SUN, SUNDAY, MARCH 23, U.S. SHIP GAIN ! AMAZES WORLD, HURLEY SAYS' i i European Nations in Big Race to Replace loss Caused by War. SEA PAY KATE UNIVERSAL Tanlico Competition- Worries England Even Swiss to Hare Marine. V.AnmA V tl 1 ... - I ... Ik ' United States Shipping Board, has ren dered a report to his coUea-rues of the board on the result of his mission abroad to get Information on the shipping situ ation of the world as a result of the war. Mr. Hurley sailed from New York on November 16 and returned to this coun try on February 11. In Introducing the subject matter of his report Mr. Hurley says: "My observation during the three mouths spent abroad and In the midst of the great events following the sign ing of the armistice have afforded con vincing proof that the matter of mer chant shipping Is now one of universal Interest, Ever)' nation is alert to trjell Tltal bearing of ships upon Its future pro.perlty. But the chief Interest cen tres on whether America can henceforth maintain her new place upon the seas or whether she mutt now disband the ener gies that brough her merchant fleet Into being. There Is ever)' reason for believ ing that America has come back upon the ocean to stay. My observations compel optimism. I. 9. Takes niffh Place. "The war has brought us into a high place as a maritime Power. I find the peoples of the world nroused td an In tense interest and concern as to the use we are to make of this power now that peace Is returned. "In America you have heard much about British competition. In Great Britain I heard a great deal more about American competition. The expressions of British publicists, newspapers and of ficials which come to my attention pro vided no grounds for alarm about the future of our shipping. "The lesson I learned from the British was not to concentrate too much upon the strength of the competition we must meet. The truth Is that our friends across the water are for the first time In many years entering upon a period of actual' competition. It is an era regarding which I entertain no misgivings. It Is an age of promise for those who would participate in America's high destiny upon the peaceful seas." Commerce Cnlls for Ships. ' After stating that the first thing nec essary Is to know where we stand, Mr. Hurley gives a summary of the world shin tonnage situation. He calls atten tion to the fact that many vessels were pressed Into service during the war which were considered unfit for service before the war and many others were kept In service long after they would have been abandoned under normal con ditions. The failure of the normal In crease In the merchant fleets of the world for the period of the war also must be taken Into consideration In com puting shortage of ocean tonnage. The only conclusion from the figures Is that there Is an Imperative demand for new ships to carry the commerce of the world, and It will bo our effort to be of pervlee in this direction. "The United States forged ahead as rapidly as Germany fell behind," says Mh Hurley. "In August, 1914, at the beginning of the world war, the United Rtates seagoing merchant marine, COO gross tons and over, included 621 steamship- of 1. TBS, 465 gross tons and 870 ailing vessels and schooner barges of 947 852 gross tons, making a grand total of 1,494 seagoing merchant vessels of 3,706,317 gross tons. "On November 11. 191S, at t?,e end of the war, the steam merchant ma rine had Increased to 1,366 vessels of 4.685.263 gross tons and the sailing vessels and echooner barges had de creased to 747 vessels of 829.917 -cross tons, making a grand total of 3,118 seagoing merchant vessels of 6,515,180 gross tons. This does not Include the seized enemy vessels, which at the end of tho war aggregated eighty-eight ves pels of 563,005 gross tons, of which number olghty-one of 546,210 gross tons were steamers and seven of 15,795 gross tons were sailing vessels. "The total construction in the United States added to the merchant marine during the war amounted to 873 ves sels of 2,941,845 gross tons. The pur cha.e from aliens of 2S3 vessels of 833,854 gross tons, the movement to the ocean from the great lakes oN sixty-six steamers of 139,469 gross tonn and miscellaneous acquisitions amounting to thirty-one vessels of 89, 319 gross tons are other sources of acquisition. I'ngland In Mtuhty Bare. "The loss of 114 vessels of 322.211 gross tons by enemy action, of 278 ves sel of 405.400 gross tons by marine rls'k, of 130 vessels of 268,149 gross tons by sale to aliens and of sixty-four vessels of" 149,7UaK'M tons thtOMMi sale to the United States Government, abandonment and other causes accounts for the decreases. Losses of fifteen eelzeil German and requisitioned Dutch .team vessels amounting to 112,248 grovs tons are not Included In the losses given a hove. "To-day we are potentially the great est maritime power of the earth, for the reason that we posse the greatest shipbuilding Instrumentalities." Mr, Hurley's report shows an enor mous net war los In merchant tonnage for Great Britain despite her best ef forts to replace her losses by new con struction, purchases and the utilisation of raptured and seized enemy vessels. Mr. Hurley made n Furvey of the yards of the United Kingdom nnd reaches the conclusion that under favor able conditions they may reach or even exceed the 3.0(10,000 grors ton output predicted for 1919. "I have heard a great deal mid nbout the ronKtruotlon of 'Junk ships' In Amer ica," en) a Mr. Hurley, "emphasis thus being laid on the number of small ves. hhI we had under construction. It was sought to convey tho lmprctlon that our new chips would suffer by compari son wltb'thnsa laid down by our friends and associates overseas, Kmnllrr Craft Vlnnlntr Faror. "It may surprise these critics to hear, as I have heard, that British yards hnd under construction October 31, sixty. sir r-hlps at 6,000 gross tons and over. Our programme for tfiat date caUtd for 106 ships of 6,000 gross tons or over."

'.'Even Switzerland has not escaped this desire to acquire a merchant marine." Switzerland, it Is explained, Intends to construct a merchant navy when canal Improvements are made on the Rhine, which will bring raw materials In exchange for manufactured goods. The ambitions of some of the other nations In the matter of expanding their merchant marine may be summarized from the report as follows: France In view of her large losses and the utilization of her shipyards for the production of war material, thus pre venting new construction, France, through her Navy League, representing shipping companies and shipbuilding In dustries, has asked President Wilson to approvo and support these three pro posals : That German and Austrian shipping be given to France to replace her losses ton for ton. That French shipowners be -enabled Immediately to buy 1,000,000 tons of ships built-in Great Britain and 1,000,000 tons of ships built In America. That French shipowners be enabled Immediately to construct In American shipyards '2,000,000 tons of cargo steamers. , Italy The war loss of approximately 1,700,000 gross tons, more than half her fleet as It existed at the beginning of the war, stems to have Inspired Italy with high ambitions for the future of her merchant marine. She Is encourag ing shipbuilding and It has been esti mated that In three years the Italian merchant fleet will exceed 4,000,000 gross tsns. Japan Enters Into Field, Japan For the period of the war Japan has not only added strength to her own merchant na-y but has under taken the bultdlng of merchant vessels for foreign account. At the crux of the military situation in France the United States, which had already ob tained through charter and purchase about 280,000 deadweight tons of ship ping from Japan, gave her yards con tracts for thirty more vessels, which are In rapid process of construction. For 1919 Jaran has a programme of 191 steamers of 1,189,280 deadweight tons. The maximum capacity of her yards Is 1,700,000 deadweight tons. Sweden At the end of 1918 had fifty ships of approximately 60,000 dead weight tons under construction, a record In Swedish shipbuilding. Is hampered by lack of raw material, but Is pre pared to go ahead on enlarged scale when taw materials become available. Norway Several new yards have been built and old yards put in .repair. Is now getting necessary raw material and will endeavor to replace her own losses and expand her merchant fleet. uuur maritime nations among the Allies and neutrals are looking to the replacemeat of war losses and the up building of their merchant fleets through purchase and new construction. Ger many. Austria and Turkey undoubtedly will have to wait upon adjustment of In. tenial conditions and final peace terms before entering upon a programme for overseas shipping. "The labor situation throughout the wot Id Is vibrant," Mr. Hurley reports. "Experience of earlier generations has taught us not to expect a completly noiseless turning back of the war ma chinery to the uses of peace. Men who have labored under great strain yield their attention more readily to the agi- titor. The agitators nbound.

Bright Fa tare Predicted, "The future is bright for those Amer icana who would follow the profession ot the sea. My observations abroad convince me that there are no adequate reasons why America should recede from .the veq-aljri standards of wages and conditions of life she has icWr. for her seamen. "Here In America there exists an Idea that our seamen's wages are Incompar ably higher than in nny other na,lon, The thought Is widely propagated that these rates of pay for the labor of the men who operate our ships render It Im possible for us to' enter profitably Into competition with the other great marl time nations; notably England. "It Is high time that tho public mind were disabused of this misconception. We are paying our seamen 875 a month. England 'during the war paid her sea men $72 a month. "Tho French and Dltch also are pay ing tilth wages to their merchant crews. In Sneden the seamen's wtge scale Is even higher than In the United State?. "There Is scarcely more reason for predicting a return of old and low wage scales among European seamen thai, of a reduction of American standards." The Commission on International La bor Legislation appointed by the Peace Conference tit Paris, of which Mr, Hur ley Is a member, has announced tho ac ceptance of two principles, first the prohibition of labor by children under 16 years of age, and second, uniformity of seamen's wages, "Prior to August, 1914, both the .for eign trade and the shipping of the United States were to a great extent dominated by British tnterosts," con tinues the report of Mr. Hurley. "At the outbreak of the war pnly a part of the tonnage under the Ameri can Mae was emp'.oyed In overseas trade. In 1915, for example, only one-seventh f the foreign tri0r of the United States was carried In America 11 bottoms.

The National Suffrage Convention, which will begin Its sessions here Monday, Is the fore runner of a vigorous political campaign to be waged against the political party refusing to lend Its full support to the movement to obtain universal suffrage for women, according to Dr. Anna Shaw, Suffrage leader and chairman of the Na tional Woman's Committee of the Coun cil of National Defence,' who Is here as a delegate. 'The movement has reached a point where it demands tho attention of every thinking person In the country." he said. "It la no longer a propaganda. It is one of the greatest factors in the na tion's politics and will play an Important part In the next .Presidential election. "If we had made use of our political fower earlier such Senators as Reed of Missouri would not have made their despicable attacks on suffrage."

RULES DRY STATES Brewers' Fight Causes Anti SaloQn League to Canvass Arid Territory. ST1UCT LAWS ENFORCED Some Mcnsnres Neglect to De fine How Much Alcohol Will Intoxicate. The fight by the New Tork brewers to save their business from ruin and to preserve their right to manufacture non Intoxicating beer has aroused general In terest In existing prohibitory laws adopted by the various States. Wayne B, Wheeler, national counsel for the Anti-Saloon League of America, has canvassed those State enactments and finds that most of them set one-half ot 1 n.r i-nt n ttiA narnilnqlhlA nlrnhnlln ' content. A number of these laws are extremely drastic, Virginia forbidding fruits preserved In alcohol and West Virginia tabooing nil malt or brewed drinks whether Intoxicating or not, Mon tana, however, allows 2 per cent, and some other States merety ban liquor which Is Intoxicating, without defining how much alcohol can bo guaranteed to produce Intoxication. In tho District of Columbia alcoholic liquors are defined by law to Include: "Whiskey, brandy, rum, gin, wine, ale, porter, beer, cordials, hard or fermented cider, alcoholic bitters, ethyl alcohol, all malt liquors and all other alcohollo liquors." Strict nan on Lliinor. Section 1 of the Arkansas law forbids the manufacture, barter or giving away of "alcohol, vinous, malt, spirituous or fermented liquors, or nny compound or preparation thereof commonly called tonics, bitters or medicated liquors." The Alabama act of 1919, Section 1, contains the following: "All liquors, liquids or beverages, made In imitation of Intended as a substitute for, beer, ale, rum, gin, whiskey, or any other alcho hollc, spirituous, vinous or malt liquor; and further, that any liquor, drink or liquid made or used for beverage pur poses containing any alcohol sball be deemed an alcoholic liquor." In Florida the law classifies pro hlblted liquors and beverages under six headings, vli. : "Alcohol, alcoholic liquors, spirituous liquors and all mixed liquors, any part of which Is spirituous, foreign or do mestlc spirits, or rectified or distilled spirits, ubslnthe, whiskey, brandy, rum and gin. "Vinous liquors and beverages. "AH malted, fermented or brewed J liquors . . . whether alcoholic or not or whether intoxicating or not. "And any drinks, liquors or beverages containing one-half of 1 per cent, of al cohol or more by volume at 60 degrees Fahrenheit, or nny other liquids or liquors manufactured or eold or other wise disposed of for beverage purposes, containing said amount ot one-halt of 1 per cent, ot alcohol or more. "Any Intoxicating bitters or beverages by whatever name called. "All liquors and beverages or drinks made In Imitation of or Intended n a substitute for beer, ale, wine or whiskey, or other alcoholic or spirituous, vinous or malt liquors, including those liquors and beverages commonly known and called near beer." Georgia stipulates among other things that prohibited liquors shall Include: "AH malted, fermented or brewed liquors of any name or description, man ufactured from malt wholly or In part, such as beer, lager beer, near beer, por ter and ale, nnd all brewed or fermented liquors and beverage- In which maltose Is a aubstantlal Ingredient, whether al coholic or not." In Indiana there Is an amendment pending to strike out the one half of 1 per cent, alcohol permitted at present. Indiana construes "Intoxicating liquors" as meaning: "All malt, vinous or spirit uous liquor containing so muc'.i ns one half of 1 per cent, of nlcohol by volume, or any other Intoxicating drink, mix ture or preparation of like nature; and all mixtures or preparations containing such Intoxicating liquor, whether pat ented or not, reasonably likely or in tended to be used as n beverage, and all other beverages containing so much as one-half of 1 per cent of alcohol by vol ume." Michigan construes "Intoxicating liquors," as: "Any vinous, malt, brewed, fermented or spirituous liquors, nnd ever)- other liquor or liquid containing Intoxicating properties which Is capable of being used as a beverdge, whether medicated or not. and all liquids whether proprietary or not. which contain alco hol anil arc capable of being used as a beverage ; nnd all mixtures, compounds or preparations, whether liquid or not, which are Intended when mixed with water or otherwise to produce py fer mentation or othorwlse an Intoxicating liquor." In Montana the phrase "Intoxicating liquors" means whiskey, brandy, gin, rum, wine, ale. spirituous, vinous, fer mented or malt liquors, and liquor or liquid of nny description, whether medi cated or not, which contains as much as per cent, alcohol and Is capable of 1 being used as a beverage Nrlirnnkn Plncra Limit, Nebraska names one-half of 1 per cent an the limit of alcohol content, nnd New Hampshire sets the limit at 1 per cent, of alcohol and specifies that any bever age "any part of- which Is Intoxicating" Is unlanful. Oregon has set the one.half ot 1 per cent limit and further bars: "All mix tures ""1111111111 Vi or J -enaratlqy wnotner uquia or not, wnicii are in-1 tenuea wnen mixca wun water or oth erwise to produce, by fermentation or otherwise, an Intoxicating liquor." In South Dakota hard cider, absinthe and cordials arc included under the head of "Intoxicating liquors." Utah Is like Virginia and puts the ban on fruit preserved in nlcohol. and de flnea liquors as: "All fermented malt. vinous or spirituous liquors, alcohol, wine, torter, ale, beer, absinthe, or any other Intoxicating drink, mixture or preparation of like nature and all malt or brewed drinks; and all liquids, mix tures or preparations, whether patented or not, which produce Intoxication." In Virginia tho words "ardent spirits" as used In the act embrace: "Alcohol, brandy, whisky, rum, gin, wine, porter, ale, beer, all malt liquors, absinthe, and all compounds or mixtures or ury ot them with any vegetable or other sub stance ; and all llqtilds, mixtures, or J preparations, wnctner paienteu or omcr wise, which will product Intoxication." West Virginia takes a detcfmlned stand and says: "All malt or brewed drinks, whether Intoxicating or not shall be deemed liquors within the meaning of this act."

The message said that an agreement had been reached in the case of one defendant, but that, the opinions were so far apart on the others after twenty-eight hours tha agreement ap peared hopeless. The Jury reported that many ballots had been taken In which there had been no change In the vote. Tho court said that the esse had taken a long time to try and he was hopeful I that a positive result might be attained. He Instructed the Jurors to resume aeiioerations. j-.rnest it Hunter, foreman, gave ad ditional Information about the situation of the Jury. "I wish to say that this has not been my , first experience as a Jurlor," he said. "I am delighted to say, however, that for the first time In my experience a Jury has deliberated without passion or animosity on the part of any of Its members. It has given the most careful consideration to the testimony and the evidence. I believe I voice the opinion of all the Jurors when I say that, regardless of time. It will be Impossible to arrive at a verdict" Judge Hand complimented the Jury on the conscientious way It had gone about Its work. He said that If all the Jurors were of a similar opinion It might bo desirable to declare a mistrial In the case of all the defendants except the one about whom an agreement had been reached. George E. Hall, Juror No. 9, stood up and In positive tones said that he did not agree with the foreman. "I think If we are given a llttlo more time we may come to a definite conclusion," he said. Judge Hand sent the Jury back to its room. It was taken to dinner at 7 o'clock without further word from it. A crowd that filled the court room made Its own deductions from the clues to the attitude of the Jury contained In the dialogues on this visit to the court room. Afterward, the O Leary family and several hundred sympathizers lap- peared to be more confident of a fnvor- able result. Jeremiah O'Leary, with the effects of the long trial and Imprisonment, showing plainly in the lines of his face and In his nervous msnner, watched the Jurors In tently. After they retired, John Jerome Rooney, who sat near him at his coun sel's tables, attempted a Joke abput his appearance. O'Leary did not like It. Who Is worried?" he asked sharply. "I don't worry." The Jury asked for Instructions short ly before 1 o'clock yesterday nftrrnoon. United States Commissioner General of Immigration Hon.
