Paris. June 2. (Copyright. li)-The
Chamber of Deputies this week again has
given way to the exuberance of youth.
That Is to say. Deputies of the Right hurled
insults at Deoutles of the Left, wjjo re
spondtd in kind. The principal scene of
this sort occurred In connection with the
validation of the election in Paris of M.
Syveton. a high school professor and Secre
tary General of tlio League cf La Patrle
Advantage of tha occasion was taken to
discuss the posters of the League, and the
question whether a candidate had any right
to represent his "rival as, a traitor In the
pay of a foreign Power. The Chamber
voted for an investigation.
Various Incidents of the session resulted
In seconds being sent, but 'no duel even
tuated. Parliamentary Eccentricities. .
It might be assumed that the minority
was seeking ,to overawe the majority by
Jjhyslcal violence. This would bs a bad

effect, if not increasing, at least of coag

majority will be expiated by the Congres
sionallsts. The machinery has been working under
our observation for five or six years past,
yet nobody will pay any heed to tho fact.
Such interest as is aroused by these
parliamentary eccentricities will disappear
when the Importance of the financial ques
tion becomes apparent. The budgetary de
ficit for next year very probably will
amount to more than J35.0Cv.O3O.
There Is a hard fact facta? the Cabinet.
' which Is askirnr for leisuro to study tho
budget and seek remedies ana palliatives,
and which will not present its estimates
until October next. As the Government
plan will Include swesplng reforms, and
certainly proposals for a loan, the Chamber
will have enough and to spare of financial
debates, and we shall have to expect sev
eral votes on account, which votes, for that
matter, possess a merely nominal draw
back. However, all these financial debates would
be simplified and consequently abbreviate!
greatly It tho Chamber would "stand for"
the gag which one of its members. M. Jules
Rochp. proposes by a scheme to restrict th
Initiative of Deputies in the matter of new
appropriations. This would be In accord
once with the British system, and In thU
respect, at least. Anglomania would be a
Senate Takes Cp Serious Work.
The Senate has tackled serious subjects
by opening the debate In the bill, reducing
the time of military service from three to
two years, and at the same time abolish
ing all dispensations. There has already
been a procsslon of orators."- some of
whom have lamented, almost with tears,
that France was about to undergo dis
armament. We heard all these same Jeremiads when
the term of military service was reduced
from seven to five years. We listened to tnrm
a second time when It was brought down
from five to three. The present Is conse
quently a third edition of the lamentations,
nnd we shall be subjected to a fourth when
the two years' term of military service la
reduced to one year. That day Will come
soon, for the French Bourgeolse will nevr
resign Itself to being the victim of the pend
ing military reform and seslne Its youns
men, who. thanks to their academic diplo
mas, only served one year with the col
ors, serving two years despite their diplo
mas. The march of human progress is In oppo
sition to any excess of military duty. Be
sides, the cases of Switzerland ana the
United States prove that armies, to be
rood, do not need to be standing armies.
and the example of the 16,000 Boer peas
ants, who have held 30.000 trained soldiers
In check. Is an answer in advance to tho
alarmist harangues of those admirers of
the past, who regret the disappearance of
the professional military man.
