Facts About the Canal
Time required to go through the ca

Freight will be charged $1.20 a ton;
passengers are free.
American coastwise ships may pass
through free of all charges.
The canal will save 8000 miles be
tween New York and San Francisco.
New York Is brought 5000 miles
nearer to Valparaiso and the west
coast of South America. " "
Our Atlantic seaports are 4000 miles
nearer Australia.- i
The distance to the -Philippine is
lands is not materiall reduced.
Bulk products like wheats lumber,
minerals, wool, hides and wines will
get lower freight rates through the

A Unique Craft
A steamship of uncommon interest
was launched at Sunderland. She is
to be employed In the transportation
of oil, and her power will be derived
rrom mat which she carries. At the
launching ceremony the vessel was
christened theJ Teutonian. The Teu-
tonian, which Is , 289 feet in length,
with a breadth of'over.50 feet Is, di
vided Into, 14 compartments, and is
provided with two cofferdams, to: en-
aoie enree graaes or oh to be carried.
This boat will be used to convey
"Sheir fuel oil to the United King
dom from , the East The tanks are
of the regulation size, and comply in
every respent with the Suez Canal
requirements. The engines and boil
ers have been built by Messrs. Dick
inson, the former, being, the latest,
triple-expansion type, and a speed of
11 knots an hour can be maintained
when" the vessel lawfully loaded. The
boilers are fitted for burning oil fuel.
All the latest auxiliary machinery has
been installed, and the cargo weight is
750 tons, which can be discharged at
the rate of 500 tons per hour. In the
accommodation for both officers and
men the newest ideas have been in
corporated. ...
