of England had been able to stop the con
tinued heavy exports of gold to the I'nited
A British financier, discussing the situa
tion, said today: "The I'nited States can
hardly expod lx)ndon to finance the whole
world, and we are now confident that our
6 per cent rate is a safe and permanent
protection ngnlnst further Inroads on our
stock of gold. There Is no thought nt pres
ent of a 7 per cent rat.e, but 7 mid e ven
per cent will be adopted If necessary to
protect us against an abnormal depletion
of the gold reserve. Therefore, if tha
I'nited States continues to require gold for
the movement of the cotton crop or other
needs, we feel that relief should come from
the other side. Secretary Rhaw one be
fore relieved the situation by releasing it,
and we In ixindon cannot see why h"
should sit on hla gold chests while th'
Fnlted States draws lis needed supply of
gold from Ifjndon's depleted stock."
Shipment of Gold.
It became definitely known today that
about 110,000,000 In gold will be shipped
from England within the week, of which
amount SI, 450,000 went today to Egypt,
according to announcement. Its exact
destination continued more or less In
doubt, hut Egypt appears to be getting
the bulk of the gold, with Argentina and
Canada taking less amounts.
