AN ENCOURAGING OUTLOOKj
Following lar esonie excerpts from the current
letter of Henry Clews, the Wall Street authority:
."The world is heroically struggling for a more settled and normal
condition, of affairs. Its chief obstacle is a scarcity of many neces
sities, together with the greatly overstrained nervous condition of
the war-torn nations. While these abnormal conditions continue,
social and political disorder must be expected and accepted as the
natural consequences of the great upheaval.; The difficulties are
innumerable, yet they are gradually and surely being overcome.
Time and work Combined accomplish wonders, and there is every
reason, to believe that a year hence will witnes? a long step taken
toward the new normal. No serious delays in the peace program
have tHus far happened, and none seem likely, to occur. Germany
will sign the pact, despite characteristic protests, and there is good
reason to hope that Mr. Wilson, will very soon return to his press
ing duties on this side of the water. The peace treaty the greatest
document in history, cannot attain perfection,; and more or less dis
satisfaction is inevitable ; but peace has already been established on
a oasis or strength and justice that seemed very far away only a
year ago when the tide began to turn against . the Germans.
"Congress has settled down to. work, and definite "results may
be expected before long; that is if the political game, which may
become very strenuous, does t ot interfere. j ; , -
. ."Abroad there are signs of the radical elements approaching ex
haustion; and there is no need"Foi serious coneern.regarding the ex
tremists. in this country. , ' - -

This w illustrated by an extraordinary increase in the number and
fcuurof new incorporations; the total reported for May being 900
with a capitalization ot nearly $750,000,000.; This is the largest total
on record, except when the United States Steel Corporation was
created, m rebruary, 1901. It was also $233,000,000 larger than the

Dr. Doaey said at the Willamette
University graduating exercises yes
terday that a $500 subscription to
wards tha new Lausaane Hall was
made at midnight on Tuesday. He
added that this fact was told with
a view to giving notice that sucli
subscriptions would be . gladly re
ceived morning, afternoon or even
ting, or at midnight, or even 2 o'clock
or later in any night. With the aew
spirit of Old Willamette, it is evident
that the balance of the funds to com
plete the beautiful new $60,000 Lau
sanne Hall, and to furnish it. will be
forthcoming and that there will b

THE IIANKFU XATIOX-'
following are some paragraphs
from the current weekly financial
retter rot Hen:y Clews, the Wall
Street authority: ,
"The foreign exchange situation
continues to excite much interest
j owiag to the sbnormal disparity be
tween exports and imports.
. "The necessities of Europe are ex
treme, particularly In respect to
fod. ":! - ' l j
"Mieanwhlle Europe has neither
good nor gold with which to pay,
and enormous foreign debts to the
United States are piling up in con
sequence. i:i . ' , ' . " - i ; '
"The go!d import movement ha
been, renewed, Great Britain having
shipped about $12,000,000 via Can
ada, with more to com.
"There is a' possibility that fur
ther amounts j of foreign owned sew
cnrities may come upon this market,"
though for obvious ; reasons nothing
very important in this direction is
anticipated. : ,.' ; ..'
"Sterling hates recovered some
what and francs wre steadier, but
Italian, lire continue' very unsettled.
"Some f5ea of the great dispar
ity between the exports and Imports
with these countries is shown in the
following figures: 1 - I i i,
"During the first ten months or
the fiscal year our exports to Italy
have been $4l7,OJ0.6oO. our Imports
"To France our exports were
$803,000,000, our Imports $45,000.-
ooo. "v i-T " I s . t
"To Belgium aur exports have
been $250,000,000, our Imports only
a little over $100,000. f
"To Great Britain our exports
have been $1,678.000,000,' our im
ports $123,000,000. ' ;
"No wonder the foreign exchanges
are deranged,! and the . problem or
financing cur debtors 13 acute."
At the outbieak of the war, Great
Britain was the banker nation, and
London was the financial capital cf
the world. 1 " '
Now the United States Is the
banker nation and, with f oresight
ed statesmanship ; constantly on
guard at Washington, our country
will maintain that position.
The dollar Is now; the measure of
the worlds financial affairs, and it
should remain so- with nntold ben
efits to the profits and. the prestige
of our people; and, let us hope, with
benefits to the whole world; for
Americans having taken the lead
in good works internationally thov
should and nn doubt will maintain
that I3ader8hip. i :
IIOllKXZOLI.KItX tJKTH NO ROYAL
Since Kaiser Wilhelm's downfall
It is notable that not one of his roy
al colleagues has spoken a word in
his defense. Perhaps this is largely
due to policy, to a silence imposed
by constitutional governments; but
still we are strongly inclined to the
opinion that there is no great per
sonal sympathy for the former em
peror in the inner circles of royalty.
Much is now coming to light to
show that Wiltelm was overbearing
and insulting to other sovereigns and
made himself an object of contempt
at all the leaIIi.g oarts of Eu:ope,
some of which he had been distinct
ly warned cgainst visiting. His un
de. the late King Edward Ml, is
known to have hatd him most tr-
jdially. His hatred was both per
sonal and political. It is generally
believed that King George Enter
tains for his cousin the same feel
ings that King Fdward did.
Since the murder of the former
cxar of Russia by the Bolshevik al
lies of the former kaiser it is hard to
see how the royal families of Europe
can look upon Wllhelm except as a
direct accessory to that brutal crimj
and as a traitor to their clasa. ,

Reed 'were also among those who
opposed thi woman suffrage amend
