Gov. Foster, in his recent message to the general assembly, reviewed the state finances, He pointed out the fact that the assesimnent toll of 1893 shows an itcreas;e over the prio e:' ing year of $15.73,030,. due partly to a moer thorough execution of the laws. cliser assess ment of personal property and the gra'lual en hancement of v.:alues. It is also pointed out that the col:ls tion of taxes has been very close, so that the st:tIe now actually col lects a larder proportion of her proper r.:venue than ever before. With the surplus to the cre-dit of the interest fund, past due coupons and state warrants of 1885 and I1F6 to the amon'l:t of F ;l.R.,3 we.re re tired at a cost to the state of $118,)3O9. In alli tion there have eenl purchliaed ana retired $512.000 of constitutional an I consolidated bonds of the state at a cost of $1.0,931. There has therefore been retire:t during the year $1.313,199 of th state's debt at a cost of 6931,. 790.

Ifad no Ionds or past due coupons been purchased by the state there would now exist a surplus fund of more than $1.100,000, with every reason to expect that the fund at the end of 1894 would have been augmented by at least $400.003.

There are legally outstanding of these bonds $1,281,472. The governor declares that there is ample evidence in the possession of the auditor and treasurer to show whi:h arm the legal bonds, and that these offcials can readily identify all fraudulent or illegally issued bonds.
