WILSON DECLINES
sls -OOP OFFER
Published. Sets High Figure
for .mist One Article.
WASJITdIrGTOX, Dec. 20.—For Just one
article a publishing company has offered
rtVealdent Wilson $150,000, It was learned
today. And the President declined the
offer.
Scores of publishers have come to the
White House with offers for the output
of the President’s pen after he leaves
the White House next March 4.
While one man intimated he had an
agreement with Wilson It was said at
the White House all offer* have met a
refusal, Just as the SISOOOO one did.
The President’* reason for refusing
the offers was given as a desire to
market hts literary output for what It
will bring rather than to accept a definite
sum for any article that, when com
pleted, might not measure to the stan
dard the President has set for himself.
Just what the nature of the President’s
writings will be Is not known to any one
hut himself, bnt from the interest he
hue always shown in the economic his
tory of the United States it is probable
he will write further along these lines
According to White House officials there
will be no memolra

CHICAGO, Dee. 29. —Chicago is des
stined to become the ’’buckle" of a j
navigable water belt, which will extend
from the Gulf of Mexico, via the Mis- j
slssippl River, the Illinois waterway,
the Grant Lakes, and the St. Lawrence
to the Atlantic ocean, according to Gov

PHE miracle of mechanical de-
A velopment which lias revolu
tionized the world and has changed
man’s habit of life, even in the re
motest wilderness, was made possi
ble by the discovery of oil in 1858,
and the development of oil refining,
in which the Standard Oil Company
was a pioneer and leader.
With the development of the pe
troleum industry came a cheap,
efficient, easily secured lubricant,
capable of keeping the hearings of
the heaviest machinery runningcool
and without friction.
It is the thin film or mineral oil which has
made possible the great mechanical inven
tions of the modern world. When popula
tion was scarce and widely scattered, the
surplus animal and vegetable fats were suf
ficient to grease the simple machinery of
that day, but with the vast development of
mechanical power these sources of lubri
cants would be quite inadequate.
The old system and the new may be visual
ized by comparing the “grease rag M of
Madeira with the marvelous automatic force
feed lubrication in your automobile. In
Madeira the native walks ahead of his team,
smearing the cobblestones with a grease rag,
while you drive comfortably, because petrol
eum has made automatic lubrication possible.
Correct lubrication is the life of industry,
and correct lubrication depends entirely
upon petroleum. All other products of
crude oil, while adding much to the pros
perity, comfort and gayety of the world,
could be given up without the disastrous
consequences which would follow the elim
ination of the petroleum lubricants.
The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) man
ufactures a large number of oils and greases,
each designed to meet an especial need. To
serve industry better, the
tains a staff of lubricating experts whose
business it is to study the problems of indi
vidual industries, and determine the lubri
cants necessary to increase the efficiency* of
machinery, and to prolong its life.
The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) is
proud of its position as the manufacturer of
the lubricants used by so large a number of
important industries throughout the nation.

suys.
ALL COMMERCE MUST
CROSS BELT.
"All oo mm arcs between the seaboard
and points West and Northwest must
traverse it or cross It on tho way to
or from the sa, and If there lie sufficient
economies In water transportation and
in handling, a largo part will bo diverted
from rail to wator and seek port for
export by the cheaper route.
"At the very buckle of the belt, where
two parts of the through route come]
togethes, lies Chicago. At this point, j
Chicago, already the greatest rail center \
of the world, and seemingly destined j
soon to become the western terminus ]
of great ocean routes and also the north- j
ern terminus of one of the greatest of
inland waterways leading to the Gulf of !
Mexico, there must necessarily be great
and continually increasing provision for
the transfer of freight.
POINTS NEED OF
VAST HARBOR.
"This interchange must be carried on
in the most economical and expeditions
way so that vessels and cars may have
the quickest ’turn-around.’
"Fortunately there is a break in the
middle of the waterfront bHween the
Illinois Steel Company plant and Gary
which is not yet used for industrial pur
poses.
"This undeveloped waterfront is some
three and one-half miles long. Tho area
just back of it, covered by Wolf Lake,
Lake George, and nearby marshy regions,
is about six square miles in extent. The
foreshore of Lake Michigan iit this point
is reasonably shoal and Is already pub
licly owned.
"A part of this frontage and land
lying submerged by the. small lakes is
in Indana. There is the best of reason
for believing there Is no constitutional
objection to concurrence pn the part of
these two States In creating nud en
dowing with sufficient powers a joint
harbor commission under whose adminis
tration harbor facilities might be es
tablished.”

THE Wm. H. BLOCK CO.
formed today that Germany’s reply to
tho demand for demobilization of the
citizens guard had been handed French,
British and Italian representatives In
Berlin. It was said to have been accom
panied by an oral threat that .persistence
in the allied demand would jeopardize
the Brussels conference In which the na
tions are attempting to reach an agree
ment on reparations.
Meantime, Germany’s refusal to de
mobilize the Einwohnerwehr (citiaens 1
guard), has brought a serious situation
to a climax, Including the possibility
of allied occupation of the Ruhr in
dustrial district and perhaps otner parts
of Germany.
In French official circles, It Is declared
the allies are determined to carry the
Issue to a conclusion with Germany,
which so far has evinced no signs of
yielding. Allied military leaders are un
derstood to be in dally conference here.

Prospects of another major campaign
by the Bolshevists are regarded so cer
tain that the allies are reported to be
shaping their policies with this con
tingency In view. The French Chamber
of Deputies actually has set aside 60,000,-
000 francs to provide war material for
the border states, against which the Red
drive Is expected to be directed, particu
larly Poland and Roumania.
The French foreign office declares that
War Minister Trotski recently doubled
the strength of the Red cavalry divi
sions which now are estimated at 100,000
men. The soviet concentrations along the
Esthonian and Lettish frontiers are said
to be approximately another 100,000.
The allies are declared to be extremely
anxious, to maintain a solid bulwark of
border states against the Bolshevists.
Esthonla and Latvia are recognized as
friendly but Lithuania is leaning toward
Moscow.
