PREFACE. 



The number of separate publications issued from the Cvovernment 
Printing Office during the year 18869 was 8,562, including the Re- 
ports made to Congress by its Committees and by the Executive 
Departments, and excluding Bills and Resolutions. 

The number of copies of all publications printed during the fiscal 
year i885-'86, was 34,486,926,* at a cost, including engraving and 
binding, of 11,038,449, or an average of three cents per copy. 

This remarkable statement would not seem to warrant the belief 
that extravagant methods prevail in the administration of the Gov- 
ernment Printing Office. That a considerable amount of the ma- 
terial printed is ultimately worthless is quite true, but it is not always 
possible to determine in advance the probable demand for an 
official document. The cost of the wasted material is largely offset 
by the increased cost that would be incurred in reprinting such 
documents as in special exigencies might be required. The supply 
of important publications seldom equals the demand. Of course 
the '^ demand" exists to a larger extent under the system of free 
distribution than it would if it were known that the supply was lim- 
ited to the absolute requirements of legislation. If beyond this 
requirement, and a sufficient number to cover a generous free distri- 
bution to public libraries, a small edition of every publication were 
printed for the use of the public, to be supplied at cost price, and 
publication officially announcedy it is not at all likely that one-quarter 
of the "extra** copies now ordered printed would ever be needed. 
What publishing house would think of printing an edition of 20,- 
ooof copies of a scientific or, with rare exceptions, even an histor- 
ical work? And why should the Government?

120,400 copies of the Fifth Annual Be];>ort on the U. 8. Geological Survey were 
printed.

JANUABY, FEBRUARY, MARCH, 1886. 



The fifth annual report of the Director of the United States 
Geological Survey, with accompanying papers, has been issued. 
Also, the ninth volume of monographs. In this connection atten- 
tion is called to a large mass of testimony before the joint commis- 
sion appointed by Congress to consider the present organization of 
the Signal Service, Geological Survey, Coast and Geodetic Survey, 
and the Hydrograpic office of the Navy Department. A portion of 
the Commission recommends material abridgment in the scope of 
the work of the Geological Survey; but it is not yet apparent 
whether Congress will approve the recommendation. The '' testi- 
mony" however, is highly interesting and instructive. 

In the summer of 1884, the President appointed a scientific com- 
mission to conduct a national conference of electricians in con- 
nection with the International Electrical Exhibition under the 
auspices of the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. The Com- 
mission has submitted as their report the Proceedings of the 
National Conference of Electricians, held September 8-13, 1884. 

The report of Lieut. Frederick Schwatka, of his military recon- 
noissance from Chilkoot Inlet to Fort Selkirk, Alaska, in the summer 
of 1883, has been printed (121pp., maps and other illustrations). 
Following the narrative is an account of the native Indian tribes. 
The maps, twenty in number, are important additions to the carto- 
graphy of that region, being drawn after actual surveys made by 
the party. 

"Art and Industry" is the title of a volume (iioo pp.) by Isaac 
Edwards Clarke, who, at the request of the Commissioner of Edu- 
cation, has elaborated a work on instruction in drawing applied to 
the industrial and fine arts, as given in the colleges and public 
schools of the United States. Mr. Clarke has been engaged in this 
investigation since the Centennial Exhibition of 1876; but so rapid

have been the changes in public opinion upon all matters relating 
to art, as well as the development of new artistic industries, he 
found it next to impossible to keep step with the art progress of the 
country ! Three additional Parts, or volumes will follow. 

Notwithstanding the slow progress made in passing through Con- 
gress the " Blair Educational Bill,*' there comes from Mr. Sheldon 
Jackson, "General Agent of Education in Alaska,'* a report on 
the education of the nation's wards in that distant territory. The 
sum of 1125,000 provided in the organic act, enabled the agent to 
establish nine schools at distances from 100 to 1000 miles apart. A 
"brief survey of the country," and a narrative of two "explora- 
tions" make up fully one-half of this volume, which is also well il- 
lustrated. 

In view of the proposed enlargement of the naval establishment 
of the United States, the Annual Report of the Secretary of the 
Navy and the report of the select committee on Ordnance and 
War-ships possess unusual interest. They include "Modem Armor 
for National defense," by Lieut. Jaques, and " Torpedo warfare," 
by the same writer and Lieut. Very. Also, Senator Hawley's ac- 
count of a visit to the ordnance establishments of England ; the 
report of the Naval Advisory Board on mild steel ; and the report 
of the Chief of Ordnance U. S. N. 

The Annual Report of the Chief of Engineers U. S. A. (4 vols.) 
embraces the reports of the Engineer Corps on surveys and public 
works in various parts of the country. 

Under the supervision of Mr. Clarence King, there has been 
brought together (U. S. Census, 1880, vol. xiv) all the federal, 
state and territorial mining laws, and regulations thereunder ; and 
(for the first time), the local district rules and regulations enacted 
by the various mining organizations. The latter are of extreme 
value, "as covering the inception of a very large number of titles 
to important properties." The errors and grammatical construc- 
tion of the crude original records have been closely followed. 

The Department of Agriculture adds several publications to the 
scientific literature of the Government, notably an illustrated re- 
port on insects affecting the orange and other plants of the citrus 
family, by H. G. Hubbard, from investigations carried on in Flor- 
ida since 1881. 

The first annual report of Mr. Carroll D. Wright will interest 
those who have looked for good results from the proper organiza- 
tion of a Bureau of Labor. 



PUBLICATIONS CATiJU>OUS. 8 

Congress having failed to order the printing of the Statistical 
Abstract for 1884 prepared by the Bureau of Statistics of the Treas- 
ury Department, the material for that number has been consolidated 
with that for 1885, ^^^ published in one volume as the seventh and 
eighth nunibers. 

On the subjects of Finance and the Tariflf the Treasury Depart- 
ment Documents afford an unusual amount of valuable information. 



The question is frequently asked. How are Government publica- 
tions to be obtained ? 

The books or pamphlets published by any Department, and not 

as Congressional Documents, are presumed to be for the use of 

such Department. The *' use " may be, either general distribution, 

or distribution only to officers of the Government working under 

such Department. In the former case, those who apply are usually 

accommodated ; in the latter, a request is frequently unheeded ; but 

in both cases public institutions are favored rather than individuals. 

All Congressional Documents are absolutely free, and may be 

obtained through any member of Congress, or the Secretary of the 

Senate, or the Clerk of the House of Representatives. The number 

printed is not always the same. The regular edition consists of 

1950 copies, but extra copies of documents of supposed interest are 

sometimes ordered, in numbers varying all the way from 500 copies 

to 300,000. These are apportioned among the members of the two 

Houses of Congress, and usually a liberal supply in addition is 

voted to the Department or Office making the report. In a very 

small number of instances an edition is ordered printed for sale, 

but the same works are found in the quotas of the members. 

All those who prefer not to ask favors, as well as those who have 
exhausted their credit by calls too frequent, and have wearied both 
Congressmen and the Departments, can be supplied through any 
reputable bookseller, or the editor of this journal will sfiord such 
aid as he is able. 



This journal, issued monthly, contains a catalogue of a// the 
latest publications of the U. S. Government. It includes the books 
and pamphlets printed by the Departments and Bureaus of Depart- 
ments ; of Commissions and Organizations which publish special 
works not included in the reports transmitted to Congress, all the 



4 UNITED STATES OOVEBNMBNT 

documents issued during the sessions of Congress, all public and 
private Acts, Treaties, Maps and Charts. 

The titles are arranged alphabetically in each number, and under 
authors' names as far as practicable. At the same time the De- 
partments, Bureaus and Commissions are credited with the works 
issued under their supervision. Where the subjects treated are of 
sufficient public interest, titles are repeated under the topics re- 
ferred to. 

The price of subscription in the United States is ;f2.oo per 
iuinum; outside of the United States ^2.50, including postage.

APRIL, MAY, JUNE. 1886. 



There was tna^smitted to Congress in December, 1883, by the 
Chief of Engineers, u. s. a. a detailed report of the Commissioner 
(Capt. G. M. Wheeler) to the third International Geographical 
Exhibition and Congress at Venice in 188 1. In 1885, this report 
with the accompanying illustrations was ordered printed in quarto 
form, and the volume (586pp.) has recently appeared. It contains 
a description and discussion of geographical exhibits from twenty- 
two countries ; a summary of the scope and proeress of the discussion 
touching the establishment of a common initial meridian and uni- 
form standard time; also, information concerning the origin, organ- 
ization, functions, history and progress of the topographic, hydro- 
graphic and geologic surveys of several governments, with lists and 
samples of published maps. This information relating to the works 
of more than thirty foreign countries was drawn largely from trans- 
lations of official publications and from original memoirs prepared 
by several chiefe of surveys. It exhibits the results of the organised 
and effective surveys of the various governments of the world, and 
as far as practicable the cost. 

The Commission appointed to consider means for securing greater 
efficiency in the administration of the Geologic Survey, the Coast 
and Geodetic Survey, the Hydrographic Office, and Signal Service, 
has made reports based in a measure upon the .testimony offered. 
(Sen. Mis. Doc. 82, Sen. Rep. 1285, and House Rep. 2740). The 
investigation covered a very wide range, but failed to impress Con- 
gress with a necessity for radical changes, as very slight modifica- 
tions of the present systen^ were sanctioned by that body. 

"ction with the report on Ordnance and War Ships made 

:t committee in February (Sen. Rep. 90), the report of 

jf Fortifications upon armor, torpedoes, torpedo-boats, 

r, and the capacity of this country to furnish arms and 



86 UNTTBD STATES GOVEBNMENT 

> 

guns, affords a vast fund of information on the present status of the 
defences of nations. In this connection a report on European dock- 
yards by Philip Hichbom will be found of high interest. All these 
publications are profusely illustrated. 

The Office of Naval Intelligence has issued number five of the 
General Information series. It is largely devoted to the subject of 
war ships, torpedo-boats and armor, with a chapter translated from 
French and German naval publications on the capture of the Pes- 
cadores Islands during the Franco- Chinese war in 1885. 

The literature of the Nicaragua Canal has received an accession 
by a report on the work performed and the results accomplished by 
a surveying party under Civil Engineer A. G. Monacal, u. s. n., 
sent to Nicaragua in 1884 for the purpose of rectifying the location 
for an inter-oceanic canal previously made. It supplements the re- 
port made by Capt. E. P. Lull in 1872-73. 

Two additional numbers (19 and 20) of Naval Professional 
Papers have appeared. The Bureau of Navigation has also issued 
supplements to its several hydrographic publications, covering the 
latest corrections and additional data. 

Volumes 16 and 20 of the Census Reports of 1880 contain re- 
spectively, statistics of power and machinery employed in manufac- 
tures, and statistics of wages in manufacturing industries ; also a 
chapter on trade societies, and a meagre account of " strikes." 

The latest reports on scientific subjects include a Geological His- . 
tory of Lake Lahonton, Nevada, being the eleventh monograph of 
the Geological Survey, and Bulletin number 27 of the same Survey; 
Part eleven of the report of the Fish Commissioner for 1883 (long 
delayed) ; the fourth report of the Entomological Commission ; a 
new (6th) edition of Prof. Riley's Manual on Silk Culture ; the re- 
port of the National Museum for 1884; and eighteen Miscellaneous 
Publications of the Smithsonian Institution. Among the latter the 
writings of Thoroddsen and C. J. Rockwood, Jr., on earthquakes, 
are of special interest at this time. 

The report of Mr. Henry White, of the U. S. Legation at Lon- 
don, on unclaimed estates in England, should effectually dispel the 
delusions of those foolish dupes in the United States who are 
throwing away money in pursuit of imaginary fortunes in Great 
Britain. 

A most useful reference volume has been prepared by the Treas- 
ury Department, and recently published as Senate Executive Docu- 



PUBLICATIONS CATALOGUI. 87 

ment No. 196, 47th Congress, ist session. It is a sUtement of ex* 
penditures for public buildings, rivers and harbots, forts, arsenalsi 
annories and .other public works, since March 4, 1789. The ar- 
rangement of the work is such as to show the entire amount 
expended on every river and harbor, fort, public building, etc., 
through a series of years, with a recapitulation by States, and a 
general summary. 

Other works of general interest are Records of the War, volumes 
sixteen (two parts) and seventeen ; the second volume of the ''Blue 
Book," 1885 ; the fourth volume of the Decisions of the Commis- 
sioner of the General Land Office ; and a papef on physical training 
in colleges, by £. M. Hartwell. 

During the closing hours of the last session of Congress a num- 
ber of resolutions for extra copies of numerous publications passed 
the lower House, but the Senate failed to act upon them. 



This journal contains a catalogue of all the latest publications of 
the United States Government. It includes the books and pamph- 
lets printed by order of the Departments and Bureaus of Depart- 
ments ; of Commissions and Organizations which publish special 
works not included in the reports transmitted to Congress; all the 
documents issued by Congress, that is to say, the Executive Docu- 
ments, Reports of Committees, Miscellaneous Documents, and Jour- 
nals, and in addition, the ^titles of all public and private Acts, 
Treaties, Maps and Charts. 

The arrangement of the titles is alphabetical, under the names of 
authors as regards special treatises, and under topics as regards 
congressional documents. At the same time the Departments, Bu- 
reaus and Commissions are credited with the works issued under 
their supervision. 

The price of subscription in the United States is |2.oo per an- 
num ; outside of the United States ^2.50, including postage.
