4$4o.4-a-6$ 4revr''9xC O dtSi-tt & With stocks already full to utmost capacity, The Palais Royal "buyers" have lately purchased additional goods, the bills amounting to nearly $35,000. The most important and last of a series of special sales is billed for tomorrow. A retrospective view: The manufacturers and importers have been closing out 1 899 goods, prior to the introduction of styles for 1900. Our earlier purchases and sales have been 1 899 goods. Few housekeepers in Washington but have reason to know of the bargains secured and offered. And now comes the last and most important distribution of the series. Last, because the markets are now denuded of '99 goods. Most important, because of greater quantities, larger variety, and least prices. Very much less than the least quotations of the past or future, because less prices have been paid and can be asked. Detailsfollow. t the mws. 1 v ;.j uii. 1 1 ifrffr -H n 0 TO V AlaJ&Wi&U.

A MfCereoct) to tbe statistics of commerce ghomis a still more marked contrast. Take. nor instance, the annual importe from the 1meted States by a single osieny, Canada, eompared with those of tbe eighteen sister republics. During the calendar year 1396. their reepeunt Imports of merchandise, from the United States, were, in value, as folio s: Canada $,'5',SB Mexico 28,ie8,01S Fire Central American rcpubticfi 5,8S6,l!'i Ten Sooth American reptWHs S2,n,S6i Two West Indian republics ,K,&K Total by republics ?',6S,4 As shown by the above totals, Canada is, by far. Uncle Sam's best customer in the Western Hemisphere, her annual pur chases being over ?25.W0,000 in excess of those of all the eighteen sister republics combined. Contrasting the per capita purchases of each, we ind a still more astonishing state of affairs. The total populatiion of Canada is but 5,250,000, while that of the eighteen sister republics is 51,532,915. The per capita purchases fo each for the year 1898 were, then, as follows: Ouuda ...5I6.S2 Tin- eigbteeM sinter republics !.- These facts, and many more which might be cited, show very clearly the importance of a name broad enough to include all America, and a commercial movement broad enough to open and develop all its markets for the surplus products and man ufaetures of the United States. The word "pan" supplies the name, and the several "Pas-Americsa" movements will, it is hoped, be instrumental in establishing more intimate trade relations with both the colo nies and the republics. I'n u. A in erl inn 31urkc(s. As may be observed by a glance at the map all the eighteen sister republics and all tbe colonies, except Canada, are south ot the United States. In climate, resources, products, supply, and demand, they are the reverse and com plement of the United States. Commercial exchanges on such lines are in harmony with sound laws of trade and political economy. In wealth and opportunities these Southern countries may be called so many American Indus ope, Inviting, and prof itable fields for the surplus capital and energies of the Grand Republic of the Xortb. as tbe people of those Southern lands are in the habit of designating tbe United Stater. . The almost unlimited commercial possi bilities in that direction may be estimated by comparing the value of the present small annual purchases from tbe United States, by the eighteen Elster republics, with what they would be if their per capita imports were as great as thoee of Canada, namely, tii.2. At that rate, with a population of 61,S,SI5, the total would be $7S8,1S4,257. This is a prize worth working for, and there Is no good reason why. with the new era of railway construction, and mining and agricultural development, upon which Mexico, the West Indies, Central and South America, have recently entorod, their an nual demand for our commodities should not. In a very few years, reach the total just mentioned. run-inerlcun Ailvoculcs. To develop this important and popular trade movement many agencies are doing effective work. The Bureau of Amerlean Republics, at Washington, is looking after the ropublics and bringing them into closer touch with each other.

The Natinal Association of Manufactur ers is also doing excellent work in the same direction. The Export Exposition, recently opened In Philadelphia, will, by select exhibits il lustrating the supply and demand, make clear the opportunities in the various American republics and colonies for the extension ot our trade. The Pan American Exposition to be held in Buffalo, in 1901 and weir supported financially, by Its own citizens, the Legislature ot New York, and Congress, will bring the several American nations together un der most favorable auspices, and help in augurate the twenUeth century with a well-timed and well-planned movement in the interest of commerce and the arts of peace. And to supply more adequate trans, portation facilities for the coming intercon tinental trade the Three Americas Rail way, projected by Mr Hintou H. Helper the Governmental survey of. which has Just been completed, will doubtless ?oon be constructed, linking together In commer cial' ties a cordon of republics stretching from the United States to Cape Horn. 'WtiMliiiigrtoii's. Pioneer "Worlc. This article would be Incomplete and un true to history, without an allusion to the valuable pioneer work done by. the city of Washington in promoting the Pan-American movement. In February, 1SSC, seconded by Balti more, it orguniitd a national board to pro mote a permanent exposition of the Three Americas at Washington. At that time 1 there were pending in Congress s.ix diiTer ent bills providing for a conference of American nations, but the importance of the subject was not generally understood, the Administration was unfriendly, and no final action was then tatken. Buf in 18S8, after the exposition board of promotion had conducted a two years' edu cational campaign, by correspondence with governors, mayors, boards of trade. State granges, and others, the national import ance of the movement was clearly demon strated, and Congress,, by a unanimous vote, appropriated $75,000 for the expenses of a conference of American republics. About the same- time, in June, 1383, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House made a favorable and unanimous report on the Three Americas Exposition. In the arguments before the committee by th' board of promotion, its purposes wero con cisely stated as follows: "This is an exposition wish as idea, and ' the idea is greater than the exposition, in that it aims at the establishment of aa SCHLBY IDE A ME Tlie Admiral Receives Light oil tho First Three Decrees The Sue ne at tbe .
