Commerce Departaeat Head Believes
the Americas Gtizea Can Com-
pete Witioat Protection.
Secretary of Commerce Ttedfield was
tie principal speaker at the mcctinu of
the American Manufacturers Association
at the Willard yesterday. He said that
the tariff was a matter of small im
portance to the manufacturer of any
class -of goods, and declared that he had
not even enough Interest as a manufac
turer to look to see what the tariff is
on the goods he produces.
He further advocated "commercial at
taches" for the United States govern
ment in European countries, who would
watch the commercial interests of the
United States and work much the same
as tho military and naval attaches work.
"Would It not be possible," he said, "to
add what we may call a commercial at
tache in. say, six or seven of our em
bassies? Let us suppose that this com
mercial attache was a well-equipped man
of business, who had no duties save 'that
of studying carefully industrial and com
mercial subjects in the country to which
he was accredited. He would be free
from the local and office duties of the
consul. He would not be limited to any
locality. His scope would be as wide as
that of the nation in which he resided.
He would have nothing to do with diplo
matic affairs. His service would be con
tinuous and only that of studying care
fully the commercial development and
progress of the people among whom he
lived. He could be an efficient factor in
making clear to them American industrial-
and commercial interests, and in
likewise making plain to tts the similar
Interests In his foreign field.
"I have not been able, further than I
have said, to work out the details of this
suggestion, for mere lack of time. It Is
possible that further thought may either
modify" the Ideas, in whole or part, or
require their radical change. I am now
simply thinking out loud, as It were,
with a view to getting as a final result
that which shall bring a closer and more
friendly tie between the great commer
cial and Industrial nations of the world,
and make their union in these great
spheres more sympathetic and effective."
About 250 delegates, from all over tho
country, are attending the convention.
The sessions end today, with the elec
tion of officers. A report on the tariff
will be. submitted.
W. JL Steuart, chief statistician of
the Bureau of the Census, told, of the
manner of gathering cotton statistics,
and X. E. Douty, of New York, spoke
on "The Value of Accurate Testing in
the Cotton Industry."
