Appleby, sec retary of the committee. Tho mooting of the oxecutlvn eommltteo of tho republican or ganization, Bchcdulcd for lolay, wan postponed becauae Jako llamon, national committeeman, had been called to Chicago. WASHINGTON. Aug. 11. Tho nnvy department for the lanl few dayn has been holding conforonccH with leprosentallvca of the ohlpyurd workers' unions, and It wan ru rnored hero that on Increaso In wages was to ba made Iteeently tlm navy yards have rjono Into competition with tho pri vately owned shipyards to get re pair work on merchant Milps and tho former German liner Georga Washington wan taken from Now York to the Iloston navy yard to ba reconditioned as a passenger liner r for tho I'nltcd States Mall Steam ehlp company. In regard to tho attltudo of tho navy department, Max Lowe, sec retary of the New York section of the Atlantic roast shlplMillilers' as sociation, gavo out tho following statement' "Manufacturing plants as well as ihlpyards aro greatly disturbed over the report that the navy department has under consideration tho subject of raising tho wages In tho navy yards Tho private sntpyards havo taken tho stand that the wages paid hy tho navy yards aro amplo at tho present time, , particularly In view of tho bonus of 76c per day now paid nil navy yard workmen over and abovo their regular wage, tho 30-day vacation ram year with pay, pay for all holidays and for Batur day afternoons during June, July Of and August when tho workmen do not work. Special rates aro given to foremen. The shipyards believe that an Increaso In wages In tho navy yards will Impose a corrc unending Increaso In tho prlvnte Hhlpynrds and result In a substan tial loss due to tho tncreaso In tho cost of ships now under oonirtruc tlon for private owners, based on tho presont wage schedules, It will Place thorn tinder a handicap moro serious than that endurod now In competition with foreign shipyards. Shipyards ore paylnng tho highest wages that are being paid to me chanics In any manufacturing In-, dustry. If men will work steadily1 in tho shipyards their returns aro far In excess to tho demand of tho present cost of living. "In anticipation of the proposed raise In wagos of the navy yards, labor unions are now presenting demands to private shipyards for an lncroAHi In wages, with threats of striken to enforco them. Tho proposed action of tho navy depart ment has already commenced to up set the shipbuilding Industry at a time when every effort Is being made to conserve this Industry as ona oc tho basic factors In main taining a successful and an ado- nuato merchant marine. "Shipbuilding touches almost every other mechanical Industry, Including the manufacture of boil ers, electrical equipment, transmis sion machinery, and foundry prod ucts. Manufacturers In theso In dustries feel that their plantu will also bo affected by any Increase In the navy yards. All manufacturing plants In tho vicinity of navy yards will oe subject to agitation and un rest followed by cessation In work In tho event that tho navy yards Increase their wages." CROP ESTIMATE IS FLATTERING Many Reports Show Con dition Considerably Above Normal. OKLAHOMA City, Aug. 11. Tho United States bureau of crop es timates and the state board of ag riculture report crop conditions during July an exceptionally good. It Is usual In thin state for the average condition or crops to fall S per cent between July 1 and August 1, but this year thero has Docn a, deterioration of only z per cent. Toward the clown of the month, parts of tho north and south thirds of tho tto boc-uno too dry for many of tho crops and efficient plowing was made Imprac ticable. Duo to tho excellent con dition of soil after tho harvest of small grains, and also to the grow ing understanding of tho value of early plowing, a much greater urea has been plowed or listed than Is common at this time. The preliminary rnlmato on yield per aero of winter vrhcut Is 18 bush els, denoting that tho Oklahoma (roil Is upwards of 4U.000.00 ) Inlith els. The best jieMs occurred In the southwest, west and north dis tricts In tho order given and the poorest In the northeast which had suffered considerably from Insect and fungus. Uist year tho yields were bct In tho southwest, south and east districts. Inquiry among our correspondents discloses that fully CO per cent of tho wheat farm ers aro provided with storage fa cilities; also that In tho north, northwest and west districts, where most of tho farmers ro owners, al most 70 per cent have means to properly tako earo of their grain. Whereas In 191J tho quality of wheat cm J 7 per cent of normal, that threshed no far this year la testing H per cent. The condition of com up to late In July was very murh better than tho lfr-year average and practically the satno as orf Jury 1. Since tho beginning of August dry weather has hurt late corn considerably- -murh of the early plantod having already matured, Tho oats harvest had been prac tically completed early In July and much of the crop Is threshed. The best ylilds aro found In the south west, west and center districts, Tho quality of tho grain is proving bet ter than that of I nut year. Orsln soightims have also con tinued In better condition during July than Is usual. Thn 10-year average condition on July !, Is ZZ Per cent; on August I, 76 per cent. This year tho condition on July 1, wa SS per rent, and 87 per cent on August 1. Tho broonicorn hasvert has pro gressed rapidly In the southern sec tions. The first bmcs In Lindsay wero marketed during the last days of July Tho condition of tho crop deteriorated somewhat during July, yet not nearly as much as Is usual at this tlmn of tho year Tlie condition of cotton shows a marked Improvement oer tho June 2f report and forecasts a crop of upwards of n million hales. In fart, no year since statehood hnn shown such a pronounced advance. This year Is very stmllnr to 1919 which also as unfavorable to the crop In Its early stages and later produced successive Improvements untlt tho .-..'.vent of dry wAth.tr In August. All districts show a belter con dition figure, many reports helng considerably abovn normal. Tho Important southwest district has tho lowest condition figure, yet lj about S per rent belter than on Juno 2S Tho west, renter and east districts havo an Identical condition Indicat ing that this year there Is a belt extending through tho central por tion of tho state from east to west which has beu exeoptlotvalry f.i vored.
