President Harding: to-d- sent a special mes- sage to Congress announcing that the \Federal budget for the next fiscal ypur, beginning July 1, 1923. will bo approximately thrco billion dollars tho lowest yearly cxpendlturo of the Government sinco beforo tho war. Praising tho rigid economy which tho Budget Bureau has enforced dur- ing th last year, the President pointed out that tho Government 'a now back to pro-w- ar days In gcneinl expenditures. Of tho thrco billions asked, two can bo attributed to the war. Ho declared that his adminis- tration will contlnuo to fight for greater economy. lira messabo was a' letter transmitting the recommenda- tion of tho budget bureau. Tho President indicated that be cause nearly two-thlr- of tho Gov- ernment's yearly bill represent the fixed charges resulting from tho war. It will bo difficult to rcduco taxes In tho near future. The budget system, tho President declared, was tho \greatest reform In our financial history.\ Government expenditures during tho next fiscal year will bo J3.1S0,-S13.J3- 3, a reduction of nearly $G00,-000,0- as compared with tho expen- ditures of tho cuncnt year. Specifi- cally tho Executive nsked for appro- priations ot $3,078,949,331. 69, tho betwee appropriations and expenditures being attributed to tho fact that Congress makes some ap- propriations which carry over from year to year. Tho total receipts of tho Govern- ment during the next fiscal year wcro estimated at I3,361,S12,359. as corn- - Dared with $3,429,802,959. Theso estimates were based on no reduction of taxes and include a back tax collection of approximately $300,000,-00- 0. \That wo shall approach tho com- mencement .of the fiscal year 1921 with an estimated surplus for that jear of $180,969,125 Is certainly most encouraging,\ said President Hardin \While I am hopeful that there will be no deficit In the current fiscal year, 1923, if such a deficit docs oc- cur, this surplus for 1921 will givo a f mcrgln to tako caro ot It. \Tho sum of $1,256,715,939 Is pro vlded for military functions, which In- cludes military pensions, retirement pay, annuities and World War allow (Continued on Second Page.)

FIRST PRICE FIXING. Only Four to Five Days' Supply Immediately Available Here. Brighter prospects of larger coal deliveries for Now York City were seen y In tho announcement by tho Stato Fuel Administration that tho Erie and tho Lehigh Valley rail- roads havo shut down on their coal delivery service via the Great Lakes. This was construed by local coal men as Indicating that New York may expect from now on, through tho bal ance of the winter season, a much greater supply of coal, provided no snow storm Interrupts traffic and transportation sutllclently to strip this city of its local supply. Such a storm, it was said, would leavo this city at tho mercy of tho elements, duo to tho fact that only a four or llvo days,' supply Is on hand at sufficiently closo range to haul it to the consumers. For tho first tlmo In its history, tho Stato Fuel Administration y fixed tho prlco of coal. Buckwheat coal should range from $8.20 to $10.50 a ton, Stato Fuel Administrator Woodln declared. Mr Woodln rea soned, however, that tho trouble with pi ice fixing Is that tho maximum al- lowed Is very likely to becoino the minimum, now that a stated price has been promulgated by tho Fuel Admin- istration. Mr. Woodln said ho Is receiving complaints from all over tho State regarding deliveries, \This shows that the distribution is equitable, when you find them all kicking,\ Mr. Woodin said. Mr. Woodln explained further that aro complaining that Now York City Is hoarding coal and New York City folks aro saying tho same thing about the \This Is what I might call an 'un- - fortunato heulthy' condition,\ ho said. \It shows tho coal 13 going around, oven It In small quantities.\ He reiterated both his and Mayor Hylan's plea for conservation. Ho par- ticularly declared that buckwheat coal should bo mixed wtlh tho domestic sizes. It was pointed out that thcro is on the New Jersey side of tho Hudson River a constant dally reserve supply of 40,000 Ions of buckwheat. By January, Mr. Woodln predicted, tho coal supply for this Stato will bo 5,000,000 tons short of tho normal consumption. Mayor Hylan Is anx lous that Now Yorkers should bo as conservative as possible. He said tn part! \I therefore, urgo all citizens to assist tho City Administration and the Fuel Administrator an well as them selves by providing Immediately dur ing the open weather such substitutes as their dealeis can furnish. Tho quantity which may bo purchased at ono time of theso substitutes is not restricted. \It Is Important to bear In mind that the present aupply of anthracite coal of domestic sizes In Greater New York would not sultico for moio than four days, nnd that a blizzard, or even a storm lasting several days, would slow down deliveries to a point where from mere Inronvenlonco wo would rapidly pass into actual suffering.\ The World Ads.
