The admision of articles of food or of raw
material, in itself constitutes an incident of
protection to mechanical production and
must also tend to stimulate greatly the de
mand for coal with which our country
abounds. Such are in great part the obsta
cles to a fair participation of the United
States in the markets of South America. It
is, however, in the want of facilities of com
mercial intercourse and correspondence with
foreign countries on this continent that we
find the chief obstacle to the great object
stated. It is only while we compare the facilli
ties for this purpose furnished by other na
tionswith the almosteptire absence of similar
accommodations on the part of our own gov
ernment that we realise the true cause of
this restricted intercourse. On turning to
authentic sources we find the amounts ap
plied by those nations, who enjoy the greatest
part of the tropical trade, to stand in com
parison with our own somewhat as follows:
The English subsidy for Ceptral,
South American and West India
Royal Mall Steamship Company,
and Pacific Steamship Company $930,000
The French subsidy for the Com
pagnie Menageries Maritimes, et
Compagnie Urande Trans-At
lantique ......... ............ 1,449,451
There are, besides, many lines of German
steamers running to the same ports with
those of France and England. The sole ap
propriation made by the government of the
United States at present to the same service
consists in an assignment to ocean steamers
of a part of the sea postage, which they carry
themselves. The postal receipts last year
from the lines trading to South America,
Australia, Japan and China was $107,368 55.
"The cost of sea conveyances," or subven
tion, was $47,840 49. The South American
service was last year kept separate from
that of Australia and China.
It produced to this government $9 ,971, of
which this government returned to the car
riers $52,101, leaving to the Postoflice Depart
ment a not profit of $44,870 42. It certainly
evinces admirable enterprise on the part of
those American steamers to meet the compe
tition of a subsidized foreign service and to
pay their own government a profit upon a
service which cost the government nothing
and for the performance of which it would
have otherwise been compelled to pay foreign
T"he late President of the United States
took a more liberal and sagacious view of the
public duty. In his annual message of 1875
he said:
"The United States are now paying over
$100,000,000 per annum for freights and pas
sengers on foreign ships. * * * It is to be
regretted that this disparity in the carrying
trade exists, and to correct it I would be will
ing to see a great departure from the usual
course of government in supporting what
may be usually termed private enterprise. 1
would not suggest as a remedy direct subsidy
to American steam shipping, but I would
suggest the direct offer of compensation for
carrying the mail between Atlantic seaboard
cities and the continent in American owned
and American built steamers, and would ex
tend this liberality to vessels carrying the
malls to South American States and to Cen
tral America and Mexico, and would pursue
the same policy from our Pacific seaports to
foreign seaports on the Pacific."
The President also esaid in another message
of 1875:
"Thn anhadIlv f alfno0n nrM. annmm fnr
carrying the mails Tetween New York and
Rio de Janeiro having ceased on the 80th of
September last, we are without direct mail
facilities with the South American States.
This is greatly to be regretted, and I do not
hesitate to recommend the authorization of a
renewal of that contract, and also that the
service may be increased from monthly to
semi-monthly. The commercial advantages
to be gained by a direct line of American
steamers to the South American States will be
far beyond the expense of the same."
In like manner the Chamber of Commerce
of New York, in a spirit of enlarged and im
partial wisdom, has said:
"In our last report we invited attention to the
importance of developing our trade with our
natural neighbors and allies, the South Ameri
can States. The Chamber has even favored re
strictions in trade. It would not now sup
port a subsidy to any steam line to Europe.
It is not necessary. But it has repeatedly
expressed its belief that only by government
aid in the beginning can such communica
tions with the Southern Continent be estab
lished as will ensure the opening of their
markets to American produce, in which the
West as producers, and the North and South
as carriers and consumers, are alike interest
ed. In this commerce is the future hope of
New York."
It is thus made obvious that with a more
moderate rate of reciprocal duties between
the European nations and the Southern
American States, and with the peculiar if not
exclusive facilities of intercourse with those
States and Colonies enjoyed by European
nations, they must continue to command the
great proportion of the trade already stated.
In this fact we find an explanation of the in
significant trade enjoyed by the United States
with the Empire of Brazil. Our minister to
that country reports twenty lines of European
steamers in its ports without one from the
United States, and says that much of the
freights, passengers and correspondence be
tween the United States and Brazil has to
pass through a British port in its transit.
Much opposition has been recently made
against giving national aid to foreign
postal service. Statesmen who have sub
mitted without remonstrance to gifts of pub
lie lands and to loans of public money, to
be employed in railroad construction and re
imbursed by military and postal services to
the government, seem embarrassed by the
proposal to consummate the postal service
by extending the transportation of the mail
upon the sea. It may possibly puzzle such
casuiste to explain how, under a simple
power to "establish postoffices and posts
routes," Congress has acquired any right to
pay for carrying the mails at all.
We may assume that a postal service was
so indispensable to the commercial and social
Intercourse of the people that the service
was "necessary and proper" to exercise this
granted power. Upon this reasoning the au
thority and the obligation is not limited to the
internal intercourse of the country, but may
be extended wherever that intercourse may
require. The deck of an American vessel is
the territory of the nation, and the national
lurisdiction is as clear over any contract of
service on the deck of that vessel, as on the
back of any mule bestrode by any mail rider
on the staked plain of Texas.
The obligation of Congress is not restricted
to land routes, nor does it cease at the sea
coast. This obligation to carry the mail on
the land cost the American people last year
$33,263,459. This was nearly five millions
more than the government derived from the
poetages. With what justice can the govern
ment expend so large a sum in the imperfect
performance of this obligation, by failing to
deliver those missives at their ultimate des
tination ? There is a great international
postal union to which almost all civilized na
ilons are parties. How humiliating for the
United States to declare that it would deliver
0o mail that does not bear its own expenses !
.o better example can be given of the false
,oonomy of such doctrines than that the gov
)rnment, with a laudable liberality, now fur
ilshes a double daily mail between all the
treat cities of the East and West to New
)rleans, on a time, varying with the respec
ive localities, of from 32 to 62 hours.
Our Minister to Venezuela mentions the
act that American flour is carried to England
n be baked, and is then brought back to this
montinent to the consumer. An American
aptain, trading for years on the Amazon
pier, constantly transported American flour
rought over from England. The city of New
)rleans in 1876 received nearly five millions
i dollars In coffee from Brail, without hav
ag in the same time cleared a single vessel
or the port of Rio de Janeiro.

lngtime ofbolt s and a hal days; from
Chlcgroto Aspinwall, via New Yorlk would
be about 38600 miles by rail and steamer,
with a running time of eight and a half days.
Indeed, the adoption of a steam postal ser
vice from New Orlans to Aspinwall would
not only effect a great saving of cost to the
government, but would save a day and a half
mail time between Aspinwall and New York
over the present connection between those
two points.
It has by no means escaped the observation
of the Western and Southwestern people, that
by denying them this connection, and forcing
them to make this detour, their trade and
correspondence with South America is sub
jected to a virtual supervision by the Eastern
Atlantic dies, and they are thus compelled
to pay Eastern Atlantico railroads, canals, fac
tors insurance and shipping a tribute equal
to the difference In the actual cost of travel
and transportation via New York and New
Orleans respectively. These Western people
are indebted to Eastern . capitalists for rail
roads and for much of their river shipping,
and these vehicles of transportation are thus
compelled to contribute of their legitimate
business to the support of a rival system of
transportation. The government has, by lib
eral appropriations, fostered the maritime in
terests of the Eastern ports. An impartial re
gard for the great interior interests would
emancipate at least their continental com
merce from the thraldom under which it now
Some idea of our utterdisregard of the vast
future possibilities of trade in ourown hemis
phere is indicated in the report of the Post
master General, who, in referring to the ne
cessity of improved postal facilities with
South America, uses the following language:
"There is no portion of the world with
which the United States has as unsatisfactory
mail arrangements as with South America.
The correspondence for Brazil and other
countries on the east coast, in the absence of
amny regular, direct mail uteamship cmmmiunica
fion, is forwarded via England; and the cor
respondence for countries on the west coast,
sent via Panama, can only be prepaid to the
ports of debarkation on that coast, with no
a-surance of its being forwarded to interior
destinations, and always leaving a local
postal charge, excessive in amount, to be col
lected from theaddreseseon its delivery."
As your memorlalists have thus protested
against this monopoly, it would by no means
become them to claim the natural occupancy
of any commercial territory not legitimately
their own. It would be proper to divide this
continental commerce and postal service
among these great logitudrlial districts:
1. The Eastern Atlantic States and seaports.
2. The Pacific States and seaports.
8. TheStates lying between the Appalachian
and Rocky Mountains.
Each of these great commercial districts
should be provlded- with equal and adequate
facilities for postal communication with its
peculiar and appropriate continental ter
ritory. Your memorialists, however,
confine themselves to asking at your
hands the postal service, to which
they consider this great commercial
district represented by them entitled. They
respectfully but earnestly request that the
Senate and House of Representatives will In

1. Granting an appropriation from the
national treasury adequate to the support of
two lines of postal steamers, American built
and American owned. One to run semi
monthly between the ports of New Orleans
and Rio Janeiro, in the Empire of Brazil.
The other to run semi-monthly between the
ports of New Orleans and Aspinwall, in the
State of Panama, and United States of Co

and stations as Congress may in its wisdom

e United States and other powers having
dominion upon this continent, with a view
B to establish such a parity of revenue duties
upon commodities, the growth and product of
a the said contracting powers, respectively,
and to secure such modification of port and

fraternity of such contracting powers, and
B especially to secure the adhesion of all such

3. That the Senators and Representatives
In Congress representing the interests pro

legislative aid as may be necessary to give
effect to the International steam postal
service herein asked for, as well as to favor
the principles of commercial reciprocity and
friendly intercourse with our neighbors and
allies of this continent, by such modification of
our revenue duties as may be necessary to
give effect to any treaties or convention of
reciprocity, which may be negotiated by the
proper department of the government.
