FRANCES SORE FINGERS.
BURNT EY TCX) MUCH FOOLING
Bow They Worked Eaumeui Baatatiea
Which Iteealteal tw DlsrHire;lifly Small
Krtim-ii Artificial Stimulus tThlefc
rnfortanately Failed to Stimulate.
The oddest freak in the statesmanship
of the time is the proposal of the high
protectionists in congress to rerire Amer
ican chipping by means of subsidies at
the same time that they continue to dis
courage, foreign trade by means of the
massive tariff wall, and paasMcKinley
customs bills, which treat importers as if
they were enemies of the country.
If the thing they are attempting could
be done at all, it would not perhaps be
an unwise measure to pay millions in
order to put life into our ocean commerce.
The subsidy idea presents many attrac
tions when looked at merely as a theory;
. but it always looks much loss attractive
after it has been tried.
It behoores us to be students of mar
kets rather than of maxims, and to take
the practical view gained by actual ex
lerience of our own or of othera. It
will be well to consider the result of the
most recent and most gigantic eubfeidy
experiment of the ten years just past.
That experiment waa made by France,
and France Iwrnt her fingers.
In 1S1 the French became alarmed at
the decay of their chipping interests,
During the previous ten years they had
seen the number of jew ships built in
France, or bought abroad and entered as
French Teasels, fall off nearly one-half.
They had seen their total tonnage fall off
more than one hundred and fifty thou
sand tons in ten years. Thev had seen in
1879 that only 2S per cent, of the ton
nage cf vessels entering and leaving
French ports were sailed under the three
colored flag that every Frenchman loves.
All this was most humiliating. It
wounded the national pride. Something
must be done if our citizens will not buy
or make ships and pay the bills out of
their own pockets, why we rnu.'-t reach
deep down into the national pocket and
help them to foot their bills. Ferhaps,
too, some of the wise men of France made
use of a ready made, cheap argument
that we hear from some of our so called
wise men: The money will be kept in the
country when we pay it to our own be
loved Frenchmen, and 60 who is hurt?
We take it in taxes and pay it to the ship
makers and shipowners, they pay it to
their workmen, the workmen pay it to
the butchers and grocers and other
tradesmen. And so we keep the money
all the time swinging round the circle,
nobody hurt, and France ha her fine
new ships plowing all seas and enriching
her people with the goods of every clime.
It was a pleasant vision, and appealed
most temptingly to the bright Gallic
imagination. And so the lawmakers
"got together" and passed a law which
should send the flag of la belle France
- into the harbors of all lands.
A law was' passed giving bounties not
only for the building but also for the
sailing of vessels. All wooden ships of
lesa than 200 tons should receive 2 a ton
when built. Those above 200 ton should
have $4. As iron ships are much more
efficient in the contest for supremacy on
the high seas thee should have $12
ton, and a further bounty of $1.20 should
be paid on the machinery put into these
ships; and the government must help
also to pay for the renewal cf boilers as
they are used up about eighty cents en
So much, then, for the building. Bat
these ships may not sail as much or on
so long voyages as they ought.
Very well; then we will pay them for
sailing, too. For every voyage to for
eign countries we will pay our fine new
ships thirty cents a ton for every 1,000
miles sailed daring the first year, and
after that one cent less per ton every
Now it does look as if the thing ought
to go. We have buoyed up our ship on
all sides with subsidies she certainly
Well, float she did for a while.
Now let us look at a few figures to see
how she kept on floating. In 13S1
things had reached their lowest ebb;
France had vessels with a total tonnage
of 914,573. The next year our beautiful
subsidy scheme begins to tell there is a
gain of 63,64; tons, and the government
cheerfully puts its hand into its pockets
and pays down $2,199,900. In 1S83 an
other gain of 20,062 tons. That di 1 not
show up so well as was hoped. How
ever, as the ships constructed last year
have made some easy voyages, we are
having navigation at least, and so gov
ernment pays down this time 52,24,000.
Next year government begins to smile
again; we have added 30,150 tons more
to our tonnage, and there have been
longer voyages than ever. Government
looks more cheerful, and relieves the
treasury of $2,614,000. A big sum this
time, but we have aided ships and have
made long cruises, and we can aflord to
-pay for such good things.
The year 1S85 ends, and government
-calculates tonnage this year, S3, (514 less
than last year. IIow is that? Have we
not built 16,000 tons ourselves this year
and bought 9.631 tons from abroad?
True; but French ships have now be
come too numerous. The old owners,
who were making money before the day
of subsidies, now complain that they
cannot get cargoes, and so can declare
no dividends. Hence some of these ships
without subsidies must be sold, driven to
the wall by subsidy fed ships, which can
afford to carry freight more cheaply.
The next year the tonnage falls off
7,000 and the year following 20,000, gov.
eminent meanwhile paying an average
subsidy of $2,000,000, for there are still
long voyages, and ships are still being
- built and bought to gam subsidies. Our
old ships are leaving us in still greater
numbers in this year 18S7. This year we
bought and made 30,000 tons, and yet
tie total tonnage is 20,000 less than last
year. That means that 50,000 tons have
left us in a single year. And in this year
1S87 our tonnage is actually less than it
was in 18S2. And government has paid
$11,850,000 in subsidies in six years.
The French had not learned what
every farmer knows, that if he doubled
the oamber of his wagons that does not
doable the capacity of his barns or the
number and fertility of his acres.
The tariff of France prevented any
great growth of her import trade, and
she was not able to sell any greatly in
creased quantity or ner own goods unless
he would take foreign goods in pay
ment. Her ships could not create com
merce, but commerce does create ships
everywhere and always. Wherever there
are wares to be transported ships are
sure to come sooner or later, and with no
. long waiting, either.
A recent French writer sums up the
result of this experiment of his country
men by confessing that it had aggra
vated the situation, and had proved it
self to be a source of mischief, not of
Shipping cannot thrive where tariffs
