Mr. HOWE:

This question involves names and records of over 5,000 employees in the Department of Marine. It would be necessary to search the records for the last thirty or thirty-five years to ascertain who recommended these employees. This would be a practically impossible task, one which certainly could not be completed for presentation at this session, and probably not at the next.

Question dropped.
