"- LABOR MEETING TOWER HILL., LONDON ENGLAND'S SERIOUS LABOR PROBLEM IN A TAIR WAY TO .SOLUTION. By Francis H. Sissox Vice President. Guaranty Trust Co. of New York. (Mr. Sisson has fust returned front Europe, where he studied existing con ditions at first hand.) Great Britain, emerging from the first period of chaos and uncertainty follow ing the close of hostilities, finds her self in a condition much more stable and hopeful of a prosperous future than even the most optimistic had expected. True, the war, directly and indi rectly, had cost her greater expenditures than 'those of any of her Allies. V But analysis of the facts shows that the situation is far less critical than it appears to the casual glance. While her gross debt on March 31, 1919, the end of the last fircal year, was $36,746,650, 056, of this sum only $6,569,100,000 repre sented external obligations and only this smaller sum represents wealth which must leave the coumry in payment of debt. Furthermore this indebtedness is more than off set by $8,580,000,000 in ad vances to Allies anci Dominions. To carry the nation's debt calls for a flebt service in the budget for the com ing fiscal year of $1,751,760,000, or 30 per cent, of the revenue receipts. ( The fact that the taxing machinery has been organized for raising such enormous sums will be very advantageous in plan ning the after-war administration of government finances. Further offsets of this debt will be the indemnities eventually collected from the Central Powers. These, with the debts to be collected from the Domin ions and the Allies, will gradually re duce the burdens of English tax payers. Prominent among the counter balanc ing items also are returns from invest ments abroad and the receipts of British-owned ocean carriers. It is esti mated that , British foreign investments before the war amounted to $19,464, 000,000 and that they now approximate $14,500,000,000.

The prosperity of the nation, how ever, will be measured largely -by its ability to produce marketable commodi ties for sale abroad. It is estimated that the nation's power of production has been increased by about fifty per cent by the speeding up process induced by war needs The number of men kil 1 and those who died of disease in the armed forces of the United. Kingdom in the war was approximately 900,000. The population of Great Britain numbered 45,516,259 in 1911. At the end of 1918 the es timated population, deducting the loss of 900.C00, was 46,673,380. We have then an actual increase in the popula tion. Moreover, where the man-power has been depleted by the war its place has been largely taken by the substitu tion of women..

During the war some 4,000,000 acres were added permanently to the land under agricultural cultivation which will make the country less dependent upon foreign sources of food supplies than before the war. - v In manufactures a most significant in crease in output was effected through standardization and improvement - of machinery. ;The world was searched foi the best .machinery! New factories were built; old factories were stripped and re-equipped. As a result of all these conditions the, national wealth has increased from $H2,-. 500,000,000 in 1914 to $116,000,000,000 at the present time, - representing a war-, time increase of 39 per cent.

Denying per sistent rumors to the effect that the Federal Reserve banks have contem plated the recall of loans on cotton or the future issuance of loans, Gov ernor Harding of the Federal Reserve Board, in a letter today to Senator Smith of South Carolina, stated the only change in the position of the banks regarding cotton loans, is a tendency, to the stricter examination Into the grade of cotton shown by re ceipts and pledged as collateraL SHELBY NO LONGER V DEPUTY SHERIFF According to an announcement made yesterday by Sheriff Van Pelt, I, L. Shelby, who has been a deputy sheriff in his department for the past sev eral months, has had his connection with tho department severed. Mr. Shelby is no longer a deputy sheriff. 21QL SPalafcx Roubalx, France, Nov. 16. The new "national costume" for men Is ready to be placed on the market. The first lot is composed of 25,000 suits. The price has been fixed at 110 franc, as compared with 400 to 500 francs as now charged by tailors. The profit of the tailor on the new . "na tional costume". Is fixed at 10 francs a suit. The cloth is of cotton warp with wool enf illing and will range in color from navy blue to light gray, black,. olive drab, dark and light green. Although perhaps not now adapted to the needs of the professional boule vaodier, the new costume is expected to meet thtf requirements of the wage earners and salaried men. Andre de Fouquieres, recognized for several years as the French arbiter of fashion, announced that he would purchase one of the suits as soon as they were placed on sale and that he would wear it. Much of the cloth has been manu factured In Roubaix and Tourcoing. In producing It the government au thorities undertook a difficult task as many French manufacturers had been stripped of their machinery by the German invaders, money was scarce, cotton and wool trebled and quad rupled in price and those employed in the manufacture demanded for a day's work wages they would have been glad to accept as a week's pay before the war.
