OUR MERCHANT MARINE.-
Uach year the report of tho Hit
reau of Navigation Is lep'elo with
facts that should convince Amcil
cans that further legislation Is nec
essary to assist tho American mer
chant mailne. The leport this year
Is exceptional only Uuough Its in
crease of facts to support tho argu
ment for more American ships.
Dirlng the past liscal J car tho
merchant vessels built and docu

bered 1,247 of but 238,000 gross
tons, which Is tho smallest product
since lS'.lS. Our shipbuilding Is
confined to tho needs of domestic
transportation and to naval or gov
ernment construction. Over one
third of the tonnage of the United
States Is employed on tlio Great
Tho shipping registered for for
eign trade on June .10, 190!l, consist
ed of 1,033 vessels of 8S7.G05 gross

our resources In International com
petition, as many vessels are Includ
ed In the lls( "at - havo outlived
their usefulness and others nro en
gaged in trades from .which foreign
bhlps arc excluded. It Is stated that
for effectlvo competition In foreign
trado any one of several of the great
Ilrltleh and German steamship com
r "les Is better equipped than tho
fcililio steam fleet In that trado un
der tho American Hag.
Continuing tho report says:
"With good reason wo are build

has liccn generous In Its appropria

ment for an adequato merchant ma

appeal with equal force to men of all
parties. At tlio present time foreign
governments nro spending annually
auout 145,000,000 upon certain
types of merchant steamships. Tho
form of expenditure varies, of
course, and tho objects differ. In
somo Instances tho prime object is
'to promote regular .transportation
facilities; in others to provide re

while tho creation of n bod' of naval

of shipbuilding and regular and
swift carrying of ocean mall are
reasons for other appropriations.
Whatever the purpose, the result in

NEW PROCESS. FOR
Territorial rubber planters - will
soon be nhlo to extract tlio latex
from three-year-old rubber trees, as
a Ceylon planter has Just Invented

or splrol incisions Into tho bark, ho
employs u pointed instrument whiili
pricks tho treo without doing It
much harm.. Tho now system pro
duces a larger quantity of lutox,
and haj the udvuntngo that it can bo

A Colombo firm has undertaken
tho handling of this invention, and
has offered to teach Its uso to plant

Apparently' It Is too early. as yet
to pass any definite Judgment on tho
now process. Tho advantages claim
ed for H are simplicity, economy of

that It cuuses less harm to tho trees
and Insures qulckor nnd larger pro
