AMERICANS ABROAD
BOSTON. Nov. II.?At first "blush
hero seem:- to bo little or uc affinity
sxlstlng between th" American tourl.'t
ibroad and the balance-of trade?bo
tcts ou: to "do Europe" hua an ox- .
ensivi- and expensive?trip. He ;
caves a trai! of dollars behind hint?
>r rather pounds, marks ;vnd francs- -
vhich amount up to a tidy sum when
il credits and debits. Catering to him
? an important occupation in Europe,
[n this way he is responsible for one
>f the items which economists desig
nate as "invisible" in the balance of
trade.
A popular conception of that elusive
ind much misunderstood term Is that
it represents the dlffcrenco between
the values of exports, and Imports of
raw and manufactured products In
which wo trade with foreign countries,
[f that were so. wo should have long
since been turned from a debtor to a
creditor nation, and our vaults would
have bulged with gold from overseas.
Taking only the pa9t five years, .our
"visible" credit trade balance was
more than two and a quarter billion
dollars. Had that been all there was
to the equation, wo would have made
great strides in paying ofT our long
standing debt In Europe. But here'
was where the invisible factors were
working, and during this period we ac
tually shipped to Europo $75,000,000 in
gold over and above our gold Imports
?just to keep square.
The biggest invlsiblo item Is the
interest which we pay our foreign
creditors on the capital which they
have furnished to build our rallroado,
great industrial plants anil what not.
this amounting roughly to $250,000,000
per annum, according to Sir George
Paish. Tho same authority cstlmatos
that American tourists abroad each
year spend $170,000,000 In excess of
what foreigners spend here.
Altogether the invlsiblo ItomB In
tho balance of trado amount to $600,
000,000 per annum, distributed as fol
lows:
Interests on investments .. $250,000,000
Remittances to relatives .. 150,000.000
Freights?foreign carriers 25,000.000
American tourists 170,000,000
Total - $595,000,000
Thero are. of course, many other
items which could be Included, such
as the doblt or credit arising from pur
chase and sale of securities.
For reasons peculiar to themselves,
the above totals will be.&ffeptcd dif
ferently during the next few ..months,
as now conditions grow out of tho Eu
ropean. war; but tho $170,000,000 which
we have customarily spent on vaca
tion account seems destined to suffer
a big depreciation, if nideod It Is not
almost wholy wiped out
And $150,000,000 or more kept on
this side of the water during tho noxt
twelve raonthB would pot come amiss.

MARINERS, ETCETERA,
TO BE GOLD MINERS
SEATTLE, Nov. 17.?According to
The Times, the work of-washing out
the gold from the eighty tons of Nome
Beach: sand brought south as ballast
by the Pacific Coast Steamahip com
pany's Boring Sea liner Senator to be
undertaken by the Blain-Cann-O'Con
nor Co. which hopes to clean up nearly
$100 on the venture, besides providing
the members of the company with
much-needed exercise. The new com
pany was informally organized thiB
morniug by CapL John F. Blain, as
sistant manager of the company: Capt.
T. H. Cann, jr., master of the Senator,
and Frank J. O'Connor, the company's
Nome agent.
Captain Blain, who controls 51 per
cent, of the stock, will have a thinking
part. He will boss the Job. Captain
Cann will hold the hose furnishing the
water for the sluice-boxes to be built
In the Senator's hold, while O'Connor
will do the shoveling:. Blain figures
he will get a lot of exercise keeping
out of the way of the hose. O'Connor
wanted the job of holding the hose, but
was outvoted. Captain Cann wanted
the manager job, but met the same
fate.
Pannings indicate that the sand car
ries slightly more than $1 a ton. A
man with a patent device for extract
ing gold from sand bought two sacks
>r the ballast for 50 cents, the amount
iow in the company's treasury.
