Much complaint has hern made In
late years us t ? the methods employed
'by Congress with reference to rivers
and harbors legislation, and !t has
sown its seel not In vain As thu
Christian Science Monitor put3 It,?'pub?
lic sentiment is running counter to a
continuance of a practice which means
in effect n division of treasury recclptn
among the congressional districts, with
little care as to how the appropriations
for real or fictitious waterway Im?
provements shall be used.'' The fit: nr.'
policy "at Washington will ho to give
less uid nnd encouragement to repre?
ss ntativos and senators who are look
in;; for rivers and harbors nppropr'a
Hons ?'merely as Sops for their d!s
trlcta and States." There has domo
upon the nation Intelligent comprehen?
sion of the national needs In water
transportation and harbor facilities,
and such understanding win to far
to check the squandering of money
upon protects proposed only for the
purpose of putting money In circula?
tion 'at homo."
Indiscriminate waterway improve?
ment hills occupy a llirge pari of the
port: barrel, and Indiscriminate publ'c
buildings appropriations rveii more. ?
There I? great abuse In the annual:
public building iftglsla.tiohi The drain
upon the treasury to supply public!
buildings for every congressional dls-|
trlct increases annually; if It continues
to prow at the pres. lit ratio, it will not
be long until the outlay for new fed?
eral buildings annually Will be In the
same enormous class w'th tho army.!
navy and pension appropriations.
Some figures from the source ottci
above will tifiord an Idea of the drift '
of things In this department of govern- .
mental activity. Prom the Inception;
of the government up to 1'j02 the total
expenditures for public buildings, out?
side of Washington, nmounted lo $ia >.
000,000. Since 1002, more public build?
ings have been constructed In thej
United States than were erected In ihe
previous 12!l yiars. The costs of these
e ulldlnga??"2.74D.r.''e?was not so large
for the reason that in the longer period
some of the greatest and most costly
federal buildings now in existence
were put up. Those included custom
houses, sub-treasuries and postofTlos
in tlie larger cities.
In li'O.S the custom of reporting >n
the House of Representatives an omni?
bus public building hill was started.
Rxttavagance in public building ar>-j
proprlntlons was woeful before that
time, int afterwards it sheit upwards]
at a fearful rat.. HVcry congressman!
and senator wishing to show what
he Could do in the matter of bringing'
public money Into his district or Slate,
sought to have his finger In the omni-1
bus measure. A rush of bills fo]-|
lowed. As against ;2i buildings al?
lowed in tii.- last decade, bills now lic-l
fore Congress provide for the building'
of "50 structures, the <ost of which
Is put at $72,000,000. If only these!
were to be erected in the next decade,
th.'- country in twenty years would
hav<- expended In thin way $ | i.OOO.OuO
more than it had expended In the pie-;
vlous l.n years. Yet 'the $72,000,000
provider] by bills pending, represents
epiily a part c.f the amount that will oe
askeel before 1JI22.
Tic who:, matter of the erection of
public buildings calls for investiga?
tion tlr.-t and reform close upon it.
In many cases, appropriations are
going to places that have no ne,-;d of
fi dcral buildings. The government
maintains a supervising architect'.!
department; bul immense sums In fees
nr.- being paid lo specially engaged
architects. Moreover, It often occurs
that a federal building costing any?
where from $1,000,000 to $:,.ono,ooo is
found to be Inadequate, for the purpose
(Or which it was designed. The recom?
mendation hhs jie'cn made that the
business of erecting public buildings
bei place d in tlie hands' of a bureau and
it ought i.i be adopted, for Congress
is Incompetent to do thin lts<df In the
j bcsl Miter..st e.f thi country. Public
'buildings ought not i" be distributed

merely kept a few coops of chickens
to fill orders, not off-ring them for
