SHIPPING BOARD DOES NDTINTEND

In. the first annual report of the ship
riot board It is made plain that the
"manifest purpose of Congress la not
jjf' to overturn the policy of our coastwise

temporary exceptions to that policy
'v- where war needs necessitate such ex
; . ceptlons.-

- campaign which is being carried on
" i by Honolulu interet ts and foreign ship
ping spDpanies which wish to secure
the granting of permits to foreign ves
sels to enter the coastwise trade under
alx months' licenses.
The following comment is made in
the shipping board's report regarding
the admission to the coastwise trade

more economical use of tonnaae and

"A r-rtlon of these Increases has no
lt tcea Justified by . larger cost
; of operation. Because of the haxard
ous nature of the service, officers and
crew are entit.'ed to special , war
bonuses. The cost of bunker fuel snd
supplies has advanced. The hatard
ous nature of th enterprise perhaps
justifies somewhat higher returns
than usual on the capital invested
The cost of war risk insurance on the
ship is included in the freight rate.
Yet all these factors do not justify
the progressive multiplication of
charter rates, nor the hitherto lncon
ceivable heights to which freight
cbsrges have advanced.
"The market value of a ship bears
a close relation to Its earning power,
hence the price of ships, also, has
steadily mounted, until ships which
before the war would have sold at
from ISO to ISO, have recently changed
hands at $100 or over, per d. w. ton.
After a careful investigstion of cost
and values, and after full conference
with representative shipowners, the
hoard determined that th Inflated war
rates, arising as they did from abnor
mal conditions due to the submarine,
and to the diversion of tonnage for
military purposes, did not represent
fair and legitimate values of the kind
that are conclusive in determining
just compensation. The board there
fore fixed a tentative scale of requi
sition rates, substantially higher than
the prewar basis, which took full ac
count of increased costs and legit
mate Increases in ship values, but
which nevertheless was substantially
under th unjust market rates, then
prevalent The rates so fixed became
effective at one for all vessels requi
sitioned by the board for military
"To single out certain vessels and
to limit their earning to a reasonable
level, and at th same tim to leave
others operating in free trade at
ratea forced to even mor fantastic
heighta by th requisitioning of com
peting tonnage, would have produced
n manifest discrimination. Moreover,
In a war In which th mobilisation
of economic resources is second In Im
portance only to the servlee of armies
In the field, the distinction between
war service ' and commercial service
scarcely exists. All commercial ship
ping connected with vital American in
dustries la engaged in war work.
Th board has therefor recently
adopted a policy of requisitioning fdr
government account, all powerdrlven
steel cargo vessels of 2 W0 tons dead
weight or ever, and all passenger ves
sels of - 2500 tons ' gross register or
over, adapted to ocean servlee. The
operation of these vessels Is entrust
ed m Urge pan to th companies by
whom they wer formerly controlled,
but all receipts hav been for gov
ernment nee unt, the owners being
credited i with the requisition rate
f Ixed by th .. board. Th vessels,
moreover, , are under full control 'of
the board as to voyages, cargoes, and
rates and as ' to safeguards for their
protection against the haeards of war
son service. It is hoped that this
policy cr lit- b the meant of aeHevlBg
two results which In the. opinion of
the board ar necessary; . Tlrst, com
plete unity . of control over the dis
tribution . of ahlpplng, so that war
needs may b fllld In-th order of
their emergency; and second, Just and
effective regulation of rates, so that
th nations at war with Germany may
not b financially exhausted by extor
tionate trahlportatlon ehargea. ? t-
Turther experience may , drelop
that, consistent with th purposes
sbove outlined, some of the steamers
not adapted to war service may prof
itably be released from requisition. Al
to other lines, mor effective methods
of regulation and control may prove
to ' b necessary. : It should - b bornt
in . mind that : aside from U requi
sition power th beard at present haa
no Jurisdiction over ratea in foreign
trade, and no Jurisdiction over inter
state rtes,;eept wber vessels art
common carriers .operating on regular
routes. , If experience shall prove it
to b necessary, th board win recom
mend drastic legislation to meet more
effectively the situation arising from
th atut dearth of tonnage. ' -: 1
Th freight raUs to b charged
to shippers on requisitioned vessels
left la commercial servle or assigned
to foreign - governments hav been
th subject of careful consideration.
The board, of course, haa no desire t6
profiteer at th expense of any gov
ernment associated with the united
States in the war against Germany,
or of th general public; On th ether
hand dxistin . contracts, particularly
these on a c. I. f. basis, and special
market - eondltlons often ? present vr a
danger that a reduction In rat will
not inure to th benefit of the con
sumer but will merely transfer from
th shipowners to favored shippers
th monopoly earning which J t ia in
tended .to eliminate. Th policy of
th board therefor will be to charge
freight rates based on th requisition
rat whenever It can ' receive assur
ance that the benefit of these,. low
ratea will accrue to the American or
allied government or to the consum
ing public; and .to charge . hither
ratea whenever this fact shall not b
so established. Th a pplleatlon of
thia poller will no doubt present dif
ficulties in Individual cases but ft is)
UlUved In prlnclpl to be sound.
' Th requisition program ia yet
has been in ffet for aueh a ehort
period of tim that no accurate state
mcnt of receipts and expenditure can

STATUS OF MAIL AT
PIER STrfl IN DOUBT
Doubt ia atlll -expressed by. govern
ment officials as to the advisability of
mail being received at steamships for
delivery in the United States, although
it Is prelty generally agreed that the
acceptance of such mail for a forelga

pany liable to the government for vi-
latlon of the censorship law.
A Japanese steamer in port Friday
which was bound for the coast refuedi
to receive mail at the gangway, on

Even if the steamer was bound h f

made that mail for a ship touching nt
foreign . ports could be mailed here
and then brought back through Hono
