AS TO COASTWISE TRADE.
\ riew concerning Panama Canal
tolla which It has been Intimated the
British note of protest will be fouiyjl

fcnglish presa Thai Is that no objec
ti?.ii mlfht be made to the exemption
? i American coastwise commerce from
tolls proYlded that the exemption
coqM be strictly confined to such traf?
fic and uns not made to cover the gen
era] foreign trade of the United States.
'J'buf- "The Morning Post," of Condon,
?peaking of the proposed exemption oi
";ill .*>.ii;i't'i,?.?m ressels engaged in the
? oaatw lae trade," Bays:
II i\ be aaJi h a concea
i would not affect th< shipping of
other countrtes, sine? ths coasting
trade of the ?United States is alr?;uiy
erved by law to the American mer
? tile marina But it is easy t?. give
?'?r.- wMa definition to the term
?"ti'ic trada" At present a steam

lh American ports, pasaea through
tht* strait of Magellan and up ths
stem shores of ti,?- c< ntlnent, end?
lim up at Pan Francisco, is held t?? be
??nKaiioiJ In ?coasting trade.
Without entirely accepting our Lon?
don contemporary's somewhat free and
easy <U??-iTi)>ii.>ri of American coasting
trade, we can here ai least recognize
the British conception ol whal thai
trrnl?' sbonld legitimately l?o If it is to
j exemption from eai
namely, traffic in goods of American
origin and American destination from
one American poi I
ample, s cargo ?t tomber from Puget
s- und for Philadelphia, or a cargo of
machinery from New York fur San
Francisco, would be coastwise com?
merce, which could not be carried In
other than American nautili and In
which there could be no competition bj
any other country. But h cargo <>f
lumber from British Columbia bronghl
to Pugel Bound -in?i thence reshipped
in Kew York, or a cargo of coal from
ht Nova Scotia brought to Neu York
n.'ii'i thence shipped to Ban Fran
V < toco, would not be true coastwise
comm?re?' because it would not be ex?
cluslvelj domestic and would be In
competition with the commerce of Can?
ada, since it could lawfully be carried
from the port of origin to that of dee
tination in Canadian as well as Ameri?
can vessels. Similarly, a cargo of
American products shipped from New
York to San Pranciaco, ami Intended
thence to he forwarded to V'ancouTei
..r to Japan, or one of Californien
goods from San Francisco n? New York
for forwarding to Europa, would not
lie domestic and would n??f be entitled
to exemption as coastwise trade.
There would also be cases ip which
cargoes would be mixed, part being do
nestle in origin and destination and
part forelen In either origin e?r elestl
natl'-n. It would cause some work and
trouble to discriminate among theae
various tinsse?, to exe*rnpt some and to
exact tolls on others, but It could prob?
ably lie done.
If this country should adopt the pol?
icy of exempting Its coastwise trade
from tolls While making its foreign
commerce pay tolls the same as that
of other lands It would execute that
policy in good faith an?! would not Mek
to smuggle foreign trade through un?
der tbe guise of domestic. But It may
not permanently assent to the proposi?
tion that goods of American origin, in
tended for A merle an consumption, on
being shipped in American renaela
from one American port to another, by
way Of an American canal, are by
right anil Of necessity subject to the
same tolls that are paid upon the for?
eign commerce <?f (his and other na
lli.ii?.. And it may be doubted if any
other governme-nt would undertake se
riouslv to maintain that proposition.
MORE SUBWAY KICKERS.
The objections of some William
street property owners to tbe building
of the new subway under that street
have a familiar sounei. A few years
ago the realty owners of lower Broad?
way were equal!.*? certain that the n??w
existing line would tumble all the sky?
scrapers ltiti? the street v?*t Him sub?
way was built and the skyscraper.
True, William street is narrow. But
so are most of the downtown streets,
and If that is a bar to construction tbe
hope of ever relieving the erush Is
vain. If tbey are to be built at all.
the tracks must get from the City Mall
to Brooklyn through narrow way?., and

"mu uiu. that ?air coastwise ships are

is not true No foreign ship can carry a
