of f J4.4K2.UU0. Now there 1 a surplus of f5.772.OUU. i Th Treasury situation would be even more favorable than It Is were It hot for the temporary and abnormal drain, on Its cash of Panama Canal disburse menu. Congress Congress last year exercised exceptional care in framing th appropriation bills, and th results of that policy are already apparent. The cos l of maintaining the military and civil establishments had been steadily In creasing -for -for several year. But at the last session Congress tried resolutely- resolutely- td check this increase. Its good work is evident In a reduction of fl.5uu.uo0 In the civil and miscellaneous account, of f l.Sov.ouo tn the Indian account and of t7.uuu.uuu : in th army and navy account. But th saving on thee items has oeen more than off seH by increased expenditures for public wurks. In the first nine months of the last fiscal year the ou'ay for public works waa f 34,33i .475, but ln th nine months Just ended the sum spent has risen to f44.lCS.S77. In1 March alone nearly fSOuo.iiUU more was paid out on thia account, presumably In parttal llqul da lion of the special csnal grant i carried bv the recent urgent deficiency act. This outlay should be, and perhaps may be. re paid to the Treasury when bonds to meet the co t tof canal construction are issueo In that evenl the real surplus for ; lutA-'tM lutA-'tM lutA-'tM will be more than f'Jo.iHiii.nm. But even with the extra burden of canal charges be tween now and June to carry, the Treas ury will i evidently b more thsn ble jo make ends meet. - I POLITICAL GOSSIP. 1 I , - X. A meeting of the Hamilton County Heifao- Heifao- crattc Executive Committee has been call. d for this afternoon st 3 o'clock at the Duckworth Duckworth Club, by Chslrmsn Nobel. The meeting Is for the purpoe of selfctlng a member of the Deputy 8tste Board: of Sup ervisors of Elections, which Is lf effect the old Board of Elections. The notices to attend the meeting were mailed) to the members Thursday night. . j The hut tie for the coveted position this afternoon will be a three-cornered three-cornered three-cornered one. and the friends of sll three candidates are claiming victory. The situation became complicated yesterday when the candidacy of Joseph Rothwss announced and with lt the statement thai he had the support of th municipal administration. Alfred lien deraon. newspaper man, had been the favorite of the administration up' to yes terday, when he announced that he wss not a candidate. Then the Roth banner was flung to i the breeses. The mere statement that Mr. Roth Is a receptive candidate changed the political map, which the members members of the Democratic Executive Committee Committee ponder over. His brother. Chsrles Roth, has Just, been elected County Treasurer, and assumes his office next September. Several Several of. the Executive, are applicant, for positions under him. - ! Mr. Roth also has the support of Mayor Dempsey. In spesklng of the matter yesterday yesterday the Mayor said; "There la; no such thing as an administration candidate In the sense of the administration trying to dictate dictate the: election of a man to the place. 1 should hsve been glad to have had Mr. Henderson elected to the position; but he declined: to be a candidate. I believe that Mr. Roth would make a splendid . member of the board in control of the elections in this county, and would certslnly vote for him if a member of the body."j Beyond this the Mayor wi ild not discuss the mat ter. " Owen O'Brien, who is at present a mem ber of the Board of Elections, and whose term expires, is a candidate for re-election, re-election, re-election, and has the. support .of Michael Devanney, who Is managing his csmpslgvi., The most of O'Brien's strength lies In tha country William J. McDevItt has the positive support support of l.ew's G. Bernard and Chairman Nobel, of the Executive Committee,- Committee,- and the opinion last night was that the battle will be between Roth and McDevitt. The friends of the latter claimed that he had 1i votes pledged, snd that he could depend upon that many. The friends of Roth claim that he has 22 pledged to him. As thers sre only 38 rotes In the body It will be seen thst some sort of a mlsunderstsndlng exists. exists. Thomas J. Noctor. the member of the Executive Committee from the: Twelfth Ward, Is fn charge of the fight: to elect Roth, and will direct the movements of the Roth adherents at to-Uay's to-Uay's to-Uay's meeting. It was prophesied yesterday by men of - wide experience experience in politics thst the vote to-day to-day to-day will be i very close and that whoever wins will be elected by a narrow margin. The eudden determination of . Chairman Nobel, of the Democratic Executive Com mittee, and Chairman Krug. of the Repub lican Executive Committee, to call meet Ings was owing to letters received from Secretary of State Laylln Thursday. Ia these letters Mr. Layiin requested that he be notified not lster than the 15th of the month of the selection of each committee for poet lion on the Deputy Stat: Board of Election Supervisors. Notice were mailed to all on embers, and those who did not re ceive them yesterdsy will receive them this morning. . ! In a i letter replying; te Mayor Tom L. Johnson's recent communication. Mayor Dempsey yesterday declared that he h no desire to be a United States Senator. National Committeeman or state: leader of the Democratic, party. The letter Is- Is- aa follows-: follows-: follows-: - , .1 "Both of your favors of th 3d and 4th Inst, were duly received by me. together with the newspaper cUpping, inclosed. The newspaper clippings afforded entertaining reading, and It was very kind of you to say w.hat you did concerning th United States Sen a tors hip and th National Committee ship, but, of course, so far as I tndivlduany ana concerned both of those propoeilion are the most absurd. Like most men. a little flattery pleases me. but when it Is rua to fulsome length it become nauseating. I have finished three months of th Mayoralty Mayoralty and arq praying; that th next 21 months may slip through aa quickly and as successfully ss the last three, when I will be glad to get myself back to the practice of the law. a profession that I more congenial to me than the arts of statesmanship. ' 1 1 'l am ln no flght of any kind sthatsoever for the control of th Dernocratid party or Democratic policies of Ohio, and do not propose to be dragged Into any such fight. Bo Tar as the Mayors' Association is con. earned. J am perfectly Indifferent as to whether It continues or not. For myself. I shall say that I shall bar no further active participation In it. It secured nothing nothing for Cincinnati, and what is! mar. It never indeavored to secure anything for Cincutaati. so that it would be a wast of time for me, who am interested in Cincinnati Cincinnati reforms, to wsste my energies In trying trying to secure those reform by fighting them through an organization' . which apparently 15 cents 4 copy Jl.tosveat live from any other city. It will be my endeavor to help, so far aa I ran. In the solution of these questions peculiar to Cm cinnatl. and In arriving at this solution It will also be my endeavor to see that no dissension arise in th ranks of those who. while they msy differ on certain line of stat or national policy, sre all united In endeavoring lo secure for Cincinnati a better better government and a change in the' conditions conditions that prevailed before the last election." election."
