?ROM THE NATION'S CAPITAL.
From Our (Jim Correspondent.
WASHINGTON, 1). C., March94, 1002.
Why did Mr. Roosevelt withdraw his
apposition to tho new force hill pro
tramme of tho radical Republicans ?
It is known that ho wns at first opposed
X? it, and that it would have been aban
loued had his opposition been contla
led. If tho talk of Republicans can
be believed, tho causo of his somersault
is any tiling hut creditable to him. They
jay that his consent to tho programme,
which has been given a freBh start by i u
the action of the House Committee pn | tl
Rules in reporting a resolution for the
appointment of a committee of thir
teen to investigate the election laws of
the Staten and report to the House, was I s
obtained by promising him that the re- | t
port of this committee would.be so ma
nipulated that it would be made the o
excuse for reducing the representation t
of tho Southern States in the National l
Republican Convention, thus reducing c
tho number of votes that he has reason \
to fear will be controlled by Senator j
Hanqa and will bo against his own nom
ination for tho Pre8idottcy. lt seeniB <
incredible that n man of Mr. Roose- t
volt's antecedents should allow himself \
to be influenced by BUCh a method, but ]
the charge that ho was is made by Re- i
publicans, not openly, ot* course, but j
among themselves. If the proposed
force bill programme be carried out, it
will unite tho Democratic party and 11
will surely elect a Democratic Presi
dent in 1004.
Aftor holding their ilfth caucus tho
Republicans on tho administration Bide
of tho Cuban reciprocity wrangle won
out by sheer force of numbers, the iinal
vote being 85 to 31, but if the 31 kick
ers who refused to be either bulldozed
or cajoled into supporting the admin
istration plan have tho n=rve to voto
against the party bosses when the rule
for the passage of the bill is reported
to the House, there is a lively time
ahead and a possibility that some im
portant tariff amendments may bo add
ed to the bill, providing for Cuban re
ciprocity before it passes the House, but
so strong is the party organization that
the chances are that enough of them
will be whipped into line to adopt a
gag rule that will make it impossible
to amend the bili, even if they thereby
kill themselves politically at home. It
is the strength of their party organiza
tion that has kept the Republicans in
Senator Rawlins succeeded in getting
a big batch of letters from Filipinos,
dealing with condition a in the Philip
pines, inserted in the Congressional'
Record thiB week by starting in toread
them as a part of an all-day speech.
That caused the Republicans to with
draw their objections. The letters
will be printed is a public document
for general distribution.
.It will be a long time before Repre
sentative Dick's words to the Republi
can bosses, in the caucus-"You pro
pose free trade for the farmers and
protection for the truBta"-are allowed
to be forgotten. Mr. Dick's long and
close relations with Hanna and other
Republican bosseB have been euch that
he ought to be able to speak with au
thority about what they propose.
The House made a $00,000,000 jab ot
the Treasury surplus this week by
passing the River and Harbor bill.
The HOUBO Democratic caucus, which
was largely attended, unanimously
adopted a resolution offered by Repre
sentative Randall, of Texas, declaring
sympathy for tho Boers and pledging
the Democrats in the House to do
everything in their power to forco the
committees of tho HOUBO having charge
of resolutions concerning the Hoers to
report the same, so that Congress may
have an opportunity to express the
sentiment and will of tho American
people. Tho resolution further says
that Congress should appeal to tho
British government, in the interest of
humanity, to accept overtures tor peace,
also that the United States should seo
that the neutrality laws are impartially
enforced. The Democrats intend living
np to this resolution, and either make
the Republicans report the Boer reso
lutions or accept responsibility for sup
Speaker Henderson's anxiety about
retaining his seat in Congress is in
creasing. There is a new lot of trou
ble for him in the Ship Subsidy bill,
Sassed by the Senate this week. If
[r. Henderson, in his role aa dictator
of the Committee on Rules, permits
that bill to be pushed through the
House he will antagonize Senators Al
lison and Dolliver, both of whom voted
against the job, and with tho tight he
already has on bis hands he knows
that will be a dangerous thing to do.
If he hangs the bill up he will offend
Senator Hanna, chairman of the Re
publican National Committee, who is
especially interested in seeing tho bill
become n law, and the majority of his
party in both Senate and House. Be
ing placed thus "between the devil and
the deep sea," it would not be surpris
ing if Mr. Henderson dodged this par
ticular question by ref using to allow
the Ship Subsidy bill to be acted upon
at this session of Congress, and seekB
to square Hanna and the other big
supporters of the bill by promising
that it shall be put through early in
the next session, which will not meet
until after the Congressional elec
tions. . ,
The Senate Committee on Privileges
and Elections made a bluff?t consider
ing the Joint resolution for election of
Senators by the people this week, and
agreed to hold weekly meetings until a
conclusion is reached. A conclusion
could be reached in five minutes, if the
majority of the committee wished to
do so. lt would be an adverse one,
but it would Borve as well for a record
vote in the Senate as a favorable ono.
Boss Hanna has* partially made good
his claim of being able to control the
Republican "steering" committee and
prevent the Nicaragua Canmbill being
made the "unfinished business" of the
Senate, which would make it reasona
bly certain of being voted upon at this
session. The committee has decided
that the Chinese Exclusion bill shall
follow the Oleomargarine bill, which
now has tho call, and ignored the
Nicaragua bill, which it was asked to
make "next" on the legislativo pro
gramme, but individual members of
the Committee have promised that the
canal bill shall have a chance later.
Can He Answer the Puzzle ? j pii
Editor Intelligencer : Open r mi freo
:chnngo of ideas has niado it possible
ir tho world to detect error, and ao
|pt only aa "truth" that which cannot
j successfully contradicted. There
?eras to be un idea prevailing that tho
nip Subsidy bill which has recently
med tho Senate is a "stem" and a
ioco of highway robbery. Elimina
ii? mero opinions of men who aro
ither bought to writo such articles, or
irough "ignorance' repontiug what
imo political demagogue states for
lo sake of being un the other side, let
a examine records rather than follow
tieso blind leaders.
"In early colonial times American
hipbuilders and merchants became
uch dangerous commoicinl competi
era, from the superiority of their ehips
nd tho greater efficiency of their Bnil
irs, that tho British Government, by
he Navigation Acts, beginning ;in
045, prohibited importations iuto the
olonies except in En glish or colonial
milt vessels. While tho Navigation
Vets restricted trade, they fostered
hip building. The merchant marine
.ontinned to thrive after tho R?volu-1
ion. Between 1760 and 171)7 the regis-1
ered tounngo increased 884 per cent.
ITrom 1837 to 1817 tho tonnage rose
from S10.000 to 1,3-11,000, to 3,208,000 iu
1857 and culminated with 2,400,000 ton?
"The maximum tonnage of the Uni
ted States at any one time registered
i\ud enrolled (or engaged in foreign
and domestic trude) and iu fisheries
was, in 1801, reaching ."5,0:50,813 tons, lt
thus nearly equalled the tonnage of tho
whole of the rest of the maritime world,
excepting Great Britain, whose tounge
was slightly greater. But since this
time, from various causeB, tho Ameri
can merchant murine service has de
clined until it is now wholly insignifi
cant. ThiB is due largely to tho fact
that, when iron and steam vessels be
gan to he used, the facilities for con
structing them were limited, and tho
navigation laws prohibited merchants
from taking advantage of British sa
periority in construction. Income taxes
and heavy taxes on groBS receipt, es
pecially since the Civil War, have
greatly handicapped shipowners. The
coastwise trade, too, has fallen largely
iatc the hands of foreigners."
. ? ' . . . .
The above is taken from American
history which is accepted as authentic,
trae and reliable in every respect, cov
ering a period from 1492 to 1805. Ex
amining mere recent reports furnished
hy the Commissioner of Navigation of
the United States, we find the entire
shipping for^the year 1001 to be only
4,582,045 tons against 5,680,818 tons in
1801 and onr population since has gain
ed nearly 50,000,000 souls, while the
British merchant marine has grown
from 5,710,008 tons in 1861 to 14,373,000
tons in 1900 and tho German from
nothing, so to speak, in 1870, has grown
to 3,800,000 tons, all in less than 80
Now, why is it that ouig merchant
marine has not kept pace with England,
Germany and other progressive pow
Another stubborn fact of tho decline
of our merchant mariue is tho ratio of
agricultural exports in lfiOO being 81.18
per cont, while in the year 1001 it fell
to 04.03 per cent.
Despite the enormous aggregate of
our export tindo for tho year 1001, we
nro not making tho stride wo would
make if American products were car
ried in our own vessels and under our
owu Hag. Is it to bo presumed that a
dozen or more State Legislatures would
have passed resolutions and sent mem
orials to Congress to the effect that:
"We memorialize tho Congress of
the United States to aid, by appropriate
and liberal laws, tho .effort of the
American line to maintain a placo ia
the merchant marine of the world, and
by legislative action to extend still f ur
thes encouragement to our merchants
in their efforts to recover our lost com
mercial supremacy in the'.carrying trade
of the oceans, putting an end to onr
present dependence upon ships of for
eign nations for the carriage of tho
products of our own country. That
both. National pride and National in
terests demand tho hundreds of mil
lions of dollars yearly paid by our
people of the United StateB to foreign
ships for ocean freight shall bo paid to
our own vessels built and navigated by
our own citizens and flying our own
Space will not permit quoting a hun
dred or more similar resolutions from
all parts of tho country, but since the
editor of The Daily Mail was so sure
that Senat/ . McLnurin of South Caro
lina was tho only Democrat in favor of
the Ship Subsidy, lot me repeat tho
identical words of Senator Tillman on,

Now, Mr. Editor, ono moro word and
will close for today. If the Ship
lbsidy is a otenl, as the editor of Tho
aily Mail calls it, and Senator Mc
anrin tho only Democratic accomplice
? this "highway robbery," why does
rantor Tillman pro?on.t memorials
om all other States of the Union in
