PARKER'S ACCOUNTS COMMITTEE
Likely to Result in Radical Reforms and
Saving- of Money.
Springfield, Ills., Feb. 24. Senator
Parker's committee on public accounts,
a new adjunct of the senate this ses
sion, appointed for the avowed pur
pose of reforming the financial and ac
counting systems of the various state
institutions, Las some important work
ahead of it, which, if properly ex
ecuted, win result in radical reforms
and the savings of considerable rev
enue to the state and taxpayers. Prob
ably the most important thing the com
mittee will have to tackle is the pres
ent loose and unsatisfactory method
of reporting the earnings of the Vari
ous state penal and reformatory insti
tutions. At the present time there is no in
formation at the command of the leg
islators, who require the facts, more
than a mere report showing that cer
tain sums were received and turned
over to the treasurer of the Institution
for expenditure. Appropriation bills
fail to show the amount earned each
year, and. inasmuch us these amounts
are expended for the maintenance, op
eration and Improvement of the insti
tutions, the appropriation bills fall
short of the intentions of the framers
of the constitution, who thought they
had provided a means for determin
ing the exact cost to the taxpayers of
running the penitentiaries and reform
atores. . The system is due doubtless to the
anxiety of treasurers of t the institu
tions to retain in their own posses
sion for as long a time us possible
the money earned by the inmates for
the state. The Chester penitentiary,
for instance. 'has annual earnings of
more than $100,000. Yet the appro
priation bill now pending and that of
the past two years show only $0O.
000 appropriated for "ordinary ex
penses." As a matter of fact the $00,
(KK) appropriated by the state and the
earnings of orer $100,000 all went for
the operation and maintenance of the
It developed on Inquiry also that the
$00,000 wast drawn from the treasury
in ten monthly installments, and that
the remainder of the money at the
command of the institution was not
used until he regular appropriation
had been exhausted. In other Avoids,
the institution treasurer piled up the
earnings and- held them till the last
minute, presumably for the interest
they brought his personal bank ac
count. One reform that will be stroujrly ad
vocated in this line is the ulolition of
nil special treasurers for the institu
tions. Members of the legislature who
have looked bito the subject say they
see no reason why state prisons, re
forma tores, irsane asylums, and sim
ilar institutions can not send . their
bills and vouchers through to the au
ditor of state and the state treasurer,
as the other departments are required
to do. and not have a special treas
urer for the Institution. The usual
argument ngninst It Is that "It is not
convenient." There Is no point In the
state with present mail facilities that

bills from the Parker committee on
public Institutional accounts which is
now preparing to descend on every in
stitution In the state.
VOTERS' LEAGUE BIAKKS CRITICISMS
Thinks the Pay Rolls or the 8m ate and
Koute Are Too Luxurious.
Springfield. His., Feb. 24. The
Legislative Voters' League has issued
its first criticism of the present scis
sion of the general assembly. It is
based upon t'.ve pay rolls of the house
and senate, which, the league thinks,
are outrageously excessive. Since It
met Jan. 7, the league says, the legis
lature has paid ' $33,010 to employes.
There are 334 persons on the rolls
140 in the senate, 1)8 in the house and
06 on the secretary of state's legisla
tive pay roll. The league mathematic
ian has figured that this means that
the taxpayers have been mulcted in the
sum of $825 a day for such employes,
while the statute authorizes appointive
positions which amount to but $218 a
In Its report the league submits a ta
ble of figures showlug that while the
sessions have grown shorter In the last
ten years, the pay rolls have Increased.
In the last session the daily expense
was $802. The officers of the league
hold that the speaker can cure the ell
by compelling a roll call on every ques
tion involving the expenditure of mon

the position of freight traffic mana

been preparatory to either changing
