SATURDAY EVENING REVIEW OF THE tflEEKS EVENTS HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE
Happenings That Throw Light on
, Present and Prospective Busi
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
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.

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

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

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
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,

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.

guilty of Violence, rejected tho scheme
for an Impartial grievance committee, and
claimed that they had never violated tho

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.
