Fbom the reports and estimates pre
pared by the World's Columbian exposi
tion authorities for the congressional
investigating committee the following
interesting facts, among man; others, ap
pear: To complete the exposition and
conduct it to its close will require of the
directory a total expenditure of $22,246.
403. Up to March 1, the total expendi
ture was $ 3,860,934. The liabilities un
der contracts already made is $4,692,724.
The receipts have been $6,252,404, and
the amount due from stock subscriptions
and city bonds $5,713,051. The national
commission has expended $184,532, and
estimates that $1,067,983 more is needed,
including $700,000 lor awards. The
lady Bianagers have spent $57,811 and
tbiak they require $227,574 more up to
the close f the fair.
Nkw York Times: The republican
cacdidate for governor of Rhode Island
has received a majority of 229 on a vote
of 54,699- The legislature will have a
small majority on joint ballot, and Mr
Aldrich, one of the least excusable and
most reckless of the jobbers in protective
axes in the senate, will be allowed t
continue in the discreditable business he
has so long followed. But the narrow
margin by which the republicans have
pulled through is conceded by their own
leaders to leave the state at best doubtful
the presidential election. The democratic
state ticket was not a strong one. The
Providence Journal, one of the most up
right and candid papers in the country,
opposed it on its merits without any re
gard to the effect on future elections.
Unquestionably many men who voted for
Brown this spring would vote for Cleve
land next fall.
The Hiate of the Treasury.
The secretary of the treasury is still
balding up appropriations, and it is
evident from his own statements that he
must continue to do so unless congress
authorizes the negotiation of a new
The fact that the fifty-first congress
authorized expenditures in excess of the
government income is now recognized
and practically admitted, says the New
York World. Many hundreds of work
ingmen engaged on public buildings and
on other works have felt the hardship of
waiting lor the money due from the gov
ernment. And now the judgment cred
itors who have won their suits in the
court of claims find that the collection
of their money is postponed by the order
of the secretary of the treasury.
Notwithstanding the failure of the gov
eminent to pay its just dues, the monthly
debt statement shows that the amount of
cash in the treasury is declining. Count
ing tie gold reserve as an available asset,
after bis fashion, Mr. Foster claimed a
net cash balance of $182,898,884 at the
end f March. He pretended that this
was the sum of his available assets, but
from it must be deducted the following
Reden ptionfond 8100,000,000
Subsidiary coin 14,746,917
Fonda awaltlnir reimbursement 887,198
M inor coin, etc 458,790
Depos its in nat ional ban ks 17,oUU,73U
Bederjiptloa accoants, national bank
Toal..;; . 1163,428,480
In other words, aside from the appro
priations of the last congress, the treasury
is short by $20,629,598. The secretary
has d me his best to save his cash by w
fasinir to pay the appropriations, but he
is now behind-hand to the amount of the
held-a p appropriations, which is indefi
nite, wad of $29,529,596 besides.
Abolition ls Abolition.
Coi gressman Scott proposes abolition
of the sugar trnsi by abolition of the su.
gar duty, that is the refined article.
Looking to this end he recently offered
the following which wss referred to the
ways and means committee of the house.
A stronger argument in favor of the reBO-
lutiot and of the bill which it contem
plates could not be made than is present
ed in '.he preamble:
Wi erkas, The duties levied by the Mc
Kinlep law on sugar of over No. 16, Dutch
stand ird color, are a burden of taxation
borne by the consumers of refined sugar,
and prevent the price of sugar to the peo
ple being reduced, and the free sugar
provi uon of said bill applying only to No.
16 an under gives the monopoly known
as the sugar trust free raw materials; and
said trust, being composed of less than
20 refineries.bas succeeded in completely
stiflin i and destroying competition by its
unjust exactions, has by increase and
manipulation of its capital stock, lately
adding $26,000,000 thereto, absorbed all
outstanding refineries of sugar, and id
practically but oae seller of the refined
product, the only sugar of consumption;
Wbbrbas, This consolidation has en
abled the sugar trust to force down the
price of raw sugar from the cane planta
tions of the south and the beet farms of
the west, and thus crippled two useful
industries of the country, and also has
made it possible for said trust to oppress
t be people by increasing the raw and re
fined, as shown by the current markets,
to euca an extent as to enable this stu
pendous corporation to millions of money
from tne producers of raw and the con
Burners of refitted sugar; and
Whereas, The report of the com mis
sioner of internal revenue for the year
ending June 30, 1891. shows that there
was consumed during the year preceding
8 946,490,995 pounds of sugar, on which
the sujar trust was enabled to increase
the pr ce to the the full amount of the
tariff, thus taking trom the con
sumers of the country $19,782,
454; and as this monopoly, by
depressing the price of raw sngar,
lias been able to realize a far greater
sum, the same not being far from $40,
000.000 per annum; and the sugar sched
ule in the present tariff law simply re
mains as a safeguard protecting one of
the mcst gigantic and conscienceless mo
nopoliss of the age; and the abolition of
all sugar duties would admit free and
thus cheapen sugar to the people and
prevent the trust from depressing cane
and otber raw sugars produced here;
therefore be it
Resolved, That the committee on ways
and means of this house be and hereby is
instrut ted to report a bill removing all
duties on sugar and placing the same on
the i ren list in order that over 60,000,000
of people may no longer be compelled to
pay tribute to one of the most prodig
ious m inopolies of modern times, and
that this article of consumption in every
household may be cheapened and the
burdens of the people relieved.
