al interest to the busmes's merfdf
the United Stated Gefthaiiy'ls
facing an industrial cata'clystii.'
Her only chance for escaping?
that condition is the winning-" "'of
the war, and levying- upon the
defeated nations money indemni
ties to pay her enormous- in deb
edness. The increase of Gar
many ?s debt, during- fouryers
of war, is 'from $5,200)o6;OOGU'
August, 1, 1918. The present
debt amounts to one-half of the
entire value of all of Germany
farms, factories, ships and mines
stated by Germany herself., as
$75,000,000,000. On this capitoj
wealth the annual income is giv
en as $10,000,000,000. "One sixth
of Germany's gross income is.no
sufficient for the interest on. her
debt. Another sixth would. " not
provide a sinking fund to .wipe,
out the principal. Germany is
borrowing money with which to.
pay interest, She is pyramiding
her debt. Her interest, charges
are aireaoy greater tnan her. say
ings, and her national debt is al .
most 50 per cent, of her entire.
These stunning .figures, in
creasing at the rate of $10,000 000
every day that the war goes qn,
tells the story of Germany's fitian
cial ruin. That result, as we
have said, can only be averted by
the complete victory of Germany
and by the indemnities paid by
the losing nations. No such 6,ut-
come is conceivable. hGernfany
cannot possibly win the war. Th4
Catclysm must come, and wiftj' it
and impoverished nation. Recti
peration is sure to be a long, i
slow process. It can only be ao
complished through production.
For that production, is the 'excess
of the greatly decreased po-werof
the German people kta "bay and
consume, world raaEketa must
furnish an outlet. The biggest
of all .world, markets the market
capable of absorbing as much of
Germany's surplus production 'as
nearly all the rest of world mark
ets put together is - the Uni ted
States. Upon this great market
with the present low Tariff and
no Tariff ot the Underwood Free
Trade schedules, Germany 'w&l
dump immense quantities of , her
industrial surplus. ( That is what
Germany after the war ends, will
do, unless the United States is
prepared to prevent it by a com
plete adequate Protective Tariff?
