"What are the land agents and franchises given to railroads? Subsidy, What are the advances made for highways? Subsidy. What are the farm mortgage banks for, if not to provide those concerned at least an indirect subsidy? These are beneficint ap plications of a principle with which the 'public is thoroughly familiar. Why den its potential beneficience In another quarter because it happens to come for ward under a different designa Mr. Greene said the bill pro vided a merchant marine fund of $4,000,000 annually, to which would be added ten per cent of the annual customs duties, amounting to about $30,000,000.
