Coastwise traffic on either
coast is not competitive with other forms of transport. It is more or less a condition by itself. It is my intention at the proper time to send this bill to a committee, where matters of the kind can be discussed. If it is considered in committee that any good purpose would be served by regulating shipping along either coast, a clause of that kind could be -inserted.
