On the face of things, the present
Balkan campaign promises to involve
very large expenses. It Is presumably
true that the Balkan states have ac
cumulated large supplies and armaments
beforehand. It Is certainly true that they
owns the railways whloh will transport
the troops and munitions, and that the
pay of a Balkan soldier Is Insignificant
If Indeed he has to be paid at all. Never
theless, food, ammunition, horses, camp
utensils must be bought; the railways
must be operated. We quoted In our
financial supplement, last Saturday, tho
estimate of the London Economist's
J'lenna correspondent that It will cost
Jttfcarla $100,000 per day merely to
bring Its 2,000 Infantry and cavalry
Into .action, and that the similar expense
for Servla will be $360,000. These figures
are quite possibly too high; but since

AUTOMOBILE AND RAILROAD
How the Former Affeots Passenger Revenue.
New York Sun.
It Is not surprising that the railroad
companies are beglntng to Inquire about
the effect of uutomobllo traffic upon
their passengers earnings. A standard
automobile travels at least a fast' as a
way train, and all highways, good, bad
and Indifferent are open to the touring
car and the runabout The owner of an
automobile count It among his advan
tages over tho non-owners that he is not
tied to a railroad; time tables are not
made for him whan he wishes to visit
any town or resort within a hundred mllei
of his homo. It may be as expensive to
travel tho distance in an automobile as to
go by train, but tho owner thinks more
of the comfort and Independence of his
private means of locomotion than of the
cost of It His Saturday afternoon and
Sunday trips are fixtures, und sometlmos

So, on the number of automobiles bought
for pleasuro Increases steadily, and even
rapidly, thoro- must bo a perceptible de
cline In the receipts at the railroad ticket
office. An Investigation made by the
Union Paelflo resulted In a report from
which tho following passage may be
"Out of fifty replies from agents on the
main line through Nebraska seventeen
did not think that automobiles had af
fected the earnings, while thirty-three
said that they had affected tho local reve
nue, the estimates as to the amount of
the effect varying from 'slightly' to '30
per cent of the local sales.' In Kansas
out of forty-five main line agents four
teen stated that the short haul business
was being seriously affected by automo
biles. In Colorado sixteen out of twenty-
seven agents estimated tho effect from
slight to one-third of the local business."
And as the use of automobile reduces
passenger receipts, so will tho motor truck
lower freight receipts, but In a less de
gree. However, there Is no occasion for
dismay In railroad offices; only the short
haul business Is affected, and In the fu
ture, na in tho past, the very great ma
Jorllw of peoplo ltvlntr along thp line of a
railroad will not be able to own. or use
automobiles. The dependence of the com
panies Is mainly upon their long haul
business, whether passenger or freight,
and upon more freight than passenger
business. How to make up tho loss oc
casioned by the growing use of automo
biles must be the study of the traffic
managers. Their trump card, of course,
would be Improved service, both as re
gards speed and .cheaper rates.

The world 1 Indebted to Andrew Car
negie for the most explicit and up-to-date
description of tho way to treat kings that
has come to light ln a long time. Of
course, tho old Idea of the divine right
ot kings was exploded years and years
ago. Thus, when Emperor William
boasted of a partnership with Providence,
the world irreverently gave vent to a
loud haw-haw and passed the story on
to the comlo supplement.
Nevertheless, we know It waa not Just
the proper thing when Introduced to a
real live king to slap him on the back
with the intelligent inquiry, "What d'ye
know, old sportT" Instlnotlvely, one feels
that a king, nurtured carefully and se
cluded from the rabble, should not be
Jostled on the throne, and that It Is not
good form to ask htm out to have a
On tho other hand, It Is hard for any
body to take the knee-breeches a and
courtly bow business very seriously.
Kings are human, and It must get on
their nerves to have a long stream ot
men and women bobbing up and down
and mumbling pretty phrases. There was
a general feeling that there must be a
sensible, offhand way to treat kings, but
it remained "for the laird of Sklbo to
coma forward with the plan. This Is the
way Andy say you hould act when you
find yourself In the presence of a king:
"The first and last thing Is to laugh.
I always do when I am ln the presence
ot a king. A a rule, the king doesn't
mind. He knows he la something of a
faker, and so he laughs with me."
Thus, we havo the true formula. The
minute the Introduction are over, one
should gtvo way to hilarious laughter,
ThlB will put the boot of embarrassment
on the other foot. Persons who are In
troduced at court Invariably feel embar
rassed, but If thoy laugh hard enough
at tho king, as though he were the fun
niest thing they had seen outside of a
circus, he, and not thoy, will bo forced
to blush and stand first on one foot and
then on the other. Thus equilibrium Is
restored, ond kings and common mortals
find themselves on a level.
