Expert Reports to Taft That
American Vessels Should
Free pasago of the rannma Canal by
American coast-wise trade la crltlclsoU
In a report made by Trof. Hmory John
on to President Taft, becnuso It will
reduce the revenues of thn canal and la
Riving a subsidy to an Industry ulilcn
already has n monopoly.
It whs on the facta, Ilgurcs, and con
clusions of Prof. Johnson that Presi
dent Taft announced last Wednestla
the tolls which shall be charged for
tho uso of llic canal. Those who be
lieve that free passage of tho canal
will aid American shlpplnu aro placing
their subsidy In the wrong place, ac
cording to Prof. Johnson. In this re
port, which Is said to have tho gen
eral approval also of Bccrutary of War
h'tlnixon, the Investigator says:
"Our shipping employed In tho foreign
trade needs assistance, but our coast
wise marine has a monopoly of tho
costnlse trade und does not need furth
er aid. In 1911 there were .1,5.17,750 tons
of American shins enrolled for the do
mestic trade on thn Atluntlc-gutf and
Paclllc seaboards. Tho Increase during
tho preceding decade had been 38 per
rent. Thero Is thus a relatively large
nnd henlthv Increasing tonnugc of
cuastwlne shipping; and the opening of
the Panama canal will undoubtedly
bring about a largo addition to tho
roustnlso fleet. Our roustwlse marina
U now given sufficient nld and pro
tection by our navigation laws."
