Thinks End Is Near. By Robert J. Bender. (United Press staff correspondent.) Washington, Dec. 10. President Wil son believes the door is closing upon the great war struggle abroad and thHt be fore long the time will come for the friendly service of neutrals. But he is convinced that the immedi ate present is not the. opportune time for the United States to extend nny mediation offer. Hence he is waiting developments which will follow receipt of all the central-powers ' peace pro posals by their enemies. He is giving a tremendous amount o'i study to all angles of the situation, hav ing before him Germany's quasi-official peace terms, a mass ot confidential in formation from the, American embassy at Berlin and every atom of available information as to the grounds upon which the allies would enter a confer ence looking to terminating the war. Especially is he interested in learn ing tlie contents of Premier Lloyd Oeorge's speech to parliament next week- He has made it clear to those in his confidence that he would take no step toward mediation until sure it would be successful. Until that time came, "anything said or done imme diately by this government, not only would not help the movement toward peace, but would actually retard it," says his closest friends. Awaiting Right Movement. For that reason the president has consulted Secretary Lansing, seeking facts as to the psychological moment for this government 's intercession with an offer of services to tne warriors. Ad ministration men believe the trend to ward this psychological moment w ill de velop soon. The last of the peace proposals -should be on the cables by night, a state de partment official said. It was pointed out there had already been one sudden change of plans as to dispatching of the proposals. General discussion by officials of the allied governments is expected to de velop at once, upon receipt of the Ger man proposals. According to advices from London, confidential interchange of opinion is already under way among the foreign offices of Great Britain, France, Russia and Italy. Lloyd-Oeorgo is expected to sum up and state to the world the allies' view point next Tuesday. This will be the first as regards possibilities of a suc cessful peace move, in the near future. Other neutrals interested, Spain and Switzerland, will follow his load. In German embassy circles here there is great optimism over the peace out look. It is pointed out that already a tremendous change, has occurred in the attitude of the British officials and public. That Germany has started talk which will reach into the hearts and homes of every belligerent country un til demand for stopping hostilities is ir resistible, is the confident belief of Teu ton sympathizers here. mm m will (Continued from p&ge one.) be extended was between the slate and the company and did not touch th contract between the company unil the users, nut ine entire Loard was of the opinion that the water users should be heard and set the date accordingly.

For some week pat this market has been ruled by moae tary couuu.uu.. uwmfc to uio iremend ' " 0U8 dram uPon our bnl"nB resource the supplv of loanable funds have been ;;MUOd in the Cnited States to the n- . . .on Ann k;i. k t(nt f ncr,y fMOO.OOO.OOW while new capital application reported oy do- nie-sti. railroad and industrial corpora- tion aggregated $2,070,000 000, a total of $3,450,000,000, or about $50.000,00o more thau m the rirst eleven months of 1915. These figure cover only the principal states and do not include the loans put out by municipalities or the s.ates, nor the innumerable issues by smaller concerns, of which it is impos sible to keep close track, nor the mil lion of repurchased foreign holding o'i Americans. In addition to these de mands upon our supply of capital, there has been tho enormous drain upon bank ing resources arising from the extraor dinary activity to trade and the high prices of commodities. The consequence of these demands is now being felt in a diminished supply of loanable funds and tne resultant possibility ot too large an expansion of credit. It was these condi tion that doubtless induced the federal reserve board to issue a notice of cau tion agaiuBt a too free absorption by banks of foreign loans and notes; and the Bituation was further aggravated by the low condition of bank reserves at New York, the total surplus reserve of the New York Clearing House bank a week ago being only $41,000,000, or $138,000,000 les than a year ago. This decline was partly due to the absorption of gold by the federal reserve banks in various parts of the country, these in stitutions holding $598,000,000 of the precious metal December 1, an increase in 12 months of over $100,000,000. The clearing house bauks held $326,000,000 in specie, an increase of $63,000,000 compared with a year ago; which loans stood at 9i, 30,000,000, or $230,000,000 more thau last year at the same date- A Wise Move. The wisdom of preventing a too ranid absorption of foreign obligations is not tneretore questioned; although, on the other hand, there was no indication of excess in this direction as yet, especial ly as the security was prime and the placing of British treasury notes would have proved a protection of our own gold supply in event of smaller exports and larger imports making it possible for Europe to recall our gold later on. If caution were needed anywhere, it was in the flotatiou of a number of in dustrials of a questionable character, especially those based upon ptesent ab normal profits which cannot be perman ently sustained. EveutaHy losses from such ventures will far exceed those upon best government issues; some of which will later on provide good profits at present prices. Another complication in the monetary situation was the neces sity of the British government main taining sterling exchange. Great Bri tain is particularly inienested in pre venting dear money at New York, and to aid in this direction another consider able amount of gold has been engaged for this market, of which over $35,000, 000 has already arrived from Canada. During the latter portion of the week the money market showed an easier ten dency owing to gold imports'and a par tial return of funds from the interior. Message Reassuring. Congress opened on Monday and the president's message proved decidedly re assuring. His appeal for justice to" the railroads will receive the approval of all fair-minded people. His declared resist ance to the demands of a small body of organized labor who would paralyze the whole railroad system of the country to secure their wants was also in the line of safe and sane policy.

Some reaction is to be ex- pected when peace come; but scarcity ! of materials and labor coupled with ad-' mag wages win prevent anv ma terial fall in commodities for a long per iod; and the corrective can only come through natural processes of increased production and decreased consumption. All the great powers now at war have made prodigious effort at keeping down prices, only Jo fail; and their of" forts to enforce economy have not been half as effectual in this direction as 91 advancing prices. Both Great Britain ' and Germany have strenuously eudeav- ored to regulate supplies and prices, with more succeis and intelligence than .other nation; yet neither ha attained .any real measure of success. Campaign in Rumania. Germany 's campaign in Rumania is a matter of much military importance, be- cause, if successful, it will provide Gcr niany with vast supplies of grain, meat and oil. Rumania i, a great agricultural country, ranking third as a grain uro- ,illri.r ;,, thn wnr I.I Th.i tk. ..fu..i progressing rapidly enough is evidenced by the present friction in high political circle in Great Britain. Hence, in or der to ecnre a more vigorous prosecu tion of the war, she hns mado Lloyd George premier in place of Mr. Anquith. Through all the darkness and confusion hanging over Europe, there is till no gleam as vet of peace; for, while Ger many seem prepared to consider term, the allies display a determination to push the war to more favorable conclu sion. Making Big Profit. Operations on tho stock market have ),een ou a diminished scale, dun of course to the restriction of the money market. Aside from this factor, there has been no real change in the financial situation. Within tho last two or three weeks there has been very considerable liquidation and the decline has reached greater proportions than anticipated. The technical position of the market has been strengthened somewhat by these developments, but no pronounced im provement can be looked for until the monetary situation is clarified. Many of our industrial and financial concerns are making exceedingly satisfactory reports; so, too, are the principal raii road corporations. A few are making amazing profits, only a portion of which are likely at present to go to stockhold ers. Tho increased cost of doing busi ness is generally recognized, also the tendency of advancing wnges. Manag ers are generally pursuing a policy of strengthening their concerns to meet possible contingencies arising out of the present crisis, aud it is usually conceded that profits have about reached their zenith aud probably will not bo dupli. cated in 1917. There is an excellent in vestment demand for all desirable issues which promises to bo augeutod by liber al January disbursements. Many new offerings are being made, not a few of which are exceedingly attractive, but intending purchasers should be on guard against questionable promotions which present conditions encourage. When the curren liquidation has run its course, re newed speculative activity and a bet ter market may be expected, provided the monetary situation improves and no untoward developments occur in foreign or domestic politics. The possibilities of difficulty with either Germany of Mexico are still wits us and should not be forgotten. HENRY CLEWS. ik STATE HOUSE NEWS W. D. Barnes, of Tumalo; A. L.
