(BY HERBERT FELKEL.) Tallahassee, May 3.1 By a little motion made and carried during a busy time in the senate, only a handful of senators .saying "aye" when the mo tion was put, the office of state labor Inspector was saved from abolition for two years. The Carlton child labor bill, changing the gae limits, provid ing for an assistant labor inspector at a salary of eighteen hundred dollars a year and increasing the hea dinspec tor's pay from eighteen hundred dollars to $2".400 a year, had been amended to abolish the office of etate labor in spector and place the work under the probation officers of each city. "When the bill was reached on the calendar today a motion prevailed to send it to Judiciary A, where it prob ably will requiescat en . pace. So the present law remains on the books, and the atate labor Inspector with no as sistant will cnotinue to receive eighteen hundred dollars a year. Fish Bill In. The general fish bill, amending tlia present laws and granting certain ad ditional powers upon the state shell fish commissioner, was introduced la the senate today by Senator Malone. E.

' 212 West Cervantes Phone 813 TO BD SHIPS STILL HAVE PLACE ON SEA The life of a wood ship, like that of a ma n, is a risk. They, have their Alethusc lahs as well as their early tragedies. Some ships are" born to life upon the seas weak and mis shapen. Others, through the proved eugenics, of the Shipyard the mating of sound timber, the joining of stout beam aid flawless plank fare forti In vigor of strength and grace of line, fitted for long careers in the ad venturoua field of their predestined activities. Man is taught that If he will keep himself In good condition he will pro long hla years. The skill of the sur geon , is at, his command in the event of accicent or a diseased part that can be out away. The condition of a wood ship is in the keeping of the master of the ship, and as ship sur gery la an exact science, its life may be prolonged Indefinitely. Some wood ships grow old after the manner of some man, shifting their occupations to match their fail ing strength, until, decrepit and hope less, the rot their lives away in utter UselessnS3. Others retain ttye vigor of youth and not only earn their own way, but; enrich others to the last of their days. The "Dashing Wave," "built on the Pacific coast in 1854. and therefore 64 years old, is still in active opera tion on the coast, and, it is reported, is carrying perishable cargo and car rying It dry. Recently she put to her crec.it eleven round voyages be tween Tacoraa, Washington, and San Francisco, within a period of twelve calendar months. Wood ships of today can be and are as i toutly built as those of other days, and those built in answer to the demand of the hour, eerved a useful rurpose In the war and will now pats on to the pursuits of peace. There is a record of performance be hind them and they are in active ser vice tod ly. Those that are being sold by the United States shipping board are being sold from active service with th exception of wooden hulls in which no machinery has been in stalled. The fleet of wooden ships will aid in giving the proper balance to the new American merchant' ma rine which Is expected to travel all Sea lants In the development of the foreign commerce of the nation. Yards that have been released from government service especially those on the Pacific coast, have announced that they will continue the construction of wood ships for private and foreign account, and the declaration that "wod si ips are permanent neces ilties" has the support of veteran masters, ship operators and ship builder. E. W. Wright, manager of the Mc Eachern Ship company, of. Oregon, and identified for the greater part of his life with shipping affairs on the Williamette and Columbia rivers, gives the following Interesting facts about wood ships: . ' "Nearly, -forty years ago," he writes, "the wooden steamship 'Great Re public, 378 feet long, 44 feet beam, and with a carrying capacity of more than 5,000 tons, was in operation be tween the Orient and San Francisco. Not only was she a big carrier, but her wooden hull had strength suffi cient to support machinery that gave her a speed of nearly twenty miles an hour on the river. "Before and after the appearance of the 'Republic' , and; for years after long career having tested her strength wooden stetmer continued - to play a prominent part on most of the ocean highways, and is still doing so. "The durability of the wooden ship is another feature that has been time tested. Owned on the Pacific coast and engaged In the coastwise and off shore trade out of Pacific ports are 350 steam and" sail vessels that have seep from .20 to 68 years service. Of this list ' 68 have passed their 20th birthday; 53 are from 20 to 25 years old; 44 from 40 to 45 years old; ten from 4 to 50 years old; 5 from 50 to 65 years, old. and still in service are three wooden sailers which were built 61, 65 and 68 years ago. In t"hls list is the steamship 'Areata.' built in San Francisco 42 years ago, and in her olng career having tested her strength on every bar between Panama and Alaska. "With anything like proper care and upkeep, most of these vessels are good for , many years. . ' "It is a . noteworthy fact that salt water, the very element that rusts and ruins the metal shlpt IS the best known, preservative for - a- , wooden Ship. - "The truth of that old adage that history repeats itself never had a better prospect for verification than in the shipping outlook that will con front us at the close of the war. "When the Civil War ended, a big fleet of government transport were turned loose and many of them came around the Horn to the Tacific north west. These old wooden steamers op ened up new trade fields and aided enormously in developing those al ready open. They ran to Alaska, to Central Smerica, to Mexico, Hawaii and the Orient, and had the govern ment at that time encouraged and pro tected shipping as it Is now doing, our ocean prestige would never have been lost. "Five years before the war began, the late James J. Hill, master of transportation, made the remarkable statement that the business of the country was increasing so rapidly that it was imperative that the railroads immediately expend $5,000,000,000 in betteremnts and equipment, this in the face of n increasing traffic at Panama and Tehauntepec. The ex traordinary business due to the war was not needed to demonstrate that Mr. Hill was accurate in his predic tions." Mr. Wright believes that Some re lief from the inevitable congestion of rail traffic must be found in the water routes between the two coasts. . "There are immense possibilities for the development of thi'3 kind of traffic between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts," he continues, "and no other caft is so well adapted for this trade as the economically-built and economically-operated wooden steamer of from 3,000 to 5,000 tons. "We want to use these vessels in getting, into the rich trade fields rrom which -the Huns have ousted thorn selves by. their "own. folly and wicked ness. The wood ships built for govern ment account under war orders were practically all steamers of from 3,000 to 5,000 tons and those that can be released from government service are now being offered for sale in a mar ket where ship tonnage was never so scarce or ireight rates so high. A complete record of the perform ance of the wood ships kept by the shipping board gives in definite form the service rendered, the government by this class of vessels and the prom ise "or future usefulness; Out of the entire fleet operated under control of the shipping board, Chairman Edward N. Hurley recently announced, but three wood ships have been lost. The life of a wood ship, therefore, while a risk, would not appear to be so great a rislc as is commonly be lieved. ' The actuary, as with lives of men, may be able to take a thou sand wood Ships and figure the ap proximate mortality each year among a thousand new sound ships, and fig ure the risk, but no man or group of men can point to a wood ship on the ways or newly launched and say what her years of active service will be. The youngest cabin boy may wither into old age and pass to his fathers while the wood ship upon which he spent his 'prentice years continues stoutly on her way, a useful and prof itable trader at home or oversea. In other days when the builders of houses built for centuries and not for the present as later became the fashion, timbers from wood ships what had been condemned were eagerly Bought as the bulwarks of construc tion, and in the staunchest old houses of England today ' can be found tim bers in such excellent state of pre servation that they appear to have been pertified which were obtained from the hulls of wooden ships whiclt have come to the end of useful careers after many years at sea.
