WEALTH CHANGING HANDS 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 business. 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 spent. 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." GOVERNOR GETS PROTEST 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." HIGHWAYMEN RCB DRIVER H. J.

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 Dadiy. and is at times scarcely habit able. 2. Invalid woman asking transpor tation to Minneapolis, where her hus band has just been able to find work. At present the woman Is entirely de pendent and she has been living at the county farm. 3. Man. wife and seven children. Twins born July 4. Mother seriously ill and man 6ut of work. Food and as sistance badly needed. 4. Family of five. Father and moth er both ill, and 15-year-old boy trying in vain to get work to support the family. FRIENDLY SPIRIT NOTED GERMAN - AMERICAN PRESS IS PLEASED WITH BERLIN REPLT. Americas CItlzeas Who Eater War Zone oa Belligerent Vessels Held to Do So at On Risk. 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. ' BRITISH LOAN COMING IN SUBSCRIPTION THOUGHT TO AP PROACH S3, 500,000 .OOO. Confidence Expressed Fall. Amonat Will Be Obtained Without Coatlaalas; Postal OfTerlosr. 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.

Barclays Bank, for example, applied for 18.000, 000, while the Manchester & Liverpool District Banking Company asked for an allotment of 5,000,000.

INDIAN RELICS PROTECTED New Jury Law Against Desecrating Graves Halts Digging. NEWARK. N. J, July 4 Not long ago a tunm court convicted and sen tenced a Pennsylvania archeologisl for digging Into an Indian mound to get relics. The charge was desecration of the graves of the dead. It would have been more reasonable If It had been that of purloining New Jersey state property. But tbs state has never regarded this property aa of any value, and never paid any attention to It. Indian mounds and camps and trails have been lo cated and recorded, but there Is no regular literature about them, and the Interesting relics of the Indian race hidden In the aoll have been exhumed by private lb veallaatora for nnvate collections.

RUSSIAN CONFLICT HURT Tokjo lias 923 3 Young Men or Con scription Afie for This Year, In cluding Permanent and Tem porary Inhabitants. TOKIO. July t. Japan la now experl enrlna an adverse effect of the Chi-neae-Japenese war. shown In the phys ical constitution of her youna men. Just SO years have passed since that war and those youns; men born during that war have now arrived at conscrip tion ace. The Injurious effect on their physical constitution Is proved ty the examinations now bains: carried on by the military authorttlea. The reeult demonstrates, says the Tokio A.ahl. that Toklo has :. youns men of conscription see for thla year. Including; both permanent and tempo rary Inhabitants, decreaae of ! from last year. Ths population of the city Increases each year and, the Asahl says, since 187 the number of youns; roen of conscription see has Increased by toft each year. Ilut for the current year. 10 years after the war. comes the decrease. The Ward of Kanda had SIS youns men of conacrlption are for laal year, but only eiS for this year, wltfc s da crease of about 1Z per cent," says the Asahl. "The direct effect of the war upon the physical constitution of the youns: men is still more remarkable. Out of the Jo youns; men who are temporary Inhabitants cf the Ward of Kan.la and who have Just undergone the examina tion for conscription only four have been aelectcd as flrst-claae because of the state of their physical constitution; three as second class, five as third class and II as fourth class. Three of the remainder have been exempted for III nraa or some other reasons, which make them unable to serve In the army, while the examination of the last two has been postponed for one year mora. The ratio of the first-claee younc men la thus only IS per cent. Last year out of ll youns men ex- mined In the AVard of Kanda. 14 or i2 per cent of the number, were selected at the flrst-claaa candidates for service In the army and the authorities of the War Office could obtain over 1 youna men enlisted from Kanda laat year. Thla la. of courae. the result of the con scription examination only in a part of one ward In Toklo. but It Is feared that the examination In the other parts of Kamla or other wards In the eity. or even tborouihout the country may not bring; out more encouraging; re sults." Ten years later the country has to experience the effect of the Kusso Japanese war, which wag fought on still larsre. scale than the former one. It Is true that after a war the number of births, especially boys, greatly In creases, according to an authority In the War Office, quoted In the Asahl. This was shown by the birth rale 'after the Russo-Japanese war In Japan, and after the Crimean war In those European countries concerned. But still there Is no doubt that ths babies born during any big war are not as strong as those born in ordinary times, because their parents, who slay at homo from the battlefield, are not se strong aa thosa rata serving st the front.
