CUNARD CHATTER." When to See the Boats. For the benefit of such of the public as are desirous of witnessing the arrival of Cunard liners, but are at present being misled by grossly inaccurate programmes in which neither the day nor the hour is correctly stated, we publish below the approximate times at which the vessels are officially ex- pected, weather and other circumstances per- mitting. The figures, which are authorative, and therefore quite reliable, are as follow :— Boat. Date. Hour. Umbria Feb 10 1 a.m. Mauretania "If 5 P-m- Campania „ 23 3 a.m. Umbria Mar. 3 1 a.m. When Captain Pritchard bade farewell to his former charge, the Mauretania, he was presented by the stewards with a gold watch, a walking-stick, and an illuminated address. The latter was designed and executed by a steward. The Mauretania, having been fitted with two new propellars, which are expected to greatly accellerate her speed, sailed from Liverpool on Saturday, Capt. Turner, who has hitherto commanded the Lusitania, being on the bridge. The Booth liner Hilary is expected on Wed- nesday, the 23rd instant. The steam suction dredger No. 5, belong- ing to the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board is engaged in deepening the channel within the precints of the harbour. This fact has given rise to a revival of the statement that preparations are afoot for enabling the Cunard liners to berth alongside the Ocean Quay. We have previously had occasion to expose editorially the fallacy of this assertion, yet on Monday the South Wales Daily News "-which is noted for the eccentricity of its announcements concerning Fishguard —gravely declared it to be a fact A similar statement appeared in the "Daily Mail on Tuesday, and there is every proba- bility that, as was the case on a previous occa- sion, the grotesque fiction will go the com- plete round of the Press. The Campania called at Fishguard in the early hours of this (Wednesday) morning, and landed 120 passengers and 1,250 sacks of mails. Shortly afterwards the Booth liner Ambrose" also utilised the port for de- barkation purposes. The marriage arranged between Mr Robert Vernon Harcourt, M.P., and Miss Margorie Cunard, which was recently announced in these columns, will not take place.
