'85. The Sunday Gazette (democratic), of Washington,
D..C, for February 22, has the following comment in regard
to the appointment of Professor Warner: "Said Senator
Dawes: 'It is fortunate that President Harrison has selected
a good man for superintendent of charities for the District of
Columbia. It is a very unpoitant and responsible position
and one which may be used to develop a more systematic
administration of the district charities than has been poss
ible lieietoforc. In my service in congress, and especially
since my service on the appropriation committee having
charge of the district bill, it has always been a difficult thing
toasccitain just what amounts should be appropriated for
charities. There arc so many excellent institutions and it is
difficult to divide between them so as to give each just the
exact amount each should have out of the limited revenues of
the district. 1 expect by the time the estimates for the next
fiscal year arc made out we shall have some great improve
ments from the experience the superintendent of charities
will have had by that time.' "
