MAKERS , ,M , BRITAIN'S WAR BILL SIX MILLION A DAY England's National Debt Will Be Near Four Billion Pounds at End of the Year. ANNOUNCEMENT BY LAW London, Feb. 12. The average daily expenditure of Great Britain is now 5,790,000, Andrew Bonar Law. chancellor of the exchequer, an nounced in the House of Commons today. The chancellor said the total ex penditure since the beginning of the war was 4,200,000,000. At the end of the current year the national debt wonld stand between 3,800,000,000 and 3,900,000,000. Ad vances to allies and dominions would be approximately 390,000.000. The number of applications and the amount applied for by the general public for the new loan, the chancel lor said, were larger than ever before. The chancellor pointed out that the total votes of credit for the current financial year would amount to 1, 950,000,000. He said that was in ex cess of the estimate of Reginal Mc Kenna, chancellor of the exchequer under the Asquith government, and that the increase was due to addi tional expenditures for munitions and advances to the allies and dominions. The average expenditure had in creased by 1,000,009 daily as com pared with the first sixty-three days of the financial year. There also had been an increase in expenditures for the army, but it was proportionate with the increase in the number of troops, the army being fourteen times as large as when the war began. The amounts asked for, Mr. Law said, would enable the government to meet expenses until the end of May. Of the last vote of credit there had been an unexpected balance of 76,000.000. In making advances to its allies, the chancellor continued. Great Bv hand Britain considered one thing only whether it would be in the general interest, lie emphasized the impor tance of co-ordination in every field and that the conference at Rome had resulted in decision in regard to a policy to be adopted toward Greece, which policy was now being followed. Mr. McKcnua said that never be fore had such a large credit been asked at the beginning of a session and that the government mnst be in tending to prevent Parliament from reviewing the expenditures during ihe coming months, or else the monrv thus provided should tide the country over a possible Parliamentary recess or election. Mr. Law said the ques tion of a general election hail never entered his mind. Nebraska Retail Dealers Hold Meeting in Lincoln (Prom a Staff Correspondent. ) Lincoln, Feb. 12. (Special Tele-, gram.)
