They show that the Allies are determined to support the armies in the field by : cutting off as far as possible all I supplies for the German army from \ neu t ra l sources through a tightening : of tbe blockade. Attention was called at the confer j ence to the necessity of preventing ; Sweden from supplying Germany ; w * tb metals and the general opinion was tba t hereafter the neutrals I should be compelled to furnish the j Allies with goods of their own pro | duction which they cannot consume I in exchange for supplies from the Allies. They will be required to use j their own ships for this trade. "Such is the new blockade form ula, which must be strictly applied, and which will make it impossible for Germany to continue the strug gle," said one declaration of the con ference. The extent to which the United States will be influenced by the decisions of the London confer ence has not been revealed, but that this government is in accord with them is evidenced by the rigid re strictions placed upon exports to i.. ~ - ... the European neutrals from this . ,view.

Soon thereafter, 500 more are expected to | j cordance with advices given out from reliable sources. 1000 men, many of thgm doubtless men with families, to be added to the popula tion of this city, a city already crowded from a standpoint commodations. Government officials are writing! j the Chamber of Commerce to as-j I certain conditions here in regard to ! accommodation which men employ i ed in the s-overnment wnrk come here to take part in the same J work. This information is in ac . | j j I : of • cvernment work may ; find. Snould property owners fail j to proviee - or tne great increase. ' which is confidently expected by all men who have made investiga tions to be of a permanent nature, it is probable that the government will take a hand and build a cantonment here for the men who are to work at shipbuilding. The effect chat such a move would have on the establish ed business districts of Morgan City is a question in the minds of many merchants. Should the government boarding and rooming barracks for workmen be established at the scene of the Union Bridge and Construc tion Company operations, it has beer, pointed out that -new business es tablishments would spring up to provide the big new settlement with all the necessaries of life and that j the merchants now established and in a position to ';ji; > car? of many ! times the custom thaï now falls to I them would suffer by the move. Boarding houses, hotels and restau rants would probably lose a great deal cf business which they might get should the new comers be housed throughout the city in the usual manner. But the greatest loss would probably be experienced by j the owners of vacant property who j might improve their holdings and 'derive splendid returns therefrom. Property owners and capitalists of Morgan City have given serious thought to the question of building rent residences here, but there is ex isting an uncertainty in the minds of many as to the permanency of ship building operations on their present enforced scale. This hesitation is held as justified when it is consider ed that the Union Bridge and Con struction Company may, perhaps, complete only the one contract on which they are now working. Being absolutely fair minded, the officials of this great company state that while their operations here may be continuous they are not yet in a po sition to so state. Yet it is the be lief that the building of ships will be of a permanent duration at thi s , point and that the operations will -- be on even a greater scale in the future. The character of the yard being established here by the Union Bridge and Construction Company îeads to , the belief that U wiU be P er ' manently used for shipbuilding The site supplied for the yard by Mrs. M. M. Young and her sons is perhaps the finest on the gulf coast and the equipment and ways being built on it are acknowledged to be supe rior ac-i:'"V"r V ^V ar ? n °Z ZS*'?. in the Gu!f Coast section. Should 'the company of famous bridge builders now occupying this site de cide to vacate it upon the termina tien or' their government shipbuiid-1 ing contracts, it has been pointed ou f that the great demand for ship? ' D y private owners which the er. ,! ~ ' Vf - ar will create will demand utilization of all the shipyards the world for many years to come and that the wonderful facilit: ■? here established will be eagerly sought by builders who must sup ply that demand.
