incurred, or about to be incurred, In

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

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

and out of town financiers, the members
of tha Anglo-French mtaalon met s

Because of threatening letter re

the meeting was conducted with the

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. The figures
bear out the assertions of the Anglo
Ifrench mission to Amsrkan financiers,
that the allied nations at war will con
tinue to pay gold for munitions of war,
but they will trsde for foodstuffs with
the nations that give them credit.
