The total appropriation last year for
the propagation, distribution and inves
tigation of fish was $295,000. Of this
appropriation not less than $189,494.97,
or about 65 per cent., appears to have
been paid out for the propagation, and
distribution of Federal officeholders. A
somewhat curious item is found among
the expenses charged to the Green Lake
station iu Maine:
•Tayment of outstanding bills, pur
chase of land and rights, complet
ing ponds, repairs to quarters, and
for cisterns, pump, und well.
Examination or title to land.
How much more than the land cost
did the search of title cost? We wonder
which fish is propagating more rapidly
at Green Lake, the government salmon
or the government shark,
annex is probably no better and no
worse than any other of the paternal
istic side enterprises undertaken since
the theory began to prevail at Washing
ton that the function of government in
the United States of America is to super
vise all of the affairs of human society,
to supplement the working forces of
nature, and to look after the beasts of
the field, the birds of the air, and the
fishes that swim.
