The increases in Europe i are particularly high although in j Latin-America the governmnets anxious ever the situation and Rrej trying to find means of combatting i the difficulties presented by the high prices of commodities deemed essential. In Portugal the government. In I an attempt to lower the cost of llv-i inc. has placed, 'through the Minis-! tor of Finance, a >art of .its gold! reserves In the banks of Lisbon. In Kngland, the cost of living! above pre-war level is figured at 115 i per cent for September and 120 per; cent for October, .is to actual ne-i cesslties of life and based upon! average living conditions of wagei earners, A more distinct rise has occurred in the cost of commodities so far as the other elements of; population in England -ire oon-i cerned, being unofficially estimated by some at approximately 135 pel- cent with, a steady upward trend. In Sweden, figures furnished by the Swedish government indicate that the cost of living has increas- ed 157 per cent over the cost in June, 1914. In the cities the in- crease has been very much greater than the average for the country. The Argentine government has suggested to other South American countries and discussed with them a international arrangement with a vie doing away with import du- ties on unmanufactured food prod- ucts as one means of cutting down the high cost of living. Information which has reached the state depart- ment regarding this plan is to the effect that a suggestion has been made that a conference be called by the Argentine minister for for- eign affairs to discuss this question of exchange of real necessities of life free of customs charges. In Brazil the tariff is being revised with a view to reducing the cost of living in that country. In Uruguay the percentage of increase of present cost of living over the cost in June, 1914, is estimated by the Vruguayan government at: Food 52 pet cent, fuel 4S per cent, light 75 i-IT cent, rent no increase.

The American people are fast losing patience with this atti- tude. It may develop out of this the "open door" toward Europe will be in' a large measure, closed'. But worse than this, there may develop out of it a prejudice against every speaker of a foreign language in the United States. It creates preju- dice against extending aid to those counlries in .Europe from which our foreign born populations spring." Any needed reforms in the Unit- ed States, he asserted, would "tie carried out by those whose parents have grown up amid our institu- tions and those who have become in sentiment and spirit, a part of our people."

It was a necessary and timely rebuke ,to the anarchists, to bolshevists and the foreign labor leaders who have come to this country to destroy it. Let every genuine American citizen to the sup- port of the American flag, of our American officials, of our American laws and of our American traditions. These anarchists, and bolshevists and reds and their, leaders and their sympathizers should be relentlessly driven from America and sent back to the European countries from which they were driven or fled. There is no room in America for such as these. Vicious, de- praved, dwarfed antl deformed mentally, they seek to destroy and disrupt what they even haven't the mental capacity to understand or grasp. The labor unions of the country should begin imme- to purge themselves of leaders who seek to taint them with this spirit of destruction and revolution, and no union can stand that is led or officered or guided or controlled by such leaders. year ago superintended tne great mond thal see ..Tne Hoodlum" drive which ended1 the world war, i before you pronounce "Daddy Long ole an Armistice day message to!

GOVERNMENT TO THE V1EW.THAT HOHENZOLFJERN IS POUTICAL REFUGEE .TO BE PROTECTED. THE HAGUE, Nov. Emperor William came to Holland a year ago last Monday. Since that time there has been no demand, officially or unofficially, for his ex- tradition or delivery up to the allies, nor has Holland at all changed its viewpoint toward him. The Associated Press learned this Saturday from sources that are un- questionable. Holland's viewpoint regards William Hobenzollern may be stated franlcly as follows: The Netherlands, which for centuries has accorded political refuge to all, con- siders the former .emperor and the crown prince as as royalty, but as persons entitled, to the same rights as any plain Johana Schmidt.who fled to Holland during the war. The principle is so held by the government and also by the press of Holland nothing is likely to change it ,it is asserted. The-Dutch government has reach-., ed a determination as to its conduct in the event the surrender of Wil- liam Hohenzollern is asked for. No official statement has been made in this connection but the Associated' Press learns that Holland considers the former emperor beyond extra- dition, as there is no possible way legally to hold him as a criminal. If they desired to insist upon" the privilege, both the Hohenzollerns would be free 10 go where they liked, as they are in no sense pris- oners. However, because they feel that they would embarrass Holland even further, they apparently have agreed to remain where they now father at Amerongen and his son at-Wieringen. If the one-time emperor aad crown prince desired to return to Germany, they would be permitted to go. While It is possible that Frederick William some day may re- turn to-Oermany, official circles in The Hague are inclined to the belief that William Hohenzollern is con- tent to settle down to the life of a country gentleman at Doom, where he has been permitted to buy a small estate because his long stay at Amerongen seemed unfair to Count von Bentinck, whose castle he occupied. Altho a number of purported in- terviews with the former emperor have been published, the fact is that he never has spokn for publication since his arrival in Amerongen, and to the request of the Associated Press correspondent for a statement on the occasion of the anniversary of his taking refuge here, he sent a reply saying that he had not chang- ed his determination not. to speak.

WEATHER FORECAST WHY USE NEWSPAPER SPACE? The problem of any proposition seeking to win favor of the public, is to attract Attention, to get talked about. No public entertainment could get attention simply -by passing word about it from mouth to mouth. That is why people getting up any kind of a public assembly always rush to the newspapers the first thing. It is more" difficult for a man to his business talked about if he refuses to use newspaper space. No one is interested to help him secure this publicity.
