largely responsible for what has happened in the development of the iron horse since John St ens received from the state of New Jersey on Feb 16 ISIS the firit charter for a railroad in the United States At the time elghttcnth1 of the countrys 8350000 population resided in New York and tho states adjacent to the Atlantic Fellow Skeptical Stevens fellow citizens were skeptical There were curious de bates as to the relative merits ot steam carriage transportation and canal navigation It was not until 1830 that Stevens actually used his charter to form the Camden and Am boy railway company And even at the end of that year there were but 40 miles of railroac lines In the entire country But beneath the surface of the nations early apathy to the iron horse far reaching social and eco nomic developments were paving the way for the era of Vanderblll and Gould of Morgan Harriman and Hill Manufactures Develop Domestic manufactures began to develop Machinery made in the eas was beginning to be exchanged for cotton from the south and grain from the middle west In the decade between 1840 and 1850 more thanfour million immi grants had come to the United States The necessity of distribut ing these newcomers to unsettlec portions of the country helped to overcome resistance that was born of skepticism Railroad lines began to spring up here and there By the middle of the century the period

proposal by the American government that the bankers of the vorld maintain their present vol ime of credits to Germany has been aid before the interested powers at he London ministers conference Acting Secretary Castle of the tate department made known to day the details of the formal aug estions approved by President loover for relieving Germany At the outset the American pro josals placed entirely in Europes lands the solution of their politi cal problems Confined to Banking The American proposals were confined to banking operations It vas suggested that the mainten ance of the present levels of credits be supplemented with continued measures by Germany to stem the ntcrnal tide within that country It proposed the establishment nf a committee of the bank for Interna tional settlements or thru other means to secure cooperation in consulting world banking interestJ for renewal of short term credits cooperation in an inquiry to deter mine Germanys further economic needs and the study for the conver sion within six or eight months of a part of the short term credits into long term credits Castle estimated the total of tho short term credits at onehalf which is held by Amer ican bonks Restore Confidence The American proposals pointed out theh strain onGermanys eco nomic structure had come from tho flight from the mark in Germanv and the withdrawals of foreign credits It cited the restoration of confidence in Germanys economic life as the actual purpose of th5 proposal thru economic measures The plan had already been sub mitted by Secretary Stimson to tho French and Germans Saturday He said it had ben received in a friend ly spirit by the British The text of the American propos al follows The essence of the problem is tho restoration of confidence in

during the period of depression has jeen relieved by the joint action of the creditor powers in suspending nil payments upon governmental lebts during the period of one year But Germany has financed her eco nomic activities to a very great extent thru the medium of short term foreign credits There Is no reason to doubt the soundness of the basis upon which these credits rest But tho general uncertainty which has prevailed for the last few weeks resulted in such a loss of con fidence that the German banking and credit structure was subjected to a very severe strain This strain Turn In
