The following is an extract from the
Republican National Platform of l!XiO:
"Our present dependence upon for-
marine to the extension of our commer
cial trade and the strengthening of our
power UH)ii the sea invites the imme

development will be one-sided and un
satisfactory so long as the remarkable
growth of our island industries remain
unaccompanied by progress on the sea.

fore favor legislation which will en
courage and build up the American
merchant marine, and we cordially ap
prove the legislation of the last con
gresi which created the merc hant ma
rine commission to investigate and re
port upon this subject.
A navy powerful enough to defend
the United States against any attack,
to uphold the Monroe doctrine, and
watch over our commerce, is essential
for the safety and the welfare of the
American people. To maintain such a
navy is the fixed policy of the Republi
can party
which at the beginning may be involved,
will be ou"set later by more than
equivalent gains.
"The expense is as nothing compared
to the advantage to be achieved. The
re-establishment of our merchant ma
rine involves, in a large measure, our
continued industrial progress and the
extension of our commercial triumphs.
I am satisfied the judgement of the
country favors the policy of aid to our
merchant marine, which will broaden
our commerce and markets and upbuild
our sea-carrying capacity for the pro-
ducts of t agriculture and manufacture,

ask your earnest consideration of the
report with which the merchant marine
commission has followed its lomr and

President Koosevelt in his annual
message, December S, P.IOK, said:
"I again recommend the extension of
the ocean mail act of 1891 so that the
satisfactory American ocean mail lines
to South America, Asia, the Philippines,
and Australasia may be established.
The creation of such steamship lines
should be the natural corollary of the
voyage of the battle fleet. It should
precede the opening of the Panama
Canal. Kven under favorable condi
tions several years must elapse before
such lines can be put into operation.
Accordingly I urge that the congress
act promptly where foresight already
shows that' action sooner or later will
