LENROOT PROPOSES SALARY COMMITTEE Suggests New Plan' of Meeting Question of Better Pay for U. S. Workers. Creation of a new "committee on salaries,' with exclusive jurisdiction over Increases and reductions in the I salaries of officers and employes of the Federal Government, was pro posed in a resolution. Introduced In the House today by Congressman Lenroot, of Wisconsin, a JteeuMJcsa f member o'f tbVCoramlttee on Rules.; The Lenroot resolution suggest new method of meeting the question of better pay for the employes of the United States Government. Salary in creases are now made In a round about manner, and eleven House com mittees have more or less to do with the salary question. Sdarlea Committee. Mr. Lenroot's plan contemplates, that all legislation relating to Government salaries shall be under the Jurisdiction of one big committee, say of twenty members, which shall undertake what ever revision may be needed by the salary scale. The! Wisconsin! member, who is a close student of the rules and practices of the lower branch of Con gress. believes that herein lies a, solu tlon of the long-standing controversy over Government salaries. Most salary changes are now made by the Committee on Appropriations, which attempts to change existing law In the annual appropriation bills. If a point of order Is made against any proposed: change it is eliminated automatically. A cse In point was the Ralney point of order against the salary Increases for District of Columbia employes carried in the District bill two weeks ago. Would Meet Situation. Congressman Lenroot says that, al though the House seems to have over looked the fact, matters affecting gov. ernment salaries, retrenchment, econ omy and accountability of public of ficers and similar questions properly belong to the several committee on expenditures in the various depart ments, while the Dlstrlce Committee has Jurisdiction over District salaries. These commltteeshave not attempted a salary revision, 'and practically all the changes made In recent years have been accomplished by riders on appropriation bills. A large committee on salaries, re lieving the Appropriations Committee of much work and proceeding to the salary problem in an ordsrly and sys tematic manner, would meet the pres ent unsatisfactory situation, in the opinion of Congressman Lenroot.

I have asked him for the names of the individuals giving Information constituting the leak and the names of those speculators profiting by such alleged leak.

After denlng the accusa tion Senator Stone said: "Things have occurred which should not be possible. Secrets have found their way out ot the State Department. The things I refer to do not alone concern the stock markets: they con cern the honor ot the nation. I fear the betrayal of public confi dence is due to the present civil ser vice system. I would have most trusted men In those .positions regardless of their civil service examinations." Doesnt Care About Street. Referring further to the Wall Street affair. Stone said: 'I do not care what effect the Presi dent's peace note had upon Wall Street. 'I am deeply concerned, though, to know that no public official is con cerned In It I hope we have reached the time when the Government at Washington cah say what it pleases to- foreign powers and -to Congress without m '1 ;i r tv-rfii A3i$sui . .
