(New York World Ca blegram Special TelegTam.) "Children, would you rather go to war for your Easter vacation or visit the St. Louis ex position?" the Matin quotes an American paterfamilias as asking. In that newspaper and the Figaro are articles which assort that the dead walls of Han Francisco are placarded with posters of rival tourist, concerns, which read like this: "War Excursions, Trip to Witness a Great Modern Rattle;" "Power ful Searchlights for Viewing Night En counters;" "Safest Bteamers, P.est Handled on the Pacific Ocean; Passengers Can Boo Everything Without tho Slightest Risk." The children, of course, according to these stories, choose to see the war, because there Is more chance for a noise. The writers conclude that tho attendance at the exposition will suffer through the rivalry of the counter attraction so handy to America, "Just across the Pacific."

It la gravely asserted that the excursion promoters and Insurance companies are coining money.
