Knox Simpson, orthopedic surgeon of the state board of health, and one of tha AMERICANS FIND TURKEY STABLE Constantinople, Nov. 30. (By The Associated Press) American experts who have investigated the financial condition of the former Ottoman em pire say they are convinced that it is fundamentally sound. Several consid erations are advanced to support this conclusion. First, it is stated that the popu lar point of view that Turkey was I bankrupt before the war was partly 'created artificially for the benefit of foreign financial interests with the ob ject of frightening other would be in vestors and for political reasons of establishing spheres of influence. The fact that Turkey was always able to secure loans is cited as evi dence of her financial soundness, though against this may be advanced the observation that she was a politi cal center coveted by many powers who were' ployed, the one against the other, and that financial considera tions were sometimes subordinated to political purposes. It is pointed out that Turkey did not default on her indebtedness, in recent years, but funds for the payment of in terest and amortization were continu- i ally increasing, and doubling at the rate every fifteen years. The revenues of the country as a whole were Increasing at the normal natural rate of other prosperous coun tries in Europe. An enormous percentage of revenue reached the treasury, the loss being estimated by some as high as fifty per cent. This was partly ascribed to the system of farming out the taxes by districts, collectors paying in advance ' a certain sum and then collecting what they could. For Americans who are considering the mandate question or of doing bus iness here under whatever government is established, it Is pointed out that the above facts show revenues already adequate to conduct the old govern ment and that with good government, the old Ottoman empire would have been financially strong. " , Before the war foreign Investments amounted to the equivalent of $1,078, 000,000 of which $783,200,000 was in the public debt or loans to the government and the difference in private enter prises and concessions. The bulk of these investments was in loans to the governor below par so that all of the money never reached the treasury. Enormous commissions are believed to have been paid to Euro pean bankers and in "gratifications" to various local ministers to get their support for the loans. Sums that did reach the treasury are said 1 to have been squandered on palaces, harems, and in other unproductive ways. r So the loans did not, on the whole, create sources of new revenue and therefore the public debt continual ly increased. It is to be noted that in the late seventies and the early eighties the government could, not pay interest on its operations in recognition of the doubtful manner in which most of the loans had been made, and new issues were put out with the old ones being taken in at reduced face value. Suggestion has been made here that these facts may lead , the peace , con ference to write off more of the na tional debt. The object of such loans, it is stated, were partly with the political intent of making Turkey default so interested powers could take over her finances and control the country, as was done in 1881. This led to the creation of loose spheres of . influence, Germany taking Konla Plain,' the French, Syria, with the Italians wanting the province they at present occupy, and the Brit ish and the Russians seeking Constan tinople. In the council of administra tion of the Ottoman public debt, which continued! 'until the war and-has been resumed in some fash ion," there was one Englishman, one Frenchman, one Ger man, one Austrian, and one, Italian, with the presidency alternately occu pied by an Englishman and a French man. Of this public debt France own ed sixty per cent, Britain fourteen per cent, Germany twenty-one percent, and four per cent was owned between the Italians and 1 the Austrians. ' ; -The conclusion of the investigators is that if the investments had been made for productive enterprise and had cre ated sources for meeting interest and the debt, it would have been child's play to carry the debt and pay it off. However, as the debt was lowered,' in spite of the above ' attempts, - addi tional loans were made. Not all of the sums borrowed by the government leading bone specialists in the south.

Financial means to equip , the Episcopal church for the broader opportunities and responsi bilities to which the nation-wide cam paign has awakened it, are to-be ac quired - by the "budget, of which ' the quotas of the two Florida divisions are as follows: Diocese of Florida, Bishop E. G. Wood, $24,665; missionary' district of southern Florida, Bishop Cameron Mann, $33,919. The campaign closed Sunday, ex cept in a few parishes where : longer time will be taken, some until Febru ary 8, -some probably ' until Palm Sunday. The . total nation-wide campaign budget is $42,000,000 for the next three years. Of this sum $14,000,000 covers the usual parochial expenses. . The dif ferences, $23,000,000, is the sum fixed to cover activities and proposed ex pansion in diocosan and general mis sions. Thus,--the annual quota, of slightly more than $9,000,000 over and above these expenses, is the amount the church must raise in addition "to that which It has been raising. A great deal of this $9,000,000 formerly has been contributed to various agencies which have been working independ ently, but which are now to be co ordinated through the nation-wide campaign. The .campaign, with a - relatively small financial goal,- is not regarded by members of the church as a "money drive." No large gifts are sought, and the Increased rontrihiitirtna sn ov j pected through the weekly collections rather than otherwise. The expansion of the church to be made possible by the nation-wide campaign budget is expected to be a permanent condition, as it is contemplated the budget will be renewed every three years.

SMITHWICK BACK AT HOUSE DESK By George H. Manning. Washington, D. C, Dec. 6 The Florida senators and congressmen, with exception of Mr. Sears, all got back on the job last Monday, after the short recess, for the regular session of congress which is sure to run into next July at the earliest. Congressman J. H. Smithwick of the Western Florida district, after mak ing a hurried trip to his district during the recess was on hand when the ses sions opened and expects to remain here until the final gavel falls. Staying on the job from the opening to the closing of the sessions each day that congress meets, and attending to a multiplicity of departmental matters for his constituents during the morn ing before the sessions open is a thing that Mr. Smithwick has done since March 4 last, in a manner that is proving very gratifying to his friends, and disconcerting to his few political enemies in his district. While observing the usual custom for new members of being seen always and seldom heard for their first term, the Pensacola congressman stands very well with the House leaders, watches the legislation very closely and is ever on the alert for the interests of the people of his district.

McClure and officer Milford yes terday. Four gamblers were taken in the raid and made bond for their appearance today. The Crystal Pharmacy was broken into shortly after midnight yesterday morn ing and a quantity of Cocaine and other narcotics were stolen. The robbery was investigated by officer' Humphries and Roberts, but no arrests so far have been made. ; IP A sir 0 RO E BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT HTTII TIIE B. F.
