luen of (he IIousc of Reprefientativcs:
I brought with me into this office a
tlrm determination to discharge the
duties thereof to the bort of my abil
ity. Th is determination 1 do not pro
pose to relinquish,' nor willfully to
full In theearrylng of it out. These
truths taken In connection with my
duty under the law'j to provide for tlie
perntively ilemand, in justice to my
self as well as to tho intprc-st of the
Stale, that I sliould cull the ntteiitiot'i
of the Ijegiiiluturo to the following
statement: "
It will be roiuemliered that the act
of September 0, abolishing tlie
"Board of Finance, etc.," specially
makes It the duty of the Comptroller
"to provide for tho payment of tlio
Interest accriuug on the State debt."
The Legislature will also remember
that I favored the enactment of thut
law, nnd said that if tlio Comptrol
ler's ofllco wa$ cut loose 'from the en
tanglements of a Board of Finance,
thq Interest could be surely and easi
ly paid. ,
lu coming to this conclusion, I
reasoned from what I supposed to lie
fixed facts: First, the resources of the
fetate, which I understood, ami
secondly, tlie universal pledge, from
the highest to the lowest, (us I under
stood It) that tho State debt would
not be increased, but that, on the con
trary, a number of our roads would
bo sold for tho bonds of the State, and
the liabilities of the State thus lessen
ed. Clulhed with tho authority con
ferred by the net above uluikxl to,
and with assurances that, no nioro
bonds would lie issued to railroads,
etc., I went to New York, uud, us
Comptroller of the State, gave un
qualified assurance from his Eexeel
lencv tho Governor, nnd tho State
Legislature, that tho imblic debt
would not be Increased, but lessened.
This tta'oment was believed to bo
true, nn'l, on the strength of it, I bor
rowed .I(M),ono at 0 per cent per an -
mini, when money there was worth
7 percent In gold on tall.
Besides this, main- narlles In New
ork. through tho Influence of the.
irieuas or our siate there, were in
tluenceil to invest heavily In
ixinds, not for purposes of specuUtlou,
but permanently.
The condition of our credit in New
York now must be Inferred from the
following, which I gave ns it Is?
' Since the Introduction of the bill
propping to increase tho State debt
nearly three millions of dollnr I
hiivo'reeeived tllspatehes and letters
