beginning of the war, while the per-
centage of Norway's loss is slightly
higher. France has suffered in about
the same proportion as has Italy, but
the merchant marine of other nations
has been less affected. The percent-
age of total loss accredited to Ger-
many and her allies is only one-thou-

Effect on Business.
General business has, unlike the
stock market, not yet had time to be
affected by the new movement for
peace. and may not be affected at all,
-should the attempt prove abruptly un-
successful. but should negotiations fol-
low, even if long drawn out with fight-
ing continuing, there will be added
caution manifested in purchases, al-
though throughout these have been
conducted generally with much con-
servatism. The decline in raw cot-
ton has had its effect on prices of cot-
ton fabrics, and tended to check any
further advances which had been

the most thorough and beneficial
liquidations which it has experienced
for a considerable period, and it will
be a long time probably before it gets
again in danger from over-speculation.
Good stocks are now selling at attrac-
tive levels, and the sound situation in
the market makes advances extremely

Army Five Defeated by Crescent A. C.
West Point, N. Y., Dec. 18.-Two
Army teams went down to defeat on
the basketball court here. The Varsity
five lost a fast game to the Crescent
Athletic club of Brooklyn by a score
of 35 to 24, and in the preliminary
contest Yonkers high school won from

out-played the Cadets in the second
period, sensational baskets by Nicklas
and H. Halstead figuring largely in
their uphill fight. Vidal made his de-
