Though appar ently the German plan of battle has been changed and Paris now does not appear to be in any danger of siege, the time when the Kaiser's troops menaced the French capital and were within a few miles of the Paris forts served to remind the people very viv idly of the former siege of Paris by the Germans in the Franco-Prussian war in 1870-71. There are today in Paris thousands of people who remember the former siege, and to them the feverish activ ity of a few weeks ago when tons of provisions were massed in the city and herds of cattle grazed in the Bois de Boulogne, were pregnant with memories. On Sept. 2, 1870 Macmahon surren dered at Sedan and Napoleon III, and an army of 81,000 officers and men be came prisoners of war. That catas trophe brought down the empire and two days later the provisional govern ment was set up in Taris.

In view of the fact that the sum of $250 000 is to be paid on the state debt on Oct. 1, the state treasurer Is drawing rather heavily on the state deposito ries for funds to meet the payment. The money must be in New York Oct. 1, and must come from the treasnry, as the sinking fund of the state has dwindled away to less than $100. State Treasurer Hickerson realizes that the banks sorely need this mon ey just at this time, but he has no al ternative In the matter, and will be compelled to draw in large sums at this time to meet the state's obliga tions. The treasury bank balance will not be burdensome, to say the least, after paying out this $250,000 October 1.
