THE FIFTH LOAN.
The Fifth (lovprnnicnt Loan, which

sprlnp. will flml American In till
walks of life In purticulntly j?0"tl Muipe
to participate largely.
This, It Is pointed out by thu Gov
ernment authorities, In fortumite, for
Tnclo Sntu will hnve to ndi for a very
large amount In order to meet his re
maining military outlays. The pro
ceeds of the Fourth Liberty Loan were
all exhausted by December 1, and
slnco then the Government has been
borrowing monny from the banks to
meet Its current bills. These have
been heavier since the signing of tho
armistice than before, as tho liquidat
ing of the war machine necessarily
entailed a considerable augmentation.
Tho American people In tho first
three Government loans, furnished the
monoy with which to construct tho
war machine The Fourth loan saw
It well Into tho victorious drlvo that
ended tho war. Hut tho concluding
battles, tho weeks of oxponslvo delay

of tho men who aro to bo discharged,
and tho liquidating of tho war con
tracts must all bo paid for with money

The record of business failures in
tho United States for tho year 1018
shows that American business men
aro In splendid shape to make largo
subscriptions to the Fifth Loan. Tho
twclvo months Just closed say only
9,982 failures. This compares with
13,855 in 1917. 10.933 In 1910, and 22,
150 In 1915. This shows, for 1918, a
55ft decrease. Tho total Is tho
smallest slnco 1899, when there wero
9,337 failures. Hy reason of tho
great Increase in tho number of busi
ness houses In tho country slnco
1899, the 1918 failures aro lelatlvoly
even much smaller than then.

TION REGARDING REG
ISTRATION OF BONDS
Important information concerning
tho registration of Liberty Loan bonds,
as given out by tho bond department
of tho Fcdornl Hcscrvo Bank of Chi
cago contains tho following quotation
from a letter from tho Treasury de
"With refereuco to accepting sub
scriptions for bonds to bo registered
lit tho names of persons giving only
initials rather than tho full namo, I
havo to say that It is tho intent of tho
Department, not for Its own sake, but
for tho sake of holders of registered
bonds, to havo them registered In such
manner as to cnnblo tho said holders,
or their legal representatives, to dls
poso of them in tho simplest and
readiest manner. Bonds issued to
womon under their initials, or under
tho initials of their husbands, nro not
readily transferable In enso of tho
death ot tho holder.
"Though letters of administration
would bo issued in tho legal namo of'
tho deceased, nnd tho bonds would bo
Inscribed in her namo, under her In
itials, or those of her husband, as tho
caso might bo. Tho letters of admin
istration and tho bonds would not
ngrco ns to tho namo, and thoroforo
tho administrator of Mrs. Sarah A.
Smith, say, would havo to provo that
sho and Mrs. Thomas W. Smith (or
Mrp. S. Smith) wero ono and tho samo
porson. It Is to avoid troubles of this
character that tho Department Jias In
sisted on receiving tho legal namo of
persons subscribing for registered
"Of course, tho Department cannot
rofuso to issuo bonds under Initials If
tho parties interested insist upon it,
hut it is requested that you, In all
cases whero It Is possible, insist on
receiving tho full nnmes of persons
subscribing for registered bonds.'"
