CARS NO'LONGER BE SACK. ED INTO THE CAR 'BARN (W. A. P. Report.) Ottawa, Dec. George Mur- ray, In his report on the public ser- vice of Canada, aays that nothing im- pressed him so-much as the almost in- tolerable ;-burden which tho present system of transacting business im- poses on They have too much to do, and do too much, too. Much of tho time of the Cabinet Is taken up lir-denllng with minor mat- ters. The suggestion is made that a committee of ministers should be ap- pointed to review.-the whole of the duties now discharged by the council and select those which can safely he left to-Individual ministers. In regard to appointments and pro-, motions in the service, also, a board of two or three ministers with an equal number of permanent officials, might be constituted" to consider, them, and if approved, their commendation would lake effect at once. The treasury hoard should be abol- ished and Its duties discharged by the several departments by the appointment and promotion'board which is suggested. The financial tuestlons which now conies before the treasury hoard could bo left to the de- partment of finance. j Having dealt with ministers in their I collective capacity, Sir George pro- :eeds to consider they could be relieved of some of.'the multifarious duties they have the leads of departments. The business of a minster, he says, is not to ad- minister, hut to direct policy. The idininistration should be left to his uhordlnates. This is the foundation on merit, as tile act di- that grave Injustice has exclusively reels, anil _ ____......_.. been done to officers who had been passed over. Dealing with retirements. Sir George says that some system of securing re- tirement, la absolutely essential. If the public service is to bo maintained on u satisfactory condition. A sys- tem of pensions Is an essential ele- ment In'any system of retirement. Ho urged also one of the most im- portant items In civil service reform that some system of, pensions, suet as .that which was rescinded in 1S9S ihould be'.re-esluhliBhed. If restored, retirement should b- optional with the officer and the de- partment at the age of sixty and coin pulsory at sixty-three. That the'citizens'of Dull Addition have been criticizing the street ,of any sound system of departmental car service, w'il! hercaitcr have no j organization reason to complain, was the state- ment made to ttie Herald this morn- ing by Superintendent Kcid, of tho electrical dopartment. "We will go back to the old ser- he said, "ami will have the line cars cross at the Ninth St. siding as they did when the service first inaugurated. Just what .-difference it makes where they cross I cannot see, for they are required" to run to a certain schedule, and must make the meets the same one .place as another. When tlie spur was ,t built along the side 01 the car barns it intended'tllat it should 'he used as part of the system for operation purposes, but merely as a storage track for cars to be repaired. For a few clays the cars were run around the barn without my knowl- edge. This was changed and tlie meeting place fixed at However, we arc out to Greater responsibilities should be In his opinion there should be no deduction from salary for pension The pensions should be an entirely free gift from the State. Sir George refers to the.absence of control" from the authority charged with the duty of co-ordinating the organization of tbe whole service. The result was that each department arranged the staff in Its cv.'n way. There Is, there- fore, a great lack of uniformity. A central department should he es- tablished, dealing with all questions of public health. A departmental 'commission should be appointed' to deal with London, Dec. peace plcnl lotentiarles, representing the lialkin allies and the Turkish empire, sombled at four o'clock this' after noon. They had not met since Tues lay, when an adjournment was tak en for the purpose of permitting the Ottoman representatives to commiin- eate with" the government at Constan- Inople on the subject of the admis- ion of the Greek delegates to the ouference. The peace plenipotentiaries were In esslon today for only about three- uarters of an hour, when the Turk- ish delegates hurriedly left the palace and went to their hotel. They refus- ed to give the reporters any Informa- tion. The Ottoman has auth- vr w FOR BEAVER Valuable Fur-Bearing Animal is Fast Becoming Extinct Its Character Edmonton, Dec. Law- in, chief game warden for Alberta, oday issued instructions to trappers nd hunters that the closed season or beaver, protected since 1908, has een extended from December 31, 912, to December 31, 1915. He re- orts also that the beaver, which had an important part in the romance of the early history of North America, has.multiplied rapidly during the last surveying and map-making. Several departments are now engaged in this work. One department ought to deal with steamship subsidies, i Customs and inland revenue should be amalgamated What does not concern excise might be attached to trade and commerce. The .Conservation Commission Is s u e imposed upon the deputy heads. Their not adcQIiately equipped with expert the barn, please the people, and will put on the old ser- vice." Mr. Reid is quite pleased with the change in the number oi passengers carried as a result of the ice attrac- tions at the lake. Tbe cars arc av- eraging about 1500 people daily now, whereas 3501) was the average before the lake resort sprang tin. Five hun- dred people carried out and back, daily makes the 1000 difiercncc, and norta-nce, Soweve that d.nercnce is enough to carry the nlgher receipts over the fixed mark of daily. The lake therefore makes just the difference between a paying and n non-paying system. The new turbo-generator at tlie. power plant furnished power for the j cars on Tuesday for the lirsS time. The plant is now capable of produc- ing 3000 horsepower daily, and could handle 20 cars if necessary. The new machine is one of the most up-to- date in the province-. A horse-power can be developed -with rnout 16 pounds of steam, whereas the old en- gines and motors at the plant re- quire from 80 to 21 pounds. Tlie new port-ion of the plant is therefore-snore economical by about 20 per cent. I duties should be to give effect to tlie minister's decisions. Four or five of the more Important departmental pol- itical demits heads should be appoint- ed to relieve ministers, not only of some of their, departmental .duties, but also of many interviews and nego- tiations with members of parliament and others. Such deputy bead should -enjoy the full confidence of bis minister, so that lie could speak generally in the name of the latter without specific reference to him, and :on other cases could refer for direction as occasion required. The propositions of the estimates ought to be entirely with the depart- ment cf finance, as tho present sys- tem is wasteful for the' time-of the ministers and likely to result in effective control. The proceedings should be carried on in writing between the Minister of Finance and tlie departments concern- ed. The Cabinet could deal with points of difference between the Min- ister of Finance and one of bis col- leagues; In respect to appointments to the public service, recruiting by competi- tive examination has given general satisfaction. Nothing better has yet been suggested. -It Is of great Im- portance, however, to maintain a much of excellence than for the third division. The limits of all third departments are far too wid assistance. The commission of thi'rty two members is too large. Three, or at most five, for a permanent com- mission, would be a suitable body. This commission would be a thinking, planning, advising and training body, 'with 110 executive functions." It would be responsible under the con- trol of the Prime Minister. Sir George, in conclusion, says that of all the topics.he touched, the two most important were: The relief of ministers from routine and administrative duties, and the Improvement of the organization ant personnel of the. nubile service. ,......_..L uulu- HUB uiuuiLMitJu ntmuiv tnc orized its delegates to peace con-: four years, notwithstandlns raids by ference to propose at tbe next session law-breakers The re-ular hunters that Adrianonle and ail other besleg-jand trappers in the north country, he ed I urkish towns shall be re-victualled, adds, have not out of sca- nnd if the proposal Is not accepted by''son, but have assisted in enforcing the delegates of. the Balkan allies, ne-j the laws. gotiations are to be broken off, ac-j There are many who believe that cording to a news agency despatch the beaver, the standard by which all received here.from Constantinople.
