Washington, Dec o. Acting undor
an opinion rendered last summer by
Attorney General Olney, Secretary of
Agrlculturo Morton has practically
done away with the time-honored sys
tom of seed gratuities to tho public
through members of Congress. Ho
rejected all bids mado for furnishing
seeds to tho public and in October last
practically abolished tho seed division
of tho department. Sinco them mem
bers of both houses lmvo been plan
ning to tako aotlon to compel him to
carry out tho law according to tholr
interpretation of it, which was mado
plain In the course of a long debato by
the last House.
In anticipation of a Congressional
request for an explanation which was
initiated by Mr. Baker of New Hamp
shire to-day tho Secretary of Agricul
ture had printed a circular explaining
his course which is being distributed
to members. Tho circular quotes tho
Attorney Generals opinion that tho
law contemplates the use of seeds rare
and not common to this country, nnd
also tho Secretary's order closing tho
It is not yet apparent what action,
if any, will bo taken by Congress to
have its intentions In making clio ap
propriation carried out, or whether
any action is taken. Mr. Fielder of
South Dakota is one of tho members
who thinks that tho falluro to dis
tribute seeds has injured his constitu
ents. To-day ho called on Secretary
Morton to discuss the mntter, but did
not receive any assurances which gavo
him hopo that his quota of seeds
would be forthcoming. Ho speaks
very Btrongly of the Secretary's course,
saying that tho intent of tho law was
explicitly expressed in the debato,
which preceded its passage, and that
the failure of tho executive branch of
the government to carry it out is
Mr. Plckler and the other members
holding the samo views are somewhat
at a loss, however, to provide any
method of coercion by which thoy can
compel tho department to furnish
seeds. They say that tho next appro
priation bill will contain a seed clause
so ironclad that thcro will bo no pos
sible loopholes by which their allot
ments can escapo thorn, but they
trreatly fear that this year's seeds aro
not to bo secured.
Secretary Morton has been very
plain in his statements to members,
lie says ho believes that tho seed dis
tribution is an unconstitutional form
of paternalism, and decs not intend to
bo instrumental in it if lie can help
