But lir the plans- of Great Britain's : Ministry of' Recoustmctioa thes rwo ''periods Jargely. overlaix~lfls "the'vftal" aim- of that body-to m"ak«: the period of transition as brief as possible. The idea of British.Leadi-rs Is.that if tbe empire is to endure.there »nch refltdDgr of'men and indostries to ' rae«r changed circumstances and 'such redirection of effort as will'Insure the utmost development of othrr resources. Upon the £nrplo3 'of these resources In gootis and services which she can dis-* J»t to other countries.depends .'Great .Qtifata'g ability ,?jtr -fiet out;_of debt and to resume her cbcdmerdal'aiid financial leadership. Throughout. ; th« tJBpIre the" Idea~is;'balng .fostered that the future rests upon·'fncretstbg.. production and reduciDg.coosomptlbn. ·ONE-OF , SHIP , YARDS WHEE£ GREAT BRITAIN IS PREPARING 'FOR AFTER-WU* SEA TRADE ._ f preparatory to this,'development, Great Britain is iri£lng what Is prbba- hij- tbe; most remarkable inventory ever .attempted.' Under the direction of.-the Ministry o f ; .Reconstruction, the Ministry, of Munitions, ;pepaument of the Foreign Oflice.and Board.of Trade and other goyernraentol agencies near- ly'n hundred committees are collecting Information throughout ; the empire. These Inquiries touch the life of chef British people In all Its phnsetk. . j ,, For example,, Che; Prime Xlnlster's Connnttte£r;on Commercial untl Indus- 1 LONDON Or I'Ht GUARANTY TRUST CCX OF NEW YORK trial Policy.'Is considering whni Industries 'are.usisentinl. to ibe future safety j anrt foretcn trade lost daring the war iiiiii to secure nev: mtirkers; to what of the nation and whin steps should he j extent «ml Uy whni means the t- taken, tr^rm.inraln uri'i esirilillsh them :. sonrcei* of the em pin- should nnd can what mp.nas the sources of supply ^rtth- in the era pi re cno be proven red from {ftlliDp nntler fnreipn control, Annther important committee is the % what' sboulit be doac-ui recover homp be dev«Uijn.'iJ; to %vt«ii exveut and by i Dominions Roy a) Commission, which THE BANK OF "ENGLAND, GREAT BRITAIN'S FINANCIAL is inqnlrfng Into the natural resource* and trade possibilities-ot tbe five self- governJng dominions. Then there Is tbe Financial Facilities Commltteee, charged with ascertaining whether the normal arrangements lor financing trade will be. adequate for poet-war needs, and, if not, how they should be supplemented. This Commlsslan w also 'consider tno problem of financing the conversion of muni tlons piemtii Into factories for normal peace pri ditctlon. Another Important body under the Ministry of Reconstruction li tbe Central Coratnitteo o{ Matortola Supply, Is eon»fd«rlng the nature nnfl rtnonnt of supplies of material reiu!r»!f! ly the various pnrts of tho empire during the period of read- as well as the. requirements of other oaUous during. that period, Of especial interest to Americans is tbe Indian Cotton Committee, which Is studying the cotton 'market with a to the development of. long staple cottons in India. In the direction of developing new Industries the. Engineering. Trades Committee is compiling a list of tbe articles suitable for manufacture, by those with 'engineering trade experience, which were cither not made : in tbe United Kingdom before the war, but were imported, .or were mode in small or ^'sufficient quantities and for which there Is-likely to be a considerable demand after the war. All the problems connected with promoting .these new indus.trJes will be taken up by this committee.. Another important field Is the development of mineral resorces. Tbe Imperial Mineral Kesonrces Bureau Com. nrittee is preparing a scheme for establishing, an ' information bureau In London to study mineral resources and reqruJrements and. euggest plans for development along this line,. The Department of Scientific : and 'Industrial Ke- aearcii has moro.than a score of com- .mittees devoted to^the-investigation of upeciflc matters such as metallurgy, glass and optical Instruments. Illumination,' abrasives, vitreous compounds, tin, tang* ten, lubricants, zinc and cop- p«r. Along this llne'.filso the Board of Trodt has had nt vrork *!nee 1P10 com- mitteoa on tbb Cool Trades, Iron and Staai Trades, Englneerlns Trades, BlBCtrlcnl Trartes, Non-I"errous Metal TrticiL^. Shipping and Shtpbelitilng *»· duscrles and Textile Trades. The reports of, these Utter committees nave already teen submitted aad constitute a formidable array of accurate and detailed !nf»rniftdon a» to tbe situadop confrondcg rarknv ID- cVustrles. In addition to these Inquiries, by committees sanctioned by the fforer»- ment, many other Investigations are being made upon the initiative of individual manufacturers or merchants. With all these arrangements for Increasing the volume and improving the character of the things that' can OB produced ta the British empire bave gone plans for building up a great selling agency. The .government has created a new joint Department of tb* Foreign Office and tbe Board of Trade, which Is known as the Department of Overseas Trade, Development and Intelligence. This body controls the Board of Trade's Trade Commissioner! Service witbln the empire and tbe For-' eign Office's Commercial Attache Service In foreign countries. The Trade Commissioner Service and the Consular Service are to be strengthened and enlarged. Better trained men are to be sent nil over the world to wmtcb for chances to sell- British goods. The Department of Overseas Trade Is to undertake the bringing pf buyer and seller together more quickly and cheaply than ever before. The British Government Is also giving close attention to "tbe possibilities of electrical .power. It has a scheme for dividing tbe United Kingdom into districts Jn which super-power plants would be erected for supplying motor power and heat on the theory that less cool would thus be consumed and less labor needed. Naturally the most attention Is glv- en to tbe restoration of the merchant navy. Great Britain is arranging for the Improvement of her harbora throughout the world and has already mapped ont new transportation, routes and in connection with them Is posh- ing railroad, and canal development. In general, the British reconstruc- tlonists adhere to the. principle of amalgamation, as it is believed tbat only by methods of quantity production at lower cost, tbe division of fields both in production and distribution. and concentration of certain phases of ; tbe work in accordance with demonstrated skill can a single Industry hope to compete with German concerns. They hold that competition after the war will be between natlona ratber than between Individual^ Tbe British banks arp aware of the great demands that will be made upon them to finance this colossal program. They are concentrating on reserves of capital upon which to build an adequate credit structure. Tbese amalgamations are significant of tbe growlngj feeling tbat to win ttieir way, or even; to survive, the peoples ot the Brltlshl empire must draw closer together so-' dally, politically and economically.. As the war has welded them into a coordinating, interdependent fighting machine, so apparently is th* prospect; of wonderful opportunities combined with nn appreciation of tiie necessities of the case urging them to unity of purposo and breadth of understanding Ju Ihelr preparations for peace.
