STORY TOKNOX TRIP
(liy Kobert Combton.)
"Washington I). C Feb. 20. Be-
rlin! the proposed trip of Secretary
o. sate Knox to Central America
Is the bissest commercial move of
the century. While President Taft
iuis given it out that hib'secretary
ot state will ko "to cement closer
diplomatic relations" with our neigh-
bors in Latin America it is a fact
that the real purpose of the trip is
to learn the ways and means of cap-
turin? the bulk of that immense
trade that now goes to Kurope. In-
asmuch as diplomacy and commerce
walk hand in hand Mr. Knox will
attempt to apply the principles of
his "dollar diplomacy" to a situ-
ation that has long been a source
of deep concern to American busi-
Sir.ce the awakonins of this new
era of "commercial America" our
manufacturers have realized that def-
inite and persistent efforts must lie
made to divert the . South American
Trade from England and Germany
our most formidable competitors to
I he Viiited States. Our business
men are hungry for it but Kurope
pets it. Millions of money flow back
."lid forth annually between the (-outlines
of Kurope and Latin America
in Import and export trade and hard
ly enough of it comes here to make
Tlie Vnited States a real factor it:
tuo deal. It is a lamentable fact
that today diafu on South Amei'ic;n
merchants from this country return
by way of London and Hamburg In-
stead of bsing exchanged through
American banks. Whether this is dm
to lack of faith in our systems and
methods or not it is one phase ot
the commercial situation in need of
The building of the Panama Canal
-a :1V)0iin000 investment is anoth-
er reason for the Knox effort to ti.-;
s closer commercially to South
America. If this is not done met-
chants and manufacturers of our At-
lantic and Pacific seaboard cities say
ihe real benefits of that gigantiJ
undertaking will be lost. In short.
OF TIE NATION
we will have builded largely for
the icnel'it of Kurope.
It was to give ihe I'nited States
a commanding position in this Latin
American trade lield that the Hureau
of Ameiican Republics was I'onnded
and a 1."u0im(' home erected for It
nere. To make this possible A mire v
Cawgie eon.rlivited $7.".0f.no and
tlie South American republics includ-
ed in the union supplied the rest.
The Ironmaster foresaw the possi-
bilities of this immense trade ami
he paved the way for the .mricn
business man to follow. While Ihis
hurt an has done great service In fos-
tering closer trade relations the
wheels have ground toe slowly to sn't
Ihe impatience of our business men.
Therefore they have brought pres-
sure on th Taft nmnliiNtrat Ion o
undertake this big "missionary work."
Tliis is tlie real "inside" story of why
Mr. KhTix will spend five week
among our neighbors bordering the
Caribbean Sea and flulf of Mexico.
Tlie results will be watched wPti
deep concern and the benefits it is
hoped will be widespread.
