.WASHINGTON, February 3. The

troduced by Representative Humphrey
of Washington, contains thrco distinct

Amerlcnnv ships on loutes to South
America, China, Japan, tho Philippines
and Australasia to $1 per mile out

miles .or more; second, to Increaso tho
tonnage taxes on tho trans-oceanic
trade; and, third, freo ships, that Is,
admit foreign built ships to American
register for tho foreign trade. J
"The first of theso propositions Is
tho most Important." says Representa
tive Humphrey. "It Is proposed by
this ccctlou to amend tho uct of March
3, 1S9I. This law Is unknown oven to
somo membere of Congress, yet It has
been on our statute books for eigh
teen years, and no man has over sug
gested Its repeal or criticised what
has been accomplished under It. This
law Is directly resronolblo for every
American vessel on tho Atlantic ocean,
and It it was ropcalcd the American
Hug would entirely disappear from that
ocean within sixty dayb."
Representative Humphrey said that
If tho bcctlon of tho bill providing for
now tonuugo taxes was adapted' It
would bring Into tho national treasury
about a million dollars a year, all of
which aro carrying 95 per cent, of tho
coiomerco of tho United States 011 tho

Under tho freo chip provision of tho
bill, Representative Humphrey said, an
American citizen can buy a vessel,
lullt anywhere, put tho American flag
on It and run It exclusively In tho for
eign trade. Such vessels aro not to
recelvo nny Government nld.
Tho ship subsidy was orderod favor

occurred between Mr, Humphrey nnd
Attorney James M. Dougherty, of Now
York, representing tho Merchants' As
sociation of Now York each Impunglng
tho sincerity of tho other In his attl
tudo toward Ship subsidy.

ctlvo. Humphrey addressing Mr,
Dougherty. "You aro hero pretending

"I would deman'j a'wltlulrawnl of
that statement If I wcro not appearing
before p Congressional commlttco," re
torted tho attorney,
"Tho romarlt will not be withdrawn
sir," answered Mi'.1 Humphrey.
Amid loud Calls for order, Mr.
Dougheity, facing tho Washington
member, angrily shouted;
"I don't bellevo you nro In earnest
In vour npparent doslro to closo tho
