There are available some figures of tremendous sig nificance. , ... . In March last year our balance of trade with foreign snnnoooo in our favor, in April it was. against us by some $11,000,000, again in May against lis by $2,500,000, again in June against us by $650,000, in July against us by $0,000,000, and still against us in August by $19,000,000. Then, the war being fully under way, the tide ot lor- were it not for the weakness of her allies, Austria and TiivWpv Thpsp nations mav even now he negotiating fori J r - --o U M 1 separate peace, as is continually rumored, and it may Deoni tnis iact mat tne Ji,ngnsn Dase-ineir principal mpe w Medford smv. The Jackson county early success. Speculation, however, is of little value in a fair ground, have becu leased by the ' . i t i v i V, t.an ibcattleban Francisco auto service line case of this kind where we know so little about the ieaijBlul tPllt eity wi be erei.teil for the situation, because of censored and scant news reports, overflow from the Mediora hotels. The few of them giving information of real value in summing up the situation. There is a statesman out in Illinois who has introduced a bill at Springfield to prohibit legislative candidates from pledgng themselves for or against propositions in advance of their election and individuals or organizations from asking them to pledge themselves as to how they will stand if elected. It must be confessed that it is rather em barrassing for a candidate for a law-making job with little experience in making a success of other affairs, to be called upon to express himself and state where he will stand on a proposition. But what s the use of all this act ivity to provide against embarrassment of candidates for legislative jobs, when the ruling notion is that campaign promises are not meant to be kept? Mrs. Jess Willard claims to be the happiest woman in the woiid because her husband won the world's champion chip, and the wealth that goes with the title. Still if Jess eign trade turned in our fr goes the way near,y aU fomer championg sh(? in our favor was $17,000,000. In October it arose to o7, 000,000 in our favor. In November it went up to w,uuu, 000 in our favor, and in December to nearly $1:j2,000,000, making the total balance in our favor for the last five months of the year, $285,000,000. January added to this $115,500,000, February added $17:,G00, 000 more, and March figures will bring the total for the first three months of this year up to fully a half billion in our favor. Since all the world is financially crippled by the war, the question naturally arises: How long and to what lim its can this country stand the strain of shipping this fast increasing flood of goods abroad on credit? To what ex tent can we stand becoming the world's creditor nation? The answer is more simple than it might seem. We have been owing large principal of foreign invest ment in our securities in the sense that we must every year pay abroad interest on the bonds and dividends on the stocks, with possible liquidation of the securities them selves when they are offered to us for repurchase. There is somewhere between four and five billion of American securities held by foreigners. We as a people are at least paying our debts to the the outside world at a record-breaking rate. REWARDS OF GENIUS. win soon nave good reason to long lor the old days when Jess was an honest cow puncher of the plains, far removed from easily acquired riches and all the tempta tions which accompany it. Mexico has it over this country in one respect, any way. Money is so plentiful there that ten dollars in gold will buy a whole bale of it. Even Wisconsin is beginning to go dry in spots. It is unlikely, however, that Milwaukee will vote for prohibi tion in the immediate future. Gifford Pinchot has been sent back from Belgium by the Germans. Seems like we can't lose that man. Some wise persons have discovered that the surest way to keep neutral is to keep their mouths shut. The converted cruiser Eitel seems determined to keep everybody guessing until the last minute..

Lewis and Robertson lived broad and tense lives. These were of nature's own royal blood; they had great feelings, and they filled great spaces. Many of the world's! greatest writers, inventors, scientists, jurists, statesmen have died poor. Rut they lived with a richness that money could never measure. The great insurance house of England, Lloyd's, is bet ting even money that the war will end by September first. That it will end by December fii'st thev are betting at odds oi iv u) i. mere is a leeung iiaiurauy mar such a con-j cern must have "inside" information or it would not be as-j Miming such financial risk as these wagers imply. There' is also some basis for these war wagers in the writings of! leading correspondents. These, too. are in close touch with the situation and understand the secret plans of the' warring nations perhaps as well as Lloyd's. One of them' rio'tfaros that the allies have a plan they believe will result in crushing Germany and that a supreme effort in that direction is to be made near the end of the present month. As a gambling proposition, however, Germany must be reckoned with and it is not going to bo an easy matter to crush that empire, which still holds grimly to the territory1 wrested from the allies at the beginning of the war, and! shows little outward sign of weakening at any point.
