With the coming of frost the sanguine
onl of the tourist, whether he la a mere
professional lounger or & tired business
man, turns to the contemplation of
tropic ftles and the absorption of reI
freshment forbidden in the domain of
' Uncle Sam, but not on his passenger
hips outside the^tliree mile limit, liebefore
the catrastrophe of war upset the
universe and sent huge argosies down
among the mermaids the tourist could
count on havinar a iovous tw > months
I or more afloat and ashore under radiant
skies In Italy, southern Francs, Egypt
and ether pleasant parts of the Near
East. Excursions are not headed in
that direction now because of unsettled
political and Industrial conditions along
all shores of the Mediterranean, and the
American exodus of this fall and the
winter will be to the island glories of
the Caribbean and to pleasant places in
' South and Central America.
Steamship men share with other obj
servers the opinion, really a conviction,
; that a large part of tl\? multitude that
> Is expected to visit the Cuban capital,
i the greatest magnet in the Antilles, is
influenced In its flight largely by the enforcement
of the Eighteenth Amendment.
But much the larger half of the travelers
bound for balmy seas, especially
those In the great excursions made up of
folk from the Middle West, are go.ng
Caribbean-way because it is easier than
taking the old pre-war route overseas
and there are no chances of getting
mixed up in sudden revolutions and being
leld up by Bolshevik bandits.
Pre-liVar Travel Seen.
Steamship men hereabout are optimistlc
ot only about the passenger business
to the Rpanli\h Main but are Inclined t?
think that fleets bound for Europe, particularly
British and French ports, will
carry as many passengers, considering
the lange number of line carriers out of
comrataalon. as in a similar season Defore
the war.
The contrast between a late October
showing of liners In the Atlantic lanes
In 1913 and now can" hardly be called
heartening to the man In the street who
does not know much about Atlantic
travel. In considering this contras* it
I Is well to recall that the fleet of seven
years ago was made up largely of German
liners, only a few of which are In
service now, and many were going to
and coming from the Mediterranean. }
But for the coal strikes abroad and at
home, the Bolshevlkl, Sinn Fein and the
H. C. of L., It was said at offices of
Atlantic liners, there would be little
material difference In the traffic of this
fall than the fall before the war. The
big lines are-getting ready for a rushing
business In the spring, and they believe
they will be able to handle It with the
fleets they will have in commission then.
The Cunard Company, which is building
a skyscraper down In Bowling Green
In anticipation of a mighty business, declined
to predict on the prospect. It was
| said that thousands wanted even at this
season to go abroad, but that passport
; troubles and unsettled conditions on the
other side deterred them. One man In
i the Wrst came here recently, and after
v restllng with the passport problem snld
he would postpone his trip until "this
damphool U. S. regulation Is over." This
Is typical of many cases of travellers
Who have cancelled reservations.
European Hooking* Fair.
The bookings for Europe at present
are said to be fair for the season, and
all ships bound for New York are filled
In cabin and steerage, the latter. Invariably
called "third cabin" by the HollandAmerica
and the Scandinavian lines.
The third class passengers coming this
way outnumber those brought In any
previous fall, even iu the years of the
tallest Immigration. A great majority
of these Immigrants arc Jewish, and th--y
come chiefly from Poland. The steerage
efflux from Italy Is also enormous
for the season, and, like the Jewish, Is
expected to continue through the winter.
The Immigrant movement (cm
Holland Is also heavy and the quality
very high, made up largely of farmers
and artisans, nearly all well to do and
travelling In second cabin, with their
household furniture. A large number of
Polish Jews also arc coming by the Holland-America
Managers of the big companies say it
should be remembered that the extraordinary
fall and winter Immigration Is due
in part to an accumulation of homesoekers
who were debarred during four years
of war from satisfying their desire to
gst to the new world. It Is belleven the
rush will continue all through next year,
and that It will include, after the (Tnlted
Mates and Oermany are technically at
peace, enormous numbers of Teutonic
people, weary of the muddled condition
of things and the ill-fare In their country's.
The International Mercantile Marine
atao la hopeful of big business In the
prlng In European passenger traffic.
Its Mediterranean service will contlnua
through the fall nnd winter, and although
the cabin bookings are not large
at present the numbers are encouraging
and on the return trips the third class
accommodations will be all taken. None
of the hlg lines will have an around the
world cruise, which. I -cause of the dearnesa
of coal, v nnke the undertaking
unproflta toe Hamburg-Danzig
route la appealing to more Mnes and the
French stearoahlpa are entering the lists
with the American a^id Cunard fleets.
French Tonnage I nrknngi il.
Despite the sinkings In war time, the
Cunard and the French lines report that
their tonnage la approaching pre-war
proportions. In the case of France recent
reports by the French Government
indicate that French tannage la now
practically the same as before the war,
counting, of course, the German vessels
acquired. Chief among the new American
flag lines that have entered serl?
onsly Into the Atlantic trgdc la the
United States Mall Steamship Company,
which has taken over some of the best
of the German ahlps and now has a
total gross tonnage of about 300,000.
These ships will enter Into competition
with ttvope of the old established companies
with the distinct hope of taking
away some of the trade. The newest of
tho United Slate.; Mall fleet, the old
Xorth State, arrived veeterday from the
j Camden shipyards and will start SaturI
day on her maiden voyage to Queunatown,
London and lioulogne.
The United States Mail Line's entry
into the Atlantic passenger service at
the end of the summer season Is regarded
by some as a bit of commercial
daring, but the lino seema to think thai
the venture will be justified by results.
Their present bookings, while not large,
indicate that the travelling public Is go1
ing to give them a fair trial. On the arrival
here of the Creole State, now nearing
completion, tbe line will Inaugurate
! a weekly service between Xew York and
Europe. It shares in the hopefulness ol
' other lines in the coming of a big boom
in the spring. Another big ship Is being
; converted into an oil burner for the line
at the Todd Shipyards Corporation In
Urookl.vn and soon will be delivered. In
the spring, to help in transporting the
expected throngs Europeward. the
United States Mail will have thirteen
passenger ships in commission. Including
the George Washington, the Mount Vernon,
the President Grant and the Agamemnon.
Kprlng Exodus to Europe.
Whatever the spring may bring in
unexampled exodus to Europe, the late
fell and winter is surely going to break
a'l records In southward seagoing,
steamship men declare. There are many
more lines In the West Indies and
South American trade than before the
iiBuiucma m nn.|/ymts
papers filling more than a page Instead
of a mere column or ho, and they ar<
al" carrying Americans aftid Canadians
rnd folks of other nationalities to the
Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas.
The White Fleet of the United Fruit
Company reports an unparalled demand
foi berths, the bookings being filled fo
a solid month ahead, and still rushing
in. Hundreds are taking the twenty
three day cruises to Cuba, Jamaica Pan
ama, the Canal Zone and Costa Rica t.1
the newest arid finest of the fleet, the
Ulua and the Toloa. and thousands arc
booked by other ships for the oasis o1
There is a big tourist movement to the
west coast of South America by new
vessels of the Grace Line, which go dllcct
by way of the Panama Canal, and
by transhipment from other lhrcrs al
Panama, California Is also getting
tourists from the Atlantic seaboard, whe
prefer the leisurely route by way of the
j picturesque Caribbean and the Panama
j Canal.
A big appeal to the lover of semitropical
and tropical life Is made by the
International Mercantile Marine, whict
has taken three of its steamships from
the Atlantic route and is preparing them
lor West Indies, Canal Zone and Spanish
Main cruises. The announcement oi

York and St. Paul and the White Stai
liner Megantic for this service brouglk
Hoods of applications for berths. A
Chamber of Commerce/in a middle Wesl
city sent immedlatly for accommodations
for two hundred, and a group ol
prosperous merchants and financiers in n
Southern city were inspired to inquire 11
they could not charter one of the liners
for at least one cruise.
It is noticeable that few applications
fo; reservations have come from schoo
teachers, who have been numerous lr
previous excursions to the tropics, and
thai most of the parties that ask foi
accommodations are made up exclu
slvely of maies, which might indicate
that somebody prefers to do his dMnklng
apart from the women folk. The St

of fifteen and twenty-two days, respectively,
will be New Orleans, which is lm

Harold Talnter and his wife Kate
1 (nee Grey) of New York, whose esca- j
padee have cost Paris hotels, milliners i
| and Jewellers thousands of francs, were j
' ; each sentenced to two ycors In prison
! ! to-day. .
i I 'Talnter. who says he is a former offl'
j eer of the American army, claims to be-;
' long to a wealthy New York family. In (
1 his defence to charges of forgery and J
fraud, he said his wife was imprudent
j and extravagant, but did not Intend to
. i commit crimes. The police are invest!-,
. gating a claim that Talnter has a per- 1
sonal fortune of $800,000 and will In-1
herlt $2,000,000 from his grandfather,
, said to be a director of a Scotch bank.
! '
. ; According to a Paris despatch on Sep>
tember 10 Mr. and Mrs. Harold Talnter
got nearly $50,000 In clothing, Jewels,
. hotel accommodations and loans In
r Paris and Aix-les-Bains, without "paying
a cent, before they fell in with the
[ police. It was said that Mrs. Talnter,
. described as a handsome woman, was
. the more active of the two.
I At the time the two were arrested
s Taintor said he was a movie agent from
i Dos Angeles, well known to New York
cinema producers. He also said he was
. a former officer In the American army,
s On December 30, 1916, a despatch from
i San Diego. Oal., reported that "Uieut. ;
t H. H. Tainter" of the Twenty-fifth In- j
i ! fantry had been dismissed from the
army for passing checks for which he
' | had not sufficient funds la hank.
' , "I.ieut. Tainter" was said to be a mem"
! "ber of a New York family.
1 | Some of the Talnters' exploits In '
k Paris were the' borrowing by Mrs.
t Talnter of 11,000 francs from patients
at the American Hospital at Neuilly,
f where she was admitted for nervous
1 trouble and where she had "a private
' ward. Mrs. Talnter on another occa'
slon hired a limousine and, accompanied
by a beribboned maid, presented a let1

Just before their arrest the Tainters
had decided to return to the United

Freer Supply of Fuel and Labor
Hearts Beneficially on
Material Market.
Building material buying is reaching
its zero stage as far as the New York
construction market is concerned, according
to the Dow Service Daily Building
Reports. Prospective purchasers
seem content to await eventualities of
the immediate future. These incidents
include such factors in the building construction
Industry as finance, fuel supply,
freight car manipulation, unem
ployment at manufacturing centres and
Its effect upon mill production In tbe
building material production centres, export
and import influences, price stabilization,
liquidation of labor and the effect
the Investigation now In progress
may have upon building operations on
which estimates have been received but
not yet acted upon.
Building finance is expected to show
more interest in construction in general
after the close of the election campaign.
Fuel supply is improving. Brick manuj
facturers in the Hudson River district
reported at the close of the-week that
fuel supply was changing the manufacturing
situation there considerably,
i In one case 500 tons were desired and
the purchaser was accommodated with
000 tons. In another instance 350 tons
were called for and about half the
quantity was supplied, Xlight as concessions
In the matter of fuel supply
may appear to be, it lias been the cause
of changing the recent aspect with regard
to brick supply.
Incidentally, box car supply Is Improving,
bringing into this market
building material orders long overdue
but arriving at a time when there is
no buying to absorb It. What appears
to be a favorable trend as far as receipt
of building materials in finished
form is concerned really lias an adverse
counterpart at the building mateHal
manufacturing mills, where the Interstate
Commerce Commission ordei
curtailing the supply of open top cars
of the type usually employed in transportation
of raw material is actual!}
curtailing production.
Mm Recruited From Anto Plants
The wholesale release of skilled artisans
at automobile establishments lr
the West has been helping building material
and equipment mills to clear uj
their unfilled tonnages. There is, however,
a reaction to this trend, becausi
the buying market Is not freely c&lllnf
for material. If this policy is long continued
shutdowns at manufacturing centres
may be expected until the demand
comes back.
All eyes will be centred, therefore
upon the financial market during th<
next sixty days. If the finuneial clofun
policy, familiar to the building tradei
during the last nine months, Is con
tlnucd the late deplorable runaway prlc<
market can be considered as being
merely In a passing lull, emerging int<
full aotlvlty again as soon as demant
begins to be felt upon the low mill ant
dealers' supplies.
The fact that foreign glass mnnufac
turers are making themselves felt It
this market; that export cement demnnr
Is constantly pressing upon Atlanth
I seaboard manufaeturers; that lumbc:
has heard inquiries from clear acrosi
the ocean, and that metals are s<
closely pressed by foreign markets a
to make It easily possible to ecllps
fiomf^uc OUPlIirpn UL Inr iiiurin-n v, ai
merely emphasis the fact that Amerlcai
manufacturers arc giving American con
sumers the benefit of their present 11m
Ited outputs, even though the premlumi
offered frequently and lavishly by ex
port puvtiasers greatly overshadov
present open market prices for thcii
Price stabilization and liquidation o
labor wages nt mill centres were pri
marlly Influential in reopening the buy
ors' market a week ago. but the effect o
the Investigation into building construe
tlon practices is likely to be along th<
line of cancellation of projects upoi
which estimates 'have been received bu
which have not been formally accepted.
Inquiry May Force nig Shutdown
The recourse of building materia
manufacturers in tho event of a genera
cancellation movement emanating fron
local conditions, such as, for example
the Inquis'tion tnto local building condi
j tions, will be to close down indefinitely
like th'e lumber mills have done, or tun
their available stocks and supplies t
the export trade. Creiltt Is too scant
and will probably continue to be so untl
well after the turn of the year, to war
rant manufacturers to pile up stocks li
reserve. Inventory time will come be
fween now and the start of the 192
building season, and bunking credits an
likely to be unsympathetic with largi
stocks without a visible market.
Building material manufacturers an
at present catering to buyers' tuarke
