District Employes Above the Grade
of Laborer to Be Sworn.
The Commissioners esterday issued
an order that all empIocs of the District
government above the prade of la I orcr I e
required tc- take the oath of office. The
Commlssioneis bae thought for some time
that surh action would be beneficial to the
discipline or the .'enice.
There is no law requiring that clerks ami
messenger of the District gocrninent take
an oath. The Commissioners referred this
point to the attorney for the District, Mr.
S. T. Thomas, a few dajs ago, and Mr.
Thomas decides that such minor employes
of the Government are not 'civil ofricers"
in the sen.-e that the law implies in requir

Tne Commissioners decided to go ahead
with their new rule, however, as there is no
law against it, nt any rate.

In making up these goods I pledge my reputation that the work
manship shall be first-class, the fit satisfactory and the quality equal
to any line of woolens offered by other tailors at SIS and $20. Every
garment is made in my own shops and can be tried on as often as yon
like before being finished. Ask to see the linings and trimmings.
You take no chances, for I give full value or hand your money back.
I guarantee my work.
