Commercial Agent of Bureau
, of Manufactures, ' Depart
' ment of Commerce, Speaks
; Before Local Chamber.
Lotett if. Wood, Commercial agent of
the bureau of manufacture of the de
partment of commerce and labor, at an
informal luncheon at the Multnomah
hotel at noon today .explained to a num.
ber of prominent members of the Port
land chamber of commerce the Impor
tance end magnitude of American com
merce In the orient and possibilities for
market extension across the Pacific.
Mr. Wood, whose home Is In Seattle,
has just returned from a 16 month tour
of the orient his travels extending over
Formosa, Japan, China, Manchuria, east
ern Siberia, the Strait settlement and
the Philippines. The purpose waa to
Investigate and ascertain opportunities
for marketing goods of American man
ufacture In those countries.
- "I found the demand for American
fcoods increasing In the orient," said
Mr. Wood, fcnd there la a remarkable
wakening in the deelre for modern
goods from all foreign nations. Amer
ica has very active competition for
trade in, English, German, French, Bel
gian, Swiss and Australian manufactur
ers. I found that where large American
Interests had American representatives
who had made themselves familiar .with
the peculiar-trade and financial meth
ods, they received a very satisfactory
volume of business and steadily Increas
ing. These representatives, too, are do
ing very valuable work for smaller con
cerns who are not personally. represented
there. I found, however, too much of a
disposition on the part of smaller
American manufacturers depending on
foreign representatives, a method which
for many reasons is not conducive to the
fullest rea'izatlon of the rapid Increase
of orders for foreign goods all-over the
orient. -; ' ' .- .- ; : .
- Must Study Routes.
'"There is a need for American manu
facturers to study not only the increase
developed under the plan of the bureau
of manufactured Id develop foreign
trade, tut to consider the use of foreign
bottom and the time lost In the round
about shipping routes, and to see what
can be done to their profit In the na
tural shortest and safest routes auross
the Pacific ocean. This would give an
additional advantage of not endangering
perishable goods by : the extreme heat
met with In shipping by, way of Euro
pean porta, ? .
"Another important point Is the na
tural advantig ot isn Oriental depot
for distribution to all principal markets
throughout the orient. My. investiga
tions led me to believe that Manila is
the ideal point of dlatrlbntlon, with Oh
added advantage of being American
territory dominated by American laws
a nd America n-4nihiener
"In io y talks to the commercial bod-
lea of the various Pacific coast cities
I have urged that they not only take
active interest In promoting the 4istrl

but give such cordial cooperation and
assistance to the Philippine Islands as
will result . In the future to. the great,
profit of the Pacific coast, as well as
the whole union.
Chinese Ate rriendly.
"i oeueve tne i'niuppines are more
valuable "in a national commercial way,
and will prove more profitable to us
as such, than Alaska has been from
I he date of ita purchase to the present
time, and I believe that thase who ad
vocated abandonment of the Philippines
are farther astray than those who for
eo many, years were convinced that we
shcjld give' Alaska back to Russia.
. The Chinese are very friendly to the
United States, and for many reasons,
one being that a number of Chloese
have been educated In the United States.
I found the Chinese business men hon
est and capable, in fact to such an ex
tent that I regard them aa the best
business men in the world." .
Dr. Wood was in various parts of
China during the rebellion, but declares
he felt as safe as upon hit return to
America, for both factions were very
careful not to molest foreigners.
"Had the missionaries obeyed instruc
tions from their respective consuls, they
would have escaped trouble," explained
Mr. Wood, f- '-rr-rr
Missionaries Doing Good.
'"But instead of getting away from
the scenes of the fighting they re
mained, and in many cases endeavored
to retain leadership. Some consuls went
bo far as to deport missionaries who
were overconfident and Insisted, on re
maining. ' ; .
"Others were just as curious and can
tankerous, and I am not intending at all
to cast any invidious reflections upon
these missionaries, and I will say that
the missionaries; have done a great deal
of good in China In the way of spreadt
Ing European education, and for which
. they are entitled to much credit
' Mr.-Wood says the Chinese are rap
Idly, adopting European style of dress
And methods, and he looks forward to
a time in the very near future when
the Chinese will stand far to the front
among the most progressive and up to
date nations. He says the rebellion will
: have less evil" erf eels commercially In
China than had a revolution of its
magnitude In any other nation.

The cigarette came In for a good lam-

to remedy conditions. He called the

"The teacher can find out If the dot

will be a menace to other children.
Is the cigarette more harmful than

"unless you mix them up with sufferers
