Americani Registry For
Foreign Vessels. The action lproposd, to. be taken by Congress to so chanige our laws regar, ling foreign vessels as to ;a(mil tblr'rll lmore easily and readily t,, .\American registry and enalt, them to sail under our flag--will be welcomed the world over, will prove a great blessing to this c,,unriy, will pre vent the almost complete cessa tion of trade threatened by a general Eurolpean war, will prob ably materially chanlge the status of the world's marine and may enable the United Sate:, to re gain the positionl of plri)minence in the shipping world it once held. That prominence was des troyed in our last great struggle, the civil war. when the ravages of the Alabama, Sumpter and other Confederate cruisers de stroyed hundreds of Ainierican vessels and swept them from many seas. We have been try. ing ever since to make good this loss, to find a way out of the dilliculty and to revive American shipping, and we have been dis cussing and legislating on the subject ever since, but with very little success in the way of mak ing any progress. By prohibi tive laws we have held control of our coastwise comrmerce; but the great bulk of our foreign trade has gone into alien hand, mainly English, German, French, Nor wegian and Italian. European war may, in part at least, restore what American war destroyed. The necessity of ac tion just now, in the interest of commerce and of our own people, must be manifest to all. The fact that nearly all the vessels engaged in Atlantic commerce are owned in European countries that have been drawn into or likely to be drawn into, this great war, has paralyzed the merchant marine. Foreign vessels are everywhere being tied up, either in their home ports or in those of some neutral power. New York has a large fleet of imershant vessels at its wharves, and New Orleans has several awaiting developments. It would be dangerous for these vessels to put to sea, as in the event of further dleclarations of war-andti they came suddenly t,.day-they would be subject to capture by an emnemy. If, however, they remnain prac tically blockaded, what is to be come of commerce, :and how is A merica, which on this o.casion must supply Europe with nearly all it needs, to ship its products abroad? We have over one hun dred million bushels of wheat for Europe; but how is it ever going to reach the other side of the At lantic if we have no ships oif our own in whichl to, send it, and so large a proportion ,of the foreigi ves:els are afraid to put to sea. Great Britain l)pr)l)aly bivlieves that it can keep the, AtlIantic open for its vessels, but evenl on this point some elemrAt of doubt 1u ,t exist. Heretofore the requirements of for..eign- built vessels se(lkig A'neriec n registry have been so se:.re as to shut tlihem out, and very few have avail Jt themselves of tihe privilege. It is Proposedl t. modify these conditions so as to render it easier to secure this re:istry and to, indune vesse!s t. change their colers. Among oth.r chan..,es proip.sd ;are the elimi tti i o:i t' he tIe limit that tue vess...ls ,.'

On the uother, ha:,iw, it is point ed out that this American regis ,l, mus j,.bo.l; ikid and per .,; tl btars so as to enable English, German and other vessels to temporarily secure the protection of The American flag, to run it up during the prevalence of war, and then haul it down again the moment peace is declared. The vessels that ask for American i registry and protection must do - ·o seriously, must give satisfac tory pledges that they intend to rehmrair American. To do other - wise woul involve us in serious 3 complications with the belliger 3 ents. The plan is so promising, is so greatly to the advantage of all, that little or no objection is to be expected when it is presented be fore Congress to-day. There Shave been a few mutterings from American shipbuilders, but their complaints will not be considered as against the absolute necessity on the part of the United States of keeping open at this time the world's lines of trade and com t merce, particularly those with e Europe. f At the "County Fair." It would seem from ahe fol lowing that the people around Senatobia, Miss., are just a "wee bit akin" to some of the people of Washington Parish. Read the fllowing and let our 1914 Parish FPair profit by your con side.ration of same. Ed Blakeslee, writing in the Bulletin says: 'Brother Farmer. don't go to your county fair this fall, look at the exhibits made by more entergetic and enter prising neighbors and say, 'I had better stuff than that at home.' [Begin today getting something in shape to ctrr'y to that fair and make your neighbor sit up and take notice. You can do it if you will." How many of our Tate county citizens have heard this every year they have visited the County Fair. In fact it is heard so often that unless someone should spring it next fall upon your ears, however, it will be like mold upon a cheese rind and you will fell like kick ing yourself for not kicking the guy that s)prings it."
