Congress should give prompt at
tention to the icstoration of our
American merchant marine, once the
pride of the Irish seas in all the
creat ocean highways of commerce.
To my mind few more important sub
jects so imperatively demand its in
telligent consideration. The United
States has progressed with marvelous
l aridity in every field of enterprise
and endeavor, until we have become
foremost in nearly nil of the great
lines of inland trade, commerce and
industry. Yet while this is true,
our American merchant marine has
been steadily declining, until it is
now lower both in the percentage of
tonnage and the number of vessels
employed than it was prior to the
Civil War. Commendable nrogress
has been made in late years in the
UDbuilding of the American navy;
but we must supnlcment these ef
forts by nrovid:r, as a proper con
sort for it a rcr hant marine amply
sufficient for our own carrying trade
to foreign countries. The question
is one that appeals both to our busi
ness necessities and the PATRIOTIC
ASPIRATIONS OF A GREAT PEO
PLE. President William McKinley,
under whose administration Hawaii
This is a busy hive of industry,
where every man can find work and
wages, where all the people are con
tent and happy and prosperous and
where all of them love the flag and
would have it maintained in honor.
(Great applause.) The patriotism of
the country was never higher than
at this moment; and there is just one
thing in the mind of every true
American today, and that is that
OUR FLAG SHALL TRIUMPH AND
THOSE WHO ASSAIL IT SHALL
FAIL OF THEIR PURPOSE. Prcsi
dent Wm. McKinley.
