Thousand Tons of Carriers

NEW YORK, June 1 The interest
of local raw sugar circles was largely
' centered last
week in the announce
in Washington stating
ttients issued
that the shipping board had withdrawn
approximately 40,000 tona of dead
weight shipping from the West Indies
sugar carrying trade, Facts About
Sugar reports. This decision on the
part of thfi board was not wholly un
expected, as at the close of last week
rumor was rife that such a step was
contemplated.
Ten Snips To Be Withdrawn
From an authorised source Facts
Abbot Rngar has ascertained that ten
ships are to be withdrawn- as sugar
curriers aad assigned to the military
rnipply transportation ' service. The
withdrawal of this 40,000 ton! of ship- '
ping will reduce the combiner! tonnage
of the sngsr fleet to abowrT70,0(H9 tons
and should still permit the' movement
daring June of approximately 300,000
tons of raw, and.' perhaps more, from
West Indian shipping ports td domes
tic refining points.'
' The withdrawal of tsTis tonnage,
while it cannot y any means be con
sidered otherwise than in onfgvorable
development, will nut necessarily in
volve any serious falling off in raw
supplies for the present. If the present
augar carrying tonnage is not further
depleted next month to meet military
exigencies, the weekly volume of raw
receipts will very" nearly equal the
weekly meltings of Eastern and South
ern refineries, and it effect ori refined
snppiies Will be negligible for the
present. The slowing op in receipts,
however, will be shown in the refiners'
stocks of raws on band, which at the
present time' total only slightly above
one week 's meltings.
May Movement Not Affected "
The loss of the ten ships taken over
by t)ie shipping board this week wilt
not affect, the total Mar shipment of
raws, and the outlook still remains ex
ceedingly bright for the movement of
approximately 325,000 tons during the
month.
