The Ship Subsidy Bill

AS PASSED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. THE following is the text of the Ship Subsidy bill as passed by the House of Representatives March 1, 1907, by a vote of 15.5 to 144, after there had been eliminated the Senate provisions for payments to Pacific steamship lines controlled by Harriman or Hill railway interests. In the struggle over the bill fifty-two Republicans voted with the Democrats in opposition on the first roll call. On the motion of Mr. Williams to lay the motion to reconsider on the table fifty Republicans voted with the Democrats. On the vote to adopt a substitute there were forty-three Republican opponents and on its final passage thera were forty-one. The bill as amended went back to the Senate, where it failed to pass in the closing hours of the session on account of the determined filibustering of its opponents. The original bill of this session, which contained the subsidies stricken out by the House of Representatives, passed the Senate February 14, 1906:

An Act to promote the national defense, to create a naval reserve, to establish American ocean mail lines to foreign markets and to promote commerce.
