THE CLAFLIN FAILURE.
THE failure of the H. a Clafltn
company does not indicate that
the country' i? going to smash
In fact, it has little significance in
itself beyond the fact that this mer
cantile company was one to strike the
rocks during a period of world-wide
busiuess depression. While the assets
and liabilities involved in this failure
are greater than those of any recent
similar catastrophe, it is not an un
common thing for big mercantile
houses to fail here or elsewhere, and
there is no occasion for alarm on ac
count of it. The circumstance that
a depression permeates the business
and industry of the whole world has
been discounted, and the troubles of
this house are not the result of pan
icky conditions, and it is not such a
failure as will create such conditions.
The proc esses of liquidation have been
dragging their weary way through
the commercial fabric of the Nation
since the clearing house certificate
days of 1907. Beginning at that time
and continuing down to the collapse
of this New York drygoods establish
ment there have been failures among
railroads, industries and commercial
concerns as they reached points where
they could not stand the strain long
er. Some of them?as the Westing
house company, for instance?were re
organized and continued in business,
while others were forced into liquida
tion. However, on account of the ac
tion of the banks in standing together
and refusing to pay their obligations
in cash until the sharp edge of the
1907 panic had worn off. and the gen
erally close and conservative banking
methods that have been adopted since
that time, but few of the big American
bank* have been compelled to suc
cumb. Special causes, as in the case
of of the First-Second N'atlonnl Bank,
of Pittsburgh, aud the Lorimer banks
of Chicago, have brought about a few
failures. This conservatism of the
banks has at times made it difficult for
commercial or Industrial or transpor-.
tatton concerns to secure credit when
needed, and some of them have been
forced to the wall, among them the
Foreign countries have fared worse
than the United States has during this
depression, because they have had
failures among their financial houses
whose ramifications permeate all
strata of activity. The suspension of
the London banking house of Chaplin.
Milne, Greufell and company earlier
this month, with liabilities of $15.
000.000. taken In connection with the
fact that the more conservative of the
London stock exchange firms have as
sessed themselves to the extent of
J50.000.000 In order to prevent failures
among other exchange houses, is far
more pretentious than the circum
stance that New York banks could not
see their way to carry Claflin's longer.
The London failure was preceded by
finacial disasters at Rio de Janeiro and
the failures of Paris, Berlin and St.
If the present administration fur
nishes more fun for the international
world than the Roosevelt admin
istration. with its mock tinsel court
and is bluff and bragadocio provided,
it is going some.
Tomorrow will be Sundaly again,
and it is not too late yet to begin that
"Go to Church" movement.
