AfURPHT SCRE OF -COPY."
*UT HE'S AFRAID THAT WASHINGTON
COUNTY LETTER HAS BEEN DE
THAT IT IS A FORGERY.
Ex-Senator Edward Murphy, jr., of Troy, nov."
undoubtedly wishes he hadn't picked up the hot
poker forgery exploited on Friday night by the
Democratic State Executive Committee. It
turned the lingers of every . Democrat that had
anything to do with it yesterday, and the end
ia not yet. Benjamin B. Odell, jr., chairman of
the Republican State Committee, followed up
hi 3 denunciation of the "corruption" letter with
• shot that made Mr. Murphy and Mr. Mc-
Guire exceedingly uncomfortable. Mr. Odell re
turned to this city, as he said he would, and
•with reference to hiß alleged offer to a Wash
ington County Republican to pay the expense
involved in "converting" Independent Demo
crats, had this to pay:
1 desire to reiterate my etatcment made over
the telephone from Newburg last night that no
*uch letter ever emanated from these headquar
ters. 1 never authorized, dictated, wrote or
j=iprned it. and I am sure that no one connected
v>i:h tho State Headquarters with authority
from myself, Mr. Barnes, chairman of our Ex
ecutive Committee, or Mr. Fox. secretary of the
committee, •r any one else connected with State
Committee Headquarters, f=ent out such a letter.
The whole thine: is a lie. and the alleged letter
le a base and clumsy forgery. If Mr. McGulre
or any one in authority at Democratic State
Headquarters desires to become gponsor for
this libel I will Imme&lately give him an
opportunity to prove the same. This is one of
the many Democratic attempts which we have
V>een looking for to win votes by deceit and
Ex-Senator Murphy made a somewhat weak
kneed explanation of how he considered himself
Justified in exploiting a political document which
has all the appearances of a clumsy forgery,
Before starting for Troy yesterday he said:
You may say that the letter In question is a
copy of the original one, and that it was made
by four reputable Democrats who saw the orig
inal in the hands of the Republican to whom It
•was addressed. This Republican boasted of his
*'pul!" with the Republican State leaders and
flaunted the paper in the faces of every one
near him. I cannot at this time make public
the names of the men who saw the letter and
copied It. but I will produce them as witnesses
any time the Republicans? want them to speak.
My informant tells me that this letter was sent
to each committeeman in the State. We are
ready to meet Mr. Odell on the issue, and I be
lieve the copy of the letter to be a correct one.
There Is no doubt that the letter has been de
■troyed by this tim<\ and that the man who
made it public has 1 een coerced into denying
It, but we can bring three reputable citizens
licre who will testify as to the letter. I think
that th» signature, "chairman of the Republican
Stat.- Committee" in the letter may be a mis
take, but T am confident that the body of the
letter. : n substance at least, is absolutely cor
rect. My informant, who tur::--tl a copy of the
letter over to me. tells me that a letter was
*ent to the commltteeman In each county of the
State from the Republican State Committee
Headquarters asking that the names of four life-
Jong Republicans b<- given, four from each elec
nion district. In response to this request the
jiames of four stalwart Republicans were sent
srom Greenwich. The man who made the letter
jmblic was one of thr.sr who^e name was sent in.
Before Baecvttve Chairman McGulre gave out
th» questionable letter on Friday r.ight he con
sulted with Richard Croker, and It was not until
«fter Mr. Croker had given him authorization
that he released the document. Mr. Croker was
ir. Mr. Murphy's room at the Hoffman House
yesfrday when Mr. Murphy made his statement
to the reporters, and when asked what he knew
Rbout the l<--tt.-r. said:
"I kr.nw nothing of the letter. It is a matter
for tjv? State Committee. It is in line, however.
Miih the new tyle of business adopted by the
I'.epublicais. I wouldn't be surprised at any
thing: the Etepubllcans attempted."
. Executive Chairman McGuire said: ■ -
"I lnve no doubt that the letter Is sub
stantially correct. l have telegraphed to the
three men'in Greenwich to prepare immediately
R&davltt arri to £!•<*! . if possible, possession "f
Mr. Murphy's suggestion that th? letter has
undoubtedly been destroyed by this time shows

HOSTS TO BE TX LINE.
THE BOUND MONEY PABADH PROMISES
TO BE A DEMONSTRATION OF IM
The officers of the Business Men's Republican
and Sound Money Association now believe that
the Sound Money parade on Saturday, Novem
ber 3, will be the biggent political demonstra
tion of the kind ever witnessed in this country.
The officers of the association say that probably
one hundred and fifty thousand men will march
up Broadway. Applications for places In the
line were etlll being received yesterday at the
office of E. A. Drake, the secretary of the asso
ciation, at No. X Pearl-et. Letters are being
sent to Mr. Drake daily by marshals of divisions
that their previous estimates of the number of
men to march were too low, and badges must
be provided for more men.
To-morrow Mr. Drake will have a conference
with President Vreeland of the Metropolitan
Street Railway Company, and secure. If possi
ble, a suspension of car traffic in Broadway and
on the Twenty-third-st. crosstown line from 9
a. m. on November 3 until the last company of
the Sound Money parade passes the reviewing:
stands at Madison Pquare. During the parade
Broadway will be filled with the marching
hosts, making traffic there impossible, and the
procession will cross Twenty-third-st. for hours,
blocking car traffic there.
General E. L. Molineux has been selected as
marshal of the drug, chemical, paint and oil di
vision of the parade, with Andrew E. Rogers
as chief of staff and George J. Peabury. J. B.
Homer. Samuel W. Fairchi:d, R. P. Row? and
E. B. V. Huntington as section commanders.
About one hundred flags have been set flying
In Broadway by merchants interested in tho
ccming parade, and about as many more will be
displayed in Broadway this week. The Coal
Trade Club is making- preparations to unfurl a
large flag to-morrow from a pole that has been
erected opposite N<>. 1 Broadway.
A large delegation of Columbia University
students will be in the parade. As the students
in the law division, day and evening sessions,
of the New-York University have almost unani
mously consented to march in the parade, they
will proportionately make one of the best show
ings in lino. The Parade Committee. Phiup
Mark Bremberg and Edgar H. Mead, have
been working energetically, and It is through
their efforts that the Law .School, out of a total
of about six hundred men, will have a showing
t:f between four hundred and five hundred.
The commercial travellers will maivh in a
separate !">dy. AH commercial men desirous of
joining their division must apply at their head
quarters. No. TiT Broadway, at once, so that
proper assignments may be made. At the
meeting of the Executive Committee yesterday
npplication was received for an organised body
of commercial men numbering 4."x(, with their
<>\\ n band.
STOVE MEN ENTHUSIASTIC.
The Furnace. Range and 8tov« Manufacturers'
Sound Money Leag-tie, which took part In the
sound money parade four years ago, has been re
organized and a great deal of interest Is being
shown by the members in the coming election.
They heive recently strung a McKinley and Roose
velt banner in Water-st., near Fulton. The stove
and furnace manufacturers recognize the import
ance of maintaining the present sound financial
system which has brought so much prosperity to
their industry and are almost unanimous for Me-
r J he remarkahle fact has been shown that al
though one-half of the stove men are Democrats
rlmost all in the trade have enrolled under the

BIG DEMAND FOR CARNATIONS.
THOSE TO r.K USED IN THE BOUND MONEY
PARADE WILL COST 175.000.
The florists of New-York have apparently mad*
a flat rate of $S0 a thousand for the carnations to
be used on November 3 by the Sound Money parad
ers, and the bill for pinks will be the tidy sum of
KB.OM. The expense will fall on each particular
branch of commerce or Industry represented In
the parade. There will be no diffleultv In supply
ing the flowers. The Western florists have volun
teered to furnish any amount needed by the local
wholesalers, and the New-York flower dealers say
that they cou'.d furnish 2'.<o,>y'o carnations. The un
usual demand, however, has "bullfd" the price at
least 25 per cent.
Mr. Flelschman, the Broadway florist, in com
menting on the great demand for carnations, said:
There will be no trouble In getting all the carna
tions needed. I alone could furnish 75,000, with the
necessary advance notice. Where the Bowers are
so far along that they need to be picked a few days
before they are re«lly needed for use they can be
placed in the storehouses, and when needed they
will be in Srat class condition. The buds can be
huiried alori*. The "McKinley" and "Roosevelt"
pinks are not of a specie* particularly hard to
grow, and they are not. therefore, especially ex
pensive. It would cost a pretty penny if the 1: -
publicans in line on November ■■ all wora Lawsons.
for Instance. There are a dozen in the window
there which were ordered a few minutes ago by a
patron of oure. They cost him $22. There may be
trouble in supplying tne demand for carnations if
tho persons responsible fcr ordering them wait till
the last day or two. An unexpected order tor 25.000
on the day of the parade might clean out all the.
flower stores in town, but if the necessary notice
Is given In advance it will be easy to get the 150,000.
A manufacturer of Imitation carnations called
on Joseph H. Manley and Senator Scott at Repub
lican National headquarters last week with a
proposition to supply paper flowers at cut rates.
"You can't tell the difference till you smell V-m "
said the man. Mr. Manley told him Republicans
wanted the "really truly" pinks, and referred blm
to the managers of the parade.

NO BRYAN MONEY IN WALL STREET.
No bets on the Presidential election wer« made

NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. SUNDAY, OCTOBER 21. 1900.
KANSAS TO GO REPUBLICAN.
PREDICTION THAT M'KINLBY WILL
CARRY THE STATE BT FOURTEEN
Toptka. Kan.. Oct. 80 (Special).— The Question
asked in Kansas to-day is not, "Do you think Mc-
Klnie: .vlii carry the Bute?" but 'How much ma
jority do you think M. Kinky will have?" To be
sure, iite Kusionists claim the State, or ai leas! th<-
Populist State Committee does, asserting that the
Btat< win" sjo for Bryan hy 12,'Vio, but th.- Popunsts
ami Democrats seem to place BO reliance what
ever upon that statsmant ;md concede the State
to McKlnley, but have ■ strong h.»i't- that they
will defeat the re-election of Gtovemor Stanley.
The n.-arer the approach to Klection Day UM
better the chances appear to be for the election of
the whole Republican ticket by a plurality ruii
nlng Into tho thousands. The general opinion seems
to be that McKlnley will have a larger rote than
Stanley, simply because a great many Populists
and Democrats will vote for MeKtnley Who will
not vote any other part of the Republican ticket
The Democrats have brought suit against State
Treasurer Grimes, alleging that lie has taken in
terest on State money deposited In banks, out
they have not made even a decent showing fnr in
stituting the suit, and, like most Democratic ef
forts, it is a hoomerai'K:.
The voters of Kansas are wide awake to the main
Issues Involved in the campaign, and will not b«
led astriiy— prosperity, protection and Rood money
are all summed up in McKlnley and the flag, which
la the Republican watchword in Kansas. The Fu-
FioniFts cannot recover from the shock that tho
full dinner pail has given them, and the fear of
trusts will not supplant the knowledge that Kan
sas farmers are getting pood prices for their sur
plus cattle, hogs, wheat and corn.
For comparison, hero are the election fißUies to
show what Kansas did arid what she will proba
bly do in November: In 18M the vote was: McKln
ley, 159,5-U: Bryan, 171.810; Prohibition, 2.ool; Na
tional Democracy, 3.200; Bryan's plurality, 32.269:
total vote, 335,111. In 1898, lor Governor; Stanley
ißep.), 149,282; F.ecdy (Fusion), 13U5S; Prohibition.
~.iil; scattering, 2,695; Stanley's plurality, 15,134:
total vote, 388,482.
There will be a large vote thl? year, and most
people think it will reach 340,000. The Socialists
have a ticket in the field, but there is no National
Democratic ticket, neither is there any Middle of
the Road Populist ticket. General R. C. Bradshaw,
a loading Socialist, who took an active part in the
Deba movement, and who was formerly a Bryan
supporter, is well known as a close calculator on
elections. He makes- the following prediction as to
th< result in Kansas-: McKinley, 179,489; Bryan, 159.
597; Socialist and Prohibitionist vote (combined),
»'.:'.?!; total votd, 345.237; Republican vote, .i.'.n per
cent. Many Republican leaders to whom this esti
mate was snid they thought the total votti
would not be. quite so large, but otherwise they be
lieved the figures would prove a pretty accurate
Tho contest for United States Senator between
Lucien Baker, ihe present Incumbent, and J. R.
Burton has been a spirited one, and the friends of
each ass. rt a sufficient number of Republicans will
be elected to the Legislature to elect a Republican
T T nite<l States Senator, and that their man will win.
There are also many Republicans who predict that
neither of them will secure a majority of the cau
cus, and thaf a third candidate may carry off the
nomination. In that case the political finger would
point strongly tow.-ird Congressman Charles Curtis.
JOINT DEBATE AT FREDONIA.
LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR WOODRUFF AND
MONROE ECHOLS ADDRESS A
Dunkirk, N. T.. Oct. 20.— Lieu tenant-Governor
Woodruff addressed a crowd of 5,000 persons at the
double barbecue in Fredonla this afternoon. "I
have been looking forward to this meeting 1 in Fre
donia," he said, "because I understood it was to be
a joint debate. 1 am a business man, preferring
that distinction to any other I have gained In life.
I do not covet tho title of politician, and, being
alive, I cannot be a statesman. Thomas B. Reed
once denned a 'statesman* as a successful poli
tician who Is dead. I do not care to be called an
agriculturist because of being- president of the
Stntn Fair Commission, preferring to be called a
farmer, for there is a distinction between an agri
culturlst and a farmer. The farmer is one who
works the farm, and an agriculturist one who
works the farmer." Continuing, he said: "There
are no trusts, the term trust being 1 as much a mis
nomer as Is Imperialism. There are no trusts and
th«re is no Imperialism. The word trust grew out
of the old trust agreements by which interests
were pooled. They have long ceased to exist."

nEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE.
Chicago, Oct. 20. -J. K. Jones, chairman of the
Democratic! National mmittee, has Issued a
statement replying to the references by Governor
Roosevelt and others to the American Cotton Co»n
pany. of which Senator Jones is an officer nnd
which. It is charged. is a trust. In his statement
Senator Jones snii:

MARYLAND AGAINST BRYAN.
HE WILL PAY THAT STATE A FLYIXtt
VISIT THIS WEEK. BUT IT WTT.T.
DO HIM NO GOOD.
Baltimore. Md.. October 20 (Special) - The Demo
cratic managers have been making p;itheti<- appeals
for funds with which to defray the expenses of
Bryan's flying tour through Maryland next week.
There is no Richard Croker here to assess the ilives
and saloonkeepers for funds for a big fireworks dis
play. Bryan will have few pyrotechnics In alary
land. None of the prominent Democrats are cor»
tributlng a dollar to the campaign. Several busi
ness men. who in the Hszrer.nto gave $13,000 to the
Democratic State campaign fund last fall, have this
year turned a deaf ear to Chairman Vandlver'a
appeals, and have given their money to th<» Honest
Money Democratic League for the McKinley cam
paign. As a result, the Democratic- State Com
mittee Is begging for contributions of SI and up
ward. To a certain extent, however, these ap
peals are a bluff. The committee has funds for
the really legitimate expenses of th-? campaign,
but the managers are lukewarm toward Bryan.
At heart, Gorman. Governor Smith and Chairman
Vandlver do not care whether he Is elected or not
if only they can keep Intact the State organization
for the big fight next year for the Legislature, be
fore which Mr. Gorman will again be a candidate
for United States Senator to succeed Mr. Welling
ton. Charges are therefore freely made that the
committee is reserving funds from the Bryan cam
paign for next year's expensive fight.
Mr. Bryan will cross the Maryland border next
Tuesday. The committee will keep him on the
Jump. If Bryan la to carry Maryland he must do
the greater part of the work himself. His close
friends have made that fact clear to him. From
"Washington, D. C. he will be escorted by members
of the State Committee to Frederick City, in the
western part of the State. Thence he will be
rushed toward Baltimore, speaking at every town
on the way. The same night he will make two
speeches ln this city, at midnight be hustled aboard
a steamboat and shipped across the bay to th«
Eastern Shore, where on Wednesday he will make
several speeches, and then be turned over to the
The silver men would like Bryan to discuss that
issue ln Maryland, but the State Committee has
Informed him that every word uttered for silver ln
Maryland will lose him votes.
Meanwhile the Republicans* prospects Improve.
The confidence of the people Is reflected in the odds
offered by the betting fraternity on McKinlpy
carrying Maryland At first it was even money,
then the Bryan end began moving down slowly
but surely, until 10 to 6 is offered with no takers.
If the Democratic leaders had any hopes, that fact
would be known by those who are usually advised
when to plunge. Up to date no such advice ha*
been received, and until It docs come there will be
Chairman Goldsborough of ths Republican State
Committee ia particularly pleased with the regis
tration in the counties. Hitherto no concerted ef
fort has been mado to get out the vote, but this
time a thorough organization was perfected, and, as
a result, hundred? of new names have been placed
upon the booka. The returns thus far received In
dicate a heavy Republican gain outside of Balti
The outlook in the city is also decidedly encour
aging. A careful review of the figures shows that
the Republicans have tho best of it. An unfailing
barometer is the colored vote, i This Indicates
whether the party is united or divided. Whenever
the registration Indicates an increased colored vota
there is reason to believe that the Republicans are
together. It Is a aure sign. Another encouraging
feature Is the fact that the gains were made ln
those sections inhabited by the better classes. That
is to say, the resident section showed an increase,
while tn the slums there was either a decrease or
no gain at all. Again, in those precincts usually
heavily democratic, there was no appreciable dif
ference between the number registered this year
and last fall, while In Republican and independent
strongholds the gains were most pronounced.
Of the 113,219 registered in Baltimore City ln 1539
104,835 voted. As there were registered this year, in
round numbers. 120,000, it is expected that at least
112,<j00 will exercise tho right of franchise. Gov-
rnor Smith, who headed the Democratic ticket last
fall, obtained oa,tli> votes, and Governor Lowndea.
th« Republican candidate, 47.3;5, the remainder be
ing scattered among the Prohibition and other can
didates. To win the city the Democrats will have
to Improve upon the vote of last fall, and from
present Indications they will be fortunate if they
hold their own. It must be remembered that the
party was united last year. An attempt had been
made to inject National issues into tho campaign,
tut it fulled, and Gold Democrats, llge General Gill,
Douglas H. Thomas, Lloyd L. Jackson, Randolph
Barton and hundreds of others, not only supported
the Democratic ticket, but openly urged its elec
tion. There was no Sound Money organization at
tacking the party candidate. Kvery Democrat was
in line, all pulled together, and the full party vote
It must be conceded that the conditions now pre
vailing are vastly different. Hundreds, yes. thou
sands, of those who voted for Governor Smith will
decline to vote for Bryan, and the latter surely
cannot expect any Republican votes. Indeed, it ia
a ciueetion now whether any Democratic candidate
can win without the help of Independent Repub
licans, as well as Independent Democrats. The
municipal election proves this. No Democrat can
deny that many Republicans voted for Mayor
Hayes, and yet the latter polled only 57.661 votes,
against 49.02S cast for Mr. Malster, Republican.
The slightest defection, therefore, in tither party
means certain defeat, provided, of course, the op
position is united. On this occasion it is the Demo
cratic party which Is in trouble, and hence it will
go to the wall on November 6.
Too much credit cannot be given to the Sound
Money Democratic League for the assistance ren
dered the Republican organization. Its work has
been entirely independent of that performed by the
Republican Campaign Committee, and in a differ
ent tWd. While tho regular committee has been
engaged In doing the necessary practical work.
such as orsranizinc tho wards and Inducing party
men to register, the Sound Money men have been
hammering Bryan an<l Bryanism. They operate
nmons the tiainkers, who are not swayed by party,
but who vote for the man who represents and will
protect their Interests. In other words, the Sound
Money men are instructing, and their efforts are
meeting with groat success. Many a business man
who voted the Democratic ticket last fall but who
has* not yet declared himself, will deposit a Mc-
Kinley ballot. In a quiet way the league his also
polled a number of factories, to determine the
sentiment of the working classes, and have ob
tainoil a lino which enables It to dlagno«e the
situation. Not on!y has the work been done tn th«
city, but throughout the Stats as well. Every
county has been thoroughly canvassed, wtthout any
bras* band accompaniment. The league Is still at
work, and win continue its labors until the sun
gops down on Election Day.
Republican leaders Intimate that the PssjsSuists
in several of the counties will be much surprl*.
when the returns come In. They base this opinion
on Information received at headquarters. There
are counties on the Eastern Shore, which are e»
p#.'ted to furnish Democratic majorities but which
will cro the other way. About the only sure things
in FiKht across the bay for the Democrats are
Worcester and Queen Anne counties, and neither
of these will give the majorities furnished last
In the lid District the Democratic slump w'll
also be pronounced, especially tn Carroll County
There are more Democrats In Westminster to-day
ajrain«t Bryan than there were In 1596 in-1 the

cheerful, whfch they do, while the commission
houses are also feeling good over the Increase
The market paid no attention to Mr. Bryan',
visit. It was recognized that Mr. Croker ha<l
given him a great reception, as ho was expected
to do: but It left the political situation un
changed, except as Mr. Bryan improved It fo
the Republicans by the character of hla speeches
—especially that part of them assuring us that
the Government wanted to build a large fort
near the city to overawe us.
Assuming that the market continues to ad
vance for the next ten days or two weeks, which
f* promises to do, we must be prepared to see a
good deal of realizing done on the election it
self; and some people, being lame, may start a.
little before the voting begins. Looking ever
and beyond, however, the temporary setback
which speculative realizing will assured: bring
on Bryan's defeat, we may anticipate a gradual
advance of prices afterwards which wlil equal

The rise during the past week has b«»»n well
■llatributed. The heavy trading was in the rail
roads, including the tra<"
industrials, in the steel stocks. On a genera!
average, it may be said that the railroads are
up from 2 to 3 points; the tractions, about 3
points; the steel stocks, about 4 points. There
was large buying- one day of the Vanderbilt
stocks, giving rise to reports that the Vanler
bilts were buying; but our best inform -i
that tlie Vanderbilts are not active in the mar
ket at this time. There are plenty of interests
affiliated with *'.-.cm. however, which are. -To
terday's market h?<l the earmarks of Mr. Mor
gan on it. It was the Morgan buying of North,
era Pacific on Friday and Saturday a -week ago,
which gave the tip, so to speak, to other people;
who thereupon resumed the buying which th»j
had temporarily suspended on fears of trouble
in the money market.
The buying of Union Pacific and Atchisca has
been thoroughly good. Both preferred and com
mon stocks have been In demand. Union Pa
cific common was up to 62 yesterday. . There
ought to be five points In this and In Atchison
preferred between now and election, if the gen
eral market goes right. If It does rot come be
fore Bryan is defeated, such an advance may
be looked for sure after it; and some more points
on the top of the five. For Union Pacific. 7(> has
already been mentioned as a conservative esti
mate. The stock is paying 4 per cent, and earn
ing much more than that. Atchtsop preferred
is paying 5 per cent and earning .eprseattag- Ids
the common stock. ■ . • .-; ;* ta»j»
The Southern stocks also ought W-CT we" fn
any general movement at the flr&rWtt.tat'Ahe
cotton crop and the big price 3 obtained for)t tii'.s
year, should Increase the earnings o? all the
roads running through the cotton growing sec
tions. Louisville and Nashville, and the Soujhsm
Railroad, are already reporting considerable in
creases, although comparison Is made with bis;
earnings last year. Cotton is king again this
year, and is "making exchr.: ia the iscs:
In the steel stacks, the :.=»
mainly to the people who ar-> in Urn UsAl tilt
is, the people prominent in the f
and Steel Wire companies. These companies
are not likely to tarn as much as they did last
year, because the prices of their
lower; but they ought to earn enough to par
their dividends. Federal Bttd, common and
preferred, have been carried by Urn latest op
ward movement, above the Steel Wire stoeta.
The latter were the first t« move. BWtf the outers
have made better running.
When the Vanderbilt stocks were on the raw*
with New York Central in the lead, quite a Bt*
demand sprang" up for Lake Erie and Western,
for Canada Southern and the Nickel Plates.
This gave rise to rumors of a new deal comisT.
credited, of course, to Mr. Morgan. It was sali
of Lake Erie and Western that the stocks were
to be retired and a low rate bond given fcr
them; another Lake Shore arrangement, in fKt,
on a small scale. Probably the Nickel Piates
will some day be disposed of in this way. Th»
present division Into first, second and coinswa
stocks Is very unsatisfactory. Pennsylvasli
and B. & O. advanced, with considerable trad
ing in them. The soft coal trade ia tlti special
bull argument now on these latter propertla*.
The money question, which two or three wee&s
ago looked as If it might become very trouble
scme, is solving Itself in a way most satis
factory to the bankers and others. To what ex
tent one country has credits or indebtedness
with other countries is always a matter of n
jecture until the test is applied: and the ban ll
people say it has been found now that at tlu*
time our credits abroad are so large that «•
can draw money as wanted. Only a s'.'sht •*"
vance in Interest rates here suffices to la:*^
gold. It is only a question. in short, whether at
any time It Is more profitable to let the money
remain abroad or draw it home. Australia!
and South African gold la coming here direct,
but it 1» drawn through London Just the saaae—
merely being diverted en route. With such a con
dition of foreign credits, a squeeze in money »
considered to be out of the question. A rate o
