HL'KNOS AIKKS, Oct. -Hipolito Irigoyen, who will become president of Argentina Oct 12, is reported de voting all his time to the stud' o'* hi** country's lmancial coiulition. in t**«t. cipation of post-bellum money and trade troubles. This is only a rejiort, for the presi dent-eleet is such a hermit that al most nobody knows exactly what In* is doing. He is living at present at bis city residence in llucno Aires instead of on Ids ranch. Hi* town house is presided over by a very old Spanish woman, with no more idea of polities than an armadillo. The numerous ex alted personages who want to see Iri goyen have to seek appointments through the medium of this amici. dame. They are -seldom successful However, the report concerning the president-elect's financial studies rests on excellent authority. Though times are hard in Argen tina, the country, from a money standpoint, is basically in an excellent* condition. It has one of the largest gold reserves, proportionately, of any country in the world. Irigoyen is said to believe, however, that the South American republics will face a situation of grave stress at the end of the war in Kurope which, presumably, will come some time early in his administration. lit* is beileved to hold that the ques tions of finance and of population will bo mingled; and that immigration to Argentina must be encouraged. That is. though the country has money enough and immense potential resources, it has a population of only 7,000,000 to developc an available agri cultural territory almost as large as the whole area drained by the Missis sippi and Missouri rivers.
