REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE TREASURY XV

some other sources than are now in view, the ordinary receipts
of the State will not stand even the additional demands that
now seem unavoidable in order to carry to successful com-
pletion the work already under way or the obligations already
assumed by the State, and even these obligations cannot be
met or maintained except by the exercise of the greatest
economy and care of those entrusted with the expenditure of
the State's money. An increase in the present State tax rate,
which has been so rapidly advanced from 16 cents to 31 cents
on each $100 ought to be avoided, if it be possible to do so.

I beg to acknowledge my indebtedness to the Governor of the
State, to the State Treasurer, and to the Attorney-General for
their uniform courtesy and assistance in all matters of this
department, with which they have been connected or consulted,
and to add my appreciation of the zeal and fidelity of my offi-
cial force, and to commend the services of Harry J. Hopkins,
my chief clerk, which I have found most valuable to myself,
to the department and to the State.

Respectfully submitted,

EMERSON C. HARRINGTON,

Comptroller of the Treasury.
