The Federal Government has no au thority In law to interfere with th. loan negotiations, it Is pointed out. It has not been approached by the bank ers, and It does not expect to be ap proached. The Administration would not formally approve of the loan, but nolther will it seek to prevent It. Moreover, ofncials are hopeful that th. G.rman 'iovernment will not lodge a protest against the loan. It has been asserted by one In position to speik with some authority regarding German policy rat the German Government reeognlx. . the fact that the pending transaction Is subsequent lo the floating of a comparatively small G.rman loan In ths 1'nlted States. Furthermore. It has been asserted by this person that at the moment the German people are not agitated over the American trade in war munitions to the extent thc.it Wi.y were some months ago. Intimations have come from Herlin recently that tne German Government Itself was positively discouraging tl rsdes against the United States on thla spbj. t as being out of harmonv with t efforts of the Foreign Office to adjust timicably the pending serious dlfnculty with the United States grow ing out of the submarine Issue. It Is recognised, however, that If (ier many chooses to be disagreeable In this matter, as she has In regard to some other Issue In the past, It will have no difficulty in doing so. A protest against the loan would meet with a re sponse from Washington as llrm and vigorous as the poles t,, Heilm and Vi enna defending the legitimacy ,, the AjBorican irude In wsr munitions. vouid ioid rrletloa. im penning man irmnggoUpn is regard. ed here as largely an outgrowth of the munitions trade, being chl.fty s. plan for paying the bills contracted or about to b. contracted by l-Jngland and France in thl. trade. Jt is felt hare, therefore, that having birn completely answeied on the uuestlon of munitions trado. neither tier mauiy nor Aut-ina Is exactly in g position to protest against the loan unless it is indifferent to the maintenance of friendly relations with the 1'nlled States. Th. Administration Is now satisfied that whatever the attitude of Berlin may bays been In the past, it Is not now aazloua to have any further cause for friction with Washington. Nevertheless ottlclsls here are hoping that the agitation reported from Various tUrtre with regard to the pending transaction will soon die down. It Is appreciated here that it containa til. possibility of stirring up more trouble. Nevertheless the Administration Is pre pared to stand firm for what It considers His right, of American business as well us for th. rights of Americans on Brit ish ships traversing the high seas.

Austin, statis tician of the foreign trade department of the National Oty Bank, enow that the Increase In tnanufai-tures exported Is rapidly overtaking the h-.ereaee In the cxportattoiia of foodstuffs.
