Building In Record Time. In the e instruction of tin-se ships ? he Newport News Shipbuilding & Dry Dort Company has set a new pace for American shipyards in buhl mg this class of steamship. Tin keel fof the City of Montgomery ??; laid down on September I, 1 :??!?, and she will be (CSWpasted about June 1 The keel for the City of St. Umfa was laid down on October 1 and she will be commissioned about July l. Although sl glitlv smaller than sonic of the reeeetf now plying in that ser vice, the City of Montgomery and CttJ o; St. Louis are to be the best equip? ped and handsomest steamers engag? ed in the coastwise traffic on the At lantlc coast. Each is to be eq.ui]>t>er' with wiraieaa telegraphy, submarine bells, safety signals and all of the ether rn'idern devices for the safety of 'life at sea. Th*| also will have a com? plete system of watertight compart n.ents, with watertight doors that <an be closed In a second's time, that will make them well nigh unsinkable High and Wide Decks. Great wide decks, near'y fifty feet across from rail to rail, with din'ng saloons arranged forward allowing the dmers an unobstructed view of the ocean, sheltered decks and sun i.eeks r sing forty feet above the sur? face of the ocean, form only a few f.f the attractions of the City of Montgomery and City of St Ixiuis. A b ngth of ::X7 feet overall and a tot? nage of about r,,iMNi gross will make these twin steamers the very essence Of comfort and safety bi t ween the Northern and Southern iKirts. One of the most interesting f?-ature of the construction of the steamers has been the attention jiaid to the demands of varying climatic changes between New York and Sivannah. Thus, travelers leaving New Y.>rk In ihe face of a northeast hli/zard will lind comfortable, steam-heated rooms, warm lounging rooms, music rooms ; nd easy c-orners that make the ves? sels seem like hotels. As soon a* the climate changes occurs south of Cap*; Hatteras, the ventilation and cooling .?PIMtrattis on Ixiard the ships will aid the paaaaaaaaaa in bearing comfortably the i>a,lm> air of the Southland In the same manner will those coming from the South be assisted gently in aha change from warmth in the rhfl I<t atmosphere of 11 ? ? - NdmIi' ui win tor.
