LONDON, April 2.—The White Star liner Titanic, which has just been completed by Harland &. Wolff, left Belfast harbor this morning and proceeded to Belfast Lough, where the compasses were adjusted and speed trials took place over a measured mile with excellent results.

Later she left for Southampton, from which port she sails on April 10 on her maiden voyage to New York with a large passenger list.
