of tho United States Treasury orllclals
upon tho fiscal condition of this coun
try during tlio year railing, June 30
next, lly that time It Is believed the
Federal Treasury will vshow n surplus
o' $100,000,000 for tho twelve months.
At the closo of the third quarter of
the year the Treasury Biirplui stood
oi JC1.032.4H. Last year, on the cor
responding date, tho excess of re
ceipts over expenditures wns only
$42,000,000, but this hail Increased to
$79.0(10.000 three months later. Cus
toms receipts during Mnrch of this
year weie greater than in the same
l onth of 1901, but Internal revenuo
receipts have diminished, though not
to so great an extent as was expected.
Total iccelpts of the United States
Government. Oils year, have been
$H9.O02,S7fl for nine months, ns
against $135,117,109 In the same per
iod of tho previous flscnl jear. Tho
expenditures, however, havo been far
lets this year especially In the War
Department, tho totnl for nine months
In nil departments being $357,970,404
nr against $392,811,270 at tho end of
March, 1901. Add to these favorable
figure n steady diminution In tho
amount of the Interest bearing debt,
which was lessened by almost $6,000,
OrtO In Mnrch, a surplus reserve fund
of $150,000,000 In the National Treas
ury as well bb an avallablo cash bal
ance of $177,850,289. and It can be
readily seen that the financial condl
tlon of the United States today Is In
far more gratifying condition than
Is that of tho United Kingdom.

regarded as satisfactory, although the
