Clerks to Advance.
That the tremendous expenditures
of the Government, which are yearly
mounting up higher, are being made
in haphazard fashion, without plan
or program, was asserted today by
President Taft in sending to Congress
his message In which he strongly
recommended the -adoption of a bud
get system and also a proposed bud

effilcency,-system and intelligent ap
preciation of. what the Government is
Mng or trying to do, according to
the view of President Taft, empha
sizes the need of a budget system, to
.replace the present absolute lack of
Fears Big Deficit.
In the course of his discussion of
,the fiscal situation of the Government.
"President Taft points out that the
amount of the revenues required to
meet current expenses and fix-d
charges. Including current upkeep of
property and depreciation, is approx
imately ,$996,000,000. The amount which
the Secretary of the Treasury estimates
Srill accrue In revenues the next fiscal
,yar fa JOTO.OeO.000. This leaves a reve
nue deficiency of 3,000.000.
tFrom any angle of approach," say3
the President,! "either the estimates for
appropriations must be cut down or
provision must be made for increasing
.". The President makes 'varjous Tecom-TiamrUlnns-for
reductions of expen
ditures. He advises the formation of
2 budget committee In Congress, one
of 'the changes In legislation he says
Is needed Is for a bureau of central
An Important recommendation relates
to appropriations for personal serv
.Xcea. that Is. for the Government em
With respect to the cost of personal
service the estimates may be divided
into two classes, namely, (1) those for
the payment of the salaries of persons
appointed by the President, with the
advice and consent of the Senate, sav
IbV t -$4,500,000. and 2) those for the
jalyment of salaries to all other em-
Sloyes of the Government, saving of
"With respect to the first class 1
have already submitted recommenda
tions to -Congress in several messages
transmitting reports In which it is es
timated that the direct salary cost of
the Government may be reduced not
less than $4,600,000 a, year this to be
done by placing a large proportion of
Presidential appointments In the clas
sified service. The salaries of postmas
ters of the first and second classes
amount to over $6,000,000. while the sala-
rles of assistant postmasters of tb
same classes amount to $2,833,000. if the
position of postmaster were placed in
tbe classified service, and these officers
.were given salaries equal to 20 per
cent more than the salaries now given
to assistant postmasters, the latter po
.sltlons being no longer required, there
would be a savlnc of $4,512,000,"
"With respect to the other cmplojes
in the service, their salaries are either
what are known as "statutory" (that
Is, specified in the acts of appropria
tions) or "nonstatutory" the designa
tion given to salaries paid out of
lump-sum appropriations). With re
spect to these my recommendation Is
that the total appropriations for sal
aries be established at an amount
sufficient to cover the pay roll re
quirements of the present fiscal year,
but that authority be clevn to make a
complete excutive reclassification of !

result beneficially to employes as well
as to the Government.
"Under tbe laws governing transfer?,
entry into the civil bervlce In certain
departments amounts to a three
years' enlistment with very little hope
for promotion. The obstructions to

of certain divisions and add unneces

Mother Cannot Be Convinced
Son Was Not Buried Alive
Year'and Half Ago.
PRAYS DAILY IN A CRYPT
Hermetically Sealed Coffin Is
Opened in Effort to Relieve
Woman of Fears.
A dramatic scene' was exacted in
the crypt of the little chappel of St.
Mary's Catholic burying ground, in
Lincoln road northeast, today when
the lid of a hermetically-sealed casket
was pushed back and two prominent
Washington physicians made an
effort to convince- au broken-hearted
mother that her son had not been put
in the coffin and the glass cover for
ever sealed while there was life in
The woman was Mrs. Martha
Alessandrl, wife of RIccordo Alessan
dri, an Italian employe of the Venez
uelan legation, 1017 Sixteenth street,
whose son, Riccordo, jr., aged seven
teen, died of tuberculosis of the lungs
on August 18, 1911.
Visited Crypt Daily.
Since that time Mrs. Alessandrl,
with a woman's perseverance and the
resources of a distracted mother, has
succeeded In having the casket re
main in the crypC while she has
sought to have 'the District officials
take cognizance of the case. Every
day since the boy died she has visited
the little chapel and placed flowers
on the casket and burned candles over
the body, while for bo'urs at a time
she would kjieel In silent prayer.
As tbe oak lid was shoved "back to
day and the'-form of the young man
could be seen under the glass cover,
the mother1- nolnietT "to- drons of
knbisture that had formed on the in
side of the glass.
"See! See!" she exclaimed, pointing to
the moisture. And then she explained
how she believed the moisture had come
from her son's breath after he had been
put in the casket and the box sealed.
The fact that the body had turned
black, while others she had seen re
mained white after death, led her to be
lieve that her son had been embalmed
while he was still alive. Even yet the
mother does not believe her boy is dead.
She thinks there Is an "eternal fire" of
some kind that keeps him still breath
ing. Believes Son.5till Alive.
What the doctors told her she would
not believe. She still thought, as they
went away and left her kneeling by
th: casket with a wax taper In her
hand, that her son was alUe, and If
the glass could only be taken off he
would speak to her.
During the year and half Mrs. Ales
sandrl has besieged tile Health Depart
ment and other District officials In an
effort to have them take some action.
A cursory investigation convinced them
that the woman's churgts were un
founded. Falling to get any official action or
recognition of her charges, .Mrs. Alob
sandrl commenced calling on a number
of leading physicians In an eftort to
get thim take the matter up
Brooding for eighteen months over
her soft's death, Mrs. Alessandrl, It vas
feared, was on the verge of a mental
and nervous .breakdown, and it was In
the hope of convincing her that she was
mistaken In her suspicions that the
physicians went to the cemetery today

that her son Is dead, but was dead be

Time and again the cemetery superin
