Wafhihgtow, Not. sa All the estimates
compiled by the several executive depart
ments, with the exception of thcea of the
interior department, are now in the hands
of Oecietaiy Foster, of the treasury depart
ment. They are being printed for submit
tal to eemgresa whan it meets tn December.
These estimates, as far as they have been
compiled by treasury officials, show an In
crease c4 $33,500,000 over the estimates for
the same branches of the public serrica for
the last fiscal year, which amounted to
H00, 008, 68. The estimates for the depart
ments of justice, agriculture, labor, and
state show but slight increases, amounting
In all of them when footed up to not more
than $1,500,000. The executive branch
proper the White House is about the
lame as last year, and the Judicial appro
priations, too, are but little increased.
Where an Increase Is Wanted.
To carry on the military and naval estab
lishments more money, it is thought, will
be needed, and combined these two depart
ments ask an increase of about $1000,000.
The establishment of many additional free
delivery offices and the necessary establish
ment of new offices hare been a tax on the
receipts of tho postoffice department, and
the expenditures, it is estimated will ex
ceed the receipts by $5,000,000, an increase
of expenditure over this year's estimates of
nearly $3,000,000. The treasury estimates
will be advanced

fiscal year, which will hare to be furnished

Wlke Eager for aa Income Tax.
If the money is raised by taxation there
will be enough schemes, no doubt, pro
posed to raise any amount, One that finds
favor with many is to make the thrifty
pay tne piper ry an income tax. Such a
ne is Scott Wike's. He docs not know
about an extra session. "It depends," said
he, "upon the work of this congress. If it
should tyfebead and pass a revenue bill
that would increase the receipt from im
ports to meet the deficiency in the treasury
there would be no need of au extra sesaion.
But I am not prepared to sty what this
congress will do. I know what I would do
if I had full power. I would piiss an in

would practically exempt the masses, as I
would not tax incomes below f.5,000.

he did was ta interpolate ia translations of
certain Russian documents bearing on the
subject sentence not contained in the origi
nala, and which tended to strengthen the
claims of the United States government.
In one case, it is said, he fabricated a letter
entirely. Thrs was art entirely different
from PetrofTs apparent character that the
exposure led Superintendent Porter to be

fact, to all bis work for the cervnntliat this
imaginative freak dumfounded Jhoae who
were acquainted with him. Petroff waa ia
V ashington a week ago last Friday, when
he confessed his fabrication to Secretary of

profusely illustrated by maps and dia
grams, and Mr. Porter calls attention to
&e fact that it contains no matter not re

Three volumes are now to the printers'
bands, one is ready for the printers, one is
in stereotype and two others are in type.
