This brief note is but the prelinliilary rc=cord due to the moment. The Chief Assistant 1,ihrarianship has been filled by the prornotiori of Appleton 1'. C. Griffin frorri the post of Chief Bibliographer, which he had held since il s creation irl I goo. Mr. Griffin's mtirc life has been spent in serviceable library work in connection with research collections; for twentynine years (1865--1894) in the Hoston Public Library (where hc was successively assistant custodian of the shelves, custodian of the building, and keeper of books), and since tben, except for a brief interval during which he performed special work for the Boston Athenarum and the I ~ n o x a t , the 1,ibrary of Congress, to which in August, 1897, he was appointed by my predecessor, 1,ibrariail I'oung, as an "assistant litjrarian." His service here has been incessant anti iillportant in dealing with requests for bibliographic informatio~l,and the direct aid of research; but he has in addition cornpilecl and edited the reference lists on various topics which have been issued by the Library during the past eight years. His previous bibliographic publications had already gained hirn a wide reputation.

Report of the Librarian of Conqress

The fees from copyrights are covered into the Treasury and not applied directly to the niaintenance of the Copyright Oace. They form a regular revenue of the Government, however, and a net revenue over the direct expenses of the Office, as appears from the following comparison :

6,420. 31

The amount expended for salaries ($74,784 29) includes the sum of $4,680 paid in salaries to certain employees who have been classifying and crediting the old deposits received prior to 1897. This expenditure is chargeable to arrears. The current expenses of the Ofice are therefore considerably more than met by the current receipts. The above statement includes all disburs~nenis except the cost of furniture, of printing, an! of binding, but only cash receipts. In addition to cash fees the copyright business brings each year to the Government, in the articles deposited, property to the value of many thousands of dollars. During the past fiscal year 2 2 I ,722 such articles were received. The value of those drawn up into the collections of the Library far exceeded the amount of net cash earnings. The work of the Copyright Office is divided into two portions : (I) The current business, covering applications received since the reorganization of the Ofice under the Register in 1897; ( 2 ) the arrears, the classification, crediting, and indexing of the entries and deposits prior to 1897 (i. e., from 1870, when the copyright business was first placed under the Librarian of Congress).
