I H. S. TO RETAIN SHIP CONTROL Adjustment of Wages Will Permit Competition, Says Holland. If >' hair man Hurley, of the Emer gency Fleet Corporation. is able to persuade the British Seaman's Union to make agreement which if adopted will seoure a standardisation of wags* and certain other working- con ditions upon the .Vmencan basis, then In all probability the American ship- , owners ahd shipping men will be re- j Sieved from some of the apprehen- ? sions which they now confess they 1 feet respecting the future of the ' American merchant marine l*'or if Mr. Hurley is able to stain ; the consent of the British Seaman's j t nion. then our own shipowners and i shipbuilders will be able to msin tain successful competition u^onj equal terms with the British marine. It is a fact that some of the leading shipping men of the tutted States are looking into the future with some i 8 n siety. This. too. notwithstanding' the fact that we are certain to have I a merchant marine capable of trans porting all the international com-1 rneree which the United States can ! secure. Ami yet. notwithstanding the magnitude of our merchant marine, i ?hipping men resits? that in addition to ships and to free seas which en compass the world, something else Is necessary if there is to be satisfac tory development of American shla pmg. Should public interest in this ma - ter be fjuai to the public interest which has been maintained sine* un der Chairman Hurley and Charles M. Schwab, the United States showed' that It was capabte within a year and a half of organizing and operating the i largest shipbuilding industry in the ? world, ex, opting. possibly. that of England. there is no doubt that leg islation would be secured from Co 1- j Kress and methods l?e adopted which will make it possible to maintain to; the highest capacity our great mer- ! chant marine. ? %n>rrira'% ^arpriKina Kent. Every one will recall how great and nation-wide w;is the enthusiasm ! which was caused by the almost magic like growth of our shipyards ?*id the constant increase in the number of completed ships. Mr. Schwab takes pride and so does the country in the fact thaC in less than two years time we have built many steel ships and put them into com mission. In other nations, especially in Oreat Britain, something like aston- I ishment has been expressed at this sudden development in the United States of *hipb"Uding. and also m the fact that the capacity of our shipyards now exceeds that of any other nation. Should there be cor responding public interest in the maintenance of our merchant ma Tine then the apprehesions of the ship builders -Mid shipowners will be removed. The p?-ople should take interest In this, so the shipping men believe, because they are to be taxed in one way or another in order to meet l>iyment of $3.000.(H)0.which is 1 the amount Congress.<fcas appropri ated for onr shipbuilding undertak . i nxr Frrfdom of the Senn. rrn to have the ships and to be freedom of the seas commerce will b?* unimpair ? are also to meet with competition chiefly from Britain, peaceful competition. fr<t*9 to me^t this competition rven terms there remains, it is I. two factors to be considered then to be adopted. ">ne of the?e is rates and the other r'rvice We can get plenty of freight if the rates are satisfactory and if England does not underbid us in that respect. We can put npon the ocean spoedy vessels and that is a factor which is of some importance in the development and increase of our international trade. But can we establish rates for car rying the freight which will enable us to compete? aft is the opinion of comr>ett*nt ? men. that, at present, leaving out of consideration governmental op eration. the American steamship operator is now at a disadvantage. It ou rmerchane marin* is to achieve ! all that it should b able to ac-' c<xniphsh. this disad antage must be removed. Steamship men are very fair in their recommendations. They are even wllhhg to pay high wages: they do not ask that navi gat ion laws be greatly changed. But they cannot pay high wages and enter into successful competition, if England and other mariime ua- , tions have all the advantages which we possess and at the same time are able to pay lower wages. Reason able wages and good service will secure the freight and will enable the United States to send its com modities. food and manufactured, to all parts of the world. WilJ* ta Ur4????- b. vpvitar. Shipowners are not in entire accord with Chairman Hurley, who is per suaded that It will be difficult for Atricaa shpowners to secure crews every man of which is an American citizen. He believes that high wa^es. Hke high wages in the steel and other -^dustries. can tie offset by reduced xpenses. by perfected American or ganization. by obtaining fu?! at low rost. by the installation of the latest Improvements in equipment and the use of speedy loading and unloading apparatus At posts, similar in kind to those which have been used with great success in handling ore and grain car goes which are shipped through the Great Lakes. With Chairman Hurley's view ship builders are not entirely satisfied. He may be right, but they are not sure of it They believe that a competent commission upon which a representa tive of organized labor is placed, might by direful study, by visits to foreign countries, at* least be able to make re the government and ** t! Perfect method which maV; *i' Merchant marine. a?ter e is *9*4- *11 that is expertH id a regarded as a very WF* shipbuilders and shipowners have b-en cautious, considerate and reasonable in stating their views, and in hintlns at certain apprehensions which they have not escaped It seems incredible that after expending more than t3.\*'0.#>o.tw0 in ' establishing ?btpyurds ami in building ships a?>d adequately equipping them, our merchant marine, speedily after peat* is declared, should find itself so handi ? npped as not to be able to maintain puccearful competition with the leead b m r '^e nations.

As u result the stack market had* a sharp rebound from it* depressed condition.

By permitting brokers to borrow . unlimited sums on bonds and notes, the whole structure of loan* is af fected it is true this permission does not aocrue until next week, but j the faet that it is eoming does as . much good as its actual operation. because stocks are so low that most ! of the houses already have consid I erable leeway in loans. j Reports that Secretary MeAdoo would head the new independent steel products company'are said to be premature, but it is known thai he has the offer of the position at a salary far above any paid to even ! the highest officer of the govern ' ment. His international fame would ' be of great value to any concern | looking for business abroad. The War Department permitted I announcement of a liberty fuel which is said to take the place of I gasoline for all kinds of motors. If ? true, this is of tremendous impor , tance to the petroleum industry, and leading oil men were anxious yester j day to know the composition of the new fuel. It is known that for ? years the I'nited States Alcohol and the Distillers' Corporation have been working on a fuel to displace gaso line. If they succeed its supply will be limitless, because the material for making alcohol is found every where and in such vast quantities | that It could never all be consumed. | The fourth liberty bonds sold to a f new low record today, but now that 1 loan restrictions have been modified 'recovery in these is expected While the report of the president's intention to free the railroads imme diately affected all the railroad stocks favorably. Southern Pacific was the most active. TRADE TIPS.
