member of Congress receives a cor- ,
tain number of copies of nil gov

thousands arc sent out from Ibo
government printing office every

very valuable, being illustrated
with lim' colored plates, expensive
map-, etc. For instance, u report

i nt cut ion of the la w which Hulkes

the publications should go to the
public libraries in thc various
States und districts. This i- the
disposition made of them hy moat
members. There are few, however,
who arc said toseH?thc publications
which thus come into their bands.
Cases of this kind ure know n lo
have occurred within Hie Inst few
w eeks, one old book dealer having
orders from certain members for
all thc publications due them. Of
course, these honorable gentleman
will say that their constituents
don't want that kind of publication,
ami they might ns well sell them
ns IO have them Ile around and fi
nally go to the junk dealer, some
one else getting the money. How -
