The first election of Greater New York will cost more than any municipal election In history , according to the New York World. It will cost ) enough to feed the entire city four days. The aggregate , even that portion tion which can be estimated , represents a great fortune It Is divided between that which Is expended bj the city and county In conducting the election and the expendi tures of those organizations which are sup porting the \arlotis tickets. Thi test of this ccie day ceremony repre sents enough to run some good-sized cities for a year. Tammany Is the organization whoso campaign fluids can be most easily estimated. Tammany has not yet made Its assessments for this campaign , but will within a few days. In the light of past experiences the fol lowing estimates were furnished of prelim inary afsessments by a man familiar with the finances of the Hall : County Ticket 1'our coroners , $1,000 ; two city court Judges , $2,000 ; two supreme court Judges , $10,000 ; register , $3,000 ; sheriff , $5,000 ; district attorney , $5,000 ; mayor , $10,000 ; comptroller. $7,500 ; president of the council , $40,000. Colonel Iluppert resigned his nomination for the latter office because ho could not stand the high assessment. Randolph Guggenhelmer , slated to succeed him , Is associated professionally with many corporations. His assessment will probably not bo as much aq Colonel Ruppert declined to give He has the power to appoint com mittees which may give away or demand pay for franchises or other public privi leges. From other sources not mentioned under oath the Tammany city campaign commit tee expects to raise that amount to $100,000. Richmond and Queens will pay their own expecees Thatl is all they are asked to do Richmond's will run to $15,000 and Queens will use about $21,000. Kings county ex pects to raise about $50,000 for Its county ticket. Tammany will want from thirty-five as semblymen , thirty-five aldermen and fifteen members of the council about $1 000 each That Is a conservative estimate , making a total of $85.000. These contributions do not come direct from the candidates. They and their friends secure as much money as pos sible and the district makes up the odd dollars lars In Kings county the corresponding offices will co-it less , only about $40,000. The Tammany campaign committee will distribute a grand total of about $275,000. The Low forces had already wicnt $27,000 In the preliminary canvass for votes , rent and other expenditures necessary to organization , up to the time of Seth Law's acceptance of the nomination. The Cltl/ens1 union Is sparing no effort or expense to enlighten voters and the cost of literature and Its distribution will be fully $20,000. They expect also to spend $25,000 on the speaking tiortlon of the campaign. Other expenses will bring the figure up to about $125,000 The republican party will have more money to spend tlan ever. There are many big moneyed Interests Involved In this campaign Among the followers of Freddie Glbbs , Jake I'dtterson , Abe Gruber and John Relsenweber H Is talked this will be the richest harvest since Quay carried New York In 1888 Re publican city ticket candidates are not In a position to be assessed highly and their con tributions will represent only a small poitlon of the grand total. A moinbo- the state committee says that ca-h of the big committees on city elections would spend $100.000. at a conservative esti mate For atflemblymen and aldermen he- added , the average would be $1,000 per office Some might bo $5,000 , and even $10,000 has been spent for one of these posts In Drooklyn. where the hottest fights will come In the republicans ranks , well Informed people say the city committee will raise $50.000 , and the stakes aio worth It Thu republicans In Queens and Richmond will spend as much as the democrats There are but few assembly districts In New York county that Mr Qulgg does not expect to carry , and money will bo spent freely Altogether the republican county committee experts to handle about $75,000 , Henry George's following doesn't expect 10 have the money to run any such campaign as this If they are able to raise $50.000 the leaders will bo doing well , they say Some of them expect this bum will be doubled by contributions from the Dry an following In the south and west who arc anxious for the effect of George's success on the Chicago platform following Then there Is Patrick Glcason , who hae announced that ho will rpcnd $10,000 and needs no more Ho Is wealthy , and , with lilt friends the chances are ho will spend not less than $25000 The campaign organizations will put In circulation $750000 Tammany. $275.000 , re publican $250.000.

So strong was the feeling agilmt those who had anything to do with nairo troops along nbaut that time that grave fears were enter tained for his safety , but ho was forwarded to General Johnson's headquarters , at Vlcks- burg , under a strong military escort Ar rived there , the yoblcm was how to convey the captured leidcr through to Richmond without exciting mob violence to such an extent as to prove fatal to General Dow , against whom public feeling was fco high all along the route , whl-h lay through the strong est of slavery states. "I remember as well as If It were yesterday the appearance ot Dow when I first saw him at Vlcksburg.

"Hurriedly we dressed , and iby the aid of the landlord left the hotel quietly by a real door , and hurry lag away we remained con cealed while the mob searched the prem- ices "The landloid so managed the crowd as to throw them off the scent , and early In the morning when the train started north wo slipped Into a car and were soon speedIng - Ing toward Richmond "We went along well enough until we arrived at a town In North Carolina , I do not recall the name just no& , where an other mob was gathered , ' th6 news of our coming having preceded us , but by putting on a bold front and acting as though wo were ordinary travelers , wo threw them off the scent , jnd were soon on the wing flirnln.

AMERICAN ENTERPRISE. A great howl of protest went up from the London newspapcts this month when they dlscoveied that the contrac's for construct ing and equipping the new underground electric belt line , which Is to lure all cJin- mutera away from the sooty , choking , coal- ted engine tunnels had been given to Yan- Iteo firms. The tunnels themsclvob are being boied by American engineers and contractors and all the rolling stock and rails are to be Imported from the United States Reporters were sent to ask the dlioctors of the road why In the name of pattlotlsm they had not expended -their money , which will total sev eral millions , In the home market The re ply was tint the contracts had bc pn adver tised to bo awarded to the lowest bidders , and Americans In every instance had undci- bid the English manufacturers Theoo business defeats worry English statesmen acutely , and the newspapers consume - sumo many columns In trying to explain the icason of them An explanation Is easy for an American who Keeps hl eyes open , and It is because the secret of the com mercial success of the newer world lies so plilnly In s.ght that the Englishman blindly ftumblcs ovei It while he Is trying to find some occult complications of political econ omy to explain It. An American blghtbcer who is taking things easily and starts out fiom his hotel at U 30 o'clock in the morn ing notices with surprise thut the shopkeep ers are Just sweeping out their places and taking down their shutteis He remembers that storekeepers at home have already been at work two hours. If he happens to get an early stare and wants to buy a hat or have his hair cut , he finds that he Is unable to do so. The whole secret of the superiority of American business men is In first princi ples , not 'In any machinery of political econ omy they work harder and more iutelli- gentlyr. Hours of work here nro shorter , nor do the men attend so strictly to business during those hours BEER AND I-UCCY. English worklngmen get much smaller wages than their American brethren , but If their wagds are reckoned by the day It strikes an outsider that they are paid all they earn A posse of London day laborers "working , " the word Is applied by courtesy to their movements. In a ditch or on a build , ing , is a sight to bring tears to thci eyes of a New York contractor. More than half the men appear to be engaged at any given time In filling their pipes. Most of the remainder are devoting themselves to beer. Heer seems to be the chief element of a London work- ingman's existence. If they are not drinking beer It Is because they have Just sent for moro beer or are discussing ways and means of beer. Deer Is altogether the most striking characteristic of the lower strata of Eng lish life. The "bus driver , when he tells you that something happened to some king on the particular street on which you are navigating the fog , breathes beer , the re spectable looking matron who sells you a morning paper at the corner stall exhales beer , even the blind beggar with six starv ing children reeKs beer from bis pores and shufllcs off with your penny to the nearest "pub" In the Intervals between beer and tobacco the Englishman devotes hlnihCif to tea. Tea is a stated feast occurring at 5 o'clock. Just as the Mohammedan wherever he may be falls on his knees at noon for prayei , the Englandcr lo the palace , the drawing room , the golf links , the cricket field , the olllcc or the shop , when the clock strikes 5 , drops whatever he may be doing to drink tea. Work and p'ay are practically paralyzed throughout the Hrltlsh empire for thirty minutes dally beginning at 5 p in. BOUND BY TRADITION. In addition to his slowness the English man Is hidebound In buslnes bv traditions. There Is an old servant in the Savage club' ' who lights a fire in the smoking room every morning. He was told to start one when ho came to the club 1ml : a century ago , and as no one has ever told him not to build one , he has made it a past of his dally routine since that first morning. Ho Is not paid to think These traditions are charmingly picturesque hut they earn no dividends Every evening at sunset a com pany of forty b Idlers from ono of the gov ernment barracks marches Into the Hank of England , where Its men do guard duty un til sunrise , when they are marched out again. The lleutorant In command Is pro vided with a luxurious sleeping room In the bank and on his departure every morning Is handed one gold sovereign as a gratuity foi his services "The old lady of Thread- needle street" Is equipped , of course , wllh modern fire proof and burglar proof safes and might bo accoutcreil with buiglar alarms and all the appliances for protection made possible by electricity , but .

"Wo always hive" Is the stereotyped answer. "Whv diTyou wrlto with a quill pen' " Is another of the 'whys' which the American pokes at the Englishman whenever ho sits down to a desk opposite ono. "Every Englishman u cs a quill pen" Is the explnrntlon to this mystery. "Could you not write moro easily with n steel pen' " "I dire siy" ( livllffeiently ) . Considerations of utility are as dust in the balance against the fact tint the quill has been , from time Immemorial , In the hand of tlio English gcntlomin DON'T KNOW A GOOD THING. There Is not a typewriting machine In a London newspaper olllco , so far as the oh- sc'vatlon of the writer can testify Thel * us0 would degrade journalism. It Is doubt ful if the typcsetUis would waive tholi dignity to reid such machine-made stuff , oven If editors would stoop to feed them with It The London press agencies have all the copy they supply to the newspapers dupli cated by writing on pads with a stylus , a slow , long drawn-out agony in the produc tion , an Illegible scrawl Is the result. Al most every page which goes to the composi tors in a modern American newspaper ofllce is typewritten , but to ask an English Joimallst to operate i machine In the prep aration of his soporifics would bo a distinct affront No gentleman could do that , you Know Hut since the motto of nn English newspipct Is never to print tolay what can bo deferred until tomorrow It does not sc n uch matter.

Yankee patent medicines have , however , monopolized the trade. During the Jubilee one specific , whose middle letters are VR , blazed on eveiy street at night. Loyal eyes were at first caught by the apparent display 01 tne mono- giam of her most gracious majesty ; then they discovered in smaller letters , much smiller , the rest of iho vvoid. Their sense of the proprieties were outraged , but they remembered the name , and will carry It In their minds for a long time HOW AMERIICAN. In a London newspaper ofllce on a recent night the managing editor gathered his staff about him to listen to a "good one. " lie hold aloft and read a message from the London correspondent of a New York newspaper. It was "Can you tell me where I can find a good shorthand man lo- nlghf" The manager repeated In a bewildered way , "Tonight , " and all his assistants shouted In amazement , "Tonight , " and the manager murmured , "How cxtiaordinaiy' ' " and finally , "How American1" There h another side of the picture , however - over , that Is the lritlcher's ) point of view.
