Sir George Polsli, re viewing th lituiuol.il nml eotiLuerelwl situation in tho stuttst thi week, pi-edicts a long period of Uicop money tunfore seen happenings apart) which will be come mor.i abundant and cheaper its the ear advances. H. tecognl7c tliat tradu is railing, but says that tl.o decline Is less In Great Jlrltam than In Kutnpean countries, which a.v suffering from the lnfluei.ee of the Balkan war. Sir George thinks that there aio grounds for hoping that Hrltlsh manu facturers will be. well cmplojed for some lime to come. France, he says, will' benoflt from tho loans which she ts about to Issue nnd which uta Ukly to btlni; her numerous tieiv orders. As a lesult she v. Ill suffer less than other count! Us from declining trade. The same may be said to a certain extent of Germany "Iii the I'rlteil States," says Sit George, "wo expert a recoicty rather than a decline, ror the reduction of the taritr and the new banking and currency act are calculated to benefit trade. When the first difficulties of tbe riductlon of the tariff ar no American manu facturers will !,i .rnin to 'compete with foreigners much better ttutn formerly, while the new banking law ought to givo great stimulus to foreign trade lu every direction. We anticipate, therefore, com parative steadiness of trade In the United States, assuming that the crops will be good." Contingent on the absence of unforeseen and dlrturblng events, Sir George pie-dlct-s that a general and steady advance will he secured by stocks throughout the year. Hrltlsh securities will bo In higher favor than since the outbreak of the Boer war. Consols and other gltt edged securities will continue to advance. Amer ican securities will also bo more sought after. Sir George goes on to say: "There Is every reason to anticipate that there will be no antagonism between the great American railroads and the Ad ministration. President, Wilson has won the confidence of all Wastes, and no one doubts that oven If he makes mistakes he ts at all events a'.mlnj at what Is Just and fair and atiove all what will be. beneficial to the country. That being so, a bettor understanding is almoin cer tain to grow up between the Administra tion and the capitalist claes. If It does American securities will agnln come Into favor."
