Bogies Haunt Sleep of English
Manufacturers and Ship
pers; How Far Will
the Yanks Go?
By ROBERT WELLS RITCHIE.
(Universal Service Staff Correspondent.)
- London, May 4. America - and
Japan: these are the bogies that
haunt the sleep of the British manu
facturer and, shipper these . days.
How far will the Yankees of the
U. S. A. and the Yankees of the Far
East get the lead on tne traders of
these tight little islands before the
latter gets off from the tape?
The subject was made the topic
for a long discussion in Parliament,
during the course of whichmany
optimistic statements were made
which are not borne out by facts
at least by the facts as Britain's
captains of industry see them. At
the same hour that certain members
of Parliament were saying that
everything was all right with British
trade and it was "going full steam
ahead," Sir Leo Chiozza Money, in
an interview with the press, was
comparing the output per worker of
mills in the United States and those
in Great Britain very much to the
disadvantage of the British worker
and a commercial mission repre
senting the Lancaster cotton spin
ners was preparing to go to Japan
to discover how far the Nippon man
ufacturer had stolen away British,
cotton print trade in the Orient, and
Japan's Big Stride.
Here's the situation confronting
British producers reduced to nut
shell dimensions: Japan has prac
tically corralled the whole Far
Eastern market, from Vladivostok
to Bengal, , in the cotton print line
particularly and incidentally in the
machinery and machine tool export.
America to name orily the most
menacing feature has carried off
tremendous contracts for structural
steel rails and manufacturing ma
chinery, not only in devastated Bel
gium and France, but right here in
Britain itself, where Yankee agents
were able to underbid home com
petitors. "A Cleveland firm recently
secured the contract for building the
reinforced concrete foundation for
the first skyscraper structure in Lon
don a tower for one of the largest
department stores, which is to rise
nearly as high as the Singer tower
in New York.
Yankee competition all the way
from coal to cotoanuts is equally as
Seek Inside Information.
One of the humorous' angles of
the present situation, so far as the
Lancashire spinners are concerned,
is that right at this minute a dili
gent little delegation of little brown
spinners from Japan - is going
through the Lancashire cotton mills
with notebooks in hand, courteously
asking questions'. In other words,
discovering just how crippled the
Lancashire mills areat present.
Writing in the Manchester Guard
ian, a manufacturers' expert says:
"The war, as is well known, came
near to crippling Lancashire's ex
port trade. In August last year,
when the idea of the Mission was
conceived, the position, roughly, was
that only one-third of the produc
tive capacitv was available for the
home and export trade, and a large
part of the eastern markets had to
be sacrificed. Prices were ruling so
high that an easy opportunity was
given to Lancashire's chief rival in
the East Japan. The development
of the Japanese trade in cotton
goods throughout the East during
the war has been great enough to
Undersold in China.
Japanese have been able to under
sell Lanchashire. goods in the
Chinese and other markets, and they
have .been carrying out a highly ef
fective system of commercial pene
tration. A certain amount is known"!
about the Japanese methods, but
there is scope for inquiry, which ap
pears to be developing along highly
scientific lines, with the help of
state subsidies of shipping and so
forth. The mission will visit Japan
and will make detailed investigations
into the whole of the industry, and
should be able to present a report
on its return which would be of val
ue to Lanchashire." .
Sir Leo Chizzo Money, who by
virtue of his high standing in the
London financial world was ap
pointed a member of the commission
of inquiry on the miners' demands,
emphasizes the curious fact that at
the recent sittings of the commis
sion the truth was learned that the
ministry of labor did not know
American miners' wages had been
raised three times since 1916. Using
this to point a moral, Sir Leo says:
Compares American Wage.
"I have just received from Ameri
ca, the official record of earnings in
New York state (including New
York City), which has about 1,500,-
000 factory workers.
"The average weekly earnings,
not sof the men alone, but of the
men, women, boys and girls, em
ployed in these factories were in De
cember, 1918, 4 16s. 7d . ($24.14)

ers women's trades, including the
lowest paid industries, such as laun

which males are chiefly employed,
such as pig-iron and rolling mill
products, we find that the average
weekly wage in the month of De
cember, 1918, was 7 18s. 2d.
"What are the average earnings
of our own people at this time? I
do not precisely know, because we
do not take the . trouble here that
they do in America ' to ascertain
facts. We prefer to be vague, un
informed, and fearful. When, the
war broke out the average earnings
of our men and boys were about
1 7s. 6d. ($6.87) per week, and of
our women and girls about lis 6d.
($2.78) per week. At the present
time the corresponding figures do
not exceed 2 10s. per week, and
22s. per week respectively. If we
take for New York state textiles,
clothing, millinery, and laundering,
in which women and girls are chiefly
employed we find that the average
earnings in December, 1918. were as
high ,as 3 10s. 2d. ($17.54) per

question of "jobs for soldiers." This
was done at the request of the

Some of the pastors preached ser

up the problem in short addresses.
A number of sermons were preached
on "The Returning Soldier and the
Church," and the problem of giving
ex-soldiers positions without delay
was discussed. .
Some churches appointed commit"
