§ 82. Mr. HUNT
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether the salaries sanctioned by the Treasury for the new appointments in the Scotch Board of Agriculture are on the same basis, and of the same or similar amount, as those now paid to officials of the Board of Agriculture for similar work; and, if not, will he say why the same scale has not been adopted?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The salaries are similar, but are not identical, with the ex- 1498 ception of those of certain clerical grades common to the Civil Service.
