Four captains pf Nippon Yusen Kai
sha steamships which are to' be given
the American governranat- in- e hnge
for steel have refused to leave Japan,
bo the ships in their command, accord
ing t despatch from Kobe to the Jijl.
The orTlcers have objected on the
ground that the ships are inferior in'
speed to the dentin n 1' boats, henoe
being risky to eommand, and also that
the vessels to be traded are too small
for navigation on the Atlantic, where,
tba high sea are rougher and hence are
moreNlrfnjJHrrtnk'Th on the Indian and
Pacific Oceans.
- A a esilt. of their refusal to com
mand 'the boats listed to he turned
tier to ne united Mtat.es government,
t'waa decided at a recent meeting of
omeiaui of the Japanese firm that the
vessels under command of. these- offi
cer! be withdrawn from the list' anil
roplaeed by four newer ones, whose
names will be given out soon, .The
Vithdrawn ships are the Totoml Mara,
vhe, bonbi Mam, the EtoTofu Maru
and the Benten Maru. ' '
V Thadespatch states that out of the
ihips of 150,000 tons to he gives Amer
ica, nine will lie supplied by the Nip-
Kn Yusen Kaisha, at whose head office
'a Tokio instructions have been given
'0 the captains and engineers of the
line ships as to future service. On
receiving bis instructions, t'apt. Mat
uji Kitamura, conimander of the Eto
rofa Marn, Capt. Hnijiro Maroita of
he Eboshi Maru, Capt. Heisakp Ya
mada of the Hen ten Maru, and Capt.
Tsutoil Araki of the Totomi Maru, re
fused to, embark on their respective
vessels, while others are hesitating to
tfforts have since been made on one
hao to persuade the skippers to re
main in their, positions, and on the:
.Hher to select othsjr candidates for the,
posts. Ia this connection, Inspector
vlenerni Den, of the Navigation 8ec
ion of the Nippon . Y'usen Karelia's
Kobe branch was summoned to TokioJ
to attend the meeting which resulted
in the .withdrawal of the ships. , .
It is further stated by the despatch
hat for six months of the terms of the
ships' charter, the salaries of the com-
nauders will be raised as much aa
seven fold, in' addition to the war time
allowance, for, dissatisfaction on the
icore of the pay offered. .
The officers are reported as saying
that it would 'lie foolhardy to sail on
hp ships on such a dangerous route, as
that across the Atlantic. This report
lias stirred the excitement of the olli
rials of the firm. .
