Treasurer Wrights Talks
of Depleted Public
LOAN BILL WILL NOT
WIPE OUT DIFFICULTY
Must Raise Revenue 'for Expenses or
Public Work Will Stop and
Salaries be Paid in
Treasurer WV H. Wright is looking
for nn Alexander Hamilton. It was
Hamilton, according to Daniel Web
ster, who In thfl dark days of the, early
history of the American Republic,
"smote the rock of, pab'llc credit," caus
Ing a flood .of revenue to leap forth.
Wright Is hunting for the rock tand will
smite It himself In the absence of a
Hamilton, trusting to -providence to
produce the golden stream so badly
needed by the almost bankrupt treas
ury of this Territory.
Since the suspension of paymentsqf
current expenses 'in' coin, In the latter
part of April. $JJ3,620.78 In warrants
have been registered at the Treasurer's
onicc, with no money in tho vaults to
later them. These wnrrants bear a
rate of 5 per cent Interest and are Uls
counted 3 per cept nt'tho banks.
The Treasury its running behind nt
the rate of (SO.000 per. month and the
date when the revenues from taxes will
begin to come In, Is In the distant No

"Why oi lie no, do, that?",eople.
tiim fo'ovsot." VaM M'Wrlght'thl's
morning, that the treasurer does not
possess powers now that were his
under the Republic. Then It would
have been possible for the treasurer to
negotiate a temporary loan. Or, ho
could rail upon the Council of State
and among them devise measures of
Instant relief. There Is no such way
open now. I am told to rely on tho
Loan bill. Tho Loan bill will not help
matters at nil. It Is possible under the
Orgnnlc Act for tho Legislature to
authorize loans for the erection of
penal, charitable and educational In
stitutions, wharves, roads and harbor
and other public Improvements. Thero
Is nothing In this allowing loans to bo
made for the payment of salaries, labor
pay rolls or other current expenses. It
Is In these matters that we are now
falling behind nt tho rate of $80,000
"The present Loan bill Is designed to
cover specific Improvements. Tho
special matterS covered by the Items
In the bill may go forward but that
does not help us In current expenses.
The Loan bill makes no provision for
keeping up roads or paying salaries."
Treasurer Wright, sorne days ago
sent to the heads of nil the depart
ments for a schedulo of tho money that
will be needed for the payment of spe
cific salaries and labor pay roll, during
tho month of June, From these esti
mates he will formulato n table of the
Ix'pendltures to bo made for tho month
nVd compare It with the pile of money
In sight. He Is certain that tho total
needed will exceed tho amount of
money available. Tho problem, then
will be to decldo where to mako a cut.
Salaries must cither bo paid, part cash
and part promise or all public work
must be stopped. Since the latter part
of April, warrants have been issued In

Tho whole matter will" be laid before

It Is probable that a epcclal session of
the Legislature will be found to be the
only practicable solution of the diffi
culty. The clamor of tho public for nn Im
provement In the condition of tho

" THE BLACK FLAG."
Another good houso enjoyed the
Rllefords' performance last evening at
the Orpheum. Tho Black Flag was
well staged and acted. It abounds In
both comical and melodramatic' situa
tions. Mr. Elleford ns tho descendant of tho
patriarch Lazarus, kept the house In
continual laughter, acting his part very
creditably. Carl Berch ns tho victim
of circumstances, could have gono
through nny privations with as dovot
ed, and ns handsome t sweetheart as
Miss llabel yierno proved to be.. Wat
son as tho Irishman gave n good ex
ample of character sketching. Miss
Norton as tho boy Ned, was qulto good,
but her specialties were hardly up to
the excellenco of her Into perform
ances. Adelaide. Lairdo carried off her
pait well, showing that ns an actress
she Is quite versatile.
This afternoon The Two Sistors will
be played for tho matinee. The Black
King will bo repeated tonight. Next
week tho Silver King and the Katal
Card will bo played.

Mossman Tries to Insert
His Report in the
TALKS FOR AN HOUR ON
MERITS OF HIS REPORT
I :: i-
Gives Some Fine Points in Regard to
" Post Mortems-Dr. Pratt Also
Conies in for a' Little Dig "
Bcokley did not arrive yesterday,1 so
the House' could not goto work this
morning. Mossman Appeared on the
sccno full of eloquence and tho oth
er necessary Ingredients of speech
Making. He proceeded to bold forth on
the merits of the Public Health Com
Aklna started by Informing the
House that no business confronted the
members. Mahoe nrose to toe occa
sion by moving that the House con
sider tho different committee reports
then on tho table.
That put Makckau In mind of-'the
Public Health Committee report, which
Is red with the gore or dozens of Im
portant Board or Health officials. A
motion to, consider, the report carried,
and Mossman Immediately proceeded
tbtalk.,i, , ,
.e I was not hero when this report was
Inst discussed," began Mossman, pre
paring to make up for lost time. "I
rpadln the newspapers what objections
were raised against the report, and I
will now proceed to answer them.
The, appropriation for. tho Board of
Health asked for by the Governor, was
given In a lump sum, and It tins been
through our faithful work alone that
we havo finally succeeded In Itemizing
the appropriation. I did not confer
with the President of the Board rela
tive to this report, but I received sev
eral letters from the Board's secretary.
I have heard from various outside
sources, and complaints havo been
quite numerous too that the different
Board officers and doctors were not
doing their duty. Taking this evl-j
dence I do not consider It necessary to
hear what the Board has to say foe .
Itself ns such nn action would bo noth
ing but a waste of time.
'There wns an Executive Officer In
tho Board of Health until W. O. Smith j
became president, when, having n
friend whom he wanted to help out, ho
created the office and his friend no
longer went worklcss. Tako tho pres
ent Executlvo Officer. Why, tho secre
tary docs all his work, besides nil his
own, for Br. Pratt does little or no
work. Look at tho f-anltary Officer,
who takes a little spin nround town
for an hour or so, and then comes In
and writes out his report. Why, the
hardest part of all his work Is drawing
his $175 every month, Thero Is the nld
to the bacteriologist, who receives very
llttlo pay. He occupies quite an Im
portant position for ho makes up the
medicine at the doctor's commands,
and at times even has to pull teeth.
The amount of tho salary, should equal
tho amount of the work, and had this
been a white man, he would have been
drawing much larger pay than ho docs
"Another thing which I think Is use
less Is nil these post mortem examina
tions. These doctors hold them Jist
for experiment, and it's nothing 'but
cruelty. What Is tho 'good of cutting
up tho body unless you want to restore
life, a thing which they have nover
succeeded In doing. What I say Is that
when a man Is dead, bury him and do
not bother him nny inoro by cruelly
cutting him up as these doctors aro al
"Bxcuse mo," broko In the Speaker,
"but this is not time, to open tho flood
gates of oratory on nil these Items.
That Is all right In Its place and wo
will listen to It by and by, but at pro
sent we aro discussing whether or not
we shnll adopt tho report."
Mossman failed to fathom tho depth
of Aklna's discourse, so ho went mer
rily on his way.
Finally a motion to consider the re
port Item by Item wai. lost. Before the
report could bo adopted, a motion to
adjourn was carried, and the day wns
