Several of the appropriations
suggest that economy could be prac
ticed without injury to the interests
of the state. We will only refer to
two. For instance $2,400 for a
clerk is a pretty comfortable salary,
more than nine-tenths of our busi
ness men make with the investment
of capital and years of experience.
$20,000 are appropriated for fuel
and lights for the insane hospital at
Lincoln. We would not haye the
unfortunate inmates of this institu
tion suffer with cold or live in the
dark, but it will occur to the aver
age taxpayer that $20,000 will buy
a "right smart" of coal and gas.
Its about $55 per day or ten tons of
coal for every rday in the year.
