RELATIONS ARE NOW FRIENDLY
The State Department last night made
public a final summary "' om of the
achievements of "dollar diplomacy" dur
ing Secretary Knox's term of office, n
answer to the complaints of prominent
Democrats that the machinery o: the
government had been lmproper'y ured
for business enterprises, and that the
Knox policies had cost the Urltcd State
the friendship of Latin America.
Particular emphasis is laid by depart
ment officials upon the fact that during
the Knox policy of "friendship with
honor," the relations of the United States
with Latin America have jrrswn trore
friendly. The department points to the
increased export trade to Latin-American
countries as evidence of the better re
lations with the United States
During the ears 1903 to 1312. American
exports to Chile Increased by HO per cent.
Yet. during that period, the State De
partment succeeded in collecting the
Alsop claim, which had been dragging
along for thirty ears, and once nearly
precipitated a war between the United
States and Chile.
Investigations made at the direction
ot. Secretary Knox Indicate that after
the Panama Canal is open, the American
manufacturer can sell at least "KO.OOO.lOO

GIVES LAST CONCERT
Selections from BeethoTen and Scans
mann, and Which Are Little
Known, Are Played.
The last concert of the Flonialey Quar
tet was given before a large and dis
criminating mutlcal audience yesterday
afternoon at the Masonic Temple audi
torium For this performance two of
the least known string quartets Wire
chosen. Beethoven's Quartet In C Minor,
op IS. No i. and Schumann's Quartet
In A major, op 41. No 3
The B'ethoven Quartet In C miner,
written In lTST-lSOO. during his so-called
"first period" or "formative period." was
one of a group of six quartets dedicated
to Prince Lobkowitz. The fourth is
probably the most brilliant and dashing
of the set- The first movement (allegro
ma non tanto) illustrates particularly
the composer s unfailing freshness cf
rthym and fertility In Incidentals
The second (schcrxo). introduced bv
Beethoven instead of an andante move
ment, and ever played rather slowly by
the Flonzales, shows his Intensity In
portralng subjective emotion. The third
movement (menuetto) Illustrates another
well-known quality -of Beethov en the
elaboration of the connecting links be
tween separate movements. For exam
ple, the connection between the trio and
minuet The allegro brings with it great
rapidity of movement, revealing at the
same time unlocked for melodies. The
most beautiful, brilliant, spirited, and
powerful of all the movements, it is a
fitting climax to the whole.
Quartet ovr Appreciated.
An appreciation of Beethoven's early
string quartets was not found. It is said,
until a half centur after his death.
When writing to a friend about the C
minor quartet, he said "Whole hours of
reflection are comprised in it. and I made
three or four trials before I could bring
it to its present shape " Rossini, it Is
said, found In these quartets "many
sublime moments and many sick quar
ter hours." but when played by the
Flonzaleys we mest fervently reverse the
sa ing and claim there are many sublime
The second number of this delightful
programme was Schumann's quartet in A
major, written about 154", and is one of
onl three of his string quartets which
have become known.
One feels a deep religious undercurrent
throughout the composition, the Andante
expressivo. being a beautiful song, rather
plaintive, showing the beautifully bal
anced relations between the strings.
The Assal agitato makes on feel the
frantic passion of some one pleading
The 'cello carries the melody In this
movement- The adagic molto Is a beau
tifully broad theme, extremely religious.
The finale expresses religious resignation,
leaving the hearer with a feeling of
great exultation. It Is a fitting, signifi
cant, and worthy ending to the whole.
The Flonzaleys play with such a wealth
of fine graduations of shading and color
that the listener feels the power of the
composition when interpreted by them
Their technique Is never falling and their
tone is admirable.
