EXPENSE OF THE WAR. feat
Times-Democrat: There are of tCett
coIn
course no accurate data on which to i mn
base an estimate of the entire cost the
to the country of the Ilispano- forn
American hostilities, even suppos- tibu
ing that the hostilities were to ter- fouer t
minate to-day. 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imposed than to get it repealed; and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.

In the St. Martinvilte Messenger is c
pretty hard on round dancing. We
clip a small portion of his communica

"'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. Then, agatin, as if she was
wearied by the long dance, or over

head ptly on his sboulder, and seems
ha the eaveth heaven."

of its pat'rons is shown by the latest ! 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

he will be ilnclined to use languagle yol
