House and Senate conferees on the tariff bill have made a partial con cession to the .civil service in adjust ing those features of the measure which relate to the collection of the income tax. It was learned unofficially today that the conferees have provided that the clerical force In Washington which Is concerned with the collection of the In come tax and the administration of the Income -tax will be under the civil service. The force In the field, which will con sist of a small army of deputies, agents, and the like, will not be under civil service, but will be political appointees. If the conference report stands as It la now understood to be. The change made by the conferees with respect to the clerical force In Washington Is to some extent a gain for the application tf the civil service principle. The bill as It passed the Senate provided for the appointment on the spoils basis of all the employes con cerned In the administration of the In come tax measure. If the agreement of the conferees, as It Is now unofficially said to be, is adopted by Congress, it will preserve the clerical force In the Bureau of In ternal Revenue from the inroads of the spoils system. The National Civil Service Reform League and other organisations inter ested In the promotion oof the civil service Idea have protested strongly against reversion to the spoils method In the selection of employes to admin ister the Income tax law. .They have not been able, however, to have much effect, owing to the hunger .of Demo cratic politicians for Jobs.
