Think President Docs Not Pay
Sufficient Attention to Rec
ommendations. RELIES ON OWN JUDGMENT
In the Matter of Maklnp, Appoint
ments It Has Come to Be Under
stood That He Will Make
Hit Own Selections.
Washington. Some, of the senators
iinil representatives in congress have
mors than hinted i Prssidsnl Tan
that if he expects unswerving support
for ail the measures which ht recom
mended for enactmeat Into law he
OUghl to give more attention to UM
office-seeking demands of the law
makers, demands made on ths behali
of others, There are many Democrats
in congress who say that the presi
dent isi very much like President
Cleveland in the matter Of dispensing
patronage, Mr. Cleveland is dead,
and naturally nothing but good is
said of him, but there are Democratic
officials still in Washington wbossrved
here in the Cleveland times, and they
have sharp memories of office si eking
difficulties thnt they are ready to de
clare are Just like the difficulties
which the Hopubllcan representatives
ami senators are meeting to-day.
It is now an assured fnct that Presi
dent Tafl intends to be an absolute
law unto himself In the matter of fill
ing S'Mirt vacancies, nnd this does not
apply simply to vncnnt positions on
the bench, but to officers of the courts
and to prosecuting attorneys. The
president feels that his long experi
ence In law courts, and especially his
experience on the bench, ought to give
him at least ae clear an idea of the
fltnesp of men to serve the country as
is given others who never sat on a
bench and perhaps never practiced
Notable Cases In Point.
There have been several cases In
which the recommendation of senators
have run counter to the judgment of
the president nnd in tne main these
cases have had direct connection with
court appointments. In the case of
the Eastern district of Missouri where
there was a vacancy In the office of
the United States attorney, the presi
dent declined to act in anything like
the hurry that he was asked to act.
He went Into the pros and cons of the
matters diligently and sifted the facts
for and against the two candidates
most prominently mentioned, and he
did this Irrespective of the fact that
one of the candidates had the endorse
ment of the only Republican senator
from the state of Missouri and the
endorsement as well of the strong Re
publican organization rrf the city of
Democrats Shown Consideration.
The Democrats In congress, being in
the minority, of course do not expect
to get much patronage from the White
House, but as a matter of admitted
fact they have been shown a good deal
of consideration by the administra
tion in appointment matters. There
were Republicans who thought that
President Taft ought to have given
the supreme court vacancy to a mem
ber of the majority party. Instead of
this the president appointed Judge
Horace H. I.nrton of Tennessee, a for
mer confederate soldier and a lifelong
Democrat. When Judge Lurton's
name was reported favorably from the
senate committee to the whole senate
I he honor of making the report was
given to a Democratic senator, Mr.
Hiu-oii of Georgia.
Many Lawmakers Disgruntled.
Another "Orover Cleveland feature"
of the Taft administration Is to be
found in the addition to the presi
dent's message to congress December
5, in which he urgently recommended
I hat a law be passed requiring that
candidates In elections of members of
the house of representatives and com
raittees in charge of their campaign,
should make a return to the I nihil
states government of nil the expenses
that they incurred during the cam
palgn for election. This has been
taken to mean that the president
wants to secure purity of the ballot In
all federal elections, and it is in line
with what is said to he his determina
tion to appoint only fit men to office.
Trouble may come to Mr. Taft be
cause of bib refusal to listen to the
pleas of the senators and representa
tives to give preference to their candi
dates lor olllce. The disappointed ones
may geek to obstruct some of the leg
islation that the president desires to
Civil Service Investigation.
There is every indication that the
I'nited States senate will sanction the
resolution introduced by Senator Bo
rah of Idaho authorizing the investi
gation of the whole system of civil
service of the United States govern
ment. The senate has been brought
to an Investigating st:tle of mind aftSI
a good deal of pressure from outside,
and many trials and tribulations that
have met the senators thcinseh t's.
The Borah resolution is in the hands
of the senate committee mi ci il
Ice, of which Senator Cummins ol
Iowa is the chairman The resolution
has n majority In the committee fa
vorable to its provisions, and when it
comes tO the fioor of the senate with
nn affirmative report back of it there
seems to be little doubt that it will
past without much difficulty.
The changes that may come in the
method of promotions of minor fed
era Offlod holders as result of tin
senate Investigation are likely to be
of great service in bettering the con
dition of faithful employes of the gov
eminent whose merits have been
overlooked in Order that political fa
vorites. whose work may not liavp
been up to the Standard, BhOUld re
ceive promotion. It can he said that
regardless of party most of tht
senators of the United States haw
not been any too strongly attached to
the civil service as it related tO ap
pointmeiils, but when It comes to n
question of promotions under the civil
I service the senators are willing to ac
! qnieece In new rules
Spirit of Law Violated.
It has been snid before that It le
President Taft's desire that the spirit
of civil service shalV prevail In all
departments. Thousands upon thou
sands of men and women are appoint
I ed every year to minor offices under
the rules of the civil service, but when
they once secure their positions they
have found to their sorrow In nianv
Instances that merit seems to count
for little when the question of ad
vancement conies up.
Not long ago Senator William Alden
Smith of Michigan, a Republican, ad
dressed the senate In a hented speech
In the course of which he declared
that many of the bureau chiefs In the
departments of government were noth
ing more nor less than petty tyrants
who had In their hands the power of
promotion nnd who used It to advance
those whom they personally liked
while keeping back faithful men and
women who had worked hard but had
not sought to curry favor.
It must be borne In mind that the
senate investigation of the civil serv
ice system of the country will have
to do largely with the question of pro
motions. The law does not specifical
ly make provision for the advance
ment of the men and women from one
grade to another as a result of good
work. It has been taken for granted
that merit would prevail, but In this
thought little consideration has been
given to the frailties of human nature
as they show themselves in men who
for a brief period have been given au
thority. Bureau Chiefs to Blame.
Complaint Is made that sometimes
bureau chiefs will recommend for pro
motion a clerk who happens to belong
to the same lodge that he does or who
attends the same church with him, or
Is willing to show him favor because
their wives happen to be friends. In
some of the cases the promotion ol
a favorite works a hardship on a more
deserving one who is kept at his old
desk and at his old pay. In a sense
this is demoralizing and the senate
thinks that It should be stopped.
It may be that as a result of the In
vestlgatlon a law may be suggested
for adoption which will give old gov
ernment clerks a chance to retire on
pensions. Congress does not like the
prospect of a civil pension list, but il
realizes that If one should be author
Ized the government would save nion
ey and at the. same time Increase the
amount of dally work that is done
There are hundreds of worthy men
and women In the service who cannot
do a day's work, but who, because ol
their long and faithful service, are al
lowed to remain at their desks and
draw their pay. To turn them out
would In many cases mean suffering
and hardship and possibly the poor
house. This is a great problem and
one that has been troubling congress
President Becoming Earnest.
Members of both parties in Wash
ington say that the president has be
come more forcible In his intercourse
with the loaders of his party thnn he
wai during the debates on the tariff.
They Bay that when the tariff discus
sion was on In congress Mr. Taft made
up his mind to reverse the Roosevelt
method and to plead with the sena
tors and representatives rather than
to threaten them with the big stick.
It is also inVmuted that the president
has found that while "a soft answer
lurneth away wrath," a mild request
does not always bring an afflrmatl
answer. The belief is that the pr
ident holds that unless his party ca
rles out all his recommendations at
this session or makes definite ar
rangements and definite promises to
carry them all In the near future, his
party may lose control of the house
next November. This is one of the
chief reasons why the president is
bo anxious to know whether the lead
ers are going to stand true to their
pledges or are to comply with them
only In part.
Why does Great Britain buy It
oatmeal of us?
Certainly If seems like carrying
coals to Newcastle to speak oi export

year the Quaker Oats Company sends
hundreds of thousands of cases of
Quaker Oats to tit-eat Britain and
The reason Is simple; while the
English and Scotch have for centuries
eaten oatmeal In quantities and wHh
regularity that has made them the
