\VILLIAM HENRY DANIELS, OF SOUTHSEA, ENGLAND.

TUBE-MOTOR FOR PROPELLING VESSELS.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 338,040, dated March 16, 1886.

Application filed September 25,1885.

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, WVILLIAM HENRY DAN- IELS, a subject of the Queen of England, residing at Southsea, England, have invented a new and useful Improved Tube-Motor for Propelling Vessels, of which the following is a specification.

This invention will be best understood by reference to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure l is a plan of the shaft and tubemotor, and Fig. 2 an elevation of the same.

A is a shaft projecting from the bow, stern, or other suitable partof the vessel, and caused to revolve by steam or other suitable power.

B are tubes (of which there may be any desired number,from one upward) secured upon the shaft A, revolving with it. The tubes B, of which two are shown in the drawings, are placed at an angle to the axis of the shaftsay, for example, at an angle of forty-five degreest-heir ends being preferably cut so as to lie at right angles with the axis of the shaft.

The shaft revolves, carrying the tubes round with it, and the Water entering at one end of the tube is forced out at the other end.

Having now particularly described and ascertained the nature of my said invention and Serial No. 178.185. (No model.)

in what manner the same is to be performed, I declare that what I claim is- 1. A propeller-wheel having straight openended cylinders arranged about its hub and inclined thereto, as and for the purpose set forth.

2. A propeller-wheel consisting of a hub suitably bored to receive a shaft, and provided with two tubes, B B, located on opposite sides ofthe hub, inclined in opposite direc tions thereto and having their ends open, the longitudinal axis of the two tubes being at right angles to each other, as set forth.

3. A propeller-wheel having straight openended cylinders arranged about its hub at an inclination thereto, the two ends of each cylinder being cut off in planes parallel to each other and at right angles to the axis of the hub, as set forth.

In testimony whereof Ihave hereunto set my hand in the presence of the two subscribing witnesses.
