HOW THE WAR WILL ADD TO
It was one of the favorite say
ings of the late J.P. Morgan that
the man who became bearish on
the future of this country would
go broke. That maxim was never
so rich in wise counsel as it is at
The one certain outcome of the
European war is that the United
States will be made prosperous
beyond what it would have been
rational to even hope for six
months ago. The causes which
make this destiny are many, and
so palpable that they must en-
force themselves on the recogni-
tion of even the pessimistic.
For some considerable time,
proportional somewhat to the
duration of the war, Europe
must buy of us in larger quantit-
ies than ever before. The incre-
ase in the exportation of cotton
will probably be greater than
that of anything else we
have to sell.
Greater still, and for all that
we have to sell, will be the in-
crease in our exportions to all
neutral foreign markets. Various
events of world-wide play are in
conspiracy to give a tremendous
impetus to the foreign commerce
of the United States.
