SIIlPriXG BOARD ' IS RAPPED
lia I'olletlc Declares "Vicious Prac
tices" Still Prevail.
WASHINGTON,' L. C, July 25. In
vestigation to determine if shipping
board policies have been "molded by
British influences" and are hostile to
organized labor was urged in' the
senate today by Senator La Follette,
republican, Wisconsin. The new
board, he said, apparently continued
the labor policy of the old board,
and a congressional inquiry was
needed to protect American mer
chantmen. If it was the purpose of the new
board to "change any of the vicious
practices of the old board, such pur
pose has not manifested itself in ac
tion so far as I have learned," he said.
Of the new organization's seven mem
bers, he added, "not one . . . ever
had any experience i rv the manage
ment or operation of ships," and an
Investigation would be helpful to the
board. The past policy of hostility
to organized labor, he said, had
driven men away from American
ships. He charged that "coercion and
tleception" had been practiced by
chipping board agents in recruiting

SAN FRANCISCO, July 25. (Special.)
An investigation into the opening of the
seacocks on the liner Hawkeye State has
been started by federal authorities and
officials of the Matson Navigation com
pany and the shipping board. Captain
Charles Peterson, master of the vessel, re
ported today upOn the steamer's arrival
here from Baltimore that the seacocks had
been opened on three different occasions
while the vessel was on the high seas be
tween Balboa and Salina Cruz, Mexico.
Captain Peterson intimated " that cer
tain members of the crew were suspected.
The vessel averaged 17 knots a,n hour from
San Pedro to this port. Captain Peterson
said that reports that the steamer was
without fresh water for days at a time
were untrue. He declared the trouble with
the condensers and the opening of sea
vents, which permitted sea water to run
into the fresh tanks, was responsible for
an absence of drinking water or six
nour. while the craft was approaching
Sallna Crux. Delay to the vessel which ;
made her arrival 12 days late, was due to '
the liniited facilities afforded at Salina
Cruz. The vessel was in port in Salina
Cruz for seven days.
There were 14.4 passengers in all classes
arriving here on the Hawkeye State. She
brought 10OO tons q general cargo for
discharge here. The vessel has more than
200,000 tons of refined sugar for delivery
to the Hawaiian islands.
Making a quick turn around, the Union
Steamship company's liner Marama, Cap
tain B. M. Aldwell, sailed from here today
for south seas and Australian ports. The
vessel arrived here last Thursday. '
The Robert Dollar company announced
today that the ex -German barks they
purchased and brought north from Mexico,
where they were interned during the war,
will not participate in the movement of
grain from the Pacific coast to Europe.
Reports were that a move was under way
to place the sailing vessels in commission
for this trade. Ail of the barks brought
here by the Robert Dollar company have
been changed to American registry.
Thirty-seven steam schooners have been
sent to sea with non-union crews since the
shipowners' association decided to operate
under the American plan and opened an
employment office here. All the crews have
been engaged through this office, which,
it was announced by the owners' aasoci ac
tion, will be permanent.

WHEAT CLOSE IS FIRM
REPORT OF HOOVER PROVES
FACTOR IX MARKET.
Premiums for Fancy Spring Grades
Are Shot to Pieces Daring
CHICAGO. July 25. Wheat prices
bulged at the last today because of re
nnrtu that wheat bought by Belgium in
Australia was being received out of con
dition. The market closed firm. to IVic
net hrgher, with September $1.23 Vi to
$1.23 and December $1.26 14 to $1.26V.
Corn gained to c, oats lost c
to 5sc, and provisions finished unchanged
to 15c lower.
Late strength of wheat was emphasized
by gossip that exporters could not obtain
their requirements in the market here. Re
newed attention was thus drawn to a state
ment from Secretary Hoover putting stress
on a forecast that united States surplus
grain would be in demand for Europe. Un
til after midday, however, the market
had rulf d heavy owing to continued big
receipts here and to a likelihood that the
total primary receipts this week might ex
ceed any previous record. Besides, hedg
ing pressure was much in evidence during
the morning and premiums for fancy
spring grades were shot to pieces, tum
bling 25c in some cases compared with
Saturday. On the other hand, a decided
falling off in hedging sales took place in
the last hour, shorts covered freely and
commission house demand was said to be
of a good class.
Export salts of 500,000 bushels rallleo
corn from the bearish effect of rains, bu
hedging sains kept oats weak.
Lower quotations on hogs acted as a
weight on provisions.
The Chicago grain letter received yes
terday by the Overbeck & Cooke company
of Portland follows:
Chicago. III.. July 25. Wheat started
easier. Prices- averaged 1 cent lower most
of the day on selling induced by a run of
over 3100 cars for the four western and
In the final hour sharp upturns followed
advices of large wheat export business at
the seaboard and a smaller increase in the,
visible supply than was expected. (
Homes with eastern and northwestern
connections were on the buying side. Ex
cellent demand was reported at on t side
markets and cash houses were good buy
ers on the dips.
Country offerings to arrive were mod
erate,' with primary receipts of 5.471.000
bushels, as compared, with 1,780.000 a year
Cash prices were off with the futures,
with Ihe basis on redtand hard unchanged
to a trifle easier.
Liquidation has been he.vy for some
time and the short interest has increased
as the market declined.
This, in our opinion, leaves the market
