establishing pensions, and snyn it is fori
Congress to decide whether a pension
system shall be upon n contributory I
basis or not.
'I h. statement quotes the Democratic i
plank as follows:
"'The law' pertnlnlitg to the civil!
service should be honestly and rigidly!
enforced to the end that merit ami
ability shall be the Mnndard of up-,
polntment and promotion, rather than
service rendered to a political parly;]
and we favor a reorganization of the i
civil service, with adequate conipensa- |

work performed for all offielers and ,
employes of the benefits of the pro?
visions of thle employers' liability law; 1
w e also recognize lib Ir right of direct

'This declaration," says the com?
mittee, "is a distinct gain for the civ 1
service employes in that it declares
that merit and ability shall be the
standard of appointment and protno
tlon, If all promotions In tiie olvii
