His Views Upon the Disposition of the Surplus Eevenue. - Secretary of the Treasury Faircbild's re port on the finances of the country shows that the total ordinary receipts of the GoTern ment from all sources for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1887, were $371,403,277.66, the principal sources of the revenue being $217,28-3,803. 13 from the customs and $118, 23,301.22 from the internal revenue. The total ordinary expenditures were $315,835,423.12; leaving a surplus of $55,507,489.54, which, with an amount drawn from the cash balance in the Treasury of $24,455,720.47, makes a surplus of $80,0,570. As compared with the fiscal year l&iO, the receipts for 1S87 have increased $34,903,550.00. There was an increase in the expenditures of $25,449,041.47. The revenues for the present actual and esti mated fiscal year are $93,000,000, and the expenditure for the same period, actual and estimated, are $310,8 17,785. 4S of the surplus revenue. After paying a high tribute to the ability of his predecessor, the Hon. Daniel Manning, and stating that it is not necessary to do other than follow in the peneral lines laid down by him, Secretary Fairchild says cir cumstances have heightened the urgency of taxation reform as affecting the surplus revenues, by which he desires to be under stood the money which annually remains in the Treasury after collection of all taxes and the payment of expenses and obligations ex cept principal of the interest bearing date. To the question "what shall be done with this surplus revenue?" the Secretary offers threo suggestions, as follows: " (1.) The purchase of the interest bearing debt of the Government. (2.) .Larger ex penditures by Government for other pur poses than the purchase of bonds, so that they shall each year equal the taxation that year. (3.) Induction of the revenue from taxation to the amount actually required to meet necessary expenses." On the matter of purchase of bond's the Secretary says that it has this merit, that the interest on the bonds ceases witb their purchase; and is of the opinion that if the circulation of the money of such pur chase is not of more benefit to business than the amount saved by the cancellation of the debt, then the taxation is a burden to the people to that extent. The Government has never paid a gold premium for its bonds, save in three in stancesin 18S0, 1881, and again in the cur rent fiscal year. The Government, with these exceptions, has always Iteen in position where it could purchase or call its bonds at par or less, and has been in position the past twenty-two years to apply the vast surplus to retirement of interest-bearing debts on fairly good terms. There was in the Treasure "December 1st, barring all obligations, 55,-, 70 1.19, which, it is estimated, will be increased by the end of the year to 1140,000,00. under present tax and appropriation laws. The Secretary does not favor the enlargement of the expendi turesof the Government simply to expend money raised by taxation . The Secretary does not favor decrease of revenue from customs by increasing rates of duties, as it would increase taxation for more than it would decreasa revenues. He does not think it well to "abolish or reduce internal taxes; it is a tax upon whisky, beer, and tobacco," which are only in a small sense necessary to health or happiness; but he favors reduction of revenues from customs taxation, which should also be reformed as to their abuses and inequalities. He would add to the free "list as many articles as possible, and reduce duties upon every dutiable article to the lowest point possible. The gross receipts of the Government for the fiscal year were $525,844,177.C-$:'98,5;4,-609. 95 was in the Treasury and sub-Treasuries anil $127,o09,507.71 was in national bank depositories.. The Secretary thinks steps should bo taken to keep the standard silver dollar in its proper place. The Secretary shows that there are 3,805 national banks 2,219 being creations of Con gress and 580 converted from State institu tions with captital stock of $30,572,325; surplus, $10,004,250.10; deposits, $70,508, 718.31. Collections from internal revenue during the fiscal year amounted to $118,837,301. 00, beipg an increase over the collections of 1880 of $1,934,431.02. CHICAGO CHOSEN.
