World Needs Gold Strike to Supply Trade Demands United States and Great Britain Have Largest Reserves but They Are Careful About Lending. By \FUEDEBI,C 3. HASKIN WASHINGTON, March 5.--Never before has the. world been so eager for a new gold strike; never before has the business and financial machinery of the world been so badly in need of fresh supplies of the precious metal. An event such as the discovery of gold at Sutler's mill in California, in the Alaskan Klondike, on the Witwaterarand in South Africa or. at Broken Hill in Australia would electrify the nations from China to Peru and from Tasmania, to Spitzbergen. The two greatest republics of the world, the United States and France, nave as much gold, approximately, as all the other nations 0- the world combined. The United States has inwuj- 1 , neighborhood of $4,500,000,006'' Vaib France holds about $2,000,000,000. The nation next richest in'gold is Great Britain with about 5650,000,000 with Germany following with $530,000,000. Fresh Supplies Needed. The difficulty in Jthe situation ia that the United States and'France have continued to' attract gold over a considerable period of time .while other nations have steadily lost their holdings. This maladjustment of gold holdings slows down international trade, throws foreign ex,change out of line and acts as a brake on business revival. In such a situation, fresh gold supplies are imperatively needed to fill'the gapa in the world's financial structure. Gold is the standard medium of exchange thruout the world. International trade, in modern times, cannot be very successfully or profitably carried on without employment of gold. The rate at which gold is flowing to France and the United States is unprecedented for peace times. In the last year American supplies of monetary gold have been augmented by some $300,000,000 while France, in the same brief period, has added no less than 5450,000,000 to her hoard. The two countries, in .a single year, have absorbed an amount of gold from the rest of the world equal to new mine output for two years. . Situation Cannot Continue. Obviously a situation in which only two nations of the world absorb {wo years' gold output in a single twelvemonth cannot continue indefinitely. Already some countries have been forced off the gold standard thru the necessity of giving up their gold reserves and others are threatened. 'Falling prices of commodities all over the world, in ability of debtor nations to bo^row.and unTfiHingrfcaa of r.r^ilitor nations' to · lend have stimulated the concentration of goia in the United States and France. Both countries have far more gold than they need to meet their currency and credit requirements. Altho the federal reserve act requires a 40 per cent gold reserve in addition to the eligible commercial paper security, behind the dollar, we now have so much gold that tho gold_ cover is creeping up toward 100. If the trend continues there will be $100 in actual gold in treasury and federal reserve bank vaults for every -$100 in federal reserve oaper currency outstanding, France, ioo, has more than sufficient gold cover for her paper currency. Gold Is Regulator. Gold is the regulator o£ foreign trade. When a nation buys more :han it sells, that is, when the in- :ernational exchange of commodities does no balance that nation must remit in gold. The unprecedented fall in commodity prices, especially of such raw materials as farm products and the products of mines, has meant that much less money has been due the shipping countries. When rubber was selling for 'a dollar or more a pound, the rubber producing countries built up substantial credit balances. With these they were able to purchase large supplies of manufactured goods. But with rubber down around 10 cents it is obvious that only one- tenth as much credit is due the producing countries. , The prices of raw materials have dropped farther and more swiftly than the prices of manufactured goods. Therefore, 100 pounds of rubber will buy nowhere near as much as it would a few years ago and only about half as much as it would buy only two years ago 4 The nations must have certain imported goods, manufactures, and they must find some way to pay for them. The more rubber they ship the more will the marlfet be glutted and the lower will fall the price, aggravating a situation already bad. Where possible, gold is shipped: Britain Best Leader. The world borrowing situation is not favorable to these producing countries. France is lending almost no money at all outside her own borders or those of her colonies. The investment of American money in foreign issues is below what it. has been for some years. Great j Britain, altho impoverished from every point of view with only about one-seventh as much gold as the United States, has continued to lend as freely as her resources have permitted. Her [endings have not been large but the difference in attitude toward world borrowers is notable. The United States and France, with more gold than they know what to do with, have shut down on foreign loans, lending only a fraction of their capacity. Great Britain is lending abroad right up to the hilt. It is the traditional policy of Great Britain to lend money abroad, to have investments all over the world, not to carry all her eggs in one basket. In January of this year Great Britain found $25,000,000 to lend abroad but this was 40 per cent below January a year ago. With her diminishing gold supply she cannot continue even at this rate. Russia Greatest Hope. Prospecting for 'gold is going on feverishly all over the world in an j effort to catch up with the demand. Many mining engineers see the greatest hope of a big strike in Russia. In the czarist days preliminary geological surveys were made which snovrea stfoug-indications v of gold deposits, especially in the bleaker wastes of Siberia. They were never developed chiefly because of remoteness and the tremendous cost of transportation approach. It is understood that the present Russian regime, largely with the aid of American mining engineers, is undertaking renewed explorations. The flour gold sifters are busy again von the coast of California Flour gold is gold dust so finely powdered., as to resemble the consistency of flour. Gold dust such as that patiently recovered from tlia streams by placer mining or panning is much coarser. The flour gold is what has been washed down by the streams, grinding itself into ever more minute particles. It comes to rest on the beaches. Especially after storms, deposits of it will be found along the edges of wave and tide marks. A special type of beachcomber follows the vocation of flour gold mining. He camps on the beach and usually works only after the sea has been up. Then he scoops up tlia sand and washes the gold out of it. $12,000 WILLED FOR "PIN MONEY" "First Lady of Land" Gets Bequest From Estate of Philadelphia!!. PHILADELPHIA,' March 5. UP)-An annuity of ?12,000 to supply "pin money" for the "First Lady of the Land" was provided in the wiJ) of Henry G. Freeman, Jr., owner of a large parcel of Philadelphia real estate, who died in October, 1917. This was revealed today when the Fidelity - Philadelphia Trust company, executors and trustees, began an accounting because of the death of a son, William McLain Freeman one of two .heirs to Henry Freeman's $2,000,000 estate. The annuity t? the "First Lady" is to be known as the "Henry G Freeman, Jr., Pin Money Fund" and "shall continue in force so long as this glorious government lasts," the will provides. Some legal experts believe the annuity to the "First Lady" is voided by the rule against perpetuities, because it was ordered to be kept in force forever.
