Mr W. E. Sanders, late chief officer of the wrecked barque Josepn Craig, has passed his examination for an extra master’s certificate at Sydney. Lieutenant J. S. 0. Reid, R.N.. at one time an officer in the Union Lem* pany’s service, and who recently joined the Royal Navy, is now serving as a lieutenant on the Roxburgh, an armored cruiser of 10j800 tons, attached to the third cruiser squadron. Lieutenant Reid has three brothers serving with the British Array. The Scales chartered steamer Cape Ortegal, now at Sydney, will come to New Zealand to load wool and general cargo for Home. The vessel will probably load at Lyttelton. Napier, Wellington, and Auckland. She is timed to leave New Zealand about December 8 for Home ports. The cargo steamer Caldergrove. 4,027 tons. Captain M’Millan, was despatched from New’ York on October 21 for Auckland, Wellington, Lyttelton, end Dunedin. The vessel is bringing a full cargo of case oil for the ports named on behalf of the Vacuum Oil Company. She is expected to arrive at Auckland early in December. The cargo lifted by the Star of Scotland at Wellington for Horae comprised 9,181 carcases and 294 legs of mutton, 4,942 carcases lamb. 502 quarters beef, 30 bags hearts, 30 cases kidneys, 3,184 bales wool, 231 casks tallow, 43 casks pelts, 153 casks casings, 40 casks lard, and 39 kegs and 1 case sundries. It is officially notified that the United Tyser Line, a combination of German and British steamers engaged in the freight trade from New York to Australian ports nnd New Zealand, has ceased to exist as a result of the way. It is the intention, however, of British shipowners who were interested in this vast concern to carry on tho service with ships of their own nationality, those of the Commonw’ealth-Doniinion Lino especially playing a prominent part. Captain Welsford, master of the steamer Purley (tho first vessel to bring cargo for New Zealand via the Panama Canal), describes it as one of the most interesting experiences of his life. The Purley left New York on October 11 last, and reached tho Canal eight days later. Unfortunately she was then delayed for four days by a fall of earth winch had taken place in tho Culebra Cut on October 13. By the first three colossal locks which tho vessel traversed tho PurIcy was raised 71ft above sea level, and then commenced her downward journey to the Pacific Ocean. The time taken in traversing tho Canal was six and a-lulf hours. As evidencing tho great gain in time which tho Canal enables steamers to make, it mav bo mentioned that the Star of New Zealand, which left Now York for New Zealand via tho old route on September 30, that is 11 days before the Purley, is not due at Auckland until about the end of this month. The distance from New York to New Zealand by the Cape route is 11.571 miles, while by the Panama route it is 8,500 miles, a saving of over 3,000 miles. The Purley completed the voyage in 37 steaming days. Under tho old time-table tho American cargo boats used to call at Australian ports before coming on to New Zealand, but since the Panama Canal route has been opened the Dominion ports are the first touched at. ' Captain J. M, Welsford has associated with him the following officers ;—Chief, Mr S. G. Aeland; second, Mr S, Bullock; third, Mr G. S. Jeffreys; engineers —chief, Mr G. E. Mead; second. Mr J. Samnelson; third. Mr O. H. Bonner; fourth, Mr C. Johnson. After discharging at Auckland the vessel comes on to Wellington. Lyttelton, and Dunedin. ' Tho working arrangement made between the Hamburg-American Company and the Norddeutscher-Llovd at the'instigation of the German Emperor prior to tho war made the combination the most powerful of Its' kind in the world, and able to dictate its own terms in almdst any trade. Tho companies have a combined share capital of over 14 millions sterling, and a fleet of about 2,268.326 tons gross, valued in the books at slightly over £20,000,000. Herr Ballin has of late years been extending his influence in various directions. He controls, besides other German shipping companies, most of the Italian passenger shipping lines. He has made arrangements with one or more .British shipowners by which ha obtains a large interest in their steamers; he made arrangements with Mr Bernard N. Baker to take half the capital in his proposed line from, the Atlantic to the Pacific coast through the Panama Canal, but the project has since fallen through, and he ' has made overtures to sundry other concerns to acquire all ’ their steamers in certain lines. It will thus be seen that Herr Ballin was using every endeavor to extend the influence of his great company. Unless his company’s losses, however, are made good by the German Government, it looks as if it will have a very serious set-back this year. It is estimated that the cost of keeping the Taterland in Now York harbor with her crew on board is from £SOO to £I,OOO per day, while considerable amounts are likewise being incurred by tho other vettela pi the deat.
