NO MORE SHIPPING TrvUST.
One of the corporate bogees most feared and de
nounced in pre-war times was the so-called "shipping
trust", the International Marine company, organized by
J. P. Morgan. It is quite true that this corporation dirt,
for a considerable time, aim at monopolizing the Atlantic
trade, and succeed in controlling a considerable part of
it. There was strong objection to it not merely because
of its monopolistic efforts, but because much of the stock
The monopoly menace vanished when the United
States government went into the ship-building and ship-
operating game, and assumed charge of trans-Atlantic
shipping. The huge new tonnage purchased, built and
contracted for made the "trust's" 1,200,000 tons look
rather small. -
Now the situation is further cleared up by the sale
of nearly all of the company's holdings to a British con
cern. The sale eliminates all British interest in American
shipping. There will be left only ships of American reg
istry, under American ownership, to compete with foreign-registered
ships under foreign ownership.
Thus we have a -genuinely American merchant fleet
which is, or soon will be, sufficient to meet all American
transportation demands, and which under the conditions
enforced by the government will be retired to observe
the principles of fair play and honest competition.
Thus the seas, already freed from military menace,
arc being made, in one economic sense, freer than they
have been for many years.
Austria is to be let off with an indemnity of only a
billion dollars. Which would be a cinch for her; if she
had the billion.
Whereas, among thtise who were de- ,

It seems not all unlikely that most of the Germans
would rejoice to see their former kaiser on his throne
What can be done with a nation which persists in
worshipping the golden calf of royalty even while pro
fessing faith and observing the forms of democracy? The
first step, obviously, for the Allies is to make a thorough! upon her and the latter having done

idols, they may in time attain a self-respecting political
faith that will enable them to understand modern civil
ization and make them safe to live with.
Whereas, it i the firm conviction
