After the twentieth year of Kangxi(1681) Emperor in the Qing Dynasty, the imperial court appointed local civilians ranking under seventh as tellers to be in charge of the stored grain on a large scale. Before the middle of Yongzheng Years,the warehouse officials were paid Fengyin(salary) and Fengmi(rice) by the Ministry of Revenue in feudal China according to the level of officials in Beijing. Fengmi was abolished later. The fifth-ranked central officials in Shengjing area put forward the policy of "Daji" and adopted the way of the "Kaoyu"(judging a person by his moral behaviors) to evaluate warehouse officials, and in the period of the Yongzheng the warehouse official could be an official of Libu(the Ministry of Official Personnel Affairs in feudal China), or a Xiaojinguan( a junior central official) for bi-monthly. And by the period of the Qianlong, the warehouse official can be promoted into the Libu, Shengjing's Wu Zhi Xiao Qi Xiao, Shengjing's Master for singular month. And then Shengjing's officials introduced the candidates to fill vacancy after the promotion of the Shengjing's warehouse officer.
