TIIE SUXDAY OREGON! AN, PORTLAND, JUNE 20, 1915.
NEW YORK, June 12. (Special.)
Within the past few weeks grold coin
to the amount of J32.500.000 has been
moved from Ottawa to New York and
deposited in the sub-treasury for the
account of J. P. Morgan & Co. This is
only a tmall installment on Great
Britain's war debt, whose purchases of
ammunition and other supplies in the
United States already mounts into hun
dreds of millions.
It is estimated that American manu
facturers have contracted for some
thing: like 25,000,000 shrapnel shells, at
a total cost of about $400,000,000. A
portion of this enormous amount of
shrapnel has boen delivered, and or
ders are now pending: for $.100,000,000
worth of shells, both snrapnel and high
Order Total $1,000,000,000. .
Authorities in a position to have
first-hand information say that the
requirements of the allies have resulted
in orders being: placed with American
manufacturers for not less than $1,000,
000.000. This covers shells, rifles, car
tridges, army clothing:, armored auto
mobiles, automobile trucks, etc.
American manufacturers have shown
a. totally unsuspected capacity to pro
duce articles for which their plants
were never built. and another few
months will find the United States able
to manufacture more war material than
any other country in the world.
Some of the larger orders known to
have been placed in the United States
by the allied powers are as follows:
Bethlehem Steel Corporation, $150,000.
000: Westing-house Electric & Manu
facturing Company, $60,000,000: Ameri
can Locomotive Company, $34,000,000;
E. I. Du Pont do Nemours Powder Corn
pan v. $100,000,000; Westinghous Air
Brake Company. $18,000,000; New York
Air Brake Company, $17,000,000; Stude
baker Corporation, $17,000,000: Ameri
can & British Manufacturing Company,
$17,000,000. The General Electric Com
pany has practically completed negotia
tions for a contract of $100,000,000. in
addition to an initial order of $10,000,
000. Contracts for the tter amount,
ranging down to a few thousand dol
lars, have been awarded to manufac
turers throughout the country.
Others Share Business.
Other concerns known to have shared
In this business to a liberal extent are
ihe Aetna Explosive Company, E. W.
Bliss Company, Colt Patent Fire Arms
Companay, Electric Boat Company,
.Arms Coniaany, Winchester Arms Com
pany, Union Metallic Cartridge -Company,
Allis-Chalmers Company, Ameri
can Car & Foundry Company, Ameri
can Can Company. American Locomo
tive Company. Baldwin Locomotive
Company. Crucible Steel Company of
America and the Pressed Steel Car
Upward of $300,000,000 worth of mu
nitions have been purchased in Canada
by the three larger allied powers.
The Canadian Car & Foundry Com
pany has undertaken to deliver shrap
nel of a value of $33,000,000 to Russia.
In the early stages of the war the
demand for shrapnel was unlimited.
But as a result of the experience
gained at Neuve Chapelle and else
where on the fighting line, -high ex
plosive shells are now at a premium.
Three and four-inch shells of the high
explosive variety are now being manu
factured in large numbers. Many other
plants have begun to-change their ma
chinery to manufacture projectiles.
Bcniol to Be Produced.
The most important material enter
ing into high explosive shells is benzol
and its derivatives. Previous to the Eu
ropean conflict, Germany produced the
major part of crude benzol, in com
mon with almost every chemical ingred
ient used in the production of ammuni
tion. I.ack of benzol was the most ser
ious difficulty which Great Britain
faced when it became apparent that
shrapnel was not to be successfully
matched against the explosive shells
of the Germans. Prodigious efforts have
been made to remedy this condition.
The Lackawana Steel Company was
one of the first private agents to ap
preciate the part which benzol was to
play in the world war. Immediately
Ktpps were taken to enlarge its already
extensive plant for the production of
crude benzol, which is made from coal
smoke. As a result the company will
soon have the largest benzol manufac
tory in existence.
Announcement was made a day or
two ago of the approaching completion
of three large plants in the Pittsburg
district, for the manufacture of chem
icals to be used in explosive shells.
Almost every day brings forth the
announcement of manufacturing estab
lishments completed or projected for
the production of war materials. The
E. I. D'jPont de Nemurs Powder Com
pany will .put into operation in the
next few days a new plant at Carney's
Point, N. J., where 2000 men are to be
employed in the manufacture of
powder. The works of the Interna
tional Praeposit Company at Metuchen.
N. J., has just been, taken over by
Lewis Nixon, well known shipbuilder
and manufacturer. The plant consists
of 11 one-story buildings of corru
gated iron, which will serve as the
nucleus of a larger establishment. The
mechanical equipment is being altered
to manufacture high explosives.
Cotton Plants Purchased
Another transaction in which the Du
Pont Company figured recently, was
the purchase of the Ettrick and Mat
oara cotton mills at City Point, Va.,
where gun cotton will be manufactured.
Numerous companies which have not
3et entered the field are being incor
porated and organized. A typical in
stance is that of the Miller Centrifugal
Motor Company, incorporated at Albany,
N. V.. last week, for the purpose of
"manufacturing submarines and air
Many manuufacturers of ammunition
are shipping their product to Canada,
where it is loaded on steamers for
Europe. Almost every vessel leaving
ISew lork and Boston carries quantities
of supplies. The Union. Metallic Cart
ridge Company is supplying 3.500.000
cartridges a week to the allies, and this
will soon be increased to 7.000.000. -The
American Steel Sc. Wire Company
has delivered an enormous quantity of
Darbea wire to tne allies. Many other
manufacturers are similarly engaged.
An order for 2,500.000 rifles was se
cured from the Russian government by
the Westlnghouse Electric & Manufac
turing Co., at $26.50 each. Both the
Ttemington and Winchester companies
cave similarly neavy orders.

Greek Dancer AVlio 'Will Appear on
lawns Says She Can't Make Mo
tions, but Body Responds
Xaturally to Notes.
NEWPORT. R. I.. June 19. (Special.)
Helen C. Moller. of the Gainsborough
Studios, the Greek dancer, has given
several private recitals at her studio
and will dance this Summer at New
port on the lawns of the- beautiful
estates of the elite.
Miss Moller arranged and produced
with her dancers "Orpheus," which was
shown, at the Brookside open-air Greek
Theater, at Mount Kisco, N. Y., May 31.
As a child. Miss Moller, unrestricted
by the laws of society, danced and
played bare-footed with her dogs on
the prairie. She was free, natural.
simple and beautiful in that which
now has caused complete harmony.
Miss Moller says she can't make mo
tions, she can't do things: they just
happen. Not acting, or seeming to be,
but being the thing itself, is her secret,
she says. She glistens to music; un
consciously It hits the center or ab
dominal brain and flows through the
body in natural movements, she as
serts. This sympathetic center is the
seat of all emotions.
Miss Moller feels the Grecian spirit;
she does not imitate the Greeks, but
simply goes back to the principles that
made them a free nation, the freest
that ever was, she explains.
Her work, says Miss Moller, requires
the smallest amount of intellect, but
one must have the rarest imagination.
She teaches little children to listen
to music to arouse the emotions within
them. This has a purpose, for uncon
sciously they respond to rhythm, says
NEW HALIBUT BANK FOUND
Government to Survey Grounds. Due
West of Mouth of Columbia.
ORKGONl AN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ngton. June 19. The bureau of fish
eries has been advised of the dis
covery of halibut grounds lying from
27 to 35 miles due west of Northhead
at the mouth of the Columbia River.
These grounds were not investigated by
the Government steamer last Summer,
but arrangements will be made to
have the steamer Albatross survey the
bank this season and determine its
exact limits and fishery possibilities.
Advices received by the fisheries
bureau are that these grounds, whose
area and exact situation are unknown,
probably constitute a veritable bank
lying immediately between, the two
areas surveyed by Albatross last year.
