America Without a Merchant Marine
There was u time when Yankee pack
ets carried American wares around the
world, but we have abandoned our ships,
and they have all but vanished from the
seas. The federal band has been busy
building break waters, scooping out
harbors, and deepening inland water
ways. Now we are cutting a channel

America today exceeds by more than
one hundred per cent the total exports
from all nations combined.
Conscious of our strength, and in the
presence of bewildering achievements
at home, we find it difficult to realize
that our dominion pauses at the shores
of our seas. The decline of our mer
chant marine from the days of great
achievement is not the result of any
decrease in our national vigor. The
energy und genius of the American
people have simply been withdrawn
from the sea. Wo have expended our
ingenuity and strength and riches in

a monopoly of the raw material with
out which Europe could not retain its
place as an industrial continent, be be
sieged by foreign craft forever?
The nations of the world must come
to us for the cotton as surely as Israel
in the days of acient famine went to
Egypt for corn.
The South is also becoming a manu

Gulf powers last year only 32t! Ameri

In the traffic in cotton goods foreign

Wise talks by
the office boy
- M :
Some one sent the boss a bunch of books en
titled, "Rusiness Nuggets," "The Road to Suc
cess," "The Man in Front" and such like.l think
he's been looking them over, for when I came to
work this morning he handed me this: Every
thing comes to those that wait, and the lazy boy
waits to greet it; but success comes on with a
rapid gait, to the man that goes to meet it." I
had to laugh, because he's the boss; but to tell
you the honest truth, a boy on this job doesn't
get any chance to apply thess wise hunches. Actually it's no credit for
a fellow to beindustrioua here, because he cant be anything else. If he
lets up for an hour he wouldn't get his orders out and then there would
be people coming in and saying lots of fierce things, but nothing about
"business success" or the "lazy boy waits to greet it."

ential tariff in our favor, hut not even
this advantage of fifteen per cent un
der the customs charges which our
rivals must pay gives us Ihe trade.
Last year the exports of cotton goods
to the Philippines were valued at $8,
011,141, of which the United States
supplied but ."? ) 1 , 7-1 2 worth. Great
Rritian has been able to secure the
great part of this trade. Altogether
our competitors sold to our Asiatic is
lands nearly twice the value of cotton
goods that the United States exported
to the United Knight and continental
Europe combined. And the continued
paradox and irony of such defeats is that
America supplies the raw material.
A few days ago there were posted in
conspicuous places in the above quar
ries a number of red placards which
read a9 follows "Take Notice; Any
person employed in this quarry who
brings any intoxicating liquors any
where on these works will be immedi
ately discharged. This will be en
So it will be seen that even in public
works there is getting to be no place
for the boozer. And when you stop to
think that in a big plant like a quarry,
one can put a dozen on the "hummer,"
it is not strange that as a business prop
osition, booze cannot be tolerated.
At any rate this is the estimate Mr.
VanCourtand Mr. Lundberg put on it.
