Its fair fame and beauty are sullied by

Bourse forth from Its funnels. There Is
ao beauty In the uneconomical', the true

and the farooua nt this instance will be

la my previous articles I have dwelt
mora with the aohlevemewts already af
fected In the application of oil tor power
purposes, and may wing forth tvrtvntls Ti
tles which lie therein. There are maay
question bound up m oil s progress,
tnany duTVultMs ta be overrents, and I
wish, while showing what has already
bees sthisvad ea the sea, to suggest a
aolutlon ef one difficulty with which ws
are faced, . Bo, for the noare, I leave
the general for the particular, practice
for policy.
Our leading marine engineers, among
whom Is such a high authority as Sir
Fortascue IHennery. are all aow ell ad
vocates. Lord Kleher .some little time
back assail ail that oil was the future
power producer. . Such, experienced and
tarsesjna authorities are amps JaUfl
oatloa for our faith In . oil, but praotlcal
results speak with evea mure authority
than they..
Aa estimate that was made some ttttle
time since , by Mr. Kermode of bendoa
skewed that In a evexwel like tha Uist
tanw,. running on all, tha total savmg
would amount to A1U, while the net
savings and additional earning asaausty
fer the trip would amount to tha largl
total of (hUH.
New. a certain amount at confirma
tion ef the economise sriown In tha abovs
estimate has beea proved In actual prac
tice. In a Japanese liner, the Tenyo Mare,
having a alt equipment capable of pro
ducing lAWH shaft horse-power, the con

with a eea! ooasampooei ef UI pounds,
so that oil consumption In proportion as
onaJ la approxlrnktely In ratio ef t to S.
It Is net dirticult te calculate what sav
ing would be effected over a long dis
tance, and .In addition to this there
Is as be added tha extra Income derivable
from the greater touaaus of -cargo and
number of passengers capable of being
carried. Another Instance, la smaller
vessel In use tor certain services In con
nection with the American navy, it was
found that ay the uss af oil fuel the
annual saving amounted tt H.Se, which
was made up by gue saving aa fuel eal
t,"0 en the saving ef labor.
This brtnga me to the chief argument
of this article. The efficiency and
economy ot the oil engine, aa well ss
those ef the ell fuel ' burner, are ad
mitted and proved, aad tag shipping Unss
have recognised these facts, . but their
difficulty has been, and la. that of ob
taining sufficient and continuous sup
pllee of oil. Is thla aa Insuperable diffi
culty? 1 contend that it Is not,, and I
also euggeet that the rational way . out
of the difficulty la the addition of one
or mora afl tankart te their existing
fleets.' With such an oil tanker at their
draaoaalt they would be enabled to buy
ell In the eheepest market, which. Is, ot
course, ths only baslness-llke way of
SMMgemejit. The eetietrwstloa of an ell
tanker would speedily as paid for by the
saving effected, and the extra Income
whleh would be earned by tha asa of
ell fuel, rurtnermore. It la the crux ef
the enualtoa at ths present time. It
would banish forever the question of
supply, aad It would place every shipping
company above the contingencies which
arlsa from the fact of Oraat Britain be
ing a non-producer of oil.
. Tht oil, will besoms the great propel -hng
power m the navy- there Is aot a
shadow of a doubt; tor It not only
enables a greater speed te be obtained,
but It provldra a far greater radius of
action. In addition to this, a vast sav
ing of time is effected In leading up the
fuel, and the time taken for steam
ralelag kt vary much shorter than that
when coal la used , .
