Ends Dispute With Chile Lima Admits Report of At? tacks Was Incorrect, Consul Here Says Apology Accepted, Don Ruiz Learns Chilean Government Can? cels Authority of Envoy at Iquique The difficulties between Peru and Chile, which resulted yesterday in the recall o? consular representatives by each nation, have been overcome by an apology on the part of the Peruvian government. Carlos Castro Ruiz. Con? sul General of Chile, announced here last night. Mr. Ruii said he had received from the Chilean Minister of Foreign Af? fairs, a cablegram Informing him of the apology. The message, the consul general as? serted, authorized him to announce that the Peruvian officials admitted that in making public reports of out- j breaks against their citizens in Iquique and Antofagasta, Chile, they had acted | on misinformation, furnished, he said,: by the Peruvian Consul at Iquique, whose authority had been cancelled for this reason by the Chilean government. ? The apology sent from Lima, Mr. ? Ruiz added, was wholly satisfactory to the Chilean officials and "brought the misunderstanding to an end." Tribun? Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Nov. 26.?The United States is considering the entire subject of differences between Chile and Peru, together with the possibility of the reported recall of their respective con? sular representatives, resulting In open hostilities, and if the breach widens it is likely that this povernment will in? tervene, diplomatically, to preserve the peace in South America. Don Bertram Mathieu, the new Chilean ambassador, made his first of? ficial call at the State Department to- ; day. It is believed that Secretary Lansing expressed to him the hope that the dispute between Chile and Peru might be amicably adjusted. SANTIAGO, Chile. Nov. 26.?The Peruvian question was brought up in ; the Chilean Chamber of Deputies last [ night, and a stormy session resulted. Se?or Cardenas, the second vice President of the chamber, suggested ! that the question be settled peaceably. The members of the new Chilean Cab- j inet, who were present, withdrew as a I protest, and the president and first ? vice-president of the chamber an- ? nounced they had resigned. The ses- | sion then had to be adjourned to pre- I vent violence. The sitting was reopened later, and j the deputies voted Cardenas out of of- j fice as second vice-president and an-1 nulled the resignations of the presi- j dent and first vice-president. After the meeting crowds in the ' street hooted Carnedaa, calling him a ? traitor. ? Peruvians Leaving Chile LIMA, Peru, Nov. 25.?The Peruvian < government has not received official dispatches from its consular repre? sentatives in Chile for forty-eight hoars, although it has recalled its consuls from Chile. The newspapers here have received no news from their ; correspondents in Chile, and it is be- j lieved that a strict cable censorship is in force at all Chilean ports. -,-? French Aces Plan Careers as Civilians Fonck May Stay in Army? Nungesser Expects to Visit United States PARIS, Nov. 26.?What will become of the aviators now that the fighting has ended? Commercial aviation doubtless will be extended, but it is a question whether it will present sufficient at? traction to the men who have taken up aviation for the distinction to be won in air fighting. The Aero Club of France up to the present has issued 16,000 pilot licenses, and hundreds of military pilots have not taken out the Aero Club's license to which they are entitled. Inquiry among French aces shows that the majority are too young to be worrying about the next phase of life, although some hope that civilian avia? tion will offer satisfactory careers. Lieutenant Ren? Fonck, the ace of aces, with seventy-five olficiai victories, has not yet decided what he will do, but may remain in the army. Sub Lieutenant Nangesser, with forty-four victories, has decided to quit the army. He has received many offers and may go to the United States. Lieutenant Lema?tre, after leading 135 bombing expeditions, will be in ctarge of an aerial transport under? taking. A young lieutenant, barely of age, who has won fourteen v;ctories, says: "All I know is that I will not continu? my law studies." Sub Lieutenant Bourjade, with twen? ty-eight succf-sse?, probably will have the least difficulty in returning to civilian iife. He is a priest and will resumo his clerical duties.

Try it ) Board Thinks Seamen's Act No Bar to Marine Success Wages Only 4 Per Cent of Cost of Operation of Vessels, and Superior American Efficiency Will Overcome This Handicap, Shipping Experts Believe By Theodore M. Knappen WASHINGTON, Nov. 26.?The sud ! den termination of hostilities has re ' suited in a wholesale overhauling of ? the Shipping Board's construction pro ; gramme. So long as hostilities were : going on, speed of construction rather i than the type of vessels was the su : preme consideration. The primary pur ? pose of the emergency fleet was early ! and effective use in promoting ?he cou ; duct of the war. With the fighting over, the governing : consideration has become the construc? tion of a great national marine that will be adapted to the ||ses of com . merce. Had the war continued for an ' other year or two its end wouid have : found the United States with a vast ! but unba^nced fleet. It would have. I contained too many ships of certain 1 types and too few of other types to be economically adapted to the require? ments of maritime commerce. While victory was still an unattained goal the Emergency Fleet Corporation was the absolute dictator of types. Its aim was to produce the greatest pos? sible tonnage in the shortest possible time. Tho operating division accepted whatever the Fleet Corporation gava it and made the best use it could thereof. Now the operating division of the Shipping Board has assumed the posi? tion of a buyer of ships and the pro? duction division?the Fleet Corporation ?has become the seller. The operat? ing division orders what it wants and the Fleet Corporation builds to order. This change will go far to make up for the mistakes of the past and for ! the unbalanced programme which was 1 inforced by the necessities of war. The general result will bo that a large pro? portion of the 3,000 ships of the na? tional mercantile marine will be well adapted to economical use in peace. Tho consensus of opinion is that it will be utterly impossible without tre? mendous financial Iors, as well as the extreme of national folly, to abandon or reduce the shipbuilding programme. So much money has been invested in yards, so much has been advanced on account, so many ships are partly built and the material acquired for so many others, that nobody has thought of proposing anything approaching an im? pairment of the great programme. To discontinue it now, it is argued ?would also destroy the now splendid prospect that America will become and remain the premier shipbuilding nation of the world. The government work the yards now have will give them such ex I periei eo in shipbuilding, will result in the creation of s-uch a great, body of skilled workers and will so strengthen j then: 1r.ai.cia b that it is believed they will be able, ;'i normal times, to com pete '.'.'il h the world. Hoard fs Optimistic Tho operating division of the Ship? ping Board ooes not ?liar? the pc:-.~iin ism so much in evidence concerning the ability of American ships to compete successfully in wor d trade. It does not consider the seamen's law, commonly known as the La Foilctto law, an in? superable obotaclo to successful com : pel i tion. Reams have been written about this law, but one of the greatest shipping I managers in America pointed out to? day that wages constitute only 4 per cent of the cost, of operating a ship. He maintains that any handicap within this narrow margin that the La Follette law may impose on Ameri? can shipping can be offset by the su? perior efficiency of the well paid and well treated American crew. In this connection it is recalled that the old Pacific Mail and the Grace Line fou?ht a seven years' war with the German Cosmos Line on the Pacific, and completely defeated it. The seaman's law was not then in effect, but the American companies fought and won the war against the German line while paying the highest wages and salaries paid by any steamship companies in the world. Th chief defect of tho LaFollette law, this manager says, is one that is least talked about, and that is its ef? fect in making it difficult or impos? sible to maintain discipline. , Oppose Government Operation Practical shipping men do not give serious thought to Secretary Daniels's proposal that the ships of the na? tional marine shall be operated by the government. Government operation might be possible for certain regular routes where tho ships run on schedule, but the general cargo busi? ness under government operation would; they say, result in a costly failure. They are confident that with the hundreds of thousands of men and of? ficers that the war has trained for the seas and with the turning of American business interests to the ex? port trade, private ship operators can take over the 3.000 ships of the na? tional marine and compete successfully with the ships of any other nation. U. S. to Relinquish Its Allotment of Steel on Dec. 1 War Board May Take Ac? tion Later on Appeal for Supervision Continuance Tribune Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Nov. 26?Steel allo? cation, the War Industries Board de? cided to-day, will be suspended on December 1. After that date, steel purchasers will deal directly with the industry, but manufacturers will be obliged to con? tinue making weekly reports of pro? duction and shipments to Steel Admin? istrator Replogle until December 31. Mr. Replogle could not tell to-day I what action would be taken by the ! War Industries Board on the recent ; request of the steel industry that the I board continue supervision, including : price fixing, until January 1, when fur , ther action on matters vital to the in? dustry would be considered. I At a meeting of the division chiefs j of the board with Chairman Raruch to i day it was virtually decided that the ; board would be the first war emer I gency organization to disband, despite ! the fact that it had been expected I the board would be largely instru? mental in guiding the country's re | construction programme. The with i drawal of Chairman Baruch of tho board is said to be a matter of only a I few weeks. Their Usefulness Ended At the meeting to-day the question 1 of how far the board should proceed in regulating the distribution of raw ma ' terials and in effecting the cancella i tion of government contracts was fully discussed. The consensus of opinion was that it would be impracticable for ' the board to continue its restrictive ! programme in connection with the dis? tribution of raw materials. Tho of? ficials of the board expressed an un? willingness to assume responsibility for the cancellation of government con? tracts without some special authoriza ! tion from the President to proceed with this work. The upshot of the conference was that Chairman Baruch's staff admitted their usefulness as an organization hud passed and it is expected a demobiliza? tion will commence within the t^ext few days. It is understood to-day's meeting originated through difficulties encoun? tered by the facilities division in can? celling and curtailing government con ! tracts. The War Industries Board can? not act on questions of cancellation, it was stated, until the matter is ad? vanced with the approval of the War ? or Navy Department. Few Contracts Curtailed In the War Department particularly, business and industrial questions have been handled by civilians. These men aro now all anxious to return to their civilian attachments. The general reBult is that but few 1 curtailments have been effected on contracts on which work had com menced prior to the armistice, and the government is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars daily on mu? nitions and equipment for which there j is no need. No one is willing to tackle I the job, and the President has not j yet given the matter his personal at ! tontion. It is likely that tho contract situa j tion will be given close scrutiny by j tho Congressional committees this win I ter. "Four-Minute Men" Will Be Di. banded on Dec. 24 WASHINGTON. Nov. 26. ? The or? ganization of "Four-Minute Men" of the Committee on Public Information, will conclude its work and be din landed December 24, Chairman Creel announced to-day.

Ashland Extension Mean? Vir? tual Surrender of Bridge The proposed Ashland Place contract between the city and the B. R. T. was denounced yesterday by John H. De ' laney, Commissioner of Plants and Structures, as containing a legal joker, which, in effect, means a gift of $35, 000,000 to the traction company. The attack was made at a final public hear? ing before Borough President Riegel? mann. By the disputed contract the B. R. T would agree to make the Ashland ex? tension to connect the Fulton Street "L" and the Flatbusb Avenue subway The Commissioner charged trickery which would enable the company tc evade payment of $91,250 Brooklyr Bridge tolls. By his interpretation o: the contract, he said, the city als< would be forced to make a present to thi company of its $25.000,000 investmen in the bridge and $8,000,000 investmen in subway construction. Several citizens at tho hearing con tended the loop wou'd benefit travel lers, who are compeled now to wal between stations, and recommendei the signing of the contract. Extra Pullman Fares Abolished on Dec. ' McAdoo Decides to Drop Es cess Charge of Half Cent a Mile in U. S.
