over Germany in the trade with China.
This Is agreeable to the United

from the talk which we hear at home.
We are aware that we are making
gains in foreign trade, but we liave
been told that the gains on our own
side of the Atlantic are smaller than
are those of Germany. .. Our consuls
and other persons who are acquainted
with the foreign trade situation tell us
that Germany, is pushing her trade in

greater zeal and skill than we are.

third on the roll until a few years ago,

will remain at the front, and Increase
our lead there. We know that In the
