The Question of Subsidizing a Regu

WASHINGTON , Miy" 12. [ Special Tele
gram. ] The friend. ' ? of- the mall subsidy
clause In the poi'toflicc appropriation bill are
getting very much In earnest , and fear that
it Is going to bo defeated in the house , where
th o bill was sent several days ago. The sub
sidy question Is one of simply giving a bonus
of SSOO.OOO to a line ol American steamers to
carry the malls to and from Central and
South American countries that much annu
ally. At present the pay for cairylngtho
malls between this and those countries Is so
small that it scarcely' pays for the trouble ,
and docs not In the slightest degree encour
age moro trips and regularity of tlio service.
It is contended that the subsidy will estab
lish u regular line of ships , making at least
fortnightly trips between New York and
New Orleans and the countries south , nnd
that such a line will at once open up our ex
ports and create a largo trade , winch will
soon bring In moro'protits ' than the subsidy
outlay. The matter of having prompt and
rapid malt facilitos Is not the primary object
by any means. It is n question of opening
ui > trade. Tlio house Is more eharry about
subsidies than the senate and the fate of the
senate amendment Is uncertain.

that something will bo evolved which will
