C. audit from the time the raise took effect, or a pro rata discount pro-- portionate to the amount The Standard fell below 6000?. average daily paid. During that time, June 1, 1918, to April 1, 1919, which the A B. C. will soon audit. Tho Standard will be given credit for over 7000 paid circulation dally. The Exam-( iner confidentially sent word to all the Ogden mer chants that 6000 paid circulation average by A. B. C. audit was an Impossibility for an Ogden paper and in every way possible tried to knock The Standard's circulation and rates. But the merchants of Ogden had Tne Standard't; written guarantee 6000 paid or pro ratio discount, so they stood pat. Seeing The Standard was getting by. the Examiner raised Its rate making a bluff that they had more paid circulation than The Standard and giving a loud mouthed guarantee to that effect. Oh, Mr, Ogden Mer chant, wouldn't it be a grand and glorious feeling to have that Examiner guarantee down in black and white and get 50 per cent of your money back after the A.

Many of these were to the ef fect that the term? had raised tho hopes of loan workers and financial observers. Officials discussing terms of the vic tory loan today said one reason for this belief that the market price of bonds of past Issues would not be de pressed by the new securities, was that there still should exist a strong demand for the older issues by large fax payers, with certain arrangement of holdings Of past issues it is possib!e to hold $160,000,000 of bonds absolute ly tax free.
