I am informed that in the case of Messrs. King and Klotz the maximum salary is $2,400, and they are being allowed $150 in excess of the maximum. Mr. King is connected
with the new observatory and has an important addition to his labours which are of a very responsible and technical character. Mr. IClotz has been employed in connection with the Alaskan boundary, and the hon. Minister of the Interior thinks his services should be recognized accordingly.
