"THE CIVIL SKllVICB MACHINE."
Mr. President, there Is a philosophical
reason why this civil tcrvlco machine could
not be a successful one. Tho great princi
ples ot constitutional and of nvunlclp.il law
wbteb are tlio safeguards of public rights
and.of private privileges, tho customs ot
society which' bold It. In the tenure of path
wnjs of lespectabilltyand honor, thocliqiiot
of life which makes tho law ot tho social
circle all tbc60 things aro tho growth ot
ages and hnvo rlpcnrd In their time. This
civil service reform statute sprang up Iu a
night, an unwholesome growth, or rather
not a growth, but a device, an Invention.
It was not a fruit that ripened out ot pub
lic demand and public experience and a
just sense of responsibility. It was an
evatlou of responsibility, and nu attempt to
do In a sldo way what men feared tlioy
could not do directly. And, sir, when this
Civil Service Commission too,k' charge" of
the patronago ot this Government, they
tiiemseivea went inroeyonu wun wub 'con
templated by Congress In ltt establishment.
Avbat right havo three men, sitting lb.tho
city of Washington, to say to an American
Citizen, wbd Is guaranteed all the Immuni
ties of Amorlcau citizenship In our Consti
tution, that bo shall not bold an olllco If bo
Is over -15 jears of agol Aud yet three men,
who were put in power without a'' etuglo
.vote being cast for themi directly or in
directly, old undertako to amend the Con
stitution of tbo United States, to fix a 6tntus
of eligibility to office of which tbo people
bad never dreamed, and to ostracize one
third of tho American people from sharing
tbo offices wlileh tbelr taxes sustain.
TOO MUCH l'OIl A CZ1II.
Sir, If an emperor or czar bad done such a
thins tl that he would havo beard the
howl of tbo people around bis palace; but
It was doho under the decorqus name ot
"civil-service reform," and all parties havo
bowed to It. I am glad tq say, however
nnd It Is an Item which ought to go to the
credit of tho retiring Administration that
under Democratic rule a third of tho Amer
ican people have been rc-enfranchised, and
that when a man gets to middle life, iu tho
maturity of his powers aud in the full tide
of his experience, bo .Is not now prohibited
by clvll-scrvico reform from boldlug office.
, "civil. SEHVICE" was what pid it.
Mr. President, tbero Is Just ouo other ob
Jcctlou that I bavo to building up this sys
tem. Tbo comity of political parties, the
cotnmou seuso ot tho people, the Inst fair-
mindedness of mnn would reguluto the
question ot turning out and kecplug In
oflklal cmDlojcs on a much fairer aud bet
ter lino than any statute If there had
becu no civil service statute tn existence
whnttouver, If President Cleveland and his.
Cublnet nnd his official advlseis had bad
full power to remove eveiy olllccr In this
Federal Uovirumeiit, front tho highest to
the lowest, ami to deeluuulo also the Person
wlio would take the place of tbo person re
mot id, I do not think that tbero
would bavo been auj thing like a
elcnn sweep or a revolutionary cliaugo
limongst tbo servants nf tlio peo

ing soon Into the Presidency, bad absolute

In Washington or elsewhere iu tho couutry,
1 have no Idea that there wonld bo a revo
