FOR ENCROACHING ON HER MARKETS. ■Washington, Jan. 17.—'Argentina, which bought from the United States $•>0,000,000 worth of agricultural im plements, automobiles, sewing mach ines, elevators, typewriters and other manufacturers during, the year just ended, may engage in a disastrous commercial war with the United states, as indicated in vigorous edi torials appearing In the leading pa pers of: iBuenos Ayres, reports ot which have just reached the state de partment. Curiously enough the anger of Ar gentina is not due to any direct act ot illiis country, but to a loophole In the Brazilian tariff which provides for a special differential in imports of wheat flour. This uitference enables the United States to compete with Argentina in the Brazilian wheat flour market and inasmuch as the agricul tural territory in Argentina Is being expanded yearly, the question of a market for its products is becoming a serious question. Argentina may. It is pointed out. close her markets to the United States by making deferential* in fav, or of Croat Britain, Germany and other nations unless this country witlhdraws, in large part at least, from the Brazilian flour market which Argentina considers her own by right of close proximity. The state department has not de elded on a definite line of action. EL DORADO GIVEN UP.
