Executive Order 1321

On January 1, 1911, for the purposes of economy, certain storehouses of the Panama Railroad Co. were consolidated with the storehouse operated by the quartermaster's department of the Isthmian Canal Commission, and all the employees of the Panama Railroad Co. whose services were needed in the consolidated storehouse were transferred to the Isthmian Canal Commission. Among the employees so transferred are Francis E. Huck, jr., Reuben B. Luker, Edmund Sale, Peter Stuart, and Carl M. Williams, who have been employed as clerks by the Panama Railroad Co. for a number of years, during which time they have rendered satisfactory service, and since January 1, 1911, have been temporarily employed under the civil-service rules.

These persons may be retained and become a part of the classified force of the Isthmian Canal Commission under section 6 of civil-service Rule II, but with the same restrictions applicable to clerks appointed on the Isthmus without a competitive status, who in order to be transferred must pass a competitive examination and be reached for certification. The classification of these persons is made upon the recommendation of the Isthmian Canal Commission, with the concurrence of the Secretary of War and the Civil Service Commission.
