Whan Japan found it imperative
that ah? place larsre orders In the
United States for various commodi

Russia, her representatives found
that American bank* were ready to
subscribe for a large issue of the
bonds of Japan. The money obtained
In this way did not go to Japan. It
remained in the United States. It
was drawn ajriinst so that payments
could be made for the commodities
Japan bought here. American banks
lent to Japan the money which Japan
expended In this country and held
tho bonds as security. The arrange

ties to the bargain.
This, however, is not the way In
"Which Belgium seeks aid in the res

Not the Belgian government, as was
the case with that of Japan, but in
dustrial leaders in Belgium have
united In association with banking
authorities there in attempting to per

of New York whereby JTAOOO.GOO can
be made available, the money to be
used chiefly, if not entirely, in restor

Fifty million dollars will not do
much more than to begin to repair the
damage?that, at leant, is the opinion
of the expert?, but it will aid in do
ing that and the expenditure of this
money will be in fact the first step
in the restoring of Belgium as a great
industrial community.
The arrangement has been perfected,
or is al>out to be perfected, and it Is
a significant one from several points
of view. The first comment which
the publication of this news occasioned
In the rinam-ial district was this: Much
has been said about greatly exag
gerated expectations on the part of
American industries as to the extent
of the commodities which our allies

States In order to restore normal in

of our allies will be in position so to
finance her own needs aw to make it
unnecessary tor her to buy to a great
extent commodities in the I'nitea
Fie ports have come from Kurope that
the devasted portions of Belgium and
Northern France ere in such ^pndition

There are intimations that industrial

Belief That U. S. Workers
Will Support Government
Steadies All Securities.
New York. Feb. 11.?The financial
world was still under the Influence
today of announcement that the gov
ernment intended to do a heavy ex
port business in Holshevlsts. The re
sult was higher prices for stocks. The
unwarranted assumption that labor
would resist a readjustment to normal
is disappearing and as it has been I
the principal reason for the stagna-!
Hon in business, a speeding up is now
expected. As stocks have been sell-1
ing far below their intrinsic value, a ;
recovery of stock prices l*> among the j
normal expectations of the immediate
I'nited States Steel was steady to-1
| day in the face of trade reports of
price cutting that would be necessary.
Tobacco stocks were firm again. Hide |
and Leather preferred established a
new high record for the movement.
The oil stocks had another uplift, aa
did the tire stocks, particularly Kelly
Springfield. United Fruit advanced
sharply on announcement of the di
vidend increase of 12 per cent. Sieel
Foundries and Car and Foundry were
strong. About the only weak depart
ment of the market was in liberty
bonds, which made a new low record,
being influenced by Secretary Glass
plans for the next issue.
Dividend* llulted.
American Can's report >vac a great
surprise and on its face makes divi
dends impossible at this time. The
amount written off for depreciation
was liberal, as uj-ual. Buying of the
stock was good and a short interest
was compelled to cover.
The nervousness that exists in tho
tobacco stock market was proved
again today when Reynolds B stock
had a 50 point advance to 4<"?0 while
snuff moved up Npoints. The d*>al
that is said to be going in British
American kept that stock firm, but
the real bullish factor behind the
I British-American is the enormous
business the company is doing in the
Mexican stocks were bought more
; confidently because of report that
k I British capital was planning to go
, into Mexico very extensively.
