Comptroller Player, in -His Annual Report, Demonstrates the Urgent Need of Citizens to Eender Assistance for Adoption of Meas ures to Give the City Power to Levy Appropriations for Improvements Statement of City's Finances. The annual report of Comptroller Player, which was submitted yesterday to Acting Mayor Hornsby and the Municipal Assem bly, presents a series of arguments, main tained by exhibits of financial transactions, in favor of the proposed amendments to the State Constitution. With the assistance of clear statements, showing the monetary difficulties under which the municipality has been struggling, Mr. Player demonstrates how urgent It is for the voters of the city and State to ren der willing encouragement toward propaga tion of Important public work. "The needs of the city are but Inadequate ly expressed by the estimated deficiency of about $1,000,000 for municipal revenue pur- poses." Mr. Player states. "By far the most important pressing needs have not been persistently forced upon your atten tion, for the simple reason that constitu tional and charter limitations put it entirely beyond the power of the city, even through a vote of its citizens, to secure the large amounts necessary for improvements in .the way of the erection and completion of pub lic buildings, the construction and repair of sewers, and the reconstruction and improve ment of streets, where the city's share of the coBt is too great to be met by appropria tions from current revenue. "Serious consideration should be given to the question of providing means for the ac complishment of the following new public work: Public Buildings. Completion of new City Hospital Completion of new City Hah 2S5.0U0 01 zsu.ouj.m xiospiiai jor i.nrunio ana vonvaiescem Cases CO0.MM.tf) Female Hospital 3uO,'00.!M .Additions to Insane Asylum Suu.viv.w Ten tire engine-house?, which with cost of lota, equipments, etc.. will coat 600,010 09 Total cost of completion and erection of new public buildings J2,07S,OOO.W "Other new buildings and additions that will be required in the near future are a Poorhouse, costing probably $1,000,000; a building to accommodate the Jail, Criminal Courts, Police Courts and police head quarters, costing possibly $1,000,000; Health Department headquarters, including an emergency hospital, dispensary and ambu lance stations, to be erected on the site of the old City Hall, at a cost of about $300, 000; also, additions to the House of Refuge and Workhouse, the cost of which has not as yet, been estimated.

The city must look for relief to the ccnstl tutlonal amendments to be submitted to the voters of the State at the election to be held In November next. The purposes of the amendments to the Constitution are briefly stated: "First. To authorize the levy of a tax of $0.35 on each $100 of taxable property. "Authorizing an increase in the bonded indebtedness of the city, by excluding from the computation In determining the aggregate indebtedness the city may in cur the $5,111,000 of a county debt aspumed by the city at the time of separation Irom the county, leaving the county kt the time free from Indebtedness. Also exclud ing the $5,S0S,000 of Waterworks indebted ness. "At least 40 per cent of the revenue of the State is derived from taxes assessed against real and personal property of this city, together with payments into the State Treasury on account of licenses. "During the last fiscal year the city paid to the State for the purposes enumer ated $1,234,077.02. In return? deducting the city's share of the foreign Insurance tax, $41,897.31, the State paid to the city $111, 880.63, being the Btate's portion of the cost of assessing the revenue, and for witness and other fees in the Criminal Court, to gether with several small Items. "The city cares for the State's halt, maimed, blind, insane and criminals In its institutions, and it is manifestly unfair to deprive the city of the enjoyment of the privileges accorded by the State to coun ties. The law should be so amended as to secure for the city the benefits of the same State aid for its Institutions that is enjoyed by counties. "Your attention is also directed to the necessity for amending the laws of the State applicable to the city of St. Louis, fixing the number of districts from which Justices of the Peace and Constables shall be elected, establishing their Jurisdiction and defining their duties."

AMENDMENT CONSTITUTION. At tho closa of the last fiscal year there were $730,739.83 more in the City Treasury than at the close of the preceding fiscal year. The receipts showed an increase of $312,711.88 and the disbursements a decrease of J113.CC7.S5. Of the aggregate balance of S7S0.733.S3, only $303,553.93 are available lor municipal purposes, as balances in all funds, except municipal revenue, are, by law. re served for special purposes. The revenue is not sufficient by at least $1,000,000. Comptroller Player says, for gen eral municipal purpo?es. Owing to the fact that a balance of IM3.333.93 wag obtained by strict economy, appropriations were larger this year than ever before. Never theless, the estimated requirements for this j rear are $462,000 In excess of the estimates i for the last fiscal year. Concerning revenue and requirements Mr. Player states: "The amount required to meet expendi tures for purely municipal purposes, is $6S3, 229.82 In excess of what 1 estimated to be the actual amount available for such pur poses. At the end of the fiscal ear, 1902, heads of the departments were requested by me to submit estimates of requirements for the current year, based: "First On the minimum amount that can bo made to cover expenses under pressure resulting from inadequate revenue, and "Second On the minimum amount required to secure the be&t results and normal con ditions, with due regard to economy. "Tlie estimates submitted aggregated, for municipal purposes, under the first con ditions, $730,OUO. Under the second con dition, $8,2S0,C0O. "There can be no doubt that the revenue of the city for general municipal purposes is, at the lowest estimate, at least one million dollars ($l,009,0uo; short of meeting actual requirements. "The estimated requirements for general municipal purposes for the current year (that Is, the year ending April 13. 1903,) are nearly $462,000 In excess of the estimated re quirements for the fiscal year Just closed. The estimated amount available for appro priations to meet these requirements ex ceeds the estimate of last year by about $673,000. The amount estimated as being available for general municipal purposes for the last fiscal year was $3,987,212.30. The amount actually disbursed on account of municipal revenue for the same period was $5,983,673.02, but at the close of the last fiscal year there was, as haa been shown, an un appropriated balance In the treasury of $305,555.93.

MAILED FREE "JUDGMENT IS BAD: REASONS ARE WORSE" Counsel for Prosecution Severely Criticises Decision in Gay- nor-Greene Case. Montreal. Quebec, Aug.13. Donald Monas ter, leading counsel for the United States. to-day gave out the following statement in reference to Judge Caron's Judgment In the Gaynor-Greene case: "In my opinion the Judgment is bad, and the reasons In support of it worse. The Judgment Is In effect a snap Judgment with out an opportunity for counsel being heard upon the whole case. "The first ground of the judgment Is that the warrant issued by Judge LaFontaine for the arrest of the prisoners does not contain tho date of the commission of the crime." Mr. McMasters considers this a most ex traordinary reason, as he holds the warrant to be in the words of the form prescribed by the statute. According to him the date In the warrant was not at all necessary, neither by tho form of the statute nor by the express terms of the extradition act. "But fcuppoose that the date wero required in the warrant of the arrest," he continues, "which It certainly did not. Once the pris oners are brought before a Judge or Jus tice the date In the warrant becomes abso lutely Immaterial. "On the whole. I am unable to conceive how this Judgment under such circum stances could be rendered. The authorities submitted on behalf of the United States Government do not appear to have received any consideration. Neither does the Judg ment of Justice Andrews. It Is either ig nored or lightly brushed aside. That Judg ment was res Judicata. Justice Caron was absolutely bound by its terms upon every principle underlying the administration of Justice."

His condition, so far as he himself felt, was that of a man so weary that he cannot keep his eyes open. But even when arou.sed he could not express himself about the ter ror which afflicted him. Upon being shaken and called sharply he could speak, but al ways in a drowsy way. The theory that the principal nerve In tho back of the neck had undergone a stricture, producing possible congestion of blood in the head, physicians say, seems to explain the condition of sleep. E.
