In the bouse the democrats controlled
tbe committees and determined tb ap

but when It came to tbe levy bill pro
vision wa made for retains; only 13.500,

Incom from tbe Illinois Central railroad
in Ilea of Wir, ami for tbe feea from tbe
office of tbe tate auditor and secretary
of at ate, It wa clear tbat the approirle
tloni made were 4l fioo.uoo in crceMof
the provisions nisde fur pajing them.
Tbat ia, litieral rtpeoiliture bad been
made without adequate proTiaion for
Nov, wbat are Mie absolute facta ahown
by tlie records. Hj tbe leaainu law of
1S5 it will he en there were forty -nine
bill pM'l appropriation money. Br
tbe rnte journal it will be seen that
tbirty-eibt of tbeae were tlrt Introduced
Into tbe enan, and bavini: pawed tbat
boily, were paaaed by the bouae, while
only eleven appropriation bill were flrtt
paaaed by Ibe houae It will alao be eea
by r (erring to the session law tbat for
ty four out of tbe forty-nine appropria
lion bill were pas-eil after Mr. Weaver
bad taken bii aeat, and after tbe republi
can bad one maiivily In tbe bnuae.
Now, wbat is the blatory or the levy
bill. It was Introduced In the senate oa
tbe 17th day of June, by Senator Tubb,
cr Warren, and provided for a levy of
j,ikhi.(i on tbe assessment of lHS.i and
a like uru on tbe assessment of IIWll,
which amounts rre all ibe atate officer
deemed necessary. When it went to the
bona It wa. on motion of Mr. Cron
trite, cb'irman of tbe bouae committee
on appropriation, reduced half a million
a. b year, for tbe reason that, with tbe
money then in the treasury, together
Willi wbat would be paid In by tbe Illi
nois t'eutral and from other source, tbe
two and a half HiiUion each year would
be ample to pay all the appropriation
A motion waa made to lay tbia amend
meut on the table and It was defeated a
nn oilier of republicans voting against it
Tbe seuule rt fused to concur in tbe bouse
amendment, and a conference committee
conalatmv of (Senators Tubba and Kay,
repuit.lcai), and Soutbworlb. itemocrat.
and Uepreaentativus "ip!7.rd and Wbltte
mure, tepubiicana. and Kimbrousb, dem
ncral, waa apHinlei. Tbey decided to
allow the levy of .llKMKKJ on tbe B
segment of 11J to aland and make tbe
levy on the aesment of linn.
IXNI, and in Ibis shape tbe bill became a
law providing for a total levy of only
J.'.iki.ikh lea iban was first Baked for by
the republican state officer.
Again tbe J.rniU says:
V lien tbe levialature met in IS?, tbe re
publicans were in power in both branrbe.
Tbey did not increase tbe appropriation.
In fact, the tnttl appropriations of that
eaion-7.71 :iiwer 45 MM less
than those of the ilainra legislature of
IS-1.' Vet, on account of tba deficient
levy above ti plained, they were com
pelled to raise at least flnN) iMl more
than w r.i-ed under tbe levy of 1313,
and tbla wa the origin of tbe 33-cent tai
rale which became the atate slogan or tbe
democracy In the cmtign of 1.
The republican leirmlature or Is?, ac
cording to the Juurrfil, appropriated $7..
7S1 and had a deficiency of ft Ctm..
no. making an aLV'l? e of 9 331,
yet the levy bill of 1h7 only provided
for raiain 7 (Kl ink.). Will tbe Journal
kindly Inform ua what baa become of tbe
deficiency t.f 2.2ai.8lis?
Affain anya tbe Jinrrmt:
in lH-O it was a question wilb tbe re
publican leailer Whether it wnu.d not be
belter to divide tbe deficiency of H-5
out over two evasions: but It waa deter
mined to levy up to the amount of tbe
appropriation, allowing for Income from
other source, ami put the whole matter
riiiUt at one stroke.
Wbat business bad tbn republican
leaders Intttaruaa what the officer of the
kaw should or ahouM not do? The law
passed by the letfialature of SJ7 told the
proper officer to lew a tai on tbe a
aesament of sufflcieut to produce
1 Hihi.ihsi f,,r the revenue fund, and
9l.tNNi.tNNi f,.r the school fund. There
was no deficiency provided for anywhere,
and the JourmU knows tbat there are not
in the Isws of ls"7 a bill providing for
the payment of a deficiency on account of
tbe state not having paid any liability
Incurred by tbe levialature of 1HM3.

Washi!otO!I Citt, Oct hi. Gen. Miles,
commanding tbe division of tbe Pacific, in
hia annual report just received at tbe war
department, recommend com change in
snlisttnent laws, to check desertion "the
principal evil besetting tbe army" th moat
important of which are reducing the term
of enlistment to three year, th exercise of
greater rare in investigating tb moral of
recruits, and increasing the pay of non-commissioned
Dsarsr or tbe Paelflo Coast.
Tbe most interesting portion of tbe report,
both from a political and Bnauoial stand
point, is tbat referring to tba defense of tb
Pacific coast. On tbis subject ba says:
'It is one tbat Should receive the earnest and
immediate attention of tbe government. It is
of sucb vital importance that I regard it as
neither wise nor patriotic to longer delay its

It is esf.mateJ, G-n Milei says, tbat to

tbat it will be impossible to transport tbes
(tins across tbe continent, and if they war
transported the coat of transportation
would exc-ed the cost of a plant for tbeir
construction on the coast. He does not think it
would lie wisdom or good policy for ths
government to depend upon one section of
the country for ths manu lecture of its mu

Similar plants to tbots established on tb

predisposed to any disease before enlistment,
which disease develops while in the service
ha it undoubtedly entitled to a pension.

Knight of I.abor assembly, which Ira De
ferred the workmen to ita rolls. It appear
that tbe passage of tbe blowers to this coun

Then again tbe workmen were allowed to

directs tbat import 1 laborers be taken back

it is yet an unsettled question whether tb

Canon Bernard, it scenis, was the private
secretary of Bishop Durousseau, of Tournai,
