INDICATIONS 0F A SURPLUS
Customs Receipts Malting t'p for Loss
by Repeal ( ae War
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Aug. 22 (Special Tele
gram.) Notwithstanding the fear of the
Treasury officials that on account of the
repeal of the war taxes and the heavy ap
propriations by congress, they rale.ht soon
be confronted with a deficit, no such thing
Is in sight now. Although' ths expendi
tures so far this year have exceeded the
receipt by nearly 810,000,000, the outlook
now la favorablo that by the end of the
fiscal year all this will have been regained.
The recslpts from customs duties during
the six weeks of the current , fiscal year
have exceeded those of tbe corresponding
period of the preceding year by several
million dollars. Last year they were $33,
000,000, this year they are $39,000,000. This
increase Is altogether unexpected. The
officials of the treasury cannot account for
It, nor can they do more than guess how
long it will last. - All calculations ap
parently have been npset. The figures
showing a big deficit for the year have
been laid aside.
Those charged with the duty of figuring
out how-tbe balance sheet will stand have
given up in despair. Customs receipts are
not the only thing that puzzle them. They
are not sure yet whsther the $40,000,000
ranamerlcan canal money will have to be
apent, nor tbe money for the Danish West
Indies. ' , .
There Is ho official opinion whether
there will be surplus or deficit next
June. The loss by repeal of war taxes
will amount to $85,000,000. If the custom
receipt continue at tha present rat this
writ be recouped and instead of a deficit
there may be another surplus.
