declared that apparently the anti

of Foreign and Domestic Commerce's
work in "surveying the world," for

Sting foreign built ships t o registry
when owned by Americans, penalties
aand discriminating duties imposed on
Ssuch vessels remained on the statute
Ibooks. The bills passed repealed the

r Washington.--Closely guarded plans
of the senate administration democrats
for saving the ship bill developed as
leaving the bolting democrats out of
the reconing entirely and making the

on was to move an amendment to the
