New York Herald Hurrau, 1
Washington. D. C.. Oct. M. J
Unofficial announcement of the appointment
of new* members of the
United States Shipping: Board, made
through the Associated Press, has
raised a new storm of protest over
the manner in which the 'American >
merchant marine is being treated by
the Administration. .So forceful has
! Ijeen the protest that official announcement
of the nw appointments
!has been withheld and a change is
expected when the list Is made public
l'rom the White House.
The appointments, as unofficially
j. nnnouticed, carry the suggestion of
j; lewards for partisan service and are
!not regarded as having had in mind
the necessities of the merchant marine.
That these necessities are great Is I
r freely acknowledged. America has
built ships, but ships alone do not
constitute a merchant marine, and It
Is realized something must be done to
meet the cutthroat competlf^K whitih
has started all over the world, presumably
with the design of making
the upbuilding of the American merchant
marine Impossible Ocean transvortation
has been turned topay turvy. |
Ships are grouped where they are no
cargoes, while cargoes are assembled
where there are no ships.
Rival Marine la Operated.
In addition to the delay in building
the plans of the American merchant marine,
due to the dilatory tactics adopted
be tho President, it ! understood the
"War Department le operating a mereli.tr
t marine of Its own tn opposition to
the Shipping Board and With the sanction
of the President.
Yhlle those contradictory and dilatory
Policies are being purrued. the uffalrF of
fh? Shipping Board nre becoming more
muddled dally owing to the fact that Admiral
Benson and John A. Donald, the
. unit two present members of the board,
'i-.ve been opposed to udoptlng a policy
which might not moot the approval of
the new board when appointed.
In selecting the membors of the board,
ss unofficially announced, President Wilson
has challenged the Senate, and particularly
the' Senate Committee of Comnurce,
of which Senator Harding ia a
member. Both by his delay in making
the ppointments and In hi* selection of
the men he has. shown, it 1h stated here.
h complete lack of sympathy with the
Jones Merchant Marine law.
The nature of the appointment* Is regarded
as In keeping with the attitude
the President demonstrated to thl? law
when he point blank refused to obey the
law's mandate tn the matter of abrogating
provisions of < ommejcial treaties
which would have made it possible for
preferential treatment to he accorded to
American shipping
Shipping men who are deeply concerned
say he has named men to the
new Shipping Board whom he knows i
cannot be confirmed by the Senate. !
when be had opportunities to name a ,
hourrl so manifestly 'well qualified that
even a Senate intent on holding tip all
of his important appointments until
after March 4 would hesitate to refuse
to do so. because by so doing it would
he charged with extreme partisanship !
fn fact, the Sen., re regarded the early i
appointment of a Shipping Board so lm-1
portant that Informal assurances were i
given by the Senate Committee on Commerce,
which will pass on the eonflrma- |
tion*. that If he would appoint a well j
qualified board and would appoint it J

The law which was approved June 5 ,
provided "that the commissioners shall i

after the enactment of thin act." Although
weighty and grave question* affecting
flu? whole future of the merchant
! marine wore at stake the President disregarded
this mandate writ] ban waited
more than four months before malting
the appointments.
There hag been no question about difficulty
in finding available men. A Hat

President and has been there for a long {

shipping business and all of them have

City of Newark. Obtained
by Broker for 82.500.

Fire (.'apt. Quigley Finally
Gets Boat, Giving First
Buyer $16,000 Profit.
The steam launch Grover Cleveland,
a Government boat that did its bit In
the war n.nd was among the leftovers
when the floating stock of the Army
Transport Service was reorganized,
was bought yesterday by the city of
Newark for use as a flreboat for $18,300.
The deal was closed before the
city of Newark found that the United
States Government sold the Grover
Cleveland to a broker a few weeks
ago for $2,600. That fact reminded the
Newark authorities that the sale to
the broker was consummated at a time
when they were offering $10,000 for tl??>
A little figuring on paper showed the
Newark men that the entrance of the
broker Into the deal cost the Government
at least $7,500 and the city of
Newark about $8,500.
About the same time they surveyed the
Glover Cleveland and decided they
shouldn't find fault. The survey proved
the boat for which they had given $18,500
to be worth at least $50,000. Repeating
the calculation on that new basis,
It was shewn that the Government lost
nbuut $17,500. William .1. Hreunan. Discolor
of Public Safety of Newark, said
t'u? city was well satisfied.
Selling Boat .\obi??ty'? Huatiiran.
On September 28 Mr. Hvnnnan went to
Hoboken with T-hre Captain Mathew ,T.
Qutgley to inspect the Grover Cleveland,
notice* having been received that site
was for sale. They waited around for several
hours, but In the maze of clerks and
other employee* they could find no one
authorised to receive bids for the vessel.
m- TCr-unnari uiivn Ti* Anally left the
transport base, telling Ca.pt. Quigley to
stay there until lie found sum* one who
know i-.bOut the launch.
The captain at last located Capt.
Ramon R Harrison of the legal branch
of the transportation service, it teas explained
In Newark last night. T'ndet the
authority given hint by Mr. Brcnnan,
Capt. Qulgley offered Ca.pt. Harrison
510,000 for the boat. The latter he
didn't have the authority to make the
sale for the Government, but that he
would call the matter to the attention of
Lieut. Otto Jtuvde, the ottl *er in charge
of the sale. The Newark fire captain
tviis told to return the following da J.
The next day. when Capt. Qulgley
called at the Hohoken piers, lie couldn't
find the Grover Cleveland. Inquiry disclosed,
It Is alleged, that the launch had
been sold by Lieut. Runde to a broker,
KrttMl Rudolph of Brooklyn.
Broker's Price Rises to fii.t.DOU.
So Capt Qulgley journeyed over to
the broker's office and opened negotiations.
fie found that Rudolph wanted
$85,000 for the launch. That was higher
than he tould go without further word
from Mr. Brennari. and he forthwith
called the latter and explained the situation.
Newark was bound to have a
flreboat, and Mr. Brennan, knowing he
was getting a bargain for his town, authorised
Capt. Qulgley to go aa high ai

mysterious resources and with
close on 200,000 members and with

This huge army, numbering in all *e\eral

only source of revenue is supposed to bo
tn the form of subscriptions from private
individuals. lYoifi merchants, bankers,
manufacturers and farmers. It Is not
subordinate to any State authority, the
officers of the army swearing allegiance
to Herr Bscherlcli alone. . In this connection
it may Vie said that bis fwganly.atlon

Democratic difficulties in trottlngr the i
rank ami file of tho party to become '
enthusiastic enough fcr James M. fox
to put up money for his election wan ,
shown In the- statement of campaign ,
contributions ai)d expenditures filed
with, the Clerk of the House of Tlcpre
sentutlvps by tite Democratic National
I'onimittce to-day.
tn contrast with the $8,000,000 or
mor< whlcl: Democrats put back of
.YJr. Wilson four years ago the party
had collected up to October 21 only
$077,981 and had spent $099,971. leaving
ir short about $20,000.
In additio"- to its sorry showing the
statement also nude plain that many
thousands fewer persons contributed
to the Democratic than to the Republican
fund. That the Democratic fund
wen* a? high as It did was due to one
$20,000 and one $10,000 and ft number
I of $.\000 contributions. The Republican
jstatement showed only sixteen con-'
tribvtlons over $1,000.
The difficulties of iho Democratic
money collectors !? laid here to the sensational
charges of 'Jo v. fox himself I
that the republlc-arm were collecting a
tlC.rtOO.OOO campaign f ind and that the |
big interesta were trying to buy an
umlerhold on the Presidency through the :
Republican party. These charges had
the effect of scaring away those who j
Intended to give large contribution" to |
the Democrats, while Republicans with '
j a $1,000 limit were not affected.
The Democratic statement alan showed

Urg- contributions, which, according to '

Wilson rejected It. He Faid to Senator
Hitchcock: "Any reservation or resolution

Much discussion of the str ike quee- '
