Pauncefoto Will Stay.
London, March C, 5:07 p. ru.. It Is
learned that tho British Government
hns decided that Lord Pauncefoto will
remain ns Embassador at Washington
Indefinitely. Tho decision to retain
Lord Pauncefoto ns British Embassa
dor to the" United States Is chiefly duo
to tho unanimous declarations of tho
Brltlav press In favor of such n step,
nnd although Lord Salisbury previous
to last Friday had not considered tho
further prolonging of Lord Pnunce
foto's term, ho apparently became so
much Impressed with tho strength of
tho nrguments regarding tho Embas
sador's ncuto knowledge of tho matters
pending between tho two nations that
ho asked him it he wcro willing to re
main. Lord Pauncefoto replied In tho
No deflnlto period was mentioned by
Lord Salisbury, so It Is probablo that
tho dean of tho diplomatic corps will
not lcavo Washington this year, nt any
rate, nt tho end of which tlmo tho
Urltlsli Government hopes for n set
tlement or tho various controversies.

Washington, Mnrch 1. Tho report
prepared by Senator Fryo upon tho
shipping bill reported by tho Commit
tee on Comnicrco of tho Senate wns
made public today. The report begins
by nsscrtlng "tho self-evident vnliio of
a national merchant marine," explains
nnd deplores our almost entire depen
dence upon foreign shipping for our
ocean carrying, suggests tho danger of
reliance 'ipon the merchant ships of
other nations, which may become In
volved in war, tho possible complete
exclusion or American exports rrom
their rcgul.ir foreign markets In such n
contingency ami points out that the
wholcsaio tii.tiBfcr of tho tunnngo of
a belligerent nation to n neutral flag
would unqui-ttnnnbly Involve such
shipping In iHinculttes, seizures nnd
detentions. The llrltlsh-Boer war has
materially rcduicd our means of trans
portation and embarrassed our ocean
mall Bcrvlcc. The humiliation of our
rcllanco upon foreign vessels bought
nnd chartered, during our war with
Spain Is refencd to. Three prime rea
sons nro given for tho decllno of tho
American slipping lu tho foreign trade,
namely: The greater cost of build
ing Rhlps In tho United States than
clscwhcroj tho greater cost of oper
ntlng American ships, compared with
foreign ships; causes based on foreign
Tho suggestion that this situation
may bo overomo by tho free admis
sion of rorelgn-bullt ships to Amcrl
can register is met by pointing out that
If such ndmistlon wcro unconditional
It would rcsi.lt In destroying tho
existing American shipyards on tho
Atlantic nnd Pacific coasts..
All competent authorities, tho report
ststes, agrco tint this bill, If enacted,
will Involve n largo lncrcaso In tho
American mciehant marine. Tho
passage of this bill, It Is claimed,
would probably effect n reduction of
$25,000,000 a jcar in ocean rates on
American commerce, through tho ad
ditional shipping and tho competition
that would bo created..
"Foreign opposition," tho report
says, "Is being concentrated upon tho
bill, becauso foreign shipping Inter
ests clearly sco that they will bo se
riously injured by tho replacing of
American for tlio foreign vessels now
in our foreign trade.
"Tho maximum annual expenditures
nro fixed at $9,000,000 In tho bill.
About $l,r00,C00 Is now being paid to
American chips under normal condi
tions ror carrying our malls, n Bum
which should bo deducted from tho nd
dltlonnl expense of tho operations of
this bill. About 400,000 additional tons
of new shipping, approximately $10,
000,000, nnd occupying several years in
Its construction, would liavo to bo
built in tho United States If this bill
Is passed, beforo tho maximum expen
diture of $9,000,000 could bo reached.
"It Is expected that 340,000 tons of
forclgn-hullt vessels now owned or
building for American citizens will be
admitted to American register under
tho terms of this bill, their owners
being required to build equal tonnage
in tho United States before receiving
"Tlio provisions of tho bill from
every point of view," ndds tho report,
"nro overwhelmingly In favor of now
and moro vessels, moro shipyards nnd
greater facilities for ocean transpor
tation. Whllo deemed unnecessary, n
provision has been Inserted under
which a vessel cannot recelvo full com
pensation unless sho cnrrlcs one-half
of n cargo. This completely answers
criticism to tho elTcct that n vessel
might run tinder tho bill for tho com
pensation given without carrying a
"As tho most promising field for tho
future development of our markets for
agricultural products In northern and
temperate Asln, tlio commlttco believes
that our grain fields and cotton plan
tations will gain In greater proportion
from tho enactment of tho law than
tho seaboard shipbuilding nnd ship
Computations tiro given showing tho
exact amount vessels of various rates
of speed would get under tho bill ns
compared wltn tlio cost of operating ,
..v 4x ii'iii-uiii"iiiui uiiiji, wax

get, over nnd above tho cost of coal
and tho handling of It, n net compensa
tion under tho bill of $22,932, whllo n
ten-knot ship, making 42,000
knots per annum ,or less than half
tho dlstanco of tho fast shin, would re
ceive n net compensation over tho cost
nnd tho handling or coal of $15,120 per
annum. Tho fast steamships received
tho lowest net compensation under tho
bill, A computation Is given ns to tho
amount tank vessels, such as ova used
by tho Standard Oil Company, would
recelvo In compensation If admitted to
Amorlcan register under tho bill.
These vessels carrying oil can only
take an outward cargo, and ns they are
foreign built, they would, because of
carrying cargo ono way, recolvo only
2 5per cent of tho compensation nllow
