INVISIBLE DRAIN STOPPED
Economist Points Out That Ameri

and Are Prepared to Em
brace Sew Opportunity. .
'CHICAGO, Jan. . 20. For the first
time In history the United States is
"experiencing the sensation of a real
trade balance In its favor," Dr. Edward
E. Pratt, chief of-the Federal bureau
of foreign and domestic commerce, told
the Illinois Bankers' Association at its
annual dinner here tonight.
As a result of the developments
abroad during the last six months. Dr.
Pratt said, "we have turned the corner
and are facing a new era of business
expansion . in this country an era
which has made the term 'home market'
obsolete- and archaic and put in its
place the unfamiliar term of "world
" PreVloua Balance Unreal.
He explained that while the export
excess in favor of the United States
had ranged annually for 14 years from
$250,000,000 to J650.000.003 "Invisible
factors" had made this only an appar
ent favorable balance.
. Foreign Investment - in the United
States, the speaker said, totalled J7,
500,000,000, with an annual interest of
$350,000,000. constituting a fixed charge
on American Industries, while Amer
ican Investments abroad produced a
revenue yearly of only r75,000,000, re
ducing the balance against the United
States on this count to $275;500,000.
Tourist Travel Heavy Drain.
Moreover, he pointed out. American
tourist traffic poured millions into Eu
ropean coffers each year, the 1914 fig
ure being approximately 128S,000,0J)0;
foreign-born Americans sent home an
nually at least $150,000,000 and foreign
shipping companies collected freight
from American foreign commerce
amounting to J2B,000,000 a year.
The result of all these invisible fac
tors during the fiscal year of 1914, Dr.
Pratt declared, had been to produce an
actual excess of remittance over re
ceipts of $55,030,000.

Sixty-nine ballots were known al

the Judges on the night board that
they rejected them. The recount of
ficials yesterday discovered 51 more
which had been counted by the day
board for Mr. Word and on which
erasures of votes cast for Mr. Hurl

All the apparent changes were made
in favor of Mr.Word. On each of the
121 ballots erasures were plainly vis
ible opposite Mr. Hurlburt's name, and
a cross, usually a great deal different
from the other crosses on the same
ballot, appeared in front of Mr. Word's
name. On some of the ballots it was
plainly apparent that the cross had
been made with a different pencil than
the voter had' used on the rest of the
ballot. - On other ballots the cross was
of widely different character from
those appearing elsewhere thereon.
N. F. Donnelly, chairman of the night
board in Precinct 37, yesterday made
statements which strongly Indicate that
the ballots were changed after the bal
lot boxes were opened.

Mr. Donnelly said he had held a con

the vote on the measures be counted
first in order to save time. This was
agreed to, and on the night of Novem

THE German airships, for they are
thus described by the German of
ficial report, which paid a four hours'
visit to the coast towns of Norfolk
during the night, dropped 20 or more
bombs. The raiders' missiles killed
four persons, injured ten or more
others, and did considerable damage
to property. The report that a fifth
person, a soldier, had been killed,
Yarmouth and Kings Lynn, the
largest towns visited, suffered the
heaviest damage. Eight bombs were
dropped In the former town, one of
them killing an old man and an old
woman, injuring three others and
smashing every window within a radius
of several hundred yards. i
In Kings Lynn a woman and boy
were killed by bombs which demolished
a row of cottages.
Tho air craft also visited Cromer,
which, however, was not attacked;
Sherlngham. where four bombs were
dropped; Dorslngham, Grlmston, Snet

received one missile. Snettlshara and
Heacham are within three miles of the

What composed tho raiding fleet Is
still a matter of discussion. Major
Astley, who commands the National
reserve at Kings Lynn, says that as
the result of Information received by
hint he will report officially that one
of the latest Zeppelin derlgibles took
part. Some persons assert they saw
huge airships, but others say only aero
planes and seaplanes participated.
Aeronautical experts are of the
opinion, from the sise the bombs
dropped, weighing from 60 to 100
pounds each, that airships of the small
non-rigged Parseval typo were em
ployed, and as the German official ac
count refers to "airships," It Is pre
sumed these were the craft used. They

As a consequence of the raid the in
surance rate against damage by air
craft was doubled today and is now
from 50 to 60 shillings per cent. A
large business was done event at those
high rates. ' .
The battles both in the east and the
west now consist largely of artillery
engagements with occasional attacks
by the infantry. The French assert
they have made further progress In the
region of Pont-a-Mousson, to which
military men attach much Importance.
It is predicted that the Germans will
launch a heavy offensive, as they did
with great success at Soissons, to put
a stop to the French advance toward
the roads leading to Metx. The Ger
mans captured more trenches In the
Argonne, but according to the French
official report these trenches were re
taken. The only other point of Importance
disclosed by the official statements is
an intimation in the Berlin communica
tion that the Germans have undertaken
a counter offensive in Alsace
In Poland and Western Galicla the
Germans and Austrlans continue Iso

which, according to the Russian re

tures are like mothers-in-law tn a wa.
As a class they are the subject of
cruel Jests and often of bitter arraign
ment. As a rule, thero Is about it
much justification for deriding one a
the other. There are bad Legislatures
and Impolitic mothers-lu-law, but Ron
erully both try to do the right thlutr.
and usually succeed; yet the good they
do is nearly always discounted by tho
popular superstition that surrounds
It Is a representative body of men
who are sitting In Salem. Why such
men are there. In view of the rhronic
public grumbling that usually follows
a legislative session. Is somewhat of
a mystery. True, some of them were
pulled Into the affair against their will
by popular demand, but many have vol
untarily shouldered the responsibilities
of an ordinarily thankless task,
Pnblle Hard to Please.
One reason for the criticisms that
are directed against Legislatures is the
long-range view the publle has of their
difficulties and the routine of their
operations. The House usually Is the
less ef f lclen.t . of the-two. bodiea, but
there is a reason for It. All the mem
bars are newly elected each blennlum.
There are 0 of them. Some are re
elected members, but the proportion of
the latter Is small. These 0 men are
thrown together suddenly for 40 days
of really arduous labor without know
ing one another and without knowledge
of one another's ideals or sincerity.
They are strangers who must counsel
together for the common Rood. If a
majority . combine on a constructive
programme they are accused of steam
roller tactics. If there Is no organisa
tion or leadership the work Is re
tarded by excessive discussion and long
debate. To be a member of the House
and get out with a popular record
Is no small Job.

The Senators are elected for four
