Vancouver  The Cunard Steamship Company has  announced the opening of a branch  office at Antwerp,- Belgium, in line  with its policy of expansion since the  war has been concluded.   i  FOREIGN  TRADE  British debts this year will aggregate $7,500,000,000. More than $!2,500,-  000,000 is expected by loan from America.: About $5,000,000,000 is an outside  figure for revenues from taxation in  corning financial year.  London despatch says about 20,000  .British firms with $20,000,000,000 capital will form federation to take advantage of new Department of Overseas  Trade. Latter plans to reform consular service and spent $6,250,0000 annually. Commercial attaches will be  established.  which, if successful, may practically  revolutionize the lumber industry  where the handling of large quantities  are required. Some thousands of the  standards of timber required will be  made up into and carried on a demountable ship, of which the timber  will form both the structure and the  cargo. This practically means that the  timber is to be built up into a sailing  vessel, preferably of the schooner rig,  and the ship as well as her cargo  taken to pieces again when England  is reached. Plans for this kind of a  shipment had been prepared during  the war to obviate the submarine menace and provide an unsinkable ship,  and although no longer required to  circumnavigate the submarine, they  are to be given a practical trial in  connection with at least one big timber shipment.
