Thcro was no doubtful ring In tho Secre

tions on present Incumbents would bo
commenced under this policy, tho Secretary
said, "Policy, policy; thcro'a no policy
about It; Its Jut common sense. Thcro has
never been any other policy."
Tho occaelon of tho Secretary's remarks
was a question about tho recent order to
tho effect that heads of bureaus In tho Interior-
Department should, wheu thoy
wished to mako a vacancy, first submit the
case to him. Tho Secretary eajs positively
that ho did not lssuo his order for tho pur

Hut ho declines to say anything about tin

on the word "Inefficient," aud dented that
there had been any "turn-tho-ra6cals-out"
or any other particular policy Inaugurated.
There was a look in tho genial Secretary's
eye the while, though, that had In it noth

of tho United States Supremo Court who
