PANAMA TOLLS. [Newspaper Article] — Wangaratta Chronicle — 11 February 1914
PANAMA TOLLS. President Wilson has introduced a measure into Congress for the repeal of the measure passed last year ex empting American coast wise ship ping from tolls in the Panama canal, Dejspite the fact that the exemption was a plank in the Democratic plat form, it is not expected that there will he any dirticulty in carrying the amended bill through the Lower I louse. Itpra;entative Adamson (chairman of the Foreign Commerce Committed) aenerts that the free tolls provision was inuerted in the Democratic plat form without the knowledge of the majority of the Resolutions Commit tee of the party. In consequence of this discovery, he says that the way in now clear for a Congressional de bate upon the repeal of the measure, "'The subsidy was not a cardinal plank in any Democratic platform," declare other members of the Com merce Committee. Therefore there is not likely 'to be any real resistance to the President's programme,
