There has been no end of hard work on the part of the administra tion to maintain an appearance of in tense anxiety to put the country on a strong and confident basis. There is a difference of opinion as to whether the administration has been successful or not in that respect. Tt is certain that there has been no revolutionary improvement In business that can he described as such, and as a mathemati cal proposition a fresh start toward permanent advancement will have to he from a lower range than the high aver age of the year. Tariff Law as Factor The tariff law was the first depress ing factor, first in the agitation for the tariff revision, which was in reality the’most Important feature of the year's entire record. Complaint is now heard that the law as at present con stituted Is defective In many respects and will have to undergo considerable reconstruction before It is satisfactory or efficacious. The palapable results so far in America have been to reduce productioin in nearly every industrial field, to force a letting down* in prices and a curtailment in the number of working men hitherto employetfHn the manufacturing lines. Wages have been cut where the unions do not control, and elsewhere the issue of labor and wages has been settled by decreasing hours and apportioning the work ac cording to the old payrolls. The tax therefore falls on the entire working force instead of dividing It among a reduced number of employees. That arrangement seems to have been fairly satisfactory, but it isn’t as good as full time and full wages. Esti mates of all kinds have been made as to the extent of the loss so far in wages and in the value of manufac tured products. These estimates ap praise the shrinkage in business and labor nt $2,000,000 to $4,000,000 a day on the wage account—equal to $12. 000,000 to $20,000,000 loss every 24 hours. These are huge figures but the statisticians seem to be men of expe rience and ability. Tt will thus be j seen that the experiment of revision is not what was hoped for. The sug gestions that are now heard are for a revision of the new law in many par ticulars and such legislation as will place foreign and American competition on a more even plane from the home viewpoint. That means an extension of a period of political and manufac turing confusion in the United States which may extend through years. Let Clean Test Be Made There is fairness among all classes of people to give the administration the benefit of a clean, clear test of t lie experimental legislation put through Cotigress under the leadership of the President, who made himself personally as well as officially respon sible for the management. From a strictly business standpoint the expe riment thus far has not been what might be called a great success. That fact has brought about something of a change of front on the part of the President. It \s not an easy job for amateur workmen to make a perfect job the first time and that is the con dition of the country now. Personally Mr. Wilson has probably increased his popularity. As the self-appointed di rector of the greatest business insti tution in the world about which inti mate knowledge is a necessary factor, it would have been strange indeed if mistakes had not been made. A ma jority of the President s advisers have not enjoyed the variety of experience needed for the guaranteeing of the best results. The calibre of the cabinet and their advisers does not inspire un broken confidence in their ability to put out the highest class of work in specialties with which they might have lacked in detail qualification. But this is a situation which could not well have 1 been avoided. There was very little fully equipped talent available, for the lull discharge of duties of hundreds of experts instead of a baker’s dozen, gen tlemen in whom there was excuse for oversights and omissions.^ There re mains three years in which to complete perfect machinery. Although few will admit it. much of the nervousness is still here that orig inally tended to paralyze enterprise and inaugurate a condition of enforced idleness throughout the land. Wash ington and New York are still the centers for the concentration and dif fusion of fhe new forces which the au thors were convinced will effect an ideal revolution in the country. Few men are willing to concede that the public is disappointed in the presiden tial achievements thus far. They are willing to give him credit for having done his level best and would like to see him win out. Beyond the ques tion, however, mature men have their doubts. He has not as yet come up to expectations, although his entire hon esty of purpose is admitted. There is. also honest willingness and desire that he contribute ^lbstantially to the ad vancement of thp personal advantages of the 100,000,000 people within its borders. At the same time he is nat going to be spared criticism even fnWn his best friends if he falls radically short of expectations. Tt is undeniably true that while these experimental movements are in complete In many essential details the patience of the audience may give out after a fair test of endurance. Opin ion is freely expressed that the Pres ident will eventually confirm the judg ment of his friends when they put him forward as the greatest man in tlW republic. As the case now stands, however, a great many men of wealth and judgment are reiterating their de termination to proceed with their own affairs with unbroken caution. They would deivy any indictment that they were cowardly and destitute of true loyalty. They do not feel that the safety of the country demands that they take any more chances than they have to. Hence it is that business is slack and there Is a universal dispo sition on the part of men of affairs to delay the taking of risk£ Warm Elections This Fall The forthcoming congressional elec tion Is already beginning to engross at tention In the flnanolal district as well as throughout the country. The Issue will be of unmistakable Importance as a business and stoqk market factor.! The ruling opinion Is that the present control of House and Senate will be held but by perhaps a thin majority. Upon this Issue there will be endless discussion and speculators. Inventors and the general run of business men will be unsparing In criticism and ac tion. The veterans In this field prophesy that H*14 will witness ths hottest po litical fight there has been lit any year. Investment* and speculation will be in fluenced very greatly by what trans pires in Washington and the large fi nancial centers. The element that was chiefly instrumental In circulating the glad tiding that the President had de cided to give Congress and the country !a respite from ssnaatlonal agitation prior to the election next fall are not now finite sure that the original Infor mation came straight. If that was his determination awhile ago there 1b a possibility that he has changed his mind. There will probably be no en tire exemption from cause for a return of the "nervousness" which paralyze.' ■peculation and gave birth to semi cowardice on the part of the conserva tives. Mexican Situation Official and aeml-’Official announce ments as to frequent revisions of the Mexican attitude are having decided Influence In shaping speculative opin ion In the marketb. It Is by no means certain that the President will yield to demands for our Interference with Mex ico's s.ffelrs, although from present in dications there may be actual hostili ties before the mobs are suppressed In the ungoverned country south of the Rio Grande. He has held off longer than moat of hla friends would like to have seen, but the problem la an In \ xx When You Buy LYNCHBURG SHOES ' i s You Are Putting Your Money Right Back Into the South From Whence You Got It ( Keep Southern money in circulation in the South if you would bring that prosperity that we all want the South to enjoy, and enjoy ourselves. Buying LYNCHBURG shoes is one way to do this. * LYNCHBURG is “The South’s Shoe Center.” It is the fifth largest shoe market in the world. Giving the South better footwear for less money is the reason LYNCHBURG is the premier shoe city of the South. * When You Buy LYNCHEURG Shoes You Are Patronizing Southern Industry From Which Every Southerner Must Eventually Benefit iricate one, and there is abundant ex cuse for giving every phase of it most careful consideration. The President is gaining in that kind of self-confidence which comes from experience and a desire to do what is best for th© whole country instead of gratifying personal views or opinions. Pending adjustment of issues that are now before the people it is not probable the stock market will very radically change attitude. The deter mination to “wait” is quite as strong as it has been at any time since Mr. Wilson’s inauguration as President. The element of fear is not so strong as it has been at Intervals but has not been allayed, as many people would like to insist on being the case. A freight rate decision may come along any time after the end of the fiscal year, June. Until this long pend ing discussion comes to a head In the form of a decision for or against the railroads there can bo no peace in the flnincial world. As a market factor this rate proposition is very impor tant of itself. The effect will be much more far-reaching than as a market issue. HUGO BLACK MADE A GOOD JUDGE. HE HAS MADE GOOD AS A LAW YER. HE W'ILL MAKE YOU A GOOD SO LICITOR. . HH * * * II——i Off In Search of Gold In The South Sea Islands By M. D. REMINE Bristol, Tenn., March 7.—(Special.) With $60,000,000 In gold as the stake, J. Lynn Hobson, formerly of Bristol, but now residing In California, and Captain John Smith, an old-time sea man of Cedar drove, Me., will be oft for the South Sea Islands on March 15. They will sail on the vessel of a San Francisco salvage company, and will be accompanied by members of that com pany. It is one at romantic stories of buried gold, which has lain long on a distant Island of the sea, undisturbed and with nobody to claim it. Captain John Smith, the Maine seaman. Is said to be the only person now living who knows where the gold was hid. Learning this mych, Hobson con ferred with the salyvage company and received an offer to send a vessel on the voyagp, It being represented that the salvage company was under con tract to make a voyage In that direc tion, so that to reach the Island on which this large treasure of gold Is said to he buried, would be to steam but a few hundred mites beyond the limit of the voyage which had been planned. Hobson located and Inter ested‘Captain Smith, who parted with his family In Maine at Ills advanced age, joining Hobson here for the long journey. Because he was a new man in Cali fornia, Hobson, who is distantly re lated to Captain Richmond Pearson Hobson, hero of the Merrtmac, was unable to raise funds there for bis part of the expense of the voyage. He therefore came to his forintr home hers, raised the money and wired for Cap lain Smith to join ldni here, Which the cnptaln did. Those here interested In the scheme were very much Impressed with Cap tain Smith's story of the missing gold. He convinced them that he Is at least sincere In tile belief that tho gold will be found. This gold, Captain Smith explained, was obtained by pluder during tho Pe ruvian uprising about the middle of the past century. A Catholic cathedral, which had been ornamented with gold In luxuriant abundance, was stripped of Us gold, and this was added to a vast bulk of plunder. In order to avoid pirates who were then roavlng tho South sea, the vessel discharged Its cargo of gold on one of tho South Sea Islands, west of Honolulu. Here It was burled, after which tho ship sailed for an Australian port. Captain Smith explains that he Is the only member of the crew who got out of Australia alive, and he alone, thhere fore, knew whore the gold treasure was burled. He had told his story to many persons, but was never able to arrunge for an exped'tlon until Hobson took hold of the matter. The party, which Is to sail from San Franoisco March IB, expects to he away about tight months. It Is agreed If tho gold Is found that the salvage company Is to receive one half of It, while the remainder Is to be divided between Captain Smith and Hobson.
