bureau ot American republics, to be
printed in English, Spanish and Por

to be shared by the several American

library, commemorative of the pan
American conference. The library- to
be established by contributions from
all the governments represented at the
conference. The library to be dedi
cated -at the fourth centennial of the
discover of America.
Blaine requests an appropriation of
2oO,lXX) for a building to be used as a
bureau of, information and library,
said building to contam an assembly
hall for such conference as may bo
held in the future.
He also recommended the organiza
tion of an 'International Union ot the

represented at Washington by a
bureau called the "Commercial Bureau
of American Republics," and it is to
