NEWS OF HAWKER Sighted Half Way Across With the arrival at Liverpool on Fri- day of the Harrison liner Tactician from "New York came the first authentic news iof Mr. Hawker and Commander Mac- fcenzie-Grieve since they left St. John's, Newfoundland, on Sunday evening on their gallant attempt to fly the Atlantic in their Sopwith—Rolls-Royce biplane «(says the "Daily Mail.") The Tactician's wireless operator je- ports that while in mid-Atlantic on Monday morning he intercepted the fol- lowing message which was being sent cut broadcast Dy the cable repairing steamer ^Faraday Red light of aeroplane sighted at 4.1 a.m. G.M.T., on i&th instant, in position 50 degrees 28 minutes North latitude and 30 degrees 2 minutes West longtitude." HALF-WAY ACROSS. I This means that at hve o clock (British I summer time) on Monday morning Mr. llawker was, after 10 hours' flying, ap- proximately in mid-Atlantic, fully PuO miles on a diract course between St. John's, Newfoundland, and Galway, Ire- land, and 100 miles north of the main steamer iane. The same message was intercepted by the Leyland liner Ninian en route from Liverpool to New York. Both these vessels were far north of the usual route at this time of the year, and this 1.,0 doubt is the reason why the Faraday's message was not delivered to the shore stations. A FUTILE SEARCH.

American competition, already great, is oonsidered likdy to increase, competi- tion from Switzerland is also anticipated on a big ecale, and the proposed working arrangement would enable these British firms more effectively to meet it. The capital will be £ 2,500.000 in El shares-
