Foreign Equipment Reported.
Henri Doucct, machinery expert for
the French high commission, is to in
spect equipment at the Foundation
company's plant with a view to de
termining finally on the wisdom of
shipping the property to France, where
there is said to be an active demand
lor such Rear owing to the shortage
caused by the war a'nd the general
run down condition of equipment that
was in service so long when the war
rush was on.
Bayly Ilipkins, Pacific coast man
ager for the Foundation company, was
in the city yesterday and Is expected
to leave Seattle for the east tonight on
business having to do with future op
erations on the Pacific coast.
"Wo are to launch our sixth wood
Fteamcr for the I'rcnch government at
our Victoria, K. C plant tomorrow and
the first will be delivered June 10, and
that plant represents all of our ship
building activity in the west now," said
Sir. Hipkins. "Whether we will ex

shall finally carry out our original
plan of building steel ships, depends
on developments, and eo far I have not
been informed or any change that

Pointing to the permanency of the
shipping board as a factor in the
American merchant marine is the un
usual activity manifested by the United
States recruiting service. A special
campaign for one week was started in
Portland Monday at the branch re
cruiting office in the Owl Drug com
pany store. It is expected that 000
recruits will be sent to the West Seat
tle training station. Norman Manuel,
chief master-at-arms, is in charge of
the work here. Recent assignment of
a number of shipping board steamers,
to move shortly, will give recruits an
opportunity to return here for Portland
ships a soon aa their SO days' train
ing is over.
A report issued by the sea ser"Ice
tvureau, covering March, shows that out
of a total of 611SD men placed by the
bureau on American ships 50 per cent
were young Americans who have been
trained for the sea on shipping board
ships. The report also states 90 per
cent of the officers on American ship
are Americans. The Portland ranch

experienced men on steamers here.
Men from IS to S3 without experience
at sea who wish to enlist are urged
to call at the branch recruiting office.

Two opportunities will be afforded
Portland wholesalers and manufac
turers to ship direct to Honolulu dur
ing June, the 3S00-ton steamers Gly

dispatched from Portland under the
management of the Columbia Pacific

were principally merchandise.
"We propose to offer space at once
for the two June sailings, one being
for the early part of the month and
the other for the latter half, and there
Is reason to expect more cargo to be
moved than has been the case on any
single steamer so far," savs Manager
Srubbe of the Columbia-Pacific inter
ests. "In addition to merchandise there
is a demand in the islands for feed and

REFUSE EMPLOYERS' OFFER
Organization of 250,000 Workers
Issues Ultimatum Action
Gets Unanimous Vole.
OAKLAND, Cal.. May 21. Utiless a
satisfactory agreement to take the
place of the Macy agreement between
the shipbuilders oi' the Pacific and the
Pacific Coast Metal Trades council has
been reached by 10 A. M.. July 21, a
general strike will be called through
out the entire district affected, accord
ing to a rigned statement Issued here
today by C. h Grow and A. II. 3arth.
President and secretary, respectively,
of the Pacific Coast Metal TradeB
council, which represents approxi
mately 250,000 shipworkers and men
employed in allied crafts on this coast.
This action was decided upon at the
Convention of the council, which e!oe3d
in this city last Saturday after being
in session since May 6.
Many Point Rained.
The agreement drafted by the rep
resentatives of the workers provides
for a basic 44-hour week; 20 cents per
hour horizontal increase In wages for
all crafts: protection of the tafety cf
workers and sanitary conditions; the
elimination of all overtime except to
protect life and property; classifica
tion of the various trades to be stand
ardized, and other provisions of minor
importance. The proposed agreement
also provides for an adjustment board
to interpret and enforce the provisions
contained in the agreement.
"All of which," says the statement,
"Is essential to the stabilising of the
Industry and necessary to the protec
tion of the workers engaged in the
Mooney Strike Favored. -
Resolutions passed by the council In
dorse the six-hour work day; the
Mooney strike proposition: the setting
freo of all political prisoners: the
movement to bring about" Industrial
unionism within the American Federa
tion of Labor and especially the metal
trades, and a resolution in support of
A E. Miller, whose membership was
suspended by the engineers' interna
tional union, and whose clash on the
subject or California unionism with the
American Federation of Labor -is now
being settled in the courts.
The demand for a. new agreement fol
lows the referendum vote recently
tpken by the unions of the coast, which
resulted in the rejection by an over
whelming majority of the proposed
agreement submitted by the shipbuild
ers of the nation to representatives of
the employes at the recent Washing
i.oni Statement Invited. '
Following. In part. Is the statement
Issued by Chairman Orow and Secre
tary Barth of the Metal Trades council:
following tne Washington confer
nce of March 15 last between the rep
resentatives of the fleet shipbuilders
of the Pacific Metal Trades council and
he international officers ot the metal
rades department of the 1 American
Federation of Labor and the officers
of the Emergency Fleet corporation.
he tentative agreement submitted by
he shipbuilders as their maximum con
cessions was submitted to a referendum
vote of the m?n engaged in the ship
building industry of thlH coast.
The vote from all points was sub
mitted to the convention that met in
Oakland May C, the result being that
t was rejected by an overwhelming
majority showing that the tentative
agreement was unsatisfactory to the
men engaged in the shipbuilding In
dustry of the coast."
Conference Men Picked.
The statement relates details of an
unsuccessful attempt to get a confer
ence with the shipbuilders, and then
The delegates to the convention
went squarely on record as to its po-
Ition relative to securing an agree
ment covering hours, wages and gen
eral working conditions; also the cre
ation of a conciliatory board. By an
unanimous vote, the convention deter
mined: "That a conference commute of five
be elected, one to be elected from each
of the following sub-districts: Seattle,
Tacoma, Portland. San Francisco and
It shall be the duty of this com
mittee, in conjunction with the Inter
nationa; officers or the metal trades
department, to meet and confer with
the shipbuilders upon the proposed
'In the event a conference is refused
and a satisfactory agreement Is not
reached on or before 10 A. M. of July
21 next, a strike will b called through
out the entire district."
The statement then covers the points
outlined above as to demands.
