President. The report, whlb ceintaining
much information of value conct ruing the
operations of the commission during the
vear. dcal with n number of subjects of
general public interest. The n marks of the
commission on the lmportame of merit
scst.-in In our colonial possessions; the need
of in iking somo disposition of superannuat

re-duction of the percentage of removals

Its enforcement, and the advantages to be
gaimsi by the classlflratl in of the foreo of

servl.e of the Duliict of Columbia, d. servo
special attention at this time.
The report opens with a preliminary
statement in regard to tho extent of the

which it appears that there are approxi

from the war with Spain.
The commission asks Congre'ss for power
to admlnlsttr oaths and to compel tho
presence of wltti.'sc,.s. This authority ts rot
grante-d by the civil service law. and the
commission has lieen unjustly critic lcj In -cause
of its lack of jowtr in this respi--:
in conducting its investigations, when the
fiult is in the I-ivv Itself.

CALVE'S NARRCHV ESCAPE.

New York. Jan. M.-Mme. Calvo appeared
for the firs: time to-niGht at a popular-price-

Were dense- masses of jHople, and there was
a throng six deep In the lobbies' The prima
donna spared no pains because her audi, nee
was not compose'd of theusuall fas-hionablu
class, but acted and y.niK -i vvondertuliy
as If her reputation was to be made newly.
The enthusiasm of the popular-price-rs in
these circumstances may be- imagined ta-
ily. and befure Turiddu was klllesl Mine,
t'ulve had found and won the heart of an
It was like to be her last appearance in
opera, however In the oih-hIiir chorus.
Mine Calve stood under the shelter of her
Iovit's house, -anxiously anattltic his ar
rival. Suddenly the front of the cottago
swaved out from Its walls, tottered, trem
bled and was about to fall on the head
of the prima donna, when two of the chor-ste-rs
.saw her peril, rushed forward and
held up the houe front until Mme. Calvo
escaped. The prima donna shuddered, lied,
and pulllns out her crucillx kissed it rever
ently. Hut for those admirable choristers
there might be an injured Calve to-day.
