was really enormous, and they wero
all desperately hungry, somo of them

for nearly 24 hours. The police did
everything possiblo to keep back tho
crowd, but suddenly the masses, con
trolled by some inexplicable impulse,
or impatient to get at the food, pressed
forward, swept everything beforo
them, and overturned tables and
benches as if mado of grass, trampling
hundreds under foot and crushing tho
life out of a great number of people.

A more btartlln feature of this bill Is Its

Thout-h the payment of these contracts are. In

therefore, this bill becomes a law, tho obllea
lions which will bo Imposed on the govern

ooj.ooa Nor Is this all. The bill directs numerous

In lew of tho obligation Imposed upon rr.e
by the constitution it stems to me quite clear
that I only dl ensure a duty to our peoplo
when Iiircrpo.o mvdlsjpprotal of to legi
latlon propoiel Maa of the objec'.s for
which it appropriates public money aro not re
lated to the public welfare, cs I n inr of tBem
arc palpably for tLe benefit cf limited local
ities or In aid of individual Interests. Oa tho
face of the bill, it uppears that not a few of
these alleged Improvements hae been so im
provtdently j lamed and prosecuted that after
an unwise expenditure of millions of dollars
new experiments for their accomplishment
has been entered upon.
While those entrusted with the management
of publie fund In the interest of all the
peoplc.can hardly Justify questionable expend
itures for public works by pleading the opin
ions of engineers or others as to the practica
bility of mch wor. It appears that some of
the projects for which appropriations are pro
posed in this bill have been entered upon with
out the approval or against the objections of
the examining enIneers. I learn from official
sources that there are appropriations con
tained in the bill to pay for wor.c which pri
vate parties have actu illy agreed with the gov
ernment to do in consideration of their occu
pancv of public property.
Whatever of doubt about the propriety may
have escaped observation or may have been
tolerated In previous executive approvals of
similar bills, I am convinced that the bill now
under consideration will open the way to In
sidious and increasing abuses, and Is itself so
extravagant as to bo especially unsulted to
these times of depressed business and result
ing disappointment la government revenue.
This consideration is emphasized bv the
prospect that tho public treasury will be con
fronted with other appropriations made at the
present slon of couirrcjs amounting f i moro
than -00 iXiO.'WJ. Individual economy nnd care
ful expenditures aro sterling virtues which
lend to thrift and comfort. Kconoaiy and tho
exaction of clear Justine itlon for the appropri
ation of public monejs by th3 servants of th.0
people are not only virtues, but solemn obli
gations. To the extent tb.v. the appropriations con
tnlneJ in this bill aro Instigated by private in
terests and to promote local or individual pro
ject, taeir couununnce cannot fall to stimu
late an injurious paternalism and encourage a

and expectation of direct and cspeciil

they aro realized tmy furnish an
estimate of tho value of governmental care.
I bellevo no greater danger confronts us us a
nation than the unhappy decadence among oar
