NOTES OK SBIPPIKU. Th? construction of an immense Atlantic liner fitted with a steam tur? bine for driving the propellers may soon be undertaken in Great Britain. The pretest vessel in the world moved by steam is the Turbintv. und if the s;tnn> principles involved can be successfully applied to the larger ships engineers have no doubt of the ocean being cross? ed in a day or two less than it is now traversed by the fastest ships. Though the steam turbine was ori? ginally designed for small vessels of ex? ceptional power and speed, there is sa'd i<> be no reason to prevent its appli? cation also to'oeean liners, cruisers and cross-channel passenger vessels. It is alo said experience has shown that the iarger the scale on which the engines are made the greater the ease in ful? filling the conditions for the highest economy in steam, with a minimum of weight. Although, at present, the plan to build an ocean liner in Great Britain with turbine machinery has not taken more pract...
