NU NEW RUSSIAN LOAN.
i:xoi'Gi[ rrxns ox iiaxd.
Xert Foreign Borrowing Will Have
St. Petersburg. Aug. 24.— Finance Minister
Kokovsoff to-day authorized a denial of the con
stantly recurring reports, both at home and
abroad, that Russia Intends to enter the foreign
market for a new loan this autumn. He said:
The government has ample funds In sight to
tide over the present year. IThe only loan oper
ation contemplated— namely, the $25,000,000 im
perial loan for famine relicf — was consummated
to-day by the signature of the Emperor. This
loan Is already being taken by the government
Even if we desired it. we realize that no for
eign loan could be advantageously floated with
out the assent of parliament, and you may state
emphatically that the government will not again
try to contract a foreign loan until parliament
approves It. Fortunately the treasury can see
daylight ahead until parliament again as
Indeed, the financial situation, a ■ it stands, is
better than we could have anticipated. The sur
plus for the first six months of the current year
will exceed the estimates by $50,000,000. and. as
the last six months always are the best from the
revenue standpoint, the excess for the year
should exceed $100,000,000, more than sufficient
to meet the extraordinary expenditures In con
nection with the suppression of the revolution,
which directly and indirectly hau cost In the
neighborhood of $5,000,000 a month.
With the proceeds of last spring's big loan,
which netted Russia only 83. although issued
at 88, and the surplus of revenues, we can
liquidate the war expenses, this year's deficit
and pay off $34,500,000 of exchequer bills still
due Germany and payable next month. This will
leave in addition some $30,000,000 of Interior
bills and $50,000,000 outstanding in France, but
the latter la not due until the beginning of next
The effect of the Viborg manifesto upon the
revenue will be practically nil. The direct taxes
paid by the peasantry are only for zemstvo and
local purposes, and none of them come to the
central government, whose taxes from the
masses are entirely indirect, the major item be
ing from the brandy monopoly, the revenue from
which. Instead of decreasing, increased $I<.
000.000 during the first six months of the year.
There is nothing alarming In the financial
situation, although in the final analysis every
thing depends upon political developments. Bad
politics makes bad finance.
It was further explained by M. Kokovsoff that
the big project for the distribution of 25.000.0C0
acres of land among the peasants, upon which
the government has decided Immediately to em
bark, from which great hopes of measurably ap
pealing to the discontented peasantry have been
built, does not Involve any charge upon the
The Peasant Bank will Issue in exchange for
land two species of scrip. With a view to pre
venting a flood of paper breaking the money
market too heavily before It can be absorbed, a
nominative scrip, bearing 6 per cent interest,
will be issued, the venders agreeing not to place
It upon the market for five years, while only 5
per cent debentures will be issued, payable to
The Emperor and the grand dukes will accept
the nominative scrip, and In effect the Imperial
family will simply convert their land holdings
Into 6 per cent securities and be relieved of all
the expense of management of crown lands and
appanages, which absorbs at present a large
share of their revenues.
The period of amortization through Instalment
payment by the peasants has not yet been
fixed. The majority opinion favors thirty-three
years, but smaller payments covering a period
as high as sixty years also are advocated. Un
til redeemed, the debentures and scrip will con
stitute a blanket mortgage.
In the process of the distribution of these
lands all the energy of the government will be
devoted to the dissolution of the existing com
munistic systems, which now cover two-thirds
of the peasant holdings, and allotments to the
peasantry will be made in severalty to Instil
respect for the principle of private property. If
successful, the government confidently expects
that the peasantry will bcome conservative and
set their faces against socialistic dreams of the
nationalization of land.

St. Petersburg. Aug. 24.— At a session of the
Cabinet to-night, which lasted several hours, the

all the means at command.

bers of parliament should be held on the same
date throughout the empire. Instead of over a
period of several weeks, as was the cass ln the

the government concentrating their efforts hi
various districts ln succession.

Edward A. Mosely. secretary 0? the commission,

new rate law to-day. Commissioner Lana said:
80 far as my observations nave extended, a dis
position Is manifested by all ran.^ad cornnar'.es to

officials, including attorneys, at Atlantic City a.n
effort was made to devise ways of evading— at leas-
In some respects— the operation of the law* but I
take the view expressed by Commissioner Clements.
that no concerted action will be taken by the rail
roads of the country to overturn the law. In the
West, particularly on the Pacific Coast, the rail
roads are making their arrangements to conform
to the new provisions as soon as Burnable. Nat
urally, questions of difference may arise from time
to time that may have to be adjusted la the courts
but the law will bo observed generally, beyond a
I suppose by the date when the act shall be
come elective nearly all of the members of the
Interstate Commerce Commission will be here, but
so far as I know, there will be no formal meeting
of the commission to determine upon a line of pol

adjustment of such questions as may arise we shall
be guided by our interpretation of the act.

an effort will bo made to obtain an amicable a l
justment of the controversy. Falling In this the

Interstate Commerce Commission. The Ohio
railroads now base all Interstate rates on the old
rate of three cents a mile.
