Church Street, first door west of Steam Laundry, Concrete Block. Telephone 438 UNION CITY. TENN. Modified Merchant Marine Bill. The new bill of the Administra tion designed for the building oi a merchant marine and naval auxili aries, the first details of which have Just been made public, appears like ly to come much more nearly meet ing the demands of the dissenters than was to have been expected, at the same time retain all'of the good points of the bill that was defeated at the last session of Congress. One of the most important changes is in cases in which the Govern ment would undertake the actual operation of ships and that is un doubtedly an improvement. No one ever desired that the Government become a ship-operating trust. The desire is and has always been that American capital be so encouraged that it will construct and operate an adeauate merchant marine. It has been thought, and is undoubted ly true, that private capital will not build ships to ply trade routes until the trade is there, but recent world conditions have generally modified that. The war has placed the freight where it must wait for American bottoms to carry it, more so than Government fostering could have accumulated in many years. Therefore, a bill that might have offered the best solution when the Wilson administration first began considering the drawing of a mer chant marine bill might not be the best now, and the changes in the bill may not at all mean a change in the policy of the Administration to ward the merchant marine, but merely a change in conditions af fecting the building and operation of a merchant marine. Under the bill now being prepared, the Government would not under take the operation of ships except upon routes where no privately owned American ships are operated, and the policy would be to withdraw from operation then so soon as pri vately-owned American ships could be induced to enter the trade. The bill provides for an initial appropriation of $5,000,000 for the purchase and lease of vessels, the money to be obtained by the sale of Panama canal bonds. Vessels so acquired could be resold or released to private owners as occasion might arise, but all of them, whether op erated directly by the Government or by private owners, wxmld be sub ject at all time to the call of the President for use in war. The first and primary object to be obtained by the operation of such a merchant marine would be com mercial, a big item in the program of preparedness for peace. That would be just as necessary as it now is if there could be absolute assur ance that the United States would never know war, never even hear rumor of war. A secondary, though potentially equally important, object is to provide a supply of ships that could care for our needs on the wa ter in the event of war a big item in the program of preparedness for possible war. Congress must realize more fully than it did before the urgent neces sity for an adequate merchant ma rine. The bill is somewhat better adapted to actual needs. There should be no question of its enact ment into law and the speedy put ting of the law into operation. Nashville Tennessean. CLASSIFIED COLUMN FOR SALE 5-room cottage, lot 70x125, on Third street.
