FBIDAT NOVEMBER 9. 1S77 WHAT IS IX THE STATE TREASURY. ACTUAL SHOWING OP AVAILABLE FUNDS MIS TAKES OF THE HOWL AN EXTRA SESSION OF THE LEGISLATURE NOT NECESSAET. As some of our contemporaries have favored the calling of an extra session of the Legisla ture, based upon a false idea of the amount of funds in the State Treasury, and have referred to a statement which appeared in the Morn ing Appeal of October 24th, and have mis construed the figures as they appeared: we will for their enlightenment give a more ex- plicit and detailed statement, so that the most obtuse schoolboy will not fail to thoroughly understand it, and obviate the necessity of any further gush on, and misrepresentation of, the subject. If the interests of the state Demanded it we would be among the first to advocate an extra session; but we are unable to discover anything in the figures of our state ment which would justify such a call. They assume the fact that $564,500 securities, men tioned in the statement, are available assets. They are not. If the Legislature were to hold all the extra sessions the law allows they could not in any way make them available. A call for such a session must be based upon what the Treasury is yet to receive, viz: re ceipts from taxes. And the demand for the extra session, therefore, must rest upon what we have not what we need. Now, do we need anything ? The CASH ON HAND, Including cash vouchers, as per statement, was October 1, 1877: Coin. Currency. Balance in Treasury, Jan. 1, 1877 305,414 20 $46,108 40 Received from Jan. 1 to Oct. 1, 1877. . 273,710 02 19,307 67 Total $379,124 22 Deduct currency sold $65,416 07 40,000 00 $25,416 07 Coin realized from the sale of currency. . . 37,700 00 $616,824 22 . 388,092 13 Disbursed to Oct. 1. 7,670 71 Balance Oct. 1 $228,732 09 $17,745 36 Deduct cash vouchers say 150,000 00 1,500 00 Balance $78,732 09 $16,245 36 Of this almost the entire amount is in the School Fund and State and Territorial Inter est and Sinking Fund, and consequently un available. Now, we will take THE ESTIMATED BESCXT On next month's (December) settlement that can be considered available, say $260,000. Deduct estimated expenses, say $150,000, and we have an available balance January 1st, 1878 of $110,000. This amount will be re quired to keep the State upon a cash basis until the June settlement in 1878, and as the receipts from the June settlement are always light, the Treasury will not be burdened with a surplus amount of cash on hand at that time. It will be remembered that apportion ments and settlements are made in June and December, and that the major portion of the taxes are received at the latter time. The SETTLEMENT OF DECEMBER, 1878, May place in the General Fund $280,000 sur plus cash, provided the Bonanza mines con tinue to yield a revenue as they have this year. But should they fail, then the reve nues on hand would not be more than suffi cient to defray the expenses of the Legislature of 1879 and keep the State upon a cash basis. By reference to the statement, published ev ery month, giving the count of the moneys on hand in the Treasurer's Office of CASH, CASH VOUCHERS AND SECTRITIES, By the Board of Examiners, it will readily be seen why we condensed our statement by calling cash and cash vouchers "cash on hand October 27, 1877." The count of the Board of Examiners stood as follows Coin $72,732 00 Coin vouchers, (warrants paid and held as vouchers) 159,428 75 Currency 18,636 19 Currency vouchers 1,280 71 Thus leaving but a small amount of cash on hand upon which a call for an extra session could be legitimately made, while the prob able expense entailed upon the State for such a session would be $40,000. From the above it will be seen that so far from having "funds enough in the Treasurey to run the State Government for two years," if the taxes were to cease this month, the Treasury would not contain sufficient to pay expenses for a single week. Where our contemporaries are off is that they have included the unavailable funds in their estimates, viz: the irreducable School Fund, from the interest of which the teachers of our public schools throughout the State are paid twice a year, and the State and Territorial Interest and Sinking Fund, the interest of which simply counterbalances the interest on our State Bonds. " Let us have peace." Personals. Sheriff Sias of Eureka county was in the city yesterday. He has been to Woodbridge to take an insane woman. Was over at the Capitol settling up. We also saw Perley Rowell an old Carsonite, now of Eber hardt. He was an old timer here; came in '59 and was one of the pioneers of White Pine. Perley says he is doing well in the White Pine country yet, and thinks it good. A PROBLEM. Several of our skilled mathematicians have been working upon the following problem without reaching anv satisfactory result. If it be presumed that 800 pounds of nails were purchased, to be used in a fence of given dimensions around a school house, and in building an out house for the same, what became of the nails? It has finally been solved by a graduate of the Carson high school, as fol j0W3: length of lot 100 ft. , widthof lot 50 feet, - entire length of fence 300 feet, width of boards i f00t( number of boards 300, number of nails in each board 4, 4 x 300 1200 gives the en tire number of nails necessary. Number of nails to the pound 30, 1,200 whole number of nails divided by 30, the number to the pound gives 40 the number of pounds of nails in the fence. As there would not be more than that number used in the out house, put it at 40 pounds, making it 80 pounds of nails used in both. But 800 pounds are sup- posed to have been used. This 800 multiplied by 30, to reduce again to nails I gives 24,000 the supposed number of nails used, but multiplyinz 80, the number of pounds actually used, bj 30 as before, we have 2,400 for the actual number of nails used. Reducing to a proportion we have 2,400 : 24,000 : : 1 : 10 Therefore following the formula, for every nails used in the fence and out house there were 10 nails dropped. Q. E. D. which is very abbreviatedjLatin and might mean, this is where the calculator dropped on it. Another solution offered is that each nail weighed 11-30 of a pound. If so there were none to drop. But that is rather too thick for ten penny nails. THE COURTS. In the Supreme Court Judge Berry was en gaged yesterday in arguing a civil case, which was submitted. The Rover case comes up to day. In the L rated states Circuit Uourt, in the case of the Administrator of the estate of G. M. Wilson vs. The Dayton M. and M. Co., the motion made for nonsuit by Judge B. C. Whitman was overruled and the testimony for the defense and in rebuttal was received. Ar gument of counsel to be heard to-day at 9 o'clock Instructions were given to the Jury at 7 o'clock last evening. In the District Court Henry Fowler pleaded guilty to two indictments, one for house breaking, and the other for burglary. The requisite number of jurors were drrwn. A decree of divorse was granted in the case of A. W. Burrell and M. A. Burrell. That Walk for promenaders which will one of these days be known as the umbrageous walk, on the Capital Square, is pushing its slow length along. It is now completed three fourths of the way along the north side and it is the intention of the Capitol Commissioners to extend it completely around Capitol Square. When it is finished it will add greatly to the beauty of the grounds and afford lovers an op portunity for a delightful ramble. Ben Allah's performance at the Theater last night was a good one as far as it went : the house was jammed and the presence of un ruly boys on the stage prevented his perform ing many of his feata. All he did was well and cleverly done. The dove flying from the bottle with a ring, and the bowls of water taken from under his coat were the best. As a ventriloquist he is really superior. For Bodie. Our enterprising merchants, Messrs. Gilson- & Barber, are still pushing business matters in that thriving camp. Yes terday three teams of three wagons each heavily loaded with merchandise and drawn by mules and horses aggregating thirty-eight, passed out of town. This looks as if they meant business and speaks well for trade in general. Trade Dollars. We are informed by one of the officials that the government has authorized the coining of trade dollars at the Mint in this city. We trust this will enable the Superintendent to put on a full force again. E. A. BREWSTER, M, D Rl SJIDENT DENTIST. HAS remaved his rooms to the Savings Bank Building, Carson City, Nev.
