The Telegram is officially informed
I that' the division freight agent's head- j j
quarters of the llaltimore and Ohio j
Railroad Company will not lie moved j
I from Purkersimrg as reported a few
days ago. Instcnd the railroad com-,1
panv has established an additional rdl- '
f. vision freight agency at Grafton tn: '
look after matters in the central West 1
Virginia disriet, particnlarly the Mo- <
nongah division. The additional i
agency will prove beneficial to (Marks- 1
1^5 burg, and as the company could not '
'ir see its way clear to es* i lish the same <
here, it is gratifying if lie Telegnm j (
| that it is to give loci f rppers addi-1
J tional benefits bv < i dishing ttie *
| j same so near Clar't shvi.'.r. <
Opponents to Greater Clarksburg i
f| haive started the false story that the 1
city of Clarksburg is bonded now for ?
jp more than $700,000. The truth Is that 1
|/< the city government levies taxes for c
interest and redemption of only $1*10,- t
000 in bonds. These bonds were issued j
for bridges, street and sewerage pur- i
t poses. There is a bonded debt of j ?:
| $263,000 for the water and sewerage' c
Jl system. No levy is laid for these as j 1
f they arc taken care of by the water and f
sewerage board. Taxation for the <
i") school bonds is collected from the en- j \
I ft tire Clarksburg school district, wmen j i
|)r embraces all the chief suburbs pro-t ]
I posed to be taken in c xeept Adamston (

Business Methods Back. 1
Foreign ,tradc of the United States
Is handicapped through fear of anti- i
trust taws, which Jiave kept the
| American manufacutrer and iner- ]
chant from combining with his neigh- (
k i bor in the foreign field, according to |
B Edward X. Hurley, chairman of the;]
federal trade commission, addressing <
the chamber of commerce at Phila- i
Ri" delphia the other day. Mr, Hurl y .
I indorsed the Webb bill, permitting ;
co-operation In foreign trade, which ]
will be presented at the next session
||; of Congress. j*
I Asserting that efficient manage- j
ment and sound business methods are ,
K Lhe prime needs of American business
f men if they are to compete in forV
cign markets. Mr, Hurley startled
his audience with the statement that (
not more than ten per cent of any ;
|f' group of men representing any intt
dustry, who have appeared before
f| the federal trade commission, had '
||| a good cost system, and that of the
tie. 250,000 manufacturers and conimercial
organizations, 100. OoO had no
jfj " earnings during It'll; 0.0 0.0 earned
less than $5,000 a year, and of the
||| remainder SO,000. charging off noth;
ing for depreciation, continued to pay
Z a tax to the government on inflated
I' ' balance sheets.

Plans tor the cstablishinent of a
|| - system of correspondence between
H students in the high schools of Ar-,
Ij : gen tin a and students in the United
i States have been disrus.sod at a conp
. Terence between Ambassador Xnon of
Argentina ami a representative of the
r Washington bureau of the American
jl Peace So- ' ety.
"The id : Is one that I initiated in ;
Argentina o'er four years ago." said
g , the ambassador, "bur at that time
P there did not appear to be sufficient
F Interest here to carry it through. The'
prospect is better at present and I
have already despatched to one of the
Buenos Ayres schools in which I am'
Is " particularly interested a number of
r; ; letters written by students in the
f? Proctor Academy of Andnver. X". J. In
i i <lue time I shall receive from the;

v I long letter written by the students
there, which will be translated and I
" sent on to And over. Thus the plan
may be considered to bo definitely
| ' tinder way."
b Ambassador Naon's interest in this j
yi scheme for bringing the young people
' of the two countries closer together is
wholly personal. Ho does not believe
i that the plan should be roadie ofTWal
In any way. His interest in the eduj
cational development of his country is
| deep. He founded sixtv-one of the
f RChoola In and about Ituehos Ay res.
I He is certain that all these schools
|? would co-operate eagerly in the ex|
change of letters with schools in this
rountry and hopes to see the tir-e
'? } when the "best friend" of each of
I these Argentine schools will be a sim
f *fcur school in the United States.

The divorce report siyv. "Thl
