was ready to make such experiment
and that something must be done to
build up an American merchant ma
rine. His utterances on this subject,
were received with great acclaim.
In announcing his position with re
gard to a ship gubsidy. President Taft
declared that with the $6,000,000 to S.
000.000 earned by the government of
foreign mail service each year, satis
factory system of subsidy, should be
inaugurated. As to the argument that
a ship subsidy would be an appropria
tion of public money to private com
panies, the president said that a sub
sidy was in principle and effect much
the same as a protective tariff system,
much the same as government 'assist
ance in the development and improve
ment of rivers and harbors, and the
reclamation of arid land through gov
ernment Irrigation projects.
If a war should eame at this time
President Taft declared, the United
States would have enough vessels to
carry coal to iu fleets. And it would
be doubtful, under the neutrality
laws, he added, if the United States

in the emergency.
