Mr. MeGarin (flem.. 111.) claimed that ex-Supervising Architect O'Kourkt-had said the building was unsafe. Mr. Saj'- ers made the claim that O'Kourke had said just the opposite... There was considerable bickering over these coullicting statements, particularly when Mr. Dockery (dem., Mo.) said if the building were unsafe he would vote for the. bill; if it wore safe he would vote against it. Mr. Durburrow(dem., 111.), in support of Mr. MeGanc's,contention that Mr. O'Kourke liad said that the building was unsafe, quoted a report of the ex- architect of the treasury dated August 31, 1S93, in which he said the building was unsafe.
