"Washington, Nov. 3. Predictions
that ships flying the American flag
will almost equal the tonnage of Great
Britain by the end of 1920, were made
in the aenate today by Senator Jones,
Republican of "Washington, chairman
of the senate commerce committee, in
introducing his bills proposing alterna

Jones said, the United States Includ

nearly that of Great Britain and he
added, the two nations will control

TN discussing the Standard Oil
A Company, a well-known lawyer
said: "The underlying causes of
whatever trouble this organization
may have had are to be found in its
efficiency and its advanced methods,
which make competition difficult
As a producer and distributor of -petroleum
products the Standard
Oil Company leads the world."
It is a matter of pride, to those re
sponsible to the 4649 stockholders
that the Standard Oil Company
(Indiana) has been able to so ODerate
its business as to insure a maximum
production of useful products at a
minimum of cost, and it has' al
ways been the policy of the Com
pany to sell its products to the
consumer at a minimum price.
During the past five years when
the industries of the world have
been disorganized by war, and the
cost of production has been in
creased tremendously, the Stand
ard Oil Company (Indiana) by
reason of its advanced methods has
been able to keep the price , of
petroleum products at so low a
point that the people of America
can afford to use the output of the
Company in even increasing quan
tities, while elsewhere in the world
only the wealthy can enjoy the
comforts of these commodities.
This condition has been brought
about by largely increased facil
ities, and by careful conservation
of raw materials.
Thus, in spite of tremendous in
creases in cost of crude oil and
labor, the Standard Oil Company
(Indiana) has been able to fulfill its
obligations in a manner satisfactory t
and beneficial to the stockholder,

"VV may differ about government
ownership." he said, "but that can be
no issue here. The government owns

with private established lines. Senator
Jones said in conclusion:
"What. I propose is to divorce the
shipping board entirely from building,
selling or operating ships and allow it
to do the things it was created to do,
and create a corporation separate and
independent of it to operate, maintain
and dispose of our ships in such a way
as to give us an adequate mighty ma
