Stay ton, a: former, naval. officer, who came hers under the auspices o£ the Navy League. , - - . . - Y - . . . . As showing the-heed for greatly In-; creasing .the output .of ships. Captain Stajton gave : what- he said were official .figures to show, that the total tonnage of the world had been . decreased' from 60,000,000 tons at the beginning of the .war to 40,060,000 tons at-the beginning of 1917. and that at the present time the total is tiot more than 32,000,000. -Under, the'leadership o£. Charles. M, Schwab, who..was recently named d!» rector general of shipbuilding. Cap- 1 tain Stayton expressed the. belief that the United States will be able to ac- cbdiplish what was deemed before to be impossible--the "construction of 10,000,000 to 12,000,000.tons.a year and thus offset the work.of the submarine.

Although no mention of a curb mar-, has been: made recently, the matter has not dropped out oC-sight. The curb market has only been laid aside during the Liberty Loan campaign. . The subject will be brought up t again after May 4, however: . · ' *'' ' A.circular letter has been sent to the fanners in the surrounding districts asking them not to abandon their plans for -bringing their goods to Connellsrille's curb market, as the plans will be furthered soon. That this city win haye an open.' market is certain. It is. likely, that soon after the close of the Liberty Loan campaign the committee will hold a meeting and get the matter into full swing again.

There are no large warships of the Onited States in European waters. Captain Stayton 'said, because the supply of colliers is not sufficient.-As against 2,307 'of these vessels necessary the country has 24,.-he said. Somewhat ol a- shock was created by th'e captain's picture of the possibilities of the Russian war fleet now in tie possession of the Germans getting Info tho Atlantic and playing havoc with the. transport of troops aW supplies from the United States to France. This he said would probably be overcome in a few months but not before a lot of lives had been lost There Is no way to prevent It, In his .opinion. Captain Stayton's figures d^il not' ring true when he talked o£ the tonnage necessary to transport and maintain the United States, army In France. Ho . declared' that 9,000,000 tons are needed for every million soldiers. According to Secretary Baker, he said, the United States -now has only 2,700,000 tons for this purpose. He did not explain how with about a. fourth of the required tonnage the United States has put over a halt million men across. the sneaker took a rap at organized labor, asserting that men in shipyards are not showing the right spirit in the amount oC work performed daily. ' 1 dosing his address Captain Stayton appealed to the public to write to the Shipping Board and to members .of Congress approving the government ship building program. the address, the high school girls' chorus of about 100 voices sang several patriotic numbers, following which Miss Mary McConnejl "Liberty Bell," the final chorus being a 1 parody, "Liberty Loan."
