S. FOR FIRST YEAR More Than One-Half Goes to Allies; Slow Progress (.' Ship Building Cut: Expense. Washington, April 4. Nine billion dollars is the approximate cost of the United States of one year of war. More than one half has gone in loans to allies and will be repaid eventually; over one third has been spent for the army and military es tablishment: one-tenth for the navy and one-fifteenth for ship building. Just one-sixth of this big war cost has been raised by taxation and other ordinary sources of revenue, and the balance has come from sale of liberty bonds and certificates of indebtedness. Enormous as these war expendi tures may seem to a country whose government in peace times costs be tween $700,000,000 and $800,000,000, they are less than Great Britains and are only about two-thirds of esti mates made by officials less than a year ago. Slow progres of the ship building program and the retarding of the pouring of war supplies are regarded by officials as the chief reasons why expenses did not equal estimates. Under Billion Monthly. Government expenses now are running about a billion dollars a monthn with somewhat less than half going to allies, who spend the greater part of their loans for war supplies in this country. Since the declaration of dar April 6, 1917, the government's actual ex penditures have been more than $9,800,000,000, but about $800,000,000 of this sum would have been spent for normal activities even if the United States had not entered the war. 1 Ordinary expenditures under which the treasurery classifies all outlays for operation of the governmental machinery and war enterprises since the declaration of war, have been approximately $5,084,000,000. Actual payments to allies amounted to about $4,743,000,000. Income from Internal revenue, most of which is represented by war taxes, and from customs and miscellaneous sources, was run up to about $1,535, 000,000 and the two Liberty loans have brought to the treasury a little less than $5,800,000,000. .Small col lections from war savings and thrift stamps in the last four months amount to $140,000,000. There are a number of other minor receipts and expenditures but they do not materially affect the condition of the public coffer. Outlays for redemption of certificates of indebted ness mean little to the government in the long run since certificates represents short time loanspublic borrowings which are repaid, within three months. About $3,200,000,000 of certificates of indebtedness are now outstanding.
