Sir Edward Grey has just won a

It's the regular English comedy.
And the schemers who have recently
suffered rebuff will pluck up spirit and
entertain again the delusion that Eng
land is "dead easy."
Fortunately for England Sir Edward
Grey will remain foreign minister
Both Asquith and Lloyd-George are
strong men. And if the unionists were
to come into power, Lansdowne would
succeed Grey, and law and the Cham
berlainites, as well as the Cecils, would
support a firm foreign policy.
The English can be trusted to make
themselves ridiculous in peace, but
they will be granite in a real crisis.
Union W«ek of Prayer Cemss te at*
After Most Sueoesstal
Gatherings Each Night.
The union week of prayeer, in the
Fargo churches came to an end last
night after most successful gatherings
in th© various churches where the
meetings were held. All the ministers
who united in the effort were well
pleased with the result
The meeting last night was held at
the Broadway Methodist church and
President Creegan of Fargo college was
the speaker. He held the closest at
tention of his listeners and his ad
dress was one of the best he has de
livered since has been in the city.
The union services were a sort of
preliminary skirmish for the Billy
Sunday campaign and it is thought
much interest was aroused in all the
church-going public in regard to the
great baseball evangelist.

To a reporter *be said just before
Philadelphia Ledger: A steamship
which has just arrived at Seward,
Alaska, reports that Bogoslof, an active
volcano in the chain of the Aleutian
islands, is sending out vast clouds of
smoke, which are doubtless indicative
of further necessary changes in the
chart of the singular archipelago off
the Alaskan coast- When Bogoslof
has been violently active in the past,
the ocean round about has been a
seething ferment, and presently new
islands have appeared. Thus Fire
island was created in 1883, Perry
island in 1905. McCullough peak in
1906. The latter obliterated about half
of Perry island in the violence of its
own emergence, only to disappear be
neath the waves in the covwyse of the
following year. In March. while
Bogoslof emitted fire, ashes tind sand,
another island became visible. Alas

are the fox and
the reindeer, and the hardy mariners
take seal and otter as well as fish.
These islands seem to be the re
mains of a bridge between the Alaska
peninsula and Asia. As they form a
disintegrated chain, the southward
boundary of Bering sea, all the way to
Kamchatka, it is widely beyond the
bounds of probability that some day
they will be utilized, as the keys of
Florida are being used, for stepping
stones by the railway builders to Kev
West. If there are distances too great
to be spanned and depths that cannot
be plumbed, car ferries may be op
erated. But in any event it will be
necessary to give Bogoslof a wide
berth, as well as the islands which that
formidable little fire mountain alter
nately produces and destroys..

brothers will compete in a national
fingerball tournament. This rather

"1 wish everybody in
States who appreciates a great indus
trial success could take a trip through
the Port Motor Co.'s gigantic plant
in Detroit," said C. F. Reynolds, Ford
branch manager here.
"We talk about this and that con
cern as being a phenomenal business
success, but I think those who know
the real inside history of the Ford
Motor Co., will agree with me, that
it represents the one greatest success
in industrial history.
"For rapid advancement, consider
ing the difficulties it had to overcome,
I believe there has never been any
thing to compare with the success
scored by Henry Ford and James
Couzens and their able lieutenants in
"Just think of it! Nine years ago
Mr. Ford was using a little one room
shop, which looked more like a hut
than a shop, to build his first original
stock model. He had four men to
help him in the mechanical end with
Mr. Couzens to look after financial
"Today to look at the wonderful
factory in Detroit with its forty-five
acres of floor space, 4,500 workmen,
and one of the largest machine shops
in the world, with cars being built
there, even now in the winter time,
at the rate of 150 a day, it simply
makes me marvel at the wonderful
growth the Ford business has had.
"It was the success of the one
model idea. Henry Ford started out
In the automobile business deter
mined to do one thing and that was
to build a motor car for all the peo
ple and at a price the people could
pay. The battle was outlined and
the fight begun. Messrs. Ford and
Couzens never let up. They clung to
their pet idea with the tenacity of
bull dogs, and the manner In which
they have won out am sure sets a
new standard for business success.
"Think of them putting out 75,000
cars in the present season! Mind
you, that means three times as many
Ford Model T's as the combined out
put of all the factories in England,
five times more than the combined
output of the German factories and
fifteen times as many as the combined
output of the factories of Italy.
"Concentrating every thought and
energy of the entire Ford organiza
tion upon just one model, the Model
Tr effected such economics in manu
facture, that they were able steadily
to reduce the price of Ford cars to
the sensational figure they stand at
"With prophetic vision, Mr. Ford
saw years ago In his mind the one
car that the people needed. He saw
at that time a demand for a car that
would be low in price and cheap to
maintain. He hewed closely to the
line and let nothing interfere with
the making and perfecting of that
"Of course, the demand was there.
That is a matter of history now:
How the people in all parts of the
world have bought Ford Model
cars, is well known. Mr. Ford re
garded the car as a necessity He
was trying to create a necessity. The
wonderful sale of the car indicates
that the people looked upon it as a
necessity. Think of the Germans
buying 375 of them during the auto
mobile show at Berlin not long ago!
Think of the Chinese and Indians and
all of the peoples of Europe buying
Ford cars all the time!
"It took a wonderful organization
to build up such a business in the
short space of time required to 'Ford
onlze' the entire world. I dare say
there are 40,000 people directly inter
ested in the designing and manufac
turing parts and accessories and sell­
the United
61 Broadway
ing of Ford automobiles throughout
the world.
"Few know of the difficulties en
countered by Messrs, Ford and Couzens
in the early days of their automobile
experience. Conservative Detroft,
which has now como to be the autO
inobile capital, didn't take kindly to
Mr. Ford's first car which was t^s
first ever seen in Detroit. Capital was
hard to get on account of the lack of
confidence in the automobile as -a
staple article of commerce.
"When the business did get on Its
feet, the Selden patent bogie min
bobbed up. The licensed crowd pat

was decided in the Ford company's

Selden patent.
"In fact, the court said the engine

That was the last obstacle in the
pathway of the Ford company. It
had brought out all of the fighting
qualities of Henry Ford and James

their rights.
