Washington, March 10.?Appropria
tions at the last session of congress
aggregated $1,025,498,662, according
*"? the statements issued today by
Former Representative Tawney of
Minnesota and Livingston of Georgia,
who were respectively chairmen and
Linking Democrat of the house ap
propriation committee in the last
^?nngress. Mr. Tawney. saying this is
less than $1,000.00 In excess of the
f -vtnl estimates of President Taft on
which the appropriations are based,
pays high tribute to the executive
for good faith in scrutinizing esti
mates and computes that the surplus
of revenues next year will be not less
'han l'J?,542.000, which with any
part of the treasury cash balance, may
oe applied to the sinking fund.
Will Cut the Cost
Against this Mr. Livingston says
the last session record demonstrated
that when the Democratic party comoB
into complete control of the govern
ment, "this billion dollar mark for a
session's appropriations established
four years ago at the first session of
:ho Sixtieth congress, cannot be sub
stantially lowered, if lowered at all."
Declaring that the Democrats want
to save the people of this country
r:om the danger which threatens
rhem because of the rampant expen
diture of their money that has been
rolng on for the past 12 years, Mr.
Livingston In his statement contends
[hal militarism is a menace and that
Democratic accession will prevent na
tional bankruptcy. He says it is a su
perhuman task to restore expenditures
:o a normal level because of the enor
mous liability iastoned upon the treas
ury "by the statutory Increase or the
? al 1sted strength or the army and navy
four-fold since Mr. Roosevelt was so
unhappily called to the executive of
llco of the republic."
Sounding a note of warning against
"threatened onerous" direct tax with
all its lnquistorial features. Mr. Liv
ingston said that If that day comes,!
"the people will rise in their might
with a cry that will be heard to the
remotest corners of the earth and
shake from themselves and their pos
terity the manacles of burdensome
taxation fostered by the Republican
party. That day is not. distant unless
