In brief the article by Mr. Bryce is an eloquent and powerful defense of the United States and cannot fail to have great weight in convincing English speaking people everywhere? of the right of this country to maintain its neutrality and to keep out of. a war in wliich |t 'ar,solutely no call to engage. .And in writing and publishing tho article at this .particular time Mr. Bryce has again placed all Ahiericans Under obligations to him. REWEN OF WEEK'S BUSINESS THE WAIt IS Si'lM/TIIE IMI.MIXAt l5iC F.\€TOK I> FI.>A.ME. MR. BRVrj 'S TIMELY TlilBl'TE Viscount-James Bryce, former ambassador to; the United States, has rendered thip country much service in many ways,.; but not tlie least of his good"officesJhas been, the publication in a Londort newspapers of an article entitled "Tli-e Position of the United States in the War." The article is characterized by Mr.' Bryccs": unfailing good sejise and by his thorough understandiiig and comprehension of American sentinnent and system of government^' and it can hardly fail to help the Eiiglish to . a better undei- sthnding of our •attitude in the present crisis. ; I It is a raiher singular fact that ai the beginniiig of the war there was a very strong, feeling in England tliat American sentiment would be pro- German and that if thp war continued any considerable length of time the allies woul4 have to reckon with the United Statps as an onemy. As time passed and |his forecast was found to be widely ^t variance with the fact, there arose; iti England a sentiment Ivhich was ijot content with American neutrality t^t demanded that ih<- United States join,the Allies, and wat. inclined to make a cause of ;'. griev country. Tjie Gen never dreamed of ' cans for ijn|ally'l: ts failure to do so lince against this mans for their part having the Amori- ut have deeply resented the ^hti-Ge'•man feeling which they believe exist, in this country and have- particularly protested arms and ammuiii- Havlng no liop<- against the gale of| tion to the ,|! whatever ofrAmerfca as an ally, German . diploniacy has, without doiibi busied itself with bringing about as many oppoi-lunities for friction bo- ' tween the United Stares and England as possible, for perfectly obvious reasons. It wc^ld be giving German statesmen credit for much less sagacity than they possess to charge that the order tot all food in the German Empire to b^ in effect turned over lo the govcrnnjent was Tssuedx withou: expectation or suspicion that EnglaiK; would make it occasion for deciariiif; food shipments contraljand. On tin (jontrary it i^^ entirely certain'that tli' Geririan, order was issued for the vni-.v purpose of leading England to declare food shipments contraband, even though intended for civilian jiopula- tions, the hops of Germany, of course leing that ap embargo upon su<li shipments would involve England in trouble with Ihe Unitea States, it will almost certainly be clscovered also that the Geri^an government inspired the purchase of the ship Dacia as another effort to embroil the United •States with G^eat Britain. Under the circumstances no reasonable complaint can be made ai^ainst GermJiny for tliese efforts to S3w di.ssentio^s between her enemies and a great neutral power, but American and British Blatesnien wouid be short sighted and weak indeed if they 1 ermitted these efforts to succeed. Viscount Bryc^'s article therefore, is as timely in its address to Great Britain as tlie recent speech Ex-i'resideiit taft made at' .Morrisrown, .\. J., to ^he administration and the jjeopie of his country. ^1r. Hryce i)!ainly tells his countrymob that iriey have no cause of complaint against the United States, that this country was not Required by any rule either of poli- iics or moralsi to protest against the violation of ^Belgian territory or ^gainst any o| the breaches of the rules of wartime charged by England against G«rm4ny, and that the demand of the United States for fair treatment for jts commerce does not in any degree^ constitute .a cause of grie>ance on ^lie part of Great Brit- alrj. He calls^ attention to the corner stone of t American diplomacy which from the day of Washington has, been to kgep clear of European entanglements jind vigorously defends that position the only safe and wise one. tor this country to assume. .Incidentally'discount Bryce pays l^igh tribute t<^ the Aiherican^ ' Red Cross,, the Coipmission for'Relief in Belgiuin and ^ther American orkan- The chicken business, according to statistics, is greater In point of cash receipts than the steel industry . And yet the average' farmer doesn't k4.iow he has any cliickens except when company conies. Ut-c us forget the steel corporations and take care of the chickens.

Jamestown Optimist. New York, Feb. 27.—The linanciai markets of Ibis country; are still controlled by war news—the strain of the desperate European conflict being daily more and more manifest. Now that spring is .at hand fresh military activities may be expected; the period of deadlock is obviously drawing to a close, and preparations strenuously pushed all winter by both sides are hastening a greater and more acute crisis. Hence action more decisive than hitherto expericntjed cannot be far distant; The intenseiti- nahcial strain-abroati was very shi(rp ly reflected in the recent collapse 'of exchan^, from which there hag b&cn only a partial recovery. In this country the serious derangement of our foreign trade resulting from the war -has produced a big excess of bx- ports, which, though flattering at tiirsl; sight, is adding to the general complications. In settlement for our large exports we must take either gold or securities, or else grant extensivv credits until more convenient circuni- stances for settlement arrive. Gold we do not need for we have an ample supply on hand and regularly produce a surplus for export. Lond'fm needs gold vastly inor<> than wc ^^o, and it is to our own interest to Aid and not embarrass I^ondon; although et»n8iderable sums have been engaged at Ottawa for New York and more may follow. At the same time wc are taking .considerable amounts of Amer lean securities from foreign holders, and under Ihe present conditions may continue this absorption if the inddce ments are suflicientiy great. Before the war is over some very important shifts win occur in our foreign exchanges. Remittances abroad will necessarily decrease owing to reduced foreign holdings as well as to reduced profits and dividends. Tourist travel abroad will be praictically nil this com ing season, and tlje two or three hundred million dollars which Americans spend every year'in foreign countries^ will be largely kept at home; incidentally to the advantage of American railroads and hotels. There will also be a materi:il decliife in immiga.tion. which has already fallen heavily and is a factor of some consequence in our international trade balance. Our foreign ti-iidc plainly s:iows the effects of, the war. In'.lanuary the to jtal exports of merchandise were $2H7. ISOO.OOO or $03.S0O,OftO ahead of last lyear. About ?44 ,Ono .O(iO of this in* crease was credited to breadstuffs alone and *){,0O0l00o to meats. In addition there was a large increase in shipments of war,materials. Some im portant losses- had to he taken into consideration including about $.S.Onn.- 000 in cotton and .$2 .ooo,oon in mineral oils. .Tanuary's total exports have been only twice exceeded. Our export trade though satisfactory in volume has been seriously deranged; and the heavy shrinkages have only been compensated for by shipments of food stuffs and war materials. The demand for the latter is liable to sudden fluctuations. Should the Dardanelles be opened allowing a free exportation of Russian grain, that must inevitably have an important effect on our exportation of wheat: and when peace begins to dawn we may expect a drop in orders" for munitions of war which have hitherto usefully filled the gap in foreign-orders, in imports there was also a heavy loss. A more reliable indication of the effects of war oil our foreign commen-e v.ill, I IDW- ever. lie found In the country's record of exports and inports for the past seven months or since the wa^r began. Our total exports within tlii,:- period have beeii $l,:i34,()O0,O00 or $l.S7.0l,H.l ,ooo less than the same time last year. Imports were $0;{»-,«()0,000 of $137,000,000 less tiian a y<!ar ago. Here is a loss in imiiorls and exports comijined of 1324,000,000 in the short space, of seven months. The fact? thai Ihe excess of exports has dwindled $.50,000,000 in Jhe last seven montjlis is somewhat of a siirprise. How this derangement of our foreign will extend it is impossible to estimate. Much damage and confusion has already been done, but we ar<' likely to remain more fortunate than any other nation, as long as our ability to ship foodstuffs, cotton and war materials is unchecked. Aiif stoppage of these through an embargo or other causes, will add to ilic derangement which already exists in our foreign intercourse. The business siiuation at home is not satisfactory. Only in "the agricultural' districts is there any normal activity and genuine nopefulness. In other parts of the country tliere is a sane deterininatioii to m.fke the best of things and keep coo: under irritating conditions. Hut war has so disturbed credit and trado as to imji.iir confidence, and no real imiirovement in the latter respect can be expected until the prospects for peace improve. An early termination of the war would undoubtedly be a powerful stimulus for business recovery in the United States. At present business is being conducted on restricted lines. Clearing house returns show diminished activity in all parts of the coun try unless it be in the middle northwest. Railroad earnings are also unsatisfactory, the total for roads thus far reporting in February being a decrease of over 10 per cent. Tlie iin- provement previously reported in the steel industry is well maintained, and production is now estimated to be run ning at about 65 per cent of total capacity. The bulk of new or'.ers came from the railroads and pricf ; are. fair ly well maintained. In lUe cotton goods industry orders are being placed Avith much caution, though on a strictly moderate scale, and the outlook is somewhat brighter than a month ago. The money market is easy and loanable funds are plentiful to good borrowers. The investment demand for securities however, is spasmodic, and (here is a cisposition to await fiirther development in foreign financing Preparations are being made for' the flotation of big war issues on the other side, and this up- .•ivoidably exercises a depressing effect upon the entire market. March dividend disbursements are estimated at ?ir (i,000,0O0, a decrease of $10,000,000, compared with last year. The corporate maturities whitdi will have to, be provided for in March aggregate ^72,1)00.000, Against $53,000,000 a year ago, and Include $23,000,000 of Bostt^n and Maiix? notes; also $12,500, 000 Amalgamated Copi;er notes. .N'ot a few of our best slocks are selling below intrinsic values at the present moment, but the conditions are against any jx^rmanont advance for the time being. The immediate outlook is for an irregular market, and the upward movement will undoubtedly depend upon the continuance^ of favorable conditions. HENRY CLI':WS.
