One of the most valuable publications
ever issued by the government is a re

All sorts of silver propositions are be
ing talked over by members of the
lion Be. island baa been approached by
dozen members with suggestions of a
compromise. A return to the Bland act
s the chief compromise proposition sue-
gested to him, but Mr. Bland at present
reiuses to listen to anything less than
the coinage of $4,000,000 worth of silver
per month, and to this the other side, ol
course, will not agree. Uuibertson, a
Democrat from Texas and Chairman of
the Judiciary Committee, has prepared
Dill in the nature ot a compromise,
hich he will introduce in the House.
It requires the coinage and nse as assets
of the accumulated silver bullion now
in the Treasury. The present law is re
pealed and the Bland law re-enacted.
Representative Owen Scott of Illinois
baa introduced a resolution calling upon
the Secretary of the Treasury for infor
mation regarding the progress of the
public buildings in various parts of the
country, for which appropriations were
made in IsiH). Upon investigation and
inquiry of the Supervising Architect ot
the Ireaeury Mr. bcott finds that of sev
enty-five buildings, improvements and
extensions, for which appropriations
were made in law, contracts for the
erection of fifteen were let, and for
ten others partial contracts only were
let. On fifty others nothing was "done.
Mr. Scott insists that contracts for pub
lic buildings are systematically held up
becauee of the depleted condition of the
Treasury, and be would have it appear
that it has been the policy of the admin
istration to avoid every step that would
require cash from the government.

When the final permits for exhibit
space in machinery bail at the World's
fair are issued a ttorm ol protests will
be beard from every section of the coun
try. Less than half the number of firms
that made demands of Chief Robinson
for room will secure it. More than 1,200
applications were received, and only 500
can be granted. The 700 disappointed
applicants, some of them the moat ex
tensive manufacturers of machinery in
the country, will naturally object to
Chief Robinson's distribution ot floor
area, but they will not be aole to change
nis plans, aiacninery nan, at first con
sidered big enough to accommodate all
worthy exhibitors, baa been found to
furnish little more than half tbe space
the machine builders wanted. That ia
why Chief Robinson was compelled to
decline so many requests for space. As
originally designed, tbe hall was 842x494
feet. It was soon lound that a larger
building would be needed, and an annex
551 feet long was added, making the total
length of the ball 1,392 feet and its
width 494 feet This was considered big
enough for all demands that n on Id be
made for showroom ; but as the appli
cations came in Chief Robinpon learned
that another extension would be needed,
so a machine shop 1,103 feet long and 8tf
feet wide was added. Even with these
additions the space afforded is bat halt
enough to meet the demands.
