Boston, June 10.—The liner Leviathan
sailed this after|oon on her trial trip
to Southern waters with several hundred ■
guests of the shipping board. Thick •
weather deprived persons on the main- '
land who hat! trained their glasses on
iter anchorage in the lower harbor, of
the opimrtunity of seeing her departure,
but shipping board officials gave word ,
she had • started at the set time.
Great Liner Starts Voyage.
Boston, Mass., June 18,—Tlu> Levis- 1
than, the world's largest liner, rebuilt
and refurnished at a cost of $ 5.200.000.
is.ready with steam up (p sail on her
trial trip to Cuba tomorrow. With tings
(tying Mid whistles blowing -he great
shill will steam dovn the harbor with 200 ]
guests of the United States Shipping '
Bo.Krd. on one (f the most luxurious 1
trips "ver made. 1
tin her return she will go i it<> the 1
regular trafis-Athiiitic trade, starting 1
July ith from Ntw York to Cherbourg '
and Southampton. Six days will be tak- 1
eu for a crossing, and a round trip will
be nuide every three weeks. Aoootnmoda- 1
tions for the 3,4<X> passengers will cost
from $5,000 for the so-called royal suite
down to SOS or SIOO for the third-class
First-class will be from $275 up and .
second-class from $l4O up.
The liner, which lay rusting away for
two years after its service'as a transport,
when it carried 200,000 doughboys across
the Atlantic, is now furnished in a style
surpassing that of the most sumptuous
hotel. ' Designers, interior decorators,
architects and artists have done their
utmost to make the former Vaterlaud so
delightful that passengers will lorget ->r
forgive the fact that she carries no bar.
There is a whole series of suites which
surpass the single "royal apartments" of
other large liners. Each one was de
signed and decorated separately. There
is no uniformity. Colors are dignified
and restful, a change from the white and
gold of the old type of state cabin. The
walls are soft grays anil tans, pomegran
ate and beige. Carpets have been woven
in exact imitation of ancient oriental
designs, and the walls are hung with re
productions of old masterpieces.
Instead of the rough cramped
close together, which served the dough
boys on their way to France, are large
bedrooms furnished in harmonious col
or combination, with twin beds, window
curtains, tapestry covered furniture and
thick carpets. There is nothing left to
bring back to memory the days when
the ship, looking strauge under its cam
ouflage, sped stealthily out of the har
bor lying low in the water with her
weight of human freight.
A ltitz-CSrlton restaurant will serve
those who prefer not to enter the com
mon dining saloon, which itself is far
beyond that of the' ordinary ship in
splendor. Also, cabins can be obtained
with private breakfast rooms.
A tea room furnished in Queen Anue.
with old English color prints by Morland
and others, will serve as a retreat dur
ing, the hot part of the late afternoon
when the guests have come up from the
tiled swiumiiugiwiol. An orchestra will
furnish music for those who want to
dance, while others can go to the oak
paneled smoking room, large and cool,
with' comfortable armchairs and iced
drinks, lemonade and soda. Here cards
and making up a pool on the-day’s run
will occupy the time until dinner.
Those who go to the Ritz-Curlton will
find a restaurant furnished in the style
of the Empire. All the woodwork iis of
carved mahogany, the ornameuts of cuf
metal in a dullold gold finish, the chair
coverings of plum color and old gold.
Under all this magnificence, this quiet
luxury, are the great turhinegf oil burn
ers of 00.000 normal horsepower and an
emergency horsepower of 100,000. There
are four shafts, working at 248 poundß
pressure from 40 boilers, 124 ventilating

PRINCESS MAUD’S FIANCE. (
Lord Cornegie to Wed the Princess Maud 1
Niece' of King George. 1
London, ilune 19.-—Lord Carnegie. '
who is to figure as bridegroom in the |
third of the series of royal weddings. '
when he leads to the altar the Princess
Maud, niece of King George, is now ill |
his thirtieth year. In 1914 he attained 1
bis majority while serving against the *
Germans in France with his regiment,
the Scots Guards in which he hold a 1
commission *as eaptjWm Since the close '
of the war he spent two years in India f
as aide-de-camp to the Viceroy. Lord 1
Carnegie is the eldest and heir of- the
Kali of Southesk, chief of the great
Scotch clan of Carnegie, to which the 1
late Andrew Carnegie, the American I
steel master, alsdl belonged. J
The relations between the highland >
chieftain and his retainers were very t
intimate in ancient times; so much so
that ail assumed the patronymic of )
their lord. The family name of the Earl i
of Southesk is Charles Noel Carnegie. f
and besides being Earl of Southesk he t
is also Lord Carnegie, by virtue of the I
peerage created in Scotland by .Tames
IVI. just before he succeeded to the i
throne of England as James 1.. in 1
recognition of his devotion to Mary ■'
Queen of Scots. *
The present' Earl, while a cultured >
and agreeab'e man. has not succeeded <
kji far in achieving any of the distinc
tion in art letters and science which
others of his family have won.
His father, the late Earl, was very ■
well known in America as Sir .Tames
Carnegie, six baronet of that creation.
He traveled extensively in the United
States and Canada, and wrote several ’
books about America at a time when it 1
was less familiar to Europeans than- it 1
He was a great favorite of Queen
V ictorhi. through whose good will he ob
tained a reversal of the parliamentary '
attainder of his family honors, and thus i
became Earl of Southesk. The peerages >
had attained when the fifth Earl sided
with the Stuarts in 1715. He died with
out issue, and his next heir and third
cousin, David Carnegie, managed, b.v *
means of valuable services to the Han- i
overian dynasty, especially iu America,
to recover the ancestral estate of his
house and to win a baronetcy. David
Carnegie's grandson and namesake, tiie
fourth baronet, married the daughter of
Andrew Elliot, who was Lieutenant i
governor of New York. The youngesr
son of the second baronet. George
Carnegie, took part in the Jacobite ris
