A number of 1 succeeded by betterment io home con ', "epi. 11 ix,;. cm h i... Cor,, are some iinoortnnt features in tho geueral fin ancinl situation suggest improvement in sentiment. One is the progress already evident towards recovery in the sterling exchange situation, thus removing, in a corresponding tiegrce, me return iu centive for liquidation by foreign hold ers of American securities. The arrival at this center of tho able representati ves of the British and French Treasur- .... .i i...t,; i,,t..rai miloiilitedlv opens the door for improvement of a permanent character. Their object is to arrange for a substantial credit in I this country on acceptable terms by , mo., ,.f uliii.h imri'linMHfl nf sui,olies may be paid for as deliveries are made.! 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 this directum. It is true that there has been some, recrudescence of U.e strain in diplomat ic circles, result!'. from the sinking of 1. IL..i nn.lna n r ,i . I t tl a OriQtaf 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 a lug rush of Kussinu grain wncni (he IVniaiiellcs Mr opened. 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 nation ni "ore or less r" "'r" , One satisfactory symptom in the steei trade is the rccemry in K'" port trade.

One substantial proof of business im provement is found in hank clearings. The total for all cities in August was $14,200,000,000, against $9,9Uu,0OO,OU0 '' "' 'asi year an n.vc r must of course be attributed to activity on the stock exchangp, which was closed a year ago.

Our foreign trade is still running on abnormal lines heavy exports and small imports but the exchange situ ation is being somewhat relieved by the liberal arrival of gold aiil securities, es timated at about $15,000,000 during the lust few weeks.
