Washington Inn 10 -The house of
representatives Is keeping up Its record
for businesslike piomptuess In dispos
ing of Important legislation and the
number of bills accumulating In the
semite that have passed the house has
already become appalling The house
has disposed of the new apportionment
by fixing a basis of lopresontntlon tlmt
will result In a membership of 5581 In
the house of representatives Iu the
congress to be elected In 1002
It is not expeeted that this bill will
provoke any discussion In the senate
when It reaches theie as It is purely a
house affair
The river nud harbor Improvement
bill Is also under way In the bouse and
a vote upon It will doubtless have been
taken before this reaches the eyes of
Its renders This bill carrying appro
priations for nearly 70000000 as a
Hubsldy to the nations commerce may
be amended in the senate either by re
ductions or Increases The Improve
ment of our rivers nnd harbors is be
coming a colossal work and few peo
plo renllzo thut as much money bus
been spent In that work during the
closing deende of the lust century as
was spent In all the years of our gov
ernments existence preceding that dee
nde It cannot bo doubted however
that the nation reaps benefits from the
improvements far In excess of expend
itures In the accommodation of rivers
nnd harbors to larger craft that carry
freight at reduced rates
While tb river and harbor Improve
ments are a benefit to the shipping of
all the world not a dollar of tuxes
being collected from shipping to help
bear the enormous expense of the Im
provements such Improvements nev
ertheless are lu tho most emphatic
sense a direct government aid to com
merce und industry- Iliver and harbor
Improvements by the government es
cape the odious word subsidy as n
characterization nnd hence the nld is
not offensive to mnny people who op
pose government aid when the name
applied to the latter takes the form of
expression of subsidy or of bounty
The only real difference iu the govern
ment expenditures for river and har
bor Improvements and those for the
building up of its own merchant ship
ping Is that the first benefit is the ship
ping of nil the world alike while the
benefits of the other are contiued only
to American ciatt
While the shipping bill is not under
consideration In either branch of con
gress at the present time it is never
theless one of the most absorbing top
ics in political and In private conversa
tions at the capital It occupies an
amount of space iu the dispatches sent
out from here to the newspapers of the
country fully equal to that enjoyed by
those measures that are actually under
discussion and lu process of pnssuge
Not only are members finding that the
country is deeply interested lu the
passage of the measure In question
but the direct and urgent requests
they are receiving from their constit
uents in favor of Its passage are hav
ing a most favorable effect The ene
mies of the bill concede that if it can be
brought to a vote In the senate Its
passage Is assured They are natural
ly therefore bending every energy nnd
straining e erv nerve In order to pre
vent a vote in the senate
Ever since the Id of Tnnuary the sen
ate has beeu almost absorbed iu its
discussion of the army reorganization
bill und uo mau Is able to predict the
end At the present writing a vote
has not bpon arranged for und al
though there are those who look for the
end during the week Just closing it
would not be nt all remarkable If it ex
tended well Into the next week If not
beyond Meanwhile as the filibusters
expect appropriations bills are ac
cumulating and all other business is
suspended in the senate until provision
Is made for the army necessary to en
able the president to carry out the law
iu our territorial possessions
One of the most significant things of
the times is the efforts that nre being
ninde by the nntisbipplng bill lobby
representing foreign shipping Inter
ests here to prove that there is not the
least bit of need for liny legislation
The lobby is getting frightened at the
awakened newspaper demand for the
linmedlute passage of the bill and the
fact has ut last been widely published
that new American ships meuns reduc
ed ocean freight rntes with direct bene
fits to our furmers und manufacturers
This truth once it sinks deeply Into
the public mind will result in an agl
tutlon so strong and so widespread
that congress will find It utterly Impos
sible to postpone further legislation
Meanwhile the opposition to the ship
ping bill is filling its organs with state
ments that there Is no shortage of
ocean tonnage that there are more
ships offering than there are cargoes
thut there bus been a steady diminu
tion of ocean freight rates all of these
statements being absolute aud bare
faced untruths There are not enough
ships offering for the cargoes that of
fer rntes are nbuormnlly high for
ocean transportation becnuse such a
vast aniouut of merchant tonnage Is
employed In carrying soldiers and
army equipment to distant pnrts of the
world cuiefly to South Africa
