A REMARKABLE LETTER
John Barrett of Oregon Writes From Siam of Asia, ANEW MARKET FOR COTTON Five Hundred Million People Want the American Staple—A Dozen Mills to Be Built in Asiatic Cities. New Orleans Times-Democrat. Hon. James Barrett of Oregon is the United States minister resident and con sul guard in Siam, He has written a very remarkable letter to President Mc Closkey of the New Orleans board of trade, the whole point of which is that if New Orleans would build the Nica ragua canal she could ship cotton through it and across the Pacific to the ports of Asia. This letter is very much more interesting than anything else which has appeared in favor of the Nic arauga project in the past quarter of a century, and the readers of the Times Democrat will fully appreciate it. New Orleans has an opportunity to ex tend her cotton market. Eastern Asia is about to provide that opportunity. The smoke of the Japan-China war has bare ly cleared away before smoke commences to belch forth from the chimney tops of great manufacturing plants. Cotton mills are being started and new com panies organized. From the present out look China and Japan bid fair to see within the next year the establishment of a dozen large factories. Where will these mills get their cotton? This question is continually asked. The answer usually is. that it will come from England, which means from Amer ican second-handed, or from India. At present neither Chtna nor Japan furnish es cotton in quality or quantity to satisfy the probable demands of these mills. What I have to say on this subject is the result of careful investigation, ob servation and examination of minute de tails. Although I do not hail from the part of the United States which has cot ton as its great staple, and I am the rep resentative of the United States govern ment to a country where the field is lim ited, compared with that of China and Jnpan, yet I am deeply concerned in the development of our foreign commerce and In awakening especial interest in the opportunity afforded by these transpa cific countries. If this letter will avail to arouse the attention of New Orleans exporters and cause them to appreciate the advantage of at least watching what I might term the “Asiatic revival,” I shall be amply rewarded. contly a prominent resident o£ Shanghai, who has made several fortunes In “far Cathay,” and who Intends to make an other before he dies, said to me: ”1 wish the Nicaraguan canal were completed and open to traffic. I would start a steamship line to carry cotton direct from New Orleans to China and Japan. In an other year we will have in or about Shanghai four big cotton goods manufac turing plants in w'orking order, and I know of a half dozen other ports that are organizing similar establishments.” This so Impressed me that I asked him where the cotton would be purchased. “In England.” he immediately replied, “because with present conditions we can buy cheaper there than elsewhere. We do not want India cotton, but the Ameri can product. On account of high rates direct from America, or overland and across the Pacific, we are placed in the remarkable position of being able to buy American cotton cheaper in England 'than we can in the United States.” "Do you really believe,” I inquired,' “that New Orleans could control the cot ton supply of this part of the world if the Nicaraguan canal were constructed?" "Without any question I do,” he an swered. "and I say it as a Brithfsher, who knows the field thoroughly, and who quite naturally would prefer to see Great Britain remain the chief force in Asiatic trade.” This conversation is only one of a score of proofs that have come to my at tention that New Orleans will do well to watch the demand for cotton in eastern Asia,take steps to have a hand in the pie, and enter with greater energy in to the movement to secure the early building of the Nicaragua canal. Still another incident which has its les son. I had the honor of being presented to the Chinese viceroy of one of the chief seaboard provinces. As he spoke Eng lish, an agreeable conversation was be gun. Suddenly, In the course of it. I was almost startled by the force with which lie ejaculated the query: "Why doesn't the United States build the Nicaragua canal? If it belonged to Great Britain it would have been finished years ago. Book at the Suez canal. I atn building a cotton mill. I buy American cotton in England; it comes here through an Eng lish canal, in English ships. You build the Nicaragua canal and all that will I was unable to satisfactorily answer Ills questions; but I could not help re membering what he said. With a population of 500,000,000 back of it, this Asiatic coast must not only be come a great consumer, but a great man ufacturer. Will the United States in gen eral and New Orleans in particular seize the opportunity? The undeniable proof of ils value is, first, the fact that its im ports from European lands already amount to hundred of millions of dol lars. and, second, the unceasing and in ereas'ng efforts of Egland, Germany and France to control th» laiger demand and wider field that is now being opened up. Cotton goods of many varieties have always found a ready market in Chinn, Japan and Siam, but the demand of the future is sure to l'ar exceed that of the past. Repeated attempts have been made to grow first-class cotton in these lands; but with the exception of a few iprovinees in China, the results have been discouraging. With an abundanme of • heap labor at hand. It Is not surprising that factories should be established to make the kinds of goods wanted on the ground at competitors’ rates, after hav ing Imported tile raw material. In one p.-nse New Orleans might be benefited if n demand developed through England for American cotton, but the most of the opportunity will not. be made by sellers, ns if It wns sold direct from the United States, white the buyer may at any time rbnnge to another market if the Amer ica o base of supply has not begn errated by Its own promoters’ energies and at tention a permanent and glowing de mand for It In eiwelus'on. I would say to the busi ness men of New Orleans and the south, that oik: of the greatest blessings of the Nicaragua ear.al would be the placing of these developing oriental markets in such proximity to them that Splendid rommenlal results would follow Let them, therefore redouble their energies for us construction, and in the meantime do what they can to gain, first, n prac tical know'edge of, and, second, an ac tual Inteiest In the eastern Asiatlo trade exchange, so that they will already have made a commendable start when the waters of the two seas shall rush togeth er. and give, as It were, an irreslstlbe hydraulic pressure to hte efforts of the United States to refrain a lost commer cial prestige. JOHN BARRETT, United States Minister to Slam. Bangkok, September, 1S95. CUBA GRAY. To the State Herald: 1 am occasionally so unfortunate as to be assigned the "wrong pew,” and it de volves upon me then to decline such courtesy with thanks. One of your cor respondents In the issue of Wednesday refers to my peculiar taste for “beauti ful word painting.” The allusion oc curred In connection with expressions of intense admiration and pleasure ex perienced by your correspondent while reading the speech delivered by Govern or Oates at Chickamauga. Your corre spondent dilates thus: "There is less than the usual appeal to rhetoric in the sentences. There Is also a lack of that beautiful word painting, which is so at tractive to women,especially of the Cuba Grey order.” Now, Cuba Grey rises to affirm that she does not belong in the pew of devotees to “word painting.” She deems words valuable solely as vehicles of facts and thoughts. Her own rugged style of writing should prove exemption from the charge Implied by your corre spondent. She admires “hand painting” rather than beautiful word painting. The strokes laid on by Governor Oates’ “gallant lost hand” elicited her warmest appreciation; and those two faithful members of our sturdy Joseph F. John ston threw in some dashes that rendered him quite worthy the title of a first-class hand painter. But deeds, not words, claim the sincerest deference of Cuba Grey, for without deeds words are empty and avail naught. Cuba Grey, of all women' is least likely to be attracted by rhetorical arrangements of words. Were she inclined to such form of worship then would her “womanly" taste be com pletely captivated by the witching wand of Col. Robert G. Ingersoll’s faultless rhetorical flow. The speech which Jo seph F. Johnston delivered at Hartselle on the occasion of “reunion” there con tained just the type of “word painting” that accords best with Cuba Grey’s fan, cy. The speech of Governor Oates, made later at Chickamauga' seemed almost after the pattern cut by Johnston, so the governor’s oration was admirable. But why should the “correspondent” be so reduced in stock of illustrations as to pounce on Cuba Grey in order to “point a moi-al and adorn a tale?” If that sorely mistaken individual did but truly fathom the nature of one woman he would dis cover probably that she “means some thing" herself by use of words, and also admires only those orators and writers who Incline to strength and fidelity of purpose rather than faultless rhetoric.

The masher, very much out of breath, said: ‘You see that young brat running down the street?

The New York Herald's Washington special saYs: Despite reports persistently circulated to the effect that the president, in his annual message to congress, will recom mend recognition of the independence of Cuba, I am in a poslton to state that the administration will use Its good offices to restore peace In that island as the first step toward solving this question.During the last two or three cabinet meetings the Cuban question has been thoroughly discussed, and I am Informed the presi dent and Secretary Oleny have concluded it would be unwise and dangerous to do anything further thah to wait for an op portune time for the United States to of fer its services as a mediator. The offer for mediation will not be made Immediately. It would almost cer tainly be rejected if It were. Before it is made the admlnstratlon wants to be sure the pronositon will be received by both sides. With the information that the authorities now have at hand, they are firmly convinced that the opportunity will come before the close of the present year. They' view the situation in this way; Spain's war expenses are being paid out of $40,000,000 loaned by two French banks on Cuban bonds. At her present rate of expenditure it in estimated that this sum will be exhausted by December 15. It then becomes a question where other funds are to come from with which the war can be pushed. When It is found that the Spanish treasury is practically empty the more sober-minded Spaniards are liable to think that tha ttoie ’has arrived for a cur tailment of military expenses. By this time it is assumed the Madrid authorities will be in a humor to consider terms of peace. They will be approached as deli cately os possible by our statS depart ment. It will be made plainly manifest that the United States does not Intend to interfere with tihe po litical affairs of Cuba; that our chief de sire is to see restoration of peace, not only in the interest of humanity, but for commercial reasons. Should the offer be accepted the administration will then lend its best efforts towards bringing about an amicable agreement which will result In a cessation of hostilities and the practical Independence of Cuba. Instead of recommending action by congress looking to recognition of the In dependence of Cuba by the Ulted States, the president, I am also Informed, will do all in his power to urge conservatism on the part of congress in dealing with Cuban affairs.
