Baltimore, Md. (Nov. 14)
One of the indications that the world is drifting back into an era of militarism and dissension comparable to conditions before the World War is “Democratic America making itself ridiculous by trucking to royalty in the ovations everywhere tendered Queen Marie of Roumania,” Rabbi William Rosenau declared in an address at the Eutaw Place Temple.
Negotiations for foreign loans to Roumania were reported in rapid succession the past week, despatches from Bucharest state. The series began with a reported loan of $100,000,000 from an American group, then a Â£30,000,000 one in London from an Anglo-American consortium.
Leading financial circles in Bucharest profess to know nothing about an American loan, and declare that obtaining a British loan would be difficult, inasmuch as the consortium was demanding a guaranty based on state monopolies and petrol royalties and receipts, with the consortium having supervision over the monopolies, receipts and royalties.
