torpedo craft have so far modified the character or method of modern blockades and naval operations that the heavy battleships are no longer brought within reach of land batteries or into the danger zone of harbour-defence submarines, while attaining all of the ends of the blockading system of the years gone the " scout " and the " destroyer " are the eyes and ears of the present-day battle squadron, and with these restless watchers always on the alert, the big ships still affect the blockade of an enemy's ports while themselves hull down below the horizon. To meet these changed relations of attack and defence, under-water craft, to be at all effective, must be able to go to sea under well-nigh any circumstances of weather to hold their stations for days at a time off the ports they are defending to have much wider ranges of activity than heretofore; to have speeds under conditions nearly akin to total submergence, such as have not yet been secured in craft already built and to assure to their crews ,1 measure oi habitability such as will guarantei physical fitness and readiness for effective :

There has been, says the report, a slow but steady recover) from the effects of the epidemic of strikes of the years 1902 and 1004, and the exchange of produce between Marseilles and the United Kingdom appears to be on the increase. Great satisfaction is felt by the Marseilles Chamber of Commerce at the suggestion ol a possible adoption of the metric sytem b) the United Kingdom, which will certainly facilitate commercial operations between the respective countries. The strikes of 1904 had brought about a fall oi nearlj 250,000 tons in coal imports at Marseilles as compared with the preImports rose ceding year. The revival was slow. from 815,000 tons during 1004 to 840,000 tons during Of this total, British coal came in for 733,000 0105.

Business continues fairh active, hut. as stated in the ire paragraph, there is a pause in the placing oi new contracts. This no doubt is largely due to the depn ssi d state of speculation on the warrant market,

steadier tone is observable tills week in the local iron market, and some members of the trade saythat more buying is going on than at the end of last month. Prices remain fairl; steady. At two of the armour-manufacturing firms the contracts placed last year are being pushed on. and soon there will be ample work in the finishing shops. The other firms that did not share in those contracts are anticipating a good proportion of what are to be given out later on in connection with the new battleships and crui-i rs. Meanwhile the heavy machinery is being used in ling boiler and other plate- and similar work. The Government are at present withholding orders for guns, and are rather asking makers for suggest inns for improvements arid new- ideas.
