Tut: Democrats in the lower house
of congress" put themselves on record,
last Saturday, by passing the Mills
bill, which provides for a reduction of
taxation on the necessaries of life. A
republican Senate is now brought face
to face with tho question, and they
must either vote for the interests
of the people or tho interests of the
monopolies. The Mills bill is for a
reduction of taritl' in tho Interest of the
consumers. Tho monopolist and pro
tected manufacturers all oppose it, be
cause it will cut down their immense
profit. Kvery friend of the masses
favors it, for it would give us cheaper
clothing and cheaper sugar. That is

Wasiiinothn, July LI. - Tho In riff
bill was laid aside in the House to-day
iu order to give tho post-otlire commit
tee a chance to present the conference
rep rt on the regular post-nlbcc appro
priation bill. As the Itepublirans gavi
notice the ether day that they would
insist on hating three hour to debate
tho ocean mail subsidy amendment,
tacked on by the Senate, the Democrats
agreed to thu proposition, as they were
anxious to have tho matter fully dls
c issed in order to how tho country the
attitude of the men who are proposing
to throw away a largo sum of monny
under the the guise of aiding snl
building up American shipping inter
ests. It is a subsidy puro and simple,
and a big Iieo would tind Its way Into
the pockets of the Pacilic mail crowd.
Year after year tho Republicans try to
grant this subsidy, but their sehemra
have been balked since the Democrats
havo had possession of the House. In
last Congress tho subsidy advocate
ained many votes In the House, as ft
mU-r of thu Democrats representing
Hstricts along the const voted for the
Senate amendment, but their strength
as more than offset by the votes of
llupublioaus from the West and North
west. Tho mauagers of tho bill say
that tho House will hold out against
is proposition until the Senate la
com pelted to abandon the thing. A
vote was not reached this afternoon. It
111 le taken to-morrow morning early
Some strong speeches were made by
tho Democrats to-day; and among tho
eakers was Mr. Dockery of Missouri,
he universal sentiment was that hla
ffort was one of the ablest and most
oquent arguments that has ever been
lelivoroil against subsidy legislation.
Uo greatly agitated the Republicans.

lauded by the Democrats.

Mr. Dockery traced the histoty of the
subsidy legislation since thi organiza
tion ot the government, and showed!
that In every instance It had not been
f any substantial benetlt to tho Ame
rican merchant marine. The policy
was tried before the war and wu aban-
loned as a result of experience. It was
revived iu 1906 and continued for ten
years, when as a result of the Pacltio
Mall scandal it waft discontinued, the
government having expended in that
time $h,ooo,Ooo. During the subsidy
period from 1400 to 1877 there waa ft
ecrease of 6 per cent, in the carrying
trade, an absolute decrease in the ton
nago of tho vessels constructed la thle

the records, that if $XK,000 subsidy

000 as a gratuity to existing lines in
stead of euoouraging the establishment
of new linos of ocean steamers. The
result would be to discourage such new
enterprises by giving the present lines
a muuupoly of the carrying trade.

Hu showed conclusively that the mer
chant marine ot this country had de-
uliued because llrst, the cost ol an
murlcau ship was from $100,000 to
3150,000 In excess of a foreign ship;
second, that the daily operating ex
penses of an American ship were

pauses of a foreigu ship; aud third, for
jigu govurumuuts grauted enormous
subsidies to their steamship lines. For
.hese reasons he stated that subsidies

less lu on amount sufficient to com pen
iatu tho American ship-owner for the
ncreiisud cost of his vessel, for Its tn
creased operating expenses, and also
for the subsidy rucoived by the compet
