Iarson appeared to plead to

to an announcement of counsel
for Larson that demurrers would
be filed in many of the charges
and that arguments on each

SANTIAGO, March 30. The
South American countries will be
commercial clients of ihe I'nited
States so long as '.hey are not able
to avail themselves of more ad
vantageous markets, hays the
newspaper .ritintas Noticlas' In an
editorial in which it asserts Am

The paper says the war permit
ted the I'nited States to enter in
to commercial relations with the
South Americans who "by force of
necessity were obliged to accept
America's strange systems, dia
T4te4lly opposeu to those that
had been used by the great pro
ducing nations cf the old world."
It Is well known, the pal,er de
clares. that the methods employed
by the North American exporter
differ notably from those fol
lowed by the exporters of Great
Britain and above all by Ger
many. "The American goods apart
from being ordinarily of inTerioi
quality are costly," the paper
adds, "and In addition the goods
are badly packed. This results
In heavy losses. Moreover, the
Americans do not concede credit
and If they do concede credit it is
on terms little acceptable."

charges of inferiority in American
merchandise, a writer in the news

Answering the newspaper's as
sertion that American export
methods are entirely ditlerent
from those employed by the Euro,
peans, the ;"Chilean merchant"
savs there are two reasons for
this: first, because the Europeans
have demonstrated that their sys

foundations, resulting largely in
beavv losses through bad arrange

thinks the period of long term

"What occurred in Chile before

arrive and set up a business with,
say, 20,0o pesos. He then re
ceived visits from the salesmen of
European firms who would deliver
him merchandise. At the end ot
two years he would have a credit
with these houses for more than
200,000 jiesos. At the end of an
other year he had declared bank

the European creditors."

Americans always have extended

PHILADELPHIA, March 30.
Dugouts on the sides of hills or
in embankments along the roads
compose the only homes of thou

agents of the American Friends
Service committee who iare dis
tributing American and other aid
in that war-devastated country.
In the Tarnopol district, in Ga
lician Poland over which terri
tory the hurricane of war swept
a dozen times. 2800 families are
living in such dugouts, writes
Harry Stevens, an English Friend
who is working in Poland.
He describes the land as seamed
with trenches and disfigured by
vast quantities of barbed wire.
Hundreds of people are reported
to be dying from starvation, cold
and disease. They have neither
live stock nor farming , imple
ments. Their land was overrun
by Russians. Austrians,. Prussians,
Turks and Bulgarians in tire
world war and afterward by the
Ukrainians and Bolshevik!. All
horses, cattle, poultry, farm tools
everything was taken. The
timber was cut down, their houses
turned and evn school buildings
Describing the miserable con
ditions of thousands of refugees
from Russia, some of whom have
walked thousands of miles to
reach their homes iiv-ahat is now
Poland, Mr. Stevens wrote:
"Their clothing was pitiful to
behold; scarecrows can boast of
Detter. They wore home-made
boots of plaited straw and an out
er garment too thin and ragged,
to be patched. We -asked them
what they would do this winter
and the answer was a -shake of

Mr. Stevens found the refugees
living in dugouts. Six pefsons
with their stoves and household
goods were "crowded Into a hole
in the ground measuring 11 by 3
feet. A man and his wife were

They intended to build their home

Emphasizing the need of relief
in Poland, Frederick J. Libby
writes: 'Crowded into huts and

cabbage and black bread that is
made of everything but flour;
children clad for winter ip the

they are predestined to furnish
