OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
SOME INTERESTING FACTS AND
FIGURES FROM OUR CONSULAR
Republicans in CaucusPostal Notes-
Route ChangesPersonal ItemsThe
Distillers' Men Looking After Their
Interests, But in the Dark as to the
Result of the Proposed Tax Measures,
Washington, April 16. The current
number of the consular reports, ex
tracts from former numbers which
have been made in this correspondence,
is an unusually interesting document.
At this time when the attention of
American commerce is directed South
ward to the almost unknown regions,
commercially speaking, of South Amer
ica, the reports of consuls in that part
of the world possess much interest.
Consul Baker, stationed at Buenos
Ayres, the capital of the Argentine
Republic, contributes to this number
an interesting article in which he treats
of European vs. American trade meth
ods in that Republic. The foreign com
merce of the Argentine Republic he
says now amounts to about $100,000,000
per annum, the imports being $44,000,
000 and the exports $56,000,000. Of this
amount the countries of Europe have
control of about $80,000,000, the imports
from that continent amounting to $34,'
000,000 and the exports thither reaehing
$46,000,000 annually. The amount of
trade with the United States is now
about $8,000,000 annually, sayN$5,000,000
for exports to and $3,000,000 for imports
from that country, or only about 8 per
cent, of the entire trade.
He attributes the commanding posi
tion which Europe enjoys as a competi
tor for the trade of the Argentine Re
public to three causes, viz: regular
steam communication with Europe
whereby the receipts of merchandise
can be computed to a day ; second, the
fact that mercantile houses there have
branches in the business centres of the
old world, and third, that the English,
Italian and other European nations
have branch banks there which greatly
facilitate exchange and contribute
largely to their success in rapid trans
portation. The value of these banking
institutions to their respective coun
tries Mr. Baker thinks can hardly be
overestimated in a commercial point
of view. An American bank or banks
would, he believes, not only be paying
institutions but would do much to re
vive or establish trade with the United
States. As it now is payments to
Americans are made out on London or
Leaving the subject of banksConsul
Baker comes to treat of the interior
commerce of the country and sheds
such light upon the subject as must
cause surprise to those who have formed
the impression that that far-away coun
try is but semi-civilized. The lumber
ing builock carts have given way to
steamships and railways. Of the form
er some of the vessels are as magniQ
cent in their appointments as are the
palaces that ply upon the Mississippi.
These steamers penetrate the inland by
means of the Uraguay and Parara riv
ers, and make trips even to Matto Groso.
Brazil. During 1SS0 the foreign and
domestic commerce of the Republic
amounted to 4,198,030 tons, over one
half being employed in the interior
navigation of the country. Of the ton
age so employed 84 3 per cent, was un
der the Argentine Hag; 7.4 percent, un
der the Euglish flag; 1.7 per cent, under
the Paraguayan flag; 1.4 per cent, un
der the Uraguayan flag; 1 per cent, un
der the Italian flag, and 4.2 per cent,
under the flags of other nations.
England and Italy here figure in the
commerce of a sister republic, but the
Stars and Stripes float not over a single
vessel. Nine railroads, aggregating
1,500 miles m extent and mostly center
ing at Buenos Ayres, also form no in
considerable part of the means em
ployed in the transportation of the in
land commerce of the country. These
roads are rapidly extending in all di
rections under the fostering care of
the national government.
Vice Consul Henrique, at Rio Ilacha,
United States of Colombia, reports
that commerce with the United States
is on the increase.
Owing to the complete want of the
few agricultural products of the coun
try, several American schooners pro
ceeding from New York, and loaded
with provisions, have visited this port.
American provisions have been intro
duced via Curacoa.
The custom house returns show the
value of imports for the fiscal year to
amount to $324,364, of which there
were American goods imported to the
amount of $106,000.
The value of exports for the same
time was $502,851, and invoices have
been certified in this consulate for the
sum of $212,105.58 destined to New
York. To this sum should be added
$18,000 worth of products exported via
Curacoa to the same port in the United
At Para, Brazil, Consul Backu3 re
marks that the statistics are not as re
liable as he would like.
The duties received on imports in
1879 were $1,750,114.53. The duties re
ceived on the imports in 1880 were
$1,499,873.08. By comparing the duties
received on imports during the year
1879 and the duties received in 1880, it
is seen there i3 a balance in favor of
1879 of $250,240.85.
The duties on exports in 1879 were
$876,617.60; the duties on exports in
1880 were $828,553.18, showing a balance
in favor of 1879 of $48,064.42.
The total tonnage of American ves
sels entering this port during the year
1879 was 95,969; during 1880 was 92,642,
showing a decrease of 3,327 tons.
Business for the last year has been
considered very good among all classes,
produce of all kinds being in abund
ance, and bringing fair prices.
Trade between the United States and
this port of Brazel is undoubtedly on
the increase, but is to a great extent
done through the medium of English,
French, Portuguese and German
The consul cannot understand why
the United States should not be better
represented among business houses in
this city. , , t
In 188Q there was bought $6,847,
302.70 worth of produce in this pro
vince. There was sold a large amount
of manufactured goods, an immense
amount of flour, kerosene, a very small
part of which was imported by Ameri-
CaAfter referring to the fact that there
is a much greater demand for Ameri
can than English goods at Chin-Kiang,
Asia, Consul Smithers shows up some
of the means employed by our English
cousins to drive American manufac
tures out of the market. He says :
"The increased demand for American
cottons has undoubtedly incited unprin
cipled dealers to introduce a low class
of English goods marked as American.
Circulars have been received at this
port during the present year offering to
supply any brand of American goods,
with their distinguishing trade-marks,

can marks, recently reached this port
from Shanghai, and was forwarded to
the inferior under transit pass.' Should
this practice be continued, it cannot
but be detrimental to American trade,
for the ignorant consumer will be in
many instances decived in the Durchase
of a different kind of goods to that

be brought to the notice of the Com
missioner of Customs, with the view of
having, if possible, all goods bearing
fraudulent marks returned to the coun
try of their production."
In view of the veto of the Chinese
bill, will this predeliction of American
goods continue ?
Consul-General Merritt, of London,
England, in a highly important report
on British exports to the United States,
goes into many interesting detals. For
the fiscal year ended September, 1881, it

The Republicans had a caucus Friday

what kept them engaged so long but it is.
known now. It will be remembered
that several weeks ago they threatened
to change the rules of the House so
they would deprive the minority of the
few rights they now possess. A rule
to that effect was reported, but as the
Democrats gave notice thatthey would
filibuster until the end of the session,
and as the Republicans had not the
numerical strength to force it down
their throats they desisted. The rule
in question they intend to change is
one that places bills on the calendar and
brings them to the attention of the
House in the order they stand. The
Republicans want the rule so etraaged
that the majority can pick out any bill
they desire, thus passing over bills that
are evidently deserving- and;jusfr :In
this way, with a majority of th& House,
they can prevent any bill frorii being
taken off the calendar. It was there
fore decided in caucus, that as soon as
they put out the Democrats now-holding
seats which are contested, . they
would force this rule down the throats
of the minority. The men to, be put
out include Dibble, of South Carolina ;
Chalmers, of Mississippi; Wheeler, of
Alabama and others. When the mat
ter comes up it is expected a fight equal

Dropping in at the Ebbitt House, a
popular resort of statesmen and others,
'o day, I found some of the others.
'1 nere were Dr. Rush, of Chicago, secre
i ry of the distillers national associa
tion ; Mr. C. H. Kellogg, a heavy Cin
cinnati distiller; Charley Mills, a Ken
tucky distiller, who lives at Cincinnati ;
andMr.Wm. Henry Smith, an Indiana
distiller, with headquarters also at the
Queen City. Near by sat Collector
Wilson, of the Louisville district, whose
head the executive is now trying to re
move, having appointed Col. Buckner
in his stead. Seeing so much whiskey
talent congregated in such locality led
me to suspect that some movement
must be on foot for the good or other
wise of the order, and I immediately
made inquiry. Inquiring of Mr. Kel
logg I was referred to Dr. Rush, who
Mr. Kellogg assured me to be always
full of information, so much so that
you have but to question hint and the
facts are forthcoming, so I asked him
"What the formidable gathering meant,
ana received lor reply the information
that the bill extending the bonded pe
riod on distilled spirits was likely to
"come up in the Senate soon, and that
the distillers naturally feeling anxious
about it had thought it proper to be on
1 md to see that it is fairly treated.
"Do you anticipate any opposition to

"You can't tell about those things.
Yes, I presume it may meet with some
opposition. It did in the Hoose,-you
know ; Mr. White of Kentucky opposed
"You don't think the opposition likely
to be so great as to endanger its pass
age?" "Well, I hope not; in fact I may say
I presume not. I think the bill will
pass and will become a law."
"Do you look for any more legislation
on the subject this season, doctor?"
"Can't say, as to that. It's not impos
sible, however. Yet I don't know that
there will be."
"You don't anticipate any reduction
iu the tax do you?"
"Well, we hardly expect any. Yet it
is not improbable the question may be
agitated and possibly may yet come to a
voting point in some vfay. There are
many Republicans not pleased withjhe
caucus dictation in the matter."
"Yes," chimed in Mr. Mills, of Cincin
nati, "for a handful of Republicans, less
than a hundred of them, to have gotten
together in caucus and by an agree
ment of that sort controlled and con
tinue to control the action of the party,
and the action of the country on so im
portant a subject don't seem to have
been exactly the thing. Then we were
asking nothing unreasonable and noth
ing that would have been anything but
good to the community. Everything
we have asked and obtained thus far
has resulted in great increase of the
volume of this manufacturing inter
"Yes, indeed. For instance the man
ufacture of whisky has grown from
less than a million gallons per annum
eight years ago to sixteen million gal
lons per year, and is still increasing. By
this we proposed a plan by which the
whiskey manufactured may be held un
til it ripens and comes of good quality
by the natural process, instead of being
"aged" artificially as it must be now.
Whiskey really ought to be five or six
years old before it is used for drink
ing purples, while at present most of
What becomes of the sixteen million
gallons er year made, Mr. Mills? Is
the country consuming so much more
whisky than it used to ?"
"A great deal is being held for this
very improvement by age, of which I
am speaking. There are. between fatty and
sixty million gallons of whisky held in
bonded warehouses now, and this
amount Will ddubtless increase largely
ir the bill extending the bonded period
is passed." y
"Yes. Then beside this quantity now
being held a large amount has been
shipped abroad during the past four
years. Several millions of bushels of
corn are annually iurnisnea a market
abroad in this form, and the money has
come back here for distribution among
the corn growers of the country."
Turning from the abstract question
of whisky manufacture to the more re
alistic one of office-holding, I asked Col.
Wilson, of Louisville, if he was going
to be able to hold on to his collector
ship and defeat Buckner's nomination.
