Development of Carrying Capacity of
Ocean-Going Vessels.
White Star Olympic to Make Maiden
Voyage to United States
Next' June.
W ritten for The Stir and the Chicago Record
The managers of the White Star steam
ship line have announced that the Olym-'
pic, the leviathan which has been build
ing at Belfast for four years and Is the
largest vessel that was ever floated, will
sail oh her maiden Voyage to the United
States the 14th of June, and will be fol
lowed, a few months later, by her sis
ter ship, the Titanic, which is of similar
size and carrying capacity, it was sup
posed <by laymen that the limit had been
reached when the keels of these monsters
had been laid, but now comes the Ham
burg-American Company with the an
nounced that the Vulcan shipyard at
Stettin has laid the keel of a ship for
that company to be called the Europa,
which is twenty-one feet longer, four
feet wider, has a larger tonnage by 5,000
ton*, horsepower greater by 10,00o than
the Olympic and Titanic and will be cap
able of carrying 1,000 passengers more
than either of them or anything that
The expansion of the steamship, both of
the mercantile marine and of the lighting
class, is as remarkable as the develop
ment of any other science or trade, and
the rivalry for the supremacy of the
sea between the merchant lines is as
keen as between the navies of the great
powers, notwithstanding the fact that the
government of the United States is about
to prosecute them for being too friendly.
Trust Phase Considered. I
It requires a moral microscope of
greater power than sensible men can
procure to discover where the harm to
mankind lies in a combination between
the steamship companies which the gov
ernment trust busters are trying to de
The rates for freight and passengers
across the Atlantic both waya of all
classes arc lower and the accommoda
tions are better under the present pool- !
Ing arrangements than they ever were
before, and the Attorney Oeneral of the
United States will not improve them by
trying to dissolve the pool. If he should
succeed in doing so he would simply
demoralise the traffic.
The third-class passengers, who are
chiefly immigrants, have accommodations
and food equal to those furnished flrst
elass passengers within the life of the
present generation, and the modern lux
uries, comforts and conveniences which
have made an ocean voyage' a pleasure
instead of a hardship do not cost any
more, or so much, as the old-fashioned l
comfortless ships used to furnish. Of
course, a passenger may pay a thou
sand dollars or twenty-five hundred dol
lars, just as he pleases, according to the
size and location of his stateroom, but
for $90 a first-class passenger can cross
the Atlantic In the finest ship that was I
ever built and have every advantage 1
that the man who pays a thousand dol
lars enjoys, except In the site and loca
tion of the cabin In which he sleeps. j
The steerage passenger can cross for
$30 and the second-class passenger for
$60. and the latter has accommodations,
food and conveniences which would have
been highly appreciated by first-class
passengers on the finest of ships only a
few years ago.
Cause of Dread Rejnoved.
Furthermore, the application of science
and ingenuity to the construction of pas
senger vessels has removed any cause
for dread regarding danger or discom
fort in the voyage, and in the new
steamer which the Hamburg-American
Company is constructing an entirely new
device will be adopted to prevent the
rolling of the hull as it passes through
the troughs of the sea in stormy
This device, invented by Herr Frahm
of Hamburg, consists of a row of enor
mous tanks shaped like the letter "U," ex
tending from port to starboard the en
tire length of the hold. The water in
these tanks rises and falls as the ship
rolls, counteracting the motion of the ves
sel, which Is almost entirely neutralized.
Experiments made with the steamers
Jiranga and Corcovada. sailing between
Hamburg and the Argentine Republic for
two years, have demonstrated the effective
ness of the Invention. Their log books
show that the average maximum radius
described by these vessels in rolling be
fore the tanks were placed in their hulls
was eleven degrees on each beam. Since
the tanks were Introduced the maximum
has been reduced to two degrees, and it
is asserted that even when running in
the trough of the sea the Corcovada and
the Jiranga have been so steady that
the rolling was scarcely perceptible. I
The effectiveness of this device is said
to be much greater than the bilge keel
or any other that was ever tried, and
the Hamburg-American Company has
determined to introduce it in the con
struction of the Europa. |
Use of Petroleum as Puel.
Another interesting and even more im
portant innovation in marine architecture
will be made upon a vessel of 8.000 tons
now being constructed by the Blohm &
Voss Shipbuilding Company at Hamburg
for the Hamburg-American line. It will
be the substitution of explosive engines
for steam engines and the use of petro
leum instead of coal for fuel. While
neither of these ideas is now, as the
use of oil and explosive engines is com
mon upon small boats and yachts, they
have never been tried In the development
of great power In largo ships for the
transportation of freight and passengers.
Engineers predict that the new steamer
in which these methods are to be intro
duced will mark an epoch in marine con
struction. There will be no boilers; there
will be no steam, no chimneys, and the
economy in passenger and cargo space
will amount to an increase of 30 per I
cent in the capacity of a vessel of 8,000 r
tone. j
The use of oil and explosive engines in
small und swift boats is now so common
that it attracts no comment, but steam
ship companies and shipbuilders have
hesitated to apply the system to ships re
quiring more than 1,000 horsepower until I
now. The Hamburg-American Company
is the flrsv to show its confidence and is
undertaking a demonstration that will
cost more than a million dollars. |
Fifteen Under Construction. !
Including the Europa, the Hamburg
American 'Company has fifteen new ves
sels under construction, a total of 167,100
tons. This will bring the total tonnage
of the company up to 1,072,452 tons, which
is 103,020 tons more than all of the Amer
ican ships engaged in the foreign trade I
combined. h
The fifteen new vessels under construc
tion consist of the Europa of 60,000 tons,
four freighters of 1&000 tons each, two
of which have already been launched, the
other two will be launched within a few
weeks; five passenger steamers of 8.000
tons each, four freight and ?passenger
steamers for the West India service of
5,200 tons each, and one steamer of 1,100
tons for service on the Rhine and Elbe
rivers. % |
It was only ten years ago that the
Deutschland came oot of the Vulcan
works at Hamburg to astonish the world
for speed and luxury. The German Em
peror presided over-the ceremonies when
she was launched, and Count von Bulow,
imperial chancellor, christened her. She I

was not only the largest and the grand
est and the fastest ocean steamer that
was ever floated, but It was confidently
believed that she represented the highest
type of marine engineering that could
possibly be produced. Yet within ten
years the same company lays the keel
or a vessel so large that the mighty
Deutschland could float in her hull as In
a basin without her funnels being seen
from the outside.
The Europa will be 220 feet longer than
the Deutschland, almost the length of a
city block, and the upper deck of the new
steamer will reach nearly as high as the
topmasts of the Ueutschland. The bridge
of the new steamer, where the naviga
tor will stand, will be 77 feet above the
Water when she is loaded to her full ca
pacity, and her flag will float 208 feet
above the level of the water. Her beam
is 96 feet, which makes her as wide as
Broadway at its widest point, and her
nine decks above the water line will bring
her up to the average height of the cor
nices of the mercantile establishments be
tween the City Hall Park and Madison
Square, New York city. She will be a
nine-story traveling hotel. The lowest
promenade deck will be four stories above
the level of the sea.
She will have cabins for 4,250 passen
gers, more than the combined capacity
of the Waldorf, the Manhattan, the Bcf
mOnt and the Astor, the four largest
hotels in the city of New York.
Weight of Material Used.
The Europa Will have a displacement of
70,000 tons?that is, she will displace that
amount of water when she is launched
into the sea, and the material used In
her construction will weigh 140,000,000
pounds, without ? counting furniture, fix
tures, china, silver, glass, bedding and
other loose articles about the ship, or
the weight of her passengers. Four thou
sand passengers at an average of 160
pounds each will be 600,000 pounds ad
It is estimated that if the material used
in her construction were loaded upon the
largest American freight cars they would
maKe a train 44 miles long, which is the
entire length of the Panama canal.
Two million feet of Oregon fir have
been purchased to be used for the decks
alone. For several months this lumber
has been seasoning in the open air near
Portland. Ore., before being shipped on
sailing vessels to Hamburg. The gieat-'
est care has been tak*n in its selection
and every board has clear vertical grain.
The Europa will be 160 feet longer than
the Capitol at Washington; she will be
326 feet longer than the Washington
Monument is high, and if set up on her
stern her bow would reach higher than
the lantern on the tower of the Metropoli
tan Insurance building in New York,
which is the tallest object created by
human hands.
The Europa will be the most expensive
boat ever "built, the contract cost being
approximately *7.500,000. The Mauretania
cost $1,000,000; the Lusitania, which is
not so expensvely decorated or furnished.
cost 96,640,000, or $360,000 less than her
sister ship The Europa will not be
built for show nor for speed, but for
comfort and suooth sailing. The Maure
tania can make twenty-six knots an hour,
which is about thirty miles an hour-the
speed of an ordinary express train on our
railroads. The Olympic of the White
Star line and the Europa will make about
twenty or twenty-one knots.

Old Man, Slipping, Is Instantly

tures Spine.
WILKESBARRE, Pa.. January 'J3
Trying to keep her husband from falling
from a lilgli trestle yesterday. Mrs. Philip
Steiner received injuries which surgeons
declare will cause death, and her hus
band was killed.
Steiner was seventy years old and his
wife is two years younger. The couple
had no money, and after a dispute with
their landlord were removing their goods
from the house they had been occupying.
They were taking away their furniture in
the night to avoid any chance of their be
longings being seized.
I Loaded down, the couple were crossing
a trestle thirty feet high- It was cold
and a heavy frost made the footing dan
gerous. Steiner. was in the lead. Whether
the cold benumbed him or his burden was
so heavy that he became exhausted is not
<known. The man slipped on the frosty
ties and fell. . .... 9
Hangs Thirty Feet in Air.
His wife saw him stumble and then try
to recover himself. At the same time he
tried to hold on to his precious bundle.
She plunged forward desperately and
managed to seise one of his legs as he
shot over one of the rails. At the same
moment he seized one of the ties with one
hand and for a few tense moments hung
on. She exerted all her strength to hold
him. Even when she felt him lose his j
slight hold on the ties and fall she held
on. For a brief period she supported him !
as he swung in the air, and then both
Mrs. Steiner struck with great forcc j
upon her back and for some time was usi- j
conscious. When she regained her senses I
she could barely move and her husband j
was motionless and silent. She failed to
rouse him. for he was dead. She called i
for a long time for help, fainting at times.
Finally aid came.
The woman, with her dead, was taken
to the City Hospital. It was found the
man had been killed by the fall to the
frozen ground. An examination of Mrs.
Steiner caused the surgeons to express
the belief that her spine Is fractured, that
she is injured internally and is in a bad
way from shock.
