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. Great Britain's remain
ingforeign investments exceej? her ex-

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..

It is estimated that in 1913 only 43
per cent, of the total food consumed in
the country was of domestic production.
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.
England's, recovery and industrial ex-t
pansion following the Napoleonic Wars
furnish an object lesson.. that may well
be recalled in connection with the pres-
lent situation- "

LOANS ON COTTON
Washington, Nov. 16. 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

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.
REGULAR BOWELS IS HEALTH.
Bowels that move spasmodically
free one day and stubborn the next
should be healthfully regulated by Dr.
King's New Life Pills. In this way you
keep the Impurities of waste matter
from circulating through the system
by cleansing the bowels thoroughly
and promoting the proper flow of bile.
Mild, comfortable, yet always reli
able. Dr. King's New Life Pills work
with precision without the constipa
tion results of violent purgatives. 25c
