Changes in force of subordinates Clarence B. Angle, who had been secretary of the Commission since March 1, 1884, tendered his resignation in September, 1900, owing to the impaired condition of his health, and the position made vacant by the acceptance of his resignation was filled by the promotion of John C. Birdseye, who in the year 1884 entered the service of the Commission in a subordinate clerical position as the result of a competitive examination, and who had been gradually promoted until he had reached the position of assistant secretary, which for a number of years he had filled with fidelity.
