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

to make appointment, in the civil serv
ice for Ave years as a move toward put

Norrls termed 'the political pie counter."

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
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
"There 1. a great lobby in Washing
ton engaged in the work of endeavoring
to Induce Congress to pass a civil service
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
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
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

sentative Johnson, "will expire July 1,

mlttee has no desire to limit the age
to any particular number of years. I
am willing: for any age limit to be

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
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
"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
"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
"The plowman homeward plods his weary
And leaves the world to darkness and to
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.
