T o th e C o n g r e s s o f t h e U n it e d S t a t e s :

I transmit herewith the Budget of the United States for the fiscal year ending June 30,1924, which is summarized

In the Budget for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1923, transmitted to Congress December 5, 1921, the estimated
receipts for the fiscal year 1922 were $3,943,453,663, and the estimated expenditures $3,967,922,366, thus forecasting
an apparent excess of expenditures over receipts of $24,468,703. At the close of business on June 30, 1922, it was
found that the actual receipts for the fiscal year 1922 were $4,109,104,150.94 and the actual expenditures
$3,795,302,499.84, making an excess of receipts over expenditures of $313,801,651.10. That we closed the fiscal
year 1922 with a surplus of $313,801,651.10 instead of an estimated deficit of $24,468,703 was due in no small measure
to the fact that at the beginning of the fiscal year 1922 a system of financial control was established in the executive
branch of the Government under the budget system. Immediately upon the commencement of the fiscal year 1922
Executive pressure for the closest economies was brought to bear upon the business organization of the Government.
For the first time in the history of this country coordination was established in the routine business of the Government
and the departments and establishments thus brought together in a common effort for economy.
While the estimate of receipts and expenditures for the fiscal year 1923 as made at the time of the presentation
of the Budget in December, 1921, indicated that the receipts would be $3,338,182,750 and the expenditures
$3,505,754,727, a revision of the prospective receipts and expenditures made on July 1, 1922, the commencement
of the fiscal year, indicated that the receipts would be $3,073,825,311 and the expenditures $3,771,258,542. That
revised estimate indicated an excess of expenditures over receipts of $697,433,231.
As a result, however, of the operations of the first five months of the current fiscal year, a revised estimate of
receipts has now been made showing a total of $3,429,862,959. The considerable increase over the July estimate
is due to the stimulation in the collection of ordinary receipts aided by an increase in the customs revenues. On the
other hand, due to continued pressure for economies and a revision of the expenditure program based on five months
of actual operation, it is now estimated that the expenditures for the fiscal year 1923 will be $3,703,801,671. These
revised figures indicate an apparent prospective deficit of $273,938,712. I am hopeful, however, that the conditions
on which this estimate is predicated will change for the better in the ensuing months of the fiscal year and that the
close of the year will show a balanced account.
It is well to mention that of the total estimated expenditures of $3,703,801,671 for the fiscal year 1923, approx­
imately two billion dollars will be expended in the payment of pensions, payments to or on behalf of World War
veterans, interest on the public debt, and for the reduction of the public debt required by law to be made from ordinary
receipts.
This estimate of expenditures during the fiscal year 1923 includes the amount of the difference between the cash
receipts from sales of war savings stamps, series of 1918, and their face value, which series becomes due January 1,
1923. This amount of approximately $125,000,000 represents discount accruals covering a period of five years,
and while not an expenditure properly chargeable against the ordinary receipts of 1923 must be met this fiscal year
and therefore has been included in this year’s estimated expenditures.
We now come to the Budget for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1924. It is estimated that the total ordinary re­
ceipts from all sources, excluding the Postal Service, will be $3,361,812,359. This is $747,291,791.94 less than the

actual receipts for 1922 and $68,050,600 less than the estimated receipts for 1923. The items which make up this
estimated total for 1924 are compared with similar items for the two preceding years, as follows:

The estimate of expenditures for the fiscal year 1924 is $3,180,843,234. This is the amount which it is estimated
will be withdrawn from the Treasury during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1924. This estimate of cash withdrawal
is to be distinguished from the estimate of appropriations contained in the Budget, since withdrawals during the
fiscal year will be made from appropriations heretofore made as well as from appropriations recommended in this
Budget. Furthermore, a portion of the money to be appropriated for the fiscal year 1924 will not be withdrawn from
the Treasury until after the close of that fiscal year.
These expenditures may be divided into two general classes, those which partake of the nature of fixed charges
and are not generally subject to administrative control, and those which are subject to administrative control.
Included within the first class are pensions, payments to or on behalf of World War veterans, interest on the
public debt, and the reduction of the public debt required by law to be made from the ordinary receipts of the Govern­
ment. These items, together with certain other, but smaller, items not generally subject to administrative control,
represent about two-thirds of the estimated expenditures, leaving approximately one billion dollars subject to admin­
istrative control.
The foregoing does not include expenditures for the Postal Service and the Post Office Department payable from
postal revenues. Such expenditures for the fiscal year 1922 were $545,666,532.28, a deficiency of $64,346,234.52,
payable from ordinary receipts, being included in the ordinary expenditures for 1922 hereinbefore mentioned. The
estimated expenditures from postal revenues during 1923 arc $559,996,841.69, an estimated deficiency of
$31,502,570.76 being included in the estimated ordinary expenditures for 1923. The estimated expenditures from
postal revenues for 1924 are $584,653,151.50, and it is estimated that through proper readjustments there will be a
surplus of postal revenues over expenditures amounting to $952,439.56 for that year.
That we approach the commencement of the fiscal year 1924 with an estimated surplus for that year of $180,969,125
is certainly most encouraging. While I am hopeful that there will be no deficit in the current fiscal year, 1923, if such
a deficit does occur, this surplus for 1924 will give a margin to take care of it.
Successful management of the public debt in the transactions involving large refunding operations is essential
to the public credit and closely related to successful Budget operations. The Treasury Department has been carry­
ing out a program of orderly funding and gradual liquidation of the public debt. On June 30, 1922, the gross public
debt was $22,963,381,708.31, as compared with $23,977,450,552.54 on June 30, 1921, showing a reduction of $1,014,068,844.23 during the fiscal year 1922. This reduction was accomplished through the following means: First, in
the amount of $422,694,600, through the cumulative sinking fund and other public debt expenditures payable from
certain specific receipts; second, in the amount of $277,572,593.13, through the reduction in the net balance in the
general fund of the Treasury; and third, in the amount of $313,801,651.10, through the surplus of ordinary receipts
over expenditures for the year.
On April 30, 1921, the short-term outstanding debt maturing before June 30, 1923, was more than $7,500,000,000,
which through the reductions referred to and refunding operations was reduced to about $4,500,000,000 on June 30,




VII

MESSAGE TRANSMITTING THE BUDGET.

1922, and up to November 15, 1922, this amount had been further reduced to approximately $3,000,000,000. These
refunding operations have involved the issue on October 16, 1922, of approximately $750,000,000 long-term bonds
and the issue of Treasury notes aggregating $2,743,334,000 maturing as follows: $701,897,700 during 1924,
$936,727,700 during 1925, and $1,104,708,600 during 1926. These refunding operations are carried on for the purpose
of changing the maturity date of public debt obligations and thus to avoid the necessity for meeting obligations of
many billions of dollars at one time. The resulting distribution of maturities does not indicate a reduction in the
total of such obligations.
We now come to the estimates of appropriations for 1924, amounting to $3,078,940,331.69. Thisis $195,298,359.14
less than the appropriations already made for the current fiscal year, 1923. Early in July I called together in open
meeting for the third time the executives constituting the business establishment of the Government and at that
time further emphasized the need of more rigid economy in the expenditure of public funds. I stated that the esti­
mated receipts for the fiscal year 1924 would not permit so liberal appropriations for that year as had been made for
the current fiscal year, 1923. The preparation of the estimates of appropriations as they appear in the Budget was
controlled by this policy. While it may be possible to make a small reduction in an item here and there, any material
reduction will necessitate a change in the administrative policy upon which estimates of appropriations for the fiscal
year 1924 are based. I am giving below a comparative statement of the estimates of appropriations for 1924 and
appropriations for 1923.

Statement No. 8 of the Budget gives a functional classification of the estimates for the fiscal year 1924, which
will be found interesting and informative, showing as it does the approximate amounts devoted to important Govern­
ment activities and interests. This classification has four general divisions—general functions, military functions,
civil functions, and a grouping of the nonfunctional appropriations.



VIII

THE BUDGET, 1924.

It will be found that a total of $103,070,886 is carried for general functions, which include the legislative, judicial,
executive, and the general administrative operations of the Government which can not be allocated to specific civil
functions.
The sum of $1,256,715,939 is provided for military functions, which includes military pensions, retirement pay,
annuities and World War allowances, and national defense.
The amount recommended for national defense is divided into two classes: Army, $256,552,887; Navy,
$289,880,993.
The amount recommended for the maintenance and operation of the Army will provide for a Regular Army
of 12,000 officers and 125,000 enlisted men, exclusive of the Philippine Scouts, which is the force now authorized
by Congress; will provide for the training of 15,000 reserve officers for a period of 15 days and for 150 for a period
of three months, as against a total of only 5,000 for 15 days during the current fiscal }^ear; will provide for the
attendance of 38,000 men at civilian military training camps as against 27,000 during this current fiscal year; and
will enable the Militia Bureau to increase the strength of the National Guard from 160,000 officers and men— the
strength on June 30, 1922— to 215,000 officers and men. While no increase in the number of students enrolled at
Reserve Officers’ Training Corps units at schools and colleges—now totaling 96,000 students in 225 institutions—
is provided, the funds recommended, however, will enable a larger number of these students to be given both basic
and advance courses of instruction.
The funds recommended will provide for all essentials connected with the upkeep of all military posts, camps
and stations, the Army transport service, the coast defenses of the United States, Panama and insular possessions,
and other military activities, and, in addition, allow $3,166,767 for new construction at military posts and $750,000
toward the replacement of worn-out portions of the Alaska cable. For the Air Service, the amount recommended
is $12,871,500, which is $23,500 less than the 1923 appropriation, and will permit this service to operate efficiently
in accordance with existing policy. For the United States Military Academy at West Point $2,066,428 is recom­
mended, an increase of $6,799 over 1923.
The amount recommended for the Navy will provide for the present enlisted personnel of 86,000 men; will main­
tain all present ships in commission; will increase the steaming radius of capital ships from 13,080 miles to 16,200
miles, and other ships proportionately; will provide training for 2,000 officers and 7,000 men in the Naval Reserve;
and will make provision for continuing all new ship construction in privately owned yards, except for reduction in
speed of construction on three light cruisers; for suspending the construction of four auxiliaries in navy yards and
reducing the speed of construction on two fleet submarines.
The amount provided in the Budget for military pensions and allowances includes $253,000,000 for pensions,
$434,584,050 for World War allowances, and $20,389,289 for retirement pay.

MESSAGE TRANSMITTING THE BUDGET.

IX

It seems appropriate here to consider the course of the retrenchment policy of the Government since the fiscal
year ending June 30, 1919, the year in which the armistice was signed. Exclusive of expenditures made in the reduc­
tion of the public debt, the total expenditures for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1920, were $6,403,343,841.21. The
expenditures for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1921, including $422,281,500 on account of reduction of the public
debt payable from ordinary receipts, under the new cumulative sinking fund, were $5,538,209,189.30. This was
further reduced for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1922, to $3,795,302,499.84. As I have previously stated, the
estimated expenditures for 1923 are $3,703,801,671, while the Budget for 1924 estimates the expenditures at
$3,180,843,234 for that year. These figures show a most satisfactory reduction in the expenditure of public moneys
since 1919.
Can there be a reasonable expectation for further considerable reduction in governmental expenditures in the
near future? This question is no doubt upon the lips of many. The burden of taxation caused by the World War
has borne heavily upon us all, and it has been the earnest desire of the Government to reduce this burden to the
minimum consistent with a proper functioning of the Federal services. We have seen, however, that approximately
two-thirds of the taxes collected go to pay certain fixed charges, over the expenditure of which there can be exercised
little or no administrative control. The interest on the public debt, the chief of the fixed charges, must be paid.
This will be $950,000,000 for the fiscal year 1924, constituting nearly one-third of the total expenditures of the Gov­
ernment. Among these are also certain permanent and indefinite appropriations for various purposes, and certain
large annual appropriations sanctioned by law and by public opinion.
After deducting these items there is left, as has been shown, approximately only one billion dollars, out of which
these normal operating expenses of the Government must be paid. It is against this group of expenditures that the
retrenchment policy of the Government has been directed. Never before in our financial history has there been such
close scrutiny on the part of both the Executive and the Congress of every item which contemplates expenditures for
the support of the Government. Not only have the departments themselves set up agencies of control both in the
preparation of their estimates and over their expenditures, but the pressure of the Executive has been directed toward
effecting economies in these ordinary governmental operations.
A reduction in expenditures would undoubtedly result from a reorganization of the departments and establish­
ments upon a more scientific basis, but we can not look to this alone to effect such a material reduction in cost of
Government operation as would justify the expression of hope for a considerable lessening of expenditures in the years
to come.
There is, however, another field of Government operation— a rapidly broadening field of Government expendi­
ture—which may be discussed with profit to us all. I refer to expenditures which are being made from appropriations
for Federal aid in lines of research, improvement, and development which, while having no direct connection with the
operations of the business of Government, have grown to become a recognized part of its activities. It is not easy,
therefore, to divorce from our minds the fact that considerable of the moneys appropriated for the Government are
spent for those things which do not pertain to the normal functions or operations of the business of Government.
There is question as to how far the Government should participate in these extraneous activities, and I am frank to
say that an answer to the question as to whether we can look forward to any further material reduction in the ex­
penditures of the Government in future years depends largely upon whether or not there will be a curtailment or
expansion of these activities, which have already added greatly to the annual drafts upon the Treasury of the United
States. These extraneous activities have flowed from laws enacted pursuant to popular demand, and I take this
occasion to refer to them for the purpose of showing that the taxation which necessarily results in providing funds
to meet them is a necessary incident to the fulfillment of the popular demand.
In the efforts which have been directed to reducing public expenditures, I have been much concerned in apparent
increasing State, county, and municipal indebtedness, and I am fearful lest this condition may be in part attributable
to the expenditures made by the Government pursuant to its Federal-aid laws, as many of these laws require State
contributions as a prerequisite to the extension of the Federal aid. Certainly an expression by the Government
that it is willing to bear a proportionate part of the cost of certain aid w'ork is an incentive to the States to contribute
their share, and it is only natural that this should lead to increasing State, county, and municipal indebtedness.
In adapting its procedure to the needs of the new budget system, I fully realize the far-reaching changes which
Congress made in its organization. While the budget bill was pending, the House, in anticipation of its final enact­
ment, changed its rules in order to centralize authority and responsibility over appropriation measures, and, further,
when the President last year transmitted the Budget, prepared according to the form and contents of the old Book
of Estimates, and an Alternative Budget, prepared according to a logical grouping of governmental services, the
House forthwith adopted the Alternative Budget and changed the form of the appropriation bills to conform to the
chapters of such Alternative Budget. This was a change of far-reaching importance. Following the action of the
House, the Senate reorganized its committee system for the consideration of appropriation bills, centralizing author­
ity and responsibility in its Committee on Appropriations.




X

THE BUDGET, 1924.

The President has received from Congress during this formative period of the budget system the most hearty
cooperation at all times. Many conferences with the Appropriations Committees of the House and Senate were
necessary in order to establish the form of the Budget. We were working in virgin soil, establishing new methods of
financial procedure. I am glad to say that no important step has been taken by the Executive, even though the matter
involved might be of purely executive concern, without first discussing the matter with your Appropriations Committees,
and I desire to express my appreciation of the helpful spirit always evidenced by them whenever we had occasion to
come together for the mutual consideration of questions of budgetary principle or procedure. I may say without fear
of exaggeration that we have been during the past two years colaborers in the greatest reform in our financial history.

THE CHART PRESENTATION.
The chart presentation of the estimates of receipts, expenditures, and appropriations for the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1924, given opposite page A5, sets forth graphically the source of income and how the average dollar
of the estimated expenditures and appropriations is apportioned to organization units and functions in the Budget
for the fiscal year 1924.
Chart 1 exhibits the estimates of appropriations by organization units, and gives the allocation of the average
dollar to the several departments and establishments for which the appropriations are recommended. It will be
seen that of the average dollar to be appropriated 0.4 cent is for the legislative establishment; 14 cents for inde­
pendent offices, of which 12 cents is for the Veterans’ Bureau; that 2.2 cents is for the Department of Agriculture;
8.6 cents for the Department of the Interior; 8.1 cents for the Navy Department; 8.9 cents for the War Department;
16.1 cents for the Post Office Department, all of which is payable from postal revenues; 39.4 cents for the Treasury
Department, of which 25.9 cents is for interest on the public debt; 9.4 cents for reduction in principal of the public
debt payable from ordinary receipts; and only 2.3 cents for the Departments of Commerce, Justice, Labor, and
State, and the District of Columbia.
Chart 2 gives the estimates of appropriations by governmental functions and exhibits the purpose for which the
average dollar is to be appropriated for the fiscal year 1924. It shows that of each dollar recommended for
appropriation 2.8 cents goes for general functions; 34.2 cents for military functions, of which 14.9 cents is for national
defense and 19.3 cents for military pensions, retirement pay, annuities, World War allowances, and life-insurance
claims. It also shows that of the average dollar to be appropriated 26 cents is for civil functions, of which 16..1
cents is for postal service; 2.18 cents for promotion, regulation, and operation of marine transportation; and 2.6
cents for public works. Of the total, 37 cents of each dollar included in the estimates is for nonfunctional purposes.
This includes 1 cent for refunds, drawbacks, and like appropriations; 9.4 cents for public debt retirements; and 25.9
cents for interest on the public debt.
Chart 3 exhibits the receipts of the Government by sources of revenue, exclusive of postal revenues. Of the
average dollar received, 72.15 cents comes from internal revenue, 12.65 cents is received from customs, and 15.20
cents is derived from miscellaneous sources, which comprise interest and discount, sale of Government property,
public domain receipts, fees, fines, penalties and forfeitures, gifts and contributions, repayments of investments,
District of Columbia receipts, Panama Canal receipts, and trust fund receipts.
Chart 4 gives the estimates of expenditures by organization units for the fiscal year 1924. Of the average dollar to
be expended it shows that 12.2 cents will be disbursed by the Veterans’ Bureau; 4.1 cents by the Department of Agri­
culture; 0.5 cent by the Department of Commerce; 8.5 cents by the Department of the Interior; 0.5 cent by the
Department of Justice; 0.2 cent by the Department of Labor; 8.5 cents by the Navy Department; 8.4 cents by the
War Department; 15.5 cents by the Post Office Department; 0.4 cent by the State Department; 39.3 cents by the
Treasury Department, of which 9.2 cents represents reduction in principal of public debt payable from ordinary
receipts, 25.2 cents for interest on the public debt, and 1 cent for investment of trust funds; 0.6 cent by the District
of Columbia, and but 1.3 cents to be disbursed by the legislative branch and the independent establishments other
than the Veterans’ Bureau.
Chart 5 gives the estimates of expenditures by governmental functions. It supplies information showing for the
average dollar the general end or purpose to be accomplished by the expenditures during the fiscal year 1924. Of
the average dollar to be expended during that fiscal year 2.8 cents will be spent for the general functions of the
Government; 32.7 cents will go for military functions, of which 13.5 cents is for national defense. The gross amount,
however, to be expended for national defense is 15.09 cents, which is decreased by a credit of 1.59 cents
on account of repayments expected to be received from special war agencies during the ensuing fiscal year; and
19.2 cents for military pensions, retirement pay, annuities, World War allowances, and life-insurance claims. The
chart also shows that 27.3 cents will be expended for civil functions, of which 1.4 cents goes for promotion, regulation,
and operation of marine transportation; 15.5 cents for postal service; 4.4 cents for public works, and but 6 cents for
other civil functions; that 37.2 cents will be expended for nonfunctional operations, of which 1 cent represents
refunds and drawbacks; 34.4 cents for fixed debt charges, of which 9.2 cents is for public-debt retirements payable
from ordinary receipts, 25.2 cents for interest on the public debt, and 1.8 cents for the disbursement of trust funds.
The amounts which form the basis for computing the allocation of the average dollar for the estimates of appro­
priations by functions for the fiscal year 1924, Chart 2, are given in detail in Budget statement No. 8. The data used
for the income statement— Chart 3— are supplied by Budget statement No. 3, the data for computing the average
dollar for the estimated expenditures by functions, chart 5, are given in Budget statement No. 9. The data for Chart 4,
giving the average dollar allocation of the estimates of expenditures by organization units, are given in Budget
statement No. 1, and similar data for Chart 1 are given in the recapitulation of estimates of appropriations.
Chart 3 does not include the estimated postal revenues for the fiscal year 1924, because such revenues are not
usually considered receipts of the general fund. However, postal service operations are included in Charts 1, 2, 4,
and 5, therefore, a computation excluding the postal establishment is exhibited below to set forth the changed
proportions as the inclusion of the postal service increases the proportion allocated to “ civil functions” and reduces
the proportions of the average dollar allocated to the other functions.

libraries (acts Jan. 12, 1895, vol. 28, p. 603, sec. 17; Mar. 28, 1922, vol. 42, p. 436, sec. 1)..
N o t e . — Heretofore a part of this appropriation has been separately stated to cover “ equipment, material,
and supplies for distribution of public documents.” It is impossible to keep separate the accounts for
material and supplies used for department mailing and the other mailing required in the distribution to
libraries, officials, and to the public of sales publications; therefore these separate appropriations have
been consolidated, and it is recommended they so remain.

Except for one person detailed for part time duty in the district office at New York City, no details to
the commission’s central office in Washington or to any of its district offices shall be made during the fiscal
year ending June 30, 1924; but this shall not affect the making of details for service as members of boards
of examiners outside the immediate offices of the district secretaries. The Civil Service Commission shall
have power in case of emergency to transfer or detail any of its employees herein provided for to or from
its office force or field force.
N o t e . —The greater part of the commission’s field force has been paid for many years by other depart­
ments and offices, the present cost of the detailed employees amounting to $280,798.10. To this should be
added $45,680, the commission’s current appropriation for the field force, a total of $326,478.10.
The foregoing estimate is to comply with direction in the appropriation act of June 12, 1922, that the
commission estimate for taking over on its own rolls all employees serving as details from other branches
of the service to the commission’s 13 district offices. This estimate represents a reduction of $66,478.10 in
present cost to the Government.

1 The net disbursements for 1922 do not represent the full cost for that year because the appropriation
was exhausted about the middle of June and payment on approximately $100,000 worth of claims was held
up until the next fiscal year.
2 The increase in the estimated cost of medical treatment and supplies is to take care of cases which have
been transferred from Veterans’ Bureau hospitals to private hospitals, and new cases which in accordance
with past practice would have been sent to Veterans’ Bureau hospitals but will now have to be sent to
private institutions.

1 The above items heretofore provided and paid for, in whole or in part, from Treasury Department
or Post Office Department appropriations, must be paid for in the fiscal years 1923 and 1924 entirely out
of General Accounting Office appropriations.
2 The organization of the investigation work in the General Accounting Office, under authority of the
act of June 10,1921, 42 Stat., pp. 5, 6, sec. 312 (a), did not progress during 1922 so far as to call for investi­
gation to any great extent at places elsewhere than at the seat of government. It is believed that this
work will expand during 1923 so that the expense will approximate the original estimate and that the
full amount of $46,075 will be required for 1924.
3 On account of the present lack of certain equipment and the urgent need of same, about $30,000 more
will be required for purchase of equipment for the General Accounting Office in the fiscal year 1923 than
was expended in 1922 and more than will probably be needed in 1924.

PERMANENT SPECIFIC APPROPRIATION.

0 ioperative Agricultural Extension Work—
For the purpose of paying the expenses of cooperative agricultural extension work and
the necessary printing and distributing of information in connection with same, there
is permanently appropriated $480,000 for each year, $10,000 of which is paid annually
to each State which has by action of its legislature assented to the provisions of the
act. There was also appropriated an additional sum of $600,000 for the fiscal year
following that in which the foregoing appropriation first became available, and for
each year thereafter for seven years a sum exceeding by $500,000 the sum appropriated
for each preceding year, and for each year thereafter there is permanently appro­
priated the sum of $4,100,000 in addition to the sum of $480,000. The additional
sums are allotted annually to each State by the Secretary of Agriculture and paid in
the proportion which the rural population of each State bears to the total rural popu­
lation of all the States as determined by the next preceding Federal census, but no
payment out of the additional appropriations can be made in any year to any State
until an equal sum has been appropriated for that year by the legislature of such
State, or provided by State, county, college, local authority, or individual contribu­
tions from within the State, for the maintenance of cooperative agricultural extension
work (act May 8, 1914, vol. 38, p. 373, sec. 3).....................................................................

shall be set aside for administrative and operating expenses and $2,027,600
[, of which $300,000 shall be immediately available, ] for the payment of indem­
nities: Provided, however, That in carrying out the purpose of this appropriation,
if in the opinion of the Secretary of Agriculture it shall be necessary to destroy
tuberculous animals and to compensate owners for loss thereof, he may, in his
discretion, and in accordance with such rules and regulations as he may pre­
scribe, expend in the city of Washington or elsewhere out of the moneys of this
appropriation, such sums as he shall determine to be necessary, within the limita­
tions above provided, for the reimbursement of owners of animals so destroyed,

by law or by suitable action in keeping with its authority in the matter, and by
rules and regulations adopted and enforced in pursuance thereof, provide inspec­
tion of tuberculous animals and for compensation to owners of animals so de­
stroyed, but no part of the money hereby appropriated shall be used in com­
pensating owners of such animals except in cooperation with and supplementary
to payments to be made by State, Territory, county, or municipality where
condemnation of such animals shall take place; nor shall any payment be made
