Republican club given at Music hall last
evening. It was the largest meeting of.
the kind held in Boston in a number of
fears. Among the guests were Secretary
Tracy, Senator AMrich and Gen. Stewart
Ik WoodforJ, and they made the princi
pal speeches. Roger Wolcott, president
of the club, presided, and after speaking
about twenty minutes introduced Sec re
Ury Tracy, who was greeted with hearty
applause. After a review of the work of
V present administration the secretary
tackled the question of appropriations by
the last congress.
Explaining the Increases.
"The principal charge which has been
advanced of late by our opponents is that
the appropriations cf the Fifty- first con
r gress have been extravagant. It is true
that the appropriations of the last con
gress were larger than thoe of its prede
cessors. Some increase mast inevitably
take place as long as the country contin
ues to grow. But, apart from this inev
itable enlargement of expenditure, there
is no difficulty in explaining the present
increase to the satisfaction of every man.
Apart from pensions the increase is shown
Chiefly in the appropriations for the postal
service, for the navy, for the census, to
carry out the Indian treaties, for river
and harbors, for coast defenses and for
the payment of the spoliation claims.
The increase of $21, 000,000 for the postal
service is more apparent than real It
means an enlargement of postal facilities,
which brings with it a more than corre
sponding increase of receipts.
Navy and Indian Expenses.
"Twelve millions of the increase is for the
navy. It is wholly for the construction of
new ships an l their armor and arma
ment. There is no doubt that the gov.
ernment needs the ships and needs the
armor, and the increased appropriation
was judicious and necessary. Of the in-
crease in the Indian appropriation, ov.r
four million is for the purchase cf land to
be opened for settlement and sale by the
government. One million was for the
aappott of Indian schools and the balance
mainly for the payment of the so-called
Choctaw claims, a payment opposed by
the secretary of the interior, supported by
no one connected with the administration,
and carried through both houses chiefly
by Democrats votes. For the appropria
tion for fortifications and coast ue tenses I
offer no explanation or apology. In my
opinion the item shouid have been larger.
For Pensions and Interest.
"There remains the principal item of
increase of $113,000,000 in the appropria
tion for pensions. Of this amount
000,000 is in the nature of a deficiency
which should have been appropriated
tinder existing law by the previous con
gress, if it had performed its duty. At
the close of the war the government was
under heavy obligations, first to the sol
diers who bud fought its battles, and sec
ond to the men who :had furnished the
means to enable the government to prose
cute the war to a successful conclusion.
To the latter it owed VJ, 000,000, 000. But
the burdens imposed upon the country by
the war survived the establishment of
peace. These burdens consisted mainly
in interest and pensions. The aggregate
of these two items has not increased since
the war and will not be substantially in
creased hereafter, even by the large and
liberal amounts to be paid annually to the
soldiers under the present law.
Aggregate 'ot Increased
"In two years after the cIoe of the
war, the expenditure for pensions amount
ed to ?20,')3S,000, while the interest on the
debt was H3,7S1,000, making a total of
$164,718,4Si This is the highest mark
the aggregate of pensions and interest has
ever reached. It has shown fluctuations
from year to year, one increasing as the
other diminished, until in the present year
pensions amounted to 1121,000,000, while
Jhe interest on the debt is only 132,000,000.
Even in 1KK2, when the pensions are to
amount to Sl&.OOO.OOC, the aggregate of
pensions and interest will be 102,000,003,
or $3.7(10,000 less than the aggregate was
Harden I'er Capita Iirainihed.
"Since the last-mentioned period the
population has nearly doubled, so that
the burden borne by each individual tax
payer from the two sources, which may be
set down as the great burden of the war, is
about one-half what it was when the war
ended. The country paid its debt to the
bondholders first and to the soldiers aft
erward; the burden is being shifted from
interest to appropriations, and it is not
for the bondholders to complain of the
Three Acts Worth Passing.
"One thing more I may be permitted to
say that if the Fifty-first congress had
done nothing but pass thtve acts the
anti-lottery law, which has prohibited the
use of tba mails for the promotion of
lotteries; the meat inspection act, which
has already opened the ports of .Germany
to the importation of. Ame.ican cattle,
and which, we hope, will cause the rt-mav-all
of restrictions both iu France and Ger
many on the importations of the hog pro
duct of the United States; and finally the
shipping bill, which is destined, I tra-t,
to bring about a revival of our merchant
marine if this congress, I say, had doue
nothing but pass these three acts it
would be entitled to the lasting gratitude
of the American people,"
Secretary Tracy was heartily applauded
throughout his speech,, and at its conclu
sion his allusion to Secretary Blaine was
greeted with prolonged applause.
Airirich Sees a Reaction.
Senator Aldrich, of Rhode Island, said
that "Democratic success in New Eng
land was obtained by gross misrepresenta
tion of both parties. I see throughout
the country evidences of a reaction in
public sentiment in. favor of the Repub
lican party. very Democratic senator

Washington City, April 9. Senator
Peffer, of Kansas, made an address Tues

Ch:ca(tO. April 9 Only a few hnnd-ed
votes are between Be Witt C. Cregier or

These returns are still held by 'he

claiming that they do not care to make
their case known to the Republicans be
fore the official count. The remainder of
the Republican city ticket with the ex

elected in ail probability. The returns on

Italian Societies and Influential Citl
sens Looking Into the Matter.
New York, April ft The relations be
tween the steamship companies that
bring immigrants from Mediterranean
ports and the barge office officials are
likely to be somewhat strained for a few
weeks. Following the escape of the three
Italian consumptives from the steamship
Iniziativa, the report that twenty-one de
barred immigrants who were returned to
the steamship Burgundia had got away
aroused the ire of Superintendent Weber.
He sent Inspector Andrea Palmeri over to
the pier of the Fabre line, to which the
Burgundia belongs, with instructions to
go aboard the vessel and see if the immi
grants were there. The inspector report
ed that he could find only three of the
twenty-four who had been put aboard the
ship for transportation to Italy.
Will Probably Cost Ber ,300.
The officers of the Burgundia told Pal
meri that the rest of the Italians were
"around soaiwhere" and would be aboard
the ship wlken she sailed. The Burgundia
has her clearance papers and , sailed for
the Mediterranean at 4 o'clock this morn
ing. ColonelWeber sentPalmerl back to the
ship with orders to stay there until she
left her pier, and find out exactly how
many immigrants were aboard of her at
that time. Lgal proceedings will be in-
stituted against the vessel when she re
turns to tbis port, and her owners may be
fined $300 for each Italian that she failed
to carry back.
Bon't Like the New Law.
It is pretty plain that the steamship
companies do not like the new law, and
that they are going to resist its enforce
ment. Col. Websr received yesterday
from the agents of the steamship Inizia
tiva, Messrs. Phelps, Brose & Co., this
letter: "We hereby protest against your
having put on the steamship Iniziativa a
number of persons that you have decided
are to be returned to Italy, on
the ground that under section 10
of the last net "such persons
are to be returned on the same ship if
practicable. As this ship does not return
to Italy it is impracticable. We, there
fore, decline any responsibility arising
from their having been put on board, the
same having been done in the first in
stance without notica to us. We request
you to take and keep them in charge uu
til such time as we can send them back,
whicli we will do at the earliest moment."
Weber Takes a Different View.
In reply Col. Weber wrote that he be
lieved that it was entirely practicable.
He said it m.ht not be profitable to re
turn the ship to Italy, but it was cer
tainly practicable. If the view which the
steamship company entertained should !
held to be coi-rect the law would nullify
itself in every snch case. Some of the
influential Italian citizens think their
countrymen are being discriminated
against because ol their nationality.
They sent two Italian citizens down
to the barge office to make an ex
amimation ti the immigrants who were
prohibited from landing because they had
a calp disease. The Italian societies no
tified the barge office yesterday that they
would have the' tcwas and villages of
Italy placarded with copies of the new
law, so that Italians who contemplate
coming here would understand that they
would have their ocean voyage for noth
ing and merely lose their money unless
they were in good health and within the
requirement of the law.
