No country has been more deeply
or advantageously affected . than tho
United States by the changes wrougnt

of Commerce Monthly, the bank's
masMzine.' -- r s v.--..
"The -United States now stands

relation to International commerce
than it did in 1914." Mr. Emerson says.
"Our merchant fleet Is the- aecond

A number of countries ' whose goods

the increasing use of oil as fuel for

in Commerce Monthly, says in part:
"Because we now have become the
second nation in the world as regards

number of new direct lines under our

In Official Circles Belief Is That
One-Time Emperor Is Settled
Down for Life at Estate in
The Hague, Nov. 9. Former Em
peror William, came to Holland a year
ago last Monday, since tnai lime
there has been.no demand, officially
or unofficially," for his extradition or
delivery up to the Allies, nor has Hol
land at all s changed its viewpoint to
ward him. The Associated Press
learned this today from . sources that
are unquestionable,
Holland's viewpoint as hegards Wil
liam Hohenzollern may be stated
frankly as follows: The Netherlands,
which , for centuries has accorded a
political refuge to all, considers the
former Emperor and Crown Prince as
refugees, not as royalty bul as persons
entitled" to the same rights as any
plain Johann Schmidt who fled to Hol
land during the war. This principle
is so strongly held by the government,
also by ' the Press of Holland that
nothing is likely to change it, it is as
serted, The Associated ; Press learns that
Holland considers the farmer Emperor
beyondextraditlon as there is no pos
sible way ; legally to .hold him as - a
criminal. .
If the one time Emperor and Crown
Prince desired ,to return to Germany
they would be permitted to go. While
it is possible Frederick William some
day may return to Germany, official
circles here are inclined to the belief
that. William Hohenzollern is content
to settle down to a life of a country
gentleman ; at Doom, where he has
bought a small estate.

Meet Today.
Rest of State Awaits Results of
Pensacola's Move But State
Commission Takes No Official
Mayor Frank D. Sanders, as mem
ber ex-officio of the Centennial com
mittee on procedure, has expressed' a
wish that Judge Blount, chairman of
the committee, call his associates to
gether today. The committee is di
rected to report to a mass-meeting
Thursday night and much work is to
be done in the short time Intervening.
Mayor Sanders will get in touch with
each member of the committee early
this morning and make arrangements
for the first meeting.
. Pensacola's intention to proceed im
mediately with plans for holding an
international exposition in 1921 has
created considerable tir throughout
the state. Newspaper comment in
Jacksonville. Tampa and Malmi Is di
vided in opinion as to the wisdom of
the move, but everywhere Pensacola
Is being credited with having a lot
more punch, fight and ambition than
had been supposed existed.
So far Chairman Brorem nas maae
no official pronouncements since the
meeting of the commission on Wed
nesday. It is expected tnat ne may
ignore completely the decision of
Senator McWilliams not to approve
vouchers of expenses. That being the
case there will be no further meetings
of the commission until the legisla
ture meets in 1921. Should Chairman
Brorein call another meeting of the
commission no expense money will be
forthcoming unless the four-fair vote
Is rescinded and the commission pro
ceeds to arrange for an international
MTsit!on. - " - -'-
wnwBvcr. Pensacola at present. Is
not , waiting for the commission
Judge Blount's committee will report
Thursday on the form of procedure
and immediate steps will be taken to
perfect in this city an exposition such
as the state commission was directed
to arrange.
In the meantime, should the state
commission decide to act and desig
nate Pensacola, a better feeling be
tween the various sections of the state
would necessarily follow. Some ac
tion is almost certain to be taken.
What the action will be depends on
the initiative of Chairman Brorein.

Most of Larger Cities Are Plan
ning for Great Final Wind up
of Red Cross Roll Call Drive
on Armistice Day.'
Workers Will Give Especial At
tention Today to Enrolling
Industrial and Business Con
cerns. , v
The southern division is now leading
the nation in the third Red Cross roll
call. This splendid standing is mainly
due, it is announced, to the "record of
the smaller chapters. However, all
city chapters have made a splendid
beginning, and reports from most of
them indicate thorough plans for a
strong finish today and Tuesday.
Headquarters of the southern di
vision suggests that special emphasis
be put today on enrolling Industrial
concerns and business firms. Armis
tice day will be the great day all over
the country for general canvass on
the streets.
The director general of railroads has
notified i regional directors to permit
soliciting in railroad waiting rooms,
subject to Judgment of local authority
as to whether this can be done without
undue interference with handling of
Atlanta, Nov. 9. With Impetus
gained from the first week of the third
Red Cross roll call, Saturday enroll
ment throughout the southern division

reported, and according to reports at
present available, the southeastern
states, which make up the southern di
vision of the Red Cross are maintain

United States, although the Atlantia

tion. Is a close second.

out the country are planning ta hold
their campaign on Armistice day, No
vember 11, and wind it up in a short
canvass in which , by ' thorough organl
zation. every person in the community
may be given an opportunity to join
the Red Cross in a very short time.
J. L. McMillan, campaign manager
for the Southern division, states that
the returns, while incomplete, indicate
that a great many chapters have se
cured more members in this roll call
than in any previous campaign, due
to.trJe rivalry between many chapters
in the division. The great majority
of them have not rendered returns,
but are holding their figures until
they can be sure that their competitors
will not take advantage of them.
In practically, every community, al
though last Sunday was officially Red
Cross Sunday, plans had been an
nounced for even greater attention to
roll call In the churches today.
All indications are that more than as
many members as have beh enrolled
during the past week will be enrolled
Monday and Tuesday. Armistice day,
November 11, will be celebrated by the
Red Cross campaigners In conjunction
with the American Legion, which is
solidly behind the Red Cross drive,
and it is expected that record-breaking
enrollments will be made. '
National headquarters of the Red
Cross has sent out an appeal to its
members to wear their membership
button and display their service flag
from now until the end of the cam
paign to avoid ' being solicited agaia
and again.
According to the plan of the cam
paign district lines everywhere will b
disregarded for the rest of the cam
paign and "moppers up" will - solicit
every man and woman not wearing
a button. ,
