Pledged to neither1 Sect nor Party,
But established for the benefit of all.
SATURDAY, MARCH 31, 1888.
There have been, nt different
times, in the past, outcriss against
the Executive for transferring roo
nei's from one appropriation to an
other, and for overdrawing amounts
appropriated. Undoubtedly there
has been goodgiound for complaint,
although perhaps the uproar created
has bcon sometimes greater than the
All respecters of tho law will
agree that it is the duty of the Min
isters to obey the Appropriation Act
to the letter, if possible, and to
keep all expenditures within its pro
visions; but it must be admitted
that if circumstances arise which
imperatively require a larger ex
penditure than the Legislature has
provided for, and if a strict adher
ence to the Appropriation Act is
distinctly detrimental to the public
service, the Executive is justified in
exceeding the appropriation, draw
ing for that purpose from any sur
plus that may be in the treasury, or
if the treasury is without a surplus,
securing a temporary loan. Not
only is the Government justified in
doing so, but that is its plain duty
in such cases, the proper after
course being to apply to the Legis
lature for its sanction, at its next
meeting, by the passage of an in
demnity bill. An intelligent Legis
lature can scarcely be so perverse
as to withhold its approval of un
authorised expenditures that are
clearly shown to have been really
It would appear that our Govern
ment finds in certain cases that the
amounts appropriated are instifll
cient, and that by confining itself to
the Appropriation Act the public
service will suffer. In one case
there is no appropriation at all.
Two of tho Associate Justices of
tho Supreme Court, Judge Bickerton
and Judge Dole, have, wo under
stand, received no salaries since the
commencement of the year, because
theic is no appropriation for that
purpose. liiose gentlemen can
probably afford to wait, and for any
thing we know to the contrary are
perfectly willing to do so, but their
salaries should have been paid when
due, appropriation or no appropria
tion, and the Executive, in our
opinion, would have been well
within its discretionary powers in
In the matter of offering a
reward for the capture or discovery
of an atrocious murderer, the Attorney-General
has abstained from
doing so, because the appropria
tion under the head from which
money for such purposes is drawn,
has been exhausted. "We surely
think the discovery and capture of a
murderer of sufficient public con
cern to warrant the overdrawing of
the appropriation if necessary for
that end. No one can tell who next
may fall a victim to the same as
sassin as long as he is at liberty.
Now another matter comes up.
It is said, and we believe truty, that
the tugboat Eleu has about exhaust
ed the appropriation for her running
expenses, and that if the appropria
tion be not overdrawn the tug can
not continuo operations much longer.
Everybody knows that the tuc; is an
absolute necessity, and must be
kept going; and therefore it is a
proper thing for the Government to
keep her going, even if it does take
moro money than the Legislature
Lot not our readers run away
with the impression that wo advo
cate excessive expenditures, or favor
a systematic departure from the
Appropriation Act, but simply this,
and nothing more that when an ex
penditure in excess of tho appropri
ation is urgently needed in tho in
terest of the public good, the Gov
ernment does its duty in taking upon
itself the responsibility of incurring
the additional liability, and that the
threo instances cited arc of this par
ticular nature. Exception may bo
taken to the first, on the ground that
tho judges continuo to perform their
duties, notwithstanding the delay in
getting their stipends; but the
same argument docs not apply to
tho other two.
Two years ago AVclshens &
McEwon, plumbers and gas-litters,
of Omaha, Neb., inaugurated profit-sharing.
At tho end of eight
months tho firms divided $1,100
among its thirty vaoxx.
" J l"
CABINET AHD PRIVY COUNCIL.
A brief news item appealed in
this paper a couple of days ago, to
the effect that talk was in circula
tion of tho Government having suf
fered defeat in a lCBoltttion intro
duced by it to the Privy Coun
cil that day ; and such tens the talk.
"Defeat," perhaps, was hardly the
proper word to use. It would be
more correct to sa that the Privy
Council declined to assume the res
ponsibility of appropriating tho
money asked, simply because the
Council did not consider it a case
within its province.
This is how we understand the
matter: The nppiopiiation for tho
running expenses of the tugboat is
run out, and money will be required
to keep her at work until the Legis
lature meets and makes new appro
priations. Under these circum
stances the Ministry asked tho
Privy Council to sanction the neces
sary expenditure, under Article 15
of the Constitution, which provides
for the drawing of money from the
Public Treasury without the consent
of the Legislature, between sessions,
in the emergencies of war, invasion,
rebellion, pestilence, or other pub
lic disaster, with tho concurrence of
all the Cabinet, and of a majority of
the whole Privy Council. The Privy
Council not thinking that any of
these emergencies arc involved in
the tugboat question, and believing
that it is purely a matter for the
exercise of Ministerial discretion,
preferred to leave the responsibility
with the Cabinet.
We may add, that, in our opinion,
the Privy Council did the correct
thing, although the reference of the
matter to it by the Government may
indicate a commendable disposition
on the part of the latter not to ex
ceed its authority. As stated else
where, this is clearly a case in which
the Executive should shoulder the
responsibility of providing ways and
means until the Legislature meets.
"We would still further add that
the impression which prevails in
certain quarters that the earnings of
the tug should be suflicient to pay
her expenses, is entirely aside from
the question. These earnings arc
paid into the Treasury as "Govern
ment Realizations," and can be
drawn out in the regular way only.
No matter how great the earnings,
they are not directly available.

Many glowing piomises were

the question : How many have been

any good? I have reference spe

have the Chinese ever done that the
preference is given them by a Gov
