WASHINGTON. Aug. 11. Tho
nnvy department for the lanl few dayn
has been holding conforonccH with
leprosentallvca of the ohlpyurd
workers' unions, and It wan ru
rnored hero that on Increaso In
wages was to ba made
Iteeently tlm navy yards have
rjono Into competition with tho pri
vately owned shipyards to get re
pair work on merchant Milps and
tho former German liner Georga
Washington wan taken from Now
York to the Iloston navy yard to ba
reconditioned as a passenger liner
r for tho I'nltcd States Mall Steam
In regard to tho attltudo of tho
navy department, Max Lowe, sec
retary of the New York section of
the Atlantic roast shlplMillilers' as
sociation, gavo out tho following
"Manufacturing plants as well as
ihlpyards aro greatly disturbed over
the report that the navy department
has under consideration tho subject
of raising tho wages In tho navy
yards Tho private sntpyards havo
taken tho stand that the wages paid
hy tho navy yards aro amplo at tho
present time, , particularly In view
of tho bonus of 76c per day now
paid nil navy yard workmen over
and abovo their regular wage, tho
30-day vacation ram year with pay,
pay for all holidays and for Batur
day afternoons during June, July
Of and August when tho workmen do
not work. Special rates aro given
to foremen. The shipyards believe
that an Increaso In wages In tho
navy yards will Impose a corrc
unending Increaso In tho prlvnte
Hhlpynrds and result In a substan
tial loss due to tho tncreaso In tho
cost of ships now under oonirtruc
tlon for private owners, based on
tho presont wage schedules, It will
Place thorn tinder a handicap moro
serious than that endurod now In
competition with foreign shipyards.
Shipyards ore paylnng tho highest
wages that are being paid to me
chanics In any manufacturing In-,
dustry. If men will work steadily1
in tho shipyards their returns aro
far In excess to tho demand of tho
present cost of living.
"In anticipation of the proposed
raise In wagos of the navy yards,
labor unions are now presenting
demands to private shipyards for
an lncroAHi In wages, with threats
of striken to enforco them. Tho
proposed action of tho navy depart
ment has already commenced to up
set the shipbuilding Industry at a
time when every effort Is being
made to conserve this Industry as
ona oc tho basic factors In main
taining a successful and an ado-
nuato merchant marine.
"Shipbuilding touches almost
every other mechanical Industry,
Including the manufacture of boil
ers, electrical equipment, transmis
sion machinery, and foundry prod
ucts. Manufacturers In theso In
dustries feel that their plantu will
also bo affected by any Increase In
the navy yards. All manufacturing
plants In tho vicinity of navy yards
will oe subject to agitation and un
rest followed by cessation In work
In tho event that tho navy yards
Increase their wages."
Many Reports Show Con
OKLAHOMA City, Aug. 11. Tho
United States bureau of crop es
timates and the state board of ag
riculture report crop conditions
during July an exceptionally good.
It Is usual In thin state for the
average condition or crops to fall
S per cent between July 1 and
August 1, but this year thero has
Docn a, deterioration of only z per
cent. Toward the clown of the
month, parts of tho north and
south thirds of tho tto boc-uno
too dry for many of tho crops and
efficient plowing was made Imprac
ticable. Duo to tho excellent con
dition of soil after tho harvest of
small grains, and also to the grow
ing understanding of tho value of
early plowing, a much greater urea
has been plowed or listed than Is
common at this time.
The preliminary rnlmato on yield
per aero of winter vrhcut Is 18 bush
els, denoting that tho Oklahoma
(roil Is upwards of 4U.000.00 ) Inlith
els. The best jieMs occurred In
the southwest, west and north dis
tricts In tho order given and the
poorest In the northeast which had
suffered considerably from Insect
and fungus. Uist year tho yields
were bct In tho southwest, south
and east districts. Inquiry among
our correspondents discloses that
fully CO per cent of tho wheat farm
ers aro provided with storage fa
cilities; also that In tho north,
northwest and west districts, where
most of tho farmers ro owners, al
most 70 per cent have means to
properly tako earo of their grain.
Whereas In 191J tho quality of
wheat cm J 7 per cent of normal,
that threshed no far this year la
testing H per cent.
The condition of com up to late
In July was very murh better than
tho lfr-year average and practically
the satno as orf Jury 1. Since tho
beginning of August dry weather
has hurt late corn considerably- -murh

Tho oats harvest had been prac
tically completed early In July and
much of the crop Is threshed. The
best ylilds aro found In the south
west, west and center districts, Tho
quality of tho grain is proving bet
ter than that of I nut year.
Orsln soightims have also con
tinued In better condition during
July than Is usual. Thn 10-year
average condition on July !, Is ZZ
Per cent; on August I, 76 per cent.
This year tho condition on July 1,
wa SS per rent, and 87 per cent
on August 1.
Tho broonicorn hasvert has pro
gressed rapidly In the southern sec
tions. The first bmcs In Lindsay

of July Tho condition of tho crop
deteriorated somewhat during July,
yet not nearly as much as Is usual
at this tlmn of tho year
Tlie condition of cotton shows a
marked Improvement oer tho June

upwards of n million hales. In
fart, no year since statehood hnn
shown such a pronounced advance.
This year Is very stmllnr to 1919
