Ue Declares It no Shortage at All and Ex plains the Case. Washington. Aug. 27. Librarian Spof- ford, in view of various conflicting state ments regarding the sum of $23,400 paid by him Into tho treasury last week, was asked what the amount really represented He replied that It was 'approximately the amount due the t reasury on balance of copyright and salary accounts, as he found it. Unfavorable and wholly wrong construc tion, he said, had been placed upon it as representing a large deficit, whereas It was actually a balance between two accounts, a salary account due the librarian for several months' disbursements, and an account duo the government for several months' copyright fees. These accounts had re mained unsettled, although constant pay ments had Wii made by him. He emphatically denied any allegation that the recent payment was mode to make good any wrongful withholding of moneys due to the government. On the contrary the whole matter involved a bal anclng of delaved accounts, which his ac cumulate! lultors, constantly growing, had too long postponed. DOG STORY THAT TAKES THE CAKE.
