PROMISE OF SHIPS
Hurley Says Contracts Will
BUILDERS DEMAND JUSTICE
Shipping Board Chairman Ad
mits Unfairness Done.
HOG ISLAND CASE EXPOSED
Government Official Confesses Work
Is Continued Since Yard Is
Left "On Hands' of TJ. S.
OREGOXIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. May 28. Pacific coast ship
builders won a victory today when the
shipping board agreed at the end of a
hearing lasting; for nearly three hours
to allocate ship contracts in such a way
that there will be no immediate idle
ness in western yards.
The builders told the shipping- board
that they had not been fairly treated
and Chairman Hurley conceded that
probably some individual injustices had
resulted from the suspension of con
tracts. Congressmen Are Present.
Chairman Hurley, vice-president, and
John A. Donald and R. B. Stevens of the
shipping: hoard occupied seats at the
hearing table, with J. L. Ackerson, man
ager of the emergency fleet corpora
tion, and John H. Rosseter, director of
operations for the board. All of the
senators from Oregon, Washington and
California attended, besides Represen
tatives McArthur and Hawley of Ore
gon, Miller or Washington ana ioian.
Lea and Elston of California.
Harrison S. Robinson of San Fran
cisco opened the case for the ship
builders, asserting that unless there is
a reinstatement of cancelled contracts
there will be several idle or partly idle
yards on the Pacific coast within the
next two or three weeks. He further
declared that unless contracts in large
number are reinstated every steel snip-
yard on the coast will be out of work
by the end of December. He declared
that it costs the shipping board $82 a
ton to cancel the Pacific coast con
tracts, although the board's own
figures place this loss at only $30. He
showed that the shipping board esti
mates do not take into account all
of the losses.
Board's Defense Assailed.
As Mr. Robinson proceeded Senators
Chamberlain and Jones and Represen
tatives McArthur and Nolan began to
strike at the weak point in the ship
ping board's defense of Pacific coast
cancellations by inquiring about Hog
In the course of his statement Mr.
Robinson said 1,745,924 ons of steel
vessels had been built by the 18 Pa
cific coast yards between August 3,
1917, and May 13, 1919, or 55 per cent
of the total production in the United
states during that time. When it came
to cancellations, he said, the board had
left the yards with 750,000 tons of con
tracts, cancelling 785,000, whereas on
the Atlantic coast 2,250,000 'tons were
being built. Pacific coast costs, he
said, were $199 a ton, while at Hog
island they had averaged $256 per ton
on the first 17 ships.
"We'll not know the cost at Hog
island until 25 or 30 ships have been
delivered," Chairman Hurley inter
rupted him. "I think your costs are a
Chamberlain Asks Questions.
Mr. Robinson rejoined that the gov
eminent was furnishing the plant at
Hog island and had to provide for other
costs as well, which the Pacific coast
builders were taking care of them
Senator Chamberlain of Oregon de
manaed to Know wny the board was
continuing to build at Hog island. Mr.
Hurley responded that it was because
the yard was on its hands.
J. H. Rosseter, director of operations
for the board, asked the builders to be
ready to make lump sum bids for con
tracts and said that so far the board
had been unable to secure definite
In discussing proposals to substitute
new types of ships for those now con
templated for construction in Pacific
coast yards, Mr. Rosseter said Ameri
can builders had been offering to build
ships for Great Britain and France for
$142 a ton, whereas the price to the
United States had been $199.
Mr. Robinson concluded by declaring
that all of the ship ways on the Fa
cific coast would bo vacant by Febru
ary, 1920, under the present govern
ment arrangement, while the Hog Is
land and other government and private
yards on the Atlantic coast would be
able to run to 1921.
liDg Island Costs Great.
It wat shown that the cost of build
ing ships at Hog Island is approxi
mately $56 a ton greater than in the
Pacific coast yards.
When Chairman Hurley undertook to
; defend continuing the work at Hog
Island while cancelling tho lower-
I riced contracts on the Pacific coast.
c.n the ground that the steel in large
quantity is fabricated and delivered
at Hog Island, he brought quick -retorts
lrom Senators Chamberlain and Repre
sentative Nolan, who declared tha
much of this material could be shipped
to the Pacific coast to keep western
shipyards going- and be manufactured

Party Leaders Intimate That Inves
tigation May Go Beyond
WASHINGTON. May 28. Republicans
made their first move in congress to
day toward beginning their proposed
investigations of war expenditures. A
resolution approved by party leaders
was Introduced by Representative Gra
ham of Illinois, calling for the ap
pointment by Speaker Gillett of a spe
cial committee of 15 members "to in
vestigate fully all contracts and ex
penditures made by the war depart
ment or under its direction during the
Early action on the measure is
planned by the republicans.
Party leaders said the resolution
merely contemplated enlargement of
the standing house committee on war
department expenditures, consisting of
four republicans nd two democrats, and
headed by Mr. Graham. Provision for
the larger committee. Floor Leader
Mondell said, will be made "because
there are a number of branches in the
department which it may be deemed
wise to examine separately" through
"The purpose of the Investigations,
as i nail the committees that will un
dertake work of that character." added
Mr. Mondell, "is accurately stated in
the legislative programme promulgated
by the republican conference at the be
ginning of this congress, as "such in
vestigations as to inform the people
of war expenditures and serve the pub
lic interest.' "
The resolution was referred to the
rules committee, headed by Represent
ative Campbell, Kansas, who said he
anticipated that the resolution would
be called to the attention of his com
mittee next -week.
Party leaders intimated the investi
gations might assume a wider scone
than inquiry merely into the war de
partment. It was said that the com
mittee might investigate expenditure of
the $100,000,000 war fund given the
president for discretionary disposal and
also for an investigation of the war
risk insurance bureau.
HINES SEES PROSPERITY
Director of Railroads Optimistic
After Western Trip.
WASHINGTON, May 28. Highly fa
vorable conditions and an outlook for
excellent business were reported today
by Director-General Hines of -the rail
road administration, after an exten
sive trip throughout the west. He ex
pressed a belief that the reconstruc
tion process now under way would cre
ate a big industrial revival, because of
the arrested denyind for many products
not produced during the war and the
large buying power of the public, due
to high wages and high prices for rec
ord farm crops.
Until the industrial situation is clar
ified, officials of the railroad adminis
tration do not expect to consider an
increase in freight rates to compensate
for the increasing deficit arising from
reduced business after the armistice.
CHICAGO SCHOOL HEAD OUT
$18,000 Superintendent Removed
as Result of Political Contest.
CHICAGO, May 28. Chicago's recent
ly appointed superintendent of schools,
Charles E. Chadsey, whose salary was
fixed at $18,000, was replaced today
through actions of a newly appointed
school board, by Peter A. Mortenson.
A political, contest is back of the
change. Mr. Chadsey, In over two
months' incumbency, has never received
any of his salary.
Mr. Chadsey is well known among
American educators. He formerly was
superintendent of schools at Denver
and later at Detroit.

today, will present a counter claim of
12.850,000,000 marks for damage from
the allied blockade as an offset to the
reparation demands of the allied
The counter claim is based largely on
the alleged effects of the blockade upon
the life and health of -the Tlvilian pop
ulations. It is argued that, roundly, a
million births were prevented as a
direct result of the food blockade upon
the vitality of the women. The same
cause, it is contended, increased the
deaths approximately 800,000. Lack of
milk for young children, absence of
rubber and cotton for hospital use and
interruption of supplies of quinine,
camphor and other medicaments were
further factors in the losses, according
to the German argument.
Allies' Reply Prepared.
Should the Germans open this field
of inquiry the allies are prepared to
reply effectively by reference to the
far greater decrease of births and in
crease of deaths in France, Belgium,
Poland, Roumania and Serbia, as a di
rect result of the German war meas
ures. The allies possess the German offi
cial figures showing that the milk pro
duction in Germany during the war

row of Portland as committeeman from
Oregon. Newton McCoy presented tho
proxy of W. H. Hornlbrook, who re
signed as committeeman several months

of the state central committee at which
Morrow was chosen had not been
legally called, but the claim was not
recognized. This was the only contest.
The committee adopted a resolution
congratulating President Wilson on his
