confidently expected that in case the project iU owrJed through to successful ex et HOur toieign trade will be jratly+ stimulated It is believed that the nations who are to be ap jwwcked with a view to being par tiM to the arrangement willreadily give their acquiescence The Plan will be proposed in Mr Paynes annual report The present rate is five cents per half uunction letters to foreign conn trios save Canada and Mexico between which and thife country the saBie postage rates are applied as are imposed on all mail within this country It is proposed to put the governments of England Ger ninny and France on the same footing In view of the greatly increased volume of postal business and the number of commercial transactions between this country and Europe the foreign rate is held tube entirely disproportionate to the domestic rate and seryes as a detriment to the business inter ests of the country Mr Payne believes reduction in postal rates not only would prove a great benefit to the business interests of the country but result in sufficiently large business to make up in the find for the loss ofrevenue This has been the experience of the United States in the reciprocal ar rangements made with the two ansouthernEt will have to be carried through by conventions with the other coun tries mentioned So soon as the assent of congress is secured Ger many England and France

ROSEDALE ISTHMAN CANAL ADVAN ITAGES VAST FIELDS Ob TRADE The importance of the isthmian canal for the development of our trade wit tropical countries and in directions where other countries now have an advantage cannot be overestimated A distinctive feature of our import trade has been the great increase in our purchase of the products of tropical and subtropical1 countries These imports now comprise more than one third of the total of our whole import trade They are made up of supplies of coffee sugar fruits nuts and other articles of food also iin raw material for manufacture of raw silk vegetable fibre and India rubber with divers other articles It is to be noticed that among this increaso of im ports from those countries there has not been a corresponding increase of exports J One great Held for the development of exports from New Orleans and the ports of the gulf is in this direction While exports to European countries skew a very large balance in our favcr J imports from tropical countries show a J very great balance against tis Notk ing would so promote the increase otl 1 our trade with these tropical countries 1 as the coustructicon of an isthmian I cisial It would also make available the easternly countries of Asia China and Japan and the great area included yJ In tht islands of the Pacific Our trade with China at present seems trivial only a little over twenty millions of exports but they are be ginning to use our food products and when this groat empire with its enOlImous population breaks over the balIriers created by tradition and prejudice mad establishes trade relations with thec rest of tke world it will be like the taming of the pentup waters of theIIj flood For this ehaege which may eome atta early date this country should be ready and
