Charles W. Summerflold, secretary of

alms of tho movemont will bo to havo
goods made In Philadelphia sold from
Philadelphia Instead of other cities. Phila

they aro known all over tho world, un
fortunately are not known as the products

merfleld added, "that so many wares
made here aro marketed from other cities.
Some arrangement must bo made to sell

"This movement for exploiting our In

should display Philadelphia as the
'world's greatest workshop,' but it should
strive to focus tho attention of the
world as well on Philadelphia as a mar
ket. "Philadelphia's ability to take com
plete advantage of Its opportunities re
sulting from llnanclal. Industrial and com
mercial power," Mr. Summerfleld con
cluded, "is not thoroughly understood or
appreciated even by our own people. We
should be more outspoken ln praise of
our greatness. Then not only our own
people, but the outside world as well
will begin to realize what Philadelphia
can do and what we stand for,"

at the dinner continue to arrive, and the

NEW XOltK, Jan. 25. Experts In In
ternational law who are familiar with
the attempts of the American copper In
terests to obtain from Great Britain tho
release of more than $5,000,000 worth of
American copper now Interned at various
European ports by the British Admiralty,
believe that a crisis Is rapidly approach
ing, and that the long controversy must
soon be settled. John Uassclt Moore,
formerly counselor to the Department of
State, the foremost American authority
on International and admiralty law, has
been retained by flvo of the largest cop
per companies to push a series of
charges now before thn State Depart
ment thnt Great Britain Is deliberately
throttling tho American copper Industry,
which, the companies say, amounts to
more than J107.CO0.000 a year.
The companies participating In the no
tlon aro the American Smelting and Re
fining Company. The United Motnls Sell
Ing Company, Tho American Metal Com
pany, L. Vogelsteln & Co., and The Nor
folk Smelting and Kenning Company
They have drawn up a scries of 14 specific
charges which set forth:
31 SHIPMENTS SEIZED.
First. Since tho outbreak of the war and
until the first of tho year, 31 shipments
of American copper consigned to neutral
Continental ports of Europe, amountiiiB
to 19,359 tons nnd vnlued at to,500,000, have
been seized by Great Britain, 0300 tons be
ing held at Gibraltar. The rest wns In
tended for Holland nnd tho Scandinavian
Second. American owners consented to
sell and did sell the British Government
four small lots of copper at a loss of
JS0.000 because of forced sale.
Third. That-ln the face of many pro
tests, Secretary Bryan has not obtained
tho release of a vessel.
Fourth. In every case the Stato De
partment has been supplied with full
Fifth. America annually exports 316,000
tons of copper, at a value of HOi.SSO.OOO,
and the British Admiralty will permit
shipments to the neutral countries only
through a British agent.
Sixth. That the regulations Imposed by
tho British Government have enabled a
small group of British agents to dominate
all America's foreign copper markets ana
that this group la levying a toll of 1 per
cent, on every ton exported irom tnis
Seventh. Through complying with the
res-ulattons of the British Government,
exporters are unable to ship copper to
neutrals, although those Governments
have prohibited the re-exportation of the
Eighth. Shipments of copper, fit only
for being converted Into copper sulphate
for spraying grapo vines, have not been
allowed to reach Italy, though shipped
direct to that countri.
Ninth. This material Is permitted to
move freely. If British agents aro per
mitted to handle it
Tenth. British agents are taking a toll
of J1.10 a ton on all copper embargoed by
UNITED STATES COPPER INDUSTRY
Eleventh. Tho copper production In this
country has been reduced by 30 per cent.,
and more than a million persons have
been thereby seriously affected, many
being deprived of a means of livelihood.
Twelfth. That tho contention by Great
Britain that the Increased shipments of
American copper to neutral countries
since the outbreak of the war means that
Germany is getting this copper. Is based
on the flimsiest reasons, but thnt the
fact Is that the neutral countries aro
using this copper to manufacture articles
formerly made only In Germany.
Thirteen. That Great Britain Is permit
ting large shipments of her own coal to
these same neutrals and that cool Is con
traband. Fourteen. That the result of the Ad
miralty regulations has been to make
cargo bottom rates prohibitive and to
reduce the trade In non-contraband
metals between American ports and
Senator Walsh, of Montana the sec
ond largest State In point of copper pro
duction In a speech In the Senate, when
referring to the same question, declared
that Premier Asqulth In Parliament No
vember 17 last expressed the opinion that
tho Increase In the exports of coal from
Great Britain to Scandinavian countries
was not so much due, and Indeed was
"not due at all," to their "being ultimately
destined to Germany as to the fact that
these countries were deprived for the
time being of the supplies they have been
accustomed to receive from the enemy
