Alaaka. under the Act of March 3, 1879. ' SUBSCRIPTION RATE8: Q?e year, by mail J10.0I Six montha. by mall 60< Per month, delivered 1.04 ANOTHER SIDE OF THE CANAL TOLI.S QUESTION. THE account of President Wilson's message delivered to Congress yesterday on the Panama canal tolls question contained in our dis patches quotes the President as say ing that the exemption of American ships from the payment of tolls was a "mistaken economic policy." This calls to mind a viewpoint of this question that was not discussed in the debates in Congress when the measure was up for consideration in the second half of the Taft administration. Here tofore it has been debated solely with reference to its relation to the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, its bearing upon the shipping industry of the United States and that of transconti nental transportation rates. That the free use of the canal by American ships would operate to coun teract the effect of the recent reduc tion of the tariff has not been dis cussed until quite recently. Under the scheme of management that has been adopted for ihe canal it is con templated that the tonnage tax on ships passing through it must meet the operating expenses of the canal and interest on its cost and provide a surplus for repairs and for a sink ing fund to redeem the bonds. If American coastwise ships were per mitted the free use of the canal, the whole burden of the canal's cost would fall upon foreign tonnage. That would permit American ships in the coast wise trade to make a lower freight rate from coast to coast than ships engaged in foreign trade could make. An increase in freight rates has the same effect on trade and commerce that a raise in the tax duty has. There- j fore, if we charge foreign tonnage for1 the whole canal expense and permit American tonnage to use it free of cost it is equivalent to placing an ad ditional tariff on foreign goods. That would permit the American manufac-j turer to charge more for his product, and to that extent remove competi tion. On the other hand, if American, tonnage is required to bear its share of the canal expense it would relieve foreign shipping to the extent of the amount paid by the American ships, and would make competition that j much closer. It would have the effect of reducing the cost of the consumers' purchases. On this question as on the tariff President Wilson has taken the logl cal Democratic position, notwithstand Ing that the Democratic National plat form declared for free American ships The proposed fusion of the Pro gresslve party with the Democrats lr Utah is a natural coalition in the West. If the Progressives would gel 1 the New Nationalism foolishness out of their minds most of the them would ' be as well satisfied with the Wilson administration as their Utah brethren , are. 1 REINDEER INDUSTRY IS PROS PERING. 1 * THE STATEMENT made by W. T. LOPP, that the number of rein deer in Alaska has increased 25 . per cent, since 1912 and that the aver \ age size of the animals is increasing and the showing of W. G. Beattie that ? the $292,000 the United States govern ment has Invested in the reindeer in ' dustry in Alaska has produced a value in reindeer herds and profits amount i ing to $1,162,060 completely dispose of the sensational report that has gained wide publicity in Alaska and else where that the industry has reached a losing point. This is more in keep ing with the understanding of the sit uation held by those who have fol lowed with interest this branch of the work that has been done in Alaska by the Bureau of Education.
