UNCLE SAM AGAIN
ON TRUSTS" TRAIL
Supreme Court Todvj Take
Up Tak of Uikmg Bif
CJorportiioiLs Behave.
With the reconvening of the Su
preme Court today the tjovornmsnt's
big trust-busting oompaign, post
poned on account of the war, was en
in full swing In its final stages.
Seven cases of anti-trust prosecu
tion are before the court for final de
cision, and the result of the suits un
doubtedly will have a far-reaching ef
fect on American business. Much de
pends on the construction the Supreme
Court puts on" the Sherman and Clay
ton anti-trust Jaws, under which the
suits were brought, j
All of the cases are near the top of
the docket and will be argued as soon
as a lew special cases are disposed
of. Decisions are expected earl yki
1030.
Some of the cases represent nearly
nine years of legal battles between
the Government and the corporations.
The first case on the new court docket
is the United States vs. the Lehigh
Valley railroad, while No. 3 J the
Government against the Reading rail
road. Thes are the celebrated an
thracite coal cases, the railroad linos
being charged with having a monop
oly of the anthracite coals production
and shipments. The Government loot
both of these cases in lower courts.
The noted struggle of the Govern
ment against the United States Steel
Corporation, known as the "Steel
Trust," is No. 6 on the dooftTet. -Here
again the Government is on the de
fense, having lost in the lower courts.
GIFTS TO HARVARD
CUT INCOME TAXES
"Give to Harvard University and
cut down your inedme tax." This is
the slogan adopted today by can
vassers In the local campaign to aid
in raising a H5,0OO,OO0 tdowmeet
fund for Harvard.
Under the Hottte amendment to
the Federal revenue as coatrfbu
t on to the endowment land are de
ductable up to IS per cent of an ln
divUuar net income. For iut.irrr,
a man with a taxable insane of SK,-
000 a year may contribute $1,000 to
the Harvard fund with the privilege
of deducting the amoeou from hs
taxable net Income in figuring ihe
income subject to taxation. This
ccntJbution would therefore reduce
a taxable income of $10,000, alien
ing for a $2,000 exemption for a mar
ried man, to $0,800, and the tax would
be reduced from $900 to 428, a saving
of $100. In other words, of the
SJUOOO contributed, the doner would
be giving $1,3$$, and the remainder'
of the gift would be made up of the
tax reeuctlaa of. $100.
Mot Saving'
With larger incomes the reduction
fct taxes Is much greater, due to the
fact that th raiijMi tk .Mku
JT the payment of the 1 perf
ew girt to harvard saves the tax
sen a higher rate of supertax.
Tables showing exactly how muck
each oontributor's income; tax will
be reduced by hi subscripUen to
Harvard have been prepared by the
local committee in charge ' of the
campaign and nave been distributed
among the canvassers.
An effective appear now being
made to Harvard men by the can
vassers is tnat each Harvard
owes his alma mater money, rerard-
Icss of whether he said all .of hi
college MUs. The annual tuition fee
paid by a Harvard student covers
only a portion of the expense of edu
cating that student for a year. The
difference between the figure ha
heen paid willingly by the univers
ity; but now that the university is
In need of financial aid, Harvard men
are being urged to pay back what
the Institution advanced for their
education.
Tables showing exactly what mem
bers -ot the various classes owe their
alma mater have been prepared and
are obtainable s.t the headquarters
of the local campaign, room 715
Union Trust building. The figures
show that a student of 1870 owes the
university $1,372 for the year; a stu
dent of 1800 owes $004; a student of
1000 owes $76; a student of 1000
owes $441; a student of 1910 -owes
$367, and a student of 1913 owes
$400.
- "Harvard did not hoard her as
sets, but gave the education." today
declared Walter R. Tuckermaa, chair
man of the local executive commit
tee. "These figures are not supposed
to measure the value of the educa
tion rceived; nor the amount any
alumnus should give. They do, how
ever, emphasiae the fact that every
Harvard man still is Indebted to the
university financially for the educa
tion he received."

This probably will be disposed of In a

nu MaMMkMetti Democrats.
"Republican leaders have no hope ef
obtaining enough vetes to aaept
either amendment
The prospects for adopting the
Johnson amendment to equalize the
voting power of the United States and
Great Britain In all questions coming
before the league assembly upon
which the two nations participate,
were thought by the Republican lead
ers today to be enhanced by the at
titude taken by the Massachusetts
Democratic convention at Boston Sat
urday, when. In Its resolution urging
ratification of the treaty, it advo
cated an amendment along the line of
that offered by i the California Senator.
The action of the Massachusetts
Democrats, it was said, would give
Senator Walsh of ' that State ample
reason for voting for the amendment,
which, he hap stated privately, he
favors. With Mr. Walsh's vote in
support of the amendment. Its advo
cates count upon four Democratic
votes. Senators Reed and Gore have
already announced their intention of
voting for it, and there Is one mere
Democrat, whose name has not been
divulged by Republican leaders, who
1s said to have assured them tha,t
he will-support It
Thomas or Shields.
This recruit from the Democratic
ranks is said to be either Senator
Thomas of Colorado? or Senator
Shields of Tennessee. The latter has
net announced his position en the
Johnson amendment '
The Republicans are unable to tell
just what support they will get from
the "mild reservationlsts" on the
Johnson amendment, admitting that
three or four of thera Anay vote
against it With the votes of Senator
Walsh and the unnamed Democrat
the Republicans figure that they can
carry the amendment by one vote.
This sronhesy is challenged by the
rDemocratlc loaders, who say that the
vote .will go their way.
The Johnson amendment, according
to the program now under way, will
be reached next week, and after that
will come the fight on reservations.
Stands Against Cemmlrtee.
Mr. iHtchcock declared that the
Administration leaders' were. not con
sidering any compromise on the res
ervations advocated by the majority
of the Foreign Relations Committee.
The only program they would con
sider -at this wh. he said, would be'
Interpretative reservations, such as
the President has indicated he would
not oppose. "
Administration leader interpreted
the failure of the Massachusetts Re
publicans to approve the amendment
program of the Republican leaders,
headed by Mr. Lodge, as a rebuke to
the latter.

The passage of a bill carrying a

MINISTER RESIGNS.
NETHERLANDS POST
J. W. Garrett Quits Diplo-
matic OorpfoiRet After f
19 Yean Serrioe.
t BALTIMORE, Oct f. After nearly
nineteen years in the diplomatic serv
ice, the last five of which have been
devoted to almost ceaseless work In
connection with the delicate problems
growing out of the great war, John
Works Garrett has forwarded his res
ignation as minister to the Nether
lands to President Wilson, with the
request fonts early acceptance. Mr.
Garretk' present stay in this country
is his first vacation, in five years, and
his resignation is due to his desire to
take a rest at hi home here. He
arrived in New York the latter part of
July, and has been spending the sum
mer at Rockport and York Harbor.
Mr. Garrett is, in point of service,
one of the oldest members of the
American diplomatic corps, and lsre
garded as one of the ablest During
his career he has been selected to
participate in some of the most deli
cate negotiation which the State De
partment has found it necessary to
undertake from time to time.
He was nominated by President Wil
son a envoy extraordinary and min
ister plenipotentiary to The Hague in
August, 1917, to succeed Dr. Henry
Van Dyke, who retired from the dip
lomatic service about six months pre
viously. v
Because of the proximity of Holland
to Germany and the multitude of in
tricate questions arising out of the
export embargo, the President east
about for the most skilled diplomat
he could find for this post Mr. Gar
rett after a canvass of the field,
seemed to fill all the State Depart
ment's requirements.
Boersianer's
Comment
on Business
Mr aWaatSlAMBiU
A recurrent abnormal call money
rat'e 12 per cent has been a technical
Incentive to bearish speculation.
Business, deepKe the steel and minor
strikes, eontlnees at concert pitch
in lines not directly affected by
labor trouble. In all such indus
tries (including dry goods) OaMlI
ments find It difficult to keep pace
with demands; thus money is heav
ily employed everywhere.
But money was never plethoric, as
at present Its abundance mere than
meet commercial and financial re
quirements. Investment-wise it
seems to be inexhaustible. Waiving
sterling bond offerings, 7 per cent
preferred stock issues recommended
by responsible firms are quickly ab
sorbed. It follows that the abnormal call
rater do not conform to real mone
tary condition. Artificial" contriv
ance is an ever-ready explanation,
but at present its conventionality is
rendered less uninteresting by the.
pernape significant campaign ot the
American acceptance council. '
The business of this eounell Is to
broaden the market for acceptances.
To that purpose everything is grist
that comes to the council's mill. Cur
rently, the flourishing propagandists
are making a nation-wide distribu
tion of a pamphlet by a vice presi
dent of a Boston bank who advocates
a serai-monthly settlement plan as a
substitute for "the unsatisfactory
and unscientific stock exchange call
loan," who declares a "so-called 'call
loan is only callable in fair weather,
and is, in fact the most unliquld
asset outside ef a mortgage a bank
can hold. It seems remarkable that
this form of investment has con
tinued for so many years to be re
garded as a satisfactory second re
serve, and that this impression still
persists in spite of the many superior
qualities of the bankers' acceptance
aa a readily marketable liquid as
set." The advisability or feasibility of a
semi-monthly settlement plan is a
matter of opinion, though it was tried
with disastrous results by the Chi
cago Stock Exchange in the eighteen
nineties. It has succeeded in London
in a form which was not completely
adaptable to the American markets In
any event Plainly, it would make
and, indeed, make for a type of
speculation which is increasingly dis
countenanced by American fiscal
ethics.
But the assertion that "a call loan
is callable only in fair weather and
in fact Is the most unliquld a5sct"
etc.. etc-flies in the teeth of a daily
experience which began wlt,h the for
mation of the domestic stock ex
changes.
A call loan is what its name im
plies. It is callable and is called at
the pleasure of the tender, or the
borrower. A failure on the nart of
the borrower to comply with its ex
action was a confession of insol
vency. Por a bank to refuse the
check of the borrower in compliance
with cancellation or transference
were an impossible absurdity. In
periods ef commercial languor and
money plethora, even some Western
banks have from 29 to 35 per cent of
their deposits out on call in Chicago
and New York, irrespective of the
higher percentage of the New York
banks. The safety of the loan is its
immediately marketable collateral; its
desirableness' is its very callableness.
As a temporary placement for banks
nothing in the world of business Is
comparable to the call loan. The
American Acceptance Council deserves
to be highly complimented for their
energy and Ingenuity In furthering
the market for acceptances, but they
might choose an advocate whose as
sertions are less obviously fallacious
than those of the Bostonlan.

MONEMUAIN
BECOMING EASIER
Material improvement in the finan
cial condition of the Treasury during
the past month carries additional
confirmation of the opinion previ
ously expreeeed by the Secretary ef
the Treasury that the borrowing op
erations incident to the financing' of
the war will be carried to completion
without another great funding loan.
So far as long-terra Government war
financing Is concerned, it may be said
to have come to a eloee with the Vic
tory loan, according to the October
review of the Federal Reserve Board.
There is aa air of optimism re
garding an improvement in the loan
and investment accounts of banks.
The volume of unabsorbed war se
curities Is still large, and liquidation
of these war finance Investments and
loans ,i clearly a necessary prelimi
nary to any large and genuine im
provement in the banking and credit
situation. The recent improvement
in the Government bond market, fore
shadowing, as it probably does, a pro
gressive improvement because of in
creased realisation that Government
long-term financing Is over, lq, there
fore, of goad augury for the general
banking situation. '
That the problem of reducing the
cost of living is mainly one ot re
storing the purchasing power of the
dollar Is the contention of the Fed
eral Reserve Board. To bring the
country to a normal condition once
again requires a reversal of the proc
ess that brought about the present
.condition. Increased production will
tend to lower prices by throwing on
the market a larger volume of 'goods,
while increased saving will tend tp
reduce the volume of circulating me
dia. Clearing house receipts in Wash
