1 . LIVERPOOL, Aug. 27. Much is
M heard today about tl - race for naval
jm supremacy. But tho race is no leas
'V Itoan in tho commorci.il contest, and
M -just now most of the crcnt steiunship
linos are preparing fresh giants for tho
ocean struggle. I lore again the rivalry
M is between the British and the Gef-
H mnns, both being eager to hold the
Bfl blue ribl)on of Atlantic transport the
B9 chief shipping route in all the world.

Hf About tho New Ships.
BJ j The Boston route must be considered
I' first, because the latest ship to take
the water is the Franconia, a new
J' twin-screw vessel of tho Cunard fleet,
which will be the largest liner that has
i ever entered J3oston harbor. It is just
1 seventy 3eara sinco the first Cunardor,
J the Britannia, opened up that routo,

I low tho Mauretania in speed and ton-

, Por the Britannia was 207 feet
long, her tonnage was 1151, her speed
Si knots per hour and her cabins only
accommodated 115 passengers. Now
the Franconia 's length is G25 feet,
her gross tonnage 1S.O00 tons, her dis-
placement 25,000 tons, she can carry
2GO0 passengers,, and her power is twen
ty times as great as that of the Britan
J nia. If, as in the case of tho Britannia.

bigger than their forof.ithors who
made a passage 100 feet wide and seven
miles long to free the old-time steamer.
Over 3000 workmen labored on the
( liner for twelve months up to her
launching at Wallscnd-on-Tyne the
other day, and now an arm- of deco
rators and fitters are at work on her
interior, getting her read' for com
mission early next year. Every new
feature that makes for safety and
steadiness is embodied in her "design,
but though that is so, grace has not
1 been lost, and experts agree that she

( Both are peasants and have had tho
roughest of lives. The veteran dame's
parents wore peasants also. They lived
in the same little village, and the fam
