the crew, were lost on a British trans
port which has been sunk by a mine
off the entrance to the Dardanelles,
according to the Oversees News Agency,

The British transport Royal Edward

It is not certain whether the two an

give the date of the sinking.

She said she and her father were sep

lived for 15 years In an Eskimo vil
lage and learned that her father was
alive only through newspaper notices
of his death.
Objection to distribution of tne es

them and they would be asked to con
tribute their share to insure uninter
rupted continuance of America's export
Whether Great Britain could furnish
sufficient American securities at pres
ent to serve as collateral for this big
loan was another question considered.
It was thought that should she not be
able to raise this sum, Canadian and
South American securities Government
bonds and yen hlgh-claas railway
bondswould be thought sufficiently
stable to serve as collateral for a part
of the loan.
This raised a Question: Would the
Controller of the Currency sanction
loans by National banks on the bonds
of South American governments; and
to go further, would such loans be
sanctioned where high-grade South
American railway bonds were offered
as collateral? -

Remedies for Differences.
LONDON, Sept. 3. Large American
financial houses in London, such as
Morgan, Grenfell & Co.. the Farmers"
Loan & Trust Company of New York,
and the Equitable Trust Company of
e lork. were highly gratified at
today's upward bound in exchange,
which they construed as indicating
that the recent decline had reached the
bottom point and tnat conditions now
were; likely to improve.
The consensus of opinion was that
the suddenness of the fall and the re
covery clearly showed the drop was
the result of speculation rather than
of any deep-seated evil in financial
It developed today that daily ses
sions have been held of late by repre
sentatives of leading financial inter
ests with a view to formulating reme
dies for exchange differences, but these
were discontinued on the sailing of the
British commissioners for New York,
as future remedies are largely com
mitted to their care.
The manager of the Equitable Trust
Company pointed out today that the
recent heavy decline in rates was large
ly on paper, as people had stopped do
ing business and virtually no sales had
occurred during the depression.
While expressing hope for a steady
improvement, he said he considered it
premature to assert that thiB was now
assured, as no one was able to tell in
advance, . ;
The managers of the Farmers' 'Loan
& Trust Company said that one of the
main contributing causes of today's
recovery in rates was that people out
side the speculating class had con
cluded to defer payments until the sit
uation had improved and this caused
such a falling of business at low rates
that they moved upward to a level
which would attract business. He and
the other best informed authorities ex
pressed the belief that the worst of
the depression had passed and that
conditions would improve steadily. All
said they look forward.' hopefully to
the arrival of the French and British
commissioners in New York -within a
few days, as- likely to produce an ad
