MalrrtaJa In Iho millions oold, and sale* not credited on the headquarter* material hooka. Itlds fur supplies refused. Iho supplira Immediately aotd to lower bidder*, and by them r» cold to the higher bkldera at • profit. Throe am a ring admUalona are made by H 11. Miller, former director nf the shipping board aupply and aalea department, a a a When Ft. n. Millar aucceedrd J. I.ee Allen aa director of ahtp ping hoard supply and sales de partment. while the Itarde lump sum sale of materials wua pend Ing, Miller found tha books and account* of the department "In rotten shape," according to his ad missions. HI <ifC PRTVATK PROfITS IIIt»M KKHAUt PIAN lie found, he says, the Junk ring —the most active plunderbund at work on America's war remains— had managed to bring about a r» aalea baala which still exists — ahich caused and la causing the people gigantic looses, and resulted In the government holding for these speculators materials which could have been sold on a high mar ket - while the speculators went out to find buyers, and. after seillnz the suppllea at big profits, came laik to the shipping txsird and pure haited. The resales basts works this way Millions of dollar*' worth of sup piles were and are stored In ware houses and at yards on the I l * clOe coast, at Cleveland on the Great Ukm, at Wilson's Point. Sparrows l*olnt. New York, New London and llimlkd on the Atlantic roast aad all along the Gulf gna.-rt aa welL JINK WECrr-ATOItH GKT I.IST or M.\TKKIAI.H The Junk speculator* would, thru Indulgence of supply and sales <Us trlrt directors, secure lists of thaan matertaiis oLvaslfled aa to kinds. They would view the material*, ret prices at which they could buy from tha shipping board. Than they would ascertain what tha market waa. Next they would purchase ma Urtals on credit, to be paid tor a* moved. Then, while the shipping board held theee materials, paid f1t.000.- 000 annual overhead In supply and snles department, paid thousands and hundreds of thousand* In ware house and yard storage rentals on the** materials, the speculators— In some rase* using the supply and aalea department—would find pur chasers for this material at huge profits—sometimes 100 to 100 per cent—and would sell tha suppllea. snip noArui siion.u MAVK HAD PnoHTS When the snle waa anada the si>eculator would havw delivery made to the final purchaser from the shipping board warebotva. and would then pay supply and salra department for such materia! aa had thus been sold. Miller admits that thru the gup ply and salsa department there same materials could have been sold for account of tha shipping board at tha same prlcna secured by the specula torn. In many casew. when tha ma> ket snored, and while the mater ials depreciated, the speculator* did not cgrry out their contracts nnd the people were left "holding the bag." A case In point Is tha sale of oakum In the Gulf and Routh Af lantlc districts. Kvldence adduced before the congressional Investlgallng commit tee. and now admitted by Millet to lie true, showed thousand* of tons of oakum quoted In the bit trr part of l>2o at 22 cent* n pound sold »t the Uroe to I Met* A Co , of New York, for I\i c*nt« a pound. Itepresrntatlves of the supply and sales department at New Orleans previously hail sold this oakum to N'no A Co., of Kavannah. at cents a pound and had taken N'sn certified check to b(n<l the deal.

CIIAdS IN KKEPINO OK MATKKIAL ACCOUNTS Utter chaos characterized th« keeping of material accounts. In tha South, Miller admits, dls- trlct director* were selling the pen pie's supplies to th« Junk ring at absurd prlcea, extending credit* without proper security; making contracts, In fart, which the gen rrul director himself had no au thority to make And Washington know nothing aheut all this until NhlpplnK board special ajtrnt Kd.
