as much power as any other motor. The tests actually show that It produces fifty-six times as much power as any known machine. . No fuel, Kilpatrick says, Is necessary. Outside force starts it mov-' ing, but if, let-alone it will run until it racks itself to pieces on its own power. The inventor claims that It will revolutionize all mechanical locomotion. The developments it permits in aircraft, steamship, railway and automobile engines stagers the imagination. It forecasts a new era in the world of power. All of this is possible by the utili-' zatlon of the negative current which has formerly been grounded or wasted in all motors so far produced, he says. The harnessing of this wasted force is the secret of Kllpatrick's invention. The inspiration -for the motlor which he now believes he has realized came to Kilpatrick when he was twenty-two years old. He 'has labored on the idea ever since and has expended over $20,000 on models, plans, tools and experiments. He la now sixty-six years old. Kilpatrick was backed financially In his undertaking by Arthur Arlett, , president of the State Board of Harbor Commissioners; JVnjamin Mc-Dougall. architect, and Allen Moyer, real estate dealer. All Attest the success of the engine. Three years ago Kilpatrick approached Moyer who laughed at the idea but advanced money. Moyer backed Kilpatrick through many failures. Finally he reached his financial limit, and he and Kilpatrick interested Arlett and McDougall, thi three putting up $1,200 for a last attempt. Three months ago Moyer was aroused by Kllpatrick's pounding at his door with the statement, "It works, it works." They proceeded at 1 o'clock in the morning to Kllpatrick's laboratory and saw the investor's "dream motor" actually running on power furnished by its own action. PEACE FORCED BY VI CTORY I S URGED BY T.R. GARABED' FATE UPTOUI Inventor Gets Authority Through Congress to Demonstrate His Wonder Motive Power. BY JOHN C' MELLETT. (International Nws Service Staff uorresponaent.; WASHINGTON, October 5. "Gar abed," the fuelless engine that t is designed to revolutionize war and make peaceful pursuits more profit able than ever in the history of the world, to-night awaits the recogni tion of Tresident Wilson. His signa ture on a bill passed by the Senate and House will legally allow a demon titration by Garabed T. K. Glragos eian of his "free energy -generator" before a commission of reputable scientists. ' The inventor is an Armenian from Boston. Representative Robert Crosser of Cleveland telephoned Giragosslan that the bill had passed. "It is up to you now," said Crosser, "to make good your assertions." "Mr. Crosser, I shall do more. The "Garabed" will do me things than I have ever claimed for It. This declaration Giragosslan amplf- ned when asked for an interview. luven i, he said, "cannot . say definitely how much the "Garabed" will do. It is not I, or the machine that will accomplish results. It is natures limitless source of energy. Energy, you must know, is every-thing. It is everywhere in nature, "Garabed" e will simply transform and harness a supply of this energy, making It do what man will want done. "Therefore, I say that nature will do more through "Garabed" than I have ever claimed it would." Giragossian has been working on it for years, he said, and did not dream of war purposes when he began experimenting. "We have to imagine a working engine," he eald, "the motive power of which Is not seam but something else which can De obtained freely. "The 'Garabed'' being free from boiler and furnaces there will be no more explosions, no more victims, no more smoke, no more danger and ho more tollers to produce energy. "The fire and lights of cities and farms will be supplied by electricity through free energy. Coal stoves, oil heaters, furnaces ana fireplaces, gas lights, lamp and chandeliers will for ever be expelled from houses." Glrajrosslan declared he had oper ated his device, a ten horsepower generator, for ten nours witnout In terruption with no fuel or other source of energy now used. Wsr Takes Teacher. PORTERVILLE, October 5. So many of the young men of the country are going to war that the Por-tervllle Board of Education Is having a difficult time to secure a manual training teacher. NILES (Ohio), ' October 5. "We could not keep out of world politics If we would. That which affects the world affects us. The Monroe doc-trtlne Is becoming a more serious limitation upon Euopean action than ever before." This was the'declaratlon of former President William H. Taft in the principal address here .to-day at the dedication of the big marble memorial building and monument erected to the memory of the late President Lwilllam McKlnley, who was born in this town. Miss Helen McKlnley, sister of the martyred President, unveiled the twelve-foot statue of President William McKlnley which ia set in the court, of the memorial building.

President Wilson, as the central figure in , the great war, was the topic of an address by Surveyor of Customs John S. Irby last evening before the Iroquois Club. Irby recounted personal phases of the President's activities, told how the President prepared his great war messages, of his attitude towara questions, great and small, which he was called upon daily to meet, and of the general situation -at the capital in the war. Irby touched upon some of the inventions for the war which were under consideration, Including CalU fornla's adaption of the Catallna glass bottom boats for discovering . me presence of submarines. He told also of a reported instrument for detecting the radio messages into Berlin.

In effect the report is expected to repeat what Heflin has said many times; that he has no direct evidence of wrongdoing against any member of. Congress and add that there Is nothing to investigate. - The Alabama member tnM committee, in answer to questions, that he never knew of any member obtaining- German money, denied that, he ever said he had heard ru-tnors that they had gotten it, and said that his suspicions against members were aroused by the character of the proposals they introduced in Congress.

Theodore Roosevelt, speaking here to-night at fc "National Service" mass meeting under the auspices of the Mayoris Committee on National Defense, declared the only peace which ; will make the-world safe for democracy, must be based upon the complete overthrow of Germany and the dissolution of Austria and Turkey. Included in the programme he outlined were a free Arabia and Armenia, Poland and Lithuania, with an independent Czech commonwealth, and a Jugo-slay 6tate. "Continually we hear rumors of peace," ho said. "I think the circulation of such rumors is injurious to America and to the cause of decency and democracy. We should make it clearly understood that the conduct of Germany has been such that we regard as enemies of mankind all people who would strive to bring about a peace based upon treating Germany. Austria and Tur key on the one hand, and the allies on the other, as standing on a foot ing of'equallty. PEACE BY VICTORY. "The only peace that will make the world safe for democracy is peace based upon the complete over throw of Germany and the dissolu tion of Austria and Turkey. "Unless we have used the phrase in a hypocritical and inHlncere man ner, this is the way to make the world safe for" democracy and the only way, and this means that th only peace we can accept is the peace of overwhelming victory. "Turkey's conduct toward the Ar menian and Syrian Christians ha been such as to make It evident that the Turk must not only be driven out of Europe, but the empire de stroyed. BOOTY FOR ALLIES. "As for Belgium, she Is not only entitled to restoration, but to the heaviest kind of indemnity. Let France have Alsace-Lorraine; let Poland Include the whole Baltic coast to which she is entitled. Let the English and the Japanese keep the colonies they have won. "As for the United States, we wish nothing except to have, it clearly understood that the Monroe Doctrine Is to be upheld in the future as in the past South of the equator this doctrine can be left to Brazil. Argen Una and Chile, who are strong enough to maintain it and whom we will aid In maintaining it only when they so desire.- "Peace should come along the lines thus roughly Indicated. Then do whatever treaties and agreements run do to make the peace perma nent and minimise the chances of war In the future. But avoid folly and hypocrisy and do not make be lieve that any paper scheme will brins- the ratllenlum or abolish all chances of future war. Referring to the Bolo Pasha revela tions, he declared that statements already published disclosed tht "the German ambassador for the last two years prior to the breaking of dlplo matlo relations was engaged in a campaign Id' this country to Influence public opinion tnrougn tne press. through pacifist organizations and similar bodies. How large the cor motion fund that was spent in Amer. ica was. we do not yet know, But it was certainly very large." O'C. M. & Co.

Reserve Major David P. Barrows, formerly dean of the faculties at the University of California and commissioned a major in the officers' reserve corps, made a short farewell call at t lie Presidio before setting sail for Manila, He said that Reserve Captain Thomas A. Driscoll, wealthy San Matean, famed for his lawn tennis and polo skill, had secured transfer from the machine gun battalion Barrows commanded while at American Lake and that he now is commanding a company of the 863d Infantry, National Army. JTrlscoll liked the machine gun work, but his friend Henry Brecken-ridge is major in the 363d, and when Reggie McNally arrived . to become lieutenant colonel of that regiment, they had little trouble about pulling Driscoll over to - them," explained Major Barrows. As captain of O troop in the squadron of the First Cavalry, commanded during the Panama Pacific Exposition by "Jimmy" Harbord, now brigadier general and chief of staff for General Pershing, Captain McNally became widely, known here and down the Peninsula. He played on the First Cavalry's team . all through the Exposition's polo tournament of seven weeks and he rode two winners during the thoroughbred racing. .

The last Important measure on the programme before adjournment of Congress to-morrow the administration soldiers' and sailors' Insurance measurewas made ready for President Wilson's signature to-night with the adoption by the Senate of the conference report already approved by the House. On the so-called Smoot .amendment, increasing to $25 monthly the pension allowances of widows , erf Civil and Spanish War veterans, the conferees limited its operation to widows of officers and enlisted men of those wars killed In line "of duty or who died subsequently from injuries received in line of duty. . The slightly reduced disability and family allowances provided : by the Senate were retained by the con- ferees. Since Congress convened irt Its extraordinary war session last April and up to to-day it has placed at the disposal of the administration $17,000,000,000 and has authorized contracts for almost $2,600,000,000 more. , Most of the money was for war purposes, including $7,000,000,000 for loans to the allies. X The appropriations committees, through their chairmen, .Senator Martin and Representative Fitzgerald, made the figures public to-day, coupling with them the declaration that Congress had done its work in furnishing the- money for the war very effectively.
