Mr. Dockery, of Missouri, fur
nished the Republic with the follow
ing regarding democratic economy
It appears that the total appropri
ations of the Flfty-Crst congress (re
publican) were 1.035,6!6,921. and
the total appropriations of the Fifty,
second congress (senate and execu
tive, republican) were 1, 026.822,
019.72. or a difference in favor of the
Fiftv-aecond congress of 8,64.
071.49. It is proper to state in this connrc
tion that the legislation of the Fifty
first congress imposed upon that con
gress increaseri liabilities of f 127,
3W.111.6H; npon the Fifty-second
congress, tl7&,7SG,61x.79, and ttpon
the first session of this congress 65.
648.441.92. This entailed liability
of 5,6 18,441.92 is Included in the
total appropriations, which aggre
gate, as heretofore stated, f490,G68,
309.51. It is proper to state that during
the present session of congress the
roll of government employes has been
reduced by more than 600 at an an
nnal reduction in cost of exceeding
9700,000, and that there have been
a greater number of reductions of
salaries than Increases. This state
ment is significant when it is remem
bered that the Fifty-tirst congress
made a net addition to the roll of
1,705 new offices and increased 1,214
salaries At a total increased cost of
2,296,076.64. It is but jnstice to
the honse to aay that the appropria
tions of the present session have
been increased by the senate in the
sum of $9,370,140.39.
An analysis of the 14 regular ap
propriation bills warrants the follow
The estimates submitted by the de
partments exceed the appropriations
of the present session by $29,994,
471.20; the appropriations of the first
session of the Fifty-first congress ex
ceed the appropriations bf the pres
ent session by $3,787,879.14; the ap
propriations of the second session of
the Fifty-first congress exceed the
appropriations of the present session
by $60,656,491.78; the appropriations
for the first session of the last con
gress exceed the appropriations of
the present session by $16,931,819.20,
aad the appropriations of the last
sesion of the last congress exceed
the appropriations of the present ses
sion by $28,835,989.70.
It is obvious, therefore, that the
billion dollar congress is no more,
this congress having by economic
provisions for the public service
made appropriations which, in their
aggregate, can be expressed in mil
lions. I congratulate the country
that the million-dollar congress has
come to stay, at least so long as the
administration of national affairs is
conducted by the democratic party.
