The A&use of Credit
FOR the first half of the year the records of R. G. Dun
& Co. show 13,771 mercantile defaults, with liabilities
totaling $337,089,083. These are staggering figures. While
the increase may be attributed to prevailing bad conditions
in business, that does not folly explain Che cause of such
failure. The same six months in 1929 showed 12,172 failures.
The total liabilities were much less, being only $232,128,936.
But for either year the totals seem overwhelming.
These figures show not only the normal misfdrtunes of
business, but appalling lack of business judgment both on
the part of those engaging in business and those extending
credit to them. Such a volume of business casualties seem
altogether too large even for this country. It shows-genuine
commercial maladjustment that 13,771 should fail even in
a bad year, and 12,172 in a reputedly prosperous era.
What were the defects? The causes which many investi
gations have borne out are usually poor management or in
adequate capital. Individuals start in business improperly
equipped either in training or financial backing. And they
seem to get credit easily. Wholesale houses crowd their
goods on them; landlords are eager to rent them space.
They start with high hopes; then the bills fall due. Often
the proprietor has taken too much out of the till for his
own salary to have enough left for meeting invoices for
goods, rent and overhead expenses. He staggers along a
few months and then goes out of business. The consequence
i3 disastrous both for himself and for his creditors.
We believe wholesale houses and sometinx s though not
often, banks share a lot of the responsibility for these de
faults. They encourage the abuse of credit by extending
credit too freely to those who really cannot use credit right.
We do not mean to discourage the launching of businesses,
though in settled cities this should be done only after care
ful survey of the field and of one's resources. We do not
mean that only those should be encouraged to enter busi
ness who give reasonable promise of success. The loss from
these failures falls on the creditors eventually, and in the
meantime established businesses have suffered from the
increased and unjustified competition.
The figures that we have quoted do not include indi
vidual nor financial failures, but for commercial and manu
facturing lines including agents and brokers. There is one
interesting feature of the Dun summary of the retail trade
division: the grocery classification shows fewer failures
than in previous years. This was reported for the month of
Jime of 1930 as compared with June of 1929 and 1928. For
about a year grocery insolvencies have been declining. This
would seem to indicate that the retail grocery situation is
becoming more stabilized and the mortality induced by the
invasion of the chain grocery has largely spent itself. This
would seem to be borne out by the present pause in expan
sion of the grocery chains, and the declines in some of their
The National Association of Credit Men has done much
toward the study of credit. But its work has only begun.
Such a record of mercantile insolvencies as reported for the
six months this year shows that all too many of our bus
inesses rest on the insecure foundation of too much credit.
A Woman with Money
RICH women are often rather peculiar. There was Hettie
Green whose eccentricities supplied manv a reporter
with an interesting story. The other day a rich New York
woman died, Mrs. Rebecca Swope, granddaughter of John G.
Mendel, who like John Jacob Astor, his contemporary, put
the profits of his fur business in real estate. Mrs. Swope
was worth fifty millions or so and lived with her two sis
ters, one of whom died in 1929. She was the only one of the
trio who went out, and that was very rare. They all lived in
a great brick mansion which survives among the tall bus
iness blocks at Fifth Avenue and 39th street, now the heart
of the retail section. The women kept up the tradition of
their grandfather never to sell any land which they acquired.
The press report gives more information about the fam
ily: "The brick mansion, set among department stores, has been
for many years one of the unusual sights of the city. Beside it is a
apacioua yard, as city yards go, fenced off from Fifth avenue by a
high bar bed-wire topped wall.

apt te ran across the snake that
is dangerous. When the water
dries In the hills and mountains
they come down Into the low
lands for water and food.
Recent researches made at
Washington university in ST.
Louis, seem to show that snake
venom is the enly poison In the
world known to kill by atfectlna
all the body at once.
First Aid Ttreatmeat
In cases of snake bite, the pur
nose of any sort of iocal treat
ment which may be applied, is to
prevent the poison from getting
into the general blood susoly. If
not prevented from doing so the
poison is carried to every part of
the body by the blood stream.
It the foot or band nas Dee-n
bitten, a ligature of some sort
should be tied tightly around tha
the limb, being careful to bare it
above the wound, or between the
wound and the heart. A torn strip
of shirt or handkerchief may be
used. Or a string, ahoe lace, neck
tie, a piece of rope, a wire, a piece
of grapevine or a flexible switch,
is good for the purpose. Whatever
yon use. tie it firmly, after which
a stick should be inserted under
the ligature and tightly twisted.
This stops the circulation of the
blood from the wounded limb.
Then suck out the poison and
wash the wound with soap and
water if available. No harm will
come from sucking the wound if
the mouth is healthy and without
broken tissues. If access can be
had to permanganate of potash
crystals, these should be rubbed
into the wound.
Keep the patient warm and ad
minister small quantities of cof
fee until the doctor arrives.
Various aerunu are Used for
snake bite, but these should only
be used by a doctor, mey may
be had by telegraphing the New
York Zoological garden, or pos
sibly gotten through your local
board of health.
In the northern and eastern por
tions of the United States, snake
bites are rarely fatal. If you
should happen to be bitten by a
snake, do not worry yourself into
a fever or fear. Quick action with
the local treatment immediately on
being bitten, together with tho use
of a serum, make it probable you
will have little trouble.

the Oregon conference historical
The ship Lausanne carried 32
adults and 19 children. This May
flower of the Pacific went to sea
from the harbor of New York
October 2th, 1839. (The reader
should fix thia date in his mind
for it la Incorrectly given in sev
eral histories, ranging in their
statements from the 6th to
around the 20th.) "It was the
greatest exodus ever sailing from
an eastern port to any coast,"
says the history of the Catholic
church of Oregon. Bishop
Blanchet said: "No missionaries
were ever dispatched to repre
sent the various sects in any
land Tinder more favorable aus
pices than were the ladies and
gentlemen belonging to the Meth
odist Episcopal church amidst the
wilds of Oregon."
This is certainly high author
ity. They represented in the con
tributions ot funds to the mis
sionary society of their church
the adherents of every other
church then known in America,
and of many who belong to one
church. The government of the
United States, from the secret
funds of the president, contrib
uted about 1 100 each for all the
members of the expedition, in
cluding the women and children.
This "great reinforcement," as it
was called, was the direct result
of the work of Jason Lee, per
formed in the Interval after his
arrival at the site ot Kansas City,
September 1. 1838, following his

was no street. The space be
tween the mills and the first
dwelling became Broadway when
that part of the town that was
named Salem, 10 years later (In
18S0), was platted. At first the
settlement, after Chemeketa, the
name of the Indian camp, was
called "The Mills," and the first
postoffice was "The Mills." Then
it was called "The Institute;" the
government mail carrying con
tract waa to "The Institute."
Then came the name of Salem,
suggested by David Leslie.
In 190t, when Atwood wrote
"The Conquerors," he was allow

from Mrs. Sarah R. Beggs, the
