Washington, June 4.-President

The president said that under the
hill congress would have authoirty to
remove the comptroller general from
office and that this .authority should 'be
reserved to the executive department.

turning the bill without his signature,
Presi(ent Wilson in his veto message
"fi do this with the greatest regret.
1 am in entire sympathy with the'ob
jects of this bill and would gladly ap
prove it but for the fact that I regard
one of the provisions contained in see
tionl 103 as unconstit uti lonal. This is
tle, provision to the effect that the
eomiiptroller general and the assistant
comproller general, who are to le ap
poin ted by Ihe PI resi(eit, with the ad
vice and consent of the senate, may be
rem'iioved at any tiime by a concurrent
resolution of congress after notice and

see that authority for the exercise of
this power Is implied in any expressed
grant of 1'ower. On the contrary, I
think its exercise is clearly nogatived
by section two of article II. That sec
tion, after providing that certain
enumerated officers and all officers
whose apipointlent are not otherwise
provided for shall the appointed by the
President with the advice and consent
of the senate, provided that congress
may by law vest the appointment of
such inferior officers as they think
proper in the 'President -alone, in the
course of law, or in tile heads of de
partments. It would have been with
in tile constitutional power of the con
gress, in creating these officers to
have vested the power of appointnmnt
in the President alone, in the Prest
dent with the advice and consent of
the senate, or even in the 'head of a
department. Regarding as I do the
power of removal from office as an es
,ential incident to the appointing pow
er, I can not escape tile conclusion
that tile vesting of this power of re
moval ill the congress Is unconstitu
tional as therefore I am unable to ap
'prove tho bill.

that the congress may fInd time before
