Reparations Note And IJ. S. Demands
For Payment Asfeci. Exchange New York, March 30.?Germany's more serious financial and general economic position among the nations of the world found concrcte expression here yesterday when the mark fell to the new low record of 29%-lOOths of J 1 cent. The extent of this collapse, probably unprecedented in modern history, may be gauged from the fact that the normal or pre-war value of the mark hero was 238-10 cents. Selling of German exchange at this center has been unusually large re cently at steady reactions, but offer-' ings assumed most impressiv pro per'ions in the last few days. j The increased liquidation, appar ently accom.fpanied by speculative of ferings, was ascribed by informed in terests as directly traceable t'> the demand of the United Stales Govern ment for payment of the expenses of its army of occupation on the Rhine. For this a claim of $241,000,000 al ready has been presented to the Repa rations Commission. Yet another factor in the demorali-. zation is the severity of the terms im posed on the Berlin Government as a prerequisite to the granting of a par- 1 tial moratorium. These involve the flotation of a foreign loan or levy on home capital and a halt in all capital exports. Despite the panicky financial condi tions prevailing in Germany, some of ! the banks of that country seem to have j prospered amazingly. A cable from Berlin today gave a summary of the 1 Berliner fiandcls Gessellsbhaft, a leading institution, which reported net profits of 02.000.000 marks for 1021, i against 37,000,000 in 1920. Smugglers Hide Liquor in Ocean A thousand prohibition agents concentrated on the Florida coas' are confronted bv the same sit.ua-j tion that confronted the old English and Spanish governments trenera- i tions ago, when the free booters concentrated along the coasts of Scotland and South Snain and re fused to obev customs laws. The vast horde of smugglers now | engaged in slipping liouor from Cuba and the Bahamas into isolated inlets along the southern coast line i is made up largely of simple fisher men. according to the word of in - i vestigators which has been trans.- j witted to officials here. These fishermen look on the pro- J hibition law in the same manner in ; which the fisher folk of Valencia | and the Doirger Banks of Scotland : looked on the laws which orohibited j them from getting good tobacco and certain clothings They have or*; ganized a little industry bringing liquor fro mnearby foreign pos<- ?? sions. They refuse to see theii dust.ry as a violation of the law. These men know the Florii.a coast line as no revenue agent, j know it. They know everv nook and j crevice in the coastline. They go out i apparently to fish and when night falls, they make their way to the j linuor port. I Most of them go to Cuba. The i situation there makes smuggling a j pleasure?not a risk. Government officials there realize big revenue i from huge liquor exporlations. They: are not likely to curb the traffic. Then asrain, cabinet officers here can find no wav of appealing to' Cuban authorities on a common' ground to help stop the traffic. The! Cuban Government has no prohibi- , tion law and there is no reason why she should be asked bv the American ' State Department to enforce an i American law. The British Govern- j merit?ruling the Bahamas?is in a 1 similar position. Because of these conditions, the State Department I has refrained from asking coopera St, Louis Woman Relieved by Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg etable Compound St. Louie, Mo. ?"I was bothered with cramps and pains every month and had backache and had to go to bed as I could not work. My mother and my whole family always took Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound for such troubles and they induced me to try it and it has helped me very much. I don't have cramps any more, and 1 can do my housework all through the month. I recommend your Vegetable Compound tA my friends for female troubles."? Mrs. Dell,\ Scholz, 1412 Salisbury Street, St. Louis, Mo. J,ust think for a moment. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has been in use for nearly fifty years. It is prepared from medicinal plants, by tho utmost pharmaceutical skill, and supe rior methods. The ingredients thus combined in the Compound correct the conditions which cause such annoying symptoms as had been troubling Mrs. Scholz. The Vegetable Compound exer cises a restorative influence of the most desirable character, correcting the trou ble in a gentle but efficient manner. This is noted, by tho disappearance, one after another, of tho disagreeable symptoms.
