An Analysts and explanation.
In aa analysis aud explanation of the
increases and reductions made in appro
priation bills last congress it is stated
that the increase in the agricultural bill
was caused by increased appropriation
for the establishment of agricult i ral ex
P'rimeut stations in various states, and
for the expenses of the weather bureau
transferred to the agricultural depart-Eit-nt.
The increase in the fortification
b;!I was caused by appropriations for the
construction of gun and mortar batteries
for the defense of Boston, New York and
..m Francisco, and for the new army gun
uctory at Watervliet arsenal.
To Carry Oat Indian Treaties.
The increase cf over $7,000,000 in the In
dian bill is due to items of approp-iatioa
to carry out recent treaties with various
tribes, mainlv for the sale of port.ons of
their lands, for paying the Choctaw and
(.'tiirkasaw claim, and an increase ot
H),ouo in appropriations for support
of Indian schools. The increase of $1,
.UD.m'.U in the legislative bill was cause I
by increase in the clerical force of the va
rious departments. The inrrea.se in the
navy department as caused principally
by increased appropriations for ne-v war
The Great Sum for Tensions.
The increase of 113,312,351 in t ie pen
sion bill is caused in part by the failure
of the Fiftieth congress to make sufficient
appropriations for pensions for the fiscal
year lS'.to, leaving a deficiency to be pro
vided for by the Fifty-first conjrrass of.
i".:i-I.'.i7 and the appropriation by tjve
I'.fty-first congress of the full amount.-

fit is claimed) for pensions will Ixf neces
