THE ECONOMIC SIDE
The policy of granting the use or
the Panama canal free of charge to
American vessels engaged in coast
wise traffic involves an economic as
well as a moral question. The editor
of this paper has endeavored to show
In a previous article that the grant
ing of free tolls to such vessels is a
violation of the spirit of the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty, which can not be
honorably justified. The plan is also
unfair and unwise from an economic
It will take a certain amount of
money each year to pay for the up
keep and protection of the canal .md
to meet the interest and provide for
the retirement of the bonds sold to
raise the money for its construction.
If American vessels engaged in coast
wise traffic are given the free iUG
of the canal, it follows that the tolls
imposed on other vessels will have
to be increased. The chief products
from tho Pacific Northwest which
will pass through the canal are grain
and lumber consigned to foreign
ports and carried in foreign ships.
The increased tolls charged these
ships, because of the exemption of
tolls to American ships, will be a
direct tax upon the farmers and lum
bermen of this section, levied for the
benefit of the owners of the vessels
engaged in coastwise traffic.
If it is a wise economic policy to
discriminate in favor of vessels en
gaged in coastwise traffic, the result
could easily bo accomplished with
out any violation of treaty rights, by
collecting the regular tolls on such
vessels when they enter the canal
and returning the money to them
when they leave it. But this would
involve the granting of a direct sub
sidy, which the ship owners are
afraid to ask. The free use of the
canal would be a subsidy just the
same, but it would bo indirect, and
the mass of unthinking voters would
not recognize it by its real name.
American ship builders are now
given a monopoly by the law which
prohibits the sailing of a foreign
built vessel under the American flag.
American ship owners are given a
monopoly by the law which prohibits
foreign vessels from engaging in
coastwise traffic. But they are not
satisfied with this absolute protec
tion against competition, and no.v
demand an indirect subsidy through
tho free use of the canal, which was
built for the benefit of the com
merce of the world. The most dis
gusting feature of their demand is
that they are trying to bolster it up
by frantic appeals to patriotism.
Transportation rates by water, as
well as by rail, are fixed on the basis
of "All the traffic will bear," and it
is safe to assume that most, if not
all, of the savings resulting from
the free use of the canal would be
absorbed by the ship owners and that
very little of it would find its way
into the pockets of the shippers or
Rather than to force the products
of the farms and forests of the
Northwest to pay increased tolls for
the use of the canal, in order that
the coastwise shipping monopoly
may enjoy free tolls, it would be
better to collect regular tolls from
these ships and then levy a sufficient
tax on all the people to return the
amount of such tolls as ■ direct Bub
sidy for engaging In the coastwise
traffic. By so doing the government
would at least be absolved from any
possible suspicion of not living up to
its treaty obligations, and the tax
would be equally distributed instead
of being placed entirely on those
products passing through the canal
in foreign bottoms.
ALL CAN HELP
The department of music at the
W, S. C. has arranged a program for
the Eighth .May Music Festival which
will bring nearly 200 people to Pull
man to participate in the exercises.
This visit will give them an oppor
tunity to inspect tin' college and the
city. Many of them come from high
schools and are prospective college
students. That they will bo favor

foregone conclusion and it rests with
the people to give them an equally
favorable impression of the city.

visitors at his home will make a spe

The residents of a town or city
should take a similar interest in pre
paring to receive visitors. They
should take pride in making the
town clean and attractive and in giv
ing the strangers a hearty welcome.
While the college will provide quart
ers and look after the entertainment
of the guests who are to participate
in the May Music Festival, the citi
zens can help by seeing that there
are plenty of automobiles and con
veyances at the depot to meet the
special train and take the visitors to
the places where they are to be en
tertained. Make them feel that they
are welcome the moment they step
off the train and that every man,
woman and child in the city is inter
ested in the work of the college and
in the success of the Music Festival.
By so doing all can assist in getting
the most out of the opportunity to
