Pressent Appropriation System Wasteful Declares Cannori Former Speaker Insists That a Single Com mittee of the House Should Make Up the Budget. ? "When Congress consents to the ex ecutive making the budget It will have surrendered the most Important part ol a representative government,'* ?ay? "Uncle Joe" Cannon, former Speaker of the House. In October Harper'? Magazine. "The head? of the departments want to make the budget of expendititre? and compel Congress to levy taxe? according to their plans for expendi tures. The Pharaohs had that kind of a budget system, and so had the Czars of Russia. It was not the ays tern embodied In the American Consti tution." ?I believe that the House of Repre aentativea should have one committee with jurisdiction over appropriations, and that the House should stand firm ly for its budget, because it is the one branch of Congress to which the Con stitution committed this responsibility and the one which the people hold re- ? sponsible for the budget, which in cludes taxation as well as expedi ture." The taxing power should always be close to the people, insists "Uncle j Joe." "When we create a budget commission we should keep it in Con gress and as far as possible in the ! House of Representatives, which 1?! directly reponsible to the people on the basis of population. If we leave any part of it to the executive we ?hall only exaggerate the present em barrassments." Trarn System to Revenge. The present extravagance In the appropriation of the people's money he traces to the desire of the Demo crat? of the Forty-ninth Congress for political revenge on Representa tive Samuel J. Randall, then chair man of the Committee on Appropria tions. Randall was a protective tariff Democrat, and had led the fight in the Forty-eighth Congress which defeated the bill of William R. Morrison, chairman of the Com mittee on Way? and Means, to re duce the tariff horizontally to a point where it would be for revenue only. In the Forty-ninth Congress Morrison had his revenge In the dis tribution of appropriations. He in troduced a rule at the beginning of the session which was reported by the Committee on Rules and adopted by the House, giving Jurisdiction of appropriation? as well as legisla tion for the various depsrtments of government to the several commit tees on Military Affairs. Naval Af fairs. Postofflces. Agriculture, Indian Affairs and Foreign Affairs. It was the beginning of executive interference In legislation which, ac cording to "Uncle Joe." has lead to executive dominance in legislation for appropriations to meet the de mands of the spenders instead of the I demands of the taxpayers. Instead ! of having one committee to act as ! an auditing body to keep the na tional expenditures within the na-1 tional revenues, half a dozen com- ! mittees were given this Jurisdiction. I The inevitsble result was a big in centive to extravagance and the more careless appropriation of pub lie money. Other Ev-U la rretvr.t Sr-tess. Waste and carelessness In spending the people's money are not the worst evils of the present system, in the opinion of the former Speaker. "Un der our present plan of distributing appropriation bills to half a dozen committees of the House and as many more in the Senate we have opened the door for executive officers to formulate policies. "Trie multifarious duties of the member? of Congress in considerin.tr 25.000 bills Justifies them In follow ing the committee? having Jurisdic tion, but this tendency of the ex ecuttve departments to formulate gov ernment policies without regard to their conflict with other policies of other departments, and without con sideration of the revenues, is the one great embarrassment In the pr?s ent plan. Government policiea Should be made by Congress, not by th? ex ecutive ofllcer?. whose function la to administer tbe law, not make the lam. And In inaugurating new government policies Congres? should consider them apart from appropriation bills." ?applies Stanila?? Statistic?. The former Speaker supplies startling statistica to reinforce his argument that we should return to a single Congressional committee on appropriations, and stop our present wasteful system of half a dosen committees in each lions. "The American people .do not yet appreciate the cost of the war with Germany." he says. 'The appropri ations made by the Sixty-fifth Con gress amounted to 112.000.000,000. and the bills which failed March 4. and have been enacted by the Sixty-sixth Congress, carrying ap propriations for this fiscal year and chargeable to the Sixty-fifth Con gress. Increased the total to J4r.. 000.000.000. or more than the entire disbursements of the Federal gov ernment from the first Inauguration of George Washington to the sec ond inauguration of Woodrow Wil son." The Interest on the public debt, he points out, will amount to more ? than SI.000.000,000 a year. On top of this will be the annual national budget for each year to come. All told, it will amount eventually to about $4.000.000,000 or S5.000.000.0.10 a year in taxes. "We were all will ing and glad to pay any kind or taxes to win the war. but as we pet away from the war the people will. I I fear, feel the burden of taxation more than tbe benefits derived from the war. That has been the history after other wars, and even now pe titions are pouring in on Congress to repeal many taxes levied only a few months ago." "Government spendiate is like priv ate spending." sagely observes "I'ncle Joe." "and It la advisable to keep tho purse strings In the hands of others than the spenders. The fathers plan- j ned to keep the taxing power close to ' the people and not permit It to be exercised very long without the Rep resentatives having to be re-elected. All the checks lead right to the mem bers of the House, and they are held responsible for excessive taxes wheth er they originate them or consent to them when made elsewhere. So. when we create a National Budget i'ommlt tee we had better keep it pretty close to the House, which Is the part of the government that Is closest to the peo ple." WANTED DIAMONDS.
