Corporation of Washington 6 per cent, registered stock..... 517 22
Corporation of Georgetown 6 per cent. registered stock..... 1,513 00

35, 537 22 Leaving outstanding at this time.

.. 8, 405, 576 21 The bonds referred to above, as well as coupons paid to date, have been sent to the Secretary of the Treasury to be destroyed by burning, as required by law.

The interest of the various obligations of the District, as above stated, has been promptly met from funds turned over to us from your honorable board.

The early attention of Congress should be called to the necessity of appropriate legislation to carry out the pledge upon the part of the United States in section 7 of an act of Congress approved June 20, 1874, entitled "An act for the government of the District of Columbia, and for other purposes," and to prevent default or delay in the payment of the interest on the bonds authorized by said act, which interest is

by an act approved February 20, 1875, (amending said act of June 20, 1874,) made payable at the Treasury of the United States.

Permanent provision should be made for the payment by the Secre. tary of the Treasury of the interest on these bonds (known as the 3.65 per centum bonds of the District of Columbia) as the same matures. . We beg to renew our recommendation that the functions of this commission be transferred, by appropriate legislation, to the Treasury of the United States, where the funds of the District are now kept, its securities finally destroyed, and where the transfer of the 3.65 bonds is DOW made.

The operations of this office for the past year show a satisfactory steadiness in the financial affairs of the District, economy in the man. agement of its affairs, and a gradual approximation to that simplicity of financial method which sbould, in our opinion, characterize the transactions of this District.

We transmit herewith an estimate of the amount required to pay the interest of the funded debt for the next fiscal year, showing the amount required to be $516,895.57, or $1,465.31 less than last year; of which amount $348,600 is gold and $168,295.57 currency.

The interest on the 3.65 bonds being paid directly from the Treasury of the United States, as ordered by Congress, no estimate therefor is submitted by us.
