studied since his ?-lection what should 1??? done
to make the service what It ought to he. To him
It Is not. as to some others it doubtless Is, a
Question of what offices may be at the disposal
of the Administration. He has heard all that
those who presented this view may have had to
Say In support of It. but to his ?dear mind and
his squally clear sense of Presidential duty the
one predominant l?lea has been, What Is the
best thing for the service? Mr. McKinley, al?
ways a friend of the Civil Service law, Is now
even more Its friend. He merely wanted to
know what errors existed, and what were the
remedies necessary to be institutes!. He has
become satisfied as to the proper course to pur?
sue, and on or about the time Indicated above
this course will be adopted. Several of the of?
fices and places Included In the e!asstfi?Hl ser?
vice und'-r the operation of the prisent rules
are to he excluded.
The following may be accepted as agreed upon
now, and while tlu-re may be a slight modifica?
tion between this date and the day of promulga?
tion of the new order, there Is the best reason
for saying that all of these piares will be ln
Clttd?sd In the ex. mptlons, namely:
Firsts?The employes of the Government Print?
Second The deputy collectors and other minor
Internal revenue employes outside the Depart?
ment. This ha?l been virtually understood as
having previously been decided on. Secretary
Cage at an early day was assured that the ser?
vice would be Improved by omitting the internal
revenue clerks, deputies and gangers in the
States and Territori??? from the classified ser?
Third The sub -officials and employes of the
marshals' an?l Lilsirlct-Attorneys- offices.
l ?Mtbly the order will embrace, besides the
above, a number Of special employes in th?? de?
partments exempted by midnight ?>rders of the
Cleveland Administration. As stat???! before, the
probabilities ar? that the chiefs of division and
chiefs of bureaus and so forth will be released
from the exemptions. Th?? large inclusions, em
hradng some "f the best-paying places, which
were made in the last few months of Mr. Cleve?
land's Administration, were clearly Of a partisan
nature and n?>t in the line of Civil Service re?
form Restoring them cannot Injure the cause
Of reform. < >n the contrary, the rebuke admin?
ister?-1 to partisan Democracy by their rein?-lu
si"ii in the list Of appointive ?iflVes Will be nn
efficient fa?tor in the genuine reforms Instituted
by President McKinley.
Altogether this Statement of the Intentions of
the President, which is a broader statement than
any heretofore made, is extremely important. It
may truly be said f?>r it that It Is on?- of the most
Important authoritative statements yet made

They withdrew on the Intimation of the Reputili,

Democrats. It was recalled that this privilege
had been conceded to the party In power In 1890
and 1M?14, and the Democrats did not object to
The Republicans remained together until after
0 o'clock, devoting themselves assiduously to an
adjustment of the differences between the two
houses. Contrary to the usual practice, whl<_i
Is to regard the first meeting as Informal and
not Intended for serious business, they plunged
Into the work, and mad?? excellent progress.
The representatives of the Houee were found to
be excellently Informed <>n all th?- changes made,
and also to be so familiar with the reasons

This happy condition facilitated work to a re?

found to be, In the main, ready to conce i.?

The members of the conference refused abso?
lutely to give out the details of the proceedings,
having given a general pledge to this effect.
This understanding was r-ached because of
the conviction that any revelation of the rates
agreed on would add greatly to the work of the
conferree?? by bringing down upon them th*? re?

It Is understood that the agreem?-nts reached
as the conference proceeds will be considered as
tentative, and then on the last day they will be

order to prevent the action of the committee

this morning an.l had a long conference with
? President McKinley. Some of them urged htm

that the Bfw.lment In Congress was such that
It would be Ukstjr to ar.-use feeling and can*??
friction, which would ?leiay final action on

any measure providing For a Currency Comete?
?Ion at the present session. Th?? promise was

?futile. Aside fr?.m th?? difficulty ?>f ?/? mug a
! m>eaaure sudi as that proposed by ili- PreeMMt
1 nut of committee, the ?scheme would, if reported,
be debated al length, and probaM) be defeated.
"W.? ihink w.? ha?.? th.. \,,t.s in th.? Senate t?
