When Mark Hanna advocated a
ship subsidy as the best method of
building up the merchant marine,
he was denounced by Congress aud
the country. His plan was viewed
by many as an attempt to loot the
treasury. The Democrats took up
the cry and condemned ship sub
sidies iu* their party platforms.
President Wilson has attempted to
build up the merchant marine by a
new process. As a result he has
brought upon himself a bitter fight.
Nevertheless, there is a sentiment,
that has been em phasized by de
velopments during the war, in favor
of an American merchant marine
that will equal the best iu Eutope.
