In the rrcrnt t r a ~ ~ s f r r (Septetnt)er I ) of Mr. W. 1)awsotl Johnston to the librarianship of the Bureau of Education, the Library loses with regret a highly vall~edemployee, but the C;ovrrnment gains it1 a wider and more distinctive opportunity for an accomplished bibliographer. Mr. Johnston's routine work with us was in classification and cataloguing (in which I3ritish history has bcen his specialty); I ) L I ~i l l his by-hours he compiled and rditrd tllc first volun~eof the IIistory of the Library of Congress, i s s ~ ~ rin 1004. No d incan contribution to the recortl of American institutions, this volume has bcen of great importance to the prestige of the Library, and is to be of permanent utility as embodying in convenient form all the documentary evidence of its first sixty years. Mr. Johnston's energy and industry in collecting this and his discretion in the presetitation of itall accomplished in his personal time-have laid 1 he 1,ibrarv under a deep obligation, which we trust that he will make still deeper by bringing the work to date. In thc subordinate positions there have been the usual number of changes, due chieflv to tnarriage (of wolllen emplovees) or to transfers (always promotions) from otlr service to that of sorrle other library. Among smaller libraries supplied is that of Waltham, Mass., to which Mr. Harold T. Doughertv has gone from us a s librarian. It seems probable that in the Catalogue Division such withdrawals from the service, combined with absences through illness, reduce by nearly a fifth the net efficiency of the force. They may not affect the quality of the output, for this is sustained by the more permanent assistants of higher grade, but they appreciably diminish its quantity.

The a n ~ o u n tc~upcl~dcd salaries ($74,072.,37) inclu(1es lor the sun1 of 54,680 paitl in salaries to certain cinl,loyeibs who have been classifving and crediting the olrl drl)osits received prior to I 897. 'This c.xpeiiditure is chargeable to arrears. The rurrvnt expenses of the Ofice are therefore considerablj more than met by the ct~rrentreceipts. The above statement includes (111 tiivhursr,munts except the cost of furniture, of printing, and of binding, but only ravh receipts. In addition t o cash fees tlie copyright t)usiiless brings each year to the (;overn~nent, in the articles deposited, property t o the value of many thousands of dollars. During the past fiscal year 227,047 such articles wcre received. The value of those tirawn up into thc collections of the Library far exceeded the amount of net cash earnings. The work of the Copvright Office is divided into two portions : (1 ) The current I,usiness, covering applications received since the reorganization of the OHice under t lle Register in 1897; ( 2 ) the arrears, the classification, crediting, and indexing of the entries and deposits prior to I 897 (i. e . , fro111 1870, when the copyright hrlsiness was first placed under the Librarian of Congress). On the 3d day of July, rgo7, when the report of thenz;;zne;+"Copyright Office was submitted, the remit tarices received tip t o the third mail of the day had been recorded and acknowledged; the account books of tlie bookke&;~in~ division were written u p and posted t o June 30, ant1 the accounts rendered to the Treasury I)epartmer~t were settled up to

'The index for all dramatic compositions registered since July l o , 1870, was completcxtl t o June 30, numbering about 80,000 cards. A similar plan in regard to photographs is under way and 23,978 cards have been-written.

During the thirty-seven yea& since the copyright work became a business of the Library o f Congress the total number of entries has been 1,873,512. In my report for 1905 I described certain Conferences CoPrriau ).,rr*crr looking to a revision and consolidation of the United States copyright laws. In my report for last year I mentioned that a bill had been introduced and hearings had, but that the bill was still in committee. Before the end of the last session, however, bills were reported out froin each con]mittee and were pending a t time of adjournment.
