ditloirs. there Is a ureat deal for Con
gress to do, and more than it can or
will do And. therefore, one of the Im
portant functions of the leaders Is in
the selection of the Issues to be pre
sented and argued out. and In that I
conceive that this organization -will
have its moat Important function
"Take, for Instance, the question of
banking and currency. I am speaking
to a commercial body, and I venture I
will encounter no denial when I make
the statement that there Is not any
thing In the whole range of national
legislation that more directly affects the
welfare of the poorest and less fortu

of a round financial banking and cur
"And there is another subject. We are
gathering generally even thing that Is
lying loose under the classified service
of the civil service law. But there are
some things that do not lie loose. Now
an order made In October putting fourth
iJass postmasters under the classified
civil service has attracted considerable
criticism I am not prepared to say that
the criticism has -not some foundation In
this- That under a succession of Repub
lican administrations, when there was
no restrictions as to how these post
masters should be selected. Republicans
hae been glien these offices. It is pos
sible that during the late upheaval the
definition of what a Republican Is has
changed, so that there Is a division now
among these postmasters into Republl
cans and Bull Moosers sufficient to say
that their being put under the protection
of a classified service moement is not
altogether solely In the Interest of one
"But It is true that they are gen
erally non-Democrats, and It Is nat
ural therefore, that Democrats coming
in with party spirit, should feel that
an order like that was not fair be
cause it classified for the benefit of
one side only I have been patient,
therefore, with the delay In adopting
my proposition that all local offices,
collectors, postmasters, surveyors, all
who play an part in the local admin
istration of the government, who are
now appointed by the President and
confirmed b the Senate, should ulti
mately hae their method of appoint
ment changed so they may be appoint
ed by the President, and then bj him
put In the classified service
"Now without breaking any confidence
of my successor I enture to think that
after two or three years those local, of
fices will have changed their political com
plexion to such an extent that they ma
be put then in the classified service with
out including an Injurious number of
Republicans, and that thus the swing cf
the pendulum may ultimately bring all
those local offices, and. Indeed, the chiefs
of bureaus and e en body, a is the Eng
lish system, within a permanent tenure,
except those who exercise guidance In
the selection of politics This Is. perhaps,
a radical change, but we have come quite
close to It now. TVe ha e & consular sj s

You know how It will break Into the busi
ness of the country to put a lot of mere
tyros Into that system. Now It Is not
protected by anything entirely under a
classified system, but by an executive or
der and an enabling law. It can be
changed into a spoils -jstem b revoking
an executive order. Now, jour Influence
will be needed to back up the incoming
President In preserving that system and
continuing It to be as useful as possible
and making a great deal more useful for
the benefit of the countrj. That Is a ery
important matter, although it does not

recognized, primarily, to do political

Is the only work In which they have

this also to the lighthouse and inter
