M. Edmond Therv in the Econ
omiste Europeen says that the Eu.
ropean budgets have increased from
19,837,000,000 francs in 1891 to
19.090,000,000 francs in tGot. Of
this increase 3.263,000,000 has
gone into the armies and navies,
5.300,000.000 into the railways
posts, telegraphs, telephones and
public works and toe rest to various
services of the state. The military
expenses of Europe have risen from
4,612,000,000 in 1891 to 5,324.000,
000 in 1S96 and 7,875,000,000 in
1001. Of this last figure about
1,600,000,000 francs is represented
by the cost to England of the South
African war. In 1S91 the military
budgets of the dual alliance amount
ed to i,6oS,ooo,ooo francs and that
of the triple alliance to 1,457,000,-

increase in ten years of 32 per cent,
and the triple alliance 1,958,000,000
an increase of 34 per cent.
