To date, the President aald. the Com
mission has cost the people about 10,

than a few reforms It has suggested
changes that will save $1,000,000 a year.
Taft Weald Drop Noa-Workers.
In many ways, the President in
formed Congress, a decrease in the cost
of Government might be assured. There
Is need, he said, of reorganization of
the Government departments, a consoli
dation and a weeding out of bureaus
that overlap in their work: scores of
"local offices" throughout the country
should be abolished, and hundreds of
political appointees who do but little
work should be taken off the payroll.
The Treasury Department. Mr. Taft
showed, looked after the Nation's fi
nances and the life-saving service.
The Commission, he said, had recom
mended the abolition of the Revenue
Cutter Service, which would mean a
saving of $1,000,000 a year.
The President urged the adoption of
the "budget system." which would
bring before Congress, the press and
the people of the country not only the
proposed expenditures of the Govern
ment, but Its revenues.
"The United States Is the only great
Nation whose Government is operated
without a budget," he said.
Later, the President declares, he in
tends to send to Congress a plan for
. i n a - alvll aervlce emnloves
on pensions which will safeguard the
Government interest and yet provide
for their old age.
