numbers of clippings from newspapers

"Insofar as the alleged 'alliance' with
you is concerned, I can freely and
frankly say that none has been made.
As you are already aware I simply
proffered you my support in your can-

only wanted to know whether you

constitution of the United States per

"The language which is' attributed
to me in the false interview, in which
I am made to criticise and abuse the
administration, should have condemned
the interview as a fabrication at once.
But even more absurd is the state
ment made by the press that I am an
avowed candidate for the Republican
nomination for president at tbe next
national convention; that you have
made an alliance with me, and ttiat
therefor you have practically declared
your opposition to President McKinley

course, such a statement is too silly to
be entitled to serious attention. It is
sufficient to say to you that I have

I think the time is not far distant

malicious attacks. Attempts to correct
their reports only result in provoking
a more liberal outpouring of editorial
venom. After all. it is well to remem
ber that a newspaper represents the
opinion of only one man. and that:
that opinion la usually influenced by
every motive except a desire to do full

when the people will awake to this

Last Fiscal Tear;
Washington, July 3. Contrary to the
expectations of the treasury officials
the government expenditures during
the fiscal year closed Saturday exceeded
the receipts by only 538,875,989. One
month ago the officials predicted that
the deficit might not exceed 1100,000
000. This unlooked-for result Is ac
counted for by exceptionally heavy re
ceipts from customs and internal rev-
enue sources, and a marked falling off
in expenditures. -It is jiot expected that
this condition will continue during the
coming month, . when the new appro'
priatlons become available.
A deficit for July may be looked for,
although there was a surplus for the
mouth of June of $15,714,153. For the
twelve months of the f$cal year the re
ceipts were as follows: (Customs, $206,-
507,812; internal revet V $273,142

$516,216,474. The disbursrwents during
