""Wtfi! SSyshWii EVENING IiEDGEB-Pm-I-DEPHIA SAT TODAY, SflPTEMBEIt 26, l9ia. 13 SATURDAY EVENING REVIEW OF THE tflEEKS EVENTS HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE IN COMMERCE AND FINANCE Happenings That Throw Light on , Present and Prospective Busi ness Conditions. Of paramount Importance In tlio com mercial and flnJtnclat news of the week are the preliminary steps toward a $100, 000,000 tfoldjpool for the relief of the foreign exchange situation, the success ful placing of tho $100,000,000 loan of tho city of Now York and tho decision of tho Intcrstato Commerco Commission to reopen tho l per cent, freight rato case. These favorablo omens In the business .world wero further augmented by tho lifting of tho ban on trading In New York. Boston, Baltimore and Philadel phia, providing that salesmen may bo sent out to solicit business for listed and unlisted stocks and bonds. Following tho sanction of the Federal Reserve Board of tho plan that the 1100,000,000 bo raised to place tho foreign exchange market on a Ann basis, banks throughout tho country came forward with the announcement that they stood ready to advance whatovcr amount It was considered they should. This amount, It Is bolloved, will only total ,nboUt $3,000,000. which will bo placed In 'the Bank of England's Ottawa branch. Tho $100,000,000 loan In New York and tho rapidity with which It was placed Is one of tho best Indications of a gradual return to normal conditions. Tho loan was moro than flvo times oversubscribed, and It Is understood that foreigners, par ticularly British Investors, put In bids for as large allotments as they could get. Referring to tho threat mado by Secre tary of the Treasury McAdoo that he .would publish tho names of banks hoard ing emergency currency and would with draw Government deposits from any banks found to bo doing so. tho now York World asserts: "Secretary McAdoo's warning to tho national banks against the extortionate tiso of emergency cur rency Is a warranted Interference by tho Government In their practice." On Monday Postmaster General Bur leson announced that ho had under con sideration a plan to mako tho 2-ceot rato for lottor postage oftectlvo through out the Western Hemisphere. This an nouncement Is hailed with satisfaction among business men, who arc now work Inc to build un a South American trade. Without a doubt tfils proposal should become operative. "The plan, of course, would result In smaller revenue for the Government, but It undoubtedly would lncreaso our trade wth the entire South America. The New York Times says on this ubject; "Postal treaties and conventions looking to the establishment qf nn ef ficient money order business with all Central and South American countries. Including tho British. Danish, French and Dutch West Indies, should follow tho measures already taken to extend banking facilities to merchants' of this country In South American cities." Further to Increase the trado of the United States with South America, steps are being taken In Chicago for the or ganization of a $5,000,000 banking and trading corporation. Trado experts dur ing the week took a trip on a special train of tho Lehigh Valley, telling the needs and' advantages of Latin America. Tho N'ew York Sun holds that Americans at the present time are not adapted to trade relations In South America as the Germans and the French nre, because of tho fact that the latter "become In lan guage, manners, etiquette, both social and commercial, often In law by naturali zation,' Brizllians or Peruvians. Longer credit Is another condition precedent to American trado In South America." It is estimated that tho total wheat production In the European war zone this year will be about 2.601,000,000 bushels, or FZ. per cent, of last years crop. Tills should be encouraging to the American grain man, considering that this country will have a largo surplus of wheat over her needs this year. The cotton situation assumed a brighter aspect this week. Five Cotton Exchanges In the South, at Dallas. Memphis, Mont gomery. Now Orleans and Savannah opened. This should lead to considerable buying of cotton throughout the country. New warehouses are now under construc tion to care for tho cotton bought, and thero Is every indication that there will bo ample room to store the cotton where It can be held until tho price advances and thero Is a demand for It. Tha South ern Cotton Association will meet In New Orleans nest Tuesday, and It will prob ably name a minimum price at which cotton can be sold. The prlco now being held to Is 10 cents a pound. - - k " nimHMiin Li1.n.i,im.inMnMiii'j"''H""iiUnin iiiuuuninnn'iiminui" y ' f :- 'EKKiHilfe slow ! St. Louis Post Dispatch "WHO, ME?" FOREIGN RELATIONS The steamship Robert Dollar sailed from Rio de Janeiro, Wednesday, flying tho British colors, Two weeks ago tho Robort Dollar made, application at Bio for a transfer of Canadian registry to American, undor tho registry law of August 18. Tho British Consul protested and tho transfer was refused. Tho inci dent dorives Its Importance from Its ex pression of tho British nttltude toward President Wilson's plan tor tho purchase of foreign steamers to be operated by a government-controlled corporation. Tho President, on Thursday, sold that tho ship purchase bill would not be taken from the Administration's legislative cal endar. It was announced In Washington that President Wilson had determined to toler ate no longer the offensive public com ments of foreign dlplomatla representa tives concerning matters of domestic con cern. This announcement relates particu larly to the alleged statements of Sir Lionel Cardcn, former British Minister to Mexico, criticising our Government's Mex lean policy; of Baron Wllhclm von Schocn, of the German diplomatic serv ice, who Is said to have declared that Japan wants war with this country: and of A. Rustom Bey, tho Turkish Ambas sador to the United States, whose refer ences to lynchlngs In the Southern States and "water cures" In the Philippines were not Kindly received at tho White House. It Is believed that the American Government has asked for Rustem Bey's recall, or will do so, and that It will tnko official action with reference to tho von S"hoen and Garden Interviews. Russia and Sweden this week Informed Washington of their Intention to sign pcaco commission treaties with tho United States. These treaties will be like those which have been negotiated with Great Britain, France, Spain, China and 22 other nations of the world, and which provide that nil disputes which cannot be set tled through the ordinary diplomatic channels shall be referred to a perma nent commission, nnd that hostilities shall not begin within a year after such refctence of tho questions nt Issue.

Besides, "thero arn millions of men out of work. In times of depression, who can be made self-supporting It they can find employment in theso public works." At the traveling convention of the Atlan tic Deeper Watonvays Association, tho rivers and harbors bill was discussed. Mayor Mitchell, of New York, as well as tho speakers who followed him, deplored the successful filibuster and declared that It would work against tho best interests of the country, especially at the time when tho United States was reaching out for her share of the world's trade. While favrlnu economy in municipal nnd na tional government, ho decried this move ment to kill now waterway projects, and termed it unwise economy. Continuous Inland waterway routes connecting Phila delphia, New York, Cape Cod Canal and Southern points by the means of a ship canal across the State of New Jersey were advocated. WATERWAYS AND PORK On Monday evening, after a week of continuous fighting, the allied filibustering forces In tho Senate overwhelmed the ad vocates of tho rivers nnd harbors bill and forced them to nn unconditional surrender. Tho motion of Senator Bankhead, of Ala bama, Democrat, to recommit tho bill to the Commerce Committee with Instructions to report a now bill carrying a total ap propriation not exceeding $20,000,000, was debated eight and a half hours. The motion prevailed by a voto of 27 to 22, exactly a quorum. Sixteen Democrats and eleven Republicans voted to recommit the bill Seventeen Democrats, four Re publicans and one Democrat registered themselves us In favor of It as It stood. The success of tho filibuster, which was led by flenatois Burton, of Ohio; Ken yon, of Iowa, nnd Norrls, of Nebraska, was warmly applauded by ndmlntstiutlon newspapers as well as by the press gen erally. The New York World and the Brooklyn Eagle, which have been con spicuous In support of the Wilson ad ministration, Joined with the New York Fun, the Buffalo Commercial nnd other papers in declaring that tho filibusters had done a real and lasting service to tho country. There seems to be what approaches unanimity of opinion on tho ethics of "poik bills." Tho now maxi mum of $20,000,000 was set by Piesldcnt Wilson, but, says tho World, "It Is great ly to be regretted that he did not take earlier a dellnlto stand on this out lagcous measure." Tho SprlnKfleld 1'nlon harks hack to tho Domocintlc national flatform in theso woids: "It must seem to all fair-minded critics that the record of the Senate Democrats is a flagrant abandonment of tho party's professed de votion to economy." The compromise plan for tho remaking of the bill calls for tha reduction of tho total appropriation from $5l,X,ooo after It had been cut from one original $91, dOO.CrtO, and authorizes expcndltuies only for projects that have already received the npproval of Congress. The Wash ington Times comment:,: "Tho heretofore authorized' clause makes It possible that pork heretofore apportioned may continue to be paid for from the new appropria tion. Nobody knows Just what projects nre needed and righteous. A step has been taken in tha richt iiii-a,.tiei but a longer one Is needed. There should be a general and sweeping overhauling of I the whole ystem" of appoitloulng money I "i purposes that come under tho head of rivers and harbors improvements. Tho reduced sum. by the terms of the com promise. Is to he spent "on existiiiK water way projects In the discretion of the Sec retary of War and the Board of Army knglneers. Rhors and harbors bills are not all of the character of the one now under dis cussion, we ate reminded by the Detroit tree Press. "Indeed, they havo Inaugu rated many of the most advantageous In ternal Improvements that we have today la tM United States." Seeing some good to.Jha.WUrth.q EreaPrwa. jewarka ;- -"3fci EMERGENCY TAXATION The war tnx revenue bill, agreed upon by the Democrats of the Ways and Means Committee and framed In accordance with the President's suggestion that "such Fourccs of revenue be chosen ns will be gin to yield nt onco and yield with a certain and constant flow," was Intro duced Into tho House of Roproseiitatlve.i Monday. On the following clay the com mittee presented Its report, baying that "the necessity for this legislation grows out of tho reduction of revenues derived from customs receipts, caused by the disturbed conditions icsulting from the war In Europe." It Is estimated that the new taxes will bring $105,000,000 Jnto the Treabiiry In a jear. In general, the measure follows the lines of the Internal rovenue laws of tho Civil and Spanish AVars, but while it impose many of tho old and some new stamp taxes, it omits altogether bank checks, some other kinds of commercial paper, alfo medicines and perfumes. In place of theso aro taxes upon gasoline, parlor car and sleeping car tickets nnd various kinds of wine. Beer pays less than heretofore, whisky Is Ignored nnd tobacco's burden Is not much changed. Banker, brokers and amusement pro prietors are levied upon, and Insurance policies nnd telegraph and telephone mes sages aro Included among sources of rev enue, Republican opposition to the bill has been manifest In Congress and in the press since It was first proposed. The lloston Herald calls attention to tho fa. t that Canada, which Ih a partici pant In tho European struggle, is Im posing a war tax no larger In proportion to our own. The Chicago Herald objects strenuously to the provision concerning insurance policies: "A tax on life and casualty insurancn policies is a tax on small savings. Why don't tho lawmakers put ii tax on savlngB bank deposits nnd brt done with it? They aro doing about the name thing." Limited praise for the bill is gien In tho New York World, In tho remark that It does not Incrcaso the exactions upon Incomes and omits wholly the mischievous Idea of talng domestic freight hills. Support anil opposition, both In Congress and out of It, Is divided on strictly partisan lines. The principal criticism of the war tax measure Is that it is wholly unneces rary. "The new tax Is not a war tax," says tho Brooklyn Citizen, "It Is a tribute to Democratic Incompetence and extrava gance." The Albany Journal calls it "a war tax in time of peace," and declares that Congress framed It In the hope of concealing the effects of "its free-trade-ward policy," Tho proposal for Uio es tablishment of a taxation commission, to whloh would be committed the entire subject of revenues by the Government, Is seconded by the Ohio State Journal ns the way out of such muddles ns that which now exists: "It will ba a forward step when Congress yields Its right to legislate for revenues, for then such luws will be based upon principle and not upon selfishness, which characterizes the field today." Yesterday the war tax bill came up under a rule limiting debate to seven hours. This rule, reported from com mittee on Thursday, was denounced by the opposition as a "gag" rule. Tho bill passed the House by a vote of 233 to 130. ro-employ nil striking miners not found guilty of Violence, rejected tho scheme for an Impartial grievance committee, and claimed that they had never violated tho "constitutional" mining laws of tho State. Tho Now York Evening Post, which, like practically nil oigans of oplnionhad uiged the acceptance of the truce, regret ted that the rejection "makes tho pros pect of a return to normal conditions less promising" and that tho companies should show a lack of a "hearty and sin cere desire to bring about a settlement." At the amc time It felt that ns the truce terms were only "tentatively" submitted, the Piesldcnt might he able to adjust them to the desires of the opnratois.
