" "," "Chicago, June 27. The interest in,ilr.
Abel's recent trip to South America and his
elaborate report to The Dispatch has not
by auy means been confined to Pittsburg
and vicinity. The Dispatch has been
quite extensively read in this city and the
matter has been discussed informally at
clubs where business men talk over their
affairs after the noon lunch.
The net result of all the ten talks your
' correspondent has had with leading Chicago
business men shows that, almost without ex
ception, they are in favor of subsidies or
anything else that may be necessary to estab
lish h South American trade and put it on a
slronc, firm footing, and that without regard
to whether they hare any interests that
would be directly benefited or not.
Since the railways have brought the cap
ital of Mexico within four days' travel in
a palace car from Chicago, a vast amount of
Chicago meat products has been findiiig its
way into that country, especially canned
goods and lard and cured meats of various
kinds. It was onlv two or three days ago
that a Centra American inquired of a
representative merchant the location of the
stockvard, and said that whatever else
he missed seeing he did not want to miss
that. He had seen Chicago corned beef at
home but wanted to see the factories at
which it was put up. Chicago meat has
now obtained a pretty firm foot-bold in some
of our South American markets and is un
known in not one of them. Nobody in Chi
cago, therefore, should be much more thor
oughly interested in the exclusion of South
American trade than the firm of Armour &
Philip D. Armour, side whiskered and
trim, sits guarded like a Czar by a small
army of satellites over in the Home Insur
ance building, and it takes a vast amount
of explanation to a squad 01 important
understrappers to reach him; but his part
ner and chief manager, Mr. "Webster, is
more accessible. "Ever since the Pan
American Congress," said Mr. "Webster,
"more and more attention has been given to
South American affairs by Chicago business
men. I am glad to see that The Pitts
Udkg Dispatch has manifested so much
enterprise, and that the matter of
in that direction is taken up by it with so
much earnestness and enthusiasm. The
trade of Armour & Co. with South Amer
ica," he continued, "is just beginning to
open up. "We ship large quantities of our
poods not dressed beef, of course, but lard,
canned goods and the like to South Anier
iran markets, and we are pushing our trade
there just as rapidly as we can. I think it
will be only a few years until
our Government will realize the im
portance ot our South American trade
and the necessity of doing everything
it can consistently do to encourage and fos- I
tcr it. The goods of Armour & Co. which
hare gone to South America hare not been
shipped directly by us from Chicago. They
have been sent by New York and Baltimore
or other Eastern "firms.
"Up to this time we have had no branch
house in South America, but we intend to
have one very soon. Only yesterday I
learned that the Kansas City firm of
Armour & Co. are about to put on of their
men in mat country who is now in Enzland.
and the Chicago establishment which, of
cuur&e, is entirely separate irom tne otner,
though Mr. P. D. Armour owns stock in
both is considering the advisabilty of send
ing somebody there from Chicago."
"Do jou think it would be advisable for
the United States Government to subsidize
steamship lines?"
"I think it wonld be advisable for this
Government not only to subsidize steamship
lines, but to do everything else in its power,
wbich it consistently can do, to
loster - and increase commerce with
the South American States. The
establishment of regular lines of ocean
vessels would be a great help to all manu
facturing interests. It would put us on a
level with the manufacturers of other coun
tries. From the standpoint of an importer of
South American goods, Mr. J. "W. Doane,
of the tea,, coffee and spice firm of J. "W.
Doane & Co., thought it was not so much a
lack of transportation facilities that kept
the American manufacturer out of the South
Am erican markets as it was a lack of mar
gins. "We import coffee from Brazil and
occasionally send to that country flour and
"There is no lack of transportation facil
ities as far as they are required in our busi
ness. There used to be a line of ships be
tween Newport News, Va., and South
American ports, but it has been discon
tinued, as I understand, ior want ol suf
ficient encouragement.
"In coffee, from which this country toot
off the duty 15 years ago, the Brazilian
Government has imposed an export duty
equal to the former importduty collected bv
this country, so that the result is the same.
"We have to pay just as much for it. The
difference is that the tax is now paid to
more about Soaih America than they knew
about this country. Still I think it would
be good policy to subsidize steamship lines
between South America and this country
for the general good that it would do,
though the South American people would
have to be 'born again before it would
bring any additional trade to us."
Very different from some other Chicago
business houses of vastly less importance is
the wholesale drygoods house of Marshall
Field & Co. Among the many busy men
at Marshall Field's none is more unpreten
tious in appearance or more unassuming in
manner than Mr. Field himselU He talks
directly and to the point in the most business-like
"I can tell them what's the matier," said
Mr. Field. "We have built up a tariff wall
so high that the South Americans can't
come in, and Congress is building it higher,
and yet we wonder wh v thev don't come in.
By reason of the tariff we have made prices
higher than the prices of European goods
and yet we wonder whv the South Ameri
cans'buy from the Europeans ratner than
from us. That's why our goods are ex
cluded from the South American markets."
"What remedy would you suggest?"
"The tariff should be reduced. That is
the first step. Then every means should be
taken by the Government to ircrease the
facilities ior transportation and commercial
intercourse with the South American
nations. The tariff is the chief obstacle in
the way.
"We tax imports until the cost of living
in this country is so high that we have to
pay so much higher wages that it costs us
one-third more to produce goods than it
costs in Europe. "What we need is a gen
eral reduction of the tariff all around."
"Do you think that the tariff should be
wholly taken off?"
"No. I am a protectionist. The tariff
should be reduced and not increased," said
Mr. Field, placing special emphasis on the
last three words.
"About to what extent do you think it
should be reduced?"
"That I cannot venture to say. It would
take a commission of the wisest men in
the United States a year's carelul study to
determine where and to what extent changes
should be made. The tariff law should be
made for the people and not lor the benefit
of individuals."
"What do you think of the policy of sub
sidizing steamship lines between this coun
try and South America?"
"I think it would be good policy if we
were in proper condition for it. As it is
now you can run all the ships you want and
it won't do any good. You can hring the
South Americans up 40 this country and
take them around, and have dinners for
them, and have all the fine talk you want,
but it won't do any good. "We can't per
suade them to buy ironi us so long as we
charge them one-third higher prices than
European merchants are asking. They are
too bright a people ior that."
Mr. B. M. Fair, Mr. Field's Superintend
ent, did not wholly agree with the senti
ments expressed by his employers. He said
no matter how greatly the facilities for in
tercourse with South American States might
be increased, it could not benefit the firm
of Marshall Field & Co., because their
business was wholly in another direction
that is, taking the goods of Eastern,
Southern and European manufacturers and
selling them in the West. He had no fault
to find with our present tariff and thought
that it would be a good idea for the Gov
ernment to subsidize steamship lines to
republics in the Southern hemisphere. In
his judgment what the country most
needs just now is foreign markets for
its products and anything that wonld in
crease the foreign market he was in favor
The firm of Fraser & Chalmers, extensive
manufacturers ol mining machinery, created
a sensation by announcing a short time age
that they were about to establish a branch
factory in England to manufacture goods
for their foreign customers. Speaking for
that firm, Mr. Fraser said this evening he
could not see what good it would do to sub- 1
sidize steamship lines to South America.
"We were at the same time prohibiting the
importation of goods which the South
Americans had to sell to us.
The Toltimo of Kusiness Daring tne

"That brings us to the tariff," baid he,
"and when yon talk ol reducing the tariff
the American workman says you are knock
ing him ont. The subsidizing of steamship
lines might cause the importation of some
kinds ot American goods, but whether it
would be advantageous on the whole I do
noi know."
Mr. Fraser said that the chief reason for
establishing a branch factory in England is
to escape the effect of a prejudice wbich is
found to exist in foreign markets against
machinery ot American manufacture.
His firm shipped considerable goods to
South America, and their shipments to the
eastern parts of that continent were made
by way ot .Liverpool, it took considerable
time, but no great amount of inconvenience
had been experienced. His South Ameri
can trade had been built up, as he termed
it, by hustling. The firm sent out salesmen
from Chicago, who visited the mines and
then went directly to the parlies financially
interested in them.
"What do you think of the advisabilitv
of subsidizing steamship lines between this
country and South America?"
"I don't see why the Government shouldn't
do it, if they want to encourage traffic be
tween the two countries. It would be a rec
ognition of the importance of South Ameri
can trade, and it could hardly fail to produce
good results. But what is' going to make
the demand for manufactured goods in
Brazil is the price. Pittsburg has
got to compete with Englaud,
where they get most of their manu
factured goods now. "We are compelled
to pay a high tariff on raw material here,
and how are we to import it and send it to
Pittsburg and manufacture it there, then
send it to bouth America and sell it there
cheaper than the English," who get their
raw material free? That's the question
that's got to be answered.
Mr. W. J. Felix, of the wholesale wooden
ware firm of Felix &Marston, was warmly
in favor of subsidizing steamers, though
it could not brine his firm any
additional business. "The trouble is that
these people have no use for our goods,"
said he. "They don't know how to use
them, and if they had them they would not
know what thev were for. I have traveled
ell over the Old World, and I found only
iuuuuiuriesuereioe people were accus
tomed to use labor-saving contrivances in
their domestic life as they do in this coun
try. That was in Scotland and England
The trouble with those South American
countries is that labor is so cheap
that they do not know the value of labor
saving machinery. They could not be per
suaded to invest in a clothes wringer, for
instance. It's a good bit like "down South "
only a great deal more so. The people are

New York, June 27. Special telegrams
to Sradstreet's report a moderate falling
away in the volume of general merchandise
distributed the past week. This has been
noticeable particularly at SL Louis, Kansas
City, IS ew Orleans, Memphis, Omaha and
Cincinnati. The customary check to dis
tribution with the approach of midsummer
and the extreme heat which prevailed at the
"West are responsible for the change noted.
Crop prospects generally are favorable, ex
cept for sugar in Louisiana and grain in
"Western Kansas. California wheat is
threshing out better than was expected. The
movement of staple cotton goods, of boots
and shoes and leading groceries is well
maintained, but in most other lines this is
not true.
Cattle and hogs are stronger at varions
"Western markets, but on diminished re
ceipts rather than increased demand. Coffee
and sugars have receded Jo and e respec
tively. Bank clearings at 51 cities for the
six days ending June 26, are 81,116,790,092.
a decrease from this week last year of eight
tenths of 1 per cent New York City's
clearings, which constitute 60.6 per cent of
the grand total, are less than those tor the
like period last year by over 8.2 per cent,
while at CO other cities the gain is 13.5 per
cent Stock speculation at New York shows a
stronger tone and prices are higher, the an
nouncement of the adverse opinion in the
Sugar Trust case enabling the market to
cut loose from that disturbing influence.
Beports of railroad consolidations and rate
war settlements also help prices.
The volume of business in iron and .steel
for June has fallen below anticipations.
Throughout the West and South a cood
trade has been done in crude iron, and quite
a number of Southern iron makers are at
least asking more money for crude iron for
luture delivery. Steel rails have been
marked up $1 per ton, with a firmer market.
Anthracite coal production is now within
15,000 tons of the output to the like date last
year, with higher prices to take effect July 1.
"Wheat stocks available, both coasts, prom
ise to D2 9,000,000 bushels larger on Julv 1
than they were one year ago. If 20,000,000
bushels be allowed for wheat added to (de
pleted) reserves, 18,000,000 bushels for ex
cess exports, as compared with 1888-89, and
6,000,000 for iood (more than in the year be
fore), the aggregate, 53,000,000 bushels, rep
resents all the excess wheat irom the crop ot
1889, as compared with 1888, notwithstand
ing the Government reported an excess of
78,000,000 bushels. "Wheat has weakened,
ashave corn and oats, crop damage reports
failing to offset the general prospects ot
favorable harvests. Exports ot wheat (and
flour as wheat) irom both coasts this week
equal 1,495,007 bushels of wheat, against
1,555,851 bushels in the like week last year,
and as compared with 1,224,400 bushels last
week. The total exported June 30, 1889, to
date is 104,584,081 bushels, against 5,831,
651 bushels lor a like share of 1888-89.
Jobbers have sold considerable quantities
of drygoods this week at concessions, in or
der to close out their open stockj of season
able goods preparatory to stock taking. In
the regular way business has been quiet to
lair.jagents for fall wear dress goods re
porting most activity. Cotton coods prices
are generally firm, print cloths alone being
weaker. "Woolen goods demand and prices
are unsatisfactory. Cotton flannels prices
for next season are those now ruling. Wool
is dull and weaker in price at interior mar
kets on slack demand and reports of lower
prices at London wool sales. Cotton is 5-16c
lower on pressure to realize, lower cables
and good crop reports.
Business failures reported to Bradstreet's
number 165 in the United States this week,
against 144 last week and 211 this week last
year. Canada had 17 this week, against 18
last week. The total number of failures in
the United States January 1 to date is
5,400, against 5,885 in a like portion of 1889.
E. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review
of trade says: "While the volume of
trade as indicated by special re
ports, by bank exchanges at interior
cities, and py railroad earnings, continues
larger than in the same month of any pre
vious year, the prospec( for the future is
rendered lees satisfactory by industrial hesi
tation and by doubt in regard to the mone
tary outlook. Industrial hesitation results
from the delay of legislation and increased
uncertainty regarding the outcome. "Wool
is distinctly weaker in the interior and at
Eastern markets, and a disposition is' shown
to meet the needs of manufacturers. This
uncertainty also affects estimates of the
future demand for iron, and so continued
addition of new lurnaces weakens that mar
Set Large transactions in structural iron
and rails have been closed, but without
strengthening prices.
Business at other cities is maintained for
the season, and the exceedingly confined
tone prevailing does not at all abate. Bos
ton notes good demand and higher prices for
cotton and leather goods, demand for lum
ber and large receipts of wool, which tend
to weaken the market. At PhiladelDhia
coal is dull. Chicago continues confident
of a large and profitable fall trade, and the
statistics of the Board of Trade ' show in
crease over last year in the grain business
and in seeds, a slight decrease in meats, but
a gain of uearlr 100 per cent in dressed beef,
an increase in lard and a large decrease in
butter. The drygoods business exceeds last
year's, and the prospects of the cloth
ing trade for the fall are thought
quite flattering. St Louis reports trade in
all lines above the average; Milwaukee
notes excellent crop prospects and good
business. At Detroit business is quiet An
average business is reported at Kansas City,
and no change at Pittsburg except that,
while iron mills are fairly employed rails
are Sllower and glass works closing for the
In all the reports, whether from North or
South, there is a noteworthy absence of
complaint about collections, and monev
markets are fully supplied, but the demand
is quite active at St Louis and Cleveland,
and pushes close upon the supply at Mil
waukee while it is weak at Kansas City.
The money market is firmer at Boston and
Pittsburg, but plentifully supplied at
Chicago and easy at Philadelphia, and the
coming July disbursements are expected
to cause greater ease everywhere.
