WHAT AMERICANS OWE BRITISH
Something of a stir was created in American
financial centers by the publication yesterday of
the statement made by David Llovd-George, Chan
cellor of the Exchequer, in the British House of
Commons, that the United States owes Great Brit
ain $5,000,000,000, with the implication that the
inability of Great Britain to collect this debt has
tied up British business, caused a financial dead
lock and placed a handicap on Great Britain in the
matter of meeting the expenses of the war.
Of course it must be assumed that in referring to
a $5,000,000,000 debt of various American individ
uals or corporations to British subjects, Lloyd-
George had in mind chiefly the amount of British
capital invested in American securities.
The closing of the American stock exchanges,
along with those of the rest of the world, at the
start of the European jvar, of course, prevented
British security holders from selling their Amer
ican holdings and realizing cash on them; but it
must be borne in mind that had not the American
exchanges closed there would Certainly have been
a tremendous crash in securities values due to the
unloading by the British of their securities at any
cash figure they could get for them.
The dumping of $4,000,000,000 or $5,000,000,000
of British-held American securities, along with bil
lions of American securities held by investors in
other parts of Europe, as would have occurred had
the American exchanges not been closed promptly,
would have meant tremendous losses not only to
Americans but to the foreign holders of American
securities as well.
The protection to securities values, given by the
action of the American stock exchanges in closing
down, was therefore to the benefit of foreign hold
ers of American securities as well as to the benefit
of American investors, and so Lloyd-George has no
real cause for complaint at the inability of British
ers to liquidate their American holdings, if that was
what he was driving at.
/ THE FORTUNATE FAT PERSONS
* Hardly anybody objects to stoutness of body
except the fat persons themselves. Most lean per
sons are strongly in favor of it, and long for it as
applying to their own frames, even in moderation.
If stout persons would know how most of their thin
associates envy them, they might be more apprecia
tive of their corpulency.
An actress, who knows from experience, advises
stout persons not to worry, for tiiey cannot help
themselves, but rather to smile.
That does not mean "grin and bear it!" Pat
persons should smile, not despite their stoutness
but because of it. Most of them do one or the
other; it Is hard sometimes to tell which.
That this fortunate class of persons is in general
a class of smilers is a well known fact. They need
to beam with their spacious countenances. If they
do not do it, nobody else will feel like attempting
it. Lean persons do not often break into smiles
except as they catch the contagion from their good
Aside from all these considerations, it is well to
call to mind the old German maxim: '"Fat gives
RESUMPTION OF BOND SALES ON CHANGE
The determination of the governors of the New
York Stock Exchange to reopen to-day that great
est securities market of the country for the sale of
HARRISBURG STAR-INDEPENDENT, SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 28, 1914.
bonds under sane restrictions, for the first time
sinoe the Exchange was closed at the outbreak of
the European war, may be regarded as a sort of
experiment or "feeler" put out to see how the
wind is blowing in the great Wall Street financial
There undoubtedly has been a revival of confi
dence among investors since the panicky days when
the European hostilities upset the financial world
and caused the securities markets of this country
generally to close to prevent an unloading of for
eign-held stocks and bonds which undoubtedly
would have resulted in securities prices going to
smash in this country with resultant tremendous
losses'to American investors.
While, of course, financial conditions have not
reached the normal state of before the outbreak of
the European war, the decision of the Stock Ex
change authorities in reopening the bond depart
ment under restrictions designed to provide safe
guards against precipitate liquidation from abroad,
is in line with the sane and conservative course that
has been followed consistently by the Exchange's
governors since the war started.
The resumption of systematic dealings in bonds
is justified by the course prices of securities have
taken in recent private sales in this country and in
sales made on the New York Curb market, and it
paves the way for the gradual removal of restric
tions from trading in other securities and for the
consequent revival of great business enterprises de
pendent upon the floating of loans.
ODD THINGS IN THE WAR
When war is being waged strange things some
times occur, —things that are queer and inconsist
ent. These occurrences receive incidental mention
in the columns of the newspapers and the maga
zines, and may of themselves be of little or no
import, yet they are interesting.
French and German soldiers recently established
a postoffiee near their firing lines, we are told in
the dispatches, where they exchange mail. The
soldiers of the hostile armies gather there, if we
may believe reports, and get their newspapers and
letters as though they were not engaged the rest of
the time in killing one another.
This instance is merely another form of the cus
tom, followed by Lnion and Confederate soldiers
in the Civil War, of meeting at the pieket lines
and exchanging tobacco, or gathering to get water
for their wounded from a common source. This
queer practice is on record here in our own state
on a tablet at Spangler's Spring, on the battlefield
There have been little incongruities and big ones
since the opening of hostilities in Europe. The
soldiers cannot quite adjust themselves to their
changed environments. Consistency in small thing*
cannot well be expected of men who kill the cows
in a community to get meat, and let the babies
starve for want of mik.
Perhaps it does not matter so much that cash is scarce.
.They are trading in stick pins on the New York Curb
Beck, the star of Tech High School football team, will
be graduated in the Spring, but we predict he will be hoard
from on some college eleven next Fall.
The new federal reserve bank notes have reached Harris
burg, but they do not buy any more beef and beans than
the old greenbacks of the same denominations.
After today's football clash between the Army and
Navy the sporting "fans" will begin to turn their attention
to the Spring training plans of the baseball leagues.
Reports from Petrograd state that 50,000 German sol
diers were taken prisoners in Poland in one battle. Per-1
haps any one who saw the recent state firemen's parade in
this city can get some conception of the size of the military
operations going on in Europe when he is reminded that
an army of 50,000 numbers about five times as many
men as marched in that firemen's procession.

NEW CONFIDENCE GAME
Edgar Lewis, a moving-picture director, told a story of a
confidence man with new ideas. He called the swindler
Nat Pierce in telling the story. Mr. Lewis sai.l that he was
sitting near a group of rich Westerners in the Waldorf when
he heard a page calling "Mr. Nat Pierce, please." The
Westerners became interested. One of them said:
That is the name of the.clever, promoter we met to-day.
Let's see who is calling on him."
They stopped the page and took the card. It was that
of Senator Elihu Root.
"Ha, ha!" they said, "he mus» be all right. Here is
Senator Root's card."
Soon another page came through "Peacock alley," call
ing, "Mr. Nat Pierce, please!"
The Westerners stopped him and looked at the card.
It was that of M. Jusserpnd, the French ambassador.
"This is enough!" they chorused and went out to look
for Nat Pierce and his glittering opportunity. They found
him carelessly shuffling a collection of cards ranging from
Governor elect Whitmau's to that of President Poincare of
the Republic of France.—New York Sun.
THE WAY TO CUBA
At a dinner reference was made to the good old school
days, and Charles F. Murphy, the Tammany leader in New
York, was reminded of an incident along that line. One
afternoon Mr. Murphy said the teacher in a public sdiool
was hearing -the geography class, and after others had
answered various questions, she turned to a small lad named
"Willie," said she, "describe to me the route you would
take if you were going to Cuba."
"Yessura," responded the youngster, a little doubtfully.
"I would go to New York, and then—and then —"
"Well, Willie," interposed the teacher, as the boy paused,
"what would you do then!"
"Why, I would get on a steamer," replied Willie after
another moment's thought, "and leave the rest to the

Pennsylvania Day at 'Friaco
At the next meeting of the Pennsyl
vania Commission .of the Panama-Pa
cific Exposition it is expected that a
day will be set to be known as Penn
sylvania Day at the big 'Frisco Show.
The new state building is going up
rapidly and will be ready by February,
when the exposition will be finally
opened. Pennsylvania Day will
| ably be observed some time on June,
and it is proposed to make it a gala
occasion. Thousands of former Penn
sylvanians now reside on the Pacific
slope, and in states between Chicago
aud San Francisco, and many of them
will be present, while Pennsylvania
| proper will send a big delegation. Gov
ernor Tcner, as chairman of the State
j Commission, will have charge of the
ceremonies, and it is expected that
Governor Brumbaugh and a number of
other high state ofiicinls, with tho two
legislative committees and the presid
ing officers of both branches of the
Legislature, will be present. There will
be addresses on that occasion, and it is
possible that the old Liberty Bell in the
State House in Philadelphia will be
shown. The Pennsylvania exhibits will
be installed as rapidly as room can be
made for them in the various buildings
sot apart for exhibits at the exposition.
The State Building will contain no ex
hibits, but will be for the accommoda
tion of Pennsylvanipns and their friends
who visit the show.

1,000 Deer Killed This Year
According to the reports and esti
mates of Secretary Kalbfus, of the
State Game Commission, there have
been more than a thousand deer killed
in Pennsylvania during the season just
closed. State game wardens and of
ficers of sportsmen's associations have
been requested to send in reports of
game killed, including deer, grouse,
quail, rabbits and woodcock, as soon as
possible in order that the total may be
made up as nearly accurate as can be.
Another of the big elk, brought from
the Yellowstone Park for breeding pur
poses more than a year ago, has been
found dead near a hunting camp occu
pied by a sportsmen's club in Clearfield
county. The animal was killed with a
round ball fired from a shot gun, and
the person who killed it was evidently
afraid to take the carcass as ho left it
in the woods. It is supposed that a
deer hunter, seeing the elk's horns, mis
took it for a deer and fired. The car
cass was in such condition that it could
not ho used, but the head may be saved
for mounting. The Game Commission
has a report of the arrest of a hunter
in Columbia county for killing a deer
with a load of shot, which is forbidden
by law, as only ball can be used. The
hunter was fined.
* « *
Killed His Deer First Day
One of the aggravating things about
hunting deer in Pennsylvania is that
after a hunter kills lvis deer ho cannot
shoot another one. The law is that a
hunter ean kill but one deer in a sea
son Hnd after he has bagged hi 9 one he
is barred from participating in the
hunt, so far as shooting is concerned.
Of course he can go out and hunt, if
he wants to, but there isn't any fun in
tramping the forests and seeing a big
buck deer and letting it get by without
taking a shot at it. And yet, if the
hunter does this, and kills more than
one deer, he is liable to a fine of SIOO.
A young Pliiladelphian came up from
his city at the beginning of the season
this year and went camping with a par
ty of Franklin county hunters in the
vicinity of Mont Alto. On the very
first day he went out with his trusty
rifle he killed a fine buck* and that
barred l»im from further participation
in the sport. He had to sit arouud
ea"nip during the rest of his vacation
and see the other fellows go out to en
joy the chase and in the evening lis
ten to descriptions of the fun they had
during the i!ay. He went home on the
closing day of the season but he wat
fortunate. He was the only fellow ia
the camp to kill a deer.

The Power of Vodka,
Much interest was taken in a bottle
of vodka, or Kussian liquor, that was
being shown by a man in a Market
street cigar store last night. The own
er was just from New York, and had
bought the liquor as a curiosity, as lie
believes, it has never been seen in this
vicinity, at least has n«ver been offered
for sale by any of the wholesale liquor
stores or 'behind the bars. Vodka is a
pure white liquor d'istilled from stale
•bread, potatoes, or any other thing that
you might think would not form the
basis of whiskey, and it is said to be
most potent as an intoxicant, albeit its
qualities as a thirsrt-assuager are said to
be nil, one drink creating a desire for
another one until the man who par
takes of it to any great extent is laid
out flat. One drink will make a man
wealthy, two will make him bellicose,
threo will make him steal his own
pockeftbook and four will induce him to
stone his grandmother. The Czar of Rus
sia has forbidden its manufacture and
sale in Russia, and as the Russian gov
ernment hold the manufacturing priv
ileges, the Czar at one stroke of his
pen created a condition of tewperance
in the home country. Volka can't t>e

of vodka that was made in Russia—
but a brand of white forty-rod whiskey

BIG SALES OF PIG IRON
FEATURE WEEK'S MARKET
Announcement From Pittsburgh That a
Lading Steel Company Will Sell at
Present Prices for First Quarter of
New York, Nov. 28.-j-' 4 The Iron
Age'' says sales of pig irofc fcv BulT-ilo
furnaces amounting to 150,000 to 210,-
000 tons are the chief feature of tho
iron market in a week that has brought
little change in finished steel. A de
velopment at Pittsburgh that may be
come important is the announcement
that a leading steel company will tell
at present prices for the first quarter of
next year and is authorizing its sales
managers to meet the market.
It has been found that the better
sentiment of the past three weeks has
not kept prices from yielding, and it
is evident that the policy of important
steel producers wilt now be to sell free
ly for the first quarter of 1915 at the
best prices that can be obtained, "his
may result, as in the closing weeks of
1911, in a more active market and
make December, as is being predicted,
the best month for bookings in the final
quarter. Prices are now close to the
well-remembered level of those of three
Tho sales of pig iron at Buffalo in
two weeks have been close to 250,000
tons, and by some authorities those of
the past week are put as high as 1;00,-
000 tons. The American Radiator
Company alone took 108,000 tous for
delivery in the first half of 1915.
There were also two 15,000-ton lots,
several of 10,000 tons and a consider
able number of 5,000 tons. Most of
the buying was for New England and
New York State foundries, and sl2 for-
No. 2 X was generally the basis, though
this was not the minimum. Buffalo fur
naces are generally sold up far into the
first quarter, some well into the second
quarter, aud asking prices of two inter
ests are now sl3, with $12.50 as mini
mum for early delivery. One furnace
company will shortly blow in a furnace
at Buffalo aud one at Detroit.
Iu other districts Cincinnati, next to
Buffalo, has been active in pig iron,
sales there of both Northern and South
ern iron being the largest in several
months. There are indications that the
buying by large foundry interests, who
were attracted by recent low prices, will
broaden into a considerable movement.
Sales of Southern iron by the Steel
Corporation were 30.000 tons last week,
including 16,000 tons of basic to an
Ohio river plant. Three lots of 5,000
tons of basic were placed in the Cen
tral West by the American Steel
Foundries for Alliance and Sharon
works, 10.000 tons at $12.75, deliv
ered, and 5,000 tons at $12.50 at fur
November orders in finished lines
have been less than the October aver
age with some producers. The Steel
Corporation's bookings, including ex
port business, have averuged ailwut the
same as for last month and in the past
week have ibeen slightly better. Its in*
got production is now at 38 per cent,
of capacity, after having been consid
erably less early in the month. Out
of its 119 blast furnaces, 74 are idle,
the active capacity beiftg 40 per cent,
of the whole. Since November 1 a num
ber of furnaces have gone out, includ
ing one Duquesne, one Ohio and one
Central at Cleveland, in tho past week.
Published, statements as to steal
works and rolling mift" resumptions are
misleading. There are alternating stops
and starts, the latter being published
and the former suppressed. In the in
dustry as a whole it is doubtful if any
real gain has been made in employ
ment this month.
Bars, plates and structural shapes
show a shade more activity this week.
In the Central West the first two have
sold at 1.05 c, Pittsburgh, in ordinary
business. The weakness of steel bars
is due in part to the competition of iron
bars, a sale of the latter, made at Buf
falo, figuring back to .90c at Chicago
The New York Central's 25,000-ton
rail order has been placed with the
Lackawanna Steel Company and large
ly will ibe rolled before 1915. Some
foreign rail business has been done of
which details are not given out. Of t'he
25,000 tons of 60, 70 and 80-pound
rails and 5,000 tons of track supplies
for Norway, bids will be opened at
Christiania on November 27.
The length to which cast iron pipe
makers have gone to get winter work is
shown in a bid of $19.60 on 4,000
tons of 60-inch pipe at Boston this
week, the next lowest bid being
$20.75. Dayton, Ohio, is in the market
for 5,500 tons of 3 to 36-inch pipe.
Our London cable refers to the safe
of ferro-manganese afloat at $62, c. i.
if., Baltimore, although S6B was nomi
nally the market before the British
government embargo. No new ship
ments from England have yet been ar
ranged for, as the result of Washing
ton negotiations. In the case of man
ganese ore the Btate Department's ef
forts released loaded vessels at Indian
ports forthe Steel Corporation, but there
is no promise of further shipments to
this country from India-
