Excerpt from The Wreck of the Titan: Or Futility

From her lofty bridge ran hidden telegraph lines to the bow, stern engine-room, crow's-nest on the foremast, and to all parts of the ship where work was done, each wire terminating in a marked dial with a movable indicator, containing in its scope every order and answer required in handling the massive hulk, either at the dock or at sea - which eliminated, to a great extent, the hoarse, nerve-racking shouts of officers and sailors.

About the Author:

Morgan Robertson was an American writer best known for his novel Futility, or The Wreck of the Titan, a prescient novel published in 1898 about the catastrophic sinking of an unsinkable ocean liner, eerily similar to the sinking of the Titanic fourteen years later. Robertson also penned The Submarine Destroyer, Three Laws and the Golden Rule, and the short story Beyond the Spectrum, which described a future war between the United States and the Empire of Japan. Morgan Robertson died in 1915.
