Washington, Sept. 17. Secretary Fos
ter assumed charge of the treasury depart
ment yesterday, and fouud his time fully
occupied by matters that had accumulated
in his absence. Discussing tbe general
financial outlook with a press representa-
tivehe said: "There seems to be a deter-
. . .
mmation on tbe part of certain parties to
insist upon the bankruptcy of the treas-
ury. it nas oeen recently cnargea tnat at
a meeting of the cabinet an agreement
was reached to hinder, delay, and post
pone the payment of money for all public
purposes where such a policy was possible;
that the secretary of the treasury had
adopted a olan of ninchinir eeonomv in
the matter of reducing the amount of cash
p.aced to the credit of disbursing otlicers;
iu short, that the secretary had found it
necessary to resort to unusual expedients
in all directions to pay the non-extended
4'i per cents."
No Claims of Any Sort Delayed.
Commenting on these charires Secretary
Foster said that no such cabinet nutting
a-i that alluded to had been held, aud no
instructions had been given to delay the
payment of appropriations for any pur
pose. Xo claim of any sort had been de
layed for this reason; nor, indeed was
there occasion to do so. It is true, ILe
secretary added, that he had felt that it ! ba, one of the drivers broke. The train
wo&ld lie good policy to restrict disburs- w-as ruuning forty miles an hour, and the
ing officers to their actual needs, and he , broken bar at ouce knocked the engine

since he found more than (40,0t)Q.0J0 in the
hands of disbursing officers, when proba
bly rj0,0000,000 to 125,000,000 would have
been an ample supply. Less than (133,000,
000 was now held by them, and he hoped
in due time to reduce this sum to a
Will About Balance Accounts
Secietary Foster insisted ihat the treas
ury had all the money required to main
tain a position of perfect ease without j
adopting a polic of delay, or resorting to j
any action that is not based on perfectly j
sound principles; but he admitted that
there is less money iu the treasury now
than there has been for many years here
tofore. The tariff legislation of the last
congress will, he said, probably effect a
reduction of the revenue to the extent of
oO,000,000 to $;o,OtJ,000, while the liberal
appropriations will about consume tbe
revenues. The nionty paid into the treas
ury, the secretary declared, will flow orct
daily, as it ought to, thus leaving all the
money not actually needed iu the treasury
in the hands of tba people, where it be
longs. CONCERNING BOND EXTENSION.

mission of foreign goods assigned to the
