An electric 1 alarm iutstl over here nd did gosxe m& to the IktBUot eburoh nod blew aft the front ot Hamlet's dry Rcods Itieuie. Other small daiaa.40 Is teported. In the Interest ronrrnlng the war In tho Held an Important part ot tho conrtlrt- th tarnishing of a large num ber of the alnewi ot war la almost forgotten. V?t nre reminded ot the stamp law almost every day when we forgot to put alamos on checks or when the drug lit charges us two rents ex tra for a bottle of patent medicine, or Kuiethlng of that kind, lint tho tact that the government casually asked the people for IIM.OoO.OOO nnd the peopl offered at onee six and one-half tlmea that amount la little thought of ty the public. It Is taken as a matter of omree. Yet there has been only one other popular loan which has been so quickly subscribed for many times oror. From! aa we may be ot the way In which tho people of the United Itatca opened their pocketbooka when tho nation wanted money for the war, tho subscription nix nnd one-half tlmea over for the recent loan Is nothing Him pa red with the wanner In whleh tho papular loan of French government wns taken up after the Pranco-l'ruMinn war. An Indemnity ot fl. 000.000,000 wns required of France by her oon queror, nnd a popular loan was opened to pay It. it was subscribed for forty tlinos over. From Oormany Itself on me in bids for five times the amount required by tho French government. It Is probable, also, that the French loan waa more nearly what It pur ported to bo, a loan lu which people ot small tneaiiH Invested, than the ro cent American "popular loan." Of this Inter loan it Is cellmated that considerably moic than halt la In tho hands of big Investors. Applications wore put lu tor bonds by rlerka and other employes of big houses and by persons who did not really want the bonds, but desired to have them to tur 1 ovor to large Invoatota for the nale ot maklnr the premium, l'eople who bid for I00 worth of bonds or lens were paid their share at once, hut those who bid for moro woro obliged to de posit i per ront ot the amount of tholr purchase and were to bo paid liter. As theso people are being paid, It Is found that the present hnldors of tho options on tho bonds arc. In a largo number ot ensos, not tho original sub scribers. Though there have been many subscribers of small means, thoro have not been ns mnny as there would havo beon had It uot been tor tho fnot that u man ot small moans can get from 11 savings bank ns Inrgo n por cent, nnd lu most cases n lurger one, than Is paid by government on thtMo bonds. It whh the Intention ot tho government to make tho loan a really popular one, nnd It camo ns near bslng ono as Is possible under oxlstlng con ditions of tho monoy market. Kfery safeguard was thrown around tho sub scription list, and pcoplo of modiirnto moans hnd as good a chnncc as finy body else to buy the bonds. Ono thing was provod, nnywny tho ability ot tho United Stales to borrow money nt any time to nny amount doslred, nnd tho ability to sell Its bonds nt a premium to Its own people. Hut, then, no proof was wanted ot theso facts before. On tM face of It tho recont popular loan looks ns It It wero more of 11 pop liar loan In tho strictest scuto ot tho tsrm than tho French loan, but when our loau Is nnnlyxed the contrary seems to bo tho onsc. Ot tho 300,000 porsons who received awards ot bonds It luuks now as If tho loan would resolve lUolt Into n real subscription ot only 100,000 holders. Tho thing has not beon cleared up yet, nnd the pessimists any that In tho hands at smull subscribers thoro will romaln only 21! per cent of the original lour. Yet one of the olll clals of tho Bub-tronBury of the United States In New York, mindful of tho way In which small bidders havo oold their nwards, says he would not bo surprised If the rU amount held by the small blddors-tho bona II do small bidders would amount to nearly to per cent. Yet ho doubts If It would come near the percentage of the French In this regard. The French are known to be the largest Individual holders at the na tional bonds of their country of any people lu the world. Of government bonds thoro uro no "bloated bondhold ers'with a tow exceptions In this country. The trust cumpanlca, the savings banks and trustee buy nnd hold most ot them as security for money and deposits, so that the bomls may with truth lie really said to be long to tho pcoplo ot small means. The bonds which, for instance, a savings bonk buys and holds against deposits, really belong tu the dcmwl tore, being hold against their deposit. riiuto(rnlir Umltr Water.
