Expert Says Southern Republics
Hold Great Possibilities for
U. S. Manufacturers
Yankee Dealers Can Compete Be
low Equator with Europeans
on an Equal Footing
(Special to The Herald)
"WASHINGTON, Nov. 26.—"Every
month sees the establishment of new
American business housea in South
America," said Dr. Albert Hale, chief
of the division of Information of the
Pan-American union, in an Interview
here today, "and almost all of these
are proving highly BUCceßsfuL There j
)s no doubt that the great future for
the trade expansion of the United
States lies in our sister republics of
the western hemisphere.
"Trade with these nations is increas
ing far more rapidly at the present
time than with any other part of the
world. In Jfi'O our exports to tfouih
America amounte 1 to $38,946,788, In i
1910 they were or nearly two
and a half times the earlier amount.
To the countries of North America, in
cluding, of course, Canada, we sent
$187,594,625 in 1900 and 385,620.069 in
1910, a doubling In value. In the same
period our exports to Europe adv
only 9 per cent in total value, while
those to Asia and Africa show a slighl
decline between the beginning and end
of the decade. Of course, if our com
merce with other countries is to growl
we must take a.s well as give, and our
imports from South America have more
than doubled since 1&00 while those
from North American countries have
grown even more rapidly. When one
realizes how little has been done by
American manufacturers toward devel
oping a demand for their products in
L,atin America it becomes evident that I
the possibilities In the systematic en-
eouragement of reciprocal trade rela
tions, with our neighbors of the west- ;
crn hemisphere are simply tremen- I
11 am: AN authority
Dr. Hale is probably the best in
formed authority in the world on con
ditions in the countries of Central and
South America, having traveled
through them repeatedly and being in
close touch with correspondents in all
the leading cities of these lands. His
observations on the prospects of com
mercial expansion in the trade between
these countries and the United States I
therefore possess exceptional Value.
"There is a common impression
among Americans who have not in- i
formed themselves," said Dr. Hale, j
"that the merchant and manufacturer
of tho United Stat3s is handicapped in
seeking 1 South American trade by in
adequate transportation facilities and
high rates. Conditions in this respect
have improved greatly in recent years.
Aa the freight movement, and more
particularly the passenger movement,
is far greater between South America
and Europe there naturally are more
steamship lines In operation between
these two continents and a great many
more tramp steamers are in this trade.
The liners running from American j
ports, however, are very good, sub
stantial and efficient boats as Is shown
by the fuct that few tramp steamers
run between the two continents. There
Is no American line running south of
the equator and naturally it would be
a source of pride and satisfaction if
our ilaj,' was more In evidence, but it
is a mistake to say that then- are no
good steamships running to South
America from the United States. The
time is the same, or to some ports a
little less, by the shiiiu running from
this country, and the rates are on ft
par with those from Kuropean ports.
"The American manufacturer who
proceeds intelligently is able to com
pete In South American markets on
equal terms with those of Great Brit
ain, Germany, France and Italy, as is
shown by the success of those Ameri
cans who go about it systematic uiy
and who do not expect to capture a
market without any adequate outlay
of time, money and effort.
"A plan that is being adopted with
good results by many manufacturers
who do not feel like undertaking the
expense of developing the South Amer- |
lean field all by themselves is to make
arrangements with othei plants in al
lied or related lines and to have all of
them work together through one agen
cy. This is an excellent method for
the small manufacturer, Americans
are learning that 11
up trade by simply placing cal il
or .samples with old
having European affiliation! bul I
do it by their own efforts ai
their own representative rep
resentatives of course must
themselves with the I
language of those from r
seek business and the mai ufacturer
■who is in a hurry for Imtni
suits is likfly to bo disappointed.
"The better understanding that has
come about between the r this
country and those to the south of us
within recent years has laid the
dations for a great commercial
pansion. We need many of the prod
ucts of these countries and

Dirigible Accomplishes 300-Mile
Trip with Difficulty
ROME, Nov. 26. —A long criticism of
the new Italian military dirigible bal
loon No. I, which performed the voy
age of 300 miles from ISracclano to
Campalton, near Venice, but only after
accidents and stoppages which pro
lonpced the Journeys from one to three
days, is published by the Tribuna.
The critic attributes the misadven
tures which befoll the balloon to the
fact thai tt is supplied with a flexible
keel of iron, weighing 300 kilogrammes
(t.: 1 pounds). The original type of the
Italian dirigibles, that constructed In

keel, but as this was found unservice

this very flexibility may, and does,
cause the equilibrium of the balloon
to be disturbed, so that excessive
weight Is placed upon certain ropes,
which may snap under the ntrnln. He
also considers that the weight of 672
pounds, which the balloon Is carrying,
