will be no deviation from that
and all the powers and resouro* of
the board will be exerted, if n< (
to enforce Its ruling*.
The maintenance of the Amrrf

Benson believes, otherwise c(.mpetition.
especially from Great Britain, where a
a almllar reduction has been put
through, practically without labor op
position, will gradually drive American
built and operated ships off the seas
and the great fleet built up during
war days will slowly lapse into u*e
"Sail In American Shlpa."
"I am an ardent believer in the power
of the press," said Admiral Benson
a few days ago. "But I do not
believe the printed word ever sots
very ftir If it expresses an insin
cere or unsound thought. We have
carried the slogan 'Ship and sail In
American ships' into every American
homd and business house. We have
flung to every man the thought that
American ships now sail the seven seas,
and that it is up to him to support our
recreated merchant marine.
"The response to this advertising,
which has been both extensive and ex
pensive, has been most encouraging,"
went on the chairman. "Our campaign
to arouse the American traveller to full
support is meeting with success. Pas
senger ship business was In full swing
When this labor controversy suddenly
upreared to threaten that success.
"But America to-day is ship independ
ent and will remain so. Merchants are
finding that in the long run it pays to
?hip In American ships, their own ships,
for strictly speaking every citizen and
taxpayer Is a stockholder in this won
derful fleet of freight and passenger
"There have been outcries against
the volume of our advertising, but I have
refused to listen for one moment to any
demands or recognize any moves for the
cessation or reduction of our 'Ship and
eall In American ships' campaign In
our newspapers and other publications
But we must ask every merchant, every
? ?
traveller, t?? hard that campaign and

? Justice Wendell P Stafford of the Pla

a score of years we could boast that In
Justice Oould our court had as accom
plished a lawyer, as sound and true a
judge as sat on any bench. Ite loved
the law and the law returned his love.
Brothers, It Is a great thing to be de
voted to a grand Idea, as this man was
dt-voted to the iaw The law was his
religion. He bowed before it as the
true believer bows before a shrine. He
was a lover of the Constitution. He
was a lover of freedom and his fellow
men. To him the fundamentals of the
| law were the very ark of the covenant,
not to be come at by unhallowed hands.
"He was chancellor-llk,j In all his
mental movements. Out of his rich
stores of learning and the richer stores
of heart and human understanding, he
spun, like some rich cloth of gold, the
judgment h<3 made worthy of the law
, that ha revered. I know he sometimes
spoke facetiously of his opinions, but all
who were familiar with his opinions
. know that r.o artist ever lingered moiv ;
lovingly over the strokes that gave per- j
fei Hon to his masterpiece than he over
his exposition of the iaw. What he so
wrote was finished, chaste, sedate."
