the constitution had not received a

instrument, he said, had been so con

wisdom and discretion of their acts.

gressman Marsh said of his bills for
public buildings in his district:
'These bills providing for 16
public buildings in my district are
not to be taken as a huge -joke. I am
serious in the matter. The largest
amount desired for any one building
is f i'5.000; the others are f 10.000 and
$15,000 each. The aggregate isn't
more than the appropriation for one
good-sized public building. I Ihj

The people ought to have before their
eyes something tangible to indicate
the presenco in their midst of the fed

handsome government building, will,
moreover, stimulate a home pride in
handsome buildings, and a great
number of attractive structures
would be erected by private enter

HARD FRESSEO CKEW.
How thoroughly the advocates
the subsidy outrage seem at the pres
ent time to have been routed is shown
by the fact that their mouthpiece, the
Philadelphia Inquirer, published at
the headquarters of the International
Navigation company, falls back upon
an argument so preposterous as this
"lne question of aid to the merchan
marine has been before the country,
and the country has passed upon it
favorably, it was a part of the plat
form of the republican party. Having
been indorsed by the popular vote, it
becomes the dutv or congress to adopt
the subsidy bill. The senate should
lose no time about it."
The reference to the matter in the
republican platform was in this para
graph, says the Chicago Journal:
Uur present dependence upon for
eign shipping, for nine-tenths (actual
figures 76 per cant) of our foreign
carrying trade is a great loss to the
industry of this country. '
The national defense and naval eftici
ency of this country, moreover, sup
ply a compelling reason for legislation
which will enable us to recover our
former place among the trade carry
ing tieets of the world."
The man who can find in those sen
tences any hint of a purpose to com
pel the taxpayers of the nation to pay
a tribute of 9.000,000 a year for 30
years to the International Navigation
company and two or three other rich
corporations, must have a telemicro
scopic eve. And the man who will
say that because McKinlev was re
elected the $9,000,000 a year subsidy
graft was "indorsed by the popular
vote" must have either a shredded
brain or an indurated conscience
The ship subsidy is only one of the
multitude of sins, real and concealed.
for which the republican party is to
be made the sponsor now that the
election is over.
