LOCAL INTEREST IN
ARRIVAL OF AVIATORS
Vhen it comes to keeping a secret,
Uncle Sam is right on the job, for
close friends of Lieut. Diechman only
yesterday called up the navy yard and
wanted "to speak to Lieut." Diechman
if he was at leisure." Thus the ca
ble to the Associated Press will be
the first general information of the
arrival in France of the aviators, four
of whom are widely known in Pensa
cola from having spent months here.

A British Port, June 8. Major Gen
eral John J. Pershing and his staff
arrived here this morning after an
uneventful trip. All the members of
his party were in good health and
spirits. Their ship was escorted into
port by American destroyers.
A hearty welcome was extended to
the Americans by official representa
tives of the admiralty, the war office
and the municipal authorities. The
war office has assigned a brigadier
general of the P.ritish army as aide
to General Pershing. , He took up his
duties with the commander in chief
as soon as the latter reached here.
The formal welcome to the Ameri
cans on the landing stage was a stir
ring scene. A guard of honor com
posed of royal Welsh fusilliers was
drawn up at the landing, with a regi
mental band. After General Per
shing had been introduced to the
military officer in command of the
port, he inspected the guard of honor,
while the band played "The Star
The only civilians who met Genercl
Fershing were representatives of
American press associations and news
papers. General Fershing said to
the Associated Tress:
"Thp trip has been delightful, par
ticularly the latter stages, when we
were escorted through the danger
zone by our own destroyers- Speak
ing for myself and my staff, we are
glad to be the standard bearers of
America in this great war for Y,r
ization. The opportunity
at British port, and tiie welcome we
received arc very significant and are
deeply appreciated. We expect m the
course of a very short time to be
playing our part, which, I am confi
dent, will be a very big part, on the
General Pershing and his staff pro
ceeded toward London. Before leav
ing the steamer, the General thanked
the captain and crew for their cour
tesies during the voyage.
The Pritish delegation which wel
comed the Tershing party on board
the deck of the liner consisted ot Kear
Admiral Stileman, Lieutenant Gen
eral Sir William Fitcairn Campbell,
and the lord mayor of Liverpool. The
ship docked at U o clock. !
After the band had played the
American national anthem it rendered
"God Save the King," all present
standing at salute throughout.
The voyage was a quiet one. lhe
time was devoted by General Fershing
and his staff to hard work with close
concentration on the study of French
bv all the officers. During the trip
there was a concert at wnicn 'rna!
Fershing made an address. Tne re
was great enthusiasm on board when
three American destroyers came up to
act as escorts.

S. San Salvador and Santa Eel a,

an earthquake which commenced at
7 o'clock last night and continued
throughout the night, according to in
formation from the president of Nic

the first telegraphed after communi

earthquake. The shocks were accom
panied by rain. The casualties were
small, with some fires. The presi
dent of Nicaragua telegraphed to the
president of Salvador offering aid.
He ordered the organization of relief
committees to send help to the suf

New Orleans, June 8. Within nine
ty days it is believed wooden ship
building plants will dot the entire
Gulf coast from Florida to Texas.
Contracts have just been let for the
construction in this section of o2 of
the nation's great fleet of wooden
commerce carriers, while scores of
other contracts are pending for the
Private interests, attracted by high
rates for transporting ocean tonnage,
are clamoring for ships faster than
existing yards can build them. Not
only must Europe be fed and supplied
with the implements of war, but the
Central and South American trade is
making insistent call for more steam
ers and sailing vessels.
Indication that the Sout Yiradvan
tages for shipbuilding are attracting
the attention of eastern capital is
found in the official announcement
that a government contract has just
been let to the Ten -.upbuilding Co.
of New York for twenty merchant
cargo steamers, of approximately
500 tons each, to be built at Moss
Point, Miss. These vessels wi'l be of
the "composite" type, built with steel
frames and wooden planking.
The Merrill-Stevens Company, of
Jr.i kr.yi'le, has also heer. authorized
to huil" i twelve wooden cargo carry
Many oi'viir f;overr....snt contracts
are pending in the Gulf district, it
being planned, if satisfactory arrange
ments can be made, to build ships at
Morgan City, La., Houston, Texas,
Beaumont, Texas City and Fort Ar
thur, Galveston and Orange. Biloxi,
Madisonville, Slidell and elsewhere.
Shipbuilding for private interests is
eciuallv as active as that for the gov
ernment. Two auxiliary schooners
have been completed at Orange, Texas,
two others are on the ways, and 4f
more are expected to be turned out
within the next year ana a nan.
Beaumont and Port Arthur, Ten as.
are scenes of much work on marine
ways, half a dozen shipbuilding com
panies having been organized at these
two places within the past few days.
Ship yards are also actively ongaired
or contemplated at Millville, Fla , Bag
dad, Fla., Slidell, La.. Savannah, i.a..
Mobile, Ala., Biloxi, Miss.. Madison
ville and Lake Charles, La., New Or
leans, Helena. Ark., and elsewhere.
The close proximity to the Gulf re
gion of abundant forests of southern
pine, the mild climate, which permits
outdoor work throughout the year,
unhindered by snow and ice, and the
fact that here the best and cheapest
supply of labor in the country may be
found, combine with other advantages
to give this sction an opportunity to
build up a great shipbuilding indus
try which will in future prove an im
portant factor in the permanent pros
perity of the South.
