Of fthis 30 miles are available for ocean com Ka mile are In actual com mercial use. Piers owned by the city Comprise 870,000 lineal zeet, wniie me privately owned piers comprise 1, 245,000 lineal feet. During 1910 the city realized a revenue of 14419.206.92 from piers and bulkheads, and from wharf property leased for ferry pur poses exclusive of the municipal fer ries the revenue was $247,913.77. The cost of repairs and maintenance, In eluding labor payrolls, was 2729,937.88. The Jurisdiction of the city extends- to the pierhead line established by the TTt 1 as Stotai irAvom m T Pacifo Fast Sailing Passages. The British schooner David Evans Recently made the voyage from. Kobe, Japans to the Columbia river, upward of 4,000 miles, in twenty-six days, which is . considered fast sailing. Othef - fast passages made by sailing craft between far eastern ports and Pacific coast ports of the United States in recent years are a 19-day passage by the British bark Howard D. Troop from Yokohama to the Co lumbia river and a 27-day passage by the American ship "William H. Star buck from Shanghai to the same point. ' Progress in Raising the Maine. The v steel cofferdam around the wreck of the battleship Maine has een'completed, and the work of pumping It out Is expected to begin about the 26th of this month. "When this, is accomplished the first work will be to remove any remains of the crew tnafmajr still be found ' In her, for which , purpose the navy department will send a vessel to Havana harbor, which will also take on board any ma terial of historic value from the wreck. Wireless Compulsory July 1, 1911. By July 1 every ocean-going steam ship leaving an American port that carries fifty persons, including pas sengers and crew, by law must be equipped with a wireless telegraph outfit capable of sending messages 100 B&es. ,. Nothing more Important has been done In many years to increase the safety of travel at sea than the general Installation of wireless. Under the new system not only will every steam ship be provided with better means of self-protection, but It will be a means of protection for other ships. The quickness with which relief arrived from different quarters at the time of the collision that resulted In the link ing of the RepubMc demonstrated once for all how hereafter the ocean Is to be dotted with live-saving stations. Other Uses of the wireless at sea are to be ..regarded as a convenience for rasVengers and owners that could be rnfp"n'ser with without great loss. The compulsory adoption of It by all passenger-carrying steamships has now become almost as much of a safe guard against disaster as a proper equipment of life-boats. Exchange. , Canal Too Cosily. The special commission appointed to report on the value of a waterway between Narraransett and Massachu setts bays has decided that It would not justify the great expense entailed to, build it. The commission found that a - ship canal from Taunton to H Ingham, the heads of the tide waters of Narragansett and Massachusetts bays,' would involve an expense of $61. ODO.qOO, .while a canal connecting the t,wo bays . and running from Taunton to Plymouth would cost about $41. 000,000... - : t The Floating Dooka of Amsterdam. The new floating drydock being built at Amsterdam, which will be known as the Princess Juliana, will be 466 feet long, 110 feet wide, and have & lifting capacity of 12.504 tons. Besides this dock there are three other floating drydocks at that port, consisting each ofa hollow, oblong bottom and two hollow walla at the longest aides of the dock. When a ship is to be taken qut, the walla, and bottoms are filled Tfrlth water, so that the dock sinks and the vessel floats In It. The latter is and the vessel floats In it. The latter is ter is pumped out, allowing repairs to be made. i Seamen, Not Always Sailors. f While a sailor may be spoken of as a seaman. It does not follow that every seaman Is a sailor. In fact, under present conditions we have many sea men who are not sailors at all in the strict sense of the term, as they have never learned to reef. hand, or steer, due to the scarcity of ships now pro pelled by sail power. Of seamen we have some half a million passing In andfout of this port annually, and they perform the same duties In relation to steam veasels that saiolra performed on sailing vessels. This number is much larger than the total of sailors that .formerly visited this port, hence the growing Importance , of the Sea men s Institutes to care for and pro JL8 most of whom are aliens. These sailors homes have been large factors in lmrpovlng the con ditions aiong our water front in pre vening seamen from being imposed up on, and should have the moral and pecuniary support of all won are In terested in the welfare of this port New York Marine Journal. m'!fritvn.d,8o'ty,s Birthday. The eighty-third anniversary of the American Seamen's Friend Society was observed on the 8th by a reception to ladies in the afternoon, when oppor tunity was given to Inspect the New Sailors' Home and Institute at No. 507 West street, and by appropriate exer cises in the concert hall In the even ing, .at which some 700 seamen were present. After the reading of the an nual reports the following directors were' elected: Anton A. Raven, presi dent of the Atlantic Mutual Life Insur. v f . g - V j y '- v ft i iL Washington, May 17. President Taft has sent to the senate the nomi nation of Captain Austin M. Knight to be & rear admiral. Over the protest of Secretary Meyer, Knight was ac quitted by a court martial of respon sibility for the sinking of the monitor Puritan in Hampton Roads. Secretary Meyer and Knight have consequently become the bitterest enemies, and the talk in Washington is that the secre tary feels that President Tart's pro motion of his foe is a deep humiliation. The secretary has been accused of "persecuting" Knight. ance Company; Rev. Dr. Nehemiah Boynton, Brooklyn; Frederick B. Dai sell, of the Dalzell Towing Company; Capt C B. Parsons, Rod Bank, N. J.; and Fritz von Brisen. Some, 340,000 seamen pas sthrough this port each year, and it is to keep the young men from falling and to lift the fallen that the home is maintained. While the new institute is ideal in many respects It is not yet self-supporting, nor Is it adequate to take care of all the men who apply for help. To do this an ad dition to the building is needed which Will coet about $60,000. To carry on an aggressive religious work among the 5,000 seamen, more or less, of all nationalities in the neigh borhood of the institute, an endowment of $100,000 is needed. - The society has done much, but a great deal still re mains to be accomplished. Ftve dollars make an annual member and $2 a sus taining member. Contributions can be made for the current expenses, the ex tension, or the endowment funds. Checks should be made payable to iha American Seamen's Friend Society and sent to Clarence C. Plnneo, treasurer, 71 Wall street,. New York city. Contri butions of books and magazines are also very acceptable and will be appro, elated. New York Marine Journal. VESSEL8 IN PORT. Steamships. Kuntsgard, Br, Richardson, 2488, to J. A. Merrltt & Co.

New Tork. May 17. Stocks retained the gains made yesterday In the early trad ing to-day and although changes were slight, there were a number of further advances. Early transactions were on a heavy scale. Louisville and Nashville gained 1 1-4 and Denver and Rio Grande and Virginia-Carolina Chemical 8-4. The usual market leaders opened at about on a level with last nighfs close with the exception of United States Steel, which showed some heaviness. The market took realizing sales well and although the list hesitated for a short Interval, the advance was resumed more vigorously than before. About a score of stocks sold from 1 to 2 points above yesterday's closing notably Atchison and Southern Pacific. Further extensive gains were made in the stock market this morning, the whole list advancing in response to a persistent demand. The profits resulting from yes terday's rise Induced some realising and bear traders also supplied a considerable amount of stock early in the day. The market absorbed offerings so rapid ly thet bear traders were forced to cover hastily and the upward movement after being halted temporarily was resumed with Increased vigor. The feeling of con fidence aroused by yesterday's reception of the Standard Oil decision was the chief factor in the oontinued rise In prices. Another source of strength was the larpe operations of western speculative Interests which have purchased stocks heavily of late on account of the condition of the crops which have benefited by recent rains. Representative stocks went ahead at a more rapid pace in the second hour and gains of a point more were general in these issues. The bond market was strong with a large demand for the Erie and Atchison issues.
