WASHINGTON: November

Many hundreds of thousands of
tons will soon, be added to Atner
ican shipping facilities on the At
lantic and some to the Pacific as
a result of - negotiations which
closed yesterday. to the entire sat

. and the government officials who
have been conducting them. An
nouncement of the gratifying
news was made yesterday.
'., After weeks of negotiation,' it
' was announced yesterday, details

as a result of which Japan, Nor

mark will add hundreds of thou
sands of tons to American ship

building raised so. that it would
be possible for it to complete its
program for the construction ' of
new ships. .- Every mission which
has been sent , to the United

has put forward-requests of that
nature. .Almost daily the Japan
ese minister has been in consul
tation with .cabinet officers or
commission heads on the, subject
Ishii worked assiduously . to se
cure it and was. blamed bjj most
of the newspapers of, his home

will get the steel which is re-
- quired for the completion of the
cherished shipbuilding campaign
and her. ship yards need not, be
closed as it was forecast .they
would have to. be.-, ; . ,
On the other hand Japan fur
nishes to the United States ships
.' for the Atlantic' and shipping fa
cilities on the Pacific which go far
. to solve serious problems. .
' i Ever' since the embargo rules
went into effect the Northern Eu
rope neutrals have been clamor

plies and insisted that these were
t necessary for their own consump

QUFFALO, November 13
U (Associated Press) To win
the war is th only way to secure
a peace that will, last fur more
than a few1 minutes, was one of
the most pointed assertions made
by President Wilson yesterday In
the course of a stirring address
which he delivered at the openirig
session ot the convention of the
American Federation of Labor.-
The President , was received
with wild acclaim by the labor
delegates when ; he entered the
convention hall cheering contin
uing for several minutes, rising
and falling and resembling th
founds that follow j the nomina
tion of a candidate for president
in one of the great national poli
tical conventions. But here poli
tics were entirely absent. It way
not Woodrbw Wilson who wa
bqing greeted but the President
of the United States. It was mor
(he office than the man.
During the course of his speech
Wilson was'i repeatedly interrupt
ed and haP to await the end of
prolonged applause and cheeri
which . his ''pertinent and , '"pithy
sentences adduced.
"While we are fighting for the
freedom of the world we must not
fail to see that labor is also set
free from kany shackles whicl
may bind and hamper its prog
ress," said the President early ir
'lis speech. ."We must see; that
none of thie . ' instrumentalitiet
through which: our,' labor condi
tions may, be improved are block,
sd or checked." .
Touching less directly buj
rlearly indicating his reference tt
strikes and to lockout' Wilsot.
9aid: "Nolxdy has a ngiik to stof
the processes of labor, to check
Its' natural and its riecesary pro
duction until all methods1 thai
may be employed to bring about
v conciliation, to heal differences,
to produce a settlement r shall
have been, exhausted." v , " 1
..Coming to tke question of wa'
and peace he said : 'My Heart i?
with the feeling which moves tht
pacifists. I also hate war and lovt
peace, but while my heart is witt
them in that feeling my mind ha?
onlv contemot for them and for
their policies and methods of rea

"We have sent Colonel House
and hisfellow conferees to Eu

that has been called to determine
how this great war shall be won
Now he knows as well as I know
that this' is the only way to get
a peace if you want that peace to
last more than a few minutes
That is something the . mind of
the pacifist seems to be Unable tc
p-raso. To Win the wr is the
only way to- win a lasting and a
substantial peace." ':
v Wilson warmly praised Samuc!
Gomipers rin the course of his
speech, complimented organized
labor upon having so strong a

;The Chief point of objection Which
Chiha raises to the agreement is the
recognition of Japan having . special

is that there should be no special rights
