WAsnmoTOW, Aug. 11. The radical
effect of tho anti-railroad provision in
the Pa nam bill will be more far reach
ins against the Southern Pacific's ship
ping interests than was at first realized.
This proposed legislation will not only
liar the Southern Itocltlcra boats from
tho I'anama Canal but eventually will
wlpo them oft tho l'aclllo. Ocean. This
statement may sound extravagant, but
it Is tho view expressed by K. W.
Kchwerin, vicu-presldent and general
manager of tho 1'acillc Mall i Steamship
It was learned to-day that Mr.
Hchwerln, in protesting recently against
; the proposed legislation, declared tho
situation confronting the Pacific Mall
Steamship Company forced It to under
take the establishment of a foreign
i lino from New Tork to tho Orient
through tho Panama Canal.
"If wo consider the outlook," said Mr.
i Schwerln, "I bellve the transpacific
line solely Is going to bo unprofitable,
nnd wo cannot earn our operating ex
penses, let alone any return on the in
, vestment. It would then bo unprollt
i nble for us to sell out for what we
j cm get. I don't want to nee that, I
' believe the new lino from New Tork
i to the Orient will bo profitable. I want
to sec tho American Merchant Marino
I built up and I desire to help. I do not
I see why" this money which I havo
raised Is not Just as good ns anybody
else's money for this purpow
1 If the Southern Pacific's transpacific
. Meamshlps it.ro driven out of business
ns the result", ot being shut out from
I tho canal it will leave tho Pacific ship
tvplqg to tho Kir East in the hands of
,rv Canadian mciflo and the Japa-
nesNs boats, tiKether with the non-rail-1
roadVwned vessels which ma oventu-
nlly bo put intto service between New
York nnd tho v Orient by way of the
i Panama Canat. President Schwerln
doesn't believe, however, that private
i capital will bo .Srawn out in sufficient
nmount to establish a lino from New
York to tho Vni Bast that will be able
in compete with, 'tho big-combination of
capital behind tho well known foreign
The Taclflo Wall Company, which Is
'controlled by theSouthern Pacific I'all
road, already has 'irccelvcd bids for four
new vessels to crtst U2.000.000, to be
, put In operation on this run to Asia
from New York. Trtelr plans also con
' templated the use of thelr present four
largo vessels, the Mongolia, Manchuria,
Corea and Siberia, on thla route. These
four vessels would represemt an lnveat
ment of $10,000,000. The Pacific Mall
Company bBa been waltlruS only for tho
action of Congress to tadco the final
pteps toward tho opening .of this lino
wjth its 122,000,000 wortn or equip
Hut tho passage by the Senate of the
Tnnama Canal bill has changed all this
nnd the efforts to establish this route
nre now palsied.
It was learned to-day that Mr.
Schwerln, In explaining to members of
the Senate the plans of tho Pacific Mall
Company, threw out an Intimation of a
i much broader development in the fu
' ture. ,
"I should like to see the Southern
Pacific Interests," said he, "Interested In
n line between Now York and tho east
coast of South America under tho
'American flag. We need such a line;
' wo need It badly. I should like, to see
. them run a lino of steamers between
'Now York nnd Kurope for tho -Integrity
' nnd credit of this nation. I bcllovo Uiero
i nro operators In this country that can
' moko theso lines equal to any other
' nation of tho world. Tho only question
is howtc got thuxnpltal.
' "I doubt." udded Mr. Schwerln. "If
there nro enough American ships owned
now or building that would handle at a
maximum nioro than a million nnd a
quarter tons through tho canal. It has
leen said that there are between 3,000,-
, noo and 4.000,000 tons of freight tribu
tary to water carriage through the
canal that Is, avallablo for movement,
either by rail or tidewater. Suppose
that under theso conditions the canal is
, opened for traffic and a great wave of
enthusiasm sweeps over tho Unl'.od
i States for the hbo of the canal, and
. shippers, merchants and manufacturers
route by water regardless of tlielr
knnwledite ns to the nmount of tonnago
, nvnllnbln to movo the freight. Supposo
, It develops that this freight cannot bo
moved for lack of Amerlcnn ships.
' Theso manufacturers, merchants and
Hhlppers will not bo particularly con
rerned who curries their freight so
long as the company Is Tollable, nnd
when they find that this situation Is
due to a lack of American ships It seems
to mo Unit the demand for thla par
ticular trado will compel the Govern
ment to permit forelisn ships to eu
pago In tho coast to coast trado through
the canal for a tymited period of yearH
with tho expectation that American
shipping interests will provldo Ameri
can tonnage within that period."
Mr. Schwerln. was emphatic in his
rdatemcnt that the country would, have
to depend upon the railroads to estab
lish and rovivo American shipping.
"Tho great steamship Interests of the
world aro combining." be continued.
"You havo the International Mercan
tile Marino Company, composed of a
largo tleot of vessels; the Royal Mail
fcteam IJacket Company purchased tho
llnlon Costlo line tho other day for
iibout $26,000,000, and with this acqui
sition thp Royal Mnjl controls n the
largest steamship (loot ot the world,
consisting ot somo 295 vessels asgre

line aro combining; so are the French
lines and the Austrian tine.
"It Is to tho Interest of tholr shipping
that theso foreign steuiuahip companies

President Mellen of the New York, New

as indicating what tho effect would bo

tho Now Haven lines to divorcu their

provision prohibiting all railroads from
controlling competing steamship lines.
Tho Senntu amendment has limited this
prohibition to Uio Panama Canal and
fins empowered tho Interstate Commerce
Commission to decide whether the di
vorcement Bhall bo enforced in tho case
of other railroads. President Mellen
said that in tho event of any such prohi

"My own Judzment is that thorn will
bo mi immense increasa in commtitian

section) of the I'anama bill as the
greatest incentive to a combination or a

President Mellen gavo it as his opinion
that with American railroad owned ships
barred, from the canal tho Canadian Pacific

In voting for no tolls jfor American

Is essentially open to discussion."

He's the New National Treas

See Plenty of Cash.
EX-MA YOK OP ST. LOUIS
Going to Headquarters To-day,
and Anticipates Large Popu
A small, smooth shaven, middle aged
man with prominent ears and with a
coat of tan that save evidence ot much
outdoor life recently, camo Into the
Waldorf carrying a suit case early
yesterday afternoon and registered as
"Holla Wells, St. iouls, Mo."
There was no reception committee
on hand to greet him, but the Ink
wasn't dry on the registry page before
a group ot young men who unsuccess
fully had been looking for political
news on a dull Sunday advanced' upon
the little man with a "Welcome to our
city" look on their faces and straight
way buttonholed the new treasurer of
the Democratic National Committee.
Tho smooth shaven little man who Is
to bo tho watch dog of the Wilson cam
paign money from now on was naked
for vital statistic. Whereupon it was
learned nt first hand that he la a
banker and ex-Mayor of St. iouis, Is
56 years old, was graduated at Prince
ton in 187$, or threo years before Gov.
minim wii Kruouaieu, mai ne nas
two sons who are Princeton men, and
a grandson who some day will be a
Princeton man, that he had no i.otlon
of seeing New York this summer until
tho Wilson organization selected him
ns their treasurer, nnd that Juot at
present the one thing that sticks out
In the appointment in his mind Is that
the new Job cut in seriously upon a
most beautiful vacation which he and
Mrs. Wells had been enjoying in a
camp at Little Traverse Day, Michigan
It was the absence of Mr. Wt'ls in
the Michigan wilds that Held up a good
part of the Wilson campaign work tor
several days whllo the Wilson men
tried to locate their appointee to the
national treasureshlp. For a largo sec
tion of three .whole days Tom Pence
had been on the eastern end ot long
distance wires trying; te get in touch
with the new treasurer to tell him of
Mr. Wells brought his vacation to an
end regretfully and immediately started
for New York. He reached here at
1:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon and
will bo here most ot the time from now
until the battle Is over.
"As for a pleasant trip," said Mr.
Wells in reply to the usual formal
greetings, "it was the happiest trip I've
ever mode to New York. The train
had hardly got under way when the
conductor told me that although he had
voted the Republican ticket all his life
this year ho is going to vote for Wll
son. That remark brightened up the
"Tho news of your appointment was
somewhat of a surprise, wasn't it?"
some one suggested.
"Surprise?" repeated' the national
treasurer. "It was a positive shock.
I never had so much as a word with
anybody about the appointment until
tho telegram came to mo announcing
that I had been selected."
Mr Wells says he doesn't know how
he happened to bo chosen tor the Job,
or who suggested him. Ho knows
Gov. Wilson only slightly, ho said. It
Is generally understood, however, that
when tho Wilson campaign managers
wero casting about for a national treas
urer they early doclded to select soma
ono as far removed as possible from
tho "monoy devils of Manhattan," and
furthermoro that an appointee from
Champ Clark's State of Missouri also
would bo desirable. Kdward F. Goltra,
national committeeman from Missouri,
is credited with having successfully
urged Mr. Wells's appointment.
"I can't say anything- very definite
about plans for raising campaign funds
or kindred rnattcrs Just now," said Mr.
Wells to the reporters, "because I have
had no conferences with the Wilson
men here and do not expect to sqo any
of them until to-morrow. My intention
is to meet Mr. McCombs, Chairman
Morganthau of the finance committee,
and Vice-chairman Crans In conjer
onco at tho Democratic national head
quarters some time to-morrow and get
to work at outlining our department
of tho campaign work.
"I haven't yet settled upon any par
ticular schomo for raising compalgn
funds. Thero Is nothing for the Demo
cratic national party to worry about,
however, on tho score of contributions.
Tho plans for getting the fund togothor
are nf course matters for conference,
but right now I feel Hure that tho peo
ple bellevn so confidently In the Demo
cratic nominee that ample money will

publishing broadcast both before and
after election tho various eontrlbutlons
Mr. Wells expects of course to see
Gov. Wilson before long. So far. how

Uonse With Bands.
Ska Girt, N. J., Aug. 12. That the
strength of the Roosevelt third terra
movement Is not altogether satisfactory
to the men who are managing the cam
paign of Gov. Wilson was Indicated this
afternoon by the words of Senator
Thomas P. Gore, who "came to Sea Girt
to have a talk with the nominee.
Senator Gore saw Gov. Wilson, but
there is no authority to state that he
expressed, any forebodings over the sit
uation to his host. Ho declared he had
mentioned matters generally. After he
had come out of the Little White House
the Senator from Oklahoma said some
thing about over-confidence and under
estimating the strength of the oppo
sition. To the question of how the general
situation In the Democratic campaign
appeared to htm he answered:
"The situation Is entirely saUsfsctory,
I might say gratifying. Everything is
going along very well."
"How about the Ilooscvclt strength?"
"Well," he answered, "you know it la
never safe to feel safe. I won't talk
about that side -of it, but I can say we
ure not going to take anything for
That brought up the speech of Fred
erick W. Hlnrlchs of Brooklyn xcater
day. Senator Gore did not show any
signs of believing the Brooklyn man
had made It too strong.
"I figure the two errors we must
avoid this campaign," he said, "are to
overestimate our own strength and to
underestimate the strength ot the op
position." He stopped as It he were
checking himself from expressing some
one thought, but added: "You know I
am Inclined to overestimate the strength
of tho opposition."
"What will Roosevelt do in Okla
homa?" "Oh, I don't think he will do any
damage. You see, there Is soma doubt
about our laws and what a third party
can do. I don't know what ths final
battle array will be," and the Senator
tapped with his cane on th. walk very
much with the nlr of a man who thinks
he knows that It will be all right.
Tho Senator said he did not know
anything about finances In the cam
paign, because as It was not in his
department he had not given an
thought to It. All he would do would
bo to make up his own budget fur the
organization department. The Senator
laughed out loud when asked whether
ho had heard that Mr. Bryan would not
go out on the trail of Col. Roosevelt
"Bryan Is doing splendid team work,'
he said, "splendid team work."
