scarcity of tonnage to load foreign
noted in the Sunday pf*r-IsT*iii
osorflk. appear* to be only temporary,
and indications pes fit to a supply e*jual
to the demand before the middle of
April Freight* however, are very
grni at prices largely in txotm of rat m
for a corresponding period last year.

Being adtcd by the Poer-lyratxi
oaaeaa correspondent to give his
view* concerning the cause of the
prevent scarcity of tonnage and the
prospect for the immediate future,
Mr. Jame* Griffiths, jf the shipping
firm of Me«r«, Griffiths, Meyers &
The prime cause of the advance in lam
her freights can be attribeted to the coal
strike la Australia A ianre number of
vessel* have been lying la Australian ports
waiting to toad coal for Pacific coast torts,
and onr supply of tmmSa has been almost
entirely that off California ports nsed to
get (ram 15 to » reset!* a swath, the ma
jority of them wooden ««mris that came
to Paget npund to Joed lumber. We bar®
had none now for nearly four months.
Again ocean freight* advanced all over
the world, and this adraa*e took a number
of suitable vessel* oat of the lumber trade.
Hbips do not seek In tuber when they can
find more profitable cargoes. Lnmbsr Is
the last thing an iron veseei want* to carry.
Wheat freights, however, have declined 19
shillings to 12 shillings * pence from the
pries of three months ago asd this will
tend to relieve the presrare.
Vessels which have loaded coal sisce the
•trike to Australia ended are beginning to
arrive in California port*. Sixteen vesnels
are now on the way from Australia to San
P«dr<> and Sen Diego, most of them avail
able for lumber. My impression 1* that
the present scarcity of tonnage will be re
iieved within the next ten weeks.
I)e»pite the fact that several coast
ing vessels are loading cannery sup
plies for Alaska, there is ample ton
nage for the coastwise lumber trade.
The outlook (or a large and profit
able foreign luml»er trad* for the com
ing year is certcinl v bripht. Htocke in
Australia have run very low, in conse
quence of lack of stipplv, ami price*
are well maintained. t"he demand,
not only at Melbourne, but at Ade
laide and Brisbane, is steadily increas
ing. Tbe same statement held* good
for tbe east and west coa-t-». and Val
paraiso promises to be a big customer
on account of the general bustnens
activity there. Buenoi A.yres will
take much more lumber than la.it
year, if ships can l>e secured to carry
it, and five ve**els have been chartered
for London direct. 11ts the «ame old
storv of I'uget Hound fir needing only
"to be seen to be appreciated."
The American bark Charles B. Ken
ney will load a cargo of gas coal at
Newcastle for Seattle, terms private.
This is believed to be the first rargo of
coals taken to Seattle. The old Maw
about the transportation of fuel natur
ally presents itself.
