while the President's instructions
prohibiting political activity on the
part of competitive classified em
ployees havo been public ever since
15)02, yet in actual practice the
effective and thoroughgoing enforce

in this connection has only dated
from the adoption of the rule in
June last, which gave the Civh Ser
vice Commission the right to investi
gate and report on charges of im
proper political activity on the part
of those in the competitive classified
service. For this reason the Com
mission has heretofore been lenient
in recommending punishments. But
a sufficient time has now elapsed for
us to assume that the Civil Service
Rules are understood throughout the
service, and we believe therefore
that the time has also come for a
somewjiat greater degree of severity
for the penally indicted, at least in
aggravated eases. We recommend
therefore that the several Depart
ments he requested to publish to
their employees in the competitive
classified service the fact that any
man violating the provisions of the
rule in question renders himself
liable to punishment by removal
We desire that the subordinates in
the several Departments be acquaint

that in the event of any misconduct
by them in the future the Conimi
