The United States Geological Survey was created by an act of Congress that was approved on March 3, 1879, so that March 3, 1904, may be said to have marked the twenty-fifth year of its existence. There was recently issued by the Survey, partly in recognition of the quarter-century anniversary, a bulletin (No. 227) describing its origin, development, organization, and operations, and it will not be inappropriate to quote here, in this twenty-fifth annual report, a few paragraphs of that publication.
