Foreign Relations Are Dealt
with by Taft in Detail in
Document Read at the
Opening of Session
TO BE DEPLORED
Communication Is the First
of Several to Be Written
That Will Take Subjects
Up One at Time.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 3. A note of
warning to Kuropean iwers which
by direct means continue to dlscrlm
innto against American trade: a
fctrong appeal to the congress to up
lift lh0 great foreign policies of
America above mere questions ot par
tisanship; a triumphant vindication
of the diplomacy of the administra
tion, which characterized as that of
"dollars versus bullets;" a master
ful pride in the enormous expansion
of American trade as a result of the
foreign policies of his administration,
and an earnest appeal lor Joint ac
ttnn by congress and the executive
to open new markets for American
industries there are the more strik
ing features of President Taft's fourth
message sent to congress todar. .
One Subject Treated.
The message is the first of a ser
ies or such communications which be
will make to congress in the early
dajs of the session, and deals entire
ly with, the foreign relations of the
United States. Beginning with the
usual reference to the existing good
relations with foreign rowers, the
president adds that these have been
strengthened by "a greater insistence
jipon justice to American citizens, or
Interests, wherever it may have been
denied, and a stronger emphasis of
the need or mutuality in commercial
and ether relations."
For the first time in its historj
p-ivs the president the state depart
ment has obtained substantially tho
most favored nation treatment from
all of tho countries of the world.
' Therefore, he says, that it is only
natural that competitive countrie"
should view with some concern the
' e-cpanslon ot our commerce. Hence
the warning. "If Ir some instances
the incisures taken by them to meet
it are not entirely equitable, a rem
edy should be found "
To this end. the president strong
ly recommends the enactment of the
bill recommended by Secretary Knox
iast December, permlttlJg the gov
ernment, instead of imposing the full
maximum rates of duty against dls
criminating countries, to apply a
graduated scale of duties, up to that
maximum of 23 per cent.
"Flat tariffs are out ot date," ray
the president. "Nations no longer
accord equal tariff treatment to a'l
other nations. Irrespective of the
treatment from them received. It Is
very necessary that the American
government should be equipped with
weapons of negotiation and adapted
to modern economic conditions"
sa DeDartment Bettered.
Th state department: "an archaic
and Inadequate machine, at the be-
dnnlnc of this administration
president says, has become a new or

reaus and experts dealing with every
phase ot American trade and diplom
acy. Holding that the espence of this
recognized service Is found In tho
merit system, which President Cleve
land Is credited with having Intro
duced. President Taft makes a strona
appeal to congress t omake this ma
chine permanent, by giving the force
of statutory law to the executive or

motion in the diplomatic and consular

pointed, five were oy promotion freu

ministers appointed, eleven
Amotions; and that In the cowutar
service no less than oo per cent 61
tbTconsuIs appointed by him were
from the southern states.
On Dollar Diplomacy.
-The diplomacy ot the present ao
nlnliuatloa has sought to respond

course," say President Taft. Tn
Sy has been characterised as sub
irttutlne dollars tor bullets. It U one
