CAN THK KllHU.llUKOKK *KTTI.K
In yesterday evening's Atoll B letter
from the Governor to Hon. John W.
Daniel was published ? which we copy,
omitting tbe long schedule of figures ap?
pended to it -which give-* an estimate of
the income and the expenses of the Stale
Government for thc Beal few years. \\ ??
arc confident that his Excellency very
greatly underestimat' I the capacity of tin;
revenue. We feel sure of demonstrating
that it will beat least $800,000 more than
he puts it at. Bul we will treat the case
as WC find it.
The Governor estimates the revenue
for the next few years at $e\700,000. Af?
ter making up the expenses of the State
Government, and the costs of the public
schools, he leaves a surplus for interest
on the public debt of $648,000.
We pass by all of the details of 'he |
statement of expenditures, on which'
much might be said, to remark on
two only : Amongst the annual expenses
he puts down $'..'00,000 for "arrearages doe
schools and arrears of interest due the
Literary Fund which belongs to thc pub?
lic schools." This means that the State is
to go on annually keeping $900,000of her
revenue from her creditors, that a certain
sum shall be given to education, which
some theorists think she ought to have
given to that cause during a period of
some ten years, between 1871 arni 1881;
that is, that a certain number of children
received no education bc! ween i*>?1 and
1881,and,as a consequence, those edu?
cated between 1866and 1898 are to have;
doubly as good education. Can il be
necessary to reason against her obliga-l
tiona to do this!
The other item we remark on is this:
"Interest on State bonds held by iiislitu
Hons of learning?which 'muds, it is
posed, >rill md i>, funded into RidtUebergers"
Why should this be supposed? If there
is to be a readjustment of the public
debt, why shall not sill the creditors
stand upon thc same footing! If these
bonds are funded into Kid.imbergers the
sum annually paid on them would be
something Like$40,000pei annum Instead
of $140,000. Now, if Hie s-j(>(?.(??(> ami
this $100,000 per annum an- added to the
$648,000, the surplus for interest will bc
$848,000,which is nearly8per cent, on
the whole debt; and wi- have not the
slightest doubt that the creditors would
accept that. This is il good a showing ;i*
they could reasonably have expected to
Some ten years back the Sinking-Fund
Commissioners regularly invested every
month $100,000 of cash in Piddlebergers
for the benefit of the State, and latterly
they invested $50,000per month in thal
vvity. until the decisions of the courts
made them apprehensive thal the cou*
jions would arrest the revenue. How
could this have been done if thc rev- vu. ~
wcie no more ih;in the Governor thinks
they will be?

The inability of the State to make a
