' St. Louis, Mq., Ocfc. 16 Senator
Warren, G.Harding, republican presiden
tial nominee, in a speech here today,
voiced his belief that America- must
give more serious thought to develop
ment of 'new foreign trade relations.
He urged that this country seek new
markets in South America and elsewhere
instead o Europe, which he said is
now impoverished. v
Senator Harding said, In part:"
y.. y ' -'i , - -. ')
. "Fellow Americans: The time has
comewhen this country must give more
serious thought to development of new
markets abroad. Ever since most of us
can remember we have been in the habit
of talking rather broadly and vaguely v
about. opening new markets in the world,
but all the time we have gone on devel
oping the old marrkets more and more
intensively and accomplishing compara
tively little toward the development of
, -. Problem For Ifearsl v
"So ;far baelf as 18"70$ seventy
eight per cent ofall of our exports
'went to Europe. There was talk com
monly, even then, of opening up new
markets abroad; but it produced so. lit-'
tie effect that in 1880 about eighty
five per cent of our exports went to
Europe. In 1890 it was around eighty
per cent and in 1900 it had dropped to
seventy per cent. In 190 it dropped
to sixty-five per cent. v .
ffIn 1919, sixty-JTour perN cent of
Our exports went to Europe; that is,
despite the huge avulsion of the war,
the proportion of .our expofrts whMch -went
to Europe remained almost . abso-
lutely unchanged, in 1919 as compared
With 1910. ; , , : N
"Considering that the war- com-
pelled Europe to turn to us for almost
everything, it must be apparent that iff
there had been no war the proportion of K
our exports 'that would have gone to
Europe iri the decade from 1910 to 1920
would have been vastly reduced. Either''
our exports would have suffered very
greatly or else we would have been com-
pelled. to find new markets, for them
outside of V Europe.
The Lesson Is Plain.
N "The lesson of all of this is
plain. Even bef breathe war, Europe was
tending to take a constantly-decreasing
proportion of tour exports. The war has:
so greatly lessened Europe's ability to
buy and pajr, and so greatly ' increased
Europe's necessity to sell, that we '
must expect hereafter a still .further
indisposition by Europe to, buy from us.
"We must turn,- then, to new mar
kets, and.it is not difficult to decide
where these must be found. Before the
war started in Europe, we were buying
from South Xmerica, year by year, about
twice as much as we were" selling to
South America. We were buying from
Asia in about the same proportion in
fact, we were buying rather more then
twice as much from Asia as we wefce
selling to Asia. From Oceania pur
purchases were approximately twice as
much, as were our sales to Oceania;
while in the case of Africa, our sales
end purchases pretty nearly balanced.
The Obvious Cause.
"Obviously we must hope to ex- ,
tend our markets in those countries
from "which we buy most extensively and
between which and us the balance of '
trade is against us. South . Amerioa,
Asia, Africa, the" islands of the sea
can buy from us, because they owe us
great trade balances. ) t '
"I Undertake to, say that .our own
' .government has signally failed to ex
' tend to its industrial and) commercial
enterprises anything Hike the sort of
encouragement, and support that have

also, testified that she can notaive

Because of this condition she will be
permitted to die in Jail instead of be

For the first time in the history
of the oounty Jail, a Jury deliberated
in the death chamber as to the guilt or
innocenoe'of a prisoner.
The Rosebud" was brought into the
chamber, strapped to a stretoher. She
was seized with fits of melancholy and
violent laughter in rapid succession.

" : Country Club Robbery
"I, Slmlfar 2fi Caruso l&efi. '
New York, Oct. i4 Investigators
of the Sleepy Hollow Country Club gem
robbery assert that there is great sim-"
ilarity between it and the theft of . the
Caruso gems last June.
It is the common belief that the
guiding mind in the theft of $50Q,000
worth of Jewels from the boudoir of Mra
' Caruso is the same which engineered' the .
present robbery. ''
William J. Burns, who is in charge
of the thief chase, announced his be
lief that- the robbery was an "outside -
job." He said:
"I base my theory that it was ,an
: outside job on the fact that we found
tracks of at least one person fleeing
from the crime.' Marks on the stone ,
pillarsof the porch on the south1 sLde
of the club house on which the thief
ascended, are an indication that it was
an outside Job." ; . .

Washington, Oct. 16 A few select
rules for marriage were given today, by
Mildred Harris .Chaplin, wtib has; arrived .
here in connection with the promotion
of one of her moving pictures. ' The
piles are: ) ' '
Do not marry a genius if you want
to be happv though married. ' '
Do not marry too young.
A girl should he at least 23 be
fore' she thinks seriously of, marriage.
No actress either in legitimate,
drama or in the motion pictures should
marry a member of her own profession if
she wants to be happy.
Mrs. Chaplin added that "Charlie
was simply buried in his1 own genius and
did not think. of me." She admitted that
she was too young to know her own raind
when she married and added, "I donH
knpw it now for that matter." '

along West Madison and South Clark
streets today for the proprietors of
"cagesj" and "flops", the hotels of. the
hoboies and bums, have raised the rates
from the' good old days when the drifter
could get a "flop", meaning thereby, a
space chalked off on the floor or per
:h&ps a wooden bunk, providing the house
was not too full, for 10 cents to 25
cents. t i
"We had to make a slight advance,
.said the proprietors. "The price of
coal and bedbug exterminator has more
than doubled, and blankets cost four
times whkt they formerly did. We are
not breaking even. At this, these
hoboes can afford well to pay more.They
are now getting $4 or $5 whenever they
: choose to work and, they, could pay. a
