Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows :

1 Sect. 2. 2 sage.

Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

IN SENATE, March 13, 1878.

The Committee on the Treasury, to whom was committed the Bill to provide for the collection and publication of statistics, having considered the same, have the honor to submit the following

REPORT. The Bill contemplates the establishment of a new department, or bureau, which, in the opinion of the Committee, would involve a permanent annual expense of several thousand dollars, which it is very desirable to avoid if possible ; but to say the Bill ought, or ought not, to pass, would imply a judgment of the merits and expediency of the measure, which hardly comes within the province of a merely financial Committee. The Committee, therefore, report the Bill back to the Senate without recommendation, and respectfully ask to be discharged from the further consideration of the subject.

For the Committee,

CHAS. ADAMS, JR.
