I 'HE report o? the Director of the Budget of the j
. ? United States government .has been made to
t Congress, and no voter can find cause to quarrel
I with the economic administration-of the Republican
party as set forth in the report.
" uu Tnw'1 1920. to June 30.
j UUHU& 4-A1C !
1921, the actual cost of running the government'
I was $5,538,040,689. During ine months of this
! period the administrative agencies of the governj
ment were wholly in the hands of the Democratic
j party.
During the current fiscal year, which began July
I 1, last, and ends June 30, next, It will cost $3,922,[
372,030 to run the government. During this
j period all-the executive agencies of the governI
ment have been under Republican control.
I This is a saving of $1,600,000,000 which this
Republican administration has made In one year
as compared with the last year of Democratic
These figures are not guess work. They are
taken from the books of the government. They
are set down, item by item, even to the last, penny
in a report just made to Congress by the Director
of the Burget. They answer conclusively and most
emphatically the charges of the Democratic party
tha tRepublican claims to public economy are not
based upon. fact.
Going into details, the report shows lhat the
ordinary expenditures lor operation of routine
business conducted by the executive agencies of
I the government amounted to $2,673,435,0 <0 dur- I
j ing the fiscal year July !. 1920, to June 111, lit.'l.i
, during nine months of which all the executive |
I offices were filled by Democrats.
| During the current fiscal year which ends June !
! 30. next, the ordinary expenditures for the opera-!
| tion of the routine business conducted by the execu- J
! tive agencies will be $1,765,875,672. During all
! this period these executive offices have been filled
| by Republicans.
! This is a direct and very concrete saving ot |
j $907,559.407, which must be eredited to the poll-j
j cies of the Republican executives. All of these ex- |
! peuditures are wholly subject to the control of |
; the executive officers in charge of the several de- I
j partments, bureaus and commissions which made j
: the expenditures. j
This saving of over $900,000,000 in the conduct;
of the executives agencies is not as the Democrats
charge, a "bookkeeping saving." The saving is
actual; it is concrete; it is expressible only in terms
of dollars and cents: it is a saving which means
$907,000,000 less money to be taken in taxes from
the pockets of the American people. It is a saving
which is set forth in the report of the Director j
of the Budget to the last details in dollars and :
cents. It is not imaginary; it is not "estimated"; ;
it is there: it has been made; it is as concree as J
a grindstone.
The other $700,000,000 saved by this adniinis- !
(ration as compared with the expenditures during
the last year of tne Wilson administration is ac- j
counted i'or largely by the abolition of the United !
States Railroad administration, the United States ;
Grain Corporation, the Sugar Equalization Board !
and other war activities which the Republican i
Congress elected in 1918 made an end of as'
rapidly as possible.
This is a 100 per cent, plus, fulfillment of the
1990 campaign pledges of the Republican party j
to put "more business in government." It is the!
lirst and most important step in the program of!
reconstruction. Getting expenses down and put-'
ting into etect systems and mehods hat will per-i
manenly keep them down is the first and most im- j
portant duty of every government today. Since j
March 4. 1921. the United States has made more'
drastic reductions in public expenditures and j
greater reductions in puunu liuca niau ?wj wgw..ww .
in the world. With the exception of possibly two
others, it is the only nation which has made any ;
reductions in public expenditures and taxes.
All this was done under a Republican adminis-1
The Republican Congress made it possible by j
llie early enactment of the budget law.
The Republican executives, from President Hard-J
ins down, made the possibility a glorious reality by
taking every possible advantage of the budget act j
to install and compel economies.
FAIRMONT w-Ul lose one of its best young business
men in the departure from thiB city of
Major Don. H. Blanks, manager of railways for
the M. P. <fc R. Co. While Major Blanks has been
in Fairmont but five years, he has won a genuine |
liking and popularity among the other residents
which many would have to strive a much longer
period to attain. His whole hearted enthusiasm
for the things that mean industrial and civic success
for Fairmont, has made him an appreciated
and valuable fellow citizen, and the West Virginian '
fnn'" tv.pt it it PTnrpisini" (hp sentiments of manv
when it states that Fairmont is going to greatly |
miss Major Blanks, and that an overflowing meas- [
ure of good wishes for his future success in his new ;
business career will accompany him upon his de- 1
parture from this city.
Who ordered this program for 'showers Wednes-1
day and Thursday," anyway? Showers are not !
good tor decorations nor ostrich plumes, no mat- j
ter what they do for early garden sass.
