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.

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

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

puccearful competition with the leead
