J As so-called war supplies are consii
; tilting such an important factor in our'
I export trade situation at the present
1 time, there seems encouragement to
believe that an adequate plan for meas
urably restoring the international ex
change will soon' be consummated In
It is true that there has been some,
recrudescence of U.e strain in diplomat
ic circles, result!'. from the sinking of

which our own government has protest-.
ed. The Austrian ambassador, too, has
unfortunately complicated affairs by
his proposed campaign of interference
with lubor In iinluntrial plants or tue
Cnitcd States, and our government has
been constrained to request his recall.
Hut while theso are developments that
are to be deplored, any broad-minded
view suggest!) clearly that their im
portance during current times of ex
citement is very npt t bo overrated!
War between the United States an'd
any of the present warring nations is
niL'hlv improbable. INo one wants it
and there is no incentive of a practical
1111 til re to I) run' it about. Hut until tho
war is ended it is not improbable that
from tune to time there will recur
shocks resulting from the numerous
enuses that can appear so unexpectedly
at inopportune moments.. However, our
national executive has shown sucn a
commendable degree of calmness and
firmness in connection,' with this war
that it seems safe to presume that these
varireis shocks will continue to be hand
led In a satisfnetury way.
Tt seems fair to assume that wo have
not ynt experienced the full volume of
foreign liquidation'. During tho last two
months especially this feature of tho
stock market has been exceptionally
prominent. Kiuopean centers nro most
probably today as bare nf American
securities as they iiavo been at any
time in many years. This in itself is by
no means 11 depressing influence so far
ns our own market prospects are con
corned. It Is iu fact a fundamental in
fluence of strength. It means that the
American savings hnvo been steadily
investing in securities that were form
erly held nbrond. The flouting supplies
have nlmost completely been returned
tn this side nf the Atlantic, The move
ment begnn in earliest at the time of
the Halknn wars. There since have
been 110 repurchases of nny important
amounts. At. liie time 'of the offerini
of the latest Hritisli loan' tho privilege I
of converting consuls and the older warl
liriiiH into the new one called for the
accumulation of u very large amount of
ronily cash. It was necessary in order
to convert the older issues into the
new Ion 11 to subscribe to 'i'i hitter to aa
amount equal to that it was desired to
cunvert. Deuce Hritis'.i institutions ns
well us investors realized on their hold
ings of our securities us their quickest
asset, there are still large amounts ut
American sleeks nnd bonds held abroad.
Those comprise some of the very best
of securities listed on tho New York
Stock Kxehange. They are being eager
ly purchased bv American investors
whenever offered nt concessions and it
muy, I think, be taken for granted
that they- will continue In nctive de
maud. Thus there no longer is reason
to fear t'.ie old time bogie of Kuni;ca:i
liquidation. Tables luive completely
turned in the hist year or so. Instead
of tuning such liquidation it is being
welcomed 011 the ground that it will up
eruto effectively in steadying our in
tcr national exchanges.
rumnciiil circles are beginning tu
feel the influence of the grain crops,
which once more, considered as a whole,
are to establish a new high level for
American farm production. The wheat
yield will not be far from a round bil
lion luishels, a figure tint t has not
heretofore been approached. The 1914
crop of SUI.llOO.OOO bushels was itscll
an' unexampled one at that time. Com
if present pnrospects are confirmed has
hut once licen exceeded, namely, by the
.1,1-4,0(10,11110 tin. iliel crop of 1912. Oats
have a yield eoiuidorubly in excess of
earlier years. Our wheat crop will be
needed abroad and will be sold at pric
es based on the exigencies of war. There
will be cm repoudi?iglv large demand
tor other grain crops, Hence the grain
expori summon is one truit merits care
fill coiisidcr.ltio.i ns a favoring factor
in the stock exchange situation. The
iinlioiids are to have a large grain ton
nuge. There Is t.i fact already a drift
111 market circles from the wild speeu
mum 1 nut mnrKcii mo no caileil war
stocks back to the rnilioads and to
more eonsorvtttive trading as a whole.
There are also heavy yields of hay and
t'ruit. Nut lire has indeed smiled once
more upon the American farmer, whose
proiliu'ls litis year are estimated at
ubout f 1 0,000,000,000, and this in spite
or mo lower prices somctimci resulting
t rum tins sett same liouiitv. The oulv
notable exception Is cotton, which has
been adversely affected by t.ie war.
The situation is .not ns bad, however,
as is made to appear in political circles,
for the contraband pnidem has been
much clarified ami tile loss to German
and Aiistrinu consumption, amounting
to nearly 3,000,000 bales is compensated
tor ny the smuller crop and the mi
mouse quantities used in the mamifac
turtt of explosives. Traffic in the west
is already increasing owing to the grain
movement, but exMrta of the latter are
still under the Influence of the ex
change situntio.1 a.ul the certainty -wf

Industrial activity thus far-has been
confined chiefly to the iron trade which
is sustaining its reputation of being
either prince or pauper. Just sow it
is decidedly the former. Our stel
plants are now running at nearly full
capacity an'd pricc.i are ateadily rising.
tf xurM this ia aliuoit entirely Ju to
war orders, which nieaus tint such pro
perity is purely ephemeral unless it t
ditions. Of the latter tnere are some
sigri. Railroads and other big buyers
r uhminini arnunit with a View 0t
placing orders for necessary replenish
ment before prices rise too high. Per
haps it is fortunate that the domestic
demand is not urgent Bince otherwise
the industry would be so deluged wit.i
business as to induce unwholesome spei

One satisfactory symptom in the steei
trade is the rccemry in K'"
