But ther* ib r.o u?e blinkinp at the fact
that rtary thiaga of thi* kind occurred,
and our South American n. i_hb_r? hare

i_?cs thn was, not mnde clear and the
buyer d'.d not understand it that way.
(if course, manufacturer* in the I'nited
Statea had a perfect right to re.iert
orders, si tn r.otify thc purehaser that
the price* had advanced, if no positiva
agreement for the delivcry of the mer
chandis. was made when the order was
taken. But all too many agreements
of a binding chararter were made
which have not been kept. ln practi
Sall** all of the principal eentres mer?
chant.*. arc able to .how correspondence
and agreement* which put our mer
chants on the defensive at once. More
over, there is abundant evidence citeJ
by responsible American residents in
tha pnn-Amcrican countries of opera?
tion* that are far from creditable to
business eoncerns in the I'nited States.
Pespite all of the education and agi?
tation that has been going on about
our methods of packing goods, our
propensity fer smothering South Amer?
iea with catalo_ues printed in Engli?h,
our habit of putting two cent stamps
on letters which call for tive cents a'iJ
rimi'.ar juvenile indiscretions, there il
no doubt thnt thoy still continue to a
?urpriaina extent.
lt is also true that we daily try tfl
fmd markcts for articles qaite BBBttod
for the tropics. Kor examplc, it is not
a joke, but a fact, that inquiry was
solemnly made in Buenos Aires only
recently by a coneern <>f considerable
standing in the I'nited States as to the
. I for snow scrapers during the
coming winter. and there are well au
thenticated iastaaces where Asaeriean
esa houses Wlita Sboat having
agenta in Baenos Aires selling good*
? "m in Chile or Pcru, a thousand
to tWO thousand miles away on the
other side of the Andes.
Dcspite al! of these annnying and
Hi-couragmg incidents, however, the
fact remaini that the great volume of
our business in the tropici is conducted
jntelligcntlv nnd rfnc.ently. There is
littlfl doubt that we blundered a gooJ
deal twenty-live to thirty years ago.
v.-hen ws Brst began to do bosiaeaa in
B serious way iti Central and South
American countries. A large part of
the first orders to American houses
came through men who were more or
less of the adventurer type and who
were in tho new countries becaaas lt
) ad become uncomfortable for them at
home or there was not excitement
enough. These men wrote back to the
, Statea, sfter a little experienee
in thc count.y, sccking opportunitics
to handle goods on commission. Mary
times has the hend of some manufac'
uring coneern called in his sales man?
ager to sav: 'John, whnt's become of
that line of spring stufT we got stuck
on last vear and have been trying to
work off'" Here's B letter from a fel?
low ia rhile whe says thev need sotn.
thing of the kind down there. lt seems
l,. mo ws can take a chance on it and
give him the commission he asks if he
can move it."
The idea usually appealed to the
sale* manager, and so the "stufT" was
..-? to Chile or some other distnnt
?v rn clmi H out. I'suaUy the
manufacturer did not realize that by
hu aetion he was. tirst ?>f all. giving
Btanding am! reputation to some
man "f whom be knew noth?
ing and through whom he WOBld
not think of doing business at
home. ln many iasUBCes men who
secured recognition '.r\ this way made
Unfsvorsble reeordS, which were later
pointed to ns lh"-" Of represcntativc
Americana. When goodi wire sold on
commission through inch m.-n there
waa generally no thought about the
.igrilicanee ?,f the net or more busi
noai later ob. In faet, b large propor
tion of our manufacturers twenty
vears ago had about the same idea

In later rears, as we hecame more
serious in our consideration of tropi
cal commerce, we sent reully good men
into the foreign Beld, and to-day one

that are of real value, and it has been
espeeially disheartening lo these m*n
to observe the ehararter of some of the
new exploitation* that have started
since lfU. They have had a difficult
time to overcome the prejudice
arout-ed by the marauders who pre
ceded them, and, having aecomplished
BO mueh by hard work, they now find
Spaniah wholly inadequate to express
their views concerning some of the
new adventurers.
Tho number of wholly irresponsible

the sort of business men who are
caught by irresponsible *chemers i?
The time has come for American
business men to stop dismissing all
these disconcerting reports by saying:
"Oh. all thi* la all right. hut it i* very
greatly exaggerated." We should not
close our eyes to the fact that these
evil* exist. Our job is to remedy tb*m
as far as possilde.
In the tirst place, the head* of Ameri?
can manufacturing eoncerns should in?
form themselves by reading up on
th*** countries and by talking with
neople who have been through them.
1 They should not be content to delegato
, the task to some understudy who has
| not the vi*ion or imagination to BB*
: preciate what may be irivolved. Thi*
| study should not be superftcinl in rhar
acter, but the effort should be made to
I really got at the farts, nnaly/.e then
nnd get thc best criticism possible on
any plan* made for developmg new busi?
ness. Only men whose charaeters _h'l
reputations are unquestioncd should
be dealt with in estabhshing new eon
neetiona, and young men from the
I'liited States sent to foreign station,
should be selected with BVOfl great"'
care than that exercised in plaeing m"n
in home organi/.ations. Ileyond this,
however, our busme*. executives ?hould
go and see some of these countries for
themaelves. ln no other way ia it pos?
sible to understand them. In jdanning
to go the provincialism wh.ich is ao
often charaeteristic of our K'iropcnn
tour* ihoald be put a.-ide lf the peo?
ple of the tropics are not arrustomed to
taking a heavy breakfast in the mori.
iric. that doe* not by any means indi
cate that they are DBCivillSod or do not
understand modern ways. If the hoteh
do not compare with elabor.ite e?tab
lishments of New York City, there is no
OCCasion to conclude that the countrv
i~ perfeetly hopelesa nnd does not'want
American merchandise. Any oue ,,f
common sense can get along very well
in must of these countries with a little
patience and philosophy.
If we are comg tn develop our busi?
ness 1:1 Central and South Ameriea it
will be by employing the same methodi,
?0 far a* fundanieiitals are eOBCOrned,
that bring success in the home market*.
We cannot consider present conditions
when we have unusual opportunitie*
in these new tields, but we must d:v
count the future and plan for >tnbility
Wfl must also be prepared to spend
some money ar.d take some losses at
the outset. just as wo would in building
up new territory at home.
Moreover, a* a par* of any campaign
promoting our commercial interests, I
believe it 1* the duty of every Am. ricrn
business house to erert all the influ
enee it can to discourage and yuppres*
the activities of those bringing drs
eredit on Amencsn basiaesa as a wbole,
.ibroad as well as nt home.
