OUR TRADE TO
Washington, July SI-Commercial
relations between the United
States and South America are in a
serious condition because of the war.
The lack of ahippinf haa caued a
decrease in the mount of manufac
tured goods exported to Argentina,
and the factories of that country are
unable to meet the demand. Some
f the factories require raw materials
that have formerly been obtained in
the United Statea and have been eom
pelled to shut down or greatly curtail
The entrance of the United States
into the war mekee the end of exten-
..v. .hiDine between this country ana
Aritentina. Beaides few ateamships
some sailing; ee-ela etill visit Argen
tina, according; to Consular advice.
;.ut they are o mall that navigation
is dangerou and they do not even
anpioimate t'i- demand for com
merce. The most needed article are
heavy iron eaating and coal.
Argentina bunine men are great
ly concerned because aorue of the
vessel arriving at Buenoe Aire have
rnme in ballast, eauned. they y. by
the fact that they were sent away
from the United State hurriedly to
get the cargoe of product In Argen
tina that re needed in thi country.
The United Statea ha a credit of
lrtO.000.000 in Bueno Aire which
ill be increased, according to thi
un formation, by f IO.nOO.OllO to be u--J
as a basia in exchange trade. It
is said thia situation require diplo
matic arrangement and that thia ia
cne of the affair to occupy the atten
tion of Ambassador Noan, who hn
Ju.t returned to Washington after
six months absence.
Material from Argentina Bought
by the United States and the other
nations at war with Germany include
beef, sheep, hide and wool, principal
Iv. According to official figures re
cently issued by the Argentine gov
ernment there are 80.000.000 sheep
in the republic as compared with 40.
ooo.ooo in 19H. the last year in
which figure are available. The wool
clip last year wa estimated MO.000
300 kilos valued at approximately
ir.O.OOO.OW. The total exports of
Argentina las year aggregated about
1175,000,000 and the imports $190,
100.000. There were 3.000,000 head
if cattle exported, principally to the
I nited State. England and France.
To meet the situation caused by
lock of hin th Arfentine rovern
.nent has decided to change several
M warship to merchant vessels and
'o buy more shipe wherever they can
found. This is another of the
problem with which Ambassador
Noan will deal.
Similar condition are reported
from Chile. Exports from the United
Statea of manufactured goods have
been virtually suspended eseept on a
limited number of article. Complaint
is nude that a large number of ves
sels from the United States arrive at
Chilean porta in ballast to bring ni
tiate to the United States. Urgent
request has been made to this country
to permit those vessels to carry car
goes of needed commodities.
