1,000 FOOT SHIP
MAY DOCK IN
IT WILL BE GIGANTIC, ALREADY
ORDERED BY WHITE STAR
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
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
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.
