The Increase In the salary expenses
alone of this administration over the
Buchtel administration wonld nearly
pay every Uird-claas appropriation
Thus Ue state lnetltutlone are com
pelled to suffer this year because of
the Democratic Increased pay-roll. The
general appropriation bill for salaries
under Governor Buchtel totaled SBBI,-
100. The salaries this year total sl,-
072,646,10, an increase of $711,646.10
over the Buchtel pay-roll. The third
class appropriations this year total
$1,024,170.00. State Treaaurer Kene
han estimates Uat be can pay 16
percent of Uls amount, which la $165,-
176 Had Governor Shafroth been con
tent to govern Ue state wIU a sim
ilar pay-roll to Ue one expended by
Governor Buchtel, the state would
have had $862,660.00 to have applied on
the third-class appropriations wMch
would have been wlUln lees than
1200,000 of their total. Thus, It will

three quarters of a million dollars

penditure. Btate Treasurer Kenehan
says that Ue state Institutions will
noly receive 15 per cent of Ue
amounts appropriated for them.

Accordingly, petitions are being cir

is the law that caused such a fight

* Boards have, for the time being,
'quieted down. The Montezuma Valley
* and the Routt County oil leases on
’ Agricultural College lands were re

State Agricultural College for final

erybody by refusing to give Mr. Davy,
who wanted the lease in the Montezu
ma County fields, a contract for lands
in one body, and offered bim every
alternate forty acres, and the next
day the same board recommended that
Gross, wbo wanted the land In Roott
County, be given a lease on on® tract
and not on alternate forties The
1 Board’s position In the Montezuma
j County proposition was that if oil was
struck tbe state would have every
! either forty acres to develop Itself.
Its position In Routt County has not
been explained. Those who have look
