The church of St. Mark, the
Doges Palace uid the Bell Tower
were the buildings that interested
us most. The Doges Palace is
beautifully built and commands a
fine view of the harbor. The halls
are large, and entertaining therein
must have been a simple thing for
the old tyrants. The tuiurd room
and prisons were dark and gloomy
places, and in one wall there was a
little slit cut in the shape of a
lion's mouth, and it was used to
send secret messages of plot or
intrigue to the Doge-when the
giver didn't want to betray his
own identity, and many a poor fel
low must have lingered in the
damp and dreary dungeon while
his enemy made merry up in the
great banquet hall above.
The Canipneile w a s new-made
of red brick and not so very beautl-
ful-but an ascent in the elevator to
the top was well worth the trouble,
as the panoramic view from the
tou was wonderful. Un one side
you could seethe Italian mainland,
to the left the ocean and the is
lands of Venice and to the west
ward lav the immense mass of the
lps, cutting off all approaches;
and it was easv to see why the
Romans felt so safe with that great
bulwark between them and the
wild hordes of barbarians.
A pleasant train ride took us
from Venice to Lake Como, where,
at the Villa d' Iiste, at Chernobio,
we spent two very pleasaut days,
gathering wild flowers. Leaving
Chernobio bv an early train we
were able to go to Milan and catch
the express through the Simplon
Tunnel, reaching Lausanne in the
The Lake of Geneva was as
beautiful as ever, and w e took
train next day and spent a day at
Montreaux and visited the Castle
of Chi lion, made famous by Lord
Bryon's poem, "The Prisoner of
Chillon." I had not been there for
thirty years, vet it seemed but
yesterday. Thi old castle is going
to pieces and thev are busy re
building it, as the number of'tour
ists who visited the place is enor
tnous and there must be a consider
able revenue to the State from such
As it was too early in the season,
no lake boats were running, so we
had to take the train for Geneva
the town famous for its watches,
and nt Messrs. Golav, Fills and
Stahls we were able to see some
of the watches and inlaid work,
which were splcnd'd works of art.
ON TO PARIS.
The cry now w a s, "On to
Paris", so we said good-bye to
pleasaut Switzerland and now, for
the first time, we had trouble at
the custom house. It was a rainy
day, yet the French officials made
the passengers take out all their
hand baggage and carry it to a
Ir.rge room. No sooner did we get
there than the customs officer ask
ed the foolish question whether I
had anything dutiable, and upon
my indignant denial he immedi
ately passed me and I had to carry
all my hand baggage back again
to my coupe.
At all other boundaries an offi
cer came through the train and
asked politely and bowed himself
out, without disturbing anything.
We reached Pans at eleven o'
clock at night and drove through
interminable streets till we reached
our hotel on the Champsylese,
near the Arch of Triumj h. It was
a beautiful location and the streets
were well lighted, and the number
of autos rushing up and down the
avenue confusing; but this hotel
was too far from Ihe city, so we
moved to the Continental Hotel,
on the Rue de Rivoli, and enjoyed
it very much.

(From S. F. Chronicle)
The reduction of the national
revenues by the war is reillv a case
of Administration luck, for it will
supply the Democrats with an ex
cuse, good until after election, for
a deficiency of revenue which was
beginning to accrue before the war
broke out and which was certain to
grow larger ns the months went
For many years the revenue
from customs has been the main
stay of the Federal finances. Those
revenues and the internal taxes on
alcohol and tobacco hae provided
the monev for Federal expenses,
and left virtuallv all o.her sources
to the support of slate and local
government. In time of war stamp
and some other extra taxes were
always sufficient for emergency
purposes and weie willingly paid
becaus- the emergency was recog
Under that system we prospered.
The protection to home industry
which it involved kept our mills
and our workmen cmploed. while
at the same time our importations
of foreign products which we can
not economically produce made an
ample- basis for foreign purchases
of our surplus products and pro
vided incoming hidings for the
ships to carry away our products.
The decline of American pros
perity began with the virtual cer
tainty that a radical change in our
fiscal system was impending. Its
effect was to i educe production,
mpair purchasing power, increase
unemployment, and infringe on
the sources of state and local revenue.
The result, of course, was to re
duce importations of duty-prying
goods by reason of the impaiied
purchasing power. This had be
gun to snow in me mommy re
turns before the war broke out,
with a certainty of its continuance
and increase, and new Federal tax
ation still further impairing the
rcources of state and local revenue
was beginning to be taiked about
The war came to cover all this
up and relieve the Democratic
spellbinder during the coming
campaign from "explanations" or
attempted explanations, sure to be
both embariassing and unsatisfac
tory. This temporary obscuration of
the issue, however, will not be
permitted to become effective, for
the Republican party will continue
to insist on the importance of
maintaining the national standard
of life and purchasing power by
the protection of home industries
and the restoration of duties on
imports to its former place as a
producer of revenue in order to
conserve other sources of taxation
for state and local use.
