Exemption of Coastwise Ships
From Canal Toll Subsidy
Washington, I) ('., Jan. 16.
Chairman 4 dam ton of the House
Commerce Committee In u formal
statement today predicted that one
of President-elect Wilson's flrsl re
ipicts on tlie incoming i ongreot
would he fur u repeal of the free pas
sage provision in the Panama ('anal
act applying to American ships.
" I f Secretary Knox succeeds in
avoiding or postponing the demands
of England," said Mr. Adamtou,
"he will undoubtedly remove all
foundation for the Illogical claims
of our people, who say they are op
posed to subsidies but still favor
discrimination in favor of coastwise
ships from tolls, which is a subsidy.
"Bngland mayjuttly complain that
if the canal is to be used as an in
strument to distribute subsidies un
der the treaty, those subsidies mutt
he eipiul to all nations.
"The true Issue for us to deter
mine is shall we rot, our own people
by uu unjust discrimination to en
rich the coastwise shipping trust
"I would not at all object to a
brush with England if we had a just
cause, but It looks very foolish and
unprofitable to maintain any tort of
row with her, commercial, diplomatic
01 warlike, to defend the Infliction
of an incidental discrimination
caused by the immoral and unjust
robbery of our treasury and th
musses of the people to confer bene
fits upon it sr ial interest.''
