A Washington. June 19. dispatch
says: Secretary Root today mude an
swer to the senate resolution of April
li cnlling for information as to the
cost of the war in the Philippines. It
Is shown that $50,000 was advanced
for the expenses of the Philippine com
mission originally from the United
States treasury, but this amount after
wards was reimbursed out of the Phil
Ipp ne treasury. For railroad transpor
tation of troops and supplies to and
from the Philippines since the pence
(cLU8 ratlfl-'l H'e cost lias been
4 MM.44S.
Reports from the arlous bureau of
ficers are submitted to show the cost
or the Philippine, war. Including out
standing obligations, showing thnt the
total up to date is $170..12(;.r1Sfi.
Large quantities of valuable prop
erty, such as ships, lighters, etc..
horses and mules, wagons and harness,
clothing, enulppago and ordnance,
medical, signal and engineer supplies
the cost of which is Included In the
foregoing statement, still remain on
hand In the Philippine Islands for use.
Parts of these supplies are already be
ing resblpped to this country.
A large part of the expense during
the nst year, the secretary says,
should not properly be t rented as oc
fasloned by military operations In tho
Philippine Islands, for the reason that
it consists of pay and maintenance of
troops which we would have had to
pay and mnlntnln. whether they were
in tho Philippines or not.
Opponent to Sale of I)anl-li Went Indie
Artlm In Denmark.
The opponents of the sale of the
Danish West Indies to the United
States are again active, but privately
they admit that they are meeting with
HttlH success, say a Copenhagen dis
patch. The response to the appeal for
runds to aid in the movement in oppo
sition to the sale was decidedly weak
The meetings are held secretly, but
beyond n few politicians, they have
mostly been attended by business men
interested in tho proposed stenrrishlp
line to the island of St. Thomas. The
government discountenances the nntl
snle aultntlon. The Danish West Indies
treaty will bo a prominent issue of
thci.nmpalgn preceding tho elections

Then the hair should be snndpnpcrctl
