WHAT IT costs TO "EUNn MONACO.
\ STATE WHERE THE PEOPLE PAT KO TAXES
ANO BATE KO Vii I in PUBLIC AFFAIRS.
The report euri cut some time ago thal the Prince
of Monaco intended to resign as head of the
greatest gambling state in the worl 1 and d
himself to the pursuit of science, lils favorite pas
time. has apparently proved to be unfounded. He
earns his money too easily in his present place, and
evidently has little intention either of giving lt up
nr or driving the heads ,.f the gambling society from
j "Monaco," says tho "Staatsbuerger-Zeltun-r," "has
I 7.~O0 Inhabitant.. In 1814 Talleyrand wrote in the I
! diplomatic act which was to regulate the conditions
| of all Europe: 'And the prince of Monaco returns
; to his States. In IMI lt was further decided that
the existing relations between Franc* and Monaco ,
should cease, and thal thenceforth tba Kin. of
Sardinia was to play the par: In the principality
I formerly played by the House of Bourbon. Then. In

powers of giving un asylum to professional gam?

Prance did not wish to 'Interfere In the Inti mal

"An Idea of what colossal sums of money arel,.st
, In Monaco can be gathered from the last report of

Cercle des Etrangers.' the gambling society. The

a Hebrew lady, receives a yearly allowance of I.SO.

I all the Government expenses of the principality, at?
tends to the cleaning of the streets and provides Ihe
water-works and lighting of the public thorough?

taxes or Other levlea to pay. but lt has also nod?
ing to say regarding public affairs. Th.- society
pays 250.'*"". francs annually to th** theatre, the
public orchestra costs as much more, hihI tba
officials of the society, Including over 1"0 croupiers,
cost annually over 1.600,(100 francs. Jo the press
