Safe Route for Australia
A manager of one of the lines trad-
ing to Australasia has given a Jour-
nal of Commerce representative mo
reasons which have actuated shipping
companies to adopt "lane" routes for
their vessels. The primary one is. to
prevent captains taking their steam-
ers too far south, thereby risking an
encounter with the ice. The secon-
dary object is to insure that any
steamer requiring It shall have assist-
ance in the shortest time possible.
Any "lame duck” keeping the track
is bound to be picked up in a few
days by a vessel of one or other of
the lines, and in a case of fire of
other casualty where passengers
might poslbly have to take to the
boats the risk of lives being lost
would be greatly minimized.

ural gas for domestic and manufac-
