to the' State from Clerks of Courts, Registers of Wills and
Sheriffs, and State Taxes remaining uncollected in the hands
of the Collectors in the several Counties and the City of Balti-
more, prior to and including the year 1892.
The last named Table shows amounts due from Railroad
Companies and other Corporations for State Tax upon their
gross receipts as assessed under Chapter 559 of the Acts of
1890, aggregating $15,531.54. These claims have been placed
in the hands of the Attorney General for collection, as they
have been contested upon the ground that the law authorizing

In thus reviewing the various operations of this Depart-
ment for the fiscal year ended September 30TH, 1892, I have
done so without; extended comment, but I hope I have given a
comprehensive view of the condition of the State Treasury, and
I invite your Excellency's attention to the full and important
details set forth in the Statements and Tables herein men-
tioned and published in the Appendixes.
It is with great pleasure that I call attention to the valua-
ble and efficient services of the Clerks in this Department, and
my "thanks are due them, especially the Chief Clerk, for the
faithful arid conscientious discharge of their respective duties.
