Now their yard labor costs have increased materially, and 1 think they will never he so low again. "I believe that by the standardization of IpfM of ves sels, and by -v< lali/.ath >n In building. Americans will in the future be able to compete successfully with the ship builders of ANY other nation!" Thus coincident with the consideration by congress of the ad ministration ship bill, designed to aid and encourage the develop ment of the American merchunt marine, comes news that the long despaired-of shipping industry has begun to follow the rest of American Industry on the way to world supremacy! More ships than ever before were building in the United States —about ;1J0 —are now under construction in the bO leading yards of the country- Over $:t!i,000,00t» of fresh capital was invested in ship ping corporations In the year just closed! According to the New York Journal of Commerce, the capital invested In new shipping companies during the last five months of 1115 was $16,929,000, against $1,x..4,0 00 in the same period of 1914! Eighty-two ocean-going vessels are now being built in eastern shipyards, at a cost of $70,000,000; and each is going to fiy the American flag! The principal cradles of the new American merchant marine are at Fore River, Quincy, Mass., along the Delaware and the Chesa peake, and at Newport News, Va. The Delaware is already calling Itself the "Clyde of America." Old plants abandoned 20 years ago are abruptiy coming to life. Signs of great activity are Been at two long dormant yards at Bath. Me., while the John Roach yards, Chester, Pa., are building two merchant ships, after a quarter of a century of idleness.

When this powerful play was written its Hungarian author probably had no Idea that his country would soon be plunged into the great est war in ail history, and yet had lie positively known what was to come he could hardly have penned a more human document upon the subject of preparedness. It will be re membered that "The Typhoon" has to do with the activities of the Japanese in their world search for knowledge of the do ings of other peoples. Mr. White side impersonates a Japanese dip lomat in the play, and it Is per haps the strangest and most ef fective characterization he has ever given to the stage. Comedy Scenes In Wilkes Drama One of the most amusing com edy scenes in "The Call of the North" at the Empress tin .nrr this week Is that between the two canny Scots who have made a compact never to marry. Hoth of them have fallen victim to tho (harms of a dashing widow visit ing the trading post. She learns of the compact and encourages each, then when they agree to break the com pact, she refuses them both. The play Is a dra matization of Stewart Edward White's widely read story, "Con juror's House." It is brilliantly acted by the Wilkes stock com pany with Norman Hackett and Phoebe Hunt in the leading roles. SECOND GILLIES TRIAL IS SLOW OLYMPIA, Feb. 9.—Extreme ly slow progress was made yes terday In drawing a jury for the second trial of J. F.
