HEAD OF POLAND
MAY6EMUSICIAN
Ignace Jan Paderewski
Likely to Be President,
Says Holland. ?
Should a republic be proclaimed in
Poland and Ignace Jan Paderewski be
chosen as President, for dispatches
from London report that this is prob
able. then a man who is almost an
American may become President of
the new republic in Poland. Pade
rewski has sojourned for so long a
time in the United States and has.so
many times crossed the continent and
been in touch with American senti
ment and American political and busi
ness life, and has so thoroughly ab
sorbed all that he has seen and
learned in the United States, as to
justify speaking of him as almost an
American. Here he gained his sub
stantial fortune; here he parted with
a considerable portion of his earnings
in order to carry on war activities in
support of the a 11 lee. and here he be
came the central figure in all the
organisations in the United States
which represented the honorable am
bitions of Poland.
Seldom did Paderewski play profes
sionally in the United States after th?
war began. He seemed to have begun
a new career and to have revealed at
the beginning of it unusual capacity
for the higher kind of political lead
ership and all his work in this coun
try seemed to be Inspired or illuminat
ed by his admiration for American in
stitutions. The discovery was made
that Paderewski possessed unusual
executive and administrative capaci
ties. He understands Poland as well
a? he does the United States and as
he is courageously conservative and
has not in the past been Identified
with any political or class Interest in
Poland or in Europe, he will be able
to accept the presidency, if it be of
fered to him. with a clear conscience
and a free hand.
There is, however, another revela
tion which has been made by him in
the past four years. It is associated
with his higher triumphs as a player
of the piano. Men who are competent
to judge and explain, and many others
who could not explain, but neverthe
less were impressed, recognized a pe
culiar quality in Paderewski's playing
not possessed by any other even of
the greatest masters of the instru
ment in Paderewski's generation. He
would begin by playing with exquisite
delicacy, with wonderful mastery of
the piano, drawing forth from it beau
tiful tones and compelling the instru
ment to yield to any demand which he
made upon It. These characteristics
however, were not exclusively Pader
ewski's. A few other masters of the
piano possess them. But of a sudden
there came in his playing what is
sometimes characterized as a mar
velous burst of eloquence such as had
never before been revealed by any
other of the masters of the instru
ment. Paderewski's unique capacitv
for bringing something like rrue elo
quence out of the instrument, identi
fied his personality, for this It was
which enabled him to produce this
astonishing effect.
Paderewnkl's Ela*a*a**.
After the war began and Paderew
ski began to speak in public, in- 1
fusing his personality into his ut
terances. the observation was fre
quently made that he at times be-!
raine truly eloquent, speaking with
? great hurst of eloquence similar;
? n some of its aspects to The like!
quality which was observed in his!
pUying. So it was presumed that
aderewski possess* d all the <|iiali- ;
ties which make a truly ^rent
iTJtor. For he spoke uith sinceritv :
with tine command <,f hi* voice':
Maying equally well upon the em,j-'I
ti"l* and the reisnmnc of his hear
ers. and frequently, of a sudden I
break in e out into burst* of real
eloquence. ?
Therefore the wonder i.. am..ns
laderewskis many friends and!
so.ne 01 those who do not know him
personally, whether now. at the a. ?
of he has not made it manifest !
L'n' >. '* with qualities'
mich are not ..nly ceitain t.. an-I
peal to (treat masses of the p.disn 1
people, for th, spoken word >s
ureatly admired in Poland, but also I
skillfully and wisely to lead in gov
ernmental and public affairs
In any event Paderewski would n
s short time retire from his voca
tion as a player of the p.ano but
for public life he I. thought to be I
" voun* ">an. young in mental
energy. in enthusiasm and in capa.
"V lor dealing w,th gr.at political)
Hfr.-urs. Others have advanced front |
humbl. service ,.f various kinds to
pre. minent positions in the nation
of uhtch they are citizens. This
lias been noticeably the case in the
I i"ted States. But it is not known
Ihat any one who maintained a Ion-:
and highly successful car~>r as a
professional musician, standing pre
eminent in that vocation, should of
a sudden give up that career so that
be might undertake the highest
duties committed to any citizen.
Xot a word of criticism has been
h?a.rd for the action of the Federal
lieserve Uank of New Tork in per
fecting an agreement with Peru,
whereby a credit balance of $15,000.
ooo is provided by Peru, for the sak
of facilitating the movement of
commerce between 1'eru and the
United State*. Instead of criticism
general approval has been ex
pressed. This la based upon several
grounds. It demonstrates that Peru
la seeking to establish a greater
trade with the United States, while
our own citizens who are manufac
turers or importers are willing to
take advantage of any favorable
conditions which will enable them to
buy raw material such as Peru can
furnish.
Our importers by reason of this
arrangement are able to buy Peru
vian commodities and to pay tor
them by drafts drawn against the
credit balance. This inevitably
means dollar exchange. It was in
Chill that I.eopold Frederick was
able to establish the first dollar ex
change market in the world. The
example then set has now been fol
lowed by Peru and undoubtedly will
be hereofter Imitated by other South
American nations. Another reason
for congratulation is the evidence
that with the establishment of fav
orable financial conditions it will be
possible very greatly to increase our
South American trade. Furthermore
this action is spoken of as one of
the triumphs of the Federal reserve
system. For had the old national
hanking law been now In existence
It would have been impossible to
secure such favorable banking fa
cilities as Chill and Peru have now
furnished and as other South Ameri
can nations are likely speedily to
adopt. If our importers buy heavily
of raw material and other commodi
tios of South America so also Amer- |
lean manufacturing and other In
dustries will on the other hand be
likely to match these purchases in
8outh American countries by sell
log home-made commodities in these '
FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS It doesn't happen often! By BLOSSER
countries where heretofore the mar
i keta of that kind have been almost
exclusively controlled by Great
jBritain and German. HOLLAND.

CHICAGO GRAIN.
By JOSEPH F. I'ltlTf'H A n II.
j Chicago. Jan. 7.?Corn advanced sensationally
j again earlly today, reaching new high levels on
the crop for all deliveries, and the trade "as
i a big one.
I The unconfirmed announcement that the War
| Trade Iloanl would is?i? licenses for importa
tion of Argentine com drove many of the
! early buyers out of their position, but later
j the trade came to the conclusion that it would
neccasitate th? apwotal of the Food Admiiuv
I tration.

January was up lT?c; July, ISalV- higher;

STRONG MARKET
FEATURES DAY:
Tractions and Tobaccos
Lead; Barrett Stock Rises (
More Than 4 Points.
H> IIBOADAN WALL
New York, Jan. 7.?Traction, to- j
baccos and a few specialties were
strong in today's stock jrarket while
the general list was either heavy |
or inactive. In the afternoon petro- '
lepm stocks wore sold freely for I
no other reasons than that the long
account in them was becoming un
well d y. In the bond market trac
tion issues were favorites and on
the curb the oils advanced.
The stock exchange will be closed
at 12 o'clock tomorrow out of re
spect to Tkeodore Roosevelt's mem
ory. Wall Street is sincerely mourn
ing for tbe man whose health when
he was President bankers refused .o
drink except in resentful silence
and as a matter of form. His pro
gressive ideas of those days are the
conservative ones of today. Wall
Street's mourning is mingled with
regret at memory of the abuse
heaped upon Roosevelt wh'-n he was
President.
Brooklyn Rapid Transit had an
extreme advance of 2 1-2 points and
Interborough Consolidated moved up
i. Interborough Metropolitan 4 1-2
per cent. Bonds advanced 3 points.
Texas and Pacific lawyers have
Anally decided that that company
has the right to drill on that part
of that right-of-way which is owned
In fee simple. Decision has not been
reached as to the light to drill on
that part granted by the govern
ment. Three wells are to be put
down at onca on land outside the
right of way owned in fee simple
and on the results obtained there
will depend what is to be done on
the right-of-way.
Barrett stock to which attention
was called in this column yesterday
was at one time up 4S points and
the preferred closed the day &
higher. In addition to the general
fact the United States will demand
good roads there was the specific
fact today that the States of Ohio
and Pennsylvania have already vot
ed $80,000,000 for road-building
If there are to be good roads built
that will mean more automobiles
and more tires to be used and there
fore U. S. Rubber was strong today
and the automobile stocks were
well-purchased.

IT PAYS TO READ
ADVERTISEMENTS
You've often heard the saying, "It pays to advertise." That is
true. And it also pays to read advertisements ? pays you. If
you read advertisements consistently for any length of time you
will agree that this statement is also true.
It pays you in money saved. There are many real
bargains offered from time to time in the adver
tisements appearing in this paper. Watch for
them.
It pays you in satisfaction. \\ hen a merchant asks
you to come to his store he obligates himself to
sell you quality goods "as advertised." You
have a right to expect satisfaction from what
you buy and you get it.
It .pays you in time saved. When you know ex
actly what you want to buy and where you
want to buy it. you don't have to "look around"
and waste time finding it.
?
Don't you want to save money and time? Wouldn't you like to
be sure of getting satisfactory service and quality goods every
time you go to a store? Then read the advertisements in The
Herald and patronize the stores which can serve you best.
