Urond Dct clo jitaotit of the Bureau's

to Create a Hotter Understanding.

pointed by Secretary Olney Thursday
morning, consisting of tho Mexican,
Brazilian, Venezuelan and Guatemalan
ministers and the Costa Rlcan charge
d'affaires. Scnor Romero presided over
tho session which was, held in tho. par
lor of tho bureau building, and while
tho proceedings wore in the naturo of
a preliminary determination of the
future work of tho organization, it is
understood that preparations arc un
der consideration for a broad develop
ment of the bureaus of commercial use
fulness, involving a much closer union
of tho interests of all tho re
publics on this continent Al
though tho general direction of
the bureau1 is, in all probability, to
bo continued under tho secretary of
state, the United States advancing the
money for its support and being subse
quently reimbursed by tho other par
ties to the agreement, hereafter tho
other republics will exercise active
control over their interests in the mat
ter. Tho contemplated accession
of Chili, although that country
has nbstalncd from participating
in the enterprise sinco its conception,
and tho reconsideration of tho deter
mination by Mexico and Argentina to
withdraw from tho arrangements
which are now announced, have been
secured through the elforts of Secrctery
Olney, who is said to have confidence
in creating a bettor understanding
among the American nations than could
have boeu deemed possible heretofore.
The committee which mot Thursday
will hold other meetings next week
and report to a confetenco of all tho
republics as soon as possible. In addi
tion to the chairman, its members are
