For even if the hos- mot tilities were terminate], the expen- plat see would evidently not cease for veni some time to come. The mainten- wor extr ance of the army until peace can be xor established and order restored in theO ('uba and Porto Rico and the Phil- the lippines will mean the outlay of a iug large amount of money; and, a. this han outlay was greater during the month eviT of July than in the preceding the months, by reason of the more ex- are tensive mobilization of troops, so a sp the same reason is it sure to be still side greater for the month of August clea and probably also for the month of of t September. esti The visible expenses ul, to the the present time, it has been given out imr by the treasury, amount to almost ate $100,000,000; but it is certain. that of t this sum represents only a fraction qui of what will have to be paid before Evi the *"bill" has been settled. Even ste vat now there are running contracts of which will call for the expenditure Th of quite $50,000,000 over and sepl above the -disbursements already vid are made; and expert calculators at the lie treasury have figured it out that, on de, the-supposition of the termination per of hostilitaes now, the cost of the he war fro!n its beginning to the final 1110 crystilization of its results, will have raI stood the United States in the good- 10o ly sum of at least $300,000,000. by If the expenses reach no higher PL figure than $300,000,000-and the rat treasury experts have made a fairly a c liberal calculation in naming that Iel sun.--there will I,e not any trouble in meeting them and paying the last in( dollar due, before the current fiscal n" year has expired. For, as our readers know, the treasury has taken tel in $200,000,000 from the recent w saleof bonds, and the new war-tax sy which went into operation last month will yield quite $8,000,000 per mouth-perhape a quarter-mil lion more; and the piroduct of this tax will thus just about reach $100, 000,000 by the end of the fiscal year. Whether the war tax will be dis- t continued when it has answered its pa immediate purpose, is uncertait. - As everybody knows, it is an im mensely easier thitg to get a tax i imposed than to get it repealed; and imposts which go under the name of war taxes have, above all other classes ofimposts, a faculty for fe sticking. And, besides, when the hostilities have been finally wound up, we shall own a somewhat ex tended territory, the government of which will call for some extra e expenditure; so that even when the war ends it is possible enough S that the war-taxation will survive. o If indeed there be no other need for I. it, the politicians will keep it going o that there may be an available same thing into which they may pluinge o, their hands at will. Mr. D). C. Byne In a communication In the St. Martinvilte Messenger is c pretty hard on round dancing. We clip a small portion of his communica tion, which reads : "'I shall not hesitate to say that in stead of ilancing now it is an open em brace often worse.- Here one sees a l young woman fairly lying in a gentle aam's arsa. She has her arms about his eek sad be with his round her wais.

Provi addition to its rolling stok, k in m;ien' lwhich the constr'ilCtlto of a tir:t- be thl class railway coach is brought 'well nigh to perfection. \I The company has jiust ilaced 1al IeC twenty-six of these new cotaches on roI n the systenm, and it is no exagggera- Ie e lion to say that in artistic worknall- tlle d ship. in cll npleteness of details, iiin trs their appoint nente, and in tidh andIl they surpass anvything of the kind Millb that has hitherto been seen on a bah Canadain railw ay, inl fact, it is Tlu doubtful whether their superior be .e may lie found on any railway in th of nit world. The new coaches are veri- due table palaces on wheels, and the elect, work done at the (;rand Trunk purpi workshops retlects thie highest credit ions on Canadian skill and workmanship. In ci The new cars are of the vestibulle we t order, sixty-two feet long, with six olttce wheel trucks for smooth running, StICce and Westinghouse quick action triple note brakes and air signals. The first feature that strikes the ,pasenger oil ,n th getting otn the car is the peculliar provi construction of the platiormn, which servi is madle of steel with coverings for i, Vi tilhe steps, so that the wholtle plat- .lre'a form can be arranged to form a ves- listtt tibule. By tills means dust and foul air are excluded, and all dang- Th er to passengers on the ptlatforml re elect moved. A powerful light over the Pres platform is all unlusulal and very con- Trea venient appointment. The interior nd[ I work and linishing of the cars are boar extremely beautiful, The wood- . qltirw work is of fillisled ,ahogaty, and ani r the car, which is nmuch longer than win the ordinary first class coach, seat- I e. ing with comifort 72 passengers, is in a handsomely upholstered. the The comfort of the passengers is TI evidently the first consideration in or tl the arragement of the seats, wlii tre - are adjustable, that is, by means of tlor a spring they can be turnedfrom one Ilsai I side to the other, while the backs of wlit the seats can be easily removed for be B cleaning purposes. To the lovers InoV f of the fragrant weed the most inter- orde eating feature of the coach will he tilie e the commodious and luxurious i let smoking room that has been pro- I Pro vided for their use. It is a separ- Rin ate enclosed apartmtent t at ole endtl it t of the car, where they mnay enjoy a MtI i quiet smoke without interruption. 1 j \ e Even to the most minute details Jam such as tile arrangement of the pri vate appartments of the con venlence s of the passenger has been studied. e The closets are self flushing, and i d separate lavatories have been pro- oft vided for the ladies. Improvements tlia are noticiable in the smalles'. details. and e Hereafter when a weary passenger n1 desires to arrange a blind, his tent-i sa n per wil not be so sorely tried that he will be ilnclined to use languagle yol i ilore forcible than elegant. The abi Iall bearings of tile blinds are so ar ranged that they will stop at any , At J Ipoint desired. 'Ilhe cars are heated ldt8 by steam, and lighted by the t Pulntsch gas. The ventilating ar ie rangelment are ample, anil satls factory, and everything about the y coaches wears an air of ease and M at I elegance. le On the whole the new coaches ate the st models of modern constructive skill, da, al and the Grand Trunk by suchl ir- yna provements show that its manage- pa ur neat is actuat , d li a elIirit of en-d en terplrise all I prlogress, whIich agurlls col Iut well for Canadn's iionlleer railtway ,La ax system.-tMonttreal Star. ,o 00 C HA-L TE R At il- di is EAST CARROLL CHABITABLE ', ASSOCIATION, ! al State of Louisiana.
