the threat of an invasion of Texan
that makes the situation appear criti

that matters appear to be going from

the snapping point. The peaco -con
ference between representatives of the
Latin-American iStates and this gov

pose of formulating some plan for
settling the Mexican problem appears
to be Mexico's "lost chanco" to save

New Orleans ls engaged in a cam

Just now New Orleans ls, in the
words ot Walter Parker, president of
its Association of Commerce, "clear
ing the decks." It plans to get far
more of thc Mississippi valley's for
eign trade than it has ever had be
fore, especially with Latin America.
For this purpose, it has built a muni
cipal railroad belt line facilitating
and cheapening the switching of cars;
lt ls digging an industrial canal with
ship basins; lc ia erecting big rlver
rail-aceah warehouses. The terminal
facilities aro open to all shippers
al ?ko. And v. nile tho etty ls becom
ing a great shipping centre, it plans
also to become the storage centre for
southern products.
"With low cost storage," says Mr.
Parker, "cheap money and low rated
Insurance at tho gateway of the val

ports moving down the Mississippi
will pass Into Borage In great quan
tities, and be held there until the
foreign onsumors are ready to take
the products. In this way New Or
leans ls preparing to become the
world's surplus supply storage ware
house especially for cotton, a distinc
tion now enjoyed by Liverpool."
Obviously Liverpool-not to men
tion riv?. American port?-will have
to look out for New Orleans.
Referring to the Industrial activi
ties of the South for the week the
Manufacturers Record calls our at
tention to the continued and Increas
ing activities in shipbuilding Inter
ests. A Baltimore shipyard has Just
secured a contract to build two steam
ships for a Norwegian firm at a cost
of 1500,000. and could Immediately
close contracts tor $4,000,000 or 15,
000,000 worth of additional work for
American and foreign ship owners lt
lt had the facilities for taking on ad
ditional work. It la now preparing to
enlarge ita plant tn order to handlo
more business. At Newport News, Va.,
contracts, have been closed for two
more big oil steamships, making five
under construction or contracted tor
at that point, for Ute Standard Oil
Company; while another oil ?teauier
recently damaged by lire ls to be re
paired at u coat of $500,0"0, the total
amount of work now under contract
nt that yord aggregating about $!i.r>0,
000,000, with nearly 6.000 hands em
ployed, yo active is the demand for
shiproom that u Norwegian ship own
er, who came to this country six
weeks ago, recently purchaacd Ave
large American schooners, and ihe
same day chartered them to load lum
ber at Southern ports for the Uttlted
Kingdom, the freight to be paid as
soon as loaded, and the total freight
for the one voyage exceeding by $30,
000 the price paid for the vessels.
Within a few days he sold these five
vesselH, for delivery ti poi,'' arrival lu
Europe, makiug a net profit in the
deal of $100.000. The .crowded eon
ditlon of American shipyards and tiie
aitivitie in shipping and tdilp-huild
Ing is indicated in tho fact that an
Atlantic const company has just let
a contract for a large steamer to be
built on the I'ac I lie coast.
Coincident with this improvement
In 3hlp-building activities there are
..?gus of betterment in railroad financ
ing and construction work. Tho Sea
board Air Line has sold nearly
000,00 worth of bonds to pay for new
roads purchased, extensions to bc
made and to caro for financing for
the next few years. The Southern
Hallway during the week lot contract
for its double-tracking work on its
main line In the Carolinas to the ex
tent of $1,400,000. The Baltimore &
Ohio has contracted for $1.000,000 ?
worth of rails and cars, following con
tracts for $2,500.000 for equipment
made n month ago, and ls now bavin?
planB prepared for a $1,000,000 coal
pier to take caro of Increased coal
exports from Baltimore. The Western
Maryland let contract during the
week for a six-mile extension, at a
cost of about $400,000, to reach new
coal fields.
There has been a marked advance
in the price of oil and reports from
Oklahoma Indicate that the increase
last week added about $11,000,000 to
the value of thc oil now stored in that
State, and at the same time greatly
stimulated the entire Industry.
Notwithstanding the stagnation in
all lndusrial activities during last
summer and fall, following the open
ing of the war In Europe, the im
provement In cotton-mill conditions in
the South has been so pronounced
that the consumption for tho 12
months ending July exceeded by 100,
000 bales tbe consumption of the pre
ceding year, having amounted to 3,-1
160,000 bales, compared with 2.600,- J
000 bales of American cotton consum
ed by all other mills in the United
states. During June the consumption
of cotton in Southern mills reached
300.000 bales, a record figure, which,
If continued during the coming 12
month, would carry the South's con
sumption to 3.600.000 bales.

sa incident that took place many
years ago when another great comet
was visible nightly In the sky. A
well-known astronomer and mathe

through a telescope at the celestial
