The president made the counter charge that his accusers on the floor of the house were telling "untruths," ond declared that he deeply regretted the fnlluro of congress to pass legislation which practically would destroy the "spoils system." "Criticism has been made of this order on the ground that the motive was po lltlcal," said the president. "Nothing could be further from the truth. The order was made before the election and In the Interest of efficient public service. I have several times requested congress to give me authority to put first, second and third claas postmasters, and nil other local officers. Including Internal revenue officers, customs officers, United States marshals and tho local, agents of the other departments under the classlflca. tlon of the civil service law by taking away the necessity of confirming such appointments by the senate. I deeply re gret the failure of congress to follow these recommendations.

The president's advice to congress was contained In his third messngo or the year, sent In today. It was devoted largely to a review of tho accomplish ments of several government depart ments not touched upon In previous mes sages nnd to rccommendntlons for legis lation. The president advocated: Legislation which would permit mem bers of the cabinet to ait in either house of congress, with the right to enter Into debnte and answer (juration, but without a vote. The adoption of the postmaster gen eral's plan for a 'readjustment of com pensation to railways carrying malls, es pecially In view of the conditions which wlll,exist under the parcels post law.

An act of congress which would' legalize a cdurt authorized to review decisions cn the pure food law nuch ns are now made by the Jtemaen board'', in this connection tho president BP proved the creation ot the Itemsen board by former President Itoosevelt, but said tho time had come for congress' to rco ogntze the, necessity for "a tribunal of appeal ' hr pure food cases. "While we me struggling to suppreis an evil ot great proportions llko that of Impure food," safcf the- president, "wo hiust prdvlde the naahtnpry"ln the law Itself to prevent Its becoming; an Instrument of oppression, and wo ought to enable those whose busi ness is threatened with annihilation to have some tribunal and some form of ap peal lit which they have a complete day 1u court."'
