ITEMS OF INTEREST
A Constitution has been adopted by the Filipinos. Following is a part of the preamble:—
"The object of this government is, first of all, to secure for the Philippine people the extermination with a strong hand of all vices, injustice, and cruelties, which have resulted from Spanish administration, sustained in luxury and expense upon our people, with extravagance and ostentation, and to substitute a government of the people of the Philippine Islands, which shall be simple, modest, just, equitable, and quick in the execution of public service, and for the good of the people."
In the annual digest of appropriations for the support of the government for the fiscal year ending June 30, and on account of deficiencies for prior years, issued at the treasury department to-day, the total of appropriations made at the last session of Congress is given at $673,050,293. The appropriations for the current fiscal year, which began on July 1, are $553,778,949, of which about $314,000,000 is on account of the ordinary expenses of the peace establishment, and about $240,000,000 on account of the Spanish war.
