Short History of the First
Liberty Loan
On the 0th day of April, 1917,
a state of war was declared (ih
existing between the United
States and Qormnny. Secretary
of tho Treasury McAdoo im?
mediately advised Congress of
thcllnaucial necessities of the
country, und on the 24th of
April the greatest bond bill in
the history of the United States
and one of the greatest in the
world was passed by a practic?
ally unanimous vote by both
Houses of Congress. The law
authorized the issue of $6,000,
600,000 In bonds und $2,000,000,
000 in certificates of indebted?
ness, t>n the '2nd day of May
it was announced that the first
bond issue was to bo for$2,000,
1)00,000 and the entire issue was
named the Liberty Loan of
1017. On the 14th day of May
the details of the bonds were
made public and subscriptions
formerlly invited. The cam?
paign opened on the 16th day
of June with the result (but
over 4,000,000 American citizens
of every section, race, class
and condition subscribed to
Liberty Loan Homls and tho
aggregate amount of their sub?
scriptions was well over j 11,000,
000,000
The four great outstanding
feature's of 'the first Liberty
Lean have been said to be (he
promptness with which the is
issue was arranged and dis?
posed of, tho patriotism, earn?
estness and oftloiellC) which
marked the campaign, tho mag?
nificent result in the amount
subscribed and the number of
subscribers, and the avoidance
of any interruption of the busi?
ness of the country normally to
bo expected from so huge a do?
main! lipon the finances of the
Nation.
The Grinding of the Gods
"The mills of tin' gods grind
olowly, but they grind exceed?
ingly line." Never was tho
truth of the foregoing more ap
parent than at the present time.
In 1914 tho world was plung?
ed into t'ne Wiit by the action of
Austria?insolent a u d domi?
neering?insisting upon I h 0
chastisement of poor little Ser?
bia, a nation over which she
had ty rani zed for generations,
and which she was even then
holding in forced and unjust
subjugation. Hut in her haugh?
ty disregard for the rights of
others, Austria Bowed the wind
from which she is now reap?
ing tho whirlwind.
Kecent and persistent press
dispatches indicate that the
empire is in a bad way. Rent
uud torn by the strife she her?
self precipitated, she will bo
only too K'nd to make pence on
any terms that would leave hor
oven tho semblance of a nation.
But poaco with Austria will
mean practically extinction as
n nation. Iu tho very probable
event of a Gorman victory she
would bo all but devoured by
that aggressive neighbor in pay
for services rendered. On tho
other hand, a complete entente
victory will mean that she wil
bo almost, totally dismembered
and hor ill-gotten territory re?
stored to tho different peoples
from whom sho wrested it.
Tho way of the trunsgressor
is hard, for notions as woll us
for individuals.
