              GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE.

  168 men at an average salary of $700 per annum, $117,600.

                RECORDER OF DEEDS OFFICE.
Men. Salaries per an. Salaries.       DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

  Add to these figures the following reasonable estimates:
  State Department, $20,000; Navy  Department,  $20,000;
War Department, $30,000; Treasury Department, $200,000;
Agricultural and Executive Departments, $25,000, and we have
the following:

     RECAPITULATION.               
                                   State Dept. (Estimate) 20,000
Army . ............... $4,751,072  Navy Department......  20,000
Postoffice Department.     24,680  War Department.......  30,000
Interior Department...    271,000  Treasury Department.. 200,000
Printing Office ......    117,600  Agric. and Ex. Depts.  25,000
Dist. of Columbia ....     55,260
Consular Service......     25,000                     $5,538,612

  Then, when we shall have added the salaries of the hundreds
of postmasters, deputy postmasters, collectors of customs, col-
lectors of internal revenue, with their thousands of deputies, the
numerous watchmen, custodians of public buildings in many
States, we can readily figure the enormous sum of $6,000,000
salary drawn by the Negro under the open-handed and generous
Administration of William McKinley!


  Argument is unnecessary.   These figures furnish sufficient
food for thought and serious reflection.     The  comfort,  joy,
pleasure, profit, prosperity and heretofore unknown opportuni-
ties brought to the millions of homes of the colored American
by this unparalleled influx of remuneration is sufficient commen-
