this county of employing the most er-

New York, Sept. IS. Tliat the allied
commission and big New York finan
ciers are deadlocked over their gigan
tic loan proposal was the belief, this
afternoon in many financial quarters.
This view wns strengthened by the
fact that the British ambassador, Sir
Cecil Spring Rice, conforrcd during the
day with Lord Reading of the commis
sion, at tho Biltiuore hotel, presumably
arranging a vital move iu connection
with the loan. It was assumed by
many that tho nmbnssador's aid was
sought iu breaking the deadlock and
reaching some compromise plan.
Jiimcs ,). Hill, railroad magnate, and
Robert Bucon, former partner of J. 1'.
Morgan, were among the bankers who
today visited the commissioners. Upon
leaving, Bacon said ho was hopeful for
success of the loan.
Tho difficulty was not yet at a ser
ious stage, but. Wall Street took a some
what pessimistic view.
The trouble centered about tho ques
tion: Shall tho loan be used for the
purchase of munitions?
The allied commissioners say it cer
tainly must be. There comes tho split.
.Some bunkers, concurred, but others
look n firm stand that tho money
should constitute a credit with which
Die allies could buy American wheat,
meal, ami cotton.
Thou, loo, the subject of interest
threatened further to widen the in
cipient breach. The concensus of opin
ion wa that the allies are holding out
for a rate not above fivo percent, with
out tho underwriting fees which at
ono half of ono percent would mean
that .). P. Morgan and others would put
a comfortable slice of change into their
That there would be a final breaking
off of negotiations seemed doubtful.
But, Wall Street, at least, regarded tho
negotiations as at a "ticklish" stage.
In some quurters, however, the belief
was expressed today that compromise
must bo reached by early next week or
there will be no loan.
London Is Confident.
