tho President-elect and
his Secretary of .State will havn to solve
Is the matter of soothing Colombia for
the loss of Panama.
Tho Democrats in Congress have ng
ltatcd this matter for tho last two years
nil hnvo accused previous Iiepubli
can Administrations of tho blackest
crimes for their treatment of Colombia.
It is knnnu hero Hint tho now Colom
bian Minister hns been led to believe
through the Democratic protests that
nfter March I he may expect to receive
n gift of SKUKin.onn or so from tho United
State n compensation for tho Panama
Mr. Wilson is on record in protest
ngninsl the Uussinn treatment of the
.Jewish passport question. Ho has also
declined that ho would Rive his sanc
tion lo no Ireiuy which did not guarantee
equal treatment to all American cit
izens regardless of race or i-eligion by
Itussia. Ho has een stated in effect
thnt it would be better to lose our trade,
with Itussia, than accept treatment from
her contrary to tho rights of Ameri
Since Kussln has repeatedly declared
that no procure the United States can
exert on her will make her yield her right
to treat .Ions in Rijsin as she likes nnd i
Inasmuch as the Tnft Administration
has given up all hope of a now treaty
Mr Wilson will undoubtedly find himself
In an unpleasant situation as regards
relations with Itusin.
Nobody seems to know where the
President -elect stnnds ns to the foreign
policies that have been built up under
Republican Administrations. The cam
paign itself, having been waged chiefly
on domestic issues, shed little or no light
on this important question.
While the United states in nominally
at peace with all the world and enjoying j
friendly relations with all other nations, I
Mr. Wilson will tlml, say officials here, i
that the American ship of state is now
beset by munv hostile winds and eroi
currents. One man who has achieved
Internntionnl reputation in connectiiln
with foreign relations in speaking of tho
selection of a Democratic Secretary of
State said tlio other day:
Ortalnly there wa- never before such
an oiinortumly for any Vmcricaii ritien
In iilniilhli himself ns Secretary of State
ns Hill he presented during the next four
year", t onversely never n there greater
opportunity to make blunders of Inter
national -cope than will confront Mr. Wil
son's Secretary of Slate
That them will l some sort of change
in tho conduct of th foreign relations
of tho United Stats under Mr. Wilson
tho whole woild seems to expect. Com
ment in tho foreign press has clearly
indicuted the general belief abroad that
many of the present policies will Iw
abandoned or at least mateiially modified.
It Is known too that many Democrats
at home expect most radical changes in
tho conduct of foreign affairs, but their
belief is not shared by others who have
closely followed tho course of foreign
relations. Men who have had oflicul
r semi-oflicial lelutions with the State
Department in the last decade are morn
inclined to tho view that Mr. Wilson and
his Secretary of Statu will find it very
difficult to make any radical changes in the
fiollcies now in force, whatever may 1j
their personal desires.
As tho broadest !n its application and
bearing upon American interests, Mr.
Wilson will first have to decide whether
he is to indorse and maintain the Repub
lican (xilicy of giving Government aid
to American capital seeking investments
in foreign lands and American producers
Making markets abroad for American
goods. Though this policy has lieen
dubbed "dollar diplomacy and has been
bomWded again and again by the Demo
crats during their sixteen years in the
wilderness, it is doubted hero if a Demo
ciatio Secretary ot Stato or his chief,
Mr. Wilson, will venture oenly to de
nounce it after Mr, Wilson's assurances
to biibiness men that they need not fear
H is not lielieved hero that he will feel
lUo putting a stop to those activities on
tho part of consuls, ministers and even
ambassadors which the Taft Administra
tion says have brought millions and
millions of dollars worth of contracts into
the United States in tho last three years.
A more specific question under this
phase of foreign relations which Presi
dent Wilson will have to unswer concerns
tl.e proosed Chinese loan of $300,000,000,
For several months past the Government
of the United States has been cooperating
with five other great nations in support
ing nn International group of linkers,
ir eluding n number of Americans who
propose to llnance tho now republic
in tho lYv East President Wilson soon
niter his Inauguration will bo obliged
either lo commit hunsolf to this Govern
ment's activity in fuvor of capital or o!mi
lw must disavow it and tuko tho United
8t.it es out of the concert of six nations
ij tho Chinese loans. If the United States
withdraws from tho concert in tho loan
i! will lose Its seat, at the International
conference table on all Chinese ques
tions The entire effort of tho Taft Adminis
tration as regards China has been to place
there such American interests in tho way
of iKirticipating in loans us would entitle
tv? United States to bo heard in any dis
c'f sion of Chinese questions among tha

to gain for American capital a substantial
interest in Chinese development. While
"dollar diplomacy" in China and else

ministrations led up to such a policy und
made it possible for Secretary Knox to
develop It highly.

that lit1 hud had no intention of slight

in picking tho men whom he had named

upon the declarations of Mr Prender-
gust. pointed out that ho had made no
reference to New York in his statement
printed yesterday morninn. He had
said merely that there' seemed to bo no
sentiment for fusion with either of the
old artlos in tlui elections or 1813 and

"There is no way in which to defeat
