By authority of the United States, be it enacted by the Philippine Commission, that:

SECTION 1. Section three of Act Numbered Seven hundred and eighty-six, entitled "An Act appropriating the sum of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars, in money of the United States, for expenses in connection with the purchase, sale, and distribution of rice to the inhabitants of the Philippine Islands in the discretion of the Civil Governor," is hereby amended by striking out the second and third sentences of said section and inserting in lieu thereof the following:
"The provincial treasurer or supervisor-treasurer shall account to the Insular Auditor for all moneys so received, and shall remit the same to the Insular Treasurer, or deposit the same in the provincial treasury if so directed by the Civil Governor, in which case such moneys shall be deposited to the credit of a 'Congressional relief fund' to be disbursed on orders of the provincial board for such public works in the province as may be approved by the Civil Governor," so that said section three of Act Numbered Seven hundred and  eighty-six  shall read as follows:

"SEC. 3. When any of the rice purchased under this Act shall be sold by a provincial supervisor or supervisor-treasurer, as the case may be, the proceeds of the sale shall be paid into the provincial treasury upon order of the supervisor. The provincial treasurer or supervisor-treasurer shall account to the Insular Auditor for all moneys so received, and shall remit the same to the Insular Treasurer, or deposit the same in the provincial treasury if so directed by the Civil Governor, in which case such moneys shall be deposited to the credit of a 'Congressional relief fund' to be disbursed on orders of the provincial board for such public works in the province as may be approved by the Civil Governor. When the rice is distributed for work done or gratuitously, the supervisor shall keep careful account of the rice thus distributed and make report thereof to the Insular Auditor, including a statement of the work done for the rice distributed, with copy of the receipts received by him from the beneficiaries or from the presidents or other municipal officers through whom such distribution is made. The accounting by the Insular Purchasing Agent and the provincial supervisors and treasurers under this Act shall lie in accordance with regulations to be prescribed by the Insular Auditor."
SEC. 2. The public good requiring the speedy enactment of this bill, the passage of the same is hereby expedited in accordance with section two of "An Act prescribing the order cf procedure by the Commission in the enactment of laws," passed September twenty-sixth, nineteen hundred.

SEC. 3. This Act shall take effect on its passage.
