The bankers and financiers of
| the country are discussing tho
! probability and advisability of an
other bond issue. It is admitted
by bankers in about all parts of |
the country that the government
would have no difficulty in get
ting all the mousy it wanted, and
might be able to borrow it as low
as per cent. .
As to the advisability of a bond (
issue there is a great variety of
opinion. There is a strong senti
ment expressed in the interviews
on the subject which are appear
ing in the public prints, that the
government should be more eco
nomical so as to avoid if possible
any further increase of the public
debt. It is pointed out that this
is not the time for making appro
priations for public buildings in
all the little cities of the country,
and that rivers and harbors could
get along with less than the river
and harbor bill carries for then).
There appears to be a very genera!
desire that the Nicaragua canal
be built as soon as possible, even
if bonds have to be issued for that
purpose. It is contended that it
would be a paying investment
from the start.
It can be safely said that the 1
republican managers do not want
a bond issue, and they are not go
ing to have one if they can avoid
it. That is apparent from what
Mr. Cannon said the other day on
the floor of the House. Tuere has
already been one bond issue of
$200,000,000 since this adminis
tration came into office, and an
other issue would help greatly to
defeat the republican party in the
next national campaign. The re
publican leaders understand that
very well, and so they will under
take to get along without a bond
issue. Still, the pressure in be
half of the Nicaragua canal is so
strong that the republicans may
consent to a bond issue for the
purpose of building the canal. If
all the schemes for spending mon
ey now before congress were ap
proved, however, there would be a
[ treasury deficiency even if there
should be a bond issue as large as
the last one.—Savannah News.

You may have heard
about SCOTT’S EMULSION
and have a vague notion
that it is cod-liver oil with
its bad taste and smell and
all its other repulsive fea
tures. It is cod-liver oil, the
purest and the best in the
world, but made so palata
ble that almost everybody
can take it. Nearly all
children like it and ask for
looks like cream; it nour
ishes the wasted body of
the baby, child or adult
better than cream or any
other food in existence. It
bears about the same rela
tion to other emulsions that
cream does to milk. If you
have had any experience
with other so-called “just as
good” preparations, you
will find that this is a fact.
The hypophosphito that are
combined with the cod-liver oil
give additional value to it because
they tone up the nervoui system
and impart strength to the whole
50c. and si.oo. all druggists.
