THE APPROPRIATION BILL -III.
It should have been noted in our
remarks on tho Judiciary Depart
ment appropriations of tho past that
tho increase has been main by caused
by tho continuous improvements in
the salaries of tho Justices of tho
Circuit, Police and District Courts,
and by tho increased amount for ex
penses mado necessary by tho in
creased volume of business corre
sponding with tho increase in popu
lation. It is perhaps proper to state
our opinion that tho salaries of tho
Justices of tho Supremo Court may
not bo roducod, ovon by their own
consent, as tho provisions of tho
Constitution aro mandatory on tho
matter. And wo think thoy should
not establish a precedent, oven if
thoy aro willing, by giving or offer
ing to give that consent, as it may in
tho future bo held binding on their
successors or used in a way to seri
ously iutorforo with that independ
ence and freedom from political in
fluence of our Supreme Court, which
aro so sedulously ondoavorod to bo
established and uphold by our Con
stitutions from tho original down to
tho present day,
Wo will now proceed to tho next
Dopartmont on our list which is that
of Foreign Affairs. The appropria
tions mado in Section 1 of tho Bill
now before tho House foot up, as wo
previously showed, $1(U,GF0 as
against $217,345 for tho past period
an apparent reduction of $52,095.
This provides for a Minister at a
salary of $SXXX) for tho period, a
Secretary at $5000, $5100 for Clerks,
$12,000 for an Envoy at Washing
ton, $8000 for a Consul-Gonoral at
San Froucisco and $5000 for his
clerical aid and exponsos, $1000 for
tli roe diplomatic and consular ex
ponsos, $-1000 for expenses of For
eign Agents, $12,000 to send t ho Baud
to Chicago and to distribute litera
ture at tho World's Fair, $1000 for
state entortainmonts, $.'1000 for ollico
incidentals, $1200 for a mossonger,
$50,000 for tho Queen's Guard, $31,-
OoO for tho Band, $2000 for flags and
salutes, and $6000 for tbo preserva
tion and arrangomont of Govern
ment archives and preparing a Ha
waiian Bibliography. ,
Tho apparent reduction of $02,6
is mado up of tho following items:
a i eduction of $1000 or 10 percent
from tho Minister's salary; $1000 or
16 percent from tho Secretary's sal
ary; striking out an itotn of $2000
for clerical aid and expenses at
Washington, tints making tho posi
tion of tho highest and most import
ant representative of tho country
abroad of lower value than that of
his commercial subordinate at San
Francisco; reducing tho item of
state ontortaintnonts $0000 or 60 por
cont; striking off $12,000 or IS) por
cent from tho appropriation for the
Queen's Guards, and $li),S)o0 or 28
percent from tho appropriation for
Band, Hags and salutes; and, count
ing tho appropriations for tho ox
ponsos of foreign agents and tho
World's Fair as ono against that for
tho last poriod for tho same objects,
viz.: Exponsos of Foroigu Agents
ami tho Paris Exposition, striking
off $1000 from this item; omitting
altogether tho appropriations in tho
last poriod of $10,000 for tho educa
tion of Hawaiian youths abroad, and
?000 for tho roliof and return of in
digent Hawaiians; and tho non
insortion of airy similar appropri
ations to tho following, which woro
insortcd in last poriod but have not
boon required this poriod, viz.: $4245
for tho claims of C. C. Moreno and
A. W. Herring, and $2500 for aid to
volunteer military companies now
abrogated bj' law. Tho othor appro
print i diis aro tho samo in name and
amount for both periods. Thoso re
ductions amount to $58,095, against
which must bo sot off tho increase
caused by tho now item of $0000 for
tho preservation of government ar
chives, leaving tho balance, $52,095.
It will bo seen from what has been
stated abovo that $21,745 of this
amount is not duo to actual reduc
tion, but is caused by tho omission
of objects previously appropriated
for, leaving $30,950 to tho credit of
tho Legislature's desire for retrench
ment which thoy have partly offset
by making an appropriation of $0000
for an ontiroly now purpose. Tho
reductions mado may be classified
as follows: $25,950 off tho expendi
ture for tho Military and Baud,
$2000 off salaries, $2000 by making
tho Minister's post at Washington
worthl ess than his commercial subor
dinate's at San Francisco, $1000 less
for agents in foreign countries, and
$0000 loss for ontertaining distin
guished guests and othor state func
tions. It will bo remembered that
tho reduction in tho amount for tho
band caused a strike of the band
btrys at tho timo it was passed which
was only got over by tho then Min
ister promising to have tho amount
of reduction materially lessened on
tho third reading of tho bill, so that
oven this small reduction of $30,950
will partly disappear boforo tho bill
is passed. Wo have mado no com
ments as to tho policy of tho various
reductions, leaving that for tho pres
ent to individual opinion, simply
pointing out tho nature of each and
its effect. Another factjto be remem
bered is that many of these amounts
simply represents tho limit which
tho Legislature has sot to Ministerial
expenditure for tho objects named,
snd it does not necessarily follow that
tho full amount appropriated will
Tho appropriations for Foroicru
Affairs including military matters
wore in 1800, $04,728.15; in 1872,
$94,100; in .1871, $07,070; in 1870,
$93,080.30; in 1878, $105,000; in 1880,
$133,100; in 1882, $259,700.50; in
1881, $245,934.80; in 1880, $320,818.34;
in 1888, $187,833.34. It will bo ob
served that the increase was steady
with tho oxcoption of 1874 from
1802 to 1880, but the proportion that
tho amounts for tho military (includ
ing Voluntoor Companies, Band,
Flags, Stilutos, Munitions of War,
etc.) boar to tho whole has shown a
rathor stoady docroaso, as will bo
seen from tho following. Thirty
two years ago the military items
footed up $10,528.15 or about 73 per
cent; twenty years ago, $08,000 or
about 72 percent, ten j-oars ago,
$122,200.50 or about 48 porcont; ris
ing' in 1880 (with $189,498.31) to
about 00 porcont, and, ovon in the
Reform regime in 1888 (with $114,
(XX)) to about (51 porcont of tho total
proposed appropriations in this
It may bo interesting to note that
in 1800 tho Minister's salary was
$8000 for tho poriod and remained
so until 1800 when it was incronsod
to $10,000, remaining at that until
1871 when it was reduced to $8000
again, and so remained until 1878
when it was again increased to $10,
000 and in 1880 was furthor in
creased to $12,000, remaining at that
until Docoinbor 31, 1887, when it
was again roducod to $10,000, at
which rato it has remained until tho
prosont time. Tho reduction to
$9000 was proposed by tho Wido

Thanksgiving Day on the
24th, are you prepared lor it ?
Back in New England, where
beans rank next in inipoitance
to a collegiate education,
there's more fuss made over
Thanksgiving than any other
day in the year. For a month
previous die turkeys are in
spected and the choicest set
aside to be fattened. The big
gest, yellowest pumpkin is
brought in from the field and
transformed into great, thick
pies pies which make the
mouth water just to look at
them. Did you ever spend
Thanksgiving day in Ver
mont? It's different from any
other place in the world. The
people there are sincere in
their thanksgiving; they go to
table and offer up thanks, not
oillv for the good thin us re
ceived but that the bad things
were no worse; they're thank
ful that the stones in the lot
on the side hill are still far
enough apart to let the sheep
nibble at the pasture; for the
abundant harvest they've had,
or would have had il it "wa'nt
for the drought," as the case
may be; and last, but not least
they're thankful that the
cider's just as hard as ever
A sermon in the morning, a
big dinner at noon and a chat
at night comprise a Thanks
giving day in New England.
Indigestion don't generally
come until the next day.
But the feature of die meal
is the cooking. The turkey is
cooked to a turn, the beans
are just right and the pie crust
is properly done. The New
Englander while adhering to
the laws laid down by the
Puritans, is nroirressive in
other respects. The Fischer
Steel Range meets with more
ready sale in the Northeastern
States' thin anywhere else in
the world because the people
insist upon their food being
well-cooked. It's the same
with some people here, they'd
go without anything rather
than part with their Fischer
Range. If you're thinking
about having ;t good Thanks
giving dinner think aain and
yet a rang'.' from us.
