Views of Business Men To Be Se
cured ToDetermine.UnesUp
on Wiich: Work Is Needed
WASHINOTON, ay 2ft t Appelat
ed PresaJ The.- business public has
been , asked by the department of com
merce to assist in carrying out a, radi
cal revision and- extension of the gov
ernment 's foreign trade statistical c las
ajflcstien which haa been undertaken
ty the bureau of foreign and domestic
Commerce. ' ,
' , Immediate suggestions are wanted aa
to new classes of goods that ought to
be shown ia the statistics or new sub
divisions of the- present elasses.
The immediate object of the revis
ion, it the furnishing of more detailed
anf .accurate information for the war
boards engaged in. licensing imports
and. exports, conserving; tonnage, food
stuffs and ram materials. It is (Sec
retary Redfleld'e idea, however, that
the statistics should he of the largest
permanent value to the nation's for
eign trade after the war, which is why
the views of business men generally
are being sought to indicate the liner
on which the revision should be carried
out.
"In making suggestions for the ex
port classification," the bureau of for
eign and domestic commerce announced,
"the business men should bear ia mind
that the statistici are based on tbe
description of merchandise as shown ia
export declarations, filed by the ship
por with the collector of customs at the
port of clearance. A too detailed elatv
eification going beyond commonly used
commercial terms most therefore be
avoided. Likewise, suggestions regard
ing imports should be made with due
regard to the fact that statistici of
imports follow the tariff classification
ami that subdivisions for statistical
purposes lieyond customs requirements
are difficult to obtain and are apt. to
result in inaccurate and niialeading
figures."
The tariff commission, the food ad
ni nistration, the war trade board, tbe
slipping board and other war bureaus
re cooperating in the effort to obtain
. more detailed classification and will
.ake measures to insure compliance
with the official classification.

f ONDOM, May. 20 (Associ-
ft- atefl'.rcfss) In Irelaritl the
situation was, quiet yesterday, and
last night after the arrest of hun
dreds of Sinn Feiners and other
radical agitators. At the confer
ence of the Irish Nationalist party
called by -Dillon, their leader in
parliament the situation was con
sidered and later Dillon issued a
manifesto in which are set forth
alleged cause for grievance which
the Irish are claimed to have and
blame is attached to the British
government for the passage of
the Man Power Law and for the
making of wholesale arrests of
Sinn Feiners which are declared
to be a part of a plan of intimida
tion to enforce conscription.
Commenting on the Irish situ
ation The Observer, says : "A
grave step has been .taken by the
British. government in the makiug
of arrests by the hundreds who
have been taken into custody but
thcr,e were reasons just as grave
that warranted the action.
. ' ''Professor de Valera and other
extremists have been arrested
because it has been found that
once more they have put them
selves in treasonable touch, with
the enemy. They.have done this
in-'pite of the, lenient treatment
they received after the last out
break in Dublin when revolt and
sabotage prevailed. ,
."We hope thjjt the President
and the people of , the United
States will not be misled by the
manifesto which has been issued
by Dillon, and let their sympathies
for the Irish in the persecutions
which he alleges blind their rea
son to the necessity and the j list -iv
t of the course which has been
pursuedi"
Seventy-three Sinn Feiners de
parted hastily for Wales on Sat
urday night, is reported in a, Dub
lin despatch to the Central News
Agency. They boarded a ship at
Kingstown and sailed lor Holy
head. Arrest of Coiinl l'lmikctt. mem
ber of parliament from Roscom
mon is also reported from Dub
lin. The same despatch says
that all is now quiet in that city.
