Plan Under Discussion to
Furnish Additional Credit
Facilities to Live Stock
Men of Country.
By GRAFTON S. WILCOX.
Chicago Trlhnno-Omaha Bf Lraatd Wire.
Washington, June 10. Evidences
of co-operation between the admin
istration and the banking interests
of the country developed in two
Announcement was made that
President Harding has received as
surances from the leading interna
tional bankers that henceforth they
will obtain the government's sanc
tion to all foreign financial transac
A further indication of a desire
on the part of bankers to assist the
administration was eiven at a con
ference over the question of
financing the pressing needs of the
live stock industry through banking
The conference was called by Sec
retary of the Treasury Mellon.
Those present were J. P. Morgan
of New York City, . Benjamin
Strong, governor of the federal re
serve bank ot Jew iork; Vice
Gov. E. B. Piatt and John R. Mitch
ell of the federal reserve board, -and
Eugene Meyer, jr., managing di
rector of the war finance corpora
If it proves possible to raise suf
ficient funds to furnish additional
credit facilities for the stock rais
ing industry, the plan proposed, by
the federal rserve board for legisla
tion to make available to the war
finance corporation $50,(100.000 to be
used in live stock loans will be
Opposes" Special Legislation.
It developed that President Hard
ing is anxious to avoid, if possible,
special legislation providing finan
cial assistance to any ndustry when
the matter can be handled by the
bankers of the country.-
Trie arrangement by which the
international bankers will co-operate
with the government in their foreign
transactions is one of a voluntary
nature entirely. The, administration
does not desire to exercise control
over the situation through any legal
power, hut it was stated today that
President Harding ,' feels greatly
pleased over the willingness, ex
pressed by the bankers to seek the
informal approval of the govern
ment before any. further large for
''Kn transactions, such as the recent
French loan negotiated In this coun
"try, are entered into. According to
the c assurances given President
IT 1 - iL. a' t t 1
naming, me international oanncrs
will abandon any plan to which the
government may object to.
The agreement between the ad
ministration and the bankers, it wis
stated, does not mean that the gov
ernment will in any way stand back
of such ioreign loans, as may be
negotiated in this country, nor does
it mean that the backers have agreed
under all circumstances, to insist
that proceeds of loans of this charac
ter be expended in the United States.
As a result of the representation by
the international bankers that the
United States might benefit through
a roundabout transaction by which
a. foreign country used money ob
tained from American bankers for
purchase of goods in another coun
try, which country in turn bought
manufactured goods from the United
states, the administration is appar
ently content to trust to-the best
judgment of the bankers - on this
Investigation Planned. .
The conference held today at the
instance of Secretary of the Treas
ury Mellon relative to forming a
pool among .the. banks to finance the
live stock industry did not develop
definitely whether such a plan is
feasible. According to an announce
ment by Secretary Mellon following
the conference "a short investigation
will indicate whether or not adequate
financial relief for the live stock in
dustry may - be obtained through
private banking channels." ( .
Although the proposed legislation
..1.1 : J .MAnAAAA r . I
wuuiu uiciviuc aju.uuu.umi irom tne
treasury for live stock loans, it is
cfetary; Mellon's belief that so
(reac an amount may not De neces
sary. As a result of today's confer
ence, a further canvass will be made
ttf some of the leading bankers of
the country to determine just how
much money could be raised without
governmental assistance. .
. The special need for additional
tredit facilities for the stock raising
industry is due to the fact that live
itock paper running longer Jhan six
months is not eligible for rediscount
it federal reserve banks. Loans for
the purpose of feeding and fattening
:attle are thus more easily obtained
khan the longer time loans for breed
ing cattle. '- - . ' . ' -

funds by the war finance corpora

Washington. June 10. Plans of
the administration concerning the
shipping board were outlined in high
official quarters for the hrst time
since the appointment of the new
members with A. D. Lasker of Chi
cago, as chairman.
The necessity for the fullest co
operation with commercial interests
was r?mphasized by officials, in view
of what was described as the ''vir
tual paralysis of American shipping
and especially that of the shipping
It was stated that the object of
the new administration would lie to
place the corporation upon a strict
Iv business basis. This would mean,
as a start it was Said, the charging
off to the war. of the heavy losses
sustained by the government since
the corporation's inception.
This loss was estimated as the
difference between the war cost of
$3,000,000,000 and the present esti
mated value of the shipping board's
assets of from $750,000,000 to $1,000,
000.000. Confidence, in the future of the
American merchant marine was ex
pressed by Rear Rdmiral Benson,
on the eve of his retirement from
trr chairmanship of the board. The
new organization of which he will
be a member, will be perfected
The shipping board is now pass
ing through the critical period of
its career., he declared, with steadily
growing prospects tor a more iavor-
abie fature.;' - -.w.--, - - .
Of the near v LaOO Steel steamers
owned by the board, more than 5U
per cent are now operating, the re
tiring chairman sa,id, and the actual
nneratinff deficit has been reduced
to between $4,000,000 and $5,000,000
a month. .
"I believe that 'as trade picks up,"
he added, "and internal and indus
trial conditions in this country ap
proach, normal, the board's deficit
will be reduced until it is wiped out.
There is no question in my mind
but that American ships can be op
