Appropriation.

2,000.00

STATIONERY, FURNITURE, ETC.

Mr. Johnson. The next is for stationery, furniture, newspapers, plans, drawings, etc., $40,000.

Mr. Curtis. That is without increase; it is the same appropriation. Mr. Johnson. Don't you think you could get along on less?

Mr. CURTIS. No, sir; we have to hold up a lot of things. We have asked for a little additional money for filing equipment.

STEEL FIREPROOF FILE CASES.

Mr. JOHNSON. The next item is toward installing steel fireproof file cases, etc., $5,000, the current appropriation being $2,500.

Mr. CURTIS. Yes, sir; that is an increase. Mr. Johnson. How long would it take you to complete that work of providing steel equipment?

Mr. CURTIS. We are substituting steel filing cases for wood, and it is remarkable how much additional space we can gain. Besides, they

are better in the way of fire protection and are more satisfactory in every way.

Mr. Johnson. We gave you $2,500 this year, and you are asking In OW for $5,000. How long will it be before you get the full equipment?

Mr. CURTIs. After we get the first equipment we will probably be able to take care of it in the usual way out of the $40,000 appropriation. I think if we get the $2,500 this year and about $7,500 more, that will furnish the base equipment. In Steam Engineering they have their base equipment, and the Bureau of Ordnance have their base equipment. The Bureau of Navigation has a part of its base equipment and the Secretary has a part. We have in the department requests for $1,000 from Naval Intelligence and $1,000 from Supplies and Accounts. That will use up almost the entire amount you gave us for the fiscal year 1913.

RENT OF MILLS BUILDING.

Mr. JoHNSON. On page 198 you ask for $24,500 for the rent of the Mills Building. That building is leased for a number of years, is it not?

Mr. CURTIs. Yes, sir; it has been under contract for about 10 years.

MOVING HYDROGRAPHIC OFFICE.
[See p. 134.]

Mr. Johnson. We have been asked to appropriate something like $30,000 in this bill for the purpose of housing the Hydrographic Office out at the Naval Observatory.

Mr. CURTIs. Yes, sir.

Mr. JoHNSON. If that were done and you were given the space in the Mills Building now occupied by the Hydrographic Office, what would you do with it ! Do you need it?

Mr. CURTIs. Yes, sir; we need it. I wish you could come or would send some one up there to see how overcrowded those rooms are. We have the sanitary report of the medical officers, which shows that the rooms are badly overcrowded. We have not the amount of air space that the medical officers think each individual ought to have.

Mr. BURLESON. That is a very bad condition.

Mr. CURTIs. Yes, sir; and it should be corrected. If the Hydrographic Office goes out it will give us three floors there; but we will have to use about all of that to give proper floor space to our present force.

CHIEF CLERK, BUREAU OF YARDS AND DOCKS.

Mr. Johnson. Is there anything else you want to say? Mr. CURIIs. Just one thing about the Bureau of Yards and Docks. The Admiral is out of the city. When he is absent his chief clerk has to act in his place as the acting chief of the bureau. They have asked for but one increase, and that is in the salary of the chief clerk from $2,000 to $2,500. Mr. Johnson. Every bureau in the Navy Department has asked for that increase, I believe, of $500 for the chief clerks. Mr. CURTIs. Yes, sir; and it ought to be given them. You can always fill that position, whether you pay well for it or not. There

are plenty of clerks who will accept a place of this character whether the salary is sufficient or not. Every chief clerk has to be more or less of a law clerk. He has to protect the naval officer who is in charge of the bureau in determining innumerable law questions that are constantly arising. In addition to that naval officers must be constantly changing. They must change in every three or four years, and every new man coming to a bureau must of necessity learn many things about the work of that bureau.

Mr. Johnson. And they need a good chief clerk to tell them.

Mr. BURLESON. You have made many suggestions as to additions and increases in the appropriations in this bill. Now, can you make any suggestion as to where any reductions can be made?

Mr. CURTIS. That is a rather embarrassing question. I do not believe I can.

Mr. BURLESON. How many naval officers are there in the Navy Department?

Mr. CURTIS. I have not that information.
Mr. BURLESON. You can get it, can you not?
Mr. CURTIS. Yes, sir.

Mr. BURLESON. I wish you would get up a statement containing the names, rank, etc., of the naval officers on duty at the department and a statement showing the bureaus they are attached to.

Mr. CURTIS. I will do so. (See p. —.)

OFFICE OF NAVAL RECORDS OF THE REBELLION.

STATEMENT OF MR. CHARLES W. STEWART, SUPERINTENDENT.

Mr. Johnson. I notice you have been receiving $21,000 for continuing the publication of an edition of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Navies in the War of the Rebellion for a number of years, but for the next fiscal year you are only asking for $10 500; why that decrease?

Mr. STEWART. That is for one volume. The appropriation for the records for this year will be available if the work is begun in this year until the end of the next year, and it is estimated that this $10,500 asked for will finish the work with this one volume.

Mr. JOHNSON. This appropriation will complete that work?
Mr. STEWART. Yes, sir.

Mr. BURLESON. What is going to become of your bureau' when that work is completed ?

Mr. STEWART. I hope that the Congress will authorize a division of records, to take charge of the noncurrent records and group them into one division. The Secretary has been considering it, and that is looking forward to the grouping and arranging of those records and gathering them into the Hall of Records eventually. I do not know what will become of it, sir.

Mr. BURLESON. I suppose the resourceful gentlemen connected with it are endeavoring to find some use for that bureau.

Mr. STEWART. Well, it has been, and is, very useful.

Mr. Johnson. You are under the classified service, and when this work is completed your force will go to work somewhere else for the Government, whether in this bureau or somewhere else?

Mr. STEWART. Yes, sir.
