It is deemed desirable that competitive examinations shall be held for testing the qualification of applicants for appointment in a clerical capacity in the office of the Recorder of Deeds at Washington, such examinations to be confined to actual bona fide residents of the District of Columbia.

The United States Civil Service Commission is therefore directed to render such assistance as may be practicable to the Recorder for the establishment and maintenance of a system of examinations to precede such appointments, to be open to all citizens of the District of Columbia qualified in respect to age, character, education, and experience; and for that purpose to conduct examinations upon the request of the Recorder under such regulations as may be agreed upon by him and the Commission.
