According to the Wnahing'ton cor
rcspondent of the Baltlmore Bun, Pres?
ident Taft will make 8 StronpJ appeal
ln lils message to Congreii for tho
bnactment at the approaohing sesslon
of an ocean mell subsidy law. We
hope he -will do nothing of tho sort,
and, lf ho do, wo trust that the Con?
gress will vote lt down. The nentl
ment of the people on thls subject,
whlch has already been expressed
many tlmes, can no longer bo mlsun
ilerstood. There is no ncccssity, in the
flrst place, for such a law, It would
be the enterlng wedgo for other sub
sldy meaaurea whlch the country does
not need and whlch would only inuro'
to the advantage of a handful of ship
hullders. The b'll will come up ns
"unfinlshed buslness" in the Senate or
otherwlse in the Houte. The Humph
rey blll, reported hy tho Merchant
Marlne Commlttee, and now on tho
House calendar, can be called up at
an early date. In the Senate the bill
has the rlght of way, but can bo lald
aslde from day to day,'and IC the Pres?
ident shall rocommend lt, and tho
tneasure shall be brought up in. c-ithcr
House. It is hoped that the Democrats
and tho Insurgents wlll klll It
outrlght by a dlrect vote or i-o.sort to
every posslble parllamentury measure
for its defeat. The Republlcans and
Democrats will fal] to undcr.stand cor
rectly tho rneaning of tho last electlon
if they thlnk that this now graft ls
one ot the things the people votcd for
ln November.
Tho perslstenco wlth whlch the
lobbylsts have pushed the ship subsidy
husiness has been worthy of a good
cause. Congress aftor Congress, ses?
slon aftor sesslon, they have swarmed
about the Capitol in tho interest of
thi* measure, and Congress after Con
gross and session after sesslon, thoy
have been defeated, dofeated becauso
thn people of the Unlted States do
r.ot want it. It is not necessary ln
any senso to the business prosperity
of the country. Thls is plalnly mani
fest ln the reports or our stcadlly in
crcasing foreign commorce, There is
much talk, and much wlld talk, about
trade following the flag. but it is all
fnlk. What ls needed is not bountles
for ship builrlers, but the repeal of
?such of the navigatlon hnvs as wlll
tnable tlie ship owners and ship opor?
ators of this country to buy thelr
shlps wherethey please. To talk about
ravlsing the tarlff downward and at
the same tlme to insist that the coun?
try shall bo saddled wlth ship* Sub
sldfes Is an appeal which should have
no lodgment in tho judiclal mlnd of Mr.
Taft. XVo hope that he wlll not press
tho ship subsidy questlon. and. if hc do,
we hope that Congress wlll dtfBregard
hls recpmrnendatlons upon thls sub?
