\Vami in a n A prll 6.^Kx-Seeret ary^Kndicott, In company with his successor,^Secretary 1'roctor, called on the president^this afternoon. He afterwards talked ^| nte^freely with a reporter. He said he felt^relieved at being, once more a private^citizen, and added: ^The president does^not seem to be looking very welt; he evl^ently needs rest The American people^put too much strain on the president. Ills^work ought to be delegated, and the tune^ii near at hand when it will have to he.^Our great need is a more extended civil^service. This Is the only government^where there Is a scramble for office, undig^(tied, unpatriotic, and until the tenure is^made secure ami the places are rilled^with good men, the president will be o\ afl^burdened. Look at Kngland. Tht re is a^free government, and these m^n who de^sire to enter the employ of the government^re tested thoroughly and If competent are^ffered every inducement to stay in the ser^ice. Within the lite time of the genera^^tion now being bom, there will he in tbll^country an army of officials three hundred^thousand strong. Then the civil service^will be a necessity, and then the president^will be relieved of his drudgery of appoint^^ments by the heads of departments, and^because no one man will be able to do the^work. The reform would not commence^toe soon if It were put Into operation at^once.''
