SKIP SUBSIDY IS NECESSARY
(Scrlppi News Association)
Washington. D. C. April 15 A state
ment was submitted in the house today
by Alfred Winsor of the Boston Steam
ship Company, which says that unless
government aid is extended to his comp
any they will be competed to haul down
the flag and go into dry dock or sell to
foreigners. "American ship owners," he
said, "Who try without government aid
to compete with subsidzed foreign craft,
comit financial suicide." Former Con
gressman Loud declared that Spreckle's
line, from San Francisco to Australia will
be abandoned and placed under Japanese
management if subsidy fails, bill fails.

"LA BELLE MARIE"
AT STEWARD'S THEATRE TONIGHT
' Scene from
'LA BELLE MARIE" . ' ,
AT THE THEATRE
The largest house of their irtjagement,
w itnessed the Swain Ca's. scenic pro
duction of "In Sight of St. Paul's." . This
p lay is conceded one of the strongest
melo-dramas ever written and was
splendidly handled by the Swain Co.
Miss Swain, as "Aileen" played a most
difficult role in a most finished manner
and was most capably supported by Mr.
Fanning, and the balance of the cast,
Miss Collins as "The Panther" appeared
in a new role which she handled in a
most capable manner. Tonight the great
soceity play "LaBellt Marie" holds the
boards, on which occassion all ladies at
tending the performance will receive a
souvenir photograph of Miss Cora King
Swain, the clever and versatile leading
lady with this Company.
