ported to have-been built for Norweg

The veil pf secrecy spread over he
movements Of British Vessels is now
more effective than ever before and
at the request of British owners, the
agencies - with whom they deal have
ceased to give Out any information re
garding the arrival and departure of
their ships. r ."'
i his applies to Honolulu aa well , as
to New Xork. tor some time all mes
sages recoivod by local agents of Brit
ish ships eoneernine their arrival 'in
port, their time and their needs, have
been signed 'by the eaptaias. If the
agency did not recognise the captain "
name, it orten has a dimoult time as
certaining what ship was actually com
ing; in some eases it has not found out
until the ship arrived. ' . "
The1 New fork Maritime Register
has censed, probably because unable to
ine information, to post British ves
sels due to leave' eastern' ports, al
though this list bas been an established
custom for years. ' It Is still continued,
but as regarding American and neutral
hips only. It still carries, ia its move
ments column, however, the destination
of the ship after it sails, and it bas
now listed between foot and ve Brit
ish vessels 'Which are likely to eaU here
for bunkers withia the next twentv
days, t ',... .-..'.., - . .
As the British vessels are now equip
ped with wireless, the local agents have
been able to learn In advance the ex
act date of arrival of most of them.
This has been (riven confidentially to
the harbot officials.. ' V .
