Many Tropical Fruits Found.
A great variety of tropical fruits is
to be found in Porto Rico. Oranges,
pineapples and bananas are the prin-
cipal ones. Millions of oranges and
pineapples are exported to the United
States every year. The oranges are
large, juicy, and sweet, and they have
a delicate flavor. The fruit is at its
height in January, February and
March. Porto Rican pineapples are
the finest in the world. Ot r fruits
which flourish are the lime, lemon, cit-
ron, date, fig, guava, tamarind, lechosa

view. "Offered by the richest country
in the world and backed by ample
collateral, it is in tlhe highest class

Continuation of Prosperity
In order to make business good,
normal purchases by railroads are re-
quired. War orders for the last two
years have taken the place of rail-
road purchases. To meet the peace
conditions with war buying stopped,
there will be a great demand for rail-
way buying of equipment, improve-
ments and extensions. The roads are
not in a position to make good for the
present needed transportation facil-
ities.
The railroads are short at least 100,-
000 cars needed to care for their cur-
rent transportation. It is this short-
age, combined with inadequate term-
inal facilities, which is causing the
widespread congestion and makes nec-
essary the embargoes. In addition to
this replenishment, which would bring
the roads up to normal capacity, a
yearly requirement of $300,000,000 for
expenditures for equipment alone dur-
ing the next three years would be

is probably greater in that through
our surplus capital we can be useful
to England in preserving what she has
already established.
"An unofficial alliance with England
and French capital would give greater
safety and stability to our progress,
and Europe's need of such support for
a number of years following the war
will insure us immediate results that
otherwise could have only been ob-
tained by long years of patient build-
ing. In such co-operation tries our
greatest opportunity, and it should not
be endangered by faltering in the last
stages of the conflict, or withdrawing
the financial support that has been up
to this time so splendidly extended.

New York, Jan. 22.-An anony-

It set what was declared to be a new
high record for war relief contribu-
tions from unidentified donors. The
largest anonymous contribution for
that purpose previously announced

France in an official financial alliance,
must take a greater part in interna-
tional banking, and must plan an ex-
tension of credits for reconstruction
and development purposes in other
countries. The above policies were
advocated by Samuel MacRoberts, ex-
ecutive manager of the National City
Bank of New York, and H. Parker
Willis, secretary of the Federal re-
serve board, at the seventh annual
dinner of the Boston Chapter of the
American Institute of Banking, held
at the Hotel Somerset, a few days ago.
Investments in other countries were
urged by Mr. MacRoberts as the most
effective means of controlling the ex-
isting enormous gold supply in the
United States. "Investments 'of cap-
ital in foreign government securities
in sufficient volume will protect our
gold against the immediate effects
of the inevitable reaction after the
war, and at the same time will pre-
vent an inflation of bank credits at
home," he declared.
Without the experience and banking
facilities essential to export trade
Mr. MacRoberts believed that the
United States was in no position to
dominate world commerce and that
New York and dollar exchange would
not replace London and pound ex-
change in world finance.

fund institution whereby veteran mem-
bers of the orchestra upon retirement
from age or illness are sure of an
annual income which will keep them
from want. The pension fund was or-
ganized in 1900 by Wilhelm Gericke
who was then conductor of the orches-
tra. A number of gifts have been made
to it and much more has been prom-
ised. The members of the orchestra
pay annual dues, and twice each win-
ter a concert is given in Symphony
hall, the entire proceeds of which are
devoted to the fund.
At the present time there are over
twenty pensioners and the fund now
amounts to several hundred thousand
dollars.
