TopograpMc sheets 

Note. — The Geological Survey is making a topographic map of the United 
States. The sheets of which it is composed are projected without reference to 
political divisions, and are designated by some prominent feature found on tliem. 
Three scales are used, 1:62,500, 1: 125,000, and 1:250,000. These correspond, ap- 
proximately, to 1 mile, 2 miles, and 4 miles to 1 linear inch on the map. Tlie size, 
unless otheVwise given, is about 17i inches in height by Hi to 16 inches in width, 
exclusive of tlie margin, tlio width varj-ing with the latitude. A description of the 
topographic map is printed on the reverse of each slieet catalogued below. 

About one-tifth of the area of the country has been mapped, nearly every State 
being represented. Massachusetts, Connecticut, llliode Island, New Jersey, and 
the District of Columbia are completely mapped. Sheets of the regular size are 
sold by the Survey at 5c. each: but in lots of 100 or more copies, whether of the 
same slieet or of different sheets, the ])rice is 2c each.

General Information 

With Reference to the Distribution of Documents 

EXCHANGES 

Excliaiiges will be made of surplus miscellaneous documents for such 
other documents and books as may be required ^vheu the same can be 
done to the advantage of the public serAice. 

FREE TO INDIVIDUALS 

The Superintendent of Documents is not anthorized to supply docu- 
ments free to individuals, except publications specifically authorized by 
Congress to be distributed to persons designated by Senators, Represent- 
atives, or Delegates. The only documents of that character now being 
distributed are, the compilation entitled "Messages and Papers of the 
Presidents, 1787 to 1897,'' by Richardson, and the Official Register, or 
'■Blue Book." 

FREE TO LIBRARIES 

He is directed to distril)ute current publications to three classes of 
libraries, to be designated to him by Senators, Representatives, and 
Delegates in Congress, as follows : 

To class 1. — Designated depositories; — one to be named by each Sen- 
ator, Representative, or Delegate in Congress. Libraries of this class 
receive one copy of each of the departmental publications and of the 
numbered Congressional documents. These include everything sent to 
the other two classes. 

To class 2. — Geological libraries; — two to be named by each Senator, 
Representative, and Delegate in Congress under the provisions of sec. 
79 of the printing law, 28 Stat, at Large, 601. These libraries receive the 
mouograplis and bulletins of the Geological Survey. 

To class .3. — Remainder libraries; — public and school libraries desig- 
nated by Senators, Representatives, and Delegates in Congress to receive 
fractional remainders of Congressional quotas, under the provisions of 
sec. 68 of the printing law, above referred to. Such libraries do not 
receive complete sets of public documents, because "remainders" vary 
from a dozen to four hundred copies, never equaling the number of this 
class of depositories. 

SALES 

The Superintendent of Documents is authorized to sell at cost any 
public document in his charge, the distribution of which is not other- 
wise provided for. Only one copy is permitted to be sold to the same 
person, excepting libraries or schools, and Members of Congress. 

PRICES 

Documents for sale by this office will be indicated by a (*) following 
the price named. The absence of a (*) indicates that application should 
be made to the Department, bureau, or division issuing the document. 

HOW TO REMIT 

Remittances may be made to the Superintendent of Documents by 
postal money order, express money order, draft, or check. In case of 
remittance by check the documents ordered will not be sent until after 

79 



80 February, 1898 

the che( k lias been collected. Any charge for collection will be deducted 
from th ! face of the check and documents sent for the remainder. Stamps 
or foreijn currency will not he accepted in ani/ case. 

Remittances to the Public Printer should be made by postal money 
order, express money order, or draft on New York. Remittances to the 
Geolojijical Survey should be made by money order. The War Records 
Office will receive currency as well as postal money orders if the exact 
amount be sent. The State Department will receive drafts on New York 
or Washington banks, as well as money orders or currency. 

All the Government offices which have books, pam])hlets, maps, or 
charts for sale issue price-lists, which will be sent free to all appli< ants. 
The prices charged are never more than cost and 10 per cent added, and 
frequently much less than that. 

All public documents, from whatever Department or bureau they may 
be bought or procured, will be forwarded free of post.ige to all points 
in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. To other countries regular 
rates of postage are charged, and remittances must be made to include 
such postage. 

A X£W FEATURE 

A new, and it is hoped a helpful, feature has been added to the 
Monthly Catalogue, beginning with the December, 1897, issue — an index. 

WHERE DOCUMENTS MAY BE OBTAINED 

General directions as to where documents may be j^rocured are given 
in the body of the catalogue.

Topographic sheets 

Note. — The Geological Survey is making a topographic map of the United 
States. The sheets of which it is composed arc projected without reference to 
political divisions, and are designated by some prominent feature found on them. 
Three scales are used, 1:6J,500, 1 : 125.U0O. and 1:250,000. These correspond, ap- 
proximately, to I mile. 2 miles, and 4 miles to 1 linear Inch on the maj). The size, 
unless otherwise given, is about I'k inches in height by Hi To 16 inches in width, 
exclusive of the luargin, the width varying with the latitude-. A desi riptiou of the 
topographic map is priute<l on the reverse of each sheet cat.alogued below. 

About one-tifth of the area of the country has been mapjied, nearly every State 
being represented. Massachusetts. Connecticut. Rhode Island. New .Jersey, and 
the District of Columbia are completely mapped. .Sheets of the regular size are 
sold by the Survey at 5c each: but in lots of lOU or more copies, whether of the 
same sheet or of diflerent sheets, the price is 2c each.

General Information 

With Reference to the Distribution of Documents 

EXCHANGES 

Excluingcs will l»e mado of surplus miscellaneous documents for such 
other documents and books as may be required when the same can be 
done to the advautage of the public service. 

FREE TO INDIVIDUALS 

The Superintendent of Documents is not authorized to supply docu- 
ments free to individuals, except pul)lications specifically authorized by 
Congress to be distributed to persons designated by Senators, Kepreseut- 
atives, or Delegates. The only documents of that character now being 
distributed are, the compilation entitled "Messages and Papers of the 
Presidents, 1787 to 1897," by Eichardsou. and the Official Register, or 
"Blue Book." 

FREE TO LIBRARIES 

He is directed to distribute current imblications to three classes of 
liljraries, to be designated to him by Senators, Representatives, and 
Delegates in Congress, as follows: 

To class 1. — Designated depositories; — one to be named by each Sen- 
ator, Rejiresentative, or Delegate in Congress. Libraries of this class 
receive one copy of each of the departmental publications and of the 
numbered Congressional documents. These include everything sent to 
the other two classes. 

To class 2. — Geological liljraries; — two to be named by each Senator, 
Representative, and Delegate in Congress under the provisions of sec. 
79 of the printing law, 28 Stat, at Large, 601. These libraries receive the 
monographs and bulletins of the Geological Survey. 

To class 3. — Remainder libraiies;— public and school libraries desig- 
nated by Senators, Representatives, and Delegates in Congress to receive 
fractional remainders of Congressional quotas, under the provisions of 
sec. 68 of the printing law, above referred to. Such libraries do not 
receive complete sets of public documents, because "remainders" vary 
from a dozen to four hundred copies, never equaling the number of this 
class of dei)08itories. 

SALES 

The Superintendent of Documents is authorized to sell at cost any 
public documelit in his charge the distribution of which is not other- 
wise provided for. Only one copy is permitted to be sold to the same 
jierson, exceiiting libraries or schools, and Members of Congress. 

PRICES 

Documents for sale by this office will be indicated by a (') following 
the price named. The absence of a (*) indicates that application should 
he made to the Department, bureau, or division issuing the document.

Toi)ograpliic sheets 

KoTE. — The Geological Survey is making a topographic map of the United 
States. The sheets of which it is composed are projected without reference to 
political divisions, and are designated by some prominent feature found on them. 
Three scales are used, 1:62,500, 1: 125,000, and 1:250,000. These correspond, ap- 
proximately, to 1 mile, 2 miles, and 4 miles to 1 linear inch on the map. The size, 
unless otherwise given, is about 17J inches in height by llA to 16 inclies in width, 
exclusive of the margin, the width varying with the latitude. A description of the 
topographic map is printed on the reverse of each sheet catalogued below. 

About one-fifth of the area of the country has been mapped, nearly every State 
being represented. Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and 
the District of Columbia are completely mapped. Sheets of the regular size are 
sold by the Survey at 5c each ; but in lots of 100 or more copies, whether of the 
same sheet or of different sheets, the price is 2c each.

EXCHANGES 

Exchanges will be made of surplus miscellaueous documents for such 
other documents and books as luay be required when the same can be 
done to the advantage of the public service. 

FREE TO INDIVIDUALS 

The Superintendent of Documents is not authorized to supply docu- 
ments free to individuals, except publications specifically authorized by 
Congress to be distributed to persons designated by Senators, Represent- 
atives, or Delegates. The only documents of that character now being 
distributed are. the compilation entitled "Messages and Papers of the 
Presidents. 1787 to 1897,"' bv Richardson, and the Official Register, or 
'•Blue Book." 

FREE TO LIBRARIES 

He is directed to distribute current publications to three classes of 
lilnaries. to be designated to him by Senators, Representatives, and 
Delegates in Congress, as follows : 

To class 1. — Designated depositories; — one to be named by each Sen- 
ator, Representative, or Delegate in Congress. Libraries of this class 
receive one copy of each of the departmental publications and of the 
numbered Congressional documents. These include everything sent to 
the other two classes. 

To class 2. — Geological libraries; — two to be named by each Senator, 
Representative, and Delegate in Congress under the provisions of sec. 
79 of the printing law. 28 Stat, at Large, 601. These libraries receive the 
monographs and bulletins of the Geological Survey. 

To class 3. — Remainder libraries; — public and school libraries desig- 
nated by Senators. Representatives, and Delegates in Congress to receive 
fractional remainders of Congressional quotas, under the provisions of 
sec. 68 of the printing law, above referred to. Such libraries do not 
receive complete sets of public documents, because "remainders" vary 
from a dozen to four hundred copies, never equaling the number of this 
class of depositories. 

SALES 

The Superintendent of Documents is authorized to sell at cost any 
public document in his charge the distribution of which is not other- 
wise provided for. Only one copy is jiermittcd to be sold to the same 
person, excepting libraries or schools, and Members of Congress.

SHEEP-BOUND RESERVE 

The following information is given so that librarians may, if they 
choose, add to the schedule of volumes at the back of the Document 
Indexes of the 54th Congress the serial numbers assigned by this office 
to the sheep-bound reserve, the same being a continuation of those 
assigned in the Checklist of Public Documents. 

54th Congress. 1st session 

Senate documents, v, l-15^serial numbers 3347-3361. 
Senate reports, v. 1-6 = serial numbers 3362-3367.

tion of a few volumes already distriltuted, the serial numbers will be

designated depositories. 

Volumes 17 and 18, House miscellaneous documents, 53d Cougress, 3d 
sessiou, appeared after the Checklist of Public Documents was issued. 
Consequently these volumes received the numbers 3343 and 3344, which 
bad previously Vieen assigned to volumes 1 aud 2, House reports of com- 
mittees, and to these volumes the numbers 3345 and 3346 were assigned. 
There is. therefore, no break between the numbers assigned for the Con- 
gressional reserve of the 53d and 54th. Congresses.

TopoyrapMv sheets 

KoTE. — The Geological Survej^ is maklnij a topograjihic map of tlie I'niteil 
Stales. The sheets of whicli it is cumpo,seil are luojeeted without reference to 
political divisions, and are designated by some proiiiiueut feature found on them. 
Three scales are used, 1:62,500, 1 : 125,000, and 1:250,000. These correspond, ap- 
proximately, to 1 mile, 2 miles, and 4 miles to 1 lioear inch on the iiiaj). The size, 
unless otlierwise given, is about 17i inches in height by l\h to 16 iuclies in width, 
exclusive of the margin, the width varying with the latitude. A description of the 
toi)ograpliic map is printed on the reverse of each slieet catalogued below. 

About one-fifth of the area of the country has been mapjied, nearly every State 
being represented. Massacliu.setts. Connecti<ut, Khode Island. Xew Jersey, and 
the District of Columbia are completely mapped. Sheets of the regular size are

INDIAN BUREAU 

[66th] report of commissioner of Indian affairs. 

^OTE. — Tlie. bureau edition of the report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, 
which appeared in February, was eironeously entered in the catalogue as identical 
witli the Congressional and Departmental editions, viz., v(duine '2 of tlie report of 
the Interior Department and House document 5. Where these three editions are 
identical in contents, the difference being only in title-page, they are combined in 
one entry in the monthly catalogue, tliough not in tho'annual catalogue. I?ee 
February catalogue, page'l21, wliere, in the entry for tbe 66th report of the Com- 
missioner of Indian Affairs, the parentheses and words enclosed in them should be 
.stricken out, as in this case the bureau edition is not identical in contents with 
the Departmental and Congressional editions ; for these latter see Interior Depart- 
ment, annual reports, in this catalogue. The error arose from the fait that the 
title-page of the Departmental edition has been given to the bureau edition also, 
thus making 2 publications with identical title-pages, one comprising viii -f 6(i4 
pages, the other viii + 1068 pages. The additional pages in volume 2 of the Interior 
Department report and House document 5 contain the proposals for Indian sup- 
plies and the report and j)roceedings at Lake Mohonk of the board of Indian com- 
missioners, with a little matter besides.

General Information 

With Reference to the Distribution of Documents 

EXCHANGES 

Exchanges will be made of surplus miscellaneous documents for such 
other documents and books as may be required when the same can be 
done to the advantage of the public service.

atives, or Delegates. The only documents of that character now being 
distributed are. the compilation entitled "^lessages and Papers of the 
Presidents, 1787 to 1897,"' by Richardson, and the Official Register, or 
''Blue Book." 

FREE TO LIBRARIES 

He is directed to distribute current publications to three classes of 
libraries, to be designated to him by Senators, Representatives, and 
Delegates in Congress, as follows : 

To class 1. — Designated depositories; — one to be named by each Sen- 
ator, Representative, or Delegate iu Congress. Libraries of this class 
receive one copy of each of the departmental publications and of the 
numbered Congressional documents. These include everything sent to 
the other two classes. 

To class 2. — Geological libraries; — two to be named by each Senator, 
Representative, and Dele>i;ate in Congress under the provisions of sec. 
79 of the printinj;- law, 28 Stat, at Large, 601. These libraries receive the 
monographs and bulletins of the Geological Survey.

nated by Seuators, Representatives, and Deletjates in Congress to receive 
fractional remainders of Connressional <|notas, under the provisions of 
sec. 68 of the printing law, above referred to. Such lil)rarie8 do not 
receive complete sets of jiublic documents, because "remainders" vary 
from a dozen to four hundred copies, never equaling the number of this 
class of depositories. 

SALES 

The Superintendent of Documents is authorized to sell at cost any 
public document iu his charge the distriltution of which is not other-

sheep-bound reserve 

Note.— These volumes, which have heen previoitsl.N puhlished in nnbouiid form 
or in one or more cloth editions, are now for the tirst time ready for di.stiiliiition in 
sheep bindius- The number in black-faced type appended to tlie description of 
each volume is the serial number in the set of Congressioual documents, as adopted 
in the Checklist of Public Documents issued by this office.

KoTE. — When the Dociiment Checlilist was compiled, in 1895, but 8 volumes of Cen- 
sus reports had been issued in the sheep set, and the compilers were not iulormed as to 
the form in which the remaining volumes were to bo issued. So far as could be judged 
from the v<dumes then issued, each separate hook was to be made a distinct yart oi 
volume 50, Houi^e miscellaneous documents, 52d Congress, 1st session. The only Cen- 
sus volume which at that time had beeu issued in parts in the sheej) set was the Com- 
pendium, and in that case part 1 of the Compendium was publislied as i>art 3 of volume 
50 and part 2 of the Compendium as part 4 of volume 50. Assuming that other i)arted 
volumes would be treated on the same plan, 30 serial numbers [3008-3037 1 were assigned 
for the Census set. When tlie remaining volumes appeared, it was i'ouud, however, 
that the plan of ])ublication had beeu changed. Part 3 of the Compendium was issued 
as part 4 of volume 50, the same as part 2, Compendium, had been. 15oth parts of 
Wealth, Debt, and Taxation were back titled as part 2 of volume 50; Insurance. 2 jiarts, 
both vrere i)art 5, volume 50; Population, 2 i)arts, both part 8; Transportation, 2 parts, 
both part 11 ; Manufactures, 3 parts, all part 12; Crime, Pauperism, and Benevolence, 
2 parts, both jiart 14; Vital and Social Statistics, 4 parts, all part 18. This notation is 
somewhat ambiguous and misleading. As ])artl of i)art5 is devoted to Life insurance, 
the user would be likely to assume that the fcdlowing parts would treat of the same 
sub.ject, and the reader who lonsulted part 2 of, part 5, the theme of which is Fire insur- 
ance, would almost necessarily assume that part 1 must relate to the same topic. So 
with part 11, of which one »d" tlie jiarts or volumes into which it is divided treats of 
Land transportation and the other of Water transportation. Evidently convenience in 
the use of the set would have been increased by giving each volume of each ji.irt of 
volunui 50 a distimt number. But as this was not done, and as it was not known how 
many parts there would be, the iilan that had been begun was followed oul, and but 
one serial number was assigned to each part. Now it is found that the completed 
Census takes up but 18 [3008-3025] of the numbers that had been assigned to it. le;iving 
in the Checklist an uglv gap of 12 numbers [3026-3037], which cannot be tilled up 
because the numbers ifollowiiig, up to 3588, have been assigned and cannot now*be 
changed. It therefoie seems advisable, if not necessary, to recast the serial numbers 
for the 11th Census set, and thus take up the 12 numbers now unused. 

The serial numbers, beginning with 3008, shouhl I herefore be changed as below, fol- 
lowing the notation of the back titles as found on tlie Congressional edition of the 
Census volumes and reproduced herewith (see Checklist, !>. 95) :

This will leave numoer 3037 open for the Statistical Atlas, which is theonly publica- 
t.in of the 11th Census remaining unissued. The Commissioner of Labor, in chargii 
of the Census, in his final report, dated October 5, 18!>7, says that " the Final Keports of 
the 11th Census consist of 25 volumes.' These 25, however, make 26 in the sheep set, 
becau.se Occupations, whicli in tlie cloth is included in Population, i)art 2, is separately 
bound in the sheep. The Abstract of the 11th Censiis is not one of the parts of volume 
50, House miscellaneous documents, 52d Congress, 1st session, but is issued in the Con- 
gressional set as House miscellaneous document 185, 53d Congress. 2d session, and 
bound in volume 1 of the House miscellaneous doc(uiients of that sessiou. The serial 
number of the volume is 3229. This is tlie ist edition of the Abstract, printed in 1894. 
The 2d edition, printed in 1896, has not beeu issued as a Congressional document.
