THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 19 M
Congress Propose sNot to Allow "the
RaHronds to Control Canal.
With a bill before Congress pro
posing to prohibit nny railroad-controlled
steamship line from operat
ing through the Panama canal, and
the announcement of the Pacific
Mail Steamship Company, part of
the stock of which is owned by the
Southern Pacific, that it intends to
build four monster passenger liners
for operation thrbiigh the canal, a
situation has arisen which is inter
esting shipping men here and
throughout the country.
The bill in question has the pro
nounced backing of President Taft.
It has been introduced by Senator
Bristow, and is similar to the Flint
bill which was introduced at the
last session. It prohibits railroad
ownership or control of steamship
lines operating on routes which arc
competitive with the railroads, and
provides that it shall bo unlawful
for the railroad lines "to own, lease,
operate, control, or have any inter
est whatsoever, by stock ownership
or otherwise, eithor directly or in
directly, through any holding com
pany, qj in any other manner, in
any common carrier by water with
which said railroad does or may
compete for trafllc."
Just what the Pacific Mail Com
pany would do about its plans to
build four liners for the canal if this
bill is enacted is a subject that is
provoking much discussion.
In shipping circles it is consider
ed rather remarkable that the Paci
fic Mail should have announced an
intention of building four magnifi
cent liners on the eve of tho discus
sion of this bill in Cmigress. One
opinion that is expressed is that tho
purpose is to urge as an argument
against the bill the statement that
it is aimed at the destruction of tho
American merchant marine, as it
would prohibit the construction and
operation of the liners in question.
It is also suggested by those who
are anxious to keep the canal free
from railroad influence that in the
event of the defeat of this bill it
might actually bo tbe intention of
the Pacific Mail to build the liners
on such magnificent lines that com
petition would be preo'uded, and
after the monopoly was well estab
lished to raise the rate so that it
would not be seriously competitive
with the transcontinental passenger
rates. In this case theso ships would
come under the classification of
"commerce destroyers,'1 to use the
language of one of the reports of
tins trallic bureau.
Another theory which is advanced
in the gossip on this subject, is that
if tbe bill should be enacted tho
' Pacific Mail might attempt to change
thcownership of tho stock now held
by the Southern Pacific. Tho care
ful wording of the bill, however.
might make it dillicult to preserve
any railroad control in whatever
form it should be attempted.
Magistrate John U. Wharton,
president of tho Dover, Delaware
Board of Trade, had a unique ex
perience some time ago when trying
to get into n meeting at which Pre
sident Taft was scheduled to speak.
A bunch of pretty girls caught sight
of him, and, as he is of the same
height and weight of Taft, and not
unlike him in features, they sur
rounded him and insisted on kiss
ing him, thinking they were salut
ing the Chief Executive. Judge
Wharton has made a clean breast
of it to President Taft.
