' The Philadelphia Times says: "It is estimated that Great Britain has spent more than a billion dollars on the war with the Boers. An interesting fact Is the Increasing cost of war. The wars of Napoleon for thirteen years cost France a billion dollars. The four years of civil war in the United States cost four billions, or a dozen times more per year than Napoleon's cost France. Now Great Britain has spent in three years on a small war as much as Napoleon spent in thirteen years in a series of great wars. This, too, without the use of her navy or contact with a great power."

The sentiment in favor of the resolution vas so overwhelming that there was no opposition and no roll-call. This is the fourth time that tho house of representatives has by a more than two thirds voto declared itself in favor of this reform, but on three occasions the amendment has been killed in the senate. It must not be killed again. The house is elected by a direct vote; it comes fresh from the people; it represents the almost unanimous desire of the people for an opportunity to vote directly for United States senators. Will the senate dare to stand in the way of this great reform? Are the senators afraid to risk a re election at .the hands of the people themselves? Do they depend upon mone...
