The surplus of Government receipts to the end of the third quarter of the current fiscal year over expenditures is $33,831,911. On the same proportion the surplus for the year would reach about fifty million dollars. Owing to the payment of heavy deficiency appropriations made upon the adjournment of Congress, and of $3,000,000 for Phillippine relief, the March addition to the surplus was only $450,434. If payment should be made on the Panama account before the close of the fiscal year, June 30, the entire surplus would be used.

For the month of March the total receipts were $45,435,434, made up of customs $23,709,968; internal revenue, $18,823,751, and miscellaneons, $2,901,715. The expenditures amounted to $44,985,000, made up of civil and miscellaneous, $13,107,000; war, $12,279,000; navy, $7,374,000; Indians, $1,052,000; pensions, $10,698,000, and interest, $484,000.
