irgeutino securities owing to the news of revolution received late on Saturday inglish investors have almost a monopoly of interest in the obligations of the Ar gentine Confederation Those obligations not including state debts require the iransmission abroad by the Argentine na ional government of about 16000000 in gold yearly of which about 56000000 is or interest on loans and a little less than i6000000 on account of present and future railway guarantees A Revolt Against Honest Govennment Up to the period of the revolution there was every reason to anticipate a faithful ulfillment of obligations especially as he finance minister had instituted im portant reforms in the collection of cus oms and in putting a stop to official rob bery In these reforms Senor Uriburu acted without fear or favor offending many prominent people and dismissing and rebuking officers oE high and influen ial connections In this way he made many enemies for the government and Lid much to bring about the political cat astrophe PoIlfcJcal Corruption The extent of political corruption which as prevailed is probably unparalleled It s believed that for every dollar collected n customs revenue five dollars have been tolen and there is reason to suppose that his is far within the figures Had the reform instituted been followed up the Argentine republic would have been on a sound financial basis but the outlook is ow decidedly gloomy for creditors Aside rom its financial aspects however the revolution is regarded with very little in terest here No Faith in Latin America The newspapers contain editorials mak ng event the theme of gloomy pro shecies of the future of what the TJnited States secretary of state calls Latin America and adducing this with the razilian and Salvadorian revolutions and he expected upheaval in Chili as fresh roofs of the inherent instability of Latin Linerican political fabrics So long lowever as the first care of every revolu ionary leader on gaining control of af airs is to cabie an assurance to foreign lankers that all obligations including of course those incurred to the ex enses of the wLU be scrupu ouily observed Europeans will take bat a anguid interest in these bouleversements W 111 Operations LASCASTEK Pa July Rohre rollingmill will resume work on Have m Bloody Fight NEWPORT H L July Mc iowan and Benson McGill who jointly occupy a tenement

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
