that cast unBkillful ballots, our repre

now deprive the American citizen of
the liberty enjoyed by the peo

deprivation is that we stand behind
all the leading nations of Europe In
respect to the very thing where we
were bead and front of fall. . 1 he laws
passed in 1799, ; passed when
such a thing as an ocean steam

old foeeils of antiquity still re

beeottt d clinging to the worn oat and

provides that every Amtrican sailing
vessel or steamer, trading with foreign
port", shall be allowed 30 cents per
ton for each thousand miles sailed or
steamed, for a period of twenty years,
The cause of the decadence of oar
hipping is antiquated usage and high
tariff, which prevent our people from
building ships as cheap as other na
tions do, and even forbids them to boy
tw n
cheapest, S3 that tbey can compete
ith other natiooa. If they do so the
purcha ed veenels cannot eail under

convention no- mraend that the h'gh
tariff be reduced? No, that wou'd be

They recommend more taxa'lon to
pay bounties to thorn for running
their ships. Let the reader notice

tbe avowed theory that tbe ad'
