British merchant ships and others not Only in ships of War but in merchant vessels steam Aud sailing great Britain still Boms a big. Lead among the nations having More than one third of the Craft and not very far from one Balf of the tonnage of the world. According to Tbs latest edition of Lloyd a Register there Are now in existence 30,540 steamers and sailing ships 11,565 of which Are credited to Britain. The tonnage of All nations Aggregates 41,449,767 tons Britain a Slid re being 18,826,442 tons or Over 35 per cent. This is four and one half times As much tonnage As is owned by Germany and three and one half times As much a sails under the stars and stripes the tonnage of the United states including that on the lakes timing 4,953,812f Norway comes next to Germany in capacity of Ber merchant Fleet but her total is but slightly More than one tenth that of great Britain. France is fifth with scarcely More than one tenth of Britain a tonnage Italy sixth Japan seventh and Russia the Netherlands Sweden Austria. Hungary Denmark and Spain following in that order. Still More marked is great Britain a superiority As a common Carrier owing to the very High proportion of steam tonnage to the total. Her total steam tonnage amounts to 17,702, tons As compared with 3,889,000 tons for Germany and 3,661,332 tons for the United states. An analysis of the figures furnished by Lloyds gives an idea of the increase in the number of High Speed vessels. There Are now in existence 101 steamers capable of exceeding Twenty knots an hour or 43 More than in 1901 and 93 More than in 1891. Thirty four of the Idi steamers Are propelled by Parsons turbines. And one by the Curtis tur Itne showing that the development of Speed has been directly influenced by the new system of propulsion. No fewer than 61 of the knitters Are British owned As compared with 32 in 1981 and 8 in 1891, the Only foreign nation showing any considerable addition to the number of fast ships being the United states. Of steamers of Between 19 and 20 knots there were 17 in 1891, double that number in 1901, while since the lather year Only 8 vessels have been added making the total at present 42, of which Berlin owns 27. There arc How 85 vessels making Between 18 and 19 knots As compared with 47 in 1901, a of of these 59 Are British owned. Vessels making or exceeding seventeen knots in Speed total 353, Britain a share being 206. Figures As to the number of vese Els of great size Are also interesting there ale now 133 ships each exceed ing 10,000 Gross tons f72 of which Are owned by British companies. Germany is second with 33, and the United states third with 9. There Are Only two ships of Over 30,000 tons the Mauretania and Lusitania. The vessels of Between 20,000 and 25,000j tons Are thus distributed great Britain 4, Germany 2, and the Sun item states and the Netherlands each. It must have no time limit to its Aerial endurance. It must not wait for pleasant weather or Light winds but must go flying All abroad on the wings of the mightiest winds. Travellers cannot wait for pleasant Days nor freight for Light winds. The aeroplane must sail Ever Day on schedule time or As near it As possible before men can be said to have conquered the air. And yet the aeroplane in its incipient stages compares More than favourably with Watts steam engine and the original locomotive and steam boat. It has made steady Progress since its first ascent and there is no doubt now that it has come to stay. It would be rash to affirm in this Era of overcoming seeming impossibilities that Aerial transportation will not be come As fixed a tact As land transportation and that the Airship will not be As Safe and comfortable As the Railroad train the Ocean liner or the automobile possibly safer than the latter. It i the White it and a nerve. In song and Story much has been heard about the a White Many a Burden a but now and then something happens that reveals the magnificent Cheek of the White Man in dealing with men. Black Brown and yellow in the acid Corners of the Earth a despatch to an English paper taunts in Bechuanaland gives the latest instance or rather the late t recorded instance for such things Are happening All the time. Two natives arrived in taunts and announce themselves one As the Savior and the other As his Prophet and tongan Ai dressing a Large gathering of the a Lapin tribe. The Leader worked in much excitement and pointing t i wards the european Quarter declared a before the Sun sets tonight not White person must remain into this mass of 1.500 natives in Specter shouldered his Way attendee by one Constable arrested the two leaders and marched them off to the presence of a magistrate. The crowd followed making threats and refused to disperse on command of the magi irate who could not employ Force As he had no support but that of his two officers too had made the arrests. At this critical moment Molali the Bat Lapin chief arrived and dispersed the mob with a horse whip and the two men under arrest were committed for trial. One would suppose that in the circumstances the Woite Man would be satisfied in View of the fact that two constables carried their Point against fifteen Hundred angry natives. By not so. The despatch tells us that a he incident is regretted As it tends to strengthen the influence of chief Molali As against the we Lufte authorities. The situation however As seen from this distance does not ook alarming. So Long As a Man of the courage and vigor of Molali deems it prudent to Wield his horse whip in favor of inspector Turner and against 15t0 angry warriors of his tribe. Among native races the world Over for centuries the britishers has been doing work of this kind exercising a benevolent Fil Dale soreness and shouldering his was through angry crowds As if by divine right and As if he bore a charmed life. As a Rule me gets away with his Bluff somehow or other and a the prisoners Are committed for nothing in fiction could Excel in daring the Plain Una dished tales of this kind that history could. Take the tuition if people want to kill themselves by their Folly let ther do but that does not satisfy the shocked by the frightful accidents each passing Day. A vehicle capable of giving much pleasure and enjoyment to its users becomes a positive menace to the safety of those whom it carries and those whom it meets of. The Highway unless it is handled with care. Considering the mileage Cor ered and the number of machines in use the 144 deaths of the season so far May not be relatively a Large mortality list. It is the feeling that the larger part of the deaths might have been avoided that is disturbing. British interest in Canada. Automobile racing. Aerial transportation. The aeroplane races and other a at Ion spectacles at Rheims during i last two or three Days Are worthy it note As Epoo making events. A great essayist of the nineteenth Century air that Man could never wholly fulfil his destiny As a world ruler by cause he could never Fly or navigate i the air. Yet Here Are men sailing Over seas journeying from one country to another mane vering for War possibilities carrying passengers on i pleasure of Ings racing for records land prizes and All in the air. a Century age he would have been set i Down As a mad Prophet who declare the time when half a dozen airships j would career about As at Rheims for an hour or More without collision of a it is Gratifying to note that the offi dais of the american automobile As-3 j striation have gone on record As opposed to any further races of 250 Ani 300 Miles until the conditions permitted in the past Are radically changed. The killing of five people at Indianapolis was decisive. The dangers which have been discovered Are to be minimized if not entirely removed. No Driver will be permitted to engage in a Long contest wit lout careful physical examination not will be allowed to drive a car the whole distance in the Case of several a a Hundred Miles furthermore when Drivers Are changed. Time will be taken for thorough inspection of the racing machines to he made by experts. Under the most favourable circumstances automobile racing contests Are certain to be attended by great danger. The rate of Speed is excessive. The excitement of connect makes one forgetful of restraints. The Chance of a break in the machinery or of a momentary loss of control is Ever present. Death keeps near by ready injury to anyone. Yet the feat a been accomplished and already the to grasp and be of Many of Portum Woid is beginning to cease its wonder. Man has already Well night subjugated the Earth. He is running hts cog roads to the Summit of the Alps. He is utilizing the deserts and fertilizing the waste places. Byron said of the Ocean and Man a this control stops with thy shores a but with the ies to Manifest his presence. There have been too Many killings in these races As they have been conducted the Slaughter at Indianapolis should remain the limit in motor racing. Incidentally the danger of the automobile in the hands of reckless inexperienced or intoxicated Drivers is be London advertiser in his capacity of British Trad commissioner to Canada or. Richard Grigg is in a favored position to watch the growth of interest in the Dom in Ion among British manufacturers and capitalists. He declares that this in Terest has become Keener and More healthful than even before. He tells us that Large numbers of British manufacturers and traders visit his office in Montreal for advice and assistance in procuring accurate and full information As to the conditions under w hich they May undertake business in Canada. Such information is freely Given by or. Grigg and officials a Branch offices established in a number of other Canadian cities. In addition reports on every conceivable economic question Are regularly made to the British Board of Trade under whose direction or. Grigg acts. In Case where the report is considered suit Able for such use it is printed in Board of Trade journal a weekly government publication. Other report Are privately circulated among firm1 whose business might be affected by the matter dealt with. In the carry ing out of the important work of foe Taring Trade relations Between canard and the Mother country the commis Stoner Wilt visit England from time to time and Confer with officials o the various departments of the government As Well As with manuf Actu ers and merchants. He serves As it source of information of a nature hitherto unknown to British business men and there is reason to Hope that his efforts will have the effect of promoting a better and More sympathy to understanding Between Trade Bodie and individual business houses in the two countries. Hard working Harriman. In a recent diagnosis of or. Har Rimanis Case prof. Struempel amp Vienna attributed the Railroad Many a ill health to a general nervous debility and exhaustion due to Over work and no one at All familiar with Harriman a daily life in the past ten years was sur prised at the opinion of the Austri an specialist. Harriman a special interests Are in the Railroad world but the forty one corporations of which he is a director include the follow ing a National City Bank. Night and Day Bank equitable Trust company. Guaranty Trust company. Colorado fuel and Iron co. Four steamship companies. Western Union Telegraph co. Wells Fargo express co. Wall Street knows that Harriman remains on no directorate w Bere he cannot direct. In addition to taking an Active part in the management of the companies and finding time to engage in politics of several states be has kept in close touch with Ever the minute details of the civic Southern system and tile Allied Railroad lines.

The Brandon weekly Suh courage undue expansion and excess Sivc optimism. In other words the return to Prosperity is a sane Aud As it should be. The railroads anticipating As they do a car Stonage Early in the fall have had time to take proper measures against it to put their roiling Stock in order As to were to Issue in St auctions against bad practices of certain shippers that contribute to unequal distribution of transportation facilities. Prosperity if it is to be widely in oyed. Requires foresight and preparation. Not Only on the part of producers and carriers but on the part of Banks and middlemen. Gradual com Mercial expansion is healthy for All Egit innate interests while mushroom growth begets reckless speculation Ive capitalization of future profits overconfidence in the staring of new ventures. Reasonable caution now when so much ground Mas already been regained is infinitely better than the preaching of conservatism when danger signals have to be hoisted by sound financiers.

It is pointed jut says the scientific american that n the old coaching Days those vehicles were often More numerous on the highways than motors Are now Anit was Only since the railways so greatly reduced Road traffic that highways came to be considered a legitimate playground for children dogs and chickens so embarrassing to the Automo Ilist. The further elimination of horses due to the increasing use of automobiles for All purposes will soon bring about a slate of things in which highways will not be subjected to two opposing methods of Wear and tear which cannot be resisted by the same Means and the problem of maintaining a durable and Dustless surface will be greatly Sirn a lifted.
