During the past six months the steamers of the Cunard Line have carried no less than forty-four nationalities from European ports to New York, thus establishing a record, says an announcement by the Cunard Line Office. This is an evidence of the steamship company’s far reaching ramifications on the continent. Poles, Scandinavians, Italians and Russians are heavy patrons of the line, 422 of the latter nationality arriving on the “Berengaria” last week.

The incoming “Mauretania” has 191 Russians aboard. She also carries forty different nationalities. Offices of the line have been established at Kharkov, the capital of the Ukraine, the concession having been secured from the Soviet Government in order for the company to facilitate transportation from Russia.
