THAT PUBLIC BUILDING "JOKER."
"Authorizations" Made, Hut Funds
Must Come Later.
Washington, September, 8.?About
the most unpopular government offi
cial around Washington now is J.
Knox Taylor, supervising archetect
of treasury. Not that Mr. Taylor is
not Binlllng, courteous and most oblig
ing to all persons on all occasions
and under all circumstances, for be is.
Hut unfortunately the predicament
that is bringing coals of fire on bis
official bead was not bis work, bill
that of the members of Congress in
the last session.
To make a long story short, on June
IS last. Chairman Bartholdt, of the
House committee oh buildings and
mounds, reported the public building
hill to the House for adoption. This
hill carried authorization for appro
priations aggregating $19,288,550, with
more than $3,00,00 addition for con
tinuing contracts, h provided not on
ly for the purchase of sites outright
and for the enlargement of new build*
lugs, but for the construction also
of new ones from the ground up. When
the bill passed and President Taft
placed his signature to the measure,
thereby giving it life, it was heralded
all over the country, both by press dis
patches and by special correspondents
from Washington that the great public
building had passed and received the
president's endorsinent; that Imme
diately every part of the country would
be Hooded with government money and
feel the effects of I'ncle Sam's liber
ality. Congressmen and senators
1.ousted the gooil news and did not
fail to pass the word along bow they
had helped the measure when it was
in extremis and bow. had they not
been present in just the nick of time,
the winde thing would have none to
smash. Then everything went well
until the postmaster at Charlotte
thought be would like to see some of
the aforesaid government money. He
m>t in touch with the officials and they
passi'd him along to Supervising Ar
chitect Taylor. It was up to Mr. Tay
lor to say that there was a congres
sional joker in this bill. That though
there had been an "authorization" for
the construction Of many federal build
in::-; (here was no appropriation, hence
no money. There Mr. Taylor left the
Correspondents here who have In
vestigated the situation have discover
ed that there is no money on hand for
there projects. Funds will be voted
during the coming session of congress
for these ? authorizations" ami the
dilemma will be met when the sundry
bill is reached. The projects are sali-.
The money will be appropriated, but
it is a peculiarity of the law that
though "authorizations" are had there
is no real cash. The same situation
applies to the entile country. I'. II.
