member will denounce the bill
as a "poorly disguised pork-barrel",
the meaning Is at once ap
parent to anyone familiar with
American parliamentary slang,
for It has come to be the accept
ed equivalent of an attempt to
secure public ruoney for private
or semi-private purposes. A
"pork-barrel" measure, there
fore, is one which would enrich
certain districts at the expense
of the public treasury, either by
providing for costly Improve
ments or by spending money un
necessarily. To And the genesis of the
phrase we have to go back to
the earlier days of the republic,
when the majority of the citi
zens were fanners who, during
the winter, were forced to Uv
on salt pork. If their supply
was adequate and their barrels
well filled, thev said they had no
need to worry about a long,
hard winter the pork -barrel
would take care of them. In a
similar, but more metaphorical
sense, they now look to their
congressmen to take c.ire of

lation, which will lead to profits
on labor, land and supplies,
