already begun to carry into effect his
policy of dispensing with the services of
all incompetent clerks in his department,
or those appointed purely for political
reasons. Under the direction of Chief
Clerk Wardle, the individual record of
the clerical force of the census office is
being thoroughly examined, and all the
clerks found to be deficient will be dis
missed. It is Secretary Smith's belief
that the work of the census should be
completed by the end of the calendar
year without asking on additional appro
priation from Congress, but to do this
he is convinced there must be not only
economy in expenditures, but each em
ploye must do good and efficient work.
It is understood, also, the clerical force
of the general land office will soon un
dergo the process of renovation, after
which some attention will be given the
pension and other bureaus, with a view
of putting them on a strictly business
care "cut loose in violation ot the rules."
