The pronenesK of the legislators to vote for extension bills is generally explained by the idea that they do so in order to wiu the votes of those who are benefited by the extension. If that be so, they ought to lose the votes of those who pay their taxes within the legal time limit. If prompt taxpayers should take this course they would forever put an end to tax extensions, for they are in a majority and could soon teach legislators that it is not politically profitable to cater to tax delinquents. Brussels proposes to mark the opening of the new century by holding a competition for the best show window among the stores. BUSINESS NOTICES.
