According to DeVal, the Carleete (Harry Howe) barrel challenge occurred in 1914.
It was Harry Leat, who hated Houdini's guts and whose writings reveal him as a bigot and a classic Jew hater, who wrote that "Carloete" had invented "the water escape."
Harry Howe enjoyed a relatively brief career as "Carleete" performing magic and his barrel escape. His was one of the hundreds of acts that capitalized on the attention Houdini had brought to escapes.
Houdini approached Howe (who had retired from performing) to challenge him with the barrel escape--but first, to coach him in the escape. As I recall, Houdini actually rented the barrel for the occasion.
