Washington --The Republican Pu
blicity association, through IU prcsi
dent, Jonathan Bourne, Jr., today
gave out the following statement at
Its Washington headquarters:
"Emboldened by Ihoir unchalleng

administration ban brought whatever
degree of prosperity this country la
now enjoying, the democratic nation
al committer now exprnaaly assorts
that the democratic party haa over

"The chief factor In determining
Industrial conditions Is the balance
of trndn. The following tnble shows
our monthly balances of trade be
ginning with October, 1913, when the
Underwood tariff law was enacted,
and covering a period of 14 months,
from which it will be seen that at
the time the democratic tariff be
came effective Um monthly balance
wii largely In favor of the United
Htates but It steadily diminished un
til April. 1914, when the balance of
trade was against us and continued
against us until September, one
month after the outbreak of the

more than $200,000,000, un'paralleil

Our increaae exports were made

war. During a 1 i-months" period
prior to the Influx of war orders our
exports l !l MMMOOtttM necessary
for maintenance of armies amounted
to anly $605,348,000. but In llM Brat
12 months of the war the export of
these same commodities leaped to the
unprecedented sum of $1,515,64$-
"The fact that tie war caused the
great Increase In demuud for our
product I further lemonstrated by
the record which shows that our ex

lion dollars in the 12-month- per

to foreign trade conditions. There
are other, and, perhaps, no less Im

i.iiullv Influenced by democratic ad
ministration For instance, prior to
the beginning of the war American
tourlhta wore spending In Europe
urns estimated at from $300,000,000
to $500,00t),000 annually, t Iiim (M
itltutiug M.'t outgo for which
hud no corresponding income '1 'In
var not only shut off this expendi
ture, but induced Auierlcau citm-us
to spend a corresponding sum at
home, thus helping to give employ
ment to American labor.
"Again, as everybody knows, large
amouut or American bonds and
atocks were held by foreign Investors
to whom we paid Interest and divid
ends amouutlng annually to many
millions of dollars. After the reop
ening of the stock exchangee more
than a billion dollars' worth of thee

were bought by American Investors
"Not only have these ractors con
tributed in on enormous measure to
the revival of American Industry but
the labor altuatton has been radical
ly affected to the advantage of Amer
ican workmen. During the two fis
cal yeera preceding the war the net
increaae In our population by reaaon
of the inflow and outflow of aliena
was 1,500,000. In the 19 montha
since the outbreak of the war the net
Increase In our population by reason
of the movement of aliens haa been
only 100,000. It la apparent, there
fore, that aa one result of the war,
we have already experienced, rela
tively speaking, cutting off of
1 250,000 Increase of population."
