Greater Than Ever Before and Stead*
By Frederic dustin Ogg
N^recent years there has been a good deal of foolish, talk
. about the supposed decadence of Britain. Not a few Eng
lishmen have themselves fallen into grave doubts on the
subject As a matter of fact, the nation never possessed
elements of strength equal to those of today. A population
of 20,000,000 in 1815 has increased to one of 44,000,000. In
1815 the nation's accumulated wealth was under ?3,000,000
000; as late as 1845 it was only ?4,000,000,000; in 1882, ac
cording to Mulhall, it was ?8,720,000,000; today it is vari
ously estimated at from ?12,000,000,000 to ?15,000,000,000. The yearly ad
dition to this accumulated wealth in 1815 was ?00,000,000; today is it ?300,
000,000, or,six times as much.
The total foreign investment of British subjects, almost a negligible quan
tity a hundred years ago, is now estimated at ?2,700,000,000, upon which
there is an annual income of not less than ?140,000,000. During the. last six
years the placement of British capital in foreign countries, largely suspended
during the previous decade, has been resumed on a stupendous scale, greatly
'to the improvement of foreign trade, and distinctly to the encouragement of
public and private thrift. At least a hundred millloLs were invested abroad
in 1908,, and approximately the same amount in 1909. These are merely a
few of the more obvious evidences of the financiaL_power of the nation. Of
the ultimate ability of the British people to support a government twice as
lavish as any yet on record there can be not the remotest doubt Assum
ing that the principles of reasonable economy are to prevail, the one tower
ing question is as to how the public burden may best be adjusted so that the
15 percent of the population which receives 50 percent of the national,
income and possesses more than 90 "percent of the nation's aggregate wealth
may be made to bear its just share.-Review of Reviews. . .

HE most serious aspect of the depreciation of gold-or. to
word it more simply, of the great rise of gold prices-is that
it is stimulating the industrial development of Asia, with
eight hundred millions of people, and involves a competi
tion which, though little noticed thus far, is a menace to
our Western civilizations. The great abundance of the
new gold inllates our currencies, but there is no equivalent
inflation of the silver currencies of the far East. The re
sult is a great stimuus to all that Asia exports to us, and
if the rise of gold prices continues during the next quarter of a century, as I
believe it will, we shall hand over the control of many great industries-such
as steel and coal, cotton, leather and jute-to an awakening China. When I
think of the creations I have myself seen-the cotton mills of Bombay, the
jute mills of Calcutta, the boot factories of Cawnpore, and now this terribly
ominous competition of Hankow, Shanghai and Hong Kong-I find myself won
dering what white industries menaced by this murderous Mongolia compe
tition will survive. The coming competition of Chinese pig and steel must
keep the prices of pig and steel down here In the West to something like their
cost of production in China ^IUS freights, but there is. no such competition
in the case of perishable commodities-wheat, beef, bacon and butter. Thus
the necessaries pf life here must get the full uplift of the increasing depre
ciation of gold.

In the whole year, the report states,
1 passenger was killed for every

Captain Conrad of the United Sta
Washington, D. C.-Captain Cas
par H. Conrad,' of the Quartermaster's
department of the army, has suggest
ed a new method of marking horses
in order to enable the War Depart
ment to keep a record of them. For
several years the hoofs of the animals
have been numbered. This .method,
however, has not been satisfactory be
cause of the fact that the number of
ten wears off the hoof and is obliter
ated in other ways. Captain Conrad's
scheme is to tattoo the number on the
inside of the aulmal's lip. This sys
tem is in practice in the Quartermas

It is probable, however, that the
humane societies of the country will
raise objections to the proposed plan
of tattooing numbers on the Hps of
army horses. John P. Heap, secretary
of the local humane society, had this
comment to make on the subject:
"I cannot speak for the executive
committee and I cannot reach them
at this season to learn their views, but
it is my belief that the members
would disapprove any such system as
this. I would like to have data on
