Washington. May 28.-President
Wilson told delegates to the national
foreign trade convention, who called
at the white house today, that one ot,
thc chief needs of the United States
was a mrechant marine.
"There ls nothing In which I am
more Interested than the fullest devel- (
opment V the trade in this country,
and its righteous conquest of foreign 1
marketa," he said.
"I think you will re&T.za from what
Secretary Redflled has said tn you I
that it ia one of the things that we '
hold pcm cst to our lierais, that the '
government and you should cooperate |
in the most intimate manner in ac
complishing our common object.
"I am sure that I speak with the
conviction of all of you when I say
that one of our chief needs is to have a
merchant marine, because if we have
to deliver our goods in other people's
delivery wagons their goods are de
livered first and our delivered Incident
ally on their routes. This ls a matter
I have near by own near for a gr?nt
many years."

Suffered a Number of Bruises and
Scratches But No Bones Were
Broken-Now Recovered
While the streets were thronged
with people about 3 o'clock yesterday
afternoon, those passing the Townsend
Apartments on Main street saw whr.t
proved to be almost a mircale. ?foe
Cox Keller, the little two and one half
year old son of F. ?. Keller, fell from
the second floor of the apartment
house *.o the ground below, a distance
of about 20 feet. Every person seeing
the child fall front'the window was al
most paralyzed with fear for anstant
and then dozens rushed to him, only
to find that he had sustained but a few
bruises and scratches and was not
seriously injured.
Mrs. Keller had left the little boy in
charge of a nurse and had stepped
across the street to the Carnegie Li
brary. She had Just come from the
building and was standing on the steps
of the library talking to another lady
when she" BRW her baby falling. She
was frantic with fright and could
hardly get acunas the street to lift up
the baby add/carry him up stairs. A
physician was hurriedly summoned
and completo -examination made to de
termine the extent ot the little boy's
injuries and then it was found that he
liad escaped without hurt. This can
not be described exactly as a miracle,
the distance from the window to
the ground is tully 20 feet and it does
seem that the child would at least
have sustained several' broken bones
and it might have been killed.

(Tty Associated Press.)
Washington. May 28.-President
Wilson, through a statement Issued at
thc White House today, again as
sured the business world that the ad
ministration would proceed "moder
ately and soberly" in its program of
business refonn legislation. The
statement was occasioned by the visit
of a delegation of illinois business
men, who asked the president that all
legislation affecting business except
tho trade commission be withheld until
a trade commlslon could lok thorough
roughly into the business situation.
"The president said in reply to tho
Illinois delegation" rays the state
ment, "that in his judgment nothing
was more dangerous for business
than uncertainty; that it had become
evident through a long series of years
that a policy euch as the democratic
party war now pursuing was absolute
ly necessary to satisfy the conscience
of the country, and its perception of
thc prevailing conditions of busi
ness; and that it was a great deal
better to do the thing moderately; and
soberly now, than to walt until more
radical forces had accumulated and
lt wee necosary togo much further.
"The president also said that while
he was aware of the present depres
sion of businers, there was abundant
evidence that lt was merely psycho
logical that here ts nb material con
dition or substantial reason why the
business of the country shbuld not be

to hinder or injure tho business of

believed that upon reflection they
