Domestic and Foreign
Politics Dominate Business
York, Mar. 4. Domestic audi
politics dominate the entire
business situation, and these again are
chiefly influenced by war. This week
more "or less unsettlemeut prevailed
owinw to fears of a conflict between
the president and congress. President
Wilson very properly desired to ascer
tain the willingness or unwillingness
of the legislature to support him in his
negotiilions with Germany. In a for
eign situation of such extreme delicacy
and importance as now exists, the vniei
executive could not attord to nsK em
barrassment from a division of opinion
in congress arising from party plitics;
hence his bold challenge to the senate
which brought out, as expected, solid
support. In its foreign policy at this
critical period, the country must be in
unquestioned unit, and public opinion
should in unsparing terms condemn the
taking advantage of international sit
uitions for partisan purposes. The
consequences of such practices are far
too dangerous to permit their indul
gence. What will happen when the war is
over oannot be definitely measured.
In some quarters there will be violent
reactions as soon as retnobilization on
a peace basis begins, while in other
quarters there will bo a resumption of
activities now held in check. Infll-
tion resulting from a plethora of money
and lingo war purchases has not yet
run its course; and the higher prices go
to the more severe will be the reaction.
The true prevention or offset against
these contingencies is n clear apprecia
tion of tho inevitable; followed by
thorough urepirediiess for the event
when it arrives. Fortunately, our big
industrial leaders and our prominent
bankers are keenly alive to the econ
omic dancers of the times, and arc set
ting their course accordingly. The
turn, when it conies, will find them en
tirely readv to take advantige of new
conditions. Tn many eases current large
profits are being utilized to wipe out
indebtedness and to lower fixed
charges; old plants will be written off
or new ones created, thus leaving tue
ut .nn.i Hon-- ff f ter .
the wu than before it. The whole
country should begin at once conserv
ing its war profits, not spending waste
fully, not swelling dividends unwisely
and not too recklessly inflating se
curity values; but aiming to strengthen
itself for the world struggle for indus
trial supramacy which will come upon
us irresistibly when the war is over.
That strutcle will be won by the na
tion which can produce and distribute
the best goods at the lowest prices. Tiii
lppronching competition is absolutely
unavoidable; we are not yet prepared,
and the higher the level of prices and
costs maintained now, the more diffi
cult our readjustment nnd progress will
be later on, and the less our ultimate
ability to meet the strenuous rivalry
with Germany md Great Britain that
will beforced upon us. The. war has
not vet approached the end, nor have
its inflationary influences yet exhaust
ed themselves; bu preparedness for the
change that is coining should not tie
confided to industrial and financial
eiders, and conservation of our re
sources will be the policy of all pru
dent business men until the present
world chaos begins to clear and the new
tendencies become more definite.
Business Booming.
General business conditions at home
continue highly favorable. Bank clear
ings are satisfactory, running about 50
per cent aiietd of last year, the great
est activity being in states east of the
Alleghenies. No more striking evi
dence could be found of tho violent
changes which the great conflict across
the sea has wrought on this side of the
Atlantic than in our own steel trade,
which maintains unchecked its head
long and sensition.il upward movement
in prices and production. Many mills
are sold ahead into 1017 at unheard of
protits. The copper industry also shows
extreme nctivitv, closely paralleling the
course of steel in prices and p
Tl,n I.- .. t.nn nf nlhn n.al.l.
Petroleum is jlso rising to a sensational
level owing to the tremendous demand
both at home and abroad for motor pur
poses. In the (homical industry many
products have shown spectacular ad
vances as a result of scant supplies,
which can iisiullv be traced to the de
mands of war. Seedless to say the se
curities of these companies have made
IriTge advances and are common favor
ites in speculation.
There has been a wide revivil in new
enterprises. The new corporate issues
reported since January 1 aggregated
over Kn;,H0ii,000, compared with $.')!!, -000,0111)
last year, an increase of $105,
OIMl,inio the year before. These are un
usual gains ind some deduction must be
made for the transformation of capital;
but in the main the increase was chief
ly in new concerns in the steel, copper,
petrleum ami other industries directly
affected by the war. There was also a
1 irge increase in the number of new
shipping concerns, the total of which
organized since the war aggregated
over $10,000,000, also the total contem
plated in President Wilson's shipping
bill. American ship owners engaged in
foreign trade are making fabulous prof
its, freight rates in many instinces be
ing ten times what they were before
the war, while ships have risen two,
three ami four times their original val
ue, paying their cost in a few voyages.
Singularly enough, there was a decrease
in Janu iry and February of over $200,-
When a cold grips your system it is
convincing proof that your condition is

indeed to simply trust your strength to
throw it off, because neglected colds
have brought more serious sickness
than any other one thing, while weak

can securities from abroad.
Conditions More Normal.
Our foreign tr ide is gradually return
ing to more normal conditions through
a declining export movement and larg
er imports. The exports for January
amunted to $:t3j.r-'I.:io:, a decline of
$17,000,000 since December, compared;
with $2C7,801,:tTO a year ago. Both
weekly and monthly exports have lately
been "running upon a smiller scale,
chiefly owing to lessened shipments of
munitions, breadstuff's and other raw
materials. The largest gains have been
in exports of manufactured products.
Imports have lately shown gratifying
increases, the total for J inuary being
$184,000,000, an increase of $02,000,
000. This is the highest January on
record, and compares with $122,000,000
a year ago and $157,00(1,000 in 191.'!.
The increase in imports was mainly of
raw niiteirals and non-dutiable goods.
As a result the excess ot imports was1
less embarrassing, and tends to improve
the foreign exchange situation. Se
curities are still being returned on a
considerable scale from abroad, but the
movement is loss pronounced than a
few weeks lgo. Of course the influx
of British holdings must be expected
to continue as long as liquidation re
sulting from the war requires. The
selling, however, is under control of the
British government, which for reasons
of self-interest finds it imprudent to
overstrain the buying power of this
market. Many high grade American se
curities have been offered at unusual
prices, and American buvers find op
portunities for procuring high grade
home issues it attractive prices.
Our railroads continue pressed with
traffic, the handling of which is ham
pered by difficulty in finding ocean
tonnage for export trade. Kastern
trunk lines are still congested by the
large number of loaded cars awaiting,
release. Oener il trade is active, nnd a
largo distribution is reported in tex-
t i los, food products and general neees
sities. Some improvement n lie re-
ported in the labor outlook; indications
being that threatened disputes between
the enl and railroad l.iuor and tneir em
ployers will be ail justed without serious
Money continues ibundant at reas
onable rates despite expectations to the
contrary. The local bond market is
fairly active, and prices are well sus
tained by a oood investment demand.
More or less interest is excited concern
ing heavy impending foreign loans.
These are i factor which must be tak
en into consideration for some months
to come, and it is estimated that at
least five billions may be placed before
the summer months ami a considerable
portion of these applications is likely to
be allotted to the United States.
The future of the nnrket is involved
in much uncertainty. As stated above
homo conditions are entirely satisfac
tory and justify ample confidence, but
the possibilities of home politics and
the danger of foreign complications are
constantly present, and must continue
to remain the controlling factor in ill
financial operations, which ran be con
ducted only upon a dav to dav basis.

Take a Glass of Salts Before
Breakfast If Your Back
Hurts or Bladder
Bothers You
The American" men and women must
guard constantly against kidney trouble
because we eat too much and all our
food is rich. Our blood is filled with
uric acid which the kidnevs strive to
filter out, they weaken from overwork,
become sluggish; the diminutive tissues
clog and the result is kidney trouble,
bladder weakness ind it general decline
in health.
When your kidneys feel like lumps
of lead; your back hurts or the urine
is cloudy, full of sediment or you arc
obliged to seek relief two or three times
during the night; if you suffer with
sick headache or dizzy, nervous spells,
acid stomach, or you have rheumatism
when the weather is bad, get from your
pharmacist -about four ounces of '.tad
Salts; take a tablcspoonful in a glass
of water before breakfast for a few
days and your kidneys will then act
fine. This famous salts is made from
the acid of grapes aud lemon juice com
bined with litliia, ami has been use'i
for generations to flush and stimulate
clogged kidneys; to neutralize tho acids
in the urine so it no longer is a source
of irritution, thus ending bladder dis
orders. Jad Silts is inexpensive; cannot in
jure, makes a delightful effervescent
lithia-water beverage, and belongs in
every home, iiecause nobody can make
a mistake by having a good kidney
flushing any time.
