An Idea of the present scarcity ol
dyes, despite efforts of American dye

foreign products and their partial success.
Is given In the following statenyent
published recently in the Cind

(hat no dyes bad been received from
China or elaowhore for several weeks,
and It Is generally believed that this
source and all others where Oerman
dyes were present have been exhausted.
.Numerous Industries using dyestulfs
hnd come to depond upon natural dyes,
particularly logwood. The British embargo,
effectually Interfered with arrivals
In the United States of this
1 product. This means, trsde represen!
tatives say. that the United States Is
1 now thrown almost ontlrely upon Its
own resources, and. In view of the
progress mndo so far in the development
of n domestic Industry they see
j little hope for aby Improvement In the
situation for sovoral years to come,
' unless the war ends and outside sup'
plies nro obtainable.
Dr. iNbrton's report, showing thirtytwo
concerns manufacturing crudes,
intermediates and finished dyestulfs
in this country, is criticised as giving
a wrong Impression as to the actual
status of the Industry here. Particular
objection Is taken to the classlfleatlon
In this list or manufacturers
of nnlllne oil, which, It la asserted,
cannot rightly be termed a dye. Attention
was also called to the fact
that his list tends to present an exaggerated
Idea as to the progress of
the Industry, Including houses engaged
In the production of crudes and
Intermediates, wbteh are. temporarily
at least, lining turned to other purposes
than dye'manufacture.
Normally, the United States Imports
nbout 25.000 long tons of artificial
dyes. 22.000 tonB of which coma from
Germany. Accepting Dr. Norton's cellmates
as correct, the total production
In the Unltod States Is less than
three-fltths of the amount usually consumed.
For this reason trade factors
believe that, although production
may gradually ldVtease, the shortage
will grow more acute.
The situation In the textile Industry
Is also described by the Cincinnati Acquirer
of February 6, as follows:
Prices have boen moving up so rap|
Idly on standard lines during the last

buyers have not been able to keep Is
