A PETKOL TORPEDO-BOAT. A torpedo-boat that can be font on hy rail to <he port v. h.'ve it is most required opens up pos- (ibilities which naval experts have never con- fcmiplated. On Monday morning the King wit- nessed a trial of the new motor Yarrow torpedo- b)at, one of the most extraordinary vessels that hive ever been placed on the Navv List. The idea of a boat drawing little water and ctpable of being navigated in shallow waters o'iginated with the Admiralty, who approved of tie scheme to make these ve-eh propelled by internal eombu.-tion in preference to steam. The new vessel carries two torpedoes, weighs 8 tons, and measures 60ft. in length and 9ft. in bi,eadth. Her horse-power is 300, and the ad- vtntage the petrol craft has over steam may be gauged from the fact that her range of effective- n(ss—i.e., the distance she can go without re- charging—is 600 miles, as against a steam ves- sels 10C. Apart from her enormous value as a method of river defence, there is a novel in- te'est in the possibility of torpedo-boats by pest."
