Washington. Nov. 2fi The effect«
of the flood of void, deluging thia
nation since the outbreak of the
European war. federal finance ex-
perta are trying to find out. “Get
rid of the blamed stuff," one feder­
al expert adviaed recently. "It isn’t
doing ua any good and it may do
immense harm. We. aa a nation,
are just like an individual. When
we have just enough to keep us we
k«*ep stirring ail the time
If each
individual in the nation has a legacy
left him suddenly, there wouldn’t be
much stirring. That is our fix. We
have got more gold than we can
uw*
It mav lead to unwise loans
and reeultant speculation.
It is
keeping us hack now because bank­
ers, afraid of an overbalanced loan
system, are afraid to loan money."
This official agreed with some of
the big (tankers who, at a recent
conference, advised more extensive
foreign loans, with foreign bonds as
security instead of the American
collateral that has been demanded.
"We’ve got to do It some time,"
this expert said. "America has been
provincial in the matter of foreign
securities
We have invested our
money in American bonds and securi­
ties generally. Hut we have not ab­
sorbed much of Europe# holdings in
our securities. Now we've got to
aheorb some of theirs. It will help
our financial system in the end. and
it will help us to get rid of a surfeit
of gold that worries moat of us who
have stopped tn think where it may
end.”

With a view of
laving a foundation for legal pro­ I
ceedings to test the question wheth­ i
er or not the per cent tax limitation ;
amendment applies to the stale and
also the question as tn whether or
not further legislation Is required to
make it operate, the stale tax com­
mission today decided to certify to
the counties a state tax that will
cover ail the needs of the state
government.
The principal fear of American
bankers is that financiers, made
overconfident t>ecauee of the great
quantity of gold in this country, will
build too much on it. What are
regard«! as unsafe loans, or specula­
tive loans, are not those obtained
for ordinary speculation, but those
required for building factories and
elarting enterprises during the pros­
perity wave.
"Too manv factories would be as
bad as too much stock gambling."
this expert said. “We can't stand it.
We are manufacturing everything
in the United States now. If this
country, holding 27 per cent, of all
the gold in the world, is caught at
the »-nd of the war with too many
loana outstanding, there is fear of a
dangerous tightening of the money
market when the gold starts going
back to Europe—aa it will. If Euro­
pean manufacturers "come back"
they will turn the trade balance
against this country as it waa before
the war necessitated heavy exports
from America and negligible ex­
ports to it."
Another hanking expert of the
government believes thia country
can absorb moot of the gold it now
bolds.
"Our gold holdings are not as big '
aa a lot of people think." he said.'
"We held 24 per cent of the world’s |
gold before the war
We have in-
