Possibly a few expeditions like that to l.ake Champlaln, recently exposed In the house, might be dispensed with In the Interest of econ omy. Perhaps the river and harbor bills, running Into the millions, to mate har bors where the Almighty forbade them and rivers where nature prohibited them, might be dispensed with. , Public buildings might wait a few years, even though It might Injure the chance ot a few men to go back to con gress because they could not secure a public building at an enormous expense where none Is needed. "Many more millions go for Ihe main tenance of navy yaida so absolutely chaste that their waters hav never yet embraced the form of a sea -going battle ship; dry docks that are a constant chal lenge to the ward of God, because they are ao dry that the only possible chance for them to ever be used for docking ships Is confined to the remote prospect that w will ae a repetition of Ihe flood described In the Scriptures.
