hardly believe that these ubiquitous

that of lato years has reached vast

idenced by plans that have boon per

KAISER WILHELM II.
Trial Trip of the Greatest Passenger
Uerlin .March 30. Persons who fol
low the trend of events In shipbuild
ing nnd tho breaking of records on
tho Atlantic ocean by great liners are
awaiting with keenest Interest the re
sults of tho trial trip begun today of
the North Germnn Lloyd trans-Atlantic
liner, the Kaiser Wllhelm II.
From the day tho keel uf the big
liner was laid the company has not
concealed Its hope that sho will bo
oblo to make the trip from Snndy
Hook to Plymouth nt n dally nvorngo
speed of 23?6 knots an hour. Should
tho great liner be nblo to llvo up to
this promlso sho will, of course, come
newer making the passage In llvo days
than was ever done before, nnd will
(stnblish her absolute right to tho
title of "Queen of tho Sea" ln practi
cally every respect.
That tho hopes of tho builders nro
not without foundation Is evidenced
by h comparison of tho now ship
with some of the biggest liners now in
the Atlantic service. Tho Knlsor
Wllhelm II Is equipped with engines
capable of 40,000 horso power. The
noutschland has about 37,000 and the
Kronprintz of tho Hamburg-American
line, which nt present holds tho rec
ord for speed, has nbout 34,000 horse
Tho displacement figures of tho
Knlsor Wllhelni II nro 20,t00 tons,
which is enough to fill n canal 30
feet wide, fi feet deep nnd B.1K3 reel
long. As for the coal bunkers, their
size will bo appreciated when It Is
Known that their cnpaclty is four
times as largo ns the biggest (initio-
snip alloat and equal to Ihc enrgo
capacity of a large ocean tramp.
The vessel will havo accomodations
lor S00 flrst-chiss pnsscngers. 400 sec
ond cabin, and 1,100 steerngo pnsson
gers, besides tho BOO persons who will
compose the officers and crow. In
Its Interior fittings nnd decorations
the ship will excel in many respects
the finest steamship alloat.
