pany's flag ship Alabama, carrying a
crew of 50, was fast in the ice banks
six miles out.
For the first time in a week,' how
ever, the wind to-day had changed to
ff shore and it was believed the sunt
ing ke would permit the Alabama to
crush her way to post.
The Alabama left Muskegon, Mich.,
Saturday morning. She arrived off the
crib yesterday morning ana immedi
ately was frozen in. She was said to
be in no danger.

British Official Makes Flat Statement
That His Country Is Going to
Supplant United States in
South America.
Iuienos Aires, Sunday, Jan. 25.
Statements by Lord Ashfield of South
well, president of the British Board of
Trade, that the British were "going to
supplant the United States in the mar
ket she won in South America during
the war," which were recently cabled to
Argentina, have aroused considerable
feeling among Americans here.
Lord Ashfleld's declarations have
been given wide publicity here by a
British advertising agency, and, speak
ing last night at the first annual ban
quet of the United States Chamber of
Commerce In Argentina, William II.
Robertson, American consul general,
took exception to them as being what
he described as "noatile propaganda.
"The amount of our Latin-American
and Argentine trade we hold after the
war," he said, "will depend exactly, as
always, upon the efficiency of our man
ufacturers and the skill of our sales
men in other words, considerations of
price and quality. With an enormous
ly valuable home market, the United
States has up to the present made vir
tually no concerted effort to secure
Latiu-American trade. Our goods sold
themselves on their merits alone, in
spite of all the hostile propaganda used
against us by our rivals. I think the
president of the tfntisn Board oi I rade
will find himself mistaken in his recent
alleged utterance, and that 'more ex
perienced methods in trading, senti
mental relations and British quality'
are going to supplant us soon with our
Latin-American friends."
Mr. Robertson cited statistics to
6how it was a misconception that Eu
roDean nations like Great Britain and
Germany had in the past outsold the
United States in South America, and
to demonstrate that the increase or
United States trade during the war was
merely an enlargement of old, long
established business. He said this was
contrary to the jmpre.-ision the United
States had taken her opportunity to
step m while fcuropean nations were
engaged in the war and take away the
profits of their business.
"The simple fact is," he continued,
"that the United States has not been
outsold in the past and has littla cause
for worry as to what Europeans are go
ing to take away from her in future."
Protesting against the habit attrib
uted to sorm Americans in referring
to American importers and manufac
turers, dealing in South America a
"dishonest," Mr. Robertson insisted
there should be retractions made. He
said these men had been imposed upon
by "subtle propagandists," who had as
their object the injuring of America's
commercial reputation abroad. He as
serted a few specitic complaints naa
been made the basis for general state
ments. .
"It would be interesting," he conclud
ed, "to learn. to what extent such com
plaints are kept alive in foreign mar
keU by our competitors, but the best
reply to their unworthy and insincere
aspirations Is the simple fact that be
tween lf05 and 1013 our exports of
manufactures nearly doubled and they
have been steadily increasing since.
Regular Venire of 80 Men
and Special of 300
Men Called
Ten of Eleven Men Indicted
Are Charged Specifical
ly With Murder ,
Montesano, Wash.; Jan. 26. A reg
ular venire of eighty men and a special
venire of 300 to-day hod been sum
moned for the opening of the trial of
11 Industrial Workers of the World,
charged with murder in connection with
the shooting to death of four former
soldiers at Centralia on armistice day.
Defense counsel had announced, how
ever, that a second request for a change
of venue would be made. The trial was
transferred to Montesano, seat of
Gray's Harbor county, from Jwis
county, where the shooting occurred.
Defense counsel then as now, charged
sentiment against the defendants would
deprive them of a fair trial.
It has been estimated tnai ten weens
will be necessary for the trial. The
prosecution has a list of more than
300 witnesses and the defense Is said
to plan to present fully 100. Ten de
fendant are charged specifically with
the murder of Lieutenant Warren O.
Grimm, leader in the armistice day
parade. r
The eleventh man, Elmer Smith, Cen
tralia attorney, is charged with being
an accessory before the fact in the al
leged conspiracy to shoot the former
service men as they marched in a parade.
Said to Be Almost Ready for British
London, Jan. 24. The British navy
may soon be given a new and "unsur
passed" weapon in a large calibre shell
which will pierce the heaviest armor
without shattering, suid Sir Robert
Hadfield, chairman and managing di
rector of Iladflclds, Ltd., stoel manufac
turers, recently. Ho indicated that
possession of such a shell during the
great war would have been of inesti
mable value to the British fleet.
"The feat has been accomplished," he
said, "within the last few days, of get
ting the largest calibre of armor-piercing
shell unbroken through the thickest
of modern, hard-fuced armor plate. This
result will render the British gun un
surpassed, incomparable and the master
in any naval engagements of the fu
ture. "If we had possessed such a shell
during the war many of the German
battleships would nave been -scuttled
long before they were at Scapa Flow."
