met In deb'ato last Friday evening in
tho old chapel. Tho question was:
"Resolved, That tlJ0 ship subsidy bill
is justified by the present condition of
Messrs. A. H. Maxwell, R. A. Har
rison and F. G. Kldd of the Dellans de
fended tho question, while C. 0. Carl
son, A. W. Taylor and E. C. Potts of
the Alpha Omegas had tho negative.
Mr. Maxwell opined iho debate. He
explained the meaning of tho question
and defended its constitutionality.
Mr. Potts characterized tho bill as
a gross steal and said It was only in
tended to enrich a few ship builders.
He argued that the bill was unconsti
tutional. Mr. Kidd of the Dellans contended
that the bill was not unconstitutional.
Ho said that It was justified because
(ho cost of construction of vessels in
the United States is 25 per cent great
er than It is in any other country.
Mr. Carlson declared that tho bill
was supported only by capitalists and
hose interested in tho shipbuilding
industry. He said it was opposed by
the other classes, such as farmers etc.,
and also by the democratic party and
a minority of the republican party.
On account of the absence of Mr.
Harrison, Mr. O'Connell was substi
tuted. His argument consisted most
ly of a defense of the subsidy because
jit would reduce freight rates.
Mr. Taylor contended that the cost
of operation was greater in America
and a subsidy was not tho be.it means
of remedying this disadvantage.
Mr. Maxwell closed tho debate by
summing up the argument.
Each speaker had fifteen minutes,
oxcept Mr. Maxwell, who opened tho
debate in a- twelve minute speech and
closed with a five minute speech.
The program was concluded by a
vocal solo by Mr. Doane. -
