and how far measures of importance to

by one who is supposed to be responsibly

is appended in full;
Washington, D C, Feb 28 Fred
Hass, E-q Dear Sir: I believe I have
heretofore written you about Mr. Morri
son's absence in tbe west and tne cone
quent delay in the viaduct matter. On
my return from New York I immediately
cailed on Col. Whitney, of the judtre ad-,
vocate's office, and found that he bad in
terested himself for me in the matter. I
then met Mr. Morrison and tbe papers
were approved and ordered on their way .
The next day, Tnursdiy. I again called
on them and found certain endorsements
h-d been omitted. I had them made a. d
again started for the attorney general's
cflke. Friday I again called and could
find no traces of thtm. I enlisted Mr.
Morrison's aid, and after a long
search found them in the corres
pondence office of the war depart
ment. I then staid with them until all
necessary official correspondence hui
been made and accompanied them to the
document room, from wnence they were
sent, I accompanying the messenger, to
the department of justice.
Here 1 struck a snsg in the aoseoce of
the receiving and filing official. This
morning I was attain on hand and for
mally placed thtm myse f in the hands of
Mr. Bentley who is old reliability himself
in the attorney genera. office. He has
some New York City matters on hand
and 1 mast now wait until Tuesday at 2
m., Derore anything more can be
done. I have met with much courtesy
ana Kin-mess m tae udge advocate gen
eral's offl ;e, both from Col. Winthrop
and Mr. Morrieon. When I left them
Friday they boib volunteered that they
were glad that I came over, that my
presence had materially he'.ped to clear
up and expedite the matter.
I bad about ten minutes' chat with Mr.
Bentley today, explained to him the situ
ation at Rock Island, the ures ard needs
of the viailuct. and the general princi
cules involved in the qui-slions before
him. I find him an old man, very pleas
ant in manner, and dtcidedly bright in
mmd. He has the reputation among de
pariment Cliffs of tteiug one of tbe abl.Bl
men in the government service. I anti
cipate no trouole with him I have
called two or three tims on Gen. Flag

ordnance bureau, lie bas not vet moved

found a tuitaMe bouse. I have seen
Judge Hayes but once since I have been

I am heartily sick of Washington and
wisb I were at home. Tbere is to
much formality, red tape, delay, that it
fairly sickens anyone who attempts to
get anything done. The men individu
ally are not to blam; they are most of
teem worthy and obliging men it is tbe
system. I hope and expect t get home
n-xt week witb everything in good shape.

fears concerning it. it has grown so thin
