t ( t , HE'SUN, MONDAY?, APRIL 'lV 19 & 12: ?? OVERSEA BIDS FOR AMERICAN GOODS IS'cir List of OpporiuniticH ( Prepared for Manufacture ers.nnd Exporters. IPS OX ENGLISH SYSTEM Efforts of British Govern ment to Extend Trade Arc Set Forth. Below are oversea business opporlunl. tfes for American producers wlio care to Xtend their export lines. , Mention haa been made In tlili column H the German methods of capturing trade In China ; n1o of Kngllsh manu . ftcturerB orpanl-lng to follow In tho xirman' footntrps. That the Bngll-th faovernment Is alive to oversea oppor tunities may lie seen from the following extract headed "Oversea Markets" from the Government Hoard of Trade Jour not, which reads as follows: On of tho most Important conditions for Increaflng an rxlptln? or nbtnlnltiK a nw export trade Is tli.u accurate In formation should bo available as to the condition- and prospects for the sale of particular goods In the oversea markets concerned. Kxperlenco has shown that here la a considerable field for otflolal or semi-official assistance. MoM ol tho (Trent exporting countries of the world have systems for supplying commercial Intelligence to their trading communi ties. Generally speaking, they arc bared upon the reports sent home .by official representatives resident. In oversea coua tries. Such official representatives, however, are not necessarily men with actual business experience, and even where the representatives do possess experience In Ono or ar.o.thcr class of business, 'they cannot be in a position to furnish re borts as cxptrtH upon all r.f the lar.ee Variety of trades with which they may he concerned. It Ii necessary, therefore, to supplement the Information they sup Ply by data from other sourceSj Special Conimlaaloner. The Board of Trade lias frequently In the past despatched special commission er to examine particular markets. Kueh missions have been sent to South and Ce trap-America, Canada, Australia. South Africa, Persia, China and Ilusla. In these cases the commissioner has been charged with the duty of reportlm: on the prospects of Hrltlsh trade as a whole, but the growing Intensity of the competition between manufacturers of various classes of commodities 'for the trade of large consuming markets Ins made It lncreaslntily desirable that a market should be surveyed In respect of any particular J Industry by men with specialized knowledge. Tndeed, the principle !s one which has been acted upon by the X'nlted States for oome tlm past. Developments ac cordingly have recently been made on these lines, three technical Investigators having been sent last year to Spain charged with making inquiries with re aped to a limited range of goods. ' British trade commissioners and com mercial attaches In various endntries overseas have recently urged vlth some frequency the necessity of British ex porters sending expert Investigators ta examine markets abroad. It was urged that In order to make these Investiga tions effective it was desirable that the Investigator should be (.elected by the trades concerned and that steps should be taken to give the investigator an of ficial standing. 'In the early part of last year the mat ter waa considered by a ub-comm!ttee of the late advisory committee to the ..Hoard of Trade on Commercial Intelli gence, which waa required to renort in ;what industries efforts should be made to Induce manufacturers to combine or reaerate for the promotion of their Joint Interests in relation tr th'lr exuort trade, especially for the appointment of travelling Investigators In the oversea markets, and on the natuie of the assist ance which the Hoard of Trade could render In facilitating such combination'. The sub-committee took evidence from a number of trades and also cni!?.dered the steps taken by other countries in the matter of associations for investigation and export. Export Associations. -As a result of Its Investigations the ub-committee recommended that the Board or Trade should actively take up tho question of facilitating the forma tion of export associations of manufac turers by placing before representative meetings of manufacturers In such trades the advantages of cooperation for export purposes and the results obtained by such action by other countries, bv of fering to defray part of the cost of the despatch of expert Investigators by such associations to approve oversea markets, nd by appointing officers to attend the meetings of the executive committees of such export associations In an advisory capacity when desired. The sub-committee considered that the iBoard of Trade should contribute to the expense of the investigations, and that the reports of the Invwtlgators should be supplied Immediately to members of the associations and should he available to the trade generally through the Board of Trade only after a lapse of a consid erable Interval, say, twelve months. It will he seen that by the system recom mended by the sub-committee it Is pos sible to obtain for each trade, nt a com paratively small expense to the Govern ment, the advantages which accrue from expert official Investigation of oversea 'markets. The Hoard of Trade accepted the report and appointed a committee to carry tho recommendations Into effect. , The first Investigation which Is being carried out on theso lines Is on behalf .of the Jewelry, silverware, electroplate anu auiea traues in the south American market-.. The Department of Overseas Trade (development of Intelligence) has been In communication with renre- tentative associations In these trades In tendon, Birmingham nud Sheffield, with the result that arrangements have been made for a Joint Investigation, the rfc.t or wnich is nclng defrayed In part by trades and In part by the Government The Investigator. (5. I. Hraddoik. an officer of the department, will carry considerable collection of samples which have been selected as representa tive of the productions of the trade as a whole. lie will exhibit these samples In various South American towns and will ascertain in what respects they fall short of what is required by the mark t. The samples arc priced, hut are not la belled with the manufacturer's name. Xo Intention to Canrnu, There Is no Intention of canvassing for orders, but the Investigator will in general give th names of a number of manufacturers In ri"lon-e to Inquiries as to what firms make particular types of goods. For the Information of the British manufacturer the Investigator will purchase a considerable, range of samples of goods now (hiding a roidv sale In the countries visited nd . make such inquiries in miy he neeen nary to supplei tent exlsllns Importers and their c'liirmlerNtlCH, Ac.

March 51. State Comptroller Travis believes that a direct Stato tax le-y for the next year Is Inevitable to meet the requirements of the sinking fund. He said to-day that the ordlnarv expenses of government exclusive of the slnklrg fund will need all of the ef. tlmated resources for the year. The rate will he approximately the same as It was for this year, he added. "The levy of a direct tax for the sinking fund Is mandatory under the 'ontltutlnn," Mr. Travis explained. "find In voting for th Ir.sue of bonds the people of the State pledged them- sehes to pay n direct tax each ear until mesa Donui arc redeemed. The burden placed on the Individual tax payer Is not oppressive. The benefits derived Include tho Improvement of canals, highways and the preservation of the forests.

LIVE TOPICS OF THE UNIFORM SITUATION IS WORRYING MANY Men's Wenr Firms Fenr Losses if Women's Wear Mnkcrs Get Contracts. Men's clothing manufacturers, who have mado large Investments In special machinery to speed tip the production of trnlted Slates army uniforms In an ticipation of getting frequent and larger contra tts were much concerned over re ports from Washington that manufac turers of women's wearing apparel are to bo given contracts for Government materials. New York manufacturers of men's wear have Insisted that their factories 1 are fully equipped to produce all the garments needed by the Government and have Intimated that the nwardlng of contracts with men's wear houses In other markets was done for the purpose of holding a club over the heads of the New York concerns. But with the ex tension of the uniform making facilities to the women's wear Industry the sen tlmcnt Is becoming general that future contracts will bo small and of short tenure as far as the Individual awards aro concerned. On the other hand. It is said, by men who are close to the loners that he In Washington, thnt there will be develop ments In the uniform making situation within tho next few weeks that will as sure big contracts for every house which Is In a position to handle them. Despite the Government's attitude that It Is not responsible for the Installation of spechl machinery and that no request was made to the manufacturers to spend large sums in equipping their plants with special machinery, the manufac turers. It Is understood, are preparing to submit to the authorities evidence of tho urgent request made by the depot quartermasters for more speed In the production of garment. These requests could only bo compiled with through the Installation of special machinery. In view of the assistance given nt the manufacturers It Is ex pected that every effort will be made to see that these houses are given con tracts so that their Increased facilities may be fully utilized. Collar to Coat More. Indications are that within the next three months the price of men's collnrs will again be advanced to the retailer. I'rnctlcally every collar and shirt manufacturer In New York deolnie that there Is every probability that tho rise will come, due to the Increased cost of raw materials. '-v Cotton Goods Men to Meet.
