Secretary McAdoo Returns to Desk
and Prepares for Next Bond
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.

Coast Guard Strengthened
Along the Atlantic coast and the Gulf of Mexico, the many
lighthouses arid coast-guard stations are observation points of
more than unusual importance in time of war. Adequate
means of quick communication is essential.
The Bell System has rendered invaluable assistance to the
Coast Guard in reorganizing and enlarging its telephone system.
Telephone connection.s have been supplied to all the light
houses and coast-guard stations from Maine to Texas by means
of telephone lines and submarine cables.
This company has made large additions to its own plant, to furnish
adequate connections and satisfactory service to the enlarged coast-guard
telephone plants and stands ready at the call of the nation to meet any
new demand.
