Mississippi Valley Concerns to
Take Advantage of
Trade Conditions
Memphis. Tenn., Aug. 22. A
visit to Latin-American countries
by Mississippi Valley concerns in
terested in taking advantage of new
trade conditions since the ending of
the war and to include representa
tives of Chicago. St. Louis, Mem
phis. Cincinnati. New Orleans and
many inland cities, is planned for
this fall and winter. Not less than
300 commercial, financial and busi
ness establishments are to be rep
It is proposed to make an exten
sive trip to ascertain by personal
observation the business conditions
and possibilities in South America
and how the Mississippi Valley can
best develop its trading interests
with the Latin states.
The movement was started by
the New Orleans Association of
Commerce, which already has dele
gated a committee to interest other
similar organizations and which al
so has taken up with the United
States Shipping Board the question
of obtaining a vessel for the trip.
It is the intent to start about
November, on a tentative itinerary
that will take the delegation to
Cuba, Jamaica, Santa Domingo.
Haiti, cities in Venezuela, Colom
bia, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Chile
and back through the Panama
It is quite certain from local in
formation, that Memphis and St.
Louis will bo well represented and
assurance has been obtained that
Chicago and Cincinnati will like
wise send a number of representa
tives. The proposal is of especial
interest in the lower Mississippi
Valley because of recent announce
ment and assurance that river
transportation is to be much im
proved as far north as Memphis
and St. Louis and likewise because
of rapid development of livestock
and agricultural progress in the
lower valley country.

Prince of Wales as
He Lands at Quebec
Quebec, Aug. 22.—Welcomed by
strains of "God Save the King," and
a royal salute from the guns in the
old citadel, the Prince of Wales
landed here last night for his first
visit to the ancient capital of French
He was brought ashore from the
battleship Ilenown and landed on
King's wharf.
The Prince, who was followed by
Sir Robert Borden, prime minister
of Canada, was greeted on the wharf
by the Governor General of Quebec,
the Duke of Devonshire, Cardinal
Begin, head of the Roman Catholic
church in this country, and Mayor
While the big guns were booming
their welcome, a series of pyrotech
nic bombs burst in the air above
him and at each explosion a flag of
one of the Allies was unfurled. A
squadron of airplanes circled above
the royal party.
At 6.15 the Prince and the Duke
of Devonshire motored together to
Upper Town, through Mountain Hill,
and St. Louis street. The Prince was
cheered by large crowds along the
route while church bells tolled their
Dr. Karl Muck, Held
as Interned Alien,
Returned to Germany
Now York, Aug. 22.—Dr. Karl
Muck, former conductor of the Bos
ton Symphony Orchestra, who had
been interned at Fort Ogelthorpe,
Ga., for several months because of
his pro-German sympathies, sailed
yesterday for Copenhagen on the
steamship Frederick VIII. He was
accompanied to the pier by an agent
of the Department of Justice, who
warned the captain of the steam
shin to see that Dr. Muck did not
get off the vessel inside the three
mile limit.
Dr. Muck's name was not on the
passenger list and he was not recog
nized until an enthusiastic fellow
countryman called him by name and
threw his arms around his neck and
kissed him. The musical director was
very bitter against the United States
It has been reported that Dr.
Muck asked to be deported now to
avoid involuntary deportation later
with other interned aliens under
legislation now pending in Congress,
so that he may be able to return
later to the United States.
