The Buteshire is due at Dwicdm for discharge of her Wast of Engond. cargo on December 8, and on completion will proceed to take in Homeward loading. She will sail finally from Wellington about the end of December. The abeamer Miko bmlt by Mwrsi Bow. M'Lachlan, and Co., Ltd., Paisle}, fcr the Union Steam. Ship Company of New Zealand, Tan trial* on the Clyde which extended over a whole day, and were of an exhaustive character and mort satisfactory, the speed obtained being in excess of contract requirements (state* the London ' Shipping World' of October /). She has been designed for service as a | pawencer » n <i car *° steamer, and was built under the supervision of Captain Livingstone and Mr Tucker, superintendent engineer of tho Lnion Steam Ship Companv. There were present at the trial Captain Strang, marine superintendent of the company in New Zealand, Mr Millar, of the Union Company, Mt Minchin, of Lloyd's Mr Isaacs, of the Boad of tTade. The Mako is at present en route to New Zealand, and, according to advices previously published, was built for Messrs Richardson and Co.. to be used in the East Coast trade. She is expected here about the end of the year. The first all-water voyage from ban Francisco to New York by way of the Panama Canal was completed on the arrival at New York on August 26 of the learner rietades, of the Lnekenbach Steamship Company. The Pleiades, which flies the American flag, sailed from Sau Francisco on July 24, and passed through the canal on August 16. The American-Hawaiian Steamship Company 6 steamship MiseotiTian passed through the Panama Canal and arrived at Los Angeles. Cal.. August 27. She passed through the canal on August 15, and carried 1,700 tons of general merchandise for Los Angeles. It is stated that the PaWorch,. owned by Messrs J. M. Campbell and Son, and leistered at Glasgow, •was the first British vessel to pass through the Panama Canal. Two sailing vessels now listed to arrive at Port Adelaide will, after reaching port. end their careers on the hijjh seas, and fulfil the less dignified but still useful mle of coal hulka. Both of these have been purchased bv the Adelaide Steamship Comnanv, Ltd. The Maranda. at one time the Lord Canning, now flies the Norwegian fla?, and is en route from Bahia. Blanca in ballast trim. She is an old baTque. built in 1867, by T. Itoyder and of Liverpool, and is 1.518 tons cross, 1.382 tons net, 224.2 ft long. 37.8 ft heam. 23.5 ft depth. The Colonna, likewise under the Norwegian merchant flag, is timber laden from the Baltic. Formerly the Siena Colonna. she was built in 1878 by Richardson. Dick, and Co., of Stockton;* and measures 238 ft in length. 38ft beam. 22.8 ft depth, and is 1,497 tons Kress, and 1,387 tons net. The mishap to the B.M.S. Buahine off the New Zealand coast (says the Sydnev ' Daily Telegraoh') illustrates more forcibly than ever before in these waters the enormous value of wireless telegraphy. As it turns out, the leak was not of the nM serious character, and in any case the vessel would have made port, but it was an immense relief to thbso on honTd. the passengers in particular, to find within an hour or two a splendidlyequipped pawenger steamer like the Wahine shepherding them back to port. In the cane of a steel or iron vessel there it alwavs the horrible chance of the vessel turninc turtle when sufficient water has been shipped to shift its centre of gravity, nnd the passenger* at leaat had a rather anxious time up till the arrival of the Union Company's flier, whose advent wan solely due to wireless tele-;;->phv. By that means, too, the progress of the' vessel towards port was made known at frequent intervals, and the agent* at Wellington were* able to make full preparation for her arrival. Some pertinent observations on the .subject of shutting out German competitors are made bv a" steamship owner in a Tec?nt issue of .'The Times.' "Wo have in the Daat," ho says, ".very foolishly alluwpfl German passenger steamers to call at English ■ ports like Southampton and Plymouth, and tho French :havo allowed them ta call at Cherbourg to emhark, and also to land paaeriaers from North and South America. The natural geo- ] jrraphical advantage* ■which France and England .possess, for .all transatlantic traffic both north, and south, should be ronfincd to these countries"; Stall events, in the future German lines should be 'rigidly excluded. This measure would immediately wipe out the HamburgAmerika line and the NorddeutscherLloyd Line as passenger linee, a* no travellers from America, North or South, would evef dream of waiting to disembark till they reached Bremerhaven or Hamburg. Considering that tha-- profits made by these" German lines through'the facilities Franca and England have given them in tWa-reapeci have been used to *" laree extent to build up a German fleet in order to destroy this country and France H would only be a natural-thing after tho war to see that this practice is put an end to once and for all. The only ' r&aliafion Geftnany/coutd impTOr-TwtlcV J be to RWflliM Britifh cargo ehipe titd*
tag to Bremen or but both of these ports, are disliked by British owners, and if the Britisfi and French flags were excluded the German consumer ana manufacturer would have to pay higher freights for German and neutral tonnagto, thus handicapping Germany in their import and export trade." The Mokoia, from Auckland via East Coast ports, is due here to-morrow, and sails on Tuesday on the return trip. Among the latest charters is that of the Louisa Craig, which will load salt at Edithborg for Nevy Zealand. The Tongariro, en route from London to Port Chalmers, left Hobart on Tuesday night, and was expected to arrive here this afternoon. She is bringing a large number of passengers for all New Zealand ports. At the annual meeting of the Colonial Sugar Refining Company held in Sydney at the end of last month it was decided to order anothor steamer, which will subsequently engage in the sugar trade in company with the Fiona. The Kanna, which arrived from Newcastle yesterday with a cargo of coal; will sail for the West Coast next week.'
On her trip from Hobart and Sydney the Manuka, which arrived at Wellington on Monday, experienced generally line weather and moderate seas except when nearing port. The Manuka's cargo for Wellington included a shipment of marble, ex the interned steamer Griefswald, and a small quantity of cargo ex the Essen. Transhipments were also brought from the steamers Nikko Maru, Canberra, Khyber, Strathdene, Medina, Ophir, and Orsova. On inquiry at the Wellington office of the Union "Company early in the week a ' Dominion' reporter ascertained that the Pateena would be ready to resume running in the Wellington-Picton-Nelson service on Monday. Her programme is being canned out by the Mapourika pro tern. It is anticipated that the latter vessel will be despatched from Wellington for New Plymouth and Westport on Wednesday, November 25. After being master of the Lyttelton schooner Lily for 24 years, Captain Andrew Bloom has resigned his position. During his long service Captain Andrew Bloom traded between Greymoutfi and Lyttelton almost 'Continuously for the last 15 years in- the timber trade, with an occasional trip to Kaipara.
