Representative Owen Scott of Illinois
has introduced a resolution calling upon
the Secretary of the Treasury for infor
mation regarding the progress of the
pubiio bnildings in vanous parts of the
country, for which appropriations were
made in 1890. Upon investigation and
inquiry of the Supervising Architect of
tne .treasury Mr. Bcott finds tbat ot sev
enty-five buildings, improvements and
extensions, for which appropriations
were made in 1890, contracts for the
erection of fifteen were let, and for
ten others nartial contracts oulv were
let, un ntty others nothing was done.
Mr. Scott insists tbat contracts for pub

Treasury, and be would have it appear
that it has been the oolicv of the admin
istration to avoid every step that would
require casn irom tne government.

width 494 feet This was considered big
enough for all demands that would be
