While Freights Fall Off
Depression prevails in both shipping!
and shipbuilding circles in Great Brit-,
; ccording to a review of the situa- '.
iade for the United States Ship- ;
v rtg Board, nod tho outlook for the '

grave concern. While costa of con-!
struction and operating continue at
high levels, fr? ights are Peking lower
"These conditions have naturally had j

the general market and a comparison

end of August, the conclusion
has be? rea ed that on the whole
? ? ipping resources of Great Brit
ave depreciated between 40 and
45 per cent. Other European countries
where values were much more inflated
pr;.?r to the collapse of the freight
market have experienced an even
greater degree of depreciation.
No Demand for Cargo Ships
"For all practical purposes it may
be said that there are no British buy?
ers in the market for general cargo
vessels to-day. Not only ?io they feel
the futility of adding to their present
fleets with values depreciating as they
are at the present time, but the fact
that the 'British, government during
the coming year will exact a (JO per
cent duty on excess profits is an addi?
"Certain British firms, particularly
those of th ? ' variety, are

The extraordinary price paid for the
tanker reflects the world-wide scarcity
of tanker tonnage and the resultant
fact that a tanker will command sev

market as will an ordinary cargo ves?
"Although the British demand for
cargo tonnage is practically dead," con?
tinues the report, "a number of fair
purchases are still being reported from
Continental countries. This fact can
be accounted for by two reasons pri?
marily firstly, Continental shipown?
ers, in most instances, are not subject
to the heavy excess profits tax which
has been levied upon British shipping
along with the other British indus?
tries; secondly, the Continental coun?
tries have not been able since the ar?
mistice to build up their depleted mer?
chant floe's to the same extent that
Britain has, and the volume of tonnage.
under their respective flags is still con?
siderably below pre-war figures.
Foreign Sales Restricted
"It. may also bo pointed out that
British ownei are distinctly handi?
capped in their attempts to sell new
tonnage to foreigners by the restric?
tion placed upon ales by the gov?
ernment. This restriction is not an
absolute prohibition against selling to
foreigners, but the sale of any vessel
under fifteen years of age must be
sanctioned by the Shipping Controller
before it can be consummated. During
the last eighteen months the Control?
ler has held a very strong check upon
the transfer of tonnage to other flags.
"Whether the present slump in Brit?
ish demand for shipping will iuduce a
change in this policy remains to be
seen. It can be said, however, that a
strong agitation is beiirg conducted for
the removal of these restrictions, so
that British owners may dispose of
their surplus tonnage while foreigners
arc- still willing to purchase at reason?
ably high prices."
The condition of British shipbuilding
is indicated by the statement that dur?
ing July and August not a single new
contract for the construction of a gen?
eral car?;?) steamer was reported. A
few contracts were reported, however,
for specialized types of steamers, pas?
senger carriers and tankers. The de
Jhand for tankers is said to be very
keen and th?"re is stated to be no doubt
that if the ways wore available a much
larger number of oil carriers would be

Ground in World's
( oal Export Trade
Now Selling Italy Greater
Quantity Than Britain;
English Strike May Give
Aid to American Shipping
While tho United States is gaininc.
ground in the world's coal export trade
there ?s still opportunity for a fai
greater expansion than has been accom
pushed thus far. < treat Britain is now
in a more difficult position than ever a:
regards coal production and the possi
bility of a complete shut-down of tin
mines opens up still greater prospect:
for this country.
An example of what can be done i:
furnished by the case of Italy, whicl
before the war was importing coal fron
England at the rate, of more than 800,
000 tons monthly. For the first si:
I months of this year her receipts o
coal from tho United Kingdom average*
300,000 tons monthly, while she im
ported from the United States an av
| orage of about 200,000 tons per montr
in June, however, 425,000 tons arrive
from this country, as compared wit
; 275.000 tons from the United Kingdon
? This is regarded by coal men as an ex
ample of how the American coal cxpot
trade can be built up, provided suffi
cient production can be attained.
With Great Britain exporting mor
than 75,000,000 tons a year before th
war and not in a position to expoi
more than about 20,000.000 tons thi
year, the situation contains great poss
bilities for American shipping in th
; way of supplying cargoes for America
1 vessels at a time when difficulty is b<
i ing experienced in securing freight.
If the threatened British coal strik
' becomes effective the new merchar
marine may benefit m another wa;
Because the greater part of Britis
.hipping uses coal for fuel, Britis
; vessels in British ports would be la:
; up indefinitely in case of a cessatio
of production. About 75 per cent of tl
| American sea-going fleet burns oil ar
? therefore would be: in a position to tal
up the carrying trade now performed t
! the British coal-burning steamers. ]
? the event of a prolonged strike, ther
fore, shipping men look for a great!
1 increased demand for American toi
nage, which would not only absorb tl
vessels now laid up for lack of cargoi
hut would probably cause a sharp ai
vanee in rates.
According to the National Coal A
sociation's publication, The Coal R
; view, Department of Commerce figur
"form a cold-fact denial of the gener
! indictment of the coal exporter on tl
! ground that he has been reapii
1 enormous profits." These figures, it
1 stated, show that the average price p
! ton at the ircnes of American bitumi
ous coal exported during the sev<
months of 1920 up to August 1 was ve
far below the price the exporters we
credited with getting. The artic
"The per ton value of American bit
minous coal exported during the fil
. .-even months of 1920, according to t
' department, was exactly $7.29. Th
wps the value of the ccal at the poi
where it left the United States. It i
eludes freight from the mines to t
; spot where the coal passed out of t
"Muring the seven months total sh
ments of coal overseas were 9,305,4
; tons. Upon this tonnage the depa
ment places ia value of $81,788,858,
per ton value' of $8.73. This figure a
includes freight from the mines to t
port of shipment.
"A conservative average of 1
! freight rate would he not less than
: per ton. Using this low figure as
: basis of computation, the f. o. b m
.value of all bituminous coal sent ov
: seas from January to July inclusivi
a period when the world wanted c
as" never before and bidders fr
i abroad begged coal at almost any pr
from American producers ? was $o
per ton, far below what Great Brit
'. is charging.
"Measured by the grand total
American exports, the volume of c
exported from the United States is
??? rtcant. During the seven mon
American exnorts ran up to the hi
valuation of $4,799,959,170.The va
of coal exports was ?>1 c?J le.ts?h, or l
' than 2Vs per cent of all exports.

Mills and Selling Agents
Watching Retail Clothing
Tension in Market Is Par?
ticularly High at Present
Because Producers Must
Look So Far Ahead
Woolen and worsted mill owners,
their .soiling agenta and manufacturers
of clothing in general hv anxiously
watching the developments in the re- j
tail clothing situation this fall for
sonir facts that, will enable them to
map out their merchandise policy for
(???xi spring. Because the cloth manu?
facturers must work from eight. t?> nine
months ahead of the retail trade on
seasons '.he tension in the cloth mar?
kets is particularly high at present.
The market opened spring Fabrics
lasl month at reductions averaging
around 210 per cent, but so far the
volume of business booked has not
been encouraging. The centering of
! ?he publi?''s attention on price reduc
lions has served to furthei demoralize
the market and leading ?-elimo agents
now agree th.it the future of the in
dustry cannot be safely estimated until
?Hie public has made some response to
the offerings of fall clothing. So far
? the weathei has been against the trade
and the buying "f new clothing from
necessity bas not been evident.
Unless public response is large, sie?
. r.ifying a need for clothing and a will?
ingness to buy it at prices base?! on a|
: reasonable prollt i''ir the cloth and
| clothing manufacturer.-, and the retail
\ ers, the outlook for a revival of acth -
j i'y in the woolen and worsted Industry
is slight, according to a prominent
mill owner, who asserted yesterday
that fully half of the weaving ma-1

The demand for bank and bankers'
acceptances has slowed up during the
last month in response to the demand
on large city bank, for floating large
loans and financing the movement of
! crops, hut is showing signs of increas
? ing, now that s? me of the financing and
| marketing of farm products is out of
? the way. Within the last ten day?.
j according to a statement by the Amor
j ican Acceptance Council, buying of ac
? ceptances by New York and out-of
; town banks has increased.
While credit conditions are becom?
ing easier, commercial paper rates re?
main at the old figures of 8 per cent
for the best known names and from
'4 to v2 per cent more for names lio?
so well known. Xo change was noted
yesterday in bankers' acceptance rates.

Silks Remain -Quiet
Tone of Market Said To Be
Quiet continues to prevail in the
local raw silk market, according to II.
L. Gwalter & Co.'s weekly report, with
business largely of a hand-to-mouth
character atid mill owners holding off
purchasing new supplies of raw ma?
terial ponding developments in the
"At the same time, however," con?
tinues the report, "the tone of the
market is decidedly improving, and the
protective measures taken recently in
Japan are doing much to restore con?
fidence in all branches of the trade. A
fair business cont ?es : be d
Canton new s? y le silks, which are at

"ill Yokohama market is quiet but.
steady on the basis of last quotations.
A fair demand continues for low grades
for European consumption, but no
business is reported for American ac?
count. Shipments to date amount to
53,000 bales, of which 40,000 bale.-- went
to .America and 13,000 to Europe, Eu?
rope showing a gain of 11,000 bales,
while American shipments are 36,500

Declines in Lumber
Reductions Since .March 15
Show Wide Range
Contradicting the contention that
artificially high prices of lumber are
preventing a revival of genera: build?
ing, Lumber, a St. Louis pub,.,, n
devoted to the lumber markets, has
prepared a list of prices for March 15
and October 1, this year, showing
declines that have taken place in the
majority o| woods that, enter i-ato
construction work. In the table, the
largest declines have been made in
yellow niiu-, with No. 1 common boards,
10 to 20 feet, down 38 per cent, the
largest drop recorded in the table. Pint
grain flooring shows a decline of 36
per cent, 2x4s 20 per cent and No. 2
common roofers, Ml per cent. Long ?
timbers, 12x12, show the smallest re?
duction in the yellow pine division, 3
North Carolina pine is down Is to
33 1-3 per cent, Douglas fir as nrtich
as -'iG per cent and red cedar shing e
from about ;10 to 50 per cent.
The declines in hardwoods have been
less marked. Quartered white oak is
down 2? tier cent, red gum and poplar
slightly iess. Kara maple has advanced
from $135 to $140. < hestnut and bass
wood remain at former quotations,
white oak flooring has declined slight!;,'
and clear maple flooring has been ;.?!
vanced about >', per cent. Redwood,
cyprus and Adirondack spruce have
advanced in most cases less than (i
per cent, while spruce lath shows a
decline of 39 net- cent.
Shoe Manufacturers Remain

Utter indifference to prices i the
main feature of the attitude of ?-hoe
manufacturers toward the leather mar?
ket at. pres< n ? Pr ce quotation - by

Tanners themselves- are pursuing
much the same policv toward the hid?
market. Some tanners who were
hopeful of the future some weeks ago
and ha?l begun preparations for
creasing their production are now
planning to curtail their proc
?operations. It is est mated thai the

?Says Jewelry Trade
is in Strong Position
Jewelry merchants and gem
dealers in both the manufactur?
ing and retailing ends of the
business who have been conserva?
tive in their operations during the
last few months are in excellent
shape at present, according to Lee
Reichman, of Reichman Brothers,
one of the largest firms of dia?
mond merchants in this country.
"Business has slowed down to
some extent," he said yesterday,
"but the retailers aro selling
goods in fair volume. The
trouble in the trade at present
arises from the comparison of
this year's business with that of
last year, which was abnormal.
Those who are skeptical of pres?
ent prices should have been as?
sured by the recent cablegram to
this country from the Breitmeycr
Diamond Syndicate, the De Beers
organization, which controls 9.">
per cent of the world"s output of
diamonds, to the effect that no
reduction in prices is contem?
plated. Even though the pur?
chasing power of the country may
be decreased through some unem?
ployment, birthdays, holidays and
other occasions will not cease and
they will he celebrated as usual
by gifts of jewelry."'
of the program will be taken up with
the "United Waist League Review."

women connected with the blouso in?

Two More Trade Suits
J. A. Migel, Inc., silk nanufacturers,
yesterday announced the tiling of two
.. suits against Smith & Kaufmann,
for infringement of patent and unfair
competition, Migel sued Smith ?ft Kauf?
mann some time ago, alleging unfair
? competition and asking for an injunc?
tion against the latter, restraining
them from manufacturing and selling
fabrics in imitation of Migel's trade
marked and patented "Fari-ta-si" silk.
Judge Mant?n ruled that Migel was
1 not entited to the injunction on the
j grounds of unfair competition. Suits
j will now be pressed on the charge of
.violating the 'intent and also in appeal
I frcm Judge Manton's decision.
Gray Goods inactive
The open market for gray or un?
finished goods has been inactive all
k, witn prices weakening until they
have again reached the low levels of
the year, first struck a few weeks ago.
rhe low ??rices, of course, are named
only by second hand holders, mills be?
ing unwilling to accept new business at
??i r.i?' of the levels set by the second
hands. The amount of offerings by
converters and printers is said to be
decreasing in view of the fact that
losses on goods in hand can be reduced
- to some extent by finishing goods,
rather than selling them in the gray
