She has 430 tons of New York discharge here. if a. report received in Sydney reieatly .’a.u be relied on. the Royal Packet Company will soon lose the distinction of being the only Dutch line trading to Australia- The message is to the effect that. r-alining the vast j-ossibililieS of trade he • ve.-n Australia and Holland, it had been (h'id'-rl by on** of the most important tlm Dutch lines that the time is row i■ii[h)rnirio to establish the service, and that vessels were to begin loading at Rotb rdam. then visit Australian and other peas oil the outward berth. Hew they ■ Id return heme does not appear yet. bui it is understood that one of the vessels should have begun the passage t-e-Australia on October ,14. Support is lent to Die reported development- by a state ruei.i made to the effect that one Hrm of Australian importers had about 10D motor ears corning forward in a. Did el, v.-ssel, without transhipment, from Genoa. The MHlwraith-MTtacharn .steamer Koolonca, "which is at present- paying Iter first, visit to Wellington, is quite a new vessel, having" left Home in February o : this year. She is a vessel of 4.260 toncross and 2.632 tons net register, launched early last year by the Sunderland Ship bunding Company, Sunderland. The vessel left Cardiff on February 28 with a full lo»d of coal for Fremantle, ami earn' our via the Cape mute. Captain HccncM‘ I tonald ho went H< •111' 1 to bl ■img the vosel out, is now in command of th» Koolonga. He has been 27 years in the nr play of the M‘ 1 hvraith-M ‘F.aeiiarn Company, prior to which h«* was in command of the Union Company's ste,inter Taupo, and left her some time before she was lost. Another vessi'l coming to Auckland from New York via Dw Panama Canal is tlm Cape Corso. Captain H. White-Parsons, R.N.R.. of Cue Tara.wera. who has b*-en appointed harbor master ai Napier, has had n most successful career in the service of the Union Company, in whose employ lie hats been for the pa-t 17 years. At various times he ha= l—eii in command of the Kin:. Pohertm. Komatn. Kaiapoi. Whangapo, MapouriUa. Ratcena.. Arahura, Monowai, and the Tarawera. and for the past 12 months has been regularly engaged in the Duuedln-Kirst ("oast Auckland service. Captain Manning, who has Wen on holiday leave, joined the Monowai at LytMton 'on Tuesday, replacing Captain W. Steven*, who has come ashore for orders.

Captain J. L. Drewetie. of the Mokoia, took command of the Tarawera at Wellington on Tuesday, and wa« succeeded on the former vessel by Captain M’Leau, late of the Warritnoo. Some interesting comment on the relative merits of British and German vessels appeared in a recent issue, of tho London ‘Times.’ They ate attributed to a ‘‘leading shipowner.” Although the total German tonnage was yet small a* compared with the British total, he was certain that the earning capacity of the German cargo liner tonnage was a great deal higher than a similar amount of British cargo tonnage. As a rule, the first i-ast of the British vessels was less, tmt that, was not everything. British builders were too apt, to build on stereorvped lines, and generally British owners did not make the same study of the science of building as was done abroad. A leading official of another large company admitted that the German yards were now producing very fine ships, but it must be remembered that they had bad all the British experience to work upon. He believed that both British owners and builders had been conservative, in the past, and the results had seemed to justify it: perhaps now greater aAantaibilltj would be required.

The first, vessel to arrive in Now Zea latirl waters from Now York via the Panama Canal will be the Parley, which left the American port on October 9. The vessel will make Auckland her first port •if call, and thou go on to Wellington, Lyttelton. Dunedin. Hobart, Launceston, am I Sydney. THK PANAMA CANAL. stIORTENTNcToF ROUTES. That the. opening of the Panama Canal would moan a radical shortening of sea routes has been aparent from the first, but. it is doubtful if tin* most ardent, supporters apprehended there would bo such a vast reduction as the table shows ;
