Washington. Sept. 10. Comptroller
Uowler will soon have another oppor
tunity to decide w hether officials of the
executive branch of the covernment
have the right to exercise discretion in
carrying out the provisions of acts of
longress which direct the execution of
specilied public work and appropriate
ranney therefor. Bowler's position on
the Hujrar bounty appropriation, also
the decision of the supreme court,
which threw his views to the four
winds, are fresh in the memory of ev
ery one. That was an instance where
the comptroller prnpon-d and the su
preme court disposed. In the case
which Is to come up ltowler will have
to consider the intent of the sections of
the lust river and harbor appropriation
ai t in the light of that high tribunal's
recent ruling. It is impossible to say
how he will decide the questions in
volved, but It is of interest to note
what the questions are and how they
Ikvpartmr-nt CaJta for ICrports.
In the act for the present fiscal year
provision is made for improvements at
numerous points throughout the coun
try, and spceilic sums are appropriated
for the worK. In every instance the
ateivMys to be Improved ure distinct
ly stated, as well as tm- amounts made
available for tile neivssavy labor. It
will be rememlK red that the bill, afVr
passing the house and senate, was ve
toed by the president, and that subse
quently ei UKiess adopted the measure
over tho veto. Improvements in pur
suance of the pro visions nf the act'
are made under the direction of the
chief of engineers of the army, acting
lor the secretary of war. A.-cording
to custom, oilice-s of the engineer corps
were recently informed as to the im
provements authorized, and rcquKted
to forward to the war department re
pot is relative to the feasibility of mak
ing the same. A number of reports of
the hind, in more or less detail, have
reached the war department.

In some of these the officers ad
dressed have stated officially that the
proposed improvements are neither
practicable- nor advisable. In a few
cases the reports say that the certain
tvatenvajs 'specified in the act are of
such insignificance that it would not
be economy to expend any money to

Should, tiien. the mandate of congress
ho c-nried nut? This is the question
that bothers the thief of engineers.
In his dilemma he has appealed to
the secretary of war. upon whom, real
ly, the responsibility for executing the
provisions of the river and harbor
appropriations rests. The secretary t.f
war now lias the matter under advise
ment, and is giving it close considera
tion. He proposes to make haste slow
ly in reaching a conclusion as to what
course to plllSlle.
II OM ti n WltX 1IATK TO DECIDE.
May Hold That Iwie of the Appropria
tion Cannot lte Card.
I'ltimateiy, official, at the war de
partment say. the ieg.-.i poinst involved
will have to be laid before the comp
troller of the treasury for a decision.
They do not believe that Lamont has
the power or inclination to settle the
question without reference to the
comptroller. The authorities decline
to give information as to which im
provements provided for in the appro
priation act have been reported to lie
impracticable. Their reasons for si
lence an- obivous. Interested in every
section of the a t Is at least one mem
U r nf congress." If a senator or rep
resentative learns that an of the en
gineer corps had reported that im
provements in his state or district are
iTiadivisable or impracticable, the war
department would soon be flooded with
Kioni what Is said at the war depart
ment, it would seem likely that the
comptroller will hold that Mime of the
rovisiots of the apropriation act should
la- gnoied. One ofikial has thus put
the case: Congress has provided for
improvements at places where it is
prai tidily im:ossihle to make them
r.nd at ethers where it would la? ex
travaganie to do so. He stated that
under the circumstances the executive
branch ought to have some legal dis
cretion. "What is wanted is some data to lay
la-fore the committees, giving correct
ilif.il illation as to Improvements re
quired. Preliminary surveys and esti
mate of the enft of propu.s.-U work
should yearly be prepared before con
gress convenes. No improvements
should Ik- appropriated for which are
ti"t recommended by experts. This
Would relieve the committees of em
barrassments and be of advantage to
the treasury. It would prevent the oc
currence of annoying nistances such
as we have to deal with now.' The
speaker said that he suposed Jhere
would be a big protest if it was de
cide not to carry out some of the pro
visions of the new law.
He doubted if the executive branch is
authorized under the statutes to refuse to
do any work directed by congress that It

was possible to carry out. Hut in rases
w here ollieers of the engineer c-orjis found
upon inspection that improvement speci
fied could not be made without extraordi-
nary exertion aud outlay he thought the
provision of the appropriation act should
be ignored and a report of the facta be
made to congress at the next session.
