Excerpt: ...fifty per cent of the salary paid at the time of such removal; or, in case of death, the widow and children under sixteen years of age may be granted a sum not exceeding that aforesaid." Mr. Littauer. Have you any statistics of what that amounted to in the last three years? Colonel Bingham. Not so long as that. Last year we only had this organization of the force running, but it has been increasing a good deal. The first year it was about $1,700, and lust year about 3,000. Mr. Bingham.

Are your watchmen eligible to the benefits of that fund? Colonel Bingham. No, sir; not at present. That is what I want to arrange for. Mr. Bingham. How are your men appointed---by civil service? Colonel Bingham. Yes, sir; from the civil-service list. In order to improve our status I have had a special class established by the civil service so that everybody can not get on the list. We take particularly good men. Mr. Bingham. On page 156, in regard to night watchmen, your recommendation, 1 presume, was an increase to $840 instead of $780? Colonel Bingham. I recommended an increase to $70 a month, $840. but the Secretary cut it to $780. Mr. Bingham. And vou ask for one additional man at the Potomac Park? Colonel Bingham. Two--a day watchman and a night watchman. Mr. Taylor. That is not asked for in this estimate. Colonel Bingham. There is a night watchman on page 156; the other watchman is on page 155. Mr. Bingham.
