FOR REITER CONTROL
Loadon, Dec. 21.-The latest and
fourth plan of the government for
the better control of tho British mer
cantile marine, while still unrepeated
is practically a dead' lettr. > :
Beginning wiU.i> a swooping plan,
for the requisition of the entire mer
cantile marine, the government ran
through various plans ot leaser con
trol until lt reached aa agreemont
whereby two committees of shipown
ers were appointed to provide for j
the requisitioning and licensing o':
British ships. The first committee
was expected to meet the complaints
of owners woo claimed to be suffering
great hardship because tho admiralty
In requisitioning ships always seized
Vessels, which had English :. home
ports, while ships which traded be
tween foreign ports escaped govern
ment service. Tile second .commit
tee was instructed tb cooperate with i
tho first by .institutingf a system
whereby all British ships engaged ia
trade between foreign ports m UH t
have a license to continue in' such
Neutral traders looked upon tho ad

committee with great alarm, but
nothing has occurred to justify their
