The 1,000 loot ship is coming! The news, published originally on July 24, that the White Star line had placed an order with Harland & Wolff of Belfast for a vessel bigger than the Olympic and the Titanic, is now con firmed. Marine builders and port authori ties have said that the Atlantic liners of the future probably would not ex ceed one-fifth of a mile in length. But the 1,000 foot steamship is coming, probably three years hence, with its acres of deckage, miles of distances, Streets of plank walks, promenades of waving palms, its lifts, gardens, re ception rooms, dining saloons and cafes, athletic fields, cricket and base ball grounds, tennis courts and golf courses, telegraph, offices, theaters and grand opera, flower shops and depart ment stores. So much of this has been already realized that the re mainder is easily conceivable. Said one of the managers of the White Star line: "The White Star line will build a 1,000 fol ,t ship and the harbor of New York has accommodations for it. This does not mean, however, that better and more extensive accommodation is not needed. It is needed, and it is coming, thanks to the far-sightedness of the present port authorities and the state of New York, which is working hand in hand with the state of New Jersey and the federal government for deeper channels, larger piers and basins and for general water front improvement, to include the shores of Long Island." Bruce Ismay said last winter: "Ask not what is a ship's draught, but what ig the depth of your channel?" The ship that will practically one-fifth of a mile in length will, like all ships preceding it, be only the result of a growth. It is necesslity because the public demands lerger sleeping rooms on an ocean trip, more comforts, more necessities, more lux uries. That this is true is shown In the plans of the North German Lloyd line, immediately to he carried into ef fect, to remove every other bulkhead in the accommodation of the Kaiser Wilhelm II.. and the Kronprinzessin Cecilie, thereby doubling the size of the sleeping cabins and decreasing the number of first class travelers, but not as a consequence the profits. With the 1,000 footer the beam, carefully observing the proportions, will be between 111 and 112 feet. The displacement will be 70,000 tons and the gross tonnage more than 50,000 tons. The levels will be a dozen or thirteen, with the, topside or cricket field more than 75 feet above the water line. The passenger accommodation will be increased from 750 to 800 in the first class to 1,000 or more, and the total from more than 3,000 to more than 4,000. The Gigantic, of course, will not be a. greyhound, but, like her sisters, a seven-day hotel, with both reciprocat ing and turbine engines. Her cost will be between $9,000,000 and ?10, 000,000. The Gigantic will be an improve ment upon the Olympic. It is denied that the Olympic has had radical al terations made while she has been at Belfast repairing the hole In her side made by the Hawke. The ven tilation system did not work properly on her first trip west, but It was work ing on her first trip east. Passengers said there was plenty of fresh air pumped into her point east, but, owing to the excessively hot July of 1911, It' was hot air. While the cottage and painted glass windows of the dining room, the effect of which is golden sunlight, are gen erally kept closed to look pretty, the real ventilating, it is said, is accom plished through patent ventilators above the windows. The Gigantic will have a cricket field, golf links, reception and ball room outside the main dining room, which will be more than forty feet above her red paint; restaurants and veranda cafes, which may be located forward instead of aft, tennis court, plunge, all kinds of baths, Erymnasiuin and shops, and the most splendid dec orations, which will be so arranged as to heighten the effect of decks already high between joints. The largest steamer yet laid down is Aquitanla of the Cunard line, now building on the Clyde, whose sectional plates are measured for a total of more than 900 feet. After the Cunard lengthened out the keel and decided to put in more plates, the Hamburg American line stretched the plans of the Invperator and put In enough ad ditional plates to make her ten feet langer than Acqultania. The Impera tor is now in course of construction at Stettin. New York World.
