C. s ihti of ni. The ubovc DemocDitic criticism of Stule expeiiclknres lor the yeui 1889, inulcr the ndministrntiou of Governor C. C. Stevenson is disin- genuous, to fay the leas I nud wil- fully fiiibleniliue to compare itwhh (lisburserneuts under th" Dem- ocratic ad in in ulrut ion of Governor Adams in 1886; nnd to correct ihr erroneous conclusions, aside from tlii! partisan insinuations of tholu- ilupciulent, we call attention to the fuels in the case, which have been either ignorautly or wilf'tnly sup- pressed by the writer of the ubovc' item. First, the year was not a legislative year, and the year 1889 was; and ihc expenditures of the latliM' year were consequently ausj- ineutod by the expense of the leg- islniivo session, which amounted to 15. in consequence of the legislative printing for that year iho expense of the Stale Printing OlVn-e wns increased over that of 188G by the sum of 39. Agnin, the salaries of the Dis- trict Judges were paid from ti-o Slate Treasury in 1889, wnile they were paid irom the County Treas- uries in 188G, and this amount of 10 cms no figure in the ex- penditures of the Stnte iu 1886. Again, iu 1889 the expenses of the special election, amounting to 160 66. were of an extraordi- nary character, nnd nothing similar occurred in 1886. Oilier unusual expenditures, duly authorized by law, were th'o nid to the AgriculMii-al Societies, State ami county, amounting to tlic now dormitory building at the Stale University, costing about the refunding of drum- mers' licenses of 11; and finally the deficiency claims of the years 1887-8, amounting to the sum of 88. The sum total of the above items is in round numbers about which expenditures were the result of the legislative year, and should not be included in a comparison of the disbursements of 1886, which was a year of no legislation. A comparison of State expendi- tures of the year 1886, under the Adams administration, which was 03, in a year, can be made more tairly with the expenditures of 1888, under iho Slevensou administration, which 17, and much to the advantage of the latter, for it in- cluded the salaries of the District Judges of 78, an item not occurring in the administration of Adams. And, iu conclusion, the compari- son of expenditures could not re- sult iu any case to the credit of (iovcrnor for they were up to the full limit of the appro- prU'ions made in 1885 by a .Re- publican Legislature; and, of the enactments of that session, only one was vetoed by Governor Ailamo, and that was to pay Cbarles Friend the sum of 60 monthly for the daily weather report from his (Friend's.) private observatory.

We expect to see the ludu- pemieut bucking a free coinage measure yet ou the grounds that the present bill led up to it. Questionable Tactics. The tactics resorted to by Mr. Fol -y's to gel blm into power would make even Barnum, the great Democratic leader, blush with envy. The methods of his henchmen are, to say the least, peculiar. While they admit Dr. Dawsou's competency and integ- rity, they say that the old Anylum light will be brought up. If Dr. Dawson's enemies want to up that digraceful piece of business they have our permission to do so, but we should, think ihiywouU prefer to bury it so deep that it would never see the lij.'ht of Dr. Dawson has nothing to fear from that quarter. They say, too, that if Mr. Folfy is nominated he will use vast sums of money to secure his election. That declaration puts lifu into the campaign, and is intended to catch one or two votes in the convention. But bow docs Mr. Foley propose to spend this money?
