LOAN IS FOR SHELLS
Anglo-French Commission and Some
American Bankers Insist It
Coyer War Supplies.
OTHER FUTAlfCIEItS SATOQ NO
NEW YOrtK, Sept. IS. The
Anglo-French financial commission
era, who are seeking to establish a
mammoth credit loan here, and
American financiers, who expect to
supply the money, were reported to
be at odds tonight over the burning
question of Including munitions of
war among exports to be paid for by
the proceeds of the loan.
On several details of the loan, the
commission and bankers have agreed
but on this major question, it was
said, their views are diametrically
opposed. Further It developed, to
night there is an apparent split on
the question In the ranks of the
American financiers. 1
The commission's attitude. a far as it
can be Interpreted, from a canvass of
such bankers conferring with It today, as
would talk. Is that the big credit, whether
a billion dollars or less, should provide
funds for "all exports and that munitions
of war certainly should be Included.
Soma V. S. Bankers Ray Yes.
Some American bankers think so, too,
but a great many are said to be of the
opinion that the loan should cover only
commodity exports, such aa wheat, cot
ton and manufactured products and that
another method must be found to pay for
munitions of war, even if this method In
volves the shipment of huge stocks of
gold across the Atlantlo to the United
The situation has not reached the acute
stages of a deadlock nor anything ap
proaching It, but the line of demarca
tion ia clear sand well defined- Many
hours. It became known : tonight, have
been paesed In discussing this single is
sue and many more. It was thought,
would follow In similar discussion be
fore it Is decided.
A minor point of variance between the
commission and some American bankers
is the role that Russia Is playing in the
participation of the loan. The commission,
although aotlng officially only for Great
Britain and France, la popularly be
lieved to contemplate Including Russia In
Its plana, too. Authority for such Inclus
ion, it is thought, would follow the forth
coming conference at London among the
Russian and French finance ministers
and the British chancellor of tha ex
chequer. Want to Deal with Haaatav.
But some American bankers want to
deal direct with Russia and object, it la
reported, to having it obtain money in
this country through England and
A third point of disagreement, subor
dinate to either of the others, ooncerns
the rate of Interest.
If the commission's callers have cor
rectly reflected Its views in their talks
with newspaper men. Great Britain and
France are emphatlo tn their assertion
that the proposed bonds shall not pay
mora than f per cent Interest and there
will be no underwriting of the Issue.
This' would eliminate the possibility that
any group of bankers would be paid fat
fees to plana - tha loan on the market
here. The return to the banker and the
Investor, It ' ta reported, is to be the
As to this proposal. It is understood,
the American . bankers generally have
been won over. Hera and there, however,
a voice of dissent is heard. In some quar
ters a return of one-half of 1 per cent
to the bankers Is ' regarded aa no more
than due,' But It Is almost unanimously
believed that the commission has firmly
determined that London and Parts shall
be put to no greater expense than a
straight S per cent Interest rate, beyond
a moderate sura for clerical aid In dis
tributing the big issue here.
Instead of using underwriters. It was
thought tonight, the issue would be
placed through a syndicate, which would
subscribe to tha loan and that subscrip
tion would be open to all earners upon
. Thus the smallest of tha approximate
12,000 national and state banks and trust
eompanlea throughout ths United States
would secure exactly the same terms aa
the largest or as any great private bank
ing firm, such as J. P, Morgan A Co.
Such, It is reported. Is the present In
tention of the commission. If this pro
gram .be followed, there are Indications,
amounting almost to positive assurance,
it waa said, that the. so-called pro-German
financiers of New York would, for
the moat part, subscribe millions of dol
lars toward the project, always with tha
condition Included that tha funds be un
available for munitions of war.
If war munitions are Included within
the scope of the credit. It waa asserted,
there la not a so-called pro-German
tanklng house In New York City that
will subscribe a penny. Kuhn. Loeb A
Co. are reported to be willing to head
the list of so-called pro-German houses
subscribing. If munitions be" excluded.
This report, however. Is not authorita
tive, though apparently It is well
grounded, as the firm has made no state,
ment over the signature of any of its
members, one way or the other.
GERARD GALLS OH
Visit Presumably Made in Connec
tion with Situation Regarding
Sinking of Arabic
FEELTNQ HOPEFUL IN BERLIN
BERLIN. (Via London), Sept IS.
James W. Oerard, the American
ambassador to Germany, today at
noon called on Dr. Gottlieb von
Jagow, foreign minister, presumably
In connection with the situation sur
rounding the sinking of the White
Star line steamer, Arabic, by a Ger
man submarine and the opening of
negotiations on the submarine prob
lem. No definite Information Is ob
tainable, however, concerning the
subjects dealt with.
Nothing can ne learned here
which goes to confirm the statement
made In Washington dispatcher that
it waa the Intention to open conver
nations between the two countries on
the submarine situation, but officials
assume that the news is correct and
express the belief that the difficul
ties between the United States and
Germany would be on a better way
to settlement by such a method.
Difference in viewpoints, which 'are
only stiffened when laid down In formal
notes, can, It is generally believed, by
the officials, be more easily adjusted in
Informal conversations and all the more
so, they say, because the fundamental
differences of policy have largely dls
sppeared under the new instructions re
garding attacks oa paseenget steamers.
The United States and Germany, It is
declared, appear to be now la substan
tial agreement on the principle Involved
and tt is now largely a question of ad
justing eases like the Arabio ta con
formity with that principle.
Germany, Its believed here, will be
ready to consider testimony bearing on
the points of how far the captain of
the submarine waa Justified la his belief
that the Arabio waa bent on attacking
the submarine and In conversations tt
will have tha opportunity to satisfy the
American government that Its policy and
aractloe under present conditions will
harmonise In the future,
