UfRlnfr Councils to pass, with all haste,
the proposed $11,700,000 loan. This, U.
labor organization contends, will aid in
maintaining tho business prosperity of
the city.
It was pointed out that tho city,
to maintain or Increase Its activity
In the trado world, must spend large
sums of money In order to introduce
Roods manufactured horn to merchants In
other countries. The money, If raised,
will bo distributed equally between the
tno organisations for the purpose of
sending eoloys to foreign countries, tf
the funds are obtained a Mgoroua cam
paign will be launched to advertlso this
city In all sections of the world.
A notion from the national headquar
ters of the American Federation of Labor
was read during the meeting, urging the
various bodies ofllllated with tho central
body to choose delegates to represent
them at the national convention of labor
organizations to be held In Horticultural
Hall for two weeks, beginning Novem
ber 9.
Reports were read showing that the
movement to unlonUo Philadelphia by
the Labor Torward Committee had
proved very successful This Is the only
city In the country thnt did not have a
falling off In membership during the past
year. It Is expected that 50.CV0 men will
nttlllnte themselves with labor organiza
tions In Phil idelphln before the conven
ing of thi' national r omentum Mas-tnt-etlngfl
of teamsters, barbers and bar
tnnders were held In various sections of
itv (-t,Mi1nv for that purpose.
COPHNIIAOKN. Sept. 1.1 -An extraor.
dlnary session of the Gorman Chamber of
Commerce In this city has been called for
Tuesday, at which a resolution will bo put
forward to the effect that relations be
tween Germany and the world of com
merco ohall endure until Germany Is

Congiess Iieatlers Advocate Reduction
of Present Rnto on Mails.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 13 -As n. further
stimulus to the commerco between the
United States and South America, It Is
proposed by Congress leaders who spe
cialize In postal matters that steps be
taken to obtain a 2-ceiit postage rate to
those, countries that will consent to
an arrangement of this chat actor. It
requires at present a B-ccnt stamp to
carry a letter to South America, and the
argument Is being presented that It would
be a long stride townnl a closer commer
cial relationship If that part of the world
could be placed on tho same basis with
respect to mall charges as Is now enloyed
by England. Germanj , Canada, Mexico
and Panama,
Ileprcsentatlve James T. Lloyd, of Mis
souri, for many years a. member of the
House Postofllco Committee and a close
rtttdent of postal nffalrs, today said that
thero was a general sentiment nmong
members of the House and Senate In fa
vor of this proposed reduced postag"
The change would Involve a series of
postal treaties to bo negotiated between
thp t'nlted Stntes and each of the coun
tries which are willing to enter Into the
new arrangement. These treaties would
bo made In behnlf of the United States
by tho Postmnster General and would be
similar to those now existing between
this country nml those with which the
two-cent rate now applies.
The postal arrangements with the South
American nations ale the result of this
rountn's connection with the Universal
Postal Union. To countries nutsldo the
Union the first class postage rate Is 20
cents nn ounce.
A l.-ilnt resolution, tho adoption of which
would Indicate the sentiment of Congress
on the question of lower rate, Is contem
plated n- some of tho leaders

a special committee of tho Senate Com
missions which has been Investigating tho

The committee attributes tho falling off
in the traillc to recent Investigations,

"there Is no reason why the smuggling of
drugs Into a prison should not bo stopped,
except In lore Instances. The question Is
one of efficient administration."

Tho coincidence of the war and the
opening of the' Panama Canal gives the
United Stales n chance to double Its
tinde with Australia and New Zealand
according to Dr. Albert A. Snowdcn, for
eign trado commissioner for the National
Association of Manufacturers. The na
tions of Germany, Prance, Austria, Hoi
glum, Italy, Holland and Swltrerland,
which In 1912 supplied Australia with
goods worth (07,447,600 and New JtaiHmi
with goods Worth 15.489.&S0, are praeli
cally prevented by mobilizations or actual
military operation from produclhg com
modities for cxpoit.
Doctor Snowdcn says that the united
Stales can fill practically all of tifc,.
