Banker Says Superfluous Im
ports Threaten Supply of
, Cash Needed for War.
Consumption or Kind Xot Necessary
to Victory - of Arms Likely to
Increase; Subscriptions to
German Loan Contrasted.
LONDON. July 4. (Correspondence
of the Associated Press.) A prominent
London banker, in a long? letter to the
press, pleads for a great national wave
of public and private economy in Ens
land. Such a campaign, he urges, is
necessary, to enable the nation to meet
successfully the financial problems be
fore It In connection with the war.
The "trade balance" against Eng
land for the present year. Is estimated
by the writer at well over 5,000,000.
000. "This balance," he says, "will
have to be provided either by borrow
ing largely in America, a course to
-which there are serious difficulties and
objections, or by selling sufficient
American securities to cover the de
ficit, or by sending gold. Any of these
methods is likely to prove a difficult
Abnormal Price Result.
"As the balance of' Indebtedness
grows, so the exchange rates grow more
unfavorable to the country concerned,
and so do its imports cost more and
more. For this reason, Russia Is at
this moment paying nearly 30 per cent
over the normal price for all her im
ports, Germany over 13, Austria 20 per
cent, Italy 10 per cent. France about 3
per cent and Great Britain about 1
per cent.
"It is necessary to recognize that the
maintenance or our free gold market
will certainly Involve a heavy strain on
our gold reserve. We are the only mar.
ket left from which gold can be ob
tained, and, while most of the gold
newly mined comes here, we are ob
liged, owing to the pressure of our own
and our allies' imports, to let much go.
A good many millions have been ex
ported in the last two or three months
-end the flow continues. The more we
import the greater our Indebtedness
and the more difficult do these two
tasks become.
Economy Is Paramount Necessity.
"We are brought back again, then, to
the paramount necessity to our country
of economy such economy as is be
ing practiced today by the Germans.
We import nearly 300,000,000 pounds
worth a year of food, about the same
amount of raw materials and nearly
200,000,000 pounds of manufactured ar
ticles. Every pound's worth of food
wasted, of meat, petrol, rubber, to
bacco, or any other article which we
can economize, unnecessarily consumed
means a pound's worth-more import and
a pound more in the bill against us.
We should import only absolute neces
sities and produce everything in this
country that we possibly can. To im
port what is superfluous means to re
duce by so much the money available
for government loans.
"One effect of our lavish expendi
ture is to transfer a large amount of
Income, from the wealthier to the poorer
classes. A large readjustment of
wealth is in process. So far so good.
In itself, no doubt, excellent, but not
if the money which is in the hands of
the wealthy would be saved is in the
hands of its new possessors simply
Money Is,. Feins; Redistributed.
"Money Is being taken out of the
pockets of the investing classes and be
ing redistributed in the form of higher
wages, war bonuses, separation allow
ances, and so forth, among the non-investing
classes. Consumption is, there
fore, likely to increase and consumption
of a kind not necessary for the con
duct of tht war. More food, drink and
tobacco will be consumed; more labor
employed in services not contributing
to the national strength; more time un
profitably spent; less money saved.
The class which is so greatly enriched
by the war is 'not the very poorest
class, in which case extra expenditures
would be Justified, but mainly the ar
tisan and better-paid working class,
which is already comfortably off.
"It is not as if saving were any sac
rifice to them. It is madness of them
not to save in this period of their ex
ceptional prosperity against the certain
day of shrinkage in the future.
"In the last German war loan the
number of subscribers was Just short
of 2.003.000. It would be surprising if
the number of subscribers to our war
loan numbered 30.000."
Mr. Albee Asked to Investigate Xegro
Photoplay Objections.
Governor Wlthycombe, replying yes
terday to a communication from Mrs.
E. D. Cannady, who is backing the
movement .among the colored people
of this city to prevent the film, "The
Birth of a Nation," being shown in a
local playhouse, said that while he
had no knowledge of the film's treat
ment of the subject, if it were as Bhe
said he Tiad no sympathy with the
showing of that photoplay in Oregon.
The Governor explained that he had
no official voice in the matter but
said he was asking Mayor Albee to in
vestigate. "I am rot familiar with the story of
"The Birth of a Nation," wrote the
Governor, "but if it is as you say. I
certainly have no sympathy with its
exhibition in this state. I am writing
to Mayor Albee making the suggestion
that if the film is actually provocative
of. prejuice it Is my opinion that it
should not be exhibited."
H. J. Xoonan Is Relieved of $10 by
Armed Couple.
Two highwaymen, one equipped with
a lantern and the other armed with a
revolver, held up H. J. Noonan. a driver
for the National Laundry, and robbed
him of - J10 early Saturday night Just
after the driver had delivered a pack
age at 1500 Martha street.
AccoroiiiE to a police report, one rob.
ber cowed Noonan with the gun while
the other went through his pockets.
Charities, However, Has Only $3173
of $50 00 Needed.
Efforts will be made this week to
bring the total of tne relief fund of
the Associated. Charities ip to at least
$3500, irrespective of what may be
brought In from the gate receipts of
yesterday's baseball game, a percent
age of which will be given to the Char
ities. Donations came in slowly last week,
and except , for a single gift of tl00,
the returns from the campaign would
have been comparatively small. Thus
rar. tne urgent demands for relief for
the poor have taken the money almost
as fast as it has come In. but the sit
uation has modified slightly in the
past few weeks and it is hoped that
the Charities will be able to handle Its
cases tnrougnout tne summer, provid
ed, of course, the full fund of J5000
can be raised. Only a little more than
two-ruths of that amount has been
raised up to data
The Charities handles chiefly cases
oi lamllles that are In destitute cir
cumstances or women who have been
left with children to care for.
Following are a few cases reported
in yesterday:
1. Man ill with tubercular trouble.
Nine children in the family must be
supported from the slight earnings of
a 16-year-old girl, who works In a
bag factory. There are three pairs of
twins in the family. ' The entire group
is obliged to live in a tent, which leaks

2. Invalid woman asking transpor

3. Man. wife and seven children.

Comment of German-American news
papers in the United States on the Ger
man reply to the American note includ
ed the following:
Chicago Abendpost The German an
swer to the American note of June 10
is friendly and firm. As an answer to
the demands made by our Administra
tion the note is what was expected
unsatisfactory. In form it is more of
a justification of the Germans stand
point and an appeal to the American
love of justice than an answer to the
American note. In spirit, however, it
is an answer, and a plain one at that.
St. Paul Volkszeitung Under the
caption. "Germany Meets Us More Than
Half Way," the paper says: The new
German note is a governmental guar
antee of safety to all Americans who
cross the Atlantic in vessels prop
erly flying the American flag. How
ever, if American citizens prefer to en
ter the dangerous war zone in a bellig
erent vessel carrying a cargo of arms
and ammunition to the allies the Ger
man government declines to protect
such f oolhardiness. The German gov
ernment refuses to grant such reckless
American citizens the right to Insure
the safe delivery to its enemies of arms
and ammunition which would kill many
thousands of Its sons and imperil its
very existence.
Uenver Herold The friendly spirit
which permeates Germany's latest note
to the United States Government should
go a long way toward allaying all
fears that Germany is looking for more
trouble. No one cognizant of the real
state of affairs could, for a moment
imagine that Germany would give up
her submarine warfare as long as Eng
land's tactics are contrary to all Inter
national laws and usages. -
Cincinnati Freie Presse The answer
of the German government gives the
united States everything that can be
asked: Safety for freight steamers, if
they are in legitimate commerce, and
security for American travelers on
American or neutral ships, or on ships
which sail through the war zone under
the flag. More to demand Washington
has no right. Our Government has no
business to procure safety on the ocean
for British ships carrying munitions.
Illinois Staats Zeltung (Chicago) If
the German reply to the American note
will be read neither with animosity nor
with prejudice. It will be clear to our
Government, as' well as to the people
of the United States, that Germany is
endeavoring to meet the demands of
this country half way. '

LONDON. July 11 Reginald Mc-
Kenna, Chancellor of the. Exchecquer,
last night expressed deep" satisfaction
with the response to the issue of the
British war loan.
The general expectation today was
that the total subscription would reach
between f 600,000.000 ( and
700.00a.000 (13,500.000.000). although
some expressed confidence that the full
1.000,001.000 (S5. 000.000.000) would be
received and - that it would not be
necessary to continue to sell to small
subscribers through the postoffice.
which is the government's present in
tention. -
Many of the more conservative bank
ers decline to announce the amount
they have applied for, but although no
amounts such as those taken by three
joint banks yesterday 62.000.000
were made public today, the list includ
ed applications for amounts of from
1.000,000 to 18.000.000. Barclays
Bank, for example, applied for 18.000,
000, while the Manchester & Liverpool
District Banking Company asked for
an allotment of 5,000,000.
