The new Turblna, of 220 feet In
length and 250 tons displacement, Is in
an advanced stage of construction at
Elswick, England, and hopes are entertained
of her being tried in two months
from the present time. The modifications
found to be desirable after the exhaustive
trials of her predecessors are
considerable. The new vessel has eight
propellers on tour shafts, Instead of the
original Turbinia's three shafts and nine
propellers. Her "going astern" arrangements
nre far in advance of those of
the pioneer boat. The Turbinia is the
fastest vessel in the world, having made
a record of forty miles an hour.
