Crow, and asserted that Mr. Sproul,
while posing as a “God-fearing refor-
mer,” occupied a place at the top of
the list of officials bent on squander-
ing the public funds.
He referred to the appropriation for
maintaining the executive mansion at
Harrisburg as an indication of the
part the Governor played in seeing to
it that money provided by the taxpay-
ers was kept in circulation.
“During the term of Governor
Brumbaugh,” said Bonniwell, “Mr.

Who cares if the annual salary of

_ When blood becomes thin and weak
it is due to a falling off in the num-
ber of red cells. It is easily recogniz-
ed by pallid skin or a blemished com-
plexion, loss of appetite or unnatural
irritability and a sensation of weak-
ness. It is not dangerous at first. In
fact, many people scarcely notice it
: and go on for days, thinking they will
be better the next day.
The great danger is in the possibil-

trust because he spent $44,000 in | eri S eC 100 building owned by William Hipple, in the
maintaining the excutive mansion.
«This God-fearing reformer, Mr.
Sproul, introduced a resolution in the
Senate demanding an investigation of
Brumbaugh, and it has insisted that
he present an itemized account of his
expenditures. And this same Mr.
Sproul, when he became Governor,
asked and received $190,000 to cover
the same items. And in the last ses-
sion of the Legislature $750,000 was
appropriated for the Executive Man-
sion. Yet Brumbaugh was branded
as a thief because he spent $44,000.”
Judge Bonniwell asserted “footing”
is going on in all the departments at
Harrisburg, and in addition to the
figures presented dealing with the
Governor's expenditures, he produced
statistics showing how the cost of up-
keep in the Auditor General’s Depart-
ment, then under the management of
Treasurer Snyder, increased by leaps
and bounds.
In the first year of the department
under Snyder, Bonniwell declared,
clerk hire, expert accountants and
other employees cost $226,000. These
same items for the last year of the
Snyder regime amounted to $1,220,- |
000, he asserted. :
Bonniwell referred to Auditor Gen-
eral Lewis as the one honest and
fearless official at the gapial, “Just |
before he assumed office last May,”
said the Judge, “Lewis appeared be-
fore the House Appropriations com-
mittee with a request that the appro-
priation recommended for his depart-
ment be cut by more than $200,000.
When he took over the office his first
move was to turn loose employees
who were on the payroll and giving
nothing in return. And as fast as
Lewis let them out they were taken
on by Snyder. -
The Judge assailed the coal tax bill
passed at the session, attacked the
Welfare bill, with its enormous sal-
ary roll, and denounced Justice
Schaffer as “the tool of the bloated
corporations.” J
After presenting his indictment of
the Administration, Bonniwell asked:
“Who cares?”
This inquiry taken from editorial
exposes of State affairs appearing in
«The Record” should be adopted as a
slogan by taxpayers throughout the
Commonwealth for the present and
impending campaigns, said the Judge.
In his prepared address he said:.
“The Philadelphia Record,” quite
unconsciously, has furnished the tax-
payers of Pennsylvania, in the import-
ant political campaigns of this fall
and next year, with a slogan which
