however, that he would take no Im

any move mado will be for tho benenl
of the public service.
"The people down town." said Mr
Boyd, "seem to be expecting radical
changes. I have concluded nnd Sir.

same view, that no changes should bo
made until our appointments have been
confirmed by the Senate. The faenate

the Ooernor will send our names in
