Tara to Merit Bale. v. Washington, Dec 8.-An appeal to the party in power o turn its back on the ' "Spoils system" and adopt a thorough-going application 'of the merit principle was made by Richard H. Dana, Boston," presi dent of the National Civic Service Reform league, in an address last alght before the annual convention "of the league. ;. "Let me ask the administration," laid he, "whether there is any oth er issue it could now take np which would so appeal to the public at .large and so rebound to, its own credit in the history of the country, experience has shown that any fla grant use of patronage always loses votes for the party responsible." Mr. Dana said that counting em ployes of states, counties, munici palities and townships, the army of civilian public employes in thof united States numbers above 3,000,- WO, or one for every senen fam ilies. The payroll ot this army is about $3,000,000,000 a year, of which $600,000,000 is spent by the naeral government . ', Big Saving Possible. ." One-quarter ot the total of sal Ties paid, Mr. Dana charged, is wasted in supernumerary employes, Aaaecessary duplication of work. .adequate management and anti UMed methods. v' "Could waste be stopped in the sblic service," he 'said, "there would be a saving to our over'-taxed mntry of 1700.000.000 a vear ."The Civil Service Reform league imposed two methods of'eliminat I this waste, Mr. Dana said. First I ay turning efficiency and employ ' .t experts Into the various de partments to renlace the inefficient. ataadardise work, modernise meth and put promotion on a basis J merit instead of seniority or po- ,aueai pull. Second, by requiring aat officials ia tip higher grades, sponsible for tbe management of we lower grades, be selected on ac- wwai or fitness. -- . Mr. Dana appealed to the admin "anon, to congress and the gen- ! Public to support this pro- i"We as a country, have let mat drift on far ton Innr." 1 he P "We are not only wasting patrimony, but are continuing 4 nabita which are becoming ' nnnly fixed.'
