WHO WILL FOOT WAR COST?
M. Paul Leroy-Beaulieu, one of the
most eminent French economists, ex
presses himself in these terms in
speaking of the relative influences of
Russia and England iir China:
"Each successive day, every rail laid
in Manchuria increases the Russian
influence, and the sort of fascination
which the czar exercises at Peking.
His power henceforth is without rivalry.
"England must be stricken with a
veritable dementia, to attach to her
foot Xhe South African chain, at nn
hour so serious for her future in the
extreme east. How much more her
Asiatic interests must be important to
her than the possession of the sterile
plateaus, which smuggle ephemeral
gold mines, and where she loses at
this moment, besides thousands of
men and millions of money, a precious
opportunity which she will never re
cover. Her people recognize this at
the same time that they delude them
selves with the vain hope of restoring
it.' It ie too l'ater and the place is

prosecuting in Sduth Africa is going

Pire Alarm That Gives Particular.
A fire alarm recently invented i3 a
combination of the graphophone and
telephone. In the use of the talking
ilarm one of the graphophone machines
is placed on each floor of a building
and connected with the telephone fire
alarm system. For each machine a rec
ord is prepared. 3?or instance thp
graphophone on the second floor of a
building would contain the record:
"There is a fire on the second floor,"
etc. This record is then adjusted so
that these words are repeated into the
telephone by the expanding of a ther
mostat whenever a fire occurs. In thia
yay the origin of a fire is located imme
diately and automatically. The alarm
also lights the electric lights in the
building, sets a red light blazing in
front of the building to guide the fire
men and sounds the alarm into the
street through n giant megaphone so
we are told. Science Sittings.

students of public affairs, addresses
us to-day upon the more special prob
lem of the taxation inrolved by the
war, says the London Times. The pre
cise amount of new taxation required
is, of course, doubtful. Some of the
data are obviously imperfect and must
so remafn for some time to come, while,,
on the other hand, there is room for
some difference of opinion, upon the
question of how the necessary expendi
ture, whatever it may be, should be di
vided between capital and revenue.
Wie need not, theref ore, pin. ourselves
to particular ngures. It suffices for
the moment to let the figures remain
avowedly provisional and to deal with
principles. There is one great dis
tinction to be drawn at the outset
between expenditure directly due to
the war and expenditure arising out
of the lessons the war has taught ub.
The expenditure directly due to the
war ought to- be and must be, as Sir
Michael Hic&s Beach has already in-
The United States paid $7,200,000 f or
Alaska, and last year it yielded $5,831,
355 in gold and silver alone. These fig
ures are given by the statistician of the
mint. The increase over the precious
metal product of 1898 was $3,187,068;
Until last year most of the gold and
silver obtained in Alaska came from
the quartz mines near Juneau, and
most of the vast increase of last year
came from the new fields of Cape Nome.
It amounted to about $2,400,000, says
the New York Herald.
From present indications the next
three months will witness an increase
of 80,000 in the mining population of
the territory. Most of them will go
to the rich auriferous placers of Cape
Nome, and miners of long experience
say that the gold output of the present
year from Alaska will equal that of
One of the vestrymen of a prosper
ous Detroit church went to call on a
prominent member. He-would not be
home for 15 or 20 minutes, and the
vestryman, amen fond of horses, en
tertained himself by a visit to the
stables. He found the man in charge
trying to sell a cob that had seen his
best days, and the best had been none
too good. But he had an advocate
worthy of a better cause, say8 the De

in- the heat of the discussion the

for the purpose of thinking the thing
over, the vestryman had a talk.
