more will go out today, the stock market
has been recovering. There was, and Is
a substantial cause of the difficulty 1n the
fact that the exports of products have
been too small to meet the greatly in
creased Imports of merdnandt'se. The col-
la'Pe of Kaffir speculation abroad has
forced many to realize on Americans held

larger than ever before, and the con tin
