Sloslj- Teklnt; l'o??.-?.i.?n o the llrili.li Merchant Msrine. England is trembling before . invasion of the Norsemen. The bold -, ; rovers of tin- Scandinavian psalnwli are not coining down tail titns witl battit aies. They nre going in to knock out the modera Briton in a peaceful, commercial way. They arc baking pos I of bis merchant marine in.?idi ously and slowly, but, as -, mo of tbi Critisii marine Danen declare, rarely. Tho Germans are next iu nuinbt r? totb? Scandinavians amone; tin- invaders. According to recent statistics, mon than '.?.DUO Norwegians and Swedes BSC on tho seagoing ve.-sels of Commodore John Bull. Many of these uro petty tiT.ii ?-rs, aud soino are commanders. What tho British manne papers do not liko about tho matter is that th? propor? tion of boys and young Ballon recruited among tho natives is decreasing. In 1?U 1 tlvru were B\S88 liriti-li bojtJ and 10,949 liritish young sailors iu the merchant marine; in 1S9*> there aren 4,t?lii hoys and 0.S4I young sailors. Tho nnmlier of boys of foreign birth iticrea.-ni from tl.V,? in ls'.U to 85fi in lsi'ti, and the number of young -ailnrs of fnreiun iiirtli. inustlv Scandinavian. increased from 3,b07 in 1891 to 4,91 i iu 1896, After lamenting the situation th.' London Shipping World suggests a ram edy to make tho merchant marine moro attractive to boys. It "We ruiiet inako it easy for decent lads to become and wortli their while to remain seafarers. Somo indue?BBSOl must ho offered to owners and niaiiagi IS to cumber tin ir ships with theni, and Bonio inducement must bo offered to tbe lads to brave the disagreeableliess of lifu on a 'tramp.' It must bo serious? ly faced, and without delay, wlutlur the state will uot pay their apprentice? ship premiums and give them some pre? liminary training, so that they may not really be iucumbranc.s, and if so the atate will have tho right to see that they aro properly fed, clad anil treated and that their life is not one dreary round of deck swabbing. " It seems unlikely that any run. dy can be dovised which will prevent the British shipowner and tho shipping master representing him from getting tho best sailors, young and old, for the least money. The r-caiidinavian i- a cheap, obedient Bad ?1? ver seaman, and he will continuo to kelp mini tho ships of Groat Britain a? long as her ?lop owners want good profits and are torced to compete with ships of other national itioa that have cheap crows.?New VTosh ?tarn I'lr.el (las Kugln.-.
