Disapproved at .Meeting by
Tlie Chamber of Commerce by a unanl-
mous vote yesterday ut a special meeting
fund much ryi the basis of a mortgage
loan guarantee In real estate operations
but applied to private ship operating con
..rns met with u divided onlnlon. It
wa referred hack to the committee for
conslderatlon by vote of the entire chain
ber, with the exception of the members
of the committee, after a motion to lay
the matter on the table had brought a tie
vote of !is to 9$.
Mr. Hush, for tho committee's con
structive suggestion, and Welding Hlng
agalnst II were the leaders of a debate
on the Moor of the chamber. As for the
Administration ship purchaso bill, there
wis not a good word.
"Kngland alone has 1,233 ships engaged
In foreign trade," said Mi. Push. "Doi
it seem worth while for a nation of the
standing of tho United States to attempt
to establish a merchant marine with a
lleet of from thirty to sixty ships all
the expenditure contemplated would pro
vide'.' It Is not big enough to do any
MIi)st.,tlal good, but It Is Just large
,moUB, to discourage private capital and
prlvuto courage from coming to tho us-
"'""it" seems to" niUthat the suggestion Is
not worthy of this great country or
worthy of the Administration at Wash
ington, which has done in tne past wine
big things in a big way.
Welding King opposed the plan outlined
by the committee for a guarantee fund
through which ta build up an Amorican
merchant marine. Ho said that the anal
ogy Is'tween such a fund and a real
estate mortgage guarantee company, as
drawn hy the committee, uppeured very
far fetched, due lo the unstablo nature of
the shipping business and the uncertainty
Mr. King found fault with the report
of the committee on the ground that It
had minimized the disadvantage in cost
of oneriitloii under which American ship
ping labors as compared with foreign
shipping, the committee holding that the
Increased cost to Americans was not more
than between r. and lu per cent.
He cited the caso of Capt. Itobert
Dollar of Kan trnnelsco, who found the
cost of transferring a single ship from
foreign lo American registry was IS.X20
n year for extra labor required under
the American laws, Including a water
tender. In addition, he said, the larger
merely a subsidy In another guise, say.

U. S. DECLINES TO
INSURE THE DACIA
War Wish Hurcau's Decision Sits-
pected as Move to Prevent
Wasiiinqton, Jan. 14. It was disclosed
to-day that the sudden turmoil ocr the
Dacla und the request or tne stale we
purtmcnt that Great llrltaln penult the
vw..l io iltichurso her cargo at Hotter-
dam Instea I of Hremen were duo to the
refusal of the Government war rju nu-
re.iu to Insure the D.icla anil her cargo.
This refusal completely upset the pluns
of tho owners of the cotton alsmt to be
shipped. Having obtained consent or the
Department or commerce io tne aunussiioi
of tho Dacii to American leglstry they
had taken It for granted that consistent
action would be obtained from the Gov
ernment war risk bureau nnd that Insur
ance would be written as desired.
The Insuiunco was refused on the
ground that as the Ilrltlsh Government
had Indicated objections to the Dacla en
gaging In trade with Germany, her arrest
on the high seaB was virtually n certainty
nnd she wns not therefore a good rlsK.
Members of Congress who heard to-day
of tho refusal of the war risk bureau to
Insure, tho Dacla M cargo expressed great
Interest. It was said to be the first
case In which tho bureau has refused
to give Insurance to an American essel.
Many believed firmly that the Administra
tion was uelng the war risk bureau in nn
effort to prevent the sailing of tho Dacla
und the raising of a delicate Issue with
The owners of the cotton to be shipped
on tho Dacla had, however, entered Into
a contract for the staple's delivery In
Hremen on the assumption that Insurance
would certainly follow the granting of the
American Hag to the Dacla.
The American shippers of cotton, there
fore, stand to lose he.avlty through the
refusal of the Government's war risk
bureau hence the efforts now Isdng made
through tho Htato Department to get
a pledge from Great llrltaln that th
Dacla be permitted to make voyage
to llotterdam, a neutral port, Instead of
Hremen without Interference.
Tho beller here Is that the Government
Intends to use If possible the war risk
bureau to pretvmt the recurrence of
this dellcato question If England con
sents: to allow tho Dacla to make this
particular voyage to llotterdam without
It Is upparent, of course, that refusal
by the Government war risk bureau to
grunt Insurance would prevent the sail
ing of the Dael.i to a German port.
It has become known also that the
Stale Department In the negotiations with
Great llrltaln regarding tho Dacla is
seeking to secure her exemption from
urrest for this particular voyage only

"If sho sails she must li slopped and

The Dol; .Veil's says:
"As we have not declared a blockade

band tho central question Is whether we
ought to recognize the transfer nf the
Darin to a neutral Hag. Apart from the
question of law there Is the question ot
expediency. It Is obvious that if the
