Administration! Shipping Bill.
Supplementing his presentation of his argu
ment for Increasing the national defenses, Mr.
Wilson recurred In his address to congress to the
necessity of an American merchant marine, urg
ing that the shipping bill defeated in the Sixty-
third congress be panned. This has brought all
the arguments in favor, of that measure under
the new light of changed conditions. When the
war in Europe altered all the routine of ocean
traffic, the need for tonnage Under the Ameri
can flag seemed imperatively urgent. A great
deal of talk was indulged in at that time about
our opportunity to secure and hold control In
the shipping trade of the world, and of opening
new markets for our surplus products, and other
advantages that would accrue from the cessation
of European commerce and Industry. A year of
debate has brought a better understanding of
what will be required, it we are to obtain and
hold a commanding position in the world's trade.
One of the principal changes has been in the
circumstances that surround th ship building
Industry of the United States. From comparative
stagnation, the ship yards bar been brought to
an activity that is taxing their full capacity.
Within the year American ship yards have
launched tonnage equal to ths amount of one
fourth the entire American tonnage at the be
ginning of the war, and contracts for mora than
this amount are already listed. It has been stated
quite recently on good authority that American
shipbuilders have contracts for three years' work
on hand. If private capital Is going Into shipping
at this rate, what need is there tor ths govern
ment to venture Into the business? If the gov
ernment were to take on the obligations Implied
in the defeated shipping bill, where would It
place Its contracts for the immediate construc
tion of shlpst .'
Mr. Wilson answers this by the suggestion
that the "last obstacle" be removed, which means
that forelgn-butlt ships be admitted to American
registry with all th privileges of home-built
ships la other words, the coastwise trad is to
be opened to forelgn-butlt ships, and the Amer
ican satlor to be driven from his last bold on
the water. That would b th crowning triumph
for th present administration's onslaught on
Nebraska's Compensation Law.
Several complaints have been registered of
late against the Nebraska workmen's compensa
tion law, chiefly as to the amount that is fixed
for weekly relief. In every Instance It Is as
serted that this la less than what might bars
been recovered, had a suit for damages been
tried. Perhaps this Is true, but one of the pur
poses of the law was to do away with the suits
as far as possible, to make the return to the
victim of Industrial accident certain, and
speedy. The law Is not perfect, and la subject
to amendment, but It does not deserve to be
attacked as entirely useless. It Is a stsrt in the
right direction, made after overcoming the op
position of influential persons Interested in pre
venting Its passage. These influences succeeded
in retarding its operation for two years, while
It waa being voted on at a referendum election,
and are now aligned in the effort to bring about
Its repeal. Experience will determine in what
particulars the law may need mending, but ef
forts to repeal it outright and go back to the
old system of damage suits will meet with
Sounds a Hopeful Note.
El Mercurlo, published at Valparaiso, Chile,
sounds a note that is both hopeful and helpful,
in commenting on the message of President Wil
son. The doctrine of Pan-Americanism has
taken a 'deeper root in South America than Is
generally understood In this country. The lack
of closer community between the countries of
the American continents has arisen from the one
cause. It is not that the identity of interest has
not been recognized, but because the develop
ment of the material interests of the several
countries has been on a scale greater than either
of them could finance for itself. This baa neces
sitated the borrowing of capital abroad, and the
great bulk of this capital has come from Europe,
and most of It bas been furnished by the nations
now at war. The United States has shared In
this experience, along with Chile, Brasll, Argen
tine, and the other progressive South American
countries. Each bas felt the desirability of
closer relations, but the impulse in this direc
tion bas been repressed by the relations estab
lished with Europe through the exploitation of
the resources of the several nations by European
capitalists. Conditions are now such as to rcleas
much of this pressure, and the result must be
more intimate communication between the
Without any stimulus from government
sources, ship building in the United States baa
grown from twelve ocean-going merchant ships
In July, 1114. to 180 such vessels at the present
time. Their tonnage exceeds one-fourth of the
entire American-built tonnage at the beginning
of the war. No development in recent times has
shown more encouraging speed than the busi
ness crowding into shipyards.
The "pay-as-you-go" principle urgd by th
administration in connection with preparedness
plans ! practical in small concern. , . In large
projects It is an embarrassing handicap. Prac
tically all the great constructive works of our
time could not have been carried out by other
resources than borrowed money. In great
things debt spells enterprise.
In the ten months ending with October, ex
ports of food products from this country were
double the quantity sent abroad during the cor
responding period of 1914. The cheerful readl
Bess shown in sharing our good fortune with the
suffering old world radiates happiness on both
sides of the AUantic.

Case for the Navy
. from OoUleT'a. .
JCBT sbont thirty years eso th first Cleveland att
ttilnietratton was confronted by a situation resemb
ling th one that now opooeaa th administration
of Mr. Wilson. . Mr. Cleveland was th least tmag
matlv and eaclUbte of men. He held In the grett
detestation ths kind of Vainglorious wutlylng, called
mllttariem, which has brought tumult on th world.
But, besides being conservative, he waa a man of
watchful intelllirenc. He had no Illusions about th
kind of world ho was living In. He did not pretend
to believe thlnrs that he knew wer not true. With
all hla inclination toward peace, he waa the last man
on earth who would think of going unarmed In an
armed camp. ' Id ons of his messages he wrote:,
"Ths nation that cannot reetat acfreeaion Is eoii
etsntiy exposed to it. Its foreign policy Is of neces
sity week, and Its negotiations are conducted with die
advantage because It Is not in condition to enforce
terms dictated by Its sens of right and Justice."

en their own motion, without much urging fey press
or public, they ' set to work boldly and, above all,
promptly t create a fore that could offer stern rn
sfatanc to any attempt to despoil our shores. The
fruit bf this courageous pollr y of real leadership was
the navy, which, fourteen1 jeers later, scattered the
fragment of the Spanish fleet along ths southern
rosst of Cuba for thirty miles, with no materiel dam
age to our ships and with th loss ef only- one life.
Sank th Veneely In Manila, bay, and wss strong enough
to treat with open contempt th Impudence of the
Prussian admiral: Crcat arid Intelligent work was

war, but of a national policy 6f defense that events

and of respect for th people of other" countries, -s,
Of course It would be rldlculou to attempt a direct
comparlson'of the navy which the Cleveland admlhis.
t rat Ion scrapped with the navy of today. The navy
of 1M wss obsolete, badly planned, badly armed,
badly manned, and, on the whole, badly eemmanded.
Th public has cans to believe that within t limita
tions aet by congress the present navy Is a thoroughly
sound fighting force. Perhaps w have doted too much
on this favorite of the. American people. The navy
Is Undoubtedly . undermanned and underofflcered.
Moreover, It Is teaaonabl to believe that its relative
power la not as great ss It was st the beginning bf
the European war.' It stands t reason that th forces
of th nation engaged have gained ' knowledge of
maneuvers and marksmanship, warlike ruses any!
makeshifts, which could only he developed by th
practice of actual warfare. But accepting tHe opinion
