The governor of Idaho Territory
recently delivered his message to the
legislature there in session, whereiu
ha dwells with deserved severity
npon the praotice of polygamy which
practice seems to be fast gaining
round in that territory as well as
many others. He calls attention to
tbe effect that the Edmunds bill only
strikes at polygamy in Utah and
prevents polygamists from holding
office therein, and that in two or
more counties in Idaho where polygr-
amists hold office and control such
counties the law has no effect. Ho

OUR MERCHANT MARINE.
majority Report of the Joint Committee of
Congress The Action Urged Upon
Washington, Dec. 17. The majority re
port of the joint committee to inquire into
the condition and wants of American ship
building and ship owning interests, and to
investigate the causes of the decline of the
American foreign carrying trade, was com
pleted yesterday, and is very exhaustive on
the subject. In considering what remedies
for the prostrate condition of our carrying
trade are within the reach of legislation, it
is obvious that the difficulty of the problem
is greatly increased by the fact that Eng
land has more than a quarter of a century's
start of us in working out her comprehen
sive and ingenious policy of building up her
merchant marine employed in the foreign
trade, since iron and steel began to revolu
tionize transportation. However wise may
be any plan of relief and for its encourage
ment, it is obvious the revival will be slow,
but the stake is so great in its economical
aspects and so vital' to our national growth
and safety that no effort should be spared to
acoomplish the end which congress had in
view when this investigation was ordered.
The committee states: "In endeavoring
to devise a policy which will build up the
iron ship-building industry in the United
States and supply our ship owners with
such vessels as they may want for the for
eign trade at a cost no greater than the cost
of vessels run by their competitors, your
committee have found more or leas differ
ence of opinion among ourselves as to what
would be the wisest and most efficient plan.

effort to provide readily for the decadence

passenger and freight steamships for the
Pacific trade,- of 2131 tons each, having a
speed of 13 knots. It appears that 3,709,
845 pounds of iron, mainly in the form of
plates, angles and bars, were used in the
construction of the hull, engines, boilers,
etc. , of each steamship. Tbe duty on iron,
if imported in this form, would average
under the present tariff about 1J cents per
pound, about $26 for each ton of the steam
ship. Tbe duty on other materials used in
the hull, equipment and furniture of the
steamship would carry up the drawback
allowed from the treasury to about $34.
The cost of cacn one of the steamships, to
wnicn we nave reterreu, was $2Sb,3l7, - or
$134 per ton. The net cost to the original
owners of similar steamships, under the
foregoing plans, after deducting the draw
back, would be about $100 per ton, which,
from all information obtained by your com
mittee, would be substantially the cost of a
similar steamship bnilt upon the Clyde. If
a steamship were intended only for freight
ing, with a speed of seven or eight knots,
usually found in English freighting steam
ers, the quantity of iron used, an:l conse
quently the drawback and cost, would be
considerably reduced. In the case of iron
sailing vessels, only about five-eighths of
the iron used in first-clas3 steamships for the
hull, engines, &c, is required for a given
tonnage, and the drawback would be about
$15 per too. The proposed drawback
therefore, will practically effect the increase
COST Or BUILD INC
An iron steamship in the United States
over its cost on the Clyde. This is the
unanimous judgment of ship-builders and
owners so far as your committee have heard
from them. This is the judgement also of
the board of trade of San Francisco, which
proposed this plan, the maritime association
of New York and other commercial boards.
So far as the original cost of any kind of
vessel effects the question of the restoration
of the American flag to its proper position
on the ocean, there is good reason to be
lieve that the policy proposed will solve the
problem. As it is essential for our iron and
steel ship yards to place themselves in posi
tion to secure contracts for building vessels
for South America, and perhaps other for
eign countries, lour committee recom
mend that a drawback of 10 per cent, be
given on any imported materials of. vessels
constructed to the United States for foreign
account. The report further recommends
attention to and adoption of laws to cover
the object of the investigation, and in con
elusion says: it is unnecessary tor your
committee to dwell on the great importance
for any and all legislative measures that
will tend to revive the American foreign
carrying trade and the- restoration of the
American flag to a position on the ocean
commensurate with our population, wealth
and rank in the family of nations. The
problem presented to congress involves in
terests of exceptional importance .
THE GREAT COMMERCIAL INTERESTS
Of the west and south are especially cor.''
cerned. Tc-day at least 85 per cent, of
their products exported to other countries
depend on foreign vessels, mainly English,
for transportation! and unless something is
done speadily to relieve American shipp'ng
engaged in foreign trade, soon our depend
ence on English ocean steamers will be c m
plete. This places our commerce at the
mercy of England. In case of a war be
tween that country and another power able
to put cruisers on the ocean, American far
mers and the American people as a whole
suffer nearly as much as the beligerents, as,
by having their exports and imports in
British bottoms, it is liable to capture and
confiscation. In its material aspect the
shipping problem is a national one anl in
no case local. It is more than a business
question. It is one which affects our rank
and influences a nation. A nation is known
and felt outside of its own boundaries more
by the flag which floats at the mast-head "of
its merchant marine than by anything else.
It is difficult to conceive the loss wLich we
suffer, not only in national prestige, but
also in national importance by the infre
quency With which American vessels appear
in foreign ports.
The problem concerns our national in
dependence and safety. In these modern
times the seat of power of every nation is
on the rocking waves as well as on the solid
land. The naval power of every country
will in tho long run be proportionate to its
merchant marine. In building up our for
eign carrying trade, therefore, we strength
en the defences of the nation and give new
security ta our republic; While some of
the members of your committee do not col
our in all the statements and reasoning of
the foregoing report, and would recommend
additional legislation, yet all concur in rcc.

Congress is being strongly urged to extend

DeLong's Failure and Death.
Calson, Nev., Dec. 17. The following
appears in the Appeal of to-day: Senator
Jones, who is in Carson, gives an account of
DeLong's Artie expedition, which he got
from Capt. Newbanm in San Francisco.
Newbaum is a Russian, who has been for
many years in the service of the Alaska Fur
Company. He was the last man from whom
DeLong.s party received provisions. He
says: "DeLong left my station, almost at
the northern point of Alaska, I , furnished
him, at the order of the Alaska Fur Com
pany, with sledges, dogs and provisions.
He took 27 dogs and one Indian. I account
for the loss of the party on the theory that
they killed the dogs. I do not believe that
DeLong knew anything about the undertak
ing he was grappling with, and was ignorant
of the means by which a trip could be made
in that region. 1 see by this diary that
there was but one dog left a few days prior
to his death! He must have killed the dogs
without knowing their tremendous value,
and when the dogs are- gone there is abso
lutely no hope. The dogs vould not have
died or been lost they were killed. The
scent of these dogs are remarkable, and they
will detect provisions no matter where they
maybe. When men in these regions kill
Polar bears, and have more meet tllan they
can keep, they cache the meat, and it some
times lies hidden in the ice for years- until
DISCOVERED BY DOGS.
The ice is full of these pfaces. If you
meet an Indian ithat region and kiH his
dog he lies down and dies, considering
that the bettei part of him is gone. An
other great oversight was the neglect of
taking the right kind of guns. I offered
DeLoflg a fowling piece made expressly for
to use in' the Artie seas and calculated to
stand the climate. He refused it because
he said he wanted a gun that would kill
bears. 1 explaned that he needed guns for
birds and not for bears, but he would not
listen, to me and tock Remington rifles; the
weight which hampered him and yet was of
no use. He must have seen sea fowls flying
over his head all the time and ceuld not kill
them. Th diary says the Indian after
drawing the sledge all day would go cut
at night and get birds and he kept the party
alive for two weeks. Anywhere you cut a
hole through the ice and flash a light down
the fish will swarm', but they had no fishing
tackle. All their chances were threwnaway
through ignorance. I am not saying a word
against DeLong. I liked him personally,
but he was not the man to command an
Artie expedition. The North Pole, in ny
opinion can be reached only by following up
the warm currents which flow to the pole
and beyond there is an open sea. .rut men

in the northern part of Alaska, and who
know all about that region, and there is a
