?failing Cut in
price of Ships By Government jgyer? Hold Off; Private gai?r?ers Displaying No Disposition to Reduce fttir Tonnage Figures foreign Sales Blocked ??strictions Hamper Sales of British as Well as of Agserican Vessels Abroad fitter? o? *h* Shipping Board to ?core any bids for its steel ohiP3 *,, which offers were to have been ?pene? on September 1 is regarded by pipping men aa an indication of the aei?SSity for a lowering of the price ?cle ef *16? to $185 per deadweight (on fixed by the board. Ship owners in tke meantime are pursuing a waiting attitude. While the rates set ar? considerably ?jelotr those which American ship baildera ar? asking for the same types 0f tonnage, there is no evidence of softening in the prices asked by the srivate yards. A new factor which is ?xpeeted to tend toward the mainte? nance, of rates is the action of the N?v*f Department in granting increases ?f 5 "par cent and upward in some cms to the men engnged in ship kaildlng and ship repairing in the Mvy yards. In anticipation of the tfavy Department yielding to the men demands had already been made upon the shipbuilding companies, and while ft is expected that these will be re? listed there is little likelihood of a ?recession in prices pending the out? come. Reports from Southern shipyards are to,the effect that a concerted move it under way to secure the open shop principle for the plants there. Salea Abroad Impossible Pencling the appointment of the now Shipping Board, the present body has no power to rrt?ke sales of vessels to foreigners, ?.requirement of t?.e mer? chant marine act being that no sale caa be Mns*JminatFd without the af? firmative votes of five commissioners. Atprtsent there are on.y two members of the board. Any opportunities to diipose of the board's ships abroaa must therefore be let slip until Presi d?jnt Wilson has made the necessary ?amber of appoir.tn-.ents. The question of sales of ships to for? eigners is also the subject of some dif? ficulty in Great Britain. Objections an being made to the regulations placed upan th?se* sa!e3 by the British government. Complaint is made that unnecessary restrictions are being im? posed, and British papers state that it ?eems absurd that at a time when there is talk of a slump in shipbuild? ing and contracts are being cancelled the rules should be retained. It i? stated that the government .will jive eeilsideration only to applications for the sale of ships which are moro than fifteen years old, and that even wkea the necessary permission is granted owners are required to pay 15 per cent of the amount received to the government and to employ the re? scinder of the money either in a new Aessel or for the purchase of an ex enemy vessel surrendered under the tanas of peace. Second-Hand Ships High Aa a result of the restrictions, Brit? ish ?Hip owners ?tat?, thay have been prevented from making a number of profitable deals. Until recently prices for second-hand tonnage have been at ? very high level, and owners claim that if they had been allowed to make ?ale? when the market was most favor able they conld have reinvested the purchase money in new ships and given work to British yards at a time when orders will be needed. "Unless the situation in England is handled with care, and all interestec tee the problem before us," says on?: British paper, "a serious phase foi both shipping and ship building maj b? entered upon at a comparatively eariy date. That it can be avertcc w? confidently believe, but if the im m?diat? future of these great Britisl industries is to be assured it wili b? necessary for all foolish restriction; which hamper enterprise and stifl? developments, whether they arc brough about by the action of government de pertmenta or that of trade unions, t? M abolished." It is notable, however, that littl? Wiession is reported in the prices o British tonnage. Figures recent!; Published ?how sales for the first si: saonths of this year aggregating 56?, WO deadweight tons at ?16,250,000, o ? average of about ?30 per ton. S great wa? the demand for second-ham tonnage for a time that buyer? ar reported to have paid in many case ter times the original cost of th ??P?, com? of whiph were over twent Tears old. An especial feature of the deman he? been the call for small vessels o ??der- 1,000 ton? deadweight. Th prie*? *?aid for such ?hip? have range nom ?f>0 to nearly ?100 per ton, an ?e age of the vessel has played littl 9?^ m the price. Britain Sells Its ?hips ?iP?

Gratified by Ruling On Ship Classifying American Bureau Expresses Appreciation of Step by Shipping Board From The Tribune's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Sept. 9,?The United States Shipping Board to-day received a letter from the American Bureau of Shipping expressing gratification over a recent decision of the board requir? ing that all vessels built from earnings cf vessels in operation be constructed in accordance with the rules of the bureau. At a recent meeting the board adopt? ed the following resolution: "Whereas Section 23, merchant ma? rine act, 1920, provides that steamship owners may be relieved from war and excess profits taxes under certain con? ditions, one of which is that the net earnings of vessels owned by said com? panies and operated in foreign trade are to be invested in new tonnage or set aside in trust for that purpose, said new tonnage to be of a type and kind approved by the boar?!; and, "Whereas, Section 25 of said act pro? vides that all departments, bureaus, boards and commissions of the United States government are directed to rec? ognize the American Bureau of Ship? ping as their agency for the olassifica tion of vessels owned by such bureaus, and for such other purposes in connec? tion therewith as are the proper func? tions of a classification bureau; be it "Resolved, That in all cases the board'? approval of the type and kind of vessel, under the provisions of Sec? tion 23 shall be on condition that said vessels shall be constructed in accord? ance with the rules of the American Bureau of Shipping; and be it "Further resolved, That this condi? tion shall apply to all such approvals heretofore given." The American Bureau of Shipping, ac? knowledging the resolution, wrote Ad? miral Benson, chairman of the board, in part as follows: "For t::is further evidence of the board's confidence in t'rKs American classification .society we desire to ex? press our sincere thanks, and we as? ure you that we are making every en? deavor to continue to warrant the board's confidence and potrotic support, to the ultimate end of doing our part in the upbuilJiig and maintenance of a highly efficient American merchant marine." Daily Forecast on Winds j Weather Bureau to Issue Re-1 ports as Guide to Aviators To comply with the demands created '? by increasing air travel, the United States Weather Bureau at New York is now including in its daily report of: weather conditions, a statement as to j wind direction and force in the upper regions. One such report recently is sued by -Tames H. Scarr, in charge of , the New York office of the Weather Bu? reau, contained the following para? graphs: "Steamers departing to-day for Euro? pean ports will have fresh to strong northeast to north winds, and generally lair weather to the O?--??' Hn ?>-? "The winds up to 10,000 feet are east? erly, but shift abruptly to westerly above 13,000 feet." The data is obtained, he said, through the army and navy authorities at Mitchel Field and at Rockaway Beach, where daily observations are made by means of barometers, wind guages, etc, sent up attached to captive balloons. -,-s Army Orders From The Tribune's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON'.

Opening Means Recovery, .Say Leaders Sharp Reduction in Prices Stimulates Incguiry and j Promises Busy S<eason; Stability Seen by Wood Encouraging signs of early trade re? covery were seen in the excellent buy? ing of goods for spring delivery at the opening of the American Woolen Com? pany here yesterday. Sharp reductions in prices from those quoted for fall delivery brought out throngs of buy? ers and proved sufficiently attractive to lead officials of the company to be? lieve that orders would be obtained to keep the mills in full operation throughout the winter. Trade leaders were fully satisfied with the 25 per cent declino in prices, as predicted in this column yesterday, and were confident that the quotations of the American company would go a long ways toward establishing prices for cloths and stabilizing the entire textile industry. While prices in some lines were not as low as some manufacturers had wished, the majority of the new quotations were considerably below the average prediction and came as"a surprise to those who thought that the American company would attempt to continue high prices. Woolen goods were quoted at a de? cline of 25 per cent or more from fall prices, inasmuch as this branch of the industry has suffered more from mar? ket weakness than worsteds, which av? eraged about 22 per cent lower. Style No. 3192, a serge, which is taken for price comparison throughout the trade, opened at $3.62V?, as against $4.50 for this fall, a decline of about 20 pet cent. In explanation of the rather surpris? ing drop, M. W. Wood, president of the American, said: "We are going after orders to fill our mills. It is time business started up. "We are not yet wearing papei clothes in this country?we are goinj; to attract buyers for woolen goods ir a wool-wearing country. The way tc start the market is to slash prices. Nc one can ask for lower prices than wt have named. "These are attractive prices and sc for as we can foresee no lower one; can be named. We have got to maki prices such that our distributors ca? ,: ? ?? = :!-.? ?* with confidence." While the trade appeared satisfie? ivi i. aie 'American coir.pany's new quo tatlons, buying for the most part wai conservative and all indications point cd to the fact that wholesale manufac turera still were showing a good dea of caution. It was believed, however that the total volume of busines: would be entirely satisfactory to t h ? company and some di-partments as sorted that orders were more libera than they expected. Women's dress goods, ,for inst.inc? were in pood demand and the staple department reported encouraging busi ness, as well as an unusual number o inquiries under the circumstance; Fancies were not entirely neglecte and, "in view of the conservative elc ment in the market for goods, the bus: ness done was considered a good ome for the future. Other departments r?. ported business in excess of some c tue conservative predictions. In fact, those who felt that the oper ing should have been delayed for ar other month, in the hope that con?l tions would then be more favorabli were surprised at the inquiry show by buyers. While they still contende that the company would have done jus a.; much business a month later, an would have been in a position to pi mills on longer time, they were not s pessimistic of the future as they wer before the opening. It was pointed out by some in th trade tnat the jobbers will not be com pelled to make any revisions in thei established prices, as tne new one are not low enough to cause any o them losses. In fact, it was said tha in some numbers the second hand may be enabled to increase their price somewhat, as they have been sellin under the new mill quotations. With the opening for spring lines i full swing under encouraging outloo the American company is now, or soo will be, turning its attention to t; opening of fail lines next winter. It believed that this opening will be he! on schedule time in January if cond tions in the trade continue to ?mpro\ as they have for the last few week The opening last year was delayed ui til February, because of the discou aging labor outlook. Commercial Credit Conditions in the commercial money market were little changed yesterday. Mercantile houses continued to cover their credit needs on a discount basis ' of 8 per cent for the best paper. This i is the season of the year when there is ! normally an increase in commercial : borrowing'. So far, however, th<?re has I not been the usual expansion, due pre- j sumably to the unsettled trade con- | ditions. No change in commercial money rates was noted yesterday. Commer cial paper still discounts at 8 and 81* | per cent. Bankers' acceptance rates | quoted by the American Acceptance Council were: Non-Member Member Banks. Banks. Buy. Sell. Buy. Sell. 30 days. 61.* 6 6% 6Vi M days. 6'i 'U4 6Ri 6% 90 days. 6% 6& 6% 6k> Silks Show Firm Tone Improvement in inquiries from the trade and signs of strength in markets for raw material have had a tendency to give a firmer tone to the silk trade, according to reports here yesterday. The most encouraging sign in the local i market, nccording to the trade, is in-? creased orders for spot delivery. While buyers remain unusually cau- ' tious and continue to avoid increasing) commitments to a great extent, pur- j chases have become more frequent and lead wholesalers to believe that retail stocks are nearing the depletion point.1 Canton silks have attracted the most! attention in the last week, it was said. While the strength of the Yokohama1 market, both for immediate and future delivery, tends to help the market here, Erices there are too high for American uyers to do business in Japan. It is said, however, that Europeans aro buy? ing on the higher scale and appear willing to go on. The Italian market, too, is reported stronger and higher than the Japanese. For this reason American buyers are not in-terested ex ' cept in so far as the general market ?3 I affected. Gray Goods Market Drift? $ Improvement Report? Heard While scattered reports of improve? ment in the gray goods market are heard with somo frequency, leaders admit that buying is not on a large reale, and they are uncertain whether or not a definite trend for the better hns set in. Of course, small orders under present conditions are regarded as encouraging signs, where they would hardly be noticed under normal mar? ket conditions Purchases for Immediate delivery are tha rula and buyers continue reluctant to placa order? with raw cotton show in? ftrreriih change? almost daily. The ?pinion still poroiif? tt??t low-air ?not?. fions will be seen before stability can be reached, and this influence tends to keep the market unsettled. Just when increased demand will be sufficient to j firovide a safe working basis trade eaders refuse to predict. Shoe Market Still Dull j i While there are few signs of im- | provement in the shoo and leather ; trade so far, leaders believe that the i worst part of the depression has ; passed and that the outlook for the ! future is potentially if not actually brighter. Salesmen have gathered in ? some small orders for immediate de '. livery, but have not met with cncourag i ing success in placing deliveries for ^ spring. ? i Buyers Arrived Fairchild Service ALBANY?W. hi.
