In all new countiics or districts
there is at first hardly any compe
tition in many of the lines of busi
ness but us thingb settle down and it
is seen what is" needed by the conn
try others begin in those lines.
In almost all oases it causes a
little irritation, at first, to find that
some one else wishes to share the
profits of a trade hitherto carried on
by one alone, but, gradually it is
found that competition means an
increase of businessthat both
parties, old and new, gain by it, as,
the greater the facilities, the more
business will be done.
Sometimes, however, either one of
the two wishes to oust the other
entirely and thus obtain a monopoly
of the business. Now, unless a
monopoly is in the hands of the
Government, and thus under the
control of the people generally, it
has been found to be injuiious to
the public and even to the mono
polist. The best condition that a country,
an industry, a business, or a politi
cal party, can be in, is to have a
strong opposition. "Competition is
the life of trade."

Tun coinage question is fctlll agitating
the minds of the business men of the

Tub example of England is fre

The Navtical Magazine remarks
that we know, or should have learnt
from the vast experience of the last
ten or twenty years an experience,
pei haps, as gloomy and as unsatis
factory as it has been rash that the
majority .of .''cargo steamers," as at
present constructed and sent to sea,
have alieady long since reached
the limit of safety in loading, if,
indeed, many of them have not got
much beyond it. If this,bp not so,
how arc we to account for the great
number of such vessels which an
nually disappear? There is, surely,
unmistakable evidence to prove that
something is wrong somewhere, for
many of them are comparatively new
ships. After two long centuries of
experience of all kinds of ships, and
over all - seas, a vanished school of
able and sagacious seamen laid it
down that a good ship fairly loaded:
and ably comriuuided, will li"e in
any storm excepting, perhaps cyc
lones and hurricanes, and the acci
dents which they engender; she
positively cannot possibly sink, but
is as certain to ride over those great
rolling mountains of seething water
as a well-built church is of standing
on its foundation. It is a great mis
take to suppose, as some shipbuilders
really do, that because a ship is big
no heavy seas will ever run on
board ; in consequence of this
fallacy, they take all manner of
liberties in designs and construction.
It is dillicult to believe there are
such opinions in such quarters, yet
it is so, notwithstanding. There is,
doubtleS, less science imported into
shipbuilding now than in former
times, when iron for such work was
a novelty, and when the worthy
blacksmith, though occupying an
indisputable position, played only
second fiddle in the symphony but
the merest wetter suotllcl under
stand that the long, low steamers
which are now turned out of our
building yards, are the wettest, and
in too ninny oases, the most dan
gerous ships which ever put to sea.
A great ocean wave, howevor high
or fasl it may run, will' lift up,
bodily, any smail ship or boat; but
not so aome 100-fooior ; and, as a
matter of course, if it cannot lift,
must run over some part of her.
Allowing such a wave to run at 35
miles an hour, and a great part of
its crest, suy 25 tons of water, to
overwhelm her decks, we have nt
once ft force equal to the charge of a
locomotive against everything in the
shape of an obstruction to its course,
Yet it is common to see such ships
putting to sen with all kinds of twin-
nerv and feeble fittings such
obtained in high-sided ships of fifty
years bnck, feeble, it should be said,
in rotation to the amount of free
board, or had weather to he encoun

The use of electricity as u motor
is developing, though not very ra
pidly. It appears from a lecture by
Professor. Ayi Ion, delivered at the
Koyal Institution on 15th Match,
that on the Portrush Railway to the
Giant's Causeway, in Ireland, n
tramcar diiven by electricity iuiis
steadily at 10 miles an hours, "anil
but that the speed is limited by Act
of Parliament, could easily do 25
miles. "Wo took 0 tons the other
day," writes the chairman, "up an
incline of 1 in 15." A heavy tramcar
has been tried on the tramway to
Acton, and worked admirably, draw
ing an omnibus holding 40 people,
at six miles an hour, for an outlay
of 0s. 8d. a day, against 28s. re
quired for the necessary horse
power. Tnis tramcar is driven by
Iaiirc aceumulntois placed under
the scat, as is also an electric launch,
which now does 15 miles an hour,
with tide, upon the Thames. Pro
fessor Ayi ton also shows an electric
tricycle which runs 8 miles in the
hour, with "an ordinary driver's,
weight, and can run for two hom;s
without ' being recharged. The ac
cumulator is being rapidly improved,
and the practical point now is to
secure an. ultimate chaiging force
which shall be cheap. This must be
a natural rush of water, and will be
found at last either in some tidal
river like the Severn, or in the tide
itself. In .Canton Vaud, a heavy
waterfall is to bo utilised, so as to
distribute light at ii cheap ' rate
throughout the Canton. If we could
once use the tide, it would be pos
sible even now to distribute motive
force stored in accumulators at a
price with which no other motor
could coinpnre. Spectator.
