TREASURY IS SHORT
DEFICIT, HOWEVER, NOT AS
. LARGE AS EXPECTED.
AMOUNTS OVER $89,000,000
Estimates Given Last December Indi
cated That It Would Reach
Washington. Treasury officials are
pleased at the present showing of the
government finances. Ordinarily a de
ficit in the government revenues of
$89,811,156, as shown by Thursday's
statement, would not be a matter of
congratulation. Nevertheless, at the
close of the fiscal year 1909, the treas
ury officials express much gratification
that the official estimate of a deficit of
$114,000,000, made last December, has
not been verified and are hopeful for
a continuance of the improvement
which has been especially noted dur
ing the last four months.
Since the December estimates were
submitted to congress, however, the
receipts and expenditures have shown
marked irregularity, and as late as
February last the expenditures were
increasing at such a rapid rate, and
the revenues falling off so sharply,
that it was greatly feared the balance
on the wrong side of the ledger might
by the close of the fiscal year reach
But a slight upturn in customs re
ceipts was noted about the middle of
December. Improvement was slow,
however, until about the beginning of
March, when large importations were
made, probably induced in part by the
prospective tariff changes. The re
sult both of improving revenues and
the strong holding down of expendi
tures has resulted in a greatly re
The customs receipts for the year
aggregated $301,2o9,863, which is an
increase as compared with last year
of $15,000,000. The internal revenues
produced $246,329,063, a decrease of
about $5,000,000. Miscellaneous re
ceipts from all sources during the
year aggregated $604,432,846, which is
an increase over last year of $3,250,
000. On the side of expenditures, the
total for the year was $694,244,002,
which is an increase over 1908 of
The civil and miscellaneous expend
itures amounted to $164,288,538. an
increase of $5,000,000 over last year.
The War department expenditures
aggregated $164,100,242, an increase of
$40,000,000. The navy account is the
only item in the list to show a de
crease, the figures for the year being
$115,988,869. as against $118,780,233 for
the year 1908.
Pension payments for the year
amounted to $161,689,423, an increase
of about $8,600,000.
The expenditures on account of the
Panama canal were $6,000,000 less
than for last year, being $31,420,286.
It is fully expected that the new
fiscal year will start with a series of
monthly deficiencies, notably for July,
when the new appropriations made by
congress become available. July last
year resulted in a deficiency of $24.
868,000, and this would have been
nearer $30,000,000 had it not been for
the anticipation of about $5,000,000,
representing the last payments to the
government account of the last indebt
edness. In July, 1907, there was a de
ficiency of $10,901,000, and in July,
1906, another of $13,511,000.

Revenue Receipts Are Big.
Omaha. Internal revenue receipts
of the Nebraska collection district for
the fiscal year ending June 30, show
substantial increase over the preced
ing year amounting to $313,232.95, of
which nearly $300,000 is for spirits
alone. The receipts for the year from
all sources were $2,437,268.75, while
the receipts from all sources during
the fiscal year ending June 30, 1908,
were $2,124,035.80. The receipts for
the month of June, 1909, were $222,
309.80. For the month of June, 190S,
they were $2L2,162.38.

TEMPORARY INJUNCTION ISSUED
IN SANK GUARANTY CASE.
M UP FOR FINAL DECREE
Counsel for loth Sides Will File
Brief and Circuit Court's Final
Ruling Will Be Made.
A temporary injunction enjoining
the governor and the' other defendants
named in the bank guaranty case was
issued, and restrains the banking
board named under the statute from
taking possession of the books and
papers of the present banking board,
restrains them from interfering with
the-plaintiff banks, .and from enforc
ing any of the provisions of the bank
guranty act and Sam Patterson, who
was appointed by the governor to act
as secretary of the new board, is re
strained from taking charge of the de
partment The order was signed by
Willis Van Devanter, circuit judge,
nnd T. C. Munger, district judge, of
the federal court. No decision on any
of the constitutional questions in
volved was given, and, both parties
consenting it was ordered by the court
that the case be submitted for the
final decree. The demurrer was filed
by the attorneys for the state and the
case is now before the court for a de
cision on the decree. Counsel for the
state was given until July 20 to file a
brief in support of their demurrer and
five days will then be allowed the
counsel for the banks in which to
make their reply. The court will then,
at their convenience, pass upon the
constitutionality of the law, though
Judge Van Devanter stated that a de
cision would be handed down in a
comparatively short time. In case the
circuit court should decide the law un
constitutional the injunction would
be made permanent and the case
would be appealed to the federal su
preme court. In case the circuit
court should hold the law to be con
stitutional, the law might or might
not be enforced pending the hearing
before the federal supreme court. In
the latter case the counsel for the
banks would apply for a writ of super
sedeas, which the court might or
might not grant. If it saw fit to grant
the writ in such a case the effect
would be that while they regarded the
law constitutional it should not be en
forced pending the decision of the
United States supreme court on the
case. It is thought by some lawyers
that should the-circuit court decide in
favor of the constitutionality of the
statute it would refuse to grant the
Right to Refuse to Buy Hogs.
Has a firm or corporation or individ
ual the right to go into a community
and buy hogs from one farmer and re
fuse to buy hogs belonging to another
farmer? Is such a practice discrimina
tion and against public policy? These
are the questions which a farmer out
near Ainsley has asked the state rail
way commission. He wrote to the
commission that a firm bought his
neighbor's hogs, but refused to buy his
and he desires the commission to is
sue an order prohibiting the firm from
discriminating. In answer to the
queries the commission said it had no
jurisdiction in the matter, but sug
gested that the aggrieved person might
consult a lawyer.
New Freight Rates.
Among the orders issued by the
railway commission were the follow
ing: Permission to the Burlington to

from Cedar, Creek to Cedar station,

cents per 100 pounds.

The Building Record.
The records of the office of the city
engineer show that thirty-four build
ing permits were issued during June
at an estimated value of $171,129. The
month of June, 1909, easily distances
that of June a year ago and May of
the present year.
Fifty-three New Banks.
Opinions differ as to the cause of
the rapid increase in the number of
state banks, but it is a fact that fifty
three banks have been chartered by
the state board since January 1. Only
a few of these are private banks.
Ralston Switching Rate.
The hearing before the state rail
way commission of the Ralston
switching rate case was concluded
last week. The railroads, which are
trying to change the $4 switching rate
to a distance tariff, are having diffi
culty in showing why a rate which
was put in voluntarily in the first
place and has been continued for
years, should be changed whennusl
ness seems likely to be Increased.
The inhabitants of the town claim that
an increased rate would result in the
failure to. build up the place.
