By 1877, February 16, ch. 58 (1 Supp. R. S., 129), the price for composition is limited to 50 cents per 1,000 ems and 40 cents per hour for time work to printers and bookbinders. This limit of wages per hour for time work remained in force until by 1899, March 3, ch. 424 (31 Stat. L., 1119), the Public Printer was, for the coming fiscal year, authorized in his discretion to pay printers and bookbinders at the rate of 50 cents per hour. That act, being merely temporary, was not included in the Supplement to the Revised Statutes. The paragraph in the text, by the use of the word "hereafter,” makes the provision permanent. See note (1) to 1891, March 3, ch. 550, as to laws relating to employees in the Government Printing Office. Some additional provisions are contained in 1895, January 12, ch. 23, $$ 39, 43-50 (2 Şupp. R. S., 347, 348), and 1896, June 11, ch. 420, par. 10 (2 Supp. R. S., 526).
