Both political parties would be in a better position It' they hadn't any positions to fill. Patronage is con- sidered serviceable, strengthening the party, but we can't see it in that light. For every man who is satisfied with an appointment, there are'ten who are disgruntled. Then positions are quenily filled with men unfitted for mem, the choice being made almost wholly upon the test of party -service. tics. Let an independent civil ser- vice make the appoint- ments for the inside, and the outside, service.
