REPORT No. 564

TO SELL THE PRESENT POST-OFFICE SITE AND BUILD

ING AT DOVER, DEL.

APRIL 21 (calendar day, APRIL 28), 1930.-Ordered to be printed

Mr. KEYES, from the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds,

submitted the following

REPORT

[To accompany H. R. 8578]

The Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds, to whom was referred the bill (H. R. 8578) to sell the present post office site and building at Dover, Del., having considered the same, report favorably thereon with the recommendation that the bill do pass.

No objection to the passage of the proposed legislation is made by the Secretary of the Treasury whose letter, addressed to the chairman of the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds, regarding this measure is herewith appended.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT,

Washington, March 29, 1930. Hon. HENRY W. KEYES, Chairman Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds,

United States Senate. Dear Mr. CHAIRMAN: I have your letter of March 19, requesting the views of this department relative to bill H. R. 8578, to sell the present post-office site and building at Dover, Del.

The Treasury Department will interpose no objection to the enactment of the legislation proposed by the bill.

However, it is not likely that any action would be taken by the department if the bill were enacted into law, unless a new Federal building to take the place of the present building were authorized. In that event the department would have authority under the provisions of the public buildings act of May 25, 1926, to sell the present site and building and to acquire a new site and construct a building thereon. It would require specific legislative authority to accept another site in exchange or part payment for the present Federal building and site. Very truly yours,

A. W. MELLON,

Secretary of the Treasury. O

The Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds, to whom was referred the bill (H.

[blocks in formation]

This proposed legislation was suggested by the Secretary of the
Treasury, as shown by the following letter from the Secretary to the
Speaker of the House of Representatives:

TREASURY DEPARTMENT,

January 27, 1930.
The SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

Sir: Pursuant to authority contained in existing legislation authorizing the
acquisition of land for an inspection station at Babb-Piegan, Mont., a site therefor
has been selected embracing two contiguous tracts of land owned by certain
Blackfeet Indians, one tract containing 20 acres and the other containing 42.95
acres. It is understood that the 42.95-acre tract is subject to a reservation for
mineral rights for the benefit of the Blackfeet Tribe of Indians. It is therefore
recommended that the existing legislation be amended so as to authorize the
Secretary of the Treasury to accept title to the larger tract of land subject to a
reservation of mineral rights in favor of the Blackfeet Tribe of Indians.
A draft of the desired legislation is inclosed.
Respectfully,

A. W. MELLON,

Secretary of the Treasury. The bill as it passed the House of Representatives was referred by your committee to the Secretary of the Treasury on March 6, 1930, and no objection to its passage is made by the Secretary whose letter, addressed to the chairman of the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds, is herewith appended.
