PACIFIC COASTWISE.SHIPPING
WANTED BY GOVERNMENT FOR
TRANSPORTATION OF TRpOPS,
Another Million Tons Wanted At Once and Imports Are To
Be Cut Down To Essentials To ' ' . '
A i Provide Them
WASHlNGTONjTebruaiy 9-( Associated Press) Another million tons of American shipping
is to be-commandeered before' the. end of this month by the government, the greater part of this tonnage to
be obtained by taking into the goyemment service the shipping now engaged in coastwise trade or the Pa
cific and in the South American trade, j . . '
These ships are to be diverted to the Atlantic service in connection vith the transportation of troops
and supplies to France.
This was announced yesterday, 'following a second conference at the White House between the
President and Chairman Hurley o tHe Shipping Board, It had been foreshadowed by a statement on Mon
day that Chairman Hurley had urged the President to order a reduction upon imports, eliminating all non
essentials, and thus make possible the use of more shipping for military transport purposes.
The plan of Chairmaiv Hurley has now been formally adopted by the President, the announcement
; yesterday showing that the administfatibn has decided to go even further than the original proposal. Chair
i man Hurley suggested that all imports; be licensed and that the purchase abroad" of materials not essential
1 to the winning of the war be discouraged.' The plan as made public yesterday is to license both imports and
exportvo all kinds, and ta cut down irjipoits by one-half at least.
- This will permit the taking ovef of a large number of ships, while the transportation of freight along
coastwise runs in the Pacific wiU be" diverted to the railroads, thus liberating other ships for government use.
The licensing of imports and exports will become effective on February 28, at which time the com

Railroad Strikes Are Fomented
At Harvest Time To Prevent

WASHINGTON, February 9(Afcso
ciuted Pre) Indications that the
hirelings of Wilhelmstrasse are under
taking in Argentine a propaganda and
campaign similar o that which theyi
eoodurteil W'fhis oqVry before' fts
try into the war were to bo found in
the despatches which were received
last night from the Associated Press
cci respondent nt Buenos Aires. Theso
despatches told of the serious railroad
strikes thnt hnd been fomented and
brought uhont by Teuton pronngand
ists just nt the time for the havttiug
nnd movement of the groin cropn.
A general strike has been plled' of
the employes of the Central Cnrboda
Kttilwnv, the despatch said, and added
thnt it was expected that t?" enrp'royes
1 f two other railroirds would stnke to
day. Troops were being enl'ed out and
hnstilv nioliilized to guard the grain
fields.' I
It is tln impression here - that the
strit.es have been fomented for the
diodde purpose of keepin-f the people
I of Argentine so busy with tlie'r own
