WASHINGTON, i Dec 3. - President
Taft's first message to the last session
of congress In his term was received with
close attention, of both branches when
legislative business began today. Dealing;
entirely with foreign relations and Amerl.
ea's commercial progress in foreign trade,
the message paved the way for others the
chief executive will send later dealing
with the biff questions of legislation and
A note of warning Jo power which by
'ndlrect mentis continue to discriminate
'.Igainst American trade; a strong appeal
to the congress to uplift the great for
eign policies of America above mere
questions of partisanship; a triumphant
vindication of ho diplomacy of the ad
ministration, which is characterized as
that of "dollar versus bullet"; a
masterful pride Jn the 'enormous expan
sion of American trade as a result of
the foreign policies of his administration,
and an earnest appeal for Joint action by
congress and the executive to open new
markets for American industries these
are the more striking features of tho
Flrat of ui Merlon, I
The message is tho first of a series of
such communications which he will mako
to congress in tho early days of the
aeislon, and deals entirely with tho for
eign relations of the United States. He
ginning with the usual reference to the
existing good relations with foreign
powers, the president adds htat these
have been strengthened by "A greater
insistence upon justlco to American
citizens, or interests, wherever It may
have been denied, and a stronger Am
phasis of the need of mutuality in com
mercial and other relations."
orjthe'' first" time In "Ha'tilstory, says
the presidents the- State aepartmen't jms
obtained substantially tho most favored
nation treatment from all of the coun
tries of the world. Therefore, he says
that it Is only- natural that competitive
countries should view with some con
cern the expansion of our commerce.
Hence the warning. "If In some In
stances the measures taken by them to
meet it are hot entirely equitable, a
remedy should ba found."
To this end. the president strongly
recommends the enactment of the bill
recommended by Secretary Knox last
December, permitting tho government,
instead of Imposing the full maximum
rates of duty agalnut discriminating
countries, to apply a graduated scale of
duties, up to that maximum of 15 par
"Mat tariffs are out of date," says the
president. "Nations no longer accord
equal tariff treatment to all other na
tions, Irrespective of the treatment from
them received. It Is very yieces
Hary that the American government
should be equipped with weapons of
negotiation and adapted to modern
The State department, "an archaic and
Inadequate machine," at the beglnlng of
this administration, the preseldent says,
has become a new organization, with
highly specialized bureaus and experts
dealing with every phase of tAmerJcan
trade and diplomacy. Holding that tluj.
essence of this reorganized service Is
found In the merit system. President Talft
makes a strong appeal to congress o
make this machine permanent, by giving
the force of statutory law to the ex
ecutive orders governing admission to
and promotion In the diplomatic and con
To show that these appointments are
already largely nonpartisan, the president
points to the fact that three of the
present ambassadors are hold-overs; that
of the ten he has appointed, five were by
promotion from the rank of minister,
that of the thirty ministers appointed,
I'leven were promotions, and Hiat in the
consular service no less than. 53 per cent
of the "consuls appointed by him were
from the southern states.
"The diplomacy of the present uMmlnts.
tration has sought to respond to modern
deas of commercial Intercourse," says
President Taft. "This policy has been
"haracterlzed as substituting dollars for
bullets. It Is one that appeals alike 'to
deallastic humanitarian sentiments, to
tie dictates of sound policy and strategy.
nd to legitimate commercial aims."
The president adds that "because mod
rn diplomacy is commercial, there has
been a disposition in some quarters to

to tho attainment of nil agreement.
"At the first session iho Turks abso
lutely refused to surrender Adrlnnople,
hut when the Hulgarians finally yielded
to them on this point, the Greek dele
gates shrank back and demanded tluio lit
which to submit the question to the gov
ernment at Athens,
The rason for the Greek's objection to
such submission Is not far to seek, ac
cording to (diplomats. It is pointed out
that It Is obvious that If tho Hulgarians
sacrifice the ultimate possession ot
Adrlanopln In the interests ot general
peace, thoy will expect their allies to
share their sacrifice nnd tho only way In
which this ran bo dono Is to give llul-
,l,arlu compensation in the slmpo ot ter
ritory conquered by the Clrceks, Servians
and Montenegrins and which they staked
out for themselves. Hence "the wall from
Athens that any concessions to Turkey
