land at-tho snma time Join the solid
I South In denying protection to ocean
shipbuilding nnd navigation. Anoth
er factor Is tho growth of the navy
and Its demand for an adequate re
scrvo of auxiliary cruisers, transports
nml supply ships. Tho grotcsquo
spectacle of sixteen American armor
clads o;no)cd around tho world
nnd coaled from ono port-to another
by a nondescript crowd ot foreign
"trumps" has brought lis lesson oven
to tho farmers of the, Mississippi Val

tho creation of nn adequate Ameri
can merchant marine Is the widening
Interest In overseas trado nnd tho
need of foreign markets for the sur
plus products of many American In
dustries grown stiong under fifty
)cars ot protection.
Thcso factors aio reflected In tho
attitude of Congress. A few months
ago nn Importnnt ocean mall bill, for
tho encouragement of American ship
lines to South' America nml across tho
Pacific Ocean, passed the National
Senate without n division without
a Blnglo negative vote. Two or threo
years ago such a result ns this would
have been deemed Impossible. Tho
lenders of the Nntlunal House wished
to postpone action on this bill until
the short or coming Bosslon ot Con
gress, after tho Presidential elec
tion. Uut they finally consented tn
have It offered as an amendment to
the postofllcc appropriation bill. In
splto of antl-clcctlon nervousness nnd
tho "subsidy" bugaboo, still exploit
ed by foreign .steamship agents In the
Mlddlo West, this ocean mall bill
failed ot acceptance in the postofflcc
appropriation by only n narrow vote
of HG to 1G3 lacking but eight of
In tho preceding Congress nn ocean
mall bill, narrower than this, was
oppo'ed by 22 per cent, of the He
publlcans of the House. This year
only IB per cent, of tho House Ile-
puhllcunu were tecorded ngalnst It.

is no less oitspokcn. In bis address

urges tho iMissnRQ of tho pending
ocean mall bill as n "tentative" step
In the rlgbt direction. This meas

acquiring only tho approval of tho
House, will undoubtedly bo taken up
