Cannot Affect Great Britain.
While the British Foreign Secretary
seejns to see some fundamental differ
en.e betweeen subsidies, even though
tneasured bv the amount of the tolls
naid. and failure to collect tolls, lt wlll
Jnot he diffi< ult to demonstrate that Ihfl

ping nre actually collected and sub

?Ubatdy. or whether thov are remltted
ln the tirst plsee, always assuming. as
Ih the case, that such remlaalon does
not operato to increase the tolls Im?
posed on foreign shipping.
Sir Bdward Grej goes even further ln
blfl admissions, granting ln effect thal
th? Hay-PaunoogetO treaty does not
even opcrata to prevent th-i I'nlted
States from subaldiilng any of the. ves?
sels, whei her engaged ln the coastwise
trade or otherwlse, so that. ln the llght
of the conccsslon made ln almost the
opening parajcraph of the communlca
tion. there appears to be nothing to
prevent the I'nited States from aub
aldtalng Bll Ita vessels, not alono th~=?
engaged in tiie coastwise trade, but
those which < ome Into direct competi?
tion with British shipping. And thia
? omOOded, the arRument that this coun?
try could not meaaure Its pubsidles t<*
fureijen shipping by the nmount ex
pended lu l'anama tolls falls to the
Confhcts with Taft's View.
A strong and a OOttVlnetng argumen'
is made by the> British Foreign Secre?
tary ln support of the contention that
the words "all nations" as used in the
Hay-Pauncefote treaty Include th<
l'nlted States, and in this < ontention
i? at direct varlance with the views of
the President and tha Se< retary of
State. Having. however, conceded thr
right of the I'nited States to subsidizi

Toward the ronclusion of the oom

which goe.s before, when he saya lt ls
