SUPREME COURT REPORTS.
Three hundred and seventy-six copies each of volumes 170 to 173, United States Reports, were delivered to the Department by the reporter of the Supreme Court, in compliance with the provisions of section 681 of the Revised Statutes and of act of February 12, 1897, which have been distributed to judicial and other officers of the Gov. ernment entitled to receive them. The statements made in the last two reports regarding the insufficiency of existing provisions for sup plying executive and judicial officers of the Government with the decisions of the Supreme Court still hold true. The embarrassment caused by delay on the part of Congress in making further provision for this purpose increases each year. A bill in all respects satisfactory has twice passed the Senate, but, it is understood, never received any. thing more than casual consideration by the full Committee on the Judiciary of the House, though reported farorably by the subcom. mittee. It is greatly to be desired that action in the premises shall be taken by Congress at the earliest possible date, in order that this Department may be able to supply the volumes of these reports required by officers of the Government in the discharge of their official duties.
COMPILED STATUTES OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.
By the provisions of a joint resolution approved February 27, 1899, the Secretary of the Interior is directed to distribute copies of the above named publication to each Senator, Representative, and Delegate in the Fifty-fifth and Fifty-sixth Congresses not already supplied with the work, to each of three public universities or college libraries (not depositories of public documents) to be designated by each Senator, Representative, or Delegate in the Fifty-fifth and Fitty sixth Congresses, and to such executive and judicial officers of the Government not already supplied as may require it in the discharge of their official duties. In compliance with these provisious the work has been distributed to members of the Fifty-fifth Congress not reelected and to such cfficers of the Government as have made application for it. The remaining distribution under this joint resolution will be made soon after the convening of Congress.
MAP OF UNITED STATES.
Of the publications issued by this Department during the last year one of the most valuable is the wall map of the United States, prepared under the direction of the Commissioner of the General Land Office. Upon this, in addition to other features usually characterizing such maps, are shown by clearly defined boundaries the several acquisitions of territory upon this continent by the United States Government as determined after an exhaustive investigation by the present Commissioner. A copy of this map might well find a place in every educational institution, and especially in every public school in the country. The price at which it is sold-namely, 80 cents per copy, attached to rollers ready for immediate use—brings it easily within the reach of nearly all such institutions.
A large portion of the annual edition of the United States map published by the Department is distributed without being attached to sticks at top and bottom, so that it can not be made available for use by persons or institutions receiving it without great inconvenience, as few of them can, without much trouble, secure the sticks necessary for the purpose. Every copy should be supplied with sticks, so that when received it can at once be suspended and displayed, and so made practically serviceable. It would be much better to use a part of the appropriation in providing sticks, even if the number of copies issued were considerably reduced. Every copy distributed would thus be made available for immediate use, whereas at present very many copies are undoubtedly laid aside and never used at all.
It would also be emphatically in the line of economy if the entire edition were distributed by a single agency, which should prevent duplication. There can be no doubt but that under the present methods of distribution the map is duplicated and triplicated and even quadruplicated in a good many cases, as it is not only distributed by three or more agencies, but is distributed annually, which makes an annual duplication not only possible but altogether probable, thus aggravating the evil. No more needlessly wasteful method could well be devised. The remedy lies in a resolution by Congress providing that hereafter all copies shall be distributed by a single agency.
THE OFFICIAL REGISTER OF THE UNITED STATES, 1899. The compilation of this work was begun as soon as the returns from the several Executive Departments of the Government would permit. The first voluine is now completed and will be ready for delivery to Congress immediately after its convening. This volume is larger by nearly 300 pages than the corresponding volume for 1897, containing a record of the name, office, State where born, State, county and Congressional district whence appointed, place of employment, and compensation of about 97,000 officers and employees of the United States. Of these, about 19,000 are shown to be employed in the District of Columbia. They receive as compensation an aggregate annual sum of about $19,000,000. Volume 2 of the Register, containing statistics of the postal service, will probably be completed during March next.
