DANGER TO PARTY
IN SUBSIDY BILL?
Republican Leaders Fear Result
of President's Indorsement
SITUATION IS FRAUGHT
WITH GRAVEST PERIL
Congressmen Hesitate to Act in
View of the Possible
By W. W. Jermane, Colorado Building,
Washington, D. C.
Washington, Nov. 27.Will the at
tempt to use the. magic Roosevelt's
name to force a ship subsi-.lv bill thru
congress send the republican party
dowr* to,.defeatf This is the question
which Secretary Root's great speech, at
Jiausas City the other day is causing re
publican party leaders to ask each
There- does not appear to be any dis
position to combat the value and merit
the purpose of drawing South America
and North America closer in their com
mercial, social and industrial relations.
So far, all who, have
ture of the secretary's
to hold to the opinion that the people
at large would countenance even an
extravagant outlay to accomplish that
which he so graphically laid before the
country. Politically, the American re-
?ublics fween excuse-
must suffer a common fate,
herefore, socially, commercially and
industrially, they should be bound to
gether. Thus far Mr. Root has the ap
parent support of every one. and in
this direction he goes no farther than,
many have gone before him.
Gives Roosevelt's O. K.
But Mr. Root, in setting up the im
iortance of developing the relations be
the two Americas, gives the ingrain
dorsement-of the Roosevelt administra
tion to the entire subsidy propaganda
as exemplified in the bill which passed
the United States senate last winter,
and that is where the rub comes. It is
that fmature of the case which makes
members of congress wonder if it will
be entirely safe for them to lend their
individual support to the project of
doing* something to draw the South
Americana to, us. That is, if the doors
of the treasury are once thrown open,
ari*d a'precedent established thereby for

will the people
it on groun that a little of
th.e money Was spent for the laudable
purpose. of .knitting the two Am'ericas
together, or will they go to the'polls
and vote the republican party.into ob
livion? Answer that question and you
immediately settle "the question as to
whether there is to be any ship sub
aidy legislation this winter.
Afraid of the Issue.
Some of. the greatest men in the party
are afraid of it. Among these is to be
ound' Uncle .Tee Caimon. 5Ef it had not
been for his opposition the senate sub
sidy, bill would haye come to a,vote in
the house.'last' winter. The president
wanted it voted on and he urged the
speaker to permit it. But Uncle Joe
is" fully as sot" in his ideas as the
president, and the bill rested inf the
house committee on merchant marine
and fisheries, where it is now. Whether
the speaker is opposed to the subsidy
rinciple has not been fully revealed,
it is.known that the failure of this
legislation for the past two congresses
is to be laid directly at his door. What
ever his opinion of subsidies, it is
known that he has been afraid of the
effect of any such legislation. The
condition of the treasury, the certainty
that one subsidy appropriation would
lead to another, and the temper of the
people on the subject, are the only rea
sons he has apparently felt called upon
to give for his attitude. And these he
has given to all who had any occasion
to talk with him about it, from the
Foreign Trade Big Now.
The one great, underlying fact on
Which rests the fear of the republicans
that they may earn the popular wrath
if they establish the subsidy princi
ple in this country is the present splen
did condition.- of the foreign trade of
the United States. From an obscure
position among the weak and puny na
tions of the world, the United States
has come forward in this respect, stride
by stride, without subsidies, without
ships of commerce flying the stars and
stripes on every sea, until today we
stand without a peer, the foremost ex
porting nation on earth.
This is the great fact which makes
the party leaders give pause. For they
know that if a subsidy is granted to
shipowners and the expenditure of the
money does not result in an immediate
and marked increase of American ex
ports, disaster awaits .the party, .which
permitted the vessel owners to reach
their long arms into the United States
treasury. And yet it may be that,
with our foreign commerce increasing
as it has, no subsidy could tend to
hasten it. For if the people are al
ready selling all their surplus, and do
ing it readily, no number of waiting
vessels would or could make them sell
Turned Down Big Order.
To illustrate: A few days ago an
opportunity was pointed out to the
American Car & Foundry company, the
so-called car trust, to sell a large num
ber of cars in China, and the reply
was that the company could not fill ail
the orders- received for cars in this
county,- and, therefore, did vnot
Omaha St. Louis
ifi reach after the Chinese trade. Hence
a-thousand subsidized ships waiting to
carry cars to China could not have
any effect upon exports. Even free
transportation to a foreign country
would' not induce an American manu
facturer to neglect his established do
mestic trade, or to send any of his
product abroad until the demands of
his domestic trade-were fully satisfied.
Again, if subsidies are the sure key
to commercial greatness in the foreign
field, how is it that Great Britain has
not so far. outstripped the rest tof the
world as to make the race hopeless for
others? She has expended for this pur
pose in the neighborhood of $300,000,-
000. Ye tKe United States hab come
uD,otrt of -the rue* without any sub
sidies at all, and has equaled and passed
her in the total value of annual ex
ports. And other nations with vary
ing amounts invested in subsidies have
also taken away some of her business
to foreign countries.' If subsidies make
for greater, exports, they must also
make, for lower freight fates. These
two are one and indivisible, as the
Standard Oil company can tell you.
The exporter who gets the lowest rates
will sell- -the goods, provided other
things are equal.
But dp subsidies make lower freight

Every mail is bringing to The
Journal evidence that the country
is full of wheat which the railroads are
neglecting to move. And coupled with
the information regarding the gorge of
come repeated expressions indi
cating a popular suspicion that the fail
ure to mov6 the crops is due to a poli
cy rather than to physical conditions.
Today it is Anamoose, N. D., which
sends in the- most significant report.
Farmers there are giving their time
and services free to unload cars of coal
and other merchandise, hauling the
stuff wherever it belongs and all this
just for the sake of getting the emp
tied car in which, to ship their gram.
Time was when the railroads running
westward from Minneapolis sent out
each fall .long trains of "empties" to
bring back the golden grain. Even so
much as one "empty" in a train now
adays is enough to canse a snort of dis
gust from some railroad officials and to
send 'some hapless freight' conductor to
the bench for hauling an unproductive
piece of equipment.
Storage Is All, Poll.
Anamoose is a village of 600 inhabit
ants some 412 miles out of Minneapolis.
A correspondent at that point writes to
All of our seven elevators and one
flat house, are practically blocked, with
some 250,000 bushels on hand, no small
part of which is now stored in six tem
porary bins hurriedly erected.- Since"
shortly.after th buying season opened,
each of our local grain buyers has been
out of the market some '.time, and even
when able to buy, their capacity has
been limited to one to three carloads
at a time. Since about Sept. 1 this'
local market has shipped about 250,000
bushels in about 250 ears. That may
sound ample, but it only means about
eighty-three cars a month, or less than
three a day allotted to eight busy grain
buyers, coming far short of the de
mand during the marketing season.
Farmers Give Their Work.
"The result is that more than one
third of our crop is still out of the mar
ket. Storms of the past two weeks
have now made the roads practically
impassable for heavy hauling, and the

During the. past. year, the .Great
Northern admittedly has issued $25,-
000,000 in new stock. Holders.of the
$125,000,000 stock which was already,
out, were, allowed to absorb this new
issue at par, Great Northern investors
being allowed one share of the new
stock for every five shares they already
held. Many simply sold their options
on the new issue. This proved worth

new company represented the holdings
of iron ore which Mr. Hill had accu

Superior company stock was given to
the Great Northern stockholders, share
for share, thus equaling a dividend of
100 per cent.
In addition, the Great Northern de
