American Traders Show Con
fidence in Stability in
The Belgian industrial revival is be
ing maintained in spite of the usual
slackening: of business due to annual
stocktaking: and a somewhat smaller
holiday trade than is usual at this
season, says the Department of Com
merce. in a survey of that country's
business conditions. Unemployment
shows a considerable decrease, par
ticularly in the metal industries. Sev
eral blast furnaces have been re
lighted. A favorable feature is the
fact that many mills are working: on
orders for the export trade. The sit
uation in the window glass industry
is even more favorable. Coal pro
duction for October registers an in
crease of 30,000 tons over the pre
vious month. The retail price in
?lex, which has been steadily advanc
ing since July, remains stationary.
This is probably due to the recent
appreciation in the Belgian franc.
American traders in Belgium have
indicated their belief in the stability
of Belgian industry by their increas
ing interest in trade promotion ac
(General Trend Favorable.
Aside from the usual slackening of
orders preceding annual stock-taking,
which is particularly felt by textiles,
the general business and industrial
trend for December maintained the
favorable showing of the previous
month. Renewed attempts of Ameri
can manufacturers to locate markets
through the mediums of projected
sales organizations and general ac
tivities. especially noticeable among
American motor and tijie producers,
are reflections of the industrial re
vival and confidence in the mainte
nance of increasing Belgian purchas
An encouraging decrease in unem
ployment has proceeded steadily since
October. Conditions in the "metal in
dustries are generally favorable, and
iron and steel production has shown a
considerable . increase as a result of
the relighting of a number of blast
furnaces and the resumption of ac
tivities at the Ougree-Marihaye plant,
which has been practically closed for
some time due to a strike among the
employes. On account of increased
rolling mill production, prices of
finished steel, which advanced during
November, are now stationary.
Optimism Is Noted.
Notwithstanding the seasonal slack
ening of orders, a distinct feeling of
optimism is noted generally In the
textile industries, and the greatest
drawback at the present time is the
uncertainty due to the ustable ex
change. The flax market is unusually
active, and a considerable export
business is being done, especially
with Great Britain.
The official retail price index (based
on 100 for April. 1914) which in
creased steadily from 379 on July lo
to 394 on November 15, has registered
no further increase and stood at 393
on December 15. Imported foodstuffs,
except coffee and American flour, all
declined in price during December in
harmony with the improved Belgian
exchange. The market for American
staple foodstuffs is satisfactory" and
competent observers state that an op
portunity exists for bringing about
an increased use of corn products, if
efficient demonstration and instruc
tion methods are employed. Hide
stocks further decreased during the
month to 162.300. and the market con
tinues active. Rubber stocks have
been decreased to 13,095 tons. A regu
lar increase is noted in the sales of
American machine tools, although
some dealers still hold stocks which
will require several months for liQUi
GERMAN TRADE EXHIBIT.
Adverse Balance Shows Decrease
for Exports and Imports.
According to a cable message to the
Department of Commerce from Com
mercial Attache C. E. Herring, dated
Berlin, December 30. a slight de
crease was reported in the volume of
O.erman exports for November as
compared with the previous month;
the decrease in imports was more
noticeable, with the result that No
vember shows a greatly diminished
trade balance by volume.
The total exports during November
amounted to 19,079,000 double cent
ners, valued at 11.912.000,000 paper
marks, whereas in October they
amounted to 19,700.000 double cent
ners. valued at 9.700,000,000 marks.
During November German imports
totaled 25,380,000 double centners,
with a value of 12,278.000,000 paper
marks, compared with an October im
port of 3^,00D,000 double centners,
valued at 13,900,000,000 marks.
The decrease in the adverse trade
balance by volume was due in part
to the abnormal imports of raw ma
terial during the former month,
caused by the anticipation of further
decline in the value of the mark, as
well as to the expected increase of
import duty. Higher export prices
are also an important factor in con
sidering the trade balance as the
value of practically all exports in
creased even where the volume de
clined. The total gold value of Ger
man exports for November was much
less than in October, it must be re
membered, on account of the fall in
FAILURES NEARLY DOUBLE
Conditions in Netherlands Are Re
ported Growing Worse.
The general economic and financial
situation in the Netherlands is re
ported as grownig worie, according to
a. cable from Trade Commissioner
Howard W. Adams, The Hague, to
? he Department of Commerce. Busi
ness failures during the past year are
nearly double the failures reported
during 1920. Unemployment as a re
sult of the industrial and financial de
pression continues to be a most
serious problem; 45,000 workers are
reported as being unemployed. A
strike in the metal industries, which
lias been going on for some time, has
not yet been settled.
Tax returns for the month of No
vember show a decline of over 2,500,
ono florins as compared with the same
month of last year, in spite of the
fact that the present taxation aver
age is reported as approximately 50
per cent on gross income.
November trade returns show an un
favorable trade balance of 69,000,000
florins. Total imports during the first
eleven months of the present year
are given as 2.000,000,000 florins, while
exports during the same period to
taled 1,300,000.000 florins.
The Dutch East Indies' loan of
$100,000,000 passed the Dutch senate

an influence in the immediate situa

The two-hour session on the stock

a balancing of traders' oontracts. Pro

market short early in the week were
inclined to cover, and this led to an
advance of a point or so early in the

and motor shares.
Later on, when the demand from

This Is Important to You
The NATIONAL MORTGAGE AND INVESTMENT CORPORA
TION, of which Mr. H. Rozier Dulany is president, has been in
successful operation for four months. It is meeting in a practical
way the building and housing needs of the District of Columbia,
and is making very attractive earnings on the money employed
in its operations.
Washington has heretofore been without an established discount
banking institution to standardize discounts and provide a ready
agency for dealing in real estate securities based upon second as
well as first trust mortgages.
The National Mortgage and Investment Corporation supplements
the splendid general banking facilities of Washington. Other
business as well as that of the builders is benefited by the Release of
money tied up and dormant in second trust notes. Institutions
doing a general banking business will be benefited by a stimulation
of business through building operations, which multiply and give
activity to bank accounts.
Investments in the National Mortgage and Investment Corpora
tion are safe and profitable. The character of the management
insures continued and growing success, with steady increase in
value of the investment, which accrues to the benefit of the stock
holders all alike.
A portion of the Stock of the National Mortgage and Investment
Corporation is being offered at the same price paid by the officers
and directors. Subscriptions are received by the Hughes Finance
Corporation, 1418 I Street Northwest Phones, Main 833 and 854.

THE protection of a strong box today does
not necessarily mean safety, and surely
offers no return. Real safety for your
