Washington, Aug. 1.-No relief from
-Present high prices is forecast in the
federal reserve board's monthly re
view-of business eqnditions, issued to
4day which notes that July saw further
increases in many lines.
"In general," the review said, "there
is a disposition to accept present.price

the prevailing levol for some time to
In many districts high prices have
*not served to check demand, but the
)ossibliity of obtaining goods was
found to be of greater moment to the
.buyor *than the price fixed. On the
*other hand, the boa'rd said, tho "very
-great" price increases which have
taken place in certain lines have made
buyers more caatious, care being tak

.,ear a decline might occur.

"Instead of a fear of unemploymen1,

were said to be large. Raw wool still
is in heavy demand and revival in

Turning to the financial -situation,
the board declared that while specu
lation continued at an unprecedented
ly high level, an investment demand
for stocks has revealed itself, leading
to the withdrawal of an unusual
amount of shares from the market.
The banking situation was reported

Atlanta: "Practically all lines of

Chicago: "While merellandising and

HEARING HELD .ON
Senator Smith Urges that Potash from
Europe be Permitted to be Shipped
Washington, July 31.-Tronah- pot
ash came up for a hearing today be
fore Vance McCormick, chairman of
the war industries board. Mr. Mc
Cormick reserved his decision, but ap
peared very much impressed 'with the
argument of Senator H. D. Smith and
of Senator Freylinghuysen, of Now
Jersey, both of whom advocated lift
ing the embargo so that potash from
Alsace and from Germany might be
shipped into this country.
Attorneys and o~'Icers of the com
bination of companies manufacturing
domestic potash appeared and pre
sented their case strongly. They stat
ed tlia.t they hdd thien induced to put
$50,000,000 into the nanufaciture be
cause there was no potasi available
when we went to war with Oerifany.
They asked for the .embargo to be kept
in force for at least thrce months
Potato growers from Maine and
New Jersby were present in number
to protest against American potash
having a monopoly. They said that
they were compelled to have the hn
ported Potash, and that many potato
growers had retired from business
because they could not get the proper
kind of salts.
Senator Smith iresented photo
graphs made by the South Carolina
department of agriculture to show
how tobacco ind cottn felds had
been ruined by tho application of
tronah potash. le argued that all
of tho product of the domestic plants
plus the amount that could be
shipped into the country would not
he enough to sulpply the farmers of
the south, whose lands are greatly in
need of potash. Ile thought the needs
of hundreds of thousands of farmers
should be considered before the com
plaints of the mnanufasturers.
The reumnion of he Sullivan family
connection and frkinds will be held
at Lebanon church, Greenville county,
on August 7, 1919.
