the cessation of the war they look for
a gten*. and progressive improvement in
the borrowing power -.i the Allied na?

In interested quarters the statement
was made, in connection ??fith the

loan was to nay for munitions of war,
that England does not owe manufac

and that her whole expenditures here
on that account since tne beginning of ??
the war, including advance payments on
contracts, have not nmounted to moro
than 5 per cent on her total outlav in
the United States. This was taking
"munitions" in the sense of firearms
and explosives. There have boon other ;
purchases here for the British army :

shoes, etc., but for implement? of war
the figure given is a maximum.
