Annual Report of the Attorney General of the United States, 1895 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Annual Report of the Attorney General of the United States, 1895I believe the new methods have proved most beneficial. The Department has been enabled to maintain a more careful watchfulness over expenditures in many directions than ever before, and to gain more accurate knowledge as to the necessity for disbursements from the various appropriations under its supervision. Under the system now inaugurated, accounts receive careful and thorough examination before they are transmitted to the Treasury, opportunity has been given for instruction of those presenting them relative to their rendition, and many irregularities have been corrected.The act requires that quarterly accounts shall be sent to the Department within twenty days after the period to which they relate, and shall be transmitted to the Treasury within sixty days of their actual receipt by the Department. In case of delay on the part of the official in sending forward his account the requirement may be waived by the Secretary of the Treasury when it is made to appear that there is a manifest physical difficulty in complying with the same. Should the Department fail to examine and transmit the accounts to the Treasury within the sixty days allowed, an order of the President is necessary to authorize an advance of money on requisitions therefor.It has been found that these requirements sometimes work hardship and result in considerable annoyance. It often happens that marshals are unable to forward their quarterly accounts within the prescribed limit of twenty days for the reason, among others, that it is impossible for them to secure returns from all of their deputies, who may be scattered over an entire district. The time for filing such accounts should be extended to forty days. This, it is believed, would cover the cases mentioned and make the new system work smoothly.It has also been found impracticable to transmit all accounts to the Treasury within the sixty days prescribed by said act. This applies especially to the accounts under the appropriation for fees and expenses of marshals. It is often necessary to have 3 such accounts corrected and charges therein explained before the Department can properly examine them, and to effect this correspondence is required between the Department and the marshal, and between the marshal and his deputies scattered over the district, which can not be completed so as to pass upon the accounts within sixty days. The limit should be increased to ninety days, if not wholly removed. Should it be deemed inexpedient to remove it, however, the act should at least be amended so as clearly to provide that in case the accounts of marshals, for unavoidable causes, are not transmitted by this Department to the Treasury within the prescribed limit, their requisitions for funds may be honored as soon as the accounts are actually received at the Treasury. Under the present law, if an account is delayed beyond the sixty days it results as a bar to the advancement of funds on pending requisitions, and the situation is not relieved by the subsequent transmission of the account, but an order from the President is required.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
