Thrift Among Tlica Increases Coder
Civil Service Bales.
One of the most satisfactory results
of the establishment of the civil serv
ice law aad regulations here, according
to an old officer of the government,
has been the increasing unpopularity
of the borrowing habit among clerks,
writes the Washington correspondent
of the New York Times. The uncer
tainty- of tenure of office under the
spoils system tended to carelessness
in the use of money, and carelessness
brought on the necessity for anticipat
ing pay by borrowing, sometimes from
persons of small capital who demand
ed extortionate interest for their
loans. Since efficiency has come to
be the condition of retention in office
and not political influence, thrift has
increased, and hundreds of clerks who
were once in the habit of borrowing
from month to month are now saving
money to pay for homes purchased on
the instalment plan, and in such in
stalments that many years are given
in which to clear off the incumbrance
acquired with the property. The de
partment money lender as he used to
be has almost disappeared, and it is
asserted that there are no longer ex
members of congress here who derive
more money as interest than they ob
tained in a year as members of the
house. This class of lender was the
most dreaded and respected, for when
he operated be learned to exercise his
political influence in a cruel and wan
