The United States has been made the heart of the world's business by the west ward trend cf commercial affairs and has reached the stage in its in dustrial and commercial develop- men where the maintenance of for eign outlets is necessary to con tinued domestic prosperity. Director R. S. MacElwee of the bureau of foreign and domestic commerce of the department ot commerce. nounced today in his annual report Declaring that the present stag' nation in the business world was only a passing phase insofar as this country was concerned. Director MacElwee urged that the develop ment of foreign markets be taken np with renewed vigor, "Our foreign trade in the fiscal year of 1920, with a total value of $13,349,661,401, was larger than in any previous year," he said. "It ex ceeded by $3,000,000,000 the former high record in 1919, and was more than three times the value of the combined imports and exports in 1914, the last year before the war. "Many people are more interested now than they were a year ago in foreign commerce. : There were a tew firms who had the foresight to take out Ufa insurance while they; were, in good health. Others now wish they, had done so. The only real, insurance that will spread the risks- of depression between 4he crests of the waves of domestic de mand is the alioting of a substan tial quota of the firms product for foreign commerce and the building up in the world's markets of a sell ing organization and clientele that will net necessarily fluctuate with the waves of demand at home. - . Depression After War. . "A depression regularly -follows a great war, and its time of occur ence may be estimated, from his torical analogies, as about two to three years after the close of hos tilities. We are not going to have a panic m the United States, out we certainly feel the kind of reac tion that the surgeons call shock after an operation." To meet the increased demands of business and carry on the work of the bureau of foreign and domestic commerce $1,493,270 was asked of congress for the next fiscal year. That is an increase of more than half a million dollars over the pres ent year's appropriations. Of the total for next year $1,100,000 would be spent for commercial attaches abroad and for the promotion of commerce. 1 It Is proposed to double the num ber of commercial attaches making 24, and to. increase the number of trade commissioners abroad by 17, making a total of 56, while commer cial agents would be tripled with a total of 33. i Estimates include $300,000 for commercial attaches, $500,000 for promoting commerce in general, $150,000 for promoting commerce in Central and South America and I $150,000 for promoting commerce in tne iar east, ine increased appro priations would permit greatly in tensified development of markets for American goods in Latin Amer ica and the far east which are con sidered the most promising fields for American commercial effort at this time, the report stated. Traces Trade. Going back 300 years, Director MacElwee traced the center of com mercial supremacy from Phoenicia westward to London where it bad been since between 1651 and 1700 and said the last war had moved the center of commerce westward again, the predominant interests at the present time being ta the Pacific in addition to the Atlantic. Analy sis show, he said, the reason for the rise of nations that successfully dominated the world's commerce to be that they were situated at the crossroads of transports toin ; that they developed their merchant ma rine and a navy to protect it; that they possessed the raw materials needed to supply the wants of man, and developed the artesans to shape these raw materials into the form in which man could use them. "We are spared out across the ; pains or tne westerly movement in the destiny ot commerce." Director MacElwee said.. "As to natural re sources and the skill of our artes ans, these need no comment De spite high wages. Yankee ingenuity and American ' ability to organize mass production with improved labor-saving machinery have made it posisble for us. for many years, to dominate the world's commerce in such articles as harvesting ma chinery, sewing machines, cash reg isters, typewriters, office supplies. 'automobiles, and many other klda oiaooos. Eastward FAVORS TRADE AGREEMENT TO GET DEBT PAID Longworth Advocates Pact With Allies to Secure 12 BiUion. Washington, Dec 21. (United Press) Reciprocal trade agree ments witn the ailies to aid in the payment of more than $12,000,000, 000 dae the United States govern ment and business interests in this country were advocated in the house today by Representative Nicholas Longworth, Ohio, a mem ber of the ways and means com mittee. , Such agreement he said, should be part of a general revision ot the tariff laws, which he estimated could be made high enough to raise $350,000,000 more than the preseut customs or about $700,000,000. The reciprocal trade agreement ne proposed, would give the allies advantages over other nations in American markets in exchange for similar concessions granted the United States abroad. Attacking free trade proposals, Longworth said: "I do not think that it is quite respectful for the debtor countries to assume that their debts, prop erly and honorably contracted, are not to be paid in full.

Against such a policy the American people have recorded themselves by an emphatic and tremendous majority as I interpret the recent election. "We have received specific In structions with regard to the policy of the protective tariff aa laid down, by President McKinley, but I be lieve it - to be-.

RAILROADS DOKOTEARN 6 PER GENT Receivership Looms for New England Lines Un less Belief Comes. BY DAVID LIWHEKCE. (Special to The Argus.) Washington, Dec. 20. Questions raised by practically all the New England railroads before the inter state commerce commission indi cate that the entire financial policy ot congress toward the railroads ot the whole country as declared in the transportation act may break down unless relief of some kind is immediately forthcoming. Congress plainly said that the railroads ot the country should earn at least 5 to 6 per cent on the value of their property. The New England railroads haVe con fessed before the interstate com merce commission that they are earning nothing as a whole and are insisting that all the other rail roads east of the Mississippi should be compelled to give up at least $25,000,000 in revenue on freight rates to enable the New England lines to meet their deficit But the other railroads, on the other hand, contend that they, too. are failing by many millions to earn the 6 per cent which congress in tended and they claim there isnt going to be any surplus revenue to divide with the New England group of roads, in fact, the eastern rail J roads which include some of the try, have been so hard hit by the sharp decline in freight shipments since October that they contend they are earning less than 5jer cent on the value of their property, and a serious question has been raised as to whether the interstate commerce commission will not find it necessary to award another gen eral increase in freight rates in order to carry out the command of congress that the railroads should get at least 5V4 per cent on their in vestment Bate Increase. The eastern railroads ' have further contended that the New England Mneo -ought to increase (Co&Usaed On Pact Ten.) LANDING OF FATHERS at historic roei m YEARS AGO, ORSERlfEQ MARKHAMSAYS ACT WILL SOLVE RAIL PROBLEM President of Illinois Cen tral Upholds New 1920 Law.- Springfield, 111., Dec 21. Declar ing that the transportation act of 1920 recognizes that the railroads ti .nd t th. Y.ttaie tion, and gives to the interstate commerce commission powers and duties which "will do much to up build the railroad industry," Charles H. Markbam, president of the Illi nois Central railroad, expressed the belief before the Noonday Lunch eon club here today that the act would tend to solve the railroad problems of the country. "We have faith in the transporta tion act" Mr. Markham declared. "The railroads suffered from the war, Inadequate rates, strikes and lack of equipment; but. faced with these obstacles, the railroads ac complished a task that seemed al most miraculous. The supply of transportation now exceeds the de mand for the first time in five years. Pnblle Support. "The predicted business revival of 1921 will make heavy demands on the railroads, but I believe thejent day America he pointed out carriers will be, able to move a larger business than during the last year. But the railways can not sclve their problems without the support of the public. v "Too much regulation by the in terstate commerce commission and not enough protection will ruin many railways. If. the shippers and the carriers take hospital atti tudes we may expect the commis sion to apply the laws haltingly. It there i -a fair degree of co operation, its influence will secure a wise, efficient' and successful ad ministraaion ot the law." SECRETARY AT; RIO DE JANEIRO Colby Hakes Brazilian Port on Bat.
