Secretary of the Treasury McAdoo has returned to his duties in Wash ington after a vacation of two months la the mountains west along the Pa cific CoaBt, and at White Sulphur Springs, Va. He spent the greater part of his first day at the Treasury Department, President Wilson went over from the White House alone to ward 6 o'clock and Joined the Secre tary, there, and the two engaged In a long conference over pending ques tions of war finance and Federal ad ministration of railroads. While at the Treasury Department, Secretary McAdoo met newspaper men and told them he had been won derfully benefited by his rest since the close of the last Liberty Bond campaign, and that he came back to work feeling better in every way than he had Blnce he was a boy and fished with a pin. The Secretary said that his first duty now was to take up exhaustively the whole general subject of taxation. He will meet with the Ways and Means Committee, go over estimates of moneys required and discuss with the committee various forms of taxa tion and the different fields of sup port for the heavy rates that the exi gencies of war required should, he imposed. , ' Secretary McAdWo expressed full reliance on the loyal sentiment of business men and tbe income earn ers throughout the country. So long as the manhood of the United States la driving back the Germans, the peo ple at home, he said, would put up the money to help them. He was not prepared to say what the size of the next bond issue will be, nor could he give any idea until he had had time to examine the prog ress that had been made by the Ways and Means Committee in arranging the next tax hill. He had been furnished no reason .to modify tbe estimates he had made a . month or more ago, was without definite information as to how far the committee had been able' to ad vance the tax line up to the mark set 1n the estimates, he said. Just as soon as the work of the committee was completed, and the volume of money to be provided by taxation could be determined, the Secretary said he would announce the amount and the terms of tbe next bond Issue. Although no assurance was given, there was no Intimation in the secretary's statement that any change in the interest rate was con templated. The financial condition of the coun try, McAdoo said, was never more promising for the sale of bonds by the Government .than it is now, from every means of Information available, either through official channels or those of banking and private business.
