"WASHINGTON , August 1. The fol
lowing is a full text of the president's
message vetoing the river and liarbor
bill :
To the House of Ilcprracntatirai.
Having watched -with much internal
the progress of the house bill , No.
02-15 , entitled , "An act rmking appro
priation for the Construction , repair
and preservation of certain works on
rivera and harbors , and for other pur
poses , " and having since it waa re
ceived carefully examined it , after
mature consideration , I am constrained
to return it herewith to the liouao of
representatives , in\vhicli it originated ,
\\\'Hiout my signature , and with my
objcctionn to its passage.
Many appropriations in the bill are
clearly for the general welfare , and
most beneficial in their character.
Two of the objects for which provision
ia made were by mo considered so im
portant that I felt It my duty to direct
to them the attention of congress. In
my annual message in December last ,
I urged the vital importance of legis
lation for Iho reclamation of marshon ,
and for the establishment of harbor
linoa nlong the Potomac front. In
April lost , by npoeial message , 1
recommended nn appropriation for
improvement of the Mississippi river.
It is not necoesary that I aay that
when my signature would make the
bill appropriating for those and ether
valuable nationM objootu a lait is
with1 great rolutyanM tyi'l&QlK " under
"TSt fin STfojfcctioii to tho"bill is
that it contains appropriations for a
purpose , not for common defense or
general wolfure , and which do not
promote commorca among the states.
Those provisions , on the contrary , are
entirely for the benefit of paiticular
localities in which it is proposed to
make improvements , I regard BticU
appropriations as beyond the power
given by the constitution to congrosa
and the president. I feel moio bound
to withhold my signature from thu
bill because of the peculiar evils which
manifestly result from this infraction
of the constitution. Appropriations
of this nature to bo devoted purely to
local objecto tend to increase in num
ber and amount , as citizen * ot one
state find that money , to rauo which
they , in common with the whole coun
try , are taxed , to bo expended for lo
cal improvements in another state ,
demand similar bonolitB for
improvements , and it ia not unnatu
ral that they should Book to indem
nify thomsolvoH for ouch out of the
public funds by securing appropriu-
tioiiH for similar improvommita in
their own neighborhood. Train , tu
the bill becomes nioro objectionable ,
it secures more support Thin result
in invariable and nocetaiirily J | lowi >
the neglect to obaervo the constitu
tional limitations imposed upo.i thu
law-making power. Appropriation ! )
for river and harbor improvement ! ) ,
under the inlluuiiccs to which I have
alhult'd , increased year by year , out
of all proprotion to the progress of
the country , u'loat as that haa bnun.

while by the present. : itt iln ro ia ap

ing every disputation to IHU.VO to thu
legislature * the ri'spoiibibility of do-
tormiuini ! what umuunt thould bo' ap
propriated for the purpose of thu bill ,
HO long as the appropriations are con
fined t ; objects indioitud by the grant
of power , 1 cannot recipe ho conolii
sion that ai a part of the law making
power of the government the duty du-
volvea upon mu to withhold my sig
nature from the bill containing appro
priations which , in my opinion , greatly
exceed in amount the ncpdn of the
country for tha present fiscal y ar.
It being tlie usage to provide
money for thoao purposea by
annual appropriation bills , the presi
dent la in effect directed
to ox/iand / so largo an amount of
money within no brief a period that
the expenditure cannot bo done econ
omically and udvanta ooualy , Ex
travagant expenditure of public monuy
ia an evil not to bo moaaured by the
valuu of that money to Iho people ,
who are taxed for it. They sustain
greater injury in the demoralizing of-
ell'ect produced upon thoao who are
entrusted with olticial duty through
all the ramifications of the govern
ment. These objections could bo re
moved and ovury constitutional pur
pose readily obtained , should congresa
enact that ouo half only of the ajji-ro-
amount provided for in the bill
bo appr priatod for expenditure dur
ing the fiscal year and that the sum so
appropriated bo expended only for
such objects nntnol in the bill
as the secretary of war ,
under the direction of the president
nhall determine ; provided that in no
case shall the
uxpendlturo for any one
purpose exceed the num. now desig
nated by the bill for that purpose. I
fool authorized to make this sugges
tion bccuiso of the duties imposed
upon the president by thocoiiBtitution
to recommend to the consideration of
congress such measures aa ho shall
judge nccoasary nnd expedient , and
because it is my desire that public
works which are in progress shall
sutler no injury. Congrosi will also
convene niain in four months , when
this whole subject will bo open for
their consideration.

000 two per cent bonds , * to bo ex

tion of Senator Albrich , adopted
unanimounly. In the discussion the

Key was also on the stand.
In answer to inquiries from Ingor-
aoll , thu court said the real ( juestion
o' trial > vaa whether Brady had re
ceived money from the contractors for
ordering expedition and the question
of policy did not out or into it. The
records of expedition orders were
brought into court , comprining six
largo bundles , but they were not put
in evidence ,
Merrick said ho should have to re
quest Judge Key to rennin in this
city for a few days so ho might examine -
amino him when records were
put in. No cross-examination was
army , waa the next witness. IIo
recognized his endoraonrjnt on a
petition for increase mid expedition
upon route 38,113. lie was asked if
ho had not urged increase generally
upon the department , saying it
would do moro than anything ulen to
suttlo the pvorlaating Indian question ,
but objection wan made by the pros
ecution and unstained by the court.
( Jon. Sherman was thou naked to
detail the facto which influenced him
in making the recommendations for
increase. lie oaid personally ho
know little of the circumstances but
in hit official capacity ho hoard much
of them. The Indian agent at White
river agency had boon murdered , his
family carried off , and a fight had
( . ikon place between Major Thornbiirg
and the Indiaim. The entire country
between llawlins and While river
agency was overrun by hoatilea and it
wai regarded as u measure of nation
al importance to keep open every
possible communication with the rear.
OoiiHcquontly thu eatablishmont of a
daily mail aervice in that section had
boon recommended , lie was asked
what was the effect of frequent mails
upon the maintenance _ of peaceful rp-
luiomi with the Indiana. IIo aaid
nothing bettor onablea an officer to
kuup peace than frequent communica
tion with the different sections of Iho
Indian country. At loaat one-fourth
of the appropriations made for the
support of the army was expended for
courier service and to guard linoa of
communication. The postollieo de
partment was nlao pressed to establish
and incruuBO their iiurvice. Quick
communication of intolli < { once _ was
thus docurod , mid commanding officers
were enabled to anticipate the move
ments of hoalilo Indian ? , lie had
recommended tri-weokly uorvico on
thu Bismarck and Kort Keogh route in
tlio winter of 1878 , Bismarck wan then
tlio tormiinis ot the Northern Pacific
railway , and the route waa intended
to , and did , anticipate the construc
tion of the railway. A atago line ,
with post houses , constituted an ef
fectual picket line , which was of
great Borvico to the military foroea ,
They would have been forced to
ostablbh a picket line at great cost if
the ground had not boon covered by
ntago lines. Speaking of Arizona
routes , CiLiioral tihorman aaid that in
that state there were 4,1)00 , Apaoho
Indiana of a peculiar character. They
entertain an everlasting hatred
toward the Spanish race and
were kept corralled by the military
to prevent thorn making doprodatiuna
upon the aottlora in that country.
Somotirnea they broke away from
their corral after the fashion of ani
mals. In a recent case 100 Apachea
had broken out and killed forty sot-
tlora , and had escaped into Old
Mexico , v/horo they had boon wiped
out by Mexican troops. Frequent
maila gave warning of such outbreaks -
breaks and gayo the aettlora an oppjr-
tunity to make a defence.
Ou croaa-examination , Gun. Shor >
man eaid ho would prefer elow daily
mails to loss frequent though faster
service. This concluded the exam
ination of Oon. Sherman ,
After rccosa , .7. L. French , ox chict
clerk ot the second assistant posr.mas-
tor general , was recalled. After detailing -
tailing the business routine of the
contract ofiico , witness was asked who
was acting second assistant postmas
ter general December SJ8 , 1880 , the
date of the Brady-Walsh interview.
Objection was made to the question
but the court allowed it , and French
said upon that day ho wna acting as
sistant postmaster general. During
most of the latter part of December
ho had acted as second assistant , oc
cupying the desk of that officer. Gen
eral Brady did not act as postmaster
Ronoral in December , that yoar. Oon
cral Brady had n white boy named
Ooorgo Adams as his page and witnons
believed ho WRS not In the ofiico
in December , 1880. It was common
practice for contractors to have agent ,
attend to their business before thu de
partment , nnd their communications
were recognized as under authority of
the principals ,
Witness was asked to identify a
number of orders for expeditions in
routes named in the indictment as
having been made for himself. Ob
jcction wi\8 made , however. Ingor-
neil aaid witness having made orders
honestly and without regard to pay , it
would go to nhow , BO far aa the routes
upon which these orders were baser

conspiracy in their oxpodition. The
court sustained the objection. Ad
