WASHINGTON'. Dec. 29. Two
of the 15 bills carrying appropri
ations to run the government dur
ing the year beginning next July
1, reached the house today and
were given more than the usual
preliminary scrutiny because of
the announced intention of repub
lican leaders to cut government J
The sundry civil bill, which con
tains the miscellaneous appropri
ations, as reported carries a total
of $383,611,262. This total, rep
resents a slashing of $420,914,192
from the estimates submitted by
the government departments and
a reduction of ,$52,237, 514 from
the amount appropriated through
the same bill last year.
The cut in estimates for the
postoffice bill, the other appro
priation, measure submitted, how
ever, was not so great and the
expenditure recommended repre
sented a considerable Increase over
this yar's appropriation. The meas
ure as reported carried $573,964.
721, a reduction ofi $11,442,181
from the amount asked by the
postoffice department but an in
crease of $69,530,021 over the ap
propriation for the current year.
Democratic leaders were prompt
to point- out that the sum total
carried by both bills.' if passed, as
submitted by the appropriations
committee would add. about $17,:
000,000, to the- cost or running
the gogvernment next year.
Republican leaders were equally
prompt In declaring that there was
abundant ground for gratification
on their part, inasmuch as they
had used the pruning knife on
estimates of democratic depart
ment heads without mercy.
Outside of the $223,000,000
provided for the care of the dis
abled service men and dependents
of those killed, the sundry civil
measure left only $160,611,292
for all other purposes, as compared
with $126,000,000, the amount
appropriated Jn . 1916i
The committee reported that the
increase in the postoffice "appropri
ation was due principally to the
$10,000,000 increase in the pay of
city letter carriers; the $36,000,
000 Increase allowed the railroads
for mall transportation and the
$12,500,000 increase in pay of
clerks and employes.
