Following the aubmiaalon of the minor Ity report on this bill, as narrated In The 2EJ? y"*r**y> members of the House i*IUsd to the support of the civil serv ice rules, and, actuated by humanitarian motive, entirely, assailed Representative Johnson 8 idea of oturtlng the older clerk., and characterized the proportion to make appointment, in the civil serv ice for Ave years as a move toward put ting the service on what RepreMntative Norrls termed 'the political pie counter." It was shown yesterday by a member of the appropriations committee that the democratic idea of hAvIn^ all civil ?erv *W*>,ntl?ents cease July 1, 1914. would open the doors to a flood of demo cratic appointments, succeeding the chance In administration for which democrat, are working. Aims to Protect Treasury. Representative Johnson made a broad appeal for hi. Idea, but practically ad mitted that ho did not expect the pro vision to pass, saying that the pro vision wa. Inserted merely to bring the old-age matter to the attention of Con gress. Representative Johnson introduced his remarks by explaining that in his opinion a policy of retrenchment is necessary to save the country from a ?tate of overwhelming expenditures in the future. He assumed the position, for himself and th6 appropriations com mlttee, of a public trustee, personally responsible for the use of public funds. "Each one of us." he said, "ought to be honest enough with himself and honest enough with the country to set up in hi. own bosom a court of con science, before which questions of the expenditure of public money could be tried. * "The newspapers have indicated that the committee has cut remorselessly and mercilessly the salaries of government employee. There has been practically no cutting of salaries. 1 believe that less than a dozen salaries have been cut in this bill out of the 15,000 people that are i provided for." Existence of Lobby Denied. After Introducing the committee's re port on the bill, Representative Johnson said: "There 1. a great lobby in Washing ton engaged in the work of endeavoring to Induce Congress to pass a civil service bill." Representative Ham ill of New Jersey, who has introduced a civil service pen sion bill, said he had not heard of such a lobby. Representative Johnson said he had heard of a thirty-thousand-dollar fund raised for the purpose of lobbying the civil service pension fund. Repre sentative Hamill disputed this. Mr. Johnson then defended the provi sion /or five-year appointment, in the civil service. He said: "We have incorporated in this bill a provision that requires people who are appointed to the government service to be appointed for a specified period of time, and they may be reappointed with out further examination. But as long as people are appointed for life and there is a propaganda going on that they are treated like slaves and that the govern ment is acting as if it were a govern ment of barbarous people in not provid ing for them?I think it would be very well to change our method of appointing people and appoint them for a specified period of time. Let them know that at the end of their term their reappoint ment depends upon their service, and I think we would hear less of bad treat ment." Mr. Hill Takes Issue. Representative Hill, a republican, from Connecticut, asked Representative John son why the rule had been proposed to apply exclusively to government employes within the District of Columbia. Answer ing this, Representative Johnson said: "The government employe, outside the District of Columbia have not been so persistent in their demand for a civil service pension." Repreaentative Hill took Issue with Mr. Johnson. He said in his reply that he remembered that in 1865, just before President Cleveland went out of office "with the departments filled with gentle men of his political faith, they were swept In by thousands under the civil service law, without examination, making them employe, for life or during good be havior." Continuing, Representative Hill said: "Now this is directly and radically the opposite to that action. You .ay that every one of these republican employes who have been appointed during the past sixteen year, .hall end their term, in July or October of thl. year. I. not that rather a drastic proposition, in view of the precedent your own President set for you?" "The term of olBce," explained Repre sentative Johnson, "will expire July 1, 1014. They can be reappointed," he ex plained further, "without reexamina tion." "If they are lea. than alxty-flve year, old," said Representative Hill "So far a. I am concerned, I am per fectly willing to have the alxty-flve year age limit stricken out. The com ROW TO SET RIB OF FLIES flFlies carry disease.

I am willing: for any age limit to be i stricken out and let a man be reap pointed until he is a hundred years old if he Is still efficient. This is to bring it to the attention of the House." "Well." said Representative Hill. "I think the gentleman has succeeded in that." Representative Willis of Ohio said that the flve-year appointment clause would undermine the civil service idea entirely, but Mr. Johnson said he thought otherwise. Representative Levy of New York asked the plain question: "Does the gentleman seriously mean to throw these people on the world at the age of sixty-five years, with no provision for them whatever, and to do that in this age of advancement, when every business corporation and firm is providing for its employes in some way?" To this question, on which seems to hang the sentiment of the House, Representative Johnson made an ex tended reply. He prefaced it by say ing he had the kindliest feelings to ward the government clerks. His ar 8ument was based on his opinion that ' "favors" are allowed clerks in the government service In Washington, there is no argument that can be made in their behalf that cannot be made for other employes of the government." All Will Seek Pensions. He mentioned the men of the life-sav ing service, and asked what Congress would do when these men knock at the doors of Congress and ask for pensions or similar treatment. "When you have provided for them in their old age because of the splendid and meritorious services they perform, then will come another powerful and worthy class?the railroad postal clerks." Following these men, said Representa tive Johnson, all sorts of government employes will plead for pensions. Rep resentative Mann of Illinois mentioned that a bill Is now pending In the House to pay $50 a month to every government employe injured in the service. He also said the member in charge of the bill ex pected to have the bill passed. Repre sentative Johnson's argument described the privations of rural letter carriers. He did not deny that men were wearing out their lives for the government, but seem ed to think the government should not be called on to recompense the employes when their useful days had ended. It ^as an argument In favor of expansions, according to Representative Hamlll, who said to him: JTo Fear of Pie Counter. "You have described what might pos sibly happen If we open the door to pensions, but do you see anything so terrible in the picture which you have drawn, considering that this govern ment of ours never stops to consider the cost of doing what is right?" Representative Norris of Nebraska rfsked Mr. Johnson if he did not be lieve the flve-year-appointment clause would put the civil service on the political pie counter. Mr. Johnson said he did not believe so. Mr. Norris warned" him that the five-year-ap pointment provision, if enacted, would bring about a greater evil than the pension system could possibly create. Representative Bowman of Pennsyl vania suggested that it would be pos sible for government employes to es tablish a pension fund of their own, Representative Johnson said he saw no possible objection in that. In his final argument Mr. Johnson warned the House, against opening the doors of 'the pension system. He also said that there are people who work longer and harder than government employes, and that once the pension system Is started every one In the country will find a reason for asking for a pension. Terms Pension Plan Socialism. He also said this much about President Taft: "The President said recently thst th? great question to be solved in the future was socialism. I do not know whether he used the word 'socialism' in its 'true sense or as a synonym for anarchy. He evidently did not think of it in its true sense, because if the newspapers print the truth, the President and all his cabi net are behind this scheme to start a civil pension list in Washington. Well, gentlemen, if that is not socialism I do not know what it is." He concluded his argument with two lines from Gray's Elegy in a Country Churchyard: "The plowman homeward plods his weary way And leaves the world to darkness and to me." This was to introduce his parting re mark that if government clerks in Wash ington are to be pensioned and favored, the whole work-day world would have a logical reason for asking for annuities at some time or another. f? * I ANACOSTIA. | That St. Teresa's Branch, No. 581, Cath olic Knights of America, will take an ac tive part in the approaching ceremonies attendant upon the unveiling of the Co lumbus statue in front of the Union sta tion was evidenced at a meeting last evening In the basement hall of St. Teresa's Church, 13th and V streets, with pres.dent John F.
