CAPTURING GERMAN TRADE
One of the large drug-making firms in Great Britain advise their constituents in New Zealand : ,: There is little doubt that the, German trade centres are from nowbeing transferred to England. ... In fa.ee "of the fact, that Great Britain has all the trade routes of the world, open, we. strongly advise you to send forward your oversea" indents'as usual. Freights and insurances, as well as war risks, a.re extremely low, and we have reason to believe that they will continue so to be.'' The "circular proceeds : " THE POSITION." Deal' Sir, —Owing to this country unfortunately being engaged in a great war to maintain ,; right against might," there has necessarily been a certain amount of disorganisation to business of all kinds; but thanks to the strength of the British Fleet the seas have been kupt open for shipping, and v.-e have every reason to believe "that they will continue to be so.

In order to make sure that there shall be a sufficient supply of modifies and appliances for the sick and wounded, the Government have very properly piohibitcd. as ;i purely temporary measure, ■certain of such goods being exported : but. all early the prohibition has been taKt'ii oif lime-juice and some other things, and we krve little doubt that by the time this letter reaches you practically all prohibition will be removed.
Freights were much raised at first, but these 100 have already been reduced, and the. rate? of war risk insurance has already come down to 2 guineas per cent, to most ports. (We are. insuring all shipment,-; against war risks unless otherwise instructed.) Under these circumstances our friends may have -confidence in ordering for shipment as hitherto, leaving ifc to i;.=, if they will, to look after their interests in lessening quantities, if any special article should be in an excessively abnormal condition. Borne large staples, suck us borax, have so far not been affected in pike at all; but others, such as tartaric and citric acids and cream of tartar, the raw material for which comes item the Continent, have advanced very Merman-made chemicals, fik-'U as, the .--;i!ici!;ites. acid acetilsalicyl, bromides, ctf.. have- for the moment advanced heavily, but steps have already been taken to make such products at Home, so that we mar look forward to a ili 1 i dul on n th i pin howt\ i 1 i tic \ it m \ lis
