Paris) The heavy military expense thrust
upon Switzerland, by it being obliged to
support an armed neutrality was almost
the sole subject considered today by thej
Swiss Parliament. At the eenclusion of
the sitting a recess was taken until
March next. The Swl treasury it wa
announced must provide for' a deficit ol
43,000,000 francs. Taxes were doubled
upon alcohol and were Increased upon
checks,, postal orders, telephones; state
railway tickets and' freight shipments.
Proposals to establish, a state tobacco
monopoly and direct tAxes upon property
for war purposes were deferred until '
March.' The government proposed an In
crease In the charge' for carrying news
papers by post, but owing to the united
opposition or tne press or tne country
the government withdrew the" bill.
Commercial depression exists "through
out Bwitxerland partly because the whole
system of hotel nd other com-enlcnces
