C.  shipyards for the construction of the  first 'demountable ships ever' built.  These demountable ships will be built  up    practically    solid of.   timber, and  sion timbers, as big as can be cut in  any  mill in  British  Columbia,  would  be all the better in the construction of  a demountable ship.    Another advantage  which   these   demountable   ships  possess  is  that they can  be partially  built, as far as the lower hull portions  are concerned, then launched.   A don-  j key engine is then placed on the temporary  "deck"   or  upper  row  of  tirn-  i ber, and    used to pull    more timber  I aboard   which   in   turn, is   bolted   into  equipped with schooner rig for sailing  when wind is available, and also with  motive .power,  either steam  or inter-  ■ place and the ship gradually built up  'until a freeboard of about ten feet is  assured.

While  doubt  still  is  expressed   with  regard  to   the  ultimate  solution  of  price  problems,   belief  is  becoming    more general  in    building  circles that costs will remain at present    levels  with a    tendency    to go  higher.   This is unmistakably the situation  with   regard   to- labor  which   is  by far the most important element.  "From the standpoint of sound business it is more prudent to build -new  than to await the uncertainties, probably higher costs and more restricted  | labor   market   of   the   future.

Mineral oilsr—During the war consumption of oils outran production  with a drawing upon stocks . already  accumulated. The demand for gasoline seems insatiable. Price of oils  are at a remunerative figure and the  only apparent question is as to whether possible discoveries of new fields  will enable the supply to keep pace  with the steadily increasing demand.  Lead—At the end of 191.S stocks of  lead showed an increase of three times  over the same per,iod of 1917. Consequently, there was a curtailmnt in output and by .the middle of February,  1919, the effect began to be apparent  in advanced prices. It has also resulted in a better demand.  Branch  St. XV.
