and they did strange things. For
instance, President Wilson, a staunch
Presbyterian, had accepted an in
vitation to attend mass In a Roman
Catholic church. He wondered what
the President's Puritan ancestors
would have thought of this. He
spoke of the Irishman who became
an American, and of his tendency to
become a ruler. The Irishman was
a born politician, and whether ho
was a policeman or a legislator he
dominated. He paid a great tribute?
to Abraham Lincoln, proclaiming
him ono of the greatest Americans
who ever lived. Tho Jews, he said,
became thorough Americans In a
remarkably short time, and he cited
tho men of Jewish origin who had
been great In the annals of Ameri
can history. In the realm of re
ligious thought he said that Felix
Adler and Robert Ingersoll wero
men of great power and ability. Tho
truth of the matter was that this na
tion was made up of all nationali
ties. As Zangwill had characterized
it, this country Is a melting pot in
which all types are amalgamated to
produce the true American.
Lending Address by Former Hones
Mr. Dorilinger then said he would
call upon a gentleman who knew all
about South America. If there v.as
anybody in tho room who had a
brother-in-law living with him and
doing no work, W. M. Benney, a
member of the National Manufac
turers Association, would tell him
what part of South America hnd the
greatest mortality, so that the
brother-in-law could bo sent to that
particular section. Mr. Benny spoke
Perhaps the reason why I have
been asked to speak on trade with
South America is the near approach
to completion of that stupendous
work of this nation which far out
ranks In magnitude and prospective
usefulness the historic seven won
ders of che world the Panama Ca
nal. In tho minds of some enthusiasts
tho opening of the Canal appears to
mean a sudden expansion of our ex
port trade and the diversion to our
shores and factories of a profitable
share of the orders which now go to
tho merchants and manufacturers of
It Is not belittling the value of the
great Canal to say that I believe all
will bo disappointed who look for
Immediate and important changes
in the ' development of our export
trade with South America as a result
of its opening.
It is true the Canal will greatly
facilitate shipments to the countries
of the West Coast of the South
American continent. But thoso coun
tries contain only one-quarter of the
fifty millions of people of South
America, and that small proportion '
of the Inhabitants in largely compos
ed of native Indian tribes still in a
very backward state of dovolopment, 1
and consequently small consumers
of foreign manufactured products.
With the exception of Chile, the
people of the West Coast countries
aro far less progressive tnan tne
leading people of the East Coast. 1
It is in the countries of tho eastern
part of South America where the
greatest development of natural re
sources is taking place and where
the most rapidly-growing markets
will be found.
But whatever may be tho immdei
ate results of the opening of the Pa
nama Canal they can be no doubt of
tho great possibilities of develop
ment of an already valuable and
growing trade with South America.
With an area not far short of that
of the North American continent,
tho area capable of profitable de
velopment under present conditions
is even greater than that of North
America. Its mineral wealth Is vast
and as yet scarcely touched.
The forest wealth of South Amer
ica is beyond our present powers of
computation, and yet that continent
is the leading market for some of our
Wo all know how largely the
world has been dependent on South
America up to the present time for
its supplies of rubber, fertilizers,
chocolate and coffee. Argentina, like
Canada, is becoming a constantly
growing factor in providing the man
ufacturing countries with grain and
meat. Shipments of tho latter from
Argentina have already appeared at
our own ports.
The requirements of South Ameri
ca at the present time are similar
to those of our Western States two
generations ago namely, judicious
ly-invested capital and the continu
ous inllux of hard-working immi
grants. Both of these factors are be
ing supplied in large measure by
European countries to Argentina,
Uruguay, and Southern Brazil, and
In a lesser degree to Chile. Much of
this capital is invested in railways,
and we all know that tho develop
ment of railroad transportation fa
cilities ultimately means the de
velopment of agricultural, forest and
industrial resources in proportion to
tho energy and intelligence of tho
population for whose welfare these
facilities aro provided.
Now, while I have spoken of the
population of the West Coast of
South America as largely composed
of Indians in a still undeveloped
state of civilization, and while it is
also true that a very large proportion
of tho inhabitants of all of the
northern and tropical countries of
the continent are also of Indian
blood, nevertheless the consuming
capacity of' fifty millions of people
of all classes is enormous, and the
energy and capacity of tho descend
ants of the Spanish and Portugese
peoples, who dominate nearly every
part of the continent, is splendidly
displayed in the southern half and
those sections where tho climate is
conducive to sustained mental and
We havo made great strides in our
export trade with' South America in
tho past ton years. With, all of Latin
America recent figures show that
growth in the valuo of exports from
this country has increased 183 per
cent, in this period.
To Argentina alono at tho present
time we are sending four times as
much goods as we did in 1903; to
Brazil nearly four times as much,
and to Chile about tour times as
This seems a notable Increase, but
when we bear in mind that our per
centage proportion of tho total im
ports of the countries of South
America is only about the same that
it was ten years ago, it will bo seen
that our European competitors still
havo the great bulk of the import
trade of tho southern continent.
Of the one billion dollars' worth
of goods imprted into South Amerl
ca at the present timo our propor
tion is about fifteen per cent. I do
not, as some seem to do, look upon
this small percentage as a reflection
on the energy and enterprise of the
American manufacturer. As manu
facturers we have found In our own
country a market growing so fast
that at times It has sorely taxed all
our energies and resources to keep
up with. Nevertheless, wo havo de
veloped an export trade, which, in
total volume to all countries, is now
nearly equal to that of tho greatest
exporting country of tho world,
namely, tho United Kingdom, our to
tal exports In 1912 being $2,303,
000,000, those of the United King
dom $2,372,000,000, and those of
While it is true that a larger pro
portion of our exports consist of raw
material than those of tho other na
tions mentioned, nevertheless our ex
ports of manufactured products are
rapidly increasing, until at the pres
ent time, if we Include manufactured
and partly manufactured foodstuffs,
they comprise about two-thirds of
our total exports.
But now tho genius of our manu
facturers has so developed our own
