SHIP SUBSIDY BILL
Will Very Likely Cause
Trouble In Congress. .
The New York Commercia
Has to Say on The
One of the sharpest fights likely
to occur in Congress this winter is
expected when he new ship sub
sidy bill, a modified form of the
bill before Congress last session
comes up for .consideration. The
bill is being combatted. by not
merely the .Democratic minority
arid the Democratic press of the
country, but some of the ablest
Republicans in Congress and by
the trade papers. Thus the New
York Commercial says :
"The American export trade has
advanced by leaps and bounds
within the past four years. ( If it
has been . materially retarded by
the necessity of employing' English
ships as carriers,' the fact is ..not
patent upon the face of the re
turns, which sho w an increase btpur
total exports from $807,538,165 iff
1895 to $1,394,483,082 in 1900 and
$1,487,755,5575 in 1901. Imports
of merchandise rose .in the, same
period from - $731,969,965 id 1895
to $849,941,185 m 1900 and ;?S,-
673,016 in 1901. The increase in
imports is not by any means com
mensurate with the increase v m ex
ports, but it is one of -the cardinal
principles of many of the subsidy
advocates that ; large imports of
merchandise are not desirable, and
that an excess of exports is con
elusive evidence of prosperity." 'f
course io 'students oteco
contention that tire
volume of exports is the measure
of the country's prosperity is ab
surd, but' the subsidy grabbers are
not to be deterred by a small 'con
si deration like that. As in the case
of the? tariff, the plain teaching of
facts' and the lessons of 'experience
count for. nothing. - J

Kr. Arnold White Gives His Views on
tn Anglo-Saxon Union.
The well Jcnown Londoi, corres
pondent, Mr. Arnold White, says
in a recent letter to the Philadel
phia deader of the chimerical pro
position that the United States ab
sorb, England:; ;
"The United States could rnever
absorb a monarchy, and monarchv
is interwoven with England's' life
and , character. Secondly, the
British '.Tiles are so .placed in the
Atlantic tnat tney- must receive
the first fury of the Continental
storm : that sooner or later -will
burst against the English speaking
races on both hides of the Atlantic.
England is an 1 American i break

States accept responsibility and in
cur expenses ior insurance against
dangers that 4 must overwhelm
Great Britian before they seriously
touch -American interests? Mr.
Stead regards the lisintregating
of the British empire as certain un
less we can persuade the United
States to take us into partnership.
He appears to ignore the fact that
the large moiety 6f the population
of the United States are no longer
Anglo-Saxons, but belong to races
which are antipathetic to Britan.
He also omits all real consideration
of the future of Australia and South
Afriea,ifiot fco3(8peak of the fpossi-
bilties in Canada ' He states only

As to feasibiUty of union, Mr.
White, is right. As regards the
"Continental storm," the directors
of that meteorological phenomenon
will have abundant cause to regret
th day .that they steer, it up against
the American proposition.
