STATE CAPITOL VACATIONS
' GIVE CAUSE FOR WORRY.
Some Get Two Weeks and Others Two
Months, and What's the Reason?
Now that we are in the vacation
season, attention is directed to what
ieems to De the unfair system of ar
ranging vacations in the different de
partments in the state capitol, writes
one correspondent from Hartford. The
effect of the syste.m is that the clerks
who work the, hardest get the shortest
vacations. The vacations range from
uvu vveeKS to two months. The most
glaring differences in the vacations py.
ist in the insurance department Some
of the clerks get two months, others a
mourn ana one or two get two weeks.
The unusually long vacation period of
two months has nothing to defend it
except custom. There is absolutely no
reason why the ciarks who are favoKed
with this vacation should receivo it
while others have to get along with a
snorter vacation. The governor of the
state himself takes but two weeks off
from his duties as chief executive in
the year. It has been said that tt
clerks who get two months are so
fatigued by the tax on their intellectual
powers by work during the year they
find a vacation of two months is neces
sary to enable them to recuperate.
Those who are acquainted with the
character of their work smile at this
reason. The clerks befortg to the actu
ary department, the head of which, Mr.
Hammond, must content himself with
one month. There never wa a reason,
traceable to the effect of work on &
intellectual energies of the clerks, for
giving them two months. The custom
started years ago, when there was a
lull in their work, and a complacent
commissioner told them to spend the
time in the enjoyment of a vacation.
His successors found the custom estab
lished, and they did not disturb it.
The insurance department is thorough
ly equipped with machines for adding,
subtracting, multiplying and dividing,
and they relieve the clerks of a great
amount of intellectual exertion to
which they formerly were subjected.
In a great measure now their work is
When the fact is considered that the
hours in the capitol every day are only
from six to seven, that during the year
the clerks have ten holidays, in addi
tion to their vacations, and that on
Saturday they work only half a day,
it will be seen that these long- vaca
tions are not justified by business rea
sons or by any reason which can be
sympathetically entertained when due
regard is paid to the interests of the
state. There is nothing in the statutes
which provides for the half holiday on
Saturday or any other day. I? started
shortly after the law requiring state
banks to close for he day on Saturday
at noon went into effect. It was as
sumed by tho comptroller and the
treasurer cf that time that, the banks
not being open, there was no need of
their departments keeping open. It
was an assumption which showed re
gard for personal comfort, at any rate,
whatever it showed for the state. But
since then it has become the custiirn in
business affairs generally to siusoend
office work for a half day on Siturdavs
and no one wants to go back to the old
custom of keeping the offices in the
capitol open all day Saturday.

STATE WANTS $100,000 OF
HOTCHKISS GIFT TO YALE.
Question of Inheritance Tax on Two
Million Dollar Estate.
Whether approximately $100,000 will
be collected by the state of Connecticut
in consequence of the present inherit
ance law or whether the $1,000,000 es
tate of the late Justus Hotchkiss of
New Haven will go without the pay
mcnt of an inheritance tax to Yale
university under the wiil of Mr. Hotch
kiss is a question which Tax Commis
sioner William H. Corbin desires de
cided as a matter of law, and it is
probable that interesting points which
may develop in connection with the
nnal settlement will be determined by
the supreme court.
The hearing on the proposed decree
on the estate has been assigned by
Judge L. Gilson of the probate court
for the district of New Haven for
Wednesday, Aug. 2, at 10 a. m. A pre
liminary hearing was held at New Ha
ven yesterday morning and it was ar
ranged by counsel for the etate and
for the estate to have the hearing be
fore Judge Gilson on the final decree
Friday morning, Aug. 25, at 11 o'clock.
At the hearing this morning Yale
university and the Hotchkiss estate
were represented by Judge Henry
Stoddard and Thomas Hooker, Jr., and
Tax Commissioner Corbin was reore
sented by Judge Charles W. Cramer,
deputy assistant state tax commis
sioner. The question raised by Yale univer
sity, is a very interesting one and a
no(l one under the 1915 inheritance
law. Yale university, which is be
queathed $1,6 47,413.90 under the will
of Justus S. Hotchkiss, the bulk of
which is personal estate, alleges that
it is exempt from the payment of an
inheritance tax, which would amount
to approximately $100,000, on the
ground that it receives state aid. Un
der the 1913 inheritance law, charita
ble institutions were exempt from the
payment of a ninheritance tax and onfe
probate court held that Yale univer
sity was a charitable corporation or in
stitution. Under the present inherit
ance law only corporations receiving
state aid are entitled to an exemption
from the inheritance tax, and as Mr.
Hotchkiss died after May 19, 1915,
when the present inheritance law went
into effect, the legacy to Yale univer
sity would be taxed in accordance with
the 1915 law. Sections 2315 and 2317
of the general statutes of Connecticut
exempt college buildings used for edu
cational purposes from taxation, but it
is understood that the state of Con
necticut claims that such exemption
does not constitute aid from the state
state aid as contemplated In the
191'5 act. while the attorneys for the
estate of Mr. Hotchkiss allege that
such an exemption is as a matter of
fact aid from the state of Connecticut
and constitutes state aid aa intended
in the 1915 aot. It Is g-enerally under
stood that at tha prssent time Yale
university doea not receive any direct
state aid, but nt various tlmea In the
past the college received comparatively
small amounts from tho state, but no
direct payment from an appropriation
hue been made to tho colieiro by the
