Jan. >egins the year without a dollar of in- debtedness and with a cash balance in ;he treasury. State Auditor Ken nay las completed his report to the Gov- ernor for the last year, and placed it in the hands of the printer. The total as- sessment of the State is an increase of nearly over the previous year. During the year the warrants drawn on the general fund amounted to 8226.806, and January 1, with no warrants outstanding, the cash balance in that fund was The most prominent items of expense tor the year are: Support of insane, support cf convicts, maintenance of militia, bounty on animals, support of deaf mute, blind and imbecile persons, Other expenditures were for salaries, the different stock funds, etc. The limit of the tax levy is three mills. Hitherto but one mill has been levied. This year two and possibly three mills will be levied to meet tho expenses of Statehood. Tho estimated expenses of the State government for this year are while with taxes and licenses tbe State can raise a reve- nue of over without additional legislation. The outlook for the first year of Statehood is flattering. DISASTROUS WRECK.

Jan. corrected mortuary figures for the past seven days show that there were 4S7 deaths in the city, an increase of about thirty per cent, over the death rate for the sama time last year. Of this number 203 of the victims died from pneumonia, bron- chitis and other respiratory diseases and from consumption. There wore fifty- five deaths from the latter disease, many of them beroT accelerated byinfltiefiwi and the prevailing weather. There were fifty deaths from bronchitis and eighty- seven from pneumonia. It is safe to esti- mate that ten per cent, of these deaths .were directly or indirectly due to the grippe. ________________ the Kijjlit-Hon XKW YORK. -Tan.

The Should the Views of a Majority of the la. vestlgatloK Committee be Minority Oppose Method of Settle- Blent. WASHINGTON, Jan. select committee to investigate the accounts of the office of the sergeant-at-arms of the House, commonly known as the Silcott committee, yesterday submitted to the House three reports and two bills bearing1 on the disposition of the diffi- culties that bave arisen concerning the responsibility for the loss of members' salaries caused by Silcott's defalcation. Mr. Adams, the chairman of the com- mittee, submitted the majority report, and Messrs. Hemphill and Holman sub- mitted minority reports. Mr. Adams' report says: "The ques- tion is whether, according to the rules of plain, substantial justice, it ought te be assumed that when the money was passed to Silcott by tbe treasury teller it was received by the members them- selves. Up to that instant the Govern- ment owed a certain sura for Congres- sional salaries. Did the Government at that instant, and by the act of the treas- ury teller in paying and the act of Sil- it in receiving the money, discharge the obligation? We believe that mem- bers of Congress did not then and there receive the money due them. The Gov- ernment did not then and there dis- charge its obligation to tho delegates members of the Fifty-first Con- gress, or to any one of them." The report concludes as follows: Your committee believe that delegates and members of Congress are entitled to receive tbe amount of the salaries al- lowed them by law for the period end- ing December 4, 1889, and not yet re- ceived by them, notwithstanding the fact that on tho 27th and 30th of last November large sums of money intended for tho payment of said salaries were by the cashier of tho treasury placed in the hands of C. E. Silcott, cashier of tbe late sergeant-at-arms. in his official capacity and in the regular course of his official business, and were by said Silcott illegally appropriated to bis per Sonal use." Mr. Holman in his minority report states that he is unable to concur in tho opinion expressed by the majority of tho committee that the sergeant-at-arms is a disbursing officer of the United States. that declares him to bo a disbursing offi- cer, or that Dlaces around the funds that might comeinto his hands tho safe- guards provided by lawto protect public funds in tbe bands of a disbursing offi- cer of tbe United States. Mr. Holman then discussestha various legal aspects of tho case and comes to the conclusion that the 13 simply an officer of the House of Rep- resentatives, charged with the disburse- ment of certain funds. He holds that the bonds of sergeant-at-arms Lecdo-n and Silcott expired with the Fiftieth Congress on March 4, 1S39, that the House was without a bonded disbursing officer when tho defalcation occurred. Mr. TTolman's report is voluminous and discusses every phase of the at length. Mr. FIcmphilL in his report, boids that the matter is not one thai can settled by Congress, on account of iu it be referred to the Court of for settlement. Jan.

A alarw 14 -Ti tbe Presence of an Euormous Concourse of People From All Over the State. A Fine Military and Civic Parade, Com- of of Militia and Mem- of 1'olltical COLUMBUS, O., Jan. elect James E. Campbell took the oath of office Monday at noon. His message to the General Assembly is compara- tively brief and touches upon a number of subjects of State and local interest. Special trains on nearly all the roads brought in militia and club organiza- tions yesterday from all garts of the State and the city was crowded with en- thusiastic Democracy. The inaugura- tion of Governor Campbell probably commanded a larger attendance than the inauguration of any Governor since Allen. The day was cold and crisp but the weather did not interfere with tho movements of the people. The inaugu- ral ceremonies took place at the east front of the Capitol. The masses could not be accommodated indoors. Govern- or Foraker, who was sick Sunday night from an attack of la grippe, was present to introduce the new Governor, but he made no speech. The address of Gov- ernor Campbell was frequently ap- plauded. The parade was one of the finest which has been seen on tho streets of the city for many days. There were over militia in line and nearly members of club organizations. All the cities of the State were represented, as well as Pittsburgh, Wheeling, Chicago, Indian- apolis andotherpointsoutside the State. Governor Campbell and family, assisted by the members of his staff, gave a re- ception in the Senate chamber last even- ing to the general public. Mr. Lampson was sworn in as Lieu- tenant Governor in the Senate chamber by Judge Spehr. ex-Lieutenant Governor Lyon introduced Lampson all the Republicans and but one Democrat applauded Mr. Lampson made a few remarks, but did not allude to the con- test for the Lieutenant Governorship. The other State officers were sworn in quietly in their offices. ALMOST BLOWN OVEtt. Position of an Electric Mast Wliirh Lost ltd Supporting CtEVEL.vxn. Jan. high wind of Sunday night tore three guy wires loose from tbe electric light mast in tho Public Square, winch is 250 feet high, and came very near blowing the mast over. The eastern and western support- ing wires were broken and ail that hold the m.ist in its place -A ere the northern and the sotithern wires. The mast swayed in the breeze in an alarming fashion and the heavy lamps at the top made the danger of toppling over much more imminent At one time the north- ern guy wire would be taut and tho southern wire slack and then this order of things would bs reversed. Had either one of tbos-j wires broken the mast would probably have crashed to tho earth. FO-STKlt HONORED. TWO CENTS. WILD WINDS IN THE EAST. Tlif by Ohio forl'nltol Senxtnr. O.. Jan.
