In view of tbe possibilities of in creasing our trade with the United State 3 arising out of the operation of the new American tariff and the open iog of the Panama Canal, the Prime Minister's announcement that tbe Government bas deckled to spend £15,000 in making an attractive dis lay of our products at the Panama Exhibition will meet with genera! approval. It is certainly an opportune time for bringing our resources in as striking a manner as possible uuder the notice of the people of the United Btatea and the foreign visitors to tbe great show, and it is to be hoped that our exhibit will bean impressive and Characteristic one in every way worthy of v tbe Dominion. It is true that Great Britian baa fo far declined to be officially but that need not concern us, and in any case a'strong effort is being made to induce the British Government to change its mind in this matter. Many people think that now ttiat the Panama tolls quesfcoin appears likely to be settled in in a manner favourable to Britian, and

in view of the ccming celebration of! the hundred years' peace, it would be \ a pity to give grounlfor any ill-feel i ing by refusing to send a British ex hibit. Although tie Imperial Govern roent ba l ? made it quite clear that its | decision has no puiiuca! signiiicaMce, it I is still felt, that Bntian's action in ! standing aloof would be liable to rai3 construction and might be tha cause of : some soreness. By the expenditure ; of £1.5,000 New Zealand ought to b.- ; able t) make a very fair display which j should be a really good advertisement j for our products, and may be the ; means of opening up new avenue of i trade. The Panama Canal will ctiusc- : great changes in the maritime routes of' the would, and may result in a con ; siderable iilterations in the commercial rein!ions between various countries. New Z aland should, therefore make ; u-e of every opportunity at the present, jiiDCture of profiting by the new era j which Ihe opening of the caoal is expteed to introduce. ■
