partisan ol' no nation but bis own.
But it cannot. There aro conic men
among us, and many resident abroad
who, though boru and bred in the
United States, and calling themselves
Americans, have so forgotten them
selves and their honor as citizens as
to put their pas&louato sympathy
with oho or tho other Bide lu the!
greut European conflict above their
regard for the peuce and dignity of.
the United states. They aieo preach
and practice disloyalty. No laws, I
suppose, can reach corruptions of the
mind and heart; but I should not
speak of others . without also speak
ing UL theso and expressing the even
deeper humiliation and scorn which
ovury (.elf-possessed and thoughtfully
pntrlctir American must feel when
ho Ihiu-ks of them and of tho discredit
V\oy are dally bridging upon us.

While wo speak of the preparation
of the nation to make sure of her
roeurlty and ber effective power wo
must not fall into thc ' patent''error
of supposing thut her real strength
comps from armaments and mere
safeguards of written law. It comes,
of course, irora her people, their en
ergy, their success in their under
taking, their opporutnity to use

home land and of the lands outside
our continental borders which look to
us fur protection, for encouragement
and for assistance in their develop

Th?< domestic questions which engag

aro more vital to tho nation in thia

unless we wisely and promptly direct
the force ot our laws into these all
importont fields of domestic action.
A matter which it nooma to mo we
should have very much at heart is tho
creation of the right Instrumentali

that 1 do not need your, authority to

Many conditions strut which wc

tions of Europe once moro take up

what theso changes will bc no one

lem. Tho most we can do is to m^ke I
certain thui wo have the necessary in
strumentalities of information con
stantly at our Borvice so that v>e may
be sure that we know exactly, what
we are dealing with when we como
to act, if lt should bc necessary to

to adapt ourselves lo. I may ask the
privilege of addressing you more at
length on this important matter a
little later In your'session.
In tho meantime may I make this
suggestion? Tho transportation prob
lem is on exceedingly serious and
pressing one in this country. There
has from time to time of lalo been
reason to fear that our railroads
would not much longer be able to j
cope with it successfully, as at pres- i
ont equipped and coordinated. I sug
ges*. that it would be wise to provide j
for a commission of inquiry to ascer
tain by a thorough canvass of thc
whole question whether our laws os
at present framed and administered

obviously a problem that lies at tho
very foundation of our efficiency ns a
peopie. Such an Inquiry ought to
draw out every circumstance and
opinion worth considering .'.and we
need to know all sides of-the matter
if we mean. to do anything in the
field of federal legislation. .
No one, I am sure, would wish to
take any backward Btep. The regu
lation of thc railways of the country |
by federal commission has had ad
mirable reaults and has fully justi
fied the hopes and expectations ot
those by whom the policy of regula
tion was originally proposed... Th?
question ls not what should we undo?

a ator toward; ti : building up cf an

cated today by l?mcry R. Johnson,
p;ofeasor of transportation ani com
moree in tho University of Pennayl
vania, In an address before tho inter
nrt'.ional trade . conference which be
gan hero-today under auspices of the
National association of Manufacturers.
Professor Johnson declared that the
European war had' brought home tDc
need of on adequate marino sorvlco
to protect American trade. Ho laid
that the only thing that had saved
American foreign commerco was the
fact that the seas had beon controlled
by Great Britain, a, power whlo'i con
trolled two-fl?ii oi thc world's ocean
"If Ute European war," ho cald, "were
being Wag??d on tho seas aa widely as
it is being fought on the land, Ameri
can foreign commerce would be prac
tically paralyzed at tho present time."
Professor Johnson caid tho urgency
or the present situation ImpoEcd on
congress ,H e obligation to agree moon
comprehensivo legislation thi3 winter
to end tho Inequality between the navi
gation laws of the United States and
these of other maritime nations.
"There can be no hope." he said, "of
securing for tue service ot.'tho foreign
trade of the United States a large ton
nage, of chartered vessels under the
American, flag'If . the conditions of
operating vessels under the flag bf the
United Slates aro more onerous than
the requirements of the navigation
laws bf oilier countries."
Outlining his plan for the creation of
a federal shipping board, Professor
. . "The shipping.board of the marino
department of the Interstate commerce
cotnmision would be a hedy of ex
perts, which, like .the interstate com
merce commission' as regards railroad -
regulation, would have much weight*
with congress in i all. mattera of leg
islation .regarding shipping.
: "This board should, first of all, be
directed f>y congress io investigate
shipping and na tjation laws of the
United States and to report at an ear
ly date a revised code of maritime
