Jules Kocbe, former minister of commerce France, made some caJicuiations as to the cost of a 'big Eliiopean war. He took as the basis the expense Incurred by France dur- Ing tte war of 1878, and he reckoned, that, assuming, for the sake of ex- ample that the sli nations of the Triple .Alliance and the Triple En- tente went to war, the cost of main taking the armies alone would be n less .than a month, with "but taking into account the other es penses. One is staggered at the huge sum which the present campaign will con Earae. And it may. be taken that th authorities are. not very far out ii arriving at the figures quoted.
