Washington. D. C, Oct. lOtli, 1573.
It is a recognized defect ia cur Constitutional
foundatica that more consideration was not ac
corded the Civil Service an oversell rcadilj
accounted fur, and to Lave teen expected in the
eturdj builders Mho laid tbe corner etone and
reared the bare walls of this vast governmental
structure. The battle clouds Lad not yet been
lifted from victorious engagements, in which the
gallant Armj and Nary Lad eecured cur inde
pendence, when the Constitution wa9 framed,
and it was natural that the fostering of both
arms of the service to whom was intrusted the
trotcction cf the infant nation should receive
first consideration. It was a lamentable mistake
that Civil Service did cot receive, if not equal
attention, at least sufficient to Lave established
its individuality. What a mighty lever would
Lave been enatched from the hordes of politicians
who stood even then ready to use it to strengthen
party or sustain individuals in office.
As years Lave patsed, and our first centennial
birthday Las come and gone, the wise and good
have seen the evil effects of the illegitimate use
made of Government patronage, arising from this
neglect of the Revolutionary lathern to appreciate
the Civil Service, who, if they did not devise an
original system, should have adopted the one
already in use in the mother country. States
men have tried in vain to engraft upon our laws
such measures as would institute a new order of
things. That seems impossible, for whatever
party is in power demands all the patronage;
each dismissing the other's employes as soon as
tbe oath of office has been uttered. Though hun
gry politicians are never known to give up the
strife for office, there can be no more unsatis
factory life than that of a Government clerk in
this country. No law, and scarcely a President,
through which he can be assured of his position
from day to day; and no pension in case of acci
dent, or in the certainty of old age, as the Eng
lish Government wisely gives. From time to
time Presidential campaigns Lave opened with
the cry of Civil Service Reform," but they are
all farces in the very nature of things; the most
grievous farce of that nature was in the eecond
election of President Grant.
Yet despite this unhappy and unprotected state
of things in the Civil Service, hope arises that a
wholesome reform will in time be seen, simply
because in one Bureau, or rather section of the
Po8tofBco Department, a complete and satisfactory
system of Civil Servico is in successful operation.
This is the railway mail service, and the whole
is the result of the earnest, masterful work of
two or three men who, by happy accident, were
appointed the heads of this section, and through
whose energy and ability a perfect network of
well-organized po6t routes have been not only
established, but the postal clerk is tho only Gov
ernment employe that knows he will receive ac
cording to his deserts.
In 1864 Col. George II. Armstrong originated
the scheme of attaching " postal cars'' to rail
way trains, in which car a miniature post office
was placed in tbe hands of a clerk. For several
years tho scheme Becmcd impractical; but when
it was taken hold of by Gen. George E. Bangs,
who succeeded Col. Armstrong, it seemed to re
ceive new life. Mr. Bangs put into practice the
then popular campaign cry of " Civil Service,"
and that is pre-eminently the cause of the success
of the hazardous experiment of a semi-union of
Governmental and railroad interests. Mr. Bangs
had a peculiar faculty of selecting to put in re
sponsible positions men adapted for the special
duty required, and the patience to study the char
acter of even the most remote clerk whose action
was brought before him officially. He made a
satisfactory illustration of Civil Service, so that
though the most influential politician could
secure the appointment of a man, no one could
advance him beyond others, unless his personal
claims entitled him to consideration greater than
those who had heen longer In office. This is one
item of Civil Service reform. The first con
sideration, however, is beyond the reach of any
as yet devised theory i. e. , that none shall enter
the service save such as are by education and
morals entitled to such position. That is the
stone that the first builders left out of our State,
and which the statesman who introduces it suc
cessfully now will be called great. Mr. Bangs,
it will be remembered, made glad the heart of
the commercial world by the celebrated " fast
mail." It was only in operation long enough to
prove its success, when the Government, through
economical motives, withdrew its approval.
When it is again required, which is but a ques
tion of time, it cannot be regarded as an ex
periment. Hon. Theo. N. Vail is now General
Superintendent, -having succeeded Mr. Bangs.
He was for years associated with Mr. Bangs in
his office, and he not only understands the original
workings of the scheme, but has made important
developments and introduced desimble changes,
proving not only his ability, bat his untiring
There are nine divisions of routes, and an As
sistant Superintendent has charge of each divis
ion, reporting, of course, to the General Super
intendent. The systematic workings of this im
mense Bureau challenges the admiration of the
worjd. There are near three thousand employes,
and their hours and routes fit each to the other
like the cogs in an intricate piece of machinery.
Tho clerks are probably tho hardest worked of
any recipients of Government favors if it be a
favor to labor from eight to twelve hours for such
pay as can be secured by any first-class dry goods
clerk, and at the same time be exposed to daily
railroad travel. This danger, from statistics
6hown, exists more in the mind than in reality,
for very few have been so unfortunate as to
suffer from such accideut. It may have been this
very danger that has originated a " Mutual Re
lief Association," which has now a membership
of sixteen hundred, and has, since its organiza
tion of a very few years, distributed $30,000 to
the families of deceased members. The exposure
to a common peril seems to call forth a feeling of
brotherhood. This Association anticipates the
neglect of Government in the matter of pensions
for civil service, or at least docs in a measure.
t matters not how a clerk may be exposed by
and or water in the performance of his dutv;
should death even be the result, no notice or care
is ivcn by the Government : only another man
is put in his place. Therefore, as a mutual pro- '
tcction, these clerks, out of their inconsiderable ! liPJiOM CALnnN
cftft.., r - ; E. S. CTNIIA PROPRIETOR
establish a sort of pension ciace on their own j
through frce ct habit, we demand with our
breakfast; and I fear arc often indignant if any
acciientcr d-. lay deprives us of the latest intel
ligence. Yet n;t a letter cr a rapcr reaches us
from a distant city that is not due o the prompt
cess and care cf the Postal Service. By 4 o'clock
in the morning a clerk must be at his post in the
railway car, sorting and depositing ia pigeon
Loles the tons of par era and letters so as to be
ready for tie first stopping of the car?, where
they have to throw out cot letters and papers,
but each letter and each pap-er designed for that
station; so that all the matter has to be carefully
run over before starting, requiring generally
about three hours. Which work over, the men
are ready for the ten minutes allowed for
breakfast." Then they stand delivering and re
ceiving mail until the end of their run, which is
sometimes full twelve hours, and does reach six
teen, though often cot six. The stooping for
mail, the standing, and the continual jostling of
the car is a great drain on the physical man, and
often develops disease of organic and nervous
types. A week cn" end a week cfT' is the
thing coveted ly these clerks, but on very few
routes can this le drc. The handling of many
tons of mail matter ar.d the loss of rest do not
compare with tic mental demand. Every posi
offlee in the State, not only its exact situation,
but by what route, sail or boat can be reached
quickest, is an immense burden to the mind; all
the heavier because the facts are uninteresting.
It requires something of the calibre of a light
ning calculator" to be an expert ia this business.
It is marvelous to investigate the record and dis
cover how few mistakes are made. They work
apparently with automatic skill, so rapid and so
true. " The whole railway mail service seems to
think," said a gentleman who Lad looked into
the perfect licking of the system. It does in
deed, and what quickens the thinking faculties is
the fact that each employe through whose Lands
a document passes is required to know that it
was safely deposited by Litn at the required
point, and each neglect or oversight of duty in
this regard is noted, and if the number is large
is apt to endanger the man's dismissal. During
the last year Superintendent Vail has required all
connected with his department to adopt a
uniform. This is of Llue cloth and brass but
tons; on the buttons the letters " P. O. D."
This is another step in the right direction, to
make the service distinctive, and it is to be hoped
that other heads of departments will follow his
Having examined several reports from As
sistant Superintendents, I will select the Second
Division, Superintendent Jackson of New York
City, to illustrate by one section the perfect
working and the immense amount accomplished
by the railway mail service. In this division
there are 149 railroad routes, 11,205 miles of
railway and steamboat service, and 10,175 miles
of Etagc service. There are in use 321 postal
cars; 5S4 clerks, and 408 of these are on duty
daily. The average amount of mail matter dis
tributed daily by each clerk is 4,732 letters,
1,301 papers, and an average of one error dis
covered in every 2,202 letters bandied
T 3 number of local agents in this division is
3G. They transfer the several mails to other
routes. Number of letters distributed in the
year, 181,522,080; number of papers, 110,190,
400. Registered packages handled, 1,0C0,403
Promotions during the year, 55. They are ex
amined by the throwing of cards correctly into
cases, each card calling for a certain postoflice a
very original and well-conceived idea. It is
called "Case hxamination." The number of
cards handled during the year (just closed) is
1,543,080. When it is borne in mind that each
card represents a postoffice some idea of tho work
may be obtained. During tho year two were
killed in service and fifteen injured. As above

The British Columbia Chinese Experiment.
The Chinese experiment inBritish Columbia so
far, arrears to have been reasonably successful.
A law of tbe Provincial legislature imposes a tax
of $00 per head per annum on every Chinaman
within its jurisdiction. The day it went into
euect, the Chinaman in Victoria all quit work.
They probably looked upon the rcgulatian as one
ot the unaccountable freaks of the " red-haired
barbarians, which would not last long. But
the result Las been quite the reverse. The law
has been rigorously enforced. If not overruled
at Ottawa it will be productive of marked results
one way or the other. Ihe property 0f China
men wherever found has been seized and sold for
taxes on a refusal to pay. Under these circum
stances the Chinese are beginning to think better
of the situation. According to the latest dis
patches they are returning to work, which means
that they are paying the taxes.
It is noticeable in this connection that, so far as
we are advised, they have made no movement to
quit the territory. A very short and inexpensive
trip would land them in ashmgton or Oregon,
where no such taxation prevails. There is, how
ever, no room for them in either of these places.
But taxation alwa3's operates as a two-edged
sword, rso Legislature can be certain that the
individual assessed is the one who pays. If the
latter can rind any one upon whom the burden
can be thrown, he will not hesitate at relieving
his own shoulders. There are about 5,000
Chinamen in British Columbia. At $60 per
head they would yield a revenue ot SoUU.OOU, less
the expense of collection. The expenditures of
the local Oovcrnmeut do not greatly exceed these
ligures. H e have, therefore, a bonus of 300,
000 per annum in favor of white labor as oppos
ed to the Chinese.
This certainly ought to do something toward
bringing about an equality in the competition
between the races, lhere is a discrimination
against the Chinaman of per month. But if
white labor docs 11 tLe gap, the tax will come
out of the community in the end. The Chinese
will gradually raise their wages and prices until
the employer pays the $00 per annum assessed
upon thcKi. On the other hand, if white labor
should take possession of the field from which the
Chinese have been driven, there will be nothing
left for the latter in British Columbia but to
'go.' Unfortunately if they take up their traps
they will bc very likely to precipitate themselves
on the Pacific tftates and Territories which arc
already too well supplied. S". F. Bu.'ietin.

We trust the Government of tbe United States
will act on this hint, and establish a pension rate
for clerk9 in the Civil Depnrtment, similar to that
accorded in the Army anl Navy, which would be
a stride in the much desired reform; and any
Congressman can do that favor to the people,
and claim thcirgratituc.es.
