them by turuing thorn and tho party

It remained for tho pooplo in 1895 to

legislation nu the auction block and sold
it to tho highest bidder, by ro-olecting

I happen to know something about
tho feelings of Governor Campbell dur

its formal opening. Wliilo ho, in com

mou of all partios, folt that corruption
dominated tno legislature, no m'ur an

corruptions and tho form and tho ex

that tho rovolations, bo strongly sus

.tho "per capita cost" of maintaining
tho inmates was Buiullor last year than
tno year ueiore.
Thoy have boon doing tho samo thing
for four years. As soon as I soo thoso
figures showing tho saving, I comparo
tho total expenditures with tho total for
tho yoar previous, nnd never fail to flud
tho oost largely increased.
Tho lightning calculator of ono of
thorn, for instance proved that ho had
saved 99..50 per capita over 1S91; that in
189 J ho saved $10.25 por capita over
1892; in 1894 that ho saved $5M por
fapita -over 180D, and that in 1895 he
BAVed $7,25 ovor 1894, thus rcduoiug tho
cost por capita in four years 38.85.
Naturally one would suppose that thiB
"per capita" saving would greatly io
duco tho cost of running tho institution.
And yet tho total oxpondlturos for 1890,
notwithstanding tho marvelous saving,
was somo $40,000 groator than in 1891.
Tho taxpayers aro lnrpoly gulled by this
sort of fluaucioring in lino of business
So far as observation goes, only ono of
tho stato institutions roports an incroaro
' is the institution for tho blind, which
in tho por capita cost tins year. That
; reports tno per capita cost ot maintain
' ing inmates in 1895 at $173.24, as com
I pared with 1G8.87 in 1894, un lucroaso
1 of $13.87.
Tho remarkablo part of tho story ro
, mains to bo told. Notwithstanding
this lucroaso tho nggregato cost of tho
institution shows a creator proportion'
nto economy nf expenditures than any
of tho institutions reporting por capita
This systom of reduction ascondiug
nnd jugglory was iuvoutod by tho Re
publicans and is consldorcd n very pow
erful bait with which to catch gudg
eons. Tho institution for tho blind hav
ing shown a docrc.iso of cxponsos with
nu increased cost per capita, asks for
! nn oxtra approoriation of $.'23,000, and
ought to bo ontltlod to it.
Rofering to Stato Treasurer Copo's
nnnunl report to tho govoinor, in whioh
ho admits, or rather specifics, that tho
stato's revenues for last yoar fell $112,
000 below tho disbrnemciits, it is well
