he himself would take the bill to the
members who could do the most ef
fective work In obtaining Its passage
in "the . House. The Speaker was -asked
If he had considered any of the sev
eral plans proposed In bills which have
been Introduced In the last two sessions.
The question was not answered, as the
Speaker was launched on another phase
of the subject.' He did not believe there
was any possibility that Congress would
consider the question at the session
which convenes next month.
Mr. Clark Is not In sympathy with long
tenure for government clerks, Jn so far
as he believes that long service for the
government nips In the bud many prom
ising careers. He believes, young men
particularly should stay In the service
only as long as they would bo benefitted
by the educational advantages of the
country, after which point-they should
return to their homes and strike out for
themselves. Moreover, he believes that
the government service as now consti
tuted Is top heavy and rotten with dead
timber, and that the only humane way to
deal with the situation In the Interests of
efficiency Is through a compulsory con
tributory pension plan.
Fewer Men, More Pay.
"But w hat I cannot understand," he re
marked at one point, "is why some of
these clerks are not willing to do a little
more work. For Instance, If they are re
quired to add a half hour's work to their
regular schedule because of some unusual
condition, a terrible howl goes up. Now,
take for Instance one department Say
we have 4.000 .clerks In one department
Why should they be unwilling to do a lit
tle more work, have the force cut down
say. to 3,500, and receive higher pay?'
It was suggested to the Speaker mat
the trouble was not that too many clerks
are employed so much as that In many
departments compensation Is not com
mensurate with the service performed;
that Intelligent readjustment of salaries
would solve many problems of extrava
gance. Mr. lark Indicated that he xe-
Ueved this to be the case. He also
acquiesced In the suggestion that the
work of readjustment would oest De
accomplished following a study of esch
department by a competent authority on
business economy.
The Sneaker who. following his de
termined preconventlon fight for the
Democratic nomination, and the weari
some work In connection with the duties
of the Speakership, launched Immedi
ately into the campaign in support of
Gov Wilson, was In excellent spirits ana
looked the part when he said, "I never
felt better In my life." He appeared
quite as refreshed as though he had
spent the last two montns resting in-
stead of making 115 speeches in all parts
of the country There was no evidence
In anj thing he said of the keen disap
pointment he felt at the time or nis
defeat In Baltimore.
Optimistic of I"nt ore.
Mr Clark was decidedly optimistic
about the future of his party. -He favors
an extra session to revise the tariff In
conformity with Democratic pledges.
Asked whether he favored a schedule
bv schedule revision In preference to
blanket revision of the tariff, Mr. Clark
believed the Democrats of the House
will decide upon the former, he himself
indicating no decided preference.
"I am here before the opening of Con
gress to help get work ready, for there
is not enough time at a short session to
transact the necessary business prop-
errj. he said '
"In the language of Old Casper touch

Democrats will so ue it that nobody
will feel moved to propound to us the
question which little Peterkln asked his
Uncle Casper, "But what good came of it

victory will determine the length of
our lease of power We made certain
definite promises In order to win We
ought to carry them out religiously 1
h..ve no doubt that we will keep faith

favor of an extraordinary session of

possible after the inauguration.
revise the tariff and to do such other
things as appear meet and proper
"The countrv has a right to know what
we Intend to do It is the uncertainty
that hurt. But after all Is said and
done, whether we will have an extra
ordinary session and when depends en
tirely on President-elect Wilson's Idea as
to the necessity and desirab'llty thereof.
"In traveling through half the States
of the Union I have Inquired as to the
condition of business and have found
it brisk in every line everywhere Of
course, here and there is found some
incorrigible pessimist who. assuming the
rolo of Cassandra, predicts hard times,
but nobody pays any attention to the
croakers except to laugh at them The
crop of 1911 is one of the greatest ever
produced, especially the com crop, and
agricultural prosperity lies at the root
of all prosperity. Factories are behind
with orders and running overtime For
Instance. Saturday before the election I
was talking to one of my constituents
who manages a great manufacturing
plant and asked him how many men he
was using He replied: 'About 1.200. We
could use 1.000 more If we could get the
steel and other materials we need.'
That's a sample of many conversations.
Such conditions Indicate continued and
Increasing prosperity. Calamity howlers
will not be able to precipitate a panic
