THE MESSAGE WILL HASTEN PEACE
Tim current weekly financial letter of Henry (Hewn, the Wall
Street authority, contains these! sentences:
"President Wilson's statement of our peace aims may not bring
an immediate end jof the war. Nevertheless, it will both stimulate
and facilitate negotiation i0 that eiil, when the mind of (Jermany
realizes he inevitable and better understands the real objects of the
Allien. - '
"The strength of the industrials in the security markets is fre
quently striking. j " j
'There arc confident expectation regarding the export trade.
"Germany will make intense efforts to recover lost ground,
"but for obvious reasons will be handicapped for.a long periol; Ilerr
Tallin, one of her foremost' industrial leaders, having openly admit
ted this situation. ; . '
"Another factor,,. ... . . is our strong financial position.
" "So come peace or come war, the industrial outlook is considered
particularly favorable. i i f
::It is rumored that the next loan may not be so Iarge-as at
first expected, jheGovernment having all the funds necessary for
immediate requirements. .' .
VThe financial strength of the country is well illustrated in the
last national bank call, which showed resources of eighteen and a
half billions, or three billions more than a year previous.
"The monetary situation is such as should afr least permit the
financing of domestic enterprises to a. moderate degree."
A movement is proposed to ston

AN OREGON PIR
Above my brothers I towered in prido
' And stretched my arms to the sun , ;
Till the shadows danced as I flung them wide
r And I and freedom wire one.
;: I foved the flight of the wilful winds !
.'And the dash of the rain and snow ,
And the thrilling touch of Jujtering wings
With the westering sun aglow
.'An e'n,dles peace lay over the hills
' And. never a fear had I :
y- Ami-never a thought of the battling world
As the hour of my fate drew nigh
The torturing steel bit deep one day
.Hut I knew that it had lo be ,
For the whispering wind had brought me word
. . That ray country had need of me. ' C
I gave up my life for a thousand lives
v That I live for the .world, for you,
In every home where my body survives,
In the work of thenhops that I do.
I live in the hull of a stout new ship ' .
Where I guard its treasures of grain
And I help a bit to shelter our men V
Where the moving troops entrain. '
In a liberty plane I still fare on
' Where the allied fronts! advance
And I spend myself as our pilot does
To lighten the hearts of France.
Our wings are buoyed with immortal hope
As we witness to death! and crimo
In liberty Vcause tliat theUouls of men
:, May be free to the end of time. .

Money circulates fast and in largo
volumes during a war. The element
of financial misfortune lies largely
in the' fact that it is expended for
purposes of destruction and not for
upbuilding. , The money is not d
stroyed. It will be on band when
tho debris Is cleared away and the
work of reconstruction resumed. .-

that is not saying a great deal. The
Oregon prune, holding its own, is
worth talking about, for ft Is tho
best prune grown and cured in the

for the cantonments and campi,

the people to 'have enough to keep
themselves warm during the freezing
