Hysteria has at last disappeared and is now giving way to u sober recognition of the fact that conditions have radically changed and that the sooner husiuess begins to readjust Itself to these pew conditions the sooner will it be started' on the road to real recovery. Of course the abnormal stringency In money is still the chief scurce of difficulty. Cntil ihi't abates It Is Idle to look for any change for the better. Credit is lmd!j disorganized and unable to take its part In the nation's transactions. Con seipiently there is an abnormal de mand for currency just when the pr vailing distrust keeps alive the ten ency to hoard. Not until the preniiun on currency begin to bo withdrawn and not until bank reserves begin t rise can any genuine improvement b looked for. It is quite evident, now that the situation has passed beyon the possibility of relief by artificial measures, that it, must he allowed to work out its own solution. K Events' must take their natural course. There is olreadp a very large increase in currency supply, ami wo possess :v.i enormous stock of gold, which promis es to ho still further increased by im portations i mill noroail. As soon a? business returns to the normal or set ties down to the lower level wo wTP surely he confronted with an exc-s sive inflation of currency and all the mi pleasant, (cnseipiencen which thai may Involve. This, however, is a con UugiT.ey somewhat remote and can be b.'st dealt with, when it arrives, 'which uinv, not lt until the end of winter or the arrival of spring. During the in terini we shall probably be fully occu pied with the ineilable process of re adusjtmeiit into which we have piling ed willt unexpected force and sudden ness. Incidentally wo may receive some encouragement by the efforts of congress to give us a sound and elas tie currency system; for that is suiv to be burning and possibly the lead Ing quesl ion in the coining session. I'nl'oi Innately the legislative outlook is confused by a multiplicity of prop oltions Hill by the absence fo any unity of purpose or strong leadership; but, somoCiing is almost sum to be done t: correct the llgidiiy of cur currency system, which is now so seriously aggravating tho linanelnl sit uation. The panicky feeling so prominent in Wall Street two r.r three weeks ago has now extneded in modified form in to general business. Merchants am often seriously Inconvenienced by the contraction in credit, buyers seek to ,anecl orders and values are frequent- J ly weakened in consequence. Fortu nately there are few markets that are overtsocked, and this prevents any such wholesale slump In commodities as occurred in securities.. If any over supply develops, it will come from lessened consumption; and as steps are already being taken to curtail pro duction in the iron, cotton and other Industries that danger is being re duced to a minimum. There is little doubt that when tho monetary sit nation improves, the conditions of gen eral business will be found fairly sa'. jiifaelor.y and sound. It Is of course unhcrsull.v recognized I bat cosls of production are too high and mil."', reduced. It. Is also recognized th.it we are in for a period "of business de pression of creator or less extent. The beavv ciirl.iilment. of pig Iron produc tion, the partial closliij? of factories, and (he discharge of many employes, as well as the post ponenient of many enterprises, are all uncontrovertable evidences of reaction. Hut this can he endured and the necessarv read- elstment effected without great In jury provided it conies gradually and Is generally foreseen. It is the nn-' expected troubles that do the mos. injury; those which are anticipated can generally be guarded against. On the Stock Exchange there was continued depression owing (Jiiefly to high rates for money nnd to further liquidation. Time money is exceeding ly scarce, rates being from 8 to 12 per cent mid even higher. Of course, the forced conlrai tirti of credit Is ac companied li- frequent calling or shift iur. of lot-n. and t'ds In turn rpmpoK a .i- n-lj strcani Of 'HqiiJdntiop; From luteuor the d in,inds for ruirene of part ks who were tided over when the pan lo was at its height in order to save them from unnecessary sacri fices, inevitably there must be con siderable selling from such source.

Their atmosphere is not. metropolitan. They are not of the center. They are on the fringe. That is why London has so little local pride. It is not. a community. It is a congeries of suburbs, each with Its separate narrow interests, grouped around a little city whose citizens have so wide a horizon that they can spare next to no attention for local affairs.
