Unexpended State Appropriations
To Local Hospital Are Re
turned To Comptroller
M’MULLEN REVIEWS TERM
"j The Emergency Hospital, of Anna
! polis is among a number of other in
i stitutions that receive Stite aid. and
: which is listed among those which
have returned to the State unexpended
balances of appropriations received
from the State during the year. This
j is shown in a summary of the budget
i savings, • contained in a report just
prepared.by Stjte ComptrolL r Hugh
A. McMullen, of this year's work of
his office. The unexpended balance
returned by the local hospital is $2.-
905.40.
Comptroller McMullen will go oui of
office soon. Yesterday he discussed
the management of the State's fi
nances, given in detail the amount of
money turned back into the treasury
since the budget system has been in
operation. He renewed his rec >m
i mendation that the Board of Public
Works sit once a month as a board of
review upon departmental expendi
tures and recalled the elimination of
certain fees paid salaried officii Is. the
! introduction of uniform accounting
and the institution of new licen-e
taxes.
Mr. McMullen, among other things.
; said:
“I have spent four pleasant years in
the office of Comptroller of the State
Treasury. When I became i candi
date in 1915 I stated that it would be
my purpose, if-elected, to handle the
State’s business as carefully as I had
always tried to handle my own; That
i I believed any one aspiring to public
office should have one purpose in mind
\ —to give the State the very best serv
ice of which he was capable. At the
expiration of my term I will have the
consolation of knowing that I have
served the State of Maryland as faith
fully as my limited ability perm fitted.
I do not say that the office has been
free from mistakes; it has not. hut on
the whole it has been helpful in mak
ing the present administration one of
real service to the people of Maryland.
