Foreign Trade Most Extensive in His,
tory; Gold Arriving in
There is no change in the situation
in general business. Production is go-
ing at an enormous rate, met by equal-
ly good distribution with average
good profits. In many lines sales have
been made for the whole of this year,
with good prospects for next year. The
recession of prices has been due to
very large production and not because
of a slackening demand. Our foreign
trade continues in largest figures, the
exports for May being the greatest on
record, with the trade balance double,
that of 1915. In the monetary area,
the feature continues to be arrivals of
gold from Ottawa and London. The
surplus reserves of the banks have in-l
creased and New York Clearing
House bank loans are now lower than
The recent drift of events in all
parts of the world has been more fav-
orable from the stock market point of
view. In Europe, though the conflict1
has broken more fiercely than ever
just now; it is the belief that the war;
is at least two-thirds over, and the
world at large is preparing for a re-
sumption of peaceful activities. Home1
conditions are particularly encourag-
ing. Though the agricultural output
this year is not quite so bountiful as
last year, good prices are practically
certain. The steel trade is suffering
from over-consumption. The textile
factories especially in New England,
are in fairly active condition. The boot
and shoe trade continues active, while
automobile makers have had an excel-
lent season; home trade having ex-
ceeded all expectations, while the ex-,
port trade has been phenomenal. 1
The stock market has shown fair
activity and responded readily to the
better conditions referred to above.
There is a good investmentcfor the
same reasons. The new security is-
sues for the principal states during
June were estimated at $13,000,000
more than a year ago. Of the total
issues for the last six months a largel
share has been spent for industrial and
miscellaneous purposes. Rumors of
further foreign loans in the foreign
market continue but have not yet ma-
terialized. Speculation has been more
active during the past two weeks, and
prices show a rising tendency.
Naval Cruise of Three Weeks to Give
Advantages of Drill to Those
Full of expectation and ardor sev-
eral men of the University of Mich-
igan naval reserves await a cruise
lasting from August 15 to September
12. The trip, however, is open to any-
one *who is an American citizen and
a graduate of a university, or exper-
ienced in engineering. Three weeks of
the cruise will be spent in gun drill,
foot drill, and landing, leaving the last
week for the more interesting work
of maneuvering and attacking and de-
fending ports. The cost of the trip to
each individual will include transpor-
tation to the port assigned, and a fee
of $30 to be paid on arrival at the
ship to cover the expense of provid-
ing each man with the necessary out-
fit of six suits.
