SAlLED.—November 2, Star of Scotland, s.s. (6.45 p.rn.). 6,250 tons. West, for Napier direct.
The Victoria, which arrived yesterday morning from Auckland via Fast (.oast, brought the following passengers ;—.Mes<l imes Cathill and infant, Beebe and infant, Stubbs, Inglis. Hothersall and infant, and Kenny, Miss Kenny, Messrs finfiie, Rowlett, and Crawford ; and IX It is reported that the steamer I iophet. which is at present discharging Newcastle coal at Auckland, has been chartered by the Union Company. .She is a vessel of 3,226 tons gross, and vus built in 1912 at Nowcastle-on-Tyne for Messrs J. Gaff and Co., of .Sydney. It is stated that Messrs Richardson and Co., of Napier, paid £20.000 for their new steamer Mako. which is now eu route from Homo to New Zealand. The vessel has accommodation for 20 passengers, and will carry about 550 tons of cargo. . . , . Owing to a number of its vessels being required for other purposes, the Wlme Star Line has, in order to make pro.- mo for shippers in the United Kingdom, f bartered the steamer Den of Ogil. According to present intentions, she will go on the berth early next month, being timed to sail on November 14 for ..uNralian ports. The Norwegian barque Remonstrant arrived at Svdnev on October 21 from the South Sea Islands with a cargo of copra. The Remonstrant was onn of several sailin" vessels which were originally chartered to load coal at W-stport tor one of the German possessions in the Pacific, but on the outbreak of war the charter was cancelled. One of the new auxiliary scows for the Northern Company's coastal trade has ivet-n launched at Auckland. A section of the machinery has been installed, but no further progress can be made with the work of getting the vessel ready for sea owing to a part of the machinery and fittings being detained in England as a result of the war. The other auxiliary scow which'is being constructed for the company at the yards of Air O. T. Niocol is nearing completion, and should l»- ready for launching in about a fortnight’s time. ' The Yankee Salvage Association of New York have succeeded in recovering the purser’s safe of the steamer Empress of Ireland, sunk in the St. Lawrence River last May, which contained a large amount of silver bullion and valuables belonging to passengers. The salvers have also recovered seven bars of silver bullion out of a total of £50,000 worth, and it is expected that the remainder will be brought to the surface in the near future. A number of mail bags are likewise among the salvage from this illfated vessel. The work of bringing bodies to the surface continues in a satisfactory manner considering the difficulties encountered as the vessel lies in over 130 ft of water. The Victoria sailed for Auckland via East Coast ports. ?he connects with the Riverina for Sydney. The John is due at Dunedin from Lyttelton on Thursday, and sails the same day for Wanganui via way ports. The Westralia is due here on Thursday from Auckland and East Coast ports, and. will sail on Friday on the return trip. Her departure will probably be timed so as to suit passengers desiring to travel to Christchurch for t ( he New Zealand Cup. The Moeraki left Hobart on Sunday for Sydney, Wellington, and Lyttelton. The Invercargill was expected to sail this afternoon for Itl-aft and Invercargill.
The Star of Scotland sailed last evening for Napier direct to continue her Homeward loading. Tho first steamer from the Pacific Coast of America via tho Panama Canal reached Liverpool on October 15. Tho Shaw-Savill steamer Mamari, which left London on October 15, is duo at Wellington on December 1, She is coming out in place of the Arawa, and will leave Wellington on tho Homeward journey on December 31.
The Commonwealth and Dominion Line steamer Indrabarah is expected to arrive at Auckland about November 25 from London, Melbourne, and Sydney. The Indrabarah, after discharge at Auckland, will visit Napier and Wellington to complete unloading. It is not often that sailing vessels run coal from Greymonth to Auckland. The barque Manunui, 358 tons, Captain Schutze, now at Greymonth discharging general cargo from Sydney, has been chartered to load a cargo of coal at the West Coast port for Auckland. After discharge the Manunui will load a cargo of timber at Auckland for Sydney. Aa ' the , passenger and cargo trade _in the WaUington-W’est Coast service, which has fallen off very considerably of late, does not warrant both the Arahura and Mapourika being retained in that run, the Union Company have arranged to withdraw the Mapourika. Commencing on Monday, the Mapourika catered the Wel-lington-Picton-Nelson service in place of the Pateena, which, will be laid up for an overhaul.
To all appearances tho New Zealand Shipping Company’s liner Rotorua is going to make her stay in New Zealand this trip one of the shortest on record. At Auckland soma 2,000 tons of cargo from Home were discharged very quickly, and the vessel got away for 'Wellington at 4.20 p.m. on Monday week, arriving in Wellington shortly after 11 a.m. on Wednesday. The trip down was cut out in particularly good time. Soma 2,500 tons of cargo were put out at Wellington, and the vessel is now at Lyttelton, whore she will -commence her Homeward loading as soon an her discharge is completed. . THE FERRY SERVICE. The Wahine. from Wellington, arrived at Lyttelton at 7.40 this morning, and connected with the second express for tho tenth*
FIREMEN’S DEMANDS. WELLINGTON, November 2. The Union Company agreed to-day to the demand made oy the firemen of the steamer Waitomo that three extra hands should be engaged in the stokehold, as the vessel was to make an extended oversea trip and the work would be more' continuous than on a strictly intercolonial run. Men were engaged, and the Waitomo sailed this afternoon for Newcastle. SHIPPING TELEGRAMS. PODTO, November 1.—8.50 p.m., Pouto, schooner, from Dunedin. KAIPARA, November 2.—Wairuna, for Auckland.
