and wages havo Cory
much increased The
coat of living has also recently increased and these reasons at Iwnt suggest
why it is becoming more diflkult to fill the public service
The last report of the national civil service commission shows that in
the last year though they had more positions to fill they had 25000 leN
applicants than the year before The statistics show that taw resignatipna
and the declinations to take government positions on tho part of those
who hare Already passed the examinations are greater than ever before
The person Who has already passed an examination uses tIn high
murk as a credential for private employment and the bright young people
who come into tho service through the competitive system after n few
years of experience arc found by business men to be extremely valuable
persons and they tempt them out of nIl government srvlce
Again Ole lower grades of tho government service give relntlvoly bet
ter pay than the higher so that there is loss futuro advancement tempt
a man to stay in thc government service than there is in prlvnto omploy
ment Several prominent members of congress have suggested that the
salaries ought to be incnwsed and n number of eminent heads of depart
ments and experienced government olllcials believe that there ought to be I
more permanent heads of bureaus with large salaries thrown open to pro
In the first place onr largo government departments are remarkably
lacking in permanent heads with large experience Such positions could
be filled by competent persons only in case the salaries woro inade attrac
tive The postmaster general for example has suggested that there
should boa high grade permanent assistant postmaster general
I I think therefore the civil service system far from being reajxmsi
