FOUR MIGHTY CRUISERS. I Two of the Drake class of armoured cruisers, have now completed their trials, the Good Hope and the Leviathan. The contract speed of this class of vessel is 23 knots, and the contract i.h.p. 30,000. The Good Hope made 23.05 knots on her eight hours' full-power run, whilst the Le- viathan has just made 23.2 knots on the same trials. The increase in speed in the Leviathan is due to some alteration that has been made in the pitch of her propellers. The two other cruisers of this class-the Drake and the King Alfred—are building, the former at Chatham Dockyard, the latter at Barrow-in-Fruness. Both are nearly ready to ,ndergo their trials. Perhaps the Good Hope may take part in the Coronation Naval Review.

AN INTERESTING CENSUS.
