XI REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE TREASURY.
Registers of Wills and Sheriffs, and State taxes remaining
uncollected in the hands of the Collectors in the several
Counties and Baltimore City, as well as those unpaid by rail-
roads and other incorporated institutions.
The amounts due the State, as shown in Tables Nos. 14,
15 and 17 are in the hands of Attorneys for collection, and
it is my intention to require all delinquents to settle.
Tables 19 and 20 show in detail the disbursements of the
Contingent Funds of this Department.
Table No. 21 shows the condition of the Tobacco Fund as
required by Joint Resolution No. 13 of the General Assembly
The receipts and disbursements of the Commissioners of
Fisheries, as reported, are given in detail in Table No. 21.
Statements A, B, C, D and E, Part II of the Appendix
to this Report, contain the returns of Emoluments of the
officers therein reported.
It affords me pleasure to acknowledge the valuable ser-
vices and advice I have had from my associate in the Treasury
Department. If you, gentlemen, and the people of the State,
find any excellence in this exhibit of the fiscal affairs of the
State, it is in a great measure due to the sound discretion,
judgment and financial ability of your present State Treas-
urer. Besides this, he has, in conformity with the require-
ments of the statue in selecting the depositaries for State
funds, designated two banks that are paying two per cent,
interest on State deposits. The amounts received from this
source during the past fiscal year aggregated $2,400.00, but
I have reason to believe this sum will be materially increased
in the future.
My thanks are due the Clerks in the several offices in this
Department for the efficient and prompt discharge of their
respective duties, and I take pleasure in according them
their due in this public manner.
