Executive Order 631
As it appears from an investigation by the Treasury Department that it is not possible to arrange the work in the customs service at Boston so that any portion of the laborers' force may be wholly employed in either classified or unclassified duties, it is ordered, in accordance with the recommendation of the Treasury Department, that the 33 laborers constituting the laborers' force of the collector's office be classified with their positions and be subject to the civil-service rules.
Whenever similar conditions are found to exist in any portion of the service the laborers therein may be similarly classified by the head of the Department, with the approval of the Civil Service Commission.
