The expression ' increasing the organization ' would convey that the number of clerks has been increased, but as the bon. gentleman knows there is only one additional clerk. It is not to be expected that a number of meritorious young men are always to stay at the same salary. Surely if the minister sees that some of these young men who have made excellent clerks are at small salaries for a number of years he ought be able to promote them.
