| Passing Impressions of Finance
I By H. L. Bennet
Oold In a substantial amount Keeps
going out of the country when It Is
needed badly at home. Economists
who give careful study to the passage
of gold from one country to another
do not look upon the exportation of
yellow metal by any means at the
present Juncture as a sign of financial
health. Our largest bankers share in
this view for they consider It a con
clusive sign of our trade prostration.
There is no sentiment about money, it
has no heart, no brains nor devotion;
like the man without a country, it has
no patriotism nor worries about any
political problems; it hurries to where
It is most wanted; flies to the arms of
those willing to pay the highest for
Bills, large international bills against
us are calling for our gold. The bal
ance of trade is just now against us;
the country is buying more from her
sister nations than they are purchas
ing from her. Our exports have de
creased perceptibly, whereas our im
ports, due to the recent drastic revis
ion in tariff duties have in proportion
swelled materially. Add to this the
payments due on some large corpora
tion short time loans made in Europe,
the heavy payments in interest and in
dividends disbursed around July on
our securities held by foreign investors
and the letters of credit cashed abroad
by thousands of Americans who spend
their vacations touring the continent
or at the many health spas, and you
have the explanation for the flight of
After all, the balance of trade as it
is known, is but in a larger sense
bookkeeping nations wherein the
creditor nations call for the payments
of the balances due them from the
debtor nations in gold, the Interna
tional standard of values. The near
approach of our harvest when the
country will be sending abroad a plen
tiful supply of grain and foodstuffs no
doubt will bring us some relief from
the drain of our gold and by that time
perchance there may occur a revival
in our business in exporting consider
able merchandise. This, of course,
would rapidly throw the balance of
trade again' in our favor and bring
back our gold. The wish Is father to
the thought in the minds of most
merchants and manufacturers.
I Psychological is the defination given
Iby President Wilson of the trade de
pression. Would that it were really
so. Mastery of grey matter over the
flesh is possible but grey matter can
not produce profits if the material to
make it is not there. And it is this
supernatural power which the Presi
dent credits our merchants with pos
sessing. Fortunate is it that our Pres
ident is inexperienced in business, for
tunate I say, for him as otherwise he
would hardly venture to give so flimsy
a reason for our industrial depression.
But for business it is more than un
fortunate that our chief executive has
never had to scratch his head and
solve the problem of meeting a big
pay roll, for he would see material
conditions in a different light and go
about in a more practicable way to
remedy the existing depression for ha
would then quickly realize the trouble
is real and not psychological.
No one at Washington seems to
have a spark of kindness in his heart
for the business man. From the con
sideration of the saturnalia of legisla
tion which has seemi ly but the one
purpose, the regulation of business, it
would appear to all those unfamiliar
with the hustle and bustle with which
all transactions are carried on in our
country, that our business men are a
dangerous lot; men who need care-1

One of the sick railroads is about
ready to emerge from the hospital;
the potient is the Rock Island for
which this week its financial doctors
have ajj eed upon a reorganization
plan. Ine two holding companies are
entirely done away with. It was about
time for there was nothing ever thnt
originated from the mind of men bent
upon fooling the American people
possessing such clownish such clown
ish and deformed llniaments as thoje
two sickly shells in which the old
Rock Island was incased. If they at
any time had anything behind them
they could never be called more than
wind, water and consummate greed.
Both the collateral bond holders and
the preferred and common stockhold
ers of the holding company will have
to contribute cash for which they are
to receive new preferred and common
stock of the old railroad. In this way
it is anticipated $30,000,000 will be
raised. The week just closed has
brought forth evidence of a revival in
activity In public service bonds and
bankers quick to discern such a sign
are making ready to float a number of
such issues. Before the month closes
at least two large bond offerings will
be made; ine of $12,500,000 of first
mortgage 5 per cent, bonds of the
North Western Elevated, a part of the
Chicago Elevated Railroad system and
which will be partly secured by $30,-
000,000 of that company's notes. The
other issue will be $2,000,000 long
term 5 per cent, bonds of the Virginia
Power Company, a public service com
pany though comparatively new has
made rapid prgress in its territory.
The Commonwealth Power Railway
and Light is also a guarantor for a
$5,000,000 issue of Michigan Railways
five year gold notes. If the three of
ferings meet with success they will be
followed by other offerings.
The losses sustained by the Federal
Light and Traction Company from the
fire at Hot Springs which nearly wiped
out the local company have been
about overcome and the company un
der a stronger disrectorate and "man
agement is again making good prog
ress. The annual report of the Mid
dle West Utilities Company, one of
the enterprises in which Samuel In
sull is dominant, made a good show
ing. The earnings almost doubled in
the twelve months.
| As for the stock market it has not
been in years as listless as during the
past week. The daily trading has
not exceeded a hundred thousand
shares and on some days fell below
that figure. Small are the pickings
of the one thousand stock exchange
members. For the year up to the
present the sales have shrunk nearly
13,000,000 shares. if expressed in
commissions brokers have lost, it runs
close to $2,000,000. Mind you, this
comparison is made against 1913 it
self a dull year. Anu yet the mem
bers of the Stock Exchange are not
dispairing of better days Their pa
tience is that of Job.

Blood Stains Are Found in Her
Apartments and Arrest Is
Ordered by Coroner
Stamford, Conn., June 24.—Waldo
R. Ballou, a well known citizen and
former member of the city council,
died to-day at a local hospital of a
fracture of the skull. Mrs. Helen M.
Angle a divorced woman, with whom
he was acquainted, iB under arrest by
order of the coroner, pending inves
tigation of the death.

that BaDou was in her apartments
last night but said they had no quar
lv^CC7dir!f t0 the polioe bl°od stains
were found on the carpet and furni
ture in the woman's apartments, and
Ballou s straw hat was discovered in
a clothes chest, crushed and blood
stained. Blood stains on garments
belonging to Mrs. Angle were also
found, the police say, as well as foot
prints on the stairway which tended
to indicate that a large woman had
walked up or"down it in stocking feet
A bood soaked cloth was found on
the roof of a building adjoining Mrs.
Angle's apartments and beneath her
After telling several conflicting stor
ies Mrs. Angle about noon said she
was anxious to appear before the
coroner and give the truth about the
death. Her story as she said she ex
pected to tell it at the inquest, she
then gave to Chief of Police Brennan,
substantially as follows:
"I had nothing to do with Waldo's
death. It was entirely an accident.
He had been drinking and when he
left my apartments he was under the
influence of liquor. He stumbled and
fell down stairs. I heard him fall.
He lay at the bottom and I hurried
down to him. I shook him and spoke
to him, but he appeared to be dead.
Blood was trickling from his ears. I
was in a panic and did not know whAt
to do, I thought of notifying the po
lice and then it flashed through my
mind that I might be compromised if
I did 80. I dreaded the notoriety I
knew would follow. Something
seemed to Impel me to pick up Waldo
and carry him out on the sidewalk.
I took him in my arms, opened the
lobby door, looked out, saw no one
and hurried out with him. I drop
ped him on the sidewalk and ran
back locking the inner lobby door.
Then T got a cloth and tried to wipe
up the bloodstains. I took Waldo's
hat and with some of my own cloth
ing which had become bloodstained
thrust it into my clothes chest. Then
1 wished myself, put on a bath robe
and lay down. My only reason for
doing this was to escape the notoriety
that would follow. I realize now thut
I made a great mistake."
The police have learned that Ballou i
