has been stiuggling for her liberty,
just as we were years ago, and with

been enjoying the blessings of libeity
and free government for these many
years. We have been forced by an
adverse administration, although a
resolution was passed by congress
sympathizing with the insurgents, to
stand idly by, seemingly unconcerned
in what tLe result might be.
The question of Cuban independence
has been discussed, yet the public gen
erally here has known nothing of the
work which has been going on for
some time past. The quiet work done
resulted in a meeting last night at
which Wm. Neville was chosen chair

in and the following resolutions wore

A paper was then circulated for

COUNTING THE COST.
ECONOMY IN MANAGEMENT OF THE
No Foundation to the Personal Claims
Made by Got. Holcomb-Republican Of
ficial Have Entire Control or State In
stitutions and the Disbursement of Funds.
The claim made by Governor Hol
comb that he has saved $200,000 to the
state during his term of office by reason
of his economical administration of state
affairs will not stand even the most su
perficial investigation. In the first place,
there has been no each saving. In the
6econd place, the governor has nothing
whatever to do with the expenditure of
state moneys. The governor appoints
the heads of all state institutions except
the two industrial schools, which are
appointed by the board of public lauds
and buildings; commander of soldiers'
home at Milford, appointed by above
board and approved by the governor,
and superintendents of industrial home
at Milford, and home of the friendless
at Lincoln, appointed by a board of
Supplies for all institutions are pur
chased by the board of purchase and
supplies, consisting of the governor as
chairman, commissioner of public lauds
and buildings as secretary, the secre
tary of state, attorney general and state
treasurer at present four republicans
and one popu'ist. The law requires that
the secretary of the board shall adver
tise for bids, that the board shall meet
on the first day of each quarter, aud
that bids shall then be opened aud con
tracts awarded to lowest responsible
bidder. The contracts for supplies are
then enforced by the board of public
lands and buildings, of which the gov
ernor is not a member.
Section 19 of the constitution defiues
the powers and duties of the board of
public lands and buildings as having
charge and supervision of all buildings.
grounds and lauds of the state, and all
institutions except those for edacational
The legislature of 1877 (section three
revised statutes) under the heading.
"Custody of Buildings," gave force to
the above provision. Under the head
ing, "Disbursements ot Funds" (sec
tion four), the statute says: "The said
board shall have power, under the re
striction of this act, to direct the gen
eral management of all the said institu
tions and be responsible for the proper
disbursements of the funds appropriated
for their maintenance," etc. Under
section six the board is given power to
pass upon accounts of the "public offi
cers" or heads of these institutions.
Under section 6, the board having passed
upon accounts, the auditor is directed to
issue warrants in payment thereof.
Thus it will be seen that the governor
has nothing at all to do with the control
or management of state institutions, or
the auditing, approving or payment of
bills contracted, those duties being en
tirely within the scope of the board of
public lands and buildings, of which he
is not even a member. But if Gov.
Holcomb is correct when he states that
the sum of $ 200,000 has been saved dur
ing his administration, the credit would
be due to the board of public lands and
buildings. This board would be glad to
have the credit for the saviug. The
fact is, however, that the appropriations
are barely sufficient for the running ex
penses of the state and state institu
tions, and with six months of the bien
nial period yet to run it may appear
that they are insufficient. Still the
board believes that by the practice of
economy in all directions, in keeping
with the policy of the past two years,
the appropriations will be made to suf
fice. The legislature of ib03 appropriated
$792,610 for expenses of state govern
ment and institutions. The legislature
of 1895 appropriated $780,276. A saviug
it will be noticed, of $12,000.
It is trne, too, that there are more
people to care for than ever before, aud
this is done with a smaller appropria
tion. A comparison of cost of supplies
during three years shows that a con
siderable saving has been effected.
Lump coal was worth $3.70 in 1893
and $2.99 in 1896. Other grades about
Men's shoes in 1893 were $2.r. In
1895 and lfc96, only 96 cents and $1.10.
Women's shoes in 1893 were $1.77, in
1896 only $1.10.
Coffee 1893, 22c per lb.; 18G6, I5.
Syrup 1893, 23c to 2?c per gal.; 1898,
Sugar Extra C, 1&93 $5 40 per cwt.;
1896, $4.99. Granulated, 1893, $5.90 per
cwt.; 1896, $4.99.
All wool suits in 1893 cost $3.00, now
Muslin and flour unchanged.
The reader will thus see how the
greater number of people can be cared
for in 1895 and 1896 at less expense.
Some people may think it is a light
thing to mislead the public for political
purposes, but the members of the board
of public lands and buildings would
rather tell the truth than be governors.
The records of the several offices in
the state house occupied by republicans
are always open to the public for inspec
tion during office hours, and the board
invites inspection. Each official is ready
at any and all times to account for his f

wherever he goes, and if he only had
the time to travel all oyer the state, not
only every republican, but every intelli
gent democrat, would vote for him. He
is an earnest, sincere man, honest in
every fiber of his being, and will make
an ideal governor of this great com
