Johnson is going to have his work
cut out for him in Hinoothing over some

on excellent authority. Several club

in the league and make n one, two or

The first neck in September finds
three teams in the American league still

ni'd Chicago.. Kadi of these teams has
been reinforced by recognized stars this
season, bought 'nun other American
league clubs, nith tii result tli.it they

GETS HARD ASSIGNMENT
TOLD TO BOAST TEBEAU
Jack Kearney, a St. Louis uo
taiile, tells thin one:
One atrcrnoon during the old
days of b:r:ebull 1'ut Tebeau
uml his Spidtra came to town.
Patsy was in an extremely war
like moud the first day and lie
feared the umpire after every
second di'cisiija. 1'ut, us the old
tans know, had quite an ex
tensive and profit no vuca bil
iary and that day in particular
he called to iiis tongue some of
the most, frightful-hounding
speeches that ever have echoed
across a basebc.li diamond.
I was in the newspaper game
then and wu'i covering tho
game. It so happened that my
managing edilor. u testy old fel
lnw, who nbhori'i'il profanity,
was in the audience.
"Tiio next day the chief sent
" 'You heard llebeau's lang
uage didn't vou' demanded tho

tive. 'Well, iir,' thundered the boss,
'that suit of thing must stop. I
want you to go to Tebeau 's ho
tel and tell him firmly and em
phatically tlmt he can 'f use that
sort of talk in this city, and
that yuu have mv orders, if he
refuses to cut it, In roast him in
Hie columns of this paper. I'll
show this Tebeau that he can't
bluff me.' "
Kearney refuses ' to say
whether he covered that as
signment, but the belling is ten
to one he didn 't.

Finances Decidedly Relieved
By Action of Germany
New Yurk, Sept. 4. A decided fuse
of rcifc-f developed in financial circles
when it became kuowu that Germany
wa ready to conduct its submarine
w!irfarft noon the linen reouested b the
I'liitod Statea government. This
:ome eoncessiou on the part or crer
many was nuturally gratifying to Amer
ican sentiment; and has, it is hoped per
maeutly removed all iwrious friction be
tween the two countries. Details may
require time for adjustment, but if the
present spirit of conciliation is pre
served on both aides, all fear of a
serious rupture, or becoming involved
in the war, will disappear. As a danger
poiut, therefore, the " Lusituni.v" and
the "Arabic" incidents may be con
sidered as safely passed.
Confidence in home business annus
i everywhere gaining, and in the best
banking circles there is uivcrsai expec
tation ai a pood fall trade. Things in
general am.car to be ou the mend.
Trade and traffic are still below norm
al, but the tide is rising. The banking
situation in the United States was prob
ably never sounder or more satisfactory
than at toe present moment. 1 In
new banking system is working smooth
ly; and the danger in this part of our
economic, machinery is more n the di
rection of over-expansion than in con
traction. Aieordine to a recent state
ment by the Comptroller of the Cur
rency, the banks of the United States
have it in their power to expand loans
fully $11,000,000,000. The present har
vest equals and is even exceeding uli
expectations as to quantity. Wheat,
corn and oats promise to surpass the
oarlier Government estimates; and the
only drawback in the grain outlook is
tue reported injury to wheat from ex
ceaaive moisture, also the certainty ol
a rush. cf wheat into European markets
when the Dardanelles are, opened.
Wheat and oats .will be record crops
and com uearlv so. The cotton out
look is, of course, unsatisfactory. Whili
the situation has been changed by the
placing of cotton ou the contraband j
list, it will not materially affect ex-and,
ports since fhipmeuts to Germany had
previously been almost suspended. Theil.v weakened, and our own permanently
yield this year will uailoubteilly tall i
considerably below last year's' crop,!
which will offset the loss of exports of .
ubout 3,000,000 bales to Germany and
Austria, t ortunatelv. tliere will be no

During the latter half of the week

causes of these abnormal rates do nat
need explanation. That even greater
uneasiness docs not exist, is due to the
fact that a nuinb.'r of eminent British
bankers are on the way here for t.ie
purpose of making an early adjustment
The rush of enormous war contracts
continues, and provision for their fin
ancing is a ver,- ur.-'cnt necessity. The
excess of exports over imports, which
amounted to $1,000,000,000 for the
year, ending June 30th, may run as high
lis $L',000,uoo,000 when the calendar
year ending December 31st is reached
The onlv methods ot settlement are
either a return of American securities,
imports of gold, or tiie placing of a
regular government iom by the British
government. Tho best method to adopt
is to issue u short term loau, say tor
two, live, seven and ten-year periods,
which would b3 thj most likely to suc
ceed. The shorter term issues could be,
I think, placid on a 4!;. per cent basis,
while the longer d' tes would require a
higher rate, s.vy 5 per cent; all re
deemable in gold and to be freo from
tr.xation. How t.'ie tverage American
investor would t.".ko such a security
is somewiiat problematical, but many
of our fiau-ici'l iiinittitlons and our
big capitalists would undoubtedly sub
scribe freely now taut the danger of
war with Germany is passed. British
credit has not yet been seriously
drained, and serins abundantly able to
I'u'.anco the var through to the end. Y'et
the (l:ili(r,r Of n"ni-i.rru-ili,tn tkla ma.L-nt
with excessive foreign obligations is not
to be overlooked.
The coming of a contingent of Lou
don's ablest bankers to adjust the ex
change situation adds immensely to the
prestige ot New York as a financial
center. It is an epech-meking event;
wbilo London's pre-eminence can-
not be questioned, it ha.; been temuorar-
strengthened by tnese dcvelopmets.

One Who Shows. No Favor.
A merciless judge is Father Time,
Before him the weak and the wanting
go to the wall. Only the truth can
stand. For years the following state
ment from a bal?m residont has with
stood this sternest of all tests.
A, J. Wood, 733 North Front street,
Salem, says: ' ' Kidney complaint got so
bad in my case that I knew I would
have to check it or suffer more serious
results. Just after getting up in tho
morning, the complaint was worse. I
had heard of Doan's Kidney Pills doing
good work in- similar cases. I began
using them. In a Bhort time I was free
from kidney complaint. I have never
hud a sign of kidney complaint since."
A Permanent Cure. ,
More than six years later, Mr. Wood
said: "I have never had a return symp
tom of kidney complaint since Doan's
Kidney Pills cured me. I willingly con
firm my former endorsement of this
