Excerpt from United States Government Publications Monthly Catalogue, Vol. 7 The Board on Geographic Names grew out of the want of uniformity in the use of names of localities by the several bureaus of the Government charged with the production of charts and maps relating not only to the United States, but involving in some instances the geography of the whole world. It was found "that in no department or bureau was there anything like a system of nomenclature, the geographical names adopted being rather the result of accident than otherwise, one authority being accepted in one bureau at one time, while that of others was entirely different." The board consists of representatives from the Coast Survey, the Department of State, the Treasury, War, Navy, and Post Office Departments, the Smithsonian Institution and the Geological Survey. Prof. T. C. Mendenhall, Superintendent of the Coast and Geodetic Survey, is Chairman, and Lieut. Richardson Clover, Hydrographer of the Navy Department, the Secretary of the Board. While its functions are purely governmental, and its decisions binding on Government officers only, it is probable that its conclusions will be quite generally accepted. The first Bulletin contains a list of 226 corrected names. An important report on sewerage, with more especial reference to the District of Columbia, has been made by a board of sanitary engineers, consisting of Mr. Rudolph Hering, Mr. S. M. Gray, and Mr. F. P. Stearns, who were appointed by the President, under authority of Congress. One of the outgrowths of the recent irrigation controversy in Congress was an investigation to determine the proper location of artesian wells within the area of the 97th meridian and east of the Rocky Mountains. The Secretary of Agriculture has submitted a voluminous report on the subject, which Congress ordered printed. The Department of Agriculture has issued a special report on the diseases of the horse, prepared under the direction of Dr. Salmon. The work seems to be in high favor in Congress; the House having passed a resolution to print 100,000 copies, afterwards reduced by the Senate to 50,000.
