Tanners ad ministration and had not worked well be cause the certified incom cives completed to the extent of about per cent of tha whole number certitld Effect of tha Bulu This opinion had bscn rend to Lemon in khe presence of tho commissioner who had sustained it The effect of the new order was not to give any Washington City nttoruey au advantage over any other attorney doing business here but

timony was entirely favorable to thu merit system He said that men who passed iih8 beat examination mads the best elects and attributed the good work of the OIMJ am bureau this year partly to the better class of men obtained by the examinations The persons employed In the census office had been examined by a commissioner up pointed from the bureau instead of by the regular civil for several reasons one being that If the reg ular commission examined applicants it would have brought many people here from all over the country who would hnve been left stranded when they had beun employed a few months Some Changes He Would Make lie promoted employes in hisoffice en tirely on ihe merit system He advucatud a change iu the present plan of civil serr ict appointment First he would have eooli department examine applicants for eniploymetit therein instead of a general civil service commission doing that duty second he would have appoint ments made for a term of years wilh preference for reappointment if the appointee proved efficient This latto wuid enable the departments to weec out aged and useless persons who wer kept entirely out sympathy Unde any rule the honest enforcement of civil service law would depend largely upon the honesty of subordinate official SENATOR DIXONS AMUSEMENT HeIllustrates a Tariff Compilation with Senate Sketches WASHINGTON CITY Sept 10 Senate Dixon of
