The bulldlns: Is de signed for tho use of tho Patent Ofllce, while ; Ihe Mnd Ofllce will oontinuo business in the Interior Department proper, for tho reason that it Is desirable to retain tho land records as near home base as possible. In making arrangements for outside offices, however, the Secretary Is governed by a stat utory law passed during the but session of CongrcsA, which provides that "hereafter no contract shall bo made for tho rent of any building, or part of any building, to be used lor tne pnrpows oi tne uo eminent in tne District of Columbia until an appropriation therefor shall hove been made In terms by Congress, and that this clause be regarded as not I to to all contractors or lessors of any such building or part of any building." Under this law tho Secretary cannot bind the Government by any contract whatever; hcuce an arrange met. t for tho uho of Wright's building can only bo made subject to the future action of Congress The law waspnssed. It Is thought, to remedy a particular case, and while Its mettves are proper enough Its effect Is certainly embarrawlnr. Tlie Secretaries should be governed in some thing by tholr own discretion, and there is no reason for be lieving that all tho honesty of the nation is centred In Congress. There are emergencies liable to occur at any moment when tho Sec retary of a Department may be called iipon to do Just what Secretary Schurx finds a difficulty to do at the present time.
