Extravagance Of National Ex
penditures Must Of Neces
sity Be Curbed Now.
New York, Jan. 23 Before long the
aew loan will have to be placed, the
proceeds .of the previous loan having
been exhausted some weeks ago and. the
government now being entirely depend
ent upon treasury certificates.. Condi
tions affecting floatation of govern
ment issues have so radically changed
that methods different from those of
previous loans will have to be adopt
ed. The war spirit, a very importan'
factor in other loan drives, has sub
sided, and former appeals to patriotism
by means of hurricane methods would
not now be effectual, especially in view
of the decline in all Liberty issues, ex
cept the 3Vjs. The next loan must de-
taxation. The government's- revenue
from excess profits is likely, however,
to be much smaller than a year ago.
So far as the iron trade is concerned,
the outlook from the normal point of
view is encouraging, a large domestic
trade being in view and a good export
trade as soon as shipping conditions
become more settled. The production of
copper has been curtailed somewhat,
but this, too, was part of the return to
more normal conditions. The labor nn. i
look is not satisfactory; the manifesto
of the Federation of Labor this week
causing some uneasiness. Soldiers are
returning in increasing numbers and
this tends to relieve the shortage re
The government's withdrawal from
control of business enterprises is pro
gressing as rapidly as expedient. The
Capital Issues Committee has decided
to suspend the preference necessarily
accorded to the forthcoming loan, sev-
pend more "upon a high sense of pub-!.eral in,Portant corporation issues are

TROUBLE CONTINUES IN
JOURNAL WANT ADS PAY toda
Madrid, Jan. 23. The Portugal
monarchial movement has assumed a
serious character, a Vigo dispatch re-
ests and upon meeting financial con
ditions upon' a business-like basis. It
has been inferred from the remarks of
Secretary Glass, who seems to have a
sound grasp of the situation, that the
coming loan will have to. pay 4 to 5
per cent to secure the necessary funds.
Money, like other articles and services,
will unavoidably command what it is
worth or go elsewhere. Capital is
scarce and dear, hence the fall in price
of nearly all our government issues
With conditions as they are, a short
term treasury note, say about three
years, bearing from 4c to 5 per cent
would undoubtedly be successful; for
financial institutions would readily take
large blocks, and such an offer would
undoubtedly bring out an immense in
vestment demand. There is no doubt
that such a loan could be easily financ
ed, and the country could secure the
necessary funds more easily, and with
less disturbance and cost than by the
boisterous and expensive methods so
necessary during the war.
In this connection there is another
matter which requires serious attention,
and that is the extravagant national
expenditures. No complaints in this di
rection were heard during the war,
but now that peace is restored there
should be vigorous retrenchment in all
departments at Washington. Many un
necessary bureaus are endeavoring to
make themselves permanent; many con
structive works that should be stopped
are still going, while hundrdes of mil
lions, if not billions, could be saved dur
ing the current year if there was only
sufficient effort in that direction. The
government has done much toward such
economy, but not enough, mainly be
cause public opinion has not yet been
sufficiently aroused to make itself felt.
ine contacting outiooK ot busi
ness induces a generally conservative
temper. Deflation-is the prevailing ten
dency; for commodity prices are too
high to permit further expansion and
the widespread conviction that prices
must recede naturally checks buying In
consequence, the present volume of busi
ness is probably below actual require
ments, though whon values become
more settled on a lower basis there is
no doubt of renewed activity. The de
cline Seems to be resisted by the stub
born facts that many raw materials
are scarce, that the output, of mines and
mills is often curtailed because" peace
orders have not yet filled the place of
war orders, and wngo adjustments are
impossible before a reduction in the
cost of living Some very significan
reductions have occurred in the textile
markets, both cottons and woolens be
ine weak. Several of the most staple
brands of cotton goods were reduced 25
to 30 per cent tins week, the deepest
cut on record. That such sensational
reductions should be made by the most
conservative business houses in the
trade meant that in their judgment
dras'ic action was the surest way of
getting back to normal. In these cases
war profits wore entirely eliminated.
and prices cut clean to tne oone. ii
further cuts are necessary they cannot
bo had without cheaper co'ton, lower
waees or a shutdown. Which of these
alternatives will be necessary is be
yond the knowledge of even experts.
That commodities are experiencing
world-wide reaction is shown by the
London "Economist" index number,
which stood at 6094 at the end of De
cember, a drop of 118 points in tho
month and the lowest rigure since
May. 1918. Textiles and minerals show
ed the heaviest declines, while articles
of food were either unchanged or slight
A decidedly conservative tone pro-
vails in the financial district. Security
values are not high because there was
no inflation in. this department; even
the war industrials refusing to respond
to such stimulus with a few notable ex
ceptions. Railroad shares have conspic
uously refused to sympathize with the
advances in commodities. Bonds have
generally doclined owing to the ad
vancing rates of interest, while public
utilities fell to an unusually low level
owing to the unpleasant fact that the
various commissions under whose con
trol they operate refused to allow them
to advance rates to conpensate for in
creased expenses. The starvation policy
set by the Interstate Commerce Com
mission seems to have been religiously
followed by state and municipal con
trol bodies with much the same effects,
that of threatening their financial ex
istence. The Interstate Commerce Com
miMinn havinz seen the error of its
ways; will the state and municipal bod
ies do likewise J
Tfie railroad situation is much con
fused, and interest centers chiefly upon
the question of government or private
ownership. At the moment the trend
of puhlie opinion is largely in favor of
the latter. What Washington will do,
however, is still uncertain Action upon
so important a subject can hardly be
expected during the present session of
congress which ends March 4, about six
weeks distant. A special session there
fore is among the probabilities, especial
ly as the tariff and other legislative
problems arising from the return of
neaee are pressing for attention Many
control, foreign exchange and the money
market, still remain, and normal free
dom should be restored as early as pos
sible. The time is not far distant when
the next loan, $5,000,000,000, will be
announced and the plans of our local
bankers are already well advanced in
tnis respect. A decision of importance
is the action of our government in
refusing further advances to our allies,
who will now come into the open mar
ket here iwhjen they desire to bor
row. Some considerable foreign issues
may be placed in this market at any
