The following Is an abstract from
a letter from Dr. ZinkJiani to his fa

that both of tbe men have been in
tbe thickest of the fight. They bad
a ten days' leave of absence during
the Christmas holidays which they
spent In Paris. ' -

fire was too great for his horse,
Captain Paul II. Zinkham. In tbe
Medical Reserve corps, France, tell
in a letter to bis lather," Louis F.
Zinkham, superintendent of Wash

cated bis brtother, lieutenant Ar

service in France. ,
! Hoth officers were working in dif
ferent units and neither knew where
th other was doing his "bit.". Cap
tain Zinkham tells how he found hi
brother. It is an follows:,
' "The past five days have - been
about as exiting as my checkered
career has ever produced, and about
as much hard work." Four days ago
a bead case came in with brother
Arthur's name to the card. 1 then
knew he was somewhere at the .front
and I cot busy -found a wounded
officer from his division, and he tolj
me where tbe artillery camp was. I
got permission-from the C. O. for the
day. I walked. At about S j. m. 4
found the division headquarters, and
about where the ambulance was.
four, and a half miles on.
"I borrowed a horse and rode un
til the shell fire was too much for
the horse. Found tbe ambulance to
find that Arthur was in the advanced
dressing station, 'one and a half miles
farther on.' I reached htm about 6
p.m. and found him in a dugout on
the bank of a Canal. The noise was
terrific; he nearly broke down when
he saw me, as he didn't know I was
within miles. He bad been shelled
out the day before and been struek
over tbe kidney, by a piece of stone,
when a shell exploded near by. , Had'
a. bad bruise, but. thank God. noth
ings worse. ;"!
'I only had . about ten - minutes
with him. He said to me in Russian
that he was scared,: I was so scare
had to laugh. I bucked him up
some be was nervous, but other
wise In good shape. : I nearly broke
my heart to leave him. I saw him
watching me as far as he could see
me. I had a rough trip back, but
made it byl daylight. 'I traveled
fourteen miles to see him and four
teen hack. They couldn't under
stand how I found him or why I
wasn't stopped. ..They didn't know
how I; wanted to see him, and then
my . American uniform helped. No
one ever questioned me. I would
have gone to the boche lines if he
had been there. r r
"I have been working very hard
ever since, as we have been driving
the boche back since that night.' My
ambulance went up today and will
be near, I expect to follow soon. I
may get another chance to see him.
Your boys are right where things
are thickest and doing their bit."
' A letter from Lieutenant Zinkham
states he has since seen ils brother.
Captain Zinkham, under more favor

with him. ' V i

Building Program Outlined.
"Our shipbuilding program con
templates the construction of 6 mil
lion tons annunally, but owing to tho
want of (be necessary skilled men.
we are not under present condition
in a position to turn out that ton
nage. "The shipping board has the mon
ey. It has the yards. , It has tbe
material. The. housiag question Is
being rapidly cleared up. All that
Iff needed Is to obtain the necessary
efficient labor.
"It should be brought home to
rmployers and to tbe employes of
the Industries of the nation that
their own future depends on the con
struction of these ships. The fact
Jr that the recent order .issued by
Fuel Administrator Garfield, closing
the factories of the whole country,
and the more recent freight embar
go Issued by Secretary. McAdoo. ty
ing up all the freight with the ex
ception of food and fuel, came not
because of a falliag down on the
part of the carriers themselves, but
because of the lack of ships, Thj
reason for this is plain. The speed
ing up of the American factories pll
d up In, the eastern seaports, and
packed Into every railway siding out
side of the seaboard cities, thous
ands cf loaded cars 'of materials for
Ihe war sone. The result was that
even the, coal required for the hp
in harbor could not get through, and
even the few ship which we now
possess wer held in harbor by emp
ty bunkers and could not sail.
Ports Mut lie (leareri.
"Until we have ships to clear the
Atlantic ports' of manufactured
goods, for which our army In France
and our allies are In need, these en
forced holidays and enfbarroe must

SAN JUAN, Porto Rico, Jan. 23.
(Correspondence of The Associat
ed Press.) Ninety-one percent of
the S134. 1C,141 trade . of Porto
Itico of the, past fiscal year was with
the United States, making a new
record both for total volume -of bus
iness enjoyed by the Island and In
percentage transacted with he main
land. - The Increase In gross volume
of business was approximately 129,'
000,000 while the Island Increased
its purchases of good es In the Unite !
States by 127.000,000 over 1910.
The Island was more prosperous
than eve,r before, according to the
annual report of Governor Arthur
Yager for the fiscal year 1917, which
has Just been made public. - Since
island's external commerce has in
creased $55. 000,00 and this growth
Judged from the report, is not due
to direct war business or war value,
although sugar la the Island's chief
product. - '---j;. -- . -
Says the governors' report:
"Not only, figures as. to trade and
industry but all the surface Indica
tions of the commercial life of the
island show unmistakably that the
prosperity haa reached a higher level
and is more general than ever be
fore. ' There has been general
though varying - Increase of wages
and there la less unemployment than

of the business situation tbta .

The Island 'sold to er purthi? i
from tho United States goods of p s
value of $122,854,473. Sugar "
ports totaled 488,943 tons, vI
at $54,016,903, a gain of 03,98$ i
