The admirals evidence was very Long and interesting. He gave his opinion that we could have saved at least forty million dollars at the outset of the War if we bad a Fleet of steamships like that used in the trans Atlan Lio lines which might have been turned into a blockading Fleet. He thought that to encourage american steamship lines subsidies were seeded and they might be in the form of american postage or of direct payment for the trip. The Admiral favored Ench Aid to mail steamers and a drawback on the material used in ship building equal to the amount of duty on them. He is opposed to a. Free Reguera Tion of foreign built ships As Uteri y do Watrac live of our Mech Adiol and building interests. He also believed it would be be Elisary to Al a Low of the Purchase of some Twenty it four steamships and their registry for the Pur pose of being at once used in the establish ment of mail steamship lines. With such an acquisition and the Piro tettion accorded by subsidies and drawbacks the admirals opinion was that within two or three years the carrying Trade a would revive. He thought that it was of tha utmost importance that the United states should have a steam Marine the vessels in Wiloh could be transferred at once into cruisers if the occasion Etc tired. He further gave it As his opinion that thirty vessels of the class described above would be of More service in Case of War than our combined Navy As at present constituted.
