Whara thn Lusltania has square trunks v.lth hinged covers for the ventilation of the stockholds, the Mauritania has nide-monlhed ordinary cowls, and a£ they are a good deal higher they some what enhance the appearance of the ves sel. Thru, 1 ' again, on closer/, Inspection, the promenade deck and also the boat deck above are Hpon to project over, the shelter deck by about two feet for nearly tliree fourths of the length of the vessel* This, en the two decks on which this arraiiKe jnent libb been carried out, makes an ap preciable addition to the free space for prorriehading on both sides of the vessel. Architectural Decoration Internally, while the arrangement if the various apartments is almost identi cal in the two vessels, there Is an entire contrast in tho architectural treatment and decoration. Speaking broadly, the prevailing aspect of the public rooms in tnt I.usitania Is 0110 of lightness and brightness, the outcome of a liberal use of light-colored enamels and gilt. In the MauretHiila. on the other hand, costly woods In their natural colors are relied upon for decorative effect, producing what might be described as an impres sion of handsomeness and substantiality. Both scehemes of decoration are suc cessful in their own way. and' preference for the one, or the other will differ ac cording to tho taste* or temperament of tho Individual. Some more detailed Idea of the principal rooms In the Maura tnnia may bo given. The dining saloon and upptr saloon are in oak In the Francis I style, beautifully carved. In the main entrance hall and staircase the design Is Italian renais sance, carried out In French walnut, and the same style In the name wood, with the addition of sutlnwood inlay, Is used with fine effect in the smoking room. The library is done in sycamore of a beautiful gray shade, and Is furnished In Louin XVI style, and tho same style is carried out in the lounge and music room In mahogany, with large tapestry panels flanked by duplicate plllnrs of grained marble. The state rooms and regal suites of rooms are variously tn at ed In Adams, Georgian and Sheraton styles. Equal taste and not much less expendi ture, have been bestowed On tho second clasV- accommodations, in which the din ing., saloon is in oak after the Georgian UPPER DINING SALOON, 88. MAU RBTANIA period, the drawing room in maple in a modified Louki XVI style, the smoking room In mahogany and the lounge and entrance hall In polished oak. Many New Featurea -A' new" ! feature In the second-class accommodation Ib a large deck shelter, which mutt add greatly. to the. comfort of the passengers In cold or stormy weather. ¦ In their degree the; third class passengers have also beep llbnr ally dealt with, both In their dining saloon and sleeping quarters, the- lat ter being exceptionally large and airy, whilst the. former Is nicely finished in polished ash. -' ' .". ' '.*'i' v t The- Mauritania Is Indeed a vessel of wonderful contrasts. ,'; While .58>0 passengers will sit-, down to dinner In her brilliantly lit saloons, fifty % cooks will labor heroically in her great kit chens below docks.

' ¦•¦ * The captain,, high up on his bridge, looks down 100 feet to the level of the surging waters. '* A telephone is at his side through which he, may speak his orders to the officers and seamen sta tioned far away on the forecastle, crow's nest, or aftermost bridge. Be low decks an army of 350 stewards will wait upon the comfort of the passen gers. Indeed, every detail In this vast floating town Is carefully studied. The millionaire who pays fr.oo for a regal suite is provided with his own special attendants, hln own private pantry, and a separate entrance to his apart ments, so that h« hay live secluded as In a private mansion on land. In the barber's shop, so perfect is every de tail, one finds a patent hydraulic chair which, adapting Itßelf instantly to every roll of the ship, permits the safe shaving of a passenger even in an At- lantic gale. Children's Playroom The children have not been forgotten. either. A •playroom la provided ,for them with a multitude of toys and rocking chairs galore. If you take a brisk walk three times around the Mini retanla's wide promenado deck you have coveted a mile exactly. Then stepping into a eplendid hall an aluminum tilled passenger lift is waiting to convey you swiftly to the state rooms below, pach of which is fitted with a separata tele phone apparatus. Thus. If you desire it, you mfty ring up the central exchange and be 1 - connected immediately with tho MAGNIFICENT CUNARDER MAURETANIA state room of any other passenger in any part of the ship. The mere pressing of an electric bell In one's cabin operates an elaborate apparatus In the steward's room, by which the attendants on duty see at once,_ even among the multitude of apartments," which passenger Is di siring attendance. The ship is provided with a lounge and library. In style these two rooms are Influenced by a revived appreciation of the Louis Seize period. The lounge is finished In, mahogany, white and gold. The woodwork of the library is of syca more stained to a sliver gray. The fur nishings are in keeping with the styles represented and are of unusual richness. While everything has been done to make the Mauretania ac beautiful as pos sible, her safety in the matter of con struction has been of the first consider ation. Her double bottom Is divided by the ver tical keel and transverse frames Into compartments in which water ballast may be carried. la Well Built In fact the Mauratanla is not only double bottomed, she Is double sided, th« double bottom being carried well up the side of the ship. This Is only one precau tion In the direction of securing unslnk ablllty. The lower deck is completely wftiertight. Below It are the orlop and lower orlop decks, and above are the main, saloon, upper, promenade, and boat dicks. It is necc'ssary. of course, that there should be moans of communication be tween one watertight, compartment and those contiguous, mul <in the Maureta nla ns on bo;ml Ihe Lusltanla, Caro nia and Carmanin. the doors at. or below the water line, are of a special type, and can be dosed automatically from the navigating bridge, and that In a few seconds. In all, the Mauretania will have 175 watertight compartments, so that It may be claimed for her that the is as unslnkable as s ship can be. Tho Mauritania, .: too, complies : with the admiralty requirements as an. armed cruiser, and will be fitted for an arma ment of twelve 6- Inch guns. These guns represent her offensive powers. .With the ¦view of protection, her rudder, and both sets of. steerlng-giar are below the wa ter line, and in the way. of the engine and' boiler-rooms there are side bunkers which, filled with coal, Will be equivalent to an armor belt round the vulnerable portion of the ship. , ¦ .'.. . Safety, - comfort and speed , being as sured to travelers on the Mauretanla, it Is expected that she- will soon rival her sister ship, the Lusltanta, the present un disputed queen. ¦'¦.¦•"'•' THE REGAL SUITE, AS.

STOLEN DREAM BOOK SOLD FOR FIVE CENTS Man Arrested, Charged with Theft of Highly Prized Article, Which la Later Recovered In Sec ond.Hand Store The police department was s'tlrred to great activity yesterday and Detectives Chapman and Home were started In a hurried eearch for un article tho peou- Iliirity of which must havo appealed to some mental ldiosyncrucy in Henry Stark, a cook. Thß stolen article was ,a dream book, the pages of which must havo given, considering the anxiety of tho loser, great comfort and valuable information after restless nights following suppers of ininec pic or other diet supposed to cause startling presentiments and odd visions. The loser of the hook Is Miss Ida Sil ver and she told the police her book had been stolen from a room at Seventh and Orand avenue. Af^r a search among tho second-hand book, stores It was found the book had been sold tor 5 cents at 333 South Main street. The police later ar rested Henry Stark and ho Is in Jail on a charge of larceny. Mrs. M. F.

C. Harper shortly to prepare a message to the city council recommend ing a horizontal increase in all liquor licenses. ':, It Is proposed; to raise the saloons' tax from $100 to $150 a month,' restaurants sell ing liquor from $75 to $113 a month I and wholesalers from $75 to $100 a month. Thin will bring about $200,000 more into the city; treasury annually. - ' "^ '*,'¦¦, Such a course was mapped out long ago 1 ¦>• the administration, and tho news -will come as no surprise to the liquor interests. It will have th'? active support of tha finance committee of the council. Though the number of thlrst-qucnfthlnß establishments Is restricted In Los An geles the Increase of population and th» heavy tourist travel Is such that ths ad ditional tax Will prove no burden, the ad ministration advisers think. Councilman Wallace has stated he would favor making the rates much higher, while Councilman Ilealy says they arc high enough. These men represent the ex tremes of opinion in the uldermanio body on that subject. When the increase is voted the first step will be to augment the police force, by jIOO men. This will use up about $100,000. The other JlnVi.nflO will go to other urgent needs of the city. Councilmen will pVobably quickly fall into line on tho Idea because the added income will enable them to get benefits for their wards, ami no opposition to tho measure is expected when tho messaga io road. Tho idon has the tacit support of th« leading liquor men themselves, as they have stated they prefer an increase In rates rather then to have tho council consider the idea of increaßirtg the liquor establishments and get the needed funds in that way.
