Nathan Straus has presented his steam yacht tho Slslllna to the provisional executive committee for general Zionist affairs of the Fed eration of American Zionists, now In con ference here, to relieve the general dis tress prevailing as a result of tho war, particularly In the Holy Land. Ills gift, made In a letter to I.ouls D. Bramlcls, chairman of the committee, was presented to the conference to-day. Tho letter reads as follows: Dear Mr. Uraxpeis: In these dark days for all humanity, and for our brethren In particular, the importance of taking steps to relieve tho ganernl distress prevailing, especially in the Holy Land, has become a matter of paramount tmimrtance. It haa also become the pressing duty of every one to make sacrifices, or at least to dis pense with some luxuries. In order to furnish relief where It may be 'needed. Tho world Is my country, to do good Is my religion. I have, there fore, resolved to make a gift to tho provisional executive committee for general Zionist nffatrs of my steam yacht, the Slslllna. a description of which Is herewith enclosed. This jacht I have now placed In the hands of brokers to be sold at a sacrifice so that the cash may be realized as quickly as possible to relieve the needs that are pressing. The proceeds are to be expended under your personal direction In the way that you will Ilnd most effective.

He added that tho people are nulet and there Is no sign of panic. Apart from a considerable number of German officers eeen In the capital there nro no German troops excepting the crews of the Goeben and the Breslau. Reports In Constantinople regarding those war ships are most contradictory, an Is the case In London. The Breslau appears nt Gnl.tt.t now and ngnln and looks the same as usual to a layman.

The Daily Krpmt publishes this mornln nn article dealing with conditions In Constantinople. It says stories that tho city Is In n state of terror nnd f.tmll e are grosly misleading.

Foi Instance, chickens can be bought for from in to 20 cents apiece, egxs nio from t to 8 rents a dozen. For 2 rents a loaf of brttid can be bought as good us that In Kngland. "Turkey Is much better supplied with wheat than Germany nnd Austria. On the other hand, beef nnd butter havo almost doubled In price and potatoes have almost disappeared, although the loss Is not felt, -as potatoes are unpopular with the poorer citizens.

"The amusement houses are well tilled and a resort known as the Petit Champ i Is well patronized. "Patriotism does not Include the use of the French language, which Is mm. iniinly known to tho shopkeepers. The waiters, who nre German, have done their utmost to Introduce their lap. gu'ige. but have failed, Kven tho Get man olllcers are compelled to tall; French." The writer of the Etprcts article s.iys he encountered two of the crew nf the Knidui, who admitted the lens of nearly all of Germany's colonies, but they added ; "Germany Is going to make Tut key her newest and best colony."

Rtoanton, Pa., June 30 In the hope of unravelling the tnngled affairs of the International Correspondence Schools and hold the Institution as one of Scrin ton's leading Industries, the Scranton Industrial Development Company to-day subscribed J50.000 from Its 11,000,000 fund to help keep tho schools afloat. Scranton bankers have also pledged 1500,000 for the .schools, nnd to-day It was stilted that 1370,000 of the bankeis" pool had been actually subscribed. The- Industrial company has control of a tt.004,000 fund, raised by popular subscription, for nsslstlng local Indus tries In time of distress and also en courage outside Industries to locate here. The managers of the fund have declared their confidence that the schools ran be put back on a sound financial basis, and as n practical expression of their confidence, the $50,000 was subscribed without hesitation. The bankers, however, agreed to give aid to the f.tlteilng schools only on con dition tlmt T. .1, Foster, president, and his brother-in-law, V. L. Connell, would have no hand In directing the ue of the money. It was further made plain that their money was to be used only In nourishing the International Text Book Company, whlrh controls the Interna tional Correspondence Schools, nnd that no part of their 1600,000 should go to any of the other Foster-Conneli com panies, Wfst Virginia, Coal, Florida Land, Poultry Farms, fcj which havo been a drag on the text book company for years, The hankers also Insisted that Foster's salary be cut from 2n,u00 to 110,000 I a year nnd thnt C onnell tie ilroppid from the directorate.

June 30.- The !!srnl yenr 1015, which came to an end to-day. leaves the 1,'nlteil States Treasury with n deficit of nbout J90.000.000 on the year's business.

While the Treasury llgures arc such as tu suggest the possibility of a bond Issue or further reenue legislation, un less relief Is obtained In the coming year, reports from the Department of Commerce for the twelve tlscal montln Just ended present a more cheerful out look. A statement Issued by Secretary lied field to-day shows that the United States has made u gigantic new trade rerun! for Itself, the balance In favor of this country having exceeded 11.000, 0110,000, This surpasws by nearly MOO,. 000,0011 the previous high record by the United States.

It probably will bring the csh balance In the Treasury up to nbout $00,000,000 for the starting of the new year. This hnlnnce will carry the Govern ment along for some time, but many fear that unless th'-re Is a relief from war conditions some measures will have to tie adopted to meet the drain in the new tlscal year. The war revenue tax law expires on January 1 next nnd many believe that the President will be obliged to call Congress In extra session before December to teenact this meas ure If the war continue.
