   Waterloo Evening Courier And Waterloo Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - February 17, 1916, Waterloo, Iowa                              WATERLOO EVENING COURIER AND REPORTER, T1MJHSIUY. KKIWAHY 17, WORLD FACING TREMENDOUS WAR EXPENDI- TURES CAN'T GO OJf SPONSOR FOR "SUNRISE SLUMBER.' Exjwrt Prcdiicts Navy and Finance Will Win' tor Britain. London, Feb. (Correspondence of the Associated W. Hirst, editor of the Economist, talked with the Associated Press rep- resentative today on some of the eco- nomic aspects of the war and the tre- mendous expenditures it is piling up on the fighting nations. Mr. Hirst is one of the recognized authorities on economic and financial questions, hib work on. the political economy o! war having attracted widespread at tention as being one of the first ef-j forts to consider warfare as some-1 thing more than a clash of arms and the gathering soldiers. Colonel House was aware of this, and so when he came here recently to gauge sentiment, he turned to Mr. Hirst Quite as naturally as to the the po- litical and military leaders. Mr. Hirst is strongly in favor of a scientific blockade instead of "blockhead as he calls it, and his advocacy of the scientific blockade has much to do with tho plans tho governmental and naval i authorities'are now considering. He was asked the meaning of a scientific blockade. It means, he explained, a blockade based upon some intelligent distinc- tion as to what will injure and what will help an enemy, as against a blanket blockade spread over every- thing without regard to whether it injures or helps the enemy, and which, in the case of the old "block- head blockade" actually was o! bene- fit to Germany. Britain's Weapons. Mr. Hirst holds that the tradition- al weapons of England are the navy and finance, and not a large land force. That was the view of Mr. Lloyd-George last spring, and later of Mr. McKenna and Mr. Montagu, and the view of the board of trade as Factory Men in Conference bi> ragunU'd as inoillcnl consultations, n ml piiid for AUUCHT XIK.MAXX, H5.

AV1M) HOGS INCREASE IN AS OF WAH Berlin, Feb. war has evi- dently had a marked effect in reduc- ing hunting In Alsace-Lorraine, us appears from a recent decree of tho Strassburg authorities. Wild hogs have Increased In some parts of the country to such an extent that tho government has given to the local authorities the right to order the hunting of the animals at frequent Intervals during the winter months. This applies to casca where tho own- ers of hunting rights fail to shoot off the increase of the hogs, and the expressed by Mr. Ruuciman. ring to this, Mr. Hirst said: Refer- "In all wars of the past out of which Great Britain has emerged with a greater or less degree of suc- cess, we have always relied mainly on our naval and financial power. We have never attempted to raise a great continental army and have never adopted any form of compul- sion for military service abroad. In the Napoleonic wars it is quite true that the Duke of Wellington was in command of the British army in Spain and at "Waterloo. But I don't think he had on the average more than to men in the peninsula campaign, and at Water- loo only British troops were engaged. In this war parliament has already sanctioned an army of four millions, altho the navy is on a much larger scare than in the past and la playing at least as much part as it ever played in wars ot the past. in regard to finance. During the Napoleonic wars we gave day in England and five millions a day in Germany; could they go on? He said, however, there were some things he could not discuss and this was one of them. But he felt that there are financial and economic fac- tors in the wear that are as great or greater than military campaigns, expedition and which are steadily increasing in im- portance and which cannot be left out of account by those enthusiasts who would rush hlindly ahead and who talk lightly of. crushing nations and altering all the old boundaries of Europe. Some of these factors and their inevitable tendencies he had summed up in his political econ- omy of war, as follows: The Ruin That Threatens. What will he the condition of.

But few a number of small loans and sub- sidies to foreign powers. I think I am within the facts in stating that, up to the present, we have contract- ed or promised to our allies at least ten times as much in the course of a war of eighteen months as we con- tributed in the twenty-one years of the French wars. Ami it will be ob- served that the sum is much greater proportionately as well as relatively Smaller Army Hotter. facts will perhaps explain the reasonableness of the criticisn has been directed both to the expeditionary policy and to the size of the army. I may add that a ver> able business man in the house o commons, Mr. Holt, stated the othe day that we would be more likely t bring the war to a successful termi nation with an army of three millio than with an army of four millio men. This is clearly the case if thos military experts are right who hoi with de Bloch's theory that it is war of exhaustion and attrition, am that decisive military victories of the Napoleonic type are improbable. An- nother member of parliament, Mr. Godfrey Collins, who has studied mil- itary finance very closely, predicted last week that as a result of the ex- peditionary policy and the enlarge- ment of the army, our daily expendi- tures would rise in the course of a couple of months to pounds sterling, which would be at the rate of pounds sterling a year. German Finances Toppling. "Meantime German finance is crumbling. I judge that their expen- ditures are between pounds and pounds a. day, and the internal economy of Germany is suf- fering more and more from issues ol Indigestible paper currency."

It Is rather strange that Switzerland, far from the sea and without any cable connections, should be chosen to direct the vast ramifications of the world's cables, to which has now been added the world's wireless sys- tems, and all the telegraph of Eu- rope and the Orient. But it is large- ly for the reason that Switzerland has no direct interest in these huge systems, and stands at one side as a neutral observer, that she Is chosen to carry on this intricate service. ctdes. In 1913 there were sui- cides and attempted suicides, as com- pared with 1.2SG In 1914, and only SSI during the past year. DOCTOKS SCARCE IX VIENNA. Vienna, Feb. few doctors are left in Vienna that professional consultations over the telephone have become very numerous. In- stead of calling the doctor to the house many people now seek his ad- vice over the telephone, especially in cases where the patient has already examined..The Vienna Medical association reminds the public of a legal decision, rendered some years that such conversations are to ruptcies on an unheard of scale ar o be are questions vhich defy experience and baffle even.the wisest heads." And he adds: "If force leads nowhere and of- ers ho remedy, then reason must be summoned to save western Europe from social and economical ruin. Perchance the new world may recall sanity to the old." Colonel House had ample oppor- tunity in his recent visit to note and develop this last sentence. IT. S.

HORKORS HIT TKITTOXS HARD: XO MORK GARTERS OR SUSl'RXDKRS. Vienna, Feb. scarcity of rubber elastic has caused all the garter factories In Austria- Hungary to ciose down, as well as most of those In Germany, lilastic garters and suspenders are no 'longer to be "had, except where, here and there, a dealer had some stock left on his shelves. Elastic strings which could be bought be- fore the war at the rate of for 200 pounds, now cost from to for the same quantity, and are hard to get even at those prices. Thread has gone up from .70 cents to and dyestuffs have also doubled in price. SWITZERLAND COXTROT.fi 'CARLES OK THE WORLD How the Remedy for Catarrh Was Discovered. By the nfa> mfthod the and throat are Berne, Switzerland. Feb. Frey, former president of Swit.ze.r-1 land, is one of the notable men of the country, who since retiring from the presidency, has become head of the international union by which the tel- egraph, cable and wireless systems of the world are regulated at this cen- tral point. Hut while Mr. Frey has risen to the highest office in his own country, he feels that he is about half American for he was in the American Civil war from start to finish as a member of an Illinois regiment, was captured at Gettysburg and held as a prisoner for fifteen months at Richmond, met and knew such war figures as Grant. Sheridan, Lee and Longstreet, and later on returned to Washington as Swiss minister, where he renewed the acquaintance with Sheridan and others -made in war i days. When a friend remarked on the the cause, Careful experiments and investigations have shown that as the troubles were expelled from the nose and throat, the real cause of the disease was overlooked and in a short time the Catarrh would return stronger than ever.

WE DO NOT WANT TO ADVANCE PRICES AND WILL NOT, until compelled to, but it is absolute- ly certain as long as present conditions exist, prices are bound to advance for the reason that RAW SILK IS COSTING THE MANUFACTURER NEARLY DOUBLE WHAT IT DID A YEAR AGO. They are paying enormous advances for dyestuffs and dyeing-THE WAGES OF THE WEAVERS HAVE BEEN ADVANCED 15% IN THE FACTORIES THROUGHOUT NEW ENGLAND IN THE LAST 90 DAYS owing to the fact that the arms and munition factories are all working 3 shifts of 8 hours every day and paying big wages to get help, which has made it necessary for all other manufac- turers to advance wages very materially. We own and have in the store by far the greatest silk stock we have ever shown, all bought and con- tracted for long before the recent heavy advances. We propose to give our customers the benefit.
