Civil Service Employes
WASHINGTON, April 10. Taft. by
an executive order, has modified the
so-called gag rale on -civil service
employes which practically forbade a
petition to congress, except under
certain restricted conditions.
Tho new- order is i3sued, supersed
ing two on the same subject- by
Roosevelt and Taft, and permits
civil service employes to forward pe-
1 tions to congress or any committees.
i through the heads of their depart-
heads. The latter, as heretofore,
will be obliged to forward petitions
with any comment they think proper.
