The immense problem of supplying the world with gasoline for usb in automobile vehicles is best illustrated by the fact there are over 6.000,000 motor vehicles in the United States today, and the demand is far out reaching the supply. The allied coun tries of Europe have 350,000 motor vehicles. In 1S17, in the United States alone there was one motor vehicle to every IS persons. These figures, compiled recently by the re search department of the Federal Motor Truck Company of Detroit, Michigan, give a fair estimate of the immensity of the distribution problem in the oil and gasoline industry. In the city of Chicago, there is one vehicle to every 33 persons. Every one of these cars or truc'ts must have its ration of gasoline to enable it to make mileage. A minimum of 2 gal lons of gasoline per day, which is very conservative, makes over 12,000, 000 per day to be distributed. In addition to this the gasoline must be convenient to the motorist. It must be distributed from roadside stations from one end of the country to the oiner. in every Dig city there are thousands of oil stations throughout the rural districts they are dotting the landscape and now even the "gen eral store" at the cross roads has its gas station. The problem of supplying gasoline to these stations has been success fully solved by the motor vehicle it self, it has worked out its own salva tion. As an illustration of the im mense organization and business equipment which is necessary to per mit you to buy gasoline conveniently let us tell you of one convenient cen tral oil distributing station in Chi' cago. Th's station the Standard Oil (Indiana) plant at 1350 So. Leavitt Street, Chicago, employs 150 men. Here more than 200 motor trucks are serviced, rebuilt, new bodies mane for them and the whole organiza tion works 24 hours per day to keep the trucks1 on the job supplying g.asoline to the wayside stations of this company in Chicago. With the system utilized by litis company, this big plant is able to instantly repair a damaged truck; thus the truck is idle a minimum time and the gasoline is kept going into the capacious maw of the motor vehicles tank. All this is done to supply Chicago with motor fuel. It is only a typical example of what is being done in every part of the United States. Upon its operation and efficiency depends to a certain extent, the low price of gasoline and the constant flow of gasoline which must meet the de mands of our millions of motor vehicle owners.

HI tf That the United States will soon become the chief source of coal sup ply for other nations of the world is ihe belief expressed in the November issue of Commerce Monthly, the mag azine of the National Bank of Com merce in New York. It is. pointed out that this coun try, although it produces more than half of the world's coal, has in the past left the export trade domination in this commodity to England, whose deposits are but a small percentage of ours. England, however, with pro duction dwindling as a result of the war and her labor unrest, seems in evitably bound to yield place to us. "More than half of the total coal resources of the world are located in the United States." During the past ten years, production of coal in the United States has developed remark ably, showing- in 1918 an increase of 32 per cent, over the average produc tion during the five years 1919 to 1913. The most rapid increases in production have taken place in Illi nois and West Virginia, the output of the former of these states for 1918 being 31,000,000 tons and of the latter 24,000,000 tons over the 1909 to 1913 average. Pennsylvania increased her bitum inous output 22,000,000 tons as com pared with her average of 1909 to 1913 and anthracite production for 191S was 11,000,000 tons over the average for the same period. j "While American coal production in 1918 broke all records, output for the current year will be far below that level. If the present rate of out put is maintained, anthracite produc tion will be about 76,000,000 tons and bituminous production 432,000,000 tons, a total 508,000,000 tons, the low est production since 1915. It is be lieved that anthracite production is adequate, but at the present time it is not possible to determine whether or not the country faces an actual shortage of bituminous coal during the coming winter. "The acute problem is not, however, the domestic but the international coal situation. The present coal short age in Europe is due to many causes, chief among them being shortage of labor, reduction in hours of work, and more than all, a general state of in dustrial unrest and disorganization as a result of the war. These factors have all contributed to an enormous increase in the cost of production, variously estimated at from 75 to 150 per cent., over the cost of production in 1913. Prior to the warT the coal importing countries of Europe were supplied by GTeat L Britain, Germany and, to a small ex tent, by Belgium. Although Germany was 'bound under the Peace Treaty to deliver 43, 000,000 tons of coal to France in the next six months, she was not able to furnish this amount and the require ment was reduced to 20,000,000 tons. Belgian coal production is proceed ing at a satisfactory rate. Her email exports, however, are not a large fac tor in meeting the European situa tion. Great Britain has been the world's greatest exporter of coal both in the form of coal for bunkerage, and exports In the strict sense. "British production which in 1913 was 287,000,000 gross tons, decreased to 228,000,000 tons in 1918. Sir Auck land Geddes, president of the Board of Trade, states that for the twelve months beginning July 16, 1919, when the miner's seven hour day came Into effect, the production of British coal will he approximately between 214, 000,000 and 217,000,000 tons. Even if the amount of coal retained for home consumption were kept down to 196, 000,000 tons, the strictly rationed basis basis of 1918, there would be available for export only about 20, 000,000 gross tons. Not only is the ability of Great Britain actually to produce coal for export and ship bunkers curtailed, but the price of coal is now so high there as to open the field to all com petition, and especially to competi tion from the United States. "Although the foremost coal pro ducing nation, our exports of coal have never been large. In the five pre-war years, 1909 to 1913, our ex ports averaged only about 16,000,000 tons, the greater part- of which went to Canada. Whether in the immed- i iate future we are able to supply the i coal which Great Britain cannot fur- ! nish will depend partly on our ability I to increase bituminous coal produc : elon, that being the kind primarily needed both for export and for ship ; bunkers. It will also depend on ob- i taining adequate tonnage. Whatever ; the outcome of the present situation, it seems inevitable, however, that in time the United States will assume in the coal export trade and in the business of bunkering ships, the posi- ! tion to which her coal resources en title her." BRAZIL FORGED TO DEVELOP HER OWN INDUSTRIES Brazil, wich in past years import ed a large variety of manufactures from the United States, has been forced by war conditions to develop industries of her own until she is now rapidly growing self-sufficient, the National Bank of Commerce in New York says in the November is sue of its magazine,' Commerce Monthly. The article says in part: "More than one-third of the total Imports into Brazil during 1918 came from the United States. What share of this consisted of manufac tures Is not yet known, but, in 1917 more than half of the total imports from this country was made up of manufacture!,! goods. While the war has increased our productive capa city until we feel the necessity of finding a market for our surplus manufactured product, it has exerted an equally stimulating effect upon Brazilian industry. The development which has taken place in that coun try since 1914 would serve as a clas sical illustration of the steps by which industrialization occurs in any country. "As war cut off the imports of tex tiles and clothing, Brazil set out to clothe her own people. Now the ma jor portion of Brazilian cotton is con sumed at home. Between 1915 and 1917 eight mills for the manufacture of knit goods were established in Sao Paulo, and more than seventy textile mills of all classes are in op eration in that that state alone. One million, two hundred thousand hats were made In that district in 1916. The output of footwear in Brazil is now 20,000,000 pairs a year. A large number of plants for making pre serves, sweets and chocolates have begun operation. Corn milling and other manufactures of food products increased rapidly. In 1914 no lard was exported from Brazil. In 191S, 13,270 tons, valued at about $8,000, 000, left Brazil for foreign ports. The exportation of refrigerated meats as expanded from 8,500 to 60,500 tons. "The state of Sao Paulo is the main center of Brazilian manufacture. During the years from 1915 to 1917, 323 manufacturing concerns capital ized at a total of 53.500,000, or an average of over $10,000 each, were established in that province. IELD MARSHAL LORO HAI6 NOW KINGSTON EARL London, Nov. 4. Field Marsha'. Lord Haig does not after all become "Earl Haig: of Bemersyde," as he had wished, but "Earl Haig of King ston," it is announced. His residence being at Coombe there were objec tions, it is understood, to the terri torial designation of Bemersyde, the Tweedside seat of the head of his family and remote kinsman. Colonel A. H. Haig. There are well defined rules as to the assumption of territorial titles, and the lord of a manor can object to a new peer taking his title from a place over which the former has "rights." Lord Fisher, for example, vt ished to be Lord Thetford, but his Norfolk manor belonged to W. D. MacKenzie. Lord Strathcona wanted to be Lord Glencoe, but the rights of the ancient MacDonalds stood in the way. United Kingdom of Gt. Britain & Ireland 5 Conv.

OLD REICHSTAG BUILDING AGAIN IN GOOD SHAPE Berlin, Nov. 6 (By The Associated Press) The Reichstag building has undergone a rirorous renovation and has been pronounced again fit for Par liamentary occupation. The work occupied nine months. In ridding the great gilded-domed edifice of all traces of the revolution the largest call-bred vacuum , cleaners, the most powerful of disinfectants and the deadliest of vermin exterminators were employed. While in addition to the damage it had undergone, the building contain o many reminders, unpleasant re i tbrances of the days when civil w. r was waged in Berlin .the Nation al Assembly had a reasonable excuse for prolonging its sojourn In Weimar. But now that disinfectants and Vermin-exterminators have completed their work such excuse no longer exists. 9 jiSaS mymM$xwwi Mm mm Mm Wltf .. m6 mm mm Vftwpiwi Nov.
