i EXPORT BOUNTY
Great Northern Railroad Presi
dent Testifies Before Merchant
Declares That Country's Great
Need Is Market for Export
New York. May 25.James J. Hill,
president of the Northern Securities
company and of the Great Northern
railway, appeared as a witness before
the merchant marine
which is investigating1
thcommission, causes of
the decline of American shipping in
order to suggest measures for rem
"The first thing necessary," said Mr.
Hill, "is to create a desire in the peo-
)le of this country to own -ships. It
purely a commercial question. If
there is a profit in it people will en
gage in it.
"Our conditions on the high seas as
a nation aeem hard to meet. On land,
In spite of high rates of labor, the
United States has been able to work
out a system without an equal.
"Why we are not able to do this on
the high seas is not clear to me, and
as far as I have investigated it I be
lieve that no amount of direct bonuses
will build it into a life worth living.
"What the country wants is a mar
ket. Outside of our agricultural
products, cotton, grain, oil^JjUkere are
very few things we can export ^Because
coat of production is so high. We can
not sell them.
Experience in Building.
"I have had experience In building
two ships, the largest freight carriers
in the world, and I don't want any
more. I would rather undertake to
build 1,000 miles of railroad than two
hips.don't think you will make much
of a success of buying a merchant
marine it won't stay with you. Be
sides, we have very few sailors even
on pleasure ships.
"A foreigner might come In ana.
take away our coast trade. But let
me tell you that on the lakes the low
est rates are paid that are paid any
where in the world.
Mr. McDermott pressed the question
of government aid.
"But is the government able to go
far enough?" asked Mr. Hill.
"If you will admit foreign built
ships free," he said, "you will get a
merchant marine quickly."
"How are wo going to get back a
merchant marine asked Mr. McDer
"If you are willing to put a tonnage
tax on all that goes to a foreign mar
ket everything that goes dut of the
country, even to new markets, I
think you would get the ships. That
would come out of the people."
"The ship subsidy agitation started
In about thirty minutes. I had in
duced the Japanese to take cotton to
mix with theirs so that it would make
a better yarn. The Boer war broke
out and we could not get ships on the
Pacific coast I had to cancel an or
der for 60,000 bales of. cotton in De
cember. I came on east and saw Sen
ator Fairbanks and Senator Hanna. I
asked why we could not get ships to
carry our goods. Senator Hanha said
he would see me in the morning, and
he did. The result was that ho opened
his campaign in Ohio on the. ship sub-
"Then your remedy," asked Mr.
McDermott, "is an export bounty?"
"Yes, that is it
"You seem to be very pessimistic
over the outlook," said Senator Gall
"That is because I have looked at It
from a purely business standpoint, I
have built those two ships simply as
a regulatorto try the experiment
"There are only two courses
open either an export bounty or gov
ernment assistance, which would rise
into very large figures."

ST. PETERSBURG'S VIEWS
Russian Officials Belittle Retfort of
St. Petersburg, May 25.The Brit
ish and American press reports of pos
sible protests against the laying of
mines in the waters of the Liao-tung
peninsula because of the danger to
international commerce, evoke much
interest here and are the subject Of
the general remark that there was no
talk of protests while the Russian
ships were being blown up, it only be
ginning after the Japanese ships met
Government circles are inclined to
think the reports of possible protests
by the powers are confined to the
press. Neither the British nor the
American embassies has received in
structions on the subject.
The indications are that if the ques
tion of laying mines beyond the
three-mile limit becomes the subject
of a formal protest, it will raise a
new question of international law
growing out of the increased range
of modern guns

in position, with two propellers at

working order on his No. 7 balloon,
Santos-Dumont had a trial of his big
airship in the grounds at Neuilly.
Santos wished to try the motor in the

The only ominous feature of the
balloon was the fact that the 1,500

three minutes the whole shed was

hose which he had condemned. The hose is of
the "Live Oak" brand, which has been the
subject of much discussion. The lot condemned
was purchased two years ago with a guaranty of

reason for refusing "to make good the rejected

since given way it was thru no cause for which

Sure and Rational Cure.
If those who suffer from temporary

of malignant and dangerous poisons

the necessity of effecting a cure.
These poisons develop very inside

whole constitution before their pres

quently they manifest themselves in
a great variety of' ways, such as erup
tions of the skin, intense headaches,
lassitude, nervousness and nervous
prostration in all of its dread forms.
Dyspepsia and indigestion, and Imper

and neglected constipation.
