Signs are not lacking: that Weston is
on the move in a modest war. Every
habitable boose is occupied, and more
bouses are so badly needed that invest

has more business bouses carrying
larger and better stocks than at any
time since the halcyon days of the
stage coach, when It was Pendleton's
only rival. Among- these k a beautiful
new store established by local capital,
but even prior to its advent the older
merchants had caught the spirit of
hustle and were reaching- out after new
business. If they cared to give out
the fignres it would probably be found
that a surprising volume of trade is
enjoyed by Weston's leading establish
ments. A better feeling is in the air,
snd one hears words of encouragement
on every fide. Were wheat and barley
moving freely the focal situation would
almost take on the aspect of a com-
ASPECTS OF TEC 116 UtM.
Arrangements have been completed
for the half-billion dollar loan to the
Allies. The underwriting banker get
the bonds st 96 cents and will re-sell
them' to the public at 03 cents. The
securities run five years at five percent
and are then convertible into four and
one-half percent bonds. - -? -
None of the money goes abroad.
The Allies merely wsnt an American
credit in order to pay for food supplies
and war munitions and to facilitate ex
change. In fact, the loan is expected
to prove a boon to the American farm
er by Henry Clews and other financial
writers. The Allies will now buy his
wheat without easting about for other
sources ol supply. Xbey will not
await the possible opening of the Dar
danelles and the release of Russian
wheat. In fact, the loan's stimulus
is already felt in rising markets.
Even the pro-German America farm
er need not bother about the ethics of
the transaction. Let him sell his wheat
when the price suits him, pay his obli
gations and rejoice. ' While the Allies
are incurring enormous war 'debts, the
security risk is the underwriting bank-

If every warring" European ' govern

ligations it will not be his funeral. No
such a governmental lapse was ever re
corded in history, but neither wss an
other such a costly snd colossal wsr.
The United States government had
nothing to do with this loan. It was
negotiated by private bankers, entire
ly within their right, with representa
tives of the Ententf Allies. " Germany
has no legitimate complaint to make.
Were she in a position to negotiate and
utilise' a similar loan, she would not
hesitate to do so.' " ' 1
Even so, the loan is s financial vic
tory for the Allies, as is their smash

tial victory. They are girding their
loins snd strengthening their thews In
men, munitions and money. It may
possibly mean the beginning of the end
