WASHINGTON, Sept. 15. Declar
ing Hint tho establishment of govern
ment owned steamship lines Is & di

and would mean tho ultlmnto destruc

genuity and wisdom ot a deserving
class ot citizens have built up ami
maintained In tho carrying trade oC
tho United States, seven members ot
tho committee on tho merchant ma
rine Introduced today in tho house a
minority report on tho merchant ma
rine 1)111 which was framed to mcov
conditions arising out ot tho Euro
pean war. Tho report la signed by
five republicans, Green, Mass.; Hinds,
Maine; Curry. California; Edmonds,
Pennsylvania; Parker, New York, and
two democrats, Saunders, Virginia,
and Thachcr, Massachusetts.
Possibly tho most dangerous effee',
of tho measure, tho report declares,
would be tho result its enactment
might have on tho position of neu
trality on tho part ot the United
States In the war.
The bill, continues tho report.
would. If it becamo law. stifle all
commercial enterprise and turn over
to tho government itself the power
to crcato a merchant marine, which
power could. It Is asserted, bo ex
tended and enlarged so long as money
remained in the treasury and as mucn
longer as congress should provide by
taxation to replenish the treasury.
"The purchase ot foreign steam
ships now used in the foreign trade."

and no evidence has been produced
that thcro aro not now mora vessel

to the various markets ot the world,
and it Is distinctly claimed that thcro

Therefore, thcro can bo no emer

Granting that the situation seemed
to warrant the introduction ot a bill
to meet tho emergency due to the war
the report says, "the bill Itself goes
much further than the lino of emer
gency and opens up the whole ques
tion of tho development of an Amer
ican merchant marine by proposing
an absolulo scheme of government
ownership involving an expenditure
or many millions of dollars, which
cannot fall to demand an Increase, of
taxes which would have to bo boruo
by the American people."
Of Doubtful Expediency
Tho signers ot the report charge
that tho bill did not receive suffi
cient consideration at the hands of
tho committee and says that more ex
tended hearings might have revealed
some definite practicable system of
action. Alluding to tho vital need
of an American merchant marine, tlw
"The mere buying of such vessel
of foreign constructions as might bo
purchased while the foreign war con
tinues would be but the first step In
a new and untried venture an ex
IKtrlmcnt of doubtful exjiedlency
which should not bo undertaken
without serious consideration.
"Tho establishment of steamship
lines is a business proposition. It is
not a political undertaking and
should not bo a political proposition.

JOINT MISTAKE OF
PETItOGHAD, via London. Sept.
13, 5:27 a. m. Colonel Shumsky,
the military correspondent ot tho
Dourso Gazetto In a long criticism ot
what he terms the Joint mistake ot
Austro-Gcrman strategy, the effects
of which, he says, aro now being re
vealed on both fronts, considers that
the Gallclan victory wa.i obtained at
an opportune moment and that tho
transfer ot German troops from the
western to tho eastern frontiers hai
now attained Its object.
He says It Is fair to concludo that
tho Russian successes on tho Aus
trian frontier and tho Russian move1
ment In East Prussia were the pri
mary causes ot tho victories of the
Anglo-French army. The shocks ad
ministered by tho Russian army, he
declares, havo been so powerful that
the Germans were obliged to recall a
portion of their troops from France,
thereby facilitating the French task.
